Stanton, colonel of the corps of government engineers for this district, and T.T. Howard assistant engineer, came to this city Tuesday afternoon from Boston and, in company with H.E.

The decision recently made by the inspector and Mr.Cashman, that no more work could be done on the breakwater this year because of the high water, was seconded by Colonel Stanton and it is now fully decided to postpone the work until next year. This decision leaves about 350 feet at the northern end of the breakwater which is unfinished. The tug Pastime will be taken to Shelburne harbor and put up for the winter at once. Colonel Stanton and Mr. Howard will return to Boston today.

017 1919 James E Cashman Lake Champlain BFP detail
The Burlington Free Press - How Cable Was Laid Across Lake Champlain - The August number of Telephone Topics, published in the interest of the employes [sic] of the New England Telephone company, contains an illustrated story of the laying of the submarine cable from Grand Isle Cumberland Head. Although an account of the feat was given in the Free Press at the time, "Telephone Topics" story will be of interest, particularly because of its details. It follows: Mrs. Montague Casey in Burlington, Vt., hung up the receiver the other day after talking to her mother, Mrs. Jackson P. Snow, in Plattsburg, N.Y., and said to her beloved husband, resting comfortably in his easy chair, his corncob pipe going like a Pittsburg [sic] blast furnace, "Montie, dear, that line was just as clear as a bell. I am going to call mamma every day after this. It is a delight to talk over such a  perfectly exquisite line." "Montie, dear" yawned and said nothing, for he saw his-next month's toll bill soaring skyward. Mrs. Carey knew she had a clear line but she didn't know who was responsible for the line; who built it, what it was for and how it happened to be so clear. We know the inside story, and we are going to give it to you for two reasons. First, because it shows that the state of Vermont division plant forces are on the job, and, second, because it is a good story. More than two miles, or to be exact, 12,000 feet, of submarine cable was laid across beautiful Lake Champlain in two hours on June 16, by a Vermont plant crew under the direction of Division Superintendent Durfee. It connected Cumberland Head on the New York side of the lake with Gordon's Landing in Vermont, and improved transmission between Burlington, Vt., and Plattsburg, N.Y., and "way stations." The Western Electric company made the cable, so it was of the best, and sent it to Burlington on a gondola car. It weighed 38 1/2 tons and, when on the enormous reel, occupied a space only about [illegible] feet squared. Just another example of Western Electric efficiency in packing. To many it was a mystery how that heavy cable would be unloaded from the car and placed on a lighter. But in Vermont they do things. They do not sit around and worry over a little thing like 33 tons of cable. Guess until Division Superintendent Durfee knew one man who could do the job and do it right. That was James E. Cashman, a contractor in Burlington, and Mr. Cashman was given the job of moving the reel. How he did it we don't know and we care less, but we do know that there wasn't a hitch in the whole job. At 9 a.m., on a beautiful June day the reel was on a lighter, and, pulled by two tugs, started from Burlington for Cumberland Head, reaching there at noon. Two hours later the cable was made fast on the New York side of the lake, and the boats headed for the shore of the Green mountain State. Foot by foot, under the watchful eye of Mr.Durfee and Mr.Cashman, the cable was laid in the waters of the lake. At 3.pm., it was all down, with one end resting on the sands at Gordon's Landing and the other on the rocky ledge on the New York shore. Cable Foreman Parker, accompanied by Cable Tester Flint, made the insulation resistance test and proved that the cable met all standard requirements, suffering no damage while being laid. Some years ago surveys were made, plans drawn, and estimates prepared to cover the proposed line, due to war conditions. The time consumed in actually laying the cable comes pretty near being a record for such a job. To lay a cable of four quads, 16 gage and one pair 19 gage, with an armor of No. 6 steel, without any trouble is a real stunt. And it was the [illegible] of cooperation that made such a stunt possible. Mr. Cashman and his team of men handled the job from start to finish in a masterly manner, and no [illegible] that a record was established [illegible] as they were back in Burlington again at nine o'clock that night, covering a distance of 44 miles in addition to laying 12,000 feet of cable within 12 hours. The Mountain Home Telephone company represented by General Manager [illegible] and Foreman of Maintenance Vincent, were on the job, while our company was represented by W.T.[illegible] division superintendent of plant, J.T. McLauchlin, engineer; George E. Patriot, division foreman, C.A. Parker, cable foreman, O.P. Flint, cable [illegible] and T.W. Hyland, wire chief of Burlington. Pole and wire work was later completed between Burlington and Gordon's Landing and between Cumberland Head and Plattsburg, shortening the distance by [illegible] miles. The Vermont force did a real job in this work and Superintendent Durfee and his force are to be complimented on their accomplishment.

017 1925 Cashman Sewer Construction news detail
St. Albans Daily Messenger - James E. Cashman, of Burlington, contractor awarded the building of the new sewers on streets on the west side of the city, has commenced work. Already about 60 feet of 18-inch reinforced cement concrete sewer line has been laid on lower side of the bridge on Pearl st. This work has been done by hand, but it is expected that the ditching will be in operation by next Tuesday morning and the work will advance much more rapidly. All property owners should at this time have  house services put in as far as the sidewalks at least, as the ditch in many instances is 18, 14, or 12 feet deep. The city is placing "Y's" at all vacant lots and where houses are not located on the streets the sewer is being  put in. The city in placing "Y's" is doing its part and property owners should at least bring sewer construction up to sidewalks at this time, officials say. It will be more expensive if property owners make house connections at some later date.

017 1928 Burlington Bridge Built in 18 Weeks
TITLE: Burlington Bridge Built in 18 Weeks. James E. Cashman, Builder, Surprised Critics. BURLINGTON VT, Aug 4--With the dedication and opening of the new concrete two span bridge over Winooski River between Burlington and Winooski, the Army Engineers today took out the pontoon bridge, which had been the only means of direct travel between Burlington and Montreal since the floods of last November. Gov. Weeks of Vermont made the dedication address and paid high compliment to the work of the company of Engineers who, under War Department orders, came speedily to the assistance of the stricken communities when the old connecting bridge was washed away on Nov, 1927. James E. Cashman, the builder of the permanent bridge, started work on the bridge on March 17, before the ice had left the river and opened it to the public on Aug 2. Although confronted by most adverse conditions, including three floods, the contractor pushed the work with such speed that he surprised all critics who said that the bridge could not be completed within a month of the time set in the Cashman proposal. In one of the floods, a huge caisson was carried out, causing a delay in the construction. Unfavorable transportation conditions added to the builders difficulties, as deliveries of certain materials were delayed several weeks. But for this, the bridge would have been opened at least two weeks earlier. Mr. Cashman is taking a leading part in reconstruction in Vermont, as he is building 11 bridges in all, the last of which will be completed early in November. More than a million cars and a million pedestrians crossed the 400-foot pontoon bridge without a single accident, in spite of a turbulent stream with rapid rise and fall, ice jams and severe winter weather. Being a link in the main highway north and south through Vermont and to Canada, the loss of the old bridge would have proved a great embarrassment and severe economic setback to Vermont and New England had the war department not offered to serve until the new bridge was complete. The engineers, a detachment of the 1st Engineers of the family 1st Division of the Army, stationed at Fort Dupont, Delaware, will resume their military duties after nine months' interruption.

017 1928 Colchester Avenue Bridge Under Construction
The steel bridge across the Winooski at the foot of Colchester Avenue was destroyed by the 1927 flood. When the flood receded, the only bridge left standing was the railroad span over the Winooski, built by an engineer named James Cashman, Jr. It was only natural, therefore, that he be commissioned to build the new Colchester Avenue bridge, shown jhere under construction in June,1928. Cashman had moved to Burlington from Boston to escape the shadow of his famous father, builder of the Cape Cod Canal. Cashman had erected the Chase warehouse on College and Champlian Streets in 108 as a warehouse for his construction projects. He is also responsible for the present City Hall, Memorial Auditorium and the YMCA. - excerpt from "Bygone Burlington: A Bicentennial Barrage of Battles, Boats, Buildings & Beings," 1976, page 51
