Wire fencing for railways.
The increasing use of wire fencing for railways is shown by the rapid growth of the Page Wire Fence Co.'s business at Walkerville, Ont. During the past season this Co. has supplied large quantities to the Grand Trunk, Canadian Pacific, Michigan Central, Canada Atlantic, Erie & Huron, Intercolonial & Atlantic & Lake Superior railways, shipping in car lots of 7 and 8 miles each. The Co. also supplied the fencing for the Pembroke Southern Ry., and finished up its contract for supplying the fence for the East Richelieu Valley Ry. Among other contracts were 8 miles of fence for the Niagara Cataract & Power Co., for its canal near Thorold, Ont., several miles of fencing for the Hull Electric Co. on its railway from Hull to Aylmer, several hundred rods for the Dominion Experimental Farm at Ottawa, & some for the Canadian Soo Canal. Besides the hundreds of miles shipped to local farmer agents in Ontario & Québec, several carloads were shipped to Manitoba & also several to the Maritime Provinces.
