Point Ann Ry.—This line is 3 1/2 miles in length from the G.T.R. at Belleville, Ont., to Point Ann, where the Belleville Portland Cement Co.'s works will be situated. The line is being laid with 56 lb. rails. It was expected to be completed by Dec. 31, 1903. J. W. Griswold is engineer in charge of the work. We were advised Dec. 17 that the only work remaining to be done to complete the line was the bridge over Bell's Creek. This consists of five spans of 15 ft. 6 in. long, composed of timber stringers, and lies to be laid on the same. The piers were all erected and the work was waiting for the arrival of the necessary timber. The line is laid with 56 lb. rails, and will be used solely for the business of the Belleville Portland Cement Co., the outgoing freight consisting of cement and the incoming of supplies for the mill. The line is 3 1/3 miles in length, and connects with the G.T.R main line at Belleville.
