Vancouver Island.—We are officially advised that the contract for the building of the line on Vancouver Island from mileage 60 to 100 has been let to Moore and Pethick, Victoria, B.C. This section will carry the line to the summit just beyond the upper end of Cowichan Lake. The construction is rather heavy, as It Is to be built to a maximum gradient of 0.4%. No track baa yet been laid on the line out of Victoria. The survey and construction work is now entirely in charge of D. O. Lewis, as District Engineer, G. B. Hughes, heretofore engineer of surveys, having resigned to enter the British Columbia Electric Ry. Co.'s service. (Dec., 1911, pg. 1145.)
