James Bay contractors.
The following news item referring to the construction of the above railway is taken from Monday's Globe:—"Contracts are being let for the construction work on the James Bay Railway. Today several parties of contractors will begin to drive over the line of the division s of the road that they will construct. Leaving Toronto there will be Mayor J. A. Johnston of Parry Sound, who will build twenty miles of the road, and who, it is said, has also a contract for all the ties and timber. With him will be two engineers of the company. At Parry Sound the road will parallel the Canada Atlantic for two and one-half miles, and will come down in a more westerly direction through Rama and Orillia. The height of land near Toronto will be crossed at Richmond Hill."
Stations: Parry Sound, Richmond Hill
