Grand Trunk betterments, etc.


Western Division.—For some time the management has contemplated laying a double track between Port Huron & Chicago, & there is a possibility that the work may be commenced this season. Engineers have been employed for a considerable period surveying the line & estimating the cost of the additional track, & are still working at the surveys & estimates.

It is said a branch will be built from Port Huron, Mich., south to the Jenks Ship Building Co.'s yards if sufficient business is guaranteed. Surveys are said to be in progress for a new line from the west into Battle Creek, Mich.,to avoid a steep grade.
