Construction & betterment notes.
Canada Atlantic.—President Booth visited Québec recently & had a conference with President Garneau & Manager Scott of the Great Northern with reference to pushing work on the latter road so as to give the Canada Atlantic connection with Québec city.
Central Ontario.—This line runs from Picton to Coe Hill, Ont., 104 miles. At the recent annual meeting it was decided to extend it 18 1/2 miles, from Coe Hill to Bancroft, but no definite decision has been come to as to when this will be done. It is quite likely that a preliminary survey, & possibly a location, will be made this summer, but no further work will be done until next season at earliest, when it is possible that construction will take place. (Official.)
Pembroke Southern.—We have been unable to verify the press report that a contract for building this line from Pembroke to Golden Lake, Ont., has been entered into. We have written several letters to the Manager of the Co., but they have elicited any reply.
Wabash.—A press item was recently published to the effect that this Co. was about to erect a repair shop at St. Thomas, Ont. Nothing definite yet has been decided upon. (Official.)
