Pembroke Southern.—The 21 miles of this line from Pembroke, Ont., on the C.P.R., to Golden Lake, on the O.A. & P.S. was opened for traffic Jan. 2. It is said the line will be extended about 50 miles through the counties of Renfrew & Hastings, crossing the Irondale, Bancroft & Ottawa, about 20 miles east of Bancroft & running to St. Ola, on the Central Ontario Ry., 12 miles from that Co. 's terminus at Coe Hill, thus completing a direct line to Trenton on Lake Ontario. The P.S. Co. is said to expect that the G.T.R. will extend its Peterboro'-Lakefield branch to connect with it at St. Ola, thus considerably shortening the distance between Toronto & Pembroke. We are informed nothing is known of this by G.T. officers in Montréal. (Dec. '98, pg. 263.)
