James Bay.—The Ottawa, Arnprior & Parry, Sound Ry. passes some 4 miles south of Parry Sound, making its Lake Huron terminus at Depot Harbor. The people of Parry Sound have been trying for some time to get the O. A. & P. S. to build a branch to the town, but without success. It is now said that arrangements have been made with the James Bay Ry. Co., by which it will build the link as part of its line, thus making the start required by its charter, & that pending further construction of the James Bay line north & south the link will be operated by the O. A. & P. S. Ry. The work will be heavy, there being a good deal of rock.

Railways: J.B.Ry., O.A. & P.S.Ry.
