Railway development.

Projected lines, surveys, construction, betterments, etc.


Canada Atlantic.—It is not expected that work will be started on the Central station in Ottawa this year, as it is not likely that the Department of Militia will vacate the military stores building in time. (Feb., pg. 41.)

An item is again going the rounds of the daily papers stating that this Co. has decided to erect a second grain elevator at Depot Harbor, with a capacity of 1,500,000 bush. We contradicted this report in Feb., and are again officially informed that it has no foundation. The Co. has all the storage & transshipping facilities at present required at Depot Harbor.

The Ontario Legislature has voted a subsidy to the Central Counties Ry. Co., whose line is leased to the C.A.Ry., to extend its Rockland branch, which now runs from South Indian on the main line to Rockland, 21 miles, a further distance of about 7 miles to Clarence Creek, the subsidy being at the rate of $1,200 a mile.


Central Ontario.—The Ontario Legislature has granted this Company a subsidy of $3,000 a mile for 40 miles of line to be built from Bancroft to which point the line is now being extended from Ormsby to the Canada Atlantic Ry. between Madawaska & Whitney. (Mar., pg. 72.)


Ontario & Rainy River.—Track has been laid from Stanley, westward 40 miles to Lake Shebandowan. (Mar., pg. 74.)


Parry Sound southerly.—The Ontario Legislature has granted a cash subsidy of $3,000 a mile for a railway, not exceeding 5 miles, to connect the town of Parry Sound with the Canada Atlantic Ry.
