James' Bay Ry.—A contract has been let by Mackenzie, Mann & Co. for the construction of a line from the Canada Atlantic Ry. to Parry Sound, some five miles. No decision has been arrived at as to an extension further north of this line, although the Dominion Parliament in 1900 voted a subsidy of $112,000 towards the construction of 35 miles to a point northerly 20 miles from Parry Sound to the French River. The Ontario Legislature in the same year voted $3,000 a mile for the construction of a line from Parry Sound to Depot Harbor. (June, 1901, pg. 175, and Aug., 1900, pg. 240.)
