The distance from Chicago to Wisconsin points on Lake Michigan, will be about the same via Negaunee as by Eau Claire as Negaunee will be the transfer point from the south to the east and west on the northern rail route; it will largely increase the present transfer business. The recent changes in railroads will undoubtedly result in the running of more through passenger trains on both roads. Negaunee will then have no chance to complain of its railway service.
