Mi.       February 12, 1887        After Gogebic Ore        The L'Anse Sentinel underst and s from information furnished it that as soon as the survey of the main line of the DSS and A is finished a portion of the engineers corps will be details to survey a line from L'Anse in a southerly or southwesterly dir- ection to tap the main line, evidently with the intention of shipping Gogebic ore via L'Anse. It adds:   We learn that the DSS and A by reason of its easy grades, will be able to haul ore from the Gogebic range to L'Anse at as low a rate as the MLS and W can possibly afford to haul it to Ashl and .   When it is considered that L'Anse is nearly 200 miles nearer than Ashl and , that a long and dangerous stretch of lake coast is avoided by shipping from that port, that the shipping sea- son averages a month longer here, than at Ashl and , and that vessel rates are much lower, the conditions are certainly fav- orable for the new road to h and le a large share of the ore traffic of   the Gogebic range. With the almost certainty of the opening of the country to to south and west of us through the avenue of the DSS and A, it would seem that the dawn of a new and prosperous era for L'Anse cannot much loner be delayed.
