September 24, 1887 Saturday "A RR at Last" The railroad has reached the "Soo" and that historic town will ere long be in full communication by rail with the out- side world. The DSS and A which was completed to the Sault last Friday, will soon run regular trains to that point. The CPR will have its line completed to the Canadian Sault in a very short time, and not many months will elapse before the com- pletion of the international bridge across St. Mary's river, and the opening of the DL and S line through to Duluth, will place S. S. Marie in direct rail communication with both seaboards, when it will have unsurpassed transportation facilities both by l and and water. That the Sault is destined to become a flourishing manu- factoring and distributing center no intelligent person can doubt, after a glance at the map showing its position with re- ference to the great lines of lake and railway traffic. It is located on the connecting waterway between Lake Superior and the lower lakes, and at the point where that waterway is to be spanned by a bridge over which the railways composing a great through system of l and transportation must pass. In addition it possesses a water power of immense value and un- equalled stability, which a variety of manufacturing indust- ries can use to excellent advantage. Nature has done much for S. S. Marie and it only remains for forces now actively at work to mature their sure results to render it a place of comm and - ing importance. The Mining Journal sincerely congratulates its Marquette neighbor at the eastern end of the DSS and A on the bright future opening before it, and on the consummation of the first step in the direction of a realization of that future, which was reached when the neigh of the iron horse - that restless pio- neer of modern civilization - was heard there for the first time last Friday.
