December 3, 1887                    Saturday  The Sault is not happy with the railroad. The Democrat says: "The express company evidently thing [* thinks] that they have a snap in the Sault, or at least we should judge so by the exorbitant rates that they charge on express matter to this point. Between the railroad freight charges and the express tariff, dealers at the Sault will be compelled to seek transportation for their goods by the old way. As a rule the express charges are more than the value of the goods. Who wants such accommodations? What wisdom there can be in such a policy as is pursued by both the railroad and the express companies, we cannot see. It prevents our dealers from a more liberal patronage of these transportation facilities and looks like a case of 'get what we can, while we can.' But it will not last long - thank heaven." The last sentence indicates that the completion of the "Hustling Soo" is hoped for. But the Soo will be busy at Gladstone this winter.  DSS and A MSSM and A
