December 8, 1887                    Thursday  Soo Road Directors' Train About December 15th The much talked of "Soo" has finally reached our city limits and another great tranacontinental line has been added to our list of railroads.  About a week ago work was begun again on the eastern terminus of the MSSM and A and in order that there might be no delay, Engineer Cox sent to Escanaba for an extra supply of steel which was brought to this point by the DSS and A. The rails are here and a few weeks will see the ballasting done, tanks erected and regular trains running between Minneapolis and the Sault. It is expected that the directors of the road will start on a tour of inspection about the 15th of this month, and soon after that regular trains will undoubtedly be put on, although the time for doing so may be postponed until after the completion of the bridge.  For the present owing to the difficulty in securing right of way, this line will run in on the DSS and A from a point a few yards south of the roundhouse, and during the winter the roundhouse and other terminal facilities of the DSS and A will be used.  Now, again, the people of the Sault have occasion to rejoice.  This line will open up a large territory which is sure to be tributary to the Sault, and together with our other superior advantages, will help the Sault to become the great metropolis of the northwest.
