December 31, 1887                  Saturday  The railroad companies appear to be convinced that the volume of next years ore business is going to be very large, judging from the preparations that are being made to h and le the traffic. The capacity of the ore docks will be increased at least 25% before the opening of navigation.  The new dock which the C and NW is building in Escanaba will have a capacity of 35,000 tons, making the total capacity of the docks at Escanaba an even 100,000 tons. The capacity of the docks at St. Ignace will be increased by 10,000 tons and those at Marquette by 15,000 tons. The docks at Two Harbors are to be improved and enlarged in order to allow an increased output by the mines of the Vermillion district. The railroad companies are increasing the number of their engines and ore cars. With adequate railroad facilities and reasonable lake freights assured and the prospect of a dem and  for ore very bright, it certainly looks as though the mines of the Lake Superior country are going to send at least 5,500,000 tons of ore, and perhaps 6,000,000 tons to market next year.  -Florence News  C and NW DSS and A Docks
