July 17, 1888                            Tuesday  Editorial  The Sault News lays the flattering unction to its soul that the "Soo" is to be greatly benefited at the expense of St. Ignace by the impending transfer to the CPR of a controlling interest in the DSS and A. It is not in the least likely that the hopes of the News will be realized. The DSS and A has not been operated in the interest of this point or that hitherto.  The traffic that could be most advantageously h and led over the connecting lines at the Straits has gone that way, and that which could best reach its destination by way of S. S. Marie was sent via that route. The same system of h and ling the traffic that comes to the road will no doubt be followed by the new management. The CPR officials will hardly discriminate in favor of or against towns on any line that it may acquire, as this would be sure to unfavorably effect [*affect] the local traffic on the roads, and might very easily result in the construction of competing lines.  Just why the Sault people desire to see St. Ignace "done up" by the change is something we can't underst and .  Can it be possible that a place of the "Soo's" importance is jealous of so modest a rival at St. Ignace?  DSS and A Sam Breck
