January 12, 1889    Logging division trains have been put on the Western Division and there is a big dem and  for 34-foot cars in consequence.  The logs are hauled to Nestoria and Baraga.  Mr. John J. Connolly, the new master mechanic of the DSS and A has leased the residence on East Arch street now occupied by Mr. J. A. Latcha, and as soon as Mr. Latcha moves out, which will be soon after the 15th, Mr. Connolly will bring his family to Marquette.  The work of placing in the upper shops the machinery moved from Mackinaw shops is now in full progress and the big job will soon be finished.  Men are at work on the floor of the addition to the machine shop placing the big planers and others are at work near the roof arranging the shafting while the masons are busy under the floor building foundations for the tracks on which engines will be run clear into the new shop.  It is expected that some time next week the shops will be started up with a full force of men to put all the engines in shape for a big ore traffic next summer.  Work is accumulating so that the number of men at the railroad shops is being increased.  DSS and A Ry. Logging General
