Monday, Jan. 21, 1889  Through to Duluth  Washington dispatches announce that Major H. D. Blackman of this city and Howell, has succeeded after long and patient work in securing from Postmaster General Dickenson an order for the establishment of a railway mail service over the western division of the DSS and A from Nestoria to Iron River, a distance of 200 miles.  This is equivalent to a through mail service between Marquette and Duluth.  An inspector had reported adversely on the matter on the grounds that there wer eno regular trains on the line, but Major Blackman showed the superintendent that there is now a regular train service each way daily and that the train schedule would be satisfactory for mail services along the line.  The service is to commence February 1, and will be greatly appreciated by the people of Marquette and the homestead country.  It will greatly shorten the time necessary for communication between Marquette county and the Gogebic range towns.  Under the new arrangement the Mining Journal will reach Bessemer at 3:15 pm on the day of publication.  DSS and A Passenger
