Railroad extension

Transcription of newspaper article from the L'Anse sentinel (L'Anse, Mich.), Feb. 13, 1892, regarding the Duluth, South Shore, and Atlantic Railway company., L'Anse sentinel (L'Anse, Mich.), Source:  The L'Anse Sentinel L'Anse, L. S., Mi. February 13, 1892   Saturday  Railroad Extension  The Crystal Falls Diamond Drill has the following in regard to the contemplated extensionof the M and N:  It is now given out that the company will extend its line to Crystal Falls and thence to Sidnaw, in order to complete a direct line of its own to Houghton and the copper country.  The company now owns a line of railroad extending from Sidnaw to Ontonagon, or about half way between Ontonagon and Sagola.  As it now is, more trains are run over the DSS and A tracks from Champion to Sidnaw, on the Ontonagon route, while all the traffic to Hancock and Houghton has to be transferred to the line of hte DSS and A.  Increased traffic on the last named line has already compelled the M and N folks to take off one of their trains and future prospects for perfect service on tHe m and N by this arrangement are not flattering.  Hence it is said, the necessity of making the extension must inevitably follow.  This appears to be a very plausible reason for the extension and lends more stability to the rumor than anything has yet been reported.  It is also stated that if the extension is made, a line from Sidnaw to Houghton will also be built completing the line.  DSS and A M and N RLuedke
