Menominee, Mich., June 22.- From Maniatique to within fix miles of the town cf Munising on Lake Superior, a distance cf thirty-five miles, extends a railrcad which was built by the Chicago Lumber corr.pany. This road has been purchased by the Ann Arbor Railroad company, which will put in a car ferry slip at %nistique. The same company will complete the line to Munising and also build an air line'to Negaunee on the Duluth, South Shore and Atlantic and the Chicago and Ncrthwestern road, from a point ten miles south of Munising, the whole line to be sixty-three miles long. Work en the lines will begin at once. Boats will be run to Manistique durir.g the winter instead of Gladstone, and a special boat will be built for navigating Green Bay in the winter time, which will be run here continuously. The object of the extensión is to secure the flour trade of the west by way cf the South Shore and the Northern Pacific, and also to open up a rich timber country, between Manistique and the Marquette iron range. The new road may also touch the ci'.y of Marquette. This is the most important railroad deal consummated in many years and means much for the advancement of the upper peninsula's industrial interests.
