Full Text

Important improvements projected by the Great Northern Ry. Co. are reported from the head of Lake Superior. The lease of the coal dock now occupied by the Ohio Coal Co. on the Wisconsin side of the bay at West Superior expires on May 1, and the dock will from that date be occupied by the Great Northern for its fuel business. The Ohio Coal Co. will continue business from its dock on the Duluth side of the bay and will possibly arrange with the Great Northern company with reference to the hoists and machinery left on the dock. It is also announced that the contract for building the foundation of a new 3,000,000-bushel steel grain elevator at Superior has been let. Its location will be on the site of No. 1 coal dock, now occupied by the Northwestern Fuel Co. The elevator will be modeled after the ones in Buffalo, but 500,000 bushels larger. The excavation for the foundation will require the removal of 70,000 cubic yards of material and the driving of 30,000 piles.
