RAILROAD CHANGE IS REPORT SURE
Rumor remains persistent that the D & NM will be purchased by the Canadian Northern as a link between Duluth and Port Arthur although it is impossible to verify any of the rumors at the company’s headquarters. It is reported that the company is quietly securing a right of way into Proctor expecting to get into Duluth over its main line and then secure control of the road. The new branch being built by the Alger line west from North Branch Junction will be used as the main line and the line to Knife River abandoned.
