SHORTENS LINE BY MY MILES Canadian Pacific Will Have Direct Road to Toronto Next Year. Evening Times Special Service. Toronto, Aug. 10.—By next summer the Canadian Pacific will have direct communication with western Canada from Ontario over its own lines, in stead of by the Grand Trunk to North Bay, as at present. Rapid progress Is being made on the Toronto and Sud bury ranch, by which this connection will be made, as reported by W. J. Leonard, assistant general manager of the eastern lines, who has just re turned from a trip of inspection over the new road. The branch will be 228 miles long, and already 77 miles of steel have been laid at the soiUh end, and 11 miles where the branch joins the C. P. R. main line at Romford, seven miles east of Sudbury. On the balance of the road grading is finished from Parry Sound south, and from Bying inlet and Parry Sound the con tracts were only let this summer, so that this link will not be ironed until next summer. The branch is a very expensive one to build, as it Involves a good deal of cutting on the northern sections, and several bridges of which the largest are a steel bridge 500 feet long over the River Severn and another 400 feet long and 66 feet high over the Wahna pitae both these bridges are now be ing built, and will be finished this sum mer. The branch will shorten the distance between Toronto and .Winnipeg by SO miles and will be greatly used for the through traffic between Ontario and Winnipeg. It will not be very valuable for local traffic, as north of the Severn It runs through a very wild country, which, however, will prove very at tractive to summer tourists. The building of this branch will relieve the continually growing summer and autumn congestion of the Grand Trunk line to North Bay, which haB hitherto been used by both roads. Its con struction is also another evidence of the lively competition being waged in Ontario between the two big railways. PHOTOGRAPHERS ELECT. Associated Press to The Evening Times. Niagara Falls, N.

Cleveland, Ohio, Aug. 10.—The Iron Trade Review says: All indications point to great pros perity during the remaining months of the present year and at least the early months of 1907. Although the production of pig Iron for the year ending July 1, 1906, was 24,432,106 tons, nearly 1,500,000 tons more than the entire calendar year 1905, the pro duction has not kept pace with the de mand and there is now a marked scarcity of all trades. Seven new blast furnaces, having an annual capacity of 880,000 tons have been blown in this year and others will be in opera tion at not far distant dates, but if the present demand continues it is doubtful whether even this capacity will be sufficient. Prices are advanc ing more rapidly toward those of the boom period of 1902 than conservative interests like to see, and in this ten dency lies the only danger which now threatens a long continuance of pros perity. There has been great activity in pi or iron, especiallly In the west, and a prominent feature has been the In quiry for the future, some of It ex tending through the first half of 1907. In the east th'e large salse have been confined to basic, which have aggre gate dabout 125,000 tons, cleaning up about all of that grade available for this year's delivery. In Chicago about 100,000 tons Including all grades have been sold, and the demand has not been satisfied. In the central west inquiries are now pending for 100,000 tons of basic for the first quarter of next year, and the ruling quotation is $17.50, while the quotations on Bes semer for that period is $17.75 at the furnace. To Cleveland, Toledo and other cities, where furnaces are lo cated, Iron is being shipped long dis tances and some fancy prices are be ing paid. Among the notable trans actions of the week were 15,000 tons of Bessemer sold at $18 valley. SLAYS HIS CELL MATE$. Associated Press to The Evening Times. Lufkln. Texas, Aug. 10.—H.
