The Actual Pacific Coast Terminus of the Great Northern Railway.
By Purchase, in June, 1890, of the Fairhaven & Southern Railroad, and Vast Terminals and
Shipping Facilities, the Great Northern Railway has located its Actual
Deep-Water Terminus at Fairhaven.
FAIRHAVEN'S WONDERFUL GROWTH.
In less than one year an almost impenetrable forest has
been turned into a hive of Industry. The solid foundation has
been laid for a mighty city. Miles of streets have been graded,
E lanked and lined with imposing structures, some of which
ave cost over $100,000 each. The best electric light system of
the Northwest, both arc and incandescent, is in operation A
$100,000 water works system, comprising tome nine miles of
mains, delivers the pure waters of a beautiful mountain lake,
capable of supplying a city of 100,000 people. Three bank,
one a national, are established. Four saw and two shingle mills
in operation fail to supply the demand for lumber. A $100,000
hotel being constructed of brick and stone is nearing comple
tion. Several brick buildings are already occupied and more
are being erected. An Iron & Steel company, with a capital of
$2,000,000, has organized to work the ores of the Skagit mines.
Its furnaces, rolling mills, etc., will be located at Fairhaven.
The Chuckanut stone quarries are located one mile from Fair
haven. The Tortland post office is built of this beautiful stone,
and large quantities of it are being shipped to Tacoma, Seattle
and elsewhere. Valuable minerals have been discovered in
the Cascades on the line of the Fairhaven & Southern and
prospecting is now being actively prosecuted.

JGTThlrty-flve ocean and coastwise steamers already touch regularly at Falrbaven's wharves. Over $200,000 are being ex
pended in extending these wharves and other shipping and terminal facilities. The three branches of the Fairhaven & Southern
II. R. (now the Great Northern) are being pushed to speedy connections north, south and east. The direct outlets, northward via
the Canadian Pacific, and southward via the Northern Pacific, Union Pacific and Southern Pacific, will be completed during 181)0.
