The land commissioners have authorized the building of a logging railroad between Star Lake and the A. H. Stange Lumber Co.'s timber holdings in Vilas County, a distance of eight miles. State lands will be crossed by the construction of the railroad, which fact required permission from the State. It was found that little damage would be caused to the timber on State property along the lakes. The railroad extends thru a previously undeveloped territory but, as no permit has been asked of the State railroad commission, the road will be used for log hauling only.
