Hamilton, Nov. 25.

The President and Directors of the Wellington, Grey, and Bruce Railroad intend leaving here tomorrow to be present at the opening of the road to Southampton.


The following changes are about to be made in the staff of the Great Western Railway Company, consequent on the appointment of Mr. Wallace to the superintendency of the Hamilton and Lake Erie Railway. The office of the Assistant Superintendent will not be continued as heretofore, the extraordinary increase in the company's business necessitating the division of the Superintendency of the line. Mr. M. D. Woodford, Assistant General Superintendent, will have his head office at Windsor, and take charge of the Traffic Department from London, inclusive, west. Mr. Joseph Taylor, as General Superintendent's Chief Assistant, will have similar powers on the whole of the remainder of the main line east of London, the Wellington, Grey and Bruce, Brantford and Toronto branches. His office will be at Hamilton as at present. Mr. Webster will have charge of the train men on the Eastern Division.

Railways: G.W.Ry., W.G. & B.Ry.
