A historic day.
The first power from Niagara and the first train over the Canadian Northern Railway reached Toronto yesterday. In the history of the city there have been few more important events than these two. Especially important is the coming of Niagara power. Almost every big city in Canada has long been using water-produced electric power, while in Toronto the air has become like that of Pittsburg, and a dense pall of smoke from the steam plants hangs almost continually over the business quarter. Pure air and cheap power may not be a matter of to-day, but they will inevitably follow the harnessing of Niagara.
