The electric railway.

The work on the Newmarket extension has commenced in earnest. During the past week there have been no less than 14 men engaged in the pits shoveling gravel. There have also been from 16 to 25 teams hauling from the pits to the Aurora toll gate. The King saw-mill, which has the contract of getting out ties, has already cut and hauled over 1000 cedar ties to the foot of Andrew St. near the pond here, where they will be handy when wanted.

There are 6 road breakers at Aurora ready to commence work as soon as the frost is out of the ground.
