The Metropolitan.

Work on the Electric Railway in Newmarket commenced on Monday, but due to the west weather very little was accomplished beyond the removal of a big elm tree that stood right in the middle of where the track will be laid behind Mrs. Moffatt's residence. It was taken out by the roots and six feet of earth will be taken off the brow of the hill. The grade from Yonge St. to Newmarket is one foot in a thousand on a straight line. The track is laid to Mulock's corner and it is expected by Saturday night to reach the corporation limits. Engineer McDougall and staff were driving stakes on Tuesday and taking levels for the grade into Town.

We under that the Co. have settled with the Dennis Estate for $550 and Mrs. Bales for $1000. No arrangement about the Brunton property has been made.
