The electric railway.
Work at this end of the line is at a standstill this week. It is said the company has not settled for the Bales' property yet and in the meantime work is being continued filling between the ties at the southern end of the line. It is not likely that the road will be running further than to Bond's Lake by the 1st of July. The material used and labor in construction is estimated from $8000 to $9000 per mile. The gauge between Toronto and Richmond Hill is being changed this week to railway width.
