The electric railway.

The ties are laid almost to the corporation boundary of Newmarket but having exhausted the supply on hand that work could not be completed. The poles are erected nearly to the pond and will probably be finished to the Water Works tonight. The men and teams are no hauling gravel and ballasting the road which is said to be about finished to a point halfway between Yonge St. and Newmarket. It is expected that all the bridges on Yonge St. will be finished this week. The only thing to prevent cars running to Newmarket next week is want of ties. We understand that several carloads have been ordered up north but they have not arrived yet.
