Canada Atlantic.—There is no later news about the proposed Union Station in Ottawa than we published last month (pg. 261) except a rumor that a scheme is on foot there for the formation of a company which proposed to buy up the rights of the Canada Atlantic, Ottawa, Arnprior & Parry Sound, Canadian Pacific & Ottawa & New York Rys. to the central facilities, & then operate the terminal, charging each railway according to the number of trains handled daily. It is proposed to erect a modern Union Station.

An iron bridge has been erected at Eastman's Springs, over a creek which for some years past has washed away the tracks during the spring floods. The bed of the stream here has been dredged out, & it is expected this will allow' the volume of water to pass without damaging the road.

It is proposed for the C. A. Co. & the city of Ottawa to jointly build a bridge over the C.A. tracks at Maria St. & the Rideau Canal, Ottawa, at a cost of about $40,000.

Railways: C.A.Ry., C.P.Ry., O. & N.Y.Ry., O.A. & P.S.Ry.
