Metropolitan Ry. (Electric)—An agreement has been reached between the city council and the company which will have the effect of putting a stop to the blocking of Yonge St., Toronto, at the C.P.R. tracks, by the loading and unloading of freight from the cars on to the street. An action had been entered to secure an injunction, but proceedings were stayed pending negotiations. Under the agreement the company will provide yard accommodation for its freight cars.

The surveys for the extension of the line from its present terminus at Newmarket to Jackson's Point on Lake Simcoe, have been completed, and it is expected that construction will be commenced in the spring. (Oct., 1903, pg. 343.)
