Ottawa cross-town tracks.—The Ottawa Town Plan Commission submitted a plan recently to the city council's cross-town track's committee for the removal of the cross-town tracks. The committee is reported to have discussed the plan and data, in the light of the correspondence between the city and Sir Henry Thornton, President, C.N.R., and to have decided to send the plan to the railway authorities for consideration. The committee states that no time will be lost in coming to an agreement, but there are a great many details to be worked out and the costs apportioned. The agreement, when ready, will be submitted to the municipal voters for approval, and the Ontario Legislature will have to be asked to authorize the city to spend money on works outside its limits.
