Grand Trunk & Canada Atlantic.

Arrangements have been completed whereby a through & efficient freight service will be inaugurated between Montréal & Ottawa, trains running solid between these two points, obviating the changing of engines & crews at Coteau Jct. This means that the freight service between Parry SoundActually Depot Harbor not Parry Sound. & Montréal will be placed on precisely the same footing as the passenger service has been for years. This business will be centralized in Montréal & Ottawa, & Coteau Jct. will become a merely wayside station. As a point, of grain shipment its history has closed.

The difficulty in regard to the interruption of the through passenger service between Toronto & Parry Sound has been overcome. The alteration which the G.T.R. had to make in its through service by reason of the resumption of its old relations with the C.P.R. at the close of the rate war dislocated the Parry Sound connection. Arrangements have been made between the companies by which the daily through service by way of Scotia Junction will be renewed, a connection being made by the O., A. & P. S. Ry. at Scotia Junction with the G.T. express leaving Toronto at 3.15 p.m.

Railways: C.A.Ry., C.P.Ry., G.T.Ry., O.A. & P.S.Ry.
