G.T.R. betterments, construction, etc.
Hamilton, Ont.—C. M. Hays, President, and other officials met the Hamilton city council and representatives of the business interests of the city, Oct. 28, and discussed the railway situation. The claims of the city for a new passenger station and other improvements were presented, and Mr. Hays said that while a new station would be built, the company had to consider it in connection with the claims of other places, where improvements were necessary. The question of a site had to be settled, together with a number of other incidental matters, before any definite work could be undertaken. The company had expended a large amount of money upon improvements during the past 15 years; money was still being spent upon improvements, and there were demands from towns all along the line for equally large expenditures upon necessary upon necessary improvements. While the company was desirous of doing all it could to meet these demands it could not go further than its financial resources, or other circumstances which had to be considered, would permit.
