Hamilton yards, etc.—It was reported in Hamilton, Ont., Feb. 3, that the G.T.R. had given instructions that certain lands on Ferguson Ave., were to be taken over, at the figures fixed on at a recent arbitration. The owners of the properties objected to the noises arising from the shunting, etc., in the yards, and arbitration proceedings were instituted to fix a value. The price fixed is said to be $96,378. One of the owners did not object to the noise, and another owner is appealing to the Board of Railway Commissioners against his exclusion.
