The C.V.R. Beats St. Thomas.

The Court of Appeal delivered judgement on the 16th inst. in the case of St. Thomas vs. the Credit Valley Railway Co., dismissing the City's appeal from the judgement of a lower court. The action was one brought by the city for specific performance of an agreement that, in consideration of a bonus of $50,000, the company was to construct its line from Ingersoll to St. Thomas and run all its trains to a small station on Church street. At the trial the judge refused to compel specific performance, but granted the city such damages as could be proven. The city appealed, asking for a stronger remedy on the ground that it was in the interest of the city that the agreement should be strictly enforced.
