Inspect L. E. & N.

The railway commission passed over the L. E. & N. to Dover Friday. Consent has not yet been given for the union depot down there, although the new road is right alongside and ready to connect up. The road is now complete except for the electric work, and this is finished from Guelph Junction to Galt, and will be pursued through the winter. The road will be operated by Martin Todd of Galt, as general manager.

Port Dover Maple Leaf.—Early in the week some nine officials of the L. E. & N. came to Port Dover in a passenger car which was run as close as possible to the G. T. R. track where they alighted and walked down that track in a leisurely way and then returned to their car after which the car returned to Brantford. On Monday a gang of men were set to work constructing a switch to unite the two tracks. The poles and wires are now being set up between Galt and Brantford and from Brantford down in this direction. Just when the workmen will reach here is uncertain. The new station at Simcoe is nearly completed. It is rumored that this road will take up a portion of the marsh and, if not the whole of it, and lay a track down in the rear of the G. T. R. station and build a platform there for their temporary station which will be used until such time as it may be decided on as to just where they will find a suitable and convenient location for a permanent one. This statement is however only a rumor and may not be true.
