Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., Dec. 21.—A new
development in the gigantic enterprise
at the Sault, based upon the water power
and government grants of the Lake Su
perior Consolidated company, is in the
line of lumbering. As in all his enter
prises F. H. Clergue is going into this
<:n a. large scale, and in a few years will
l)e on^of the important lumber manufac
turers of the country. As is the case with
all his other enterprises, too, he is fa
vored by the natural situation, of his sub
' tidies and grants and by conditions to
such an extent that he will be able to
figure out a profit where others will not
make the ends meet.
In the grants of land that the Canadian
government has gladly given Mr. Clergue
and his associates in return for the mag
nificent and unprecedented development
they are making in central Canada, 128

syndicate's Helen iron mine, 100 miles
north of the lake. Each of these town
ships, which contain more than 20,000
acres, is estimated to hold upwards of
150,000,000 feet of timber, pine spruce and
hardwoods. Most of them are accessible
to rivers that flow westward to Lake
Superior, and that cross, in their course,
the Algpma Central & Hudson Bay rail
way, that Mr. Clergue is building north
ward. These rivers are of good size, suit
able for the driving of millions of feet
yearly to the railway's crossing points.
Building Mill*.
At the first large stream of this kind
that the road has bisected the company
has erected and is operating.^, mill capa
ble of cutting about 10,000,000 feet of a
season, and it has been running for a
short time. As the road crosses other
streams and conditions are right, more
mills will be built. Villages and settle
ments of farmers will be started, and the
road will profit by the traffic in timber
that will result. At the Gaulols river the
company has started its first milling vil
lage. The electric lighting equipment of
the sawmill has been extended through
the new town, and the dwellings of the
operatives and surrounding settlers are
lighted; the same with the mill's water
plant, and both light and water are fur
nished at low cost to the workmen and
their families. Like facilities will be ex
tended as other mills are started.
At the Sault itself a larger mill will be
built. It will saw night and day the year
rouud, getting its logs in by rail, and will I
cut about 50,000,000 feet a year. It will
be in operation next year.
Timber of Big Growth.
The timber on these Clergue grants Is
largely spruce and pine of big growth.
The spruce runs up to thirty-six and forty
inches in diameter, the pine much high
er. Timber of this sort is far more valu
able, per thousand feet, than the small
trees now the rule iv the forests of Min
nesota and Wisconsin. It is the idea of
the company that it can save all the tree,
not wasting sawdust, bark and slabs as
in the mills of the northwestern states.
This is accomplished by the correlation of
industries tbat has been so wonderfully
brought into being at the Sault, and that
is one of the chief factors In the success
that these works are already achieving.
Mills for the manufacture of 100 tons of
paper pulp daily have been successful op
eration for some years, and a sulphite
mill has been making a high grade of sul
phite pulp for some weeks. The two
mills consume an immense amount of
spruce daily. Logs of less than ten
inches diameter cut on the timbered
grants along the road are used in the
pulp mills, thus avoiding the excessive
cost of slabbing small logs for lumber.
Then, too. while heart timber makes bet
ter lumber than the newer growth near
the bark, that newer growth has a fiber
more suitable for strong paper than the
older heart timber. Thus one hand is
made to wash the other, and by heavy
slabbing at the saw mills better and
cheaper made lumber can be secured and
sufficient refuse furnished the pulp mill?
to make their raw material.
In addition to this there will be & largo
quantity of refuse not to be utilized in
this way. sawdust, bark and edgings and
slabs. As soon as the steel rail mills of
the associated enterprises are started,
there will be required an excess of 6,000
horse power of steam daily. Now about
$4,000 horse power are used, which is
made from coal. Later the refuse of the
mills will be chipped by machine, loaded at
the mills on cars, transported to the
steam plants or rail mills, pulp mills, sul
phur reduction works, etc., and used as
the exclusive fuel where steam is re
quired for power or for heating and dry
ing purposes.
Steel Hail Plant.
The steel rail mills of these works are
nearly done; had it not been for delay in
the roofing contract, they would be roll
ing rails to-day. As it Is, the works could
begin the manufacture of 700 tons a day
of blooms immediately were there ad
vantage Jn it. The American Bridge com
pany is now erecting the rocfa and as soon
as these are on. the rail finishing ma
chinery, which is all on hand, will be
placed and work commenced. It is the
largest rail mill in Canada and probably
one jat the most complete and up-to-date
in the world. Almost everything except
the driving engines, is done electrically
and many new and advanced methods are
introduced. Two large blast furaces will
be ready next year and wood carbonizing
plants to make 300 cords of wood daily
into charcoal nro under construction.
These carbonizing plants will be of the
latest by-product saving type, and will
produce about 3.000 gallons of alcohol
and 24 tons of acetate of lime every day
Treated with sulphur, this actetate will
make sufficiont aee'ic acid to control the
markets of America, now dominated by
the German product.
LESS HOURS OF LABOR
The \\ «l Hi am Wntt'li Co. Voluntarily
Reduces the Hours of Labor.
The American Waltham Watch com
pany voluntarily offered to their three
thousand employes at Waltham, a re
duction in the hours of labor of one hour
per week, without reduction of pay. This
is very acceptable to the employes and
maiks a liberal and progressive spirit
on the part of the employers. The em
pioyes will decide by ballot in what form
this one hour per week extra will be taken
—whether by closing the factory at 12
o'clock every Saturday during the sum
mer, or at 3 o'clock during the entire
year The pay roll distributed at this
factory Is now about $40,000 per week.
The effect of the above action will be
that this army of employes, already well
satisfied, will receive a very substantial
share in the growing business of this
company.
