CLERCUE'S_NEW  ONTARIO  His Big Steel Plant.  A steel plant with a capacity of  2000 tons per day ! Such is the  prospect of Sault St. Mslrie, to be  realized in eighteen months from  now. E. V. Clergue, one of the  oflicers of the syndicate conducting  the great Sault enterprises, outlined  the project in an interview. .At  present the syndicate is building a  plant which will be completed and"  in operation by September, having  a capacity of 000 tons of steel rails  per day.  To this will be added another,  having a capacity of 2000 tons per  day, work on which will be commenced this 5fall. The two plants  will have a combined capacity of  2000 tons per day, compared with  the capacity of 1200 tons at the  furnaces at Sydney, Cape Breton.  The syndicate will buy their iron  from the blast furnaces at Midland  and Hamilton, to whom they will  sell ore from the Helen" mine at  Michipcoten Later on; Mr. Clergue  says, they will build their own  smelter at the Sault.  The 000-ton mill now being constructed is 1500 feet long 300 feet  -(vide. One thousand men are at  ��� work _on "it. Mr. Clergue was unable to say' how* many men would  Le employed in the 'new mills, nor  how large the^second establishment  would be. . "���"'- -jr.-.. "' ~ " "  , Reference was^ma'de to the dispatches sent out from Detroit respecting a '$50,000,000'.mill at the'  Saiilc, promoted by B. A. Harvey  of Liverpool.  "You may say," said Mr. Clergue,  "that we have no connection whatever with Mr. Harvey or his proposed mill. He is an Englishman  who is promoting an entirely separate concern. He has been" taking  of buying ore from us. We will sell  oro to him the same as to anyone  else, if we have it to spare; but we  have not yet even made a contract  with" him to do that. We have all  the money we want, and aro not  looking for any English capital for  our industries."  Speaking iu a general way of the  ~syndicate's~enterprisesr~MrrClergue_  said they were at present employing between 7000 and- 8000 men* on  their various works between Sudbury and Michipicoten. Trains are  now running on fifty miles of the  Algoma Central railway, and con-,  tractors are at work on the-other  150 miles of the line, including the  Michipicoten branch. Trains will-  also be running shortly on twelve  miles of the Manitoulin railway,  south from Sudbury.  All Looking for Pointers.'

Men on the Road Send in Good Orders  and Look for a Good Trade  in All Branches.  The week's work has shown a  decided improvement in trade,  orders coming from all quarters,  which are au agreeable surprise to  local    jobbers. Representative  houses have had their men on the  road, aud their verdict���backed  up by acceptable orders���is that  trade is good-aud prospects bright.  As.was the case last week, orders  are not as liberal as "might be expected at this stage. Nevertheless,  the wholesalers are cautious in  placing bills and retailers are con-"  servative in filling orders. They  realize the fact that loug credits  are out" of date and accommodate  themselves to circumstances. ��� In  Nelson there is a wholesome competition in all branches of trade, the  result being that prices are coming  down in proportion to increased  shipping facilities and the extent to  which rivalry iu trade arranges  such matters.' The postal express  department has not been'as- active  as usual. Local merchants realize  that they have dangerous competition to contend with and are determined to meet it. Quick sales  and ready money appears to be the  prevailing sentiment, and that it is  a wholesome one few will be found  to denyr^      .  Money continues scarce, but.indi->  cations 'are not^.wanting -that the  stringency-is but temporary. -With  the opening of "the season prospects  improve.     Camps supposed -to be  closed down.are found to be opening up, slowly, perhaps, but surely.  Prom the.Lardeau' country there-  are many big orders coming iri.

It was gardeners' day,  and the progress and improved appearance of the flowers aud grass  were very noticeable this morning.  The work of installing the exhibits  in the art building is about to  begin. Work-director Colquin says  it will require probably a month.

The  weather today is clear and cool.  Phillips Big Stock Corner.  Chicago, May 3.���A panic, the  first real one since Phillips cornered  the market, occurred among the  shorts in May corn on the board of  trade today. Price fluctuations  were the most violent in years.  Having seen their losses grow  heavier with each succeeding day  for some time, traders who had  guaranteed to deliver May corn to  Phillips mado frantic efforts to get  it. The price went from 55 to 58  cents, 4�� cents higher than yesterday's close, in a few minutes. For  an hour shorts bid 58 or close.to it.  Then Phillips let out (500,000 bushels  at prices ranging from between ^50  and 58. It was jbliouglit for a  moment that lie was about to unload, and the market broke to 53  cents without a check. The drop  disposed of a number of tailers.  Under 57 cents, however, Phillips  sold nothing. In consequence prices  reacted sharply, when traders  realized that the end of the corner  was by no means at hand.  The French Version.

Short and Morris  Meyers were arraigned before recorder Goff today to plead to indictments for forgery, and Patrick  to an indictment for the murder of  the late Texas millionaire, William  Marsh Rice. . The defendants  pleaded not guilty, pending the  argument of demurrers against the  indictments; The- demurrers-will-  be argued next week. Robert M.  Moore, consul for the defendants,  then made a motion to dismiss the  forgery indictments. The indictments stated that the crime was  committed in September, 1901, a  date which has not yet arrived and  this made the^ papers faulty. Assistant-attorney * Carven said that  the grand, jury had remedied that  defect yesterday by filing superseding indictments in all four instances. The recorder thereupon-  refused to dismiss the indictments.  CITY LOCAL NEWS  The only smallpox patient in  Nelson is now convalescent.' No  more trouble is feared.
