In Its varied and troubled history.
It was a vast Industrial empire of the
north which Francla H. Oergu started
out to create. The scheme which he
evolved from hi fertile brain exceeded In
extent that which Andrew Carnegie lived
a lifetime to produce and then ucreeded
In brtngir.g Into existence only a small
part of Mr. Clergue'a stream of Industrial
conquest. He had In view the development
of a manufacturing world which would
have don credit to the writer of glitter
ing prospectuses when the South sea en
terprise were floated In London more tbaa
a century and a half ago. It 1 safe to say
that neither Father Marquette nor the
Company of One Hundred Associations,
who traveled and trapped and made dis
coveries la the spots which Mr. Clergue
selected as his favored ones, had dreams
of industrial empire auch aa that to which
tried and experienced financiers of New
Tork. Philadelphia and Toronto listened to
and grew enthusiastic.

Lake Superior dip Into the connecting link
with Lake Huron. Mr. Clergu planned a
Pittsburg, a Niagara and a thousand cities
of New England rolled Into one. There wa
a water power, canal which would furnish
as much power as that of Niagara. Steel

magician's wand which would excel those

for a century. Calls for the funds were
responded to freely, but an end cam. The
companies which he had formed dozens
of subsidiary companies were selling a
great amount of material to themselves,
but there was very little which apparently
found market outside the self-contained
enterprise. Dividends were suspended and
a crash followed a demand for additional
funds to make the plants productive. They
had been built, but were unproductive, as
1 a twenty-story building ready for the
tenants wrtth no glass in the windows.
During this time the world began to no
tic his work. In a new world, among the
rugged and wild lands of the Laurentlan
area of northern Ontario, there began to
take shape a vast manufacturing enter
prise. Its ramifications extended to the
haunt of the aboriginal Indians. People
asked in sober moments. Can thl enter
prise pay? They were answered. The
company was already paying handsome
dividends on Its preferred stock. One
talked to the directors and others who had
visited the scene of Mr. Clergue's opera
tions and on Immediately became enthusi
astic. The Influence of th promoter' en
thusiasm wa everywhere apparent.
People who an Inclined to belittle the
enterprise wer confronted with such an
array of information concerning the nat
ural wealth of the territory that they
found aolace in a quick retreat "We hav
Clergu' word for It." they were told.
"Look at th great power canal he ha
built. Look at our nickel resources he
has secured. Have you figured up the ex
tent of our or land? Do you know that
we control million of acre of timber
lands? Look at the strategic situation
from a market pofrit of view! We com
mand the markets of the north. We will
aell our steel rail to the entire Dominion.
We are on the waterway to all the prin
cipal centers of distribution on the Amer
ican continent. We have found a gold
mine and we will work It."
Those sentiments appeared to be the key
not of tbe Clergue syndicate. But these
who took th trouble to look the matter
up found that the same enthusiastic sen
timents pervaded many 'a bursted scheme
in which th same promoter took part.
From hi earliest and first venture, when
ha formed a syndicate to buiiJ a great
electric power plant at Veaxie. four m'les
from Bangor, hia native town, to the
greateat of all hi undertaking, the Con
aolldated Lake Superior company, there
has always been or.e flaw which. In the
end. worked to the destruction of tbe
scheme In which he was interested.
That Mr. Clergue Is th greatest word
painter in the line of modern promoters
is aomitted by all bankers with whom h
has ever come In touch. His ideas and
schemes are presented la so tangible a
light that tbe great Hooley of English
bicycle fam 1 thrown Into th back

but on working out destruction seems to

who cam to this country from Franc
many years ago and settled in Bangor,
where for a long period he was a dealer in
wigs and artificial hair. Th family, con
sisting of Mr. and Mrs. Clergue and several
sons and daughters, lived comfortably, tl
though modestly, and the children were all
well educated. Francis was graduated from
the Bangor High school in the "70s and took
up the study of law. He was admitted to
the bar In Penobscot county, and soon
afterward formed a partnership with John
FL Mason and the late Mayor Frederick M.
Laughton. under the firm name of Laugh
ton. Clergue ft Mason. Mr. Clergu early
developed a genius for the promotion of
great Industrial, and financial schemes, snd
soon quit the active practice of the law, de
voting hi time to the forwarding of a
variety of enterprise all of which gave
great promise at the outset, but none of
which hss ever proved profitable at least tn
Its original form.
First Prosaotlos) Behest.
He wa the originator of the project to
build the Bangor street railway, the first
electric line In Maine, and for tha con
struction of the road he formed what wa
and I yet known as th Public Works
company. A great electric power plant wa
built at Veaxie. four mile above Bangor, at
the cost of 1X0.000. and it is th heavy In
terest on that Investment that has always
been a millstone around tbe neck of tbe cor
poratlon. keeping It financially embarrassed
until very lately, when new men and some
additional money came In and, by careful
management, succeeded In keeping the en
terprise alive and. latterly, of largely ex
tending it scope.
Mr. Clergue also originated tha plan to
build a railway up th side of Green moun
tain, on Mount Desert island, neer Bar
Harbor, and for a few months, while the
trip wa a novelty, the road seemed likely
to tie a success, but after a few season of
inking money the road wa torn up and
its rails snd equipment sold to another
mountain railway company in New Hamp
shire. Interests Senator Hal
About the year 13&5. whea th railroad
from Bingjr t Bar Harbor wa built. Mr.
Clergue formed a syndicate In which Sena
tor Hale and others wer Interested to build
a summer hotel at Mount Desert Ferry.
The house, known ss th Fluffa was built
at great expanse, and for one or two sea
sons it did a fair business, but since then It
has been sold and resold, passing from on
set cf owners to another, and from on
management to another, until finally a few
year ago It wa taken by the mortgagees.
It haa never paid any profit, but on th
other hand has been a losing venture from
the start, although well located.
Another of Mr. Clergue's venture at
about the aame time was th establishment
of a steamboat line from th terminus of
the railroad st Mount Desert Ferry to
Annapolia. N. 8.. It being bta Idea to thus
provide a abort and picturesque rout from
Boston snd the west to Halifax, tha boat
connecting at Annapolis with the Windsor
and Annapolia railway across Nova Scotia
to Halifax. The steamer France, a fin
Iron boat, wa leaaed from Its owners tn
Etonir.gton. Conn., snd ran on season. Th
schema wa a dlaaatroua failure, and fell
through at the end of the first season.
Th Ice business on the Penobacot river
had claimed part of Mr. Clergue' atten

It. while thoe whom he Interested in the
