Considerable discussion has taken place in Glens Falls over the name which should be given the new steamboat which will be put in commission in 1911 on Lake George waters. Mayor Cool, of that city, requests that it be named, "City of Glens Falls" and another name suggested is "Che-pon-tic," the Indian name for Glens Falls meaning "a difficult place to get around." Others believe that the name "Horicon" should be retained.
(Note...According to Warren County Historical Society historian Marilyn Van Dyke, this sidewheeler, built in Baldwin, was named "Horicon 2" and was "the most magnificent ship to ever sail the lake." With a capacity of 1,500 passengers, it was dismantled in 1939 and sold for scrap.)
In other news, the total expanse of Main St., Lake George will be paved and the total expense will be $60,000 which will be borne largely by the state and the Hudson Valley Railroad (trolley) Co. with the village paying less than a third.
