100 YEARS — 1913
The Plattsburgh Elks Lodge is considering the purchase of the Foquet House, a famous summer hotel in Northern New York. The basement and first floors will be used as a club house and the second and third floors will be used as apartments for Elks visiting the City. The Plattsburgh Lodge is one of the most active and energetic fraternal organizations in the city.
The International Amateur Outdoor Skating Championship will be held in Saranac Lake. The Boys Club of the Adirondack resort where the events will be contested announced that the rink will be reserved for any dates the skating officials may set.
Beavers have obstructed and built many dams on navigable streams across the Saranac River and several other places in the Adirondacks. The law prohibits disturbing them, stating that no person shall take or posses a beaver at any time. However, the law also states that should a quadruped become destructive of public or private property, the commission can issue a permit to dispose of the animal. The issue now is whether dam-making is destroying property.
