The Lake Erie & Niagara River Excursion Co. is building a large wooden twin screw excursion steamer 145 ft. long, 32 ft. beam and 7 ft. draft of water. She will be called the PURITAN and is to run to Crystal Beach during the week and down the river to their resort Eldorado Beach on Sunday. She will have 2 engines and 2 boilers of the same size and power as the single engine in the PILGRIM. The PURITAN will be built exceptionally strong for both lake and river traffic and will have the largest carrying capacity of any boat out of Buffalo. She will carry about 1,500 people. Eldorado will be run this summer under the personal direction of Sloan & Cowles. Mr. F.W. Wagner who manages this resort last summer has retired from this firm.
