NAMES OF CITIES.
With Some Flippant Comments on th?
Senior? and Juniors,
One might naturally suppose
that Now York, for so many years
the dominant city of the United
States, would have some natneso" "8
umong the numerous towns win
have come into being all over t'?
country during the last half cen
tury, but the ftict is that thoro is
not one town in all the I'nited
States named for New York, the
daddy of them all, so to say.
Maybe s incbody ?au say why this
is, but 1 cannot, though 1 urn sure
not n few New Yorkers have bad a i
band in starting new towns in vari- j
ous states. Our next door neighbor,
Philadelphia, its slow as it is alleged
to be, beats us out, for there are six
Philadelphias scattered about, and
Boston, grand old boston, has elev
en namesakes. Kven Brooklyn puts
it all over New York, for there uro
fifteen Brooklyns on the map, which
shows that whatever New Yorkers
may think of llrooklyn, llrooklyn
ites think more of lirooklyn than
New Yorkers think of New York
when tho\ go itway from their home
? ?itio> to start new ones.
S.in Prim iy< > hud New < b'leni
are no better represent et I than New j
York, while Chicago and llultim >r?
have only on- namesake up i ceo
though to bear Chicago ono would I
imagine that every other new town
in the country had been tunned aft
er It. Chicago has nothing what
ever on St. Louis in the matter of
accumulating namesakes one, only
one. each, and the only equality
that China ro is bound to admit'.
Pittsburgh ha> as many Inline
sakes ?> Boston, eleven, but all of
11 ?) combined haven't as much
iiionex Pittsburgh, and the same
might be said of Huston's u line
sakes in regard to brains, (bough
far be it from lue to say it. Wash'
inglon beads the list iit Ihe nuiul ei
of namesakes, Iwenty^eight, but it
is not the capital so much ns il is
the itnniortal George which curries
in this case.
Cleveland is only one short of
Washington, and why there should
lie twenty-six Clcvelunds in this
country in addition to tl.no in
Ohio I don't know. ! fancy some of
theni were named in honor of Presi
dent Cleveland, as every president
gets at least one or two postollieea
named nfter him as a reminder of
what be is lo postmasters. Cincin
nati is a smoothly sibilant name,
and Cincinnati used to be quite a
place, l>ut it has only two name
sakes, the same us Milwaukee, which
is famous in other respects than i;*
