ORIGIN OF NEW YORK NAMES POLITICAL POINTERS. It is right to punish those who reg ister as voters fraudulently, but it is much more important to punish the scoundrels who induce them to register. Kansas City Journal. The primary is the basis of our po litical system. It is near the people and the medium through which they express their desires in the subsequent convention. South Bend (Ind.) Trib une. We shall always have burglars and other thieves, but we keep them in tolerable restraint, and we shall prob ably always have corrupt practices in elections, but they also must be kept down. Hartford Times. New Dorp Replaced a Town Tbrlce Destroyed by Fire. There are some names of places in Greater New York common enough on the modern tongue, but the origin of which is not so generally known. New Dorp, on Staten Island, was so named by the Dutch to distinguisk it from Oude Dorp (Old Dorp), the first Dutch settlement on the island, which was thrice destroyed by the Indians. tld Dorp stood to the northwest of Fort Wadsworth, about where Arrochar now stand3. Two miles to the west of the ruins of Old Dorp the persistent Dutch built their New Dorp. The northeast section of Staten Is land, which until the formation at Greater New York was known as Ca tleton, and is still generally so called, takes Its name from the fact that it once formed Governor Dongan's "man or of Castleton." Dongan the Dongan hills are named from hin was of the family of the Earl of Limerick, and the seat of the earl in Ireland was Castle town, in the County Kildare. Many of Governor Dongan's descendants still live on Staten Island, some of them oc cupying and owning houses on the land of the old manor. At first Governor Dongan merely had a hunting lodge on Staten Island, and it is significant of the state of that portion of New York city at the end of the seventeenth cen tury that at a meeting of the colonial council the governor was entered on the minutes as "absent, being engaged at his hunting lodge on Staten Island killing bears." Bedlow's island, on which the statue of Liberty stands, was purchased in 1710 by an Englishman named Bedlow, who had amassed a large fortune in the East India trade and was an acquaint ance of the then governor, the notori ous Lord Cornbury. Bedlow received from Cornbury the privilege of victual ing the British fleets which frequented New York. It was a most profitable monopoly, having in it great possibili ties of graft. Cornbury is supposed to have "stood in" with Bedlow. When Bedlow died suddenly Cornbury seized all his papers, collected all the out standing debts due the contractor, and kept everything of Bedlow's he could lay his hands on, leaving Bedlow's wid ow and children in poverty. Bedlow's Island was bought and used by the con tractor while he victualed the fleets as a depot for his stores. Corlear's Hook takes its name from Jacob Corlear, the city trumpeter in the old Dutch days. Governor Beek man bought it from him. The governor also bought a country estate, the site of which is commemorated by Beek man street. The true meaning of the word Man hattan, originally spelled variously as Mana-ha-ta, Manhattoes and Manhat tan, la hid in mystery. It Is not even certain whether it was the name of the place or of the tribe which inhabited it, or of both. The old idea that the word meant Place of Drunkenness has been satisfactorily confuted, but what does the word mean? New York Tress. Spencer and Colors. Herbert Spencer's notions of art were very crude. His favorite color was what he called "impure purple." He wore "impure jmrple" gloves and, find ing that the furniture was a little som ber, had a binding of "impure purple" pasted round itiby. a seamstress. He cut the first strip himself and showed her how to stick it on with paste. He had his vases filled with artificial flow ers. He wished to have everything bright about him and consequently en Joyed color. When It was suggested he could get that in real flowers he re plied: "Booh! They would want con stant replenishing!" He wanted to know why the people should object to artificial flowers & a room any more than to an artifleial:'landscape. "Home Life With Herbert Spencer."
