Yates County Chronicle (Newspaper) - December 18, 1885, Penn Yan, New York THE CHRONICLE, FRIDAY, DECEMBER 18. gfemttfe freatilentlal Succession. Steven B. Aijres, Editor. Southern Dakota wants to bo a State. Will Ilusted or Erwin be Speaker of the Assembly Senator Teller has introduced a bill providing for, the unlimited coinage ol silver. Toombs thought that Jeffer- son Davis did more harm than good to the Confederate cause. The net earnings of tho New York Central railway are two millions less than last year. Only eight millions this year. Jay Gould is now said to be trying to obtain control of the Central Hud- son. Thought he was going to leave Wall street London is excited over hydrophobia and all the policemen havo been sent to limiting dogs. So far this year 000 canines have been captured. Logan will be tho Republican leader in the Senate. He is now getting into fighting trim and ready to cross swords with President Cleveland. Senator Vest says that there are more saloons in Maine than in West Virginia. Tho liquor traflie is a great evil and Senator Vest.ought to pull it down. Cornelius Vanderbilt is forty years old and an officer of several religions organizations. Thus is disproved Hie too common idea that the good die young. An insane woman set fire to a dwel- ling house at Ol.ympin, Washington Territory, nailed tip the doors and burned herself and four children to death. f A Waterloo woman has a lamp- chimney that has been in use twenty- five years without being broken. It is safe to say that it was never in use during her courting days. l former Mrs. Lee. EDITOR CHRONICLE I notice that one of the village maps gives the name of Keuka River to the outlet of Keuka Lake. From my earliest recollection this stream has borne the indefinite and meaningless name of the Outlet. There is no sig- j nificationin this. C'anandaiguaLake has a similar with 1he ex- ception that it does not resemble that oE Keuka in any other respect than the name. Other lakes have outlets. In fact they all have them, either vis- ible or invisible, it is safe to presume. The Indian name given to the out- let ot Keuka Lake was MINXKSETAH, meaning "clear water." I, for one like to see the Indian name of every stream, lake, mountain, hill, valley and all other characteristics land- scape maintained. The Indian name has a signification which ought to be perpetuated. Let us restore to Minneselah the outlet which is hers by all the fair- ness oE impartial history, both oral and written. It was a designation given it by the possessors oE tho soil and hunting and fishing grounds-bofore the white man dream- ed of the conquest of the American continent. By tho courtesy of pre- emption laws as well as of inheritance and transmission sanctioned by cen- turies oE undisputed possession, tho Indian name in every instance is en- titled to the floor. We likewise mvo it to the Red Sons of tho Forest to pay this tribute to their memory and rhe sacredness of their traditions, since it is only in name that we can render to the Aborigines tho things which were theirs. Give us Minneselah instead of the Navigation oE tho jilinneselah, (let us call has already assumed the proportions a problem. During the past season of navigation it has been almost n daily one. Let the steamboat companies combine and early next spring dredge out the channel from the foot oE the lake to the docks in Penu Yan. The people of Penn Yan should contribute liber- ally to have this work thoroughly performed. They cannot afford to close their pocketbooks against it. For, manifestly, unless tho channel the stream is dredged the steam- boats must, ere suspend naviga- tion Earlhcr than the foot of thelake. Such a condition of navigation over the lake would suspend a largo pro- portion of the travel and freight traf- fic. It woul'f prove a sore inconven- ience as well as a great loss to the business interests ol the village and the traveling public generally. Ship- pers would avoid the necessity of transportation overland by wagons which such a would in- volve. It would be an additional ex- pense which another direction would avoid. Incidental to the dredging, several acres ot marsh laiul that has been made such by an unnatural overflow, contiguous to Penn Yan and covered with unsightly stumps, would thereby bo mostly drained, and its malaria- breeding bed would bo robbed of much of its unhealthy influence upon the community. THE OUTUOT Let us out with it! A stream of -so much importance, should, as Shakspcre says, have "a local habitation and a name." On ils banks tho village of Penn Yan is sit- uated. A portion of Hie stream is navigated by all Hie steamers of Keuka Lake. Along the stream many manufacturing wheels are whirring, and along its devious course to Sen- eca Lake area variety oE pioturesqe scenes. These and other considera- tions 1 might give, deserve the recog- nition oE the beautiful and appro- priate Indian garb of Minncse'uli MILKS A. DAVIH.
