To Name Mountain “McKinley”

     In the next New Hampshire Legislature a bill will be introduced changing the name of Mount Pleasant, in the Presidential Range, to “Mount McKinley.” There is precedent for the change, inasmuch as, besides the five early President [sic], only those who have been shot by assassins have had their names given to mountains. The name Lincoln was bestowed on the second highest peak of the Franconia group, and “Mount Garfield” displaced Haystack mountain in 1881.
