Mr. Kealley is one of the oldest residents, and, with out depreciating in any way the ef forts of many estimable men who have given their time and energy to wards improving the town, I think it is beyond question that he has done more to bring it to its present position than anyone else.

    "Sir,—I noticed in the last issue of the "Times" that some practical joker had suggested associating my name

    with any proposed alteration that

    might be made in re-naming the streets and town of Petersburg. If it is necessary to alter the name of the town, that suggested by some of the members of the deputation—viz., "Peterborough"—would, to my mind, be the most appropriate, as it so near ly resembles the present name that it would prevent any confusion as to its locality. Further than that, it would identify itself to some extent with our esteemed friend, Peter Murphy, with Peter Birks, son of one ex-Mayor, and also with St. Peter's Church, which was amongst the first establish ed here. Perhaps the joker in ques tion would not object to send his own name along—it might be more suit

    able. to such an important town.—

    "Why Not 'Petersburgh'?

    From 'ONLOOKER:'— During the progress of the war Parliament decided that the Teutonic taint in our nomenclature should be removed, and I do not agree with the writer who says that the name 'Petersburg' came under the ban 'hastily.' The Register has frequently stood Sponsor for the statement, based on most convincing evidence, that the cognomen is of German origin. The site of the township is part of an area of 311 acres selected, on behalf of Mr. Peter Doecke, who was then in Germany. Some of the land, running right into the railway sta tion, was purchased by Mr. J H. Koch, who, in an interview several years ago, I'm reported to have said.— 'As soon as the township began to spring up, about 1880, I named it Petersburg, after Peter Doecke." The story about an obsure Mr. Peters and his store is quite modern, and has been attributed to Mr. Koch, whose contradic tion is quoted above. If Petersburg was of purely Anglo-Saxon derivation, as asserted in the petition presented to Parliament, how was it that some of the principal streets in the town were originally christened Bismarck, Glogeau, Moltke, Kaiser William, Koch, Rhode, Rhine, and Herman? I believe that these names have since been changed in honour of fallen South Austra lian soldiers. The suffix 'burg' is the German equivalent for 'town.' (See Anther Taylor's 'Words and Places,' pp. 130). Thus the evi dence of the Teutonic flavour in the name 'Petersburg' is complete. What the town shall be called in tire future is no concern of mine. My only objection is to the attempt which has been node to distort historical facts associated with the nomenclature of this important northcern railway centre."

    Overall history of Petersburg/Peterborough, including material gathered talking to Ernstine Koch and the family.



    Includes this on the Peters' Store:



    "Peters The Storekeeper - There is an impression in some quarters that Petersburg was named after an early storekeeper called Peters. It is also a local tradition that this Mr. Peters was the first store keeper. Both surmises are inaccurate. Probably they are based on the coincidence of the name. The Peters referred to was originally a store keeper in Yongala in the days when that town was a city compared with the half-dozen or so huts constituting the new settlement of Petersburg. His store was on the stock road to Orroroo. Somewhere around 1880 Peters sold the Yongala store and moved to Peterborough. But he was not the pioneer storekeeper. That honor belongs to a man named Arnold, who was followed by — Hoskin. Peters was the third storekeeper."

    Sir—Why this sudden craze for outlandish native names? Granted that it is advisable to abolish German titles, could they not be replaced by good old British ones. A few native names might be scattered about in smaller country districts for senti ment's sake, but business towns, with any claim to importance, should have plain practical ones with as little alteration as possible from what they have always been known by—Peters burg. for instance, could be Angli cised as Peterborough, Pelersfield, Petersham,
