Description THE TERRITORY'S EARLIEST NEWSPAPERS tion, Lewiston, Loa, Mammoth, Marysvale, Mercur, Monroe, Myton, Ophir, Parowan, Randolph, Robinson, Silver City, Silver Reef, Smithfield, Stockton and Trenton. Many founders of Utah newspapers selected more or less routine names for their publications. Some others, though, were more imaginative and conceived one-of-a-kind mastheads. There's a numerical tie for the most popular name among the state's papers. News and Times have each been chosen by 31 founders. In both instances, hyphenated banners evolved. Times was blended with Reporter in Manti, with Independent in Moab and with News in Nephi. News was also joined with Journal in Brigham City, Express in Layton, Advocate in Price and Letter in Moroni. Second, but distantly, in name-selection were Record and Star at 14. Herald appeared 13 times and was linked to Journal, Republican and Beacon. Press was also chosen by 13 founders; Advocate and Sentinel by 10 and Sun, Journal, Independent and Enterprise by nine. Thirty six papers were given names that weren't duplicated. Many were short-lived. The "singles" include Loa's Advice, the Ogden Amateur, Brigham City's Bugler, the Censor of Richfield and the Chief of Eureka. And in addition the Kamas Courant, published from 1912 to 1920 by R. B. Rand, the Provo Enquirer, Nephi Ensign and Vernal Express. While it's understandable that the full name of the Deser-et News has no counterpart, it's surprising Salt Lake City's other major daily, The Tribune, has not been copied. Ogden once had a Freeman; Marysvale a Free Lance and Payson a Header. Only in American Fork was there a paper named the Item. The same was true of Ogden's Junction, the Lone Cedar of Kanab, the Monitor in Milford and the Mountaineer, a one-time Salt Lake City weekly. Vernal saw the start of the Papoose, Park City the Patriot, Payson the Payso-nian and Mount Pleasant the Pyramid. Early Brigham City papers included the Report, Nephi had a Republic and Randolph a Round-up. Tooele's Transcript had no duplicate, though the other half of its modern-day masthead, the Bulletin, was used by six newsmen of the past. 29
