Re: variables/objects with sequential naming?

I recommend writing a general purpose function 'set', then writing a more specific routine 'setGraph':
set [ name_String, val_ ] := ( Clear[name]; Set [ Evaluate [ Symbol [ name ]] , val ] ); setGraph [ k_Integer ] := set [ "graph" <> ToString [k], Graph [ cities, DeleteDuplicates@edges [ [ 1 ] ] ] ];
