PREFACE 



The fourth edition of the Canadian Newspaper Directory 
may fairly claim to be a thoroughly complete and up to date 
hand-book of Canadian Journalism. The newspaper lists have 
been corrected with the utmost care, accuracy in circulation 
ratings achieved as nearly as possible, and the details concern- 
ing each paper carefully revised. Apart from its avowed pur- 
pose, the book will be found a valuable gazetteer of every city, 
town and village that can boast of a local paper. This 
gazetteer is compiled to show the business possibilities of any 
particular section of the country, and within its scope will be 
found very complete. It gives the population of each town, 
indicates county seats, gives the railroads touching each place, 
names the villages surrounding each newspaper town, shows 
the telephone, telegraph and postal facilities and mentions the 
principal industries and chief shipments. Its usefulness to 
advertisers and others who have dealings with newspapers is 
obvious. From no other source can they obtain the data 
given in this volume, which is the condensed result of many 
years' study and experience in the newspaper field. 

The Canadian Newspaper Directory is useful in a sphere 
wider than the local advertising field. It is an adverti.sement in 
foreign countries for the Dominion of Canada. Copies of this 
edition will find their way into the hands of hundreds of promi- 
nent manufacturers in Great Britain and the United States, 
giving them a better idea of the progress and importance of 
Canada than they would otherwise have. 

The condition and influence of the press of a country is an 
accurate indication of its advancement, and the fact that Canada 
possesses so many excellent papers, circulating so widely and 
extending over so great an area, will show outsiders how ex- 
tensive is the field here and how great its possibilities. 

A special feature of the Directory is a set of four news- 
paper maps, covering the whole Dominion. These maps have 
been corrected up to date, but instead of binding them in the 



8 THE CANADIAN NEWSPAPER DIRECTORY. 

book where they are easily torn, they are issued as a supple- 
ment and enclosed in a special envelope. They give in a very 
prominent way the names and correct location of every city, 
town and village in which one or more newspapers are pub- 
lished. This is a manifest advantage, as it enables the reader 
to pick out the principal town in any section of the country at 
a glance. 

The publishers of the Directory gratefully acknowledge 
the generous support given by the most prominent dailies and 
weeklies throughout the country to this and former editions 
of the Directory, and thank them for the promptness with 
which all the information asked for has been supplied. It is 
gratifying to note the increasing number of publishers who 
keep careful records of their circulation and furnish detailed 
and sworn statements whenever required, as evinced by the 
black face and starred ratings in this edition. There is still, 
however, a very large number who neglect to keep records in 
their own offices and decline to give any information whatever, 
which, of course, renders it absolutely impossible for any 
directory to give correct figures regarding their circulations. 
In such cases the ratings are of necessity only approximate, as 
they are based upon what information can be gleaned from 
other sources. 

Every care has been taken to avoid doing any publisher 
an injustice, and no pains will be spared to rectify as far as 
possible any error that may have occurred.

ORGANIZED ADVERTISING. 

Publicity Problems Solved by the Organized System of the Adver- 
tising Agency. 

The Advertising Agency of to-day helps to solve the 
problem of profitable publicity through organized advertising, 
the same as the problems of transportation are solved by the 
railroad system and the problems of communication by the 
telegraph, telephone and mail systems. 

Many of the leading firms in almost every line of business 
owe their success largely to newspaper advertising. Many 
have started in a very small way — the advertising brought 
active demand for their goods — with this active demand 
capital came easily, larger premises were secured, modern 
equipment introduced, expanded systems of production and sale 
inaugurated, economy of administration enforced, and with 
larger profits more extensive advertising, until almost the 
limit of consumption has been reached. 

Being associated with many of these successes in the 
capacity of advertising agents, A. McKim & Company are 
naturally interested in analyzing the relation of advertising 
and the advertising agency to modern business. 

Looking broadly over the field of advertising, it is 
apparent 'that there is scarcely any limit to its profitable 
application. 

Every manufacturer producing an article that the public 
needs requires to advertise in some form if he would make the 
most of his business. 

No business is so solidly established, or enjoys so large a 
trade, as to be superior to the advantages of advertising. 

A case in point — the largest corporation in Canada, outside 
of the railroads, the concern that is the leader in its line and 
has held the first place for over thirty years in the production 
of one of the great necessities of life, not only in Canada but 
throughout the British Empire, began a vigorous campaign of 
newspaper advertising during the past summer, and already 
this great manufacturing enterprise finds a vastly increased 
demand for its product and much more enthusiasm on the part 
of the dealers throughout the country, some of whom have 
even undertaken to co-operate by advertising the goods locally 
at their own expense. 



22 THE CANADIAN NEWSPAPER DIRECTORY. 

In this age of keen competition and close margins, business 
success depends to a great extent upon an efficient system of 
selling the goods, and advertising is simply salesmanship in 
print. 

Time was when a large capital was considered of primary 
importance, nowadays capital is easy to find if a firm has an 
article for which there is a profitable demand. 

The logic of this is plain, banks like to loan money to 
concerns that have an active demand for their goods. The 
secretary of the American Bankers' Association said : 
' ' Advertising moves goods, creates live assets — Goods on the 
move are good security." 

Brings the Buyer and Seller Together. 
A good article is of no more value than a poor one as a 
money maker until the public knows about it. Just here is 
where the work of the Advertising Agency begins. It places 
before its client the means of communication with every man, 
woman and child in the whole country who is able to read. It 
can lay out for him the most economical way of talking to the 
people of any particular district, class, trade or profession 
throughout the land, thereby enabling the producer of any 
saleable article to reach the purchasing public with economy of 
expenditure and in a way to secure the best possible results. 

Newspaper Values — An Unknown Quantity to the 
Inexperienced. 

There are very few commodities in which the basis of 
value is so continually shifting as in that of Newspaper 
Advertising. , 

In Canada there are over one thousand Daily and Weekly 
papers, outside of the Magazines and other monthly publica- 
tions. Each publication, from the big city Daily down to the 
little village Weekly, has its own individual basis of value, and 
that, too, is subject to constant change. Even if the circulation 
of a paper remain the same from year to year, there are many 
other conditions that influence the price which the publisher 
will ask for his space. It is therefore evident at a glance that 
the producer who starts out unaided in an extensive campaign 
of newspaper advertising, would go floundering around in the 
dark, wasting valuable time and a great deal of money in 
gaining the knowledge which he could have had for the asking 
from the experienced agency, without it costing him a single 
dollar. 



the canadian newspaper directory. 23 

What the Agency Must Know. 

To have absolutely correct information as to the circula- 
tion of every newspaper would make a long draft upon all the 
knowledge of gods and men. Only the agency with the work 
of many years behind it, and the knowledge gained by the 
regular publication of such a work as The Canadian Newspaper 
Directory, can be expected to give to an advertiser anything 
like correct figures regarding circulations. But circulation is 
only one of the many things that go to make up the value of 
a newspaper as an advertising medium. The quality of the 
circulation is almost as important as the quantity. A paper 
circulating entirely among the working classes is of little value 
to the advertiser of an article which only the rich can afford to 
buy and vice versa. 

A paper may be well or badly printed — contain a great 
deal of original matter and small proportion of advertising, or 
the reverse — it may be made up largely of " boiler-plate " of 
little interest to anybody, or nearly all of local news that is of 
live interest to everybody — it may comprise four outside pages 
of live matter and four inside pages where the black cure-all 
advts. are dumped — it may, in its editorial columns, advocate 
principles which are diametrically opposed to the interests of 
certain advertisers — and there are many other circumstances 
and conditions that must be taken into consideration in estimat- 
ing the real value of a medium to any particular advertiser. 

The Agency, besides knowing the papers, must know 
something of the localities in which they are published, the 
class of people they reach, and something of their habits and 
modes of living, the class of goods that meet their requirements. 
As an illustration — some districts are large consumers of tea — 
others drink coffee almost entirely. Throughout the Province 
of Quebec large quantities of tonic wines are used, while in 
parts of Ontario and the Maritime Provinces to advertise 
anything of a spiritous nature would be absolute waste of 
money. The up-to-date agency must be informed upon all 
these points, and be able to use the information intelligently in 
placing the business of its customers. 

Prices. 

In the Advertising Agency business, as in all other lines 
of trade, the concern that has ample capital and controls the 
largest volume of business is in the best position to command 
the lowest prices. It goes without saying, therefore, that an 



24 THE CANADIAN NEWSPAPER DIRECTORY. 

Agency, such as A. McKim & Co., carrying well on to half a 
million of business yearly with the newspapers of Canada, can 
get for its clients everything in the way of price, position and 
other preferments that it is possible to secure. The publishers 
of the'country recognize this Agency, with its splendid system 
and its admirable methods of paying accounts promptly, as 
business builders, and are anxious therefore to assist them in 
every reasonable way- in their work of promoting and creating 
advertising. 

There are Agencies and Agencies. 
As in other lines of business, and other professions, only 
by long experience, large practice, extensive operations, can 
one gain the information, create the system, build up the 
organization necessary to render the most efficient service. 
The so-called agent, with office inhis hat, without information, 
experience or capital, who exists for the purpose of trying to 
get the legitimate agent's commission, has come to be considered 
a destroyer rather than a promoter of the best interests of 
advertiser and publisher, and is not now recognized by papers 
of any importance. 

Planning Advertising is the First Step. 

Each of the large general advertisers throughout the 
country who are clients of A. McKim & Co. has added valuable 
experience to the Agency's store of knowledge. Experience 
in advertising eliminates experimentati n. Experiments are 
often expensive, but they are reduced to the minimum by an 
Agency that has scored many successes and secured the know- 
ledge that enables it to steer clear of the breakers which are 
likely to bring disastrous results. 

This experience is particularly valuable in the first step of 
profitable advertising — the planning. 

A Campaign well Planned is Half Won. 

To plan well, the agent must know the field to be 
cultivated for the particular article to be advertised, the amount 
of money necessary to be expended. He must consider the 
people that are to be influenced, whether men or women, or 
both, whether rich or poor, or everybody, whether city or 
country, whether English or French, or both — and this is 
important in Canada — very important. The points that must 
be brought out to influence trade. The points that will 
stimulate the dealer as well as the consumer. What papers to 
use — whether Dailies or Weeklies, or both. What size of

advts. will bring the best results for the money. What style 
of type will get the best display in the space. What wording. 
What illustrations, if any. What booklets, circulars, and 
follow-up letters should be u.sed so that all may work in 
harmony and within the appropriation, and all be done at the 
right time. 

He must suggest, devise, revise, estimate, consult until 
he has secured a plan that is all-embracing, a plan that will 
avoid the mistakes other advertisers have made, that will bring 
out the full selling force of the article advertised, that will be 
adapted to the field where it is put into operation and that will 
meet the approval of both the advertiser and the newspapers, 
for upon harmony of effort by the advertiser, the agency and 
the newspapers, depends a great part of advertising success. 

It is safe to say that many a large advertiser would never 
have used the newspapers at all but for the agent, who planned 
his campaign so as to enable him to grow from small 
beginnings to large results. 

Preparing Advertising. 

Next to planning comes the preparing. 

For this the Agency has to maintain a staff of advt. writers 
and illustrators, who must take up the points which have been 
decided upon in the planning and put them into advts. which 
are the right size, style, shape, tone and type. The Agency 
and its staff of artists, writers and experts, working in con- 
junction with the advertiser with his practical knowledge of 
the goods, turn out a series of advertisements that -will tell the 
story in such a way as to attract and influence the public — 
creating for each different advertiser a style of advertising 
that will fittingly represent the goods advertised. 

After copy and illustrations comes the problem of getting 
the best effect with type and cuts in the different classes of 
publications which must be used. What would come out well 
in a magazine might appear only as a black smudge in the 
ordinary daily paper. Usually an entirely different character 
of advt. is required for publications that use highly calendered 
paper. Again, a style of advt. which would be suitable for a 
medicine would be quite inappropriate for a brand of flour. 

The advts. of each advertiser should have a distinctive 
appearance — an originality of typeseting and illustrating that 
will make his advertisements stand out from other advertise- 
ments and be seen and read wherever they are published. 



26 THE CANADIAN NEWSPAPER DIRECTORY. 

Thus the Agency works with the engraver and the com- 
positor to get the right result, and even goes so far as to have 
special fonts of type purchased to give his client something new. 

Then there is the question of plates. 

Most general advertising goes out in plate form, as in no 
other way can an advertiser have his advertisement appear 
exactly as wanted in ,each paper. The type is sent from the 
printer to an electrotyper and a copper plate electro made of 
each advertisement. This electrotype is kept as an original 
from which duplicates can be made at any time. From the 
original electrotype a sufficient number of duplicate stereo 
plates is made to furnish each paper on the list with a complete 
set of the advertisements to beused. 

The plates put out by A. McKim & Co. are the finest 
that modern machinery and equipment can produce, and their 
requirement is so large as to take almost the entire output of 
one stereotype factory. 

Now, as to the placing of advertising. 

The Advertising Agent as a Purchaser of Space. 

The agent having figured as counsel of advertising, editor 
of advertising, and distributor of advertising, is called upon 
to serve also in the capacity of purchasing agent. He is for 
his clients the expert buyer of advertising space. 

He has all the advantages that accrue from long experience 
and from doing this work for a large number of clients — 
practically a purchasing combination by which each client 
secures many advantages. In the case of A. McKim & Co. 
this advantage is particularly notable, as the amount of 
advertising purchased in Canadian newspapers by this agency 
exceeds that of all other Canadian agencies combined. 

All dealings with A. McKim & Co. are free and above 
board. The exact amount paid to each paper is known to the 
client. The advertiser has access to every item regarding his 
expenditures, the same as he would have if the accounts were 
kept under his own roof. In effect the advertising agency 
might be a department of his business as far as transactions 
for his account are concerned. Likewise every publisher may 
know the exact amount paid to this agency by any advertiser 
for his particular paper. By this method a mutual confidence 
is at once established between the advertiser, the agency and 
the publisher. 










GENERAL OFFICE— TORONTO BRANCH 




MR. SOMERSETS PRIVATE OFRCE-TCRONTO BRANCH 



THE CANADIAN NEWSPAPER DIRECTORY. 27 

Every issue of every paper in which a client's advertising 
appears is carefully checked to see that he gets what is 
contracted for — the right position, the right insertion and the 
right space — and these kept on file as vouchers which the 
client may examine at any time. 

The accounting is done as it is in a bank — with a system 
that brings the most perfect and accurate results— a large staff 
being maintained so that the work can be subdivided into 
departments with responsible heads to supervise the details ; in 
fact the manager of one of the largest agencies of the United 
States, after visiting the McKim Agency a few months ago, 
said that this agency has the most complete system of any 
agency on the continent, a fact mentioned to show that Canada 
in this particular is quite abreast with any other nation. 

The McKim Agency may be considered conservative, in 
that it invariably recommends spending the smallest amount 
of money that will do the work effectually. The plans are 
carefully thought out, large advertisements being used when 
they will be most effective, but never for the sake of size. 
Advts. are illustrated or not, accordingly as they will bring 
the best results for the money. What is aimed at all through 
is not so much "smart" advertising, but the honest, frank, 
confidence-inspiring advts. that make the reader feel like 
giving the article a trial. 

A. McKiM & Co.'s Toronto Branch. 

For many years a great many of the leading advertisers of 
Toronto and the West have been regular clients of this agency, 
but the rapid development of the advertising idea throughout 
Ontario a few years ago necessitated the establishment of 
offices in Toronto, with a local manager and full staff, in order 
that every requirement of Western advertisers might be 
promptly attended to. The wisdom of the enterprise has 
been amply proven by the increased volume of business from 
that territory. Many Ontario manufacturers who had never 
advertised before, have taken advantage of the greater facilities 
offered by A. McKim & Co. and are increasing their appropria- 
tions year by year. Now, with fully equipped offices in 
Canada's two chief cities, and with correspondents in New 
York, Boston and London, England, this agency is one of the 
strongest influences of the present day in the field of profitable 
publicity. 



28 THE CANADIAN NEWSPAPER DIRECTORY. 

The following extracts from letters 
on A, McKim & Go's files, go to show 
their standing with the newspapers. 
They like intending advertisers to 
write to any of their clients or to any 
Canadian publisher regarding their 
methods of doing business. 

I desire to add my warmest appreciation and thanks for the uniformly 
kind and meritorious treatment to the "Free Press " by you, and the very 
prompt and equitable settlements made by you in our dealings covering- a 
period of over fifteen years, without a single omission. 

OTTAWA, ONT., FREE PRESS. 

We shall always be pleased to consider any offer you may have to 
make for advertising, as it is always pleasant to do business with you 
when the prices are right. 

ST. JOHN, N.B., GLOBE. 

Yours of recent date with enclosures received and contents noted. I 
have to congratulate you upon the size of the .... advts. Had we 
a few more agencies like your good selves we should soon have to still 
further increase the size of our paper. 

VICTORIA, B.C., COLONIST. 

I have concluded to take the .... advt. at the price you offer, 
not that I desire it or any other at that price, but it is in consideration of 
the amount of business we do with you and the promptness with which 
payments are made, making it a pleasure to do business with you. I would 
not do it for any one else. 

NAPANEE, ONT., BEAVER. 

It is a pleasure to do business with those who are so prompt and 
satisfactory in their remittances as you are. 

Hoping for a continuance of your patronage. 

TORONTO, ONT., WEEKLY SUN. 

We are taking your advertising at lower rates than those of any other 
agency, because we are better satisfied with your system of paying. 

CHATHAM, N.B., WORLD. 

After some experience in dealing with unreliable concerns we have 
decided that it is better to take matter at a low rate from a good house 
than at a high rate from a poor house. 

WOODSTOCK, N.B., DESPATCH. 

I have never given this rate or its equivalent before, and would do so 
for no other firm . 

PICTOU. N.S., COLONIAL STANDARD. 



THE CANADIAN NEWSPAPER DIRECTORY. 29 

For your very prompt payments and really easy settlements I offer 
my very best thanks. 

OSHAWA, ONT., REFORMER. 

We like to do business with you because you pay all you agree to. 
The fault we find is that you don't agree to pay enough. 

COATICOOK, QUE., OBSERVER. 

Your favor received with cheque in full for account. Accept thanks 
for your prompt settlement. This is one of the pleasures of doing- business 
with you. 

SHERBROOKE, QUE., RECORD. 

We accept the .... advt., notwithstanding the exceptionally 
low rate, because of our pleasant business relations with you. 

NEW WESTMINSTER, B.C., COLUMBIAN. 

At present we could not give the position at any price, thoug-h speak- 
ing- sincerely, we would like to take everything you have to offer, because 
yours is the one Canadian Agency that we can depend upon for prompt 
payment of bills. 

TILLSONBURG, ONT., OBSERVER. 

We are anxious to do business with you, because our business 
relationship has been so pleasant in the past, and you have been so prompt 
with your payments. 

BEETON, ONT., WORLD. 

The regularity of your cheques make your propositions enticing, 
though we lose money by them. 

RICHMOND, QUE., GUARDIAN. 

Your offer for .... is low, but as we have no trouble in collect- 
ing from you we do not propose sticking for a few dollars. 

OWEN SOUND, ONT., SUN. 

We never expect to do business with a more satisfactory advertising 
agency than your one. We hope to be able to give more attention to 
advertising matter this year than during the past few months, and trust 
that we may still be favored by your company. 

WINDSOR, N.S., TRIBUNE. 

We would prefer all our foreign business going through your agency, 
which we are pleased to say we have found satisfactory in every respect. 

NANAIMO, B.C., FREE PRESS. 

This matter is quite satisfactory and we ask you to kindly accept 
thanks for your promptness. It is a pleasure to do business with people 
who conduct their affairs in so business like a way as does your firm. We 
are only sorry that more of your business does not come this way so that 
we could have a fatter statement from you each month. The early receipt 
and satisfactory condition of these statements are very gratifying. 

OTTAWA, ONT., JOURNAL. 

Aside from a consideration that we are not getting enough for some of 
our contracts, we have reason to be satisfied with our dealings with you, 
not only because you pay what you agree to every time, but also because 
we find your checking accurate. 

GUELPH, ONT., MERCURY.

ONTARIO. 33 



PROVINCE OF ONTARIO. 



Ontario is the most populous and wealthy of all the provinces of 
Canada. It has a land area of 219,650 square miles and a water area of 
2,350 square miles; with a population at the census of 190 1 of 2, 182,947. 
It has 38 counties besides seven districts as large as some European states, 
out of which future counties will be formed. The province has 1 5 incorporated 
cities, 112 incorporated towns and about 131 (org-anized) villag'es. Its 
facilities for railway and water communication combined are not surpassed 
by any division of the American continent. The River St. Lawrence and 
the great lakes, Ontario, Erie, Huron and Superior, touch it on its entire 
southern and western boundaries, while from the " Height of land," which 
forms the back bone of the province, many fine rivers flow down to those 
lakes on the south, or to James Bay or Hudsons Bay on the north. No 
important county is unreached by a railway, and out o? d total of 16,687 
miles of railway in Canada 6,647 miles, or about 40 per cent, are in 
Ontario. In the extent and variety of its agricultural, dairy and fruit 
products Ontario leads the Dominion, while its wealth of gold, nickel and 
other valuable minerals is proving to be greater than was ev'er anticipated 
by geologists ten years ago. The province in 1903 showed 639,581 head 
of horses, 2,674,261 head of cattle, 1,642,726 head of sheep, and 1,977,386 
head of swine, while some items of the agricultural products in the same 
year were as follows : 21,893,470 bushels of wheat, 24,378,817 bushels of 
barley, 110,228,103 bushels of oats, 8,924,650 bushels of pease, 6,000,000 
bushels of other grain, 16,676,447 bushels of potatoes, 113,697,358 bushels 
of turnips and other feeding roots, and 6,900,962 tons of hay and silage. 
The average yield per acre of crops in Ontario, though not so large as in 
the Northwest Provinces and Territories, is greater than in any state in 
the American Union, the comparison holding good in all kinds of grain in 
all states, except one kind of grain in one state — oats in Kansas. The 
production of cheese in 1902 was 146,805,776 lbs., that of creamery butter 
11,082,078 lbs., and of home made butter 55,932,353 lbs. In 1902 Ontario 
had 5,671 public schools, besides 391 Roman Catholic separate schools, 
and 6 Protestant separate schools, 120 kindergartens and 11 night schools. 
Of pupils, the public schools had 408,124, the R.C. separate schools 45,964, 
the Protestant separate schools 466, the kindergartens 11,300, the night 
schools 670. The teachers in public schools numbered 8,497, ^"'^ •" 
all other primary schools 1,164, making a total of 9,661 primary teachers. 
In higher education Ontario has a normal college and three normal 
schools for the training of teachers, over 40 model schools, an art and 
industrial school, two technical schools, 134 high schools and collegiate 
institutes, with 24,472 pupils and 593 teachers. It has also a training 
institute, at Guelph, for teachers and others in manual training and 
domestic science and art. It has 140 free and 306 subscription libraries. 
In 1902 the province had 3,321 post offices, through which passed 
105,600,000 letters, and 17,180,000 post cards, 2,332,000 registered 
letters, 5,172,000 free letters, and $10,565,274 in money orders. Ontario 
is represented in the Dominion parliament by 24 senators and 92 members 
of the House of Commons. Its local government is carried on by a singly 
chamber having 98 members. Capital, Toronto.

PROVINCE OF QUEBEC. 

The Province of Quebec, the cradle of civilization in Canada, has a 
history more aboundingf in romance and episode than that of any other 
division of the American continent. Its discovery dates from 1534, and its 
regular colonization from the begfinning of the 17th century. F"rom this 
colony went forth the hardy French pioneers, who penetrated throug'h the 
wilds surrounding the Great Lakes, into "the plains and prairies of the 
unknown West and North-West, and down the valley of the Mississippi to 
the Gulf of Mexico, and whose names still survive in many a town, lake 
and river, of Western Canada and the United States. The scenery of 
Quebec, along- the St. Lawrence and Saguenay to Lake St. John and the 
regions beyond is unsurpassed in grandeur, and is year by year attracting 
visitors from all parts of the continent and from Europe. The wealth of 
Quebec in minerals is proving to be very great, the asbestos mines, among 
others, being now acknowledged to be the richest in the world. Quebec is 
penetrated in every part by rivers and streams, and the amount of water 
power still unutilized is inconceivable to those who have not explored the 
province. The facilities thus afforded for mill operations point out the 
province as a great future seat of manufacturing, especially in paper and 
pulp making, these water powers being interspersed among vast tracts of 
spruce, poplar, hemlock and other pulp woods, unequalled in the world for 
their qualities for pulp and paper making. By an Order in Council passed 
in 1896 the northern boundaries have been extended to the shores of 
Hudson Ba\', the land area of Quebec being now 344,050 sq. miles, and 
the water area 3,300 sq. miles. The population at the last census in 1901, 
was 1,648,898, and is now estimated at 1,650,000. It has 65 counties, five 
districts, eight cities, loi towns, and over 1,500 villages. A dual system 
of education exists in the province, there being Roman Catholic school 
boards and Protestant school boards. The Roman Catholic boards have 
under their charge 4,455 elementary schools, 511 model schools, 149 
academies, two normal schools, 16 classical colleges and two universities, 
these institutions having 295,284 pupils of all grades. Under the Protestant 
school boards, there are 884 elementary schools, 44 model schools, 29 
academies, one normal school, three classical colleges and two universities, 
these schools, etc., having 36,932 pupils of all grades. Besides these, 
there are seven non-sectarian schools of arts and manufactures, five schools 
of agriculture and dairying and other miscellaneous institutions of learning. 
Quebec sends to the Dominion parliament 65 members, and is represented 
there by 24 senators, the .same number as for Ontario. Its provincial 
legislature has two Houses, the Upper House, or legislative council,

Montreal first began to be settled by Europeans in 1542 ; and ex- 
actly one century later the spot destined to be the city was consecrat- 
ed with due solemnities, commended to the " Queen of Angels, " and 
called Ville-Marie, a name which it retained for a long period. In 
1760 it was taken by the English. Early in the last century 
vessels of more than three hundred tons could not ascend to Mont- 
real, and its foreign trade was carried on by small brigs and barges. 
In 1809 the first steam vessel, " The Accommodation, " built by the 
Hon. John Molson, made a trip to Quebec. She had berths for 
twenty passengers. Years of industry and intelligence, enterprise 
and labor have produced a mighty contrast. Ocean steamers of 
4,000 to 10,000 tons and ships from 700 to 2,000, from all parts of the 
world, now lie alongside of the wharves in the harbor, which are 
not equalled in Canada in point of extent, accommodation, approach 
and cleanliness. Montreal was formerly the capital of Canada, but 
in April, 1849, a political mob burned the Parliament Buildings and 
the seat of government was in consequence removed to Quebec, sub- 
sequently to Toronto and finally to Ottawa. In July, 1852, a destruc- 
tive fire laid waste a large part of the city, burning 1,108 houses and 
destroying property valued at $1,363,264. Montreal is noted for its 
charitable and religious, institutions, some of which were founded 
nearly 250 years ago. The oldest church in the city is the Bonse- 
cours (Roman Catholic), it was erected in 1658 ; was burnt in 1764, 
but rebuilt in 1771. The city is abundantly supplied with pure 
water, and is lighted by electricity and gas. The principal buildings 
are the City Hall, Court House, Post Office, Custom House, Board 
of Trade, Seminary of St. Sulpice, Convent of Notre Dame, General 
Hospital, Royal Victoria Hospital, Grey Nunnery, Montreal College, 
McGill University Buildings, Laval University, Presbyterian Me- 
thodist and Congregational Colleges, Young Men's Christian Associa-

tion on the St. Lawrence, and its shipping trade is the largest of any 
city in Canada, the annual exports amounting to about $30,000,000 
and the imports about $45,000,000. It is the head port of eight 
steamship companies, one of which (the Allan line) is among the 
largest in the world. Over 6,000 vessels arrive annually during the 
season of navigation. Its granite docks extend seven or eight miles 
up and down the river. Vast improvements are now in progress 
and when completed the harbor will be one of the finest in 
North America. Montreal has about two-thirds of the bank- 
ing capital of Canada, no less than eight of its chartered banks 
having their head offices here. The Victoria Bridge across the River 
St. Lawrence at Montreal, was the largest tubular bridge in the 
world, being 9,184 feet in length. It contains 24 spans of 242 feet 
each and one (the centre 60 feet above the river) of 330 feet, and it 
cost nearly $7,000,000. This bridge has now been replaced by a double 
track steel bridge laid on the old piers. The educational means of the 
city comprise the universities of McGill and Laval with faculties of 
law, arts, science, medicine, and veterinary science, and theological 
colleges connected with the Methodist, Congregational, Presb3te- 
rian. Church of England, and Roman Catholic churches ; a high 
school, two normal schools, and a number of private and public

hospitality and kindness of its citizens, Quebec stands supreme 
among the cities of America. The city has a remarkably pictu- 
resque situation between the two rivers at the north-eastern ex- 
tremity of a narrow but elevated tableland, which for about eight 
miles forms the left bank of the River St. Lawrence. Cape Diamond, 
the extremity of the tableland, is ;i33 feet above the level of the river, 
to which it presents a nearly precipitous face ; the descent to the St. 
Charles River is more gradual. The distance from one river to the 
other is little more than a mile. Opposite Cape Diamond the St. 
Lawrence is contracted to a breadth of 1,314 yards ; but immediately 
below, at the confluence of the St. Charles, it spreads out into a 
broad and beautiful basin, more than 2,500 yards wide, forming a 
capacious and excellent harbor. The Spring tides rise and fall 18 
feet. Quebec is divided into two parts called Upper and Lower 
Towns. The Upper Town occupies the highest part of the pro- 
montory, a small part of it is surrounded with walls, and otherwise 
fortified. The ancient citadel, which crowns the summit of Cape 
Diamond, covers, with its numerous works, an area of 40 acres, and 
from its position is the strongest natural fortress in America. The 
Lower Town, which is the seat of commerce, is built around the base 
of Cape Diamond, where, in many places, the rock has been cut 
away to make room for the houses. The banks of both rivers are 
lined with warehouses and wharves, the latter jutting about 200 feet 
into the stream, and along them the water is sufficiently deep to 
admit vessels of the largest size. The city has several times suffered 
from disastrous fires, but the result has been the erection of more 
attractive buildings and a consequent improvement in the general 
appearance of the city. In the Upper Town are several squares 
and public walks commanding views unrivalled for their varied and 
picturesque appearance. In one stands a substantial monument, 
erected to the joint memory of Generals Wolfe and Montcalm, the 
English and F"rench commanders who fell in the taking of Quebec in 
1759. It is 65 feet high. A monument 40 feet high marks the spot 
where General Wolfe fell on the Plains of Abraham ; while on St. 
Foy Road stands a monument presented by Prince Napoleon Bona- 
parte in 1855, commemorating a fierce struggle which took place 
here in 1760 bet%veen the British and French troops. Among the 
public buildings of Quebec may be mentioned the new Parliament 
Buildings ; the Roman Catholic Cathedral, with a seating capacity 
of 4,000 persons, and covering with the university attached an area 
of eight acres ; the English Cathedral, surmounted by a lofty spire, 
both occupying elevated positions in the Upper Town. There are 
twenty-three churches in Quebec and one synagogue. The educat- 
ional institutions comprise three Roman Catholic Colleges, viz : 
Laval University, with faculties of arts,' law and medicine ; the 
Grand Seminary and the Minor Seminary ; the Ursuline Convent, an 
extensive establishment founded in 1641 ; several nunneries ; Morrin 
College, with seven professors ; Laval, Normal and Model schools ; 
Girls' High school ; the Quebec High school, and a number of private 
academies and public schools. There are in addition, a Canadian 
Institute, provided with a library and reading room ; the Literary 
and Historical Society, the oldest chartered institution of its kind in 
Canada, having been founded in 1824,^ and possessing valuable 
" Records of the Realm " in eighty or ninety folios, and a large 
collection of historical manuscripts ; but nearly the whole of its 
museum and a great part of its library were destroyed by fire, with 
the Parliament buildings, in 1854 ; the Entomological Society, St. 
Patrick's Literary Institute, Advocates' Library, Board of Trade, 
Merchants' Exchange and the Y.M.C.A. rooms. The principal 
benevolent institutions are the Marine Hospital, the Hotel Dieu, the 
(JefFery Hale) General Hospital, and the Lunatic Asylum a^'Beau-

JUDICIOUS HINTS. 

The way to win is to begin. 

Common sense is uncommonly good advertising. 

When the rest are straining to outshout each other — just 
try a little quiet explaining on your own account. 

However important your ad may appear to yo7i, remem- 
ber it's onl}^ one in ten thousand to the cursory 7'eader. Don't 
create resistance. 

Let us not worry about being over-shadowed. If we, 
ourselves, are big enough, the other fellow's bigness will only 
make him companionable. 

The world will be slow in making a ' ' beaten path ' ' to 
the door of the unknown one if his competitors are shrewd 
enough to open up the broad highway of advertising. 

To convmce, the true advertisement writer puts his whole 
soul into his copy. It may not read with a ring or abound 
with grammatical grace or rhetorical flourish, but it will shine 
with the real heartsome earnestness of enthicsiasvt and trtith, 
and it will prevail over doubt and indifference. — Judicious 
Advertising.

PROVINCE OF NEW BRUNSWICK 



New Brunswick, the largest of the three maritime provinces, has a 
land area of 27,911 square miles, and an internal water area of 74 square 
miles. The population at the census of 190J was 331,120, and the esti- 
mated population at the present time is about 350,000. The province is 
endowed with a r^Mnarkable wealth of timber lands and an extent of rich 
farming' land also far larger than is generally supposed. These lands will 
be opened up for cultivation as the forests are cleared, when New Bruns- 
wick will be recognized not only as a great agricultural and stock raising 
country, but as Nova Scotia is now, will be rich in fruit and garden pro- 
ducts. The pulp industry is beginning to be developed, the province 
having a large area of fine pulp wood. The province is intersected in a 
remarkable wav by beautiful rivers, nearly all of which are stocked with 
fish. Some of the salmon rivers of New Brunswick are the most celebrated 
in the world. The River St. John — noted among other New Brunswick 
rivers for its picturesque scenery- — is 500 miles long, is navigable for large 
steamers to Fredericton, 90 miles, and for small steamers to Grand Falls, 
230 miles. Other noble rivers of the province are the Miramichi, the 
Nipisegiiit, the Richibucto and the St. Croix. Coal, gold, galena, man- 
ganese, antimony, coal oil and other mineral deposits exist in the province, 
together with a remarkable mineral called albertite — a jet-black, glossy 
substance — the true character of which was a matter of dispute amoug 
geologists, though it is now regarded as pure petroleum, and is of great 
commercial value. To give an idea of the extent of the lumber industry of 
the province, the mills of the St. John River alone produce over 160,000,000 ft. 
annually, not including laths, pickets, shingles, staves, etc., and the exports 
for 1903 amounted to over $6,000,000. The fisheries of the province 
are extensive, employing over 11,000 men and over 5,50a vessels and 
fishing boats. The total value of fish caught by these fishermen in 1901 
was $4, 193,264 the exports being over $1,000,000. The total tonnage of 
vessels engaged in the coasting trade of New Brunswick in 1903 was 
1,301,667 tons. The canning of lobsters and sardines is now a special 
feature of this industry. New Brunswick has three cities, five towns and 
750 villages and hamlets. It has three universities and a number of 
academies, normal and high schools. There were 1,778 public schools in 
the province in 1903, with 1,858 teachers and assistants and 65,927 pupils. 
The grammar schools have 37 teachers and 1,084 pupils, and the normal 
schools 242 pupils. In the Dominion Parliament New Brunswick is repre- 
sented by 10 senators and 13 members of the House of Commons. Its 
provincial legislature has now a single house, the Legislative Assembly, 
consisting of 46 members. Capital, Fredericton.

PROVINCE OF NOVA SCOTIA. 



The Province of Nova Scotia — called in its early days Acadia, and 
embracing under that term the territory of the present Province of New 
Brunswick — is bounded on the north and west by the Gulf of St. 
Lawrence, Straits of Northumberland and Bay of Fundy, and on the east 
and south by the Atlantic Ocean, Only a narrow neck of land separates 
the waters of the Bay of Fundy from the Straits of Northumberland. 
Standing out in the Atlantic, and commanding, in a commercial sense, the 
Gulf of St. Law rence, the province is destined to be the great maritime 
force of the American continent. Each and every county in the whole 
province reaches the sea, and possesses one or more harbours ; and the 
position of the province in this respect is unique in the geography of the 
world. The land area of Nova Scotia is 20,550 square miles, the internal 
water area 50 square miles, and the population in 1901 was 459,574. It has 
18 counties, three cities, 25 incorporated towns and about 850 villages. The 
future maritime pre-eminence of Nova Scotia is not only indicated by its 
position on the sea, and by the natural tendencies of the population, but by 
the immense beds of excellent coal and iron found side by side in the 
same counties, and eminently suited for ship building purposes. The output 
of Nova Scotia coal increased from 1,373,666 long tons in 1886 to over 
5,000,000 in 1903, and valued at $10,000,000 at the mines. The output of 
1903 was 900,000 tons more than that of 1902, and the demand for it in 
Quebec and other provinces is steadily increasing. The coal mines gives 
employment to 10,000 men. During 1903 the quantity of gold mined in the 
province amounted to 30,537 oz., worth $610,740. The product of the 
iron mines is also large ; while the province is rich in gypsum, copper, 
and other minerals as yet but partially developed. The value of the 
fisheries averages $8,000,000, and the annual value of farm produce is 
estimated at $16,000,000. Among other products of the field. Nova Scotia 
has of late years become famous for her apples, which are in great de- 
mand in England for their exceptionally fine flavour. In the last few years 
the production of apples has ranged from 400,000 barrels to 600,000 barrels ; 
the value of the exports to England in 1903 netted the growers $1,000,000, 
and new areas are each year being planted. The foreign imports for 
1903 were $13,481,917, and the exports $17,016,554. In 1903 Nova Scotia 
had 2,417 schools with 100, 129 pupils. The province has five universities, 
a provincial normal school, an academy for the deaf, dumb and blind — the 
first in anj' British colony — a school of horticulture, and i8 county aca- 
demies besides high schools. Nova Scotia sends to the House of Com- 
mons 19 members, and to the Upper House 10 senators ; its local legis- 
lature has 38 members in the Assembly and 21 in the Legislative CouncH. 
Capital, Halifax.

PE^RSISTBNCE PAY*. 

Many business men insert a small advertisement once or 
twice in a publication "as a trial," and then sit back and 
wait to see what comes of it. Quite naturally, nothing — or 
next to nothing — comes of it. 

People who see your advertisement once or twice are just 
beginning to take note of what you say, and, perhaps, to 
resolve to give your goods a trial. The next time they look 
over the advertisements in their favorite paper, you aren't 
there. 

Consequently, the man who advertises steadily and per- 
sistently wins their confidence and gets their trade. It is 
quite just and proper that he should. Nobody is going to 
take the trouble to hunt up a man who shyly bobs up to the 
surface now and then, and then bobs down again.

PROVINCE of PRINCE EDWARD ISLAND. 



Though the smallest in area — having a land surface of only 2,000 square 
miles — Prince Edward Island is the most thickly settled and one of the most 
productive of the provinces of Canada. It had at the last census of 1901 
51.5 persons to the square mile, while Nova Scotia, the next province in 
density of population, had at the same census only 21.8 per square mile. 
The population of the island at the census of 1901 was 103,258, the esti- 
mated population at the pre.sent time being about 104,000. There is 
scarcely a foot of land in Prince Edward Island not capable of cultivation 
and the soil is uniformly rich. This natural advantage, coupled with the 
endowment of a temperate climate and regular rainfalls, has made the 
province famous as an agricultural and stock raising country. The Island 
horses, cattle and sheep are eagerly sought after both by Canadian and 
United States buyers. But it is in dairying and in the meat business that 
Prince Edward Island is making the most gigantic strides. It is now 
sometimes referred to as "The Denmark of Canada." In 1903 there were 
41 dairy stations in operation, manufacturing 2,729,556 lbs. of cheese and 
556,452 lbs. of butter, the total value of both being $386,168. Among 
other agricultural products, the Island oats and potatoes are famous 
throughout America and the West Indies for their excellence, the foreign 
demand for these products being steadily on the increase. The hay crops 
are also celebrated, being produced from indigenous clover and grasses, 
and it is to the high quality of these crops that the superiority of the Island 
live stock is largely due. The fishing interests of the Island are also 
important, its position in the Gulf giving it great advantages for the future 
development of its marine resources. The value of the fish taken by 
Prince Edward Island fishermen in 1903 was $887,024, of which $581,000 
was exported to foreign countries . The total tonnage of vessels engaged 
in the coasting trade of the Island in 1903 was 1,091,012. The principal 
fish caught are mackerel, herring, cod, hake, lobsters and oysters. The 
annual take of lobsters is about 2,422,144 pound cans, and of oysters about 
20,000 barrels, the Prince Edward Island oysters — especially those of 
Malpeque Bay — being esteemed the finest in flavour of any on the Atlantic 
coast. The park like scenery of the Island, and its even temperature and 
charming summer weather, together with an abundance of the finest sea 
trout and good shooting in season, are year by year attracting tourists 
and health seekers to the province from all parts of the continent. Prince 
Edward Island in 1903 had 473 public schools, with 274 male teachers and 
298 female teachers, and a total of 19,956 pupils. In the same year it had 
419 post offices through which passed 2,240,000 letters, 160,000 post cards, 
56,000 registered letters, 51,000 free letters, '^00, 000 transient newspapers, 
circulars, etc., 15,500 parcels, and 13,040 money orders, besides papers 
from offices of publication. Prince Edward Island is represented in the 
Dominion Parliament by four senators and four members of the House of 
Commons. Its local government is carried on by a single house, the 
Legislative Assembly, having 30 members. Capital, Charlottetown.

DON'T HURRY. 

The very best way to insure poor cuts, poor copy, poor 
position, poor selection of papers and poor advertising gen- 
erally, is to hurry. Plenty of time should be allowed the 
agent to carefully consider all necessary particulars in order 
to achieve the best results.

PROVINCE OF MANITOBA. 



Manitoba, popularly known as the prairie province, has a land area of 
64,327 square miles, and a water area of 9,405 square miles. It is 
celebrated for its rich agricultural land, and is especially noted as a g-rain 
raising- province. Twenty-five years ago almost the only products of the 
province were furs, but its prairie lands, over which the buffalo roamed but 
a few years ago, are being- rapidly settled by emig-rants from the older 
provinces and from Europe. When Manitoba became a province of the 
Dominion in 1870, the total population was only 11,963, of whom 10,400 
were half breeds and Indians. The census of 190 1 showed a population of 
255,211, and the present population is estimated at well over 400,000. In 
1882 the province had 65 miles of railways, in 1904 this mileag-e has been 
increased to 2,606. The total acreag-e devoted to cereals in 1904, was 
3,507,593, being- an increase of about 10 p.c. over the year 1903. Although 
wheat farming is still the main industry, diversified agriculture is increasing 
year by year, and many farmers are going in for herds of Shorthorns, 
Herefords, Holsteins, Galloways and Ayrshires, and many fine Clyde 
horses are also being bred. Lake Winnipeg produces the finest whitefish 
known on the American continent, and many tons of this fish are shipped 
annually to Chicago, New York and other American cities. Large freezers 
have been erected at West Selkirk, a short distance from the mouth of the 
Red River where it empties into Lake Winnipeg, and here the fish is held 
for shipment. A large fleet of steam tugs are constantly employed in this 
trade. On Lake Manitoba there are large deposits of the very finest 
gypsum, and by next May the plant of the Manitoba Gypsum Company will 
be enlarged to turn out 30,000 barrels of cement annually. Two steamers 
are employed on the lake in this trade. Other mineral resources of the 
province that have not yet been developed are large deposits of salt and 
petroleum, which are known to exist near Lake Winnipegosis, and ricfi 
beds of iron ore, underlying the country around Lake Winnipeg. The 
number of public schools within the confines of the province is 1,488, and 
the number of teachers employed therein 1,869, while nearly 60,000 pupils 
are in attendance. Manitoba is represented in the Dominion House of 
Commons by ten members, and in the Senate by four senators. The 
local government is carried on by a single Legislative Assembly, having 
forty members. Capital Winnipeg. 

/•'or information regarding the newspapers of the province see other 
parts of this work. 

The Dominion electoral constituencies are given as counties, they 
taking the same flace as the counties in the older provinces.

$246,108,006, for the nine months ending September, 1904, they 
were $193,723,674. The city contains 58 churches, 19 public 
schools, with a registered attendance of 10,500, 6 colleges, a univer- 
sity, academies, ladies' schools, the Provincial Government build- 
ings, court house, gaols, chief oflRees of the Dominion Government 
in the west, city hall, markets, 7 fire stations and police stations, 
water works, electric street and house lighting, gas, electric street- 
railway, Industrial Exhibition building costing $160,000. Seven 
bridges, permanent and volunteer military force. The history of 
Winnipeg, with its wonderful growth and progress, reads like a 
chapter from some romance. Buildings erected in 1900 estimated 
cost $1,441,863; in 1901, $1,708,557; 1902, $2,408,125; 1903, 
$5,689,400 ; and 9 months of 1904, $7,833,750. Thirty-two years 
ago Winnipeg's population was less than 1,000, and the school 
attendance was only 35, it was but a post of the Hudson Bay Co., 
without churches, streets, or railroads, and but a few years pre- 
viously the Indian chased bands of buffalo across the prairie where 
Winnipeg now stands. It is now the railroad and business centre of 
the Canadian Northwest. It is in the famous Red River Valley, and 
surrounded by good farming, timber, and mining districts with 
extensive lake fisheries. The streets of the city are generally wide, 
the principal avenues being 132 ft., and many are paved with 
asphalt, block and macadam. The sidewalks are concrete, tile and 
plank. The city is spreading rapidly over a wide territory, with its 
wide streets and its detached houses. Not less than 10,000 acres 
has been covered by its 75 miles of sewers, 70 miles of paved 
streets, 60 miles of which are boulevarded, 210 miles of sidewalks, 
and approximately 100 miles of water mains have been laid down 
since the city's incorporation about 25 years ago ; 5,800 houses have 
sewer and 7,000 have water connections. In 1890 the rateable 
assessment of the city was $18,612,410, and in 1904 it is $48,220,450. 
These facts give some idea of the rapid progress being made. The 
grain business of the Canadian West centres in Winnipeg, and for 
the last three years the average amount of wheat exports has 
exceeded 50,000,000 bushels per year. This is evidence enough of 
the nature of the soil tributary to Winnipeg. In addition to agricul- 
ture a considerable fishing business is done in the large Northern 
lakes, and timber and mining enterprises abound on their shores. 
Winnipeg city owns and operates its own asphalt paving plant, its 
own quarry, public lighting, water works, and fire alarm plants.

There is no reason why the firm, with faith in their own 
merchandise, should not invest a reasonable sum in advertising. 
It is no longer a question of ' ' does it pay to advertise, ' ' but 
* ' does it pay not to advertise. ' ' With indisputable successes 
to guide, and failures to guard, advertising is now reduced to 
a science. There are Osiers in advertising, just as there is an 
Osier in medicine. And they have attained their high position 
by a lifetime of study. The expert advertising man lays out 
a campaign of advertising with the years of facts to guide 
him, just as the eminent physician diagnoses the various cases 
of disease. 

With an almost inappreciable exception, advertising 
failures rest with those who have endeavored to encompass 
the subject with their limited knowledge of the ways and 
means of properly appealing to the great buying public. 

It has not been a great many years since advertising was 
looked upon as a mere question of "smartness." The 
average advertiser inserted some "bright, catchy" effusion 
and expected to become a millionnaire over night. No thought 
was given to the quantity and quality of the paper's circula- 
tion, location, population, law of supply and demand, and 
other vital statistics.

NORTH=WEST TERRITORIES. 



The four org-anized territories erf the Canadian North- West have an 
area of over 500,000 square miles, divided as follows : Assiniboia, land 
area 88,279 square miles, water area 600 square miles ; Saskatchewan, 
land area 103,846 square miles, water area 3,772 square miles ; Alberta, 
101,521 square miles, water area 362 square miles ; the Yukon, 196,327 
square miles, water area 649 square miles. This is exclusive of the 
Mackenzie Basin, Ungava, Franklin and Keewatin, territories of large 
extent, but almost unexplored and undeveloped. It was only in 1886 that 
the little known region lying between Manitoba and B.C. was marked off 
into districts with a provisional government, but it is only the matter of a 
short time when these districts will become a province or provinces of the 
Dominion. The Act creating these districts gave the Dominion govern- 
ment the essential attributes of sovereignty, not only over these territories, 
but over the entire domain of British North America, so large a part of 
which is still waiting exploration and settlement. A census of Assiniboia, 
Alberta and Saskatchewan, taken in 1885, gave the total population of 
these districts as 48,362, of whom 20,170 were Indians, the district of 
Athabasca being almost wholly inhabited by Indians. The census of 1891 
showed the population of the territories to be 98,967, while the census of 
1901, gives the population at 158,940, and if the present influx of settlers 
is continued as the country is opened up an estimate that the population 
will be over 750,000 at the next census is not an exaggera,tion. \\'ithin 
the last few years these territories have become celebrated for their won- 
derful productiveness in grain and stock-raising, the winter climate having 
proved much milder than those accustomed to corresponding latitudes in 
the East would imagine, owing to the influence of the Chinook winds and 
other causes. The mineral wealth of the territories in coal,' gold, natural 
asphaltum, petroleum, etc., has already been proved to be immense, and 
it only requires railway communication to open up these vast resources. 
In 1885 there were 59 organized school districts in the territories, but in 
1902 they possessed 640 public schools and 15 separate schools, having 783 
teachers in all. The total number of pupils was 27,441. The postal 
statistics of the territories are included in the official returns for Manitoba. 
The North-West Territories return two senators to the Dominion House 
and four members to the House of Commons. . For all the territories 
together, except the Yukon, there is a Legislative Assembly, consisting' of 
31 members, which with an Advisory Council forms the local govern- 
ment. The Yukon district, the great mineral wealth of which has become 
the sensation of the world, is administered by a special commissioner and 
staff, appointed by the Dominion Government. The capital of the North- 
West Territories is Regina, and of the Yukon district, Dawson City.

BRITISH COLUMBIA. 



British Columbia, the largest of all the provinces of the Canadian 
Confederation, has a land area of 370,191 sq. miles, and a water area ot 
2,439 sq.m., being- more than the combined areas of France, Italy, Belgium 
and Holland. All the great natural features of the other provinces are 
here reproduced on a magnified scale, the great prairies of the North- West 
alone excepted. It has a greater variety of climate than all the other pro- 
vinces, for while the upper slopes of the Rockies are as cold as Labrador, 
the southern coast is so warm that oranges have been ripened in the open 
air. Taken as an average the climate is mild and equable and resembles 
that of many parts of England. Its many splendid valleys and level 
plateaus are exceedingly fertile. Agriculture is growing rapidly with the 
spread of mining, both south and north. In 1901, more than 50 per cent of 
the land was under cultivation, the average size of farms being 252 acres. 
In fisheries, its vast salmon industries make it a close second to Nova 
Scotia, the value of British Columbia catch in 1901 being $7,942,771 ; this 
is a fair annual average, and in addition nearly $500,000 worth of sealskins 
are taken annually in the open season. From 9 to 10 million salmon are 
canned here each year. Its wonderful coast line of thousands of miles, 
embracing hundreds of harbors ; its unrivalled fisheries ; its stupendous 
forests, many trees of which measure from 8 to 10 feet in diameter ; its 
incalculable wealth in those minerals which are the most valued by, and 
most necessary to, man, and its peculiar geographical position on the Pa- 
cific Coast, all mark out the province as one of the imperial realms of the 
future. The wealth of British Columbia in minerals can as yet scarcely be 
calculated, for tracts of country thousands of sq. miles in extent, are as yet 
untraversed by the prospector, and many regions known to be rich in 
minerals can not yet be reached by railways. Among the minerals mined 
or exported to a greater or less extent are gold, silver, coal, iron, copper> 
galena, mercury, cinnibar, platinum, antimony, bismuth, molybdenum, 
plumbago, salt and mica, while many other minerals are known to exist. 
The coal of the province ranges from common lignite to anthracite, and 
most of it is admirably suited for steam purposes. The steam shipping 
trade ot the whole American coast of the Pacific is now looking to -British 
Columbia for its coal supplies. Within the past year the vast coal beds of 
the Crow's Nest Pass have been tapped and have been proved to be 
excellent steam coal. For the 12 years preceding 1874, the exports of 
coal from British Columbia averaged 12,500 tons per year, but the)- have 
developed since then till in 1897 the exports were 679,751 tons, the total 
production of the same year being 988,796 tons. The coal bearing areas so 
far explored are 65,000 sq. m. in extent, the quantity underlying portions of 
this area being estimated at four and a half to nine million tons per sq. m. 
Gold is found in greater or less quantity all over the province, but the 
mines of the Kootenay and Cariboo districts are becoming prominent as 
quartz mining regions, while the Cassiar, Atlin Lake and other regions 
have developed rich placer mines. The gold produced in British Columbia 
since the development of quartz mining, has increased at such rapid rate 
that the amount, $2,724,657.00 produced in 1897, will probably be doubled 
in 1904. In exports the province stood third in 1902 with a total of 
$18,385,335. The population of British Columbia in 1891 was 92,767, 
at the census of 1901 it was 178,657, and at the present time it is estimated 
at about 190,000. In 1902 there were 337 schools, with 570 teachers and 
23,903 pupils. The annual expenditure for education has increased from 
$171,311 in 1891 to $438,086 in 1902. The province is represented in the 
Dominion Parliament by three senators, and six members of the House 
of Commons. The local government is carried on by a single chamber, 
the Legislative Assembly, having 33 members. Capital, Victoria.

TKe Object of Advertising 

The object of all advertising is to put the advertiser into 
a position to transact business with a portion of the great 
buying public. No amount of attractiveness or favorable 
comment will save the ad from being an utter failure if it fails 
to bring — directly or indirectly — business. 

An ad brings business to the advertiser by creating in the 
mind of the reader an impression favorable to the advertiser 
and his goods. Just how that favorable impression may best 
be created — just what means to employ — just what to avoid — 
how much to say and how much to leave unsaid — these are 
the things which constitute the art and science of advertising. 

The advertiser who keeps his eyes open can find inspir- 
ation, ideas, suggestions, in the footprints of other advertisers; 
especially may he see pitfalls which he must avoid ; but look 
he ever so diligently, among even the very elect of successful 
advertisers, he will never find a perfect pathway blazed for 
him. For the problems of adverti.sing are as diverse as are the 
men who advertise or the businesses they attempt to promote. 
There is no ready-made-to -order system. The advertiser can- 
not buy, beg or borrow the system of another man. He must 
have a system to fit. 

If he is wise, when his business needs a doctor he will go 
to a business physician .skilled in diagnosis, who will write a 
prescription to meet the special requirements of the special 
case, and not recommend some patent nostrum, a business 
cure-all. 

All advertising does not pay. All good advertising does. 
That's what good advertising is ; advertising that brings 
results. 

The truth is that nine-tenths of the failures in advertising 
are not advertising failures at all, but failures in the bu.siness 
methods l)ehind the advertising — Agriailtural Advertising.

YUKON XERRITORY. 



Yukon Territory, Canada. — Population, 25,000. Industries, mining. 
The territory produces annually $20,000,000 in gold from its placer mines. 
Everything- needed by the entire population must be imported. Wages^ 
and prices are high, and margins of profit correspondingly high . The better 
class of manufactured articles is mostly imported. Dawson is the capital 
of the territory, and has a population of 5,000. It is the supply centre 
of all Yukon and the lower river gold fields in Alaska. Has $1,000,000 
worth of government buildings, churches and schools, well graded streets, 
a fire department that cost $100,000 per year to maintain, and is the most 
important city north of Vancouver. Quartz mining is fast coming to the 
front in Yukon. Last year the Government gave $15,000 in bonuses to 
quartz development, with the result that some good prospects will turn 
into good mines. Fifty thousand tons of goods are shipped into Yukon 
annually, all this amount being shipped in practically four months' time 
(the open season). Every ton of these goods could be sold by Canadian 
manufacturers had they the enterprise to advertise for and go after this- 
trade. 

DAWoON CITY, pop. 5,000. The metropolis and seat of govern- 
ment of the Klondike gold fields on Yukon River. Two banks, 
government telegraph line, T., Ex., M.O. According to its popu-

NEWFOUNDLAND. 

Newfoundland, the oldest colony in the British Empire, embraces the 
Island of Newfoundland and a portion of the Labrador coast of the main- 
land, and is the only part of British North America not as yet included in 
the Dominion of Canada, thoug'h proposals for confederation have at various 
times been made, and althoug'h the question is a live one, many of the 
leading men of the island are opposed to a union with Canada. The area 
of the island is estimated at 40,200 sq. m., and the Labrador coast at 
120,000 sq. m. The population at the census of 1891 was 202,040, including- 
Labrador. From its settlement in 16 14 to a very recent time the fisheries 
have formed practically the only industry of the inhabitants, but the build- 
ing of railways, and the exploration of the interior, is leading to the 
discovery and development of hitherto unknown resources that will give a 
steadiness and balance heretofore lacking in the commerce of the island. 
In minerals the island has copper, coal, iron, gypsum, sulphur, graphite, 
lead, asbestos and gold. Iron and copper are the principal minerals. 
Copper was discovered at Felt Cone in 1856, but the mines were not 
operated until 1864. Since then several large deposits have been 
uncovered, and to-day Newfoundland stands sixth in the copper producing 
countries of the world. In 1895 brown hematite iron was discovered at 
Bell Island, Conception Bay. It is estimated that in the two deposits on 
the island there are 40,000,000 tons. The output of these mines and the 
shipments of iron pyrites are materially adding to the exports of the 
colony. Talc deposits have also been uncovered at Topsail, some 14 miles 
from St. John's, and shipments were made in 1904 to the United States. 
Besides the above, slate quarries were opened in 1904, and shipments sent 
to Wales. The value of minerals exported in 1902 was $1,260,381, and 
since then the output has been much larger. Within a couple of years vast 
timber limits have been operated, modern saw mills constructed, and 
numerous shipments made to the United Kingdom and South America. The 
lumber trade bids fair to become extensive. The value of the exports of 
lumber in 1904 is placed at $375,000. The pulp industry is also assuming 
large proportions under the management of British capitalists. More 
attention is being paid to agriculture. The number of acres under cultiva- 
tion has increased within a few years from about 100,000 acres to close on 
200,000 acres. The annual value of agricultural products is over $750,000, 
and the value of land under cultivation, together with horses, sheep, etc., 
is nearly $3,000,000. A movement is on foot to utilize the vast plains in 
the interior raising sheep and cattle for export to the United Kingdom. Fish 
is the chief product of Newfoundland, and out of a total value ot $8,547,369 
exports in 1902, $7,287,369 were offish and fish products. The total value 
of the fisheries in 1902 was $7,356,681. The herring fisheries are com- 
manding the attention of the Government. Expert herring packers were 
brought from Scotland, with the result that shipments of herring were sent 
to St. Petersburg, Russia, and sold at good prices. The whale fisheries 
are also becoming more extensive. The value in 1904 was $365,953. The 
settlement of the French shore question will be the means of adding 
greatly to the development not alone in connection with the fisheries, but 
other resources of the treaty shore. Plans are now being made for settle- 
ments there. The lobster fisheries alone in 1904 were valued at $80,000. 
The imports of Newfoundland in 1903-4 were $9,460,000, and the exports 
$10,380,000. In 1895 there were 2,339 vessels on the shipping register of 
the colony, with a total tonnage of 108,180 tons, and of the whole popula- 
tion no less than 53,502 persons were engaged in fishing. For the year 
1904 the Government's grant for educational purposes was $4,000 over the 
previous year. The total attendance at the colleges, academies and 
schools in 1896 was 34,557. There are 846 post offices in the colony, 
but statistics of this department are not available. The government is 
carried on by a Legislative Council, consisting of 15 members, and a 
Legislative Assembly of 36 members. Capital, St. Jolm's.

The Pari^iament Buildings, Ottawa, 

OTTAWA . 



Of ancient By Town, as 'twas then, 
How few, alas! are living- still 
Who saw the Sappers, 
Marching' in splendid order past, 
Their bugles ringing on the blast, 
Their bayonets glittering- in the sun, 
A man who knew not how to flinch, 
A British soldier every inch — 
Courteous alike to low and high — 
A gentleman was Colonel By. 

True it is that to Colonel By and his Sappers, rather than to the early 
pioneers, does the city of Ottawa owe its inception. And it is to the 
exigencies of war, rather than the natural development of peace, that the 
initiation of the Rideau Canal is due, longf before the bugle signaled or the 
bayonet glittered on the ramparts of old Ottawa, it was prophesied that 
the nascent city would one day be the national capital. It is obvious that 
the site of Ottawa is one that seems almost to have been specifically 
planned by nature for the capital. It is central, on a magnificent waterway, 
and is the key to the great commercial route^to the Northwest. 

In 1858, Queen Victoria formally named Ottawa as the seat of 
Government. The foundation stone of the Parliament buildings was laid 
September ist, i860, by His Royal Highness, the Prince of Wales, now 
King Edward VII, who was then paying his memorable visit to the new 
world. This stone bears the follov/ing inscription " This Corner Stone, 
intended to receive the Legislature of Canada, was laid by Albert 5<iward, 
Prince of Wales, on the first of September MDCCCLX."

From this date, the city commenced that phenomenal development 
which is now the wonder and admiration of the British Empire. In the 
year 1867, the civic assessment amounted to over $5,000,000. In 1898, the 
assessment was $23,713,725. The population has grown with even more 
rapid strides. From 18,700 in 1867, it rose to 53,386 in 1898, and in 1904 
it reached the higfh water mark of more than 75,000. The population of 
the section within three miles of Ottawa is considerably more than 100,000. 
Ottawa is the third city in size in Canada, its population at the last 
census being only exceeded by Toronto and Montreal. The percentage of 
g-rowth was larger than any other city, with the exception of Winnipeg. 

Ottawa's present day fame is largely derived from the fact that it is 
the capital of the Dominion. This has helped largely to retain its political 
importance, increase its wealth and population. Here for the best part of 
every year, live the political leaders of Canada. The public men from 
every town and province, make Ottawa their temporary home. As is well 
known, the Governor-General, the personal representative of King 
Edward, has his official residence at Rideau Hall. The Parliament 
Buildings, the library of Parliament, the churches, hotels, theatres and 
private homes are among the handsomest in Canada. 

Ottawa ranks equally high educationally. Ottawa University, the 
Normal School, the Collegiate Institute, as well as numerous public and 
private institutions, provide ample and thorough instruction in every branch 
of the arts and sciences. 

It has been said that Ottawa has more millionaires within its 
boundaries than any other city in Canada. The lumber barons of the 
Dominion nearly all reside at the Capital, as do all the wealthy contrac- 
tors. One citizen of Ottawa holds stock in a bank to the value of 
$1,300,000. 

The streets are well paved and kept in excellent condition. The 
electric railway has always been famous for its good service, and is 
looked upon by experts as a model. By it, the suburbs are placed in 
easy communication. 

Ottawa is extremely healthy. It is fortunate in possessing excellent 
sanitation. The water supply is obtained from the Ottawa river, 6,000 feet 
above the falls. The river for 100 miles above the city is a series of large, 
deep lakes, from which the water is decanted over rocky chutes, until it 
reaches the city in the condition of aerated lake water. The system of 
water works and sewerage excited the unbounded admiration of the 
American Public Health Association, which held the 26th -Annual Conven- 
tion there in 1898. 

Ottawa has a commercial side which must not be overlooked. As 
shown by the custom receipts, in 1869 the duty collected amounted to 
$98,000. Last year this had grown to more than $700,000. Then there 
are millions of dollars' worth of goods passing the customs for the Govern- 
ment use, upon which no duty is paid. This is a sign of prosperity not to 
be overlooked. The available water power of Ottawa, if concentrated, 
would produce electrical energy for all the manufacturing, electric lighting 
and street railways of the cities of Detroit, Toronto, Rochester and Cin-

cinnati combined. Besides this total averagfe of over 1,000,000 horse 
power, there is available, within eight miles of the city, 200,000 horse 
power, enough in itself to make Ottawa the foremost manufacturing centre 
of Canada. This enormous cheap power is naturally attracting all kinds of 
manufacturing. Probably the lumber interests are the largest. Surround- 
ing Ottawa, on the north and stretching away to the west and east, are 
thousands of miles of primitive forests, rich in hardwoods, spruce, birch, 
pine, etc. Many millions ot feet of lumber are shipped from Ottawa to the 
United States, Great Britain and other foreign parts. Pulp mills, box 
factories, match factories, planing mills, foundries, machine shops utilize 
the cheap water power on every side. 

Ottawa is of special value to the advertiser in that it contains all 
classes of people, the large manufacturing and lumbering concerns giving ■ 
employment to a great number of mechanics at good wages. Then there 
are the employees of the civil service, who all command good salaries, and 
are able to purchase luxuries as well as necessities. In addition to this, 
there are the members of the Governmeiyi, who spend a considerable por- 
tion of time each year in the Capital City, many of them being accom- 
panied by their wives. 

The advertiser, whatever his specialty, finds a ready market in the 
city of Ottawa, which can be reached at reasonable cost. 

The surrounding districts of the Ottawa and Gatineau Valleys are 
filled with prosperous farms, and this field is also covered by the Ottawa 
papers, which are conducted in true metropolitan style, and the three 
English papers have a wide circulation in Eastern Ontario. 

HULL, a city of 14,000 people, is a part of the city of Ottawa for 
all commercial purposes. The Ottawa newspapers circulate in this city, 
and the citizens do nearly all their shopping with the Ottawa merchants.

Canada's Greatest 
Newspaper 



The pre-eminence of the Montreal 
Star among the daily newspapers 
of Canada is well established and 
universally conceded. It is ad- 
mitted by hundreds of thousands 
of readers who look to it for news, 
by thousands of advertisers from all 
the leading business centres of the 
continent, and even by the publish- 
ers of other Canadian newspapers. 
To attain that proud position was 
the work of many years, and the 
success of the present is the reward 
of the labors of the past. The 
progress of the Star is largely an 
index of the progress and develop- 
ment of the Dominion of Canada, 
for as the country has prospered 
and enlarged so the Star has grown, 
ever keeping abreast of the times 
and always eager to meet the 
demands of the public for a bright, 
newsy, wholesome journal. Its 
success demonstrates that energy 
and enterprise, coupled with a 
broad public spirit and a keen in- 
terest in the welfare of the people, 
are the secrets of prosperity in the 
field of journalism, for these are 
the qualities that have endeared 



the Star not only to the people of 
Montreal, but to all the people of 
Canada. The wide field the Star 
reaches and the hundreds of thou- 
sands who daily read its columns 
are the best evidences perhaps of 
the hold it has upon the public. To- 
day according to a newspaper census 
Montreal Star is to be found in 
more than ninety per cent, of the 
English homes of the City of 
Montreal, while almost the entire 
suburban population are readers 
of it. The Weekly edition of 
the Montreal Star has a circulation 
in excess of 125,000 to paid in 
advance subscribers, and is dis- 
tributed at every post oflSce 
throughout the Dominion of Canada 
from the Atlantic to the Pacific 
Coast. The facts connected with 
this enormous circulation are 
established beyond question, and in 
such a manner as to inspire absolute 
confidence on the part of the public. 
Wholly disinterested accountants of 
highest repute have checked the 
circulation records of the Star, and 
have invariably found them to be 
as represented ; and further, the 



A. McKiM & Co., Advertising Agency, Montreal and Toronto. 



THE CANADIAN NEWSPAPER DIRECTORY 



% 



Star always keeps these records 
open to the public, and invites in- 
spection, especially the inspection 
of the advertising public who have 
a direct pecuniary interest in know- 
ing that the circulation claimed is 
real and permanent. The Montreal 
Star believes in letting the adver- 
tiser know what he is getting for 
his money, and it invites^ an open 
audit and searching investigation 
into its circulation returns in the 
interest of the advertisers using its 
columns. In this way the 
' ' Association of American Adver- 
tisers" recently audited "The 
Star's" circulation, and gave a 
certificate awarding the Montreal 
Star an average bona fide paid 
circulation of 56,543 copies, and 
to the Weekly Star, (The Family 
Herald and Weekly Star), a average 
bona fide paid circulation of 145,822 
copies per issue. The Montreal 
Star has by its straight forward, 
open, business-like policy with the 
public won a dignified position in 
Canadian Journalism, and it com- 
mands to-day the respect of the 
entire public. The Montreal Star, 
as is well known, occupies its own 
magnificent and thoroughly modern 
building, in which are located all 
the departments of its publishing 
business. Its executive is pro- 
gressive and thoroughly up-to-date, 
and its mechanical plant is of the 
most improved kind. All its 
machinery is driven by electricity 
generated on the premises. 



The Star is one of the leading 
metropolitan newspapers of this 
continent, and it is not too much 
to say that it is one of the public 
institutions of Canada of which the 
country may well be proud. 

Not only as a newspaper, but as 
an advertising medium, is the Mont- 
real Siar the greatest publication 
in Canada. It has a wide field, and 
it occupies every part of it. It is 
pre-eminently the newspaper of the 
Canadian people, and through no 
other medium can the advertiser 
reach so large a portion of the 
reading public of this country. 
The Montreal Star has a circula- 
tion greater than the combined 
circulation of all the other English 
newspapers published in Montreal. 
It not only,holds the local field, but 
through its weekly edition reaches 
far out into the most distant parts 
of Canada. The circulation of the 
Weekly Star, (The Family Herald 
and Weekly Star), extends over the 
whole of this continent. There is 
scarcely a post ofiice in the 
Dominion that it does not enter. 
Besides its wide circulation, the 
character of its readers must be 
taken into consideration when esti- 
mating its value as an advertising 
medium. In its readers are repre- 
sented the very best classes of the 
rural population-— prosperous far- 
mers and well-to-do residents of 
the towns and villages of Canada. 
These are the cla^ises to whom 
advertisers always desire to speak.

In singling out the Star as the leading representative paper of Canada, 
it is no disparagement of great papers like the Toronto Globe and Mail, 
both of which readily concede the Star's superlative position.

Saturday nigbt 



a handsomely illustrated, i6 page weekly, devoted to cur- 
rent comment on Politics, Religion, Literature, the Drama, ~ 
Society, Music, Art, Sport — and the interests of its readers, 
is read and respected because it 

TELLS THE TRUTH 

entertainingly and courageously. 

It is edited for the good and growth of the whole 
Canadian community, and is a class paper only to the extent 
of being high-priced and high-toned in the best sense of 
the word. 

It is read by the best informed, best educated and 
most cosmopolitan people from the Atlantic to the Pacific, 
and is used as a "Letter from Home" by those who keep in 
communication with absent friends. 

It is botl^tlt by those who have the price to buy 
what is worth buying, no matter what is the cost, and by 
enough of them to make it the best advertising medium in 
Canada for those who have good goods to sell. 

Its rates are Ki^li eno\i£^li to enable it to 
refuse swindling advertisements ; and consequently the 
appearance of an "ad" in its columns is considered a guar- 
antee that the advertiser will keep faith withTiis customers. 

Its rates are Iomt enoti^h to enable every 
judicious advertiser to make money out of a prudent invest- 
ment in its space.

daily in all the towns and villages which dot the railroads and run through the rich fruit- 
growing country, the populous mining districts and the scattered fishing hamlets of these 
four provinces. They cover the towns. 

Average Circulation 4*000 

COUNTRYSIDE.— "The Nova Scotian and Weekly Chronicle" penetrates to 
even the most remote districts, is read and re-read, borrowed and loaned in every nook and 
corner in these Provinces of a million and a half people. The new growth of this old 
journal for the past eighteen months has been phenomenal, and to-day it enjoys the largest 
circulation of any paper published east of Montreal. 
Average circulation, July I905 to June I904, inclusive, 16, 34*9. 

NOTE. — Besides covering Nova Scotia so completely, these three papers have a good 
circulation in the other Maritime Provinces, New Brunswick, P. E. Island, Newfoundland.

QUALITY ai 

OF PUBLICITY I] 



#® Advertisers value this paper more for the Class and Quality of its 
circulation than for the mere number of copies printed. Among the old 
Chemists gold was symbolically represented by the sign 9 — American 
Newspaper Directory. 

^^•^ the 22,168 newspaper publications in the 
^^ Untited States, to only 111 has the great dis- 
tinction of the Gold Marks been awarded by the 
American Newspaper Directory — the standard au- 
thority on the subject. 

C^-P the 1,083 newspapers published in Canada, the 
^■^ American Newspaper Directory awards this 
coveted distinction to three only. 

^^«^ A of these three highly honored Canadian 
^^**^^ papers is The Halifax Herald. 

(See page 1,109, American Newspaper Directory, 1904 edition.) 

Newspapers value the *'Gold Marks" distinction just 
as a soldier values the V. C. medal.

A VOICE FROM THE ANTIPODES. 



Mr. Burriss Gahan, Australian represent- 
ative of the Dr. Williams Medicine Co. of 
Brockville, Ont., Proprietors of Pink Pills, 
in a personal letter to the editor of The 
Province, under date of June 14th, 1904, 
writes: — "You may be interested in hearing 
how far afield The Province goes. My 
young brother in London has a school 
chum who showed him one of my letters 
in your columns; and a chemist around the 
corner from me here in Sydney, N.S.W., 
showed me the same issue and asked me 
if I was the writer. Sydney and London 
— ten thousand miles apart, and The 
Province in both ! There should be a 
moral for advertisers in that." 

There is! 

The Province is in a Class by Itself, 

Mo other paper begins to cover the 
B. C. field. ITS SUPREMJiCY IS 
UNDISPUTED. You cannot reach 
the consumers of British Columbia 
and the Canadian Pacific Coast 
without using the columns of the 

Bancoitber Probince 

Messrs. A. McKim & Co., Publishers of 
this Directory, will be pleased to supply 
advertisers with rates and all particulars.

The Toronto 
Globe 



CANADA'S 
NATIONAL 
PAPER . . . 



was founded in 1844. It celebrated 
its 60th birthday by the issue of a 
Special Number a short lime ago. 
This issue offered contemporaries 
an opportunity to express their 
views of the Globe and the place 
it occupies in the world's journal- 
ism. A few extracts, from the 
many hundreds that appeared, 
follow : — 

'•After an experience of over 37 years 
in the paper and printing business, I feel 
I can safely say that your effort surpasses 
anything I have ever steii of like char- 
acter." — Mr. Henry C. Bambridge, Presi- 
dent. Stationers^ Board of Trade of New 
York. 

" We offer the warmest congratulations 
to our vigorous Canadian contemporary, 
which rightly claims to be one ot the 
most successful of the world's news- 
papers." — Lloyds' Weekly News. 

" The history of the Globe is inter- 
woven with the history of the Dominion 

as an impersonal force in public 

affairs." — London Advertiser. 

" It affords convincing evidence of 
vitality." — The News, Toronto. 

" The number furnished an unique 

history of the period covered by the 

Globe since its establishment to combat 
the family compact and battle for respon- 
sible Government. " — IVtnnipeg Tribune. 

" The Globe is a huge power in Canada, 
and its influence is likely to wax rather 
than to wane as Canada moves to- 
wards her great destiny among the 
nations " — British and Colonial Printer 
Ofid Stationer. 

" To-day it stands'a 'topmost Gargarus' 
in newspaperdom all over the world." — 
New y^ork Editor and Publisher. 



" .... what a power the Globe has 
been in the life of the Dominion."— 
IVoodstock Sentinel-Review. 



" highly creditable to the great 

Canadian Journal." — Hamilton Spectator.

The Banner Dairy Section of Canada is Covered Exclusively by the Woodstock 

-^ Sentinel -Review V 



THIS sketch 
shows the 
County of 
Oxford, rightly 
named "The 
Banner County" 
of Ontario, cov- 
ered by the 
Daily & Week- 
ly issues of the 

Sentinel -Review. 

It is the rich- 
est and most 
fertile County in 
the Province. 
The population 
exceeds 50,000. 
In this County 
there are 120 
post offices 
reached by the 

Sentinel -Kepiew. 

Woodstock i s 
the geograph- 
ical centre ; the 
County seat; the 
Capital of the 
district and 
the distributing 
point for 100,000 
people. The 
lines of the two 
great railway 
systems of Can. 
radiate from it in 
seven directions 




TEN REASONS sh^'ou'Ld^u'se THE SENTINEL-REVIEW 



I — It is the most widely circulated newspaper 
ir. Onlario, population considered. 

2 — It is the only paper in Oxford Co. which 
publishes sworn detailed circulation statements. 

3 — No local Weekly in Canada has a larger 
circulation than that of the Weekly Sentinel- 
Review. 

4 — The Daily Sentinel-Review haii more than 
twice the combined circulation of the two other 
County Dailies. 

5— Drivers carrv the Sentinel-Review to the far- 
mers N., .S., E. & W. of Woodstock, within a 
radius of 15 miles every afternoon. 



6— Special carriers deliver the Sentinel-Review 
every evening in 20 towns and villages. 

7— We guarantee that four-fifths of the i>eople 
of the City of Woodstock and Oxford Co. read 
the Sentinel-Review. 

S — .\s the Sentinel-Review thoroughly covers the 
County by itself— it makes this the cheap>est terri- 
tory in the province to cover. 

9— Cirailation of the Daily Sentinel-Review at 
present 153.625, Saturdays, 3,S5o; Weel£ly Sentinel- 
Review, 4.200. 

10 — The circulation or delivery service is not 
duplicated by any other newspaper.

other English paper in the Province. The reasons for its supremacy are given. It 
supplies more local matter than all the other papers in its territory. Established in 
1S97 on new and original lines, the wisdom of the publishers' policy of confining all 
their efforts to the Daily is shown by the growth of the Daily Record to the place of 
the greatest small city Daily in America. It has no w^eekly and no job plant. It 
reaches 183 towns and villages within a radius of 40 miles. It has over 125 corres-

publish in the same territory. Its subscription price is ^r.so per annum; it is 
published in its own building, and has the latest and best machinery, type setting

How^ Many Distinct Fields 
In Canada? 

[very large City in Canada represents a field for the advertiser. 
The people flock from all the surrounding villages and country 
to shop in the cities. This makes an easy proposition for the 
advertiser. Just as much as the city people set the fashion in 
dressing, so they set the fashion in shopping. The stores and 
goods that are popular in the city are popular with the country 
people also. Advertise in a city medium and you get the trade 
of the city buyers and the trade of their friends and visitors too.

7,400 Women Readers 

in the City of London, means just 7,400 buyers of advertised goods. 

The men make the money; the women spend it — and women are 

advertisement readers. Our Women's, Society and Musical 

pages, our local cartoons and other bright features, 

combine to give the Echo more women readers 

than any other paper published in London. 

Our claim that one woman is 

REACHED BY 

each copy of the Echo, is a very modest

LE NATIONALISTE 

A Canada-First paper. 

The only exponent of independent opinion in French 
Canadian politics. 

Fights for Canadian autonomy in political, military and 
commercial matters, and for public rights in the management 
of the country's natural resources. 

A sworn opponent of corporate greed, of trusts and monopolies. 
The peojjle love it for the enemies it has made. 

Two full pages of bright, breezy, bristling, signed editorial 
in each issue. 

Members of Parliament write in it. 

The recognized organ of the rising generation of French 
Canadian writers. 

Comes out on Sunday mornings. A splendid medium of 
advertisement for first-class goods — will not advertise fake 
enterprise.

reaches daily more than 85 per cent, of the total 
purchasing power of the French population. 




Advertisers who desire a share of 
the growing trade of the Province 
of Quebec must cater to existing 
conditions. All advertisers who 
are using LA PATRIE and 
LE CULTIVATEUR are 
reaching the French people of the 
city and province — who can afford 
all the necessaries and most of the 
luxuries advertisers have to offer. 



Quality and quantity of circul- 
ation makes the paying medium, 
La Patrie having both— it pays.

To the Editor of 

THE DAILY TELEGRAPH. 

Dear Sir :— 

I picked up a copy of your paper on a niorniug train, and 
was greatly impressed with the form and makeup of the same, it 
being quite up to the standard of a first-class newspaper, and com- 
paring favorably with those of much larger cities. 

I am a commercial traveller, making all the large cities of the 
United States and Canada, and am always glad to see a newspaper, 
the front page of which is free from advertisements and full of cur- 
rent news. Judging from what I have learned of your publication, I 
have no doubt it will continue to improve and please the public as it 
has pleased me. 

Wishing you every success, 

I am, yours truly,
