NINETEENTH YEAR. 



NEW YOUK.

1887. 






Entered according to Act of Congress, in the year 1887, by Geo. P. Rowell & Co., in the 
office of the Librarian of Congress, at Washington. 



PREFACE 



THE latest authentic information which could be obtained 
respecting Newspapers will be found in this, the Nineteenth 
Annual Edition of the American Newspaper Directory. It has 
been the sustained and well defined purpose of the Publishers 
to make the Directory as complete and accurate as is possible in 
a work of this character, without regard to the labor and expense 
necessary to produce such a result. 

Numerous changes occur every year, every month, in fact 
each day, and to correctly chronicle all of these, to obtain copies 
and minutely describe all new publications ; and more difficult 
still to eliminate such as have died ; to supply and correct the 
description of towns which constitutes the Gazetteer matter, found 
to be so important a feature in this publication, and to obtain all 
accessible information respecting circulations of papers, requires 
the constant attention of the Editor of the Directory. Upon 
these subjects he is at all times glad to receive information which 
will enable him to detect and correct errors of judgment or of 
fact. 

This edition shows the number of papers published in the 
United States to be 14,706 ; an increase of 546 during the past 
year. The astonishing increase in the number of Newspapers 
during the past seventeen years is exhibited below : 

1871 6,056. 

1872 6,519. 

1873 6,875. 

1874 7,339- 

1875 7,870. 

1876 8,129. 

1877 7,958. 

1878 8,275. 

1879 8,703. 

1880 9,723. 

1881 10,267. 

1882 10,611. 

1883 11,196. 

1884 12,671. 

1885 13,494- 

1886 14,160. 

1887 14,706. 

The daily publications show an increase this year of 95 ; the 
preceding year it was ^t, ; the weeklies have grown from 10,685 
to 11,116, and there are 52 more monthlies; in the edition for 
1886 the increase in monthlies recorded was but one. 

Pennsylvania shows the greatest increase in dailies, 17 ; Cali- 
fornia coming next with 13. Kansas leads in growth of weeklies, 



iv PREFACE. 



having 8i more than last year ; Nebraska coming next with 55. 
The most prominent increase in monthhes is in New York, where 
they have grown from 312 to 354. 

Seven States show a decrease, four of them belong to the 
South and two to New England. New Hampshire and Virginia 
have each six papers less than one year ago and Georgia five less. 

The New England States exhibit a net increase of 13 ; Mid- 
dle States 67 ; Southern States 91 and Western States 330; the 
Territories 40 and the District of Columbia 6. It will be noticed 
that the growth in numbers in the State of Kansas has been 
about equal to the increase in all of the Southern States com- 
bined ; Kansas, with Nebraska, furnishing over one-fourth of the 
total increase for the year. 

Nebraska has the largest number of papers in proportion to 
its population, the ratio being i to every 1,025 persons; South 
Carolina has the smallest, i to every 10,370. Of the Territories 
Dakota has i paper for every 412 persons, while Utah, which has 
a population 14,000 greater, has but 28 papers or one for every 
5,240. The ratio in New York is i to 3,200 ; in Massachusetts 
I to 3,000 and in Pennsylvania i to 3,750. The vicissitudes of 
the press are illustrated by the ratio of changes in certain States. 
Last year Illinois and Iowa exhibited an increase of 48 and 44 
respectively, while Indiana had increased but 5. This year 
Illinois shows an increase of 15, Iowa remains the same as last 
year and Indiana has increased 19. Last year the increase in 
New York was 30, this year it is but 14. Pennsylvania, accord- 
ing to the last Directory, had three dailies less than in the pre- 
ceding edition, this year it has 17 more. 

The Class publications have been rearranged with a view to 
greater convenience in referring to them. 

It has been the object of the publishers to so restrict the 
number of advertisements in this edition as to relieve the book 
of a portion of its bulkmess and give additional value and promi- 
nence to those which have been inserted. Papers which do 
not claim some special merit of value to advertisers have not 
been applied to for advertisements, and many orders have been 
declined for reasons which seem to make such a course the wisest 
to pursue. 

Warmest thanks are due to the many publishers of leading 
journals who, by a generous patronage, have made it possible to 
issue so complete a compendium of the periodical press of 
America.

Newspaper Advertising. 



AN EXPLANATION OF THE PURPOSES AND METHODS OF 
GEO. P. ROWELL & CO'S NEWSPAPER ADVERTISING 

BUREAU. 



In 1865 we organized a Bureau for the reception and for- 
warding of advertisements for all Newspapers, and for more 
than twenty years have conducted a general Newspaper Adver- 
tising business. 

Ten years ago Messrs. Geo. P. Rowell & Co. established their Advertising Agency in 
New York City. Five years ago they absorbed the business conducted by Mr. John Hooper, 
who was the first to go into this kind of enterprise. Now they have the satisfaction of 
controUing the most extensive and complete advertising connection which has ever been 
secured, and one which would be hardly possible in any other country but this. They have 
succeeded in working down a complex business into so thoroughly a systematic method that 
no change in the newspaper system of America can escape notice, while the widest informa- 
tion upon all topics interesting to advertisers is placed readily at the disposal of the public. — 
Times (New York), June 14th, 1875. 

We undertake to represent American periodical publications : 
the daily and other Newspapers of the city of New York, and 
all other American cities ; the Religious, Agricultural and other 
Newspapers published in the interests of the various sects, classes, 
trades or interests ; and also the best county journals of local 
circulation and influence. 
2 



22 GEO. P. ROWELL & GO'S 

We receive regularly and keep on file nearly all Newspapers 
issued daily, weekly, monthly, or other, throughout the land. 

We confine our transactions to Newspapers and Magazines 
[periodicals], and do not undertake the management of any 
advertising in books, or by means of signboards, posters, etc. 

We are in direct correspondence with publishers of all the 
leading and influential Newspapers. 

We have an established credit with them, so that there is no 
delay on that score about the insertion of an advertisement 
which has been ordered by us. This is a matter of prime im- 
portance to our customers. 

We have a thoroughly perfected system, and the best facili- 
ties for conducting the necessary negotiations, and watching the 
fulfillment of advertising contracts. 

We include among our occasional patrons fully three-fifths of 
all who advertise in journals outside of the immediate neighbor- 
hoods where they reside and transact business. 

The office, outfit, and requisite plant for a first-class agency in New York cost at least 
$100,000 investment, and a weekly pay-roll of $1,000. There is no doubt in our mind, after 
forty years' experience, that such an agency as that of Geo. P. Rowell & Co. is better for the 
advertiser and better for the newspaper than any special, exclusive agency. The newspapers 
combine in what is termed an associated press, by which nine-tenths of the news is gathered. 
Why should they not also have their advertising gathered by single large agencies in New 
York, Philadelphia, BostoA, Chicago, etc.? Such co-operation reduces the expense. It does 
the work for the advertiser more satisfactorily and cheaply, while at the same time it gives the 
publisher greater net results. — Evening Wiscottsin (Milwaukee, Wis,), Dec. 19th, 1885. 

Whose Patronage is Sought. 

We seek the patronage of business men, of merchants, pub- 
lishers and manufacturers, the skilled, the thrifty, the inventive, 
the earnest in every pursuit, confident that by our perfected 
facilities we can procure better work for less money than it is 
possible for private parties to do. 

Who Need our Services. 

Newspapers announce their prospectuses and desirable pre- 
miums. Steamships advertise excursions or reduced fares. Sum- 
mer Resorts issue announcements to attract visitors. Educational 
institutions seek pupils. Business men want skilled workmen or 
assistants. Clerks and others desire situations. Brothers, hus- 
bands and sons disappear, and must be advertised for in the 
cities where they were last heard of. New corporations seek 
stockholders who have money to invest. 



NEWSPAPER ADVERTISING BUREAU. 23 

Those who require our services may be found in every busi- 
ness : Proprietors of patent medicines ; persons who have books, 
patent-rights or other articles to sell through canvassers, peddlers, 
or otherwise ; manufacturers who wish to introduce or increase 
the sale of their products ; States or Railroad Companies wishing 
to attract settlers to desirable but unoccupied lands ; Bankers 
who would sell investment securities. 

A man wishing to sell a farm, factory or business interest, 
may believe that a customer would more likely be found in Bos- 
ton, Washington or San Francisco, than in other cities, but not 
know the names of the papers most likely to reach a possible 
buyer in those places or the cost of inserting his announcement. 
This information it is our province to furnish. 

Through the entire round of affairs advertising has to be 
brought into frequent or occasional requisition. It often happens 
that a man who never expended a dollar for this purpose, sud- 
denly finds himself obliged to make a considerable outlay without 
time for deliberation, or the possession of any knowledge of the 
methods to be employed. To persons of this class the benefit to 
be derived from such an office as we conduct is very apparent. 

It is conducted upon the principles which are believed to be 
the right ones for securing best and most satisfactory results. 

The advertiser of greatest experience cannot have the same 
familiarity with newspaper values and rates, which our extensive 
dealings secures to us, kept constantly in communication as we 
are with publishers of every class. 

To any one who thiiiks ; the advantages of such an institution to advertisers in a small 
or large way is obvious. It would be impossible for small firms, enterprising though they may 
be, to attempt without great cost, to pbtain such verified information as such an agency can 
furnish. What the newspaper requires is security of payment. What the advertiser desires 
is the certamty of fidelitj^ to his interests, and assurances that the representations as to 
character, circulation and availability of the mediums which he employs are to be depended 
upon. No agency can have a permanent and profitable existence lacking these elements. 
There is a perfect system in the management of the business of Geo. P. Rowell & Co., and the 
merchant who intrusts his advertising to this firm may expect to have it attended to with 
fidelity and in the most accurate manner. They have won the respect and confidence of all 
with whom they do business, and every succeeding year adds hosts of names to their list of 
customers. — Morjiing Nezus (\^-\\.\mx\g\.on, Del.), Feb. 5th, 1886. 

Coinparative Values of Newspapers. 

To be able to designate the political tendencies, be informed 
concerning the growing or declining popularity of particular 
journals, to know what statements purporting to emanate from 
the publishers' ofiice can be relied upon ; and which must be dis- 
credited ; to know where most service can be obtained for the 
money ; what prices are high, and what low ; all come within the 



24 GEO. P. ROW ELL & GO'S 

province of the Advertising Bureau. Its success will largely 
depend upon the prompt accuracy with which it imparts to its 
patrons the desired information on these and kindred points. 

A thorough advertising agency, an honest advertising agency and a valuable advertising 
agency mean much more than might at first appear. The advertiser wants to know at what 
points his particular commodity will be likely to be most eagerly sought, from what section he 
may look for the largest returns, and what particular journals may reach in those sections 
such people as will be most likely to patronize the interests which he has in hand. The jour- 
nals are, of course, anxious to be assured of the certainty of payment and the continuation of 
patronage. These two interests are those which a really intelligent advertising agency 
desires to serve, and to thoroughly ser\'e, which is its only hope of success. Nobody under- 
stood this better than did Messrs. Geo. P. Rowell & Co. They saw in the first place that hon- 
esty — to place the matter on no higher plane— was the 'best policy ; that to serve the system 
in which they believed was to serve each of these interests alike with fidelity and thor- 
oughness. — ^^-c^r^ (Philadelphia, Pa.), Dec. 2nd, iSS";. 

The proprietor of a Newspaper, the clerk in his employ, the 
special canvasser who represents him, is never the person to 
whom an advertiser should apply for information about the best 
medium for spreading abroad his announcements. Fromi the 
nature of the case there is but one reply to be expected from 
them, namely: "ADVERTISE IN 'OUR' PAPER." They 
do not possess, and it is not their business to possess, the infor- 
mation about a competing journal which may make it the more 
economical medium through which the advertiser may accom- 
plish the purpose he has in view. 

IV/iaf We Do. 

We undertake to have at hand a schedule of the rates for 
advertising adopted by the publishers of every newspaper of 
consequence ; to be able to quote figures to an advertiser who 
wishes to insert an advertisement in one paper or several ; and 
to procure the prompt insertion of the advertisement without 
any extra charge for the service rendered by us : — which ser- 
vice consists of quoting the price, printing or writing as many 
duplicates of the advertisement as may be required to furnish 
one for each paper, forwarding the copy for insertion (at our 
own expense for postage or messenger service), examining the 
papers to see that the advertisement appears at the time and 
in the manner that it ought to, checking each issue of the 
advertisement in each paper on checking cards specially pre- 
pared for the purpose, and which are at all times subject to 
the inspection of the advertiser, and marking plainly in each 
paper the advertisement as it appears, so that should the adver- 
tiser come (or send) for the purpose of having the files examined 
(to see that the service for which his money pays has been actu- 



NEWSPAPER ADVERTISING BUREAU. 



ally rendered) the eye may promptly perceive his announcement, 
without searching through a page or the whole paper. 

I have within the past few days taken a little turn among well-known NEWSPAPER 
MANAGERS, so as to get New Yorkers' criticisms on this firm and their methods. All 
speak well of them, and the only criticism that is ever made is that they know too well every 
point that is ever yielded to any advertiser, and insist upon getting it for their customers. 
Their knowledge of our own affairs is a hefp to us, for their orders come to us so specific, 
their copy is so clearly put, in type or manuscript, their wants so distinctly expressed, that 
there seldom arises a question about their advertisements, as is too often the case with other 
patrons. And their system of payments, too, is such that every New York publisher honors 
their orders as quickly as those of any house. The publishers here are also glad to do busi- 
ness with them from the fact that no time is lost in the doing of the business. They do not go 
to the offices to quibble about rates, position, types, and a thousand other things that suggest 
themselves to the novice or occasional advertiser. They know already the possibilities, and 
they are, with all their shrewdness and experience, very reasonable men. So it is that busi- 
ness coming from them is treated as favorably as it is possible from any one. They possess 
every facility now obtainable for carrying out any advertiser's plan with the utmost rapidity, 
greatest care, the least labor to the best advantage, and at the mir\imum of cost. — Moses 
King'' s Sketch in Bradstreef s (New York City), April 3rd, 1886. 

If errors or omissions occur, it is our duty to notify pub- 
lishers, at our own expense for labor, postage or messenger, and 
to see to it that the publisher of the paper actually does the 
specified service for which the advertiser contracted. 

Thousajids of Advertising Patrons. 

We have on our ledgers the names of more than five thousand 
advertisers, who are now doing or have recently done business 
with American Newspapers, through our office. Some have en- 
trusted their orders to us constantly for twenty years. For one 
we have placed advertising amounting to nearly a million dol- 
lars, and we count several patrons from whom our orders have 
amounted to more than a quarter of a million of dollars 
individually. 

The revolution that Rowell & Co. brought about, a score of years ago, created the ad- 
vertising agency as now conducted. They, very early in their career, established an unques- 
tioned credit, and many an outside publisher was better pleased to get an order from this firm 
at a low rate than from other firms at a much higher one. They do not try to allure any one 
into any line of advertising. They will, however, furnish him by all odds the most reliable 
data on which to base his decision. They will not try to get a man to spend money, but will 
see that he gets the full value of any money he wishes to spend. Only in such an office, 
backed up with such a long-continued and well-developed organization, can the true and un- 
prejudiced information be ascertained. The records of the firm will show that it holds the 
patronage of its customers as long and as satisfactorily as does almost any firm in any branch 
of business. Concerns who were patrons twenty years ago, are patrons to-day. It is the 
accumulation of old customers, not the getting of transient or new customers, that would war- 
rant a concern like this to go systematically to work to earn the good-will of the newspaper 
world. — Bradstreef s (New York City), April 3rd, 1886. 

There is no advertiser upon the transaction of whose business 
we cannot make a profit, and, at the same time, save to him a 
percentage of the present cost, even though he count as nothing 



26 GEO. P. ROWELL & GO'S 

the postage, stationery and other expenses incidental to corre- 
spondence and watching the conduct of the business on his 
own account. 

We secure the insertion of any advertisement at as low a 
rate as would be accorded to the advertiser should he apply to 
the journals direct ; and are allowed an agent's commission by 
the publisher, to remunerate us for the time and expense re- 
quired in transacting the business. 

Neither the newspaper nor the advertising patrons suffer at their hands. They do what 
they agree to do, and do it so well and thoroughly that there is no cause of complaint. The 
Hawk-Eye^ from its long experience with Rowell & Co., most heartily commends their agency 
to the advertising public. It does not need to commend them to the newspaper fraternity, as 
every publisher knows by personal experience the enviable reputation and straightforward 
business methods of that firm. — Hawk-Eye (Burlington, Iowa), Sept. 12th, 1886. 

Small Advertisers. 

We have a great number of customers who pay us occasional 
sums ranging from ten dollars to fifty, and these patrons are 
valued. What they do is sufficient to make them familiar with 
our methods ; and there is a moderate profit accruing from the 
transaction of such business as they bring. If each occasional 
advertiser is favorably impressed, the words of commendation 
he lets fall direct other persons to our ofiice who otherwise 
might never have heard of us ; and from among these, as time 
passes on, large and bold advertisers develop. Every successful 
enterprise has a small beginning. 

Estimates and Proofs Exhibited. 

For any responsible Advertiser making application in good 
faith, we prepare a written estimate showing the approximate cost 
of any proposed advertising. 

Messrs. Rowell & Co. have already displayed much enterprise in affording their patrons 
and the advertising public generally all information possible regarding newspapers, and in 
placing at their disposal all the facilities which a long and honorable dealing with the papers 
of this country has enabled that popular and reputable firm to acquire. — Daily Northwestern 
(Oshkosh, Wis.), Jan. 6th, 1887. 

If desired we prepare and exhibit printed proofs of the 
proposed advertisement. 

Our customers at all times, within three months from date of 
publication, have access to complete files of the Newspapers in 
which their advertisements are inserted. 

Tell What You Want. 

Before the wants of an advertiser can be properly attended 
to it is necessarv for him to make known the result which he 



NEWSPAPER ADVERTISING BUREAU. 



wishes to accomplish. Nothing so well tells the object which he 
has in mind as a copy of the advertisement he purposes using. 

Many papers have special rates for certain classes of adver- 
tisements. Some insert no medical advertisements; others ex- 
clude announcements which leave the reader in doubt concerning 
the object or business of the advertiser; many decline to place 
before their readers the prospectuses of other Newspapers; and 
still others exclude pictures or large display type. For these and 
other reasons it is of importance to know in advance not only 
what the business is for which we are to quote prices for adver- 
tising, but also the style of display of the advertisement which 
is to be used. 

The science of writing advertisements consists mainly m 
saying in a few plain words exactly what it is desired to say — 
precisely as it would be written in a letter or told to an ac- 
quaintance. 

When an advertiser whose mercantile rating is sufficiently 
high to make his credit good for his wants sends a copy of his 
advertisement to the Advertising Bureau, with instructions to 
insert it in certain papers which he names (having stated whether 
daily or weekly editions are intended and named the time he 
wishes it to appear), and requests that bill for same be sent in due 
time, the work of the Advertising Bureau is plain, there is no 
opportunity for a misunderstanding : the work is done quickly 
and well, and without friction. 

But usually the advertiser wants" to know what the advertis- 
ing he intends doing will cost, and to tell this in advance (even 
approximately), calls for the fixing of a number of exact speci- 
fications. 

The papers to be used must be agreed upon. 

It must be decided how long the advertisement shall appear. 

Whether in daily edition, or weekly, or both ; and if in 
daily, whether it shall appear every day, every other day, or at 
other intervals. 

The copy must not only be exhibited, but the style of display 
also agreed upon. 

The great advertising agencies are an outgrowth of necessity to those who seek the 
newspapers and to the newspapers which seeks the advertiser. The millions of dollars 
sent annually in this country to newspapers, hundreds, and even thousands of miles 
from the advertisers, must eventually find a system of mtelligent distribution which 
relieves the latter of the expense of individual investigation, and the former of the 
risks involved in the acceptance of doubtful customers. Well, the system has come along 
with the demand, and, with the history of the progress of national advertising upon scientific 



28 GEO. P. ROWELL & GO'S 



principles, the name of George P. Rowell & Co. will always be inseparably linked, — Record 
(Philadelphia, Pa.), Dec. 2nd, 1885. 

What Makes a Good Advertisements 

An advertisement is of value not in proportion to its size, but 
according to its prominence and the completeness with which it 
expresses an idea. 

It should be so arranged that the prominent line may catch 
the eyes of the class of persons likely to be interested. When 
this is done, the rest of the announcement will be read, although 
set in small type. 

To address a Newspaper reader so as to secure attention, 
requires skill and experience. A card of four inches, whether 
well or ill done, costs the same, while in results there can be no 
comparison. We pay particular attention to the preparation of 
ATTRACTIVE advertisements. 

To secure a handsome and effective display of an advertise- 
ment, care must be taken to furnish each paper with copy which, 
if f(5llowed, will produce the desired result. 

An ordinary compositor has not the necessary skill to make 
an attractive card from manuscript, but even an apprentice will 
do very well when he has before him a printed slip showing 
which words should be displayed and what sorts of type may be 
advantageously used. 

The merchant who intrusts his advertising to this firm may expect to have it attended to- 
with the utmost fidelity and in the most accurate manner. It is in this way the Messrs. 
Rowell have built up the large and lucrative business which they now enjoy, and it is by strict 
adherence to these cardinal principles that they now owe the proud position they occupy. — 
-fffctjrt/ (Philadelphia, Pa.), Dec. 2nd, 1885. 

We Employ Expert Compositors. 

To properly display an advertisement requires skill ; to make 
it more attractive, and at the same time occupy less space, is a 
work of genius ; but when advertising space cost dollars for 
every line, it pays to employ the best talent to be obtained. It 
is a false economy, however, to use an advertisement which is 
crowded and imperfect ; better one insertion, and have it right, 
than three which are in a form which is unsatisfactory ! 

We have our own printing office arranged with especial refer- 
ence to enabling our compositors to make the most attractive 
display possible, in the designated space, with every advertise- 
ment intrusted to their care. 

Employing men of known skill and experience, we give them 
the additional benefit of constant practice, and are thus enabled 
to secure advantages of importance to our customers. 



NEWSPAPER ADVERTISING BUREAU. 29 

At all events, the advertisement to be used is the first thing 
upon which an understanding with the advertiser must be ar- 
rived at. 

If it requires no special display, the space may be ordered 
to be " as small as possible." 

If only a head line or one display line or word is to be made 
prominent, that statement is sufficiently definite. 

If the space which an advertisement is to occupy is to be 
designated, it should be given in inches or lines, and if in lines, 
the kind of type should be specified (Agate or Nonpareil). The 
term " SQUARE " should never be used in this connection ; its 
meaning is too indefinite. Fourteen solid agate lines make one 
inch in a Newspaper column, and twelve lines in nonpareil 
occupy the same space. Agate advertisements usually contain 
eight words to the line and nonpareil but seven. 

When printed copy is furnished, in the absence of instructions 
to the contrary, it is taken as indicating the style of display 
desired. 

Geo. P. Rowell & Co. have for twenty years conducted a general advertising business 
with American newspapers. They have spared neither labor or expense in the service of 
their customers. They have a most perfect system for transacting the business of newspaper 
advertising, and have established a credit with publishers ; the result of which is there is no 
delay in the appearance of an advertisement when ordered by them. This is a matter in itself 
of prime importance. The advertiser may be sure of his advertisement appearing on time. — 
Daily Times (Pekin, 111.), Jan 26th, 1886. 

When an advertiser is content to leave the matter of display 
to our own judgment, it is generally best for all parties, but in 
contracts of importance it is our custom to have sample adver- 
tisements printed and approved before forwarding for publica- 
tion. For this service it is not our practice to make a charge, 
unless the amount of labor involved seems excessive when con- 
sidered in connection with the business to be done. 

The experienced advertiser who knows exactly what he wants 
may always specify the style of display and the position his 
advertisement shall occupy. Every point which he deems impor- 
tant may be insisted upon to the veriest minutiae. We do not 
guarantee that any paper shall comply with all the requirements 
set forth, but unless every paper does so comply, that paper shall 
not have the order, or the advertiser be asked to pay for an in- 
sertion not in accordance with specifications. Publishers grant 
us every favor which can be allowed. 

There is a great deal of confidential knowledge which is at the ser\-ice of the customer 
who comes in contact with the business of the institution — points which it would be neither 
wise nor expedient to publish, but which are of incalculable advantage to the trade. — Record 
(Philadelphia, Pa.), Dec. 2nd, 1885. 



30 . GEO. P. ROWELL & GO'S 



After the advertisement has been determined upon, the next 
matter of importance is to name the Newspapers to be used. 

Designate the Papej-s : 

The Hst should designate whether daily or weekly issues, or 
both, are wanted, and whether, in dailies, the advertisement shall 
appear once, twice, thrice or six times a week, or include a Sun- 
day edition, if one is issued in connection with the paper under 
consideration. 

When the advertiser is competent to do so, he usually pre- 
pares his list without aid from us. When not posted about 
Newspapers, it is a practice with advertisers to write out a list of 
the towns in which they wish their announcements to appear ; 
after which, we write against each town or city the paper or 
papers which we recommend as best calculated to be of service. 

Their whole business is conducted on the best system that experience and care can 
develop. — Courier (Buffalo, N. Y,), Dec. 13th, 1884. 

Sometimes our patrons are not able to name either the papers 
which they ought to use or the places where they are issued. 
They wish to reach a class or section. For such we make known 
the publications to accomplish the object in view. To be able 
to inform the advertiser what particular journals are most read 
by a specified class of persons is one of the most important func- 
tions of the Advertising Bureau, 

Yearly Contracts are Cheapest — By Far. 

FIX THE TIME you wish to advertise, and plainly state 
it when you ask for an estimate of the cost. In a majority 
of papers, except the highest priced journals in the largest cities, 
the cost of inserting an advertisement for a year is not more 
than double the price for three months, and for three months not 
more than twice the cost for one month and for a month 
scarcely twice that demanded for a single week. The most suc- 
cessful advertisers make contracts by the year, but small adver- 
tisers, with limited means and credit, do not find it practicable to 
begin that way, and advertisements intended to serve a temporary 
purpose, or to try an experiment, sometimes require but one or a 
very few insertions. 

An honorable advertising agency really serves the best interests of both the newspaper 
and the advertiser, and for reasons palpable to any intelligent mind. Such an agency, if there 
be one in the country, is that of Geo. P. Rowell & Co., as we believe all newspaper men who 
have dealings with them will heartily testify. — Presbyterian (Atlanta, Ga.), Oct. 6th, 1886.

Ho7V Much Money ? 

Persons who have had httle experience as advertisers, often 
have a pretty clear understanding of what they would like to do, 
but are entirely ignorant of the probable cost. 

We have made out for such a person a plan of advertising 
calling for an investment of $5,000, and on submitting it for 
approval, found our customer dismayed at the magnitude of the 
expense, he not having contemplated an expenditure exceeding 
$200 or $300, possibly no more than $10 or $25. In such a case 
labor would have been saved if, at the commencement of the 
negotiation, the question, " How much money are you prepared 
to devote to this advertising ?" had been asked and answered. 

To the advertisers in a small way — that is in a comparatively small way— one need not 
ponder long to see what an advantage such an institution really is. It would be impossible, it 
is impossible, for such individuals or firms, enterprising as they may be, to attempt profitably 
to obtain from the vastly diversified sections of the country such information as such an 
agency can furnish them at once and without cost. To the more extensive, to the colossal 
advertiser, indeed, the advantages of such an institution are too manifest to need explanation. 
— Record (Philadelphia, Pa.), Dec. 2nd, 1885. 

Our Customers Are Entitled to Our Best Services. 

Whenever we are doing the advertising for any individual or 
firm, he is entitled to our best services. If he suggest using a 
paper which we know to be not the best for his purpose, we say 
so and give the reasons. We expend a good deal of time for 
small advertisers. We like to have our customers send us all the 
business they have to do, and when this is done we are content, 
and never take any exceptions because the amount is small. 

We promise those advertisers who intrust their advertising 
patronage to our management that we will not allow them to be 
charged, in any instance, any more than the publishers' schedule 
rates ; that we will procure for them the acceptance of any 
advantageous offer made to them definitely by any Newspaper 
publisher, advertising agent, or canvasser of responsibility : and 
in every case secure the lowest price obtainable for strictly first- 
class work. Competitors, anxious to gain a hearing and secure 
attention, occasionally make offers which it would advance the 
true interests of our customers to accept. In such cases we hold 
ourselves bound to secure for them the bargain offered. These 
bargains are sometimes based upon some actual advantage pos- 
sessed by the person making the offer, and in carrying out the 
agreement we might employ the very person who made the pro- 
posal. In that case the interests of our patron are as fully pro- 



32 GEO. P. ROW ELL & CO'S 

tected, and we have the satisfaction of retaining the supervision 
of his expenditures, and knowing that they are such as we would 
recommend. To have the business pass through our hands, 
tends to prevent any working at cross purposes, duphcation of 
orders, or other compUcations which are Hable to arise when the 
advertiser and the Advertising Bureau do not work in confiden- 
tial relations with each other, 

A perfect system prevails in the management of the business of Geo. P. Rowell & Co. , and 
the merchant who intrusts his advertising to this firm may expect to have it attended to 
with the utmost fidelity and in the most accurate manner. They have won the respect and 
confidence of all with whom they do business, and every succeeding year adds to their list of 
customers. The interests of the advertiser are carefully guarded. — Te/e^''r a/A (HaTrishurg, 
Pa.), Jan. 5th, 1886. 

On Confidential Terms. 

We work WITH the advertiser and FOR the advertiser, pre- 
cisely as an expert whose services were obtained to aid him at 
his own office would do. 

The secret of Rowell & Co.'s success is not hard to find. They do business in a fair, 
square way, perform w^hat they promise, and live up to the very letter of their contracts, both 
with the advertiser and the newspaper publisher. — Times (Trenton, N. J.), Jan. 7th, i886. 

How We Are Paid. 

We are paid for the service rendered the advertiser and for 
the expense of keeping up our establishment, by a commission 
from the Newspaper upon the price of the advertisements fur- 
nished by us. 

For instance, a five-line advertisement to appear in a certain 
New York daily newspaper, the schedule price of which is 25 
cents a line, makes a charge of $1.25. We charge the adver- 
tiser $1.25, and, when sending the order, the paper is instructed 
to charge us the same amount ; but when we pay the bill a re- 
bate or commission is allowed to us as " Advertising Agents." 

Geo. P. Rowell & Co. have for twenty years conducted a general advertising business 
with American newspapers. They have spared neither labor nor expense in the service of 
their customers. They have a most perfect system for transacting the business of newspaper 
advertising, and have established a credit with the publishers, the result of which is that there 
is no delay in the appearance of an advertisement when ordered by them. This is matter in 
itself of prime importance. The advertiser may be sure of his advertisement appearing on 
time, and to the publisher, coming from Rowell & Co., there is no hesitancy in inserting adver- 
tisements as far as the financial standing of the advertiser is concerned. — Daily Record (Dan- 
ville, Pa.), Feb. 6th, 1886. 

The commission allowed varies with different papers. 

Although many of our orders are for small amounts, yet some 
with which we are favored amount to as much as a thousand, 
and sometimes to thousands and tens of thousands of dollars. 

If it were not that occasional orders are for very large 



NEWSPAPER ADVERTISING BUREAU. 33 

amounts it would not be possible to maintain our establishment 
with the expenses necessary to make its appointments complete. 

IV/iy Prices Vary. 

In the matter of prices for advertising space, Newspapers are 
in classes. 

There are those who have a fixed schedule of charges, from 
which they do not deviate. 

There are others who have schedule rates from which they 
will not vary much, unless the order is specially desirable, either 
on account of its amount, character, or the influence it will per- 
haps exert on other advertisers. 

A third class is composed of Newspapers which take advertis- 
ing, as a rule, on the best terms they can get. 

The following are actual communications which have been 
received from honest, straightforward publishers of newspapers 
belonging to the last mentioned class : 

" It is impossible for me to fonvard you a schedule of rates of Advertising, as I have 



none." 



" I find that I have to make a separate contract with every Advertiser, and a schedule is 
rather a hindrance than a benefit." 

"We cannot name an arbitrary rate, for prices must bend to exigencies. Sometimes our 
columns are full — again we are hungry." 

" The reason we ask you §io for your last Advertisement, and run the other for $5, is be- 
cause when we took the first we were in need of ' Ads.' while now we have all we care for." 

" Sometimes it pays to run dead Advertisements, and at other times live ones are an ob- 
jection. I have not found it possible to be governed by cast-iron rates." 

The GREAT Newspapers, those best established and most 
prosperous, are largely of the first class. For a small advertise- 
ment for a week these papers are generally very cheap (consider- 
ing circulation and influence), and rather dear for a large one to 
go in by the year. They have so much short time advertising 
which goes in at full rates, that they have no space to spare at a 
reduced price, and consequently hold out very little if any in- 
ducement to advertisers to make yearly contracts. The number 
of newspapers of this class is small — not so many as a hundred, 
perhaps, out of the fifteen thousand which are published. 

The price at which the AVERAGE Newspaper publisher 
will contract for an advertisement, to be inserted by the year, is 
influenced by a number of considerations. Among the ques- 
tions which he may ask himself are these : 

How much will the advertiser pay ? 

If I accept the order at the price offered, am I sure to get 
my money ? 



34 GEO. P. ROWELL & GO'S 

How much does the advertising amount to at my schedule 
rates ? and is it probable that the advertiser considers himself 
obliged to use my paper ? for if so, no great concession in price is 
necessary. 

Are my columns so full that I shall not specially regret it if I 
fail to secure this order ? 

Is it a case where, if I do not accept the offer made I shall 
get nothing ? and if I do accept, all that I do receive will be 
so much clear gain, because I have space to spare which nobody 
else seems to want at this time. 

Nothing is more quickly affected by stagnation in business 
than space in the advertising columns of most Newspapers. It 
is unlike other kinds of merchandise. The grocer who owns a 
barrel of sugar, will have it in stock to-morrow^ if he does not sell 
it to-day ; and although the price of sugar may decline, it will 
still be worth something : and there is a possibility that the price 
may advance. But with a publisher who has a column of space 
to dispose of the case is different. His Newspaper goes to press 
to-day ! If he does not sell his space it is lost, and worse than 
lost, so far as immediate income is concerned : for if an advertiser 
does not pay for an advertisement to fill the void, reading matter 
must be set up for the purpose, and the printer must be paid for 
the type setting. Consequently, in the majority of Newspapers, 
except for the local patronage, which is compelled to come from 
the necessities of the case, the price of advertising depends 
largely upon the question, " How much can we get ? " This 
reasoning is not in use in the one hundred great Newspaper 
offices, but is constantly used in the ten thousand less successful 
establishments, and must always so continue from the nature of 
the case. 

Publishers become expert, and can tell better than would be 
imagined how much an advertiser will pay. The vender of a 
patent medicine who has sold his goods to a village druggist on 
a promise to advertise a year in the village paper, will find the 
price of that advertising held with greater firmness if the village 
editor happens to have heard of the transaction. 

When a Newspaper publisher who has variable rates of 
charge, finds that he has much less advertising than he thinks 
his paper should carry, he is not likely to refuse even a low 
offer for a desirable advertisement. The publisher of a coun- 
try weekly, who asks $ioo per annum for a column, having 
a couple of columns to spare, will be likely to sell one at a low 



NEWSPAPER ADVERTISING BUREAU. 35 

rate to a responsible purchaser — possibly as little as $20 would 
be accepted ; but after the contract is closed, if another adver- 
tiser applies for a column, he will be likely to have to pay a 
higher rate ; and if two or three come along, the paper becomes 
so crowded that the last applicant will be refused a column even 
at $100, on the ground that space must be reserved for transient 
customers. 

So also a paper which has promised positions to two or three 
advertisers, ceases to have desirable positions to offer, and de- 
mands a high price from a new applicant, while a neighboring 
journal, which may be better or quite as good, not happening to 
have made any such contract, is entirely free, and may grant the 
place asked without an increased charge. 

What we strive to make plain, is that so many things influence 
the price of an advertisement in the very large class of News- 
papers which use a sliding scale of charge, that to promise an 
advertiser in advance exactly what we will do, we are obliged to 
charge enough to cover contingencies. We have sometimes 
procured advertising for $20, which we should not have been 
willing to promise for $50. 

J^^ Thoughtful advertisers who have read the last para- 

^ graph, will perceive that it may be sometimes a cheaper and 

better way to send along an order, and leave the p?'ice to be ar- 

ra?iged aftertaards, instead of tying their agenfs hands by asking 

to be told beforehand exactly what he will do. 

The most prompt and reliable advertising agents we have ever had business dealings with 
during our seven years experience. We have handled considerable advertising through them, 
and never had a dispute on an account, never had a delay of one moment more than is abso- 
lutely necessary to glance over their books. — Daily Herald (Tiffin, Ohio), Nov. 21st, 1884. 

While the rates given by them to publishers may not in some cases be so high as those 
obtained direct from advertisers, their methods are so satisfactory, and their return so sure? 
that their orders are seldom if ever refused. — Freeholder (Cornwall, Ont.), Jan. 7th, 1887. 

They have long had a more thoroughly perfected system, and better facilities for con- 
ducting the necessary negotiations and watching the fulfillment of advertising contracts, than 
has elsewhere ever been attempted. — Daily Post (Houston, Tex.), Jan. 9th, 1887. 

If all Newspapers were in the invariable practice of requiring 
and receiving a uniform rate of compensation for a specified 
amount of advertising, then advertisers would find smaller occa- 
sion to avail themselves of the services of the Advertising Bureau. 



'fc> 



Our Position. 

If an advertiser knew an Advertising Agent, possessed of so 
much knowledge of the value and influence of Newspapers and 
of their advertising rates, as would make him always a competent 



36 GEO. P. HOWELL & GO'S 



adviser ; if he knew him to be honest ; if his every statement 
could be fully relied on ; then the advertiser might have entire 
confidence; and the Agent's position would enable him to procure 
the most effective service for his patron at the lowest obtainable 
price. 

We have undertaken to earn this confidence and to stand in 
this position. 

Several years of business relation with Messrs. Rowell & Co. have led us to see that they 
are very careful in placing advertising for patrons, and as they are so prompt in paying, they 
secure a large patronage from both advertisers and publishers. — Daily Herald (Norristown, 
Pa.) 

Direct the attention of an advertiser toward papers which he should and ought to use, and 
tend to intercept a portion of that patronage which goes to publications which costs greatly in 
excess of any power to benefit which they possess. — Republican (Fargo, Dak.), Jan. 14th, 1887. 

In all our newspaper experiences we have never found an agency so reliable, so well and 
systematically managed, or so prompt as that of Messrs. Rowell & Co. Advertisers who de. 
sire the best service and to reap the most benefit from their investment cannot go wrong by 
applying to this firm. — Democrat and Sentijiel (Lewiston, Pa.), Jan. 14th, 1887. 

We cordially commend this firm to all who are contemplating advertising in a large way. — 
Times (Webster, Mass.), Jan. 14th, 1887. 

When an advertiser applies to us for an estimate, having de- 
cided upon the copy he will use, and every specification as to 
time, display or position, it is our practice to carry out against 
the name of each paper upon his list the price which we recom- 
mend him to offer. 

In fixing the price, judgment is needed. For an advertise- 
ment which would cost $5,000 in the most expensive 'Chicago 
daily, no more than $200 would have to be paid to secure the 
same number of insertions in a leading daily issued at Peoria. 
Often when nearly all the papers in a State are used, the best 
bargains are found to be among those to whom the largest 
sums of money are paid. 

The undoubted truth of this statement sometimes leads ad- 
vertisers into the error of supposing that a Newspaper must be 
valuable because it charges a high price, or that no price can be 
actually too high for a really good paper. 

The most extensive advertiser fails to use all newspapers. 
He must select, therefore, those which are likely to pay him best. 
He knows that some great newspapers of superlative value de- 
mand so much for a yearly advertisement that he cannot ju- 
diciously use their columns except for short time contracts. 
He knows that silver is dear at $20 a pound and gold cheap 
at $200, but if he is offered silver at $5 a pound and finds gold 
held at $500, then he will make his investment in silver rather 
than in gold if he is wise. 



NEWSPAPER ADVERTISING BUREA.U. 37 

How to Secure a Low Price. 

Experience has demonstrated that the best way to secure a 
low price for a stipulated amount of advertising, is to first satisfy 
the pubhsher that he may be certain to receive promptly, 
whatever money is promised ; and then offer him, for the ad- 
vertising, the lowest sum which there is any reasonable ex- 
pectation that he may accept. If this offer is declined, it is 
well to look about to see if any other paper will cover the same 
field nearly as well, and if so, make to that one the same or a 
'lower offer. If declined, the demands of each may then be 
considered and choice made between them, or perhaps a new 
offer may be made to one or both approximating their demand. 
If the field is not a very important one it may be advisable at 
this stage to drop both papers and expend the money elsewhere ; 
where better bargains are to be had. 

If an advertiser is indifferent about particular papers and is 
willing to omit any which will not contract at a low rate, consid- 
ering circulation, position and influence, then lower prices may 
be named than would be advisable if he were specially desirous 
of using all or nearly all the papers on a list. 

Sometimes an advertiser wishes to reach the people of a cer- 
tain State, but is not willing to exceed a certain named sum of 
money. In such a case we sometimes make a nearly complete 
list of all the Newspapers issued in that State, and against each 
affix a price which is very low for the service demanded. It 
is not expected or desired that all will accept, because should 
they do so the limit would be far exceeded. Sometimes 
the price is made so low, that it is not believed that more 
than one-fourth, or one-third will consent to do the work at the 
prices named. Frequently the result is surprising, especially if 
the proposals happen to be forwarded when advertising is slack. 
After all have been heard from, it is customary to review the 
correspondence, in company with the advertiser, or send it to him 
by mail with our comments on the merits of each case ; written 
on the letter from the publisher. Reasonable proposals from 
publishers at important points where the original propositions 
have not been accepted, can then be reconsidered and acted 
upon if desired. 

Estimates of this sort are subject to revision by the adver- 
tiser, who brings to bear upon them any knowledge which his 
experience with his own advertising has given him ; and if we 
3 



38 GEO. P. ROWELL & GO'S 

seem to him to have marked too high a price for any paper, he 
notes the case and the figures are amended. All correspondence 
received by either the advertiser or ourselves, having a bearing 
upon the advertising under consideration, is open to the inspec- 
tion of both parties. 

A Case in Point. 

A Customer's View. Being acquainted with a firm here which was placing a large line of 
advertising with Rowell & Co., I dropped in to ask one of the partners his view of the service 
performed by them. He spoke very kindly of the firm, and said that their experience was all 
that could be desired. " They recently made an estimate for us to place our advertisement in 
a large number of high-priced papers which we had selected. Their estimate footed up 
$16,000. After going carefully over their figures, we asked them if they would accept $i8,oocf 
and guarantee insertions in all the papers specified. They replied. No ! We own no papers, 
and we never sell what we have not bought. We then offered them $20,000 to give us their 
guarantee of the acceptance of the advertisement by all of the papers. They still declmed on 
principle, but assured us that the whole would not cost the sum we were willing to pay. Their 
chief reason was that to promise every paper would make it tolerably certain that some would 
exact and receive a price in excess of their value merely on account of their arbitrary demands. 
We had known from experience that we could not do better any way than to place the order in 
their hands. They sent it out in their own way, and for $14,000 secured rather more than 
seven-eighths of the circulation represented by the list, and brought to us a pile of neatly- 
arranged letters, from all the remaining papers, showing that these could be had for $4,040. 
We looked into the matter, and concluded to reject all of these, for we were convinced that 
the prices, as Rowell's people had told us in the beginning, would be too great for the merits 
of the papers, for our particular use. We can frankly say to you, as we said to Rowell & Co., 
that we feel in declining our offer of $20,000 they saved us fully $3,000." — Moses King's Sketch 
in Bradstreef s (New York City), April 3rd, 1886. 

Circulation Not the Only Element of Value. 

In fixing the value of advertising space in any particular 
journal, the first question to be considered is the number of 
copies issued ; next, the character or quality of the circulation 
A well-printed paper is worth more than one badly printed ; an 
influential journal carries more weight than one without reputa- 
tion. A paper which habitually charges high prices for its adver- 
tising, thereby making its columns exclusive, will have fewer and, 
as a rule, a better class of advertisements, and is worth some- 
thing more on that account. The value in all these considera- 
tions is recognized, but exactly how much each one is to be con- 
sidered becomes a question of judgment. 

They were really the first to reduce advertising to a science, and, notwithstanding the 
fierce competition in that branch of business, they have steadily held their own. — Standard 
(Cortland, N. ¥.), Oct. 14th, 1886. 

With the history of the progress of national advertising upon scientific principles, the 
name of Geo. P. Rowell & Co. will be always inseparably linked. — Daily Journal (Ithaca, 
N. v.), Jan. 22d, 1886. 

What the newspaper requires is security of payment. What the advertiser desires is cer- 
tainty of fidelity to his interests, and assurances that the representations as to character, cir- 
culation, and availability of the mediums which he employs are to be depended upon. No 
agency can have a permanent and profitable existence lacking these elements, Base imitators 
always follow successful ventures, and may appear to succeed for a time, but they are really

ephemeral and evanescent. It is only such institutions as Geo. P. Rowell & Co.'s Agency that 
have continued an unfailing success. — Morning Neivs (Wilmington, Del.), Feb. 5th, 1886. 

They have been long established, they have reduced advertising to a science, and their 
tendency is more and more to recommend to their customers only those papers which are best 
wrorth using. — Phoenix (Brattleboro, Vt.), Jan. 14th, 1887. 

No matter how valuable any Newspaper may be, no adver- 
tiser wants to pay for it any more than the lowest price which can 
be made to secure the service required. If it can be had for $20, 
he will not willingly pay $25, even if he considers it worth $40. It 
is our constant effort to obtain for each of our patrons, ALL 
THE TIME, the very lowest price which a publisher will ever 
consent to receive for the amount of service required. 

Publishers can well afford to give them better terms than other houses, from some of 
whom it is about as much trouble to collect money as it is to earn it. — Blizzard {Oil City, Pa.), 
Nov. 3rd, 1884. 

While some agents have scarcely examined a publisher's bill, or are haggling over it, the 
too common way, Rowell & Co. have paid. This conduct also secures for advertisers lower 
rates, as publisher gives the best rates to those who thus deal with him. — Mail (Atlanta, Ga.), 
May i6th, 1885. 

Their reputation for fairness in dealing and promptness of payment is the best. It is a 
pleasure to do business with such a firm, and there is always a disposition to grant them favors 
in return for the many they show. — Gazette (Kalamazoo, Mich.), Sept. 2nd, 1886. 

All that is required of a publisher is to do his work according to contract. And when 
that is done, bill is rendered and back comes the check. — Chronicle and News (AWentov^n, Pa.) 

Combine the happy faculty so rare among advertising agents of doing their duty by both 
the advertiser and the newspapers. — Daily Republican (Hudson, N. Y.), Jan. 15th, 1887. 

We know that every publisher in this State is glad to receive their favors. — Courier 
(Palmyra, N. Y.), Aug. 22d, 1884. 

Whatever that firm orders you get pay for sure. — Spirit of the South (Rockingham 
N. C), Feb. 5th, 1887. 

Where We Oive Our Best Endeavors. 

Our theory of the business is this : We make our money from 
the advertiser ; it therefore is to him that we owe our best en- 
deavors. The commission which publishers allow is always a 
sufficient profit, often more than we ought to make ; and in some 
cases we waive the greater part of it for the purpose of securing 
a paper without asking the advertiser to increase his price ; but 
we never obligate ourselves to insert an advertisement in a 
paper which shall demand a gross price so much m excess of the 
amount which we are to receive as to subject us to an actual net 
loss. 

The advertiser who in placing large contracts for advertising, 
avails himself of our services, does not lose the personal control 
of his expenditure. He is not in our hands, but in his own. His 
advertisement goes into no paper except at a price which he and 
we consider a low or a fair one. We are both interested that no 



40 GEO. P. ROVVELL & GO'S 

publisher shall compel a payment above the value of his circula- 
tion and influence. He is interested to buy cheap so as to have 
money left to buy more or hold in reserve, and we, that the cost 
to hmi shall be -moderate so that results shall show him a profit 
and induce further transactions. 

The advertiser knows as well how much the advertisement is 
to cost, before he authorizes it to be done, as he would if doing 
the business himself direct with the publishers. He knows 
what each paper will cost if it accepts the work at the price 
offered, and that no increased price will be charged to him until 
he has authorized it after the reasons for paying an increased 
price have been brought to his notice and he has decided that 
they are good. 

Although we are remunerated for our services by a commis- 
sion or reduction allowed by the publisher at the time of settle- 
ment with the Newspaper, yet we recognize the fact that our 
profit actually comes from the advertiser (it is a part of the 
money which the advertiser pays, which remains with us as a 
commission or profit) ; without the advertiser we could make no 
profit ; it is to the advertiser that we owe service. We work 
therefore for the advertiser and with the advertiser, and that we 
may do this to best advantage, it becomes advisable that we con- 
centrate our efforts as far as possible upon the transaction in 
good faith of the business of those advertisers who put patronage 
most fully into our hands and most fully trust to us for faithful 
service. So long as these patrons are pleased with our methods 
of business, their patronage remains and their commendations 
influence others. 

As there is one brand of flour more choice than any other, and one brand of coffee purer 
than others, so there is one agency whose business we find greater pleasure in accepting. Geo. 
P. Rowell & Co., experience has taught us, lead the van of advertising agencies in every 
desirable respect. — Daily Times (Glens Falls, N. ¥.), Aug. 27th, 1886. 

Does business in a fair, square way, performs what it promises and lives up to the very 
letter of the contracts, both with the advertiser and the newspaper publisher. Hence the con- 
fidence reposed in it both by the newspaper press and general public is not surprising. — 
Daily Herald (Steubenville, O.J, Jan. 22d, 1886. 

The Misleadifig Effect of {so-called) Co7?ipeting Estimates. 

Our method of business is incompatible with the system of 
competing estimates for advertising contracts. The prices which 
we name, are prices at which we will try to get the advertising 
done. If we set down $50 as a price at which an advertisement 
ought to be secured, and a competing agent guesses he can do 
it for $40, it may be a temptation to the advertiser to allow him 



NEWSPAPER ADVERTISING BUREAU. 41 

to try, but when the pubHsher sends back the order and demands 
$75, the advertiser can never be quite certain that we would not 
have secured the service for the $50 we had named in the 
beginning. 

In their method of auditing and settling accounts they could hardly improve, for we are 
always ready to believe that in five days after presenting the account we can rely upon a 
check. We feel assured that their relations with advertisers are equally as gratifying. — JVest- 
erti Mercury (Atchison, Kan.), Dec. 14th, 1884.. 

Correct and systematic in thsir business, and ever prompt in the satisfactory fulfillment of 
their contracts. They are made the medium through which a large number of the best adver- 
tisers in the country reach the public eye. — Daily Courier (Rome, Ga.), Aug. 29th, 1886. 

We do not personally own or control any of the Newspapers 
for which we assume to contract. We therefore make the fol- 
lowing sentence a head-line upon each " Estimate " issued from 
our office : 

"THIS ESTIMATE 
DOES NOT GUARANTEE THAT THE PUBLISHERS OF THE PERIODICALS 
NAMED UPON IT WILL ACCEPT THE ADVERTISINC AT THE PRICES NAMED." 

The above is an admission upon our part that we cannot 
always tell exactly what a publisher of a Newspaper will or will 
not do ; and this we are the more free to admit because we know 
that our position in the business of Newspaper Advertising, taken 
in connection with the patronage which we control, enables us to 
have a better knowledge upon the subject than is possessed by 
any other person whomsoever. 

Promptness : 

Promptness in the execution of advertising orders is desirable 
to the advertiser. 

We invite those who have been annoyed with vexatious delays 
in the placing of advertising contracts, to examine and make 
themselves familiar with our facilities. 

For promptness and reliability are in the front rank. They are systematic and correct in 
all their transactions.— CAr(7«z<:/^ (Augusta, Ga.), Sept. 8th, 1886. 

W^hen it comes to promptness in business transactions, the advertising agency of Geo. P. 
Rowell & Co., New York, can't be beat. And we are sure that all who deal fairly with them 
will find them awake and square on all sides. As a successful advertising agency Rowell & 
Co. are entitled to the confidence of business men. — Messenger (St. Albans, Vt.), Jan. 21st, 
1886. 

The most prompt and reliable as advertising agents that we have had dealings with. — 
American (Sunbury, Pa.), Dec. 12th, 1884. 

The most punctual advertising agents in New York City is the firm of Geo. P. Rowell & 
Co. — Atnerican (Sunbury, Pa.), Dec. 7th, 1883. 

They are the most prompt of any business men we have dealt with. — Daily British Whig 
(Kingston, Ont.), Dec. 15th, 1884. 

They are the promptest advertisers we have. — Times (Trenton, N. J.), Dec. 15th, 1884. 

For promptness you take the cake. — Blizzard (Oil City, Pa.). 



42 GEO. P. ROWELL & GO'S 



Publishers of Newspapers want advertisements. They under- 
stand our methods, and that promptness and the exhibition on 
their part of a desire to trade facilitates transactions. 

Our advertising patrons are of the best class of business 
men. They are entitled to have their work done every time and 
all the time at the very lowest price which is ever accorded to 
the most favored customer. We ask no more than this for any 
of them, and for none are we willing to accept anything less. 

In a majority of Newspapers we secure the insertion of adver- 
tisements at lower rates than would be accepted from others, be- 
cause publishers know that our offers are at all times based upon 
comparative values, and that our contracts are only awarded 
where a fair price is accepted. They also know that their bills 
will be paid in cash, and promptly. 

We always know where we can " raise the wind " at short notice when we "get hard up," 
if they owe us anything. We can name other good agencies, but Rowell's heads the list. — 
Hera/d (Winsted, Ct.), Dec. 19th, 1884. 

We never had a disputed account. Thej"^ are unequaled in these respects. — Standard 
Bridgeport, Ct.), Dec. 12th, 1884. 

We have been advertising for this company ever since in business, and when we send a 
bill, a check for the amount comes back on the next train. — Banner Watchman (Athens, 
Ga.), Dec. 25th, 1884. 

Honorable, courteous, asking only fair treatment and paying their bills promptly, we are 
happy to say that the firm of Rowell & Co. shine out as an example of what the advertising 
agency ought to be. — Gazette (Yonkers, N. Y.). 

Is the most prompt business house doing business with this paper. They should stand the 
world over at the head of all advertising agencies. — Daily Democrat (Shelbyville, Ind.), June 
22nd, 1885. 

Special merit is worthy special mention, and it is due Geo. P. Rowell & Co., of 10 Spruce 
Street, New York City, to say that their reputation for fairness in dealmg and promptness of 
payment is the best. — Times (Owosso, Mich.), Sept. loth, 1886. 

The uncommonly prompt way in which Gee. P. Rowell & Co., advertising agents, conduct 
their business, especially in the payment of bills, is often mentioned by the press of the coun- 
try. — Home Jourjial (New York City), Nov. 3rd, 1886. 

They are promptness personified, and are square and liberal in all dealings. — Morning 
Herald (Titusville, Pa.), Aug. 9th, 1884. 

We have yet to ask them the second time for money. — Ishmaelite (Sparta, Ga,), Jan. 
3rd, 1883. 

They pay promptly anything they agree to. Messrs. Rowell & Co. are the leading adver- 
tising agents of the country. The firm is popular with all advertisers and newspapers. The 
Times has had more or less business with this firm during the past sixteen years, and it 
gives us pleasure to refer to the satisfactory manner in which they have observed all con- 
tracts with us. Their business methods are the admiration of ail newspaper publishers, for the 
firm is not over-exacting, and are especially prompt in paying all claims. In fact, they make 
it a feature of their business to pay all bills that are correct the same day they are received. — 
Times (Port Hope, Ont.), Jan. 14th, 1886. 

When an advertisement is intended for only the highest 
priced papers, from which no reduction from rates is to be ex- 
pected or hoped for, there is of course no delay about the inser-

tion : and so too when, as is sometimes the case, an advertiser 
prefers to pay full prices for a line of advertising in papers of 
only moderate standing for the sake of obtaining the utmost 
good will of the publisher. 

Pay7tients. • 

When we have arranged for the insertion of an advertisement 
in any Newspaper, we undertake that the advertiser shall be 
required to accept and pay for only such insertions as are ren- 
dered in accordance with the specifications of his contract, and 
that omissions or incorrect insertions (should any occur) shall be 
made good by additional insertions. 

Prompt settlement has in no way prevented a very close inspection of every item, the 
interests of the advertisers have been carefully watched. — Home Journal (New York), Oct. 
31st. 1883. 

There is something really delightful to the heart of a newspaper man in the promptness 
with which Messrs. Geo. P. Rowell & Co., of 10 Spruce street, New York City, respond to 
bills for advertising. — Press (Lexington, Ky.), March 30th, 1884. 

The marking on the bills show that this prompt settlement has in no way prevented a 
very close inspection of every item, and that the interest of their patrons have been carefully 
watched. — Norristo-wn (Pa.), Herald^ Oct. 6th, 1883. 

If all advertising agents were as fair in their dealings with newspapers as this firm is, a 
good many country editors would be happier men and better Christians. — Transcript (Middle- 
town, Del.), Nov. i6th, 1883. 

How We Want Our Pay. 

In the absence of any agreement about payments, all bills 
for advertising done by us, which will expire within a month, 
are to be paid for in cash at the time the order is booked, unless 
from regular customers, to whom bills are rendered in accord- 
ance with established usage. 

Payment for all advertising extending through more than one 
month is due monthly, dating from the day the order is received, 
unless different terms have been specially agreed upon. Omis- 
sions, wrong insertions and other deficiencies to be made good 
at end of contract, at time of final settlement. 

They have long had a more thoroughly perfected system, and better facilities for conduct- 
ing the necessary negotiations and watching the fulfillment of advertising contracts, than has 
elsewhere ever been attempted. — Press (Portland, Maine), Jan. 13th, 1887. 

Reasonable in every way. Prompt, exact and courteous. It is a pleasure to do business 
with them. — Daily British /F^z^ (Kingston, Ont.), Jan. 12th, 1886. 

Thorough going, careful and enterprising. — Herald (Grand Haven, Mich.), Jan. 22nd, 
1886. 

Publishers Who Allow the Ageiifs Commission to Advertisers. 

Advertisers sometimes inquire whether, if dealing direct with 
the publishers of Newspapers, they would not be able to obtain 



44 GEO. P. ROWELL & GO'S 

the same allowance or commission upon which we rely to pay us 
for the work we do. Our observation teaches us that if the 
amount of their patronage is large they will generally be able to 
obtain a concession from rates. Nearly every publisher of a 
newspaper, in fact almost any man of business, likes to come in 
direct contact with his customer, and holds out inducements to 
that end, but the real object is pretty universally the attainment 
of a larger percentage of profit, a higher net price ; and it has 
been the result of our experience and investigations that the 
most honorable publishers make no pretence of allowing an 
" agent's " commission to an advertiser doing his own business, 
and that those who are willing to make such a concession gener- 
ally realize a better price than they would expect if the order 
came through our hands. 

In all our newspaper experience we have never found an Agency so reliable, so well and 
systematically managed, or so prompt as that of Messrs. Geo. P. Rowell & Co. — Daily Tirnes 
(Lebanon, Penn.), Jan. 21st, 1887. 

The oldest and best-known house in this line. — Truth (Toronto, Ont.), Jan. 8th, 1887. 

Whatever that firm orders you get pay for sure. — Spi7-it of the South (Rockingham, 
C.), Feb. 5th, 1887. 

The firm has always been popular with publishers because of their prompt and reliable 
financial record. — Mirror Journal (Marlboro', Mass.), Jan. 23rd, 1886. 

It is a pleasure to do business with such a firm, and we hope it may live long and prosper. 
— Index (Dover, N. J.), July 2nd, 1885. 

No house in the world we are more proud of doing business with. — Journal and Courier 
(New Haven, Ct.) 

Should stand the world over at the head of advertising agencies. — Democrat (Shelbyville, 
Ind.) 

The only perfect agency we know of. — Republican (Cedar Rapids, Iowa). 

The only agency that I never have trouble with. — Spectator (Franklin, Pa.). 

The conclusion we arrive at is that the advertisers who have 
small orders, amounting to a few dollars in each paper (although 
footing up hundreds in the aggregate), cannot obtain any mate- 
rial concession from first-class Newspapers, and that those adver- 
tisers who have large advertisements, amounting to considerable 
sums in individual publications, are apt to learn that where they 
obtain the concession of the agent's commission, WE are able 
to secure a still lower net price for them, and generally retain 
our commission intact. For instance, a paper charging $ioo 
for a specified advertisement, might gladly allow a concession, 
called an agent's commission, of $25, getting a net price of $75, 
while we should not think of recommending our customer to pay 
the particular paper in question more than $40, and from that 
sum should expect from the publisher the usual allowance for 
our commission. 



NEWSPAPER ADVERTISING BUREAU. 45 



This is a subject upon which an advertiser soon comes to 
have a decided opinion, and it is something in favor of the sound- 
ness of our conclusions, that so many who make a point of get- 
ting best service at smallest cost, deal largely with us. 

Our business acquaintance of over ten years with the firm of Geo. P. Rowell & Co., of 
New York, has been one of pleasure and profit to us. No after-claps, nothing to make right, 
but everything right at beginning and closing of all contracts. We are confident from the 
manner the firm conducts its business, that we only voice the sentiments of thousands of 
papers when we say a more prompt or reliable firm does not exist in America. The only fault 
we have with them is that we are not permitted to do more advertising with them. — Phoenix 
(Parker, Pa.), Jan. 27th, 1883. 

They represent the best daily and other newspapers of all American cities ; the leading 
and most influential religious, agricultural and other newspapers published in the interests of 
the many and various classes, trades, sects or interests, and also such county journals of local 
influence as have peculiar merit which makes them of value to a class of advertisers.^ — Daily 
Journal (Biddeford, Me.) 

One of the best works ever issued by an advertising agency, if not the best, is Newspaper 
Advertising, a list of leading papers, issued by Geo. P. Rowell & Co. — Farmers' Call 
(Quincy, 111.), Jan. 13th, 1887. 

Our Strongest Point. 

The real strength of the Advertising Bureau lies in its ability 
to obtain the greatest concession from publishers' rates. 

To know what Newspapers must have $ioo for a one-hundred- 
dollar advertisement, and what ones will take the same for $50, 
or $30, IS the most useful and profitable portion of the stock in 
trade of the successful Advertising Agency. 

We have been dealing with Messrs. Rowell & Co. for twenty years, and while they insist 
upon very low rates, they also insist upon remitting the cash by the first mail after bill is ren- 
dered. — Clarion (Jackson, Miss.), Sept. ist, 1886. 

They are deserving the confidence and patronage of the public, and this they enjoy to a 
very large extent.— ^(??/r««/ (Dayton, Ohio), Sept. 4th, 1886. 

Does business in a fair, square way. Stands high in the estimation of the business com- 
munity. — Courier (Lansingburgh, N. Y.), Feb. 6th, 1886.

Is perhaps the most popular of all agencies. — Tribune (Bismarck, Dak.), Jan. 7th, 1887. 

We repeat: "We are the Agents of the Advertiser." We do 
the best we can for him, and we want from the publisher the 
lowest price all the time. We give the advertiser the advantage 
of any knowledge which we possess ; quote prices, which are 
often too low ; procure acceptance of these low rates when 
possible, even at the expense of waiving a proportion, or in rare 
instances, the whole of our commission. 

We are the Agents of the newspapers to the extent of always 
keeping open an office for the reception of advertising orders

for them, quoting their rates, and bringing to the notice of ad- 
vertisers the pecuhar merit which each paper may possess. We 
are also the Agents for the Newspapers to the additional extent 
of a guaranty ; and so promptly do we redeem that guaranty, an 
account against our house is everywhere considered equivalent 
to cash. WE SECURE THE CHEAPEST CONTRACTS 
THAT ARE MADE. 

When it comes to promptness in business transactions, the advertising agency of Geo. P. 
Rowell & Co., New York, can't be beat. — Messenger (St. Albans, Vt.), Jan. 21st, 1886. 

The Rowell Agency, which is really the father of the system of scientific advertising, has

We like to see business done in business style, and, therefore, indorse the advertising 
agency of Geo. P. Rowell & Co. — Daily Bulletin (Cairo, 111.), March 6th, 1885. 

Whenever we do advertising for any one, we consider him 
entitled to our best services. If he suggests using a paper which 
we know to be not the best for his purpose, we say so and give 
our reasons. 

Those who entrust their advertising patronage to our care 
know that we make a living profit from its transaction, and have 
no interest except to serve them well. If we secure two papers 
for a price which would not be high for one of similar value, our 
percentage is as large, while the lik'elihood of. the arrangement 
proving profitable to the advertiser, is doubled. The more ser- 
vice we secure our customer for the money expended, the greater 
the likelihood of profit to him and continued patronage for 
ourselves.

Most Complete and Extensive File of Neivspapers

We have a system of filing Newspapers, that is, of preserving 
them for future convenient reference by an arrangement of shelv- 
ing and partitions ; a separate space being accorded to each, 
labeled with the printed name of the paper it is intended to 
accommodate ; by means of this arrangement a stranger finds a 
paper he wishes to examine, with something of the readiness that 
he would a word in a dictionary.

Notwithstanding this complete arrangement for the adver-

clerks whose business it is to aid him. 

We receive more than one hundred and fifty thousand News- 
papers every three months, more than two thousand every day. 
They come from every quarter. They are heaped upon tables, 
the wrappers removed, the papers smoothed, folded and arranged 
by States, after which the various piles are passed over to those 
who have in charge the business of examining each separate 
paper to make sure that advertisements ordered from the Bureau 
are inserted according to specifications of contract.

The country is divided into sections and apportioned. One 
person' attends only to papers issued in the City of New York ; 
another checks those in the State ; one has Canada, one the 
Territories, the Pacific Coast, and so on. 

Every paper in which an advertisement is running is spread 
open, and the advertisement (one or more) marked with a crayon 
so as to be easily found or seen at a glance when the advertiser 
comes to make his examination. 

Checking Cards. 

The checking cards are arranged to show the actual number 
of insertions which every advertisement is to receive. Special 
marks are used to designate special things, and the checking 
clerk, guided by instructions, produces a page which will show 
the advertiser whether his insertions have been truly and cor- 
rectly given, or otherwise. 

The name of the advertiser, the space, position, style and 
length of time an advertisement must appear, are all indicated. 
The various marks have their special meanings — all easily under- 
stood, and not readily mistaken. 

If a paper fails to come to hand, the checking card reveals 
the fact, and the missing copy is sent for. 

If an advertisement is out of position, if typographical errors 
are observed in it, or if for any reason it is not what the adver- 



48 GEO. P. ROWELL & CO'S 

tiser is entitled to expect, a notice of the fact is dispatched to the 
publisher. 

The checking cards are kept permanently for inspection by 
advertisers. The papers themselves are retained but three 
months from date of issue ; after that time the Bureau does not 
guarantee to exhibit them. 

After the examination and marking, the paper is again folded, 
and receives a heavy mark on its upper right hand corner to 
indicate that it has passed through the requisite examination. 
It is then placed in the space (pigeon-hole) accorded to it. 

The Newspaper Room. 

These pigeon-holes, placed in tiers or cases, form galleries, 
the whole being systematically arranged alphabetically by States, 
the name of the State being designated on the cases and again 
over the entrance to each separate gallery. 

An advertiser whose rule is to pay no bills until he sees all 
the papers, can here be accommodated. An advertising contract 
amounting to one hundred thousand dollars per annum can be 
looked after (every copy of every paper examined) by the adver- 
tiser, who will devote three days' time to the examination four 
times a year. 

The time usually required for examining papers is mainly 
used in looking after the advertisement which is not there. 
This work has all been gone over beforehand by the checking 
clerk, and each advertisement marked plainly with a black crayon. 
If it is sd marked, the advertiser takes in its appearance, style, 
position, everything in an instant, and if it is not marked he need 
go no further ; it is not there ! 

One material advantage of complete files, so conveniently 
arranged, is the facility with which it is possible to produce for 
an advertiser samples of all the papers in which he may wish to 
insert his announcement ; that he may see for himself what every 
paper looks like, and judge what style of advertising will be 
most effective. 

Marked Newspapers for Advertisers. 

In addition to the thorough arrangement for proving inser- 
tion of advertisements, it is the custom of the Bureau to request 
every publisher who inserts an advertisement on its order, to 
send to the advertiser a marked copy of the first issue in which a 
new advertisement appears. Most publishers comply with this 



NEWSPAPER ADVERTISING BUREAU. 49 

demand and some make a practice of sending a paper regularly 
to an advertiser while his advertisement appears, whether re- 
quested to do so or not. 

The statement concerning marked papers sent to advertisers 
does not apply when an advertisement is inserted in combina- 
tions of papers at a lump price for the whole, as in the case of 
Geo. P. Rowell & Co.'s SELECT LIST OF LOCAL PAPERS, 
for which advertising rates are given by the inch of space, to be 
inserted by the month in all the newspapers there catalogued in 
a State or section of country, for although the advertiser is likely 
to receive a considerable number of these papers, our contract 
gives us no actual right to demand that any shall be sent. So 
also with the Lists of Newspapers issued on what is known as 
the Co-operative plan. Of these, one paper only from each 
separate list, is all that is ever mailed to the advertiser. 

In the case of the Select Local List, WE receive and place 
on file all the papers, and examine each one separately to note 
that the first issue of each advertisement ordered by us is exactly 
as it ought to be. 

In the case of the Village Papers (the so-called Co-operative 
Lists), we only examine one of the papers issued by each of the 
several Unions, for with them, if the advertisement is seen in one 
it must appear in all from the nature of the method by which 
they are printed. 

Recapitulation. 

We are in frequent communication with Newspapers through- 
out the country, and the largest patrons of a great number of 
them. An Agency covering so wide a field, having so large and 
so general a business, with an established reputation and un- 
doubted credit in every quarter, has the best claims for the best 
terms from publishers, and is dealt with on a higher plane, and 
on more liberal terms than could reasonably be asked for, or 
expected, by parties having but few patrons and a limited 
patronage. 

The " ESTIMATE " prices are what we recommend the ad- 
vertiser to authorize us to pay ; and the advertiser is at liberty to 
cut down any which are higher than he is willing to pay for 
the paper in question ; or than he would be obliged to pay if 
he placed the order elsewhere. 

The advertiser is at liberty, at any stage of the negotiation, 
to erase from his list any paper which he does not desire to use 



50 GEO. P. ROWELL, & GO'S 

at the price named. When these facts are considered, it appears 
that there exists no very good reason for inviting competition. 
The chances are in cases where competition is invited, and the 
contract awarded where lowest figures are given, that the result 
does not satisfy the advertiser in point of net cost, as ascer- 
tained when the advertising has actually been done and paid 
for. If \)[i^ price is satisfactory the chances are that the appear- 
ance of the advertisement as printed in the papers is not so. It 
is sometimes possible to make an advertisement technically in 
accordance with a careful specification and still be poor and 
unsatisfactory. 

It is the practice of some advertisers, not only to place their 
business in the hands of an Agent, but to undertake, at the same 
time, to attend to it themselves also. 

They furnish the Advertising Bureau with the names of the 
Newspapers in which they wish an advertisement inserted, and 
simultaneously address the publishers of the papers for the pur- 
pose of obtaining quotations direct from them. 

The estimate in due time arrives from the Advertising 
Bureau, and is found to be lower than the prices which the pub- 
lishers demand ; or at least is so in most cases ; so the advertiser 
determines to send his order to the Agent. 

The Agent now sends out the advertising order ; and the 
publisher receiving it remembers that he has already quoted a 
price for that particular advertisement ; and that not only has he 
named to the advertiser a higher price, but he also remembers 
that if the order had come to him from the advertiser without 
the interposition of the Advertising Agent, that there would be 
no deduction to be made for an Agent's commission. The pub- 
lisher is human, and would naturally prefer to receive a larger 
price, and have it net. 

It is known that the Advertising Agent receives a commission 
from the publisher for his services in procuring, forwarding and 
guaranteeing the payment for advertising patronage ; but it must 
be plain to any one who gives the matter thought, that the pub- 
lisher will not thank the Agent for intercepting business which 
would be sure to reach him ; and not only lower the price, but 
insist upon a further reduction in the shape of a commission for 
the service he claims to have performed. 

It is the business of an Advertising Agent to create new 
business ; to induce new men to advertise, to induce those who 
are advertising a little to advertise more. 



NEWSPAPER ADVERTISING BUREAU. 51 

We have been in business more than twenty years, and have 
customers who have dealt with us through nearly the whole of 
that time ; yet the only customers whom we have ever had, who 
have seemed to be pleased with us and to appreciate what we 
could do for them, have been those who placed themselves in our 
hands, and trusted us, because they believed that we could and 
would serve them advantageously. 

For those advertisers who have a credit so well established as 
to make them safe customers, we secure the most important 
advantages. We can devote our energies to securing what is 
wanted, without constantly contemplating a possible loss liable 
to sweep away, not only all commissions earned, but, in addition, 
leave us responsible for heavy obligations to publishers. 

We seek the patronage of Responsible Advertisers who will 
pay when the work is done, and of Experienced Advertisers who 
will know when they are faithfully and intelligently served. 

While advertising is sent out through our Newspaper Adver- 
tising Bureau, we are pleased to furnish postal cards which may 
be addressed to those publishers who apply for patronage, stating 
that the work is done by us and referring them to us. If so 
instructed we investigate the merits of all proposals made, and 
specially direct attention to such as have any peculiar merit. 
We supply these postal cards to several of our patrons who have 
the practice of answering all letters addressed to them. They 
find them a convenience, and the cards are worth the cost, to us, 
as an advertisement of our business. 

We have a conspicuous card which some of our patrons find 
to be a convenience ; to which they refer solicitors of advertise- 
ments with whom they have not the time to talk, referring all 
such to our house. These cards have a tendency to divert some 
visitors to whom the advertiser has not the requisite time to 
attend, and we bring their proposals to notice whenever they 
have unusual merit, which is not always the case. This card is 
sent to any patron of ours whenever a desire to that effect is 
expressed. 

We like to have our patrons make a practice of throwing into 
a drawer or pigeon-hole all the communications and proposals 
they receive on the subject of advertising, and from time to time 
send the same to us by mail or otherwise. We sometimes find 
valuable suggestions and information among papers and letters 
of this sort, which would not otherwise have been so directly 
brought to our notice, and we make the suggestion more freely, 



53 GEO P. ROWELL & CO'S 

as such communications constitute a class of correspondence 
with which busmess men in general do not care to encumber 
their files. 

NATURAL MISTAKES MADE BY SOME ADVERTISERS. 

One who understands the business, and does not mind the 
detail work necessary in making negotiations, attending to the 
correspondence, paying small bills by the dozen or hundred; 
who has always done his own advertising and always intends to 
do so; likes to get our estimates of cost, once in awhile, in order 
to compare them with what he is himself paying; and to use 
them as a lever to force some publishers down in price ; is led to 
think that we like to copy off long lists of papers and spend 
hours in making columns of figures for his instruction, although 
no possible profit to ourselves can result. 

Another: just starting out on an advertising campaign; and 
for reasons of his own intending to place all the contracts him- 
self; but having little knowledge of newspaper values; likes to 
get our estimates as a sort of guide. Perhaps he intends send- 
ing his agents through a section of country to sell goods which 
he will promise to advertise in the local papers. He don't know 
exactly where his agents will go, or in how many papers he will 
advertise, but likes to have us carefully prepare a table for all 
the papers in a State showing what will be a fair price for him to 
pay to each. It serves as a guide for his agent, and as such is 
valuable. He has no intention of entrusting the business to our 
management when he applies for the estimate : and no intention 
of paying us for our services when the estimate has been made. 
He thinks that it will gratify us to have an opportunity to make 
figures for him, and he is a kindly man and willing to gratify us 
to that extent. 

A third, a good and kind man, knows a struggling advertis- 
ing broker to whom he would willingly do a favor, if it cost him 
nothing, decides to ask us to furnish an estimate for a proposed 
line of advertising: intending, when he has secured the estimate, 
to pass it over to his protege, to aid him in arriving at proper 
figures to pay. He imagines that he is giving us actual pleasure 
in permitting us to prepare the framework of his advertising 
structure, out of our own material and at our own expense. 

A fourth man has no thought of advertising at all, but is 
curiously interested to know what would be the cost of a certain 
amount of publicity if he should, at some future time, happen to 



NEWSPAPER ADVERTISING BUREAU. 53 



want it: thinks that we would, as soon as not, devote a day or 
two of the time of a competent estimate clerk to the business of 
satisfying his thirst for knowledge. 

Still another man knows the names and address of half a 
dozen Advertising Agencies and believes them to be all alike, 
and that advertising space can be described with mathematical 
precision and delivered with as much certainty as sugar or flour, 
and that he may obtain estimates from all and find his profit in 
awarding the order to the lowest bidder: — or may divide it, count- 
ing off to each those papers which he guesses he can obtain at a 
lower rate than another agent guesses that he would have to pay. 

The extensive advertising of our own business, which it 
is our policy to keep up, brings us into contact with all of these 
and kindred classes, and sometimes we are led into devoting a 
good deal of attention to the applications from some such, treat- 
ing their applications in good faith and devoting to them an 
amount of time which costs a considerable sum in dollars and 
cents, and cannot be counted on to bring any return. 

Our office is intended more for the accommodation of those 
who want our services than it is for those who don't; and we 
work more cheerfully and carefully for those who actually wish 
to avail themselves of our facilities than we do for those who 
do7it know whether they do or not. 

It is an every-day occurrence in our office that the labor of 
giving an advertisement all the attention it ought to have is 
greater than the profit on that particular order can possibly be 
expected to pay for : but for a patron such work is under- 
taken cheerfully, while from an experimenter, whom we do not 
know, and who may be a mere idle inquirer, we would be most 
likely to decline the employment. 

Our regular customers know us ! and we know them! 
but new applicants, who seem to belong to the above classes, 
sometimes fail to receive from us the considerate and pains- 
taking attention which they are led to expect, and which the 
apparent consequence of the work they have in mind would 
really entitle them to receive if the application has really been 
made in good faith. 

An applicant who applies to us in good faith, knowing 
us to be competent to serve, believing that we will attempt 
to do no work without a profit sufficient to pay for having it 
done well, but that we do not overcharge customers and 7nay be 
safely trusted, makes no mistake when he states in his application 
4 



54 GEO. P. ROWELL & CO'S 



that he actually means business and applies to us because he 
wishes to deal with us. 



New York, May 2nd, 1887. 




A CRITICISM of the foregoing 
pages, from a Publisher's stand- 
point, and a Remedy for exist- 
ing evils; pointed out by Pub- 
lishers of wide experience. 



It must not be supposed that we are unaware that the fore- 
going pages are open to criticism from the standpoint of a 
publisher who has a variable schedule of Advertising rates, and 
has not given much thought to the circumstances which have 
caused the Advertising Agency to occupy a somewhat anomo- 
lous position. For the purpose of bringing the subject so plainly 
before newspaper men that it cannot fail to be fully understood 
by them, we recapitulate some of the points to which a Pub- 
lisher w^ho has no uniform rate of charge is likely to take excep- 
tions. 

We do this freely and unhesitatingly, because the objections 
are more apparent than real, and because we believe that busi- 
ness should be conducted in good faith — stripped of everything 
like false pretenses. 

We have asserted. 

" It is to the Advertiser that we owe service. 

" We are the agents of the Advertiser. 

" We make our money from the Advertiser. 

"Without the Advertiser we could make no profit. 

" We do the best we can for him. 

" We work with the Advertiser and for the Advertiser. 

" We want from the publisher the lowest prices all the time. 

" The real strength of the Advertising Bureau lies in its ability to obtain the greatest con- 
cessions from Publishers' rates. To know what newspapers must have $100 for a $100 adver- 
tisement, and what ones will take it for $50 or $30, is the most useful and profitable portion of 
the stock in trade of the successful Advertising Agent. 

" It is our constant effort to obtain for each of our patrons, all the time, the very lowest 
prices which a publisher will ever consent to receive for the amount of service required. 



NEWSPAPER ADVERTISING BUREAU. 55 

" No matter how valuable a newspaper may be, no advertiser wants to pay for it any more 
than the lowest price which will be accepted for the desired advertisement. 

" If it can be had for $20, he will not willingly pay $25 even though he consider it worth 
$40. 

" If we secure two papers for a price which would not be dear for either, our percentage is 
as large, while the probability of the arrangement proving profitable to the advertiser is 
doubled : the more service we secure for our customer for his outlay the greater is the likeli- 
hood of continued patronage from him. 

" We give the advertiser the advantage of any knowledge which we possess : quote prices 
which are often too low ; and procure the acceptance of these low rates when possible. 

" Sometimes the price is made so low that it is not believed that more than one quarter or 
a third of the papers will do the work at the prices named. 

" These prices are what we recotnrnendxht. advertiser to authorise us to pay : but he is at 
liberty to cut down any which are above the limit he has in his mind for the paper in question, 

" Publishers of newspapers want advertisements and understand our methods, and that 
prompt replies and an exhibition on their part of a desire to trade facilitates transactions. 

" If the offer is declined, the same or a lower offer is forwarded to another paper, if there 
is one which will cover the field quite or nearly as well, or, if the field is not an important one, 
it may, at this stage, be thought better to expend the money elsewhere if more favorable rates 
are offered. 

"Sometimes when half or a quarter of all the papers in a State are desired, it is found 
advisable to offer the advertisement, at a price ^ to all or nearly all which are issued. 

" It is not expected or desired that all will accept, for should they do so the advertiser's 
limit would be exceeded. 

" When all have been heard from, it is customary to review the correspondence, in com- 
pany with the advertiser, or send it to him by mail, with our comments written on each letter 
from a publisher, and from the most attractive of these, those which name a reasonable price, 
and set forth reasons to show that they are worth what they demand, the advertiser chooses 
such as he believes are needed to cover the selected field ; and all other offers are withdrawn 
or cancelled. 

" Our patrons are of the best class of business men, and are entitled to have their work 
done at the very lowest price which is ever accorded to anybody. 

" Although we are remunerated for our services by a commission, allowed us by the pub- 
lisher, yet our profit actually comes from the advertiser." 

Some time during the year 1886 we forwarded to American 
Publishers a pamphlet not very different in its tenor from the 
article now under consideration. 

It attracted attention in many quarters, and Mr. J- R- Bettis, 
of the Little Rock Arkansas Democrat^ wrote a lengthy criticism 
upon the positions taken by us ; pointing out with conspicuous 
clearness much which we have said above. 

We will quote nearly all of the points made by Mr. Bettis, 
using mainly his own words, though with changes in the position 
of sentences, and omitting portions not suitable for our purpose. 
We believe that Mr. Bettis will admit that we have taken no un- 
warranted liberties with his statements or conclusions. 

He says, referring to the pamphlet in question, that there are 
several pages devoted to pointing out all the weak places in the 



56 GEO. P. ROWELL & CO'S 

Publisher's defences, and how to take him at the greatest disad- 
vantage. 

That these inexhaustible pages are teeming with instructive 
points and hints for newspaper men. 

That there is nothing underhanded about them, and while 
there is much that would make a denominational newspaper ab- 
jurgate, there are many cold-blooded truths which it would be 
well to have read by Publishers, and applied by them. 

That Messrs. Geo. P. Rowell & Co. speak not only for them- 
selves, but for the majority of Advertising Agents. 

That through their control of a large patronage, they occupy 
an impregnable position. That they have grounds for such a 
position is nowhere more plainly shown than in the hundreds of 
pages of Newspaper Advertisements in their American News- 
paper Directory. 

Mr. Bettis, in a calm and unimpassioned way, paints the pic- 
ture of a publisher newly started in business, placing himself in 
connection with the Advertising Bureau, and thinking he has 
secured a trusty representative at a good point, but who, after a 
while, finds out from actual experience, that this agent is the 
" greatest bear on Advertising prices that he has to contend 
with." 

He enumerates many of our claims : among others, that 

We spare no labor or expense in the service of the Advertiser. 

We make his interests our own. 

Our services are due and rendered to the Advertiser. 

The Advertiser's interests are the only ones we have at heart. 

That we guarantee satisfaction to the Advertiser. 

Consider him entitled to our best services. 

Do the best we can for the Advertiser and want from the publisher the lowest price — 
all the time. 

Give the Advertiser the advantage of any knowledge which we possess. 

Work WITH the Advertiser and for the Advertiser — precisely as the Advertiser would 
do his own business did he possess our facilities. 

That our real strength lies in our ability to obtain the greatest concessions from pub- 
lishers' rates. 

And from all this Mr. Bettis concludes that we 

"Are in fact the Advertiser's Agents," 

and proceeds to comment upon our assertion that 



NEWSPAPER ADVERTISING BUREAU. 57 

" We never obligate ourselves to insert an advertisement in a paper which shall demand 
a gross price so much in advance of the price we are to receive as to subject us to an actual 
net loss." 

" That we are paid for the expenses of keeping up our establishment by a commission 
from the newspapers." 

And he asserts 

" It is for services rendered the other party ^^ 

Comment is made upon our statement that we are the Agents 
of the papers only to the extent of a guaranty (the maintenance 
of an office for the reception and forwarding of Advertising 
orders might be added to this) ; and Mr. Bettis proceeds to 
assert what no one denies, that some of our Advertising patrons 
are richer than we ; and that for such no guaranty is worth pay- 
ing for. 

He makes the assertion that he has lost more money on for- 
eign Advertising Agents than through Advertisers — ten to one ; 
thus, apparently, admitting that he, in common with many others, 
has been in the habit of extending recognition to Agents who 
were not entitled to so much consideration. 

He asks, and gives, the definition of the word " Agent." 
According to Webster, it is " one who is authorized to act for 
another," and in commercial usage, "one who acts for an absent 
principal, as the latter would act for himself if on the spot." 

"It involves a trust," says Mr. Bettis, "by the principal of 
his interest, to the guardianship of the agent." 

He concludes that in some way it has come about that the 
Advertising Agent does not stand in this relation to the News- 
paper publisher ; and asserts that 

" Such a state of things is found in no other line of business. 

" Neither the manufacturer or the merchant would tolerate such a representative for an 
hour!" 

And then asks : 

" What are the possibilities of improving the situation, from the publishers' standpoint ? " 

He has shown or asserted (and no one will deny it) that no 
manufacturer or merchant would tolerate such a representative 
for an hour. 

Let us consider, however, what would be the case with the 
manufacturer who had a good Agent, with whom he had no fault 
to find ; but whose business should be so well conducted that it 
was satisfactory to his principal. 



58 GEO. P. ROWELL A GO'S 

If the manufacturer reasoned, " This Agent is worth some- 
thing to me, consequently another will be worth just as much ;" 
and pursuing this policy, appointed several in the same city ; and 
if he happened to hit upon one with a bad reputation, with no 
store and no credit, should extend the same terms to him, al- 
though in this case he exacted cash with his orders, how long 
would the original Agent (who was satisfactory) tolerate such a 
condition of affairs ? 

It must be acknowledged on all sides that no comparison can 
be instituted between the Agent for a manufacturer ; and an Ad- 
vertising Agent ; for no manufacturer's Agent undertakes to 
represent fifteen thousand manufactures ; and no manufacturer 
or merchant appoints a dozen or a hundred Agents (more or 
less) in the same field to underbid each other and cry down the 
value of his merchandise. 

No one understands the point we make, or its remedy, better 
than the writer to whose comments we have called attention ; 
and it so happens that he had previously gone over the same 
ground in an address delivered before the National Editorial As- 
sociation, at its annual meeting in Cincinnati, February, 1886. We 
will proceed to quote from that address. It will be perceived 
that he not only points out the same difficulties, but suggests a 
proper, natural and feasible remedy. 

" Our foreign advertising business is in a very unsatisfactory condition." 

" I shall consider the matter only as it affects the publishers of the lesser dailies and the 
standard country weeklies." 

" These constitute a large majority of the periodicals of the country." 

" The great metropolitan dailies and weeklies are in a position to protect themselves." 

" We are doing the business at prices which are unprofitable and below the real value of 
the service rendered." 

" Our largest and most important customer is the Advertising Agent." A 

" The Advertising Agent is in an anomolous position." 

" Who is this who comes to us with persistent offers of a quarter, a third, or a half of our 
reasonable and just price ? Uses every sophistry and brings to bear every influence which he 
can wield to force from us the very last farthing of reduction ? " 

" Surely this is not our agent ! " 

" He is in the anomolous position of a representative of both sides of a bargain." 

" He has to get the lowest price he can for the advertiser and the highest he can for the 
publisher — two masters almost as hard to serve jointly as God and mammon." 

" It is the fault of the system that I am attacking ; and not those who are honestly work- 
ing under it." 

" From their peculiar position, and through the influence of the sharp competition that 
exists among themselves, the agents are bears in the advertising market." 

" Let us consider, now, how much of the burden of blame lies on our own shoulders." 



NEWSPAPER ADVERTISING BUREAU. 59 

" Some of us have placed our prices too high — higher, in fact, than we expect to get — 
and so offered a special inducement to all patrons to reduce the rate as much as they could," 

" How foolish any advertiser would be to pay these papers full rates !" 

" The great inequality of advertising rates have almost become a by-word in the business 
world!" 

" The difference in cost between printing an edition of 10,000 and 20,000 papers is 
comparatively small, and hence a rate per thousand of circulation that would be unprofitable 
to the first would be profitable to the second." 

" Considering only papers of like circulation and character, there are differences in price 
that can only mean that some are wrongs 

" I fear most of our rates are made by guess-work, and the result shows how human 
minds vary." 

"Again gentlemen have deprecated the value of our advertising space by being willing 
to barter it for articles of little value." 

" If we ourselves hold our columns of so little worth, we need not be surprised if others 
put an equally low value upon them." 

" Other circumstances and motives through which we sacrifice our true interests in this 
connection are many : fear of unequal and unscrupulous competition, financial straits, haste 
to fill unoccupied space — their name is legion." 

" Summing it all up, we find that the larger share of the blame for the unsatisfactory 
condition of things lies with ourselves." 

" Is there an available remedy, partial or complete ? I hold that there is. It has been 
in use for ages, and never so widely as to-day. It is organization." 

" The general idea would be to agree upon a minimum tariff of rates, carefully and intel- 
ligently made." 

" I would have a written and binding agreement made, which would have among its 
clauses the creation of an Advertising Committee." 

" The committee would employ a reliable agent at some central point to take charge 
(under their direction) of the foreign advertising business." 

" He would of couse be exclusively the representative of the press, and would be paid 
a reasonable compensation either in salary or commission." 

" Advertising offerings made to publishers direct would be referred to this agent, and 
advertisements would be received from that territory only through him." 

" The average business man is willing to pay a just profit upon what is sold him ; all he 
asks /i that he is buying as cheaply as anybody else^ 

It will have been observed that all we want for our most val- 
uable customer is the lowest i^x\q,^<, ; and we conduct our business 
in such a wav as to deserve this consideration from the hands of 
Publishers. 

If a Publisher iiever varies his price, he gives us the lowest 
price all the time, and we are satisfied on that point. 

If he sometimes varies his schedule of charge, we want the 
most favorable rate he is giving, and we intend to do our busi- 
ness so well that he will be willing to accord it. When he does 
grant it he grants all we ask, and all we promise to obtain for 
our Advertising patrons. 

But even at the lowest price we cannot send every paper all 
the business its Publisher would like to have ; for if another of 



60 GEO. P. ROWELL & CO'S 



equal value will do the work for less, the Advertiser will take his 
choice between the two ; he expects us to truthfully advise him 
on this point, and we do so to the best of our ability. 

The most extensive Advertiser fails to use all newspapers, 
and must, therefore, select those which will be likely to pay him 
best at the prices asked : and other considerations being equal. 
Advertising in a paper having two thousand circulation is worth 
double what it is in another issuing but a thousand copies. 

Mr. W. H. Brearley, of the Detroit, Michigan, Neivs, read an 
essay to the same Editorial Association which Mr. Bettis ad- 
dressed, and Mr. Brearley also pointed out the practices of some 
Publishers in the matter of charges for Advertisements, and also 
suggested a remedy for existing evils. We quote from his address 
at considerable length : 

In approaching this subject I am reminded of my experience on the Mississippi River 
during the war. After the first brush with a sand-bar, the pilot ordered a leadsman on the 
bow, and our regiment of landsmen were soon introduced to that unique and wonderfully 
constructed vocabulary of calls — "Twain," "quarter less twain," "mark twain ;" but the 
call that was most euphonious and full of meaning (and this, by the way, is the one that 
reminds me of the advertising rates of some papers), was that never-to-be-understood or 
forgotten cry of, " Nine feet and no bottom." 

How can it be otherwise when Hvo things exist in many papers that render the finding of 
qottom rates so near an impossibility. 

At this point in the discussion I have seen men jump up and deny that their journals 
ever deviate from their rates. 

I remember one such incident, that of a paper whose proprietor, without qualification 
and with great vehemence, declared that he " never allowed any one a discount, not even an 
agent." The following day I had a friend of mine write him, asking if he would accept a 
five-inch advertisement at a rate which I knew to be exactly half his rates. His reply was, 
" Your offer is very low, but you may send it along and I will publish it." 

A few days ago I was talking on this subject with a leading New York advertising agent, 
who said, " I have had a customer take my estimate, giving a list of papers with the prices of 
each carried out, and these prices, by the way, at rates much below the papers published rates, 
and instead of contracting through me, he tried the experiment of ordering direct, but offered 
just one-kal/ the. prices I had made." "Did they reject his offers?" I enquired of him. 
"No; nine out of ten accepted his offers, and many of them were good papers." Then, 
making an emphatic gesture, he added, " Now, what can you do with papers that deal like 
that ? I don't care ivhat their rates are, if they are reasonable, but it is essential to know if 
they will ''stick'' to them.'''' 

One of the two things I referred to as conducing to fluctuating advertising rates is the 
fact that the rates of some are too high and cannot be maintained. Evidence of this was 
recently supplied by a table sent out by a leading advertising agency, and which shows a dif- 
ference of 900 per cent, between the rate of the highest and lowest upon the list of forty papers 
quoted, when reduced to a basis of comparison, per inch per issue per thousand circulation. 

The remedy of these evils can be suggested by the fact that there are too many papers 
competing for business, and often without either experience or sufficient capital. A successful 
newspaper can only be established where there is 2l field for it, by one thoroughly competent 
and experienced and who has sufficient capital. The absence of any one of these factors is 
usually fatal, and yet there are experiments being constantly made by those who are destitute 
of all three. 

If advertising was only done with papers upon the basis of their actual instead of their 
claimed circulation, and upon the basis, also, of rates that could universally be conceded to 



NEWSPAPER ADVERTISING BUREAU. 61 

be just to the advertiser and journal alike, these ephemeral and irresponsible sheets would be 
eliminated. 

This brings me to a suggestion which I think deserves the examination of a committee, 
to be reported upon at our next meeting, and which might be worded something like the fol- 
lowing resolution : 

" Resolved, That a committee of three be appointed by the chair to consider and report 
to this convention an advised rate per inch per thousand circulation for various degrees of cir- 
culation and various general classes of journals." 

The advertising agency should not be hastily denozinced. They have their complaints 
that deserve a hearing ; to their credit also should be placed an ijninense amount of busi- 
ness that they have luorked up. To this, niatiy papers are greatly indebted ; especially so 
are the small-circulation journals. But when all has been said, and much more, that ought 
to be conceded to the credit of the advertising agents, the fact still remains that the advertis- 
ing agents are the agents of the advertiser and not the paper. They usually approach the 
subject before us from the standpoint of the advertiser and not the paper. Special agencies 
are being established in New York City by many of the larger papers in consequence of this 
fact, and the desire to have their paper represented by some one who will look at advertising 
from the standpoint of the paper's interest. 

The system has its evils as well as advantages, and I have not time for its discussion. 
Suffice that I would favor the establishment in New York City, and possibly in Boston, 
Philadelphia and other large cities, of a "Publishers' Association," membership to be 
restricted to those papers who adopt a rigid system of publishing actual circulations, and the 
adoption of uniform rates (per inch per thousand as suggested by the resolution) and then 
only by papers who are willing to pay $50 or more per year. I would have this Association 
rent a suite of suitable rooms, which would be headquarters for all papers that are members 
and to be conducted under rules to be adopted at organization and thereafter controlled by an 
executive committee. 

I would have the work of this Association include many things needed by the publishers, 
one of which would be the collecting and distributing of information concerning reliability of 
advertisers, the old agencies, etc., in some such way as the editorial departments are served 
by their telegraph news associations. Here the papers of the Association would be always on 
file. This need not and should not conflict with the old agencies, with whom I have the 
most friendly relations. 

I do not think that this should be too hurriedly entered upon. I would suggest that the 
whole matter be referred to this committee, who should be requested to bring in a specific 
recommendation at our next session. 



Many Publishers Make Comments. 

In pursuance of this suggestion of Mr. Brearley's, a meeting 
was held at Rochester, New York, in February last, and then 
was formed the " American Publishers' Association." One of 
the suggestions put out at that meeting was to the effect that an 
association composed of the leading Advertising Agencies would 
be a step toward solving the questions in which all are interested. 

We have received communications upon this subject from 
every quarter ; and quote here extracts from some of them. 

In Favor of Organization. 

From Cleveland, Ohio. — I am decidedly in favor of an Asso- 
ciation of Advertising Agents, and if such an association could be formed of strictly responsible 



62 GEO. P. ROWELL & GO'S 

fair dealing agents, I am certain that a harmonious system could be established between such 
agents and the leading Publishers of this country, that would be conducive to great good for 
all parties concerned. It would, to my mind at least, promise the abolition of competition 
between Publisher and Advertising Agent, which is at present the most demoralizing element 
in the business. 

From Raleigh, N. C. — The suggestion that the Advertising 

Agents form an Association of responsible agents, and admit none excepting such as the Asso- 
ciation can recommend to Publishers, we think a good one ; and is one we made to the meet- 
ing at Rochester. 

From Cleveland, Ohio. — My impression is that you and 

others of your profession or calling, should, without any regard to the newspapers, organize 
into an Association, and determine your own status, just as we are doing in the "American 
Newspaper Publishers' Association." 

From Pittsburgh, Pa. — We would favor an organization of 

agents, believing that such an organization might limit the mischief done by unreliable Pub- 
lishers and Advertising Agents, making the lot of the reliable members of each class happier 
and better. 

From Lynchburg, Va. — It is with real pleasure that we learn 

that there is in contemplation the organization of an Association of Advertising Agents ; it 
will be of immense advantage to Publishers and great protection to responsible Agents. 

From Griffin, Ga. — The idea of an exclusive Agents' Asso- 
ciation of responsible parties meets my hearty appreciation. If such an organization can be 
formed it shall receive my hearty support and co-operation. 

From Sparta, Ga. — I think the idea of Advertising Agents 

forming an Association a good one, and will stand square up to them and will not receive 
work from any one who does not belong to said Association. 

From Portland, Ind. — In much favor of the scheme of Asso- 
ciated Advertising Agents, and would gladly confine my dealing with such an Association 
when established. 

From Burlington, Vt. — If the good Agents take hold of the 

matter in earnest they can do a great deal to restore the cordial relations with Publishers ; and 
we shall be glad to see some such organization. 

From Americus, Ga. — I am heartily in favor of the forming 

of an Association of Advertising Agents, as I believe it would be mutually profitable to both 
Advertising Agents and Publishers. 

From Ashtabula, Ohio. — We favor the movement suggested 

in forming an Agents' Association. 

Publishers and Agents Can Work Together. 

From Cleveland, Ohio. — The Agents' Association once estab- 
lished, how easily questions of moment to either party could be adjusted by the Executive of 
both organizations. How easily could both organizations work in each other's interest and for 
the interest of all concerned. 

From Memphis, Tenn. — We hope that the discussion will 

lead to the adoption of measures for the protection of Advertising Agencies and of Publishers 
of old and established newspapers. We believe that the interests of the two are identical, and 
that beneficial results will follow any movement that will bring them into closer and more 
cordial relationship. 

From Cincinnati, Ohio. — In the recent convention at Roches- 
ter, I offered the following resolution : 



NEWSPAPER ADVERTISING BUREAU. 63 

Resolved, That the object of this Association is not to antagonize in any way, any reliable 
Advertising Agencies, but we desire this Association and its members shall be thoroughly 
posted as to who are reliable Advertising Agents and who are worthy of credit. 

From Burlington, Vt. — The writer has personally done 

some work in various ways looking to the clearing up of the business relations between Adver- 
tisers, Agents and Publishers, and he is glad to see the Agents taking hold of the matter. 

The Value of the Best Advertising Agencies. 

From Memphis, Tenn. — The writer's experienee has con- 
vinced him that the Advertising Agencies are his best friends, and he believes that all old and 
experienced Publishers will agree in this conclusion. It is fair to say, however, that the writer 
did not reach this opinion until some years after he had embarked in the newspaper business, 
and during that period he joined with other publishers in a full and unstinted denunciation of 
the agencies. 

• 

From Griffin, Ga. — I would prefer dealing through a re- 
sponsible and satisfactory Agent to dealing with Advertiser direct, even at a less net price. A 
good Agent knows what newspaper business is, and what it is possible for a newspaper to do, 
and will protect the paper as well as his patron ; and he is likely to be more prompt and busi- 
ness-like than the generality of even the most solvent Advertisers. If all foreign business 
could come through a few responsible agencies, the business of a newspaper manager could be 
much simplified. 

From Memphis, Tenn. — Old Publishers will agree with us 

when we say that business taken from the good old Agents at a discount, pays more than the 
same amount taken by the Publishers direct from the Advertisers at full rates. 

Make Use of Their Agents. 
I think if all Publishers would refer their Eastern business 

to their New York Agents, as New York is headquarters for Advertising Agencies, and Western 
business in like way to Chicago or St. Louis, it would be better all around. 

From St. Paul, .Minn. — We certainly believe that it is the 

right policy for us to protect Agents every time ; we always do it. 

From Meadville, Pa. — It would be our policy to refer to all 

parties not satisfied with our general rates to these selected agencies. 

A Few Better than Too Many. 
From Rochester, N. Y. — So far as this office is concerned, 

we would be very greatly pleased if some sort of arrangement could be made by which we 
would not recognize or do business with more than six agencies which we well know, and at 
the same time have our interests properly looked after. 

From St. Louis, Mo. — We do business with thirty or forty 

Advertising Agents in the United States. We look upon only six or seven as being prompt 
in their payments, fair in their measurements, and entirely free from trickery. 

From Wapakoneta, Ohio. — Individually, although we re- 
ceive considerable business from small Agents in the aggregate, I am decidedly in favor of an 
Association recommended by the Publishers' Association. 

From Burlington, Vt. — We have on our books the names 

of twenty-seven Advertising Agents. Of this number we can only think of six whom -we 
would care especially to do business with. 

From Wilmington, Del. — Will accept business only from 

legitimate and responsible Agents (less than a dozen, all told). 



64 GEO. P. ROWELL & GO'S 

From Nebraska City, Neb. — We had much rather do busi- 
ness with only two or three Agents who we know are good, than a dozen uncertain ones. 

# The Danger of Multiplying Agencies. 
From IndianapoHs, Ind. — It is a great mistake Pubhshers 

make giving aid and comfort to so many commercially irresponsible agencies. Their impe- 
cuniosity drives them to slashing and demoralizing methods, and in the long run they do 
more harm to the press than good, by far. If by declining to accept business at all from such, 
a Publisher should temporarily lose a few hundred, within a year or two at most the advance 
to solid ground and restoration of confidence in settled prices and methods would gain him 
far more than such loss. (I heartily wish there were not more than half a dozen agencies, and 
would quickly join any concerted movement of respectable Publishers to bring about that limit 
by absolutely declining the orders of all others.) 

From Memphis, Term. — In the past two or three years an 

immense number of so-called agencies have sprung up. Inquiries through the commercial 
agencies uniformly show that the managers of the so-called Advertising Agencies are men 
without capital. These men obtain control of good lines of business and Publishers feel 
compelled, in spite of their better judgment, to open an account with them. If the move- 
ment continues, Publishers will, in the course of time, lose the advantage they now possess, 
in having the agencies guarantee payment, and will gain nothing in compensation. 

From Memphis, Tenn. — The danger threatening the Adver- 
tising business does not lie in opposition to agencies, nor in the tendency among Publishers to 
give net rates to Advertisers, so much as in the institution of the great number of so-called 
Advertising Agencies who compete with old and established houses for business. 

From Babylon, N. Y. — There are too many agencies, when 

they are allowed as now to bid against each other for advertising. 

Commendations of Geo. P. Rowell & Co. 
From Camden, N. J. — We regard your agency as the best 

managed in the United States. We don't do business with anybody or any agency that equals 
your promptness in paying bills. It is safe to wager on check within forty-eight hours after 
bill is mailed, and it would be absurd to urge that this feature was not entitled to highest con- 
sideration, where so many are thieves, and while some of the most honorable are criminally 
slow in paying. Orders for advertising are also simple. A glance gives the proposition. The 
business received is also of better character than the average, and the work usually asked 
about is not so abominably diiiScult to do according to contract, and there is not usually much, 
I may say never, any petty correspondence about petty matters. In other words, there is 
more business to the square inch in your dealings with us than we receive from any other 
agency. 

From Belleville, 111. — Business coming through your agency 

is secured without wrangling correspondence — with fewer complicating conditions as to posi- 
tion, etc., — in as great if not greater quantity — than from any other agency. Bills paid 
promptly /« cash — nothing else even tendered. Have dealings with other agencies of many 
excellent virtues, but you manage to have as many and one or two more. 

From Bristol, Pa. — While the average yearly income resulting 

from my transactions with your firm have not been large, yet it gives me pleasure to say that 
never during that long period (lo years) has there been a single exception to the prompt and 
satisfactory fulfillment of all contracts made by your firm. 

From Charlottesville, Va. — Your agency stands first in this 

office. You have given me more advertising with less trouble and correspondence than any 
other ligency with whom I deal. 

From Bowling Green, Ky. — Geo. P. Rowell & Co. I regard 

as the head of the list, except probably in liberality.

NEWSPAPER ADVERTISING BUREAU. 65 

From New Haven, Conn. — Your manner of doing business 

should entitle you to better rates than most advertising agencies. 

From Putnam, Ct. — Without any flattery, the Geo. P. Rowell 

Agency is the most business-hke, systematic and prompt. 

Conclusions Arrived At. 
From Greensburg, Pa. — It has been the privilege of country 

newspapers to learn the standing of Advertising Agencies by a term in the school of direct 
experience. The lesson has been so expensive a one that the temptation is great to make a 
sweeping condemnation of the entire Advertising Agency fraternity. To avoid being unjust, 
will you not aid us in determining which are the " goats " and which are the " sheep " in your 
business. In other words, we would like very much to obtain a list of the sound, reliable 
Advertising Agencies in the United States. We have now on our table at least half a dozen 
propositions from as many different parties asking for space. If they are reliable we want 
their business. If they are not, we don''t want it. The Convention recently held in Roches- 
ter, in which you took a prominent part, as I understand it, or rather a live interest, though 
possibly not a direct one, had for its object the compilation of a list of reliable agencies. Has 
that list been published or been made known ? 

We have always contended that the sharp competition between Agencies, caused by an 
unhealthy multiplicity of them, has been the cause of " low rates " and " bad accounts." We 
agree with you that a few good agencies in the United States and a carefully selected list of 
papers in each State, would be an advantage to Advertisers, Agencies and to the newspapers, 
and it will give us pleasure in aiding any movement that has for its object the weeding out of 
the fellows who " bust " to-day and " become corporations " to-morrow. 

From Decorah, Iowa. — If there could be an agency that 

would really be an agency for the newspaper, it would become the inflexible duty of Pub- 
lishers to stand by them. 

From Moncton, N. B. — It seems to me the discussion you 

have commenced might be continued, and result in a fair understanding to all concerned.

EXPLANATIONS. 



D A tfD-^p^'O'D These geographical indicators, which 
are placed immediately after the names of the counties, desig- 
nate the relative position of the counties in theii' respective 
States, TeiTitories or Provinces, the centre of each being used 
as a basis. They were devised and copyrighted by Joseph M. 
Toner, M. D., of Washington, D. C, and are used by authority 
of a contract with hun. 

The population figures marked with a dagger f ^^'^ from 
the census of 1880, all others are from more recent estimates by 
resident publishers or postmasters. 

Pubhcations known to be bought and cu'culated mainly by 
persons and firms advertising therein by means of descriptive 
articles in the reading columns ; or devoted to the (almost) 
exclusive advertising of any particular person or firm, or the 
advertising of any certain idea ; or estabhshed solely as adver 
tising schemes ; embracing a class with cu'culations very largely 
gi'atuitous ; are termed " advertising sheets," and no circulation 
rating is given. 

In cases in which no advertisements are taken for a pubUca- 
tion, the circulation rating, being of no importance to advertisers, 
has been omitted ; and in its place are inserted the words : " does 
not insert advertisements." 

From Pubhshers of Newspapers who furnish information 
upon which the cu'culation rating may be based, a memoran- 
dimi is asked of the actual date and issues of each number of 
the paper for the preceding three months. Each publisher send- 
ing such a report is requested to make it as definite and exact, 
as to dates and figures, as he would requii'e from a rival pub- 
lisher, were a comparison, based upon the two reports, to be 
instituted between the two papers. 

Small engravings of newspaper buildings on solid 
metal bodies, occupying space of one inch in length 
or width, and no more, subject to approval on inspec- 
tion, are inserted with the description of the paper 
without any charge. The Crosscup & West Engraving- 
Co., No. 702 Chestnut street, Philadelphia, are good 
parties to furnish the engravings requked, and have 
made all, or nearl}" all, which now appeal' in the book. 

The Directory is issued annually. The work upon its 
revision proceeds all the time. Advertisers, Pubhshers and the 
pubhc are entreated to lend their aid by calling attention 
to its shortcomings. The book can never be made perfect, but 
no pains will be sj^ared to sustain the position which it has 
attained in the good opinion of advertisers and publishers.
