PREFACE. 



The past year — memorable for its importance in regard to political and 
kindred affairs — has been an abnormal one in the history of American News- 
papers. The present is the Ninth Edition of the American Newspaper* 
Directory. Year after year, as the consecutive editions appeared, the statistics 
contained in the volume exhibited a steady increase in the number of pub- 
lications issued; and prosperity among newspaper publishers, if not proved, 
was at least suggested by this increase. In introducing the present edition 
of the Directory, however, it is the lot of the publishers, for the first time, to 
call attention to a considerable diminution in the number of newspapers, in- 
stead of the accustomed increase. In the last edition of the work there were 
mentioned 782 daily, 90 tri-weekly, 135 semi-weekly, 6,592 weekly, 35 bi- 
weekly, 107 semi-monthly, 791 monthly, 17 bi-monthly and 70 quarterly pub- 
lications. In the present edition there are mentioned 755 daily, 79 tri-weekly, 
129 semi-weekly, 6,564 weekly, 37 bi-weekly, 89 semi-monthly, 701 monthly, 
15 bi-monthly and 58 quarterly publications. The total number mentioned 
in the last edition was 8,617. The total number mentioned in the present 
edition is 8,427. In New York State, Pennsylvania and Massachusetts, in 
which States newspapers probably attain their greatest stability, there has 
alike been a decrease. In New York State the decrease was 45 ; in Pennsyl- 
vania 34; and in Massachusetts 17. There has been a decrease in twenty-one 
of the United States, and in four of the Canadian Provinces. An increase 
has been witnessed in twelve States, and also in the Territories, as well as in 
one of the Provinces. The total decrease is one hundred and ninety. 
These figures include Canadian and Newfoundland publications. As to 
publications issued in the United States, the decrease is one hundred and 
seventy-one. 

It is apparent, therefore, that the last twelve months have, in a financial 
sense, been unusually unsatisfactory to newspaper publishers. It should not 
be inferred, however, that the newspaper field has been one of stagnation. 
The scarcity of cash advertisers and cash subscribers has rendered more 
fervent the rivalry of publishers ; and, partly by reason of the excitements and 
hopes incidental to a National Election of unaccustomed ardor, a sufficient 
number of newspapers have come into being to have maintained the total 
number reported in the last edition of the Directory, had there not been, in 



PREFACE. 



addition to the eventual suspension of many of the new papers, also an unusual 
mortality among those already established. Journalistic prosperity, however, 
is not to be judged by the number of the papers that are establishe 1 within 
a given period, but by the number that maintain their existence ; and the 
Centennial year has undeniably been one of extended pecuniary oppression 
among the men that publish papers. It is hoped and seems probable that 
the next edition of this work will chronicle a better experience during the 
current year, and that with the present gradual return of business, the past 
financial restrictions of newspaper publishers will be happily compensated. 

It is worthy of remark that complete circulation reports for the work have 
been received from a larger number of prominent papers than for any previous 
edition, and that there is a growing disposition on the part of publishers to 
concede the right of advertisers to see what they buy before they buy it. 
There also appears to be no lessening of the public's desire for a work in the 
preparation of which at least some care is taken to prevent dishonest 
exaggerations of circulation figures. 

The new feature in the work — the descriptions of towns in which news- 
papers are published — is believed to give additional value to the volume. A 
complete description of a newspaper serves its purpose, but the geographical 
situation of the place where it is issued, as well as the class and general occu- 
pations of the people among whom it circulates, is also of some moment. 
These particulars have been collected as far as practicable, and will doubtless 
grow more complete and reliable as the publishers who are applied to for 
them perceive their usefulness to the advertising public.

Extract from a paper read by Howard Owen, Editor of the 
" Kennebec Journal," before the Association of Maine 
Editors and Publishers, at the annual meeting held in 
Augusta, February 23d, 1874. 
Advertising Agencies furnish the reserved funds for the ordin- 
ary newspaper. They sprung from a great necessity ; publishers 
in the country could nut afford to employ at each commercial 
centre an agent to work exclusively for his paper ; nor is any pub- 
lisher so rich or independent as to refuse the patronage of foreign 
advertising. These agents occupy a field that yields one of the 
surest crops cultivated in journalism. They are laborers in an im- 
portant field, and are in every way worthy of their hire. 

It is a strong argument in favor of the advertising agencies thai 
bo few have proved recreant and gone to ruin. I refer to those of 
steady growth and honorable purpose, whose names readily occur 
to you, and accounts with whom are as safe as though made at the 
counter of any bank in Christendom. They have passed through 
the recent financial panic, when disaster has come to almost every 
other branch of business.

EXPLANATIONS. 



POPULATION. 

The population is from census of 1870, or recent estimate of resident postmasters or publish- 
ers—the latter case indicated by a dagger— c. h. stands for court house, county seat— m. for miles 
—p. for population— r. for river and Rd. for railroad. 



CIRCULATION. 

The circulation has been omitted in cases where a description of the publications did not 
appear in the last edition of the Directory. 

Where no advertisements are taken for a publication, the matter of circulation, being unim- 
portant, has been omitted, and the fact stated thus : "Does not insert advertisements." 

In some instances, from local jealousies or other causes, the statements of publishers have 
been questioned, and in such cases, the affidavits have been called for, and when promptly fur 
nished the figures are marked with a dagger (f), which indicates that the affidavit is on file in this 
office. The star (*) against estimated circulations, indicates that a larger issue was claimed and 
a willingness to furnish an affidavit in proof of the correctness thereof expressed by the pub- 
lisher, but none was furnished in response to the application therefor. 

Where publications are bought and circulated by persons and Arms that advertise therein 
by means of descriptive articles in the reading columns, or devoted to the (almost) exclusive 
advertising of any particular person or firm, or to the advei"tising of any certain idea, or estab- 
lished solely as advertising schemes, embracing a class with circulations almost entirely 
gratuitous, they are termed " advertising sheets," and no circulation given. 

ft Means that the Editor of the Directory at the time of going to press had no certain evi- 
dence that the paper so marked had suspended publication, but he was unable to secure any 
late issue, therefore no particulars are given. 



ITALIC WORDS. 

Where italic matter follows the description of a publication, it is by order of the publisher, 
and is paid for as an advertisement. 

The publishers of the Directory assume no responsibility for any statements made in italic 
type, every publisher of a newspaper being allowed to print in that manner anything for which 
he is willing to pay the price demanded, viz. : ten cents a word.
