NEWSPAPER CIRCULATIONS. 



As this Directory is reprinted every three months there 
exists no valid reason why the circulation of any newspaper 
should continue to be misrepresented, unless it be an unwilling- 
ness on the part of the publisher of such newspaper to furnish 
the editor of the Directory with facts upon which his report 
may be based. 

In all cases where the circulation figures are preceded by the 
word " estimated" they represent the opinion of the editor of 
the Directory. Where the word " estimated " does not appear 
the figures are the statement of the publisher of the newspaper, 
and are not doubted by the editor of the Directory. Circula- 
tions marked with the dagger (f) are supported by affidavits on 
file at the Directory ofiice, and are believed by the editor of 
the Directory to be correct. Circulations marked with the 
asterisk (*) are claimed by the publishers of the newspapers to 
be too small, but said publishers do not substantiate the claims 
which they set forth. 

If the publisher of a newspaper, who, finding himself 
wronged by the estimated circulation attributed to his journal 
by this Directory, will, upon the very day that his attention is 
called to this paragraph, begin a record of the number of 
copies actually printed of each issue of his paper, and furnish 
the same to the editor of this Directory, monthly or quar- 
terly, accompanied by an offer to verify the statements fur- 
nished, the same will be received, considered, and acted upon. 

ADDRESS COMMUNICATIONS TO 

EDITOR OF AMERICAN NEWSPAPER DIRECTORY, 

No. 10 SPRUCE ST. (PRINTING HOUSE SQUARE), NEW YORK. 



PREFACE. 



The Tenth annual edition of the American Newspaper 
Directory is presented to the public in January, 1878 (instead 
of delaying the issue until May, as in the case of its predecess- 
ors), and inaugurates a new era in the existence of the pub- 
lication; which will henceforth appear four times a year. It 
will be subject to daily revision, and errors which are unavoid- 
able in a work of this character can be corrected with a prompt- 
ness not possible in an annual publication. 

The requirement for an increased purchasing value for 
money has been met by attention to cheapness without render- 
ing the book less trustworthy. Ordinary instead of superfine 
paper is used. Expensive covers are superseded. Smaller type 
is adopted, requiring fewer pages, and for the former demand 

of five dollars per volume the popular price of fifty cents is sub- 
stituted. 

The confidence reposed in former editions will be merited 
by those which are to follow, and publishers of newspapers, adver- 
tisers and the general public are besought to lend their efficient 
aid to the editor by calling his attention to such shortcomings 
in the work as come under their personal observation. 

This edition appears without advertisements, but those 
which are to follow will not dispense with so important a 
source of income.

EXPLANATIONS. 



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

The circulation has been omitted in cases where a descrip- 
tion 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 unimportant, has been omitted, and 
the fact stated thus : " Does not insert advertisements." 

In some instances the statements of publishers have been 
questioned, and in such cases, the affidavits have been called for, 
and when furnished 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 publisher, but 
none was furnished in response to the application therefor. 

Where publications are bought and circulated by persons 
and firms 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 adver- 
tising of any certain idea, or established solely as advertising 
schemes, embracing a class with circulations almost entirely 
gratuitous, they are termed " advertising sheets," and no circu- 
lation given. 

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

Where italic matter follows the description of a publica- 
tion, it is by order of the publisher, and is paid for as an adver- 
tisement. 

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.
