PREFACE. 



Of the Twelfth Annual issue of the American Newspaper 
Directory a larger edition than was ever before called for has 
been found requisite to meet the demands upon its publishers. 
Ten thousand tw^o hundred and fifty copies of this issue have 
been printed. While engaged upon the revision, necessar}' 
before publication, a careful review of the origin and progi'ess 
of the enterprise has been made, with the purpose of bringing 
more prominently to mind its original object, the methods by 
which it was sought to be advanced, and the changes in them 
brought about by teachings of experience. Every care has been 
taken to bring out in bold relief, faults w^hich remain to be reme- 
died, and to ensui'e the confidence of the widety divergent inter- 
ests represented by Publishers and Advertisers : by the men on 
one side who pay money for the insertion of, and those on the 
other w^ho receive pay for, advertisements. 

Fifteen years ago it was exceedingly difficult to procure a list 
of the newspapers printed in any State. Such as existed were 
scattered thi'ough Directories, Registers, and Almanacs. Cata- 
logues, representing something like twelve States, all told, could 
thus be collected, while double that number remained uni-epre- 
sented. A gentleman who, shortly after the war, had compiled 
with considerable accuracy a list of the papers in the Southern 
States, found sale for Tv^itten copies at one hundi^ed dollars each. 
The task of issuing a complete Dii-ectory of all the Newspapers 
of all the States was by no means a light one or easily accom- 
plished. Of the five thousand blanks asking for information, 
which were fii'st sent out, less than five hundi-ed were responded 
to in any manner. The enterprise had however been determined 
upon : a competent editor was placed in charge ; a year of labor 
was devoted to correspondence, gazetteers, atlases, du-ectories, 
and publications of every sort bearmg on the subject ; the 
A]\iERiCAN Newspaper Directory was the result : making its first 
appearance in May, 1869. Its annual reappearance was promised ; 
and confidence was expressed that those yearly-recurring issues 
would be found "A reliable index to the Newspapers of America." 
In the preface of this first edition its publishers say : 

" We have always believed, and labored in the belief, that, as Advertising Agents it was 
and should be in our power to be of material service to both advertiser and publisher, and 
we know of no better way to convince them of the value of our services than by issuing this 
book, thus enabling them to communicate without our aid." 

The circulation of a newspaper is not the only element for an 
advertiser to consider : — the amount of money a man is possessed 



GEO. P. ROWELL & GO'S 



of is not tlie sole consideration to be kept in view when deciding 
whether credit may be extended to him ; but in each case these 
are important questions. The first is more so than the second ; 
for a man with no money may be safe for a small account, but a 
newspaper without a reader is positively of no value. Mercantile 
agencies exist, employing hundi'eds of men : their whole business 
consists in furnishing quotations of the financial standing of 
merchants. Its publishers early announced a piu'pose to make 
the American Newspaper Directory such an agency for reporting 
newspaper circulations. This feature soon became its principal 
element of value. Then* right to render this service to adver- 
tisers was not thought to be a matter admitting of question, but 
time revealed that some publishers of newspapers entertained 
different views. A few ex2:)ressions of opinion to tliis effect are 
here given : 

" As every publisher knows, there is no item in the business of a newspaper that is so 
carefully concealed as that of circulation."— A'. Y. Graphic, Aug. 15, 1878. 

" Respectable publishers will rarely allow their circulation to be spread before the 
public." — Ibid. 

"We contend that no man, nor set of men, after requesting our circulation and learning 
our refusal to furnish it, have a right to ' estimate ' and publish that circulation under a 
risk of putting it too low, and thus injuring our business."— Swracwse (N. Y.) Sunday Times, 
Aug. 25, 1878. 

" We would prefer to go on with our business without referring to our circulation." 
—Rochester (N. Y.) Sunday Herald, Feb. 24, 1878. 

"I have been sitting here for years and have never answered that question. If you go 
to any publisher and he answers j'ou such a question you may be sure that he lies. All I 
can say is, as they say of old Massachusetts, 'there she is— look at her.' I cannot answer 
your question more definitely."— (JorfZon L. Ford, Publisher N. Y. Tribune, May, 1880. 

" We do not send figures because we do not make any statements that are untrue, and 
do not care to appear alongside the grotesque liars, &c., &c.— Cincinnati (O.) Commercial, 
May 13. 1876. 

A few publishers of newspapers are found who have no objec- 
tions to quoting theu' cu-culation, but do not admit the right of 
any one to question them on the subject. It is n6t easy to see 
how these may be accej^tably approached. In dealing with 
them, however, the publishers of the Directory use every en- 
deavor to avoid giving offense in the fulfilment of what they 
consider a duty, and a little correspondence sometimes results 
in a good understanding, doing away with any vestige of ill feel- 
ing. Expressions of this sort of opinion are here reproduced : 

" A large class of publishers who are possessed of a sufficient amount of independence 
and self respect to allow no imputation to be cast upon their veracity, and who intend to 
manage their journals in their own waj', either return those blanks unanswered or consign 
them to the waste basket." — Woburn {Mass.) Advertiser, June 24, 1875. 

"We have never furnished these journalistic middle men with any statement of our 
circulation. 

" If our advertising friends desire information in regard to the circulation of the Gazette 
we refer them to the Transylvania Printing Co., where our press-w^ork is done, and who can 
tell the precise number of papers we issue. 

" It is hardly fair to take the estimate of New York middle men for what is so easily 
obtained here at home."— Lexington (Ky.) Gazette, June 19, 1875. 

" A few weeks since we were in receipt of a published circular. 

" It was deposited in the waste basket. 

" Recently we received another, couched in very moderate terms, calling attention to 
the fact that we had failed to render our report, &c., &c. 

" It was through no oversight that the report was neglected, but through our inability 
to see the necessity of sending any report whatever."— Columbus (O.) Gazette, Nov. 12, 1875. 

" We deny the right of a publication like this to estimate our circulation in the absence 
of our own statements, and insist upon the right on our own part to make statements 
regarding this matter or to withhold them. * * * We complained 

directlj' to the publishers, and we are compelled to say that their correspondence has been 
that of men who seem to have an honest intention to get at the truth." — Burlington (loloa) 
Hawkeye, June 13, 1877. 



AIVIERICAN NEWSPAPER DIRECTORY. 



It has occasionally been the fortune of the Directory to at- 
tract the attention of a prominent journal which had previously 
ignored its existence. Its publishers have, in two or thi"ee such 
cases, found themselves " crushed " without warning. It is some- 
thing for the good faith and accuracy of the Directory, that thus 
far. there has been no instance in which a newspaper has under  
taken this sort of thing a second time. The particulars of one of 
these controversies are briefly quoted here, as given in the columns 
of a journal occupying the position of a looker-on : 

A New York letter wiiter has the following concerning the dispute about circulation 
between the Sun and Herald: "The New York Herald, our great sensation paper, has 
recently broken out in a new spot. In publishing a statement of its circulation, some days 
ago, it took occasion to make a ^^olent onslaught on Geo. P. Rowell & Co. and their Asieri- 
CAN Newspaper Directory, for both of whom the Herald professes a violent and rather 
overdone contempt. It has V)een the general impression that the 'Chambermaids' Organ' 
held itself so high as to be quite oblivious of anything that might be said about it by any one : 
but this outburst shows that Rowell & Co.'s statement in the Directory cut too near the 
truth tn be pleasant, and the Great American polo-player is furious. Immediately upon the 
Herald's publication of its figures, the Sun challenged it to submit to an examination of 
the books of both institutions by a committee of newspaper men, agreeing if the Herald 
made good its claim to forfeit §1,000. Messrs. Rowell & Co. at once came forward and 
offered to swell the amount to §6,000— as an inducement to the Herald to 'put up, or 
shut up.' But the latter did neither. It declined the Sun's proposition, but challenged 
Rowell & Co. to a somewhat different test, the penalty of the beaten party to be a .$25,000 
forfeit to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Rowell & Co. promptly accepted the challenge, 
and at the same time made the Herald four other propositions, each of which displayed 
such confidence in the latter's lack of veracity that it was thought the paper must, in self- 
defence, accept at least one of them. Instead of this, it ignored them all, and contented 
itself by throwing a little mud at its Inquisitors. Thus the ' great American newspaper ' 
places itself in an unenviable position. It fails to back up its assertions, and it is guilty of 
slander. As a newspaper man, I happen to know that Rowell's Directory is neither to 
be bought nor intimidated, and that it is the most fearless and truthful work of the kind in 
the cowutry ."—Hartford {Conn.) Courant of Sept. 11, 1878. 

The wish has always l^een earnest, that the Directory should 
become indispensable to advertisers. Its pubhcation having been 
undertaken as a life work, every point wherein it is open to 
criticism has received constant and careful consideration, yet 
there are some persons who have no confidence in its good faith. 

" The publisher who can tell the biggest lie always has the biggest circulation— in a 
Newspaper Directory."— iacon {III.) Democrat, June 16, 1877. 

" Those papers who patronize the Directorj' are credited with a circulation much greater 
than they in reality possess, while those who refuse to patronize the Directory are repre- 
sented as having a much smaller circulation than honestly belongs to them." — N Y. 
Weekly, Sept. 2d, 187S. 

Since its inception, the compilation of the American Newspaper 
Directory has been intrusted to but three different 2)ersons. 
First, ]\Ii'. Nelson Chesman, who now conducts an Advertising 
Agency in St. Louis ; Second, ^Lr. Oscar G. Moses, who has 
since become a member of the firm of Geo. P. Rowell & Co. ; 
Third. Mr. William Wattenberg. the present editor. 

The following extracts from statements lately made by the 
gentlemen above named as editors, are here introduced as con- 
veying information about the plan of compilation, which cannot 
fail to be worth the notice of those who entertain views similar 
to those set forth in the two extracts printed above : 

In the summer of 1868 work was begun upon the first edition of the Directory, and from 
that time up to September, 1874, the entire management of the detail of collecting and 
collating the statistics that went to make up the complete work and its annual I'evisions 
devolved upon me. 

During the time the book was published under my management it was my desire and 
aim to make it an accurate chronicle of the newspapers and periodical publications of 
North America. In my efforts in this direction I was never limited in my action or the 
means necessary to carry out any plan that was adopted for the accomplishment of this end. 

In fixing the figures for the circulation of such publications as failed to make the report 
asked for I was governed by the best judgment I could form from the appearance of the 
publication, the size of the place where published, and any special information I might have 
relating to the subject, and in no case was the question of patronage to the work considered. 



10 GEO. P. ROWELL A CO'S 

My recollection is that the circulation ratings were no more satisfactory to those publishers 
who advertised in the book than to others who did not. 

The Directory was "my pet" from the first and while it was a monotonous field of 
labor my friends and acquaintances will aver that I never allowed pleasure or recreation to 
interfere with my best endeavors to make each succeeding edition an improvement upon 
the last, and a book, that as an editor, I could look upon with a feeling of pride. Had the 
book been my private enterprise it would not have received more careful attention or been 
produced in a more independent manner so far as relates to the influence of the members of 
the firm employing me. NELSON CHESMAN. 

St. Louis, Mo., April 1st, 1880. 

I w^as the second editor of the American Newspaper Directory. While the book was 
in my charge I was never in any way instructed, nor expected, to make it anything other 
than the most correct compilation possible of the statistics of American Newspapers. I 
did not at the time of fixing the circulation ratings generally know whether the paper 
under consideration was to have an advertisement in the edition or not. 

The book was in my charge from November 1st, 1874, to April 1st, 1878 (editions of 1875, 
1876, 1877, January, 1878, and April, 1878), and in my opinion the publication, and the circula- 
tion ratings, could not have been more impartial had the book been absolutelv my ow^n 
enterprise. OSCAR G. MOSES. 

New York, March 30, 1880. 

Since about the winter of 1877, the successive editions of the American Newspaper 
Directory have been issued under my supervision. 

The circulation rating, or credit accorded to the various papers, is a chief feature ; and 
no other part of the plan has seemed to call so strenuously for careful and conscientious 
effort. I may say that almost from the outset of my work (nearly two years before the 
charge of it was entrusted to me) I could not fail to recognize that to tell the truth when it 
could be got at, or to come as near the truth as practicable when it was hidden, was, in the 
matter of these circulations, the great aim of the puV)lishers of the book ; though I could not 
help seeing at the same time that this aim, tenaciously clung to as it was, must and did 
draw bitter hostility. The purpose, as shown in acts and conversation, to have an honest 
book was obvious. The wish to have the apparent facts stated in every case without 
fear or favor was sharply defined. 

I recall that there have been numerous cases in which a publisher, on complaining of an 
alleged understatement of the circulation of his paper, would seem to think he was adding 
gravity to his grievance by citing the fact that he had ordered a paid advertisement. There 
is little doubt that some publishers sent orders with the hope that their doing so would 
influence the extent of the circulation ascribed to their papers ; but I will say bluntly and 
frankly that the sentiment inspired by these cases was tranquil disgust. 

To produce an impartial guide to American Newspapers has been the constant object. 
It could not have been more so had the work been the individual enterprise of the writer. 

WM. WATTENBERG. 

New York, March 29, 1880. 

Among the many experiments tried at various times, to 
secure greater accuracy, joroofs of State sections were on one 
occasion sent to every paper in each State, puhhshers being- 
asked to be so good as to revise them, pointing out errors 
should any be observed. It was supposed that this action 
would meet the approval of every one. but shortly the following 
criticism was observed in a western paper. 

" We do not believe that there are any Illinois editors who will play the spy and 
informer."— iocon (///.) Journal, June, 1877. 

There may have been other publishers who took an equally 
unhappy view ; but in this, as in all other cases where the pub- 
lishers of the Directory have had occasion to make an appeal 
to the Press of the country, the general response was favorable 
and hearty in the extreme, and many letters of an extremel}^ 
flattering character were received, accompanying the returned 
proofs. 

" So far as our local papers are concerned, we believe you have given fair statements as. 
to their respective circulations." — Forestville, {N. Y.) Farmer, letter. 

" So far as we have means of correctly judging, your estimates of circulation are nearly 
correct."— Southington, (Conn.) Phoenix, letter, Oct. 23, 1878. 

" Yours is the most comprehensive and most nearly correct Directory of Iowa that I 
have seen. You have reason to feel proud of it."— Exira, (loica) Sentinel, letter. 

" The circulation of the papers in this vicinity is very accurate, and no change for the 
better can be made in your statements."— Myeside Favorite, Salem, Mass. letter, Jan. 24, 1879. 

" I have watched carefully the circulation of journals devoted to Science and Mechanics, 
and believe your estimates are about as nearly correct as possible."— ^»He»'(ca«- Journal ojT 
Microscopy, Neir York, letter, Oct. 24, 1878. 

" I notice no errors, and have no improvements to suggest. I have carefully examined." 
—New England Historic and Geneal. Register, Boston, Mass. letter, Oct. 26, 1878. 

"We have examined list sent us and we are pleased to notice that for correctness, in 
regard to papers in this section, it is the closest to the truth of any list that has come under 
our notice."— Mercurj/, Gaielph, Ont., letter, Oct. 30, 1878. 



AMERICAN NEWSPAPER DIRECTORY. 11 

" Have examined your October edition of American Newspaper Directory, and do not dis- 
cover any error." — Newport, Ind., Hoosier State, letter. Vet. 25, 1878. 

" I have examined the new edition of Newspaper Directory, and find all correct so far as 
I have any knowledge of thetacts."— Journal of Spec. Philosophy, St. Louis, Mo., letter, Oct. 
26, 1878. 

" I have examined your advance sheets and find them correct so far as I know."— JZeraZc?, 
Carleton Place, Ont., letter, Oct. 28, 1878. 

" The uniform fairness and accuracy of estimates are agreeable surprises."— ikiu'rencc, 
Kans., Tribune, letter. 

A principal reason why the practice of reporting* tlie circu- 
lation of a newspaper is sometimes so energetically protested 
against, is shrewdly detected and set forth in the following 
extract. 

" Not content with giving the name, the politics, the date of establishment, and the inter- 
vals of publication of the different journals, they give their size, and what is more their 
circulation. We need not point out the value to advertisers of information of this kind, if 
It be only authentic. It is not possible, however, to obtain any complete offlcial data upon 
the subject. The only mode of getting the desiderated particulars is by application to the 
respective newspaper propiietors. Here the difficulty begins. It is not likely that the 
owner of a moribund journal with a few hundred circulation will acknowledge the fact, and 
it is only reasonable that he ivill endeavor, in the absence of a respectable circulation to 
assume or to claim one. It would never answer, therefore, to insert such statements, so 
Messrs. Rowell take the liberty to use their own discretion, and estimate in manj- cases, 
from their own experience or the representations of their correspondents, the extent of the 
circulation of different journals."— ionftow {England) Printing Times, Nov. 15, 1876. 

Papers of the " moribund ' class are not likely to send in 
reports which are actually false. Positive and definite state- 
ments in black and white, duly sio'ned. are almost always true ; 
but when these would not authorize so high a rating as is desked, 
it is customary to dispose of the report with some of the follow- 
ing phrases : 

" We are generally credited with a circulation of ten thousand." 

" Put us down at ten thousand." 

" Compared with our neighbors we ought to have credit for an edition of ten thousand." 

" K our neighbors were honest, we would willingly give a detailed report, but as it is we 
prefer to leave it to you. A quotation below ten thousand will do us great injustice " 

" When a man says that his circulation is 'about' a thousand, or 'about' fifteen hun- 
dred, you may in aircases put down the 'about' as covering a lie of not less than five 
hundred."— Passaic (N. J.) City Herald, Feb. 6, 1875. 

From newspapers which make this sort of circulation report, 
emanate the charges of unfauness and dishonesty on the part 
of the Directory. They haye also the practice of referring to 
past reputation, long established influence, or to a special report, 
duly authenticated by affidavit, of some unusual edition issued 
for a special temporary purpose. This class is not and never can 
be a small one : many will be enabled to recognize them by one 
or two examples : 

In 1869 there was in Philadelphia a paper known as the Home Weekly. Originated by 
Greo. W. Childs, the successful and always honorable proprietor of the Philadelphia Ledger^ 
it naturally had a first rate name. Advertising agents admitted and believed that it had 
the largest circulation of any Philadelphia weekly. Its publishers claimed 50,(X)0 weekly 
issue, charged 50 cents a line for advertisements, and were very stiff. One day it suspended 
publication, and advertisers then learned that since Mr. Childs disposed of the paper 
its circulation had run down steadily, until, for a year before its suspension, its weekly 
issue did not exceed 2,5( copies. 

The New York Weekly Tribune was another case in point. With 180,000 circulation, 
which it at one time actually possessed, it demanded $2 a line for the insertion of advertise- 
ments, which was not an excessive price. On the reputation it had gained, it continued to 
exact $2 a line and to permit its circulation to be quoted at 180,000 weeklj', long after its 
is.sue had dropped off more than seventy-five per cent. 

" This falling off is in most cases the result of throwing overboard the principles on 
which a paper has been established. It would be surprising if it were otherwise— if, for 
instance, the Tribune could retain the proud position at the head of the list which it once 
attained under Horace Greeley, when his principles and practices have been so far ignored 
by his successors. — New York Weekly Witness, June 17. 1875. 

There is no insuperable reason why a paper of this sort may 
not revive and have a new life ; but until it does, advertisers are 



12 GEO- P. ROWELL & GO'S 

entitled to such protection as it may be possible to extend to them. 
It is doubtless too much to expect however that the medium, 
thi'ough which its weakness is exhibited, should be popular with 
the journal thus exposed. Yet newspaper publishers generally 
admit that the truth ought to be made known. A few expres- 
sions of opinion are here given : 

" Why don't those papers frankly state their circulations ? The public has a right to 
know the truth."— Daytow (O.) Journal, May 13, 1876. 

" Unqiiestionably they have a right to publish a Newspaper Directory if they choose to 
do so. No fair-dealing newspaper, no one that is willing to give a dollar's worth for every 
dollar it receives, is likely to object. "—Washington Star, May 18, 1876. 

" Now, Rowell's is an excellent advertising agency, and we have large dealings with 
him; l)ut his estimates of circulation are grossly out of the way." — N. Y. Independent, 
Aug. 19, 1875. 

" Whenever a newspaper complains that its circulation Is underrated, its publisher has 
either failed to furnish the information called for, or has been unable to substantiate his 
statement. That is all there is of it. Mean insinuations as to unworthy motives on the 
part of the publishers of tlie Directory will not alter the facts, nor be likely to mislead the 
public in the premises."— Was/img^ox (D. C.) Star, May 18, 1876. 

"Why some publishers will tell such downright, bald-faced lies in this respect we can't 
imagine. Every advertiser has a right to know it, and when a publisher deceives him he 
should be prosecuted for obtaining money under false pretenses."— IVscMwtbia {Ala.) North 
Alabamian, July 1, 1875. 

" There is an old adage saying that 'You might as well be hanged for (stealing) an old 
sheep as a lamb,' which is exactly applicable to this cane.'"— Denver (Col.) News, Jan. 3, 1878. 

•'We prefer the straightforward, business-like method of doing business, and success- 
ful in pursuing that policy, we cannot be diverted from it." — Jersey City {JS!^. J.) Evening 
Jiiurnal. Sept. 4, 1875. 

"As a rule, attacks come from papers which object to stating their circulation."- 
Claremont (Iowa) Pcople'.'i Paper, Nov. 1, 1877. 

"Papers that k'ep a standing invitation to business men, who desire advertising, to 
examine their books for the purpose of knowing the worth of their money, have no trouble." 
—Ibid. 

"We have no charity for a publisher who will not give his cii'culation."- iVopZes (A'. Y.) 
Record, June 10, 1876. 

" All honest publishers should thank them for their assistance in supporting them above 
the wrongful practices of dishonest rivals. Although tliey have been assailed by the class 
last mentioned, they have persevered in their endeavors, until they have prevailed, and 
their Directory has become the standard authority."— iVawuoo {III.) Independent, June 22, 1877. 

"Advertisers are entitled to know the circulation of papers in which they advertise, 
and papers which propose to give value for money should not object to having their cii*- 
-eulation stated."— Tw/iMa/inocA; (Pa.) Republican, March 14, 1879. 

No question has given the publishers of the Directory 
more perplexity than to decide upon a form in which a cu'cula- 
tion statement should be written, and which would ensure that 
the meaning conveyed should express the fact about the news- 
paper issues, and that the person making the report should have 
in mind the same fact upon which the editor of the Directory 
supposes that he is receiving a report. Those who have given 
the matter no thought, would be sui'prised at the number of 
apparently truthful statements which are hkely to mislead. 

There is a theory that an average familj^ consists of five persons ; that the whole familj' 
reads the paper ; therefore a newspaper going to 1,0(K) families has 5,000 readers ; conse- 
quently its publisher reports to the Directory office, "My circulation is 5,000." 

A New York paper, which used regularly a two-page supplement, maintained, and fur- 
nished a printer's certificate and affidavit, that its issue was fifty per cent, greater that it 
was in fact : explaining, when the error was discovered by Inquiries instituted from the 
Directory office, that each paper was a paper and a half, and that as a consequence it 
ought to have credit for 1,5(X) on every 1,000 subscribers. Ever since that transaction the 
paper which was a party to it has manifested the utmost contempt for the circulation 
reports in the Directory. 

A weekly of large size, printed on coarse paper, issuing frequent supplements, premium 
novellettes, and an occasional heavy edition for campaign purposes, exhibits its receipts for 
postage paid by the pound, thereby leading some to suppose that its circulation is greater 
than that of another which really issues four or six times as many of a smaller size on 
lighter and finer paper. 

A ream of paper consists of 480 sheets. Two reams therefore do not furnish a thousand 
sheets, but they do constitute what is known as a printer's thousand. 

A prominent agricultural paper for years quoted its circulation at double the figure it 
was •entitled to, by counting impressions. Two impressions are required to make one paper, 
but advertisers, not being printers, were not expected to think of this. 

Notwithstanding all the difficulties wliich have arisen, the 
publishers of the Directory find that a great majority of news-

papers tell the actual tiTith about the editions printed, and that 
the form of report, which is most objected to by such as would 
disguise the facts, is a simple statement like that which follows ; 
introduced here that every one may observe its simplicity :

It is a curious truth, that since this form of report has been 
adopted, no more than thi'ee statements based upon it, have come 
to hand, of the accuracy of which the editor of the Directory 
has had doubts. 



14 (J,[:0. p. KOVVEI.L & GO'S 

How well the publishers of the Directory have succeeded in 
making it the authority ujDon newspaper matters is known to 
every one. No Advertising Agency undertakes to do business 
without a copy at hand for constant reference. Every man, 
representing a newspaper, canvassing for advertisements, tells 
with what certainty he may rely, that each prominent advertiser 
will take the volume down and proceed to measui-e by it his 
statements of cii'culation. Its popularity with the Press has 
been even greater than with Advertisers : a single issue has con- 
tained upwards of twenty-six hundi'ed advertisements, amounting 
to an aggregate in excess of $50,000, while expressions of good 
opinion and acknowledgments of merit, have been as forty to one, 
compared with any unfavorable criticism.

For twelve years the Directory office has been a receiving 
point for claims, charges and expressions of opinion conceiTiing 
circulations. Successful publishers, who have something to gain 
by a comparison, are prompt in sending reports. Careful consid- 
eration of accusations, suggestions and complaints, have made 
the cu'culation quotations in each succeeding volume, approach 
nearer to absolute coiTectness, and when the volume has made 
its regular appeai'ance for another decade, many who, in the past, 
have had no good word for it, will praise the independence and 
public spmt which produced a book so valuable for the protection 
it aifords an honest publisher when in competition with one of a 
different class. 

"From the completeness of their arrangements, and the perfection with which all the 
parts of their business are worked, it may be considered doubtful whether any other firm 
would have the means of preparing such a volume, which should be as free f x'om error as 
comprehensive in details."— iV. Y. Times, June 14, 1875. 

Geo. P. Rowell & Co. deserve the best thanks of the advertising community for their 
efforts to prevent advertisers from being imposed on by unscrupulous publishers. Every 
honest publisher will also thank them for the aid they have afforded them in maintaining 
their competition for business by fair means, against the fraudulent practices of dishonest 
rivals. Messrs. Rowell & Co., alone of Newspaper Directory publishers, have had the courage 
to undertake the task of discriminating among the statements of newspapers, and to face 
the hostility which such a course was sure to excite among those who profited by misrepre- 
sentation. Notwithstanding the " crushing " articles that from time to time have been hurled 
at them, sometimes by parties who ought to have known better, they have persevered in their 
course, and they have had their reward. Their publication has taken the first place as the 
standard authority among American Newspaper Directories, and a reference book for every 
large advertiser and advertising agency in this country."- Je7'se|/ City Journal, May 22, 1877. 



EXPLANATIONS. 



The population is from census of 1870, or more recent 
estimate of resident postmasters or publishers — the latter case 
indicated by a dagger ("j") — c. h. stands for court house, county 
seat — m. for miles — pop. for poi3ulation — r. for river, and Rd. 
for railroad. 



The cu-culation rating has been omitted in cases in which a 
description of the publications did not appear in the last 
edition of the Directory. 



Where publications are bought and circulated by persons 
and firms that advertise therein by means of descriptive articles 
in the reading columns, or are 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 cii'culations almost entu-ely 
gratuitous, they are termed " advertising sheets," and no circu- 
lation given. 

Wliere no advertisements are taken for a publication, the 
matter of cii'culation, being unimportant, has been omitted, and 
the fact stated thus: "Does not insert advertisements." 



tt 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 secui'e any 
late issue, therefore no particulars are given. 



Wliere italic matter follows the description of a publication, 
it is by order of the pubhsher, and is paid for as an advertise- 
ment. The publishers of the Directory assume no responsibility 
for any statements made in italic type. 

The Directory is reprinted annually. The work upon its 
revision proceeds all the time. Advertisers, Publishers and the 
general public are besought to lend their aid by calling attention 
to any shortcomings. The book can never be made perfect, but 
no pains will be spared to sustain the position which it has 
attained in the good opinion of advertisers and publishers. 
Assistance to that end is earnestly desii'ed. 



From Publishers of Newspapers who furnish information 
upon which the report of circulation may be based, a mertioran- 
dum is asked of the issues for each number of the paper for the 
three preceding months. Persons sending such reports are de- 
sired to be definite and exact as to dates and figures and to 
avoid giving totals and averages.

report, and gires full attention to railroad, 
commercial, manufacturing and farming in- 
terests. Consequently it circulates largely 
among the German business men of the North- 
western States. It maintains an expenditure 
for German neivs, at least four times as great 
as that incurred bi/ any other Germayi jour- 
nal on the continent, and therefore also sus- 
tains a preponderating circulation among 
every class of the German people. Its circu- 
lation i,s so firmly based upon its merits as a 
newspape,r that the competition of others, 
instead of lessening, only serves to increase 
its support by the people at large. During its 
career it has gradually acqu ired an unexcelled 
moral influence, as well as value in respect to 
advertising, among the Germans of the West. 
Its excellence is realized by people in general, 
and not alone by any particular class. In 
enterprise and quickness in laying before its 
readers every item of news tliat will interest 
them it has no superior, even among the great 
dailies of the English press. U(Jon every 
topic that interests the public mind the fullest 
intelligence is given, and the most able opin- 
ions are expressed in its columns.  In fact, 
notliing that should escape the eye of a news- 
X)aper, in the truest and broadest sense of the 
term, ever evades its vigilance; and with re- 
gard to everything that should be done by a

deavors to furnish the best paper of its class

cedes that the "Neue Freie Presse" worthily
