PREFACE. 



/ 

In this edition of the American Newspaper Directory,. 
13,302 newspapers and periodicals in the United States, the 
Territories and Canada are reiDorted. This is a net gain of 
precisely 1,500 during the last twelve months, and exhibits an 
increase of 5,518 over the aggregate number published in the- 
same area ten years since. Excluding the Territories and Can- 
ada, the total for the United States alone exceeds the corre- 
sponding total for 1883 by 1,314:. The present total for the 
Territories (455) shows an excess of 131 over the number re- 
ported a year ago. "While the State of New York still leads all 
other States with regard to the number of papers issued within 
its limits (which grew during the year from 1,399 to 1,523), a 
great general increase has occurred in other quarters. Illinois,, 
for instance, now shows 1,009 papers in place of last year's total 
of 904 ; Indiana has increased from 477 to 542 ; Iowa from 560' 
to 651, while Missouri issues 604 instead of the 523 reported in 
1883. Michigan publishes 540 in lieu of the 474 in existence 
last year ; Florida papers have increased from 59 to 73 ; Georgia 
has 201 instead of 191 ; Ohio now issues 844 instead of 738 ; 
Massachusetts, 501 instead of 438, and other States show a ratio 
of increase more or less in sympathy with that already noted. 
In fact, there has been an increase in every State but one. 

The number of dailies in the United States and Territories 
has grown from 1,062 to 1,178 ; including Canada, there are now 
1,254. The weeklies in the United States, the Territories and 
Canada have increased from 9,062 to 9,928 ; in the United 
States and Territories alone they have grown from 8,635 to 
9,492. A great increase in the number of monthlies is also- 
shown; the total having changed from 1,091 to 1,499. In the- 
number of tri-weeklies there has been a decrease. 



EXPLANATIONS. 



The population figures are from the census of 1880 or from 
more recent estimates by resident publishers or postmasters. 
'^Publications bought and cii'culated mainly by persons and 
fii^s advertising therein by means of descriptive articles xn the 
reading columns ; or devoted to the (almost) exclusive advei- 
tising of any particular person or firm, or the advertismg ot 
any Certain idea ; or estabhshed solely as advertismg schemes ; 
embracing a class with cu-culations almost entii-ely gratuitous ; 
are termed "advertising sheets," and no cu-culation rating is 
given. 

In cases in which no advertisements are taken for a pub- 
hcation, the cu-culation rating, being unimportant, has been 
omitted: and the fact stated thus: "does not insert advertise- 
ments." 

From Publishers of Newspapers who fm-nish information 
upon which the cu-culation rating may be based, ajnemoran- 
dum is asked of the actual issues for each number of the paper 
for the preceding three months. Each publisher senduig such 
a report is desu-ed to make it as definite and exact, as to dates 
and figm-es, as he would wish to requii-e from a rival pubhsher,— 
were a comparison, based upon the two reports, to be instituted 
between the two papers. 

tt means that the Editor of the Dikectoky at the time of 
soino- to press had no certain evidence that the paper so marked 
had suspended publication, but being unable to secui-e any late 

issue, no particulars could be given. 

Small engravings of newspaper buildings on solid 
metal bodies, occupying space of one inch m length 
or width, and no more, subject to approval on inspec- 
tion, are inserted with the description of the paper 
without any charge. Messrs. Crosscup & West, No. 
702 Chestnut street, Philadelphia, are good parties 
to furnish the engravings required, and have made all, 
or nearly all, which now appear in the book. 
The Directory is reissued annually. The work upon its 
revision proceeds all the time. Advertisers, Pubhshers and the 
pubhc are besought to lend theii- aid by calling attention 
to its shortcomings. The book can never be made perfect, but 
no pains wHl be spared to sustain the position which it has 
attained in the good opinion of advertisers and pubhshers.
