PREFACE. 



When the first edition of the " Canadian Newspaper 
Directory " was issued in 1892 the publishers were congratulated 
upon producing- the most correct and comprehensive newspaper 
handbook of Canadian journalism ever presented to the public. 
In that issue over 200 more newspapers were reported than 
were given in the same year by any of the American Newspaper 
Directories which assumed to cover Canadian territory. The 
details were admittedly more accurate than those of any other 
Directory, while no previous compilation embraced a gazetteer 
of each town containing a newspaper office. The history of 
Canadian journalism was also the most complete that has yet 
been published, and has formed the ground work of every 
historical sketch of Canadian newspapers that has appeared 
since that time, though it is not in every case that due credit 
has been given to this work. 

The Directory, though the best of its kind yet issued, and 
though unanimously praised by the leading Canadian news- 
papers, was, we regret to say, not a financial success, and for 
this reason we have not felt justified in getting out another 
edition until now. In addition to the financial question, there 
were mechanical difficulties in the way, as no printing office in 
Montreal was equipped with a sufficient quantity of type and 
material of the kind required to get out the lists with the rapidity 
we desired. We have now, however, overcome this by the 
purchase of an outfit of type especially selected for the work, 
and we hope with the increased support of those who so warmly 
approved of the first edition, to issue it regularly hereafter. 
With our present outfit, we shall be able to keep the type 
standing, so that the cost of future editions may be somewhat 
reduced. 

Among the new features of this issue will be found four 
newspaper maps, covering the whole Dominion, and especially 
engraved for this work. This, we believe, is the first instance 
in which maps have been used in connection with a newspaper 
handbook to give special prominence to the newspaper towns. 
Maps have been issued, with other Newspaper Directories but 
these were general geographical maps. The present maps give 



8 THE CANADIAN NEWSPAPER DIRECTORY. 

in a very prominent way the name and correct location of every 
city, town and village, in which one or more newspapers 
are published. The advantage of such a series of maps to 
the general advertiser, as well as to the journalist, will be 
readily appreciated. The advertiser who wishes to reach a 
given territory, or a certain class ot the community, will see at 
once what local mediums cover the field. For instance, if it is 
desired to reach mariners or vessel owners, the advertiser may 
tell at a glance the number of papers located on the lake or 
seaports of the Dominion, and may make his selection accord- 
ingly, and so with regard to any branch of trade which is 
localized in certain geographical areas, while it will be equally 
advantageous to the advertiser who wishes to confine his 
attention to any one province or section of a province, as well 
as to any one class of people. 

The statistics, as given in the first edition, 'have been 
brought down to the latest date, both in the gazetteers of the 
provinces, and other portions of the work. 

In conclusion, we have to acknowledge the generous 
support given by the patrons of the Canadian Newspaper 
Directory, both in the first and present editions, and it is a 
pleasure to be able to say that many newspaper proprietors, 
who before our first edition doubted the expediency of a purely 
Canadian Newspaper Directory, and questioned its chances 
of success, have since shown their belief in the value of the 
work, and their confidence that the present publishers are 
able to give them the most reliable reference book that can be 
compiled. This confidence will be an inspiration to us to 
maintain the high character which has been accorded to the 
work by both publishers and public.

DUTY OF THE PRESS. 

(/'row a lecture before I'ictoria L'liirersity by J. -.9. Wt'llison .) 

It is, however, not too much to say that the press is still on trial, and 
that if it fail to show capacity for self-discipline and self-regulation there 
must arise a movement for regulation by public authority. In truth, in the 
New York State Legislature there has just been introduced a statute for 
the regulation of the cartoon, and there is a rising public revolt against 
two or three of the great New York journals ; against their news methods, 
however, rather than against their, editorial utterances or general public 
policy. There can be no doubt that a newspaper despotism is one of the 
most insolent and brutal of all despotisms. The journalist who hunts a 
private citizen under the influence of a mere personal malice is as pitiful a 
creature as a bully who flogs a child. But one doubts if this tyranny can 
safely be suppressed by public authority. The remedy will probably be 
found in public opinion rather than in public regulation. The press with 
all its faults has been the very voice of progress, and under its protecting 
arm liberty has been sheltered from many a storm and civilization steadied 
for many a triumphal advance. If now and then journalism develops a 
ruffian or a tyrant it is in the power of public opinion to put him down, and 
it is not necessary in the process to cripple or destroy one of the best and 
most beneficient of the agencies of civilization. Any legislation that could 
be enacted to restrain the license or moderate the brutality of the press 
would be as likely to be used to check exposure of abuses and to prevent 
the uncovering of conspiracies against the common-wealth as for the pro- 
tection of the private citizen against the malice and venom of guerilla jour- 
nalists. As I have said, the dogma of editorial infallibility is a relic of a 
more credulous age. It must become more and more the habit of the press 
to reason, rather than to dogmatize, to present all phases of a question to 
the people, to stimulate independent research and hard free thinking, to 
develop more original voices in order that we may have fewer feeble vapid 
echoes throughout the community. There is nothing more damaging to 
real independence of thought and utterance than the ancient tradition that 
a public journal must declare a positive and irrevocable opinion upon every 
political, commercial, social and scientific question that arises for discus- 
sion, and that the first word of an impulsive editor must be (he last word of 
an enlightened community. It should be the business of the press to steady 
rather than to inflame public opinion, and even at the risk of darling popu- 
larity, which may, perhaps, count heavily in the advertising department, 
refuse to run at the heels of every momentary clamour and make revenue 
out of the passions and prejudices of a community. The great fault of the 
Canadian press has been, that, it was political rather than national, and one 
of the most hopeful signs for Canada at this hour is that in the main it tends 
to become national rather than political. Irrational devotion to party can 
hardly be consistent with rational devotion to country. 



26 THE CANADIAN NEWSPAPER DIRECTORY. 



THE BUSINESS 

OF THE MODERN 

NEWSPAPER ADVERTISING 
AGENCY. 



ITS UTILITY TO BOTH THE ADVERTISER 
AND THE PUBLISHER. 



First and foremost and all the time it is the business of an 
advertising agency to promote and facilitate newspaper adver- 
tising. 

To be of valuable service to the advertiser an agency must 
have first, a high standing with the publishers, a reputation for 
honesty and integrity, the name of living up to its promises and 
of paying its accounts promptly. 

It must possess the experience of years in dealing with 
the newspapers of the Country, must know the rock bottom 
rates and the circulation, as nearly as may be, of every public- 
ation, must be informed concerning its growing or declining 
popularity, the character of its readers, the territory it covers, 
its political complexion, the peculiarity of its make up, method 
of doing business, etc., etc. Special knowledge on all these 
points is absolutely necessary in order to intelligently determine 
the fitness of a publication for the advertising of a particular 
article. 

The modern advertising agency must have a complete and 
thorough organization in which all the departments work har- 
moniously toward the common end of rendering a prompt and 
efficient service to the advertiser. It must employ specialists to 



THE CANADIAN NEWSPAPER DIRECTORY. 29 

originate, write up and illustrate, bright, attractive adver- 
tisements for every line of business. 

It must be in touch with the best printers, artists, en- 
gravers, electrotypers, etc., in order to secure for its clients the 
best possible work and turn it out promptly. 

It must have a complete, up-to-date method of sending out 
instruction orders and changes of copy to the newspapers, a 
perfect system of checking and looking after every insertion of 
every advertisement in every paper during the life of each con- 
tract and a clear and comprehensive method of rendering ac- 
counts to the advertiser and furnishing him with vouchers, 
duplicates of checking records, etc., to show that he has had 
every insertion for which he has been charged and that the 
advertising has been inserted in accordance with the 
contract. 

THE AGENCY AND THE PUBLISHER. 

A few publishers are in the habit of complaining that the 
n advertising agency works entirely in the interest of the 
.ser and against the interest of the publisher. If the 
uest interests of the publisher consist in securing the highest 
possible price from the advertiser, without any regard to the 
actual value given, and in having the foreign advertisement 
stand for the whole year, without change, in the most obscure 
part of the paper, and in being paid for the full term no matter 
how many insertions have been missed, then it may be truly 
urged that the advertising agency interferes somewhat with 
these interests. 

It may be reasonably affirmed however that the best interests 
of a newspaper consist in so dealing with every advertiser as to 
make his advertising profitable and thus secure the continuance 
of his business. It is just here that the agency comes in and 
not only develops and secures the advertising for the news-- 
paper but helps the publisher to give good value for the money 
and then sees that he gets the money. 

To begin at the beginning the advertising agent scents from 
afar the advent of a new article, the success of which depends 
on the way in which it is placed before the consumer; he inter- 
views the manufacturer at once, and explains to him the advan- 
tages of newspaper advertising by which possible purchasers of his 



30 THE CANADIAN NEWSPAPER DIRECTORY. 

product, may be made aware of its peculiar qualities. As 
a rule a producer of an article, if he is not an experienced 
advertiser, knows as little about newspaper advertising as he 
does about liquified air and to him it is a quantity quite as 
uncertain. 

It may take the advertising" agent weeks, or even months 
to make the benefits of newspaper advertising sufficiently clear 
to the manufacturer to induce him to even consider an estimate. 
Without the advertising agency, he might go along for years 
before realizing the fact that he must use the columns of the 
newspapers before he can ever expect to have a very large sale 
for his article and then the difficulties of mapping out a plan of 
advertising, writing up the matter, and making the contracts 
with the newspapers, which he would have to select at random, 
would probably deter him from taking up the matter at all. Or, 
what is more likely, he would fall into the hands of the adver- 
tising fakirs, who would sell him " valuable (?) spaces" in 
special editions, "covering the whole civilized country", in 
maps, albums of celebrities, and schemes innumerable and then 
when his money was spent and the sale of his article had not 
increased he, thinking he had made a test of the value of adver- 
tising, would condemn advertising as a failure. 

On the other hand however, the general advertising agency, 
working on the plan that the results of the advertising must 
show a profit to this advertiser in order that the business may 
be permanent, is likely to succeed in interesting him at the start 
by laying before him a well developed and comprehensive plan 
for covering the whole country or any particular district at a 
minimum of cost. The agency prepares a series of bright, 
attractive advertisements, illustrated or otherwise, places the 
contracts with the right newspapers, at the right prices, secures 
a good position in each paper and starts that advertiser upon 
his road to success. 

In order to facilitate matters for the publisher, electrotypes 
or stereotypes are prepared and sent to him, thereby doing away 
with the expense of typesetting and the liability of mistakes in 
copy. Definite instructions are given in order that the adver- 
tisers' wishes may be carried out with the least possible trouble 
and at the end of every month or quarter the publisher gets a 
complete statement, showing in detail every dollar that is due 
him for the work of that term for each of the many advertisers 
in hand and one cheque to balance the account.

This method of payment probably applies to only one 
agency in Canada and it is a well known fact that the majority 
of newspapers throughout the country, finding" these statements 
always correct, depend upon them entirely and keep no other ac- 
counts, so far as A. McKim & Go's Agency is concerned. A point 
in this connection not fully appreciated by all publishers, is that 
many other agencies, even those who have a reputation for 
very prompt payment, pay only for what they are billed, if the 
amount is not higher than it should be, if items that should be 
included are left out, they pay the bill without rectifying the 
publishers error. 

A. McKim & Go's method is to pay promptly for all adver- 
tising that has been properly inserted whether it has been billed 
for or not. Even when the advertiser fails to pay his account 
to this firm, the newspapers are paid just the same. 

This agency is practically the pioneers of the Newspaper 
Advertising Agency business in Canada, at least, it was the first 
to be established upon a systematic basis and make it a success, 
securing the entire confidence of both advertisers and publishers 
throughout the Dominion. 

Mr. Anson McKim came to Montreal in 1878 to open a local 
agency of the Toronto "Mail". This he conducted for ten 
years with remarkable success. During these ten years he 
assisted in developing the advertising idea among Montreal 
advertisers to such an extent that the opening of an Advertising 
Agency seemed an absolute necessity and in January 1899 the 
present firm started in the Advertising Agency business, with 
Mr. A. McKim as the sole proprietor. 

Notwithstanding this change in relationship the publishers 
of the Toronto Mail desired him to retain the special agency of 
that paper, which has been continued to the present date. 

The business has been a success from the start and its 
progress has been uniformly upward until the name of 
A. McKim & Co. is as familiar to the advertiser as that of his own 
special article and to the newspaper publisher as the heading of 
his paper. 

Honest dealing and prompt payments have been the key 
notes of this agency from the first and there is probably not a 
business firm in the Dominion enjoying the confidence of its 
customers to a greater extent. 

The Newspapers throughout the whole country, while they

frequently complain of the low prices paid, are unanimous in their 
expression of confidence in the integrity of the firm and approval 
of the systematic way in which the whole business is conducted, 
especially of the prompt and satisfactory manner in which 
accounts are paid even though bills have not been rendered. 

Accompanying this article are some photographic views, 
showing the premises occupied by A. McKim & Co. 




LIBEL LAW. 



" The history of the law of libel, than which none is more interesting; 
says John King, Q.C. in his " History of Newspaper Libel " furnishes abun- 
dant evidence of the educative influence exerted by the press itself. There 
is scarcely an amendment that cannot be traced to this source. It is seen 
in all of those legislative changes which we have been considering, and in 
a long line of leading cases which have settled the law as it is, and occa- 
sionaly suggested what should be. Reform has not always come when 
urged, or when most needed : it has hastened slowly ; but enlightened 
public opinion has been steadily on its side, and it has never wanted a leader. 
There is a fact, known to very few, in the life and labors of an old Canadian 
journalist which the writer may be excused for mentioning. It should interest 
all who have sympathised with the early struggles for a free press in Canada. 
A few years ago, in the course of a newspaper controversy which arose in 
regard to the story of the Upper Canada Rebellion, and the personages who 
figured therein, the writer in looking through the papers of the late William 
Lyon Mackenzie, came upon a draft parliamentary bill " for more effectually 
securing the liberty of the press." It was in manuscript, in Mackenzie's 
plain, bold hand-writing, and displayed marks of frequent revision in order 
apparently to render its phraseology acceptable as a piece of parliamentary 
drafting. From the date which it bore and subsequent inquiries verified 
the fact the bill had been drawn years in advance of any agitation for 
those salutary provisions of Lord Campbell's Act, with a number of addi- 
tional clauses that would have rendered that famous British act more effec- 
tive, but it also contained the substance of other reforms which were after- 
ward engrafted on the Canadian law of libel. The bill had not been laid 
before the legislature by reason, as far as we could discover, of the stirring 
events which drove its author into exile but there can be no doubt that, had 
a good, instead of an evil star shone upon his path, his libel bill would have 
been the precursor, in our old Upper Canada House of Assembly, of the 
great measure which, during his term of expatriation, was placed upon the 
statute books and became the law of England." 

To Mr. Chas. Lindsay, author of " Life of William Lyon Mackensie " 
(who by the way was the owner of the draft referred to above) we are 
indebted for a fact equally worthy of note, but not yet recorded in any 
Canadian history. Mackenzie was chairman of a committee of the Upper 
Canada Legislature appointed to look into the banking regulations and 
suggest improvements in the existing banking system, and in that capacity 
drew up a report making ten chief recommendations, for the Reform of 
the Banking system. None of these recommendations were acted upon 
at the time but since then at different periods one after another of the 
reforms suggested have been carried out till all are now incorporated in the 
Canadian Banking Act except two.

CANADA AS A FIELD FOR UNITED STATES 
ADVERTISERS. 

Statistics from an article by Hugh Graham, published in "Pro- 
fitable Advertising" Dec. 



During the fiscal year ending June 30, 1898, our tariff gave a preference 
of 12)4 per cent., now 25 per cent., in favor of British goods ; but despite 
the fact, the imports of American goods entered for actual consumption in 
Canada were $78,263,504, as compared with $58,574,024 in the fiscal year 
1896, the last year of the old tariff; that is, the Canadian imports of Ame- 
rican merchandise increased by $19,689,480, or, in other words, about $4 
per capita of the population. In the same time, their imports from all coun- 
tries, of goods entered for actual consumption in the country, increased by 
only $22,294,442, and their imports from Great Britain for this period show 
a falling off of $973,037 since July i last. The preference is 25 per cent., 
and this may cause a change in respect to British imports. It may be well 
to note, that $8,562,434 of the American increase was on dutiable goods. 

A country's productive powers are a measure of its ability to buy and 
pay for goods of other nations. Canada bought more goods last year than 
formerly, but still comparing the same periods, she has shown an even 
larger increase in her productive powers. A high-water mark in exports 
was made in 1896, but those of 1898 exceed them by $38,461,918, the values 
for the respective periods being $121,013,852 and $i52i485,77o. Great 
Britain took $79,586,605 more of our products in 1898 than in 1896, and the 
United States $9,402,786 more. The United States Consul General in Mon- 
treal, Gen. John J. Bittinger, has sent to his government at Washington a 
report which should prove profitable reading to all merchants desirous of 
extending their trade in Canada. The Canadian trade and navigation re- 
turns for the present year will likewise bear study. In his report Mr. 
Bittinger takes ground in favor of reciprocity, pointing out that in order 
that Canadians should purchase more freely in the United States, they 
must be able to sell there also. He gives the following table of goods im- 
ported from Great Britain to Canada, the import of which in 1897 was less 
'than in 1893, while the import of the same class of goods from the United 
States exceeds that of 1893.

ONTARIO. 39 



PROVINCE OF ONTARIO. 



Ontario is the most populous and wealthy of all the provinces of 
Canada. It has a land area of 219,650 square miles and a water area of 
2,350 sq. miles ; with a population at the census of 1891 of 2, 114,321. The 
present population is estimated at two and half million souls. It has 42 
counties besides several districts as large as some European states, out of 
which future counties will be formed. The province has 13 incorporated 
cities, 99 incorporated towns and about 2,500 villages. Its facilities for 
railway and water communication combined are not surpassed by any 
division of the American continent. The River St. Lawrence and the great 
lakes, Ontario, Erie, Huron, and Superior touch it on its entire southern 
and western boundaries, while from the " Height of land," which forms 
the back bone of the province, many fine rivers flow down to those lakes 
on the south, or to James Bay and Hudsons Bay on the north. No 
important county is unreached by a railway, and out of a total of 16,687 
miles of railway in Canada 6,647 miles or about 40 per cent are in Ontario. 
In the extent and variety of its agricultural, dairy and fruit products 
Ontario leads the Dominion, while its wealth of gold, nickel and other 
valuable minerals is proving to be greater than was ever anticipated by 
geologists ten years ago. A census of the live stock of the province in 
1897 showed 613,670 head of horses, 2,182,326 head of cattle, 1,690,350 
head of sheep and 1,284,963 head of swine, while some items of the agricul- 
tural products in the same year were as follows: 28,856,152 bushels of 
wheat, 12,021,779 bushels of barley, 86,318,128 bushels of oats, 13,867,093 
bushels of peas, 7,000,000 bushels of other grain, 16,100,797 bushels of 
potatoes, 68,297, 148 bushels of turnips, and 3,811,518 tons of hay. It is 
noteworthy that the average yield per acre of crops in Ontario, though not 
so high as in Manitoba and the N.W.T., is greater than in any state -in the 
American Union, the comparison holding good with all kinds of grain, and 
with all states, except one kind of grain in one state Kansas which pro- 
duces a higher average in oats- The production of cheese in 1897 was 
164,220,699 Ibs. and of butter 11,453,351 Ibs. In 1897 Ontario had 5,669 
public schools besides 340 Roman Catholic separate schools and 6 protes- 
tant separate schools, 105 kindergartens and 18 night schools, with 
441,157 pupils in the public schools, 41,620 in the R. C. separate schools, 
543 in the protestant separate schools, 10,693 in the Kindergartens, and 
i ,406 in the night schools. The number of public school teachers was 
8,376. In higher education Ontario has a provincial normal school for 
the training of teachers, two other normal schools, two model schools, an 
art and industrial school, two technical schools, 37 collegiate institutes 
with 12,208 pupils, and 130 high schools with 24,390 pupils. It has also 
103 public free libraries and 401 public subscription libraries. The pro- 
vince had in 1897, 3,198 post offices through which passed 65,500,000 
letters, 16,750,000 post cards, i ,785,000 registered letters, 4,150,000 free 
letters, 14,825,000 transient newspapers, circulars, etc., and 653,724 money 
orders. Ontario is represented in the Dominion parliament by 24 senators 
and 92 members of the House of Commons. Its local government is 
carried on by a single chamber having 94 members. Capital, Toronto.

PROVINCE OF QUEBEC. 



The Province of Quebec, the cradle of civilization in Canada, has a 
history more abounding in romance and episode than that of any other 
division of the American continent. Its discovery dates from 1534, and its 
regular colonization from the beginning of the iyth century. From this 
colony went forth the hardy French pioneers, who penetrated through the 
wilds surrounding the Great Lakes, into the plains and prairies of the 
unknown West and North West, and down the valley of the Mississippi to 
the Gulf of Mexico, and whose names still survive in many a town, lake 
and river, of Western Canada and the United States. The scenery of 
Quebec, along the St. Lawrence and Saguenay to Lake St. John and the 
regions beyond, and is year by year attracting visitors from all parts of the 
continent and from Europe. The wealth of Quebec in minerals is proving 
to be very great, the asbestos mines, among others, being now acknow- 
ledged to be the richest in the world. Quebec is penetrated in every part 
by rivers and streams, and the amount of water power still unutilized is 
inconceivable to those who have not explored the province. The facilities 
thus afforded for mill operations point out the province as a great future 
seat of manufacturing, especially in paper and pulp making, these water 
powers being interspersed among vast tracts of spruce, poplar, hemlock 
and other pulp woods, unequalled in the world for their qualities for pulp 
and paper making. By an Order in Council passed in 1896 the northern 
boundaries have been extended to the shores of Hudson Bay, the land area 
of Quebec being now 344,050 sq. miles, and the water area 3,300 sq. miles. 
The population at the last census in 1891, was 1,488,586, and is now 
estimated at 1,650,000. It has 66 counties, five districts, 8 cities, 101 towns, 
and over 1,500 villages. A dual system of education exists in the province, 
there beirig a board of Roman Catholic school commissioners and a board 
of Protestant school commissioners. The R. C. Board has under its charge 
4,208 elementary schools, 475 model schools, 138 academies, 2 normal 
schools, 1 8 classical colleges and 2 universities, these institutions having 
267,012 pupils of all grades. Under the Protestant school commissioners, 
there are 907 elementary schools, 49 model schools, 27 academies, i normal 
school, 3 classical colleges and 2 universities, these schools, etc., having 
39,155 pupils of all grades. Besides these, there are 7 non-sectarian schools 
of arts and manufactures, 5 schools of agriculture and dairying and other 
miscellaneous institutions of learning. Quebec sends to the Dominion 
parliament 65 members, and is represented there by 24 senators, the same 
number as for Ontario. Its provincial legislature has two Houses, the 
Upper House, or legislative council, having 24 members, and the Legis- 
lative Assembly 65 members. The provincial capital is Quebec city. The 
province has 1,664 post offices, through which in 1897 there passed 
26,850,000 letters, 525,000 free letters, 865,000 registered letters, 4,750,000 
post cards, 127,095 money orders and 4,500,000 transient newspapers, 
circulars and books, exclusive of newspapers issued from publication offices.

the province, see other parts of this zt'ork,

Montreal first began to be settled by Europeans in 1542 ; and ex- 
actly one century later the spot destined to be the city was consecrat- 
ed with due solemities, commended to the " Queen of Angels," and 
called I'ille-Marie, a name which it retained for a long period. In 
1760 it was taken by the English. Early in the present century 
vessels of more than three hundred tons could not ascend to Mont- 
real, and its foreign trade was carried on by small brigs and barges. 
In 1809 the first steam vessel, " The Accommodation," built by the 
Hon. John Molson, made a trip to Quebec. She had berths for 
twenty passengers. Years of industry and intelligence, enterprise 
and labor have produced a mighty contrast. Ocean steamers of 
4,000 to 10,000 tons and ships from 700 to 2,000, from all parts of the 
world, now lie alongside of the wharves in the harbor, which are 
not equalled in Canada in point of extent, accommodation, approach 
and cleanliness. Montreal was formerly the capital of Canada, but 
in April, 1849, a political mob burned the Parliament Buildings and 
the seat of government was in consequence removed to Quebec, sub- 
sequently to Toronto and finally to Ottawa. In July, 1852, a destruc- 
tive fire laid waste a large part of the city, burning i , 108 houses and 
destroying property valued at $1,363,264. Montreal is noted for its 
charitable and religious institutions, some of which were founded 
nearly 250 years ago. The oldest church in the city is the Bonse- 
cours (Roman Catholic), it was erected in 1658 ; was burnt in 1764, 
but rebuilt in 1771. The city is abundantly supplied with pure wa- 
ter, and is lighted by electricity and gas. The principal buildings 
are the City Hall, Court House, Post Office, Custom House, Board 
of Trade, Seminary of St. Sulpice, Convent of Notre Dame, General 
Hospital, Royal Victoria Hospital, Grey Nunnery, Montreal College, 
McGill University Buildings, Laval University, Presbyterian, Me- 
thodist and Congregational Colleges, Young Men's Christian Associa 
tion building, St. Mary's College, Montreal Diocesan College, 
Academy of Music, Queen's Hall, Theatre Royal, Her Majesty's 
Theatre, Theatre Francais, Victoria Skating Rink, Deaf and Dumb 
Asylum, Mechanics' Hall, etc. It has thirteen markets, including 
Bonsecours, a magnificent building with a lofty dome, fronting on the 
River. It has eighty churches and five synagogues. Its parks and 
squares are numerous, the chief being Mount Royal Park, covering 
430 acres, and affording from the "Look out" one- of the finest 
urban views of the continent. Montreal is the head of ocean naviga- 
tion on the St. Lawrence, and its shipping trade is the largest of any 
city in Canada, the annual exports amounting to about $30,000,000 
and the imports about $45,000,000. It is the head port of eight 
steamship companies, one of which (the Allan line) is among the 
largest in the world. Over 6,000 vessels arrive annually during the 
season of navigation. Its granite docks extend seven or eight miles 
up and down the river. Montreal has about two-thirds of the bank- 
ing capital of Canada, no less than eight of its chartered banks 
having their head offices here. The Victoria Bridge across the River 
St. Lawrence at Montreal, was the largest tubular bridge in the 
world, being 9,184 feet in length. It contains 24 spans of 242 feet 
each and one (the centre 60 feet above the river) of 330 feet, and it 
cost nearly $7,000,000. This bridge has now been replaced by a 
double track steel bridge laid on the old piers. The educational 
means of the city comprise a university (McGill) with faculties of law, 
arts, science, medicine, and veterinary science, and theological 
colleges connected with the Methodist, Congregational, Presbyte- 
rian, Church of England, and Roman Catholic churches ; a high 
school, two normal schools^ and a number of private and public 
schools and several classical and scientific academies, also a medical

In the grandeur of its site and surroundings, in the strength of its 
fortifications, in the extent and romance of its history, and the 
hospitality and kindness of its citizens, Quebec stands supreme

QUEBEC. 141 

among' the cities of America. The city has a remarkably pictu- 
resque situation between the two rivers at the north-eastern ex- 
tremity of a narrow but elevated tableland, which for about eight 
miles forms the left bank of the River St. Lawrence. Cape Diamond, 
the extremity of the tableland, is 333 feet above the level of the river, 
to which it presents a nearly precipitous face ; the descent to the St. 
Charles River is more gradual. The distance from one river to the 
other is little more than a mile. Opposite Cape Diamond the St. 
Lawrence is contracted to a breadth of 1,314 yards ; but immediately 
below, at the confluence of the St. Charles, it spreads out into a 
broad and beautiful basin, more than 2,500 yards wide, forming a 
capacious and excellent harbor. The Spring tides rise and fall 18 
feet. Quebec is divided into two parts called Upper and Lower 
Towns. The Upper Town occupies the highest part of the pro- 
montory, a small part of it is surrounded with walls, and otherwise 
fortified. The ancient citadel, which crowns the summit of Cape 
Diamond, covers, with its numerous works, an area of 40 acres, and 
from its position is the strongest natural fortress in America. The 
Lower Town, which is the seat of commerce, is built around the base 
of Cape Diamond, where, in many places, the rock has been cut 
away to make room for the houses. The banks of both rivers are 
lined with warehouses and wharves, the latter jutting about 200 feet 
into the stream, and along them the water is sufficiently deep to 
admit vessels of the largest size. The city has several times suffered 
from disastrous fires, but the result has been the erection of more 
attractive buildings and a consequent improvement in the general 
appearance of the city- In the Upper Town are several squares 
and public walks commanding views unrivalled for their varied and 
picturesque appearance. In one stands a substantial monument, 
erected to the joint memory of Generals Wolfe and Montcalm, the 
English and French commanders who fell in the taking of Quebec in 
1759. It is 65 feet high. A monument 40 feet high marks the spot 
where General Wolfe fell on the Plains of Abraham ; while on St. 
Foy Road stands a monument presented by Prince Napoleon Bona- 
parte in 1855, commemorating a fierce struggle which took place 
here in 1760 between the British and French troops. Among the 
public buildings of Quebec may be mentioned the new Parliament 
Buildings ; the Roman Catholic Cathedral, with a seating capacity 
of 4,000 persons, and covering with the university attached an area 
of eight acres ; the English Cathedral, surmounted by,a lofty spire, 
both occupying elevated positions in the Upper Town. There are 
twenty-three churches in Quebec and one synagogue. The educat- 
ional institutions comprise three Roman Catholic Colleges, viz : 
Laval University, with faculties of arts, law and medicine ; the 
Grand Seminary and the Minor Seminary ; the Ursuline Convent, an 
extensive establishment founded in 1641 ; several nunneries ; Morrin 
College, with seven professors ; Laval, Normal and Model schools ; 
Girls' High school ; the Quebec High school, and a number of private 
academies and public schools. There are in addition, a Canadian 
Institute, provided with a library and reading room ; the Literary 
and Historical Society, the oldest chartered institution of its kind in 
Canada, having been founded in 1824, and possessing valuable 
" Records of the Realm " in eighty or ninety folios, and a large 
collection of historical manuscripts ; but nearly the whole of its 
museum and a great part of its library were destroyed by fire, with 
the Parliament buildings, in 1854 ; the Entomological Society, St. 
Patrick's Literary Institute, Advocates' Library, Board of Trade, 
Merchants' Exchange and the Y. M.C.A. rooms. The principal 
benevolent institutions are the Marine Hospital, the Hotel Dieu, the 
(Jeffery Hale) General Hospital, and the Lunatic Asylum at Beau- 
port. Surrounding towns and villages where no papers are pub-

3rd. It must tell why the article is worth 
buying, in language that will carry conviction. 

There is one argument for the cause of ho- 
nesty in advertising which has never been and 
never will be successfully refuted. It is uni- 
versally conceded that if a merchant is in bu- 
siness to stay he will find it an absolute neces- 
sity to secure the confidence of the public. 
That this cannot be done by dishonest methods 
is a self-evident truth. Profitable Advertising.

PROVINCE OF NEW BRUNSWICK. 



New Brunswick, the largest of the three maritime provinces, has a land 
area of 28,100 square miles, and an internal water area of 100 square 
miles. The population at the census of 1891 was 321,294 and the 
estimated population at the present time is about 350,000. The province 
is endowed with a remarkable wealth of timber lands and an extent 
of rich farming- land also far larger than is generally supposed. These 
lands will be opened up for cultivation as the forests are cleared, 
when New Brunswick will be recognized not only as a great agricultural 
and stock raising country, but as Nova Scotia is now, will be rich in fruit 
and garden products. The pulp industry is beginning to be developed, 
the province having a large area of fine pulp wood. The province is inter- 
sected in a remarkable way by beautiful rivers, nearly all of which are 
stocked with fish. Some of the salmon rivers of New Brunswick are the 
most celebrated in the world. The River St. John noted among other 
New Brunswick rivers for its picturesque scenery is 500 miles long, is 
navigable for large steamers to Fredericton, 90 miles, and for small steam- 
ers to Grand Falls, 230 miles. Other noble rivers of the province are the 
Miramichi, the Nipiseguit, the Richibucto and the Ste. Croix. Coal, gold, 
galena, manganese, antimony and other mineral deposits exist in the 
province, together with a remarkable mineral called albertite a jet-black, 
glossy substance the true character of which was a matter of dispute 
among geologists, though it is now regarded as pure petroleum, and is of 
great commercial value. To give an idea of the extent of the lumber 
industry of the province, the mills of the St. John River alone produce over 
160,000,000 ft. annually, not including laths, pickets, shingles, staves, etc. 
The fisheries of the province are extensive, employing over 11,000 men and 
over 5,500 vessels and fishing boats. The total value of the fish caught by 
these fishermen in 1897 was $4,799,433, the exports offish being $757,207. 
The total tonnage of vessels engag-ed in the coastingtrade of New Brunswick 
in 1897 was 1,301,667 tons. The canning of lobsters and sardines is now a 
special feature of this industry. New Brunswick has three cities, five 
towns and 750 villages and hamlets. It has two universities and a number 
of academies, normal and high schools. There were 1,737 public schools 
in the province in 1897, with 1,820 teachers and assistants and 61,988 
pupils. The grammar schools have 82 teachers and 732 pupils, and the 
normal schools 257 pupils. The total number of post offices in the province 
in 1897 was 1,183, through which passed 6,250,000 letters, 1,145,000 post 
cards, 149,000 registered letters, 206,000 free letters, 765,000 transient 
newspapers (not including papers mailed from newspaper offices), circulars, 
etc., 17,000 parcels and 68,203 money orders. In the Dominion parliament 
New Brunswick is represented by 10 senators and 14 members of the House 
of Commons. Its provincial legislature has now a single house, the Legis- 
lative Assembly, consisting of 46 members. Capital, Fred"ericton. 

For information as to the newspapers of the province see other parts 
of this work.

The only way to win in advertising is to get 
into it with all your heart, determined to get 
results, and then leave no stone unturned to 
discover along what lines advertising will bring 
the greatest returns at the smallest cost. 



An ad must look for the reader. Readers 
never look for an ad. 

People remember your goods because you 
force them to. Stop forcing and they'll stop 
remembering. 

Be patient. Don't expect a mad rush on 
the part of the public the moment you spring 
your first advertisement upon them. If you 
want a good crop you must sow good seed and 
plenty of it. One grain of corn won' t produce it.

PROVINCE OF NOVA SCOTIA. 



The Province of Nova Scotia called in its early days Acadia, and 
embracing- under that term the territory of the present Province of New 
Brunswick is bounded on the north and west by the Gulf of St. Lawrence, 
Straits of Northumberland and Bay of Fundy, and on the east and south by 
the Atlantic Ocean. Only a narrow neck of land separates the waters of 
the Bay of Fundy from the Straits of Northumberland. Standing- out in 
the Atlantic, and commanding, in a commercial sense, the Gulf of St. Law- 
rence, the province is destined to be the great maritime force of the Amer- 
ican continent. Each and every county in the whole province reaches the 
sea, and possesses one or more harbors ; and the position of the province 
in this respect is unique in the geography of the world. The land area 
of Nova Scotia is 20,550 square miles, the internal water area 50 square 
miles, and the population in 1891 was 450,523. It has 18 counties, 3 cities, 
14 towns and about 850 villages. The future maritime pre-eminence of 
Nova Scotia is not only indicated by its position on the sea, and by the 
natural tendencies of the population, but by the immense beds of excellent 
coal and iron found side by side in the same counties, and eminently suited 
for ship building purposes. The output of Nova Scotia coal increased from 
1,373,666 long tons in 1886 to over 2,280,000 in 1898, and the demand for 
it in Quebec and other provinces has been greater during the past year 
than ever before. During 1898 the quantity of gold mined in the province 
amounted to 31,104 oz. This exceeded the output of any previous year, 
the product of the iron mines is also large ; while the province is rich in 
gypsum, copper and other mines as yet but partially developed. Amongf 
other products of the field, Nova Scotia has of late years become famous 
for her apples, which are in great demand in England for tfreir exception- 
ally fine flavor. In the last few years the production of apples has ranged 
from 200,000 barrels to 400,000 barrels, and new areas are each year being- 
planted. Im 1898 Nova Scotia had 2,385 schools with 101,203 pupils. The 
province has five Universities, a Provincial Normal school, an Academy 
for the Deaf, Dumb and Blind the first in any British Colony a school 
of Horticulture, and 18 county academies besides high schools. In the 
year 1897 there passed through the 1,657 P ost offices of Nova Scotia 
9,100,000 letters, 1,725,000 post cards, 237,000 registered letters and 
775,000 transient newspapers, periodicals, books, etc. Nova Scotia sends 
to the House of Commons 20 members, and to the Upper House 10 senators ; 
its local legislature has 38 members in the Assembly and 21 in the Legis- 
lative Council. Capital, Halifax.

PROVINCE of PRINCE EDWARD ISLAND. 



Thoug-h the smallest in area having a land surface of only 2,000 square- 
miles Prince Edward Island is the most thickly settled and one of the most 
productive of the provinces of Canada. It had at the last census of 1891 
54.5 persons to the square mile, while Nova Scotia, the next province in 
density of population, had at the same census only 21.8 per square mile. 
The population of the island at the census of 1891 was 109,078, the estimated 
population at the present time being about 1 20,000. There is scarcely a 
foot of land in Prince Edward Island not capable of cultivation and the soil 
is uniformly rich. This natural advantag-e, coupled with the endowment of 
a temperate climate and regular rain falls, has made the province famous- 
as an agricultural and stock raising country. The Island horses, cattle and 
sheep not only command a ready sale in the other provinces of Canada, 
but are in continually increasing demand in the United States where 
they are highly prized for their sound health and fine qualities. One 
writer calls it the Arabia of America in respect of its splendid horses, 
and another speaks of it as the Ireland of Canada in praise of its cattle 
and dairy products. Among other agricultural products, the Island 
oats and potatoes are famous throughout America and the West Indies for 
their excellence, the foreign demand for these products being steadily on 
the increase. The hay crops are also celebrated, being produced from 
indigenous clover and grasses, and it is to the high quality of these crops that 
the superiority of the island live stock is largely due. The fishing interests- 
of the Island are also important, its position in the Gulf giving it great 
advantages for the future development of its marine resources. The value 
of the fish taken by P. E. I. fishermen in 1897 was $976,125, of which 
$494,281 was exported to foreign countries. The total tonnage of vessels 
engaged in the coasting trade of the Island in 1897 was 1,209,602, being- 
nearly as large as that of New Brunswick. The principal fish caught are 
mackerel, herring, cod, hake, lobsters and oysters. The annual take of 
lobsters is about 22,000,000 in number, and of oysters abo'ut 26,000 barrels, 
the P. E. I. oysters especially those of Malpeque Bay being esteemed 
the finest in flavor of any on the Atlantic coast. The park like scenery of 
the Island, and its even temperature and charming summer weather are 
year by year attracting tourists and health seekers to the province from all 
parts of the continent. Prince Edward Island had in 1897 467 public 
schools with 332 male teachers and 247 female teachers and a total of 
21,845 pupils. In the same year it had 406 post offices through which 
passed 1,330,000 letters, 190,000 post cards, 36,500 registered letters, 
34,500 free letters, 185,000 transient newspapers, circulars, etc., 2,850- 
parcels, and 9,431 money orders, besides papers from offices of publication. 
Prince Edward Island is represented in the Dominion Parliament by four 
senators, and five members of the House of Commons. Its local govern- 
ment is carried on by a single house, the Legislative Assembly, having 29 
members. Capital, Charlottetown.

A plunger in advertising stands about te 
same chance of coming to grief as does the 
plunger on the race-track, and the indisputa- 
ble truth that there are a few who have suc- 
ceeded by this method is the exception that 
proves the rule. Advertising is as sure to 
pay as the sun is sure to rise, but it must be 
the right amount of the right kind in the 
right place.

PROVINCE OF MANITOBA. 



Manitoba, popularly known as the prairie province, has a land area 
of 64,066 sq. m., and a water area of 9,890 sq. m. It is celebrated for its 
rich agricultural land, and is especially noted as a grain raising province. 
Twenty-five years ago almost the only products of the province were furs, 
but its prairie lands, over which the buffalo roamed but a few years ago, 
are being rapidly settled by immigrants from the older provinces and from 
Europe. When Manitoba became a province of the Dominion in 1870, the 
total population was only 11,963, of whom 10,400 were half breeds and 
Indians. The census of 1891 showed a population of 152,506, and the 
present population is estimated at over 300,000. In 1882 the province had 
65 miles of railway, and at the end of 1898 this was increased to 1,755 miles. 
The total acreage devoted to cereals in 1897 was 1,958,025, being an 
increase of about 15 per cent, over the previous year. In 1897 there were 
18,261,950 bushels of wheat raised ; 10,629,513 bushels of oats ; 3,183,602 
bushels of barley, besides other grain and root crops, while the live stock 
in the same year was estimated as follows ; head of horses, 100,274; cattle, 
221,775 ; sheep, 36,680 ; swine, 74,944. During the past few years dairy- 
ing and stock raising have developed very rapidly. The minerals of the 
province have not been developed, as yet, but large deposits of salt 
and petroleum are known to exist near Lake Winnipegoosis, while rich 
beds of iron ore underlie the country around Lake Winnipeg. The num- 
ber of public schools in the province in 1897 was 1,068, having 1,197 
teachers, and 39,841 pupils. There are also collegiate institutes at Win- 
nipeg, Portage La Prairie and Brandon, having on the rolls a total of 818 
pupils. At Winnipeg there is a Normal School for the training of teachers, 
having 101 pupils at the short session and 143 at the long session. In 1897 
there were in Manitoba and the North-West Territories 790 Post Offices, 
through which passed 9,950,000 letters, 1,075,000 post cards, 295,000 
registered letters, 232,000 free letters, 1,405,000 transient newspapers, 
circulars, etc., and 66,866 money orders. Manitoba is represented in the 
Dominion House of Commons by 7 members, and in the Senate by 4 sen- 
ators. The local government is carried on by a single Legislative Assem- 
bly, having 40 members. Capital Winnipeg. 

For information regarding the newspapers of the province see other 
parts of this zvork. 

The electoral Divisions of the local legislature are given as counties, 
they taking the same place as the counties in the older Provinces.

Northwest. It is in the famous Red River Valley and surrounded by 
good farming, timber, and mining districts with extensive lake 
fisheries. The streets of the city are generally wide, the principal

NORTH WEST TERRITORIES. 



The four organized territories of the s Canadian North- West have ar> 
area of over 500,000 square miles, divided as follows ; Assiniboia, land 
area, 89,340 sq. m., water area 1,000 sq. m.; Saskatchewan, land area 
108,000 sq. m., water area 6,000 sq. m.; Alberta, 99,255 sq. m.; water area 
745 sq. m.; the Yukon, 196,300 sq. m., water area 2,000 sq. m. This is 
exclusive of the Mackenzie Basin, Ung-ava, Franklin and Keewatin, terri- 
tories of large extent, but almost unexplored and undevelopped. It was- 
only in 1886, that the little known region lying between Manitoba and B.C. 
was marked off into districts with a provisional government corresponding 
to the Crown colonies of Gt. Britian, but it is only the matter of a short 
time when these districts will become provinces of the Dominion. The Act 
creating these districts gave the Dominion government the essential 
attributes of sovereignty, not only over these territories, but over the entire 
domain of British North America, so large a part of which is still waiting" 
exploration and settlement- A census of Assiniboia, Alberta and Saskat- 
chewan, taken in 1885, gave the total population of these districts as 
48,362, of whom 20,170 were Indians, the district of Athabasca being 
almost wholly inhabited by Indians. The census of 1891, showed the 
population of the territories to be 98,967, and if the rate of increase is. 
continued for the present decade, the population will be over 175,000 at 
the next census. Within the last few years these territories have become 
celebrated for their wonderful productiveness in grain and stock-raising, 
the winter climate having proved much milder than those accustomed to 
corresponding latitudes in the East would imagine, owing to the influence 
of the Chinook winds and other causes. The mineral wealth of the- 
Territories in coal, gold, natural asphaltum, petroleum, etc., has already 
been proved to be immense, and it only requires railway communication to- 
open up these vast resources. In 1885 there were 59 organized school 
districts in the territories, but in 1897 they possessed 386 public schools, 
and 8 separate schools, the former having 455 teachers, and the latter 15. 
The total number of pupils was 14,576. The postal statistics of the Terri- 
tories are included in the official returns for Manitoba. The North- West 
Territories return 2 senators to the Dominion House and 4 members to the 
House of Commons. For all the territories together except the Yukon, 
there is a Legislative Assembly, consisting of 29 members, which with an 
Advisory Council forms the local government. The Yukon district, the 
great mineral wealth of which has become the sensation of the world, is- 
administered by a special commissioner and staff, appointed by the Dominion 
Government. The capital of the North- West Territories is Regina, and 
of the Yukon district, Dawson City.

BRITISH COLUMBIA. 



British Columbia, the largest of all the provinces of the Canadian 
Confederation, has a land area of 382,300 sq. miles, and a water area of 
i ,000 sq. m., being more than the combined areas of France, Italy, Belgium 
and Holland. All the great natural features of the other provinces are 
here reproduced on a magnified scale, the great prairies of the North-West 
alone excepted. It has a greater variety of climate than all the other pro- 
vinces, for while the upper slopes of the Rockies are as cold as Labrador, 
the southern coast is so warm that oranges have been ripened in the open 
air. Its wonderful coast line of thousands of miles, embracing hundreds of 
harbors ; its unrivalled fisheries ; its stupendous forests, many trees of 
which measure from 8 to 10 feet in diameter ; its incalculable wealth in 
those minerals which are the most valued by, and most necessary to, man, 
and its peculiar geographical position on the Pacific Coast, all mark out the 
province as one of the imperial realms of the future. The wealth of British 
Columbia in minerals can as yet scarcely be calculated, for tracts of country 
thousands of sq. miles in extent, are as yet untraversed by the prospector, 
and many regions known to be rich in minerals can not yet be reached by 
railways. Among the minerals mined or exported to a greater or less 
extent are gold, silver, coal, iron, copper, galena, mercury, cinnibar, 
platinum, antimony, bismuth, molybdenum, plumbago, salt and mica, while 
many other minerals are known to exist. The coal of the province ranges 
from common lignite to anthracite, and most of it is admirably suited for 
steam purposes. The steamshipping trade of the whole American coast of 
the Pacific is now looking to British Columbia for its coal supplies. Within 
the past year the vast coal beds of the Crow's Nest Pass have been tapped 
and have been proved to be excellent steam coal. For the 12 years pre- 
ceeding 1874, the exports of coal from British Columbia averaged 12,500 
tons per year, but they have developed since then till in 1897 the exports 
were 679,751 tons, the total production of the same year being 988, 796 tons. 
The coal bearing areas so far explored are 65,000 sq. m. in extent, the 
quantity underlying portions of this area being estimated at jour and a half 
to nine million tons per sq. m. Gold is found in greater or less quantity all 
over the province, but the mines of the Kootenay and Cariboo districts are 
becoming prominent as quartz mining regions, while the Cassiar and Atlin 
Lake regions are now being exploited for placer mines. The gold produced 
in British Columbia in 1894 amounted to $530,530.00, while since the 
development of quartz mining, the production has gone on at such rapid

NEWFOUNDLAND. 



Newfoundland, the oldest colony in the British Empire, embraces the 
Island of Newfoundland and a portion of the Labrador coast of the main- 
land, and is the only part of British North America not as yet included in 
the Dominion of Canada, though proposals for confederation have at various 
times been made, and will no doubt be consummated after the French shore 
difficulty is settled. The area of the island is estimated at 40,200 sq. m. 
and the Labrador coast at 120,000 sq. m. The population at the census of 
1891 was 202,040, including- Labrador. From its settlement in 1614 to a 
very recent time the fisheries have formed practically the only industry of 
the inhabitants, but the building of railways, and the exploration of the inte- 
rior, is leading to the discovery and development of hitherto unknown 
resources that will give a steadiness and balance heretofore lacking in the 
commerce of the island. In the whole island less than 100,000 acres are 
now under cultivation, but there are are considerable tracts of land fit for 
hardy cereals, and northern fruits such as apples, and efforts are now being 
made to bring these lands under tillage. In minerals the island has copper, 
coal, iron, gypsum, sulphur, graphite, lead and asbestos. The chrome iron 
mines of the colony, recently opened out by means of the railway are of 
high grade, and the ore is meeting with a great demand in the United 
States, Canada and Europe. In 1896 iron pyrites to the amount of 36,496 
tons were exported, and copper ore to the amount of 64,672 tons, valued at 
$483,814.00 were exported in the same year. Out of a total value of 
$6,638, 187. oo of exports in 1896 $5,649,766.00 were offish and fish products. 
In 1895 there were 2, 339 vessels on the shipping register of the colony, with 
a total tonnage of 108, 180 tons and of the whole population no less than 
53,502 persons were engaged in fishing. The total attendance at the colle- 
ges, academies and schols, in 1896 was 34,557. There are 846 post offices 
in the colony, but statistics of this department are not available. The 
government is carried on by a Legislative Council, consisting of 15 members 
and a Legislative Assembly of 36 members. Capital, St. John's.

THE BUSINESS OF ADVERTISING. 




Written for the Canadian Newspaper Directory, by 
Mr. J. P. McConnell. The writer of this article 
knows whereof he speaks. He has been the 
advertising manager of the " Slater Shoes," 
and is now in charge of the advertising depart- 
ment of The Kennedy Co., Ltd., manufacturers 
of " Semi-ready " Clothing. 



This is not written to convince the reader of the value of advertising 
but for the purpose of being of some possible assistance to those who 
already believe in advertising as a good business proposition. 

Before beginning to advertise it is necessary to first know what you 
are to advertise. I am not one of those who believe that anything may 
be boomed into profitable popularity by advertising. It must have merit, 
and superior merit at that, especially if it is to compete with other adver- 
tised articles. 

The advertiser should be able to gauge the field for his article. If it 
is something in every day use so much the better. If it is something 
forming part of the great popular necessities of life, with distinctive 
features of its own, then it will probably be a bonanza if properly placed 
on the market and efficiently advertised. 

Of course it must not be forgotten that many new things have been 
introduced and a demand created for them by advertising things which 
the public never knew they wanted till they heard of them through adver- 
tising. Likewise the trade in lines which have been on the market for 
years, and familiar to thousands of consumers has been rejuvenated and 
doubled, trebled or quadrupled by an agressive policy of advertising. 

Having decided what is to be advertised and a definite plan for market- 
ing the goods decided upon, the next consideration is the preparation of 
the copy for the advertisements. It is often right on the threshold that 
the advertiser makes the mistake which marks his ultimate failure. 

Good copy is a prime requisite. Not smart sayings, or even expert ad 
writers' stuff will sell goods unless the ad gives good and sufficient reasons 
for the public using them. For this reason I believe that a good salesman 
would write better ads than nine out of ten of the so called ad experts, if 
he would write as he talks when selling the goods. The expert's services 
may be valuable in condensing and putting into attractive shape what is 

A. McKiM & Co., NEWSPAPER ADVERTISING AGENCY, MONTREAL. 



208 THE CANADIAN NEWSPAPER DIRECTORY. 

said, but mere words never did and never will make a success of any 
business. Reasons, information, descriptions and prices are absolutely 
essential for ads which are intended to sell. 

It is surprising how people want to buy. But before they buy they 
want to know something about the goods ; want to know why Jones' 
stoves are better than Smiths ; want to know how much they will cost, 
in fact they are just as inquisitive outside the store as they are in it. The 
man who can write information that anticipates all possible kinds of ques- 
tions is a good ad writer. 

Literary style is only a secondary consideration, and nothing but plain 
statements of facts expressed in such a way that they carry conviction 
of their truthfulness should be the only style tolerated in advertising 
matter. Originality and arguments attractively put are nevertheless desi- 
rable if the business of the ad is not forgotten. 

The expert usually has a better knowledge of setting, illustration, 
media, etc., and the advertiser on a large scale really needs his services. 
But the advertiser should keep a watchful eye on all the advertisements. 
One of the most successful business men I know, who manufactures a 
large quantity of a certain advertised line of goods, cannot write a line of 
advertising, but he is the most accurate judge of a good ad I ever met 
simply because he never loses sight of the consumer and always judges 
the possible effect of the ad on the reader not by its smartness or " style ' ' 
but by the force of its reasoning, and this should be the point of view 
from which the advertiser should watch the expert's work. 

The setting of the ad is next in importance. No single style can be 
recommended, but it is safe to say neatness and dignified plainness should 
mark the setting of ads. Borders may sometimes be used with good 
effect but I prefer a border of white space on most ads. Not more than 
three faces of types should be used in any ad. The illustration is also 
important. In most cases an original drawing that illustrates either the 
article, some particular feature or some argument in favor of it should be 
used. For this reason the really effective illustration will most likely 
have to be an original one. Avoid stock cuts or illustrations from 
"syndicates." Not one in ten of these will ever be found available. 
Above all don't attempt to write an ad to fit the cut. Such ads usually 
sound hollow and strained. It pays to go to the extra expense of original 
cuts especially if you are using any number of papers. For ordinary 
newspaper work the line drawing will be found the most effective. 

Select your engraver. Watch his work too, give him time enough 
to etch his plates so you won't find lines missing in the printed ad. 

It will generally be found advisable to have a printer set up the ad, 
and afterwards have it electrotyped. From the electros any number of 
stereos may be made but care should be taken to preserve the original 
electros for future use. 

Before all this has been done the prudent advertiser will have looked 
up a reliable advertising agency and secured rates, circulation, etc., with 
an estimate of the cost of a campaign. 

The media to be selected will of course be newspapers. No other 
form of publicity is so effective or economical. After the first tew ads 

A. McKiM & Co., NEWSPAPER ADVERTISING AGENCY, MONTREAL. 



THE CANADIAN NEWSPAPER DIRECTORY. 209 

have appeared in the newspapers there will be a steady stream of solicit- 
ors for all kinds of schemes. My experience is that not one in a hundred 
of these schemes is worth investigating. In fact, many of them are down- 
right swindles of a very brazen kind. The best way to floor a " scheme " 
is to select a newspaper of known circulation and rates, figure what you 
can get in it for the money you are asked to put into the " scheme." It 
will be an eye-opener to you. For instance : A plausible gentleman 
presented to me a proposition to take space in a monthly. The circula- 
tion was claimed to be 1,000, with a possibility of half that, but for the 
sake of argument we'll allow it what it claimed which means that if the 
statement of circulation were true that my ad would reach in the course 
of a year 12,000 readers, most of which would of course be duplicated. 
The price asked ($50.) looked cheap enough, but here is how cheap it 
really is when figured out. With $50. I can go to either one of two dailies 
in Montreal with a known circulation of over 50,000 and buy say 1,000 
lines, more than equal to three full columns. So with this one insertion 
I could reach more than twice (probably four times) as many people, in 
a ten times more impressive way. Or I could divide the 1,000 lines in 
four equal instalments and reach over 200,000 people, and use approxi- 
mately the same sized space as the page in the monthly. By using 
these four ads in one week I would cover nine or ten times the 
ground and results would be immediate if at all, while in the monthly I 
would have to wait a year for all the ads to get to work. Reasoned on 
this basis, I don't believe one scheme in a thousand will stand. The 
same will apply in buying regular newspaper space though it is the 
experience of all advertisers that the higher the circulation of a paper the 
cheaper it is in proportion to the service given. The papers of smaller 
circulation must charge more in proportion as the cost of publication is 
higher per thousand in the ratio of difference between their circulation 
and that of papers with bigger lists. Most anything, including news- 
papers, can be manufactured more cheaply on a large scale than on a 
small one. ~. 

The possibilities which may suggest themselves to a new advertiser 
from the above comparisons are not to be over-estimated in placing 
advertising. There are pitfalls which beset the beginner and which if not 
carefully watched and thoroughly understood will result in squandering 
an appropriation with no perceptible results. The question therefore of 
placing the advertising becomes a serious one. I believe the easiest, most 
economical and thoroughly satisfactory plan is through a reputable and 
established advertising agency. 

If the advertiser has had twenty or more years experience in buying 
newspaper space he will find he has not been a day longer at the business 
than he needs. If he understands all the intricacies of rate cards, of 
position, discounts and the peculiar regulations, no two offices being alike, 
he is partly qualified to place his own business. 

If he can secure the rates, command the influence and obtain advant- 
ages which only the man who places big business continually can, then 
he has another qualification. 

A. Mi KIM & Co., NEWSPAPER ADVERTISING AGENCY, MONTREAL. 



210 THE CANADIAN NEWSPAPER DIRECTORY. 

If the advertiser has a staff of assistants trained to check his ads, to 
give instructions and see that they are carried out ; if his business is large 
enough to warrant this kind of a service, he still lacks a good reason for 
placing his business direct because he can get all this service with the 
lowest rates for space, for nothing. 

If however he lacks any of the above facilities he has good reasons 
for placing his business through a reliable agency. 

On the question of rates I am tolerably certain that no advertiser 
gets lower rates than is given the best advertising agencies, in fact, I am 
conversant with cases where the direct advertiser has paid double what 
the agency does for his clients simply because he lacked information 
which only the agent was in a position to know. In this country, at least, 
the newspapers recognize the business brought to them by agencies 
as worth paying for, and allow an agent's commission, as by right they 
ought. In many cases the advertiser is developed by the agency which 
if it devolved upon individual newspapers would seldom be done on 
account of the expense as compared with returns. The expense of 
developing an advertiser for a dozen papers by an agency is no greater 
than for one paper but the paper would often find it expensive business 
to get. 

The agency's commission covers all the office expenses of placing the 
business of a hundred clients, and the profits. Thus the agency can place 
at the disposal of the client its full office equipment of assistants, system 
and experience without a cent of cost to him. 

While recognized by the publisher as his business getter, the 
agency, in order to conserve its own interest must see that the advertiser 
gets the very best service obtainable as on that largely depends successful 
advertising and upon success depends the future increase or continuance 
of the clients' business. It is less expensive to keep the business of estab- 
lished clients than to be continually compelled to develop new ones. I 
have dwelt upon this point because the agency's status has been consider- 
ably discussed of late, and I wish it to go on record that I thoroughly 
believe in the principle of placing business through a reliable agency. Of 
course, there are agencies and agencies but that's another story.

The following extracts from letters 
on A. McKim & Go's files, go to show 
their standing with the newspapers. 
They like intending advertisers to 
write to any of their clients or to any 
Canadian publisher regarding their 
methods of doing business. 

I desire to add my warmest appreciation and thanks for the uniformly 
kind and meritorious treatment to the " Free Press" by you, and the 
very prompt and equitable settlements made by you in our dealings 
covering a period of over fifteen years, without a single omission. 

OTTAWA. ONT., FREE PRESS. 

We shall always be pleased to consider any offer you may have to 
make for advertising, as it is always pleasant to do business with you 
when the prices are right. 

ST. JOHN N.B., GLOBE. 

There is no one we like better to do business with than A. McKim & 
Co., but we must have some sort of rate. 

VICTORIA, B.C., COLONIST. 

I have concluded to take the ***** advt. at the price you offer 
not that I desire it or any other at that price, but it is in consideration 
of the amount of business we do with you and the promptness with which 
payments are made, making it a pleasure to do business with you. I 
would not do it for any one else. 

NAPANEE, ONT., BEAVER. 

It is a pleasure to do business with those who are so prompt and 
satisfactory in their remittances as you are. 

Hoping for a continuance of your patronage. 

TORONTO, ONT., WEEKLY SUN. 

We like your style of doing business very much, but as our circula- 
tion has trebled in the past two years we think you should be willing to 
give us better rates. 

BERLIN, ONT., RECORD. 

In justice to ourselves we must say that of all agencies you are the 
most correct and regular, and we do not wish to appear as grumblers. 

VANCOUVER. B.C., NEWS ADVERTISER. 

Such promptness in remitting is a boon these times. Wishing you 
continued success. 

LONDON, ONT., FARMERS ADVOCATE. 

A. McKiM & Co., NEWSPAPER ADVERTISING AGENCY, MONTREAL. 



212 THE CANADIAN NEWSPAPER DIRECTORY. 

We are taking your advertising at lower rates than those of any other 
agency, because we are better satisfied with your system of paying. 

CHATHAM, N.B., WORLD. 

Your dealings with us in the past have been very satisfactory. 
DURHAM, ONT., GREY REVIEW. 

This low rate has been quoted to you from the fact that you are 
prompt in checking up and on this account you deserve some considera- 
tion. 

ORILLIA, ONT., NEWS LETTER. 

After some experience in dealing with unreliable concerns we have 
decided that it is better to take matter at a low rate from a good house 
than at a high rate from a poor house. 

WOODSTOCK, N.B., DESPATCH. 

Accept our thanks not only for the promptness of your remittance,, 
but as well for the trouble spared us of rendering account. 

WOODSTOCK, N.B., CARLETON SENTINEL. 

I have never given this rate or its equivalent before and would do so- 
for no other firm. 

PICTOU, N.S., COLONIAL STANDARD. 

For your very prompt payments and really easy settlements I offer 
my very best thanks. 

OSHAWA, ONT., REFORMER. 

We like to do business with you because you pay all your agree to. 
The fault we find is that you don't agree to pay enough. 

COATICOOK, QUE., OBSERVER. 

You can send the advts if you think best, the rate is smaller than I 
like but the payments are very satisfactory and the matter unobjection- 
able. 

PARRSBORO, N.S., LEADER. 

Your favor received with cheque in full for account. Accept thanks 
for your prompt settlement. This is one of the pleasures of doing 
business with you. 

SHERBROOKE, QUE., RECORD. 

Extract from editorial. 

We have heard strong ""objections raised by some confreres of the 
press against legitimate advertising agencies. While the rates they offer 
are low, there is some satisfaction in dealing with people when there is 
no question as to pay. The most satisfactory firm we know of doing 
business in Canada, is Messrs. A. McKim & Co., of Montreal. They are 
obliging and courteous, prompt in reply, and treat publishers like white 
men when one visits their offices. 

We do not propose in future to deal with strange advertising fakirs 
except on a spot cash basis. If a reputable firm wants to place advertis- 
ing, it is well to do it with a reputable agency like Me Kim's, and the 
McKim's can look out for their money. Through such agencies we will 
accept our outside business in future.

The Leading Newspapers 
of Canada. 



There can be no more reliable 
index to the conditions of intellec- 
tual life and the prosperity and 
advancement of a country than is 
afforded by its newspapers. A com- 
munity possessing and sustaining a 
great daily cannot be other than 
enlightened and progressive for 
where the standard of intelligence 
and of aggregate wealth is not high 
such a paper could not exist. Not 
only, therefore, is the existence of 
great newspapers an assurance of 
the general prosperity, but from a 
study of their growth and charac- 
ter can be accurately guaged the 
distinctive features of the national 
life. A press, the moral tone of 
which is healthy bespeaks a simi- 
larly healthy condition of society in 
the constituency to which it appeals, 
whereas a contrary attribute would 
not only be baneful in its influences, 
but denote that the public taste was 
already corrupt. 

In Canada, fortunately, the gen- 



eral tone of the great metropolitan 
dailies leaves nothing to be desired. 
There are, it is true, proportionately 
fewer great representative news- 
papers in the Dominion than in the 
Republic across the border, but these 
few are conspicuous in their impor- 
tance and influence far beyond the 
comparative populations of the two 
countries. An illustration of this 
fact is best afforded by the Montreal 
Star, whose circulation has increased 
with such strides during the last 
few years that it now stands recog- 
nized to be without a competitor 
in the Dominion. And this can be 
admitted without any disparagement 
to the other newspapers of the 
country, for the Star's circulation 
and prosperity are so phenomenal as 
to put it beyond the reach of anta- 
gonism or even jealousy. A daily 
circulation of over 51,000 and a cir- 
culation for the weekly edition of 
more than 100,000, while the total 
English - speaking population, in

THE CANADIAN NEWSPAPER DIRECTORY. 



men, women and children, of the 
city of publication (Montreal) is not 
over 65,000, is something so unpre- 
cedented as to excite a wonder 
which, were it not for the convincing 
logic of open circulation books, 
would verge on incredulity. Its 
explanation lies in the fact that the 
reputation of the Star as a news- 
paper has become so great that its 
reading clientelle has far exceeded 
the usual confines of a newspaper's 
contituency, and embraces not only 
the entire Dominion but extends 
also into the neighboring States of 
the Union. 

Naturally so great a result has 
been the outcome of business meth- 
ods of the soundest nature, and it 
is probably not too much to say 
that the Montreal Star can teach 
the greatest papers of the United 
States and Canada much that is of 
vital interest to the advertiser and 
to the advertising agent. The ac- 
tual circulation of the paper is 
printed from day to day, and through 
this best of all means the Star says 
to the advertiser : ' ' That . is what 
we are selling you. Before paying 
for it, check it, and see if you are 
getting it. If not, don't pay." 



The Montreal Star is to-day the 
largest one-cent paper in the world, 
without any exception. Recently 
it celebrated its Jubilee year. It 
had something to celebrate, too, for 
the Daily Star's circulation had 
risen to over 51,000, and the Week- 
ly Star's to over 100,000. This 
circulation and it is a point worth 
noting is among the best people of 
the country, that of the weekly be- 
ing amongst the sturdy yeomanry 
of the provinces. On this occasion 
of its Jubilee the Star received con- 
gratulatory messages from .scores 
of prominent papers in this coun- 
try, Great Britain and the United 
States, and from prominent adver- 
tisers the world over. Among the 
papers from whom messages were 
received were the following : 

The Toronto Mail, Ottawa Cztf- 
zen,Q\.\.awa. Journal, Halifax Herald \ 
Ivondon, Ont. Advertiser, New York 
World, New York Journal, Boston 
Globe, Boston Herald, Philadelphia 
Record, London, Eng. , Daily Mail ', 
and Leeds, Eng., Mercury. 

The circulation table of official 
figures that has been published and 
which is republished here, is signi- 
ficant.

In singling out the Star as the leading representative paper of Canada 
it is no disparagement of great papers like the Toronto "Globe" and 
"Mail", both of which readily concede the Star's superlative position.

GENTLEMEN, 

It gives us great pleasure to give our testimony as to the wonderful result 
producing power of your paper. We, as you know, are and have been large adver- 
tisers in all the leading Ontario papers, having used both the condensed and display 
columns of nearly all the dailies in the Province. 

We are therefore in a position to speak comparatively of the merits as advertis- 
ing mediums of the newspapers in Ontario, and we most unhesitatingly say that The 
News has been for our business by far the best medium. We have used your "want" 
columns with wonderful success, and your display columns very extensively, and with 
equally good results. 

We do not wish to depreciate the value of other mediums, which we are, and 
have been using, but we think it but fair, to let you know that for the purposes of our 
business, The News is certainly the best advertising medium, and we have tried them all. 
Yours truly, 

THE R. S. WILLIAMS & SONS CO., LIMITED,

264 THE CANADIAN NEWSPAPER DIRECTORY 

THERE are one and a half million of people in the 
Province of Quebec, the region of which Montreal is 
the centre. 

There are 300,000 in Montreal and suburbs alone. Montreal 
is the largest city in the Dominion it is growing. 
The French-Canadian of the Province of Quebec is one of 
a ruling race. The popular idea about him is wrong. 
He is not a foreigner. He is one of the people he is 
the people. 

Eighty per cent of the inhabitants of the Province of Quebec 
are French-Canadians. They are an intelligent, well read class 
of people. They transact most of the business and hold most 
of the offices in the Province. They have supplied some of 
the best men in the Dominion. 

The French-Canadians are not a colony they are a nation. 
They have a grip on the country that it will be hard to loosen. 
For the advertiser to attempt to reach this large and in- 
fluential people through the English papers in Canada is folly. 
They are French, and they read French literature, French 
books, French papers. Why, the French language is recog- 
nised in Parliament. The minutes of all proceedings and 
debates are printed in both French and English. A speech 
in the House may be made either language. Court records 
are kept in the same way. 

Naturally, therefore, the French-Canadians support a num- 
ber of French newspapers, and a knowledge of these is a 
"sine qua non" of the advertiser who would be seccessful in 
the Province of Quebec. 

" LA PRESSE" of Montreal is the French paper of Canada. 
It stands head and shoulders above all the rest. 
It is probably the most progressive French paper in the world. 
It has applied American business methods to French journ- 
alism. 

It stands on a little pinnacle of its own. 

The field which " LA PRESSE" covers is Montreal city 
first to a very large extent; also, Quebec, I^evis, Ottawa, Hull, 
St. Hyacinthe, in fact, all the large cities of the Province 
of Quebec. 

A. McKiM & Co., NEWSPAPER ADVERTISING AGENCY, MONTREAL. 



THE CANADIAN NEWSPAPER DIRECTORY. 265 

There is no other medium in Canada which so thoroughly 
covers the Province of Quebec as " LA PRESSE." 
To-day the actual average circulation of "LA PRESSE" 
is over 66,200 copies daily. The Saturday edition is about 
70,000 to 85,000. It prints no Sunday edition. 
"LA PRESSE" Building is a handsome six-story struc- 
ture on St. James Street, Montreal. The paper is printed on 
four Goss Duplex presses. It employs 200 hands. It owns 
and uses ten Mergenthaler typesetting machines. Also a 
complete photo-engraving plant. It requires thirty patent 
wagons to make deliveries to city agents only. 
It is a success. 

It is an influential and valuable advertising medium. Every- 
body who knows anything about Canadian advertising knows 
that this is so. 

The French-Canadian is a pow^r in the land. He cannot 
be ignored. He makes a good customer. It might be well 
for the advertiser to go after him through " LA PRESSE." 
The advertiser has a right to know the circulation of the 
paper he patronizes " LA PRESSE " is ready to prove 
Our books are open to each advertiser, and a written 
guarantee accompanies every contract, if so desired. 
There is no other paper in Canada which affords such facil- 
ities of proving circulation as " LA PRESSE." 
" LA PRESSE " IS THE LARGEST DAILY IN CANADA

S AN ADVERTISING MEDIUM is easiest estimated by the 

voluntary expression of those who have used it continuously for years. 



TAKE THESE AS A SAMPLE OF HUNDREDS OF OTHERS THAT CAN BE GIVEN IF 
WE HAD THE SPACE AND YOU HAD THE TIME TO READ THEM. 

You are well aware that we have been quite extensive advertisers for the past half century, 
and that among the mediums we have consistently and continuously used during that time 
The GLOBE has taken a foremost rank. It goes without saving that we should not have 
continuously used the Daily and Weekly Globe as a medium did not we consider that it 
catered to a large and widely scattered constituency which it is our desire to reach. To epi- 
tomise, we would say in a few words, that we consider the GLOBE one of the best advertis- 
ing mediums in Canada.

Your Mr. A. C. McPhee has asked us to send you our expressions of your paper, and in 
doing so, would say very briefly we consider "The Globe" one of the best, if :.ot the best, 
advertising medium In Canada. The fact that we have increased our contract the coming 
year* over previous years would be an indication of what we think of the value of "The 
Globe" as an advertising medium. 

Mr. Norman G. Ellis, Sec.-Treasurer, writes: We take great pleasure in writing you to 
State the results of our advertising in your paper, especially for our Christmas trade. As you 
know, we contracted for a page in your illustrated Saturday edition ; the result in actual 
returns that we could trace to this "ad" simply astounds us. We might say that our cash 
returns from this particular "ad" were five times greater than we ever expected, and we 
attribute our exceptionally large increase in December to the results of our advertising in 
your paper, and would on no account let our contract expire. Hoping that you can do as 
well for your other advertisers as you have done for us, believe us to 1* steady advertisers in 
The Globe. 

Mr. John N. Lake writes : I think it is only fair to say that, while I have been advertising 
for nearly thirty years as a real estate dealer, I have always found The Glot>e one of the best 
mediums to reach the public. But oflate I have had special reason to praise your paper. I 
had a special piece of property for sale, also a patented article suitable for the fanners. I 
advertised an equal number of times in 51 different papers, all professing to reach the parties 
desired, and got more inquiries from Globe readers than all the others combined. 

Mr. Hunts. Advertising Manager of Columbia Bicycles, says: We are well pleased with 
our advertising in The Globe this year, and selected your publication because inquiry and 
observation led us to believe that The Globe was one of the best advertising mediums in 
Canada. 



M 



Tohn F. Taylor. Sec. -Manager, says in his letter of June 6th, 
es for advertising we prefer The Globe. 



S: Of all the large 



We hove -always included The Globe in our list for Canada, now some twenty years, as we 
have always known it to be one of the leading papers i if the Dominion. 

We hold newspaper advertising to 1* the strong arm of success in making and holding a 
business similar to ours ; hence, we have used The Globe for such purpose continually for 
years, deeming its circulation the largest in its field, and its constituency of the best. 

If you wish to use this interview so as to state that "we have received from one catalogue 
ad. in The Globe more mail replies than from any other morning paper in Canada " you may 
do so, for it is a fact, to which I cheerfully subscribe. J. P. McConnell, Adv. Manager. 



The above is enough to convince the thoughtful advertiser who 
wants results that every copy of The Globe is like a well directed 
bullet, it hits the bull's-eye and scores. 



THE DAILY GLOBE COVERS THE RICHEST FIELD IN CANADA AND AS AN 
ADVERTISING MEDIUM HAS NO EQUAL IN THE DOMINION.

TESTIMONIALS 

THOMAS W. W ATKINS, of the Right House, corner 
of King and Hughson streets, said : "Our advertising 
has always brought us goo-i returns and our exten- 
sive use of the Times shows our appreciation of it. 

C H PEBBLES, Grocer : "My experience has been 
that housekeepers read the 7) mes to a greater extent 
than any other paper, and of course they are the 
people I want to get at." 

F. R. SMITH Proprietor of Smith's Clothing Man- 
ufactory : "I have found that the Times advertise- 
ments bring good returns. I am a big advertiser and 
watch the results carefully.

Mr. T. W. Gray, of Ranians, Gray & Carrie, Mr. 
Alfred Taylor, Manager of Oak Hall the three 
largest users of NEWS advertising space, and

Trade, made a careful investigation of the books, 
lists and circulation records of the News. The 
result is published below. The same invitation 
is extended to all past, present or prospective 
advertisers. 

London, 3Oth Dec., 1898.

i. That the average number of papers printed 
at the present time is 8,282 copies. 

i. That invoices from the paper mills show 
that the LONDON DAILY NKWS used during 
the year 1898, 262,088 pounds of white paper,

The City of Stratford, Perth County, Ontario, is looked upon as one 
of the most progressive of the smaller cities of Ontario. It has a population 
of 10,531. The Perth district, surrounding Stratford, is an ideal agricultural 
and dairying country, peopled by Scotch, English, Irish and German farmers 
of the best class. 

The Stratford Evening Herald is delivered directly to the homes of the indus- 
trious and thrifty citizens of Stratford, St. Marys, Mitchell, New Hamburg 
and other places. 

The Stratford Weekly Herald goes extensively into every section within a 
radius averaging not less than twenty miles of Stratford. No other paper in 
the city or district enjoys so large a circulation.

As to the relative values of the different 
classes of general media, I may say briefly 
from my own experience that we have found re- 
ligious papers to bring the best returns. These 
papers are read by people who prize them very 
highly, and who read them thoroughly. Nine- 
tenths of these papers are read by paying suo- 
scribers. I have often wished that the secular 
weeklies had the same strong hold upon their 
readers. But they do not. They are read very 
little in a thorough manner. People buy them 
for their caricatures, etc. They do not have 
much of a subscription circulation. Theirs is 
mostly a news-stand sale. The Quaker Oats 
Man, in Advertising Expei ieiice.

The Ontario Agricultural Gazette 

The official organ of the Dominion Cattle, Sheep, and Swine Breeder's Associations, 
and of the Farmers Institute System of the Great Agricultural Province of Ontario. 

It is read by every officer and member of these important Associations, 
comprising the leading stock raisers of the Dominion and by more than 10,000 
prominent farmers and their families as well. 

No other medium can give its advertisers as good 
results for the money expended and this is proved 
by the testimony of many of the leading manufac- 
turers and dealers in farmers' supplies in Canada. 
Send for copy of their testimonials or better still 
write to them direct for information. Their names 
will be furnished cheerfully on application. Kates are 
exceptionally low for the service rendered. Full in- 
formation as to circulation, rates and territory covered 
will be given to prospective advertisers at any time. 

Address : 



It covers the whole ground 

Farm, dairy, orchard, garden, opiary, 
poultry, etc., from the preparation of 
the soil, on feeding, breeding and 
management of the stock, the sowing 
and growing of the crop to the mar- 
keting of the products as a final re- 
sult. For 17 years Farming has main- 
tained its characters as the Canadian 
Farmer's business p_aper and is read 
by him for its practical value and not 
for pastime. Hence, its advertise- 
ments are looked for and eagerlj- 
read by every one of its subscribers.

A Journal for Business Men. 

In considering the advisability of Advertising in 
the MONETARY TIMES, it should be remembered that 
this journal reaches in many instances, both the 
dealer and the consumer. 

No other trade publication in this country has so 
large a list of subscribers. No other is sent to so many 
different post offices. No other reaches so many dif- 
ferent classes of business people, and no other is read 
by so desirable a constituency. 

We are honest in making these claims. 

Our representatives have visited most of the cities, 
towns and villages throughout Canada, and in addi- 
tion to knowing how thoroughly this paper is distri- 
buted, we also have learned considerable about other 
papers-where and what class of subscribers they have. 

Correspondence solicited, we would like to discuss 
the matter with you.

I RAT PORTAGE, population 
7,000 and rapidly growing : 
the centre of the largest and richest free-milling 
gold district on earth. The gold out-put for Dec. 
1898 was over $50,000, which will be largely in- 
creased, month by month, as many new stamps 
get in operation. Rat Portage is also the lumber 
supply depot of Western Canada and the centre 
of the most important inland fisheries of the con- 
tinent ; and is at the head of 300 miles of navig- 
able waters connecting it with the mines and the 
agricultural lands of Rainy River. Everybody 
in this rich new district reads

averaged 2,000 the last three months of that year. 

On January i, 1899 the price of local advertising was advanced

but were compelled last February to cancel same, as we were in the hands of a receiver at 
S that time. Since then, we have shaped up our affairs, and are now running under our old s 

name, and in our own rights. We would like to take out another adv. with you on same 
S terms and conditions as last. We feel that your paper has done us a great deal of good 5 

throughout Canada ; and we feel justified in .saying, that your paper has proven 

S beneficial to us. If you desire to run our adv. as'stated before, please send us your 5 

contract, and we will "sign, and return same. You can use same adv. as we had with' you 

35 before, or if you still have a copy of same please send it to us, and should we desire to -5 

make any changes, will advise you. We are.

gPEAKING of the LEADER AND RECORDER 
the Toronto World says : 

"THE LEADER AND RECORDER, 

published at Toronto Junction, has lately 
developed into a first-class county paper. 
It contains the latest news from all parts 
of York County, and gives special prom- 
inence to the events of the large district 
that comprises suburban Toronto. Typo- 
graphically it is one of the best exchanges 
received at this office. It ought to be of 
special value to Torontonians who have 
interests in the County." 



IT COVERS YORK COUNTY 



[HE LEADER AND RECORDER represents the amalgama- 
tion of seven York County newspapers : The Recorder, esta- 
blished Jan., 1889 ; The Leader, established Dec., 1893 ; The 
Woodbridge News ; The Schomberg Gazette ; The York Observer ; 
The York Gazette and the Mount Albert Observer. The business is 
the largest of its class in America, and embraces four printing offices, 
seven business offices, and more than one hundred agencies, all in the 
large, rich and populous county of York. 

Eight editions of The Leader and Recorder are published weekly, 
namely : Toronto Junction, Weston, Woodbridge, Schomberg, Deer 
Park (York Township), North Toronto, East, Toronto and Mount 
Albert. Advertisements appear in all these editions. 

The Leader and Recorder has a field peculiarly its own and acknow- 
ledges no equal as an advertising medium in the district covered 
by it.

time nor the skill required to set attractive advts. , nor 
has the country office proper equipment in the shape of 
new borders and striking type faces.

sers to use a series of advts at a small cost. All we 
require is an original plate of each advt. We make

ONE MEDIUM 



Does it all ... 



If j'ou want to tell the Druggists of Canada what you have to sell them and 
why it is to their interest to buy from you, it is not necessary and it is not profit- 
able to spend your money in circulars or letters, or through a variety of mediums, 
when one publication does it all for you, an advertisement in the 

"CANADIAN DRUGGIST" 

reaches all the drug trade throughout the whole of Canada.

St. Hyacinthe Courrier 

The population of the town of St. Hyacinthe and surrounding suburbs 
numbers more than 15,000 souls and that of district which comprises 3 counties 
exceeds, 75,000 inhabitants. 

The Courrier of St. Hyacinthe 

whose circulation is considerably more than all the Journals published in the 
district, offers advantages seldom equalled for its modesty of prices and for 
the varied class and number of its readers. 

In effect the district of St. Hyacinthe is a center given up almost exclu- 
sively to Agriculture, to the making of Butter and Cheese. Farming implements 
and everything that is necessary to the achievement of Dairies and Cheese 
factories find here a good market, always on the increase.

admitted by all critics to be the most up-to-date paper, in both style and 
matter, that is published in Manitoba. It has few, if any, equals in any 
town of similar size anywhere. The Press is a Peerless Paper. It has 
a capable editor and manager of a quarter of a century's experience in 
Newspaper and Job Printing work in city and country offices, devoting his every 
talent with energy and enthusiasm to his work. What makes such a paper a possi- 
bility in a place like Neepawa, with less than 2,000 population, is the compact settle- 
ment of well-to-do and intelligent English-speaking farmers surrounding the town 
into the homes of every one of whom the Press goes regularly, twice a week, giving 
them more local news in each issue than any of its provincial contemporaries do in 
their tardy once-a-weeks, besides an extensive summary of the world's news com- 
piled up to the day of publication. Thus the Neepawa Press satisfies the reading 
wants of the farming and working classes, by giving them eight pages of general 
news and advertising more promptly and in better form than city weeklies, and 
much cheaper and more suitable than the dailies. Its advertising columns are ex- 
tensively used, and those who do so judiciously get good results. Rates are $too per 
column per year for home-print pages, and $50 for ready-print pages, for once-a- 
week insertions ; or $150 per column per year for home-print and $74 for ready-print 
pages for twice a week. Sample copies sent on application ; but don't waste time

Do you Advertise in 

THE STAR, Sault Ste-Marie 

IF NOT, WHY NOT? 

The Star to-day has the largest circulation by 
hundreds of any other local paper. 

We will cheerfully submit this assertion to 
proof. Our mailing list can be, seen on applica- 
tion. We are confident the circulation of the 
Star in the rural parts adjacent to Sault Ste. 
Marie is more, than double that of any other 
paper. A common sense question. Is not an ad- 
vertisement in the Star worth double that of any 
other paper ? We invite your patronage because 
we honestly can give you value.

A Superb Advertising Medium is 

The St. Thomas Journal 

JAMES S. BRIERLEY, Publisher. 

The EVENING JOURNAL is the pioneer daily of 
St. Thomas, the capital of Elgin County, and a 
City of 15,715 inhabitants, situated in one of the 
most thickly-settled and prosperous parts of 
Ontario. St. Thomas is the most important rail- 
way centre in Western Ontario, the lines of the 
Michigan Central, Wabash, Grand Trunk, Cana- 
dian Pacific and Lake Erie & River passing 
through it. The shops of the Michigan Central 
and Grand Trunk employing hundreds of men. 
are also located here. The assessors' returns of 
1899 show an increase of 561 in the population, 
and the City is still growing. 

The railroads make tributary to St. Thomas a 
very extended tract of rich country that The Eve- 
ning Journal thoroughly covers. This edition 
goes in hundreds of copies each night to the fine 
thriving towns of Simcoe, Tilsonburg, Glencoe 
Dutton, Rodney, Delhi, Aylmer, Ridgetown, West 
Lome, Alvinston, aud scores of smaller places. 
Thus it is that the circulation is perhaps the 
largest in Canada, if not on the continent of any 
daily published in a city of similar size. 

By special deliveries, by stages, by railways, 
and by the ordinary process of the mail, THE 
JOURNAL is delivered every night to thousands 
of people residing on farms and in the villages 
and towns of the Southern Counties. Where the 
Daily cannot be sent the Weekly is.
