FRIDAY. NOVEMBER 4. 1S9S.
A WORD TO ADVERTISERS.
Now that the fall season has opened
up nicely and the Christmas trade is
coming on apace, the merchants of
Newport News are beginning to realize
the merits of the advertising columns
of the Daily Press.
In estimating th,, value of a news?
paper as an advertising medium two
essential qualifications should be con?
sidered. First, and probably the most
important one. is circulation, in tie
very nature of things an advertisement
is of little value unless it is placed be?
fore a large number of persons who
may become patrons of the advertiser.
Next in importance comes the class of
circulation. Advertising among |.p!o
who have go money to spend, no mat?
ter how willing they may be to buy. can?
not be of very great advantage to the
advertiser. After these two points have
been settled upon a business basis?not
upon rash and unsupported "claims''?
the success or failure of the advertise?
ment rests with the advertiser himself.
He must weigh conditions, must be
timely and progressive ami must al
ways be seasonable and sensible. a
man who would advertise a yellow fever
remedy in papers circulating exclusive?
ly in Canadian provinces would be con
sidered foolish, but he would be about
on par with the man who takes no trou?
ble to keep his advertisement up to
date. It is a significant fact that all
men who have ever put brains in their
advertising schemes have always be?
come enthusiastic adherents to tie- the?
ory that "advertising pays."
The management of the Daily Press
feels justified in calling the attention
of the merchants of Newport News to
the great facilities offered them
through the columns of this paper for
placing their wares before the public.
So for as both quality and numbers
are concerned, the circulation of the
Dailj Press towers far above that of
any of its contemporaries in this sec?
tion. This is not an idle boast to catch
the unwary, but is an assertion that
can easily be proved to the satisfaction
of any one who means business.
In advertising as in all other lines of
business the best is always the cheap?
est. The Daily Press is the best ad?
vertising medium in Newport News.
The New York Sun charges that Mr.
Richard Croker has assessed the saloon
keepers $300,000 for campaign purposes
And that the money will be used to
bet against Roosevelt at odds of ten to
eight. It is not at all difficult to be?
lieve that Croker has raised an assess?
ment of $300.000. but it is a terrible
strain upon one's credulity to believe
that such a practical politician as t ?
big Tammany boss would use such a
sum for the purpose suggested by our
luminous Gotham contemporary.
With an increase of over a bundled
million dollars in exports for the first
nine months of the year, and a decrease
of over a million in imports for the
same length of time, it is not surpris?
ing that business is picking up in the
United States. So long as Americans
can be kept In the habit of selling more
to the foreigners than they ;buy in re
turn it is quite evident that the both?
ersome "trade balance," of winch so
much lias been said, will nut have a
bad effect an He- interests of the United
There may be some significance in
the fact that the report of tin- sink?
ing of the Panama came from Cape
Mays!. It seems to us that reports "or
heavy firing atsea" frequently emanated
from the same point. Probably the cor?
respondents down there have not yet
recovered I'r. the demoralizing effect's
of the war.
If the startling reports sent out by
the. enterprising young man who b
winking the Hong Kong date line ma>
be accepted as tine, the English gov?
ernment, as well as Mr. Rudyard Kip
ling, lakes very little stock in the
"Truce of the Bear."
Whatever may be said to the con?
trary, it is a seif-evident fact that ;
