In 1867 he began to publish the Silver Bend Reporter in Belmont (Belmont's first paper) with his brother. He sold out to his brother Mahlon in 1868. In the fall of 1877 he took over the Tuscarora Times (Tuscarora's first newspaper) after it had run only a few months. He suspended this paper in 1897 (Now the Tuscarora Times Review) ending his prolific newspaper career in Nevada. Fairchild began his career in Placerville, California during the Gold Rush.
