- At a meeting in a Chinese mission, a collection is being taken up, "Contributions received here to save the foreign devils." Five accompanying vignettes show how the United States is viewed by the Chinese, including "Kentucky feuds," "Burning Negros at the stake," "Labor riots," "Anti-Chinese riots," and "New York City government" where the Tammany Tiger is shaking down a citizen. A sign on a wall in the mission states, "Help the Heathen."
