Unto them that hath

Pughe, J. S. (John S.), 1870-1909
The "G.O.P." elephant holds a tambourine labeled "Stand Patism" and hands out free baskets labeled "Tariff Graft" containing a turkey, duck, or chicken to ragged figures labeled "Coal Trust, Steel Trust, [and] Wool Trust." A long line of trust figures await their turn. Joseph Cannon, Nelson W. Aldrich, Joseph B. Foraker, and Leslie M. Shaw appear in women's clothing as the "Republican Salvation Army" singers, singing "There are no flies on Dingley." A man labeled "Protected Monopoly" stands in the foreground, at the edge of the platform. Caption: Distribution of Christmas goodies by the Republican Salvation Army.
