Firing up the wrong boiler

Pughe, J. S. (John S.), 1870-1909
President McKinley holds an oil can labeled "Patronage" and turns the crank on a "Prosperity Engine" while Nelson Dingley shovels coal into a damaged "Protection Boiler" labeled "High Tariff Defeat 1890" and "High Tariff Defeat 1892." Nearby is a brand new and unused "Sound Financial Policy Boiler." William B. Allison pulls the handle on a large brass "Republican Whistle."
