Another delay

Taylor, Charles Jay, 1855-1929
President McKinley addresses an audience from a stage in a theater. Behind the curtain, an overturned hat labeled "Aldrich" lies on the stage next to a man holding papers labeled "Committee on Finance," kneeling before another man who is about to strike him with a club labeled "Demands of Western Senators." Two other "members of the cast" are engaged in a fist-fight.
