A puzzle

Keppler, Udo J., 1872-1956
President McKinley as a dairy farmer milks a cow labeled "Patronage," and many hands hold out containers, most labeled "From Ohio," for a share of the milk. Mark Hanna was a senator from Ohio who had considerable influence with the President. Caption: How can McKinley satisfy Ohio, and still have a little patronage milk left for other patriots of the country?
