Another revelation of strength

Pughe, J. S. (John S.), 1870-1909
Uncle Sam stands on a wharf with five diminutive figures with attributes of the rulers of Austria (Franz Joseph I), Russia (Nicholas II), France (Felix Faure), Germany (William II), and Italy (Umberto I), and with John Bull representing England. Uncle Sam is showing the others an American steamship constructed out of bundles, barrels, and bales of exports, many indicating revenue in dollars, which, he believes, they "can't resist."
