Just what might have been expected

Pughe, J. S. (John S.), 1870-1909
William McKinley sits on the porch of a house labeled "Presidential Hopes," flying a banner that states "The Foreigner Pays the Tax," built on stilts on a sandy beach. Below, a rising tide labeled "Business Revival" has washed away the house and McKinley runs for safety. Caption: He built his house on a sand-heap, and the rising tide is making short work of it.
