He has one medicine for all ills

Pughe, J. S. (John S.), 1870-1909
President McKinley as a physician dispenses strong "Tariff" medicine in the men's ward of a sanatorium. The beds lining the walls are occupied by a "Business Man" suffering from a "Loss of Confidence," a "Populist" disturbed by "Mental Aberation in Regard to Free Silver and Government Paternalism," and a "Jingoist," a "Spoils Man," an "Anarchist," a "Filibuster," a "Monopolist," all with similarly distressing ills. Last is a man sitting on a bed with a sign that states "Hallucinations about Home Markets and Infant Industries." In the background is a door that leads to the "Woman's Ward," where "Woman's Suffrage" and "Woman's Rights" are the diseases.
