- Republican politicians wearing Roman togas are seated around a banquet table with a skeleton that is holding a standard labeled "McKinley's Shaky Financial Record." Gathered around the table are John "Sherman," Stephen B. "Elkins," Russell A. "Alger," Charles H. "Grosvenor," William "McKinley," Mark A. "Hanna," Christopher L. "Magee," William M. "Hahn," Joseph B. "Foraker," Cornelius N. "Bliss," Herman H. "Kohlsaat," Edward O. "Wolcott," and Whitelaw "Reid." Caption: The ancient custom of the Romans of seating a skeleton at their banquet-tables, to remind them of death, is now being revived by our Republican friends.
