Coroner Harrison is a little too previous

Dalrymple, Louis, 1866-1905
Uncle Sam reclines in a chair with his feet resting on a foot stool. On a table next to him are medications labeled "Tariff Reform Tonic" and "Repeal of Sherman Silver Law Elixir." Benjamin Harrison stands at center holding a large "Certificate of Death - Died of Democratic Rule." He is attended by several men with their mourning hats, including Thomas C. Platt, Charles A. Boutelle, Whitelaw Reid, George F. Hoar, and Thomas B. Reed. They have come to pay their last respects.
