Spain's new street crier - with the same old cry

Pughe, J. S. (John S.), 1870-1909
Uncle Sam, John Bull, and figures representing Germany, Italy, France, and Russia listen as a town crier labeled "Sagasta" reads a proclamation. "Blanco" plays a drum. The proclamation states that Spain's war with Cuba will end "next Thursday afternoon at half past four," or in "two weeks," or "we shall positively end it sometime or other."
