Illustration shows a scene outside a building labeled
"Washington Inn" with an image of the U.S. Capitol on the sign; a
large group of Republican legislators, politicians, and others are
laughing at an old man wearing tattered clothing labeled
"Democracy." He looks dazed, as though he has just wandered in from
the past; his walking stick is dated "1861." Two dogs labeled "N.Y.
Tribune" and "N.Y. Times" sniff at his heels. Among those present
are George M. Robeson, Ulysses S. Grant, John Logan, James
Gillespie Blaine, Chester Alan Arthur (dressed as a woman, serving
food and drinks), Charles J. Folger, George Frisbie Hoar, Joseph
Warreb Keifer, Horace F. Page, William Mahone (doing a hand-stand),
J. D. Cameron, Roscoe Conkling, John Sherman, George F. Edmunds,
John P. Jones and Thomas Collier Platt.
