The opium-joint of the Republican "irreconcilables" -- a cheap way of being happy
In an opium den labeled "Bloody Shirt Joint - Blaine and Reid Managers," James G. Blaine passes out pipes labeled "Tribune Editorials, Blaine's Augusta Speech, Blaine Speeches, [and] Speeches" to fellow Republicans labeled "Chandler, J. Roach, Evarts, Cornell, Logan, Hoar, Foraker, J. Sherman, Brady, Dorsey, [and] Reid," Unidentified is Elihu Root and the man dreaming of becoming the "Secy. of Navy." They have resorted to opium as the panacea for their political woes and while in their drug-induced stupor they dream of Blaine's ascendancy to the presidential throne and of themselves becoming members of Blaine's cabinet.
