Summary
Illustration shows a scene at a boathouse where an exhausted James G. Blaine, suffering from "Guano Gout", is being attended to by Jay Gould, Whitelaw Reid, George M. Robeson, William W. Phelps, and Stephen B. Elkins who is searching a box of patent medicines labeled "Remedy, Record Cleaner, Tariff Fever Cure, R.R. Record Purifier, Tattoo Eradicator, [and] Vermont Reviver (Homoepathic)" for a cure; John A. Logan readies the racing shell labeled "Aggressive Campaign" that may be stuck in "Monopoly Mud", and Stephen W. Dorsey, at the entrance to the boathouse, carries oars labeled "Soap" and [Star] "Router", and hanging on the wall are shells and oars labeled "Guano Statesmanship, Speaker Ship's Record Boat, Senatorial Record, [and] Tariff Issue". Grover Cleveland waits in his racing shell labeled "Reform" and Carl Schurz stands at the entrance to the "Independent Boat House" which is next to the "Democratic Boat House".
