Summary
Illustration shows the spirits of George Washington and Abraham Lincoln looking at a throne draped with an American flag beneath a sign that states "This coming term will end the first hundred years of the American presidency. Shall the century begun with Washington at the head of government end in disgrace with James G. Blaine in that sacred chair?" Below is Blaine, tattooed with scandals and frightened by the shades of past presidents, his hat labeled "Corruption" falling off, with his foot on the first step toward the presidency; leaning against his back is Jay Gould holding a paper that states "Four Supreme Court judges to be appointed by the next president", also behind Blaine, on his hands and knees, is Stephen W. Dorsey, next to a paper on the floor that states "Honesty No Requisite for the Presidency (Blaine's Theory)", and on the right stands Benjamin F. Butler as a court jester labeled "Barcain with Blaine".
