Summary
Illustration shows James G. Blaine standing on a racetrack labeled "Republican Race Track" in an arena, apparently frozen in position as his tattooed ghost races past him and a sign that states "Presidential Race Against Time - Blaine to Beat His Own Record". In the background is a tent with banner labeled "J. Blaine" and decked with floral wreaths that state "With Compliments J. Gould" and "With Compliments from C. Field", also one shaped like a horseshoe from "R. Sage". Whitelaw Reid stands outide the tent, holding a bucket and a sponge labeled "Tribune" and W.W. Phelps peaks through the flaps with a concerned look on his face. Among those in the grandstand on the left are Almon M. Clapp, George M. Robeson, Alonzo B. Cornell, John Roach, and Thomas J. Brady.
