Summary
Print shows a group of Democrats, identified as "Hill, Murphy, Vest, Bland, Matthews, Morgan, Harris, Crisp, Tillman, Altgeld, Campbell, [and] Stevenson", some wear fezes, others are wearing turbans and other articles of Middle Eastern dress, at a bier labeled "Dem. Free Coinage Platform" on which is the expired Democratic Donkey labeled "Democratic Party"; a ladder labeled "Chicago Convention" has been placed against it and the "Chicago Nominee", wearing the black shroud of a widow, climbs to the top. Tillman places more straw on the bier with a pitchfork, while Altgeld and Campbell use torches to ignite fuses to burn the donkey; Hill and Murphy console each other.
