||This cartoon accuses Democrats of engaging in vote fraud; in this case, grants
of citizenship prior to the end of the legally required waiting period, and
repeat voting. The new recruit is of course a working-class Irish-American, who
could be working for money (offered by the figure second from the left?),
alcohol (note the whiskey bottle), patronage, or other benefits. The portraits
on the wall are of Frank Blair and Horatio Seymour (top, l-r), the Democratic
national ticket, and John Hoffman (bottom), the Democratic gubernatorial
candidate in New York.
