This cover cartoon reflects the results of a recent meeting between Democratic presidential nominee Grover Cleveland and representatives of the New York political machines of Senator David B. Hill and Tammany Hall. Dressed as dangerous bandits, Hill (left) and Tammany “Boss” Richard Croker (right) wink at each other in anticipation of the political spoils they will reap with a Cleveland victory. The candidate himself is shown short of stature and registering alarm with bulging eyes, sweaty brow, and leaping hat.
