This cartoon presents William McKinley, Republican congressman from Ohio, as a merchant offering cheap whiskey as an incentive to buy a high-priced wool suit. The image is a critical commentary on the Republican platform stance to eliminate internal taxes (which would include those on alcohol) in order to cut the federal surplus while upholding high tariffs.
