A sequel to "The Populistsí Trap," this back-page cartoon published in the Harper's Weekly issue reporting the results of the Republican National Convention shows that the GOP Elephant did not fall for free silver, but stood for the gold standard. The aggressive pachyderm shakes the Populist palm tree, disarming its warriors: Senator William Morris Stewart, Senator Marion Butler, and Senator William Peffer.
