This cartoon represents consolidation of the shift in cartoonist W. A. Rogersís attitude toward Republicans and the 1896 presidential contest. Before the Republican National Convention, he and Harper's Weekly editor Carl Schurz lampooned GOP candidates, especially frontrunner William McKinley, for waffling on the money question. The Republican Partyís emphatic endorsement of the gold standard at its national convention in June was met with hardy approval by the journalís staff, a sentiment reflected afterward in Rogersís cartoons.
