Complete HarpWeek Explanation:
The message of this back-page cartoon is that William Jennings Bryan’s association with Tammany Hall, whose leadership was under investigation for their role in the corrupt Ice Trust scandal, has killed the effectiveness of the Democratic presidential nominee’s use of the business-trust issue against President William McKinley and the Republicans.
