TWO POLITICAL PRINTS BY VICTOR GILLAM:
One titled "Blundering Again! The Democrats Have Their Regular Shindy Just as They Come in Sight of Land.". 1883. Print shows a group of Democrats on a log raft that is breaking up within sight of land, with two logs labeled "New Jersey [and] New York" coming loose and drifting away; there is a small sail labeled "Democra[...] Record". Some are fighting amongst themselves, Allen G. Thurman is about to hit George Hoadly who is holding a paper labeled "Dem. Nomination for Gov. Ohio Hoadly", John Kelly is fighting with Hubert O. Thompson who is holding a knife labeled "County Dem", behind them is Alexander V. Davidson labeled "Irving Hall" and holding a knife, others seem on the brink of despair, including Abram S. Hewitt gnawing on a bone labeled "Tariff", Charles A. Dana defiant of fate, Thomas F. Bayard sitting with his elbows on his knees, Winfield Scott Hancock who appears to have succombed, Thomas Hendricks chewing on his fingers, an unidentified man searching the horizon, Henry Watterson, and Samuel J. Tilden, only Benjamin F. Butler shows any sign of hope as he points toward shore and the U.S. Capitol labeled "1884".
The other titled "Peace But Not Business. Uncle Sam - 'Darned if I ain't left again! I'm overstocked, I've got all the blessings of a high tariff, and here these fellows won't fight and give me a chance to sell my goods.'". Illustration shows a perplexed Uncle Sam standing in front of a store labeled "Notice - No Reciprocity in Trade Here" that is well-stocked with items available for international trade; a man labeled "Trade" is asleep at the counter. Across the narrow street of the marketplace sits Otto von Bismarck selling maps, and in the background are Nicholas II, holding a piece of paper that states "Let us have Truce", and John Bull shaking hands in front of their trade houses; a sign on the English shop states "Reciprocity in Trade". There is a small dog, wearing a fez, standing in the middle of the street.
