Who Killed Hancock?

who killed hancock (1883)


Macbeth-Dana:—“Never shake thy gory locks at me! I’ll bet you Five Thousand Dollars thou canst not say I did it!


The LOC says:

Print shows the ghost of Winfield Scott Hancock sitting on a throne in a banquet hall, Samuel J. Tilden pushes a frightened Charles A. Dana, as Macbeth, toward Hancock, Dana makes wild statements while waving around a note for $5000.00; a chalice has fallen to the floor, spilling "Harmony". Samuel S. Cox, as a court jester, sits on the floor next to the throne with "S.S. Cox's Joke Book" at his knee. The room is filled with courtiers, among them are Thomas A. Hendricks, Grover Cleveland who has fallen backwards onto John Kelly, Thomas F. Bayard, Samuel J. Randall, David Davis, Henry Watterson, Abram S. Hewitt, Hubert O. Thompson, George Hoadly, and Benjamin F. Butler; all seem to be sitting in judgement of Dana.


Lazy Curator™ sez: And William Russell Grace, behind Butler.

And a pineapple. Don’t forget the pineapple!

I seem to be throwing you a bone here. Probably because this is the first time in forever I’ve posted an image of Unofficial Weekly Puck Mascot and Breakout Superstar Hubert O. Thompson. And he’s barely in this one! Look on the bright side, he could be like poor George Hoadly. I think this is only the second time he’s ever appeared in The Weekly Puck, and it’s likely to be the last. Probably not even worth a tag. Sorry, Hoadly.

John Kelly’s crazed expression totally sells this one. And wasn’t Gillam a sadist to have him and hated rival Grover Cleveland *gasp* touching?

Yes, I do have the entry for two weeks in the future already selected. No, it’s not that picture of Terence Powderly gazing lustfully at Jay Gould’s plump, shapely buttocks, longing to spank them. Again. That’s from Judge, anyway. Though I do believe that Bernhard Gillam is likewise responsible for that infamous image (don’t quote me on that, though).

Collapse of Another Buddensiek Structure



by Bernhard Gillam (1885)

collapse of another buddensiek structure (1885)


John Roach.—“It’s all Whitney’s fault. If he hadn’t knocked so hard, it would be standing now.”


Lazy Curator™ sez: Lots to talk about this time, and not entirely all about this specific image, so let’s get started.

Image shows William C. Whitney (Grover Cleveland’s Secretary of the Navy during his first term) brandishing a club, standing before a door with prominent dents on it below a collapsed brick building bearing a sign reading “John Roach & Co. Ships Built for Repairs.” Whitney is also shown holding a sheet of paper reading “Good Work Demanded for Good Money, Sec’y Whitney.” John Roach stands in the foreground, pointing with his thumb and bearing a folded piece of paper reading “John Roach’s Assignment.” He is accompanied by George Robeson and William Chandler.

It’s the same cast of characters as this image. I miss the comical expressions of that one, but it’s Gillam and thus of high quality. On a related note, good God, I have been misspelling Gillam’s name for how long exactly? Six years? Should I change my title to Idiot Curator™? In any case, I’ve taken on the task of gradually fixing my ridiculous mistake as I gradually plug on with the arduous task of repairing the Weekly Puck archive by switching the image hosting. Have I mentioned lately that Photobucket sucks? Added a William Chandler tag for good measure.

The reference to Buddensiek is topical, regarding a corrupt architect of hastily-built tenements that were poorly built and collapsed, killing the occupants.

Puck’s Plan to Rid the Country of Two Embarrassments



Give Grant the Surplus, and Let Him Spend It on a Little Court of His Own



by Bernhard Gillam (1884)

The LOC says:

Illustration shows Ulysses S. Grant as a king sitting on a throne, surrounded by his courtiers, identified as Rev. J.P. Newman, Henry Ward Beecher, Roscoe Conkling, Jay Gould, George W. Childs, William Belknap, G. Jones, Senator John P. Jones, Simon Cameron, James Donald Cameron, James D. Fish, John A. Logan, T.C. Platt, George M. Robeson, [and] Joseph W. Keifer".


Lazy Curator™ sez: Conkling looks a little puffy here. Off-model, or some kind of commentary?

Needless to say, Gilliam hits another one out of the park. Is there any artwork this man produced that wasn’t amazing?

    Lazy Curator™ sez: First of all, let me apologize for the clunky seam on this one. This was the only full-sized image where both sides were in color that I could find. Image shows Grover Cleveland leading pilgrims to the Capitol, marked 1884. Some of those pictured: Charles A. Dana and Henry Watterson (blowing horns), L. Q. C. Lamar (crawling on the rock), Samuel Tilden (riding piggy-back), Allen Thurman, Thomas Bayard, John Kelly (leopard-skin is a good look for him!) and Benjamin Butler.

    Uncle Sam,—“We have heard from Mr. Cleveland. Now then, Mr. Blaine, you made this issue; it is your turn to step up and—Tell the Truth!”


    elections.harpweek.com says:

    This cartoon contrasts the character and scandals of the two major-party presidential nominees, Democrat Grover Cleveland and Republican James Blaine. When allegations arose that, in his youth, Cleveland had fathered a child out of wedlock, the Democratic nominee told his campaign managers to "Tell the Truth." Supporters contended that his actions after the indiscretion, and following its revelation in the press in the summer of 1884, were both exemplary. Cleveland stands honorably before a jury of voters, one hand in his coat in a Napoleonic gesture. Uncle Sam, rising under an inscribed quote about mercy, taken from an Alexander Pope poem, demands that Blaine now take the witness stand.

    The Republican nominee, however, attempts to sneak away. He is dressed in a garish, checked suit of a confidence-man (swindler), with the pockets stuffed with papers which identify his railroad scandals. The gun on the table, with the tag "Blaine's Substitute Gun-Never Used," refers to criticism of Cleveland for hiring a substitute to fight for him in the Civil War. Blaine served in the Maine state legislature and Congress during the Civil War. Although "Blaine's Private Life" is locked, a scandal would arise concerning his marriage and whether he, too, fathered a child out of wedlock. The cartoonist erroneously blames Blaine himself for breaking the Cleveland scandal to the press.


    Lazy Curator™ sez: I’m posting photos from the election of 1884 again. Wonder why? I don’t usually ask this, but could we have history repeat this time, just this once? Please?

    Chorus of Non-Magnetic Swindlers.—“Why shouldn’t we be vindicated, too? We saw various channels in which we could be useful. We were no deadheads.”



    The LOC says:

    Illustration shows James G. Blaine, dressed like a Roman statesman, standing on a pedestal that states "What are you going to do about it", a phrase attributed to Boss Tweed. The ghost of Tweed stands behind Blaine, weeping, holding a paper that states "Why wasn't I vindicated? I cast my anchor windward too!!" At the base of the pedestal are books and papers, some labeled "20 Years Casting My Anchor to Windward", "Burn this", and "20 Years No Deadhead". Whitelaw Reid stands at center, appealing to Blaine. On the left are various bank officers who committed crimes and got caught, some hold papers that state "I saw various channels in which I could be useful. President Dodd, Bank Breaker", "I cast an anchor to windward in the Marine Bank. J.D. Fish, Bank Breaker", "I would 'sacrifice a great deal to get a settlement' Captain Howgate, U.S.A., Defaulter", "I did not prove a deadhead in the enterprise. A.S. Warner, Albion Bank Breaker", "I received very large sums of money without one dollar of expense. Ferdinand Ward, Swindler". Albert S. Warner was President of The First National Bank of Albion, O.L. Baldwin was a cashier at the Mechanics' National Bank in Newark, Henry W. Howgate (1834-1901) was a Disbursing Officer in the U.S. Signal Service.


    Lazy Curator™ sez: Ah, Gillam, you never disappoint!

    Should I feel bad for wanting to comfort the ghost of Tweed? Don’t answer that question.

Two dogs labeled "N.Y. Tribune" and "N.Y. Times" sniff at his heels. Among those present are George M. Robeson, Ulysses S. Grant, John Logan, James G. Blaine, Chester A. Arthur (dressed as a woman, serving food and drinks), Charles J. Folger, George F. Hoar, Joseph W. Keifer, Horace F. Page, William Mahone (doing a hand-stand), James D. Cameron, Roscoe Conkling, John Sherman, George F. Edmunds, John Percival Jones and Thomas C. Platt.


    Lazy Curator™ sez: Ah, Gillam, you never disappoint. Some of the expressions here are priceless, Sherman’s and Platt’s in particular, likewise “Little Billy” doing a handstand (still needs readjusting?).

    Can’t add to the Conkling in Women’s Clothes tally. As you can plainly see, he gave the dress to Chester.
