Broad Brush: Cartoons Magazine Centennial, May 1912, Part 14

We close up our coverage of the May 1912 fifth issue of Cartoons Magazine, with a hodge-podge of topics.

Above, two cartoons concerning the Post Office using the Interstate Commerce Commission, to limit private carriers of packages, out of fear that such competition would drive the Post Office itself out of business. Much, much later, this competition was allowed. Since, the Post Office has survived but struggled (only to next come head-to-head against electronic transactions…). Cartoons are by Rollin Kirby and Frank Michael Spangler.

Click on the above & below pictures, to view the cartoons in detail, and read their captions.

Above, the new Republic of China, coming up against Russian aggression concerning Mongolia. Below, an openly racist cartoon from the Cuban publication, Havana Discusión, showing white or light-skinned Cuba, rejecting the “Colored Independent Party”.

Above, Kaiser Wilhelm depicted by cartoonist Charles Henry Sykes, knocking at the door of the Ananias Club. “Ananias Club” — named for a man who fell dead when he lied to the apostle Peter — was understood in the day to be a round about way of calling someone a “liar”.

Below, Charles Lewis Bartholomew (“Bart”) and others, regarding tariffs.
