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.

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”.
