English: Political cartoon showing aftermath of the Spanish American War. Uncle Sam balances his new possessions, which are depicted as savage children. The figures are identified as Puerto Rico, Hawaii, Cuba, Philippines, and "Ladrones" (the Mariana Islands). Figures representing other nations look on. John Bull says via the caption "It's really most extraordinary what training will do. Why, only the other day I thought that man unable to support himself."
Italiano: 1899: Vignetta satirica sull'Inquirer. Dopo la Guerra ispano-americana, lo Zio Sam tiene in equilibrio le sue nuove conquiste, dipinte come bambini selvaggi. Nella figura notiamo le Hawaii (in alto), le Filippine, Cuba, Porto Rico e le Isole Marianne (fino all'inizio del XX secolo chiamate Ladrones). In basso le potenze mondiali osservano. La didascalia è un commento ironico di John Bull: "Ciò che riesce a fare l'allenamento è veramente straordinario perché, soltanto l'altro giorno, pensavo che quell'uomo non fosse nemmeno in grado di sostenere se stesso".
Date 1899(1899)
