The incredible political scandal trial of corrupt kingmaker Abe Ruef has begun in San Francisco, and Herriman on the 16th comments in this cartoon that Ruef could well bring down a whole raft of the bribe-givers. Sadly we'll see little of Herriman's commentary on this trial for awhile as he's about to begin a phase of mainly doing sports cartoons. I do love Herriman's perceptive and funny sports editorials, but the Ruef trial was one wild ride and it would be great fun to have Herriman's commentary throughout.

Lowes had been a boxer, (he was the first man to professionally fight Dick Burge, the best English lightweight of his day) but was by this time primarily known as one of the preeminant boxing trainers, managers, and bookmakers in England.
