From the Totem of the Green Light Wampum They Would Bring
15 December 2018 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

Here is a short satirical movie produced by American Mutoscope and Biograph. The men carrying lanterns and big bags of money are straight out of the satirical song "Tammanny" that was promptly adopted by that New York political machine. One elderly lady who heard me singing it was enchanted. "My father and his friends used to sing it on election night," she said. Then along came Fiorella Laguardia and despite New York still being a Democrat's town, well, there isn't the patronage to hand out any more. Pity.

It's not Tammanny being mocked in this one. It's Mayor Seth Low and his Republican/Reform fusion party. That's why they're carrying those lanterns, supposedly to illuminate the sins of the Democrats, and the money bags, to buy votes.
