This cartoon, published in the German-language newspaper Iowa Staats-Anzeiger on November 9, 1889, after the election of Democratic candidate Horace Boies, proclaims, in translation, “The end of the Prohibition Party in Iowa.” The patient wears a nightcap labeled “Rep[ublican] Party,” and the flask on the nightstand contains “Temp[erance] Reform.” For a German American’s account of the effects of Prohibition in nineteenth-century Iowa, see the feature article in this issue.
