A party of patches

A party of patches
Creator: Judge Magazine
Date: June 6, 1891
This political cartoon drawn by Bernard Gilliam was copied from the satirical magazine Judge presents the Republican perception of the People's (Populist) Party. The artist depicts the People's Party as a hot air balloon made up of a patchwork of pieces, with each piece labeled with the name of the political organization or party that has been subsumed under the banner of the Populists. Some of the more recognizable "patches" include the Prohibition Party, the Greenback Party, the Farmer's Alliance, and the Knights of Labor Party. Inside the balloon's basket are two leading Populists from Kansas, William Peffer and "Sockless" Jerry Simpson.


Give up all

Give up all
Creator: Topeka State Journal Company
Date: May 29, 1901
This article discusses Henry W. Young's stance on the fusion of the Democratic and Populist (People's) Parties. Young, a former senator and editor of the Kansas Populist, had concluded that it would be in the Populists' best interest to vote Democratic in the 1902 election. Young was convinced that "the leaven of Populism has permeated the whole mass of the Democratic party," making the Democratic platform one that supported many Populist ideas. In explaining this decision Young referred to the chairman of the Democratic State Central Committee, Mack Love, who had encouraged Populists to align with the Democrats. In the election of 1902 the Populists did join the Democratic Party.
