The Janet A. Ginsburg Chicago Tribune Collection

While the commissioners quarrel the unfortunate suffer

A woman who represents Chicago holds a broom and points toward Dunning Asylum while looking at a group of men who are standing on a mat labeled "The murder of Pucik." This cartoon relates to the murder of George Pucik and the declaration that George Gough and J. P. Anderson were unfit to be attendants at the Cook County Hospital for the Insane, also called Dunning Asylum.
