Given the tendency of some here to portray the Democrats as the opponents of Republican corruption, I note that the Democratic National Convention was held in Tammany Hall and that Boss Tweed was elected one of its vice-presidents:

Much jocularity over a petition from women for the vote. If the men in the hall only knew that they would soon be forgotten and the women would emerge the heroes:
