Remarks: A rare cartoon portraying Harriman as a builder and fixer rather than just an acquirer. Here he is trying to nurse the Erie Railroad -- a broken down plug -- back to health. The other horses in the barn, labeled Illinois Central and Southern Pacific, are saying "He's stung this time all right."
