Original caption: 
A PERPLEXING PREDICAMENT Cabman: "Now I say, P'liceman, look here. What's a feller to do? I was told as to take these 'ere gents as has been a dinin' out, you know, to their homes. One was to go to Madison Square, another to the St. Nicholas, and the others elsewheres. Well, their friends carefully sorted 'em 'fore I started, an' now they've been and gone and got mixed up, till I don't know which is which!"
