Tiflis Sheet

The newspaper is called Tiflis Sheet (Тифлисский листок) and the implication of the caricature seems to be that the paper has no higher purpose than making money.

Khristofor Khachaturov served as editor from 1901-1916. Although there were co-editors, Khachaturov was associated with the paper longest, and perhaps is the man pictured here.
