Image of front cover of The Days' Doings

The Fifth of November at Chelsea. - The sanctimonious guys of the past season who tried to Burke the amusements of the people.

Q The illustrator of the front cover for this illustrated journal, dated 4 November 1871, is using the celebration of Guy Fawkes Day for the basis of his satire. I would be most grateful for any clues as to what upset the public at large?
