I'm interested in knowing where the cartoon was published and what year.

Mark,
From what I can gather, the cartoon above, “The White Man’s Burden (Apologies to Rudyard Kipling)” was published in the journal Judge, which was affiliated with the Republican Party, on April 1, 1899. The artist is Victor Gillam.
--Source: The Ohio State University Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum

Kipling's poem by the same name was originally published in McClure’s Magazine, February, 1899 (Vol. XII, No. 4) apparently as a response to the Spanish-American War, as the following makes clear:

Thanks Ezra. I'm proofreading a manuscript right now and one of the chapters is about multiculturalism. I think this would make an excellent addition to the forthcoming book.

Take up the White Man's burden, Send forth the best ye breed
Go bind your sons to exile, to serve your captives' need;
To wait in heavy harness, On fluttered folk and wild—
Your new-caught, sullen peoples, Half-devil and half-child.



People call Kipling an apologist for imperialism, but here he was really warning the Americans that ruling over devils is a thankless task that exhausts your own people.

A good place to find images like that is eBay. Search "racist" and you'll find pages and pages of postcards and such with similar cartoons.
