Regarding the date, 1887 is too late as Umegatani retired in 1885. So, I feel 1884 may be right. Now, for the other sumo, there is a 山 in the cartouche between 若 and 島, which should read Wakayamashima then. Strange as it is only a bit different from Wakashima.But 若島 Wakashima only started his career in 1891. So, it should be another sumo in the print...
