Description:

William McKinley drives a large circus carriage labeled "McKinley's Presidential Band Wagon" pulled by the Republican Elephant labeled "G.O.P." The carriage has come to a stop in front of a sign at the edge of an abyss, which states, "Danger! Results of the McKinley Bill. Decline of wages. Desperate Labor Strikes, and Lock Outs. 1,000,000 Men Out of Employment. Falling off of Customs Revenues $157,000,000. Disappearance of Treasury Surplus of $100,000,000. Net Loss of Gold in Exports $200,000,000." The abyss blocks McKinley from reaching the United States Capitol, seen at far right. The "Band" in the wagon is comprised of "M.A. Hanna," Andrew "Carnegie," John D. "Rockefeller," Theodore and possibly Henry O. "Havemeyer," and Whitelaw Reid playing a drum labeled "N.Y. Tribune." Marching behind the wagon are men carrying banners labeled "Trusts" and "Monopoly."
