President Theodore Roosevelt stands on one side of a scaffold, holding a large sculpted arm with a huge stick labeled "The Big Stick" for placement on a large sculpture of a female figure labeled "Inter-State Commerce Laws." On the other side of the scaffold is a man labeled "The Rail Road" directing Nelson W. Aldrich, Stephen B. Elkins, and Joseph B. Foraker to use instead a much smaller arm labeled "Delay" and "Fines." Caption: A difference of opinion as to what will fit the lady.
