John D. Rockefeller, as Belshazzar, sits on a throne above a group of capitalists and politicians enjoying a feast of such dishes as "Draw Back Bon-Bons, Fruits of Monopoly, [and] Rebate Plums." The festivities are interrupted by a hand appearing from above holding "The Big Stick" and writing the words "Rate Legislation." Caption: "And the King saw the part of the hand that wrote. Then the King's countenance was changed and his thoughts troubled him." [Daniel 5:5-6]
