President Cleveland stands on the right, holding an axe labeled "Political Wisdom," in a forest where he has been cutting trees labeled "Gold Standard." Approaching from the left is a procession led by Mark A. Hanna, as drum major, followed by William McKinley, Garret A. Hobart, Benjamin Harrison, Thomas B. Reed, George F. Hoar, John Sherman, Henry Cabot Lodge, and others. One is carrying a banner that states, "The Repubican Party is unreservedly for Sound Money - the existing Gold Standard must be preserved. Rep. Platform." Caption: He blazed the path that they have got to follow.
