- Cartoon depicts President Roosevelt, in the GOP back-yard, standing atop a box which is on top of a barrel and leaning over a fence. His comments are directed at Attorney General Knox who is holding a paddle labeled "Sherman and Interstate Commerce Laws." Knox is about to paddle the rear end of a very large boy who is labeled "The Trust." This boy has his head turned to the right and is broadly smiling with his right hand slightly covering it. The left hand of the boy is protecting his rear end. Caption: "Roosevelt (to Knox): Make all the noise you can; but remember, we can't afford to hurt him."
