- An elderly man labeled "The Law," with a long beard and holding a broken gun labeled "Fines," peers at a group of bloated criminals standing and sitting on the porch of "The Jolly Grafter's Inn, Successor to Ye Stern Justice" who are laughing at the old man before them. Those on the porch are labeled "Big Offender, Respectable Crook, Handy Judge [with a glass of] Judicial Favors, Corporate Lawyer [with mugs of] Legal Aid, Tax Dodger, Special Privilege, Insurance Grafter, Corrupt Business, Rail Road Merger, [and the] Oil, Coal, [and] Beef Trust[s]." On a table is a newspaper labeled "The Daily Graft," and growling at the man is a dog labeled "Subsidized Press."
