- A group of Republicans try to push, pull, and coax the "G.O.P." elephant to jump a hurdle on a race course. William B. Allison stands on the far side of the hurdle. Philander C. Knox is pulling the elephant's trunk. William P. Frye, Nelson W. Aldrich, Stephen B. Elkins, Joseph G. Cannon, and Eugene Hale are pushing the elephant, which is being ridden by a plump man labeled "Stand Pat," wielding a whip. The hurdle has four bars, the lowest labeled "Cost of Living 1896," the next "Cost of Living 1900," then "Cost of Living 1904," and the highest "Cost of Living 1908."
