- Print shows William E. Gladstone, possibly dressed as a Greek marathon runner, passing an "Altar of Peace" on which there appears to be a small fire and a rifle labeled "Coercion." A red military tunic and helmet have fallen to the ground near the altar. Several dogs labeled "Assassin, Ribbon Man, Desperado, Secret Society, [and] Fenian" attack Gladstone. Michael Davitt and Charles Stuart Parnell, with a leash labeled "Land League," struggle to hold onto the dogs. Davitt has stumbled over John Dillon; all three are lying on the ground. In the background, a man runs into the forest after stabbing two men who were wearing top hats and may have been British government officials.
