- A hapless army of clergymen assaults a fortress labeled "Non-Sectarian Institution" around a building labeled "House of Refuge" with a battering ram labeled "Freedom of Worship Bill." One bishop is carrying a military standard labeled "In hoc signo vinces" (In this sign you will conquer) that shows a ballot box labeled "Irish Vote." Defending the ramparts are newspaper editors, including Puck. In the middle distance is a building labeled "Public School" and in the background, atop a hill, is a statue labeled "Constitution" that states, "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion."

The attack on our outer ramparts - first the house of refuge - then the public schools - then - the Constitution!
