Description:
Thomas F. Bayard carries a banner that shows a portrait of Thomas Jefferson and is labeled "Jeffersonian Principles," with a streamer at top that states "A Government of the People, by the People, for the People." Attached to the corners of the banner are ribbons that are being pulled in different directions, tearing the banner in the process. At the upper left, a ribbon labeled "Civil Service Reform" is pulled by George H. Pendleton, holding a notice that states "Civil Service Reform will Save the Country." At bottom left, a ribbon labeled "High Tariff" is pulled by Samuel J. Randall, holding a notice that states "High Tariff benefits the Laborer." At center is Bayard with a notice in his pocket that states "Let us dodge every question." On the bottom right, a ribbon labeled "To the Victors belong the Spoils" is held by John Kelly, along with a notice that states "The Spoils Policy is the Safest Policy." At top right, a ribbon labeled "Free Trade" is pulled by Abram S. Hewitt, holding a notice that states "Free Trade benefits the Laborer."
