- Uncle Sam as Tantalus is bound with ropes to posts labeled "High Protective Tariff" and "Free Silver Agitation" by two men labeled "Protected Manufacturer" and "Silverite." The men are preventing Uncle Sam from satisfying his desire for "Prosperity," depicted as a female figure holding a cornucopia, separated from Uncle Sam by an "Ocean of Politics," and standing among factories spewing smoke along the waterfront.
