- President McKinley stands at the edge of a mud-hole labeled "Slander" and "Abuse," his right hand raised in a "stop" gesture, and holding in his left hand a mud-splattered American flag. Three diminutive figures are standing in the mud-hole in the process of throwing mud. They are William Jennings Bryan, Joseph Pulitzer labeled "N.Y. World," and William Randolph Hearst labeled "N.Y. Journal." The U.S. Capitol is in the background.
