- President William McKinley appears as Moses with two rays of light emitting from his top hat, and wearing a red cape labeled "McKinley." He stands next to a large rock labeled "Prosperity" that has split and is spewing money toward a throng of people representing mostly the working class and the poor who stream from the factories in the background. Caption: The people foolishly think that McKinley will be able to tap the rock of prosperity, à la Moses, and make money flow like water.
