Summary: Illustration shows a perspective view with the “Eye of the Law” at the vanishing point where the “little ones” shield the more important figures in the foreground; from small to large are the “Weigher, Appraiser, Inspector, Superintendent, Manager, Trust Scapegoat, Government Scapegoat, Sugar Trust Director ‘Don’t Touch Sugar Trust it gave to Your Campaign Fund’, [and] High Government Official ‘Don’t Touch Sugar. It gave to Our Campaign Fund'”.

Caption: The little ones close to the eye hide the big ones farther away.
