Summary: Illustration shows an old hag labeled “Tradition” sitting in a chair labeled “Justice” and holding a large balance scale labeled “LAW” with ten men on the right and one smug man labeled “Stubbornness, Ignorance, [and] Prejudice” sitting in the tray on the left next to a sack labeled “Venality”; he outweighs the other ten. Uncle Sam is attempting to kick the man out of the balance; at his feet is a paper that states “‘Remember, you want twelve jurymen and we want only one’ (Monopolist)”

Caption: We shall see the day when Uncle Sam will kick the obstructionist out of the jury-box.

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.
