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)”

Summary: Illustration shows on the left a cartoon drawn by L.M. Glackens that shows “The Trusts” as bloated, clownish figures that frighten “The Common People”, and on the right, a large gorilla-like monster with human head, holding Liberty in one arm and a large coin in the other, as it topples the dome on the U.S. Capitol with one foot.

Caption: For years the Trust has been pictured as this, – and laughed at. Why not know Him for what He really is – a Brute with brains?
