This political cartoon shows a wealthy man wearing a top hat with the words "Protected Monopoly" inscribed on it attempting to stamp out a fuse labeled "Canal Supply Question." The fuse leads to a large stick of dynamite with the words "The Tariff" written on the side. The cartoon most likely refers to the divisive Payne-Aldrich tariff of 1909 that proved too high for reformers and too low for conservatives.
