A sop to Cerberus
Print shows Chester Alan Arthur offering a "Bill Excluding Chinese for 10 Years," in the shape of a Chinese man's face, to a three-headed Cerberus labeled "Western Vote" with the heads labeled "Demagogue, Hoodlum, [and] Irish." At Arthur's feet is a basket labeled "Sops for Everybody," and he holds a rope behind his back labeled "2nd Term Aspirations." The Cerberus is guarding the narrow path through the forest to the White House labeled "1884," which shines in the distance.
