Summary
Illustration shows President Cleveland stands directly behind a wall of flames labeled "Civil Service Reform"; behind him, working on the "Government Farm" are members of his cabinet, William C. Endicott with a hoe, Lucius Q.C. Lamar kneeling before a newly planted tree, Thomas F. Bayard working on a tree labeled "State Department", Daniel Manning holding a pot labeled "Treasury", Augustus H. Garland with a shovel, William C. Whitney adding supports to a tree labeled "Navy Department", and William F. Vilas with a watering can. In the foreground, locusts driven back by the smoke and overcome by the fumes lie on the ground and are about to be consumed by the flames, these include "Kelly, Dugro, Voorhees, Blackburn, McLean, Dana, Butler, H.O. Thompson, Chenowith, Higgins, [and] Aquila Jones". Two that seem unaffected are labeled "Hendricks" carrying a banner that states "To the Victors belong the Spoils" and "McLoughlin" [sic].
