Summary
Print shows the Russian Bear playing a fiddle labeled "Politics", around it's waist is a belt with papers labeled "French Military Secrets" tucked behind, and a cord extending from it's right wrist is connected to a restraint labeled "Treaty" around the neck of a dancing soldier labeled "France". The French soldier may refer to (and looks somewhat like) Ferdinand W. Esterhazy who was involved in the Dreyfus Affair and the sale of military secrets to Germany.
