An arm strikes a staff labeled "Action" against a rock representing "Senatorial Deadlock at Springfield" allowing water to pour forth with the label "Proper Representation of Illinois Interest at Washington." The United States Capitol building is surrounded by a "Tariff Reform" cloud in the background.

The cartoon illustrates the Illinois General Assembly's 1913 deadlock over the selection of a new United States Senator during debates over tariff reform in Washington, D.C.
