Grover Cleveland wearing a sign reading, "The Democratic Party cannot with honor undertake the battle of the people except under a Leader that represents it best traditions and purposes." He is sitting on a tomb "W.J. Bryan, Died: 1896 & 1900," with gravestones nearby for Tom Johnson, A.P. Gorman, Dave Hill, Richard Olney, and Judge Parker. Likely refers to the election of 1900 when W.J. Bryan was defeated for the second time (1896 was the first time) by Wm. McKinley. Bryan would run again and be defeated again in 1908.
