Political cartoon criticizing Casimir Welch for his corrupt practices. The drawing depicts Cas receiving with his right hand money from cement graft, water meters, lime and coal, policy wheels, cafe and corn whisky, gambling dens at 1228 Oak St. and 15th & Virginia, and "Judicial" decisions, all while holding a classic weight balance (symbol of justice) with his left hand. The background includes a bust of Lady Justice blushing. The caption reads, "Left Handed Justice as Dealt Out by Casimir John Joseph Welsh."
