This cover image can be seen as the passing of the torch from President Chester A. Arthur to the new President, Grover Cleveland. Columbia is seen in the background linking the two men with her virtue and moral strength.  Both men were champions of civil service reform and battled against corrupt politicians. Cleveland had a high level of respect for Arthur because they shared many moral and political philosophies and goals.

Two men stand in the doorway of the White House.
