Shows Europeans as slaves of Maori landlords. In the centre is a large Maori man, smoking a cigar and having his boots polished by a young Pakeha male who is using 'Te Kuiti polish'. The Maori man has a bottle of alcohol at his side, labelled 'cold tea', with another finished bottle beside it. In the left background is a whare labelled 'Bank of Te Kuiti' and 'You pay rent here - kapai'with another Maori man happily accepting a large bag of money from a European, while in the right background, a procession of Maori men are advancing, followed and supported by European men. Refers to the perception that Maori are overcharging for the rents on their land.
