This cartoon appeared on the cover of the weekly Queensland Figaro and Punch on 14 July 1888 and depicts a stereotypical image of a grotesque Chinese man with gaping mouth, protruding teeth and a pug nose, about to be kicked by a tall strapping Australian bushman. The cartoon is titled 'THAT PEKIN EDICT' and has two captions. In the first the cowering man, called 'John Chinaman', threatens the bushman with being eaten by his countrymen. The second refers to a fictitious edict supposedly indicating the Chinese were planning to conquer Australia.
