My dear Sir:-

:-r. Thos. E. Will, President,
Fruitcrest Association,
Okeelanta,
Sflorida.

Dear 3.ir:--

Yours of the 21st inst. to the Governor of

this state has been referred to us. Under the so-call],

Anti-trust Law of Oklahoma the Attorney General and the

Corporation Commission are given certain jurisdiction to'

proceed against companies who practice discrimination

by selling at a higher price in one locality than in

another. under these laws the Attorney General and the

Corporation Commission have at various times filed proceed-

ings against oil companies for discrimination in the price

of gasoline. Under Section 823b, iKevised Laws of Oklahoma,

1910, the Attorney General and the Corporation Commission

could probably proceed against oil companies who charge an

exorbitant price for gasoline on the grounds that the method

r' of handling gasoline amounts to monopoly.

Yours very truly,



PA'V-cm. Commissioner.

December 30, 1915.




Mr. Thomas E. Will,
Fruitcrest (Florida) Association,
Okeelanta, Florida.

Dear r 4:Will:

In reply to your request for the Weekly News Letter,

transmitted through Senator Fletcher, I beg leave to say that

we have found it possible to add your name to the list.

Ordinarily, it is not possible to comply with requests

for the Weekly News Letter, which is designed primarily for the

crop correspondents, those collaborating with the Department,

and editors. It happens, however, that the cancellation of a

name on the list makes a copy available.

Very sineergly yours,




Assistant Secretary.

FRUITCREST (FLORIDA) ASSOCIATION
THOMAS E. WILL, PRESIDENT AND MANAGER

OKEELANTA. FLORIDA


The Fruitcrest Plan
OF
Settlement and
Development

LAND OWNERSHIP: The indi-
vidual owns his farm tract and
building lot. The community owns
the forty-acre Central Square.
GROUPED AND ORGANIZED:
Buyers are not scattered, but
'1 GROUPED, and organized into an As-
sociation.
CENTRAL MANAGEMENT:
They choose a CENTRAL MANAGE-
MENT, whom they may also remove.
PIONEERING: This Management
cares for the Common Interests, in-
cluding the PIONEERING; the meim-
bers, meanwhile, enjoying "all the
comforts of home."
COMMON CAPITAL: To make
this possible, the Management is
provided with a COMMON CAPITAL
derived, at first, from the buyers'
payments, and, later, from collective
production and rentals.
LAND AT COST: That raising
this fund may not burden them, the
buyers are furnished their LAND AT
CosT; viz., at $20o.o00 per Acre, while
neighboring lands sell at $05.00 per
acre or more.
MUCH FOR LITTLE: The buyers'
total average outlay for Land. Fund
and an Unrivalled Plan INSURING
SuccEss thus falls far below what
others pay for land alone, bought
on a plan INVITING FAILURE.
EQUILIBRIUM: Individual af-
fairs are to be handled by the indi-
vidual; common affairs by the
community. This safeguards INm-
VIDUAL INITIATIVE and, from the
beginning, makes possible PUBLIC
OWNERSHIIP AND OPERATION of all
public utilities, including water,
light, transportation, communication,
power and co-operative store.
SPREADING: This community is
expected to organize surrounding
territory, SPREAD OVER TIE EvEir-
GLADES, and become a MODEL for
the settlement and development of
new countries elsewhere.


My dear Mr. Sherman:--

I wonder whether you received the deed
I sent you some time since for Mr.* Alen L.
Colton,of Washington,D.C. It was to go on
to Mrs. Marie R.Will,7so Randolph St.,N.W.
She writes that she has not seen it yet, and he
is getting anxious*


P.S.
the $30.00?


Sincerely yours, ,



Have the Suttens returned j


T.E.W.


This was held up a few days on account of not
being able to get stamps, but, it was finally
taken care of in that respect and was duly forwarded
as directed in your letter to Mrs. Will.
I trust you have received word of its receipt
before this.

Very respectfully,


Guy Sherman.
