* VOTE "YES"

ON THE

Broward Drainage District Referendum

This referendum ought to carry, BIG. It's the ONE THING that will help the Back Country.
And the Back Country will then help thf town.
Lauderdale needs the Glades worse than the Glades need Lauderdale. Lauderdale can't live
on tourists. SHE MUST PRODUCE.
S That means her Everglades must be farmed. Then, as in Dade County, factories will follow.
These will bring pay-rolls, and a YEAR-ROUND TOWN.
But the Everglades must have reclamation funds. Hence the Broward Drainage District must
sell its bonds.
But it must first have more people and more values in -it. This the bond-buyers insist on.
This won't cost Lauderdale one cent. It will cost Broward County one little mill on the dollar, about
$7,000 or $8,000 per year.
But the new taxes and new business this will bring will turn this little outgo into a BIG INCOME.
Further, it will help put a foundation under Lauderdale, and make it a city.

OFFICE COUNTY ENGINEER

WEST PALM BEACH TELEPHONE 4545
JAKE BOYD, Engineer PALM BEACH COUNTY, FLORIDA P. O. BOX 3636

November 16th, 1928








Mr. Thomas E. Will,
Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

Dear Mr. Will:-

I received your letters and ask
that you please excuse my delay in answering them
but you may be assured that the County will do all
that is possible to restore the Okeelanta road.
It is all dependent upon having the money available
for the work. If it was just a matter of a bridge
or two the problem would be comparatively simple,
but I find upon examination that considerable of the
roadway was washed out and that traffic over the road
would be impossible until this is restored. Consequently,
it becomes necessary to find the money to pay for the
restoration of the road work.

Very truly yours,



Jake Boyd, County Engineer.

Dr. Thomas E. Will

Fort Lauderdale, Florida.


Dear Doctor"



Yours of the 23rd has been re-

ceived.

I wonder if Captain Jack has made

any estimate of the cost of the building, or build-

ings, of refuge at Lake Okeechobee. This is quite

important and, of course, will depend on the kind of

building he has in mind. I wish you would confer with

him about that, so I can have that data before me.

It is doubtful if an appropriation can

be had until the matter has been submitted by the De-

partment and passed on by the Budget Director.

We may be able to make some headway and I will

do my best.
Sincerely yours,



jW^^a^^i.~~~J

,pIF'


The following letter to Senator Fl-tcher is published with the
request that all interested individuals and civic bodies get behind this pro-

posal with letters to theirUT.S. Senators and Representatives, that we may s

strike while the iron is hot, and secure the necessary action at the coming

session of Cowngress.

Thos, E. Will, President
South Florida Development League 4.
Honorable Duncan U.Fletcher, -
U.S. Sonator,
Jacksonville,Florida.


ly dear Senator Fletcher:-

Please permit a word on our Okeechobee holocaust of September 16th --

absolutely need-less. May it never recurt

Personally, my feeling is intensified not merely by my long pioneering

experience there, and my nineteen-year struggle to help make the region habit-

able and cultivable, but also by the fact that my only son, an oldest
** I' ".J
inhabitant, escaped by a hair's breadth.

You recall our like tragedy of Sept. 18, 1926. In location, kind and

cause, ours was second to that; in destruction of human life, it was second,

also, but only to the Galveston catastrophe.

From our past correspondence, I know you fully appreciate the necessity

of adequate and early FLOOD PREVTrNTION in the Okeochoboe region. To the study

of practical modes, and the creation of the necessary sentiment to effect thi,

end, -- and thus save not only the Everglades but .ll of South Florida, as

well -- I have toiled terribly and ceaselessly since Scptombor 16th.

But while flood control waits, human life, in the Lake region must ?

again be made safo.

"Why?" Because, many, to live at all, MUST LIVE THERE. There is their "

all. They are not wanted elsewhere; and experience has taught them that---f

only and at last, the simple, elementary, essential conditions of life can be .

provided--there, of all places is TM PLACE at which to build their homos, enrn

their livings and rear their families.

Without this present protection, those pioneers are "in a strait betwi. .
. . . .f..' .h" ....
i,.,, -. k..' . r
while Rome burns."

To one citizon and official, nmong others, I must hero pay my tr lte lp

respect. Colmander R. L. Jack, of the United Statos Coast Guard, leoped tq '

the front with his life-saving f rces to relievea existing distress, Now he

seeks to prevent future distress. With his permission, I here outline his

plan.


'I


i





In an official recommendation to Washington, D.C., Captain Jack has

advised the erection, by the U.S.Coast Guard, which he represents, of one

or more buildings of refuge in the Lake Okeechobee country. Such a build-

ing would receive radio signals of the approach of storms, transmit these,

in good time, to the settlers, nd call them into a shelter so capacious, and

so skillfully and strongly built, as to afford ample protection till the danger

was past.

Buildings of this character have been constructed elsewhere by the

Coast Guard, as at Grand Isles, La. Regarding this, full data, including

size, plans, cost, etc. are available at Coast Guard Headquarters, Washington,

D.C.; thus making possible quick -oo g fi."our needs.

The total cost of one building, including lot deeded the Government, wi. .

probably be about $25,000..

That advantage may be taken of the Nation-wide sympathy aroused by our

calamity, it is felt that immediate action should be taken, in the coming short.

session of Congress, to secure the needful appropriation. This done, we a

assured that, to complete a building, but a few months will be required.

Following this, life will be safe; while orderly progress is taken, as we

earnestly trust it may be, to effect adequate and perfect flood control of Lake :

and vicinity.

Knowing your profound interest in this matter; and confident, as always,

of your fullest co-operation, I lay Captain Jack's outline before you, with the

earnest hope that, regardless of the rush accompanying the 3hort sessic-, this

may receive from Congress the treatment such an emergency deserves.


Very sincoroly you fiOr4. ,

(Signed) Thos. E. Will
President, South Florida Development

Dear Mr. Will:

Receipt is acknowledged of your letter of
the 1st inst. enclosing petition from the South Florida
Development League urging federal aid in the flood control
of Lake Okeechobee.

In reply thereto will state the Florida Delegation
has already secured the passage of special bills for the
improvement of this drainage area and the control of the
floods, which are now incorporated in the Rivers and Harbors
fill, H.R.14066. I have today impressed upon the Chairman
of the Committee in the strongest terms possible the necessity
of securing the early passage of the bill. Let me assure you

Mr. Thos. i. Wills
229 Byron Ave. N. W.
Fort Lauderdale, Florida

Dear Mr. Wills:

We have just received the statement from the Broward County
Tax Collector for the taxes of forty acres of land situated in
section #3, township #51, range #40, of Broward County.

State Tax -------------------------$ 3.06
County Tax ------------------------- 11.90
Special Road Tax -------------------- 6.80
Special School Tax ----------------- 4.76
Port Tax --------------------------- 8.50
Fire Warden Tax --------------------- 4.50
One-mill Tax ------------------------ .34
Acreage Drainage Tax ---------------- 45.00
Napoleon B. Broward Drainage Tax ---- .34
Napoleon Drainage District Tax ------ 45.00
Total -----$130.20

Then we find that a tract of land in Palm Beach County, about
one-hundred acres scattered around, is assessed $114.43, and twenty
acres in Hendry County is $22.76, making a total of $267.39 on this
land of about 157 acres. A large part of this is drainage. It seems
that the taxes are way out of proportion to the value of the land,
and I am writing this to you to know how this drainage tax money is
being used. Can you send me some literature that will give me reliable
information, because it is a big question to keep up the taxes on
property that probably could not be sold at the present time near
the price it ought to bring in order to stand such taxes. Will you
kindly send me some information concerning the situation,for it is
making us groan to keep up the taxes. It is not only this year but
it has been this way for the last five years. If you will give me
some information concerning the situation it will be greatly appreciated.

Yours sincerely,

Dear Sir:
Under date of March 20, 1928 you
advised us that your bank had closed its doors
and that you need a little time in order to re-
finance. Nine months have now elapsed without
any further payments on your account.

immediate consideration, letting us have a sub-
stantial payment to apply on account at this
time, and oblige

Yours very truly,

VOTE "YES"

ON THE

Broward Drainage District Referendum


This referendum ought to carry, BIG. It's the ONE THING that will help the Back Country.
And the Back Country will then help the town.
Lauderdale needs the Glades worse than the Glades need Lauderdale. Lauderdale can't live
on tourists. SHE MUST PRODUCE.
That means her Everglades must be farmed. Then, as in Dade County, factories will follow.
These will bring pay-rolls, and a YEAR-ROUND TOWN.
But the Everglades must have reclamation funds. Hence the Broward Drainage District must
sell its bonds.
But it must fir-t have more people and more values in it. This the bond-buyers insist on.
This won't cost Lauderdale one cent. It will cost Broward County one little mill on the dollar, about
$7,000 or $8,000 per year.
But the new taxes and new business this will bring will turn this little outgo into a BIG INCOME.
Further, it will help put a foundation under Lauderdale, and make it a city.
Do you know how the Everglades have been carrying the Coast?
Do you know Broward's Everglades have paid in $700,000 or $800,000. most of which has
helped build the Coast, rather than the Everglades?
Do you know that, for 15 years, most of the 20,000 old Everglades buyers have been barred
out from their own properties. kept from voting, and taxed without representation?
Do you want to keep this up? Do you know that, badly as it hurts the Everglades buyers, it
hurts you still worse?
If you want to do justice to Evergladers and yourself at the same time, VOTE "Y E S" on
this referendum.
Some have said, '"We won't vote any more money to the old Board."
But do you know that these men are all out?
You ask, "Who will follow them?" I answer, "Let the Everglades owners name their own
board, by petition; and then let us all petition the Governor to appoint them. If, later, the Ever-
gladers want these men removed, let the Governor remove them." That's POPULAR GOVERN-
MENT, and it's the solution of this problem.
V'OTE "YES." And then help the Evergladers get their own kind of a Board.

mr.C.F.Wirner, eoy.,
S.Fla. Conservancy Dist.,
Miami,Fla.
My dear Mr'Wvnner:--
Thtee months having now elapsed since the storm,I am wondering what the outlook
is toward getting ott pumps in at Ukeelanta.
Our expelled settlerewant to return. In addition,new ones want to come in.
I recently hida long call by one who has bought there,near town( what isleft of
our town),wants to resume paying for his tract;and was much disappointed that
he could not begin using it right away- He has friends who would also like to.
come in from the north,establish homes in Okeelaata and help us again in building
the Typical Everglades,the Long-Suffering Saw Grass country.
But,at whatever loss to myself and the settle ment--oldest of them all.-I had to
warn him away--much against his will-steer him to some competing point,tho it be
Lauderdale--andtell him what little I could of our efforts to make The Oldest
Planned Settlement in the Upper Glades' again habitable.
That I may intelligently andtruthfully answer inquiries like this,will you
please tell met--
1--Whether any funds now exist for continuing the establishment of the pumping
plan$ at Okeelantat
2--If,so,when the work will be resumed?
3--How long it should then take to make the local pumping system a success?
very truly yours, y

1:o. 1, Bonda waiting to be sold, and when
sold will conpletet two pumping
ouilfits at Okeelanta.

hIo. 2 's soon as the bonds are sold.

'o. 3 About four months after they begin.

Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

Dear Sir:

Enclosed please find calculation for the 1922 State and

County taxes on N1/2 of NW Sec. 27-44-36 which amounts to $54.98

and which statement has been figured up to January 15th, 1929.

Our reason far aendigg this statement to you is because
P.O.
Mr. F.C. Allen, of Select Securities Company,Box 1750, Miami, Florida,

has asked for a tax deed application statement on this, and wanted

us to notify the owner before we advertised for tax deed.

There are other taxes against this piece of property

for State and County, State Drainage and Highway Drainage taxes,

but we are not sending you a statement on anything, except the

certificate on which he is applying for tax deed.

Yours truly,

Fred E,, Fenno, Clerk,
