'The Wahr inth^E\ver Wdes .


To day July IOth,I930 the verglad@s ar again under water,.
only the roads,canal bankE3 and thg farm machinery sticking out of
the watery waste. Buzzards on the telegraph poles,chickens on the
roofs of the sheds and rabbits in the middle of the road, a years
farmlabor and seed again lost,hope for a 'all or Winter crop fading.

This seems to be now the regular schedule in the "Sugar bowl
of the U.S. the grand agricultural reserve paradise of tropical pro-
ducts." With Lake Okeechobee I8~p.feet high and the Officials are
figuratively sitting quietly on -the lids -that hold the water in.

Four main canals were dug to let the water out. Mail boats
once run oh:them .,disasters were unknown, Ired C0 3lliot a regular
dam engineer, writing out tax receipts in Tallahassee was firmly and
permanently installed to throttle and supplies any sound enginooring
' advice. Ex-Gov. lart-in say7tFhis was insisted on by the large@ land
owng=s" what right had they to dictate?" Ex-TGov. Martin is the first
one to appear in print to condg~ the four main canas,i or he says in
ise drainage -ampfhlct on page TA." It never waE ths purpose of the
/Isham Randolph survey that S ma y canals would drain or control
(Lako Okeochobe&a." 00 course ha vne V thsan raising a fintyLJillign
dollaribond issue,OEstly -Lo raise taxgg. But it furnished the guide
to what to do with tht four main canals, that is let them alone sys-
tomatically,unlcas you could-eink a barge,burst up a c5TroTrT'6" ohoke
them some-how Martins three Great Eminent Engineers called at that J
time for a report advocated closing them entirely for drainage pur-
.poses. '.' '-----.-- *
George 3. Hills when bamboozling the Senate in the rivcas

mnt'.' n the four main ccncls I will not dwell bocaus- -hoy c.ro of I
littl-A~mportance in connection to navigation or flo control, A
pa- of Laka.tkeehobee only was shown t the Senators were the four
main canals visible? did Mr Hills explain the depth.and with of these
canals?"
Ralph Horton a local drainage apiiointee by Gov. Carlton
got hold of some drainage money to repair a leak in N. New River dur-
ing the winter flood in Hicleah Ili. 'This new appointee, although it
is doubtful if he could tell one end of a drainage ditch from the
other got the proper spirit of drainage officials at once and hiked
himself 26 miles up the II. ;ew River canal ,where the leak was not ,
and put in a dirj.anm across the canal and concreteQlok to be sure
of closing the caMal thoroughly, The concrete lock would not budge
either way, Fred C. "llipg.t was 'Pleased with the job and it may be
years before removal of this conel-lolistructions for opening the annual
there is never any.Money, but for obstructinc- them thero is alwOye
w.y.SOfti@ Got Z' a-lton'- h.e-.not rcrjlld Rilph Horton for se -

that neighborhood unless it tj to .mas] waterstopiagg in thg canal
perpetual. Any lock and dcm rill r@ducg the canal flow by one half
at it's best. But the daekoraze poraiEts,it has even reaG0pd the War
dopearint o
The 1929 Logislature ordered so'e local drainage men tor
help out difforont localittos,this did not suit at all. these might
open the canals, 3o that Logislaturo sprung a now animal to off-
set the local drainage squad Th' neh w Tvu nch wceria called flood con-
trolors,a superior article that could guide tho flood on ib.%he -next
County, but quiLt careful noL Lo 1'..t thb vat.r. out to th-. ocean.
Gov, Carlton appointed somo of thoes men for four years, I shudder to

- *-, If these words were not Davis' own view ,then what perverted
,-land-grabbers & murderers did he speak for? Is the stench of the
drowned small animals in the desert wastes of the Everglades their
idea of heaven? They do not raise one blade of grass or one ear of
corn,can-not even hunt where all animals are driven off except the
frogs and alligators. To the average citizen this systemati._h.lding
ino.- the wajar of the Everglades is a puzzle. But moaay is at the
bottom of it. First the railroads do not waut navigation,and favor
every obstruction in the four oancls ,perhaps all of them. The large
land-oaners who, pay: the least taxes want" to bug..iUe overfloradjand
ohegp. and another individual is one that toileth not but waxet.h ex-
treme-ly fat on subdrainag~edisjriote,for he can rob the people y law,
obtaining more taxes per acre than the State and County and doing
equally as lifTF- l as F{e latter

Letting t he water out of the Everglades would put -aogj to
many Subdrainage Disij.ct,. Even the plans adopted by the U S Engin-
eersdarazdtid ignear t.a hold in the water just the Ea .._..a 3 er. A -.J
\foot dam around Lake Okeech5Sbe-e, i'e suc&esggotion of Irod C,_.Elliott is
only to inviT>f'e grear disasters. Conorete.ALame have broken before and
a muck dam.of 31 feet ai' "TTfty-railes long will. nt ho d. This dam is
wholly unnecessary providing you drain those 1ad l an d .X the ]gke.
But all the energies of th'oise Tn i ge ario concentrated on nwrcking
the marvelous~..-aarehouse of Wintaerdelicaoies ,the exotic paradise of
the U.S. by the most brutaZLa.te ,,ith wholesale~ dwnings and finan-
cial jla.s-Is it not about time that the only source of real revenue in
Florida be oponodj.S by lottin& .urlus iato ~.t, I say real revenue
and contend that IO..Jr.ainloads ?1 Wfn~ ..vegetables are of more bone-
fit to Florida than a thousand tigtwad tor'rist

Will it be necessary to invoke th aid of Uncle Sam and have
a ocngressiona~ uiry in to the officanr.onduct of some riders and
abettji of felonies? Is it not the limit lf human understanding when
John Martinst Tantastio report of the Evergladae Engineering Board of
Review of MayJ. .27 ignoring all the good common .s9he-nse the Isham
Rand'lph survey advocates the Eto je~ijr if the FOUZ IC0Ikj CALS
(.and recommends digging ..I.tothey east cand wast canals at an esTimated
cost of 1 i on? There isnf9 ing the rr-T" with the 4 main canals

Office, Saturday 1O10 p.m.


My dear Mrs. McCullough:

This morning Mr. Warren blew into my room long enough
to aek me if I'd play the Good Samaritan to the extent of forward-
ing the enclosed letter from Mr. Foutz to Dr. Will, as it contains
some information which Dr. Will had requested, and Mr. Warren got
it through Mr. Fouts. (Got that straight?) And Mr. Warren, be-
ing drowned or thereabouts, in work, grasped at a straw (I being
said straw) to help him save a few minutes' time by forwarding
the information in a note to Dr. Will. And after Mr. Warren had
whizzed out again, it occurred to me that I didn't know where to
mail it as I don't know whether Dr. Will is at Fort Lauderdale or
Belle Glade now, and so I decided the best way to do would be to
send it along to you to forward, and while I was about it, thought
I might as well enclose a couple of letters from Mrs. Holden which
might be of interest to you both.

The weather is just about as fiendish now as when I
wrote you a few days ago, and added to other troubles, there is
a Woman's Beneficent Society picnic at Iains toint this afternoon
(mentioned' in my letter to you) to which I am going as soon as
this is finished, although I'd rather go home and exchange my present
habiliments for a kimono and an electric fan. Mr. Warren asked me to
present his excuses as he will have to work at the office this after-
noon and probably tomorrow also.

The consolidation of the offices is going on apace our
new stationery arrived this morning (after I had come down early and
X'd out the "Department of the Interior" on a bushel or so of our old
letterheads in order to sasetime; that's the way my bright ideas are
apt to turn outi) and thereArumors that-there'll be an hour added to
our work day and that stenographers face a possible cut in salary. A
very inspiring prospect, taken altogether.

However, one little piece of good luck came my way, much
to my surprise yesterday, when I found a letter from The bomad maga-
zine to which I had sent my account of my California trip taken in
1924, saying they had accepted it and would send me two copies of the
July number and a chegk in a few days. I believe I'll see if I can
work off some of that Florida writeup on them and see what happens.

Good bye again. Consider this as a "P.S." to my last
letter, which I hope reached you all right.

Lovingly yours,




N.

VOTE "YES"

ON THE

Broward Drainage District Referendum
--'-* ---- *- *---~- ~ aI '
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 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.
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 froin 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 "YE S" on
this referendum.
Some have said, "\'e 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.

Oleveland,0., Aug. 8,1930
Mr. Thomas E. Will,
Belle Glade, Florida,

Dear Sir:
I would thank you to advise me if your name on the attached state-
ment of the"Defense Association of the Owners of Everglades Lands,,
etc,, is authorized by you and briefly if you consider them competent
and trustworthy in the cause they represent,

I take it that you are the Thomas E. Will I had the pleasure of
meeting in Florida when the land auction took place, when both you and I
were more or less interested in the sales end of the proposition,

The statement that the land down there is still under water is some-
what surprising in view of the fact that the entire country from at least
Georgia up and as far East and West as you like, has been suffering with
unprecedented drought,

I see that the Federal Rivers and Harbors bill included some millions
for the cross-State Florida canal so much talked of for these many years.
That is interesting, but visions of the fruition of this project in Flori-
day have long since lost their glamour with me. You must be possessed
of profound patience and the persistence of a bulldogif I have not mistak-
en your identity. Good luck to,you, and may you live to be able to say,
"I told you so."

CONTRACT ACCOUNT





Mr. Thomas E. Will,
209 S. 7. 6th Avenue,
Ft. Lauderdale, Florida

Dear Sir:

Your failure to at least reply to our many past
communications, concerning your contract account,
leads us to believe that you are no longer inter-
ested in making payment of the balance due on
your contract account, covering purchase of various
',, PALM BEACH COUNTY, FLORII., tax certificates.

The last payment which you made was on the 30th day
of 1.arch, 1930, in the sum of $15.00. Your account,
up to this writing, has proven very unsatisfactory, -
and unless your co-operation is given in this mat-
ter from now on, we shall have no alternative, but
to cancel your contract account.

Hoping that you will give this matter your immediate
attention, we remain

Your i truly,
W. C COMPANY

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.
Thar means her Everglades must be farmed. Then, as in Dade County, factories vill 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.
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. Thomas E. Will
Belle Glade, Fla.


Dear Sir:

Your letter with enclosed oopy of letter
to Gov. Oarlton, we should get results if we continue to have faith
/ and courage and work as hard as you have worked these many years.
I received $5.00 from Mr. Oilers and credited
thA amount to the"Defense Fund" and wrote him to that effect,however
thb-~bill should be paid as we have used the ciroulers. Please let me
:. tj know the amount of this bill. :
i' We must keep the expenses as low as possible i
if we expect to start"Suit" I can easily mimeograph any circular for you.
I as I have gotten some experience. i
Nearly all letters addressed from Bryant ,"
and Greenwood book were returned to me, I was so discouraged,but after
Getting addresses from the Palm Bqach County records,we are getting better
results. The books of the Defense Fund are open to you at any time.After
mailing out some hundred letters ,and waiting for reply to same I 'ree vaie
*:* only a hand full of answeres,I then wrote enclosed circular letter asking
S for $I.00 ,and received one dollar or more ,sometimes as much as ask
S for in first circular. Please return letter as I file all letters read.
Mr. Andrae and sef will do any thing we can
II |to help you in this work.

Very,truly,

I am now back from my swing through the South and East and
was rather a fruitful trip throughout, I delivered your article to the sanctum

at Okeochobee City at noon and was in Washington D C Friday night*

Spent an hour in the weather bureau getting the scientific data on the
1920 tornado,an hour in the map dept.,thirty minutes in the chief engineer's
of the army office and the balance of the time during office hours at head quarters
of river and harbors,coast surveyjarmy abd navy,and interior and picked up a let
of interesting information and data. Wish you had been with me,

You would be surprised to learn how much the Federal departments know
about Florida and the many internal quarrells they have throughout the State
and they are not at all pleased at the many cat and dog fights going on there,
we will have to GET TOGETHER if we get the aid we expect of them.

I am glad I was able to meet you for I knew by your writings that you
are thoroughly posted on Everglade affairs and also surprised to find an old
college professor down in the Ever Glades fighting for a few feet of Gods green
fotatool. I was somewhat amazed at the extensive records you have accumulated
and compiled and wish I access to them as I an going to join the fight for the
upper glades,as I have four ten acre tracts in addition to the ten acres near
Clewiston that I want to get under cultivation soon if possible,

The State and counties have not given us a square deal as tin roads and
drainage,for we have neither after all the taxes we have paid in eighteen years
Sand taxation without benefit is worse than taxation without representation and
it seems we have neither,and the question is How long Oh Lord,How long.

Up to four years ago Ilike you,was an idealist and believer in fighting
for the right without compromise,but my many contacts with labor organizations
and politicians has led me to the use of strategy and diplomacy as the only way
to win o i in this day of organizations and combines.

I was agreeably surprised to find Florida such a nice place to live in
the Summer monthe,for I slept better and felt better than in any place en my i :.
I was entirely disgusted with Washington as could not stand the heat there aal

I expect to orgn;ze a a realty..,ompany in the near future to get.people
with a small income to make Florida their all. year round hamneand I can do that
with a clear conscience as us believe it is the best place in the U S to live.
Would like very much to have you in with.us from the start as only want men
who will work for the future of Fla. Every man we get there will lessen our

Would like to hear from you even if nothing new going en.
Youths 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 'OWN.
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 c6st 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.
VOTE "YES." And then help the Evergladers get their own kind of a Board.

Dr. Thos. E. Will,
Belle Glade, Fla.

Dear Doctor Will:-

Replying to your letter of 12th re Dam in
North New River canal has been delayed until full plans in
this could be worked out and confirmed.

Before receipt of your letter I had called
meeting in Ft. Lauderdale with hope of getting something done,
and tentative plans for completing the lock and removing the
Dam are under way, although at this time I am n:t sure
they will go through, hope to have the final answer for you
in next day or two.

Will of course do the best for you we can.

Yours very truly,

Dear Sir:


Mr. Andrae received your letter,always glad
to hear about the meetings and interest taken in our efforts to get
the water out of the Everglades.
Any thing you want prpnted can be gotten
out in a few hours time severald thousand a day. The-aMiami Herald
Aug.20-tL930 page 6 col.3 shows they are changing their minds
about the way the"Drainage" has been handled. Keep working ,and
remember though you do not hear from us we are on theob every
minute. We are receiving many letters,which keep us busy.




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 bondss.
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.
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
but from their own properties. kept from voting, and taxed without representation?
SDo 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 Evergladeri 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.
VOTE "YES." And then help the Evergladers get their own kind of a Board.

Dear Doctor Will:-

Following my letter of a few days ago re situ-
*tion in !iorth Ne River Canal.

You have, of course, seen where- some unjusti-
fied person or persons have blown out the Dam, and the
completions of the Locks at that point are therefore
delayed, as finishing the job without a Dam is almost
impossible.

SWill you be good enough to let lie know to what
.,j /... _lextene the water in the Okelanta section w.,as lowered by
t / the opening of this dam, and how much per day the water
,' -is going down now?

Is the water running out of the Lake into the
r-orth IJo.' ivor canal,and to what extent? If not, why?

o., In talking to 1,ir. Andrae a few days aro he told
S 'mne quite positively that the people in the Okelanta section
,did n,)t want a Lock in the Ikorth lieo., hive-r canal. Can this
1 bo possible?

"o will continue to work on this proposition until
something constructive is done, but I think]: : u will agro.
that blowing" out dams on the ove of constructive improvements
only coiplicatos and delays the xjork.

With very kind personal regards.

Dear Professor Will:


This is to acknowledge receipt of your

letter of August 25rd addressed to Mr Selby and to tell you that

Mr Selby is at present away on vacation and is not expected back

until the latter part of next month.


Yours very truly,



Secretary to Howard W Selby

SDr.T.E.Will
Belle Glade
Florida
My Dear Dr.:-
I believe that the meeting last night at Belle Glade
showed very clearly that we still have the Florida East Coast R.R. to
deal with and I think that you will agree with me that their agent is
H.HE.Eart.As a mattervof fact I believe H.H.is one of the meanest hold backs
that we have to contend with in the development of the Everglades Country.
Not because he is smart,for he is HO!T,but because he has spent so many
years about the Lake,that he knows the conditions,tricky and unscrupulous
in my judgement,he can lend himself to any scheme that will turn a dollar.
Since you are devoting your life to the benefit of the Lake
Country,I urge that you WATCH HART.
This little note of personal opinion I send for your r ading
only.I believe,however that you could see that Harts was backed last night
by a considerable bunch of railroad men,who under almost any other
circumstances would noj have been at the meeting.

Sincerely yours

VOTE "YES"

ON THE

Broward Drainage District Referendim


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 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 mnill 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. i .*
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-
Sgladers want these men removed, let the Governor remove them." That's POPULAR GOVERN-
MENT, and it's the solution of this problem.
SVOTE "YES." And then'help the Evergladers get their own kind of a Board.
