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

Dear Sir:
z
W I have your letter of September 27th and thank you
very much for the information which. it contained. d We will
follow up the tip you gave us about writing to I'.r. Kirtland
.S at St. Auujstine. I am of the opinion, however, that the
2 F. E. 0, will not be very strongly inclined to aid our endeavor
" 'for making the North New River Canal a waterway again.

Some of our data is already in hand and I believe we
0 can answer several of the questions* Will it be possible for you
iii to have. in Lauderdale by the end of this week a list of all the
W boats now operating around the Lake. If not all of them, those
that are around Belle Glade, This should include barges and
other commercial floating plant as well. If you can supplement
< this list of boats with a list of wharves and docks in your
vicinity, i.e. at Belle Glade, and in the North New River Canal
it will enable us to complete another part of this report.

You have a list of the questions asked and you will
note that the names of boats should carry certain data with each
boat, i.e. owners name, etc., and the same holds good for a
description of the wharves and docks.

We realize that it is asking a whole lot of you but
there is only one way to complete this report and that is to get
all the facts.

is r erendum ought to carry, BIG. It's the ONE THING that will help the Back Country.
R e ..Bac Country will then-heltAhe town. '

SLauderdale needs the Glades worse than the Glades need Laudjsdale Lauderdale can't live
on tourists. SHE MUST PRODUCE.
That nrAns her verglades must be farmed. Then, as in Dade County, factories will follow.
These will bring aay-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
S. $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.
SDo 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?
i-* .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 PSPULAR GOVERN-
MENT, and it's the solution of this problem.
SVOTE "YES." And then help the Evergladers get their own kind of a Board.

TO THOSE RECEIVING QUESTIONNAIRE FROM COL. L. V. FRAZIER:



r Under date of September 3rd, Cole L. V. Frasier, U. S.
District Engineer of Jacksonville, mailed questionnaires to some forty
z addresses, requesting the several reactions on the proposed Federal im-
s provement of the New River and the North New River Canal, with the view
to making that artery a unit of a crose-siate waterway.

An item in the Rivers and Harbors Bill, enacted by the second
session of the 71st Congress, reading as follows, authorizes this survey
by the District Engineer: "Inland waterway from PortEverglades at Bay
Mabel, Florida, via Clewiston, to the headwaters of the Caloosahatchee
River in Lake Hicpochee, by way of the New River, the North New River
Canal, and Lakeg0keechobee, with a view to its improvement by the Federal
Government for the purposes of navigation together with its incidental
effect on flood_.ontrol".

It is unnecessary for us to describe the benefits which will
accrue to those communities on the eastern and western extremities of
s the proposed waterway and those communities in the vicinity .of the
terminals. However, these beneficient results will scarcely exceed those
'obtaining in or near the communities immediately adjacent to the water-
way along its entire course,

Our purpose in thus contacting you is to furnish the informa-
tion that this community thru its Chamber of Commerce is making an
exhaustive study of the proposed project, with the intention of making
a comprehensive report to the District Engineer. Our Traffic
Counselor is compiling present, proposed and comparative costs, our
engineer is preparing data pertaining to navigation and flood control
and we are preparing information regardingjonnagV .

It should be borne in mind that the government is interested
in nothing but facts and recommendations based upon basic conditions
as revealed from earnest survey of the project in its wide scope, as
related to South Florida and the individual communities concerned.

It is hoped that you will render a forceful and enthusiastic
rop~at the pro=pr time. The District Enginser-has granted a
g y time extDaion, to Novembal.rd. In th meantime we will
appreciate the opportunity of handing you a summary of our data to
assist in assuring everyone concerned of a uniform, constructive
r ~ze mendation to the Government. Upon reguest we will immediately
answer your inquiry regarding the information now in process of com-
pilation here-

We will welcome a line from you in this regard.

Very truly yours,

Dr. Thoa. EB Will,
SBelle Glade, Florida.

Dear Dr.:
z
I have your letter giving the information on boats
around Belle Glade, also facts about the wharves and docks,

\'e have b-.ea endeavoring to secure a reliable es-cimaTe
of the t rnnaJe hhandled out of the Lakearea by the raijLroads
during the past year, We have in mind, particularly, the tonnage
which might be di=aLted to water. We' followed thru your idea of
approaching the F, E. C. Railroad thr. St. Augustine, but received
a rather curt-.reply that their records were not kept in such a
way that this information could be given out. I d. not know just
how we are going to accurilate this data unless it if obtained
Sdi.,ct from the shigpers,

Wh< en you are making your rounds of some of the brokers
and larg.i.shippers in your vicinity, can you not collect some
facts as to the amount of freight actually- dn and movad
out during the past year,

Our data at this end of the line is slowly accumulat-
ing and we hope to start getting it in more definite form within
a short tie.

Yours very truly,

FORT LAUDERD.ALE CHUaEL.JR CF C0Oi RCE,

Your favor of October 9th is very interesting
to the writer as we feel that the water from the Kissim-
mee Valley watershed should be brought the shortest route
th the A.tlantic, which would be through a large canal
with locks running i'-imi the Kissimmee River north of LTi:e
Okeechobee into the Indian River opposite the rco't Pierce
Inlet.

,e writer has spent considerable time on this
work and is organizing the association to put this through.
( e feel that the present a: tem of draiining the "vei -lades
will not be satisfactory, and are afraid that we u-y again
have a disaster such as that of 1928.

,e have no literature on this letterr but will
senu. you some as soon as it is issued.

Very truly yours,

FLOOD CONTROL

A Suggestion Made To Fort Pierce

Chamber of Commerce by

H. Lionel Meredith


Drainage and Okeechobee Flood control are not new prob-
lems to this section,


The time-worn, stereotyped plan of providing drainage
canals has not only proven its ineffectiveness to relieve
flood conditions in the Lake Okeechobee district but has
become an added menace to life and property along the various
canals from the Lake south to the Palm Beach, Fort Lauder-
dale and Miami districts, and has entailed incalculable crop
and material loss from over flow of both the lake and the
canals.


The proposal is now made to resort to another well known
expedient--that of diking; raising the shores of the lake a-
bove its natural height. This expedient is costly and aS -

faisasissip ; Rier ar;a the z .jti



The above mentioned methods of control are what may be
called "Curativ4Lej sures"-taking care of abnormal condi-
tions of flood which arise and have arisen season after sea-
son.


By a study of the map of the Lake Okeechobee section,
which is seasonally flooded, it will be found that water is
naturally carried into the Lake by the Kissimwme River and
its tributaries, and from Lake,4takpoga through the Indian
Prairie-panal. In order to get rid of this w.ter Lake Okee-
chobee has been tapped by the St. Lucie Canal, cutlet at
Stuart; the West Palm Beach CanalT outlet at West Palm Beach;
the Hillsborough Canal, outlet at Deerfield; the North I~ew
River Cai'-. outlet at Fort Lauderdale; and the Miami Canal,
outlet at Miami.


!^















Page II.




These canals vary from 30 miles to 80 miles in length,
coarsing through a terrain at but a few feet above sea
level and whose water table is, at its deepest, but a few
feet below the s:.-lface sought to be drained. In addition
to these canals, there is to the West, a canal leading into
Sthe Caloosahatchee River through Lake Hicpochee. During
the present flood conditions the St. Lucie Canal, to the
East, and the Caloosahatchee outlets were the only canals
which actually carried water out of Lake Okeechobee, while
those to the south, namely, Kst Palm Beach Canal, Hills-
borough Canal, North New River C..-i'nl, and the Miami Canal
actually .:'i "- .- .tc i;.j ti.:.. '1hI:!, due to the height ned
Swaterjtabl in the :*giu ooutl of the lake and the flooded
condition of that land on account of excessive rains.
\These conditions are no'i nusul, they are seasonable and
recurring.


The method of controlling the recurring flood condi-
tions of the Lake Okeechobee District and the flooded
territory to the south and west which, we are proposing is
7 a "FPnre-ntive Hiea:,'e"'-a means of preventing conditions
from arising which cause flood conditions in the Lake
regions.


This method is to dispoc.ne of the floo,_water of the
Kissimmee water shed and tihe water of Lake Istakpoga, and
Snot l,.. ,L-m to dr. cL, L h*b. fr. c thh e er
7 b n Ic.l's. 'fl,.y This c. Le ..L.-n- l' cutti;r" sa canal
::'l f-: :de by 8' feet deep from the point where Istak-
pc. Creek flows into L.re Istakpcga duo East thro.-!_, the O ft;
prairie through E]..i,g. .r to Fort-Pierce and the ocean; a
distance of approximately 435.ies, taking care of the N. '4 i,
KissimmeeBiver through conTT~ L gates.

Dear r. Will:

I have your letter of yesterday. Under separate cover

we are sending you some copy paper and correspondence envelopes; and

we shall be glad to receive reports of your meetings, to be published in

the Sunday Post, provided that the reports contain only news matter and

Dr. Thomas E. '.*ill,
Belle Glade,
Florida.

Dear Doctor:-

I have been absent from the city for the
past month and on my return find your letter of the
9th instant with regard to the proposed stub road
from South Bay to Okeelanta. On yesterday I took
this matter up with iIr. Himes, Chairman of the Board
of County Commissioners. He says the unfortunate
delay has been because of lack of finances in that
particular fund, due to the failure of tax payments
but that they are still hopeful soon of being able
to do something And the matter has not been forgotten.
SYou probably know that onlygj.. of the lands in the
Everglad.es is on the taxbooks and a very large
portion of property outside of the district is in
like delinquent shape. In the meantime, we are
all necessarily subjected to great inconvenience.
I am sorry that I cannot give you a more encouraging
report. Sometimes I feel despondent myself and
wonder whether, after all these years, the thing is
going to result in a complete flop.

Hoping that a better order of things is
in the near future and with best regards always,
I am

Very truly yours,

GFB. G

Lauderdale needs the Glades worse than the Glades need Lauderdale. Lauderdale can't live

These will bring pay-rolls, and a YEAR-ROUND TOWN.

Do you know how the Everglades have been carrying the Coast?

Do you know that, for 15 years, most of the 20,000 old Everglades buyers have been barred

Dear Dr. Jilll:

We have just cormplEted our northh New River report and
would like very much to let you see it at this time, but cannot
because of the fact that it must be in Jacksonville ::o:,da_ morning.
It is a 75-page book covering all phases of the subject.

'/e have suggested a six foot navigable depth thruout
the canal,predicated on a fourteen-foot elevation of the Lake,
a widening to 80-feet thruout aid the building of an intermediate
lock at approximately the midway point.

There is nothing in the report or su,.ested improve-
< ments which would conflict with any state, national or sectional
Programs, either for navigation, irrigation or flood.gontrol.

Oar final conclusion, based on actualtonnage originating
in the immediate tributary ar~a and that tonnage destined points
in the immediate area is that on a basis of last_4 war's plaLted
acreages and production there wculd be a saving of l195 400.00,
which is interstate 6Pa on better than -hre,. id one---uar- r
Million Dollars. By basing our computation on production and
c..nsuptio~ inl th- general l tributary area the estimated sayvin-s
figure is uc !: la'r:er. .6e have att Ept.d to shov national b:ne-
fits and believe we have been successful.

Here is what we would like for you to do. In order
to str t-then thi s report and at the same time eliminate the
necessity of detailed replies to the questicnaiie boy the various
co.u:'aiii-,r 'please fi'ave"f ur 'Ywn Cocifl r CI Commission,

taining to the preliminary examination of a waterway from Port

VOTE "YI

ON THE


Broward Drainage District Referendumn-


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 ji:ay-rolls, and a YEAR-ROUND TOWN.

But the Everglades must have reclamation funds. Hence the Brov:ard 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
$7,1000 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 $7,00.000 r $8i01.,010. most of which has
helped build the Coast. rather than the Evergiades?

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, "W\Vho will follow them?" I answer, "Let the Everglades ov'ners name their own
board, by petition: and then let us all petition the Go.vrnor 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.

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 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 hell 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 Thomas E. Will
Belle Glade Fla.,

Dear Sir;

I am returning herewith the three photographs of
boats on the North iew River Canal. They certainly show
beyond a shadow of a doubt that there was certainly plenty
of navigation on the Canal at one time.

I regret to say that we had to use what photographs
we could get from Air. -elcy and get the report in to Jackson-
ville as soon as possible. We received your photographs
this morning but had to mail our reports in to Jacksonville
last Saturday to have them in on time.

I would suggest that you hold these photographs
as we may be able to use them later on. I know that they
are very rare and I do$ not want to risk loosing them or
having someone pick them up, consequently I am returning
them immediately.

I think you have received a letter fr6m Mr. Eller
asking that you supply a letter-from your section concuring
in the sentiments which have been worked into this report.
We find that very few answers were returned to this question
and no doubt our report can serve as theirs as well if they
will send a covering letter to this effect.


Yours very truly,



S. E. Lawrence, Engineer.

Broward Drainage District Referendum


This referendum ought to carry. BIG. It's the ONE THING that will help the Bacb" Country.
And the Back Country will then hel. 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
selloits 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.

Dear Dr. Will:-

Sorry I missed you in the office on Saturday.

Beg to advise I am taking some steps in the

matter of getting information on the Shark River outlet from

the .iami Canal, as discussed with you here some days age.

Will advise you later what we get on this.

Very kind regards.

November 14, 1950


Mr. Thos. E. Will
Belle Glade, Florida

Dear Mr. Will:

In reply to your letter of November 10, you have probably
received report on the State Highway Board Meeting at Miami Wednesday
when it passed a resolution to have a survey made for a road from
the Lake to Southeast Florida, designating the survey to be for
road 26 and 26A.

At this meeting the Miami Chamber of Commerce presented
to the Board a resolution urging the completion of a road from the
Lake section to Southeast Florida over the most economic feasible
route to serve the interests of the most people. We hope the result
of this survey will show conclusively the practicability of building
this road down the banks of the North New River canal; then a cut-off
road directly into Miami.

It seems to me that the only thing we can do at the present
Time is to await the outcome of this survey and as far as possible
S work with the road engineers.


Thanking you for the clippings and your interest in this


Yours very truly,



H. I. Mossbarger

VOTE "Y.


ON THE,


Broward Drainage District


Referendum



;

i- -.. :


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. Laud erdale 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, ahd a YEAR-ROUND 'TOWN.

But the Everglades must have reclamation funds. Hence the Broward Drainage District mu'st
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 $8,00(i 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 represen-tation?

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 Eve'rgladers and yourself at the same time, VOTE "Y E S" on
this referqtdum.

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 wanf Ihese qien removed, let the Governor 'remove them." That's POPULAR GOC'ERN-
SMENT, and it's the solution, of this problem. .

VOTE "YES." And-th.en help the Evergladers get their own kind of -a Board.

S" THOMAS E. WILL,
209 S. W. Sixth Ave., City.
