Dear Sir: ,

Referring to your letter of January 2, 1931, relative to fires within
the Everglades Drainage District, the law providing for a Fire Board
and Fire Wardens and Fire tax for the Everglades Drainage District
was repealed by the legislature in 1920.

The Everglades Drainage District law of 1929 gave the Board of Oomm-
issioners the power to police the District for the purpose of pre- '
venting damage by fi:e or oFTnerwis e,

In 1930 the action of the Board was as follows:

Meeting of January 2, 1930.
Moved by Mr. Miayo, seconded by Mr. Horton -- That in the matter of
fire prevention and control the Executive Secretary be and is hereby
authorized to cause the bu.riLg of grass and growth on the muck areas
in each commissioners District upon the request and under the advice
and supervision of the commissioner of the District, and empowering
such commissioner to employ such help as he may require, and

Upon the outUreak of fire, the commissioner of the District is instr-
ucted to communicate with the Executive Secretary who in turn shall
authorize said coGmissioner to employ such assistance as shall be
deemed oy such coirijissioner to be advisable and necessary and that the
expense of such help shall be borne by the Evergla'es Drainage District."

Meeting March 6, 1930.
Mr. Davis amerided a motion as follows: That the matter of ixzE air
fire_patrol and all other matters pertaining to fire control, be left
to the local miem:..ers to handle at their own discretion. Amendment
accepted and motion adopted.

Meeting April 21, 1930.
Mr. Copeland moveL that all Iir2 jork be discontinued as of May 1.
Seco nded by Mr. Davis and addofd by vote. "

Meeting November 25, 1930. aLr
Mr. Knott moved that Dr. "air and Mr. Simmons be authorized to inves-v-
tigate the necessity of protectivefires in the Lake_area and to take
such action in the premises as they deemed advisable. Seconded and
carried.

You will note from this record that the intention of the Board has
been for the 1acalcommissioners to handle the fire situation in
their respective territories.

The present law provides the following penalty for the setting of
fires:

U That it shall be unlawful for any person or persons, firm or
corporation, to set fire or cause the same to be set or started
upon lands within t1ieEverglades D ainage District, except as in
this act.otherwise provided. The clearing of lands by fires, the
setting of field fires, forest fires, prairie fires, the encouraging
of new pasture by firing, and all other fires, including the smoking
out or driving of g0ie by fire, are hereby prohibited, except as
herein otherwise specifically provided."

Any person shall upon conviction be pushed by imprisonlpent in the
State Prison for a period not exceeding oneyear, or by fine not
exceeding Five thousand Dollars, or by boQ fine and imprisonment
at the discretion of the Oourt. "

Pergiits to set fires for the purposes of clearing mlay be secured from
the Board through the office of the ExecutiveSecr-tary who is emn-
powered by the Board to issue such permits, when, as, and if they
application for such permit has been apDpQved by the local commissioner
in the area in which the permit is requested.



Very truly yours,


I

Executvie Secretary,
Everglades DOainaze District.

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."

S" 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.

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 that, 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 v'erglades 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, "\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.

\'OTE "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 willthcn 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.
I- But it must ftirt have more people and more values in it. This the bond-buyers insist on.
This won't cost Lauderdale one cent. It will cost Bro\vard County one little mill on the dollar, about
$7,000 or $8,000 per year.
But the new taxes and pew 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?

Dr. Thomas E. Will,
Belle Glade,
Florida

Dear Doctor:-

Your letter of the l,9th ultimo"would
have been answered earlier but I have been absent
from the office a good part of the time. A lot
of what you say is absolutely true but I do not
believe that the people of the County seat are in-
different to the difficulties in the Glades. The
trouble is that there are difficulties everywhere
and under the present order of things, everyone
having his owntroubles, there is not as much co-
operation as their should be. Recently a number
of men,headed by M. R. Kays and Howard Selby, have
tried to organize the farmers of the County, look-
ing toward the relief of iust SULh sitt. inn. as
yo. u -. ax -ta. It might be well for you to talk
With Mr. Kays and see if he has any suggestion.

I am glad to know that some relief
has been given toward repairing the road from
South Bay to Okeelanta. I tninjt commissioner
Himes has had something to do with that; he said
when I talked with him the last time that as soon
as there were any funds available the road would
be repaired.

The situation at the County seat at
this time, as well as elsewhere in Florida and in
fact throughout the whole country, is most unsatis-
factory and everyone believes that his troubles are
greater than the others. Sometimes I feel that
/the working out of our problems is so far away that
it is not worth while to fret and worry oneself.

Belle Glade, Florida



My dear Dr. Will:



I have your favor of January 31st, which I
have read with much interest. I should not have to tell
you that I have alw~gs been in fPay-r of Everglades Drain-
age District being governed 1".ally. I believe it was a
mistake in the beginning to~put the Governor and other high
State officers on the Board. That plan has led to much
confusion and a complete misconception of the nature of the
district. It is now, and has always been, simpiF"a local
A improvementdistrict. It should be governed as other~Iocal
, .5 improvement districts properly organized are govered.

Also, I am in favor of what you call "honest
taxation." That simply means that the taxas should be laeied,
as nearly as it is humanlzypossible, upon the basis of befqiUts.

I am also in favor of reclamation by units. In
my judgment that is the only practical method for carrying on
the reclamation work in the future.


I appreciate the fact that the so-called sub-drainage
districtjresents a very serious problem. So far as the Boa-a
of Commissioners of Everglades Jrainage District is concerned,
it is powerless to deal with that problem. Sub-districts have
been created by special Act of the Legiplature and they have
their own taxing scheme and their own officers. These districts
are neither under the control nor influence of the Everglades
Board. It is impossible to put them under the control or direction/
of that Board.

I believe that with the help of the landbners and
the cooperation of the bondhoa~ers we are going to be able to
work out the Everglades Drainage District and put it on a sound

basis. The landowners themselves will have to exert their in-
fluence to bring"abut such reforms as may be needed with respect
t to the sub-districts.

Generally speaking, my idea is to bring about a
system of taxation, as nearly as possible upon a benefit baiis,
S sufficient to take care of the outstanding debts of Everglades
Drainage,.Jlstrict upon a refunded and extendedbasis. The law
also must provide for an adequate and complete system.f.. n-cla-
mation by uW.ts and with the levspg of the cost of such recla-
mation upon the lands benefited thereby.

There is no disagreement between the views of the
landowners and my..liews. I am satisfied that at the present
time the Board is quite willing to cooperate with the lan4.gners
in effectuaT ng such reforms as may be necessary.



e tuly yours

...st York, Ill. ,

Dear Sir:

Re Tract 21, Sec. 2-51-39

Relying to your inquiry of the 3rd, the map herewith is
the latest we have. We believe you must have received one of these maps
last year when they were first printed, but are ,:ndj .g it anyhow.

O.si., to lack pf.finds, we have been able to exthad the
work but very titlee the past year. Quite a little work was done on
the Flor-ingo S-roves project, which is a 50Qacre orange grove being
started within the draineg4.rea of the District, and after the last
September storm, we had to do quite .a bit of repairwork to our das
and ditches. We are glad to report, however, that owing to these
dams ii-id ditches a million ~'l larI 'o rth of development was saved
from destruction.

The real reap AXes are so hih is that so maLy .*ple
Sdo not ray them. If only 50% of the people pAytaxes, it raises the
States of the other ~. just that much. If the people whose land is
located _,.put, that is, outside of the present drained area, would
pay taxes promptly, not only would they come doulnL', but we would have money
to carry on the drainageL':rk raidly. If you can figure out a cure for this,
we shall be glad to hear from you. We might add, that the best minds
in the State, from the Gorvernor down, are working an planning to get the
taxes down, and it is more than likely that the peak has been reached.
'e hope so. In the meantime, there is some.grospect that the GQgirmment
will taka..ver the drsiuJr ,work, and if this should happen it will
speed matters up considerably.

If we can serve you at any time, please let us hear from you.

Respectfully,


Ei-/i Secretary. rf

You have a mistaken idea concerning the valuation on
your property. We have the tract assessed for ;.40,00-
or four $4.00 per acre-the special drainages rake the
ta-:es high-you only pay a little over four dollar
State & County tax- the rest is special assessments-
this office has nothing to do with the Drainage
assessments,

Dr. Will,
Belle Glade, Florida.

Dear Sir:

We are asking your cooperation to get a fair acreage
of corn planted around the lake this month.

Last year we erected, here, an up to date Elevator
that will clean the corn and prepare it for the worlds
market. Ve have succeeded in getting a lowered freight
rate to the Eastern markets but we are very much afraid
that the farmers are not planning on corn. I say this
because the Seed Houses in the territory are not selling
very much seed corn.

Our principals are sold on the idea that these lands
can raise corn and over two hundred acres have been
planted on their lands this season. Corn is a staple
product that can be grown in the summer season and we
ask that you assist us in this problem.

l.. --- Thanking you in advance, we are

WILLIAM B. SLEETH, Agriculturist Florida State Chamber of Commerce
GEORGE W. WALTERS, Attorney Vero Beach Chamber of Commerce











We are in the business of investigating and appraising
ilorida property. This is our sole business. We cover the
whole state with our service and are undoubtedly the largest
and best-known firm of independent real-estate appraisers in
the state.

During the week beginning >d--- 3 one of our
appraisers will be in Broward County appraising several parcels
of property in that county.

While on this trip, our charge for appraisals will be much
less than usual, owing to saving in traveling expenses.

Our appraisal would be based on a personal visit and careful
examination of your property by an expert appraiser. Our report
would be in the form of a neatly bound two-page typewritten docu-
ment accurately and completely describing your property. Our
valuation would give our opinion both as to the intrinsic value
of your property and its present market value with a discussion
as to its future possibilities. It would include a photograph of
the property and a map. Our appraisal would be certified before
a notary public.

While on this trip, our charge for a complete Certified
Descriptive Appraisal on any one vacant lot, or tao adjoining
lots, will be only /0 payable ten days from receipt of our
report. This will also be our charge for any unimproved acreage
tract of not over 40 acres. Fees for appraisals on buildings or
other improved property will be quoted on request.

The above-mentioned fee will be our total charge, including
traveling expenses, photograph, map and all incidentals.

If you wish to take advantage of this reduced price, please
fill in and return the enclosed order form before the above date.


Yours very truly,

Mr. Thomas E. Will,

Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

My dear Mr. Will:-

I will greatly appreciate it if

you will kindly send me remittance for $12,00, which

is the balance due me on the typewriter I sold you for

$15,00 several years ago. This matter has been running

a long time now and I feel sure you will concede that

I have been very patient.

I read your articles in the Saturday

edition of the Fort Lauderdale Daily News and it looks

to me like you still have a long fight ahead in the

Everglades matter, but you may get action some day.

Thanking you in advance for your

prompt attention to the above request, I remain,

Yours very truly,


/ Raymond I. McNeill.

Tarch 26, 1931.


Mr. Thomas R. Will,
Fort T Lauderdale, Fla.

Dear Mr. Will:

About 21 ydars ago when you were selliniv Royal Glades
acrdage from an office here on G between 3th and 9th 3ts., 1
became enthusiastic enough to invest' 1200.00 in two tracts in S
23 T 51 R 40. 1 still believe that the land is qood but am
+ettin pretty tired of taxes and no drainage or accessibility to
this land.

As a reader of the Daily news of Fort La'derd lse once a
week 1 have been observi'1 your articles lately. If I understand
the', correctly you 'appear to be reconoending that we quit paying
taxes on these tracts. That would seem to mean n3:alties rener-
ally connected with no+n payment thereof.

I admit that I have made a bad_ avest-ent, but my present
problem is not to cry about that. What 1 am really concerned about
and for which 1 now seek your real advice is: Does the future
prospectX for this acreage justify' e it sendin- any ,noretaxes
after bad moneyuv 1 would like your real opinion even though
it means a total loss of original investment. It will be better
to save my taxes each year than to keep paying on year after year
indefinitely it seems to me. I would viveA.e of tihse 10 acre
tracts to some one to ice 3p taxes paid on the other for a while if
1 could. 1 am holdi- up ay'en 1930 taxes --endinidecis ion
after hearing from youif you will be so kind.

Also own Lot 4 "Rlock 12, ist Addition to Lauderdale.
Am payiIT taxes on this with uope of its beinT of some'iilue
in next few years. Do you think that a -ood idea?

Have not seen your old partner ir. Powen or Mr. Jackson
for some time. Got a raw deal from latter fewv, rs a,:o on ci
small loan.which shows what he is as far as 1 m. concerned.
Haven't heard from Mrs. icCu, louluh for son-e time. Am afraid she
bit off too much land when 1 did considering wh t has not 'hapr.eed
in a draila .e way since.

Thanking you in advance for your reply, I am,

Sincerely,


/ T. j. raldo

Dr. Thos E. TWill,
Ft Lauderdale, Fla.

Dear Dr. Will:

I note in your paper, which we receive every Ionday
that you are interesting your self in our case, and that
we are expected to help out with members, .dues, so please
let me knowbhe amount Tmy dues.

I have paid gyry tax for twenty years to the state and county,
and the drainagetaxes also, and my City takes, however both state
and county, and city officials, are badly mixed even now, and I
have furnished them the number and dates and names of parties tia.t
signed the receipts.

Then the tax agent notifies me on postal that my taxes are delipnent
in big red 3^Iers, and the counttjax collector says it is up to the
Internal Improvement etind, this office says hea in error, and has
furnished the wrong etXhact number, however a rubber stamp says this
property has been sold for taxes, now whoes liable, since I hav.paid
every thing including stamps, and on the city statement, interest and
clerk fea. 1928.

Certainly you can get all these receipts, both' SEAE and COJTly, City,
and Drainage taxes paid in full, and late credits for refunds on 1928
and 1929 taxes I don't remember if this refund was made byahe city but
I believe it was.

Please send me a papernoeap, or better, your opinion of the tract 59
section 13. TP 50 Range 49. ten acres, the Elamingo Grovr says it is
ready for cultivation, could you suggest any one that would cultivate
it for several years for nothing paid as for rent.

I-nout use this for publication, until you have checkecrmo up and see
if I am right and I mnow from receipts, and a personal check up from
Here that I mst be the one to prove our case by, hence I am at your
service. .

show the state letters returned to me written on in pencil
and two statements lately from the tax collector of state
and county office, in which both statement differ as to the amount
of my taxes due. Please don't go to any expense to make me a report,
and advise me if I should advertise for a farmer in the news paper
also. With sincere good wishes.

Story of the Jewett Appraisal Service

Perhaps you will be interested in a little personal his-
tory of the Jewett Appraisal Service including the present
personnel and how this firm of professional appraisers is
equipped to serve you in giving an accurate description
and appraisal of any Florida property.


How This Service Started
Frank R. Jewett, founder of the Jewett Appraisal Service, is
a native of Vermont and a graduate of Harvard College, class of
1903. He was for several years in business in Buffalo, N. Y. and
FRANK R. JEWETT later came to Florida and established a real-estate business here.
Founder and Manager of the He is a practical real-estate man, thoroughly trained in business
Je'wett Appraisal Service and in the principles of real-estate investment and values.

A Much- Needed Service for Property Owners
With the rapid growth of the real-estate business in Florida it became apparent that there
was great need for some one central agency whose sole business it should be to supply owners,
mortgage-holders and prospective buyers with accurate information and unbiased appraisals on
Florida property. Mr. Jewett therefore decided to devote his whole time to this work and started
the Jewett Appraisal Service in a small way in June, 1926. The business grew slowly at first until
enough reports had been sent out to gain the confidence of property owners. Then it grew very ra-
pidly necessitating several additions to the business which now gives employment to a score of people.

Complete Descriptive Appraisals With Maps and Pictures
Jewett Descriptive Appraisals are submitted in the form of neatly bound typewritten docu-
ments that fully describe and bring out all the points of value in the property. Every report
is based on a personal visit and careful study of the property. Photographs and a map are
furnished with each report. A carefully considered estimate of the present value of the property
is included in each report. Possibilities for a future increase in value are thoroughly discussed.

A Practical Aid to Property Owners and Buyers
These thorough-going, unbiased Descriptive Appraisals have been of great value to property
owners. They are of greater assistance in making sales than any sales letter or talk. They
have been used as a basis for borrowing money. They have saved owners thousands of dollars
by suggesting new courses of action regarding their property. They have given prospective
buyers sound and unbiased information.
With the growth of confidence in this service, some of the largest local and northern banks,
through their real-estate and trust departments, have become clients of the Jewett Appraisal
Service, which is now unquestionably the largest and best-known firm of independent professional
appraisers in the state.
Reports Supplied at Small Cost
The cost of Jewett Descriptive Appraisals has been made sufficiently low to place them within
easy reach of every owner of Florida property. Every owner who wishes to make the most
of his investment, should take advantage of this opportunity to get in line with the present
market and obtain complete, up-to-date information regarding his holdings.
