Dr. Thomas s.Will,

Tallahassee, Florida.




Dear Doctor Willi




Yours of the 4th has been received.

I send you copy of the 1930 River and Harbor Act,1

I also send you Part 1 of the Hearings before the

Committee on Commerce on the River and Harbor Bill, which will explain

the item,

You will recall that after two or three revisions

of the report, which I obtained through resolution of the Commerce Com-

mittee, we finally got it in shape where we could proceed with it.j

The River and Harbor Bill in the House provided for the

adoption of the project.



The estimated cost was some 9 Million Dollars, and local

interests were to contribute, according to the report and the House Bill,

50 percent $4,500,000.00.


It passed the House that way.


' i-













-2-


When it came to the Senate we got it amended so as to

reduce the amount of local contribution to 2 Million Dollars,]

The Senate, therefore, saved the District, State and

local interests, $2,500,000.00 in that item.

The Senate amendment was agreed to in the House, and now

the project is to cost in excess of 9 Million Dollars, and local

contribution, both as to navigation and flood control, will be

2 Million Dollars.

You will likely have some more excitement when the

Legislature meets tomorrow

I regret very much to see animosities which have

apparently developed.



Sincerely yours,




Enclosures under

separate cover.

Yaqui Indians of Arizona To Hold

Weird Observance of Easter Tonight


Barbaric Boom of Tom-Toms
Will Call Indians To
Semi-Pagan Rites

PHOENIX, Ariz., April 4. (O)-
The barbaric boom of tom-toms .will
call. the Yaqui Indians of Arizona
and Sonora to a weird, half-Chris-
tian, half-pagan observance of Eas-
ter as the sun drops beyond the ho-
rizon tonight.
In Guadaloupe. near Phoenix,
Pueblo, uear Tucson, and a score
of Yaqui villages throughout the
Mexicab state of Sonora, the Indian
interpretation of Christ's passion,
death and resurrection was to be
depicted in pantomirbe.
.In each yllag Inadian braves,


their bodies streaked with paint
and their faces grott-quely ma~ked.
prepared to chant and dance before
candle lit altars of the priests.
Near the altar in each village was
a rudely constructed rock sepulchre,
in which a figure representing that
of Christ will rest. It will be
watchedd over by three small girls
who, attired in white robes, will
represent angel..,
When the sun peeps over thl hori-
zon Sunday morning, the dancers
will go home.
The ceremony is a mixture of
Easter rites as taught the Indian
by the Spanish padres and pagan
customs inherited from long-dead


forefathers.

Dear Dad,

Received your last letter today, and the other a
couple of weeks ago. I have neglected writinguntil I am
ashamed. I have oiwed Harold a letter for about two weeks
too. Business has held_up very-well so far. There has been
very little rain and there was a lot -f sja shipped, which
made the shi- ping. season about a month longer, and now some
farmers are repairing their trajst rs, and starting.to low.

have taken advantage of the slack period to catch
up some back work, and to.do some work on the building. Iva n
Smith is working at putting more piLings under the mainbuild
ing and getting the sag,_q of it. The foundation was not
made strong enuf when the bldg was moved back two years ago,
add the siils were about to break on account of the lack of
posts to the rock. I am also having a concretffloor poured
in the new part .of the s'eep, and had the ro-of repaired.
When all this is done I will have to quit1uil I can make
some more money.

I appreciated your letter in which you referred to
,-other. I don't think you are crazy. I hope that some day
I amy get a chance to talk with her myself. There is not .
a day'that I do not think of her- I have been saving some
money to buy a irmonuagt. and Gertrude and H- and have
selected the kind we want. Harold wanted to ,\:a his- siare,
but has b-en so hard up, that we were waiting allittle until
he was in better shapr.

I am sendin: you a money.-rder with this, and if
you need any more money when you get ready to leave, send me
a wire. It certainly does npt -ont- you aich to liXe. D.ont
deprive yourself. You dont-.nse.2d to, -Any time you need a
little cash. let me know.

Hope to see you soon. and learn the details of
what you have been doing. Hope you are getting along o.k.
We are all well With love.

CANTON, ILLINOIS
July 29, 1931
Editor of Fort Lauderdale Daily News,
Fort Lauderdale, Florida
Dear Sir:
I have been taking your weekly edition for some time and the
reason that I took it was that I might keep posted on the situation
in-the Everglade District. Fortunately, or unfortunately, I have a
ten-acre tract located as follows: Tract 7 and 8, Section 2-51-39
Broward County.
I have owned this land for fifteen or eighteen years. At the
1 time it was purchased there were promises made that this land would
be thoroughly drained and ready for cultivation years ago. During
these years I have paid taxes, which at the present time is no small
matter, running as high as taxes are on our valued farm lands here
in Illinois. I am anxious to know hqothis taoponey is spnt and
whether these_people out in the section where the above lands are
located are getting any bjaefit whatever from the taxes levied and
collected against that property.
Is there any movement to develop drainage in that particular
locality? I noticed an article in your paper written by a Dr. T. E.
Will, published in your issue of July.&5. I am at a loss to know
wh their or not the above.Rroperty was located any where near enough
jtto any developedJ.aids to be of any value. "-gain, if these improve-
ments are made as set forth in his article, will it be of any ad-
vantage or disadvantage to this particular location?
I can assure you I am anxious to know something about the real
conditions and facts, and if you have any information as to how this
improvement (if an improvement) will effect the above lands. I
would also thank yqu for your viewpoint of the situation as to
whether or not impiovea~nts will be of any value.

Thanking you, we wish to remain
Very respectfully yours,
FIIIDT ^U D, TRU. T CO.

-mJ- IMPROVED WATERWAYS
==== UNI UMPROers WATERWAYS
.I.I m mB POTENTIAL IfTER Y $S






"Every drop of water that runs to the sea without
performing its work for man is an economic loss."
PRESIDENT HERBERT HOOVER.



"The transportation question for Florida outweighs
in importance all other economic and industrial ques-
tions." A. F. KNOTTS.


Transportation and civilization go hand-in-hand.
"Ships that pass in the night" do us but little if any
good. Barges stop everywhere.

The cross-Florida link of the Intracoastal water-
ways system has ceased to be of local importance only.
It is now a necessary part of the great inland and
coastal waterways of the continent.
The people are entitled to the best ways-water-
ways-railways-highways-airways. Waterways are
the most natural ways and by far the most economical
ways of transportation.

"Each kind of transportation should be developed in
cooperation with the others, with the understanding
that each has its own special field, in which it par-
ticularly excels. : The public should have the
best form of service that each can produce, or which
can be rendered jointly by two or more in combina-
tion." W. W. ATTERBURY, President,
Pennsylvania Railroad



"Public opinion is calling more and more clearly for
coordination of the various agencies engaged in the
% ork of transportation. That demand represents
sound public policy. The aim of all means of trans-

portation should be to give the public the best and
cheapest service possible. Whatever defeats that aim
is wasteful and should be avoided."
L. A. DowNS, President,
Illinois Central Railroad System.


The Florida Inland and Coastal Waterways Associa-
tion has always worked for, is now working for, and
will ever continue to work for Florida waterways,-
leaving it to them who have the authority to de-
termine where these are to be located and which ones
shall be constructed first. It favors ship cinals as
well as barge canals, and supports all needed water-
way and harbor improvements.

Doctor Jells,
Belle Glade, Florida.



Dear Doctor:

Our representative,Mr. Hull, advises that you own
considerable property in your vicinity and we would
be very pleased to have an opportunity of quoting
you prices on bonds that you might be able to use
in settling your taxes.

We will be glad to have you drop in to our office
on your next trip to West Palm Beach and possibly
we may be able to work out some kind of an arrange-
ment whereby you could represent..j in your district.

As you perhaps know,we have been dealers in Florida
Municipal Bonds for a number of years and have a
contact which enables us to furnish bonds to you
at the lowest possible market price. In fact *e
believe we wm furnish bonds to more tax adjusters
in the State at the present time than any other
bond house.

Assuring you that we would be very glad to hear
from you and go over the situation with you, we are,

Yours very truly,


MUNICIPAL IIIV&STvTIiT CORPORATION.

Mr. T.E.Will,
Ft.Lauderdale, Fla.


My dear Mr. Will:


Since seeing you yesterday I have had a chance
to finish reading all of your articles which I am re-
turning under separate cover with my grateful thanks.
I do hope that by all of us working together we are
going to get the maximum of help for the Everglades
country. Certainly your clear exposition of the
history of this country and of its peculiar problems
is going to have a very marked effect.

Will you please express to our mutual friends
in Belle Glade and South Bay my kindest greetings and
my regret that I am not going to be able to get all the
way round the edge of the Lake on this particular trip.
I have not forgotten that splendid dinner and that
valuable little conference, and I am sure that you
realize'how earnestly I am trying to help this section.

Cordially yours,
