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 w%'ill 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 he farmed. Then, as in Dade County. factories will follow.
These will bring pay-rolls, and a YEAR-ROU-D 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,i000 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 knjw that. for 15 years, most of the 20.1,000 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, "\\'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.
VOTE "YES." And then help the Evergladers get their own kind of a Board.

Wy dear Mr 3oDeialds-
thank you for the $8.S0 on my expenses to D.C. Wtlb a few more would
help. If they knew my errand they might,
The troubles we bave bhd are largely MMA MIADE ad ra out to 50WW TIH
THING U. I I put that In the papers I may ms get to D.C, Aut the
jlieadsa ought to help ame
IEST be there Jan. 25,and ought to be there now. It*B lack of fuads
that is holding me,

If the Old Buyers had followed your suggestion in the LtdeBwa,it rald ta
have been a walk-wawny for my campaigngfor Thave tne factaand am not a8ftll
to show them.

That doaenI'a hoping rwe can interest the ftd.#tGfl3 to help us;and stop
the rascvaity in this Glades management.

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 fir4t 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 $S.u000 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 tile 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, "W'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 tle 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 remrnived. 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.

My dear Madam:

I wrve your letter of 12-27-31, I appreciate your kind words. I Xa on-
ly O;oing my beat to nsee that the Old Buyers get what they paid forgRnd bswv'
been beaten out of thus far. Under present plansatheir chance is very
11'ryunaIean the plan I propose can be effected, And I charge nothing for it*
I nrant the St. Bd. to get some RnBd ready for r nattlement,and thn trad e
land in that area for the old buyers' landagand help these buyer to
succeed in Oheir settlement.

Thie fld.saya it will trade;but it bn no good lead ready,and no money.

INow,1f -lI got to D,C.,and explain th cae a to ''asih I hope to see their
present plans modified,no that we can big'e flocd-contrl, canal nr.vigation
and a lot of land r claimed;all out cf the C9,000,000 they ars nowi spend-
Ing ob a plan that bodly needs:x.-orvision.

Payir.g tarssc should give you a better chance to trade frnRthan if your
land = s behind in taxes, That ir the EOLY REASON ON LAIRTH I see for your
paying taxen,an things arc going.
Youi copild not move to the landbut my plan allows you to nare a compe-
tent prsaon to go,in your place.

The. Gladen attory is a tragedylthe record is little abort of crimitnal.
It mast be maade rightland that it what I am going to D.C. for.

I agrd money .n which h eLc gaeand stay till I can get something done.
I realize you may not be able to help. Maybe you can interest some one
whi- can.
If 1 had a saall fraction of the money wa have wasted on robber taxes
it would. B!, RAST to Got things changed.

1,E.Uint was an agent",and wanted pay fur hi. workgie I suppose. Warren
needs no additional pay for tolling you what you ask, Warren is an of.;'-

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 E.verglades 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 tir4t have more people :ind more values in it. This the bond-buyers insist on.
This won't cost Laulerd.ile one cent. It will cost Broward County one little mill on the dollar, about
$7,0l'l0) or $8,000.J per year.
But the new taxes and newly business th-i will bring will turn this little outgo into a BIG INCOME.
Further. it will help put a f foundation under Lauderdale. and wake it a city.
Do you know how the Everglades have been carrying the Coast?
Do you knu.w Broward's Everglades have paid in $7100,000 or $8()0,000, most of which has
helped build the Coast. rather than the Everglades?
Do you know that. for 15 years, mnrist 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. "W'e won't vote any muore 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.

Florida officials are in no position--for financial reasons-to re-

vast EMpire is doomed to lie empty and alaout without inhabitantpaales.8
other holp can be found.

Can it be found? It can. Where? In W7ashlngton. But will the Goeyrn-
ment assist reelamation? Not directly,asa yet;nor aiply as reclamation.

Howeverae an ITCICETT to its work of FLOO)-CCTRMCM and NAYIGATIait
is quita willing to aid reclamation. For the .Eerglades,herenowglies
the only hope. Aind if we cannot cultivate our lanaspof what value will

To this subject,I have given enormous attention. I know the documents,
almost by rotea;nd I have more than once coannulted and advised with lead-

Here is a fact few know. the flood Plan is bad. It was not conceived
by roderal engineers;but by othere,and adopted by Federal engine:-ruaand,
thro-;h thece and othQre,by Congress.

If this plan is pr-@ ed,I fully expect it to failsiu one of two waya:--

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 frotn 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.

\'OTE "YES." And then help the Evergladers get their own kind of a Board.

COAL
NOTARY PUBLIC KETCHUM. IDAHO
February 8, 1932 .

Dr. Thos. E. 7Will .
Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.

Dear Mr. *ill:-
It has been a great disappointment to me,that I could not again reach
Florida and especially Fort Lauderdale,for several years past,for I have been a landowner
there since 1909,and had the"Florida for a home" desire long before that time, but other
interests have worked against my longings,never-the-less I live in hopes for a change'
some day .
Having understood that you were perfectly familiar with real-estate condi-
tions and values in and about Ft.Lauderdale, I would like to be informed if you considered
a sale of my Everglades Tracts could be effected at this Season of the year,probably to
some Fruit or Vegetable Agriculturist ? Some six or seven years ago, I expected that I
was to realize on an average at least y150.00 per acre for 70 acres that I then and now
own Is it probable that at present time,a hudred dollars per acre could be obtained for
a part of the Tracts,or for all of them .Ak-QaO00 ?"'liy Tracts are as follows:-

20 acres Tract 3-- Section 25 Twnship 48 Range 39
10 10 27 2 51 39
10 P' 16 1 -" 50 ." 39
10 40 35 49 40
10 49 21 50 40
10 5 13 50- 40

70I have always kept paid i.the taxeg and drainae...assessments,and have war-
renty deeds and abstracts for all of them General depression of business in this part
of the Country has caused !ne to be getting. in cash reserves,so I would like to realize
something from the land in Florida .
Any information that you would convey to me,would be gratefully received
and appreciated,and if you could arrange a sale for me,would be pleased to reward you with
a comispleaseion .
Enclosed please find a stamped envelope addressed for a reply .

VOTE "YES"

ON THE


Broward Drainagg -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 cedst Lauderdale one cent. It will cost Broward County one little mill on the dollar, about
$7,l00 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.o00 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

VOTE X.YES.

ON THE

Broward Drainage District Referendum


This referendum ought to carry. BIG. It's the ONE THING that will help the Baick Country.
And the Back Country will then help. the town.
Lauderdale needs the Glades worse than-the Glades need Lauderdale.- Lauderdale can't live e
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 DImust have reclamation funds. Hence the Broward Drainage District must
sell its bonds,
But it must firt have more people and more values in it.- This the bond-buyers insist-on..
This won't cost Laudlerilale one cent. It will cost Broward County one little mill on the dollar, about
$7,000 or $S.000 p)er year.
But the new taxes and ne.- business this will bring will turn'this little outgo into a BIG INCOME:
Further, it will help put a foundation under. Lauderdale. and mnak' 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 Lhe 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, NVOTE "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 Governoi 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.

February 14, 1932.
Dr. Thos. E. Will.
Washington, D. C.

Dear Dad,

Received your letter of the 10th, and am glad to
hear you are getting acquainted with all the senators, etc.
and are making progress with your education of them and the am
public on the situation here. I know you enjoyed meeting ypur
old friends, Will Lee, Aunt Susie, Lillian, etc.

Since writing you last, our new Chamber of Commerce ha
has put'on two receptions and dinners, which may do some good.
The Governor and all his staff, except Amos, were here to ins-
pect the new prison farm, and were entertained in the Legion
Hall. I think there were over 100 persons present. All
the notables spoke and expressed their friendship and desire to
help the Glades, recognized it as a great asset to the state,
and so on. You can see the reports of the speeches in the
paper.

The other dinner was attended by 1Tr. Lupfer of the
State Road Board, and by a delegation of the V. P. B. Chamber d
of Com::ierce, and a represanative n of the State C. of C
The purpose of the meeting was mainly to present the need of
a good road to Kreamer I. and try to get the State ot help.
Several County Commissioners-were present. Several local men
made strong talks urging the need of a good road, and showing
by statistics the volume of produce and the value of the same
that is transported over the road every season. The Chairman
of the Commissioners, made the same talk that he did when
a committee from here attended a meeting of the Comm. in town.
He stated that 90.;' of the county taxes were collected from the
coast, and yet a far greater percentage than wexn were paying
was being spent here; that the county had very little money to
spend anyway, but that the pmrmx Commissioners were anxi us to
do all that they could thm to help in the way of improvements
here.

A report was made to the C of C. That the rumor of
stopping up the canals with the lake dyke was unfounded. The
Govt. Engineer had said that there .ould be gates which could
be closed if their were danger of a storm, but otherwise the
canlas would be left open.

Let me know how you are getting along, and if there is
anything I can do for you. We are all well and everything is
going along well, altho the long dry spell is hard on crops,
and good for grasp fires, Yours. ---

Everglades Friends of
Washington,D.C.

While I am here,I must mention a matter that has
caused me more grief than all the time,labor,heart.
ache and cold cash that I have ever spent in strug.
gling to make the Everglades what it ought to be,
and can be.

During my absence--working,as no other man,living
or dead,has ever worked to save and build the Ever-
glades,and you,with it--certain men in this city
have attacked and pursued me as though I were a
horse-thief or racketeer.

This,note ,they did in my absence;when I could
not meet them,face to face.

)My judgment is not infallible;but facts,contin-
ually developing,are powerfully proving that,on
Everglades matters,it has been better,by far,than
that of those in po 'er;not to mention that of those
here who have exhausted their efforts to cripple
me,and break my spirit.

Now I am here. Please note that I came,not on
the call of these letter-writers,nor on the writ
of any sheriff,but of my own free will,and in
spite of certain Florida people who tried to pre-
vent my coming.

Washington Everglades buyers are not seeking me.
I am seeking them,far and wide;through the mails
and over the telephone, Further,I have taken es-
pecial pain to invite thdse who ,in my absence,
have shown their hostility/ to me. Their oppor-
tunity has come. If they have questions to ask,
or charges to make,let them PROCEED NOW,WHILE I AM
HERE,ahd not wait till I have returned to Florida.

This point must not be forgotten. When I am dead
no man will be able to say," Will deceived medes-
erted me,and betrayed me." When I die,I shall die
with a clear conscience,certainly on Everglades

Dear Dr. Jill:

We are glad to hear from you and to know that you

are feeling encouraged about getting aid for the Everglades.

We did not publish the article in The Post because it would take

a column of space at a time when we are most crowded, and we feel

that very few Post readers would know "what it is all about".

While you and I are familiar with the subject, the majority of

the people who would see it are not familiar with it and would not be

interested. Just now we are obliged to limit our material

to that which has a general appeal, and I am sure you will

understand that this is so.

Mr. Conkling joins me in kind regards.

Yours sincerely,

Dwar Dad,

HIavent heard from you for quite a while, so decided
to answer ydur last letter. I get frequent inquiries from friend
as to how you are getting along and what you are doing. Aam
glad you are finding so many old friends, and are reviving
interest amoin the Home Builders. Hept you will see plenty of
the sights of :!ash. while you are there.

We are having a very slack time here now. It has
been rather slow since Christmas, but is almost as quiet as
summer time now, which is very unusual, as M!arch is usually
Sone of the busiest months of the year. These dull spells are
usually caused by frosts, but by a strange freak, the trouble
this year is that.we have not had any frost- nothing but fine
warm weather. The result has been that on account of the
warm weather, the insects have been thriving, and with the
long dry spell, the beans and peas have not been worth shipping/-
We had some good rains a week or so ago which helped greatly, /
both by encouraging the farmers to plant, and by putting out '/2
most of the fires.

I have got tired of seeing all my mechanics, doing
nothing, so decided to do some more work on the building to
keep them occupied at something. Have already put up some
doors and window shutters in the shop, and am now going to
lay a concrete floor in that part of the shop where the old
wood_floor is. It has rotted out very badly. I was going to
wait till sumrmerto do this work, but will do it now so as not
to have to lay gff any of the men.

Allison brot in the Dollar from Frank Mastersoin.
A. says that it is hard to get any money now that you have left.
Maybe he has not tried very hard. iMy experience is that it is
hard to get it anyway. Most of the people on that list wont
even pay me for old bills I can probably get a few more
dollars tho. I haven't had anything much to report to the
people yet, as to what you have done with Congress etc.

Am sorry to have held you up so long on the paste
receive, but am enclosing it now.

Have not found out anything yet about your r;B. Canal
tract. Vust close now for the mail. Yours, > -a ^

March 18, 1932.

Dr. Thea. E. Will,
Washington, D. C.

Dear Dad:-

Am sending some Ev. Sttlement I'olders, all I could
find except a few damaged ones, also some "Lost Tribes" which
you may want. I have seen a batch of the "Ev. Settlement"
which have not been folded, but could not find them this time.

The Church names which Er, Hoch wanted, I looked for, and
found a list in the file which you mentioned, but believe
those names are of the Pt. L. church people. H. has not been
here for them yet, so don't know whether they are the names he
/want a.

We have had the first real cold spell of the winter. 22 degrees
was registered at the Brown Farm, where Dr. Buck and Te der have
some beans under overhead irrigation. Ifost of their beans
were say.ed altho covered with icicles. We had frosts on two nigbs
with the wind from opposite directions, which causedmore damage
than otherwise would have been done. The first ni-ght i -got
the south shore of the lake, and the second night, with the
wind from t-ie east, there was considerable damage done on the
east_ shore, Pelican Bay, and Torry Id. Strangely enuf, some
beans at the Exp. .Sta. did not get frosted at all. There are
some crops which are not damaged. Owin- to the general freezing
out of competing Pections of the country, it looks as tho we may
/have a good spring season, altho it will be late. There certainly
is very litfTe going on npw.

I am glad you are finding lots of friends and congenial people
and that people there appreciate your work more than they do in
Ft. L.

I am glad that prospects look ,ood for state Road 26. What is
e-the latest on the canal?

Little Bobby is,here, ru' .aging around on the table. She was
sk for a couple of days this week with her stomach, but is
alright now. That is the first time she has ever kept us awake
at night. I got up at 4 a.m. to get Dr. Buck, but he was at the
Brown Farm, watching the icicles on his beans. Bobby says she
1/wants you to come back on the big bus and play with Bobby.

Hope you are still in your usual good health.
,How much longer do you think you will be in Wash? We would
like to see you again alt-io I know you are having such a good
'time you are not in a hurry to come back.E
