VOTE "YES"

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. 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,.(00 per year.
But the new taxep 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 tq 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 thenn" 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. ..,ill.
S BelAle Glade, Fl .

Dear Lr. ,'ill:-
'ias very glad to receive your letter of 3i"d.iist.,but re.rot to lec.-rn
that R.eal-estate conditions in the Gl.des are in such dis'favour .
The tissue oopy Uyu seit to me, I wa returning haerewuith as you requested.
Several ofyour statements regarjdiaL cause & effect w'.erie i ereat surpriee to me,
for all alont* for past several years, I had the opinion that .evelopraent of the Glades
'a s being steadily pushed to satisfactory end,tht fromj the Lalte to the .tilatie border
. the drai-n zge sy.t.em was beinrc v'orked out properly for the protection of a;rcillturil
crops'" nd safe residenttil sections _t least to Judge by the tax bills that 1 have
paid e-.ch year,'.'ould indicate such progress,vivL- "Lvoralades Drainag-e Di.strirt" 37.18
"Okzeechobee Flood Control" 14. B, "liapolean iB.irovward Draiunage" 28.19 42.47
"L;avi tion r& rort Tax" 11,1 1. i0
Tctal for Improve!.:ent and maintenancee 1931 = 1.73
This sun. co.mpose1 ;/Z of .l' tota.l taxes,and on that t.bis f'r eaCch
owner, I have been believir.n that anZ early .edir:nption of the Jladc-s '.'s forth-cuminir
Referrivr! to yoitr statement that the railroads have built solid filling
road-bedv across the canals and streames-seeme surprising to me,because it wouild-be safer
for tlhemiselve-. to conf.t.-act abittment .alls and bridge raross,thus perimittini free flow'-
age of water to the Lea. BSEldes I should s'ippzse i'oth the Federal -cvT. and the State
S Govt. 'would aienforce such coratruct.on -and flow v -f su'Tlu. waters .
It st-enqs hard to Irn.a.ine any intentional desire to binrder full and cc-op-
erative efforts from every oormunity :-m the Coast to speer the developrient of the Glades
and to produce comrroditles for shlip:ment through the 'orts of T-.iLa anid Fort Lauderdale
via water r rjaites c roc's 3tate water route. fpr:n F't. Lauderdale to the Lake a.id the
westerner n o-utl-t to the Gulf is most ir.jportant for movirg the products of the ilades .
It should not be expected that the Cities and Countles ojf Southern Florida
can be responsible fo:r the entire development of the: Glades,and therefore the Federal
Govt. and the State Lesis-;ature should unite to make a speedy job to bring the entire

VOTE "YES"

ON THE


Broward


Drainage


District


Referendum


This referendum ought to carry, BIG. It's the ONE THING that will help the Back Cuntry..
And the Back Country will then help the town.
S Lauderdale needs the Glades worse than the Glades need Lauderdale. Lauderdale can't live
on tourists. SHE MUST PRODU.CE.
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 Cournty 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 if 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?
SDo 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?
.f
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? I
You ask, "Who will followethem?" 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, Florida,





My dear Doctor:




This will in the absence of Senator Fletcher

for a few days acknowledge receipt of your letter dated 22nd

instant and say that when available I will forward you copy

of the Emergency Relief Act.i


I notice the Senatorts name was not mentioned

by you in the article which was enclosed with your letter.I It

occurs to me you might have stated it was through the efforts of

Senator Fletcher based on your request, that "a resolution was

obtained from the Senate Committee on Commerce and sent General

Brown, requesting him to do this work,"

Be that as it may, we will not take exception to

your oversight.

Very truly yours,





Secretary to Senator Fletcher.

July 29th, 1932.

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

_Dear Doctor:

I have your letter of recent date and I have also had
another letter from Major Dunn. Commodore Brook has re urned
after a two weeks absence.

Major Dunn would much prefer not to have a public hear-
ing, on the North New River Canal question because he believes that
most good will come from carefully prepared written statements
submitted in documentary form. He also states that under their plan
of conservingrexpenditures that he would prefer not to hold the
hearings about which he formerly wrote us. From-previous experiences,
I am convinced that carefully prepared data is #ore effective than an
open meeting where the opposition may have an opportunity to muddy
up the water.

I noted in your letter that you refer to Mr. Alle1p, who
you thought could secure the data on tonnage shipped from the Lake
region. I do not remember a Mr. Allen in that area and after talk-
ing it over with Commodore Brook, he is of the opinion that you
could do that particular part of it better than anyone else, and
that it would have more_.Aeight with the engineer department. If
you compile these figures, could you not do this using some of the
data which appeared in the paper j~ublished in the Lake area and
supplementing these figures with other* tonnage data which you might
be able to secure direct fromarail road or from shippers?

/ Commodore Brook and I will probably make an inspection
of the No. 3 lock and probably other sect&nns of the canal. I am
having certain information prepared at the Chamber of Commerce here,
but so far no great amount of the data has been put into final shape.

Yours very truly,




S. E. Lawrence

Dear Dr. Will:

Your letter received and I note all you say in
regard to the work you are doing.

Mr. Lawrence advises that it will be necessary
for you to get the tonnage and the data that you and he
figured ought to be obtained, as I know of no way that it
can be done here,

Enclosed find check for $15.00 as per your request.

Mr. Lawrence and myself are going to make a survey of
the burned-out lock the early part of the coming week.


Yours very truly,

Bell' Glade,Fla.,
aug. 11,1932.


Col. J.J.Loving,
flesident Member,
Bo.,rd of engineers for Rivers and Harbors,
2848 M.unitions Bldg.,
Washington,D, C.

My dear Col.Loving:--

The packagee reached me at last. Thank you. It contained the Press-Story sec-
tion of my contribution. I turned in,also,a Ms. of about a dozen pp. Mr. Freer
still had it 'while I -.as in D.C.

That matter I want to use,again,and enlarge up-o.. If rulcble,I should' be glad
to receive that,a.lso.

Col. Loviin,I'm in an embrr.ssing position. You know, I've be:.n on this job,
.longer,lmo-t ,th-n any or.e else;and h:,ve,ithout doubt,done more work on
:the proble.I, ." How mr-y the Florid:- E vergl'desbe mnide fit for h b it -tion and use?"
th:n his any otl-er hwua-.n _. 'ing ,living or dead.
f:y fi -s :re .jarued -:ith the accLunul ti-n-n of ye-,rs. The' fundemn:ntl f- cts J ire
as simple to me as is the rule of three.

,AnJyt I run up .-;,-.inst"engine-rs",whose vie7ws--m ny of them,?t least,--are
absolutely in conflict with mine.

.almost all .these engineers live remote. Their Everglades study has been brief.
Your district engineers et-y but a feL. years. They are some 500 mis. ,away from -
the scene of action. Thot"Review Boerd",to whose conclusions great importance
-as attache ( is,yet,I fear, That Canal-D-,imniing scheme was au:ted once more in
.our report of 3-3-3,');th-at bcard vias on the job but 42 days. In that time
they: could n.t learn the alphabet. Two of them--the fair two--live in D.C. ~.nd low
a,respectively. They p.s,.ed,finally, ( it w1.as assumed),on issues vital to the
Everglades; .ndJtheir most important decisions were 3DAD '.7R011O-.

An exa:-nple of the :'w.rongness" of the RPeview Eoasrd is sho.'.n by that "Canal-Dam-
ring" proposal,' quoted by your men from Brooke in Doc. 215,to Frazier,in above,
Sof .7-3-3', Th prpos 1 h-s ?en isedj as -. main reason for killing the ITorth
Canal--most important c.n'l in the Everglades. lovw,at the meeting in your of-
fice,I-',y 1 and ",19'8,IG.E'.Hills,'7ho ;-.s there,and Fred. C.3llic.t,in Tallthassee ,
AUIHiLATED th 1t proposal. Hills '."'-s emphatic ~rhat whatever courtesies had been
shown it officially ,it `i, irzV' E2 11 ADO"TED. :D T'

There's a whole bunch of funny" things about this very point:--
1--Hills .as one -.f the Rev.Bd. that made it.
2--Hi'lls had been given some very direct orders a short time before going to
your meeting.( This is not generally kno-.n. I got it from the man r. o gave the
orders.)
3--These orders undoubtedly caused both Hills and Elliot to change on that point
at that time.
4--"1.it sai1( -ire to Hill-) ,'Contract let for remainder requires compl-tion
to laT!e in 36 mos,". c. ( Spe-.1:ing of L.Canrl,abote Arundel work,ending at 25%

in ans-wer7 to my earnest inquiry .hieth er,under the TTwenty-i llio Bond

the North canal,would notat list,be made right,he(th; man who would,undoubtedly,
have doie the work,if done at all,,.nswered,that,"IT IS NOT A PART OF T-HE PRFSE3IT

1928,t he wire was read in your meeting th:.t the contract for completion irh.d be -
,rlet. And',-ince thenwe've never heard a word of any such contract!

T Tow, my records swarm with this kind of stuff. I suppose I'"i the only fii-n
who has k-p-t them. But I was fighting for the .VTY LIFE OF T!- 22 -oLD3 AI..J
ITS 7-10E-'L and ,long since,I learned to ?IGHT WITH FACTS.

l:ow,your men have had no such: collection of inside dataso they've follo-ed
alon:,innocently but blindlyon the crooked trail made for them by just such
men as above quoted.

It's been assumed that because a man is an engineer",and holds a big job,
9' there'f6re he is a safe guide. At least I'm assured that view is taken,and natuarl1
ly.

But I rise to assure you that #in this caseydur people CARCL OT,AFZLY DO THIS.
It's the broad road that leads to destruction,

v s-ecial job has been,and now is,to see that your people !learn the VITAL,
FUl'Lir'rTALEAC TS. Genl.Brown and I had it all arrnced that this should be
done.

I went to Jacksonville by op;.9ointment,and was assu ed that all that would be
done;certainly as to Hearings and Surveys.

After conferences at Ft.Lauderdale,and correspondence with Jacksonville ,date
for first hearing was set:Sept.8,next.

T7ow it seems the hearings have been called off. liether the surveys,too,I
do not know.

a--iTo reclamation from Flood-Control plan;or from the moneys they have
been ":"'ing fpr 20 years for reclamation, ,ever yet delivered;and they'll swear and
e#- say," Sold u gin I'm through't In fact,as it Is, they're getting through at
a distressingly rapid pace. If they don't walk out,they're forced out;as I was
in 1920-21. Have never yet been able to return to the First Upper Glades Set-
tlement",my own,founded Oct.24,1913;in the most strategic place in the Iver-
glades". ( Testimony of F.E.C.R.R. Genl.Freight Agt.,1924.)

We're at the Cross-Roads. Barring a miracle,FLORIDA IS THROUGH,( with Ever-
. glades.) T.sted the Everglades and genl.Swamp Land Fund, 9-2-50. Gave most of it
to railroads. Destroyed,in recent years,her new power of selling Everglades
lands and bonds and collecting E7. taxes. She has never yet paid ONE CENT out of
her Treasury on Ev-rgl:.des;and deftly squirmed out of PA.YITG OIT CENT on this
.Flood scheme. (Loads it all on a small district:small beside the :Jcte.) And
,at a fearful rate,by neglect and lack of knowledge,she is allowing the region to
be BURIED UP.

This :.9,000,000( aside from God Alimghty) is our ONLY HOPE. If it is spent as
.,planned,that hope is also. dashed.

I'm nmt t lkin,: the lInlguse of a man tryingto wheedle money out of the Fed.Govt.
bu$ of one who has given 23 years to this region;and sees it,now,at its last gasp
unless the Fed.engineers can be induced to L.A7LJt' TIH FACTS,and then make such
costless changes in the plan as will SAVE T'TD DAY.

"Frinding my ax?" That was my ax is buried so deep under ROBBER T.'I3 that no
one knows when it will pay any one to dig it out. I'm working for the COITD:T
CAUSE 3: the G1iTERAL '.LAR,.

Please pardon a long letter,but it is a wire beside what ought to be written to
get this mess straightened out.

Please strain a point to come. Let me show you some things. You'll first see
the Lake Shore,and think I've been doing the fooling. This petty,favored strip
looks well. That is IT SPITE of Fla. maladministration. T-.ture did some reclaiming

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-

VOTE "YES"

ON THE

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 \yill follow.
These will bring pay-rails. 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 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.

board, by petition; and then let us all petition the Governor to appoint then. 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.

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

S 'D 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, ow'n properties. kept from voting, and taxed without representation?

West Palm Beach, Florida
August 24, 1932



Dr. Thos. E. Will
Belle Glade, Florida

Dear Dr. Will:

Your letter of the 17th to Mr. Scott has
been brought to this office for the attention of Mr. Herr,
the Secretary of the Drainage District,who is that Dis-
trict's custodian of records.

The Drainage District's office was closed
and its records stored about July 18th last and Mr. Herr
remained secretary with the understanding that he was to
do no clerical work since he was receiving no pay and
probably never will. He can execute and sign papers if
same are prepared for him.

I have asked some of the early employees
of the Drainage District about the data you mention and
am informed that a report was made to Mr. Elliot or his
predecessor, but we are not sure that such reports were
moved to this office I am inclined to think they were
not as Mr. Elliot retained certain records as connected
with the engineering work and valuable to him as the the~
Chief Engineer of the District.

Mr. Herr is out of town, called north on
account of his father's illness, and we are not sure
when he will return.

I would suggest that you write Mr. Elliot
regarding the data you want or have some friend in Talla-
hassee request it.

With kind regards, I am

Very truly yours,


S/

Dr. Tnomas E. Will,
Belglade Fla.

Dear Dr. Willsa

It has been so long since you nave
heard from me tnat you till probably be much sur-
ptised to receive this letter.


- A.'.









'"I


Altho I have been absent from Florida
several years, in fact 6ince just before the big storm
that country has seldomibeen out of my thoughts for
long.

The years pass along, and it Is hard
to realize that so many have passed. Many changes
come into our -lives and, the usual number have come
to me.

For eight or ten years, I have made my
home in California, and while the climate is satis-
factory here, I do ,not think there is any climate In
the United States dompatable with Florida, and I wish
I could be there.

K Mrs. Full n passed away more than a
year ago, which would lpeve me alone excepting that
my son lives here and I am with him. He is in ed-
ucational work, having been connected with the schools
here for about fifteen bears.

However I do want again to live in
Florida,; and it is in order to learn first hand
:from s.ome.one who really knows, that I am writing
to you..

I notice so .ich prope-,ty.;, bLig sold for
;'taxes there.' The last F.t LairiSrdale' paP .r had s-olid

I have some land I wouldn't cure to part with, but
(I would sell some If it is at all possible, as that
would make it easier to protect the rest.

Is there any appreciable development, or rather
/ re many people coming in arid putting land under
(cultivation.

One of my sons is especially interested, in
tne advisability of' g:ing down tj settle and develop
and if he went, I would go too, so we are just anxious
tI o know all about the glades from all angles, and
would truly appreciate an early reply.

I hope things nave gone well with you and your
/ family since last we met.

Sincerely yours, /
