West Palm Beach,







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




Dear Dr. Will:-


Your letter of August 17th, in regard to record
of traffic on North New River Canal, has been
received.


The reports of the Locktenders, in regard to
traffic, were made direct to the Secretary of the
District, therefore, we do not have this record
in this office. I am forwarding your letter to
Mr. Ben Herr, the present Secretary, as my ser-
vices, as engineer,were discontinued July 18th,1952.

The United States Engineers Office in Jacksonville
make an annual report of water transportation on
all canals, therefore, it is possible you could
get the information from them in completed form.

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.
S' Laudetdale needs the Glades worse than. the Glades need Lauderdale. Lauderdale can't live
a i.ortourists. 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, aboub'
$7,000 or $8,000 per year.
SBut the new taxes and new business this will bring will turn this little outgo into a BIG INCOME.
Farther, it vill hel]i(f t a foun'dati inder Lauderdale, and make it a cit~Rl -: .

this referendum. -

Soiie have said, "We won't vote any moi6 money to the old Board."

But do you know that these men are all out?

You ask, "Wfio will follow them?" I answer, "Let the Everglades owners name their qwn
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. /

It is to be regretted what little, if any, revenue Yiami is deriviang

because we are isolated from this region, by lack of waterways and
roads. The State Highi.ay 'Department is now contemplating the
furthe. extension of thc road alon.: the North New River Canal, to

sonneating it -Lp with the lake, and Miami has nothing. The

Dr. Thomas E. Will,

Dear Dr. Will:

Upon my return to the office a few days

ago, I found a letter from you under date of August 17th

addressed to Mr. Blenn V* Scott, concerning the record of

transportation on the North New River Canal for the period

1912 to 1924.

As you know the office has been closed and

the records stored away. However, I should be glad to

furnish you with this information if we had it. We have

notbeen able to locate this information in this office.

At the time-the records of the District were transferred

to West Palm Beach, the books of account and the tax re-

cords were the ones that were brought down. Mr. Elliot

retained all records relating to the engineering work of

: the district and records of this sort, and you may be able

to obtain that information from his office if you have not

already written him.

Very truly yours

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


Dear Sir:

Replying to your letter of September 7, you appear
to have misapprehended in several respects the situation in
connection with the present review of previous reports on
the North New River Canal and Lake Okeechobee situation.

You assume that there will be no surveys. The pre-
scribed procedure in such matters calls for the preparation -
(of a preliminary report before any surveys can be made; the I
report now in preparation is that preliminary .report, and thel
absence of surveys to date is, therefore, only to be expected
Should the evidence submitted by you and other local interests
be such as to appear to warrant a survey, it will be recom-
mended in this report and, presumably, made in due course of
time.

You assume that there will be no _hearngs. It has
been the experience of this office that the submission of
information and opinion by local interests in carefully con-
sidered and prepared documentary form is very much more ef-
fective than any possible presentation of the same material
at a public hearing. This office will welcome the full
presentation of your case, but considers that the hearing
would add!othing to the force of such presentationiand would
not, therefore, justify its cost in time and money. In case
lany considerable element of local interests 'feils that the
omission of a public hearing will prejudice the full presen-
jtation and consideration of your case, a hearing will be
called, although, frankly, the necessity or advisability of
such action cannot be seen.

Although the preliminary report of this office has
been tentatively scheduled for submission to higher author-
ity on October 5, such extension can be secured as will af-
ford all those interested ample time for the preparation and
presentation of their case. At the same time, it is desired
that such presentation be made as soon as conveniently pos-
sible. Your assumption that the report of this office isal-
ready "largely made up" is erroneous.


ADDRESS REPLY TO THE DISTRICT ENGINEER, u. s. ENGINEER OFFICE, P.,O. BO JACKSQNVVLE. FLA.










Dr. Thos. E. Will,
Belle Glade, Fla.
September 15, 1952.


Mr. Blackman made a trip to Fort Lauderdale and your
Glades country, and had conferences with a number of those in-
terested in the present situation; unfortunately you were not
at home when he called to see you. In the maID r..:of confepnces,
as in that of public g'aings, it is believed thai te sqbmission
oryour data and arguments in documentary form, whrch can ac-
company the report for the information and consideration of high-
er authority, is much the more satisfactory procure.

SI assure you that this office desires to afford you
and other local interests every reasonable facility for the full
presentation of your views and facts, and will endeavor to give f
those views and facts impartial consideration. If you will in- /
dicate the date when yo a'iTf"conveien lybut" without undue
Delay, complete the preparation of your material, the report
of this office will be correspondingly postponed. If you feel
that any additionaljorce can be givgE your.-case by a con-
ference with Mr. Biackman, or by the holding of a public hear-
inghe necessary arrangements will be made upon request. In
view of the fact that request for postponement of report should
be made not less than 10 days before date of submission, and
must propose a definite new date for submission, a prompt reply
to this request saild be made by you.

Very t urs,



B. Dniin,
Major, Corps of Enginee

VOTE "YES"

,ON THE,.

Broward Drainage -District Referendum


Tis 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.
i "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 milton 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
dut fromtheir 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 wfant 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.

Broward Drainage District' Referendumn


This referendum ought to carry, BIG'.' It's the ONE THING that will help the Back Coiuntry.
And the Back Country will then help the town.

Lauderdale needs the Glades worse than the Glades need Laude.rdale.. 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 yill bring pay-rolls, and, .Y.EAR-ROUND TOWN.

But the Everglades must have reclamation funds. Hence the Broward Drainage District must
sell its bonds.

B1it it must first have more people 4nd 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.
lo-you know how the Eveiglades have been cariy'ing the Coast?


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 fro, heir 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
N this refee dum. -- -- .. .. .. .. -

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 theGovernor 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.

FORT LAUIDERnALE,FLA.

October 17, 1932.


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

Dear Mr. Will:

We are in receipt of your letter of the
14th instant, which refers to the notice of sale of
your Receiver's Certificate held by'us as collateral
security to your loan of $3.60.

You are doubtless advised that we made a
number of loans on these certificates and as we are
now carrying a large number of them as past due, we
are required by statute to charge them qff of our books
after a certain length of time, and to do so it is nec-
essary that we give the makers of the note notice of
our intention to sell their collateral.

In your particular case I am sure that
there will not be a great deal of loss to either of us
on account of the size of your loan, and the notice we
sent you was more of.a formality than anything else.

I hear that you are doing some very good
work on the New River Canal. You are to be congratulated
for your untiring efforts in thia direction.

Ver :'74ruly. yours,


J. D.

Dr. Thos. E. Will
Belle Glade, Florida

Dear Sir:

In compliance with your request of October 27,
authority is this day being requested to postpone
submiJnori of the report of thisaffice on North
New River Canal and Lake Okeechobee from the
present scheduled date, Ilovember 7, to January. 16,
1933. Due to I:he scheduling of other reports an"
work for the intervening period, that date is the
earliest on which the report can be conveniently
completed if postponed at all. In case it is de-
sired that the report reach Congress before possible
action upon a river and harbor bill, it is suggested
that no further postponement beyond that date would
be wise.

Very truly yDtis,

November 2, 1832.


Mr. Howard Sharp,
Canal Point, Florida,

-Dear Mr. Sharp:

In my last letter I perhaps should have said that
your name would not be used in reference to an expression of
opinion about that levee and channel in Lake Okeechobee. I
k s/wished your opinion f'or passing on to Hon. J. J. Kindred who
was Chairman of the Rivers and Harbors Committee inT"ongress
when approval was given to surveys andrfor work on Cross-
State Canals. He now wishes to know the extent to which mis-
itakes were made by his Committee and to what extent they may
Tbe rectified at this late_date. He has at my suggestion al-
ready talked with Mr. Garner and with other members of Con-
)gress who are keen for economy measures.

He has told me of the great pressures that were
brought to bear on his Committee andof the Tack of known
opposition at the time. The two millions of dollars f
Xfederai expense for enlarging the channel of the Call sa-
hatchee River are all right, but the seven-millions gcling in
,ito that Canal and levee seem to mean an unwarranted expense
'in the interest of privateprojects.

I have told him that I knew of a man who knew
more about Everglades affairs than any one else and who was
fearless in expression of opinion. I did not mention your
name and shall not do so.

By the way, I am enclosing a letter from Senator
Walcott who brings up a point about automobile roads in the
proposed Everglades National ark. I tell him that they
* would be feasible only on the East and West sides of the
tract. As for disturbing the wild life, we have data from
other national parks where bears and deer come up to auto-
,mobiles to be fed and where blue grouse and whiskey jacks
jgo into tents and steal beans from the table where people
are eating. On the Tamiami Trail the 'ry herons and ducks
may be seen asleep less than one h re feet from where
automobiles go .whizzing past at short tervals. Alligators
there keep right on sunning thenlelve in plain sight.

SYou ruly

I received yours, of

I do not know whether
it is a good policy for me to try and get up

think it a better policy to lie in bed forever.
Of course I may change my mind and get up and

Mr. Thomas E. 71ll
Belle Glade, Fla.

Dear Mr. Will:

I have your letter cf November llth and
was glad to hear from you.

I do not understand why something should
not be done in Road 26. The appropriation, as you know,
has been made and certainly it is high time that work
be started on this project.

S "ow that the election is over I think vwe
all should make some concerted and combined effort to get
behind this project and behind the State Road Department
and see just what is holding up the commencement of work
on this Road.

I assure you that I am willing to do all that
I can to bring about some action in connection herewith.

If we had a few more fellows like you who
would stay with a proposition we could get something done,
but it seems to be taken by spells.

I am always glad to have a word from you.



Yours very truly,
D IR/a

VOTE '4ES"

ON THE

F 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 willbring 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 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.
VOTE "YES." And then help the Evergladers get their own kind of a Board.

The richt-of-way for road. ,26 is just about

I note the mortgage sales of tax-delinqueut lands, In 1931,at Tallahasseeti-

will oatah the old 20 000 would-be Home-Builderywho boum t uvr 20 years agoI
and hrve never yet h:l a chance t'j settle on their land"

He replied." 0 no;we're only after the fpeoulators"sor words to that effect.

Since 1910,I've b.'en the champion f those old buyeragand have wora mrnelgrto?

--might use their landes

In ainy waysthkee conditioneoas regards their labds-in the greateaw)grage I

surveyed--I had to hire a surveyorgand havo him survey ry section 35--44.-3---,.
And practically none of this land has either reclamation or trani portitisauz~ th eie:
seatlal to its use. Worse atilllthe horror we never imagined to be poibietthe
GLADES 'WILD FIRS,haa swept sever and againoer thousands of acrealand deetroyed.-

The old buyers were sold on the eoatteratioa plan." This wna not their fautt:
it was the plan o:fered thefa with high praise--which was true of soil and a' 14

Every one said," 01" Then the II2oardOwhom I visitedsaid: All you. 'a do
