Dear Sir: J

The Appalachian bill may soon be reached in committee. A
favorable report is essential. This requires a majority of the
members. Nearly one-half are apparently favorable; the others
are doubtful or opposed. Thus the measure trembles in the
balance.

.*Jr..* The Speaker's opposition is evidently diminishing. If the
bill is favorably reported he will probably permit it to come to
a vote. Now is the time for work. Every Senator and Represen-
tative, and especially every member of the House Committee on Agri-
culture, and the Speaker, should be flooded with letters, tele-
grams and memorials. Will you not do the following:

(1); Write Chairman Scott, other Agricultural Committeemen,
the Speaker, your Representative and Senators;

(2). Interest your newspapers to demand the passage of the
bill and to send marked copies to the Agricultural Committeemen
and to other Congressmen;

(3). Interest your Commercial and other organizations to
send resolutions to the Committeemen and other Congressmen, and I
to ask the members of these organizations to write them;

(4). Write, and induce others to write, (a) to the Seare-
tary of Agriculture for his recent Report on the Southern Appa-
lachian and White Mountain Watersheds, and (b) To the Chairman of
the House Committee on Agriculture for the Report of the Hearing
held on January 30th, on the Appalachian-White Mountain bill.
These documents are convincing; furthermore, wide demand for them
will show Congress that the country is aroused. They should,
therefore, be scattered broadcast.

Enclosed are (1) names of Congressmen, including Agricultural
Committeemen; (2) a copy of the bill--the Lever (H.R.10456) Currier
(H.R.10457) and Ga.llinper (S.2985) bills are practically identical
and thoroughly satisfactory; (3) a bulletin for newspaper use.

Every friend of the measure should be enlisted. Not a mo-
ment should be lost, and no effort spared to insure the passage
of this bill in this session.

Yours very truly,



Enclosures.
Secretary.

Prof Thomas 36l ill

D=ar ?rienA:-
taur letter came to hand in due time. I shall be gld
to receive escpy of your magazine, containing the article to

which you refer. I think you are eminently fitted for the work to

which they have assigned you.

In regard to writing an article for your paper, I shall be very

glad to do so, and I think I could do so with statistical and

personal information. I have traveled nearly all over this state

and have a personal knowledge of most of the irrigated districts.

, Now in regard to the best place to settle, I chose North Y-kina

| because I believed thil .vicinity better, all things considered
thn a'. other. As compared with Wenatbhee, It is not better in

q ltyr but it it atei and It equally as goo4. You knew we

used to teach that land had the following values viz; 1 Productive,

2 Nearness to mr ket; 3 Social, or the desirability of the social

environment; 4 Esthetic, or the beauty of the situation.

Tow in regard to this country, it is the equal of any and further

the City of North Yakima is so situated geographically, that

several large valleys that are irrigated, and rapidly developing,

are bound to pour heir wealth into it. The Naches, is as large as

Hood River Oregon; the Ahtanum is as large as Wenatcbee; the Selah

Wenae and Moxee have each and every one territories almost as large

as the others named and have no other outlet for their trade except

the City of North Yakima. Then there is the Indian Reservation

henmadl a. so that its trade could go no where else; yet by the a

attftV$rve pner which a larger town and a county seat town has

over a smaller town, will draw a great deal of its trqde. I figure

therefore, that North Yakima, will in ten years, be a town of

50.000 people.

New in regard to what it will take to keep a family in comfort.

Five acres of 1 ;nd is enough. Five acres will yield as much as

160 in the middle states, or as much as 320 in the eastern states.

We will receive any where from 4300 to 1.000 per acre net profits

on the best varieties of fruits. In fact, there are a few men

here with only one acre, who claim they are making more off their

land, than the average family of the United States has as an income.

You can see that with these conditions, the population of the

country would become dense. I wish we might work up a project to

have a colony settlement of congenial persons, to settle under the

Tieten irrigating project which the Government is building.

There is now a colony of persons from New York, buying land and

improving it. Among them are Arthur Henry of Barnes and Sons,

Ida M. Tarbell, tVie Cashier of the Chemical National bank, Louis

Pohl the artist Architect and others. Now just what they will do with

an orchard, practically, no one knows; except that they will hire

some one to superintend the work and they reap the profits; but

they have investigated, and concluded it would be a good investment

and a pleasant place to live for a part of each year,

I will send you any literature we may have from time to time, and

any other questions you may ask, I will be glad to answer if I can.

Everglade Land Sales Company,
Kansas City, Mo.
Gentlemen:
I enclose you herewith my contract for a
ten'acre tract of your muckland.
I already own 10 acres of muckland, three
miles out of Dania, Florida. I rent my land at $15.00
per acre per year, to vegetable farmers. It is ne-w lad,
having been ditched or drained only six months.
The renters raise egg-plant, okra, peppers, lettuce,
and tomatoes, in the early fall, winter and early spring.
They make from $200Qto $300 off their lettuce, egg-plant,
okra and peppers, and from $l0L-to-U41OO per acre off
tomatoes; the latter being considered the best, cr9p.
My renters tell me there is enormous profit
in the raising of vegetables, and that poor negroes and
crackers pile up small fortunes in raising vegetables
for the northern markets. There is a great deal of poor
farming done in tnat section of the country by such
people, but nature is so lavish in her gifts, that they
succeed regardless of slovenly farming method.
Yours very truly,

My Dear Mr. U111,

The most important boek on Welfare work in indus-

I think by the Mluniipal Journale It was issued by Dostor Tolman

whose address is the Amerisan Instituts for Soioal Berrice 287 Fourth

Avenue, New York Citye I enclose a little leaflet about our own

work. The demooati features in our work differentate us from

other welfare enterprises and haveo eaued Iunh adverse eriticim from

people who don't believe in demooray, particularly the Welfare Do-

partment in the National Civic Federation*

You can doubtless get omr valuable information

from theme The Director is Miss Gertrude Beekso

I recently had a letter from Mr. C. H. Ingersoll, inquiring

about profit-sharing* If you are looking for onmsthing of this sort

why don't you write to him and perhaps he would be glad to have your

help in organizing such a line of work for his people.

Anything I scn do for you will be cheerfully granted.

Yours truly,

Gentlemen:-

In answer to your letter of Ootober 10th, I will state that I have boen long
outspoken in my support of the drainage of the Iverglades. This is now, and han been
for some time past, an assured fact, it being now a smtple problem of digging.

Opposition, fostered by many oasaes, it rapidly disappearing. In fact,
many formerly most bitter against it are now anxious. for and aiding it, as they more
fully realize the possibilities of the immensely fertile region and the benefit whioh
will arise to Miaai and Florida from its development.

The possibilities of the rerrglades agtoulturally are boundlesss, T.ai
muok soil is admitted among the richest soils in the wprld, and will grow talost iany-
thing in great quantities truck of all sorts, sugar oane, rioe and fruti (, iufiiag
many varieties praotioally unknown in the North) these are a few of. prs thdi with
which we expect to see the Glades covered in the next few years. Vitr the inooidi
of an industrious, intelligent olass from the North, it does not require the eyq i a
seer to perceive Miami a large oity an agricultural kingdom at her baok a steraahip ,
lines north and south a canal across the State from Atlantio to the Gulf; a rai*oad
aorors the Glades. These things will all come. .

On the Glade land, with a little intelligence and application, a man may get
larger returns on less capital than in any business that I know of anywhere. A truck
farm or a grove hand le ooopetently will net a man a splendid inoose, and i this..
seotion, as far as possibilities go, the surface has not yet ovea bhen hatched. "

Tours truly,

Ir. Thomas C. Till,
1211 Pennsylvania Avenue, N.V.,

Washington, D. C.
Dear Sir:--
Your favor of the 18th instant received
and contents noted.
We will reply to your inquiries in order:-

1. We understand that it is pro-
posed to have preferred stock
which stock is to receive eight
per oentum (8%) cumulative divi-
dends. In other words, cumulative
means that if eight per oentua (8O)
is not earned and paid this year,
the future earnings must apply to
Sthe preferred took until eight
per oentum (86) has been paid for
the year. That is if you earn
six per centua (81) the first year
and pay six per centum (6%), there
would be an aqorued charge of two
per oentum (3%) on nest year's
earnings, and you would have to
pay ten per centum (10%) to the
Preferred Stockholders before any
money would be applied to any divi-
dends of the cormoon stock. The
Superior Court in this State held















No. 2---Mr. Thomas C. Will.



in the case of Brooks et al, that
under Section 13, the power to
vote could be restricted to the
common stock if suitable provision
was made in the Charter and By-Laws.
It is customary to state among other
things that the preferred stock shall
have no voting power, suob power being
exclusively in the common stock

a. The statute provides that for every
two shares of preferred stock issued,
one share must be issued of oosmon
stock. Stock can be issued for prop-
erty, leases, real estate, servioee,
cash or any other commodities that
have a cash selling value. The statute
does not recognize any difference in
the stock issued for property or cash.
Preferred ard common stock oan be
issued for cash or for property. In
other words, you oould authorize the
entire issue of stock of $100,000,
common and preferred, for the property
if in the judgment of the Board of
Directors the property was of the
value stated, and there was no fraud
in the transaction.

3. It is customary to adopt a resolution
by the Board of Directors, placing a
value upon the property and to authorize
stock to be issued for same. If there
is no fraud in the valuation the stock
so issued has been held to be full paid
stock. It is customary to have the
Vendor make an order in writing,
authorizing the thousand dollars sub-
soribed for by the Inoorporators to be















No, 3---Mr. Thomas C. Will.



issued to then from his holdings.
It is also customary to have an
agreement with the Vendor whereby
he offers to place in the hands of
a Trustee, a certain amount of the
stock received by his, such stock
to be sold for development purposes,
the proceeds to be turned over to
the company.

4. There is nothing in the Delaware
Statute to present a voting trust,
whereby all the common stock would
be placed in the hands of a Trustee
to be held according to the texms
of the trust. This is a matter that
would have to be drafted under very
careful legal aubervision.

7 5. We believe the methods sgested as
to the control of the common stock,
is one that should be satisfactory.
As stated all such agreements and
voting trnrtf aset-bn prepared under
careful legal supervision.
6. We know of no way of changing the
manner of issuing stock for property
except as outlined in the first part
of this letter. The fact that you
pay a smaller sum than the amount of
stook issued for the Troperty, need
not necessarily mean that there ia
fraud in the transaotton, as the
property may be of more value follow-
ing proper development.


As requested, we have drafted a new fourth















No. 4---Mr. Thomas C. Til1.



section, covering the common and referred took,
which is to be substituted for the one in the charter

heretofore sent you.
You mast opWlete this fourth section by in-
serting the par value of the shares, as we do not have

this information. The stock, of course, subscribed in
the charter, will be common stock.
If we are to supply the Incorporators we must

subscribe for sufficient stock to enable us to transfer
three shares to each person who is to be elected a
Director, who la not a Incorporator.
Trusting the above will be saitsfaotory, we
are


Very truly yours,

Dear Sir:-

Your favor of the 20th instant received,

and we will endeavor to answer your further inquiries

in order:-

As stated heretofore, the statute does not

recognize any difference in stock whether issued for

cash, property, oontracts, leases, services or cther

valuable consideration. It is requiretithat whatever

is taken over for an issue of stock must be at a fair

valuation and by resolution of the Board of Directors.

Suoh valuation, as stated heretofore, in the absence

of fraud, should be final and oonolusive. A great

many companies organized here have issued stock for

services rendered. Services, of course are intangible

and it is sometimes difficult to determine the value

of such services. As far as we know our Oourts
here have not acted upon the question of issuing stock
for services, as we do not know of a oase being brought
before the courts.
We know of a number of oases where companies

have been organized and the common stock issued for

property, services, etc. As stated, the services must
have been rendered ,and a proper valuation placed upon
them by the Board of Directors.
The courts have passed upon the question of

restricting the voting rights to the common stock in
the case of George Brooks et al. The court held in
the opinion quoted above that they knew of no statute
to prevent a provision being inserted in the charter
restricting the voting power to the common stock.
The section given in the charter which we prepared for
you contains the exact language of the court.
te are not familiar with the Bonds issued by

the company, which you quote, but assume that they are

very auch like the INTEYRATIONAL LIMBER AND DEVFLOP-
MENT COMPANY, CAMPECHE LUMBER AND DEVFLOPMr'T COMPANY,
and others which we organized, and thrse selling stock
under contract and the installment plan. We do not
have copies of the form of contract of either of the
above companies.
From our experience, we think it much better

to have a straight sale of stock if possible, and
eliminate oontraots.
Trusting this additional information will

enable you to complete the matter, we are

in a body with the holdings of the Florida .verFlades Land Coumany

South of Lake Okeechobee. The task of preparing lIteralfre for the

sale of these lands falls on me and if convenient would be pleoaod to

have you write me a letter setting forth your improessirn and apprecin-

tion of these lands since the present stage of dovelopemont has boon

reached. If you address me personally in this matter, please a2eo my .4

address road Kansas City, Missouri, as I will be located there as -oon

as my literature is prepared.

Thanking you in anticipation of your reply, I bor to ronnin
