Together to offer these for a single, unbroken, well-located tract,

owned by some large holder. If necessary, they .would take consider-

ably less acreage in return,for the sake of being tog-ther.

On the other hand, in addition, they would obligate themselves

to go in person or send a representative to the colony within a

specified time following the reclamation of the land.

Here, they felt, would be fohnd'.a powerful inducement to

the large landowners to make the exchange. Do not towns and

cities everywhere offer inducements for development projects? Are

not governments exerting themselves to secure groups of capable

settlers who 'V "1 develop the' country, increase the'taxable pro-

.perty, and make the desert blossom?

Filled with enthusiasm over the new projectt, a- group of

Washingtonians started for West- Palm Peach;Florida in April, 1912,

to participate in the auction-of the Florida Everglades land tract.

They talked their exchange -proposition all the way to Florida and

a good part of the time whilee there.

The writer 'presented'ji tt the convention at West Palm Beach

and the auctioneer, an old seasoned land man, declared it was the

greatest'scheme he had ever heard of and predicted that the land

companies would fall over each other bidding fdr the Washington

ccl ny. ..

7Well, the land companies had the chance. The writer presented -V--

it to the leading officers of three or four of'them but without

avail. They'either could not or would not make the trade. Tost

of them evidently shi.ed at the 'thought of the scattered land.

Then th 'writer betook'himself to Tallahassee to lay the pro-

position before the Internal Iinprovement Board, including the

Governor.

He thought that here, at least, he should find attentive ears

and sympathetic auditors.

Is not Florida long on land and short on people? What greater

asset could the State expect to receive, without cost, than a bbdy

of wide-awake, intelligent, aggressive, high-grade people, from the

National Capital, who had already shown their faith in the maligned

Ev--rglades by putting their own good money into these lands, and

who now said to the State, 4ke it possible for us to go upon these

lands, settle and develop them, and aid in building your State?

Here surely would be found people who, with vast tracts of

unoccupied and practically unbroken land, would jump at the chance

of exchanging a little of this for a larger area of scattered

lands and so enabling a colony to establish itself, as soon as the

land was ready, in the Everglades and proceed to prove to the

world the magnificent possibilities of- this sub-tropical wonderland.

But here, again, the would-be colonists were doomed to dis-

appointment. Though their claims were presented, both orally and

in writing, with the utmost power at the command of their represen-

tative, the State turned then down. It, too, shied at the scatter-
'I
ed land, and declared that such an exchange would be against its
if
interests, since it was trying to consolidate its iwn holdings.

The situation looked hard, yet the writer did not give up.

After painful and protracted negotiations, he purchased from the

Internal Improvement Board a half section of land as the beginning

of the site of this colony.

This land, as will be shown below, was splendidly located, on

a canal, by. a town-site and lake. In quality and elevation it was

unsurpassed. 'ut that the colonists might obtain it it was necessary

that they should buy it.

To some, this appeared hard, for they had' already bought them-

selves land poor. However, on being called together and shown the

map and the opportunity they snapped up the offer like so many hungry

S chickens picking up corn.

By the close of the first meeting, one-third of the tract was

taken; and, within a fortnight or thereabout, practically eighty per

cent of it had been purchased.

Every one of these buyers had already bought Everglade land,

some in areas equally. rom a hundred to almost two hundred acres.

Yet, they said, an opportunity like this nust not be permitted to

escape them.

Further, per cent of this acreage was paid for in

full, cash down.

With the money in his pocket the writer now went, posthaste,

to Tallahassee; and, almost three weeks before his first payment

was due, and nine months before his last payment was due, he paid

the State in full for the entire tract.

To the State officers, thiswas interesting. They were familiar

with the experience of having large buyers ask for more time, but to

have a full payment rushed in upon them, months ahead of time,was

out of the ordinary.

The upshot of this was that the writer was enabled to obtain

still more land, an additional half section, rounding out the half

section already purchased, together with the opportunity to secure a

considerably larger tract.

He next betook himself to the land to examine it again in person.

Turn to the map and examine it with him.

It is Section 35 in Township. 44; South, Range 36 East, in Palm

Beach County.

It lies directly athwart the North New River Canal and adjoining

the town of Okeelanta. .

Its north border is three and one-fifth miles south of Lake Okee-

chobee. Boats from Lauderdale to Ft. Myers pass directly through it

Its elevation is among the highest in the Everglades--nearly

twenty-one feet above sea-level.

Here, at times, the water flows not simply toward the Atlantic

but towards the Lake.; it therefore enjoys double drainage and must

be one of the first tracts reclaimed by the State's drainage operation m

From the standpoint of transportation, the position of this tract

is one of the most strategic possible. Note the following:

may likewise be reached.

for myself. So Impressed was I with what I saw, and with what people
who are living upon this land and working it told me of their in-
comes from it, that I straightway bought 100 acres of it.

On my return to Washington, my fellow employee in the Inter-
state Commerce Commission had such confidence in my honesty and good
judgment that they bought over 1500 acres on my report. I resigned
frok the I. 0. C. in December last to sell Everglades lands. Today,

To succeed, we must concentrate our scattered holdings.
Instead of being isolated, rural dwellers, remote from eaohother,
peaete from transportation facilities, post office, stores, schools,
churches, and all the other advantages, economic and social, of
modern, civilized life, we must be dwellers in a village community
with farming lands near by.

After long-continued efforts and multiplied discouragements,
the problem has at last been solved. The lands shown on the map
have been secured and made available. T2kyxMaMNxkm A consider-
able area has already been resold.

When the first half section (the North Half of $Action 35,
Township 44, South, Range 36 East), was presented to the Florida
Everglades liomebuilders' Association, at Washington, D. C., most
of it was snapped uo with avidi Ly. Fore has since been secured,
and is herewith offered.

Following are the advantage possessedd by these lands:

1. OIL:;i Ten feet aqd more in depth, thoroughly decomposed,
and'bearing a crop of saw. grass the height and density of which
incontestAbly proves this to be the very cream of the Everglades.

2. FrQROT PRIOT':CToIN:i As many have learned to their sorrow
and cost, frosts do visit considerable portions of the :verglades,
menacing'the growth of winter vegetables. Ab Is -also well known,
the presence of a large body of water to the north and northwest
constitutes a highly important protective' barrier against frost.
Okeelanta is but.two and one fifth miles from ..Lake Okeeohobee,
and on exactly the right side of t1he- ake, to secure the most
effective and complete protection against this besom of destruction,

3. RECLAMAT ION: An elevation among the highest in the
Everglades. The .figures on the State-map show Okeelanta to be
twenty-one feet above sea-level.. Sections 35 aind 27 have nearly
or quite the, same elevation. Acting Chief Engineer Elliott, of
the State Internal Improvement Board,. states that, at times,
the water from these lands flows not only toward the Atlantico:
but into Lake i,kee.cnobee. 'They, therefore, enjoy double dratn-
age and must, of neoeasity, be among the first and moot easily
reclaimed by the State's drainage operations,

4. .A3SOCIATI' J: Oppurtunity for community life. One factor,
vital to the success of the settlement and- develop:;.ent of the Ever-
glades, has received scant attention, or has been wholly overlooked.
It is that of community life pnd associated activity. Forgetful
that, for their mutual.protection and ad, even the birds of the
forests, and .the b.easts of the fields, go in flocks and herds,
those responsible for the sale of Everglades lands have treated
future settlers as hermits. Like autumn leav'ds:'before a gale,
they ]ive scatteredd them indiscriminately from the Lake almost
to the back yardiof Miami; and left them, isolated,'forlorn
and pathetic, like so many Robinson Crusoets to work out their
own individual salvation as best they might.

5. TRANSPORTATIK:N: One of the most strategic of all
possible positions in the Everglades from the standpoint of
transportation. 'iote the following:

a. A passenger and freight boat line, making regular,
b-weekly trips frcm Ft. Layderdale, via Rita, to Ft. Lyers
L,4.?turn, is now plying on the North INew River Canal ti,,I4k
Okeelanta and Okeelanta Addition.

b. Through the Miami and ifillsborough canals, respect-
ively, each soon to be opened, 'iami and Ilillsborough and ad-
jacent points may be readily reached from-Okeelanta, by boat.

c. Through the Palm Beach Canal, Palm Beach and
neighboring points may also be reached.

d. Ur. Henry L. Flagler is ratidl:' pushing his iay-
tow'h-Lake Okeechobee Railrfld. '.'hen this has been completed,
Okeelanta products miay be shipped by water north across the
Lake and '.hence by rail, through Jacksonville, to northern
ports.

e. 'hroulgh Lake ukeechobee and the Galoosahatchee,
Ft. !.pers and Gulf ports may also be reached. From Ft. Myers,
products may be sent over the Atlantic Coast Line flrn gk to
Jacksonville and northern points,tiaus securing competition
with the Florida iEast Coast Railrond. Further, on the com-
pletion of o. few more li~K neuir Tallahassee and to the south,
in the Atlantic Coast Line Railway, now under construction,
or proposed, Ok-elanta products may be sent direct,parallel
with the Gulf Coast, into the ississaippi valley, to St. Louis,
Chicago and westernn points.

There will soon be "something doing" at Okeelanta.
The South New River Canal has recently been opened. The Miami
and Hillsborough canals will soon be opened also. In consequence,
the Lake level should materially fall, and the high land at or
near Okeelanta should be dry. We can then push our development
work. Buyers near Okeelanta are ready to settle and begin cul-
tivation as soon as the land is ready. The canal banks are
ready now.

The incoming of population to Okeelanta will material
increase the value of lands in that vicinity.

1. On canal, boats running now.

2. By town-site in which all lots are taken.

3. In a settled community where a body of the

most intelligent, wide-awake, aggressive people in the

country are to begin together next fall and establish a

"Little Washington".

4. On one of the highest points in Everglades

(about 21 feet), hence protected against water.

5. On deepest soil in Everglades, ten feet

and more.

6. Best decomposed soil, requiring no fertil-

izer.

7. Protected by lake against frost (only

three and a quarter miles from lake).

8. Ready for cultivation now (similar land

farmed last year).

9. Bargain price: less than half the price

at which similar lands are selling.

10. Going fast: even land sellers snapping

for myself. So impressed wad I with what I saw, and with what people
who are living upon this land and working it told me of their in-
comes from it, that I straightway bought 100 acres of it. .

On my return to Washingtoh, my fellow employes in the Inter-
state Oommeroe Commission had such confidence in my honesty and good
judgment that they bought over 1500 acres on my report. I resigned
from the I. C. C. in December last to sell Everglades lands. Today,

Can nothing done? Cer-
Stainly. For one thing, the State
might collect on its contracts, or
foreclose.
For another, it might bor W
on its Everglades lands.
This money can be used. It
should be, and without a day's
delay, and the work of reclama-
tion should be pushed as was the
rebuilding of the walls of Jeru-
salem.
The State will soot'have ex-
pert. outside advice as to the
exact amount of additional canal-
ization necessary for the perfect
control of the Lake. This fact
ascertained, it should dig these
canals.
SIf it works through private:
-ompanies, -it should not-..stopl
--....w oni .ouldg o enough
to.put the work. through..on th
double6 quick.
A'time limit should be fixed -
say one year at most. Then each'
company should be ass"'d its
iob and held rigidly to its coE-
,ract.
SBy thedate named, the.-dtcq
Ing, large and small, should be
bone, the land completely, re-
claimed, and the settlers invited
!n.
Buyers of Everglade land, a
multitude in number, have now
waited three years or more, and
are waiting still.
Their money has gone into the
drainage work and into the pro-
fits of land companies. The days
of their waiting should be num-
bered. .
Hope" deferred makethi the
heart .sick. Hope should soon
give place to fruition.
It boots nothing to say that
land agents have, without auth-
ority, promised an early comple-
tion of he work. Had prospec-
tive bf ers been told that they
must wait three years, four years,
six years for their lahd, they
would not have .bought.
Had they refused to buy, the
State would have had zo -money
with which to drain.
Had State drainage failed tfiej

pensable. They lack a rational,'*

Most buyers imagine they atre
waiting for the completion oft
drainage. When drainage has'
been completed many will find
themselves still waiting. Many
of them. have been sold their
Jands on a plan which, instead of
'acilitating, virtually, for year
to come, defeats settlement an
development.
These buyers should have bee'
grouped into village cmomuniti.
on the canals, with their farming
land adjacent: Instead, the
have been scattered like atum
leaves before a gale, and are lef
stranded, remote from each other,
from towns and from canals.
Where, with drainage complete

prosperous community they will
find themselves so iaiy Robin-
son Crusoes, isolated, helpless,

Picture their situation. Imag-
ine a man tramping.-five or six
miles, with wife, children andl
household goods and gods,
through towering saw grass,
dense as a tropical jungle, to es-
tablish a home in an uninhabited,
Strackless wilderness!
To do so would be to court de-
feat and disaster. Yet thousands
of acres of Florida Everglades
lands have been sold upon a plan
which contemplates and necessit-
'ates exactly this, or the abandon-
ment by buyers of their lands.
The mischief thus already
wrought is incalqilable. Not
another acre should be sold on
this principle.
