SYNOPSIS OF ACTS OF THE UNITED STATES AND THE STATE OF FLORIDA

AFFECTING LAND IN CAPTION.

"The Floridas" were acquired by the United States in 1821,
under treaty with Spain and all the vacant and public lands became
the property of the United States, (Federal Statutes, Annotated,
Vol. 7, page 810.)

Florida was admitted into the Union, by act of Congress
approved March 3, 1845, the United States reserving the public
lands therein, exempt from taxation while remaining the property
of the United States. (United States Statutes at Large, Vol. 5,
page 742).

Lands shown to have been conveyed by the trustees of the
Internal Improvement Fund of the State of Florida, were selected
by said state under and by virtue of an act called the "Swamp Land
Act" of the United States Congress, approved September 28, 1850,
(U. S. Statutes at Large, Vol. 9, page 519), and when said
selections were approved, patents by the United States to he State
of Florida issued by virtue of said act.

The Commissioner of Agriculture of the State of Florida, is
designated by law as the official custodian of all patents of lands
by the United States to the said state.

There is no provision of law requiring that such patents be
recorded in the counties in which such patented land lies.

By act of the Legislature of the State of Florida, entitled
"An act to provide for and encourage a liberal system of internal
improvements of this state," approved January 6, 1855, the lands
acquired by the state under the "Swamp Land Act" of September 28,
1850, were vested in five trustees, known as the Trustees of the
Internal Improvement Fund of the State of Florida.
(Acts of 1855, Chapter 610, in General Statutes of Florida
1906, Sections 616, 617 and 620).

emptions under such rules and regulations as they may deem advis-

In the arguments and briefs filed by Complainant as grounds
of Jurisdiction of this Court was a-..-Dealed exceot the action of
the Trustees of the Int:-r-ial I -rovement Fund of the State of

In my judgment the case made by the Bill of Complaint under

TO and other valuable
considerations.
T. J. CHAMPION, H. J. CHAPMAN and
G. C. BA17TZ



It is hereby mutually agreed between the Florida Everglades
Land Company, the within applicant and other applicants as follows;

First. The lands offered by the Florida Everglades
Land Company border on the South shores of Lake Okeechobee extending
to the South and approximately alternating Sections and are situated
in the Counties of Dade and Lee, in the State of Florida, they com-
prise 64,240 acres, described as follows;

3,784 ten acre tracts; -1,000 twenty acre tracts; 50
forty acre tracts; 15 eighty acre tracts; 6 one hundred and sixty
acre tracts; 3 three hundred and twenty acre tracts and 2 six hundred
forty acres tracts, being 4,860 tracts in all.

Second. The Lots offered by the Company will be in a
Townsite or Townsites to be established by it on it's Everglades,
lands, containing 4,860 Lots, Residence Lots to be 50 x 135 feet;
business Lots 25 x 135 feet. The townsite will be located at what
seems to be the most advantageous and reservations will be made for
streets, church and schools.

Third. The uniform price at which each Lot an accompany-
ing lot together containing one unit is sold by the Company for
$240.00 regardless of size or location.

Fourth. The within accepted application to purchase
one tract and one lot means that when the applicant has completed
his payments he will become the sole owner of a corresponding un-
divided interest in the land and townsite lots offered for sale as
above set forth, And that for himself and all persons claiming through
him he consents to the election of trustees as hereinafter provided.

Fifth* Each applicant when he makes his first payment
and executes the within contract will receive from the Company a
receipt showing thatvhere he has completed his payments the company

Sixth. Those of the clearance receipts holders who
shall assemble in person or by representative at the opening shall
elect, from their numbers in such manner as those assembled shall
decide by majority vote of the clearance receipts held or represented
by them, three Trustees to whom the Company will convey the lands
and lots above offered, in TRUST to take and hold the same for the
*benefit of all holders of clearance receipts to cause the same to be
forthwith sold at Auction as hereinafter provided. And thereupon to
deed to each successful bidder the tract or lot sold to him. The
Company will convey to the Trustees by Warranty Deed, a clear title
subject only to rights of damage or reclamation purposes reserved by
the Trustees of the Internal Improvement Fund of the State of Florida
in their Deed dated December 15, 1908, And to rights-of-way for
canals, ditches and roads. The deed from the Trustees will contain
the same reservations.

Trustees and they -shall appoint an Auctioneer who shall proceed to
auction the tracts and lots at an upset price of $240.00 for each
unit. And shall sell the same to the highest bidder for cash, only
clearance receipt holders, or their representatives will be allowed to
bid. They may buy one unit for each clearance receipt they hold. The
bidding will be open and competitive and no lottery game or scheme
of distribution by lot or chance will enter into it. Any profits
realized at the auction sale in excess of the clearance receipts shall
be equally and rately divided among the clearance receipt holders,
one tract and one lot to each clearance receipt.

Seventy. Free round trip transportation for the opening
from mobilizing points in any state will be furnished by the Company
to the credited representatives of twenty or more clearance receipt
holders in any one County of that State.

Eighth. Any failure on the part of applicant to make
payments as stipulated in his application thereby forfeits his rights
and interests in said contract and all money paid thereon.

Ninth. Date of opening and auctioning of tracts and lots
will be announced thirty days in advance.

And whereas, the parties of the second part at an election
duly held as provided in each of said contracts, on the 8th day of
April 1912, were duly and legally elected as Trustees for the use
and purpose set forth in each of said contracts as hereinabove recited.
And thereafter duly and severally accepted said election and the trusts
thereby imposed and herein declared as if further evidenced by the
respective signatures hereto.

Now, therefore, the Company the party of the first part in
and for the consideration of the sum of $1.00 to it in hand paid by
the Trustees, parties of the second part and other valuable consideration

regard of it's said contract has given, granted bargained, sold,

said premises and every part thereof unto the said parties of and its
successors and all and every other person or persons claiming under or
through it, will warrant and forever defend.

survivor and for the use and benefit of the holders of clearance
receipts, as setforth in said contracts; and also pursuant to reso-
lution duly moved, seconded and adopted by unanimous vote of those
