Governor John W. Martin, 1925.
During this period of neglect looks los. 2 and 3. made of wood,
bat indispensable for the maintenance of a water level adequate
even for 18-linh boats, were burned. This burning seemed to be
of incendiary origin. nevertheless, despite the pleadings and
efforts of settlers and others interested in the continuanoe of
navigation and Xverglades settlement and development. no rove
asu oe to t rd replanloa these looks. Reference to the of-
fiealo reports of 1935-7-26 and 1997-1928 w1 show thp$ thebe

Again. because of this abandonent the water hyacinth filled the
oanal. This post spread from bank to bank, sank even to the
bottom of the canal and towered above the water level. and o-
tended for any allies. No serious official effort was ever
made to abate this nuisance.
As a result of destruction of the sole navigation for the Upper
Iverglades settlements, these settlements perished and largely
vanished. Beginning with the first Okeelanta October 24,
1913, these had extended from the Lake down the canal to the
Sight-Mile Bead; and, east aal vest along the oross-canal, from
the Miami to the Hillaboro canal. Scattered home sites also
were found in this region. Today almost all of this territory
has reverted, largely or wholly, to its original Jungle state;
and, from time to tise, is swept by wild fires which have now
destroyed almot every vestige of the former budlng oitvlisa-
25 19 rergladea Bgtinering Board of Beviews bvidaImly Colonel Lawrenoe
ne et q4ite understand the quest e. set a aspeakilg of mnaer
board. The above "evies Boardl was appointed by Governor John
V. Martin in 1927 and consisted of three eaginoaer namely, eorge
B. Bills. of Jacksaonville, Pla.; i lerory, of Washington.
D. C.. adf (tIl/ Maraton, of Iow. These gentleman had but 4
days in which to solve eighty problem. Naturally, they were
obliged to follow leader. These were at hand. Their re*.
port i admirably arranged, and contains much of value. How-
ever, it is also ruined by the presence of 'ra poison. The
one item back of the question put Colonel Lawrence was, evi-
dently, the destruation of navigation on the three diagonal
Everglades canals: Hillsboro, North New River, and Miami.
Bach of these was to be blocked, solid and permanently, with
dam of earth and rook which, as stated (page 7) would perms-
nently destroy all through svigation on these canals.
The carrying out of this recommendation would have made permanent
the disaster already inflicted by the policies above described.
However, at the hearings of representatives of Port Everglades,
unitions Building, May 1 and 2, 1928, all of this was negative.
Mr. George Hills, who had served on the above Revlew Board,
reported receipt of a telegram from Mr. Fred C. Elliot, Chief
Drainage Engineer, Bverglades Drainage District, stating that
a contract had been let by the Board of Commissioners of Ever-
glades Drainage District providing for the completion of the
North Sew River Canal within 36 months.
Mr. Hills further explained that the report of the Review Board ,
though received and accepted, bad never been ADOPTED by the
Bsad Board of Drainage Comaissioners. further, Mr. Hills
stated that he did not believe the report would ever be adopted;
for the Drdmage Board realized the need for navigation of Ever-
He further explained wya recommendation/ astounding could have
been made 1y the Review Board. As Engineer Arthur 3. Morgan
pointed out in his report, this Review Board had been seriously
limited In its efforts by an oral instruction from Governor Martiln
requiring thea to confine their activities to consideration of
questions of drainage only.
Again, Mr. rills,as reference to report of said hearings will show,
emphasized strongly the strategic position held by the North
Canal asong other Everglades waterways; it ii the midrib of the
Mf Line Everglades and directly connects Lake Okeeohobee with Port Ever-
glades: the important, 35-foot harbor. It also aids in bring-
ing traffic by a short route from the Lake to Miami.
Again, Mr. Hillcommento, rightly,upon the fact that boat men would
hesitat nvigating the dangerous lake and the St. Lucia Canal
which so easily and frequently largely fills with sand.
The daoming of the diagonal canals, as recommended by the report of
the Review Board Mr. Hills having been a member is .fop4 on
pages 78. 79 and 83 and in Figure 8.

North Canal navigation is restored.

to Okeechobee City, north of Lake Okeeohobee, and went out on
the branch of the 7. E. C. Railway terminating there. Some
years after the Miani "HeralAd" published a write-up of that
industry and showed that it had attained million-dollar pro-
portions. The inferior condition of the canal, even at that
early date, discouraged them from continuing to use it with no
improvements in sight.
35 16 "North-state" should be coroes-state". Now that representatives
of Florida os to Congress for help in establishing a cross-
state waterway to Lake Okesohobee, via the St. Lucie River and
Caloosahat)oee, it should be remebefed that such a cross-state
waterway actually existed as early as 1913-14; and would un-
questionably have been continued and used in vastly greater
measure but for the policy of destruction.
'90 per cent" should be '99 per cent." It should be understood
that almost the only part of the Xverglades which now receives
any attention and in which, alone,people can live and thrive,
is a petty strip around the shore of Lake Okeeohobee. This
area was made fit in two ayst: iret, nature caused that area
to be slightly higher than the remainder of the vSergladeas
bhea a large tpee rsels t emla Leve lopea trepeUve of
ay work of mans second, The War Department sternly forbade
the destruction of naviation on ake OWseabobe. Having thus
a measure both of reolamation and transportation, settlers
could establish themselves on the Lake shore. This they did.
Their snooess attracted attention. Then larger people came,
bringing capital and modern methods. hoese people were able
to extort financial aid from unwilling counties, with their
county seats on the ooast, and largely unwilling to permit tax
funds to be used any where else than in their neighborhoods.
These tax funds aided materially in improving the lake shore.
Practically all of these things, the Everglades Proper about 99
per cent of the whole area lacked and still lacks. Settlers had
almost no reclamation, unless they created it themselves, while
paying others for reclamation never delivered.
For most of the region roads were utterly unavailable. Some of
these were actually bought and paid for, bat not delivered.
Thie threw the settlers bask, absolutely, upon their boats which
at first were allowed, under difficulties, to traverse the ver-
glade Camal. hen this one mods of transportation was destroyed
thea, as show, the Everglades settlements disappeared, and the
region reverted to wilderaeas.
Qpeation are rasied as to tonnages on these oanale. It would be
as appropriate to ask for tonnage from the war-ewept villages of
or Man' rLand in 1918. that ill-fated area, however, found
friends and has been restored. Ie sauh good fortune has ever
yet visited the Everglades Proper, the 99-per cent of an area
Pa Un as large as two states of the Union; and, after earnest suppli-

phatic condition which she had already agreed to met that

86 1 to 6. To restate as early a 1916 we had proved the possibility of suc-
cessfully producing 60 and more desirable products. In 1990
the writer had growing 4f acres of fine potatoes, S2 aores of
dasheens (with which the AgrSicltural Departmnt is familiar)
and 40 aores of good oor. Then another calamity overtook as
and practically ended our career. The State hagineer desired
to transfer a dredge from a point west of Lake Okeechobee to
Jacksonville. Instead of sending it around the south end of the
State, over a route which since 1924 navigation has had to follow,
he chose instead to send it down the North Canal. To get suf-
ficient water for his dredge he opened up the lock at the lake
end and almost filled the canal with water. The dredge crept
slowly down to a point below Oklelanta, where it stuck, and re-
mined immovable for some weeks. Meanwhile the excessively
high level of water in the canal was maintained; nominally to
protect the dredge.
Then came one of the great florida downpours of rain. The canal
was soon overflowing aad fish were ewiamng in the streets of
Okeelanta. Since then our settlement bas been little more than
36 28 Bean production is aggressively poshed on the lake shore. With
conditions fairly good beans grow In enormous quantities and
are of excellent quality, and daring a portion of the season at
least they sell wall.
For the Everglades Proper however the 99 per cant been growing
would look petty. What has already been done in the matter
of raising sugar cane in which the writer participated as
early as 1918 and has been proved out, in other lines of staple
Pget. ine crop production, first by the pioneers, and later gby the multi-
millionaire Brown Company. proves the Everglades Proper to be
in possibility a region of almost undreamed of productivity.And
it is to such lines of activity that Everglade people will
promptly address themselves hen once the hand of the destroyer
has been stayed, and Plorida's contract with the Government
properly carried out.
37 1 President Boosevelt's Comsision on aterways discovered, and their
Secretary stated to the writer orally, that the waterways of the
United States had been deliberately and systematically destroyed
by the railroads; the object, of course, being to end water com-
tiuch can be ahown to prove that Everglade waterways have been de-
stroyed for the same reason. It is noteworthy that in 1921,
when the Atlantic Coastline Railway was pushing its line from
Sabring to Clewiston, the overt acts against the continuation
of North Canal navigation began. It is also of interest that,
at about the same time, representatives of the new railway termi-
nas came to Tort Lauderdale docks where North Canal traffic as
being handled and begged the buyers to desert Lauderdale and in-
stead to adopt Clewiston as their buying headquarters. Two of
these buyers related this circumstance directly to the writer;
one of tiho accepted the invitation, while the other declined it.
Soon after that the Florida last Coast Bailroad pushed its Okee-
chobee tine on to Slle Glade and thence on to South Bay and
These railroads were out for business and whatever business went
down the North Canal andt at Port Evergladeswitched to ocean-
going vessels would, of course, be irretrievably lost to these
As it is, not a pound of that traffic now ever comes down from the
lake country except by truck, by way of West Palm Beach or Lake
forth and south.
pata Line Further the St. Lucie country is also a very important railroad
proposition. In boom days the Seaboard Railroad extended
its line from Ooleman,via Okeechobee Oity and Indiantown to
West Palm Beach; and then on to Miasi.
A subsidiary of the Seaboard Railroad also bought a very large
tract of land lying on either side of the St. Lucia Oanal.
The whole program now, evidently, is first to force all naviga-
tlon from Larc Okelchobee to the Atlantic through this St.
oasle Canal and Seaboard Bailroad land. Next the plan
provides for the improvement oftthe canal and also forh)e i
multitudinous inlets, on both the north and south side of
the St. Lucia, which pour into that oanal, in the rainy
season, vast quantities both of water and of sand. It is
proposed to spend $25,000 in improving the St. Lucie River,
and $175,000 in improving,by paving, these inlets, some made
by man, but most,by nature.
The general effect of this will be:
1. For the land-To furnish it a high degree of reclamation
while refusing the same to almost all of the Everglades
2. For the canal To make it the one connection, as noted,
between Lake Okeechobee and the ocean.
Next it might be expected that boats representing these great
interests would be run,that widespread advertising would Jam
these boats with wealthy visitors from the north; and that
high-powered land agents, on the boats, would proceed to asll
the railroad's land.
Meanwhile the Zverglades, which Florida is bound to reolala but
neglects,. would be aloabt completely hidden frea vlew by all
these travelers through the cross-state waterway. At the
same time the fires which hnve already consumed untold mil-
lions of dollars worth of Everglades soil $65,000,000 worth
in one season,by estimate of Professor Pamell. of Iowa -
could continue their work unhindered and unadvertised. In
1928. a member of the present State Board of Drainage Commis-
ioners, stated publicly that, in his Judgment, one-quarter of
the whole area of bverglades lands has been destroyed by fire.
This year reports from that region declare that the fires have
been more destructive than in any other date in history. All
of which suggests that in a comparatively short tiue,under
present policies of neglect and hostility, the Everglades dme
will have become praotially thiag of the past.

DELIVERY OF A TRACTS
If DEFIA[IO E -IFSRiOTIRUTIONS;
Following are data showing ho'. abstract company inquired,of customer,hbw abstracts should
be delobered,and then violated these instructions.
On 8 eotasions,the company inquired,as on P.26," Where you wish same sent?" ( Note
pp.26,41,51,57?, 8,59 ,62,63).
On 7 occasions,the customer stated,as on P.27,that these should be delivered to the First
National Bank,in Ft*Lauderdale,Fla.( Note pp.27,42,46,52o,60,61,64a);
On 2 occasions( pp*45,56a),oustomer w;s told abstracts were in Express Officejt- ,'>f': '
On p.46 customer stressed importance of sendin- to %ank;ond,on p.47,stressed complications
from not doing so. On p.61,he showed r Lesu- confusion;on 64aand 70f,he further empha-
sized importance of having them sents per instrucions,an.i troubles resulting from fail-
ure to do so. But none of these things moved" the A.T.G.Co* It sent\the abstracts,in
packages,C.O.B.,to the Express Office.
This mode of delivery was objectionable for the followingreasons:--
1--Customer could not tell,till he had paid,in full,for pkge.and taken it away// whether
the right abstracts had been sent. Example of contrary--Sea'27-44-36,never ordered,but sent,
ordered paid for," sight-unseen",and it was paid forp bill,d50.00 Was told this sum would
be refunded,but it has never been refunded,and the ATG CO. now ignores it.( Pp'41,86E,
2--Customer could not tell,till too late,whetheR abstract had been prepared according to
instructions.( Examples of cpntrary,cases of Rose and New Okeelanta;all far from compliance
3--Whether gn order that had been cancelled had,instead,been filled. ( Case,Fitzpatrick:
Cust',mer protested,but in vain(Pp.48,47,61,64,70f).

104 7-2-26 Secy*Shirley replied.( Letter signed by ATG.Coo,by i.rir.Patton.)
1Why New Okeelanta -bstracts were held back:--
Following the order for New Okeelanta Abstratts( by 2 letters) every mention of N.Ok.
abstracts called for D E L A Y. Not one order was given to hurry these.
-=ter tracts required RUSHING. -Oustomers were URGENT. Abstracts were very hard
to get,and we had continually to explain to customer s why delay continued.( See corres.)
