The Riches of Our Back Country
By E. G. SEWELL, President Miami Chamber of Commerce
T IS doubtful if any section of the United States has the many varieties of rich soil and the wonder-
ful climatic conditions which Dade County and southeastern Florida possesses.
The development of this great area has hardly begun, but as drainage is perfected and trans-
portation facilities are provided this great empire of rich soil will be made to produce millions of dollars
worth of citrus fruits, winter vegetables, tropical fruits, sugar cane and other necessities of life.
We are also fast becoming a stock raising section which business is being promoted through our
93 dairies using over 5,000 acres of land in Dade county and representing an investment of more than
Varieties of soil. We first have the pine land which is adapted to the culture of citrus fruits,
including grapefruit, oranges, limes and lemons. This land is also adapted to the culture of many
tropical fruits including, avocados, mulgoba and other fine varieties of mangoes, tammerines, sugar
apples, coconuts, sappodillas, custard apples, Japanese persimmons, rose apples, loquats, carissa, sour-
sop, Surinam cherries, and many other delicious fruits.
This is the only section of the United States where the climatic conditions are mild enough to
allow these tropical fruits to grow. This section is especially adapted to grapefruit culture, which fruit
matures here much earlier than in up-state sections.
The king oranges and tangeloes are also grown most successfully in this section. The avocado
is. fast becoming one of the leading fruit crops as it is only in this section that they are fairly free
from cold temperatures, which they will not stand. The late Valencia varieties of oranges are also a
most profitable crop here and they bring fancy prices.
We also have the Marl Prairie Soil. This soil is adapted to the growth of winter vegetables, of
every kind, including tomatoes, egg plant, beans, peppers, squash, cabbage, spinach, cauliflower, also
strawberries, papaya, pineapples, guavas and many other vegetables.
Dade County has shipped more winter vegetables during the last fifteen years than any ten
counties in the State and in fact for many years shipped more than 60% of the tomatoes shipped by
the state of Florida. The shipments have run as high as six thousand carloads in a season, bringing
in something like six million dollars to the growers.The citrus returns range from two and one-half to
three million dollars.
The sandy soil is also used in the growing of winter vegetables and pineapples with the assis-
tance of commercial fertilizers.
We also have the hammock soil. This soil is very rich and with proper moisture will grow
most anything luxuriantly. This soil has accumulated from leaf mold where the timber is Florida oak,
maderia, gumbolimbo, palms, crabwood and other trees than pine.
We also have millions of acres of black Muck Soil. The great Everglade area is just now being
'drained and put into condition for cultivation. This soil is especially adapted to the growth of sugar
cane, forage grasses, winter vegetables, citrus fruits and tropical fruits.
With the completion of the main state drainage canals and with the completion of the lateral
canals which will give this section 'intensified drainage and general water control, this great area is
bound to become one of the most productive sections of the world.
The various special drainage districts are fast completing this great plan for making the Ever-
glades of Florida the sugar bowl of America.
TWL- Jf-- _
Page Four I FLC
Four of these big drainage canals empty into the
Inland canal and one directly into Biscayne Bay-all
leading to the port of Miami and affording water routes
for the products of this vast empire.
The great development of the Pennsylvania Sugar
Co., sixteen miles west of Miami in the Everglades, where
they have just started in operation one of the largest and
most complete sugar mills in the country is ample proof
of the possibilities of this great black soil prairie.
Every citizen in Florida is greatly indebted to the
state officials who have carried out this great drainage
plan, which, when completed will mean the expenditure
of at least 25 million dollars by the state and also the
expenditure of a like amount by the land owners, making
a total of fifty million dollars. However, this will mean
the reclamation of over four million acres of the world's
The state has now expended approximately fifteen
million dollars and certain sections of the Everglades are
now ready for cultivation. The special drainage district
adjacent to Miami, comprising about 200,000 acres is now
believed to be safe from overflow as per a statement
from Chief Drainage Engineer Elliott.
This area includes the Pennsylvania Sugar Company's
development west of Miami and this area should develop
very fast in the future.
The water control over this area has been brought
about by the building of levees and using canal banks
as such to keep the water from the upper western ever-
glades from overflowing this section. As a further safe-
guard they are now dredging additional canals north and
south of this area which will assure complete water con-
trol. The opening of sluiceways across the Tamniami Trail
has also assisted greatly in the control of the water dur-
ing the rainy season, and no trouble with high water
should be experienced in the Miami zone in the future.
The future is assured for this section on account of
its geographical location (being 500 miles south of Los
Angeles) together with the fact that we have water on
the east, south and west of us, which water includes the
warm Gulf Stream and accounts for our very mild tem-
peratures and in fact makes this the most tropical sec-
tion of the United States.
With varied soils and with the essentials of moisture
and heat which enable this section to grow winter vege-
tables and other valuable crops and fruits, when it is
hazardous to try to grow them in sections north of the
Miami zone, puts this section in a class by itself where
fancy prices are obtained for our products.
With the above conditions there is just one other
necessity and that is ample transportation facilities. This
section must have a real port, and I mean by this a port
which will accommodate ships of 25-ft. draft, as then the
coastwise ships will be able to make this a port of call,
which should give us ample service to carry the great
increase of farm products which is bound to come within
a year or two.
The improvement of the Miami Harbor will be advan-
tageous either in a direct or indirect way to every citizen
of this country.
If the State Road Department's plans are tarried out
this year, the Dixie Highway in Florida is going to be one
of the best advertised stretches of good road in the U. S.

Another Sugar Mill Planned
Another extensive sugar development is being planned
for this section. A company has been organized with a
large holding of Everglade or marl land near Homestead.
Some of this lies in territory in which drainage is not
yet complete and part of the plan calls for the creation of
a new drainage district, as about seventy-five per cent
of the land holders in this particular territory have joined
forces to obtain from the state the drainage powers.
The bank of the canal under the plan proposed will
be used for the highway to connect with the highway in
Monroe County, and the canal itself will be made deep
enough for light draft boats to use, making an outlet
by water for Homestead people.
The plan of the company is said to be to guarantee
settlers on their lands with a return from their crops,
among which will be sugar cane and it is planned to
erect a mill to care for this. Considerable of the capital
behind the project comes from northern men.

CHAMB.EI OF COMMERCE FLOAT
IAMI'S first New Year's Day Flower and Fruit
Pageant surpassed expectations in its size, its
gorgeousness, its floral and fruit versatility, and
in the immense throng which viewed it. The procession
of decorated autos and attractive trades floats extended
more than six miles and along the route of the parade
crowds were gathered, it being estimated that more than
100,000 people saw the exhibit, as the 60,000 regularly in
Miami and suburbs, were reinforced by at least 25,000
winter visitors, a large portion of the population of Dade
county, and numerous delegations from the cities and
counties to the north.
It was worth seeing and the Chamber of Commerce
officials who managed the affair expect to repeat it next
year on even a larger scale and to attract here several
more thousands a few weeks earlier to be on
hand for this exhibition, and they believe the
fame of. the pageant will draw additional
thousands from other portions of the state.
Travelers who have viewed similar spec-
tacles in other cities, notably the Rose Festi' ils
in Pasadena and Portland; the Mardi Gras
of New Orleans; the Veiled Prophets of St. 9W&
Louis; the Mummers of Philadelphia, and the
fetes which distinguish many old world and
oriental cities, declared the Miami pageant
compared in every respect most favorably with
these time old features. The movie news reels,
the rotogravue pictorial sections of the metro-
politan newspapers, the illustrated weeklies
and magazines all found the pictures of the
Miami event worthy considerable space.
The object of the display was three-fold;
to afford an entertainment that would attract
visitors to Miami before January first; to
snnouncq to the country in a different manner
the fact that on New Year's day this city was enjoying
mid-summer weather permitting an out-of-door pageant
entirely at variance with the usual weather associated
with this particular day; and further to demonstrate in a
striking manner the wealth of flowers and variety of fruits
that this tropical section produces in midwinter. All three
objectives were attained in full measure.
There were five divisions to the parade: Natural flow-
ers, Florida fruits, artificial flowers and decorations, civic
and fraternal organizations, and trades floats. The high-
est prize was awarded the natural flower division, $400
being given the winner of this division. First prize in
the other divisions was $300 and the added awards .were
the same, namely $200, $100, $75 and $50. The only ex-
ception was for the civic and fraternal entrants where

days which have followed. Every detail had
been carefully arranged, every division
knew where they were to assemble, every
captain and his corps of assistants were on
hand. Chief of Police Leslie Quigg, in com-
mand of the parade, had the traffic regu-
lations well in hand and the route of the
parade was well cleared. There were so
many entrants that the start of the pro-
cession was delayed about half an hour and
it was half after ten o'clock when the boom
of the starting bomb out in Riverside sec-
tion answered quickly by another in Bis-
cayne Bay told the watchers that the great
pageant was on the move.
Four motor cycle policemen led the line
and Chief Quigg, in a side car, followed
immediately after. In decorated autos in

ed by a quintet walking, each bearing in nat-
ural flowers the letters which spell the name

natural flowers and was the work of Superin-

The stately Chamber of Commerce float
was next in line, a huge affair extending sev-
eral feet at each end beyond the longest truck
in the city, which the Indiana truck company
supplied. This float depicted by means of
blocks the rapid growth in population of this
city. On the first block one read, "1896 popu-
lation 1,500." A Seminole indian doll perched

float was a representation of a grave in a
flower garden with a soldier standing at guard
looking at the flower covered grave, with the
inscription "My Pal." The display of James

den of roses in which 6,000 roses were used,
giving the beholders the impression of looking
into a real garden, breathing the fragrance
from the wealth of blossoms and watching a
group of children playing among them. The

Various organizations had entered floats
in the division for fraternal and civic clubs.
Among these were some of the most attractive
in the entire parade. There were also many
novel presentations, among them being that

outriders on spirited horses and a typical

There were many extraordinary effects found
among these. Here too the judges had a
difficult task to pick the winners from the

New Navy Planes Pay Visit to Miami
SQUAnBO. or UNCLE SAM'S LATEST FwTorINO SEAPLANES AT ANnou uN BrSCAYNE BAY
IAMI was the stopping point for two squadrons of
U. S. Navy planes on their way from Norfolk to
Culebra island to participate in the mid-winter
Maneuvers of the sea forces of Uncle Sam. The first to
arrive were twelve of the new torpedo planes in command
of Lieutenant Commander Cassard. The flight was made
from'Fernandina at an average speed of ninety miles an.
hour, covering the 315 air miles without mishap.
The torpedo planes are the latest word among sea-
planes. They have been in the experimental stage all
summer and are now for the first time assigned to the
fleet. They will play an important part in the winter
fleet maneuvers off Culebra island. Each plane carries
a 1;500 pound torpedo which it discharges while skim-
ming. just over the surface of the water. Each plane also
has its own wireless outfit for communicating with the
The second detachment consisting of fourteen bombing
planes, were under command of Lieut. Commander Mon-
fort. They were delayed somewhat in their arrival due
to stiff winds up the Florida coast. They remained in
the bay only long enough for the men to get a rest and
the machines to be tuned up.
Three U. S. destroyers accompanied the planes, the
Lark, the Mallard and the Teal. While in Miami the
officers were entertained in various ways and the men
enjoyed shore leave. There were about 200 navy men in
the entire party.
Greenville Delegation Coming
A delegation of 125 of the leading business men of
Greenville, N. C., are making a friendship tour of the
state of Florida in February and they plan to spend an
entire day in Miami, the longest stop on the trip. The

calls for a motorcade through the. fruit, grove and
vegetable plantations in _the southern portion of the
county, in which the newly organized Redlands Chamber
of Commerce at Homestead will assist.

attract to Florida many men of wealth is con-
tained in the following proposed amendment
to the constitution which will exempt incomes
and inheritances forever from state taxation:
"No tax upon inheritances or upon the in-
come of residents or citizens of this state shall
be levied by the state of Florida or under its
authority, and there shall be exempt from
taxation to the head of a family residing in
this state, household goods and personal ef-
fects to the value of five hundred dollars."
This is notice to wealth that here i.s a place
where the invitation to come and live is made
more inviting than elsewhere in the country,

World Champion WVomen Swimmers to Meet Here
BY RAY McCARTHY
Sports Director of Miami Chamber of Commerce
HE week of February 4th, will introduce to the resi-
dents of Miami and Miami Beach, the first major
competition of an all-star program of championship
events arranged by the Director of Sports under the au-
thorization of the Miami Chamber of Commerce.
Mr. Sewell and the directors of this body as well as
the many sports enthusiasts in this community are leav-
ing nothing undone in their efforts to make Miami and
Miami Beach, the winter sports center of America. And
it is very gratifying to announce that in this first big
championship event-the all-star swimming meet which
will be held.at the Roman Pools of the Miami Beach
Casino-every girl swimmer of note will compete.
The list embraces the greatest array of swimming
talent that ever ventured south of the Mason-Dixon line.
Each and every girl, whose name is listed, is a leading
candidate in her specialty for the Women's Swimming
Olympic team. There is not one outstanding star in the
country who has been omitted. So that this meet which
will be held on six successive days-the longest of its
kind ever held in the United States-will be without any
doubt the greatest ever held in the South and one of the
finest ever put on in this country.
One of the features of this meet here will be the pres-
ence of Miss Helen Wainwright. Miss Wainwright and
Miss Gertrude Ederle are considered the greatest all-
round girl swimmers ever developed in this country. Be-
tween them they hold practically all records for all dis-
tances. But Miss Wainwright has not competed against
Miss Ederle, Miss Lambert and the others this past year
because of her connections with Madison Square Garden
pool in New York City.
Recently, however, on her own application she was re-
instated to membership in the Women's Swimming As-
sociation of New York, the finest organization of this
kind in the country and one. which has developed more
champions than any other club, except possibly the Illinois
A. C. of Chicago which has among its members, Sybil
Bauer, Johnny Weismuller and Stubby Kruger.
Fortunately for Miami Miss Wainwright was reinsta-
ted in time to make the trip here with the other girls and
it will be interesting to see how she fares in competition
with her-clubmates who have been active participants in
the various championships the past year.
When Miss Wainwright was reinstated to the W. S. A.
and decided to make the trip to Miami there was then only
one champion missing, namely, Miss Sybil Bauer, the
greatest back-stroke swimmer in the United States and
the only girl in the history of athletics ever to better a
man's record. Not so very long ago, Miss Bauer broke
the back-stroke record for 100 yards previously held by
Stubby Kruger. Miss Bauer at first did not feel that she
could get away at this time for this trip. But at the last
minute the authorities of the school she attends granted
her permission to be absent during this particular week,
so that she, too, will be one of the contestants.
A word or two about the personnel of this party would
not be amiss here. None of these girls has yet reached the
age of 21. Most of them are mere school girls averaging
about 15 or 16 years of age. The youngest, Miss Katherine
Brown, who won the privilege of making the trip to

Miami against a field of ten girls in a recent trial meet
in the Women's Swimming Association pool has just
passed the 12 year mark. Miss Helen Meany, National
High Diving champion, the oldest in the group is 20 years
old. She was a member of the 1920 Olympic team.
Miss Ederle and Miss Wainwright, as previously
stated, are considered the greatest two all-round swim-
mers the United States has ever sent forth to competition.
Miss Aileen Riggin, a charming young girl of 15, is the
diving sensation of the century, and is also a talented toe
dancer. Miss Riggin is the present National Fancy Div-
Miss Doris O'Mara is one of the most promising of the
younger group which has come up within .the past year.
Miss Agnes Geraghty is also a young champion who has
been developed within the period of a single year. Lou
Handley, noted writer on swimming is mostly responsible
for the development of these girls. He and Miss Char-
lotte Epstein, manager of the Women's Swimming Olympic
team, have done most of the coaching.
When champions meet in competition, records are
bound to fall. The pretentious program has been so ar-
ranged to provide plenty of opportunity for these girls to
give the spectators who visited the Miami Beach Casino
pools week of Feb. 4, a chance to see record-breaking per-
formances each day of the week.
In the handicap events four local girls, Ann Booker,
Betty Bailey, Ruth Williamson, and Sarah Imperatori,
who have developed into Olympic team possibilities during
the past year under the expert tutelage of Willis Cooling,
ALLEN Ri oorNm GETrUD DE LD.
Casino chief instructor, will compete against the cham-
pions. There are a number of other girls from the var-
ious Northern cities who are also planning to participate
in this meet. The program by days follows:

1he' air and upon the water are expected to
compete in Miami, March 7 and 8, at the
combined contests of the American Power

This meet will bring together "more speed kings than
have ever gathered in one spot at one time before. Bis-
cayne Bay is being surveyed for the contests, a fifteen
mile triangular course for the sea planes being established
by the American Aeronautical Association which has sanc-
tioned the races. The navy and the army will have com-
petitors and many civilian flyers have announced their
An interesting program of spectacular exhibitions both
in the air and on the water other than the races them-
selves, (which will be full of thrills), is being arranged.
The date will fit in well with the plans of the winter visi-
tors and many thousands in other sections of Florida will
make the trip to Miami to see these events. The predic-
tion is made that Miami will entertain more people on
those two days than have ever been in this city at one
The department of Agriculture of the state of Florida
has just issued a very attractive booklet in which a num-
ber of very prominent men give their impressions of
Florida and its possibilities. There are many fine illus-
trations setting forth the attractions of various portions
of the state.
The All Florida banquet which will be served to the
newspaper men of New York City by the exhibitors at the
Madison Square Garden Florida show will probably not
be any more extensive than the all Dade county menu
served to the Ad men at their recent banquet in Miami.
Better marketing of fruits and vegetables has become
one of the necessities of Florida growers. It is a life and
death subject and the sooner they all realize it the better
for the state.

NLARGEMENTS in the plant and extension in the
service that has occupied the attention of the offi-
cers of the South Atlantic Telephone and Tele-
graph Company for the last twelve months and reaching
over most of the present year will total an expenditure of
more than one million dollars. The company had just
completed the installation of a dial system and enlarged
the territory served by phone, but when they got through
they found that between the date the enlargements had
been inaugurated and the completion of same that the
population of Miami and surrounding suburbs had in-
creased faster than their anticipations with the result
that there was a long waiting list which necessitated an
immediate expansion of the system.
For the last seven years the telephone company has
been traveling at a rapid rate to try to keep pace with
the growth of population in Miami. It has been impos-
sible to finance these improvements from earnings and
this has brought new money into Miami for investment
in this vicinity.
The total number of telephones now in operation in the
Miami Leads in Postal Savings
Miami has more postal savings clients than any other
city in Florida, as shown by the annual statement of
operations of the postal savings system.
In Miami there are 964 depositors who have to their
credit savings making the total of $111,728.
However, Jacksonville, with 941 depositors, passes
Miami in amount of savings, with a total of $161,562, and
Pensacola, with 744 depositors, has $217,005.
It does not appear that Floridans are rushing to -the
postal savings system to the hurt of the regular bank,
for in the entire state there are only 4,473 postal deposi-
tors, and their total accounts are only $789,132.
Miami district is 8,700. If all goes well an additional
1,500 phones will be installed by March first. By the end
of the year it is expected that a new branch system will
have been installed at Coral Gables which will entail an
investment of about $150,000.
During the year 1923 the company used in its exten-
sion work 100,000,000 conductor feet of new cable. The
underground system in the central part of the city has
been practically completed making a total of twenty-one
miles of underground ducts. The poles used amounted to
forty carloads or a total of 2,000 poles. The record of calls
for the month of December was 50,000 daily which has
been considerably increased since the number of winter
visitors has become greater.
General Manager F. W. Webster announces that among
the extensions for the immediate future are: Subway con-
struction on N. E. Second St.; increased trunking cables
at Miami Beach; more than $100,000 of new equipment at
the Miami and Miami Beach exchanges; and additional
toll circuits to Dania.
Here's Some Climate Fads
Last year the U. S. Weather Bureau at Miami
reports that this city enjoyed 74 per cent of the possible
amount bf sunshine. In 1922 Miami made a record of
only one day in the entire year in which the sun did not
shine. And during these two years the thermometer did
not rise above 92 and reached that point just one time.
Miami's hat is in the ring, and no section barred.
The inquiries at the Hotel Men's Association infor-
mation bureau at the Miami depot were 85 per cent
greater in December than for the same month in 1922,
showing conclusively that the season began here earlier
than ever before,
Refining Sugar Now in Dade County
A RED letter day in
Dade County was that
upon which the Penn-
sylvania Sugar Company
early in. January started
grinding cane in its $1,-
500,00 mill on its plantation
18 miles from Miami along
the Miami canal.
This company has more
than 150,000 acres of Ever-
glade muck 'soil with about
4,000 acres in cane. After
two years of experimenting
on a small tract the decision
was made that everything
was favorable here to the
development of this industry
and in the last two years
fields of cane have been
planted, the mill erected and
the other work carried' on.
Last year, due to the exces-
sive rains in central Florida
and the overflow of Lake
Okeechobee, the drainage ca-
nals could not carry off all
the water that came south-
ward and the cane was spoil-
ed for sugar making pur-
poses, but was used for new DEnRi
This year everything has conspired to the success of
the undertaking. Only a few hundred acres will proba-
bly be cut and converted into sugar, the remainder being
used for further planting, bringing the total acreage in
cane to about 5,000.
A rail line has been built leading from the mill into
the fields and the cut cane thus transported speedily to
mills. Special cars have been built to facilitate the hand-
ling of the cane. This is only one of the numerous econ-
omic features introduced as many other operations have
been simplified, beginning with the cutting of the cane by
machinery to its emergence as the refined product.
There are about three hundred men at work at the

plantation now and it is expected that next winter the
force will be more than a thousand.
In addition to the huge boilers and steam engines that
operate the machinery, and the tremendous boiling re-
ceptacles, the plant has dynamos to produce electricity for
lighting and power throughout the refinery and the adja-
cent settlement; also to operate a machine shop, ice fac-
tory and waterworks plant. An efficient arrangement
has been worked out whereby the fuel used consists of the
refuse from the stalks, while the portion which cannot be
used for fuel is made into pulp for the manufacture of
Samples of the pulp made from the cane stalks have
been sent to leading paper mills
and experiments have shown
the company that it can be made
into any grade of paper from
coarse wrapping fabric to the
finest stationery. The eventual
result, as predicted by persons
interested in the development
of the Everglades, is the .estab-
lishment of a complete paper-
making plant, to be operated in
connection with the refinery.
Maximum capacity of the
sugar mill is 1,500 tons of cane
a day. The amount of sugar to
the ton of cane varies. The aver-
age is about 180-lbs. to the ton.

$15,000,000 Construction in 1923
MIAMI and suburbs spent more than $15,000,000 in
new buildings duringfthe year 1923, that is build-
ings for private individuals and companies. When
to this sum is added the nearly $4,000,000 spent by the
city of Miami for public works; the more than $5,000,000
expended by the development companies and real estate
firms in sub-division improvements the total in new con-
struction for 1923 passes beyond $25,000,000.
The figures of building permits in the state of Florida
shows that Jacksonville by including a $2,000,000 bridge
to be built by the Florida East Coast railroad, leads by a
narrow margin with Miami a close second. St. Peters-
burg which held the lead in the state for several months-
was just edged out by Miami and Miami Beach came
fourth. It is significant that the three leaders in the
state occupied the same relative position in the year 1922.
The 43 municipalities in the state from which reports
were gathered show a total of $52,496,827 for 1923 or a
gain of 52 per cent in building over the preceding year.
Miami's total for the year is $7,201,266 and that of
Miami Beach is $4,185,600. The total number of permits
for Miami was 2,686 of which sixty per cent were private
dwellings. This indicates the substantial character of the
building that was done here and the steady increase in the
population of this city.
The comparisons for the last four years follows:

In the March issue of the Mianian of 1923, before the
building season was fairly started the prediction was
made that in Greater Miami the year would see at least
$12,000,000 in construction setting a new record for this
section. The following month, as the operations took on
concrete form, tha prediction was raised another three
million dollars, which many thought was too high but
which, when the year ended, was conceded to be about
the proper estimate.
Brisk building has always followed a brisk season in
Miami. Therefore with every prospect of a new record
being set up for the number of visitorss in this city,
with the season fully one month earlier in its activity
and with later train service and a program of exceptional
interest scheduled for the month of March, there is no
doubt that thousands will remain here longer this winter
than ever before.
All of this will be an incentive to brisk building for
the coming summer. It means pleased visitors who will
return and who will persuade their friends to come. It
means more accommodations will be needed next season.
It means more families will locate permanently in Miami.
It means more capital invested in enterprises here.
Already announcement has been made of several new
hotels that will run into large money. A number of
others are contemplated, but announcement will not be
made until spring. The number of apartment houses is
now above the 300 mark, but this figure will be increased
somewhat before the summer is over. Activity in
West Flagler realty is believed to be advance notice
of considerable building in that section. The completion
of the Second avenue bridge will bring into being other
business sections. The street improvements and sewer
construction in Riverside will stimulate the building of
more homes in that section. Two active business sections
have developed on Twelfth avenue within the last few
months and several other neighborhood store sections have
come into being within the last year.
New developments along the Tamiami Trail, many new
homes in the western part of the city, building activity
along the Miami river, both north and south sides, the
rapid increase in homes in the southern area, the ex-
tensions along Biscayne Bay, both within the city limits
and just beyond, the growth along the Dixie Highway, the
new homes announced for the islands in the bay, the ac-
tivity in Coral Gables, Hialeah, Coconut Grove, Silver
Bluff, Miami Beach and other suburban localities-all
these indicate a building program that has just started
and that will continue.
In the central business section there were several
projects planned for last summer, but held over for an-
other year for one cause or another. The new building
now under way for the Biscayne Bank will be one of
the largest constructions in this particular section. An-
other arcade is in the planning and additions and alter-
ations are being prepared by architects for other struc-
March is going to be a very interesting month in
Miami. The first week will see the spectacular air and
water combined races, in which will be entered many men
who have made world's records both in aeroplanes, in
sea planes and in power boats. The second and third
weeks will see the annual Dade County Fair and the State
Flower Show. The last week will be given over to music
and the combined choirs of the city will participate.
A special section of the Floridan will be used to bring
to Miami early in February a delegation from the Hamil-
ton club of Chicago. This is one of the largest clubs in
the United States and many iu the party plan on staying
here for several weeks.

January, 19, The Miamian
Florida East Coast Association Meeting
HE second quarterly meeting of the Assocation of
the Chambers of Commerce of the East Coast of
Florida met at Cocoa January 10 with an 85 per
cent attendance of the membership which was regarded
as a good representation.
Several topics were discussed, not only of interest to
this particular section of the state but to all of Florida.
Chief among these matters was the further improvement
of the Dixie highway, and from assurances given by Chief
Engineer J. L. Cresap of the state road department this
important route will be in fine condition when tourists
start south next fall.
The entire distance of the Miami-Georgia road is about
400 miles, and of this distance work is either in progress
or will be begun without delay on 125.6 miles. This total
consists of 96.4 miles let to contractors and 29.2 miles
done by the state road department with its own men and
machinery. The various projects, the distances and the
contractors are as follows:
Nassau county, project 521, Morgan-Hill Paving Co.,
Flagler county, project 507, Barber-Fortner Co., 9.7
Volusia county, project 604, C. F. Lytle, 7.7 miles.
Volusia county, project 597, J. Y. Wilson, 16.1 miles.
Brevard county, Federal project 48, Langston Construc-
tion Co., 12 miles.
Brevard county, Federal project 40-C, J. Y. Wilson,
Brevard county, Federal project 40-A, C. F. Lytle,
St. Lucie county. Federal, project 36-B, C. F. Lytle,
S 7.7 miles.
J St. Lucie county, Federal project 36-A, H. L. Clarke
& Son, 7.8 miles.
The projects under way by the state road department
with its own men and machinery are the following:
Nassau county, No. 32, 10 miles; Brevard county, No.
546, 5 miles; Brevard county, No. 554, 5 miles; Brevard
county, No. 608, 9.2 miles.
This leaves only a small portion of the remaining
roadway not up to standard.
A resolution was adopted expressing appreciation of
the attention the state was giving this East Coast high-
way and urging continued effort to speed up the contrac-
President Sewell gave a brief resume of his report on
the inland canal which has been forwarded to Washington,
together with the data gathered by the Association, ask-
ing that this waterway be taken over by the federal gov-
ernment and put into condition for freight and passenger
traffic. A representative of the Florida East Coast Rail-
road addressing the gathering said that the rail company
favored this water route improvement on the theory that
what would benefit the territory it served would benefit
the rail line.
There was some discussion of an improved marketing
system which would give the growers of fruit a better
price or rather a better slice from the sales of his pro-
duct. Nothing final was done in this matter, the decision
being that detailed plans be submitted to the member
chambers of commerce for action and the result taken up
at the next meeting in April at Hastings.
There has been a noticeable reflection upon the state
of Florida in several recent moving pictures and this
matter was brought up with the suggestion that it gave
the appearance of hostile propaganda. The decision was
that President Sewell enter a protest and further handle
the subject as he thought best. Since the meeting an-
other picture has been announced that has aroused the
entire state and vigorous protests from many quarters
have gone forward to the national association and espec-
ially addressed to Mr. Hays the general manager upon
whose fairness Floridians rely.
In one week's mail the Miami Chamber of Commerce
received inquiries from China, France, Switzerland, South
Africa, the Canal Zone, Australia and England. A visitor
once remarked that Miami's advertising encircled the
earth and it begins to look that way.

BEHIND THE SCENES
The weak point in many investments offered is
the apparent lack of interest on the part of the
promoter in having one look behind the scenes;
in short, making an investigation.
Aud generally the interest yield isn't consistent
with good business-those schemes which hold
out rosy promises of sudden wealth.
The best plan is to be sure of the principal and
to invest it in a well managed institution where
it is safe and the interest will take care of itself.
One, in investing in our First Mortgage Bonds,
is welcome to look behind the scenes-for, in lend-
ing our money, we exercise the same caution
every investor should in investing his funds.
Safety First is a good plan. Before investing,

HE top part of ounr picture shown below is rather dark, and it grows brighter as one looks toward the lower portion".:'
Of course, we desire to place Miami not in the "limelight" in this case, but in the real SUNLIGHT, which.we have in..
abundance. We have plenty of limelight too, however, whether our glorious moon is shining or not. Our pictur- is-:
truthful, because South Florida is truly a sunshine spot, as we show it here. We have no desire to be stingy in any "wy, '
land possibly the artist might have carried hiff-ellow tone a little farther into the picture, but wt are assuming the..
expenses for sucb. things, and a point if good publicity is to place, the emphasis at the right spot. As we make Miasr ,
the emphatic spot in our picture, we want you to just look at it, note its location with all the surroundings, and then: e6
will be right glad we printed it. :
