years ao, ** we l a from report
made by and Information derived
from intelligent officers. who operated
near and explored the Everglades and
the : akeim, Okeechooee, north ofat
hub, I have i.dut that the glades
are thirty feet above the level of the
sea. ** The practicability of drain-
ing both I take for granted. * *
The effect of the measure would be
to reclaim many hundreds of thou-
sands of acres without Including the
bed ot the Everglades, n6w subject to
Inundation for several months every
year. * Were the surface of he
lake and glades lowered, these fine
lands would be reclaimed and would
soon be converted into valuable sugar
p4tlosenae. ab rich as any in the
world, The hammocks of this coun-
try are exceedingly rich. Th se re-
claimed lands would be converted
Into olive, lime and orange planta-
tious, and would be cultivated by
a nuMeroes 'white population. * *
B- SungMtm Smith, In a report to
the United States Senate dated June
1, 1848, on the feasibility of. dralng
the Everglades, made use of the' val-
uable information conveyed in a let-
ter written by General William .L
Harney of the United States Army,
dated January 28, 1848. Note the fo- ,
lo*g Xextracts:
"During the late Seminole War I
was repeatedly In the Everglades and
on the rim or margin at different
points, and crossed It from Miami to
Shark river. * 0Of the practlabil-
tty atof dralnt them I have no que*- i
ties. That such work would reclam I
million eof acres of highly valuable
lands, I have nodoubt * I am sat-
ased that these canals and dratie
once opened, the glades would be-
come dry. No person could my with
poseltlve certainty what the soIl ofi the

tude be made valuable for ralsnta
tropical frult, aInd It is the only re-
gion of the present United States in
which they can be raised. * I do
not know of a project that I regard
as more dalculated to beneft the
country than this. * It affords the
Union the best kind of cultivated land
that is wanted to render to us to a
great extent, tadpendent of the West
Indies. *
Pre. W. WSeyr, chief chemstt eo
the United States Agricultural De-
partment, itn htis report on theoe lands,
published In the report of the Secre-
tary of Agriculture for 1851, says:
"In regard to the depths of the son.,
It varies tfen the merest covering at
the edges of the sand to from fifteen
to sitateeno feet tn Its deepest portions

The Obeecobee muck, however, is
underlsid with a thick stratum of

pes inclads all cost of ealttvatlmon

"It Ito not necessary to dwell upon
the fact that with cane produced upon
such a cost, even the Island of Cuba
could not compete with Florida In the
production of xar. There tIs practI-
cally no other body of land in the
world whichh presents such romark-
able possiblitles of development 'as
the muck lands bordering on the
southern shores of Lake Okeechobee.
With a depth at oil averaging, per-
hap, elght feet, and extent of nearly
a halt allBon areas, with a surtaces-
almost level, It affords promise of de-
velopment which, reaches beyond the
nimits of prophecy."
