Washington, Dec. 16. Adhering: to

Congress probe the suppression of
government engineering reports on
conditions In the Everglades by Sec Secretary
retary Secretary of Agriculture James Wilson,
Congressman J3. R. Bathrick, of ahlo,
at the request of many of his con constituents
stituents constituents who have purchased Ever Everglades
glades Everglades lands, has demanded that the
House committee on expenditures in
the Department of Agriculture make
an investigation of the department,
and the committee is expected to be begin
gin begin work just as soon as it disposes
of the famous Harvey Wiley case.
That developments of an interesting
character will be brought out is con confidently
fidently confidently expected in Washington po political
litical political circles.
Interest In the investigation Is
heightened by the fact that 12,000
purchasers of Everglades lands, repre represented
sented represented by trustees, recently brought
suit in the circuit court at Kansas
City, Mo., In which they seek to tie
up hundreds of thousands of dollars
of the Florida Fruit Land Company,
organized at Colorado Springs, Colo.,
until the contract for reclamation of
the Everglades is carried our. Many
purchasers have asked lawyers to sue
the state of Florida, but this Is pre prevented
vented prevented by constitutional provision.
Between 50,000 and 75,000 people are
said to have purchased Everglades
lands with a view of locating and op

erating truck farms, and many of
these have appealed to congressmen of

their district for information and as

sistance in getting their rights. It Is
said that fully 3,000 resdents of the

District of Columbia, including sen

ators, representatives, department em

ployers, newspaper workers and oth

ers, are among the purchasers, and all
are asking this question:

"Will our land be worth the price

we paid for It, or have we been bitten?"

Further development In the Ever

glades will alone answer this ques question,
tion, question, but the land people have already

got their'n." They bought this land

from the state at an average of 1 per

acre the tate to pay $1.50 of this for
drainage operations and are said to

have sold It at an average of $50 per
acre. Quite a number of dealers have
sold their holdings and retired f vat.

J. O. Wright, a supervising drainage

engineer employed by, the Department
of Agriculture under Elliott, after
spending considerable time in the Ev Everglades
erglades Everglades and among Florida officials,
began a report on the Everglades, the
optimistic character of which Elliott,

his chief, and other engineers would

not stand for. Some of these officials

believed at the time that Wright was
going to accept the position of drain

age chief of the Internal Improvement

Board of Florida, at a salary of $5, $5,-000,

"graphic and popular manner," and
when not allowed to inject highly fa favorable

tioned Questioned by Elliott as to the cause of
delay Elliot says Wright replied that
"Governor Broward of Florida would
be defeated in the coming election, and
the succeeding administration would

have no interest in the Everglades

project." Various engineers criticised

and changed the report and Wright

nally temporarily refused to attempt

o revise it.

Copies of the report, before revision,

were sent to the Internal Improvement

Board, Governor Gilchrist and land

yndicates. They were published as a

legislative document Land dealers it

is alleged, eliminated the adverse fea features
tures features and used the favorable features
in their advertising.

These advertisements resulted in a

flood of inquiries being sent to Sec Secretary
retary Secretary Wilson, prospective purchasers
desiring to know the exact conditions

n the Everglades and if the govern

ment was behind the movement. Sec Secretary
retary Secretary Wilson and Chief Elliott pre

pared a circular letter on the sub

ject, which contained several features

that were objectionable to the land
dealers, principal among them being

this statement:

"Also in this soil provision must be

made for irrigation, or for maintaining

the water in the ditches and soil at a
fairly uniform depth, not too low. In
order that there may always be suffi sufficient
cient sufficient moisture for the production of

erops, and to prevent the liability of

the muck catehing fire and burning."

That such fires have occurred is well

known to all who know anything of

the Everglades.

Land Men Get Baay
In January, 1910, according to El

liot certain Interested Everglades

land promoters visited his office and,
in the presence of Director True and
others "threatened him personally

with public exposure" in case he did

not cease sending out reports deroga

tory to the Everglades. He refused

to accede to their wishes and they
threatened to "go higher up." This
threat was followed by an order from
Secretary Wilson that all information
regarding the Everglaedes be with withheld

Wilson called Chief Elliott to his office

ida Grower: Enclosed find $1 for a
year's subscription to your valuable

paper. I have formed the habit of
reading The Grower through a neigh

bor handing it to me and now feel

that I cannot do without it.
I have been very much interested
in your fight over the green fruit law
and from a Northerner's point of view
will say that the only thing that will
ever give Florida the prestige that
she deserves in the Northern markets

is to keep her green fruit at home
until it is ripe.
Until last winter I never knew that

Florida oranges were good to eat. Usu Usually
ally Usually I would buy a few of the first in
the market, and be so disgusted with
them that I would wait for California
fruit. Having spent a part of last win winter
ter winter In Florida I learned that the trou trouble
ble trouble is not with Florida oranges, but
with the people who ship them before
they are ripe. I think that the Ex Exchange
change Exchange is putting up a good fight.
One box of unripe fruit at a store
queers the sale of any ripe fruit later
on. I believe many orange growers
in Florida lose sight of the fact that
California oranges are good and that

j the California grower is making such

a strong bid for the uNorthern market
that the Florida orange is unknown

in many sections after the Califor

nia fruit comes in. This is almost

entirely due to the bad impression
made by the first shipments from

The Florida orange is good, sweet
and juicy, and all the Florida grower
has got to do to create a market for
his fruit is to see that no fruit leaves
the state that he would not enjoy eat eating
ing eating himself.
I am interested In Florida to the
extent of 120 acres of land near
Brooksville, and hope in the not too
distant future to improve it, perhaps
grow some oranges and grapefruit,
so you see. I am selfish enough to
wish Florida prosperity.
Yours truly, W"M. A. McCOOL.

the second day of the north
wester Sheldon was In col
lapse from his fever. It had
taken an unfair advantage ot
his weak state, and. though it was only
ordinary malarial fever, in forty-eiphi
hours It had run him as low as ten
days of fever would have done when
he was In condition. But the dysen
tery had been swept away from lie
rande. A score of convalescents Ho
gered In the hospital, but they were
improving hourly. There had been
nit one more death that of the man
whose brother bad wailed over him iu
stead of brushing the flies away.
On the morning of the fourth day of
his fever Sheldon lay on the veranda,
gazing dimly .out over the ragin?
ocean. The wind was falling, but a
mighty sea was still thundering in on
Berande beach, the flying spray reach
lng in as far as the flagstaff mounds,
the foaming wash creaming against
the gateposts. He had taken thirty
grains of quinine, and the drug was
buzzing In his ears like a nest of hor
nets, making his hands and knees
tremble and causing a sickening pal
pitation of the Btomach. Once, open
lng bis eyes, he saw what he took to
be a hallucination. Not far out and
coming In across the Jessie's anchor
age he saw a whaleboat's nose thrust
skyward on a smoky crest and tlis
appear naturally, as an actual whale
boat's nose should disappear, as it
slid down the back of the sea. Hp
knew that no whaleboat should be
out there, and he was quite certain
no men In the Solomons were mad
enough to be abroad In such a storm.
But the hallucination persisted. A
minute later, chancing to open his eyes
he saw the whaleboat, full length, and
saw right Into It as it rose on the face
of a wave. He saw six sweeps at
work, and in the stern, clearly out
lined against the overhanging wall ot
white, a man who stood erect, gigantic,
swaying with his weight on the steer
lng sweep. This he saw, and an eighth
man who crouched In the bow and
gazed shoreward. But what startled
Sheldon was the sight of a woman in
the sternsheets between ?the stroke
oar and the steersman. A woman she
was, for a braid of her hair was flying,
and she was just in the act of recap recapturing
turing recapturing it and stowing It away beneath
a bat that for all the world was iike
his own "Baden-Powell."
r The boat disappeared behind the
wave and rose into view on the face
of the following one. Again he looked
into It The men were dark skinned
and larger than Solomon islanders, but
the woman, he could plainly see. was
white. Who she was and what she
was doing there were thoughts that
drifted vaguely through his conscious consciousness.

feeling that it was all a dream.
"Good hoatmen." was Sheldon's ver verdict,

on the face of a huge breaker, the
sweeps flying swifl'.y to keep her on
that front of the moving mountain f
water that raced madly for the shore.
It was well done. Part full of water,
the boat was flung upon the beach, the
men springing out and dragging its
nose to the gate posts. Sheldon bad

to one side, her hand resting on the
gate. Occasional surges of sea water
washed over her feet, which he could
see were Incased in rubber sea boots.
She scrutinized the bouse sharply, and

ward him. The two men waited at tho
head of the steps watching curiously.
The girl was angry. He could see
that Her gray eyes were flashing and
her lips were quivering. That she had
a temper was his thought But the
eyes were striking. He decided that
they were not gray after all, or, at
least, not all gray. They were large
and wide apart and they looked at him
from under level brows. Her face
was cameolike, so clear cut was it
There were other striking things about
her the cowboy Stetson hat, the heavy
braids of brown hair and the long bar barreled
reled barreled 38 Colt's revolver that hung in its
holster on her hip.
"Pretty hospitality, I must say," was
her greeting, -letting strangers sink or
swim in your front yard.
I I beg your pardon, he stam stammered,
mered, stammered, by a supreme effort dragging
himself to his feet
His legs wabbled under him, and
with a suffocating sensation he began
sinking to the floor. He was aware
of a feeble gratification as he saw
solicitude leap into her eyes; then
blackness smote him, and at the mo moment

he was on the couch indoors. A glance
at the clock told him tfeat It was 6,
and from the direction the sun's rays
streamed into the room he knew that
it was morning. At first he puzzled
over something untoward be was sure
had happened. Then, on the wall, he
saw a Stetson hat hanging and beneath
it a full cartridge belt and a long
barrelled S3 Colt's revolver.
The slender girth of the belt told Its
feminine story, and be remembered
the whaleboat of the day before and
the gray eyes that flashed beneath the
level brows. She. it must have been,
who had Just rung the bell. The cares
of the plantation rushed upon him, and
he sat up in bed, clutching at the wall
for support as -the mosquito screen
lurched dizzily around him. He was
still sitting there, holding on, with
eyes closed, striving to master his
giddiness, when he heard her voice.
'You'll lie right down again, sir,"
she said.
It was sharply Imperative, a voice
used to command. At the same time
one hand pressed him back toward the
pillow while the other caught him
from behind and eased him down.
"You've been unconscious for twenty-four
hours now," she went on, "and
I have taken charge. When I say
the word you'll get up, and not until
then. Now. what medicine da you

plantation. Can't you see that I am
Just bursting to tell somebody, any anybody,
body, anybody, about my shipwreck?"
He smiled. It was the first time in
weeks. And he smiled, not so much at
what she said, as at the way she said
it the whimsical expression on her
face, the laughter in her eyes, and the
several tiny lines of humor that drew
in at the corners. He was curiously
wondering as to what her age was,
as he said aloud:
Tea, tell me, please."
"That I will not not now," she re retorted,
torted, retorted, with a toss of the bead. "I'll
find somebody to tell my story to who

He gave in easily enough, but as she

Representatives of Florida Citrus
Exchange in Northern Citiies
Make Optimistic Reports.

Owing to the rapid increase in our business and a need
of additional room, we have moved into the store formerly
occupied by the paint department of the Ocala Lumber fe
Supply Company, with A, M. Lansford, the music iealer,
We are now better prepared than ever to handle your
Tailoring, Cleaning and Pressing.

For the first time in many years,
Florida citrus fruit prices were
stronger directly following a holiday
than they were before a holiday.
Past experience has led Florida
shippers into a dread of the few days
following Thanksgiving, and a still
greater dread for the few weeks fol following
lowing following the Christmas holidays.
To the surprise of every one not
posted, the great markets in the Unit United
ed United States showed a much stronger
tone on the following day after
Thanksgiving that it had for the three
days preceding Thanksgivxing, and
today two days after Thanksgiving
the wires are coming from every
direction duplicating orders at price

of last sale; but the Exchange isnot
duplicating orders on any such basis, j
In view of the foregoing condition
which is true and which is only ;
what the Exchange anticipated the
following extract from a letter writ written
ten written November 27 from one of our dis district
trict district managers is interesting:
"Chase & Co's brokers stated to
him that they had instructions from
Chase & Co. to notify the trade that
there was plenty of oranges, not to
get in a hurry to buy, but wait for
better prices."
They say that imitation is the sin sin-cerest
cerest sin-cerest form of flattery, but, when imi imitation
tation imitation gets to the point of unfair com competition
petition competition in trade, the courts have
something to say.
The following extract from a letter

from our Pittsburg manager is inter interesting:
esting: interesting: "Among the receipts of our com competitors
petitors competitors upon this market the past
week, we have noticed in particular
three cars, viz.: one from the Uma
tilla Fruit company, one from Milwaukee-Florida
Fruit company and one
marked: "Independent Shippers."
The boxes in each of these cars were
marked on the sides with a sign or
trademark, which, although not the
same as the one used by the Ex Exchange,
change, Exchange, was evidently gotten up to
resemble that as closely as possible
without infringing it. This is doubt doubtless
less doubtless a 'method being used by the
shippers to obtain some of the ad advantages
vantages advantages resulting from our improv improved
ed improved packs and advertising campaign
and the acknowledgement of these
advantages is certainly a great com compliment
pliment compliment to the Exchange."
It is a compliment all right, but
the United States courts have decided

time and again that this sort of com compliment
pliment compliment in addition to this comes se seriously
riously seriously under the head of certain laws
to prevent 'unfair competition in
trade," and the Exchange has in instructed
structed instructed its Northern attorneys to se secure
cure secure evidence of all these imitative
labels and proceed legaly against the
shippers so offending.
The Florida Citrus Exchange is
quoting oranges today twenty-five
cents a box higher than they were
a week ago, all grades, and yet the
outside shippers don't seem to have
found out that the market is advanc

ing instead of getting lower. The fol following
lowing following quotation from one of our

Southern managers is interesting:
"Only one car of oranges delivered
here this week, which came from
Carlton of Arcadia
have a car en route from A. J. Smith

of Wauchula, and they showed me
his invoice. The oranges were billed

at $1.45, grapefruit Brights $3.20, Rus

sets $3.00 f. o. b. On the bottom of
his invoice he says: 'I am putting in

some boxes -288 oranges, for which

I will make no charge."

We knew that outside interests

were naming some pretty low prices
from Florida, one of them having
been quoting freely on the basis of
$1.05 f. o. b. cars; but this is the first

instance that we have run across
where outside interests in addition

to selling oranges at fifty cents a box

below the market, put chromos in

each car as a gift enterprise to help

make the sales stick.

the prices ruling on the 24th were
from fifty to seventy-five cents a box
higher than our manager had antic anticipated;

he was so afraiief was considerably
stronger than the Friday market that
he mentioned.
The Exchange is booking its orders

and then see how close the outsiders
mentioned in the following quotation
from one of our agents in one of the
Southern points are keeping posted
on the markets and trying to keop
in line with Exchange prices. And
the sad part of It Is that these very
outsiders will be shouting privately
and publicly that "the- Exchange has
'busted the market ou us!"
"Regret exceedingly to say that 1
