during that period he was employed
by the Atlantic and Gulf Coast Canal

James M. Kreamer, chief engineer of
said Company; that this Company
was engaged In extensive drainage
operations In Southern Florida under
a contract with the Trustees of the
Internal Improvement Fund, the field
of its operations extending from the
headwaters of the Kissimmee River
down to Lake Okeechobee, the Ever-

and a general deserlption of every

That for twelve years he gave close,
unremittlUa study to the dralainage
problem and all the data that he could
gather towards an intelligent solution
was obtalaed; that they were en-
deavoring to obtain a fund of knowl-
edge by which something could be
worked out of It; that his Instructions
were to find out the quality of the
amuck, the quantity of the muck, the
quality of the pine woods bordering
oun the muck, the general contour of
the marsh, the general contour of the
cypress, the quantity of timber, and
whether there was cross-tie timber, or
say other use that could be made of
the timber, and what it would be good
for; what the land would be good for
and what it ought to bring on the
market, giving a money price; that
levels were taken on the marsh and
on the pine woods, the streams were
measured that run Into the glades, as
well as the streams that run out of
the glades, as well as the streams that
run out of the lake; that soundings
were taken to show the depth of the
muck, to show the depth of sand and
the rock on canal routes; where it
was possible, samples of rock were
gotten, and the place noted on the
map where the samples came from

be analysed and tested as to hardness
and friability, so as to know what

That he examined and mapped the
Atlantic Coast from Township 39
South to Township 60 South, both in-
clusive, and between the Everglades
and the Atlantic, entering the Ever-
glades o( the East side, and the glades
were examined along that entire dis-
tance from three to ten miles; this
was done to establish the character
of the muck lands, as well as the
depth of muck and the underlying
strata. The object of that Informa-
tion, of course, was to facilitate plans
of drainage and navigation.
That he also covered with the same
field work the entire Kisuimmee basin
from Lake Hart, in Township 24
South, to Lake Okeechobee, Township
46. Lake Okeecbobee was meandered
from Ptbeating Creek on the West
side along the West, South and East
shores to the borders of Chancy Itay
on the Northeast corner, a distance
of about S0 miles, and all this data
was carefully planned and explained
on maps which are yet In existence,
sad detailed mapm were made of the
West and Southwest side of Okeecho-
bee sad the Southeast side of same.
From the data that was procured,
the Company deemed it advisable to
confiae their researches on the West
side to the lands North of Township
49, and on the 1ast side to the lands
North of Townsblp 51, as that seems
to be the Southern limit of the deep
sew grass, and also the elevation
Above sea-level was so small South of
these points, it was deemed too diI-
cult to do anything with these lands,

undertaken to do. The cost of this
canal would be very heavy, and it
would be the most expensive of any

An ocean canal frinim lke Okeecho-
bee starting at a ludit about 12 miles
South of Pelican Hay, to New River
on the East Coast, would be 62 miles
In length. This route was surveyed
by me in the summer ot INV9. and the
estimates showed that there would be
four million cubic yards of ruck to be
removed at the South end. the re-
malnder being muck. Samples of this
rock were sent to numerous dredge
builders, but I have never heard the -
result. I doubt, however, that the
reports were favorable, as the rook Is
so hard that It will batter the pots of

seenms that the table rock on which
the glades rest is practically level and
about four to five feet above the sur,
face of the Atlantic, and the Inequall-
ties of the elevation from South going
North are merely the depth of muck
on this table rock, which depth of
muck around the entire South ead of
Lake Okeechobee average from 12 to
16 feet, while the depth of muck at
the mouth end of this belt that has
been examined is barely one to three
feet In deth. This depth of muck
gotas South from Okeechobee holds Its
own for over half way of this distance,
then drops off to the shallows given
before the general shape of this large
saw grass tract being that of a turtle.

I ply expose them to their worst e-.

f eanal that has for Its object simply
* the carrylsn off of the waters of La*e
e Okeechobee, without let or hindrance
y will be detrimental to the scheme of
r reclamation. It might have the effect
d of drying the Rverglades, but by dry.
tag them would ruin them. It is a
- perpetual menace to the destruction
,. of the Beglades by Are and their
d uaproductivenes for want of water.
I, I one ease It wMI destroy them en*

d for cultivation.
e Muck land, being a peat, will take

a for months. just like an old sawdust

B burned away. The fire will burn as
e long as there sla anything left to teed

If the Evergladen were perfectly
e drained, there would be no Iverglades
e In Ave years, If fire should be start-
I ed-not a vestige. It would simply be
- one Immense ash bed on a rock bot-
I tom and absolutely worthless.
- Another essential reason for the
I storage of all the water possible In
Lake Okeechobee la that in the mlame
I date vicinity of lake Okeechobee It
a would have the effect of making the
country warmer, because that large
g body of warm water protects the coun-.
try around It very much; because all
a along on that belt of beach that I
g have spoken of, there are numbers of
rubber trees, some of them over a
L foot In diameter, probably 40 to 50
. feet high, growing probably 60 to 100
years, and they have not been killed
- by the cold simply because that body
* of water protects them from being
killed. Take away the water and you
I remove a storehouse of heat from the
s* section immediately around Lake
I Okeechobee, and if you hold the water
up there, six or eight feet of warm
r water on the lake would probably
I protect that entire marsh that would
be brought lato cultivation, from the
frost; It would keep enough beot so
that In one night It would save mil-
lions of dollars. There to nothing In
nature that is a greater storehouse for
heat than water. It holds more latent
heat than anything else we have, and
that sl a thing we should not lose
eight of.
Affiant has kept In touch with the
schemes for the drainage of the Aver
glades now being contemplated, and
finds that the Irrigation feature of the

he Is of the opinion that If the plans

be ruined as an agricultural propo

An ocean canal brought In from

Okel-ohubee, but not Into It, and run-

tercept all the waters of Okeechobee
and cut off every particle of water
south of that canal, thus absolutely
and completely taking this supply of
water away from it. This would drain

This newspaper has in several
lals covered the subject matter
following, and in one article a
shed the act referred to in full
others have now begun to look

I editor-
r in the
we pub-
1, butas
a little

into some of the injustices and abuses
that have and are being heaped upon
the people of Florida, we reproduce the
following communication from the
(h-alau banner, issue of May lIth.
Onie of Governor Broward's most de-
voted newspaper friends (arnd he has a
few, although he doew not like news-
papers.) recently attenpled the first
and only defense which hits been put
forth on behalf of the trustees of the
I I. Fund against the charge that they
have ignored and dieolw ye the "good
roeai law" of 1903, commanding them
toUcepo mit all of the I 1 uFindl moneys
then in their hands with the- state treas-
urer, to I.e by him distribilted among
the several counties for their use in the
construction of hard roads. This ever
ze;alojus editor declares that the reason
why the' traiatees did not ol'y the law
wnIs Ime'cause tby its term the'money was
direct ed to t1 thus delo|it'edi "only after
all obligations are discharir.ed. "
Hlere is what the act really says:
"After the payment of all leiuabihaliga-
tionn against said moneys "
Not "all ligation' hbut "all legal
obligationsm" not imaginary "obliqa-
tioins" to make a pitifully small begin-
ning of a great public work which must
cost the state many millions; but such
legall obligations as 'could be dis-
charged by the "payment of such mon-
iys as were in hand; not "imaginary
obligations against the I I Fundorthe
trustees, hut nuch as was then existing
"against snid moneys for clerk hire,
for attorneys fees, postage and other
incidh'ntal expenses of administration.
Andi the very language of the' act im-
Iplle the' l other disbursement required the sanc-
tion of a ietgitlative amendment, such
P4 wIs performed by the act itself.
Then this editor-champion proceeds
to declare that foremost among which
are the reclamation and drainage of the
swamp and overflowedI lands. This
brilliant idea he got direct from (;over-
nor Proward's numerous publications
on drainage, and it is only fair to say
that G(overnor BrowardI actually and
honestly believe's it hinimseIf; but it is
also na only fair beat the truth to say
that hI, ha.s hi.en grossly misled and
badily advismdi. The internal improve-
nwint. act eof Ir,55, which hE' claims as
his authorityy, directs thil trustees to
" e'ike sutchi arranrge'mn.l (not "pay-
mi'n m") foer lhe drainage, f the warnp

Section 88. That the Boardof Drain-

thereof in the State of Florida. That
the Board ot Drainage Commissioners
be and it is authorized and empowered
to prepare a list or lists of all the all.-

lands within such drainage district or
districts, and levy thereon an acreage
tax not exceeding ten cents per acre
per annum to be fixed annually by said
Board of Drainage Commissioners, and

counties embraced in part or in whole
within such drainage district or districts
shall receive such list or lists and enter

Board of Drainage Commissioners in
such manner and form as may be pre-
scribed by the Board of Drainage Com-

trict, to be enforced by tax levy, for
the cost of any work done under the

demnation proceedings deem necessary
for such purposes, and in ascertaining
the compensation to be paid for such
land or right-of-way, benefits to be de-
rived from such drainage shall be con-
Stidered by the jury.
Section 36. The legislature may pro-
vide for the assessment of benefits de-

ILet's drop all technical ques-
tions as to the practicability of
successfully draining the Ever-
glades, as to their value to'the
people when drained, and even
as to whether we need these
lands badly enough to increase
our taxes for this purpose, and
discuss a phase of the question
not re(fuiring technical knowl-
edge, but which may be under-
stood by every taxpayer and citi-
zen: 'Ihe I. & N. Railroad Com-
pany claims the Everglades as a
grant to them by the Florida
Legislature. The Internal Im-
provement Board claims that the
legislature's grant was without
legal authority and is void. The
question of ownership is pending
in a case before the courts, and
will be decided solely on laws al-
ready enacted. Who owns the
Everglades? Who will own them
after our money has been spent
to drain them? If the railroad
company wins its suit, then every
cent invested in drainage will go,
along with the land, to the rail-
road company. Do you want
your money spent improving
property which you have no sure
title to, and which may finally go
to this corporation? If we drain
this property, is it not business
common sense to wait until we
are sure who owns it, the State
or the railroad? Governor Brow-
ardl has claimed that the anti-
drainage movement and all its
argument. were in the interest
of and prompted by the railroads.
Might we not more logically claim
that the Governor's high-handed
efforts to force this drainage on
an unwilling citizenship was in
the interest of the L. & N. Co.,

something like Mr. Clarke is trying to

House of Representatives of the United
States of America, in Congress assem-
"That $3,000.000 of the money here-
after arising from the sale of public
lands, and which, under the act of June
17.1902, would otherwise become a part
of the reclamation fund, may be used
for the purpose of constructing a suita-
ble and comprehensible system of drain-
age of the lands known ast The Ever-

the supervision of the Secretary of Ag-
riculture; Provided,That all the expense
of such construction, including salaries
and the maintenance of works for a pe-
riod not exceeding ten years, shall be
assessed against the lands proposed to
be drained in proportion to befits,
said assessments to be levied and the
money to be paid in not to exceed ten
annual installments, under such laws

State of Florida, and when so paid shall
be covered into the reclamation fund to
be used under the provisions of said act
of June 17,1902: And provided further
That any money paid in by the said

A Texas Wonder.
There's a Hill at Bowie, Tex., that's

is W. L. Hill, who from a weight of 90
pounds has grown to over 180. He says:
"I suffered with a terrible cough, and

why, if this is the present limit' of their
purpose, they have started on a plan
which will flood thousands of acres of
land in and around Fort Lauderdaleand
on the Atlantic now dry and under cul-
tivation. and convert thriving settle-
ments into watery wildernesses?
Taking the single county of Dade, I
find that In 1901 the average taxes on
land for all purpose were about 3J cents
per acre. In fr02 this had increased to
about 4 cents per acre. In 1903 there
was a further increase to between 5 and
6 cents per acre. In 1904 there was a
reduction to about 4 cents per acre.
While in 1906, with this 5 cents acreage
tax for drainage purposes, the total
taxes on the land owners in this county
have increased to the enormous sum of
between 20 and 25 cents per acre!
There does not appear to have been
on the part of the Governor and his as-
sociates the slightest effort to ascertain
to what extent the imposition of this
acreage tax would inflict intolerable
hardships, if not irreparable injury.
