The Pensacols Journal requested Gov-
ernor Broward to answer a question
propounAed to him by the Hon. John S.
Beard during the recent Pensacola
drainage debate, which the Journal af-
Armed the Governor had failed to notice.
The question was: "While the owner-
ship of these Everglade lands is in dias
pate-while it is a matter of litigation
in the courts-will it be wise to spend
the people's money in draining them
until ameh ownership is settled?"
In the Journal of September 9 Gov-
ernor Broward takes almost an entire
page to make reply. The reply c m-
priae two separate communications to
the Journal. After the first one was
written it probably appeared to be
rather weak-which it was-and he ac-
cordingly wrote another-which was
weaker still. Both letters consist mainly
of "excurpts" from the Governor's
stereotyped speech which he recently
delivered at Jasper and Lake City, and
therefore they contain little that is new,
and still less that can be regarded as
an answer to Mr. Beard's question.
The Journal editorially condenses the
"answer" into five numbered sections.
which we will consider separately in
their order, and concludes its editorial
thus: "It remains now for the opposi-
tion to knock the props from under his
logic by showing that it is based on
false premises and that his conclusions
are not justt" which the True Demo-
crat will now proceed to do with the
"1. The Trustees have no option in
the matter. Their duty, under the law,
is to drain the Everglade, no matter
where the ownership lies."
How is it that the "duty to drain the
Everglades," regardless of the courts,
the rights of individuals, the solemn en.
actments of Legislatures and the set-
tied policy of a succession of boards of
trustees, continuing for more than fifty
years and comprising in their member-
ship some of the wisest and most illus-
trious men Florida has ever produced,
was never before recognized or under-
taken, but was left, for all of that long
period, for the Jennings-Broward board
to discover and exploit?
"2. If drainage is to wait until all
litigation is settled, it will never be ac-
complished any more than Palafox
street could be paved if the city were
to wait on every or any diatisfted tax-
payer who might insist on obstructive
This is a bold and reckless defiance of
the majesty of the law and the author-
ity of the courts. It is actuated by the
same kind of spirit which impels the
criminal to defiance and outlawry, the
socialist to contempt of law and order
and the anarchist to assassination.
Constitutions and courts are the bul-
wark of the citizen as a protection
against the usurpation of power by op-
pressive rulers, and to defend society
against the encroachments of despotism
and the violation of the laws. In ef-
fect, Governor Broward would say:
"Away with the courts, when they in-

"8. The lands which are to be
drained will, themselves, under the
drainage amendment, bear the cost of
such drainage, said cost being divided
as follows: The lands themselves pay.
ing a drainage tax of five cents an acre
and the State putting up an equal
amount, the State's money to come

lands that have either been sold or will
he sold while the drainage continues.
The lands outside of the Everglades
district will therefore pay no drainage
tax, but the latter will be assessed
against and paid by the lands benefited,
just as the abutting property owners
pay the cost of a street pavement"
Hut this whole proposition assumes
that the courts, which have already en-
joined the collection of the drainage
tax. and have denied every effort of the
board to remove the injunction, will
positively adopt the views of the board,
dinssolve the injunctions and leave the
board free to carry out its plan. How
can (Governor BIroward know that such
will be the result? The adoptionof the
amendment cannot by any possibility
affect the final decision of the courts.
The State has not yet "put up an equal
amount." Against the $166,000of drain-

done, to levy ibeMageI taxes (with the
proceeds of w"a to "drain the Ever-
glades") upon lad which lie scores or
hundreds of miles distant from the
Everglades, and upa lands which can-
not by any poeaiibty be benefited by
such drainage, or say drainage, and
upon lands, like cypress timber, the
value of which would be irreparably
injured, if not utterly destroyed, by
"4. If the railroads should ultimately
get the lands, the State would still be
the gainer, because, after drainage, the
lands will represent many million dol-
lars in taxable property and the State
will receive taxes from them, whereas
now It receives nothing,"
If the courts decree that the lands
belong to the railroads, and command
the Board to make deeds accordingly,
will not the lands be at once placed
upon the tax books and State and coun-
ty taxes assessed against them, payable
by the railroads? And is not the Board
(by refusing to make deeds, as com-
manded to do by the Legislature), and
by contesting the rights of the railroads
in the courts) itself primarily responsi-
ble for the fact that "the State re-
ceives nothing," and has long been pre-
vented from receiving anything in the
shape of taxes, from these lands? The
alleged increase in value on account of
drainage is a proposition so remotely
problematical as to scarcely merit seri-
ous consideration, particularly in view
of the fact, substantiated by abundant
testimony already taken in the drainage
injunction suits, that much of the land
proposed to be drained would be perma-
nently injured, instead of benefited, by
drainage, and in some instances its
value absolutely destroyed, as in the
case of cypress lands.
"5. The railroads will not get the
Funds, because, if everything else fails,
the State can still prove, by the Consti-
tution, that the various Legislatures
have given sway more lands than the
Cofistitution permits them to grant-
that said grants are unconstitutional-
and that all of the remaining lands for
which deeds have not been made belong
to the school fund and cannot be deeded
to a railroad company or any one else
except on payment of an agreed price."
This appeal by Governor Broward to
the well-known devotion of the people
to the cause of popular education is a
last, final, desperate effort to rescue
the drainage scheme from its impend-
ing fate. Is it possible that, with the
devoted services of numy highly paid if
not distinguished legal advisers at its
command, the Board has omitted or
neglected to priest to the courts, in
the several suits now pending, so vital
and important a constitutional question
as the one here stated If the State
"can still prove" that the land grants
are void, why has it not been done here-
tofore? And why-with such counsel
to advise it a Raney, the learned jurist,
Cooper, the distngtlished lawyer, La-
mar, the veteran public servant, Whit-
field, the people's choice for Supreme
Court Justice, not to mention a long
list of able me.n preceding them-why
has this crucial constitutional point
never before been raised, to squelch
the greed of the railroad companies and
conclusively dispose, in the twinkling of
an eye, as it were, of this whole vexed
and vexatious question? Was it because
those great men were so poorly paid
for their services that this great fact
remained to be first discovered by a
more expensive adviser?
In order to fully understand the im-
port of this great discovery, and what
its connection may be with the school
fund, we must refer to Governor Brow-
ard's letter itself. He quotes from the
Constitution to th effect that one item

IS IT TOO WORTHLESS$
"J. B. L.," in the Kick Column of
the Jacksonville Metropolis, has the
following on the vagrancy law that was
passed at the last session of the Legis-
"If there is one law that is absolutely
worthless in its present form, it is the
vagrant law in this State. It is the
easiest to evade of any law I know of,
and I have heard the authorities say
that it is almost useless to arrest per-
sons for this offense, as it is next to
impossible to convict them.
"If a man is arrested for vagrancy
he gets some one to testify to his hav-
ing worked at some one time in his life,
that seems all sufficient, and he regains
his liberty. If there is any one law
that makes this city and State suffer
through its imperfections, it is this one.
and the conditions certainly demand
some remedy at once.
"A man must labor enough to keep a
good full stomach. A vagrant is a per-
son who does not, when he could, make
enough to support himself through his
own efforts. If a man can make a dol-
lar and a half a day and works only one
day in the week, he is not earning a
bona fide support. A man who is hungry
is of course more likely to commit a
crime than one who is well fed. If a
man works only one day in seven he
should be made to stay at home the
other six. There is nothing so con-
ducive to crime as idleness, and it is the
duty to break it up so far as our law-
makers are concerned, and it is to them
that we look for relief."
Here's our chance to see the Ever-
glades, inspect them with a critical eye
and walk right out of the darkness of
the "obfusticated" class, where we at
preset abide in sackcloth and ashes,
into the full light of glorious knowledge
on the subject of Everglades drainage.
The Fort Myers Board of Trade has
issued invitations to the newspaper men
and other distinguished citizens of Flor-
ida to be its guests on an excurrion

both Senators and the Representatives
in Congress, members of the Legisla-
ture and the State editors are included
in the invitations, and they are asked
to reash Fort Myers next Monday night,
make the trip to Lake Okeechobee the
next day, and return stuffed with
knowledge and malaria on the evening
of the 19th. If Editor Jordan, of the
Punta Gorda Herald, will agree to

ful theme, and if Bro. Jordan says the

The drainage of the Everglades has
so enthused the Governor that his ever
action tends to the attainment of this
end. The climax of inconsistency, how-
ever. was probably reached when above
his own signature, Broward adressed
personal letters to a number of the pa-
pers of the State, enclosing copy of an
editorial on Florida drainage from the
Louisiana view-point, with ths ugges-
tion that it might be published alfor in
part. Does Broward think t press
age by people who know nothing of the
A number caught at and took the bait,
too, in publishing these article just as
they were furnished ready-made for
use. A few, however, were courteous
enough to publish them, with editorial
comment, fully showing they had not
the least bearing on the Governor and
his Board's gigantic Florida scheme. It
is refreshing to note that many of
Florida's editors are not gifted to
"kissing the hand that smites," are
not worshippers of officials with mighty
powers, fawners at the feet of men be-
cause they are high officials, whether
such officials are right or wrong in pub-
lic affairs. There are a few of us in
Florida yet who do not bow down and
worship as idols those whom we have
full and good right to mistrust, and
who see through some gigantic scalhem
for wrong-doing and building up a
mighty political machine in Florida.
Some of us are still determined not to
be or become a "bump.on-a-log," even
if the "railroads and corporations do
own us soul and body, and we sell our
editorial space at so much a line, with
sentiment thrown in," as is always
charged when we oppose ohe beauties
and their schemes. A day of reckoning
is fast approaching, and we opine a
clean sweep of these powerful tricksters
will be made about two years hence.
