History of The Miami News
(1896-1987)

First Edition of The Miami Metropolis
HASF Collection
Walter Sumner Graham had not yet established himself in
Miami. Writing from his Titusville law office on March 20,

1896, Graham advised one of his Miami partners that the name
suggested by Henry Flagler for the newspaper at Miami was a
good one.



Howard Kleinberg is editor of The MiamiNews and author of the book
Miami: The Way We Were.

C. C. Chillingworth
Vice President
East Coast Publishing Company
Miami

Dear C:
Mr. Flagler suggests "Miami Metropolis." None of us
had ever thought of that, but it sounds first rate. How do
you like it? I have dropped him a line saying we shall adopt
this suggestion.
Walter S. Graham
Titusville'

Graham soon would be at the Miami settlement where a wood-
en building was to be constructed near where today's South Miami
Avenue meets the Miami River. The one-story frame building not
only would be home to his law and real-estate business Rob-
bins, Graham & Chillingworth but it also would be home to
Miami's first newspaper.
In a Deep South version of a rough little pioneer shantytown
by a clean green bay, The Miami News was born as The Miami Me-
tropolis on May 15, 1896.
(The plan was to inaugurate the newspaper about April 15, to
coordinate with the arrival of the first train into Miami, but the
wreck of the schooner Seminole with a loss of two lives and the
greater portion of the material for The Metropolis' building -
caused a 30-day delay on the project.)2
The 10-page weekly newspaper, in its initial issues, commented:
It is the first paper ever published on Beautiful Bis-
cayne Bay.
Further, said this first issue, it was,
The most southern newspaper on the mainland of
the United States, published at the most southern
railroad point in Uncle Sam's domain, and at the
most southern telegraph terminal and express of-
fice on the mainland at Marvelous Miami, the town
with over a thousand souls and the survey of the
place not yet completed.
The Metropolis was published on cream-colored newsprint.
In its first edition, it was reported that The Metropolis did not
want to imitate a paper on the Indian River, which was published
on pink newspaper, so it selected cream. It also asked its readers
what they thought of the name of the newspaper, saying it was







History of The Miami News 7
suggested "by one who could be trusted in the manner of naming
a paper."3
An inventory of Miami's businesses was listed in that first is-
sue. No other, except The Miami News, remains active today.
There was not yet a city, that being more than two months
away. Miami, on May 15, 1896, was a settlement to which Henry
Flagler had brought his railroad, where he was building a grand
hotel much on the scale of the ones he had built in Palm Beach
and St. Augustine. It was where the visionary widow Julia Tuttle
owned much of the land north of the river and where William
Brickell ran his trading post on the south bank.
It was where a young Jewish-Russian immigrant named Isi-
dor Cohen arrived in February seeking a location for a dry-goods
business, only to be told by the widow Tuttle that he would have to
wait. He made this observation in his diary of February 6, 1896:

Had an interview with Mrs. Tuttle, who is said to be the
owner of the north-side territory, in regard to renting a piece
of ground for the erection of a store building. Result very
disappointing. Must wait until land is cleared and streets laid
out, when lots will be put on sale. On declaring that I could
not wait, owing to my destitute condition, I was told to take
a job clearing land, whereupon I tried to impress this naive
lady that the last labor of this character my race had performed
was in the land of Egypt, and that it would be a violation of
my religious convictions to resume that condition of servitude.4

The Metropolis reported that it had a bid of $1 for the first
copy of the first issue of the paper. Instead, The Metropolis kept
the first copy for itself, gave the second to Tuttle, the third to Mary
Brickell. The fourth was mailed to Flagler. The fifth went to Coco-
nut Grove author Kirk Munroe, and the sixth copy was given E. L.
White, who had made the original bid of $1 for the first copy.5
(The Robbins, Graham & Chillingworth firm did not spend
much time in The Metropolis' building, which was just south of
the railroad spur that ran to the under-construction Royal Palm
Hotel. On July 17, an advertisement appeared in the paper seek-
ing to rent the office in the building formerly occupied by the law
and real-estate firm. The ad said the 12 x 24 room would be suit-
able for a barber shop, tailor shop or confectionary store.)
Walter Graham was one of Flagler's local attorneys. A native
of New Jersey, Graham also was a doctor, merchant and politician,
a Democrat as well as a newspaper editor. He and his family

Located near where today's South Miami Avenue meets the Miami
River, The Miami Metropolis shared quarters with a law office
for a short time. HASF Collection


came to Miami at Flagler's urging from Titusville, where the
firm of Robbins, Graham & Chillingworth was established.
For several months prior to publishing his first edition, Graham
talked about a newspaper, but did not do much about it. Then he
met Wesley M. Featherly, a recent arrival from Michigan and
a Republican.
Graham made Featherly his local editor; their names appear
on The Metropolis'first masthead. Featherly's disappeared a year
later, on May 21, 1897, Graham, it was reported, "was a man of
forceful opinions and the ability to express them." He was a strong
advocate of U.S. paper money being redeemable in silver as well
as gold which it was not in 1896. There was a classic split be-
tween Republicans and Democrats on that issue, and this can be
seen as a major reason for the breakup between the Democrat
Graham and Republican Featherly.
From its first issue, The Metropolis began calling on the citi-
zens of the new town to incorporate, citing that there would be
1,500 persons living here by July. Meetings were being held toward







History of The Miami News 9
that end, and legal notices were placed in The Metropolis regard-
ing the issue.
Flagler wanted Miami incorporated, and what Flagler wanted,
he usually got. The newspaper was run by Flagler's people; most
of the people in town worked for Flagler- either on the railroad or
on the hotel he was building near where the river met the bay.
On July 28, 1896, the city was incorporated. It was reported this
way in The Metropolis of July 31:
Jos. A. McDonald, Chairman of the Citizens Committee
on Incorporation, called the meeting to order in the hall over
the Lobby at 2 p.m. lastTuesday. The same being the place, day
and hour advertised in the notice of intention to incorporate.
It was announced by the chair that the law required that
two-thirds of all registered voters residing within the limits
which it was proposed to incorporate must be present before
any business could be done, and in order to ascertain if the
required number were present he directed the secretary to call
the role of the registered voters. After some delay in wait-
ing until the hall could be filled, it was ascertained that 312
voters were present, 275 being two-thirds of all registered
voters residing within the proposed limits. There were thirty-
seven more voters than the required number present. It was
then moved by W. S. Graham that the vote on the territory to
be 'incorporated, the name of the city and device for a cor-
porate seal be by acclamation. This was carried and the metes
and bounds as advertised, were adopted as the limits or
boundaries of the City of Miami and a round seal two inches
in diameter with the words City of Miami arranged in a semi-
circular form, constituting the border around the top, and
words Dade Co. Florida, around the base, the design of the
royal palm tree in an upright position in the centre of the
seal and the inscription "Incorporated 1896" inserted just
below the centre of the seal.

Thus, The Metropolis covered the birth of the city a distinc-
tion few newspapers elsewhere ever have achieved. Not only that,
but its editor Graham played a major role in the incorporation
and, that same day, was among those elected to be the first seven
aldermen of the new city.
The Metropolis appeared each Friday. Subscription rates for
the newspaper were $2 on an annual basis or five cents per issue.
The charge for a half-page advertisement for a full year was $400,
while classified ads were five cents a line.
Featherly returned to The Metropolis on April 1, 1898, when
he purchased the paper from Graham. Featherly, in turn, leased the







10 TEQUESTA

paper to E. T. Byington, a newspaperman from Georgia. In an an-
nouncement, Featherly said he had purchased the plant, business
and good will of the paper but did it only as business speculation
- as he did not have time to pursue the editing of a newspaper. Be-
sides, he maintained, "Politically the views of this paper do not meet
my own and there being no field here for a newspaper of my par-
ticular stripe, I cannot enter the field at present."
Graham, who said he was selling the paper because he could
not devote the proper care to it, returned full time to his law
practice along with partner George M. Robbins.
Despite his disdain for a Republican running a newsletter
in a Democratic town, Featherly repossessed the paper from
Byington on August 26, 1898. Byington reportedly wanted out
to pursue an agricultural endeavor. (Byington didn't spend
long in the field; he soon came back and established a news-
paper called The Miami News no relation to today's Miami
News.)
In returning to the editorship of the then small-town paper,
Featherly wrote that the publication would pursue a conserva-
tive cause but that it would not be the property of any political
party or faction. "When a party paper," he wrote, "a country
journal loses much of its scope of usefulness. People look to
the metropolitan papers largely for their political ideas."6
Wesley Featherly, along with his brother Charles, contin-
ued to publish The Metropolis from the wooden building near
the Miami River. On November 12, 1899, a second destructive fire
hit young Miami the first being on the city's first Christmas
night of 1896. The 1899 fire destroyed The Metropolis build-
ing, as well as Julia Tuttle's Miami Hotel.
Despite the severity of the loss, The Metropolis kept the
story of the fire on an inside page in its November 17 issue.
The second destructive fire in the history of Miami oc-
curred Sunday last. The first alarm was given at 1:30 and
within 30 minutes, the Hotel Miami, The Metropolis' office,
Greer's grocery, Mrs. Knapp's boarding house, machine
shop of the Flagler interests, and Hainlin's steam laundry
with their contents were in a mass of ruins.
The fire started in one of the rooms in the Hotel Miami,
where Mrs. John Smith was preparing food for Mrs. Pell who
was ill of yellow fever. A blue flame oil stove was the cause
of the fire, which when discovered was beyond control ...
The building of The Metropolis was the oldest build-







History of The Miami News 11


ing in the city at the time of its destruction, having been
built in April, 1896, as soon as possible after the railroad
reached Miami. The Hotel Miami was commenced before
The Metropolis building was started but was not completed
for many months. There were some earlier buildings then
either built upon a cheap plan shacks in other words -
which have long since disappeared. The Metropolis claimed
the honor of occupying the oldest building in the city at the
time of the fire.

(A clue as to who rented the space vacated by the Robbins,
Graham & Chillingworth firm in The Metropolis building in July
1896 can be found later in that story of the fire, where it was
reported that The Metropolis building was "occupied by The
Metropolis and Undertaker H.M. King.")
The books and subscription list of the paper were rescued as
was much of the printer's type. The files of the paper, including the
first-off-the-press inaugural issue, were lost to the flames. One
small press and a perforator were all of the machinery that could
be saved. The press was not adequate to publish a newspaper, and
within 24 hours of the loss, a message was received from the owner
of The News at West Palm Beach offering The Metropolis the use
of its plant as a temporary solution. The editor of the West Palm
Beach paper, Simpson Bobo Dean, was later to play a major role
in The Metropolis, but for the present he was a generous colleague
whose offer could not be accepted by Featherly as there was a
quarantine placed on Miami by a yellow fever epidemic.
Instead, The Metropolis'friendly rival, E. T. Byington's Miami
News, offered the use of its facilities, which the stricken paper
was glad to accept.7
Dean did perform a good deed. His office in Palm Beach had
a complete file of The Metropolis from its first issue in 1896, and
Dean gave his files of Metropolises to Featherly for posterity.
Meanwhile, The Metropolis needed a home. The undertaker
King had found new facilities in the Belcher block (today's South-
east First Street and South Miami Avenue). Facilities for The
Metropolis were located in the Chase Building (today's South-
east Second Street and South Miami Avenue)8 and a press be-
longing to C. M. Gardner, publisher of Our Sunny Land, was
used to print the newspaper.9
Within two months, on December 29, 1899, Wesley Featherly -
returning to citing the difficulty in being a Republican trying to
publish in a Democratic town sold The Metropolis to B. B.







12 TEQUESTA


Tatum, editor and manager of the Bartow Courier-Informant.
Tatum was one of three Tatum brothers who were to become
instrumental in the development, of Miami and, later, Miami
Beach. Wesley and Charles Featherly purchased a paper in Harri-
man, Tennessee,10 but Charles remained behind in Miami for
several months, handling business affairs for B. B. Tatum, whose
entry into Miami had been delayed by the yellow fever quarantine
that cut Miami from the rest of the world in October 1899. More
than 160 cases of yellow fever had been reported in the city, with
at least eight deaths.
When the quarantine was lifted on January 15, 1900, The
Metropolis was ecstatic, as evidenced by the tone of its January
19 story:

It is needless for us to state that it was with great rejoicing
our people received the announcement Monday morning
that all quarantine restrictions were removed from Miami,
that we were once more free to come and go at will. We have
waited long, weary months for this announcement hoping
against fate that each week would see our beautiful city free
of the epidemic which had so long held her in bondage. Our
people have taken the matter more philosophically than was
at first supposed could possibly be the case. When the first
scare was reported a general stampede occurred, but when
the real epidemic had fastened itself upon us, our people
deported themselves wisely and thoughtfully, as always char-
acterizes Miami citizens. Those who desired to leave the city
did so quietly and deliberately, while those who remained
accepted the position with the best grace possible. During
the epidemic many self-sacrificing acts of Christian charity
were reported, which will ever remain in the minds of our
citizens as a bright spot in the dark part of Miami's history.

B. B. Tatum lost little time in getting The Metropolis back on
track after its disastrous fire and change of ownership. With him-
self as editor and manager, he hired E. Nellie Beck away from the
Tampa Times to become his assistant editor. She was Miami's
first woman newspaper executive."
On May 15, 1900 the fourth anniversary of the founding
of Miami's first newspaper Tatum, Beck and N. L. Stafford
were granted letters incorporating the Miami Printing Company,
with a capital stock of $10,000, and purchased a large Cranston
cylinder press and other machinery and material necessary to
equip the plant for all demands.







History of The Miami News 13
In July 1900, M. F. Hetherington, who had for years con-
ducted a prosperous newspaper and printing plant of his own
in Lebanon, Ky., accepted a position as business manager of
The Metropolis, and on January 1, 1903, he purchased a portion of
the stock of the company, was elected secretary and treasurer
and made associate editor. E. Nellie Beck's name had long since
disappeared from the masthead of The Metropolis replaced
with Hetherington's on April 5, 1901.
The Georgia-born Tatum, who later in life was to become
associated with his brothers in Miami real estate activities, re-
flected the white racial attitude of the day. In an editorial after
a black man attacked a white woman in Miami, Tatum wrote:
"The deplorable circumstances of the assault upon a respectable
white woman, reported elsewhere, by a fiendish black brute,
brings home to us the question of what can be done with these
black sons of hell? All kinds of remedies have been resorted to
including hemp, tar and torch and yet it seems that it is all of no
avail . ." Further in the editorial, Tatum said that had a gang
of white men gotten their hands on the assailant, few "familiar
with the circumstances would have felt any regrets."12
Tatum's Metropolis took two important steps in 1903. It
announced, on August 21, that contracts had been let for a new,
two-story brick building to be used as the permanent home of
The Metropolis and of the job printing business of the Miami
Printing Company. It would be directly across Flagler Street
from where the new county courthouse was being built. Also
on Dec. 11, The Metropolis became a daily newspaper pub-
lishing each day but Sunday.
The Daily Metropolis (a weekly edition still was being printed
for distribution on Fridays) became an eight-page paper with
1,500 circulation and joined the Associated Press, the first Florida
newspaper to obtain that wire service.
The new Metropolis building was located at what became
72 West Flagler Street and was occupied by the time the paper
became a daily publication.
Through the years, however, The Metropolis could not shake
its image as a Flagler-run newspaper. In an editorial, Tatum com-
plained of a speech in the city which charged The Metropolis with
being owned or controlled by Henry Flagler. Tatum strenuously
denied this, charging the speaker with having a record of an
anarchist and socialist.13 Tatum editorialized that The Metropolis







14 TEQUESTA
was absolutely independent and unhampered. Yet, as late as 1949,
when Sidney Walter Martin published a biography of Flagler, he
referred to The Metropolis of July 1905 as being the "official
mouthpiece for Flagler."14
Enter Simpson Bobo Dean, the man from Palm Beach who in
1899 offered assistance and files to a Miami Metropolis burned
out of its home.
On January 7, 1905, Dean's name first appeared on the mast-
head of The Metropolis as secretary-treasurer of the newspaper.
Heatherington's name was gone. Dean was a native of Alabama
who started his newspaper career as a printer's devil on a weekly
newspaper and later worked on the Knoxville (Tenn.) Journal
& Tribune.15
Dean established the Weekly Lake Worth News in 1894, serving
the sparsely populated Lake Worth/Palm Beach area. On February
12, 1897, he began the Daily Lake Worth News from a printing
plant on Clematis Street in West Palm Beach. The paper described
itself as a seasonal publication "devoted to the society happenings
and events of interest at the Palm Beach hotels and Lake Worth
cottages." Dean published 41 issues that first season.16 He later
changed the name of the newspaper to the Palm Beach Daily News,
and held forth over that newspaper until coming to Miami in 1905.
In Lake Worth, Dean had continuing financial problems. It
was reported that he had borrowed money from Flagler and was
being pressed by the magnate for repayment.17 It was reported else-
where that Flagler was not a lender so much as he was a secret part-
ner with Dean from the beginning of publication and that fact did
not surface until 1948 when it was disclosed in a sale.18
Dean eventually sold the entire paper to the Flagler interests,
went to Miami and declared war on Flagler.19
(Ironically, the Palm Beach Daily News has survived to the pre-
sent and now is a part of Cox Newspapers as is The Miami News,
which started life as The Miami Metropolis.)
Dean crusaded for better roads and water and sewerage sys-
tems, and against illegal gambling and alcohol. A supporter of
Flagler's railroad empire when in Palm Beach, Dean turned against
the railroad in Miami, which had given preferential shipping rates
to Cuban pineapples and vegetables over South Florida products.
It finally put to rest the perception that The Metropolis still was
under the control of Flagler. In his crusade, he took full advantage
of what other newspapers were saying of the situation, as evidenced







History of The Miami News 15
by this March 17, 1910, editorial reprinted here in part:

This paper has been frequently assailed for making attacks
on the Florida East Coast Railway and the political system
that has been built up through this agency. Such assaults are
usually inspired and it is not difficult to place the source. We
have attacked only the evil that has grown out of the system.
But it is strange that the transparency of those who defend the
system cannot be seen, and stranger that the people who con-
tinue to give their votes for the men who represent the system,
when it is recognized that Florida has been hampered for years
by this incubus. The following is from the Atlanta Journal:
"Flagler is not the power in Standard Oil that he was when
he invented the famous come-back rebate system, whereby
the oil trust profited by its rivals' shipments. His name is now
synonymous with Florida, for if there is any one State owned
body and soul by a boss, it is Florida; 25 of her largest hotels,
all famous wintering places; most of her railroads; and many
acres of her land are owned by Flagler."
Dean is given much of the credit by historians for his battle
with the Florida East Coast Railway, but newspaper accounts of
the day gave equal credit to Dean's editor, Joe Hough Reese.20 (By
1909, Dean had assumed command of The Metropolis. Tatum
sold his interest in the paper to A. J. Bendle on April 20, 1909, and
Bendle a Colorado businessman who had interest in Everglades
land companies announced that he would take no part in the
management or conduct of The Metropolis, leaving that, instead,
to Dean who remained secretary-treasurer of the newspaper.)
As Reese obviously supported by Dean continued to at-
tack the railway in 1910 for what the newspaper considered to be
second-class treatment of South Florida by absentee capitalists
of the railway, a plot was hatched to hurt the newspaper.
Many of the town's leading citizens and businessmen were urged
presumably by railway people to petition The Metropolis
to cease its opposition to the railway for the good of the commun-
ity. The petition was presented to the newspaper. With 49 of the
town's leading citizens and merchants signing the March 28, 1910,
document, it was taken as a threat to the future of the newspaper.
The editors, on April 1, ran on the front page the petition and the
names of everyone who signed it under the heading: 'Business
Men Attempt to Put Quietus on Metropolis by Significant
Petition.'
The story and names set off a storm. For the next few weeks,






16 TEQUESTA
the front page of The Metropolis was jammed with stories and let-
ters of support and an occasional word of protest such as the
one from merchant William Burdine, who asked: "We wonder who
will be next to lick The Metropolis' soiled boots."21
As the petition signers found their names in public print, and
saw the backlash especially from the agricultural industry in
Dade County they backtracked. Dean won the day, and adver-
tisers and subscribers who had dropped their support of the paper
through FEC pressure came back. The railroad finally readjusted
its rates.
Never again was The Metropolis to be considered the mouth-
piece for the railroad.
Without fanfare in fact, even without an announcement -
Dean became sole owner of The Metropolis on October 17, 1914.
On that day, Bendle's name disappeared from the masthead and
only Dean's remained as Editor-Manager.
He fought against America's participation in World War I,
ably helped by his crusading writer Hattie Carpenter, who had been
principal at Miami High School but quit in a dispute with the school
board. Sales dropped as a result of Dean's opposition, but when
the U.S. declared war on Germany, Dean pledged his full support
- and members of his staff who went off to fight were retained
on the payroll, though Dean never mentioned that fact in print.
Dean fought many wars of his own in Miami. He was a spirited
editor who didn't mind printing his editorial positions on the front
page of the newspaper.
In November 1913, Dean won still another of his crusades when
Dade County voted itself into prohibition years before the rest
of the nation.
For 10 more years, Dean continued his brand of crusading
journalism for Miami's readers. But, in 1923, another newspaper
publisher James M. Cox was to arrive in Miami at the urging
of Miami Beach pioneer Carl Fisher. Cox made note of his arrival
and subsequent business deal in this passage from his 1946 auto-
biography, Journey Through My Years.

Fisher had importuned me to come to Miami. I finally did,
in 1923, and fell completely in love with the place, confident
that it would grow into a great city. Living in a hotel was al-
ways an intolerable experience for me. When I made up my
mind to spend a part of each year in Miami, I realized that to
find happiness there, I must get something to occupy my time.








History of The Miami News 17


Carl Fisher suggested that I purchase the only afternoon paper,
The Miami Metropolis, the oldest paper in the region. It was
owned by Bobo Dean. Fisher arranged a meeting for me with
Mr. Dean. We came to terms quickly and the deal was made
for cash. Before going back North in the spring I purchased
land on the Beach and had a residence erected during the sum-
mer of 1923. At that time the Nautilus Hotel and our house
were the only structures north of the Biscayne Canal.

Cox, ex-governor of Ohio and unsuccessful candidate for presi-
dent in 1920 with Franklin Roosevelt as his running mate, already
owned newspapers in Dayton and Springfield, Ohio. Both news-
papers were named The News. When he purchased The Metropolis
on April 18, 1923, the sale was reputed to be for a million dollars.

Three years before purchasing the Miami News-Metropolis, James
M. Cox was nominated for President by the Democratic Party.
Franklin D. Roosevelt was his running mate. HASFCollection







18 TEQUESTA


Best known nationally as a politician, Cox was first a journal-
ist. He began his career at the age of 20 in 1890 at the Middletown
(Ohio) Signal, published by his brother-in-law. Starting as a print-
er's devil (an apprentice in the print shop), Cox quickly moved up
to reporter, then city editor, makeup man and circulation mana-
ger of the weekly.
Cox reported a Middletown train wreck so well that he caught
the eye of the Cincinnati Enquirer, which hired him as a reporter.
He later became the political reporter, and that had much to do
with shaping young Cox's future. He quit the paper to become sec-
retary to an Ohio congressman and, with money borrowed from
that congressman, bought the Dayton Daily News in 1898.
Cox, just as was to occur with Dean a decade later in Miami,
took on the railroad and was almost wiped out as a result.22
But he had tasted politics and liked it. Cox, in 1908, succeeded
the Ohio congressman who loaned him the money for the news-
paper. He was re-elected in 1910 and was elected governor of Ohio
in 1912. He lost his seat in 1914 but regained it in 1916 and was re-
elected in 1918.
In 1920, Cox received the nomination of the Democratic Party
to be that party's candidate for president. Franklin D. Roosevelt
was chosen as his running mate. Another Ohio newspaper pub-
lisher, Warren G. Harding, won the nomination of the Republican
Party and defeated Cox.
The victorious Harding came to Miami Beach in 1920 to cele-
brate before taking office. Here, he was the guest of Carl Fisher.
Cox remained at home, tending to his newspapers until Fisher
convinced him to come to Miami in 1923, when he bought The
Metropolis.
In a two-column box on the front page announcing the purchase
of The Metropolis, Cox outlined his publishing philosophy:
The Metropolis will uphold the principles of Jeffersonian
Democracy and devote itself to the public interest. Any city,
growing as Miami is, needs a vigilant press. The public interest
must always be paramount. The function of a newspaper car-
ries a grave responsibility. It is the agency of information and
truth. Its news columns should give all sides of an issue of gen-
eral concern, regardless of the convictions which the paper
has. A journal without convictions is of little use to a com-
munity. Influence of public opinion should be sought in the
fairest manner. Either misrepresentation or suppression of
essential facts profanes the traditions of a great profession.







History of The Miami News 19
One of Cox's first moves was to change the name of the news-
paper to The Miami Daily News-Metropolis, with Metropolis in
much smaller type. (Metropolis was later dropped, as was the word
Daily.) Cox decided early that the two-story newspaper building
on West Flagler Street was not adequate to his plans and decided to
erect the structure that became Miami's most significant landmark.
Work on The Miami News Tower began on June 11, 1924, and
was reported by the paper:
Work on the 15-story office building for The Miami Daily
News began at 10 o'clock Wednesday morning, a large crew
of men being engaged in removing the pine trees on the building
site at the corner of N. Bay Shore dr. and Sixth st. As soon as
these trees are removed, a steam shovel will be put to work
at the excavation, and then actual construction work will be-
gin. Adolph Freedlund has the sub-contract for the excava-
tion. The Fuller Co. of New York, which built the First Na-
tional bank and the Nautilus hotel, has the contract for the
structure.
The Daily News building will be 15 stories high and will cost
approximately one million dollars. It will cover the entire
ground space of 125 feet frontage on the drive and 220 feet
frontage on N.E. Sixth st. The first three floors, which will be
occupied by the publishing plant, will be ready for occupancy
by December. The tower, which will be 40 feet square, will not
be finished until later in the winter. Offices in the tower will
be for rent. Surmounting the tower will be a dome which will
be flood lighted at night, and this can be seen far out to sea.
The tower will be half as high as the Washington monument.
The Daily News building will be the tallest structure in Miami.

Cox had purchased, from an undertaker, a large lot on the cor-
ner of Northeast Sixth Street and what then was called Bay Shore
Drive, soon to be broadened and renamed Biscayne Boulevard. He
engaged the New York architectural firm of Schultze & Weaver to
handle the project.
It was decided to design a building in the Spanish style described
as Plateresque. Leonard Schultze and S. Fullerton Weaver, who
had designed the Waldorf-Astoria in New York and the Nautilus
Hotel in Miami Beach, arrived at a 15-story structure topped by a
cupola that could be seen far out at sea. "The News Tower," ac-
cording to a newspaper article of the time, "derives much of its de-
sign from Giralda Tower in Seville, although the treatment of the
tall cupola on the former is more vigorous and dominating."23

Schultze & Weaver soon were to further influence Miami archi-
tecture by designing the Biltmore Hotel & Country Club in Coral
Gables and Roney Plaza Hotel in Miami Beach all strikingly
similar to The News Tower.







History of The Miami News 21
For his new building, Cox ordered a mural"symbolic of Florida
as known by the ancient and embryonic maps of the 16th cen-
tury."24 He then commissioned a poem to be written by renowned
poet Edwin Markham to be a part of the mural on the mezzanine
of the new building.25
Here once by April breezes blown
You came, 0 gallant de Leon,
Sailed up this friendly ocean stream
To find the wells of ancient dream -
The fountain by the poets sung
Where life and love are ever young.
You found it not, 0 price, and yet
The wells that made the heart forget
Are waiting here yea ever here
With touch of some immortal sphere,
For here below these skies of gold
We have forgotten to grow old -
Here in this land where all the hours
Dance by us treading upon the flowers -
(There is nothing to indicate that Gov. Cox ever saw the Gir-
.alda Tower. In his autobiography, Cox refers to only one trip to
Europe prior to the building of The News Tower. He wrote that,
in 1922, he visited Germany, England, France, Italy and Switzer-
land but he did not mention Spain.)
Cox added a Sunday edition to the newspaper on Jan. 4, 1925;
then to celebrate the opening of his stylistic newspaper plant, he
published on July 25 what then was the largest single edition of any
newspaper: 504 pages in 22 sections. Not coincidentally, the news-
paper that held the previous record was Cox's Dayton Daily News
at 256 pages.
There had been hurricanes in Miami in earlier years but not for
some time. According to weather bureau records, the last hurricane
to hit Miami was in 1906. Almost all the people living in 1926 Mi-
ami had never experienced a powerful hurricane when, on Sep-
tember 18, they were tested. The damage was huge, as first reports
in the September 18, 1926, Miami News indicated:

attended by a gale of more than 130 miles an hour velocity,

and followed by one of the most disastrous tidal waves ever
experienced on the Atlantic Coast.
Miami Beach was isolated from the mainland and no word
has been received as to the effect of the storm there. It is feared
that a monster tidal wave has swept across the entire island city.
Newspapermen crawled from Miami Beach at 3 a.m. with a
story of pounding surf, broken communication and distressed
boats. It was the last information to reach Miami.
Scores of houses in Hialeah were reported leveled by the
hurricane and under water from the overflow of the canal.
Coral Gables was cut off from all outside communication at
4:40 a.m. Saturday. Continued efforts to reach the city by wire
were impossible ...
At least 114 died and thousands were left homeless. The city,
especially along the waterfront, was flattened by the winds and tidal
surge. The Miami Daily News & Metropolis published a one-page
edition with a hand-run press on September 18 and again on Sep-
tember 19, all the way publishing hand-cranked mimeographed
bulletins through the days and nights as a public service. The Sep-
tember 20 edition of the paper was printed, as a courtesy, by The
Miami Herald, which had power restored before the News &
Metropolis.
Gov. Cox, who was in Dayton at the time, recalled in his auto-
biography that first word about the Miami disaster came from a
steamship in harbor at Mobile, Ala. "A dispatch stated that the
News Tower was leaning thirty-three and third degrees," Cox wrote.
"We fell to wondering whether, in the construction, rubber had
been used rather than steel."26
Miami, indeed, had been struck a major blow but there was a
spirit about the place that fortified the resolve of its citizens and
leaders. Out of the rubble of the hurricane, grew a greater Greater
Miami.
Joining Cox in Miami at the time of the purchase of The Metro-
polis in 1923 was his son-in-law, a man who in later years was to
become one of Miami's most influential citizens. Daniel J. Ma-
honey helped negotiate the deal with Dean. He had married Cox's
daughter, Helen Harding Cox, in 1918. She died in 1921.
Mahoney was a burly Irish-American who thrived on adven-
ture. This temperament did much to influence his reign of influence
in Miami.
He was a school dropout who worked as an engineer on a
Southern Pacific route survey team along the Mexican border and







History of The Miami News 23
later signed up as a scout for Gen. John Pershing against Pancho
Villa. During World War I, Mahoney was a lieutenant with the 89th
Division in France, then served in the occupation force as a
captain.
Marrying Cox's daughter after the war, he returned to Dayton
and worked in the paper's advertising department. He was named
national advertising manager and, in 1925, became general mana-
ger of The News League, which is the name Cox gave his group of
newspapers which now included a newspaper in Canton, Ohio.27
Mahoney built a home in Miami Beach in 1926 but spent most
of his time in Dayton until 1930 when he moved here full-time. In
1929, he was named general manager of The Miami Daily News.
Mahoney, said Cox, was one of the best public relations men and
sales executives in the country. While promoting advertising and
circulation sales with his paper, he also promoted the community
and played a key role in many local institutions such as the Uni-
versity of Miami, the Greater Miami Crime Commission and many
charitable organizations.
Cox and Mahoney soon had a tiger by the tail. Mobster Al Ca-
pone bought a house on Palm Island. The paper began a campaign
to run Capone out of town.
That crusade included a wave of front page editorials aimed at
the gangster, such as this one of April 21, 1930, which began:
Al Capone, with all his aliases, has arrived at Miami Beach.
Except for a temporary restraining order which came from the
United States court, he would have been met at the state line,
under orders from the governor of the state and transported
north. For the time at least, Governor Carlton is halted in his
efforts to remove a person designated by him as an "undesir-
able."
There is no surprise in Capone's defying the spiritual sense
of the people of Florida. He laughs at law, he gives it no respect;
through the organized forms of criminal operation he has with
one exception escaped, up until this day, anything beyond ar-
rest or detention upon suspicion ..
Cox and Mahoney had prevailed upon the governor to stop Ca-
pone at the state line but found they had no legal reason to keep
him from entering Florida.
Mahoney went to work on Capone through daily front page
editorials. Mahoney reported that he began receiving telephone
calls asking if he would like to be measured for a coffin.
"I would like to meet at any hour at any place the man who







24 TEQUESTA
thinks he's big enough to put me in it," Mahoney would respond.28
One night, Mahoney discovered he was at the same party as Ca-
pone. "Get that bum out of here or I'm leaving," he announced.
Capone was asked to leave.
Cox wrote that he was offered $5 million for the paper and that
there was no doubt in his mind that Capone interests were involved.
He refused the offer.29 The governor is supposed to have told the
Capone mouthpiece, "If you want to buy The News, you can get
it for five cents on any street corner."
Cox's newspaper continued to pursue Capone but the mobster
lived the rest of his days here.
The year 1939 brought the newspaper its first Pulitzer Prize, the
Gold Medal for public service.30 A campaign, begun in 1937 against
three city commissioners who had taken over city hall and were
promoting their own pet projects and making jobs for their camp
followers, finally bore fruit in 1938 with the recall of the trio.
The war years just ahead, however, were to forever alter Miami.
Before war's end, Greater Miami literally was a beehive of mili-
tary activity, stretching from training schools on Miami Beach to
operations at the downtown seaport, in Opa-locka, at Dinner Key,
at Chapman Field on Old Cutler Road, at a massive blimp base in
Richmond and at the University of Miami.
The war pinch was being felt at The Miami Daily News. Not
only were the men and women of the newspaper off to war, but ma-
terials were hard to come by. In December 1943, The Miami Daily
News introduced a nine-column wide news page, designed to cut
down on the number of pages needed to produce the paper.31
The immediate post-war years also brought a time for another
Miami News crusade. Miami, now with a population of 400,000,
was faced with the legacy of Capone and his cronies: the S&G Syn-
dicate. The syndicate was into casinos, bookmaking and police
bribery.
Dan Mahoney and The News started roaring like a bull and were
instrumental in setting up the Greater Miami Crime Commission
under ex-FBI agent Dan Sullivan. "When The News kept doing
stories about the mob," recalled Sullivan, "officials on the Beach
started worrying it was keeping the tourists away, so city commis-
sioners went to The News building and complained. Mahoney was
a pretty forthright guy. He told them to go to hell."32
U.S. Sen. Estes Kefauver soon entered the scene with investi-
gation into organized crime in the country, His first stop was Mi-







History of The Miami News 25

ami and it spelled the end of the S&G Syndicate in 1950.
There were many in those days who thought Mahoney was a
heavy-handed autocrat. It was he, not the paper, who picked the
political candidates. "I don't think he was an autocrat," said James
Cox, "When he wanted something he'd get it, though. He didn't
brook opposition. He was a slugger. The Tyrant of the Tower they
used to call him,
"But, God knows, the town in those days really needed some-
one to run it."33
Cox died on July 15, 1957. His newspaper lamented the loss on
its front page the next day.

James M. Cox, owner of The Miami News and an elder
statesman of the nation died last night at his home in Dayton,
Ohio. He was 87.
For more than half a century, Cox had been a prominent
man in American life. He was a member of Congress, was three
times the governor of Ohio and in 1920, he was the Democratic
candidate for President.
It was in the 1920 campaign that Cox, agreeing with Presi-
dent Woodrow Wilson that the League of Nations was neces-
sary to preserve world peace, became the premier advocate of
the principles which a generation later led to the creation of the
United Nations.
Beginning as a young man in 1898, he created a group of
newspapers which eventually included The Miami Daily News,
the Dayton Daily News, the Dayton Journal Herald, the At-
lanta Journal, the Atlanta Constitution, the Springfield (Ohio)
Sun and the Springfield (Ohio) News.
He was active in the publishing of his newspapers until he
suffered a stroke five days ago. He maintained a home at 4358
North Bay Road, Miami Beach.

Prior to his passing, Cox already had set in motion the building
of a new home for the paper on Northwest Seventh Street, the old
Tower no longer being able to handle the growth of the paper.34
On October 20, 1957, The News staff moved in to its new
building. By this time, the paper had a new editor, a Georgia boy
with a crew cut and a permanently wry smile, named William
Calhoun Baggs. It was he who changed the name of the paper from
Miami Daily News to its present name, The Miami News.
Baggs plunged into the civil rights crusade, along with Rev.
Theodore Gibson and Elizabeth Virrick. It is reported, but never
admitted, that Baggs pressured major businesses in the community







26 TEQUESTA
to commit to hiring exact numbers of blacks for better than menial
chores and that Baggs kept those pledges under lock and key in his
desk drawer, calling upon the businesses every once in a while to
honor their obligations.
The Pulitzer Committee was to honor The Miami News again
in 1959 when it chose reporter Howard Van Smith's series on the
plight of South Florida's migrant workers for the national report-
ing award.35
The years of Fidel Castro also were at hand and, with it, came
the Cuban Missile Crisis. It led to the paper's third Pulitzer Prize,
for international reporting in 1962.36 News of the Russian missile
buildup was first broadcast to the world by The Miami News, de-
spite guarded denials from Washington. Eventually, the adminis-
tration made it public.
As the world sat breathless, wondering if the Russians would
back down, Baggs received a telephone call he was never to reveal
from whom and loped into the city room to get into print the fact
that the Russians had, indeed, backed down. It scooped the State
Department by an hour. When Time Magazine pressed Baggs to
reveal his source, he grinned that lopsided grin and said: "A rose-
ate spoonbill told me."37
As The Daily News staff worked from its new building on the
banks of the Miami River, the News Tower was deserted; it was
dubbed "the dowager of the boulevard," by one journalistic ob-
server. Soon, however, there was to be a change in Miami a
change so severe that it not only changed the image of the tower
but of the entire city as well.
In 1960, Cuban refugees fleeing Fidel Castro began pouring in-
to Miami. The temporary processing center at Miami International
Airport could not handle the volume and a new center was sought.
That center turned out to be "the dowager of the boulevard."
On June 20, 1962, life returned to Gov. Cox's tower. Reported
The Miami News that day:
The old Miami News Tower woke up today.
After almost five years of silence where presses once roared
and typewriters rattled, the Tower was full of human voices
and human activity.
With a new name Freedom Tower the historic build-
ing will begin a new and even better life Monday.
It will become headquarters for the Cuban Refugee Center.
Nearly 3,000 penniless refugees from Fidel Castro's Cuba will
come there daily in search of help, and will find it.







History of The Miami News 27
The building that Cox built after a tower in Spain was now a
bastion of liberty for those who spoke Spanish.
The first four floors of the building were leased by the U. S.
Department of Health, Education and Welfare. Each month, hun-
dreds of new refugees arrived at the Tower for processing. They
got there either through the Freedom Airlift, or on leaky boats -
much as did Haitians who began following the Cubans to our shores
a decade later.
It is estimated that between 1962 and 1974, a total of 463,854
refugees passed through the Freedom Tower.
(The building originally had been sold by The Miami News in
1957 to a New York real estate investor for $1.25 million. The in-
vestor, Irving Maidman, at the time also owned three hotels in New
York.38 He planned to turn the News Tower into an office building,
but did not. Through the years, ownership of the Freedom Tower
has passed through many hands.)
Meanwhile, in 1963, Dan Mahoney passed away while under-
going surgery in New York. He was succeeded by James M. Cox,
Jr., son of the founder of the newspaper league.39
Three years later, the paper signed an agreement with the Miami
Herald Publishing Company whereby the publishing company
would print, distribute, sell advertising and promote The Miami
News. The paper moved out of its home on the Miami River and
into the Miami Herald building on July 29, 1966.
It followed, by a few months, The Miami News' fourth Pulitzer
Prize, awarded to Don Wright for editorial cartooning.40 Wright,
who started at the paper as a copy aide and subsequently was a
photographer, photo editor and cartoonist, became a nationally-
acclaimed cartoonist and is widely syndicated.
Fate dealt the paper and the community a cruel blow, when on
January 7, 1969, Baggs died at the age of 48. Exhausted by years of
battling for civil rights and against the American presence in the
Vietnam War he twice visited Hanoi as an unofficial representa-
tive of the U.S. government4' Baggs succumbed to pneumonia.
In 1974, James M. Cox, Jr., passed away and was succeeded
as publisher by Daniel Mahoney, Jr., son of the former publisher.42
Young Mahoney had been publisher of The Dayton Daily News
and came to Florida to oversee both The Miami News and Cox's
newspapers in West Palm Beach.

28 TEQUESTA
News, however, Charles Glover, then president of Cox News-
papers, selected David Kraslow, chief of the Cox Washington
Bureau, to be publisher of the paper in 1977.43 For Kraslow, it was
a return home.
A graduate of the University of Miami, he began his newspaper
career at The Miami News in 1948 as a sports writer, later moving
on to The Miami Herald, Los Angeles Times and Washington Star
before accepting the Cox Washington job in 1974.
In the period from 1976, The Miami News was redesigned into
one of the nation's most exciting formats, truly modular. Mean-
while, awards continued to pour in for the newspaper. In 1980, Don
Wright received his second Pulitzer Prize for editorial cartooning.44
In May 1986, The Miami News celebrated its 90th anniversary.
With the exception of the Florida East Coast Railway, which
opened the town in April 1896, the newspaper is the longest con-
tinuing business in Miami.

"Watch Miami:"

The Miami Metropolis and the
Spanish-American War


By Thomas F. Fleischmann

Fought in 1898, the Spanish-American War marked the ar-
rival of the United States as a world power. Few institutions
celebrated this event more than the print media, especially the
New York World and the New York Journal. During the three
years preceding the outbreak of hostilities, these tabloids led the
way in arousing a national mood of militarism through the tech-
niques of sensationalism and yellow journalism.'
However, not all newspapers followed the lead of the nation-
al press. Founded on May 15, 1896, more than two months be-
fore the city incorporated, The Miami Metropolis was one such
journal. It was an eight page weekly published Fridays at five
cents a copy. Walter S. Graham and Wesley M. Featherly were
the paper's first editors and publishers whose policy was to boast
of Miami's weather and location as a means to boost the city
and its commercial expansion.2 Preoccupied with his insurance
business, Featherly quickly leased the paper to Edward Bying-
ton, who became its manager and editor. Byington also saw the
newspaper as an important factor in Miami's future, centering
primarily on commercial and social growth. This practice was
not uncommon for nineteenth century frontier tabloids and their
editors.3




Thomas F. Fleischmann is currently on active duty with the United
States Navy stationed in Miami. He recently received a second Masters
Degree in History from the University of Miami.






32 TEQUESTA
This study will analyze The Miami Metropolis' coverage of
one event, the Spanish-American War, as a case study of the
nature of the newspaper and how it reflected the aspirations of
the recently established city.4 The Spanish-American War offers
not only an excellent opportunity to study the tone of the news-
paper and the new city but also to observe how a major nation-
al event affected Miami. The war caused Byington, The Metro-
polis, and the city to seize their first real chance to boost Miami
nationally. It provoked patriotic excitement along with fear of
invasion, and an opportunity to enhance the city's growth and
development. The Metropolis recognized Miami's location and
port as important factors in playing a dominant role in the
Caribbean during and after the struggle.
From 1896 to 1898, The Metropolis paid little heed to the
Cuban rebellion or the possibility of war with Spain. This lack
of attention was typical. Historian William J. Schelling discov-
ered that Florida's major newspapers underestimated the extent
of the problem in Cuba while believing that war was unthink-
able. Fearful Floridians believed that war would jeopardized
the prosperity they had experienced throughout the 1890s. They
also believed that the United States would annex Cuba, thereby
creating economic rivalry in agriculture and tourism. He con-
cluded that Florida's newspapers did not support the conflict
until war was inevitable and until the Teller Amendment, dis-
claiming any intention on the part of the United States to an-
nex Cuba, passed.5
As recently as five weeks before the outbreak of hostilities,
in April 1898, The Metropolis predicted there would be no war
with Spain. It based its belief on the fact that Spain appeared
to have little money or credit, few men, and had been humiliated
by the United States too often not to meet its demands, which
included freedom for Cuba, an indemnity for the loss of the bat-
tleship Maine, and a pension for the survivors of those killed. The
paper felt that a show of force and the appearance of a few
warships in Havana harbor would get the compliance the U.S.
desired. Locally, there was fear that if war came, Miamians
would be attacked, not by invaders but by Spanish gunboats
which would use Miami as their target.6
Several weeks later war seemed inevitable. The Metropolis
realized that Miami's geographical liability could also be an







The Miami Metropolis and the Spanish-American War 33
asset. "In the event of war between this country and Spain," the
journal noted, "there can be no doubt Miami will play an im-
portant part."7 Consequently, the eight-page tabloid began
boasting the significance of Miami as a supply station for both
the Army and Navy and an embarkation point and coaling
station for the latter. Repeatedly, The Metropolis listed Miami's
advantages: the most southern point by rail, closer than Tampa
or Jacksonville to the seat of war, a harbor safely landlocked
and sufficiently deep, with direct and quick railroad connection to
the coal mines of Alabama. It reasoned, therefore, that "Very
early in the fray the Navy Department will recognize its superior
advantages as a base of supplies,"8 and recommended, "that
a regular army post should be established and suitable fortifica-
tions erected here without delay."9
Not surprisingly, The Metropolis'perspective echoed that of the
city's and newspaper's chief benefactor, Henry M. Flagler. A
founding partner of Standard Oil, Flagler devoted the last thirty
years of his life to developing Florida's East Coast. His chief in-
struments were his railroad, the Florida East Coast Railway, and
a chain of luxury hotels. For Miami, the coming of Flagler's rail-
road and construction of the Royal Palm Hotel signaled the
beginning of the city's growth and expansion. When war was
declared, Flagler, like other railroad men in Florida, saw an
opportunity to increase the value of his developments at gov-
ernment expense.10 And The Metropolis expressed in public what
Flagler uttered in private." In a letter written by the industrial
magnate to Senator Platt, Flagler described the benefits which
Miami could provide the government if troops were stationed
in the city.
In my judgment, Miami would be a preferable point for a
large number of troops . At Miami, we have an
inexhaustible supply of purest water . I have built an
iron water tower at Miami, 120 ft. in height. On the south
side of the Miami River, across from the town, there is an
unbroken stretch of five miles of bay front most admirably
adapted for camping purposes. A water pipe could very
easily be extended to the camp, and thus an abundance of
pure water be supplied. The drainage is excellent, and for
the comfort of officers and men, they can depend upon the
constant sea breeze. I don't believe there is a pleasanter
location on the Atlantic Coast, south of Bar Harbor, to
spend the summer in than Miami.12







34 TEQUESTA


The possibility of being left out of the preparation for war
caused anxiety among many Florida communities. Signal sta-
tions for lookout and early warning programs were being erected
along the east coast of Florida, but only as far south as Cape
Canaveral. The paper objected, believing that signal stations
should be constructed as far south as Miami because of its
proximity to Havana and the potential need for protection. The
Metropolis' attitude toward security was "better safe than
sorry." "We do not anticipate an excursion from the Spanish,"
the journal noted, "but at the same time the unexpected often
happens and it is well to be prepared for it."13 Further, in its ef-
forts to obtain its objectives, The Metropolis resorted to reprint-
ing articles and excerpts supporting this viewpoint in the Jack-
sonville Times-Union and Citizen, a newspaper in which Flagler
also had an interest. In the matter of Miami's potential role
as a supply and embarkation center the Times-Union and Citi-
zen stated, "Miami unquestionably should be this point, on ac-
count of proximity."14 It added, "The rail routes via Jacksonville
to Port Tampa and Miami are open, and there is plenty of good
coal up in Alabama."15
Simultaneously, The Metropolis discovered that the war
scare, Miami's location, and its real or imagined apprehen-
sions about the Spanish could mean geographic, demographic,
and financial growth. As fleeing refugees from Key West landed
in Miami, the newspaper expressed concern for their safety and
continued to hope that war could be avoided.'6
On April 15, 1898, The Metropolis reported that construction
of fortifications had commenced on Brickell Point overlooking
Biscayne Bay. A battery of four large guns consisting of two
ten-inch and two eight-inch mounts were to be installed in order
to protect and guard Miami's harbor entrance. The Metropolis
suggested that a gunboat or two and one or more torpedo boats
might also be stationed in the bay as additional protection.17
The War Department, however, felt that the gun emplacement
was adequate security.1' Sarcastically, Byington, the editor,
observed that, "The War Department is evidently in need of a
revised map of Florida."19
By this time though, the press approached hysteria over
Spanish preparations to ravage Miami and the countryside in
search of provisions, and The Metropolis issued a call to arms.20







The Miami Metropolis and the Spanish-American War 35
Spain had to obtain supplies from somewhere, and consequent-
ly, The Metropolis noted, "her war ships can come near enough
to send a few hundred men in small boats on some dark night to
pillage stores, carrying off provisions, and do other damage."21
A well-equipped home guard, the paper theorized, would be of
valuable service during such a time and therefore should be or-
ganized immediately. The community, in turn, responded by
forming two local militia groups, the "Miami Minute Men" and
the "Miami Rifles," containing 100 and 63 men, respectively.22
Apparently, the paper reasoned that if the War Department
was not going to protect them, they would protect themselves.
When war came on April 25, 1898, the War Department an-
nounced that it had selected Tampa as its primary logistical
site in the Caribbean because of its harbor and railroad facili-
ties, a decision The Metropolis was quick to call short-sighted.
Annoyed by the choice, the paper wondered how Tampa could
be chosen over Miami, when Miami offered itself willingly to
the government during this critical time. Discarding the notion
that Miami was jealous of its sister city, The Metropolis instead
insisted that the city took pride in Tampa's achievement. The
Metropolis, however, did lament, "the focus which has been
drawn upon Tampa, and the utter disregard which has been
shown for Miami is difficult to understand."23
As if to point to the faultiness of the government's choice and
the advantages overlooked, The Metropolis reiterated Miami's
salient features. Again and again, it noted that in terms of
transportation and location the city contained an ample rail-
way which placed the city one hundred miles closer to Key West
than Tampa and a deep harbor which was viable and feasible
as demonstrated by the established steamship line connection
with the island city. Miami's climate was an ideal spot for a
camp because it was the healthiest summer point in the South
with an unlimited supply of pure water. These valuable aspects
alone, the paper felt, made it imperative that the authorities
reconsider the southeast coast of Florida for a military camp.24
The pride of Miamians and The Metropolis was not the only
thing smarting from the War Department's snub; so were their
pocketbooks. Byington editorialized that there were good times,
"By reason of the massing of troops at Tampa the merchants of
the city are reaping a rich harvest."25 Troop expenditures, gov-







36 TEQUESTA


ernment purchases, and an influx of visitors which necessitated
the opening of its winter hotels, allowed thousands in profits to
be made by Tampa's businessmen.26 This effrontery weighed
heavily upon The Metropolis and the city, particularly since they
believed that Miami possessed advantages equal, if not superior,
to Tampa's from the standpoint of location, hotels, water, and
climate. However, Miami, "had seen nothing of war prepara-
tion beyond the location of small guns at Brickell's point.""7 In-
dignantly, the editor declared, "We are patriotic all right, but
when this near to the seat of war it would be more satisfying to
have some of the recognition which is naturally to fall to us."28
In the meantime, the biggest thrill that Miami received was the
arrival of Spanish prisoners-of-war as they came from the front
and were transferred northward for confinement. One of the
more memorable of these occasions occurred when Colonel Cor-
tijo, reputed son-in-law of Captain-General Valeriano Weyler,
commander of the Spanish troops in Cuba, arrived during the
week of May 9 as part of an exchange for two New York World
correspondents held captive by the Spanish in Cuba. The Metro-
polis lost no time in public relations when the Colonel was forced
to remain overnight because of a missed steamship connection
to Key West. The colonel and his entire entourage were comfort-
ably provided for and given a tour of the city with the result that
they, "expressed themselves as being much pleased with Mi-
ami."29 At approximately the same time the army sent Briga-
dier General James Wade to study Miami as a possible camp
site, but quickly rejected the city for reasons unexplained by The
Metropolis, even though the paper enthusiastically predicted
that, "Nothing has yet been given out as to what will be done in
this matter, but the indications are that several large commands
will be ordered here within a week."3' This setback did not dis-
courage the paper from launching another offensive to obtain
more war preparation or troops.
The paper reiterated what the government could find in
Miami:
Excellent camping grounds. Pure Water. The softest air
on earth. A healthful climate. Good bathing facilities. Ex-
cellent sanitary arrangements. No malaria. No fevers.
No mosquitoes. Plenty of fire wood. A deep water channel.
Good railroad facilities. The biggest and best dock in
Florida.3'







The Miami Metropolis and the Spanish-American War 37
Everything was here and available except Spaniards. Anxious to
curry favor with the government, The Metropolis averred: "If Uncle
Sam doesn't see what he wants let him ask for it."32
Additionally a new endeavor was found for Miami. In June dis-
cussion began over the possibility of transferring the prize depot
for captured ships from Key West to either Savannah or Charles-
ton. This became necessary because of harassment of prisoners on
board detained ships by the Cuban populace. One way to end this
abuse and prevent further trouble would be to move the prize de-
pot. Not missing an opportunity or taking the chance of being ig-
nored, The Metropolis interjected, "We beg to interrupt the pro-
gress of the row with the suggestion that as a prize depot, Miami
would be better than either Savannah or Charleston, and that if
Key West is to be abandoned Miami should be chosen in its stead."33
Secondly, the paper introduced efficiency as an argument for
Miami, Taking note of the postal problems at Tampa, the paper
commented that the same would occur here unless the government
took action by forwarding additional postal clerks if and when
soldiers would be stationed in Miami.3 However, if the govern-
ment had the foresight to do so then The Metropolis felt that their
postmaster would have little difficulty in handling the task.35
Meanwhile, a second inspection of Miami was underway by
General Lawton as a possible site for troops.36 After spending a
day in "Marvelous Miami," General Lawton drafted a more favor-
able report than that of General Wade. This second tour was
prompted because, as the paper saw it, the government recognized
the value of Miami's geographical location and decided that it
would be prudent to go over the ground a little more thoroughly.37
The Metropolis now revealed what it felt were the reasons why Mi-
ami was rejected in the first place: Secretary of War Russell Alger
had heard rumors of mosquitoes, bad water, and fever.38 But the
presence of such maladies were dismissed by the paper stating that
a physician was sent who, "found absolutely no fever here of any
kind and he pronounced the water good," and, "The mosquito
problem was looked into and it was found that there were no mos-
quitoes here."39 The paper hoped that because of the differences
between the first and second report troops would be located in
Miami shortly.40
The Metropolis had figured right. Troops of the Seventh Army
Corps began arriving the following Friday, June 24, 1898. They







38 TEQUESTA


J-~


There were 2,000 people living in Miami on June 24, 1898, when
the troops of the Seventh Army Corp began arriving. Within seven
days their number reached 7,500. HASF Collection


consisted of two brigades of volunteers comprising six regiments.
The First brigade was composed of the First Texas, First Alabama,
and First Louisiana while the Second brigade was composed of
the Second Texas, Second Alabama, and Second Louisiana. These
infantry regiments were transported by rail, arriving at the rate of
one thousand a day until they numbered 7,500, quite a number
considering Miami's population stood at 2,000.41 Assured a week
earlier that the soldiers would arrive, the paper now came out slug-
ging at what it considered a severe oversight from the beginning:
"The truth is that Miami should have been selected in the first place,
instead of Tampa, over which we have every advantage in the mat-
ters of location, healthfulness, good water, and freedom from the
pests which afflict most other places."42
Once the troops settled, they discovered that Miami was far
from idyllic. Studies have shown that the soldiers experienced an
uncomfortable, difficult and even violence-plagued tour. Various







The Miami Metropolis and the Spanish-American War 39
reasons accounted for their unpleasant stay. Some were due to the
army's logistical problems and others to Miami itself. Supply short-
ages were a constant problem. Shortages of cooking items, camp
equipment, improper uniforms, missed pay days, and irregular
rations made the soldiers angry and unhappy.43
Soldier displeasure was compounded by the partially completed
camp site and their enlistment in clearing the land in addition to
their military training duties. Nearly sixty years after the encamp-
ment, Sgt. Charley H. Carr of Company F, First Texas, recalled
that he, "cleared a lot of land for Henry Flagler when Miami was
only a depot, a hotel and a jungle."44 As if this situation was not bad
enough, the soldiers experienced unhealthy water, miserable
weather, and a growing sick list. Ill soldiers received poor treatment
due to inadequate medical supplies. Mrs. Harlan Trapp, a Coco-
nut Grove pioneer, reminisced: "I was glad to mend garments and
gave them all we had for an improvised hospital across the road."45
Not surprisingly, rowdyism became a problem, and the scarcity
of recreational facilities and activities needed to occupy soldiers
in their off-duty hours did little to alleviate trouble. As Donna
Thomas in "Camp Hell," inferred, Miami's chief contribution to
this predicament and an added source of disillusionment for the
troops was the city's complete lack of facilities needed to sustain a
military camp.46 The reality contrasted sharply with The Metro-
polis' comment during the first week that, "They're all pleased with
Miami."47
Reading The Miami Metropolis, one would not realize the sense
of dissatisfaction felt by many camped here. Only through a care-
ful perusal can one distinguish the change in tone from enthusiasm
to defensiveness. During the first several weeks of Camp Miami,
the local press appeared only interested in what the troops meant
to the city, the business community and the diversions provided
to the troops during their off-duty hours. The paper literally bub-
bled with exuberance as it claimed that a "Report says that the de-
posits in the Bank of Bay Biscayne have increased over $55,000
since the coming of the troops. Business of all kinds has more than
doubled. The merchants can hardly get goods fast enough."48
Distractions from the loneliness and rigors of camp life were
supplied by local groups and institutions, and the Army. The swim-
ming pool of the Royal Palm Hotel, Miami's major hostelry, was
opened to the soldiers. The Young Men's Christian Association







40 TEQUESTA
put up tents where soldiers could read and write letters or play
checkers or backgammon. The First Texas and First Louisiana
erected booths for the purpose of reading and writing. The Second
Texas even organized a band to entertain the troops and Miami-
ans. Military canteens were opened to provide soft drinks and per-
sonal necessities such as soap, razors, and tobacco. Also, local
pastors and churches attempted to assist regimental chaplains in
their moral advising and counselling duties. However, these at-
tempts proved insufficient because of the difficult tour that the sol-
diers were experiencing.
Soldiers found other means to distract themselves in their off-
duty hours. Sgt. Carr remembered mischievously that on July 4,
1898, "He and a few buddies took their rifles, 'borrowed' a boat,
and went up the Miami River to shoot alligators."49 Others swan
naked in the bay, spent time on the beach or practiced their marks-
manship by shooting coconuts out of trees.50 While these pranks
were harmless, other attempts to alleviate boredom proved to be
dangerous to Miami's black residents.
J. K. Dorn, a Miami pioneer, wrote of harassment of black Mi-
amians by Company L of Texas over the course of several days.
It started one afternoon when two white women came across a
black man coming down a sidewalk. Instead of stepping off the
walk and allowing the women to pass, the black continued on
course forcing them to move aside. This scene was witnessed by
a couple of Company L soldiers who reacted with rage. They
grabbed the man, beat him, and attempted to lynch him on a near-
by tree. Some officers, however, were able to prevent the murder.51
That evening, soldiers from Company L marched into the black
section of Miami and began shooting out every kerosene lamp
found burning. This action caused blacks to evacuate to Coconut
Grove, a community five miles to the south. Without black labor,
Dorn recalled, white Miamians found it difficult to operate their
restaurants, hotels, and stores, "so we sent a squad to Coconut
Grove and promised them they would be protected, so they returned
and by eleven o'clock were working again."52 The next night soldiers
from Company L went north a mile outside the city limits to Billy
Woods Saloon where liquor was sold and blacks were permitted
to drink separately. The soldiers went into the saloon and raised
a ruckus before returning to camp.53
The most outrageous act occurred on July 23, 1898. That eve-







The Miami Metropolis and the Spanish-American War 41
ning Virgil H. Duncan, a private in Company M, First Texas Regi-
ment, shot and killed Sam Drummer, a black cook, in the middle
of a public street. The incident began in a crowded store when
Drummer brushed against a white woman while attempting to
pass here in a narrow aisle. According to The Metropolis, "Duncan
seems to have had cause to regard this occurrence as intentional
rather than accidental."54 He became enraged and threatened
Drummer but did nothing until the black completed his business,
walked out of the store and into the street. Duncan followed Drum-
mer and several seconds later fired four shots into him killing him
instantly. At this point, "Lieutenant T. S. Smythe rode up on horse-
back, and having seen what had occurred, disarmed Duncan and
sent him under guard to camp."55 A coroner jury exonerated Dun-
can, ruling that, "Drummer came to his death by an unknown."s5
Next, the army had its turn. A General Court Martial was held
charging Duncan with first degree murder. Specifically,

In that he did, in time of war, with premeditation and design
to effect the death of one Levi Drummer, a citizen of the United
States of America, unlawfully and with malice aforethought,
kill the said Drummer, by shooting him to death with a pistol
or revolver. This at Miami, Florida on the 23rd day of July,
1898.57
Without explanation, the court found Duncan not guilty, released
him from confinement, and returned him to duty.
Nevertheless, financial and commercial growth remained a pri-
mary focus of The Metropolis. The first pay day for the troops on
'July 21, 1898 attracted considerable attention. Nearly $80,000 was
paid to the soldiers. One regiment received $40,000 because it had
not been paid since May 1st.58 The Metropolis eagerly watched
and followed the money as it went to businesses, "Any one passing
through the streets last night could not have any doubt about yes-
terday being pay day. The cold drink stand reaped a rich harvest,
and those that had eatables for sale filled their coffers with the filthy
luchur,"59 Accordingly, Miami's banks and post office had banner
days, as over $3,700 passed into the money order department,
while the understaffed express office simply could not keep up
with the business.60 Evidently, many soldiers saved or sent money
home to their families. In typical Horatio Alger fashion the paper
moralized that the boy who saved his money or sent it home to as-
sist his family was a prince.61 Noting one boy in particular, who







42 TEQUESTA
sent all but three dollars of his pay to his mother in Louisiana, The
Metropolis predicted that, "That boy will, bye and bye, make his
mark in the world."62
On the other hand the hardships of the men were minimized
by the paper: "Despite hard drilling and the general disagreeable-
ness of soldier life, the boys are enjoying their stay in Miami. Some
of them spend almost the whole of their spare time on the bay."63
But by the third week and throughout the remainder of the en-
campment, The Metropolis hinted at an undercurrent of problems
endured by them. July heat prompted a change in drill hours and
the necessity of restricting soldiers to camp between the hours of
11:00 A.M. to 3:00 P.M. as a means of keeping them out of the
sun during mid-day.64 Nevertheless, The Metropolis felt that, "A
three hour's steady drill in the hot sun is a good test of the ability
of the troops to stand hard service in a tropical climate. This is what
one company did yesterday and we are told not a man fell out."65
Sanitation was a problem from nearly the beginning. Of par-
ticular nuisance was the disposal of human waste, which was the
major source of disease and death within the camp.66 Soldiers were
advised that Miami was healthful and every precaution should be
taken to keep it so, warning that, "It is hot weather and garbage de-
cays rapidly filling the air with disease germs."67 Obviously, this
admonishment was not enough since two weeks later The Metro-
polis announced that the Sanitary Committee had appointed a
new sanitary inspector citing that, "There has been a great deal of
just complaint in regard to the general sanitary condition of the
town, also of the dumping of garbage in the north portion of the
city.""' The inspector was authorized to stop illegal dumping of
garbage in the northern end of the city and placed in charge of see-
ing to it that the area was cleaned and stayed that way. Along with
these responsibilities, he was empowered to condemn spoiled fruits
and vegetables being sold by grocers and vendors.
Though the retailing of liquor was not practiced in Miami, al-
cohol abuse and alcohol related problems plagued the city and
the soldiers. The organization of a local chapter of the Women's
Christian Temperance Union (WCTU) and its call in The Metropolis
for help from local churches supports this conclusion. Further,
the Union requested a meeting with women and ministers in order
to enlarge its working force by forming an auxiliary. The
W.C.T.U.'s expressed aim was to work for the comfort and best
interest of the soldiers camped in Miami.69







The Miami Metropolis and the Spanish-American War 43

Nightly church gatherings and revivals were a clue that morale
was a problem. Miamians were scolded for their lack of concern
for the moral and spiritual welfare of the soldiers. Some system
had to be devised to ensure that at least one chaplain or pastor
would be present each evening to preach or talk to the men. These
meetings were felt to be a source of encouragement for the soldiers
to do right and to help them through a hard day.70
This attitude of concern shifted to one of defensiveness when
on July 29, 1898, The Metropolis revealed that Secretary of War,
Russell Alger, had dispatched General Fitzhugh Lee, command-
ing the Seventh Corps, to investigate incidents of sickness in Camp
Miami. A week earlier, the paper reported that besides measles and
mumps there were no serious illnesses.71 However, on the 29th, it
reversed itself while defending Miami:
There are quite a number of cases of sickness among the sol-
diers. The great majority of these are cases of measles, for
which Miami is in no wise responsible. The other cases are ty-
phoid fever and a variety of minor ailments for none of which
this climate is responsible. Our own citizens are enjoying the
very best of health.72

According to the newspaper this investigation was prompted by
an inquiry by the governor of Texas to the Secretary of War Alger
concerning the condition of the Texas troops at Camp Miami. The
Secretary responded by ordering General Lee to Miami to exam-
ine the situation first hand, instructing him to move the troops
north if illness prevailed to an unusual degree.73 Apparently, the
general did not like what he saw, for on August 1, 1898, General
Order No. 37 was issued detailing the troops to Jacksonville. The
soldiers began breaking camp on the following day.74
The Metropolis should not have been completely surprised by
the situation. It had a point of contact within the local chain of
command and had become aware of the possible departure. The
paper admitted as much in its July 22nd issue, noting: "We met a
soldier with whom we have become quite well acquainted and he
said, 'I am awful sorry but we have received marching orders. The
7th corps is to be consolidated at Jacksonville.'"75 Obviously,
what became the immediate concern of the paper was not the
pullout of the troops and loss of business but the reasons why. The
army ostensibly removed the soldiers because of widespread sick-
ness and the general unhealthfulness of the region. Circulation of







44 TEQUESTA
such accusations was bad publicity which could hold far reaching
ramifications for a city that prided itself on its location and climate
as its major appeal to attract further settlement and development.
With this prospect evidently in mind the paper printed a
separate defense of Miami and its climate, absolving it of any re-
sponsibility for the illness of the soldiers. Calling the stories circu-
lating exaggerated and false, The Metropolis shifted the blame to
the victims, to another area of the country, and, indirectly, to the
war and the Army. Causes for the illness, it wrote, were the result
of the soldiers undergoing the transition from civilian to military
life and their arrival from a malarial infested region off the gulf
coast of Alabama. Miami, on the other hand, should be judged by
the health of its citizens, which was never better; not by conditions
which existed in the encampment among men who brought illness
with them or as a consequence of military life.76 Among the 7,500
troops the paper counted only 13 deaths in five weeks, listing the
cause of these fatalities: suicide (I), gunshot (1), typhoid fever (6),
and from measles complicated by other ailments (5). These figures
were compared and contrasted to Miami's own population of
2,000 citizens of which no adult citizen had died since February,
1898.77 With defiant air The Metropolis concluded that Miami was
a healthful city as evidenced in its citizenry.
The Army's reasons for removing the troops, and the paper's
defense, served only to cover the larger explanation for the depar-
ture. In a somber letter from Brigadier General William W. Gor-
don, Commanding Officer of the Second Brigade, to Joseph A.
MacDonald, civilian director of Camp Miami, a more plausible
explanation, beyond health reasons, was offered. While not blam-
ing MacDonald for any of the shortcomings experienced by his
troops, General Gordon wrote, "The fact is that the number of
troops were too great for the resources of a place where almost
everything they needed had to be created."78 Miami simply did not
have the resources and facilities to accommodate 7,500 troops,
2,000 citizens, plus a number of assorted camp followers who were
attempting to reside within its limits, let alone serve the needs of
the 36,000 soldiers, 10,000 visitors, and 25,000 citizens who located
at Tampa.79
Nevertheless, the newspaper celebrated the immediate accom-
plishments of the encampment and a dynamic profitable future
awaiting the city at the close of the war. In the short run, the stay

of the troops meant one hundred acres of scrub land cleared, one
mile of railroad sidetrack, construction of two warehouses, addi-
tional streets paved, an artesan well begun, employment for every-
body for six weeks, profits running into the thousands of dollars
for some businesses, and the advertisement of Miami from Maine
to California.80 The Metropolis believed that this progress was
only a foretaste of events to come because,
When the war closes, with steamships plying between Ha-
vana, Nassau, Key West, and the islands of the sea, the ships
loaded with the products of these islands which are being ex-
changed for American products, all passing through this
port, will begin to reveal to the world something of the im-
portant position Miami occupies in the commercial world.
Watch Miami.81
With its geographical position and proximity to Cuba, Puerto
Rico, and the Caribbean, the recently incorporated city of Miami
welcomed the Spanish-American War as an opportunity to further
its growth and development. The Miami Metropolis, the city's
lone newspaper at this time, reflected this booster attitude. Since
the paper's inception on May 15, 1896, it had been the policy of
its editors to boost the new settlement, focusing on location and
climate as its major assets. The Spanish-American War offered
still another element for boosterism. There is a sense of irony to
the city's boosterism. Like other Florida papers before the war,
The Metropolis perceived peacetime as the proper environment
for prosperity. Once the war began, however, and the paper dis-
covered that the city would remain untouched by the war's destruc-
tiveness, it targeted its attention toward gaining benefits from the
army and government in furthering Miami's self interest.

50 TEQUESTA
Arch Creek perhaps no other South Florida landmark
evokes more colorful mental images. By definition, Arch Creek is
a body of water which historically flowed from the Everglades
eastward into Biscayne Bay. Frances Densmore described it as
"an avenue to the depths of the Everglades . where rare beauty
of vegetation may be seen . ."1 For Tequesta Indians, Arch Creek
was the shady oak tree hammock which provided food and shelter.
For early pioneers, Arch Creek was a favorite picnic spot. For
passengers on the stage coach route, Arch Creek was the long
awaited rest stop. It was also the last stop for boats on sightseeing
tours from Miami. Throughout the years, enterprising individuals
tried to develop the area, prosper from its uniqueness, incorpo-
rate it, re-route it and even destroy it. Artists have painted pictures
of it and written songs about it. The concentration and range of
activities associated with the Arch Creek area is truly amazing.
Even more amazing is the fact that portions of this beautiful place
have survived relatively intact.
No description of the Arch Creek area would be complete with-
out reference to the natural limestone bridge which spanned the
creek and gave it its name. In a discussion of south Florida geology,
archaeologist Irving Eyster noted,

Of all the openings in the limestone ridge, Arch Creek was
the most unique. Here the water cuts under the oolite lime-
stone, rather than through it. This left an arch forming a
natural bridge . 2

A variety of interesting theories have been proposed regarding
the formation of this geological curiosity. In historian Thelma
Peters' Biscayne Country, she writes the following account:

When the arch was created is not known. One theory of how
it was created is this: Arch Creek was an underground stream
. until one day it lost its cover through erosion or by an
earthquake . except for forty feet where the solid rock re-
fused to fall. (Lest the earthquake theory be lightly dismissed,
there has long been a myth that New River of Fort Lauder-
dale was the result of an earthquake).3

Bert Mowers, an avocational archaeologist, described the
natural bridge as "originating from a partially collapsed cavern
roof."4 Archaeologist Dan Laxson suggests still another theory:
... Arch Creek runs through the only natural bridge forma-







Arch Creek: Prehistory to Public Park 51
tion in south Florida. Originally, the creek was a horizontal
solution hole. Swampy, acid-charged ground water gradually
weakened the roof of this tunnel until large pieces caved in,
eventually forming an open limestone gorge.5

Regardless of its origin, the natural bridge was undoubtedly
one factor which made the area so attractive to prehistoric Indians,
and, later, to the pioneers of the Arch Creek area in the 19th cen-
tury. Approximately 40 feet long and 20 feet wide, the bridge was
the focal point of much human activity throughout history.
Botanist John K. Small described the archaeological site at
Arch Creek as having ". . evidence of much activity, in the way of
kitchen middens, village sites, and burial mounds."6 The site was
recorded in the Florida Master Site File by archaeologist John
Goggin in 1952.
Laxson was the first to excavate the site in 1956. He described
the soil as sand over a basal formation of pot-holed limestone
which frequently appeared at the surface. An area of black dirt in-
dicated the site's boundaries, within which a total of eight pits were
excavated. Laxson recovered over 300 pottery fragments, a dozen
Strombus shell tools, bone points and a stone pendant. Accord-
ing to the Everglades Culture Sequence, the stratigraphy and the
ceramic time markers indicated the most intense occupation of the
site was during the Glades II period (A.D. 750-1250).7
A joint excavation of the site was undertaken by the Broward
County Archaeological Society and the Miami-West India Arch-
aeological Society in 1972. The team excavated eight pits, recov-
ering over 6,000 pottery fragments which represented the Glades
II period. Only a few Glades I period (500 B.C. A.D. 750) pottery
fragments were recovered, and even fewer Glades III period (A.D.
1250-1700) time markers.8
The most extensive work at the Arch Creek site was conducted
by archaeologist Robert Carr in 1975 for the Florida Division of
Archives, History and Records Management. Considerable care
was exercised in this project, which succeeded in locating a rela-
tively undisturbed portion of the site. A total of eight pits were ex-
cavated yielding over 2,000 pottery fragments, numerous artifacts
and faunal remains. The ceramic assemblage and radiocarbon
dates obtained from Carr's study indicate a long occupancy of
the site, covering almost the entire Everglades Culture Sequence.9
The dates of occupation suggested by Carr are 500 B.C. through
A.D. 1300, with the most intense occupation between 300 B.C.







52 TEQUESTA
and A.D. 100. Carr reports the area was "no longer the site of a large
village after circa A.D. 1200." As an explanation, he suggests,
.. the demise of the Arch Creek village reflects a population
shift by its occupants to other village sites . reflecting a
trend towards greater nucleation of coastal groups in or near
emerging town settlements in South Florida, such as the town
of Tekesta at the mouth of the Miami River.10
Archaeological excavations, research, and references in the lit-
erature, help to recreate the following chronology for the Arch
Creek area, beginning in prehistoric times and continuing through
the 20th century.
The area around Arch Creek was one of many prehistoric In-
dian habitation sites along Dade County's estuaries. Other large
villages were established around the same time at Oleta River,
Surfside, Little River, Miami River and Snapper Creek. Arch
Creek was the site of a substantial village which was able to sup-
port a sizable population due to the abundant natural resources
in the area.
The oak tree hammock, adjacent to the creek, provided much
needed shade and shelter for the Indians, as well as nutritious
plants, nuts, and berries. Biscayne Bay, less than half a mile away,
offered a variety of food sources: fish, shellfish, shark, manatee,
and turtle. To the north of the hammock were pine flatlands, home
of the important coontie plant, (Zamia integrifolia), whose roots
the Indians ground to make an edible starch-like paste. According
to botanist Dan Austin, "the plant was a staple starch source for
the Glades Indians . and also later for the Seminoles and Euro-
pean settlers."1' Arch Creek provided access into Biscayne Bay
and the interior Everglades and, of course, the natural bridge al-
lowed the Indians to cross the creek without getting their feet wet.
The historic Tequesta and Seminole Indians may have occupied
the area around Arch Creek on a seasonal or temporary basis from
circa A.D. 1300 through the 1800s. Evidence confirming this
theory was long ago destroyed by surface disturbance to the site.
During the Third Seminole War (1855-1858), U.S. troops
built a military trail between Fort Lauderdale and Fort Dallas
in Miami. It used the natural bridge at Arch Creek.
It follows through its whole extend a dry belt of country
grown up with pine, palmetto, koontie, and crosses three
streams; the Boca Ratones, Arch Creek which is spanned
by a natural bridge and Little River.12







Arch Creek: Prehistory to Public Park 53
The trail was actually a portion of a rock road, built by order
of Captain Erastus Capron, linking Fort Dallas with Fort Cap-
ron five miles north of Fort Pierce."
Unconfirmed reports indicate an arms dealer who sold guns
to the Indians during the Seminole Wars lived near the bridge.14
Known as Luis the Breed because he was part Indian and part
Cuban, Luis was supposedly killed during one of the many bitter
battles at the natural bridge.
Having served its purpose, the trail was abandoned and in
many places obliterated. Soon after this, a coontie mill and water
sluice were constructed at Arch Creek.
As indicated earlier, the coontie plant was an important food
source for Indian tribes in south Florida. The plant, which once
grew abundantly in the pinelands around Arch Creek, has been
the subject of much ethnobotanical research."5 A brief review of
these studies is important to an understanding of the significance
of the mill site at Arch Creek.
The plant and its edible by-product have been referred to by a
variety of names in the literature: koonti, koontie, coontie, coom-
tie, cunti, comptie, compete, arrowroot, arrowroot starch, comfort
root, flour root, and Indian bread root.16 The coontie plant belongs
to the genus Zamia, a member of the ancient cycad family, and is
widely distributed from Florida to Brazil. The common species in
southeastern Florida is Zamia integrifolia. According to Emile
Moya, "the plant seems to prefer limestone soils, doing well on
the eroded late Pleistocene rocks of southern Florida, Yucatan,
and the West Indies...".17 Superficially, the plant may appear to
be a small palm, or heavy fern, with its neat rows of stiff, pinnate
leaves. Coontie reaches a maximum height of only two and a
half feet and most of the plant's structure is found underground in
the heavy stem or tuber which may weigh several pounds. The
stem, which is commonly referred to as a root, resembles a sweet
potato and is composed of a tough fibrous material with a high
proportion of starch grains. Additionally, the root contains a solu-
ble poisonous compound, probably a glycoside.18
The first step in processing coontie involves cutting the roots
into small pieces. The pieces are then grated or ground into a moist
pulp. The pulp is washed and strained, separating the starch from
the fiber and removing the toxin. The starch which remains is al-
lowed to settle, the water is drained off, and the process is repeated.
The author's experience indicates the water will exhibit a reddish







54 TEQUESTA
cast until the poison is entirely removed. The starch is then dried
in the sun for several hours. The result is a powder-fine, high qual-
ity starch with a sweet, vanilla-like flavor.19
According to Sleight, "the earliest reference to the use of the
roots for making of 'bread' by the Indians of Florida is to be found
in the Memoir of Hernando d' Escalante Fontaneda, dating from
about 1575."20 John Fix reports the Tequestas and Calusas pre-
pared a "pudding" from coontie roots which was a basic ingredi-
ent in almost every meal.21 A study by Austin revealed the Semi-
noles called it "coontie-hateka" or "white bread", from which the
word coontie is derived.22
During the 1800s white settlers in south Florida learned the
art of preparing coontie starch.23 Not only did the pioneers enjoy
the culinary rewards of the coontie plant, but they turned the pro-
cess into a profit-making business which endured almost a century.
The backyard manufacture of coontie starch was a dependable
source of cash for early pioneers until about 1900 when commer-
cial mills began operating.24 According to Ernest Gearhart:

. manufacturing starch from the coontie root is probably
the earliest known industry in Dade County . it has been
established that white settlers engaged in the industry some
time prior to 1840.25

Probably the best known of the commercial mills was owned by
Albert Hurst located at Northeast 2nd Avenue and 103rd Street.
The mill turned out two tons of high quality, fiber-free starch a
day, most of which was sold to national baking companies for bis-
cuits, crackers, cookies and spaghetti. As early as 1845, George W.
Ferguson also owned a large mill which sometimes employed as
many as 25 workers. Ferguson's mill was located about three miles
up the Miami River at present day Northwest South River Drive
and Northwest 28th Avenue. The Florida Tropical Cookbook
contains many recipes for using coontie in sauces, gravies, pud-
dings and pies. Reportedly, coontie starch was also good for
burns.26 A by-product of the industry was the decayed pulp which
made an excellent fertilizer for fruit trees.27
Most of the earlier mills were makeshift and operated by hand.
The Hurst mill utilized steam for power to turn the grinding wheel.
But one of the most unusual mills was operated at Arch Creek and
was powered by running water. The only known reference to the
Arch Creek coontie mill comes from Rose Wagner Richards'







Arch Creek: Prehistory to Public Park 55
Reminiscences of the Days of Miami, published by the Miami
News, in 1903. Mrs. Richards gave the following account:

It was in the fall of the year, 1858, that Mr. George Lewis re-
turned to Miami . desirous of finding a good location on
which to build a factory and engage in the manufacture of
starch. Such a place he and Mr. Robert Fletcher, who was to
share in the enterprise with him, found on Arch Creek ... The
factory was built immediately on top of the arch. On the south
side where a ditch was cut through the rock, can yet be seen,
and where the water was made to flow through after the main
passage beneath the arch had been closed up sufficient to cause
the water to rise and flow through the ditch with such force as
to turn the water wheel attached to the machinery used in the
factory. A year or more of time was consumed by them at this
place and not succeeding as well as they could have wished, the
place was abandoned by them altogether.28

The seemingly inexhaustable supply of coontie gradually dis-
appeared in the early 1900s. The Hurst mill was destroyed by a hur-
ricane in 1926 after it moved to Southwest 104th Street and U.S. 1
and was never re-built. The slow growth habit of the coontie plant
was not conducive to cultivation, and their natural pineland habi-
tat was the first to feel the crunch of the bulldozers during the land
boom of the 1920s. The mill at Arch Creek, although unsuccess-
ful in the starch business, was certainly unique in operation. It is
one of the only known coontie mills to have used a sluice and the
only excavated mill site in south Florida.
Township 52 South, Range 42 East was officially surveyed in
1870 and the natural bridge and surrounding tree hammock were
duly noted on the map.29 Settlers in the 1870s included Mike Fal-
lon, William S. Milliken, Mr. and Mrs. J.R. Rhodes and their two
children, the brother of Mrs. Rhodes, Benjamin Coachman, and
Mr. and Mrs. William Fogg. Milliken died February 5, 1876 and
was buried close to the natural bridge.30 A large granite tombstone
marked his grave which remained until at least 1934. An article in
the Daily News indicated that the grave had been disturbed through
the years reportedly because the word "treasure" was used in the
epitaph.31
The J.R. Rhodes family came from the Carolinas and settled
near the arch on the south side. Mr. Rhodes was known as "Arch
Creek Rhodes" to distinguish him from Samuel Rhodes of Coco-
nut Grove.32







56 TEQUESTA
Mrs. Rhodes, in crossing the arch one day, met and killed
the largest rattle-snake with a small garden hoe, that I have
ever heard of being killed in the country, the snake measuring
6 feet 9 inches. The skin was preserved as a trophy. She was a
plucky little woman, and thought nothing of what she had
done.33

The Rhodes moved away in 1877. According to Peters, Charles
J. Ihle deserves the title of First Settler in the vicinity of Arch
Creek. In 1891 Ihle bought 80 acres, for a dollar an acre, and planted
fruit trees, coconut palms and landscaped his property with tropical
plants. In 1922 the Deloss LeBaron Perrine family purchased the
Ihle property. Mr. Perrine published Tropic Magazine, which fea-
tured articles on outdoor life and sightseeing in Florida. He used
a photo of the estate on the cover of the magazine in April, 1925.34
Rattlesnakes were not the only over-sized creatures that lived
at Arch Creek. In 1874 William T. Hornaday, a taxidermist in
Miami waged a vicious battle with a 14'2" crocodile in Arch Creek.
Hornaday claims it was the first true crocodile ever captured on
American soil.35 "Old Crock" was stuffed and put on display in the
United States National museum.
Commodore Ralph Munroe and Charles Peacock, early Co-
conut Grove pioneers, engaged in a ferocious fight with a 14'8"
crocodile in Arch Creek. They succeeded in capturing and killing
the 1,200 pound saurian which was exhibited at the American
Museum of Natural History in 1887.36
Perhaps the most colorful account comes from Dr. John G.
Dupuis of Lemon City, who wrote the story of "Gladiator, The
Crocodile of Arch Creek."'37 According to Dupuis' Seminole In-
dian friends, Gladiator's parents were huge crocodiles that resided
in Indian Creek. Gladiator was "blown by a very severe hurricane
when he was a baby into Arch Creek River and was immediately
adopted by a mother Manatee (Sea Cow) who protected him.. .'31
Gladiator became a "vicious and terrific fighter and if a shark or
saw fish or animals invaded his home he executed them without
fear or favor . but in all the time he resided at Arch Creek he
never fought or annoyed any of the Manatee family in his chosen
homestead."9 Dupuis terminated Gladiator's fighting career and
hung the croc's skin in the reception room of his White Belt Dairy
Farm.
The first county road built at taxpayers' expense was com-
pleted in 1892. According to Peters, the road "ran from Lantana








Arch Creek: Prehistory to Public Park 57
at the lower end of Lake Worth to Lemon City on Biscayne Bay,
sixty miles, 'built' at a cost of twenty-five dollars a mile . ."40 In
1890 E.L. White was commissioned to build three ferries, in con-
junction with the county road, to cross Little River, Snake Creek
and New River. There was no need for a ferry at Arch Creek as it
had a natural bridge.41 A hack line (stage coach), "consisting of a
springless wagon drawn by mules, with boards to sit on and a canvas
for shade, began operating in 1893."42 Peters reports "the stage
coach . made the last rest stop southbound at the arch there
were no facilities but plenty of bushes and good water if one had
a long reach."43 A portion of the trip was described by Guy Met-
calf, editor of the Tropical Sun newspaper:
At noon (of the second day) we reached Arch Creek where is
to be found a natural rock bridge under which runs the clear,
deep waters of the creek, full of the finest fish, which can be
seen gliding hither and tither.44
"The military trail of the Seminole Wars, the first county road,
and later the Dixie Highway, all followed almost identical routes
crossing the natural bridge at Arch Creek."45 Peters calls it the
"Check Point Charley of the Bay country, the welcome mat for
early tourists, and a natural phenomenon that all South Floridians
came to regard with pride, even awe."46
Other south Florida pioneers besides Lewis, who built the
coontie mill, took advantage of the natural bridge and sought to
prosper from it. Unlike Lewis, however, Clarence Billings capital-
ized on the beauty of the Arch Creek area and operated a sightsee-
ing tour between Miami and the natural bridge. The Metropolis
reported that Billings had cleaned out the obstructions in Arch
Creek so he could operate his launch, the Laura, which drew only
twenty inches of water. "It was a good trip, the paper said, because
of 'the deep gorge near the Natural Bridge, the bridge itself, the
tropical foliage covering the banks of the winding streams, the
trees covered with immense orchids, the alligators sunning along
the banks . .47
Pioneer Caroline Washburn-Rockwood took a sightseeing trip
from the Peacock Inn at Coconut Grove to the natural bridge, and
wrote the following account in her book, In Biscayne Bay:
About two hundred yards ahead the coral had formed a solid
mass across the river . leaving a natural bridge, on which
vegetation had taken a luxuriant hold, while a transparent veil
of vines half revealed the upper waters of the creek beyond







58 TEQUESTA
... The tide was low enough to allow the boats to go under the
arch, and they followed the creek a mile farther toward the
Everglades, where quantities of white lilies were growing
among the waving grasses.48

The residents of the community and nearby towns appreciated
the beauty of the Arch Creek area too and utilized it for rest and
relaxation. Pupils of Miami's first downtown school celebrated
the end of the school year with a picnic at the natural bridge in
May, 1887. According to Peters, "barbecues, fish fries, political
rallies, Easter egg hunts, community Thanksgiving dinners, and
even on one occasion a baptism, were held there."49
Not only did Ralph Munroe capture crocodiles at Arch Creek,
but he also captured the beauty of the area on film. According to
Munroe's uncle, Alfred, "the narrow river, which most of the way
is bordered by mangrove trees, whose roots shoot out from the
body of the trees twenty feet above ... together with the long hang-
ing moss make pictures that are worth coming down to see."50
Another enterprising pioneer, Captain John Welsh, was at-
tracted by the beauty of the Arch Creek area. Welsh's pet project
was the town of Natural Bridge. He bought 160 acres of land im-
mediately surrounding the arch and planned his town.51 Among
other ideas, his design included building a hotel in the oak tree
hammock. To promote the town, Welsh offered prospective buyers
a boat ride from Miami to the natural bridge. The end of the trip,
Arch Creek, was the most popular part:
... the launch passed through thick mangroves arching over-
head, across the salt marsh, and into the shade of the dense
hammock. Alligators sunning on the banks plopped into the
water . and startled birds awkwardly took wing. When the
tide was low enough Welsh provided a rowboat so his guests
could have the thrill of passing under the arch.52
George Hinckley, a wealthy restaurant owner and nature lover,
moved to the Arch Creek area about 1910. He built a house near
the oak hammock where he made a hobby of enhancing the natural
beauty of the area and sharing it with others. Hinckley trimmed
sections of the hammock, planted tropical trees, laid out trails, and
provided picnic tables. According to Peters, "he even had two
peacocks to entertain his visitors."53 The Metropolis reported that
Hinckley "was getting his place to look like a park."5 Hinckley
also built a refreshment stand where he sold cold drinks and
souvenirs.

The refreshment stand was later enlarged and became known
as "the shell house," because the outer walls were covered with
conch shells. Peters reports,

. during Prohibition when tea rooms were in vogue, this
building was known as the Arch Creek Tearoom. (Metro-
polis, October 27, 1921). The tearoom almost overhung the
stream near the arch and was itself the subject for many
souvenir postcards,s55

The town of Natural Bridge, or Arch Creek as it later became
known, grew and prospered in the early 1900s. A group of people
from Elmira, New York, established a winter colony where they
grew grapefruit and tomatoes. The Elmirans are credited with the
first organized settlement in the area.56 The Florida East Coast

Railway came through and established the Arch Creek depot in
1903, about a half mile south of the natural bridge. A post office
opened the same year and classes began at the Arch Creek School
in 1905. By 1920 Arch Creek boasted a population of 307 resi-
dents.57 The real estate boom in the mid 1920s transformed the
small community into a fast-paced city. Arch Creek incorporated as
the Town of Miami Shores in 1926.
Portions of the oak hammock were cleared for a trailer park
in the 1950s. Known as the Seabreeze Trailer Park, the owners
destroyed much of the native vegetation surrounding the trailers.
The trailer park operated for approximately five years before the
property was sold.
In 1957 the first of many threats against the natural bridge and
the Arch Creek tree hammock materialized. A flood prevention
program designed to drain low-lying areas placed the arch in dan-
ger. The Army Corps of Engineers proposed blowing up the bridge
or rerouting the creek. The Miami Herald announced, "one of
Southeast Florida's historic landmarks may be doomed ... Dade
County engineers say that the bridge must be sacrificed for better
drainage of the area."58 Fortunately, protests from the Audubon
Society, the Historical Association of Southern Florida, and local
residents prevented either of the alternatives from becoming a
reality. Coincidentally, this was the same year that Laxson pub-
lished his report indicating the presence of an important prehistoric
Indian midden in the hammock. The Miami News featured the
natural bridge in a "Believe-it-or-Not" column in 1958.59
It was not until the 1970s that the Arch Creek area again re-
ceived such widespread public attention. The Chrysler Corpora-
tion, owner of the property in 1972, proposed to build a used car
lot where the oak hammock stood. Citizens' groups such as Tropi-
cal Audubon Society, Miami-West India Archaeological Society
and the Arch Creek Trust were outraged at the idea of destroying
the beautiful tree hammock and paving the ground with concrete.
The groups initiated an extensive campaign aimed at saving the
land from destruction. Meanwhile, the Chrysler Corporation gave
the Broward County Archaeological Society 60 days to conduct
salvage excavations in order to determine the property's archaeo-
logical significance.
Finally, after almost a year of intense lobbying, the Florida
Cabinet voted unanimously to preserve the property. The Miami
News reported that $822,000 was allocated from the state's land







Arch Creek: Prehistory to Public Park 61
acquisition trust fund to buy 7.9 acres east of the creek which
would be developed into a state park.60
Within hours of signing the official documents one month later,
the natural bridge collapsed into the creek. Fortunately no one
was hurt, but unfortunately, the newly acquired property was with-
out its most prized natural feature. Initially there were claims of
sabotage but explosives were finally ruled out as the cause. There
are almost as many theories regarding the mysterious collapse of
the natural bridge as there are about its original formation. Erosion
and old age were finally determined to be its downfall, combined
with auto traffic and vibrations from nearby railroad tracks.
In 1975 state officials held a ground-breaking ceremony for a
museum at the park. It was at this time that archaeologist Bob
Carr excavated the Indian midden in order to gather interpretive
data and materials for displays in the proposed museum. Between
1975 and 1978, state funds for the building were directed elsewhere
and nothing more than breaking the ground was ever accomplished.
In 1978 Dade County leased the property from the state and
began planning a park. The early 1980s brought clean-up crews
to the property and construction began on a museum.
An unfortunate incident occurred in November, 1980. A North
Miami police officer, Carl Mertes, died in the line of duty on the
property. Today the park bears his name in its title.
During the summer of 1981 the Youth Conservation Corps
planted over 500 trees and established a nature trail through the
hammock. Also in 1981, the Dade County Historic Survey and
archaeologist Irving Eyster discovered and excavated the historic
coontie mill sluice. Among the artifacts recovered by Eyster were
a clay pipe bowl and stem, a fragmented Spanish olive jar, ginger
beer bottles, ironware, faunal bone and several pieces of Indian
pottery. Eyster succeeded in locating the area that contained the
water wheel and the location of the gate which controlled the flow
of water. Many charred timbers and charcoal were found, indicat-
ing that perhaps the mill was burned.61
Arch Creek Memorial Park for Carl Mertes was officially dedi-
cated on April 25, 1982. Much publicity preceded the ceremony
announcing the long-awaited event and detailing the controversial
history surrounding the new park. According to The Miami Her-
aid, over 700 people gathered for the celebration, and nearby
streets were closed to traffic.62 Community citizens and officials
participated in an emotional program full of reminiscences,

speeches and proclamations. The Historical Association of South-
ern Florida presented the park with a handsome historic marker
which was unveiled at the ceremony.
Arch Creek Park is a passive park, designed for nature-lovers,
birdwatchers and students of history and archaeology. The park
environment promotes quiet contemplation and leisurely hikes.
The facility at Arch Creek Park is an architectural conversa-
tion piece, designed as a replica of a late 1800s Florida "cracker"
style house. The exterior walls are western red cedar, stained gray
for a weathered appearance, and a tin roof covers the building. A
wide porch wraps around the outside. Inside is a beautiful yellow
cedar, oak and teakwood floor and solid douglas fir beams stretch
across the high ceiling.
The building functions as a museum and nature center. The
exhibit area features interpretive displays illustrating the natural
and archaeological history of the Arch Creek area. As one of only
two publicly accessible archaeological sites in Dade County, the
park offers educational experiences that cannot be found anywhere
else in the area. Students may participate in special programs
where they assume the role of archaeologist, botanist or bird-
watcher.
Today, a primary concern at Arch Creek Park is the preserva-
tion and protection of the native tree hammock and the archaeo-
logical sites. A comprehensive botanical plan, developed by natur-
alists and the park staff, is currently in use. The plan contains an
inventory of existing plant species, and guidelines for preserva-
tion, re-vegetation, and maintenance of the tree hammock.63 As
of 1983, over 150 native Florida species and 65 exotic plant species
were growing in the park. Included in the list are several "threat-
ened" or "endangered" plants such as coontie, coral bean and
Hercules' club.
Arch Creek Park was designated as a local historic site in
1985 and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places a
year later. The archaeological sites are protected in two ways: by
the Dade County Historic Preservation Ordinance and by stan-
dards set forth by the National Park Service. Also in 1986 a life-
long dream of many local residents came true. After years of fund-
raising, a replica of the natural bridge was finally constructed.
The history of the Arch Creek area "has always been a history
of tears and triumphs, of trees and treasures and torment... It is in
our battle to preserve this place that we have realized the very es-







Arch Creek: Prehistory to Public Park 63

sence of its history."64 The challenge at hand is to protect this pre-
cious piece of Miami's history so that future generations will be
able to appreciate its beauty and cross the creek without getting
their feet wet.
