T~a!ra ),now ins:-ectinF the orrmatized Icil~itia of Florida unider inr-
astrructioros fr*om your efficie, I: deem it proper and Just to say that

it with~out2 tokt intlerference of the Tynited States Ililitary Auwhor-

ities.

EspSecially to I wishl to testify to thie usefulness of

"ir.jor Deipray to the Ftloridar State: "ilitiaf,and while I realize that

Ma~rjor 33apra 'sr dutyi as Special Inspector under the '''iliitay L~aw and

Arm Oficier onlr znt. wih the orresinzed Erilitiar of 7Florida and

lfilitary Advinser to the rGovernor ;.I neve~r-thelesas feel :impeIlled to

sayr that I wirnh to emph7asize ay desire that nothing involved in the
incident above preferred to aball be construed in any way to indi-

cate that "rajor Dapray is not perfectly agreeable to mne officially

and pesrsonally in the position he holds--the position upon which he











was detaled by orders of the Watr Despartme~nt upoan my direct a!.pli-

KEvWEST, FLORIDA.
March 9th.'I907


Mr.sP.D.Gassidey, Secretar~y,Seminole Clu,

Jacksonville,Fla,

M~y dear sir:-
I have yours of 5th., inst.,

in which you say', At a meeting of the directors of the seminole club

held 2kafraurtay on Tuesday, February 26th,,I907,at which meeting Mr.Bryan
the Gounty Solicitor of this county was present,it was stated by Mlr.

Bryan,that, you had stated to Governor Broward,that you had lost bI,500.00
in the Seminole Glub,playing oards. The Directors would like your

explanation."
This statement is false in letter and in spirit. Goonsionally,

possibly a half a doz;eln times a year, I have played a nondesoript game
for 01ub supply tickets,but never for moneys I have never won nor lost
more than a trifling number of these at a time,and I doubt if in the

aggregate thnerec is a difference of $25.00 one way~ or the other,and an
reasonaby sue that the balance is in my favor.
I diad not make the statement that is attributed to me,to Governor

Broward or any one else,nor have I any recollection of mentioning to

Governor Broward or any other person not a member,anything that ma
have transpired in the Club

Thanking you for advising me of this very remarkable stlatemnent,thus

giving me an opportunity to refute itG,
I: a verg-sincerely yours,


I am sebding a copy of this letter to Gov.Broward and Mr.B~fryan.

MANUFACTURERS' RECORD
BALTIMORE

RICHARD H. EDMONDS
EDITOR AND GENERAL MANAGER





Baltimore, M~arch 22, 1907


Sub jeact -Transpo rt at ion -Ri ve r s&Harbo rs Improvement s


Dear Sir:

Transcending in Importance every other

business question before the American people is

that of transportation. American development must

be halted unless there can be brought about a far-

reaching increase in transportation facilities.

Essentially~ important to this is the development

of rivers and harbors of the entire country.

The Mianufacturers' Record will begin

this week the publication of a series of very broad

and comprehensive articles, three or four of them

by Lewis MJ. Haupt, one of the foremost water-improve-

ment engineers in Amerlea, on this subject. These

articles will discuss the need of river and harbor

development, the relative cost of transportation by

water and rail, the important work under way, the

oanaels now.under construction in different sections

and possible canals in other sections.

This campaign of discussion is the

carrying out of the broad work which for fifteen or




I


I


I' 'I


twenty years the Manufacturers' Record has been

doing in favor of river and harbor improvements.

The most active work of enlisting the people of

the whole country in urging national expenditure for

this purpose on a very large scale must be pressedo

with vigor by every man who is interested in the

further pr-gress and prosperity of the country.

We invite your subscription to the Record

and your co-operation in its wide circulation during

the next two or three months while this discussion

will be under way. lThe annual subscription is $g4.00.

Can we not have your order? If you do not eare to

make an annual subscription we would be glad to have

you send $1.00 for three months covering these

special articles.

Can we not have your individual subscription,

and3 possibly your favorable consideration of an

order for a number of extra copies to be mailed to

those likely to be interested in this subject?

Very truly yours,

MIANUFACTURERS' RECORD).

Dear Sir and Brother--

We are anxious to obtain the names and addresses

of all Knights living in Jacksonville and vicinity who have not affil-

iated with either of the local lodges. To this end we ask your

co-operation and help, and should be very much obliged if you would

send me the names of any Knights you may know in good standing, or

otherwise, whose membership is not in either of the local lodges.

Awaiting the pleasure of an early reply,

i From
Major J.A.Dapray,
No. 8, The Evelyn Flats,
Laura St~near Ashley St.
Jackson~ville, Fla. i
March 86th/07.
Personal.


My dear Governor:-
I have been intending for somae days past to write to
you,and actually did write a letter to you but just as I w0as about to post
it'I heard that you were soon to visit Jacksonvi~lle again,and thought I might
just as well wait and see you. after youf: arrival. here. however as I missed
seeing you I will now write to say that; I am still busy on my official re-
ports to the War Department;,and unless you instruct me to the contrary I will
stay here at least long enough to complete them.
Aet all even~ts,howevetr, I want to be able to return to
Tallahassee early next month,if not sooner,so as to be within your reach when
%~###########~k~ t he Legislature meets,in case I canl be of any service to you. Of
course, I realize that to somne unsymrpathetic ears it mayT sound presumptious
for me to say~ this,but somehow I feel that; your strongest~ point is your own
integrity and3 the better it is understood the weaker the opposition becomes.
In other wrords,dear Governor,I believe that your reasons and your motives
have only to be made known to people to win their support,and one of the first
d~uties of## frindship is to see that a friend is not misunderstood.
Of course I know that you like man another ~inblic man'
must hanve your re~al and your lukewarm f~riends,but I want to caution you right
now against that class of creatures whro when a friend is criticized or 3ibed
at by somebody behind his back,find it to their interest to laughat,if they
do not openly agree with the attack. That may be one phase of polities,but I
believe that the majority of mankind prefer angL outspoken friend quite as
much as an open and frank: enemy. And what is more,I dont believe it matters
much who makes the truth understood-so long as it is understood. So the de-
duction fro~m all 1T have said on this point is simplly this; even an humble
friend like myself may be able to help certain people in Tallahassee noxt
month to better~uniderstand and appreciate the logic and the ;justice of your
attitude.
And right here let me say again that I appreciate more
than I can tell you that letter you wrote in my behalf after I had been so
w~antonily secretly attacked by a man I had he reason to suspect was my enemy.
Thzen I think of it I oant help wondering if he? has not in some secret manner
tried in other ways to injure me,for I think it is i########~ beyond dispute
that thei hand that strikes in the dark and from behind without warning can never
safely be trusted ag~ain--by anybody. It goes without saying that I was sorry
you were bothered about that mnatter,an yet it was only like you ####t~ when a.
friend was so unjustly attacked to be willing to stand up for him and see fair
play. Ere long I think I can prove that there was absolutely no official rea-
son for Foster's attack on. me which was the odocome of some petty 'eteling or
resentment for which there was no manly excuse. However I had no intention to
bring3 this matter up in this personal letter,but it forces itself upon meh a
great dac6l,eepecsially when I realize that I am practically thze guesat of Flor-
ida by your muh appreciated invitation,and it was unbecoming any subordinate
of yours.to attempt to east unmerited aspersion upon me.

Besides I fealise that in the time I have been in Florida
much good has resulted to; the State troops,and an examination of the two








last annual reports of the Aldjutant-General of this State `will show veryr
plainly to any unrpreJudiced mlind that my work has been useeful- my reports,
mdy rscommendations,myT suggested ordera,the expressed thanks and praises of
the highest officers in thet military establishment,atnd my name appearing
in all patlts of the year's resume' of work done,together with the expressed
thanks of the State officers' association passed by a unanimous risingaE votg--
~I say all' this migh be construed to indicate that; there must be some sudden
personal reason wchy General Foster and Colonel Corbett have recenlfly joined
in. attacking mae. U~nfortunattely those two officers are now in attendance at
the Inter-State National Guardl Convention in Golumbia where I shall not be
surprised #################### to learn 8 ##_B~i they have attempted to inz-
Jure~ me. Last yrear when the privilege was tendered to me to go wPith. the State's
delegates to the National '&uard Convention I declined on account of the cold
weather in the north where it was held, but I said I would like to go this
yearzespeciall~y as the convention was to be held in the South and in pgy own.
native State. W~hen the time came for the selection of delegates,bowever, I
wras not honored with an invitation ,and the place I might have hoped to fill.
was given to Golonel Corbett--a conscienceless and merciless enemy who at
the recent meeting of the State convention of National Guard officers in this
wity undertook to introduce a reaso~lut~ion sulogis~tie ofe tj##4 Adjtutaht-General
Foster and denunciatory of me--an act so flagrantly unajust and unoalled for
the convention unanimous refused to allow the resolution even to be read--
and in fact not one officer could be found to second it.
You must pardon me/dear Governor,1f I show that I feel keenly the
unkinaness of the two men I refer to. I know that yJou too havse your trials,
but you know that IC sympatias with ypu in them aznd I am sure you will not
mind if I writet to you as I do now. Abover all I: value that letter you wrote
-in my behalf to the Wlar D~epartment,and~ I: wguld be glad if you would tell me
if any acknowledgment or reply comes to it. It waZs not likely to call forth a
reply but of course I would like to hear if one should come.

I hope that ypalrr will read my report published in the A.G's report,
and I hope too that you wi~ll see fit to include int your message some of the
points I had the privilege of submitting to you* by the wa,Dear Governor,
you promised to send me some memoranda on the Negro or R~ace Question,to read
over,but I have not received it,.

please say to Mrs Broward that Mars apray has been quite srick for a
paft of the time we have been here but often speaks of her. Wefo both remember
with gr~ateful appreciation the kindness of Mdrs Browrad and Mtliss Douglass,and
even. here your good sister has been most attentive an krin to Mrs Dapray woho
has enjoyed her calls very muFthl

To his Excellency,
Governor N. B. Broward,
Tallahassee, F'la.


Dear Sir:-
for
I write ha favor, not an office.

he :DeSoto County Niews has the only linotype machine in Fbrida,
I think, outside of newspaper offices with daily editions, or in large job
establishments in the cities.

We would be glad to get a cosy -f your forthoominZ message and oub-
lish it in full for the benefit of our readers, in the state and outside.

I have no East Coast or other powerful corporation, but we are am-
01tious to build up a pa~er, that is enterarising, up-to-date and absolutely
independent and devoted to real best interests of all the state, 'especially
this South west portion, that has been so neglected aosarently by the only
railroad interest that has had the business.

If you will furnish me a copy we will be glad to get it as soon as
we can. Of course we will regard the proprieties, hnd not publish till after
it has been read in the Legislature.

I .may add that we are starting to build up a business in furnishing
lInotype matter to smaller offices.

With personal regards and best wishes, believe,

.Yours sincerely,

Governor N.B.Browrard,

Tallahiassee, Bla.

D~ear Sir:-
W7e sent out the enclosed letter to the publishers of Florida.

You will see by this that w~e have tried to guard fully against any publ

lishing before it is given to the legislature. Orders have come in quite

freely for this message.

We are particularly anxious that you give us the copy at as

early a date as possible so we may have amrple time to set it up, put it

in plates, and ship it to the newspapers that have ordered it. It is

a long distance, and the connections are poor to many points in Florida,

so we will need all the time we can have in order to deliver the plates

if they are used immediately after its delivery to the legislature.

Can you inform us by return mail when wie can expect it?

Very truly yours,

Amrerican Press Associat ion.

Si rt
A ciomniatiorn sen you previous to myi leaving~ home (N;ewI 3myrus, Fla,)I
enlos10Ing corresPOndece rorlat~ive to proposed legislation affor~ding relief
to conditions Ihrichn assail the Ukited statess uEau3i of Fisheries in their ef-
fort to :invyEtigain! the situation preparatory to the prospective estabrlishing
of a Ka~tobery Stantion, and Bilological Laboratory for spuel'liF culture jinvestiga-
tions, &e. Th presence8 of the UI. S. Steamner Firsh Haw, ne engaged for the
firrst time since 1897, then unider command of Lieut, Swift, inve-stigating the
fishlleries of Fi1olrda -rlenderI any assistan;2ce by the State as imprative, by pro-
viding for aL ecutinualtion: of."~C the orkb by legislative actio~.
M~y knol*:1Pdge of thle factls, from the observation afforded during the month of
Cecemabe, 1906, while the U. S. S. Fish HawJ~'k was Jcssr:ign to dut3 at Ire:: Smyra,
secured for me an invitation to viisit the operat;ions ona the St. Johns River
inm the propaga=tiiln of shad, n'hici; invitation I accepted and now Personally ap-
peal~ to you, soliciting your Exgecutive ceooperation: in -ftfording all necessary
facilities to bring about the desired results, ihlich wvill eventually tend to
advance the interests of the naturl- food, and marine products.
RSealizing my rutter I~inesp;acity to brring about this desired effect under the
naverse conditions which now assail the fishery interests of Florida, ansd which
you are aware from my RBeports8 as Chainnan of the Fish Coonsissionf previous to
the passagEe of the Act repealing the Section! crea~ting~ that important body, I
from perssonlal kn~owledgec, obtained~ onz the~ nremises, sussat, am su-- ww. --
you in your offie~lal camellty take this matter up and bring about the desired
result. The e~xpense i.ncuirred by the Bureau of Fisiheries i~n prosecuting these
researches for tche benefit of Florida should be considered, and no occasion
be given to send the Sjtesmear Fish Hawks an her cre away leaving~ the work un-
finished, possibly never again to be renewed.
Thef handic2p to operations by the Fish HawkO is the endly62 of shad fishingtunder
the lawF, julst as the oshad are beg~~iaing to lay their ~eggs, practically~ no ripe
egges having* been obtainable up to this date, whereas in~t the month of April the
shad wBill be spawning, in qunantity. On April~ 1, whe the fishermen are are
break3ring up tnd goicl away, a p.eriord begingse when there will been shad for
Fjxam]inQtiOnl. TheB needs of thef case are these,-
(1)Tlo wallow rishermer to continue fishing after April 1, iand unil the conl-
reu-iing Legslature meeste9 an take cr..0-.rative arcfton.
(2) R~e:;o.t LegF'islature on its Lssemb~ing;, t_ amend the shed lawt so,as to per-
mit abad fishermn to catch, shifp, and sell fresh shadf in Aprile and May
1907,- the on e seson.
(3) Be~quest the Legislatu~re to pass the draft of Bill rhich, was received fro
.''ashington, and mailed to you.
In advance of Legilslative action the question is whether you might consider
it righ, a~nd pracrticsble to attempt to influence the shriffs, and gam ward-
enal in the territory of thes shuLd fish cultu~ra2l operations to waive the exer-
cuti.on of the she~d c~lose-season law until he legislature can take the matter
under conisiderat ion. The couhities embraced are Patam Marion, La and P~ol-
usia. I as mailingr~ a copy of this letter to h U. Buea iibk of Fiabries.
