Hon.N.B.Broward,
Tallahassee,Pla.
Dear Sir:-

At the request 6f Myiss Gertrude Dzainlynski,who is a blood

relation of mine,I came to your city today to investigate thre m~at-

ter regartding the derogatory remarks made about her and ascribed
top Prof;A A.A.Murphree!. Innedia~tely upon may arrival I drove out to

the Bloridal Femarle College to, see Prof.M~urphreezexplained top him my

mission and requested a statement from him, regarding this matter.

He denied most poai~tively that he had ever made any remarks against

the character or good name of Miss Dz~ialy~nski.

I an informed that Mliss Daintlynski,my cousin,wabs refused a po-

sition in your office on account of the statement alleged to have

been made by Prf.M~urphreer and as thre gentlemarn positively and most

emphatically denies that he! has made any such staterment,I as satis-
fied that any reports reflecting upon her have come from sam~e one

who has a personal grievanrce against her rand whe is afraid to come
out itn the open and makre these remaarks.a
I trust that your Ekeelleincy will pardon my taking; up so much

of your raluable time,but,as yo~u well know,a woman's reputation is
her most valuable asset and the faintest breath of suspicion will

damage her in the eyes of her associates and the public ;at large,
and any encouragement or sanction on your part in this particular

instance will hurt :Miss Dzsialynski,beth financially and socially,

for years to come.

Yourr with great resspect,





Georgia.

Important
and
Confidebtial.

Th~e Cha~pin,
141t~5 Chapin Stdeet,N.W.
Washington ,D).C. November 8th.l3907.


My dear Gove~rnor:P-
I have had a very important conversation on drainage matters
with Mr W~rigiht,wrhich I am authorized to makre known $o you in confidence,as it
might result in very serious embarrassment to him if he should be suspectedof
undue partiality in matters of" advice on this subject. So you will of course
treat this letter in strict confidence so far as the source of the information
I send to you,is concerned,and may I beg that you-will not place it'on the
open files.
To-d~ay Mr W., phoned to me that he would likre to have a. thlk
with me andr we met at a hotol at 1 o'clock. You will doubtless remember that
he was out of the city when I called at his office day before yesterday and
it was agreed that I should have notice of his return to the city,hence his
telephone message today.
He wrote t~o ;you on Saturday last,th~e 2nd I think,a.nd urgdd
you to come up to thie Dr~aina~ge- Congress on N~ovember 26,26 and 2a,but he did
not fool at liberty to tell you wYhy he wanted to see you. Of course your yre-
sence at the D~rainage Chngress is to be desired for an~y reasons,but your com-
ing North about that ti~me,#####t in M5r Wrrigh.t's opinion would undoubtedly be
of incalculable advantage to the State of Florida,an~d,I may add,to yourself
as wellrbot~h personally and politicallyzeapecially if you could manage,(as in
justice to yourself and the State you shou~ld,)to time your arrival here about
the time Mr Elliot,the head of the Dratinage Service, is listed to return to
W~ashington from his present trip WnhrpaLgh Northrern Loulisiana, on the: 19th inst.
The reason for this I sifted out of a story of facts and conditions too long
to write in detail,but suffice it to ~say briefllylthat wh2en. Mr Elliot returns
decision will~lb hareachasd as to-the##### dirctio which, the present waiting
drainage force will take.
That waiting force should right now be in Florida at work
on the task which Mr Wright has mapped out in his mind,but canot move a peg
until.Ur Elliot the newly in~stalled head of the Draina.ge Service comes back
to Washington and decides where and when the waiiting force shall go to work-
in Florida or elsewhere.
I am told that last year the Missouri Pacific Railroad,gbt
up an exrpeditioawith a special car or 'traini- MRETE100%R~tt conalderable only ex-on
pense,tak~in~g representative s of tlhe Agricu~ltural Departmre~nt through~ northern
Lousiatna. ,M;isincipp~ri andi Arkara:::s. ~~ltal~l~;~no17-;i d~.:;C erad. thr ncheFme wrorl:dd.
so well1 that the expedition was repeated this y;ear,M~r Elliot hiimself going
along in place of Mlr wVright who last time made a Inumber of Sp~eehesF1 to thle
people who were aessembled at various places to hear the adver'ti~se talks on
agricultural matters in general but drainage matters in particular. dA a, rec
sylt thze people of tho~se sections are pretty well wrbrked up and3 enth~used over
thle drainagte sche~me,and I am told in great confidence that a plan is now on
foot to get a sepafate appropriation made by Congress of i50.000. for drain-
ago" work in northern Lousianal this: coming session., To help that shemo along
it is believed 'that thousandss of letters will be pouredl upon CongressJ and th-e
Agrricultu~ral Department''irwhlich to say the least will tenld to impress upo~rn thle
federal ;authorities the fact,or alleged fact,thatt the people of that sectinn,
are more interested and13 more vitally concerned in drairnage: than an other







J.A.D.to Governor B.
which of course would not be true. Nevzerthfeless th danger would be in its
effect to divert attention, from Florida at ti tm,which is avery imp~or-.
ten an vitally urgent time to resue the ###~~ii~ federal work in, the vicinity
of th-e E~verglades,an~d Mr Wright is afraid that the # federal drainage
f-rce which he ha~sd hoped to have att work in Floridal before this,may be sent
to the northern L~ouisiangpand Arkansas section,and he -himself may~ be ordesdd
there in charge. This in :-Ir W's opinion,(and mine),wpould be fraught with
very serious consequences to thre drainage plans in Florida,atnd besides wold
p7revent his carrying out his ambitions to help you in the great work of dlrain-
ing theB Evetrilad~es.
Ho!w. of course if you come up hlere by or before the 19th instant,(wh~en Mr
El~lio-t; i to return here),you will undoubtedly be able to exert good in-
flluence~ on. both. TEliot anod- the Secretary of Agriculture, espec ially as I: amn
led to believe that by that time I. shall be possessed of useful confidential
info:ztrmatio for you to use in your talks;but aside from all that you may be
ab>le to do0 after you~~r arrival hrere,even now you might help th~e cause by
getting the two Florida Senators an~d suchof the Congressman and other
prominent men including+ 'E4~nr7lr -r3G;e State officials,and especially all the ca~bi-.
1~C eicals1tC net?.cialsyto write short urgent letters to the Secretary of Agricultneje,
requesting that the Dru''inage9 Eng'-i~ineer be allowed to come to Florida,eto,lB tc.
Those Statel officials ou~~,ht to be glad to get on the Draiznage wagon:l now
because~!5 i~t must be dk~ear to them that the question of drainag~e of swramp and
o.erlfl, wed leads has become one of the mos-t conspi cuourslty important public~t
amlentionaz;a.~vi every day gr~bwin mr and mzoreT~aor. Indeed Governor, I
cant see whyi',,(anld !I.r Wrighlt thinks as I: do),--I say I cannot see why you do
not request to have Mr Wright sent to Florida to talk to the people C44 Inda2
matters,say for example on the stuty and uses of the abil and its ?da.ptaLI
ability to raising certain thiingsy~and casuall:; talking up drainage~aa he
could and, could do,in a manner that wouldc stgac~sria your a~rgumentslt~ and sus~-
tain you before the people of the State. Congressmanl Hobson recently tried
this plan in. Alarbaana,and Congressma~n Small in H.OC. anSI~ T m told that the
several representatives of the 'AgricLltulturl Department that went to those
States talked3 so well to the people ha~t consideraible~ enthsusiasmn has been
awakened amongs1~',t them.l There3 Will be occasions at the-mid-wrinter znld State
fairs,when probably such_ talks might be of a~dvarntagge,but of course -that is
a matter about which you wNill beat knowr,arnd I beg not to be~ considentejd pre-
sump~tious in mgking the suggestion.
If you find it impyracticable to come to iWashington by the 19th instant,
it would be well for you to telepsach and write to the Secrtry f Ari
culture as wePrll- as to ~the Chb3ef of the DraiinaE~ Service,repJ~esting that t~he
largerd peasible force be put to work in Florida as soon. aWt possible to carry
on the codsr work boegEun by the drainag~e service last year. Conlfident.ikly~. I
will tell you that Mdr Wright has some big wcork mapped out for Florida a~nd
he is ambitious to do it himself but he seems to fear that there will be
a successful effort made to witch him off,anld may be leave Florida with
only nominal federal help this coming winter.
There is a greajr deal more to tell you but inasmuch as I am myr own ty
writer I do not feel equal to writing more at this time. I can say this i
Ld di tion. however r ; thle dr?.ilnge people are bound to recognize~ FloriLda as the!
bigge.sit and most p-ranising~ field to workI i~n,and- thsy know that ulnless thley
make some show of' wo~rk dowrn there a~t o~nCe~there may~ bep groundsl1~ folr the charge
of inconsistency~, rv.Gln thie d-rainage bill comes up in Congtesa th~is Ysesion.Is
is alreadyT inoiYI to some;F fe-.v tha~t pol3itics has~ en~tere!d,a I atm in~formed, in-
to the matter o~ ~aziTarigni ngork~ing~ parties of' theL fedrl:4?1 drainage~ serv~iog,
sad I told :'r Urigh~t todayt~ thait I could conceive of no weaker policy~ for
th1e Department to zidopt thansi that ofi yielding to? polit'ical pressures ##~ in
]matters which shlould~ bs ?alon tontrolls d by, th;e scie~tifi c and~ profnssion31
knowledge of the~ #~ expert dralLinae service men. I insisted tha~t








J.A.,D. to Governor B.

no matter what may be the nature tbr abrength of mere so-called politicala.
influenge"tor political "pulluin or from other sections,it would not only < 1
unjust___ ht mot nwse let th~e fact appear that Florida with her lazrge
area of drainable land go by the board simply because other sectionghnad
political representatives near the throne oft action here. Mfore than one
fo~u-rtho heetr ang or da~inal land lies in Florida,and~ one of
,the stronlgest argumtentasin flavor of federal gov~ernmental help for its drain-
agSe is found in thne promrise of what Florida is likely to do for the United
States (MM in.the single matter of Sugar supply alone. It goes without
arguent th-erefore,that whatever be the experimeneital or -##########o
permanent scheme of the Federal Drainage Servion; inl the tentative or the
:permanent work of reclaiming ',L/h#############over.Flowed, awamp or flooded
lanids in the U.S. o1rda is entitled to come fir t for its large share of
deserved attentio~n'nfot only on account of its pro rafa cazaclaime but because
th~e work: already done in Florida w~ohid likely go to waste if not continued
now24and in the opinion of the experts of the epadtment o giutr h
~E-e had charge of the preliminary investigations,eto, in the vicinity of
the Everglades,that is the most promising field of labor,an ought to be
left in ch~a'rge of the same men?.who have developed t~he scheme of the Everghadares
drainage,especially as those men are interested in the work and are biiu
to extend and complete it.
For your private information I will say that Mr Wright would prefer to be
allowed to take exclus'~~vive charge of whatever the~t U.S. g~overmet ingendsj to
do,but the jealous anxiety of oithe~r sections isa threoatening to diverthi
from that work., Not only is he one of the best expe~--~rtsT ls3prte butt
what is most important to you,dear Governor,he is your fren and admnirer,anld
not # besides believing in the drainage scheme in Alorida be~ieves n you
I think: when you and I meet we can evolve a plan to keep 't~r V~richlt on thgs
workr,for I thinbk everybody will agree that 19 is better to leave in charge.,F
of the Federal patrt of the w~orkr in the Everglad~essa mel whdo is inl symp~ath-y
TI th $ State plans and is willing to work and col-rp~en?.te withi the~ Governor
and3 his ##### chosen, agent,. Confidential ly--that is more than ever in
confidence-If have been informed 46## $$#Tinillel yod~ in te samne way),that
while TMr W. was in Florida #####tffE certain parties tried to get from him a
statement adverse to your plns, and I am putting it very mildly,when I
say thcht ml, :fo at~m impresseda me with th~e fact that you did not know w~hoaC '
yor ri-d ~ei loia fcus I: did not tczke that as an intention
to cast any reflection on Florida,but onlyr as indicating what I happen al-
ready to know,that some of the most smilirtg abrt o political aspiralts asee
aiways ready with a knife uip the? sleeve for I$200 ;~rju~it of~ course you under-
stanrd all this yourself,and I hope you will pa hon whatever excessive zeal
impels me to force it upon your attehtion at this time.
I beg your pardcbn for thisj long and ram~bing letter,but omHow970~ it sc.mdd
important fr me to tell your a3Ll that I: had heard in thils mattter,andc some of
t~he impressions the as h~lere had given me. Of course'1 could have condensed
myT letter but I am not an expert type-writer,arnd I deemed it wise to write
this letter ##~C with my. ownn hand on account of the confidences that concern
others,and wrhih might vi~tailly affect therm if my s ta t eemen~sts el ne
other es--unfriendlys eyes inpart~icula;r. Mr W. sseems to th-in that I: am
on thie ## right path to help you in tIs mat-ter, and I shower~Id him your letter
ausking me to call and giving the reasons therefor,which seemed to please him.
We are to have other conferences soon if occasion demands,and meanwhile as
soon as he gets a reply to his recent letter to you,he intends to write
to you again. He says however that it is not wise for hrim to attemlb t o
expLain matters to you in office letters which would-be agtbject to anyrbody al
scmrting,aznd I think you cmr understand from that th~e necessity for cnr-ng~
here yourself soon to talk with. him,and then do just exactly as he advises






J.A.D. to Governor B.

you to do for I a~m. uro that with his inside informnaionshe knows ~ati
best to do,anzd I: feel sure that h~e cah, be' trusted as a loya f friend of
Floida draina~ge and yourself.,

Pretty soon I will writes to you another important letter on the importancer
of getting several. of the Dlrainage service men to Florida soon. Congressman
Hobsn ater had fiht ith ecrtary\'1lson had four men detailed to go
into k## w= his conl'rcasional district in Ailabssna,and Congressmatn Small did
the same thing in B.C. and it pa believed that thi~t pla~n has helped not cbl~y
to enlig ign Ag gulace but poularize the drainage scheme,and this is not
w%-hat the Federal governent desires and needs right nowr,but ats I tike it the
State of Florida also needs it and you desire it. -Really Governor if you
coufld get two or three good Agricultural mendw in Florida now or soon,rith
M~r W. at their head there or here,I: can foresee for you a great change in
public sentiment in the sections that have opposed your plans,and there would
be a great tidal wave of popularity that could and would,if pyo will let it,
cacmp you from the ##~ Executine Office into the U.S.Senate,asnd for that reason
wont you permit me to ask you to go slow right nrow on anyy promise that might
commit gou to support anybody for ~the U.S.Senate. I knowr that this sort of
advice is not exactly in the line of thne confidehtial advice I am supposed
to offer to you as your "Confidental Mii~taryy Advisern but I choose to cED-
nect it with military advice because the best help I could do gor the Flnfida
military would be in t~he line of keeping you in political powster to help it.

HIoldcing myself always at your service,believe me deatr Governor with offirbialt
respect and warmeat personal regards,
Sincerely your friend,

Vetryl truly y'ours,

ANr ADDRESS.
Thle committee appointedt by the convention held in Nashville,. Tenn., Novembter 12, 1907, for
the purpose of consjidering~ the nomination of a Southern Demnocrat for the presidetncy? of the Urnited
States, make this address to the Democrats of the nation :
The Democratic party had its birth in the South. Thomuas Je~fersonl, whbo w~as the founder of
the party and the original promulgator of Democraltic principles, w~as a Southern manl. The greatest
successes of the party were under the leadership of Southe~rn mein, yect for mreljr than half a century-
the South has furnished no Democratic candidate for thle president. The natio-nal Democratic party
has nominated no Southern man for the first place ojn thle presidential ticket since: it was led b! James
K. Polk, in l844. During all these years the South has f'urnished a mnajority of the, electoral votes
in behalf of No~rthern candidates, and claimed nothing for itself.
W~e approach the subject in no sectional spirit. The Soutlh is n~o oultl!.ing province and the
recognitioni of a Southern man would, more ~than anything else, emphasize the unity of the nation.
The spirit that inspires this movement is entirely national. The executive anld cabinet officers and
our diplomatic representatives abroad for many years hlavce co~me from one section of the nation and to
continue that-policy would be to give.the government an aspect of secitionalism. The full andl free
participation of the South in all a~f~airs of the gove~rnme~tnt would obliterate that idea. It is with
a view of accomplishing this desirable result that th~is movelment is begun.
We do not wish, to nominate a rinan unless he stands p~re-emi nen tly- for state~smanship and execu-
tive ability, but we have a firm and abiding belief that there are manny menl of that character in the
South. The freer conditions would develop men w~ho would measure up to the standards of the
founders of Democracy and the men of those times~ when Southern statesmanship attracted the atten-
tion of the world. In all qualities of leadership the South is not behind other sections, anld at this
particular time it has men eilual to the best that the past hias produed.
As Southern,Dbinocrats, we present this claim of the So~uth~ to the Democrats of the nations and
ask their sympathy? and support, and ask that they remember thle fidelity with which the Southl has
always ad hcred to the Democraticcause. The Democracy of the South is entirely free from thle domina
tion of corporate'interest and predatory wealth. At thle same time the South has always been re-
garded as fhe bulwarke of conservatism, and ther victory of the Democratic party- under Southern
leadership would mean the restoration of the government to those principles which were laid down by
the foutiders of the republic wPhen that government was conside~red best which govetrned least.
The convention, which this committee represents, adopted unanim-ously a resolution pledging
itself to work for the selection of delegates from Tennejsse to- the National Democratic Con\ention in
1908 in favor of the nomination of a Southern man for President, and we ask the Democrats of every
State in the Union to cooperate with us in bringingr about this decsirable end. This mov~ement is
entirely impersonal and not in the interest of any special candidlate. Our sole desire is to present the
South as the best source from which an available candidate can be drawnl.
