Midway between Hen- of Quality Right MffiGl EflEVEWED 'GLADES SALE (By HERBERT FELKEL) Tallahassee, May 8. Attorney General Van C. Swearingen has given out the following statement; "I dp not Intend to enter Into x newspaper controversy with any one rel ative to any matter, but , th staements contained in an Interview given out by Senator Singletary regarding sales of JUverglades, .In which he referred to m, are so Incorrect that It makes it neces sary for me to reply thereto. t "There has not bean single acre of land sold by the trustees of the Ever glades Since I have1 been one of tho trustees of the Internal Improvement fund for $5.00 per acre. If Senator Sin gletary did not make a tnore thorough investigation of the Everglades situation than he did of the information given out In his - statement that I was a party to the sale of the lands to the Tatum Land Company, then I do not wonder that he Introduced and is supporting the bill for the sale of the Everglades, This land was sold to the Tatum Land Company August 2, 1917, while' Judge T. F. West was attorney general, and Judge West as a . trustee, as the minutes show, refused to agree to this sale unless the Tatum Land Company would enter Into a con tract to build a railroad; as a part -t the consideration, which they did. - 'I do not know of but one gubernatorial campaign based upon the drainage of tha everglades and that . was made by the late lamented Napoleon B. Broward. No one doubts today that the people of Flor ida acted wisely in 'electing Governor Broward, and thereby be gan reclaiming for the state of Florida four million acres of land which at the time every body said was not worth anything, and now even the senator himself admits it is worth from eight to ten million dol lars. In my opinion, as stated, these millions of acres are worth to the people of Florida from forty to fifty million dollars. "The provisions of this bill Jn disposing of the Everglades lands of the Internal Improvement fund raise certain other cje rlous questions which are bound to be considered in making a disposition -f such lands, especially when such dispo sition is absolutely contrary to the terms of the grant under which said lands were received by the state as a gift from the federal government. "These lands are among those granted to the state by tho United States under tho Swamp and Overflow Land Grant Act of September 28, 1850. In making the said grant the congress of the United States used the following language: United States Statutes. L-519-520, Section 29 'Provided, however, that the pro ceeds of the said lands, whether from sale or by direct appropriation in kind, shall be applied exclusively, as far ts necessary, for the purpose of reclaiming said lands by means of levees and drains aforesaid.' The language of the above act is clear and Its meaning unmistaka ble. "The state accepted the grant with the conditions thereof, and in the Internal Improvement Fund act of the Legisla ture of Florida, January 6. 1855. Section IIS, the following language is found: 'That I the trustees of the-lRtemal Improvement 'Fund shall hereafter fix the price of the public lands Included In the trust, having J due regard to their location, value for agricultural purposes or on account of the timber or naval stores, and such ar rangements for the drainage of the swamp or overflowed lands as In their Judgment may be most advantageous to the Internal Improvement Fund and the settlement and cultivation of the lands." Since that time numerous acts of tho j legislature of Florida have recognised the conditions of the "grant and have made deposition of the lands thereunder. The records of . the laws of this stae contain many such acts which may readlly-Be referred to. - "The trustees of the Internal improve- Hunt und have continuously recognized- tne binding obligation resting upon them through the grant of September 28, 185" by the United States to the state, ani have been and are actively and ener getically engaged in carrying out the pro visions of said grant In the drainage and reclamation of lands so granted. "The courts of this stae have consist ently ;, recoglnsed . the ' conditions under which thes lands came to the state and so have tht courts of the United States, of which the following brief reference serves to Bhow the tenor. The Supreme Court of Florida " in Trustees v. Bailey, 10 Fla. 125, said: lf it be once con ceded that the fund may be applied tt other purposes than those mentioned in the act, there will be no limit, and in a short time1 ' we shall probably see tr.e whole fund fritted away in a thou sand local enterprises. If we permit tne fund to be applied to new, disjointed, fragmentary enterprises unconnected with any system . we shal see the whole fund exhausted, nothing great accomplished.' The Supreme Court of Florida tn Trustee v. St. Johns Railway Company, M Fla. 631. referring to language used by the United States Supreme Court 'It Is not doubted that the grant by the United States to the state upon con ditions and the acceptance of the grant by the state constiutted a contract' has the following to say: 'It cannot be sup posed that the legislature by this act fLuvture Kills 7,000 Annually Seven thousand Masons each year are laid away the burial certificate being marked "Rupture. wny?

By referring to trie act of congress we find that the object of the. grant was to enable the state to reclaim these lands for settlement and estivation. We are of the opinion in passing this act the legislature intended a- on of its main oblects to carry into effect the purpo3) of this grant. That surn was the intention is evidence f-om the 16th section. To strike out the 16th and 29th sections would render the act obnoxious to the constitutional prohibi tion upon the state's forbidding the pass age of any law Impairing the obligation of contracts, for without these sections the act would be a total diversion of this magnificent fund from the object of the grant by congress and an exclusive application of It to other and different purposes from that contemplated in the grant.' "The state board of education, which is composed of a majority of the same officers who constitute the trustees of the Internal Improvement Fund, consider these , lands so valuable that it will not sell the sixteenth section of each town ship thereof, which are state school lands, at the prices now prevailing for the sale of Everglades land. The board believes these lands will be much more valuable he longer they are held, and by so solding them the greater benefit will ul timately be obtained for the school chU dren of the state. .1 am among those who also believe that other sections ot land than the alxteenth will increase in value as time passes, and therefore do not feel that It Is opportune at this time to provide for the disposition of the Everglades lands held by tVe trustees of thfc Internal Improvement Fund, as pro vided for in the Singletary bill. "I am impressed that If Senator Single tary understood what is accomplished ty the sale of these lands, which are being sold from time to time by the trustees bl& attitude would be, perhaps, different even towards bis owt bill. These sales are made for the purpose of procuring funds with which to carry on sub-draln-ag work and pay taxes.

Upon this Iasl3, If there is now cr.e m'.Mon two hundred thousand acres of ia;id belonging to the state, there will be, when the drainage Is completed, nine hundred thousand acx.es that the state rra.y thereafterwards dispose of at prices paid for drained land, which, upon the basis thaot such lands are now selling for, will average something like forty to fifty tlf'htrs per acre. This would bring quite a different amount from ten mil lion dollars with which to endow the staa school fund. ''I cannot understand why Senator Sin gletary desires to sell these lands im mediately and why at such prices elgnt to ten dollars per acre. There are many hundreds o acres yea thousands of acres, for which the trusteees will receive one hundred dollars per acre when the drain age is completed. I would ask the sena ator, as a business proposition, th'.s question Suppose he owned a hundred acres of land and someone offered hl-n ten dollars per acre in its wild state and the cost would be ten dollars per acre to prepare it for cultivation, and after hav ing it so prepared he could sell it for from forty to one hundred dollars per acre, would it not be good business polk.y to clear the land and make the additional thirty to eighty dollars per acre? To sell these lands to a large cor poration or syndicate, or to anyon else to speculate on, and stop the raeclamn tlon, would be to undo the work that was begun by the great Broward, and would deprive the people of our state, who are desirous of obtainlg these lanas on easy payments, of an opportunity to do so, and would retard the development of one of the greatest bodies of land in the world, and also deprive the school children of a fund of about Forty Million Dollars."
