The Increase Is due to several causes.
There are more corporations doing bus),

made In the reports sent In by banks and
financial Institutions which showed their
profits to be less than they really were.
Recently the department at Washing

CHIEF OF POLICE RETURNS
Henry Dunn Boosts the Everglade
District of Florida.
HAS CONFIDENCE IN SCHEME
Tells of the Efforts Ilrlnir Made to
Cnre for thr Heavy Ilalnfall
Which Annnallr Visits
Chief of Police Henry W. Dunn has re.
turned from Florida, where he spent a
vacation enjoying sunbaths and wadlnj
In the ocean. He also Inspects several
land schemes In which ho was Interested.
Tho everglades, he said, were dry as a
floor, and so he sought to persuade City
Electrician Waldemar Mlchaelsan from
purchasing a houseboat so he could live
on the twenty acres he has purchased In
"I paid about tHO for twenty acres in
the everglades," said Michaelsen. "I ses
a harvester company president purchased
sixty acres there for $160,000 and Is in)
proving It. I Intended to build a wlnte;
home there. Now I've been trying to a
my land by the gallon."
Chief Dunn said that was all foolish
ness, as the everglades would ultimately
be drained and the land would be as val
uable as any In the country and the rich
est in the world In point of fertility.
Real estate men are booming the whoi?
of Florida, tald the chief, who spent
most of his time In Miami. Several years
ago one man purchased a sand Island off
Miami, platted It, and although he only
paid SO cents an acre for it, ne Js now
selling it at from W0 to S5.200 a lot.
As to the drainage work In the ever
glades the chief feels certain the state
will successfully accomplish the task of
ditching It so that the annual rainfall of
fifty seven Inches will be carried off In
time for the gardeners top lant and
harvest their crops.
In the fruit produce business.
Ho Is survived by IiIh wife, a daughter
and two boiib. The funeral and burial
was at Los Angeleo yesterduy afternoon.
