Colorado, the i first state to act when the impor-, tance of the bread basket s part 11 -war became known, has virtu1 completed orgaxyzation the aiimiin . trative machinery for the biggest 'foo.1 drive" in the history of the country. Immediately following the declaration of war, Gov. J. C. Gunter anticipated the national movement by naming a ways and means commit- tee, hearted bv J.' K. Mullen, president , of the Colorado Milling and Elevator Co., and Ex-Gov. Amnions, one of the state's largest farmers. The committee already has com-pleted organisation of a sub-commit- . tee in every county of the state.. Working on the assumption that; money, or its equivalent credit, is the greatest need of farmers to meet the crisis, the committee has assured tarmtrs capital with which to finance their food-raising operations. The heme gardening movement was. given tremendous momentum by the outbreak of war. The Civic and Com-' mercial Association of Denver is urging a movement whereby em-, ployts will agree to pay full wages to employes, but allow them one working day off each week, provided they work their gardens on that day.-Under the auspices of the Denver -Mothers' congress, .V.Os packages of, feeds are being 1 istributed without cost to school children. . Mrs. Cecelia Ward Shea, a prominent' civic worker, has inaugurated a proj-r ect. advocating that the state itself turn farmer, and lease or rent ap-, proximately 13."0.00i acres of till- . able land in the state which haa -never been cultivated, cub-letting this to families who would come inttt-the stt?, she believes, if they were assured of ground to farm, at a lotr, rental. - -i HOW U.S. AND SPAIN ; WENT TO WARIN189SV Nineteen years ago the United State found itself in a tate of war with Spain. As in the present instance, the American eovernment left it to tbe other party to cay whether or not war was to lc the manner in which the dispute was to lie settled. On Feb. 1. the United Statee battleship Maine, which had been sent to Havana on Jan. 2.". was destroyed in Havana harbor by an explosion, with a loss of 2tXJ lives. An American board of inquiry, after investigation, reported to the navy department on March 21 that the explosion was caused by an exterior mine, the principal reason for this decision being the upheaval of the ship's bottom. w On April L'O President McKinley approved a resolution demanding the withdrawal of Spain from Cuba, and desienated noon of the 23d - as the latest date for a reply to the demand. Before the resolution could be delivered ly the United States minister in Madrid. Spaiu handed him bis passports. On April C2 Pr-eident McKinley declared a blockade on Cuban ports; on the 24th the Spanish government declared war, and on the 25th the United States congreps declared that a state of war d s,ince April 21 FREE GRAZING LAND PART OF FOOD DRIVE. j i 7A ! St. t'3'j'. May "- Four million seres of land in Northern Wisconsin and Minnesota will be offered free for grazing to farmers and stockmen of the middle west in the hope of releasing farm land for raising war crops. The St. Paul association is compiling the list which will be given wid-" est publicity in an attempt to get' stockmen to use this land and release more fertile land for crops. Farmers owning only small herds" would organize, send a representative to select a tract of grazing land, and ship their herds to be cared for by a herder. Community action of this kind would be an economy to farmers tnd would increase materially, it as pointed out. Wilson Fifth War President.
