TO NEGRO WOMEN
Residents of Brooklyn Protest Against
Establishment of Branch of W. C.
T. U. in Their Neighborhood.
(Special to Tho Times-DUpatoo.)
NEW l'OUK, January 27.?Tho people
of the fashionable section of Brooklyn
liavo protested against tho establishment
of a colored branch of the Young Wo
mon's Christian Association in that part
of tho city. Tho. Young r mien's Christ?
ian Association tried to purchase a house
In that section for a branch for colored
women, und tho residuila promptly met
and protested to tho owners of tlie prop?
erty that Its sale for biicI? a purpose
would decreaso the vaino of all the prop?
erty in tho neighborhood, and wouldj
clear tho neighborhood ot all Ita better
class of residents. All sold last night
thnt if tho proposed colored branch of
tho Young Women's Christian Associa?
tion was established, they would move
out or the neighborhood;
It looks now as if there wjll bo no
colored branch In that section. The resi?
dents say their wives nnd da|ghters shall
not bo forced to pass and repasa negro ..'
women on the streuts every day, almost;
at their doors, and everything else aaldo,
tho mere Idea of these negro Women ana
girls being so close to them is horrible.
