;i work they have undertaken. Mrs.
i cry of Colorado Springs, Colo., who
F ihT. ectecl corresponding secretarv of
X nh ItUc,rtion, as well as muny of the

, i ora woman's conditions and whut
they expected to accomplish by their
organization. Mrs. Emery said, In part,
that the home Is purified and that tho
children arc benefited through the en
lightenment of the mother. She de
plored the lax morals of many of the
colored girls of today throughout tho
West, nnd said that the colored wo
man was not yet out of bondage. She
expressed the opinion that the clubs In
Colorado had done more for tho colored
race, In purifying the home and lifting
tho children out of a demoralizing
state, than all Qf the churches.
Mrs. Smith of this city said Intelli
gence Is tho glory' of God, and that the
uplifting of the colored race lies in en
lightenment nnd organization. She
said that if this organization accom
plishes the objects before It. the colored
women will not bc the only benefi
ciaries, but that the whole race will be
uplifted. It was further said that it
Is the intention of the organizers to es
tablish later on a home for aged and
infirm colored women and men, and to
provldo a school for the education of
the incorrlglbles. It Is the Intention,
also, of the organizers to Incorporate
the organization as soon as possible.-
Address of tho President.
The address of tho president was
then read by Mrs. Taylor, and tho con
vention adjourned until 10 o'clock to
day. The president's address Is here
with given in full:
"I deem it a great privilege, as well
as a great honor, to have the oppor
tunity to meet you In this grand move
ment. Looking back to about six weeks
ago, when this organization was first
proposed, and to see you hero earnestly
""b"6i;u hi mis wonc, ic seems more
like a dream than a reality, and It Is
a proud day for us and brightens the
pathway of our girls, our future wo
men, teachers and mothers of the rnce.
"This is not our struggle rJone, be
cause we are only bearing the brunt of
the battle of others to come, who will
realize the necessltj' of organization. If
the Western Federation of Colored Wo
men can do the work that it Intends to
do. it will not only better the condi
tions of our homes, our girls and our
selves, but the entire West will be
cherished, helped and respected by
every good, fair-minded citizen.
Believes in Practical "Work.
"I trust you will accept these plain
spoken words in the spirit in which
they are Intended. I lay no claim to
oratory, and my ambition has never
centered In that direction. I believe
In getting down to business and doing
practical work, and my chief aim Is to
say something that will encourage you
to press on In this effort, and not get
discouraged. A sure successful future
awaits you, and review of what you
have already accomplished will tend to
uplift our people In this Western coun
try. "I shall devote whatever talent I may
have by way of argument to convince
any one who oppose our efforts here,
that they are wrong. I shall endeavor
to create a higher standard for our wo
men In the eyes of the good white peo
ple of this section of the country and
the world at Marge. I shall do all I
can to stimulate an earnest desire
among our women for a love of race
pride, pure home life, self respect and
"I am truly proud of this movement;
being a race woman I have looked with
sorrow upon the condition of our wom
en for many years and I believe that
the colored women should stand to
gether more than any other class of
civilized women In the world for many
Their Early Limitations.
First As daughters, our fathers were
not In a position to give us the advan
tages that were necessary for life's
equipment for the future;. It Is too well
known the conditions surrounding our
early girlhood. Many of our parents
did not at that time have the right of
citizenship, therefore could not do any
more for us than they did.
"Second As sisters, our brothers
have been indifferent about our future
welfare and did not extend a helping
hand, thus we were In so many in
stances forced into servitude and there
by compelled at tender ages to take up
the burdens of life against such odds
that many found the struggle too great
and fell by the wayside, while others
sought to find relief In marrying men
that so completely failed In their ob
ligations as husbands that the last
state was worse than the first.
"Third As wives, our lot In many in
stances has been cast amid very hard
envolrments, thus we have had to labor
and struggle against difficulties thtt no
other class of women has ever known,
and In ur loyalty to our husbands, our
unceasing devotion to our children and
love for home, we have forgotten our
fidelity to each other and sadly failed
to school ourselves In that broad theory
of acquainting ouraelvec with each
other. While I do not believe that this
has been for lack of Interest we have
for each other,- because our women are
too noble for that. But In the multi
plicity of our responsibilities, It waa an
"Fourth Our care3 as wives and
mothers have been made more ardent
by the fact that our husbands have not
had the same advantage of plenty of
work, good and paying positions like
their moro favored brothers, the whites,
where every avenue of labor Is open
to him; so we have had to help carry
the burden In the support of the fam
ily, and thereby have not had but lit
tle time to think of the great advan
tage of organized forces. We have been
loo busy to see the lasting benefit the
federations have been to our more fa
Need of Closer Union.
"Fifth I hope we have como to the
place where we can see nnd feel the
need of a closer union, where we can
fully understand the meanings of those
fjacred words that have mnde our hearts
ring so often with Joy. 'Help ue to help
each other, Lord; each other's cross
to bear. In my estimation, there Is
no class of women that needs each oth
er's help so much as we as mothers,
and especially the young mothers of
today, who seem to be utterly Incapa
ble of managing their offspring; that to
me It's a question nv to what the rising
generation Will bo. Whon nnnv nnH
think of the growing tendency on the
part ,of our young married women to
tamper with nature: nnd to end their
earthly existence rather than to be
come mothers, I pity with deep emo
tion young womanhood, and think how
much they need help. Therefore, my
heart and soul are with this federa
tion, the object of which Is to bring nnd
bind our women together In a helpful
Organisation. Is Inspiring.
"Sixth I have noticed that organiza
tion among men began In the early
ages, but not until the last quarter of
the nineteenth century did women bind
themselves together In mutual helpful
ness for united effort. The principle of
organization Is Inspiring, it causes the
reaching out of one soul In aid and
comfort for another. The club move
ment is a part of the great educational
tidal wave which la sweeping over the
entire country. I noticed with pleas
ure the organizing of a State federa
tion for Colorado, at Colorado Springs,
and the following message was for
warded to me:
" '945 Van Buren Avenue.Pueblo, Colo.,
June 2, 1901. My Dear Mrs. Taylor:
We, the colored women of Colorado, In
our first meeting of the State federa
tion, highly Indorse your move to or
ganize a Western Federation of Wom
" 'MRS. IDA JOYCE JACKSON,
" 'Fannie Elliott, Corresponding
Of Equal Help to Colored "Women.
"In reply to this kind indorsement I
will say, may God bless the noble wom
en of Colorado, may their excellent and
timely action be an everlasting Incen
tive to all the women of the Western
States. Since such organization has
been helpful to the white women, they
will be equally beneficial to colored
women; If the white women, with all
their knowledge, which Is power, nnd
their wealth, which Is Influence, feel
the need of such organizations, how
much so ought we, who need not only
tho congenial companionship, but that
loyal devotion that will bind us to
gether In that helpful way that will lift
each other up on higher ground, that
our children and our children's children
may have brighter and higher aspira
tions, may achieve greater success, and
that unborn generations may bo In
spired to greater aggressiveness from
the results of our organizations. And
twenty-five years hence, as this organ
ization shall wend its way and our race
will get a hearing, the muse of his
tory will put Phoclon for the Greeks,
Brutus for the Romans, Hampden for
the English, Lafayette for the French,
Lincoln as the bright, consummate
flower of our earlier civilization, and B.
T. Washington the Mosett of the South
land. Then, dipping her pen In the
sunlight, she will write in the clear
blue above them all. the name of the
Western Federation of Colored Wom
en, for the upbuilding of the colored
women of the West."
The convention will be In session to
day and tomorrow forenoon and will
close with a reception and ball tomor
row night. It was arranged to give the
reception and ball In the Legislative
hall In the City and County building
and the promoters were under the opin
ion that they had received permission
to use the hall for this purpose. It now
transpires that neither the city or coun
ty officials Intend to permit this or
any other organization to use the joint
building for cither dances or banquets.
Other arrangements will therefore have
to be mnde by the committee In charge.
The order of business for today and
tomorrow's session Is as follows:
Wednesday, 10 a. M. Opening exer
