naaa Man's League.
New Rochelle, N. Y.—The ninth an
nual session of the Empire State Fed
eration of Women's Clubs was held In
St. Catherine's A. M. E. Zion churc h in
this city July 4-5 and was largely at
tended, having an approximate delega
tion of 200 from various parta of the
state. The convention was presided
over by the president, Mrs. M. C. Law
ton, who after devotional services
spoke briefly upon the recent riot in
East St. Louis and other outrages per
petrated upon colored citizens through
out the country.
Mrs. Lawton suggested that a tele
gram condemning such outrages and
expressing the sentiment of the feder
ation be sent to President Wilson. The
MM. M. C. LAWTON.
following named persons were appoint
ed as a committee for that purpose:
Mrs. Mary president of the
National Association of Colored Wo
men; Mrs. A. W. Hmiton, organiser of
the Empire State federation; Dr. V.
Morton-Jones, Mrs. Lutle Lytle Cowan-
McNeil and Mrs. M. J. Stuart.
The telegram as worded by the com*
mittee was also sent to the Associated
Press and to the daily press of New
Rochelle.
The recently added department of
arts and crafts, under the direction of
Mrs. C. H. Turner as chairman, gars
an excellent exhibition of the hand
work done among the clubwomen be
longing to the federation. Three prises
for efficiency along that particular line
were awarded to the successful com
petitors, as follows: Fire dollars In
gold to the Thimble club of Jamaica,
N. Y.; $2.50 in gold to the Art and
Embroidery club of Poughkeepsie,
N. Y., and $1 in new currency to the
811 rer Spray circle of New York city.
Ten new clubs were added to the
body by the organizer, giving to It an
added membership of 700 women. The
reports of the various clubs gave evi
dence of continued growth and devel
opment along the lines of racial uplift
and advancement. Elgbty-two dollars
was reported on the Douglass fund by
the clubs of the federation.
The vote on woman's suffrage was
almost unanimous. A special commit
tee was appointed to outline a definite
plan of work for the ensuing year,
which was as follows: Mrs. Cicily 8.
Gunner. HUlburn, X. Y.; Mrs. Wllker
son. White Itose Industrial Home For

BUSINESS WOMEN TO HOLD
MEETING IN PHILADELPHIA
National Convantion of Walkor Ropro
oontativoa Scheduled For Aug. 3a
Philadelphia.—' I The two big events of
national importance scheduled to take
place In this city the last week in Au
gust are the annual meeting of the
National Medical association and the
first national convention of representa
tives of the Madam C. J. Walker com
pany. This latter convention will be
composed solely of business women
and will be the only one of its kiqd
ever held la this section.
The object of this meeting, aside
from the bringing together of the rep
resentatives of the company from the
various parts of the country, is to dis
cuss and put into operation the plans
which Madam Walker has mapped out
for placing the work on a footing where
by all the workers may share alike in
the benefits according to the net re
sults of business.
In order to inspire the workers to
greater activity Madam Walker has
set aside SSOO to be distributed in
prizes to the representatives securing
the largest number of new workers,
the largest amount of business done,
etc. The convention will be held for
two days, beginning on Thursday, Aug.
30. The contest closes Aug. 1. All
persons who enter the contest should
register their uame at the home office,
640 North West street, Indianapolis.
Madam Walker deserves great credit
for opening up opportunities for the
women of the race to engage in busi
ness for themselves. Through her sys
tem of work hundreds of women are
making an independent living, and
there is room for hundreds of others
to do likewise. It is a long way from
the sugar cane field and the waehtub
at 75 cents and $1.50 per day to own
ership of a business enterprise which
commands high recognition by both
races In the mercantile world, yet this
Is what Madam Walker has accom
plished.
PRAISE FOR ROOSEVELT.
Abyssinian Baptist Church Commands
Stand Taksn Against Lynching.
Former President Roosevelt has been
flooded with letters and telegrams
from prominent men and women, civic,
political and religious organizations,
congratulating him for his speech In
New York iu which he denounced In
the most severe terms the wholesale
murder of innocent colored people by
mobs of white policemen and white
federal soldiers at East St. Louis re
cently.
Among the telegrams sent to Colonel
Roosevelt one which rings w*lth pa
triotic race pride and cries aloud
against cold blooded murder of human
beings is from the Abyssinian Baptist
church. New York, of which the Rev.
Dr. A. Clayton Powell Is pastor. The
telegram follows:
Theodore Roosevelt, Oyster Bay, N. Y.:
The 3.200 members of the Abyssinian
Baptist church by a unanimous and en
thusiastic vote express to you their sincere
and heartfelt gratitude and congratula
tions for your reply to the false, cowardly,
un-American, murder Inciting utterance#
of Samuel Gornpers In Carnegie Hall Fri
day night. Your timely and courageous
words in defense of the murdered and
maimed men. women and children who
were in Kail Bt. fjouis In pursuit of an
honest living are an added proof that you
are the biggest and most fair minded man
In the world.
You have revived a living hope In the
breasts of 12,000,000 Industrious, loyal,
peaceable yet greatly distressed citizens
and aroused, we trust, a vigorous senti
ment In the heart of all genuine Ameri
cans for a square deal. Unless the na
tional administration brings these mur
derers to Justice your noble stand will
make our government at Washington,
which Is preaching world democracy, a
laughing stock In the eyes of Germany
and Turkey. We are among the millions
who are earnestly praying that a man
like yourself may again occupy the White
House. With hlghosr esteem we are yours
for even handed justice and equal oppor
tunities.
THE ABYSSINIAN BAPTIST CHURCH.
A. Clayton Powell. Pastor.
