To Improve Condition of Negroes
New York, Oct. 1.—About a hundred delegates are attending a convention in Brooklyn, having for its object the formation of a national association to improve the conditions of the colored people. Rev. Dr. Jean R. Babbitt, in addressing the convention deplored sectionalism, urged race harmony and pointed out the great dangers in the present situation of dragging the race question into politics. The object of the delegates is to organize a co-operative society and to establish such commercial and industrial enterprise as life insurance, shoe and provision stores, and anything for the benefit of the race.

Mayor Seth Low, of New York, was the orator at the banquet to the visiting mayors in New York. Mayor Howell, of Atlanta, was at the banquet.

The Democrats of New York City have nominated George B. McClellan for Mayor. He is a worthy son of the distinguished Federal General of that name and known as “Little Mac.” Young McClellan is a member of Congress from one of the New York City districts. He will be backed by a united Tammany, which makes his prospects exceedingly flattering.
