MATERIAL WEALTH REAL CAUSE
WASHINGTON. May 20. Id be
half of the bishops of the Methodlnt
KpUeopal ehnrch, Bishop Earl Crans
ton of Washington made public today
a epectal "rail to prayer." appointed
to bo read In all Methodist chore hen.
"Not nee- a day only nor merely
when conTenlcnt, but In our evey
thought of God let th-s
crjr of our heart Incessantly ascend
for the peace of Europe and the
world," ray the appeal.
The text of the call follows:
'In the divine ordrrtne of events tt
ha been given to Ameilran Methodism
te develop and occupy the world-parish
talmed hy the during; faith of John
Wesley when Methodists were a rieeptsml
people. The Methodist K.pl-opl church,
now firmly planted on every continent
of the slobe. most therefore recognise
at this crucial period In human affairs
Its honorable and reeponslhle relation to
all races and conditions of msnklnd. The
tenure of Its own spiritual life and leader
ship ts at slake In Its attitude toward t'nls
sacred obligation. . From the beginning
Methodism ha conceived of the king
dom of Ood as a universal brotherhood
founded In the spirit and teachings of
Jesus Christ, with Ood aa One rather.
Iove aa the supreme law. and all people
and people eligible on eual terms to all
1i benefits tor time and eternity. What
ever obscures this vision of the king
dom of Ood bar the way to Ita g lorlmi
realisation. Tb prayer, -Thy Kingdom
Corm,' baa therefor ever been the first
petition oa all humj.n tong-uea conse
crated by the hallowing of the Father's
name. But now. to the horror ot angels
aa4 at men. the vision Is for the time
lost by the one continent that haa been
beyond ail other sanctified by the blood
of Christian martyrs, and the vole ot
Ood silenced In the councils of ths em
bittered nations. Europe Is erurulfed In
unutterable woe and the world Is filled
with aa agony of dread. Qirlstlan
aoldter are dally passing In multitude
to Judgment with the blood of fellow
Christian an their hands. On every
wind tae walla of widowed mothcra and
orphaned children are mingled with the
groan 1 mangled and dying1 men.
Material Wealtk ael at It All.
Under such conditions your chief pas
tore can he no longer silent, nor can they
meet their duty by a perfunctory es
hortatten to formal prayer for divine
Interposition. Not until we realise that,
beneath all that appears, this wsr with
It awful camsge I but a strui for
commercial supremacy, can w under
stand hew alien to hereditary dynasties

ple are not bom in heaven. lt victory

heart have ceased to beat, the vassalage
of human soul to material waaitn,
wealth and power will remain the sure
harbinger of other wars, of Increasing
deadlines aa suborned Hanr add to
the machinery of destruction, unless Ood
shall mightily intervene by unseen force,
whoa atratestea we mar not discern but
whose eilstenc and efficiency we dare
not doubt. What w do know Is that
willing, loving, obedient hearts are the
conductor of thee divine force In
human affaire. There are enough praying
eoula In America to call down a truce
on every battle front tf onca they felt
the agony of 'Chrlet Intercession. That
our eountry I aa yst free front the mad
nee of strife should the more move us
to Importunate and Increaalng petition
that Ood will make III volo ta be
everywhere heard ag&ln en land and sea.
Only thus at such a time can we witness
our faith In Ood and our tore for mn.
Only thus tan we restrain among our own
people the latent spirit of war that I
already conjuring every untoward Inci
dent abroad into aa Intended Insult to
our flag. Only thus can we subdue the
lifting resentment of our own heart
against unjust foreign criticism of our
nation at this crisis In ita history. eVi
the Itplrtt ef eur Xord plead with u
. by every oonsMeratton of peace at home,

'Therefore, your chief pastors have
commissioned me a their vote of the
'hurch to call every member of our com-1

Mr. Angell fairly ran into the apeaker'

I do not believe that this will be the war
that will end war. The mere piling up ot
