Now York, Nov. 111. Two lloreu on
slaughts on the church of Homo on
livened the proceedings at to-day's
session of the general missionary com
mittee. On eaeli occasion an audience
which filled every part til" the Iui-kc
iiudltorlum in St. Paul's M. K. church,
"where the committee Is mcetlnc;, broke
into applause, and no effort was made
by the chair to check the demonstra
tion of approval.
The general committee, which is
composed of all the bishops and lead
ins divines In the Methodist church
of America, has been In session dally
tdnce last AVednesdny. Upon several
occasions during former sessions when
reference has been made to anything
pertaining1 to the 1 toman Catholic
church, the same spirit of d 'fiance
3ias been apparent, I'pun no former
occasion has that church been de
nounced in terms uiuitmlitlcd, nor has
ihe approval of the audience b:'en
given vent in so vigorous applause.
The first person to advance to the
attack was Bishop Goodsell, of Ten
nessee. In the course of an address on
the work of the Methodist Kpiseopal
church In various parts of Europe he
bad occasion to speak of the wont
done in Italy and conditions obtaining
there. It was in the recital of the
latter the bishop used such strong lan
lluallc against the church of Koine.
The bishop said:

By Hxeliuho Whe from The Associated Picm.
Boston, Nov. 19. George F. Wash
burn, president of tho Bryan club of
Massachusetts and treasurer of the
national committee of tho People's!
party, has appealed to the "reform
forces of the country" for the prompt
organization of a new party, uniting
Bryan Democrats, silver Republicans,
Populists and other smaller bodies,
and to be "led by the man of the
hour, whoever be may be," Jlr. Wash
"It Is beyond range of human prob
ability that Bryan will again become
candidate of the Democratic party. In
deed, It is admitted by leaders of tho
new Democracy that he was defeated
by Democrats to get rid of him.
"He will not surrender to this ele
ment, even to be president, lie will not
lopndlate his recorel. Ho will not dis
appoint his friends. But he can lead
to victory a new party, conducted on
safe und conservative yet progressive
lines.' Therefore, to hold what wo
have and maintain our present mo
mentum a nuw party must be formed.
It is the quickest road to ultimate suc
ce;v. "The last two national campaigns
have taught us important lessons. We
cannot longer put new wine into old
bottles; we cannot entrust new Ideas
to old leaders. The control of the Dem
ocratic party will now revert to Gor
man, Hill and Croker and the old ma
chine regime they represent. This will
create a cleavage between the reac
tionists, with old Ideas, and the re
formers, with new Ideas. To succeed
our work must be on a high political
plane absolutely clean and far abovu
tho iniro of machine methods.
"Accordingly, I propose that at nit
early date we have a conference of the
leaders of the parties referred to, in
the central part of the country, for t
purpose of offering an immediate
union, that wc may begin at once tho
organisation of the now party. These
forces should promptly come together.
We must unite or disintegrate. The
sooner this Initial step is taken the
better, so that the great new move
ment may begin with the dawning of
the nsw century."
