Peace activism underwent a disappointing relapse during the intervention of Britain in Egypt and Sudan. The established primary movement faltered through difficulties in both financial and ideological aspects as one of the most conspicuous independent publicist W. T. Stead became one of the peace movement's biggest burdens as he did not take the peace cause until 1894. In order to mobilize support on particular issues, primary associations created ad hoc bodies one clear example of which is the Arbitration Alliance created in 1894 to win support from the churches on specific issues. This period is disappointing in the history of peace movement as primary associations left the goal of promoting ideas to rather focus on their own internal problems.
