The Liberal victory in the 1880 general election was a cause for celebration within the peace movement in Britain. To capitalise on this new optimism, Henry Richard gave notice of a parliamentary motion in favour of a reduction of armaments, and began a six-month lecture tour to drum up support. The Peace Society had no desire to embarrass the new government that seemed prepared to commit itself to peace policies. Unwilling to sacrifice the good living he had made from peace activities, Lewis Appleton decided to set up a new society, the International Arbitration and Peace Association (IAPA). This chapter also discusses Britain's war with Egypt and the reaction of the peace associations to the crisis, as well as the transformation of the Workmen's Peace Association into the International Arbitration League.
