DEATH FOR PROPAGANDISTS.
Methodists Urge it for All Who Oppose America’s Purpose.
PHILADELPHIA, March 15. — Death for German propagandists and American traitors was advocated today by the Philadelphia Conference, Methodist Episcopal Church, in resolution unanimously adopted at the 131st annual meeting being held here.
"We urge the speedy enactment of a law," the resolution states, "which will mete out to German propagandists and traitorous Americans the full penalty of spies."
Amid cheering and patriotic enthusiasm the 400 ministers attending the conference joined in approving the resolutions, which also affirmed loyalty to President Wilson and urged the immediate establishment of war prohibition, particularly the formation of a "dry" zone for the protection of soldiers and sailors.
