The resolution declared that the convention felt" compelled to place on record its "most severe disappointment of the War administration of the Borden government." The resolution charged the Borden government with gross incompetency and inefficiency, "We condemn it," it concluded, "as no longer entitled to the confidence of the people." Premier Sifton spoke briefly in moving the resolution and delegate Laidiaw from British Columbia seconded the resolution. Mr. Sifton declared that there had been partisanship in tho raising of Canadian forces "an outrageous exhibition" he said. He asked the convention to rise nnd express its feelings on the resolution. The delegates stood without any exception, ao far as could be seen from tho platform, cheered vigorously and gave three cheers for Alberta's premier. "The resolutions committee," said Premier Sifton, "Is working on its resolution on. the conduct of the war, Very much along the lines of tho resolution you have heard. You probably will have it this afternoon perhaps not until tonight." The convention adjourned until three o'clock. Saskatchewan delegates met at 1.45 p.m. in private session. The delegates will consider resolutions doaling with the Canadian Northern railway and with war profits, it is expected, before the resolutions on war measures are taken up, Favor Dominion Prohibition ..Winnipeg, Aug. 7.~The Liberal convention ot the (our western provinces JuBt before adjournment at eleven o'clock tonight adopted with no opposition a resolution approving of a measure ot Dominion-wide prohibition resolution was moved by Mrs. Charles llobson of Winnipeg and seconded by Mrs. Tedford of Yorkton, SasU., ami read as follows: "That as a war measure and with the object of utilizing to tho fullest extent the food values within the Dominion, the federal government should take possession of all stocks of alcohol, and the federal parliament should prohibit the manufacture, importation, exportation, storage or sale of intoxicating liquors within the Dominion of Canada." The remarks of the ladies who sponsored the motion were brief and there was no other comment. The morning of the first day of the convention was spent in organization and the afternoon nnd evening in the discussion and adoption of resolutions which came to the convention with the indorsation of the committee on resolutions. The convention dealt with the matters of land settlement, homestead rights for women, British Columbia lands, Prince Rupert docks, the price of farm implements, rural credits, electoral reform and prohibition during the evening, supplementing action in the afternoon on the questions of natural resources, school and titles and woman suffrage. The resolutions committee still has to deal, it was reported, with the questions of the fiscal policy, banking problems, settlement of returned soldiers and soldiers' pensions and the ralway situation. There has been no discussion in the open convention of war measures and party leadership. The name of Sir Wilfrid Laurier had not been mentioned by any speaker before this evening, when Delegate J. E. Varley, of Calgary, declared that he had faith "in one leader. Sir Wilfrid Laurier," there was considerable cheering. Previously Fred Stork of Prince Rupert, had spoken Sir-Wilfrid's name in a somewhat similar connection. Mr. Varley at 10.40 o'clock tonight, moved that the convention adjourn until the morning, so that the resolutions committee might_have plenty of time to get down to the real business of the convention. He said he considered resolutions such as these with which they had been dealing important, but he thought there was little use in spending much time on them until it was seen if the convention was united on its main business. Mr. Varley's proposal was voted down and the convention took up the prohibition measure before adjourning. A fellow delegate intimated that he held the same views as Mr. Varley on the leadership, but he thought the convention arrangements should not be interfered with. "Most of the cabinet ministers and federal and local members are members of tho resolutions committee, and they have spent the greater part of the day out of the main convention hall. Dr. Michael Clark, M.P., left for the east this morning, having taken no active part in the convention beyond an appearance at the meeting of Alberta delegates on Monday afternoon. STAMPEDE (CONTIXUKD fkom FitOl^T PaOI) The wild went flavor will bo. strong throughout the big stampede. No money is being spared. There have been occasional complaints-that tho galo and grandstand charges being made by tho committee are rather nteop, but they point out that tho cost is high, and in order to give tho people, the real goods and something different- from the small stampedo to which''they are accustomed they must mako u fairly high charge, but they also point out that It is no higher than tho ordinary thoatro ticket wliilo tho program Is much more costly. It is atso to ho remembered thnt it is the Intention of the combined Lcth-bridge, Magrath and Raymond fair boards to hold the stampede hero every year as tho vuudevillo end of the exhibition and in order to create tho best impression which will bring crowds next year they are leaving nothing undone.

The second day will see everything in smooth running order, while Friday will bo the wind-up day when the finals of the big events will be staged. IS EXONERATED Moose Jaw, Sask.. Aug. 7.-Rev. J. D. Harley, whose sermon In St. Andrew's Presbyterian church Sunday evening resulted in a request to Mayor Davidson to have him sent out of town or interned, today in letters in local papers explains himself and denies that the statements attributed to him were his own views, and says that they were made as being the views of the "American on the street at the early stages of the war." The session of St. Andrew's church at a special meeting held last evening exonerated him from all suspicion of being pro-derman and in letters to the local press state that his sermon was not only misunderstood but also distorted. They add. however, that "in view of the present inflamed condition of the public mind" his statements were ill-advised. The letter from the session concluded the statement that Dr. Harley had been asked to preach two more Sundays at St. Andrew's.
