May Step In (Special to Hw.* Iferal'l) Kdmonton, Feb. UIS.-The necessity for being prepared to make proper provision for the returning soldiers is. Premier Stewart declared in the debute on the address in tiie house thin afternoon? the reason why the government this session is cutting public expenditure to the very limit. Certain indispensible expenditures must be incurred in the maintenance of roads, and buildings, and in the construction of new highways where they are absolutely necessary. But beyond this the government will not embark in any undertakings involving large expenditures of money. The legislature resumed at three o'clock after an adjournment of some weeks to permit the Premier to attend at. Ottawa the conferences of the premiers, and the Federal cabinet. The first speaker in the continued do-bate on the address was George Hoad-ley, Okotoks, the leader of the opposition who was followed by Premier Stewart. The other speakers were Cap*. Kobert Pearson. McKinney, Clareshohn, and Di\ Stanley, Jlj^h ltiver. * Mr. Hoadley C. A. COTTERRELL Who has been transferred from the superinfendency of the Lethbridgc division of the C.P.H. to the Medicine Hat division. I C. A. COHERE!! I TO GO TO THE Has Been Transferred To Head of Important Main Division Line C. A. CnUerall. superintendent of the Lelhbridge division of the C.P.H., has been transferred to Medicine Mat as superintendent of that division, while Supt. Mcintosh has been transferred ) to Jjethbridge to take charge here. The Mr. Hoadley referred to the great loss the house had sustained in the death of Lieut. Stauffer. who had been deputy speaker, and expressed appreciation of the services of all who had gone overseas. In this connection he urged the importance of the conserving not only the energy of the nation, but "of the individual for the great purposes they had in view in the present war. ., measure of civil service reform he remarked that, in view of tho attitude j of the opposition in the past, it was unnecessary for him to say that they would.welcome a fair and square effort to deal with the questions.' They were ^lad that at least something of concrete and real benefit would he accomplished during: the life of the present session. On public health he saw the responsibility for the health of tho people, and preserving it, was absolutely and unalterably on the shoulders of the government. There was no possibility for the escape of the government of the onus if they passed bills that in operation were found ineffective, and force of circumstances would compel them to take drastic steps for the preservation Of therdiealth of the people. Approves of it Mr. Hoadley said he approved of the proposal to raise the Patriotic Fund by taxation, and said that had always boen, he thought, the policy of] the opposition in the house. Commending the government on the economy proposed he remarked that they would have every assistance from the opposition in the elimination of those unnecessary from the staffs of the different departments, but when they came to the question of economy in relation to road construction a difficulty arose in defining what was possible along those lines. If they did not offer the greatest facilities to the people tb get their produce to market they were adding to difficulties that already existed. . Therefore, he would urge upon the government a reconsideration cf their programme in this respect. Must Be Co-Operation. On the question of the re-e'stab!Uh-nient of .the soldiers in civil life, the leader of the opposition saw the beat" results could be obtained by co-opera-Uon between the provincial and Dominion governments, and ho emphasized that the motive behind any HCheme of readjustment should be the placing of each man in the place he was best fitted to fill. He strongly condemned the suggestion that to the soldiers should be relegated the land thrown aside by the settlers. That would not be giving them a square deal. There was plenty of land near the railways, and tho cities, and the soldiers should be dealt with in the spirit they had shown in going iorthHo tight the battles of the country. In regard to the workmen's compensation act he observed that the fact that such a measure would bo introduced snowed the necessity for it. As he does not desire to embarrass, anyone he would leave the subjec^ with that comment. Concluding Mr, Hoadley impressed Upon the government tho importance, of consulting men who had tbe confidence of the soldiers or the soldiers thomselves, and appointing soldiers on any hoard� that might be established in connection with their interests in the province. Premier Stewart Premier Stewart in replying said that the debate on the address was que in the fact that public matters mid not be discussed in anv acri-mqnious spirit. At the.same time he wo'uld say it would be detrimental to good government if criticism should announcement was made this morning anil Snpt. Cotterell leaves tomorrow night For Ms new home. Supt.

Kven though for lack of training' the resistance should urove of little value, they are said to he enrolling with enthusiasm in response to the call of the Bol-shevlki leaders.

Cut Down Frank Grade During his term of toff ice there has not been a great deal of new work undertaken on tho division, but what has been undertaken has always been rapidly pushed to completion which is what counts with the,-men higher up.

During | his stay here the LethbrMge-Weyburu line has been extended from Foremost to Manyberrles and placed under operation. In the way of maintenance a great deal has been done, however, and the Lethbridge division is considered to be in a hjgh state of efficiency. An Operating Record Tl is in the operating field, however, that Supt. Cotterell has had his greatest opportunity and It is here that he lvas riiore than "made good."
