Crawford since his appointment, had spent most of his time in "The Jungle" wf St of tho town of Innlsfail. Tho member describing the rich daii-j' district of his riding as a jungle, caused some comment. Mr. Archer, however, admitted that 'Mr. Crawford is a bright young man and the mention of the word young, started the chief critic Robert K. Campbell, off on a flag waving splui'Ko. Mr. Campbell thouglil tills positlQU, and indeed all olhoi-a, should be given lo returned soldiers wlio hitvo lioon "fighting the battles of the ISmpire." T^lr. Hoadlcy on the other hand, thought Hint efficiency should bo the test and if a soldier were not efficient the province would save money by pensioning hini. Mr. Stewart explained the government policy to provide for returned soldiers wherever possible. Already (iuite a number have been provided for. in a year or so thousands would bo returning and the government couldn't provide for all of them. Whenever possible all conditions being favorable, soldiers would be given the preference. When the auditor's department salaries were under review tho opposition made another plea for an independent audit. Mr. Sifton, replying, sold that because a man was a chartered accountant it did not follow that he could audit government accounts. The syatom hero prevails In all other provinces and is also tho same as tho federal system. Ho had had conversations with the premiers of Ontario and Nova Scotia on the question of special audit and both stated thai it had been t^'ied in their provinces and was a useless expenditure. None of the recommendations made were practical. .Mr. Sifton said that tho work In the province is becoming too lieavy for one man and they wore on the lookout for a man of a typo similar to Mr. Burloy to assist him. The auditor is independent, being removable' only un n two;ithirds vote of the legislature. The pubic works list occupied the first part of the night session.
