ARBITRATION COURT AWARDS
In the Otiijo woollen mi'ls employees' dispute the Arbitration Court have filed their award. The award operates from the 14th of December, and remains in force until the Ist of Hay, 1917. In a memorandum to the award His Honor the Judge writes: "This award embodies, except as to the date from which the increase of wages is to take place, the recommendation of the Council of Conciliation which tho parties agreed to accept. 3lr M'Cullough desires to record his dissent from the decision of tho majority of the Court declining to yield to the contention of the workers' representative that the award as regards to wages operates retrospectively as from the Ist of August last. He think 3 that the result of the conference between the workers aud employers in July last imposed upon tho employers the clear moral obligation to pay tho increased wages as from the date named." In the Otago cycle workers and electroplaters' dispute the award operates from the 31st of October last, and continues in force until the 31st of December, 1915. The award embodies without alteration the recommendation of the Council of Conciliation, which the parties agreed to. At the hearing the Court was asked to make a special provision in regard to the hours of work for the Southland portion of the industrial district, and it was agreed that a provision similar to that contained in the Canterbury cycle workers' award should be inserted in this award. 11l the compensation case of Elizabeth O'Mahoney and others v. the Railway Department the Court declare Elizabeth O Mahoney to be the sole dependent, and judgment is given for her for £225, plus funeral expanses £l3 ss, costs £7 7s, witnesses' expenses, and disbursements; the amount to bo paid direct to Elizabeth O'Mahoney.
