! TIIK I'IfRISTCHURCH AWARD. [Pee United Pp.k.ss Association.] CHIUSTCT-IURCH. December 17. At tho Arbitration Court today, when • an application was made to add the Canterbury ' Publishing Company (tho proprietors of the ' Sun") to the Christchuroh newspaper reporters and proof readers' award, Mr E. C. Huie, on behalf of tho company, opposed the application. When ! the disputo had originally come before the ; Court, bo said, bo "had opposed his company being joined on the ground that totally different conditions prevailed with regard to it, This application, ho submitted, practically amounted to one for a new award. Mr D. G. Sullivan, the union's representative, stated that when the Court was dealing with tho matter Mr Huie, at the dn.ie of ;> long day, desired to address the Court. The Court was not disposed t:i hi'.-ir Mr Huie at that time, and it simply postponed hearing him till his paper comm.-'iioed publication. The award was made in June. 1913, whereas Mr Huip's.paper was not published till February following. Mr Time's paper was iu I'omnctition with tho other papers. which were bound by the award. It was rjuite. unthnught of that the Canterbury Publishing Company bsould be exempted from the operation of this award any more than thnt parties in the line of "business covered by other awards should be exempted from those awards. * Mr Ifui» stated that his company published just rmo pap?r. whereas the" other companies published three each. He submitted that the present application was for a new award. His objections to the making of such wero that—firstly, the conditions with regard to his paper were different from those in connection with the others: and, secondly, that since the award was untdc war had broken out, which had brought about completely different circumstances. The other papers here were old-established concerns, and most people knew that new concerns must feel the pinch more. Mr Sullivan said that it had never been the custom of the Court in his experience for the financial position of new parties to cause ths Court to grant exemption. His Honor said the best plan would he for Mr Huie to submit to tb" Court ids grounds for opposing the adding of his ' comp'airY to tiie award, and thp Court would then hear evidence on such. He said that ho had not seen the award before, and he would read it in conjunction with Mr Huio's objections, and he would then tell tho parties what course to adopt.
