Compensation and Arbitration.

14/ 78.Claims for compensation against the Public Trustee in respect of any matters arising under this Act, or for value of improvements or other matters, shall, unless otherwise specially provided, be settled in the manner provided in Part III. of "The Public Works Act, 1882," for which purpose the said Part III., and all other the provisions of that Act which are applicable thereto, shall be deemed to be incorporated with this Act.

In such claims the Public Trustee shall be the respondent.

15/ 79.Where it is provided that any matter arising under this Act shall be referred to arbitration, then such reference, unless herein otherwise provided, shall be to one or more arbitrators appointed by the parties on each side respectively, and an umpire to be appointed by such arbitrators.
(1.)If either party shall fail to appoint an arbitrator within twenty-one days after being requested in writing to do so by the other party, then the arbitrator appointed by the other party shall alone conduct the arbitration, and his decision shall be final and binding on both parties.
(2.)If the said arbitrators shall fail to agree upon the matter referred to them within twenty-eight days of the same having been so referred, then the matter so referred shall be decided by an umpire to be appointed by the said arbitrators, whose decision shall be final and binding on both parties.
(3.)Every such arbitration shall be carried on in the manner prescribed by "The Arbitration Act, 1890," and be subject to such last-mentioned Act in the some manner as if the reference to such arbitration had been made by consent of parties under a written agreement.
(4.)Each party shall pay his or its costs of such reference, and any costs incidental to the appointment of an umpire shall be paid equally by the parties to the arbitration.
16/ 80.Before any appraiser, arbitrator, or umpire enters into the consideration of any matters referred to him under this Act he shall make the following declaration:—

I, A. B., do declare that I have no interest, either directly or indirectly, in the matter of [Here state], and that I will faithfully and honestly, and to the best of my skill and ability, make the appraisement and valuation required under the provisions of "The Native Reserves Administration Act, 1893."

And I make this declaration conscientiously believing the same to be true, and by virtue of an Act of the General Assembly of New Zealand intituled "The Justices of the Peace Act, 1882."
