Decision: Application by the City of Victoria for an order awarding costs incurred in an arbitration proceeding arising from land expropriated by the Applicant for water works purposes. The arbitrators had awarded $500 in compensation which was equal to the City's offer. It was held that the court had no discretion in these circumstances and the owner was liable for costs. The application was granted. The Applicant sought a further order authorizing it to deduct the award of costs from the compensation otherwise payable. The court held that it had no jurisdiction to make this order and this part of the application was dismissed.
