68. When, by reason of changes made in the boundaries of counties, an agricultural society organized under this act, becomes possessed of any moveable or immoveable property, belonging, either wholly or in part, to any society previously organized in the same territory, or in any part thereof, the said property may be valued by arbitrators, upon whom the parties shall agree, and be divided between them equitably and in accordance with their rights.
If the society so holding such property refuse or neglect to arbitrate or to divide the same, or the value thereof, or to comply with any award made upon any such arbitration, the society aggrieved may sue for and recover its proportion of the same, or the amount to which it is entitled by any such award, in any civil court.
The Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food may order the grant of public money payable to such defaulting society to be withheld while such default continues.
