In the Supreme Court of the Windward
islands and Leeward Islands,


Suit No. 74 of 1954.

Between
LINCOLN RADIX

and

SUPERINTENDENT OF POLICE


Respoelaent.


R2esponldenzt.


Judgment.

THIS is an appeal from a conviction of the
S Magistrate of the Western and Northern
Districts whereby the Appellant was found guilty
in that he on Tuesday the 17th day of November,
1953, in the island of Carriacou, not being a
person registered under the provisions of. the
Medical and Dentists Registration Ordinance,
Cap. 137, did practise medicine, contrary to
Section 5 of the said Ordinance. The Appellant
was fined $24-00 and in default of payment
sentenced to 3 months\ imprisonment with hard
labour.
The only evidence in support of the charge was
that the Appellant, on the date charged, on one
occasion attended one Ena Sampson and prescribed
medicine.. There is no magic in the meaning of
the word "practise"; it relates to an habitual or
continuous course of conduct. In the words of
Hawkins, J. in the case of Apothecaries Co. v. Jones,
(1893), 1 Q.B.D. at p. 93, to Practise a calling
does not mean to exercise it upon an isolated
occasion but to exercise it frequently, customarily,
or habitually".
The Appeal must, therefore, be allowed and the
conviction and sentence set aside.

DONALD JACKSON,
Chief Justice.

Suit No. 132 of 1954.

Between
CHAMBERLAIN LAWRENCE


Appellant.


SUPERINTENDENT OF POLICE Respondent.

Judgment.
N this case the defendant was charged before the
Magistrate of the Eastern District in that he
on Tuesday the 6th day of July, 1954, at Paradise
in the parish of St. Andrew within the Eastern
Police District did unlawfully assault Gemma
Alexander of Paradise, contrary to Section 81 (1) of
the Criminal Code, Chapter 55.
Defendant was convicted and sentenced to six
months' imprisonment with hard labour. He
appealed.
All the evidence led in the case was more
consistent with innocence than with guilt. The
case for the prosecution at its highest was only
one of strong suspicion increased no doubt by the
fact that it was known that the defendant had
several previous convictions for similar offences.
Suspicion, however, is not proof.
The appeal is allowed, the conviction quashed
and the sentence set aside.

DONALD JACKSON,
Chief Justice.
