NUTMEG ASSOCIATION, D ant.

(1955. No 19:3-Grenada)

Before Sir DONALD JACKSON. C..T.

May, 4, 10, 15, 16; July, 10.

J. H. V. REDHEAD, for Plaintif,

F. M. HENRY, for Defendant-Association.

JUDGMENT.
THE defendant in this action hereinafter referred to as the Association, is a body corporate created
by the Nutmeg Industry Ordinance, 1946, for the purpose of safeguarding and promoting the
interests of the nutmeg industry and in particular to market nutmegs and to regulate and control the
export thereof. The plaintiff is a member of the Association and a grower and producer of nutmegs;
he delivered a certain quantity of nutmegs during the nutmeg year ending 30th June, 1955, and he
claims from the Association in respect thereof the sum of $284.43 as the amount due to him as his
portion of the amount for surplus distribution.
Section 57 of the Ordinance provides :-
57 (1) All nutmegs delivered to the Association under the provisions of this Ordinance shall
be prepared for export and pooled by the Association and sold and the Association shall
keep an account of all such nutmegs.
(2) At the end of each nutmeg year all nutmegs remaining unsold shall be valued at the cost
thereof to the Association.
Provided that allowances shall be made at the end of each Nutmeg Year for any natmegs
that may be regarded as unsaleable or that may have depreciated to a value below that of the cost
to the Association; such allowance shall be at the sole discretion of the Board and to be a charge
against the revenues of the Association for the Nutmeg Year concerned".
(3) The Board shall ascertain the amount of the surplus or deficit on the transactions of the
Association in each nutmeg year, and in arriving at such surplus or deficit, the unsold nutmegs of each
previous nutmeg year shall be brought into account at the estimated value placed thereon at the end of
such year, and the total sums advanced for nutmegs and all other charges and expenses allowed and
certified by the auditors of the Association to be necessary for the proper conduct of the affairs of the
Asscoiation shall be set off against the sum represented by the revenue of the Association derived from
the sale of nutmegs and from any other source and the estimated value of unsold nutmegs.
(4) Any surplus or deficit in respect of any nutmeg year (ascertained in accordance with sub-
sections (2) and (3) of this section) shall be added to the total sums advanced by the Association to
members and other persons in respect of deliveries of nutmegs during such period and the total sum
.arrived at in the manner aforesaid shall be allocated to members and other persons who shall have
delivered nutmegs to the Association in accordance with the provisions of this Ordinance in proportion
to the quantities delivered by them respectively during such nutmeg year.
(5) From the amount allocated to the account of a member or other person in accordance with
subsection (4) of this section, there shall be deducted such sums as may be due by him to the Associa-
tion for advances made in accordance with the provisions of section 54 of this Ordinance, also for any
charge payable by him to the Association and the balance remaining to the credit of or owing by such
member or other person as the case may be shall be paid to or recovered from such member or other
person as shall then appear to the Board to be entitled thereto or liable therefore.
(6) In the case of a debt being due to the Association by such member or other person under the
provisions of subsection (5) of this section immediate payment of such debt may be demanded by the
Board or arrangements may be entered into for the payment thereof over such period as the 1oard may
determine with or without interest.
It is to the surplus" and to the balance remaining" to the credit of the plaintiff as provided for
by subsections 4 and 5 of section 57 of the Ordinance that the claim of $284.43 refers.
The Association admits delivery of the nutmegs, that the sum was due, but pleads payment to the
plaintiff by delivery of its cheque No. 6524 54 dated 4th October. 1955, on the presentation of the
plaintiff's identification card No. 9i661. The Association further pleads that the cheque indorsed with
the name of the plaintiff was indorsed by the plaintiff and cashed by him at Barclays Bank on 5th
October, 1!)95, on presentation to the bank of the said identification card.












GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, JULY 21, 1956.-(No. 43.) 275

The evidence discloses that the Association has between six and seven thousand producers. As
it is not practicable for its officers to recognize or know each producer personally, the Association gives
to each producer of nutmegs an identification card which is numbered; a different number
is given to the identification card of each person and no two persons have cards bearing the same
number. On the delivery of nutmegs to any of its receiving stations, the producer must tender
his identification card before his produce can be accepted; in addition he has a nutmeg
book in which the deliveries are recorded, but deliveries would not be recorded without the production
-of the identification card. Before a cheque is issued for the payment of any surplus distribution a
statement of account is made out bearing the identification number of the producer, but such statement
of account would not be delivered unless the identification card is tendered. The cheque shows several
items placed in paralled columns: in the first the date, second the identification number, third the
name of the person in whose tavour the cheque is made, fourth the amount in words and in the fifth
the amount in figures. On the face of the cheque the following words are printed, Identification card
must be produced on presentation of this cheque for payment". In addition, the bank has specific
instructions that no cheque should be paid except the identification card is produced and it agrees with
the number the cheque bears. It is common ground that the identification card is essential for the
conduct of business between the plaintiff and the Association and that it is the recognized and accepted
means of identifying each of the several producers who have such business dealings with the Association.
Indeed, plaintiff in his evidence said the identification card is necessary for obtaining my surplus
distribution. I could not get my money without presenting my identification card".
On 23rd November, 19)3, the plaintiff received an identification card numbered 9661, issued from.
the Hermitage Receiving Station, one of the Association's Collecting Centres. On that card plaintiff's
address is recorded as St. John, St. Andrew's; the acreage of nutmeg under cultivation is stated to
be one acre and the annual yield of green nutmegs estimated at 300 pounds. This information was sup-
plied by the plaintiff. On 6th July, 1955, the plaintiff reported to the Hermitage Receiving Station that
he had Inst his identification ca d ; lie applied for a duplicate card which was issued to him a few days
later. He testified that lie had only lost one of them for two days in July until" he got the second
one, no one had access to those cards at all", that he kept both the original and the duplicate
identification cards probably using each ,t different times subsequently when handing in produce to the
-station but not both at the same time. It is a curious fact that both the original and the duplicate
identification c rds had the approximate an ual yield as only 300 pounds, and the acreage under
cultivation as one acre, whereas at the trial of the action, when the original identification card was
produced it had 3,000 pounds as the estimated yield where originally it had 300 pounds; plaintiff has been
unable to account for the alLeration, the additionn of the extra nought. Plaintiff stated that he had
mentioned, when applying for the duplicate, that his acreage un]er cultivation had increased $ a look
at the nutmeg hiok of the plaintiff shows the acreage stated under cultivation to he 1- acres and
the estimated annual yield of nutimegs 1.800 pounds. It may be said here that the amount of nutmegs
delivered to the Associatio- during the ear ending 30thi June was 2,9)921 pounds ; it is significant,
therefore, that the plaintiff never gIve up the duplicate card after he had found the original. There
was nothing to prevent him and another using the two cards, one each during the same nutmeg year.
On 15th September, 1955, the following letter was received by the Association's office.

Snell Hall,
St. Patrick's,
Sept. 15th, 1955.
The Secretary,
G.N.C.A.,
St. George's.
Dear Sir,
May you be good enough to instruct your Chief Accountant to have my address changed cn
your book permanently from Hermitage P. O., St. Patrick's, to Sauteurs, P. 0.
And may you forward all future correspondence, including my cheque with my bonus, to my new
address.
Thanking you in advance.
Yours respectfully,
CECILI STEPHEN,
Card No. 9661."
Hermitage Post Office is nearest to plaintiff's address, St. John, St. Andrew's.
Mr. Owen Donald Douglas, an Accountant employed by the Association said le received
that letter on the 15th September and placed his initials on it after the change of address
Jiad been noted in the statement book. The change of address was effected under his
supervision. In the course of his evidence, lie stated "the system is for the producer to produce his
identification card before a statement is delivered to him ; the statement would not be delivered without
the production of the identification card inasmuch as we cannot and do not know all the producers;
there are mere than six thcus:nd producers and we would not know each one individually...............
The identification card plays i very important part. There are persons who bear the same name and
unless we insist cn the identification c id being presented, accounts would be liable to be confused".













276 GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, JULY 21, 1956.-(No. 43).

On the 22nd September, 1955, a hurricane swept the island of Grenada, did great damage to the
crops and property, and dislocated road transport and other means of communication around the
island. In order to assist producers who were most urgently in neel of their surplus distribution, the
Association decided to pay the surplus distribution to those who applied at the head office rather than
transmit the cheque by post as customary to the various Post Offices in the island, for the latter
method would have entailed great delay. On the 4th October, 1955, a person answering the name of
plaintiff presented plaintiff's identification card which corresponded in all respects with particulars
in the office; the account was then made out, checked and counter-checked and presented to him on
the presentation of the identification card. The account showed that the sum of $284.43 was due
to Cecil Stephen, the plaintiff. The person signed the statement, Cecil Stephen. A cheque was
made out in the name of Cecil Stephen with all particulars as already stated and handed to the
person on the presentation of the identification card. On the 5tb October, ]955, the cheque issued
on the 4th October, was presented at Barclays Bank for ctsh. Miss Pamela Evadney Hughes,
a cashier at the Bank, said she dealt with that particular cheque among others on
the 5th October, 1955; that before cashing it, she called for the identification card which
was presented ; she continued, "the payee on that cheque is Cecil Stephen ; the identification
number on that cheque is 9661. I cashed that cheque; it was endorsed Cecil Stephen. At the back
of the cheque the name Cecil Stephen is signed twice ; the first time (which is the signature below)
he signed it incorrectly, that is the person presenting it. I caused him to endorse it a second time.
The identification card was presented. I agreed the identification number, the name of the person
with that of the cheque. I then saw that the endorsement of the cheque agreed with the name on
the cheque, then I paid cash. I ticked off the name and the identification number, I cancelled the
cheque and paid the cash; the ticks are shown on the cheque ; I ticked in red". The signature
on the letter notifying the change of address, that on the statement of account and that at the back
of the cheque dated 4th October, 1955, have: in my view, all been written by one and the same
person.
About the 13th or 14th November, 1955, plaintiff called at the office of the Association and asked
for payment of his proportion of the surplus distribution. He was told by the secretary, Mr. Curtis
Hughes, that he had already been paid. Plaintiff was shown the duplicate copy of the statement
signed Cecil Stephen', and the corresponding cheque which was returned from the Bank as having
been cashed; plaintiff insisted that he did not draw the money but that he suspected who has drawn
it. The secretary then informed him that if his statement was correct, he the secretary could help
him by putting the matter in the hands of the Police. In plaintiff's presence the secretary got in
touch by telephone with Sergeant Quarless who as a result called at the office of the Asscciation.
The Plaintiff was then still in possession of both the original and the duplicate identification cards;
he handed them to the secretary who in the presence of the plaintiff handed them along with the
cheque to Sergeant Quarless ; plaintiff and Sergeant Quarless thereafter left for the police station.
Plaintiff did not return to the Secretary but promptly consulted a solicitor, Mr. Redhead, who a few
days later, issued the writ of summons in this case.
Plaintiff was emphatic that except for the two or three days ih July when he had mislaid the-
identification card, both the identification card and the duplicate one which had been issued to him
had never left his possession on a single occasion until he took them to the Association's office in
November, 1955. It is clear, therefore, that if his statement is correct the identification card could
not have been presented either at the office on 4th October, or at the bank on 5th October. I find as
a fact the identification card was presented on these respective dates at the office and at the bank.
The plaintiff has sought to prove that it was physically impossible for him to be at the Association's,
office or at the bank on either 4th or 5th October, and adduced evidence to the effect that he was at
work on those dates. Even if it be so, it still remains unexplained how the identification card
reached the office and the bank if the plaintiff did not part with the possession of the card, for he
insisted that both the original and the duplicate were securely in his care at the material dates. He
also denied that he wrote or authorised the letter of the 15th September. I am not impressed that
the plaintiff is a witness of truth. Whenever he was asked a question in cross-examination on vital
points he either hesitated unduly or exhibited pretence at not understanding a simple question. He
was very shifty.
At the close of the case for the defence plaintiff was recalled at the instance of his counsel and
referred to a cheque issued to plaintiff by the Association on 10th December, 1955, which plaintiff had
indorsed. Plaintiff deposed that the handwriting of the endorsement on this cheque was his and
that it was different from that of the endorsement of the cheque of the 4th October, 1955. The
handwriting is indeed different but this cheque of the 10th December was issued and indorsed
long after the previous one and at a time when it had already been known that the Association had
claimed that the amount was paid and 'after the plaintiff had filed his writ.
There is no written contract between the plaintiff and the Association but an examination of the-
evidence reveals the basis on which the agreement to supply produce on the one hand and to pay
surplus distribution on the other, rested. Both parties recognized the impracticability of each of the
six er seven thousand producers being personally recognized by the several officers of the Association
or on every producer being vouched for at each stage where identification would be required. The
nature of the transaction, the practice or business method of the Association, plaintiff's knowledge
and understanding of that practice at least since 1953 coupled with his acquiescence support the
view that the parties entered into and concluded their negotiations on the footing that the obligation
of the Association would be discharged if payment is made on the presentation of the identification
card. Had it been otherwise business between the Association and the producers would have been

well nigh impossible for indeed the transactions would have been shorn of that business efficacy
essential to the performance of the contract. It seems clear from the nature of the transaction that
the contracting parties must have intended such a term to be a ];art of the agreement in order to
enable the agreement to be operative. I understand the rule in this class of case to be that the
court ought not to imply a term in a contract unless there arises from the language of the contract
itself and the hircumnstanees under which it is entered into, such an inference that the parties must
have intehndiei t, stipulation in question that the Court is necessarily driven to the conclusion that
it must ie implied.". (Kiay L.J. in Hain.ly d: Co. cs. Wood &: Co. 1891 ) Q. .B. at pxje 491). Each
case must, h,,weveir, for the application of the rule depend on its own facts as no one case should be
taken as a gnide Ior another. The implication will here be made because the Court is driven of
necessity on considering as far as can be ascertained the terms of the agreement in a reasonable and
business inner to imply a term in order to carry out what was undoubtedly tle intention of both
parties, that is, the performance of the Association's part of the contract would be complete when it
paid 1y : valid cheque the amount due to the plaintiff on the presentation of plaintiff s identification
card.
The Association has taken all the care it could reasonably have exercised in connexion with the
transaction mnder review and there was nothing to excite the suspicion of its ollicers that the person
who presented the card was any other, if indeed he was not, than the plaintiff. There was no
negligence on the Association's part nor was there any on tl'c part of the bank clerk. Plaintiff's
counsel forcefully and seriously contended that the Association's duty remained unfulfilled in so far
as it did not prove that the cheque was handed to the plaintiff personally or that he was personally
identified at the bank other than by the card : that, counsel submitted, needed positive proof and
nothing short of personal identification by one of its officers could relieve the Association of that
onus, I am of opinion counsel has misconceived the position in the circumstances of this case and
l am unable ti uphold his submission for the reasons already stated.
The plaintiff's claim is dismissed and judgment shall be entered for the defendant with costs.
