In the Court of Summary Jurisdiction of the Leeward
Islands.
(COURT OF APPEAL)
JAMES TYRELL Appellant.
V.
THE SUPERINTENDENT OF POLICE Respondent.
(1950, No. 14-St. Christopher)
Before: JACKSON C.J.
1950-June 6, August 2.
M. H. DAVIS for the Appellant
C. F. HENVILLE for Respondent.
JACKSON Acting C.J.
This is an appeal from the conviction and sentence of the Additional Magistrate of
District C for an alleged contravention of section 20 (b) of the Liquor Licensing Ordinance
1906 as amended by the Liquor Licence (Amenidmient) Ordinance 1948.
The section reads:-
20. All premises with respect to which a licence is issued under and by virtue
of the provisions of this Ordinance for the sale of liquor by retail shall be closed as
follows:
(b) On every public holiday from 9 a.m. until 7 a.m. on the following
morning.
The evidence establishes that on the 26th December, 1949 a Bank Holiday, a member of
the Police Force went to the appellant's shop at George Street, New Town and found him selling
rum to one Thomas. The principal ground of appeal is that the conviction is contrary to Law
inasmuch as in the appellant's view selling liquor on a Bank Holiday was not an offence within the
statute.
There is no Public Holidays Act or Ordinance; the only reference to Public Iolidays
apart from the statute under review is in a Leeward Islands Act, Chapter 114 entitled the
"Bank Holidays Act"; the relevant section 8 is as follows:
8. Bank holidays shall be kept as public holidays at the several public offices.
It was submitted for the respondent that a Bank Holiday is a Public Holiday inasmuch as it
is a holiday enjoyed by the public and that from time immemorial it was so regarded. On
behalf of the appellant it was urged that the appellant was charged under a section of the Liquor
License Ordinance which spoke of Public Holidays and it would have been easy for the legislature
to say "Bank Holidays" if it meant it to he so understood; further that violation of the section is
highly penal carrying with it forfeiture of the licence, and it should be strictly construed.
I find favour with the appellant's view and can find nothing in the Laws of St. Christopher
or the Federal Laws of the Leeward Islands to indicate what are public holidays for the purposes of the
Liquor Licensing Ordinance. In the English Shops Act 1912 (2 Geo. 5, C. 3), S. 19 (1) it was found
necessary to define Bank Holiday as including "any public holiday or day of public rejoicing or
mourning". In the absence of any definition of a public holiday in the local statutes or of any
evidence establishing custom, I am unable to conclude that an offence has been proved or committed.
I therefore find for the appellant. The appeal is allowed with costs fixed at 3. 13s. and the convic-
tion and the st.ntence are set aside.

Acting Chief Justice.

Notice.


HURRICANE WARNINGS.

1. At the beginning of the Hurricane Season the public are advised to take precautionary
measures to ensure that all doors, windows, and shutters of their houses, offices, etc., can be securely
fastened. The same applies to buildings used as shelters for stock.
An adequate supply of hurricane lanterns, candles or electric torches is recommended, in the
event of the failure of electric lighting system during the storm.
2. Householders possessing a barometer should watch their instrument carefully and observe
readings at 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. and at night time previous to retiring to bed. Any change lower than
the usual diurnal one of 0.1 inch should be regarded with some suspicion and more frequent
observations made.
3. All Agents of steamers and of sailing vessels which are approaching or leaving Antigua in
doubtful weather, are asked to communicate direct with the Harbour Master. This is especially essential
with regard to small sailing boats engaged in inter-island trade.
4. When barring up a house, on indications of bad weather or the approach of a hurricane, begin
with the side facing the direction of the prevailing wind, which varies as a rule from North West to
North East. Should the centre happen to pass over the island there will be a short period of calm
during which the northern side of the building should be opened up and the southern or westerly sides
closed. Very often, however, the hurricane shifts directly from North East to South East with little or
no interval of relative calm, and under such circumstances it is wise to have every window and door
securely fastened.
