THURSDAY, 4TH FEBUARY, 1954.


Notices.

International Regulations for
(Preventing Collisions at Sea.
The Collision Regulations (Ships
and Seaplanes on the water) and
Signals of Distress (Ships) Order,
1953. S. I. 1953 No. 1557 made under
Section 418 of the Merchant Ship-
ping Act, i894 (t) came into opera-
tion on the 1st January, 1954.

2. The British Ships to which,
wherever they may be, the Collision
Regulations apply include, among
others:-

(a) Ships registered in the Colo-
nies under the Merchant Shipping
Act 1891.
(b) Ships registered under sec-
tion 88 of the Merchant Shipping
Act 1894.
(c) Ships registered in Colonies
etc., which have their own Mer-
chant Shipping Legislation and
have repealed section 418 (1) of
'the Merchant Shipping Act 1894,
in its application to such ships. in
exercise of the powers conterrel
by section 735 (1) of the Merchant
Shipping Act 189.

3. Paragraph 3 of Article 1 of
the new Order revokes certain pro-
visions relating to aircraft on the
surface of the water which are con-
tained in the Air NAvigation Order,
1949, and the Colonial Air Naviga-
tion Order. 1949, as subsequently
amended. The revoked provisions
are indicated in Part II of the Third
Schedule to the Order. When the
Order comes into operation on the
1st January, 1954 these provisions
will no longer he needed as seaplanes
on the surface of the water (except so
far as distress signals are concerned)
will thereafter be dealt with in the
Collision Regulations set out in the
First Schedule to the Order. Signals
of distress for aircraft are at present
dealt with in Schedule II of the Air
Navigation Order, 1949 and Sched-
ule II of the Colonial Air Navigation
Order, 1949 and these provisions will
be re-enacted in the new Air Naviga-
tion Order which is at present in
preparation and in the corresponding
Colonial Air Navigation Order."

4. The following are some of the
more important changes:-
(i) They apply to seaplanes on the
watpr as well as to ships.


(ii) Under the existing Regulations
a second white masthead light is
optional. Under the new Regu-
lations the second light becomes
compulsory for power-driven
vessels under way except for
vessels less than 150 feet in
length and for vessels engaged
in towing.
(iii) The lights shown by fishing
vessels when fishing must be
visible at a distance of at least
two miles.
(iv) The stern light which under
the existing g Regulations is
optional becomes com ulsory,
and its range of visibility is in-
creased from one to two miles.
(v) The range of visibility of
anchor lights is increased for all
vessels under 150 feet in length
from one to two miles and for
vessels of 150 feet in length and
over from one to three miles.
In day time vessels at anchor
must carry a black ball not less
than two feet in diameter in the
fore part of the vessel. Vessels
aground must carry in daytime
three black balls, placed in a
vertical line one over the other
and not less than six feet apart.
(vi) Vessels of more than 350 feet
in length when at anchor in fog,
mist, falling snow, heavy rain-
storms or any other condition
similarly restricting visibility
must, in addition to ringing a
bell in th- forepart of the vessel,
sound in tlhe after part a gong or
or other instrument, the tone and
sounding of which cannot be
confused with that of the bell.
(vii) A new sound signal (one pro-
longed blast of the whistle) is
prescribed for a power-driven
vessel nearing a bend in a chan-
nel where another power-driven
vessel might be approaching
from the other direction but
cannot be seen.

(viii) When a power-driven vessel
which, under the Regulations,
has to keep course and speed is
in sight of another vessel and is
in doubt whether the other vessel
is taking sufficient action to avert
collision, she may indicate her
doubt by giving at least five
short and rapid blasts on the
whistle.
5. The International Conference
on the Safety of Life At Sea, 1948
which approved the Regulations also


adopted the following recommenda-
tions:-
The Conference, while recognizing
that the recent advances in radar
and electronic navigational aids
are of great service to shipping,
is of the opinion that the posses-
sion of any such device in no
way relieves the Master of a ship
from his obligations strictly to
observe the requirements laid
down in the International Regu-
lations for Preventing Collisions
at Sea, and in particular the
obligations contained in Rules
15 and 16 of those Regulations.

IN THE SUPREME COURT OF THE WINDWARD ISLANDS AND LEEWARD
ISLANDS.
ANTIGUA CIRCUIT
(APPELLATE JURISDICTION)
Appeal No. 7 of 1953.
Between:-
IVAN EDWARDS Appellant (Defendant)
and
JOSEPH E. BYRON Respondent (Complainant)
(Inspector of Police)
Before:- DATE, J.
S. T. CHRISTIAN for Appellant.
A. F. LoCIsY (Acting Crown Attorney) for !espondent.
JUDGMENT.
The appellant was convicted by the Acting Magistrate, District A ", for failing to com-
ply with regulation 19 (11) of the Vehicles and Road Traffic Regulations, 1!946. That regulation
provides that every driver of a motor vehicle shall, when about to stop the vehicle on any road,
draw up as close as possible to the side of the road so as to allow a clear roadway for passing traffic.
The facts found by the learned Magistrate are stated in his Reasons for Decision which,
for convenience, are set out in extenso:
The charge against the appellant arose out of a collision on 18th May 1953 betweenn
A.G. 8J)8 driven by the appellant and A.G. 159 driven hb Ernest .Joseph, who was
charged with driving without due care and attention contrary to Section 53 of the Motor
Vehicles and Road Traffic Ordinance 1916 (No. 5/1946). The evidence for the prosecu-
tion being the same for both charges, and the appellant consenting, they were both heard
together.
At the close of the case for the prosecution the evidence presented to the court may
be summarised as follows:-
A.G. 808 driven by the appellant was proceeding south along Market Street. Some-
where along that section of Market Street between Tanner Street and South Street A.G.
808 stopped. In theposition where it stopped there was a space of 7 ft. between the left
front wheel and the east kerb of Market Street, and a space of 7 ft. 10 between the left
rear wheel and the East Kerb, this kerb being, vis vis A.G. 808, the left hand kerb.
There was no evidence that at the time of stopping there was any reason why A.G. 808
could not have pulled up next to its left hand (i.e. eastern) kerb instead of 7 ft. away
from it. Sergeant Roberts gave evidence that he visited the scene and that an eye-wit-
ness-one James Dor-told him in the appellant's preTsence that when the latter stopped he
was speaking to someone in a shop on the east side of the street. He further gave evi-
dence that Dor refused to give a statement to the Police. Dor was summoned as a wit-
ness and gave evidence that when the appellant stopped he was looking in the shop on
the side of the Street.
Vehicle A.G. 159 was proceeding north along Market Street. According to Dor's
evidence, as A.G. SOS and A.G. 159 came together ", A.G. 808 stopped, while A.G. 159
went on and the right sides of the vehicles scraped each other. According to the evidence
of Harry Goodwin A.G. 808 came to a stop when A.G. 159 was about 30 ft. away. The
court came to a conclusion that A.G. 808 came to a halt just before the collision, i.e. that
when the front of A.G. 159 passed the front of A.G. 808 the latter was at a standstill.
At the close of the prosecution's case Mr. Christian submitted that (i) the Regulation
under which the appellant was charged did not apply to cases where a vehicle was
forced to stop by reason of the nature of the traffic, e.g. in order to avoid an accident, and
(ii) that there was no evidence before the court that the appellant had stopped for any
reason other than the circumstances of the traffic.
In view of the evidence of Sgt. Roberts and James Dor, and the fact that at the time
of stopping the appellant was (accepting the least incriminating version) looking into the
shop on the east side i.e. away from the approaching vehicle A.G. 159, and bearing in
mind that the reason for stopping was a 'act peculiarly within the knowledge of the
appellant, the court was of the opinion that a prima facie case had been established, and
called upon the appellant to make hi defence. The appellant gave no evidence nor
made any statement and was therefore convicted."


[4 Februonry, 19-54.

THE LEEWARD ISLANDS GAZETTE.


In this Court Mr. Christian, for the appellant, repeated the arguments advanced by him
in the Magistrate's Court and submitted that what James D)or told Sergeant Rolerts after the
accident was not evidence; that Dor gave evidence in Court and said nothing about the appellant
speaking to anyone in a shop on the eastern side of the street. It is observed, however, that
though the learned Magistrate in his Reasons for Decision adverts to the evidence given by
Sergeant Roberts as to what was said in the presence of the appellant after the accident, he does
not base his decision iiuon the statement alleged to have been made to Sergeant Roberts by Dor.
The learned Magistrate clearly indicates that he accepted the least incriminating version "-that
the appellant was merely looking into the shop on the eastern side i.e. away from the approach-
ing vehicle A.G. 159 ". Or that uncontradicted testimony the Magistrate drew the inference, as
he was entitled to do, that the approach of A.G. 159 was not the reason for the stopping of the
appellant's car.

Mr. Christian also submitted that the learned Magistrate's conclusion that A.G. SOS could
and should have been pulled up closer to the eastern side of the street is against the weight of
evidence and wrong in iw. As to the law, he urged that so long as the appellant's car was stopped
sufficiently close to the left side of the street to permit of the passage of traffic then on the street
no offence was committed. The regulation, be it noted, requires every driver to "draw up as close
as possible to the side of tIe road so as to allow a clear roadway for passing traffic." The leaving of
a clear roadway for passing traffic is undoubtedly the object which the Governor in Council had
in mind in making the regulation, but the Governor in Council went further and stated how
that object was to be achieved. It is not open to a driver to say that though he stopped his car
in the middle of the road he has complied with the regulation because other persons then using the
road had sufficient room to pass.

On the question of fact, whether A.G. 808 could have been pulled up closer to the eastern side
of the street,.Mr Christian referred to the evidence of Harry Goodwin, a witness for the prosecu-
tion, who said: I do not know why the car stopped. There were people on the side of the road-
between sidewalk and the car ". James Dor on the other hand is recorded as having stated: I did
not see anything to prevent car stopping right at side of road. He (the driver) said the garbage
pan prevented him, but the pan was right next to the telephone post and did not prevent him from
stopping right next to side of road." Dor's evidence generally was accepted by the Magistrate, and it
-seems clear that his evidence on this particular point was also accepted. Nevertheless, all that the
Magistrate says in this connection is: "There was no evidence that at the time of stopping there
was any reason why A.G. 808 could not have pulled up next to its left hand (i.e. eastern) kerb
instead of 7 ft. away from it." Mr. Louisy, for the respondent, pointed out that Goodwin's evi-
dence is silent as to the precise stage at which there were people between the sidewalk and the car
and contended that looking at the case as a whole it was not reasonable to suppose that the learned
Magistrate had overlooked Goodwin's evidence. The view I take of the matter is that even if
there were people on the left side of the road when the appellant was about to stop his car, it was
his duty to sound his horn and get them to move so as to enable him to pull up reasonably close to
the sidewalk. There is no evidence of any such effort having been made.

The appeal is dismissed with costs 3 3. 0.

IN THE COURT OF SUMMARY JURISDICTION OF THE LEEWARD ISLANDS.
(ANTIGUA CIRCUIT)
(APPELLATE JURISDICTION)
Appeal No. 14 of 1953.
Between:-
EARL JOSEPH Appellant (Defendant)
and
JOSEPH E. BYRON Respondent (Complainant)
(Inspwcor of Police)
Before:- DATE, J.
E. E. HARNEY for Appellant
D. A. DE FREITAS (Acting Crown Attorney) for Respondent..
JUDGMENT.
On 29th September, 1953, the appellant was convicted by the Acting Magistrate of District
" A for stealing predial produce to the value of $2.90 and was sentenced to three months imprisonment
with hard labour. Against that conviction and, sentence he has appealed, the grounds of appeal being-
(1) that there was no evidence to show that the place where the offence is alleged to have
been committed-i.e. Greencastle Station-is in the Magisterial District "A "; and
(2) that the sentence imposed is excessive.
As regards his first ground of appeal, it is not contended that Greencastle is not within District
" A ", but that there was no proof of it. A similar question was raised in 1951 in Thihou ,r Bowery in
the Court of Appeal for the Windward Islands and Leeward Islands. The Court was not called upon to
ive a concluded opinion on the point, but it nevertheless referred to the old case of R. v. Whittles,.
(1849) 13 Q.B. 248, and expressed the view that a magistrate can properly take judicial notice of the
magisterial divisions of a Presidency. In any case, the submission made on behalf of the appellant is one
which goes to the jurisdiction of the court of first instance. The objection was not taken on the hearing
of the complaint in that court, and it is not competent for the appellant to raise it now.
On the question of sentence, it was urged on behalf of the appellant that he is only twenty-two
years old and has no previous convictions. These are matters which should be taken into account in
considering sentence; but there are other factors which also have to be taken into consideration. It is,
for instance, observed that as recently as 1949 the Legislature of this Colony deemed it necessary to pass
a special Act for the protection of the producers of predial produce. The maximum punishment
prescribed for a first offence under that Act is twelve months imprisonment with hard labour, plus a fine
of $240.00, plus compensation. And the circumstances surrounding the commission of this particular
offence are not favourable. The evidence shows that for some time produce had been missing from
Greencastle Station, to such an extent, indeed, that two night-watchmen had to he engaged. Then one
night, around midnight, just as the moon had gone down, the appellant, who lives nearby, was.
discovered in the garden. In these circumstances I see no reason for interfering with the punishment
awarded by the learned trial Magistrate.
The appeal is therefore dismissed, with costs 3. 0.
