Appeal No. 5.
GRAFTON DALZINE Appellant
vs.
THEOPHILUS WILLIAMS Respondent.

JUDGMENT.
On the 12th February, 1954. the Ma-
gistrate of District 1 entered judgment
for the Respondent in an action for
slander brought by the Appellant.
The Appellant has appealed against
this decision on the ground that a legal
submission made at the close of the
Appellant's case, and which was accept-
ed by the Court was wrong in law.
The argument of Counsel for the
Appellant that as a member of a deter-
minate class the Appellant was entitled
to bring this action, was defeated by the
facts that :-
(a) only one person of the so called
class was slandered, and
(b) the identity of the person slan-
dered was unknown to any of the
witnesses who gave evidence be-
fore the Magistrate.
The Appeal must therefore be dis-
missed with 2. 2. 0. Costs.

JUDGMENT.
This is an appeal by the Appellants
against their conviction and their res-
pective sentences of 3 months H.L. !'or
larceny of fowls.
The evidence clearly indicated recent
possession by the Appellants of two
fowls which had been lost an hour be-
fore.
The Magistrate who had the oppor-
tunity of seeing and observing the
demeanour of the Defendants in the
witness box-, and of assessing their evi-
dence rejected their explanation as to
how they came by the birds.
This Court is in entire agreement
with the findings of the learned Magis-
trate and dismisses the Appeal. The
sentences of the Court are accordingly
confirmed.

This is an Appeal by the Appellalit

to Sec. 30 Cap. 31 of the Laws of the
Colony.
On reviewing the evidence it is clear

Respondent failed to discharge the onus

fore to make out a prima facie case
against the Appellant. In the circum-
stances the learned Magistrate should
not have called on the Appellant to
answer but should have dismissed him

For this reason the Appeal is allowed

COTTON CROP 1953-1954.

All growers are hereby notified that
the whole of the St. Vincent Superfine
Sea Island Cotton Crop 1953-54 has
been sold on the basis of 1st White lint
at 62 pence per lb. This is a consider-
able advance on the previous year's
price of 54 pence per lb.
The 1953-54 crop only totalled 376
bales 1st White as against the 1952-53
crop of 808 bales 1st White.
It is hoped that the early sale of cot-
ton together with a good advance in
price will stimulate greater production
of this valuable crop in 1954-55.
A good and thorough clean up in this
close season, good and early preparation
-of land, early planting, the increased
use of fertilisers and careful attention
should bring higher returns per acre
and make cotton a worthwhile crop.
