ii-thout even consultation he said.

j- President's rer'arks were made as he
spoke at the opening ceremony of a Meet-
of the OECS Ear Ass,.ciati-n's Council
S which vere delegA:tes from St Vincent, St
Lucia, D(c'rnil!,, Antrijn. St
Ai.'-, Anruil.- the British Virgin Islands
i and the h,:,st country, Grenada.

'With reference to the much discuss-
ed question as to whether there
should be a final Westindian Court of
Appeal to replace the British Privy
Council, Mr Archibald said the
region has produced top-class jurists
(some of vhom have sat or are
-itting on the Privy Council) vho are
.capable of manning a Westindian
Court of Appeal-

Onr of the problenr: of WesmMJuin Courts,
: :, is that they are working viTh "vorn
ot tools".
Able To Speed Up
11 -.dges are still writing evidence in long-
hdtnd, he said, not having m.:,od'ernised
Ic.terns, they can,.mt have evidence t.aen
:dilvy nor are Ihey .able to speed up
!deiverv of their jiudgemenit-..

j he President said also that court
houses are inadequate, there are no
iax machines to enable Judges to con-
Sfer with others, no vord processors
so they can proceed vith their work
had no system that can quickly handle
evidence for appeals-

':.:.uig ihe ba'kgroiund to his organ-
Si.on. Mr Archibald J:.: t Gre.ia a
s ; is the eighth .:casionr on which the
: .ers' ofthA OECS have got t..elher.

_.- r'. er from eight countries (all
-::- represented at the Grenada :-e fing-,
.-:.:t the British Virgin I.1." :) had their
firstt orveehig on 21st June 1 .., te said,
vhen they got together to pr:.i:-st he terms

and conditions of the service of Judges of
the OECS Supreme Court.

That first meeting resolved itself int,: a
"Steering Committee': to foster establish-
ment of an OECS Bar Associationr and,
after a --erie- of meetings relative to pre-
paration of a Constitution and i naugural pro-
visirIS the o;r'-niaahon was laumci-d on
7th April 1990.
Expected To Be Completed
The vork of the Grenada meeting
e:-:pected to be completed on September 7th
and on the following day, there was to be a
,'ri,:kp5t match v.,hern the visiting lawyers
wuljd take -,n a team of Grenada lyers.

After the match there was to be a "goat and
rice" party at the home of former Chief
Justice_ of Grenada, Mr Carol Bristol.

When, two centuries ago, the ship "zsehy"
..rrrived at Grrn1d.a. from the West African
island of Boulam, she brought to the island
a di.s-eae which was to produce heated de-
bate in t e highest British and Amerric.-m

The Grenada "Chronicle & Gazette" of 19th
February 1793 reported that of 200 "advent-
urers" carried to Grenada by the ",ia ''"
.-d anriother ship, one third had died.
Succumbed To The Disease
C.Aiuse of Jeath was the de.adly "Boulam
Fe.-er" arnd, within weeks, more than 200
s-ai.:rs using the p,.rt of St Geo-rge had
succ.unbed to the disease.
..i, the fev.ei spread through the island,
and abrt'.-ad to other WestUirian islands and
to Philadelphia in North

Dr Colin Chisholm, who practised in Gre-
na.-- at .lat time, published a descripti,:,n of
the fever as an "original, foreign plague
utterly uniri.wn before". This incensed
m,.m mrr:edical people and, to his life's end,
Chri:' :lmrn as involved in passionate pro- dir-pi.ntes with critics who thought
that, before publication, he should have
consulted experts such as themselves.
