p.2 County Court and Quarter Sessions - Whelan vs Genge - This was an action of trover to recover damages for injury sustained to certain pieces of timber forming the "ways" on which Whelan built his scows. These "ways" were borrowed from Whelan by Genge, who was about to build a scow, but witness proved that they were his (witnesses) property, and not owned by Whelan, from whom they were borrowed, and who brings the present action. Genge had cut one of the sticks forming the "ways," and converted it to his own use, which Mr. O'Reilly contended was a "conversion" of the whole. Sir Henry Smith moved for a non-suit, on the ground that the "ways" had been borrowed from the Plaintiff, that the Defendant had never asked them to be returned, and that he had no right to bring this action until the "ways" had been demanded back. The Judge ruled that the Plaintiff could recover for only one stick of timber, and finally non-suited the Plaintiff. Mr. O'Reilly moved for a new trial. James O'Reilly for the Plaintiff; Sir Henry Smith, Q.C. for the Defendant.
