W. A. Virgo.
    Mr. W. I. Garde appeared for the plaintiff, and Mr. M. J. O'sullivan for the defendant company.
    Mr. Garde said that the plaintiff was a farm hand, and lived with his father at Goombungee. In February E W. A. Virgo, district superintendent for the Queensland Probate Insurance Company, went to the plaintiff's father's house and inquired if he had a probate insurance policy on his life. On being told that he had, Mr. Virgo asked for the policy to be produced. Mr. Virgo examined the policy, which had been taken out with the Equitable Life Assurance Company. The evidence would show that Mr. Virgo told the plaintiff's father that the policy was of no value, as the amount would not be paid by the company for some time after the death of the insured. On the representations made by Mr. Virgo the plaintiff was induced to take put a policy with the Queensland Probate Insurance Company, on which he paid a premium of £12/4/8. Subsequently the plaintiff found that the statements made by Mr. Virgo were untrue, and made a claim against the company for a refund of the premium.
    Evidence in support of the claim was given, after which Mr.-O'sullivan asked for a nonsuit on the grounds that there was no evidence of misrepresentation, or that there was any evidence to show that any statement made by Mr. Virgo was untrue.
