Science 9 difficulties - Daltons atomic theory

Okay, so this is grade 9 science and it isn't insanely hard, but I'm doing some research for a project in which I have to explain the history of the atomic theory. Besides the five main points, theres one extra point that just doesn't make sense. Here is what it says:

When atoms combine in only one ratio, "..it must be presumed to be a binary one, unless some cause appear to the contrary".

I'm really just having difficulty understanding what this means. Could somebody explain what this means? Thanks.
