Our ancr'tors brought this rule of law
with them to America, and it I now

ritory belonging to the Unitod States
for an unreasonable and unauthorised
iltrtrsion or uc of this common bene
fit an action will lie. An action will

to the proprietor vhoc right has been

'Attempts have, at times, been made
to lay down something like arbitary
rules by.which to determine, in cases
here,' from' drought ir ttliT eae,
there fails to le water enough in a
stream to supply the want of several
successive owners upon it banks, to
which ot thctn a prior right to the

the water of which is applied by one to
domestic use, by another to irrigate

mill; may either claim a precedence in

estates stand upon the stream v
The quvstion aroc in Hvaus v. Mer
riweathsr, reported in .1 scamm , where
the court of Illio undertook to pre
scribe rules applicable to cases like the
"one supposed. The stream, in that
, case, wa a small and natural one. The
' plaintiff and defendant both had mjlls

Hut a drought loving prevented such
supply, the defendant, who owned the
upper mill upon the stream, placed a
dam in it, by which the waur (lowing
' therein wa turned into his well, ami
the plaiutlfTe mill was wholly deprived
ol the same. As both were mill-own
ers, the determination of the question,
raised briwcuu llioui would not seem
to call for a solution ol the question
above proponed. Hut the court pro
ceed to diRcus it, undor tho inqury
whether the utitir consumption ol a
stream by an upper proprietor can, In

"To nuswer till- question satisfau
torily," aay the court, "it i proper to
consider tho wants of man in regard to
tho element oi water. These wants
are either natural or artificial. Natural
are saoh as are nbsolu'ely ncocssary to
be supplied, in order to hi existence,
artificial, suoh only as, hr supplying
them, hia comfort and piosperily are
increased, To quench thirst, and for
household purHscs, it is absolutely in
dispensable. In civilised life, water
lor cattlo is also nccesaary. These
wants must be supplied, or both man
and beast will iorih." The court then
go on to state, that, for manufacturing
purpose, or tlioo of irrigation, the use
of water ia not essential to man's exis
tence in this climate, whatever it might
be in hot and arid climates, and add :
"From these premises would result this
conclusion, that nn individual, owning
a spring upon his own land, from which
water flows in a current through his
neighbotVland, would li.v.o a right to
use the whole of it if nen ary, to Hal

purpose's Vnolodlng water for his stock.
If ho desires to use it foi irrigation or
manufacfuresj aid there be a lower,
proprietor to whom ita use is essential
to supply his natural wants, or for bis
stock, he must use tho water so as to
leave enough for such lower proprietor
Where tlie stream is small, and does
not supply water mora than sufficient
to answer the natural wants ottha diff
erent proprietors living on it, none of
the proprietors can uso tho water for
either irrigation r manufactures. Eaeh
proprietor, in bia turn, may, if necess
ary, consume airthe' water for these
purposes," that id, for the supply of
tb'ese Batnral'wants. The case goes on
to affirm, that if, beyond the supply of
these, any surplus is left, all have a
right to participate in ita benefits, and
no ralo can ba laid down as to how
much eaeh may use, without infringing
tho right! of ethers. The question in
such cases must be referred to a jury,
to say whether a party has, under all
tho circumstances, used more than his
just propotoaJ, of the water. And,
tried by the tests whloh had thus bees
premised, (be court had no difficulty in
holding the diversion complained of to
