State of Delaware, in Boulloek Admv. 1
vs. Wilmington City Railway B Penn,

Street and Sewer Department Hoard
of Water Commissioners and a Muni

partition of Municipal authority in the
City of Wilmington.
"The purpose and object of the

purpose for which said Department
was created. The preservation of good

ably the duty of the Board of Police,
Commissioners they have the power

confident that the development of its

trade consumption will govern that,

The title of the consern Is the Amer

The principal articles used in the
manufacture of wood pulp silk are
wood and cotton.
..... ...... This country's;
bountiful supply of both articles con
vinced the capitalists that here were
peculiar advantages for the enterprise
w ords, in said Act that the authority
of the city of Wilmington by said
words in confined to the distribution
of water within the limits of the
boundaries of said city.
*'A «artful examination of (hr Act,
relating to the Hoard of Water Com
mlssioners and all other acts of »he
General AWmbly referring to that
body, fails fo reveal any expressed
authority given to the Board of Water
Commissioners to supply w ater be

Kehlll vs Jersey City, 71 N J. L 109
and Farwell vs Seattle SK far 't:
it was held that under acHy's ^x
pressed or implied authority to ac
quire water works or make contracts
for supplying the City of its Inhabl
tants with w ater there ts no pow er
to supply or fo contract to aupply an
other municipality with water. Nun.
erous cases hold that In the absence
of any expressed grant a municipality
has no power to extend its water ays
lem beyond its limits.
"The reason for the above opinions
seems to be that a municipality
first duty Is to its own Inhabitants,
and that by supplying water beyond
lts limits or to other municipalities
it Is likely to endanger its supply of
water to its own citizens.
-In the absence, therefore, of ex
pressed authority from the Legislu
Hire to supply water beyond its limits
I in my opinion the Board of Water
1 Commissioners of the city of Wiiining
ton has no power to supply water
even for fire protection to the town
