This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1887 edition.

Nuisance.--The statute provides for an action in favor of any person whose property is injuriously affected, or whose personal enjoyment is lessened by a nuisance, and, where a proper case is made, the nuisance may be enjoined or abated, and damages recovered. Injunctions.--Restraining orders and injunctions may be granted, under our statute, whenever it appears by the complaint that the jlaintiff is entitled more
