Lastly, it was resolved, that these words in the said Act, sc. “according to your wisdoms and discretions,” are to be intended and interpreted according to law and justice, for every- Judge or commissioner ought to have ‘duos sales, viz salem, conscientiae ne sit diabolus’ .Also discretion, as it is well described, is scire quid sit justum’ and therefore the commissioners of sewers ought to pursue as well their commission, as the oath expressed in the said Act of 23 H. 8. which they take to execute their commission, in the same manner as is there prescribed. And therewith agrees the description of discretion in Rook’s case.
