本期题目:
  • In Winters v. United States (1908), the Supreme Court held that the right to use waters flowing through or adjacent to the Fort Belknap Indian Reservation was reserved to American Indians by the treaty establishing the reservation. Although this treaty did not mention water rights, the Court ruled that the federal government, when it created the reservation, intended to deal fairly with American Indians by reserving for them the waters without which their lands would have been useless. Later decisions, citing Winters, established that courts can find federal rights to reserve water for particular purposes if (1) the land in question lies within an enclave under exclusive federal jurisdiction, (2) the land has been formally withdrawn from federal public lands—i.e., withdrawn from the stock of federal lands available for private use under federal land use laws—and set aside or reserved, and (3) the circumstances reveal the government intended to reserve water as well as land when establishing the reservation.

    Some American Indian tribes have also established water rights through the courts based on their traditional diversion and use of certain waters prior to the United States’ acquisition of sovereignty. For example, the Rio Grande pueblos already existed when the United States acquired sovereignty over New Mexico in 1848. Although they at that time became part of the United States, the pueblo lands never formally constituted a part of federal public lands; in any event, no treaty, statute, or executive order has ever designated or withdrawn the pueblos from public lands as American Indian reservations. This fact, however, has not barred application of the Winters doctrine. What constitutes an American Indian reservation is a question of practice, not of legal definition, and the pueblos have always been treated as reservations by the United States. This pragmatic approach is buttressed by Arizona v. California (1963), wherein the Supreme Court indicated that the manner in which any type of federal reservation is created does not affect the application to it of the Winters doctrine. Therefore, the reserved water rights of Pueblo Indians have priority over other citizens’ water rights as of 1848, the year in which pueblos must be considered to have become reservations.
  • The passage suggests that, if the criteria discussed in highlight text were the only criteria for establishing a reservation’s water rights, which of the following would be true?

    • A:  The water rights of the inhabitants of the Fort Belknap Indian Reservation would not take precedence over those of other citizens.
    • B:  Reservations established before 1848 would be judged to have no water rights.
    • C:  There would be no legal basis for the water rights of the Rio Grande pueblos.
    • D:  Reservations other than American Indian reservations could not be created with reserved water rights.
    • E:  Treaties establishing reservations would have to mention water rights explicitly in order to reserve water for a particular purpose.

正确答案: B
从题目的意思来看,题目的应该叙述的是过去的事情,并且直到今天还影响着我们,所以可以考虑用现在完成时态。
A. both 和 combination 用法重复了,况且 endure 使用的是一般现在时,时态不对,再者,endure后面应该跟介词for,不是in.
B. 正确
C. of 不用在good growing之前重复使用,因为题目愿意是说由于结合了良好的水资源和良好的生长环境,所以农业得以发展那么久,但是如果重复使用of,就会歪曲题目的意思。
D. of 不需要在good growing 之前重复使用,both 和 combination 用法也重复了。
E. 同D
