The courts have been called upon in a number of cases to pass on the question of the relation which exists between the owner of the land, and one who works it upon shares under an agreement with the owner. The number of times that this question has been presented, is evidence of the uncertainty and perplexity which have been supposed to prevail in relation to the matter. As the question involved is not without its importance, it may be interesting to consider the subject, and ascertain what the principles are which govern in such cases.
