woman; and that raised a question upon which the case The law upon the effect of a power of appointment has been since re-argued; (upon this point it is not yet, in a married woman has recently received an interpre- we believe, reported); and the same learned judge who tation, which, if it be correct, will lead to consequences decided the first point has held that the intervention of & little singular, and perhaps not altogether conve- fraud makes a great difference; that it puts the feme nient. In the case of Vaughan v. Vanderstegen (2 coverte in the same position as if she were sole; and that Drew. 165) the Court elaborately discussed the prin- for her debts, so contracted under a false representation ciple on which the power of a married woman to con- of her being sole, the property subject to her mere getract debts, or, more strictly to speak, to incur liabili- neral power of appointment by will, is chargeable in the ties, is based, and treated it as settled law that she hands of her appointees, exactly as if she were a man or a can only do so in respect of her separate estate. The feme sole; and the Court has held that it is quite immaquestion, then, in that case, being whether the property terial whether the false representation of discoverture over which a married woman has a general power of is made for the purpose of defrauding the creditor, appointment by will only, without any limitation in or whether it is made for family reasons, without any favour of herself beyond a life estate, is liable, in the intention of particular fraud. It is sufficient if the hands of her appointees, for debts contracted by her feme coverte holds herself out generally as a feme sole, during coverture, it became necessary, for the purpose and the creditor believes her to be so, to impart to her of deciding that question, to consider whether such the power to contract a debt in respect of the property property, or such power, is in any respect her separate over which she has only a power of appointment; estate; and the Court came to the conclusion that it is though, if there were no such misrepresentation, she not; that the power is a mere power, and not an estate; would not have that power. The learned judge apthat the property subject to it is in no sense the married pears, in so deciding, to have relied much on the case woman's separate property; that she can have no en- of Savage v.

But we must not joyment of it of any kind; and that the mere fact that assume that he decided altogether on the authority she can dispose of it after her death by a special and of that case, for it was in its circumstances extremely particular mode of disposition, without the aid or inter- different from the case before him, of a power of apvention of her husband, does not make it her separate pointment by will only.
