3; 1897, 2 Ch. 149) - namely, that under section 4 of the Settled Land Act, 1896, a charge on the estate of the tenant for life creates a compound settlement. This appears to have been expressly decided by NORTH, J., in the last-mentioned case, and was relied upon by Mr. Justice STIRLING as one ground for distinguishing that case from Re Keck and Hart's Contract. We ventured (as we had done before), with great deference to Mr. Justice NORTH, to urge that he had taken an erroneous view of the effect of section 4; that the sole object of that provision was
to render it unnecessary for a person entitled under an instruA ND

Payment in cash oboy, should render himself liable in damages at the suit of would suit the underwriters exactly, but in many cases it would another volunteer, against whom the order was directed. The be less advantageous for the company, and if the practice of facts of the case were simple : The plaintiff, a member of a underwriting is recognized at all, the amount of the commission volunteer corps, was, by order of the adjutant, kept in custody must be left to be settled by the parties.

Mr. The reason for the order was that an accusation of theft, BUCKLEY joins in the general objection to clause 14, with its afterwards proved to be utterly unfounded, had been made minute requirements as to the contents of prospectuses, and he against the plaintiff while in camp at Shorncliffe. One defence set up was, that the plaintiff and the defendants were subject Directors have to take commercial risks,

He expressed himself in As to this point section 176 of the Army Act, 1881, provides favour of the registration of debenture mortgages, but stipulated that volunteers shall be subject to military law " when they are for the freedom of companies in respect of ordinary commercial being trained or exercised with any portion of the regular chargos. Apparently this is secured by the Bill, which expressly forces"; but KENNEDY, J., held that the training, and therefore provides (clause 20 (2)) that it shall not be necessary to register the subjection to military law, ceased when the volunteers left liens by law or charges created in the ordinary course of business. the camp, or, if not then, at least when they left Shorncliffe In respect of accounts, Mr. BUCKLEY has carried the criticism of Station in the train. The Court of Appeal have held that the Bill further, we believe, than has hitherto been done, and the training and the military law continued so long as the has referred to the case of companies where all the ordinary corps remained under arms—viz., until it was dismissed in shares are held by members of the original firm, and the Hertfordshire. They were assisted in arriving at this satisfactory conclusion by article 374 of the Volunteer Regulations, preference shareholders are excluded from knowledgo of the

The latter provision, he considers, would make limited regular forces.” But even apart from this regulation (which liability go out of fashion, and, as regards private companies at was not before the judge in the court below), the construction, put by the Court of Appeal on section" 176 seems to any rate, it is very possible that it would have this effect. be in accordance with good sense, and preferable to that adopted by KENNEDY, J. A further defence was that, under section 158 of the same Act, "where an offence under this A CURIOUS question as to the power of directors of a company Act has been committed by any person while subject to military to secure for themselves compensation for loss of office arose in law, such person may be taken into and kept in military the case of Kaye v.
