Judgment:

Ameer Ali, J.

1. This is an appeal from the decision of the District Judge of Cuttack, dated the 6th of January 1892, reversing the decision of the Deputy Collector.

2. The narrow point for decision in this case is whether Section 373 of the Code of Criminal Civil Procedure applies to suits before the Revenue authorities under Act X of 1859.

3. We think the point has been virtually decided by the reasoning in the Full Bench decision in Nagendro Nath Mullick v. Mathura Mahun Parhi I.L.R. 18 Cal. 368, in which it was held that Act X of 1859, where it is still in force, is a complete Code in itself.

4. We, therefore, think that the decision of the Lower Appellate Court is correct, and that this appeal should be dismissed with costs.
