JUDGMENT

Wilson and Porter, JJ.

1. The only compromise which a Court can in any case be bound under Section 375 of the Civil Procedure Code to enforce is one which adjusts the suit wholly or in part-not one which goes beyond the suit.

2. The compromise proposed in the present case embodies a new contract, much wider in its scope than the mere adjustment of the claim in suit. We think, therefore, that the Small Cause Court Judge is not bound to enforce it, and, if not so bound, he is certainly right to refuse.

3. He cannot, however, modify it. He must leave the parties to proceed with the case as they may choose.
