At first the people expressed themselves quite satisfied with this arrangement' but subsequently some foolish person or persons started the idea that they had a right to b'lild again on the old sit.} and the cOl1sequence w:~s that no labour was forthcoming to level the new site and' only a few applications were IHade for building lots, all the more influential traders hanging back. On the 20th it wal< given out that on the completion of the Ilew bazaar no shops woul-} be allowed elsewhere at Ban excepting existing ones in Bau village and over gO applications f01:building lots were receive(1. 'rhe first 40 were allotted but the rest have not yet heen given numbers. It is thoroughly understood by those applying that the shop houses in the new bazaar are to be built with bilian posts :.nd plank walls l\nc1no kajang and leaf llttap walls are permissi ble. On the aOth olle 'rye J oon aile of Messrs The Borneo Company's men undertook with the COI11pany's consel1t to do the necessary blasting and levelling and the work is now progressing most satisfactionly.

By the death of Abang lYlaleng., the Government loses a very plucky ,and useful Native Oflicer who has been of great assistance in looking after the Balleh Dyaks, and was also much respected by them.

Early ill the month JH.htk, Bangau, and some ninety followers started off, it was said, to view the bodies of their relations killed by Ukits ill the previous month, 'but in reality to take steps to revenge their death, A pltrty was promptly desplttched to bring them back which they successfully accomplished, Later in the month I received news, by express from I(n,pit, that a large force of Pengs and Ukits, had collectctl in Ill//. Balleh prep[\'l'I1tory to attacking the DYltks. I placed little faith ill this l'llllJOUl'" which h[\,s since been proved to have been enormously exaggerated, and have no doubt that it was got up by tbe Dyaks as an excuse to go off themselves, on a fomy, I despatched Abang Ali to the Balleh, to remain there until further notice. 'While at l(ft'nowit, on the night of the 7tb, a portion of the Bazaar fell in, luckily the inmates,. bad removed from 'tbese uns:J.fe shops rt few days. previous so no accidents occurred, Lut some passers. by lmd [\,very nar).'ow escape.

On the 15th Voon Ieee who has a vegetable garden not far from Krolwng was badly assaulted by a man called Ah .Tang. Voon 1('eehad told 'Ah Jang that he must stop paying attentions to his wife, as be n.o longer gave them presents, on this Ah Jang came to the bouse at night and assaulted him; Voon Ree was sent to the General Hospital, Kuching, the Borneo Company's dresser from Bidi' being kindly allowed to accompany him, and on arrival there his eye bad to be removed, Ah J ang has not been seen since and probably made his way at once to SarnblLs. On the 19th instant the roof of one of the houses' in Bidi bazaar,caught fire, it is said to have been caused by the spark from a passing locomotive fortunately it was noticell at once, and put out before it could spread.

Of the weeding contl'l1.cbs fOl' the 21 and 46 acre fields about j}th part was weeded by estate labour as it Wl1Sleft n!1done by the contractor owing to coelies being lent during February to the ,Vater \Yorks; as' there were so many weeds coolies were able only to we~d 45 to 50 bushes a day instead of 175 to 200, therefore it will cost a great deal to fi~lish the work on which account the contractors were given up. This state of affairs would not have occUl'l'ec1 if the fields had been weedec1montbly. I will try to finish tbe weeding next month and then give it back to the contractor to be properly done monthly.
