BRITISH NORTH BORNEO. The recent reports of native troubles in British North Borneo and of preparations for a raid on the part of Mat Salleh were due to the spreading of a malicious report on the part of one of Mat Salleh's former adherents that it was in- tended to break faith with him and to put a price on his head. In consequence of this report Mat Salleh came down from the interior to Lawas, a place] on the west coast in the Sultan of Brunei's territory, to buy gunpowder. On hearing of this, the British North Borneo Company at once tele- graphed out denying the truth of the native report, ordering the punishment of the native responsible for it, and directing that steps should be taken to reassure Mat Salleh. In view of the misunderstanding the company have decided to hasten the departure from England of Mr. Clifford, the new Governor. They feel no serious apprehension on the matter, and con- fidently expect that the misunderstanding will be put right on the Governor's arrival.
