Source: Daily Mail and Empire (9 June 1900)

This was among the first news reports to ever came out from Sabah (then known as North Borneo) and the news wasn’t always rosy. The natives were unhappy about the way their native land was handled by the British North Borneo Chartered Company, which was formed some two decades earlier. Taxation for sure was among the top of the list of dissatisfaction.

Petikan akhbar ini merupakan antara yang terawal dilaporkan dari Sabah (yang dahulu dikenali sebagai Borneo Utara) dan bukan semua berita yang dikhabarkan adalah baik. Penduduk tempatan tidak puas hati dengan tatacara pihak Syarikat Piagam Borneo Utara British mengendalikan tanah mereka. Syarikat tersebut ditubuhkan hanya dua dekad sebelum itu. Hal percukaian merupakan salah satu sebab utama dalam ketidaksefahaman itu.
