text: To Dimapur with Commandant. Found the Railway resuming work, the Permanent Way Inspector having repaired the pump which no doubt he had put wrong himself.
text: Monigal Pathan complains of not having been paid in full for metalling the bazar roads.
text: I intend assessing to sweeper tax the bazar stall holders. They make more mess than anyone.
text: Sadaram and Saligram have buildings upon the plot now divided up among the Mussalmans. They will have to remove them.
text: I learnt that the ringleader of the non-cooperative students who came to Dimapur was one Fula Singh, a Sikh student of the English Law College at Gauhati, whose cousin Umar Singh has a plot in the bazar on which he has a shop which he does not occupy, but which is merely a building erected to comply with the conditions of keeping the site.
