from the distant Bam Yas of Dibai, and eventually even froni
the'Utub ; while Qais was supported, as was not unnatural, by the
Bani Ma'in of Qishm and by some at least of the Qawasim. The
young Sa'id-bin-Sultan, who was at Barkah, meanwhile succeeded in
capturing Sib and Bidbid, and the garrison of Masqat, encouraged by
Sa'id's successes and themselves strengthened by reinforcements, were
about to attack Mat rah, when Qais, finding the tables turned, entered into
negotiations; so unfavourable was his situation that the • settlement
deprived him not only of Matrah but also of all the other acquisitions,
except Khaburah, which he had made since the death of Saiyid Sultan.
A subsequent attempt by Badar to recapture Khaburah was foiled by the
treachery of Hamaid-bin-Nasir of ^Ainain, who on two occasions had
received a present of $40,000 for his services against Qais; but the
forts of Bahlah and Nizwa in the interior were surrendered to Badar
by Muhammad-bin-Ahmad, the brother and ally of Qais.
Assassination of Badar by Said-bin-Sultan, 1807.
The power of Qais had no sooner been broken than Sa'id-bin-Sultan,
now about seventeen years of age, determined to throw off the yoke
o a at, n o, by the assassination some time previously of Muhannah-
bm-Muhammad, the Va'arabi ruler of Nakhl, had deprived Sa^id and
his brother of their most loyal and disinterested adherent. In 1807,
fea id, having decoyed Badar to Barkah, caused him to be murdered near
hat place m circumstances of exceptional treachery ; but his act, instead
mee mg nith the reprobation which it deserved, was generally an-
plauded and accepted as a proof of his capacity to rale. It led moreover
a reconci ia ion with Qais, who now placed himself involuntary
subordination to his successful nephew.
