sufferers. The misconduct of the Bani Battash resulted, in September
1886, m some loss to a Hindu trader at Quryat, but it was doubtless
made good out of the fine soon after recovered from the tribe. In
April 1887 two boats of H.M.S. " Kingfisher/' while lying at anchor at
Sur, were fired on by night from the shore and obliged to put to sea for
safety ; but no damage was done, nor could any clue to the author
of the outrage be obtained. At Sur in July 1887 one Hindu trader

British Government was obviated by prompt and friendly action on the
part of the Shaikhs of the Bani Bu 'Ali.
