object of the attack was undoubtedly plunder; but the excuse alleged
by the Kinds themselves was the Gwadar affair of 1879, and it is not
improbable ihat a desire to embarrass the Sultan may have been amonfr
the motives of the crime. The J amadar was released after a few davs
but stores of considerable value remained unrecovered, and the Rinds
were said to have renewed their threats of a feud against the British
and J Omani Governments. Major Mockler, who had an intimate know
ledge of Gwadar, acquired during his service there as Assistant Political
Agent, was deputed from Basrah to examine into the situation • and after
local inquiry he arrived at the conclusion that, while there w'as no dan
ger of a feud, the time had come for the coercion of the Rinds bv the
tioops of the Khan of Kalat, assisted, if necessary, by the British Govern
ment. As a measure of precaution, however, an escort consisting of a
J amadar and six camel-riders was provided for the protection of the
inspector of the telegraph-lme between Gwadar and Chahbar : and the sale
of gunpowder and similar articles to Rinds was prohibited at Gwadar
by order of the Wall.

o the outlying portions of his charge had been for some time in contempla-

a military escort, during the ensuing cold weather, the tracts of Panicmr
Kaij, and Southern Baluchistan. A part of his mission, as defined
his mstructmns from the Government of India, was to enquire into, and
so far as possible settle, the questions pending with the Rinds at Gwadar ■
and it was arranged that Major Mockler, on account of his local
penence, should be associated with him in the task. The Rinds were
