and that, if others had been substituted in their place, the Britisli
Government, committed to the support of their own nominees, would
have become entangled in local affairs. The minor stipulations which
it was desired to insert in the treaty might, he conceived, be enforced at
any time when a necessity for them should arise, for they would be in
harmony with the general spirit and objects of the treaty, which were
perfectly well understood by the Arabs. In his opinion, any condition
which obliged the boats of particular ports to put to sea unarmed would
make it incumbent on the British Government to protect them from the
attacks of their enemies ; and the export of ship-timber from India appeared
to him to be a question of the internal regulations of that country, to which
it was unnecessary to refer in a treaty with the Qawasim. But the prin
cipal argument of Sir W. Grant Keir was that, though a treaty might
be entered into with the Qawasim to restore confidence, " any measure
calculated to secure their reform must have its foundation in power,"
and that reliance must be placed, not on the binding power of any
agreement, but rather on the moral effect of the defeat which the tribe
had sustained, and on prompt and effective action by the naval and
military force which it was the intention of the Honourable Company to
maintain for the future in the Gulf. By the treaty death and "for-
feiture were declared to be the penalty of piratical crimes, and, such being
the case, it could not be said that the treaty failed to render punishable
the violation of its own terms.
In the end, though in certain respects the views of the Bombay
Government remained unaltered, the settlement as arranged upon the
spot was allowed to stand; and subsequent events proved the policy of
Sir William Grant Keir to have been no less judicious than it was
liberal,
