various ports in the Gulf where they would be maintained and
fed in special buildings, under surveillance, but with a certain
amount of liberty, for one or two years.
It would be an excellent thing if, in addition, one or two boys of
principal inhabitants of the villages could be sent to India,
Basrah or Mohammerah to school.
(5) A Persian force of Government tufangchis under a responsible man,
properly paid, should be stationed at Dilwar.
There is little doubt that if the above measures are adopted and can be
effectively carried out, Tangistan will be reduced to good and lasting order,
Bushire will be rendered secure from all danger on that side, and the British
garrison could be greatly reduced.
Measures (2), (3) and (4) are particularly important. There is no more
cogent method of making Persian tribesmen recognise the. existence of their
Government than by exacting the full payment of revenue. The disarma
ment of the villages will remove the means for their lawlessness, and the
possession of hostages from each village will ensure individual obedience,
wdiich is very necessary in a district, where most villages are separate units,
and composed of different tribes.
