FREIGHT LOSS HEAVY Head of Protection Bureau Plans Campaign to Run Down Men Whose Plunder Reaches Enormous Figure. New York.-Freight car robberies have become so frequent since the out break of the war that the railroad ad ministration, which has undertaken the task of suppressing the spread of such crimes, is launching a national campaign to put to an end the prop erty loss which, in 1917 alone, amount ed to $30,000,000. Many of these rob beries have been accompanied by mur der. Acting on Information that the New York city district is a "Mecca for freight car robberies," Phillips J. Doherty, manager of the property pro tection section of the law division of the railroad administration, is con ducting a personal "clean up" from the metropolis. Doherty announces that the cam paign Is national and that concerted action already had accomplished Im provement in big centers, such as Chi cago, St. Louis and Memphis. Accord ing to Doherty, however, "the most difficult and most important situation exists in New York." Enormous increase In Robberies. The work of breaking up the freight thieves involves, besides the co-ordination of the police forces of the railroad organization, the thorough and active co-operation of peace of ficers in all the cities, towns and vil lages, as well as of railroad employees. Manager Doherty, who has made a close study of freight stealing, de clares that the robbery of freight cars has increased enormously in the last few years. He cites an official report that 1916 losses amounted to more than $10,000,000, increasing to fully $30,000, 000 in 1917. It is his opinion that the losses for 1918 may reach $38,000,000. Corrective measures have moved rapidly. In a few months more than 800 individuals have been Indicted and several long penitentiary terms have been imposed. Among those found guiallty were two policemen in a West ern city, who were arrested in full uniform while conniving at the rob bery of freight cars. In 91 convic tions during the last two months the penalties have ranged from $50 fines to 21-year prison sentences. The new plan which the railroad administration will put into effect will enlist directly the active serv ices of more than 17,000 officers of the law, whose efforts will be directed by bureaus acting under the authorities I a ManY Robberie Have Bes Aeoempam. nled by Murders. frm Washington. The proeseeutions for car robbery are to be carried ito the federal courts Instead of into the Mstate courts, wbherever posible. Laud Plrats Worst of Criminals. "Tlhese ar robbers are the worst of eminals; they are land pirates and vandals, without a vestilge of patriot lam or aelence, who seie upon war condItions to plunder the needed re soure of the nation," Manage Do ety says. "They always o armed ready and wilhng to murder guards, and genually use bribery also to wli the conivance and betrayal of ral. read employees, who are the trusted eutodins of property. The courts hould not deal with these as ordinarym ienders, whose misdeeds are dea to wakhms o character." His Dream Came True.

T I O THE world the Persian gulf is an unknown water, a land. locked arm of the sea where slave trading, gun-running and piracy survive as legitimate occu pations, with a coast of towering cliffs and desert wastes where yellow sands rise in waves and foat in stifllng clouds of heat-a region whose ob scurity and perils guard and screen mysteries and romances that date back to the beginning of mankind. writes Louis A. Springer in Asia. To the European statesman, however, the Persian gulf is an issue fraught with deep significance in the struggle for world commerce and power in Eastern politics. The traveler after leaving Aden and rounding the Ras-e-Hadd feels that he Is truly departing from the beaten lanes and entering a land that lies buried In a world of its own. The un friendly coast, range upon range of high hills without a sign of vegetation or life, seems to raise a barrier against the mysterleus Arabia beyond. In a recess of the cliffs, and so securely hidden that you do not catch a glimpse of It until the ship suddenly points its prow to the narrow entrance of its harbor, lies Muscat, the first port. Two towering rocks, crowned by the ruins of old Portuguese forts, stand seutrp on either side, and below, built close to the sea wall, Is the town. Few places have a more picturesque situation and none could present a more enticing picture than Muscat's compact mass of little white houses set in the azure of an eastern sky and re flecting in the shimmering waters of its harbor. But unfortunately for the foreigners who try to live there few places have such an appalling heat, a heat which a Dutch traveler described as "so intense that it burned the mar row in the bones, the sword in Its scabbard melted like wax, and the gems which adorned the scabbard were reduced to coals." Muscat Once Held by PortugaL Muscat was one of the first towns of this region to fall to the western conqueror. In 1506, Alphonse d'Albu querque began here the peculiar sys tem of domination, religious persecu tion and colonisation undertaken by the Portuguese in the time of their naval supremacy. They held Muscat against all attempts at capture by Arabs and Turks until the middle of the sixteenth century. The forts above the town, a line of fortifications, and a cathedral remain as evidences of their occupation. As the capital of Oman. Muscat is supposed to belong to the Ottoman em pire; but, like other gulf provinces, it is necessary for the Turk to come and get it if he is to hold it. As he has failed to do this, Muscat is i1 reality ruled by its own sultan. While Muscat Is not a political dependency of the British empire as is Aden, It is practically under the suzerainty of the Indian government. This was brought about early In the last century, when it was believed that Napoleon was about to seise Muscat as a base for attack upon India, through a treaty of which one of the stipulations was "that the friendship of the two state may remain unshook to the end of time, and until the son and moon have lnshed their revolving careers." Muscat bas, however, proved for years a constant source of trouble to the British, by being the headquarters of supplies for the persistent and cunning gun-runner. Through the pro visions of an old treaty cbrtaln uro pean nations have the right to ship arms and munitions to Muscat There they ar e purchased by unscrupulous dealers, loaded upon dhows and lead ed upon the coasts of Persia or Bal histan to be transported by caravan Into the interior of Aa.

The shimal, the dreaded wind and rain squall of the region, suddenly settles down upon the vessel and seems for a time about to drive it upon the rocks. But as suddenly as they came, the thick, black clouds lift. As they roll away there appear ahead a rocky promontory jutting northward out into the sea and behind it rising to the height of 7,000 feet from the waves that pound at its base the mighty unscalable rock of Musendan. It towers a gigantic citadel built by nature guarding the entrance to the gulf. The low, crescent-shaped coast, of which the vessel is abreast, is broken here and there by cliffs rising sheer out of the sea. Behind, rise range af ter range of reddish hills, and far In the distance the shadowy peaks of South Persian mountains. The water is studded with islands, some scarcely more than rocky pinnacles, others rich in the green of tropical growth and showing minarets and mat roofs of vil lages. Here in this green bend much of the modern history of the gulf was made. Here after the capture of Mus cat came Albuquerque to contlnue his conquest in the name of Portugal, and, following him the Dutch, French and English in their early struggle for Eastern dominion. Built on Ruins of Ormuz. The only port of entry Is Bander Abbasi, once the starting point for the great caravan trade to Shiraz and southern Persia, now a sorry little vil lage with a shore line of stone and mud structures that may in the past have been defenses but are today merely screens to the poor buildings behind them. But Bander Abbasi, old and ragged as it looks. Is built upon the ruins of another town, ancient Or muz. Its crumbling piers and founda tions of public buildings and palaces show that Ormus must have been a place of wealth and importance. It was at least a prize worthy of fre quent raids of Tartar horsemen, raids so frequent that the inhabitants rath er than suffer their wealth and trade to be thus imperiled moved their town to an island four miles from the main. land. The eastern coast is rough and foe. bidding; the cliffs drop in sheer pre plces of hundreds of feet and the shore waters are strewn thick with dangerous reefs and hidden perfls to the seaman. Nature generously aids Persia in keeping her secrets and hold. ing the veil of her ezeldsiveneA. There is no port of large vesels until Bushire is reached, near the head of the gulf.
