and go by the Cape of Good Hope, or perhaps by way of
Vancouver and the Canadian Pacific Railway. In either case
the derangement of commerce that would be felt would be
enormous.

Gibraltar is a rocky promontory three miles in length and
three-quarters of a mile in extreme breadth. Its highest point is
1439 feet. It was taken from the Spaniards on 24th July 1704,
by Sir George Rooke, and has been held by England ever since.
It was besieged in 1779, 1781, and 1783, and has earned the title
of being an impregnable fortress. The Bay of Gibraltar is four
or five miles across, and affords a good anchorage. It is useful to
the mercantile marine trading with the Mediterranean, Spain, and
Morocco. Opposite Gibraltar, at a distance of 54 miles, is the
Spanish town of Algeciras.

Malta or Melita (the Island of Honey) is 17 miles long, 9 miles
broad, having an area of 95 square miles. With Malta is included
the smaller island of Gozo, with an area of 20 square miles, and
Comino, with an area of 7 square miles. Malta possesses one of
the finest harbours in the world. In 1798 Malta capitulated to
Napoleon, who was on his famous expedition to Egypt, and coveted
it as a French stepping-stone to the Red Sea and the East ; but the



Appendices 347

Maltese rose against their conquerors and blockaded them in the
towns. The island was taken by England, and confirmed to her
formally by the Treaty of Paris in 1814. The old capital of the
island was Citta Vecchia (Medina). In former days Malta was
taken (1530) by the Hospitaller Brothers, a military order, who
held it for 268 years. Valetta is the chief town of Malta now. A
large proportion of the Maltese population is centred round
Valetta. Their prosperity depends chiefly on the passing trade.

Cyprus has an area of 3584 square miles. The port of Larnaca
is 258 miles from Port Said, and 1117 miles from Valetta. In
1571 Cyprus was captured by the Turks, and has remained part
of the Ottoman Empire ever since. In 1878 Cyprus came into
British possession. The Turks retain certain administrative and
judicial powers, together with religious privileges. The island is
divided, for legal purposes, into six districts : (i) Nicosia, (2)
Larnaca, (3) Limassol, (4) Kyrenia, (5) Famagusta, (6) Papho. In
1891 the population was 209,291 of whom 23 per cent, were
Mohammedans. The island is governed by a High Commissioner
and a Legislative Council of eighteen, of whom six are official and
twelve elected. There are three electoral divisions, each returning
one Mohammedan and three Christians. It may be noted that
Cyprus was conquered by Richard Cceur-de-Lion in 1 191, whilst on
his way to Palestine. Here he married Berengaria. King Richard
sold the island to the Knights Templars.

The principal towns are Nicosia, Larnaka, Limassol. In 1891-92
the revenue was ,217,162, the expenditure 112,742.

One of the conditions of British occupation of Cyprus is that if
Russia restores to Turkey Kars and the other conquests made by
her in Armenia during the last Russo-Turkish War, the island of
Cyprus will be evacuated by England and the Convention of 4th
June 1878 be at an end. Meantime, ample provision is made for
freedom of worship for Mussulmans, for administration of religious
endowments, and for the general exercise of Mussulman rights
and privileges. A certain sum is paid annually to the Porte by
England.

Aden, Perim, and Socotra are British posts occupied for the
purpose of guarding the entrance of the Red Sea and the Straits
of Bab-el-Mandeb.

Aden consists of two peninsulas and a strip of Arabian territory,
covering an area of 70 square miles. The fort is about no miles

to the east of the Straits of Bab-el-Mandeb. Here is an important
coaling-station and also an entrepot for Arabian trade. Aden came
into British possession in 1839. The place is subjected to the
Government of Bombay.

Petim, a small rocky island lying in the Straits, is a dependency of
Aden. Its length is 3 miles and breadth if. It is garrisoned by
a few troops. It was first occupied in 1857.

Socotra is an island situated about 1 50 miles east-north-east of
Cape Guardafui. The Government of Aden pays a small subsidy to
the Sultan of Keshin for it. It was taken under British protection in
1886. The Somali coast protectorate extends from 48 15' to 49 E.
longitude. It is a small outlet of East African trade. To the
south and towards the interior is the sphere of the British Imperial
East Africa Company.

In former days Socotra was one of the sees of the Syrian
bishops.

The Kooria Mooria Islands lie east-north-east of Aden, and
were ceded to England in 1854 by the Sultan of Muscat, for the
purpose of landing the Red Sea telegraph cable.
