LONDON, Feb. 13. The detailed accounts
which have lust reached here ot Lord
Kitchener's combined movement to drive
out the Boers from the enclosure et block
house lines show that the conflict waa very
picturesque and the most exciting Incident
of the whole campaign. Although -Appar
ently surrounded by an Impenetrable ring ot
fire and steel the Boers' dauntless bravery
and dashing charges ultimately resulted In
the majority's escape from the meshes of
Lord Kitchener's close guard.
The escape was a brave one. Lord Kltch
ener, who personally directed operations.
waa In close touch, day and sight, with
every detail of the movement. Tha Boers,
though hard pressed, shrank from attempt
ing to cross the railroad, which was
patrolled throughout the night by armored
trains, equipped with powerful search
lights. The train lights were supplemented
by stationary searchlights and the spectac
ular effect, as witnessed from the trsln waa
most striking. By the side ot the railroad
were the dark forms of men lying in
trenches or standing doing sentry duty
The gloom of the moonless night was Inter
mlttently relieved by the sweep of the
Terrlae Fire for Five Honrs.
Tha battle at Hellbron raged from
o'clock Friday night until 10 o'clock Satur
day morning. During the five hours a fear
ful ring of fire from rifles, cannon and pom
poms swept along the British lines in hold
ing Dewet's Boers, who made repeated at
tempts to break out of the circle of troops.
From various positions, behind rocks and
dongas, the Boers kept up a vigorous fust-
lade, hoping to find a weak spot in the line
Simultaneously others charged, but again
and again were the Boers repulsed, leaving
dead, wounded and prisoners In the bands
of the British. ,
At the outcet of the preparations the
Boers realised that the operatlona were not
merely an ordinary "drive," but a move
threatening them with total annihilation,
and General Dewet assembled his whole
force and discussed the situation with tha
commanders, with the result that the Bosrl
were spilt up into three forces. On Tburs
day night BOO Boers, headed by Vancollers,
rushed a force of the Imperial Light Horse,
yelling "Storm, burghers I"
One Handred Turned back.
About 100 Boers got through, but the re
mainder, encountering a tremendous Are,
were turned back Friday night's conflict
ebbed and swelled over an area of forty to
fifty milea, in which the long-hunted, ha
rassed and desperate men endeavored to
find outlets. The Boers at one apot
within thirty yards of the British firing
lice, but the barbed wire balked the burgh
ers and forced them to retreat.
The firing never ceased. - Aided by the
