Account of tho Movement.
London, Jan. 28. General Buller'a
dispatch to the war office states that
gplonkop was abandoned on account of
lack of water, inabilitv to bring artillery
there and the heavy Boer flie. General
ISulter gives no list of casualties. Ilia
whole force withdrew south tbeTugela
river, with the evident intention of reach
ing Ladymith by another route.
Following i ttie text of General Bul
ler'a dispatch, daled Six-arman's Camp,
Hatorday, Jan. 27, 6:10 p. in.:
"On January 20 Warren drove back
the enemy and obtained possession of
the southern crests ot the high tableland
extending from the linn of Acton Homes
and Hongorspoort to the western Lady
smith hill. From then to January 25
he remained in close contact with the
Hour Held Strong I'oaltlon.
"The enemy held a strong position on
a range of small kopjes stretching trora
'""finest to southeast acroHS the plateau
.heh-Tt bank'of ti.V Tuge1i7,'M'm'tQB.
wwition held was perfectly tenable, but
did not lend itself to an advance, as the
southern slopes were so steep that War
ren could not get an effective artillery
position, and water supplies were a difficulty.
"On January 23 I assentea io ins at
tacking Spoinkop, a large bill, indeed, a
mountain, which was evidently the key
to the position, but was far more accessi
ble from the north than from the south.
On the night of January 23 he attacked
Spionkop, but found it very difficult to
hold, as Us perimeter was too large, and
water, which he had been led to believe
existed, In this extraordinary dry season
was found very deficient.
"The crests were held all that day
against severe attacks, and a heavy shell
fire. Our men fought with great gai
lantry. 1 would especially mention the
conduct of the Second Cameronians and
the Third King's rifles, who supported
I the attack on the mountain from the
Bteepest Bide, and in each case fought
itlieirwavto the top; and the Second
! Lancashire fusiliers, and Second M iddle
sex, who magnificently maintained the
hest traditions of the British army
throughout the trying day of January 24;
nd Thornevcraft's mounted infantry,
who fought through the day equally well
i alongside of them.
"General Woodgate, who was in com
mand of the summit, having been
wounded, the officer who succeeded him
decided on the night of January 24 to
abandon the position, and did bo before
dawn January 25.
"I reached Warren's camp at 5 a. ro,
on January 25, and decided that a second
attack uoon Spionkop was useless, ami
that the enemy's right was too strong to
allow me to force It.
Decided to Withdraw.
"Accordingly, I decided to withdraw
the force to the south of the Tugela. At
Oa. tn. we commenced wtthdraing;the
men, and by 8 a. m., January 27 (Satur
day), Warren's force was concentrated
south of the Tugela without the loss of a
man or a pound of stores.
"The fact that the force 'should with
draw from actual touch in some cases
the lines were less than 1000 yards apart
with the enemy in the manner it did,
is, I think, sufficient evidence of the
morale of the troops, and that we were
permitted to withdraw our cumbrons ox
and mule transports across the river, 85
yards broad, with 20-foot banks and a
very swift current, unmolested, is I think
proof that the enemy has beon taught to
respect our soldiers' fighting powers."
Account From Boer Side.
Boeb Headquarters, Modderspruit,
Upper Tugela, Wednesday, Jan. 24,
midnight, via Lourenco Marques, Thurs
day, Jan. 25. Some Vryheid burghers
from fie outposts on the highest hills of
the Hpionkop group rushed into the
laager saying that the kop was unable to
stand, that the English had taken it
Reinforcements were ordered op, but
nothing could be done for some time, the
hill being enveloped in thick mist,
At dawn the Heidelberg and Caroline
contingents, supplemented from other
commandos, began the ascent of the hill.
Three spurs, precipitous projections,
faced the Boer positions. Up these the
advance was made, The horses were
left under the first terrace of rocks.
Healing the steep hill, the Boers found
that the English had improved the op
portunity and entrenched heavily. Be
tween the lines of trenches was an open
veldt, which had to be rushed under a
heavy Are, not only from rifles, but of
lyddite and shrapnel from field guns.
Three forces ascended the three spurs
co-ordinately, nnder cover of fire from
the Free State Kropps, a Creusot and a
big Maxim. The English tried to rush
the Boers with the bayonet, but their
Infantry went down before the Boer rifle
fire as before a scythe.
The Boer investing party advanced
step by step until 2 la the after noon
when a white flag went op, and 150 men
in the front trenches surrendered, being
sent as prisoners to the head laager.
The Boer advance continued on the
two kopjes east of Spioukop, Many of
the Boers were shot, but so numerous
were the burghers that the gaps filled
automatically. Toward twilight they
reached the summit of tbe second kopje,
but did not get further. The British
Maxims belched (flame, but a wall of fire
from the Mausers held the English back.
Their center, under this pressure, gradu
ally gave way and broke, abandoning the
Tbe prisoners speak highly of the
bravery of the burghers, who, derpising
cover, stood against the skyline edges of
the summit to shoot the Dublin fusiliers,
sheltered In the trenches.
Firing continued for some time, and
then the fusiliers and light horse, serv
ing as infantry, threw up their arms and
rushed out of the trenche.
Tbe effect of the abandonment of Spion
kop by the English can hardly be gauged
as yet, but it must prove immense. An
unusually hlgk proportion of lyddite
shells did not explode.
FaANgroKT.Ky., Jan. 30. While walk

waj tothe capitol building, at 11:10
cratic contestant for governor of Ken
tucky, was shot down and very danger
Harland Whittaker, a farmer from
Butler county, the home of Governor
Taylor, is now in jail in Louisville
.i,arB,l with the crime. There is no
direct evidence against Whittaker, and
he was placed under arrest more because
he was caught around the capitol build
ing when the shots were fired than for
any other apparent reason. He denied
in the most positive manner that be had
any connection with the shooting or
knew anything about it. He was running
toward the scene of the shooting, and
not away from it, when he was caught
Henstor Goebel was wounded by a
riflt) ball of small caliber, not over 38,
which struck him in the right side just
below the armpit. The ball passed
through the back part of the right lung,
across the body on a diagonal line, pass
ing out below the left shoulder blade.
No vital organs were injured except the
Mr. Goebel was on his way to the
senate chamber in company with Col.
Jack Cliinn and Warden Eph Lillard, of
the Frankfort penitentiary. Mr. Lillard
was a few feet in advance of Goebel and
Chinn, who were walking side by side,
Goebel being on the light and Chinn on
the left. From the cater edge of the
capitol grounds to the steps of tr e capi
tol the distance Is about 300 feet. Two
thirds ol this had been passed, and the
men were walking slowly, when suddenly
a shot rang out from a large three-story
bnilding which stands 50 feet east of the
capitol building. This building is used
for offices by nearly all tne leading
officials of the state. Governor Taylor
and tbe secretary of state having rooms

Maversl Shot Fired.
As the shot was heard, Goebel gave a
quick, involuntary exclamation of pain.
and made an effort to draw his revolver.
His strength was unequal to the task,
however, and he sank upon tbe pave
ment. With great rapidity several more
shots were fired, the bullets striking tbe
sidewalk close to where Goebel lay.
None of them touched him, however.
Lillard hastily turned around to aid
Goebel, who was supported by Chinn,
who bad his arms about him almost as
soon as be touched the pavement.
"Get help," said Chinn to Lillard, and
turning to Goebel, be axked : "Are yon
hurt, Goebel? "Did they get you7"
"They have got me this time," replied
Mr. Goebel. ' I guess they have killed
In less than a minute a crowd of men
was around Mr. Goebel. He was losing
much blood and was becoming very
weak. He was hastily carried to tbe
ment or ffie CapTtoi noier, aooufiwriwv
away from the spot where the shooting
occurred. Here he was laid on a sofa,
while Dr. Hume made a haty exami
nation, pronouncing the wound to be of
a nature that mutt cause death in a
short time. Mr. Goebel, who showed
great fortitude and courage throughout,
