THE FIGHT IN SOMALILAND. DERVISHES' DETERMINED STAND. Additional particulars have come to hand of the light between Colonel henna's column and the Mullah's followers at Jibhalli on December 19th. Arriving at the .Jibhalli waterhole shortly before daybreak Colonel Kenua sent parties of the* Tribal Horse round on either side of the bush to take the enemy in the rear, supporting the eastern party with two sections of the Indian Mounted Infantry. After an unsuccessful attempt to entice the enemy's centre, leaving the Bikanirs as a support with the led horses, Colonel Kennaattacked the Somalia both in fron: and on the Hanks with the remainder of the Mounted Infantry and the Tribal Horse. The enemy was foftned up three deep in a line 1,500 yhrds long. It being found that they were in greater strength than had been expected, and there being some danger cf our own flanks becoming enveloped, the order was :Jvcn to retire 011 the Bikanirs, who covered the movement with effective volleys. The British advanced again, this time with the Bikanirs in tie centre, but on a report coming in that the expected reinforcements from the Shile Madu tills, where the MuJla; I' believed to be in force, eight hours' march away. Colonel Kenna sent orders to half the infant!y. who were waiting in reserve six miles away. to fall back four miles further with the camels. The remain^ r of tho fores, then began to retire. It. was followed by parties of the enemy. After a short midday halt the tcxce proceeded back to Badwein. The enmy were under Suleiman Aden. Their est inrated strength was 500 rifles and 1.500 spears, ■vntli <200 ponies. Their losses were officially i>taied to be eighty killed and 100 wounded. Our loss was two men cf the British Mounted Ir.fantry wounded, and two Tribal Uorse killed and two wounded. A satisfactory feature of the skirmish, which was otherwise insignificant, was the military spirit dis- played by the Tribal Horse. 1111" Confident and determined manner in which the enemy stood their states Router's coire- spondent, gives reason to her tb.u the Mullah will make a, Stand against the Unt1: advance.
