the first shots were exchanged between the advance guards, but
the Belgians allowed the Germans to advance slowiy. Firing
soon became firece und the artillery on both sides c?me into
The German artillery fire did not appear skilful and had
little effect, but the Belgian fire was deadly even at a range oft
2,000 metres, and played havoc with the enemy's cav slry. Not?
withstanding this, the Germans continued to advance on Haelen
?nd Cortenaeken and the battle became very hot. The Belgians
were forced to make their attack in Httie croups, ridii*?? across
fields. The countryside is intersected with hedges and hillocks,
but despite that t!- -wo sides met fiercely and the Belgians dis?
played great courage and daring.
The Germans hurled themselves against the barricades in an
endeavor to carry them by force, but the Belgians shot thrm down,
coolly and with precision. The attack on bridges was as savage
as that at the barricades. German officers could be seen pressing
the men forward into the attack, to meet certain death from the
Belgian guns.
Men and hor.ses fell like flies until at last, when they were
almost shattered, the order to retreat was given at 6 o'clock. The
German defeat was complete, and when it was over the Germans
retreated along the banks of the Gethe and the VeJpe in the
cr?aient disorder; in fact, it might be described as a rout. At
nightfall they were making their way hastily toward Tongres. The
German losses were more than a thousand men.
Not only is the report of the victory in the north confirmed,
but from Eghezee, in the south, ten miles north of Namur, comes
the news of another engagement which ended favorably to the
The defeated German troops in the north made another of?
fensive movement to-day, apparently with the object of recover?
ing their dead and wounded and abandoned material.
The Belgian General Staff desires that the importance of
ihe two successful engagements against the Germans ai Haelen
and Eghezee should not be overestimated. The successful way
in which both German forces were repelled with heavy losses is
highly significant as showing the splendid enthusiasm and fighting
form of the Belgians and by reason of the encouragensent given
to the allied armies, but the actual military significance should not
be exaggerated, inasmuch as the German forces engaged were
