Desky has within the past we?k received from new men in town proposals looking to the separation of himself first from the ownership and secondly from the control for a period of years from the well known Orpheum ineatre property, including the play house, stores, offices and hotel. Mr. Desky has so far declined to enter into any of the negotiations suggested, though flattering offers have been men tioned. Mr. Desky says that he will remain in control till the Orpheum is so well established as a popular family theatre that there can be no question about its future. He is quite well sat isfied with the business at present being done, will put opera chairs in the house and will have new talent for the stage from the coast regularly. growth of commerce in the past year structure fail with tne train, nut it coi- . i l 1 c : 1 : i- l or so. ! lapseu prematurely ui ils uv 11 weigm. The Bagbag river, which is about a hundred yards wide at that point, was splendidly fortified and the Americans were compelled to approach an open space from which the rebels had cleared every obstruction to sight.

General Hale's, which started yesterday, was earlier on the march and sweeping westward toward the railroad. The armored train was being pushed by quarter of a" hiiie over a corn field ta the bank" of the river, near the bridge i where the insurgents from a trench were peppering the armored train, then 'about 200 yard down the track. T3ie company found shelter in a ditch. ' Colonel Fred Funston called for vol unteers to cross the . river and the colonel himself, Lieutenant Ball a pri vate of Company K, a private of Com pany E, Trumpeter Barsefield and Cor poral Ferguson of Company 1 crawled along the iron girders. While this was going on the men of Company K from the ditch were fusillading the trenches in the endeavor to divert attention, but the Filipinos got the range front a trench down the river and their bullets soon spattered the water under the structure. Having reached the broken span of the bridge the small but valor ous party of Americans slid down the caisson, swam a few yards to the shore and crawled up the bank, the little colonel leading the way to the treoches, revolver in hand, while the few remain ing Filipinos bolted. Colonel Funston said afterward: "It was not much to do. We knew they could noV shoot straight and that our boys would attend to them while wo were crossing." General Hale's troops, on the right, had the hardest fight. They" followed the north bank of the river nearest the town from the east, . with the First Nebraska regiment on the left and the First South Dakota and the Fifty-first Iowa beyond. The country to be trav ersed was mostly jungle, but the Fili pinos stood hetir ground, -even in the open spaces. A DESERVED PROMOTION. SAN FRANCISCO, April 26. The Call says editorially of the promotion of CaL.JasV Smith : - All - Call for nians will feel something of gratifica tion in the promotion of Col. Smith of the First California to the rank of brigadier general. The California men in the Philippines have had much of the severest work of the campaign to do, and have distinguished themselves for steadiness of discipline as well as for daring valor on the field of battle. The promotion of Gen. Smith is, of course, a recognition of the service of his gallant regiment, and to that extent is an honor for the State. The elevation of the former colonel to the rank of brigade commander makes room, of course, for the ad vancement of other California officers in the First Regiment, so that a con siderable number of our fellow citizens at the front will come home with high-, er rank than when they went away. As these promotions constitute one of the very few pleasing features of this dreary war with savages in a far- ' off land, they will be received with the more gratification. Whatever may ba the differences of opinion concerning; the war itself, there will he none to feel other than a just pride in every evidence given of the military efficien cy and patriotic valor of our boys at the front. about the middle of June.

A Business Change. There is to be consummated within a day or two a deal which will result in the change of ownership of one of the oldest established businesses of the Oahu's Mill.

The Montana regiment and the Utah batteries at the same time entered the jungle, from which the insurgents, who were occupying large, stragging vil lages of huts, poured hwy volleys.

Coast p.Tpers just at hand contain two sensational yarns from Honolulu and the necessary contradictions. The first canard was an account of an erup tion at Kilauea volcano, reported to have been noted on the 1st of April. It is well known that there was no activ ity of the volcano at that time or at any other recent, date. The second story the Honolulu correspondents are charged with manufacturing is the ab surd report that the captain of the German warship at Apia had been made a-prisoner by the British ami American commanders of warships. This story was pronounced simply in credible. It is remarked by one paper that reputable journals are beginning to look with askance upon much of the matter sent from here by correspondents.
