Ad Olio listened to tlio delightfully lull'
monious strains which cnino from tliu Mntiuo
Hand nt tlio Funke Tuesday evening mid saw
thobrllllnnt uniforms n'd accoutrements of
Director Housn mid his men, ono win inehtis
ed to wonder somewhat nt tliu maintenance
of such mi Institution as tliu Marino Hand in
the sometimes too democrat to United Htutes.
When you think how stinng Is tliu prejudice
In this country of ourM ngnlnst the glided
trappings of loynlty, against show and glit
ter of nil kind, nnd how that one Idea, so
characteristic of American civilization that
of practical utility hits swept almost every
thing beforo it, much that lu beautiful be
cause it is drcnud non-essential by tliu
modern vandals w ho nru olfui ing up tliu best
treasures of nrtmid Is-unty in thu laud on
tho alter of materialism who mo doing their
utmost to rob us of tlio Ideal and to miku us
bow down before thu shibboleth of n sordid
practicality when you think of all this, Isn't
it a little strange that tho Marino band
should have escnjied thu reformers clutch.!
This band Is maintained nt tlio public ox
penso and it's nolo duty is to gladdeu tho em s
of thu occupants of tho U'blto House. Tliu
band occupies an exactly similar place to
that of tho trained orchosti as which mo to
bo found in almost every foi uigu court. In
it's gay apparel uml tho position it holds it
does indeed savor of royolty and yet It is suf
fered to exist. Happily tho fanatics who tiro
brnvo enough to decry tliu Mai ino 'land, aro
few nnd every Amei lean ought to (eel proud
that it is distinctively American Institution;
that it is a national concern. The Marino
bund U one of tho Hnest in tliu woild. It
looses nothing by del Ivlng Its mpport from
a democratic government. In it aro gutheied
the most competent musicians that can bu
found nnd Phillip Bousn, thu director, hits
spread Its fame fnr nnd wide.
The concert moro than answered the ex
pectations of tho immense audience which
packed the opcrn house. It recalled tlio ap
pearance of Strauss and the Vienna orches
tra and artistically considered, Sousr sunVr
ed little by comparison w Ith the Waltz King.
In its way the fumed band" wus fully equal
to tho much vaunted orchestra, nnd thu al
most perfect harmony was a palpable sur
prlso to many of tliu auditors not familiar
with tbo capabilities of a Qllmoioor u Sousa.
Tho program was skillfully urrunged so as
to please all clases and thoru was no one
present who could not appreciate at least a
portion of tho musio. The pcrforman co wns
an emphatic, artistic triumph, and It is sur
prising that tho audience should hnvo been
so reserved. Accustomed to receiving veri
table ovations in other cities, thu coldness of
the Lincoln peoplo must havo furred unpleas
antly on the musicians, and left a not very
high impression of our appreciation. Miss
Decca sustained what has been said of her
and was very well received.

what has been written concerning thu etrec
tlveueti of the comedy music as rendered by
the Marine Baud. "The Musician's Strike"
ond "The Chariot Itace" were among the
favorite selections. "Swaneo River" wus
sung by Miss Decca with much effect upon
her recall after thu rendition of the Bwlst
song. Lincoln was very fortunate In being
included in the route selected by our national
baud for its llrt tour.

of the dllllculties they have to encounter Is
