Nebraska Delegation Wants the Musicians
for Exposition Opening.
Chief Executive Maiden an Appoint
ment to Meet Them Thin Fore
noon to Talk * the
Matter Over.
WASHINGTON , May 6. ( Special Tele
gram. ) Concerted efforts are being made
to have the Navy department rescind its
action as to the Marino band going to Omaha
to open the exposition. After talking with J
the president Secretary Long informed Assistant -
sistant Secretary Mclklcjohn of the War
department that the former permission given
the band to go west had been countermanded
in view of existing conditions , the president
believing It was not tbo proper thing to allow
the band to leave Washington during the
continuance of war.
In view of the interdiction placed on the
band in accepting the contract .to go to
Omaha , flvo of the eight members of the
Nebraska delegation held a confer
ence with Assistant Secretary Roosevelt
velt of the Navy department this
morning in relation to the matter.
There were present at this conference Sen
ator Thurston and Representatives Mercer ,
Strode , Stark and Sutherland. Roosevelt
< now nothing ot the prohibition placed on
: ho band and gave as his opinion that the
Musical union of Washington may have had
something to do with the change in ar
rangements. Ho suggested that as the
president bad taken a stand in the mat
ter he thought it proper to go to the head
of the nation and secure his permission , If
possible. Owing to this being cabinet day
It was decided to postpone the visit of the
delegation to the White House until the
president had been consulted as to what
time would bo most convenient for him to
see the delegation.
Senator Thurston accordingly wired the
president as follows this afternoon : "Omaha
and Nebraska people made a contract with
the Marine band to open the exposition and
fill an engagement. They now understand
that orders are changed prohibiting tbo
band from going. Our pcoplo are greatly
exercised. Will entail much loss on the
exposition. The band has been extensively
advertised and the matter is urgent. The
entlro Nebraska delegation asks that the
band bo permitted to go. Wo wish to wait
on you , if necessary , at your earliest con
venience. Will you plcaso designate a
time ? "
To this message President McKlnley re
plied about 5 o'clock , stating that ho would
sea the delegation tomorrow at 11 o'clock
and at once notices were sent out calling
the members together , when they will en
deavor to change the mind of the president
as to the propriety of allowing the band to
leave Washington at this tlmn.
Uiilnlon by Mercer.
"Congress has finished work upon all the
appropriation bills , " said Congressman Mer
cer today , "and by June 1 would , under
ordinary circumstances , bo ready to adjourn ,
but these are extraordinary times , aud , In
my opinion , Instead of adjourning wo will
take short recesses of fifteen or twenty days
each. During a wur any contingency might
arise , and I think the wisest policy would
be to remain In session until hostilities
cease. "
It was stated by the officers of the supreme
court today that in all probability the peti
tion for a rehearing In tho" maximum freight

While men now enlisting at Lincoln may
not smell powder nor be called upon to ac
tively proceed against the enemy , It Is al
most certain that they will be moved east , ,
possibly to Washington , It being Secretary
Alger's intention to mobilize all troops east
of the Rocky mountains along the Atlantic
coast. Should it be found necessary to send
a largo body of troops to the relief of Com
modore Dewcy at Manila they will bo taken
from California , Washington and Oregon.
The scheme of mobilizing the troops from
Montana , Colorado , Wyoming , Utah , Idaho
and the two Dakotas at Omaha has not been
given up by any means , Senator Thurston
mvlng seen Secretary Alger today In re-
atlon to the matter , and it Is believed the
secretary looks with fa\or upon the scheme ,
providing thotroops are not brought east.
