HUSTLE FOR MARINE BAND Nebraska Delegation Wants the Musicians for Exposition Opening. CARRY UP AN APPEAL TO THE PRESIDENT 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.

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. % D.
