ine band is as much a government

them it fills Its own particular sphere,
and like them it is supported by gov

the republican was less than a quar

tary band and perform work commen
surate with such a designation. For
about three or four decades more,
under leaders some of whom were
good and some indifferent, it did its
work with a membership of about 30.
The foundation for the band as it is
today was laid by an act of congress
which was signed by President Mc
Kinley in 1889, and by the provisions
of which the personnel reached it.
