dollars. The numerous bands stands for
open-air concerts, scattered throughout the
grounds, on the Plaza of St. Louis and else
where, consumed many a pretty penny in
their construction; and the prizes offered in
musical contests of various descriptions ag
gregate half a hundred thousand dollars.
This use of millions of money has secured
the exposition several striking musical fea
tures, not the least of which is engage
ments with some of the leading military
bands of the world for daily concerts.
The Garde Republicaine, the most famous
band of its kind in the world, comes from
Pa'lis September 5, for a four weeks' stay,
s a mark of favor of the French govern
ment. This will be the first time that It
will have played in a foreign exposition,
nd it will be the band's initial appearaee
in America. The Grenadier -Guards Band
of England, which will be in charge of a
titled officer of the Guards, comes August
9 for a six weeks' stay. King Edward giv
ing his permission after weeks of negotia
tion. Von Blon's famous Berlin band., tho
Philharmonic, completes the trio of for
eign bands, its engagement lasting the
eight weeks beginning October 3.
A Great Aggregation.
Von Blon's band was chosen after Em
peror William had refused permission to
two of his crack military bands to play in
America; and the most famous-of Russian
military bands-the Chevalier Guards
which the czar had permitted to enter into
ontract with the exposition authorities.
had to withdraw at the last moment, owing
to the outbreak of the war with Japan,
Still, the three bands that 1will come over,
together with America's leading kindred
organizations, the two bands attached to
he Philippine Scouts and the Philippine
onstabulary, and the Mexican Band, will
represent the greatest aggregation of mil
itary bands ever assembled at any expo
sition, and, as in case of the Garde Repub
lcaine, will include many never before
heard in this country.
No little diplomacy snd time were re
quired to secure consent of the various
governments to the appearance of their pet
organizations at the exposition. George W.
Stewart of Boston. who is manager of the
fair's bureau of music, had to travel over
the greater part of Europe and spend over
six months in constant negotiations before
he could say to President Francis that the
military band feature was assured.
Mr. Stewart. who is well known in mu
sical circles by reason of his former con
nection with the Boston Symphony, and as
manager and producer of musical festi
vals, left America last September on his
journey to convince the European govern
ments that they should let their best bands
play at the exposition.
Must Have It.
The night after Mr. Stewart's arrival in
London the Grenadier Guards' Band, which
was playing at the exposition in Earl's
Court, was augmented, for some special
reason, from thirty to sixty-five men. That
night Mr. Stewart heard the band in con
ert, and was so well pleased with it that
he at once determined to secure a contract
with it. if such a thing were possible. After
week's negotiation he had Colonel Ri
ordi of the Grenadier Guards' Regiment
enthusiastically interested in the plan, and
the latter's promIse that he would do all
h could through the various channels to
secure the king's consent to the proposition.
Mr. Stewart was assured that this was ab
solutely imperative, and that it was also
ecessary 'to gain the approval of the Duke
of Cambridge that the plan might be recom
mended favorably to the king himself. He
wa given to understand that no little time
would be consumed in sending the matter
up to the duke, so. while his proposition
was traveling upward by a devious route.
Mr. Stewart went to Paris to see what
ould be done about getting the Garde Re

the Garde Republicaine assembled and.
with Mr. Stewart as the sole guest, went
through a lengthy program, arranged
jointly by its audience of one and its lead
er. The concert only strengthened Mr:
Stewart in his purpose to secure a con
tract with the band, which he had, beeni
assured was impossible, and he actively
entered into negotiations with the French
government, which lasted for several
months, and were not definitely closed un
til a short time before the opening of the
fair. The French very coldly received the
roposition to entrust their- eighty crack
musicians out of tlie country. Several
times It looked as if the negotiations would
come to naught, and- only Mr. Stewart's
determination to have the band on his
list at all .hasards saved -the day.
Not Outdone by the Trench.
After paving the way in Paris, Mr. Stew
at went to berlin. The director-in-chief
of the beads'of the -German army, Profes

aroe the music for. the exposition hymn
"The Hymn of the West"-and who nap
pened to be in the German capital at the
time, representing 'his university at the
dedication of Wagner's statue.
But while Mr. Stewart was anxious to
secure the services. of the consol:dated
bands, and while Director Rossbeck and all
the authorities up 'to }Emperor Willtam
were favorably impressed with tho idea.
when the plan came to the emper.r ldm
eelf for approval, for some ren-"on un
known to Mr. Stewart, he said no, very
emphatically. When the kaiser says no
he means it, and Mr. Stewart then entered
Into contract with Von Blon's Band, which
really ranks higher than any of Germany's
military bands, and whose conductor; Franz
von Blon, is the leading compos- r of brnd
music and marches in the German enpire.
In St. Petersburg Mr. Stewart l.ad less
difficulty in gaining, the conscnt of the
Russian government to enter rtto contract
with the band of the Chevalier Guard, the
czar's own regiment, than he experienced
anywhere else. The. Russian government
sent him an invitation to hear the band.
and in every way made it easy for him to
secure its services, butt for the sa"ne reason
that Russia did not "place exh'oits at the
rair, she was compelled to abrogate the
co.ntract at the last moment.
Took Time to Do It.
All told, Mr. Stewart spent three months
In Europe, doubling on his trail. as it were,
taking up the negotiations in 13erlin, Paris
and London where he had lett o'ff cn his
tirst visit. But not- until w.'oks after he

ing the English and the French govei't
ments to let their pet military bands play
for the edification of Americans.
These foreign bapds, while paying espe
rial attention to the airs and c9moositions
of their respective lands, will by no means
limit themselves to that field, but will in
elude in their coneerts the best military
music of all nations. So Americans will
have the unique opportunity of hearing
King Edward's bearsain-cappad n usicians
and the 8nest instrumantalists of all France
playing the good old airs that are ?ear to
the heart of all America.
Another feature which, like the military
bands, will appeal 'to the popular mind
consists of the organ recitals. Some sev
enty-five organists have been engaged to
give recitals on the great organ. By reason
of its immense size, taking up one whole
end of Festival Halk which is one hundred
feet in diameter, this organ will attract
many thousands of people through awaken
ing their curiosity. The heads of the Bu
reau of Music had this purpose in mind
when they contracted for such a large or
gan, figuring that many would thus be
given a knowledge -of organ music who
would likely stay away from Festival Hall
were they merely told that organ recitals
would be held there.
