THE RICHMOND PAJj "LADIUM -NI SUN-TELEGRAM, FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 24, 1909. BAUD TROUBLE TO BE SETTLED soon Navy Secretary at Celebration Understanding Will Be Reach- ed by Union and the Fall Festival. FIRST BID WAS TOO HIGH 80 IT IS PROBABLE UNION OR GANIZATION W?LL SUBMIT A .LOWER ONE--QUESTIOn' WAS CON8IDEREO. , -t , .. , ; ' .: .'.' - The question of unionism entered In to the discussion of the executive com mittee meeting of the Fall Festival last evening, and the band proposition waa again thoroughly rehearsed. Bids were submitted by the Richmond City and the Union bands, and the whole Blatter resolved itself into a business proposition to the executive commit tee. While it was the unanimous opinion of the committee , that both bands of this city be employed, the bid of the Union band was entirely too high and the executive committee feels that if they can get just as good music and decidedly cheaper, from another band they should take it and the mat ter should be viewed purely in the light of any other business proposition -nt question of finance. (v ; A Fair Proposition. 1 -Walter Runge represented the Union band at the meeting last evening and stated that it was not his, Intention to appear hostile towards the committee or the fall festival That all of the members of the band were just as much interested in the welfare of Richmond as anyone else and that if" the Union band was not employed lie .did nt be lieve it would occasion any ill feeling or cause any trouble to arise over the engagement of Smitties band of Cin cinnati, which is a union organization. It was stated by Mr. Runge that Smit tie's band would be permitted to play in this city even though the local union band were not employed according to the rules of unionism, providing the local union did not object to such a procedure. This changed attitude on the part of -the union band met with the decided approval of all the mem bers of the executive committee, who greatly appreciated Mr. Runge's friendly view of the matter. The committee found that they were up against exactly the same proposi tion with which the; union band has had to face on frequent occurrences. If was stated by Mr. Runge that the Viand often had to send out of the city for other players and while they could easily enough get union players from other cities, non-union players were engaged by the" band because of the fact that they could be obtained much cheaper. Business Proposition. And so with the executive committee.-' If they can get another band to deliver the goods at a cheaper rate, it is for the interests Of the people, by whom the money has been entrusted, to the committee, to strike the best bargain possible. The matter was ex plained carefully to Mr. Runge who thoroughly understands the position apd realizes that if the union band Is not employed It will not be on ac count of .any feeling of hostility that exists for that organization. Mr. Runge stated that he would consult the members of the band and try and arrange for a lower bid if possible which will be submitted, at the next regular meeting of the executive com mittee next Tuesday evening.
