Well, um, I'm not sure.  Here is a scan showing where I got my "bad"

Knowing something of the intention of this music, the editing looks
right to me, i.e. stems joined, slurs on both noteheads.  As a tubaist
playing either line, I shouldn't have to watch for slurs on the other

What do you think?

By the way, this was published by a branch of the Salvation Army, one of
the big names in British Brass Band music.  The composer is Stephen
Bulla.  (the right edge of the scan was chopped)
