"SOLDIER'S FUNERAL

Peter Ley, of 22nd U.S.I. to be Buried Saturday

He Died in a Manila Hospital June 7

The remains of Peter Ley, who died in a hospital at Manila, June 7, arrived in this city, Friday morning and were taken to the home of his sister, Mrs. Henry Kempel, 112 North Broadway.

Mr. Ley was a member of Company L, 22nd United States infantry, and his death was caused by acute dysentery. The remains left Manila June 15, and arrived at San Francisco, July 20.

Funeral Services will be held at St. Bernard's church, Saturday morning, at 8:30 o'clock. Company F, Eighth O.N.G. will attend in a body. The remains will be interred at St. Vincent's (sic) cemetery.

Mr. Ley is the young man who was accused of desertion some time ago, but the cruel story was afterwards found to be untrue, as he was serving with his company at the time he was accused of serving with the Filipinos."
