Patrick Boyle Is Back Again After Three Years' Service in the Seventeenth In fantry. Patrick Boyle, one of the many Free lmd boys who volunteered their ser vices to Uncle Saiu wbou the Spanish- American war was on. has completed his term of enlistment and is again at 'he home of his parent*. Mr. and Mrs. D.uiiel Boyle, on North Centre street. In company with a number of members of bis regiment, the Seven teenth regular infantry, he arrived at, New York city last week from Manila. After receiving their discharge from the government service, all departed for iheir homes. Boyle was the only member of the Seventeenth from this vicinity, but he was accompanied to Freeland by James Cu mm lugs, of Pittsburg, who few days here with hint and left last night for his native city. Both men were attached to Company F, of the Seventeenth. Boyle enlisted at Jersey City for throe years In September, 1898. Ills regi ment, after Its return from Cuba, was 'selected for duty in the Philippines, and he arrived at Manila on April 14. 1899. The trip was inade on the transport Sheridan and consumed fifty-four days. The Shotldan's course was across tho Atlantic, through the Mediterranean sea, the Suez canal, the Red sea and the Indian and Pacific oceans. Upon its arrival at Manila the regi mont was placed in activo service at once, and It was not until April 25 that Mr. Boyle was given an opportunity to write to his parents. In his letter, which was published in the Tribune on June 1, of that year, he gave an entertaining description of tho voyage and his impressions of the Philippines and Its people. This was the first letter written from the Philip pines by a private and published in this part of the stato and was widely copied by the press of the coal region. During his service in the Eastern islands Mr. Boyle's experiences differ but little from those of oilier soldiers, lie escaped both the bullets of the Fili pinos and the diseases of the land, not withstanding the fact that his regiment holds tho record of participating iu more engagements than any other command that was sunt to the Philippines. When he enlisted he was possessed of a strong, rugged constitution, which has been noticeably weakened by his hard service in behalf of tho govern ment. Before leaving Manila he was offered a good position as soon as his term would expire, hut he had enough of that country for the present. He has not yet decided upon what his plans will be for the future. Miners' Delegates Stated.

V 8 Centre street FREELAND, PA., FRIDAY, DECEMBER G, 1901. | Mine Workers of America, on the ground that they are in arrears up- I wards of 84.U00 on the assessment levied I ! by the Federation some time ago, for i the support of the machinists when tho nine-hour day. j In the discussion that ensued, before ) the matter was finally disposed of and the miners seated, the hostile altitude of the Brotherhood of Stationary Firemen and the National Uuiou of Steam Engin eers, both of which organizations the * Mine Workers have been endeavoring to } absorb, was plainly indicated. President Mitchell explained that the $4,000 referred to bad been assessed on an increase of membership of nearly 100.000 during the year, wlncu tie did not consider just. Besides, while their own strike was on, arrangements had j been made with the Machinists to pay them $5,000 when they sorely needed it, which was done. James O'Gonnell, president of the Amalgamated Association of Machinists, corroborated Mitchell and said that the money, if paid over now, would only revert to the Federation. The report showed 285 delegates, rep resenting 225 organizations, as against 231 delegates and 181 organizations last, year. Of the 235 organizations named 08 aro national, 14 state branches, 02 central bodies and 81 locals. The greatest increases in the year were made by tho Mine Workers, Brotherhood of Carpenters. Garment Makers, Plumbers, Boot and Shoe Workers and Seamen, which nearly doubled their membership. Marked gains wero also made by the Barbers. Retail Clerks, Brewery Workers, Long- I shoremen. International Association of Machinists, Journeymen Tailors and Woodworkers. Teachers' Institute.

Conrad Bisehoff, 71 years old, a resi dent of Tamaqua nearly fifty years, and well known throughout Schuylkill county, died yesterday. THEATRICAL. In the play, "The Burglar," which ap pears here tonight, the spectator is leu through a series of home pictures to tho sensation of a repulsive burglar discov ered redhanded in his nefarious calling by a child scarce suvun years of age, who, unusual to relate, instead of being scared out of her wits at the intruder Is more alarmed that not her loved ones, father and mother, shall be disturbed or bodily injured by coming iu contact with the midnight wanderer. Thechlld, in her precocious fear or others, is willing to aid the burglar in his selection of plund er, and the interview between the two has no counterpart In the annals of theatrical lore. It must be seen to be appreciated. X X t k 'Old Arkansaw," one of tho most popular melodramas of the times, will soon bo seen here. The production comes to us in its entirety and will be put on the local stage exactly as it was produced during Its celebrated record breaking run in Chicago. Frank O.
