C'larle- E. Barber chief coiner at
the Philadelphia mint has heen in
Washington in consultation with
the director " of the mint and tin-
Secretary of War in regard to
designs for a new medal of hoir
and for the silver coins which will I
le issued for the Philippines if the j
bill now pending in the Senate
relating to the currency of the
archipelago becomes law. The
present medal of honor which is
issued by the authority of Congress
to soldiers for distinguished ser-
vices and personal bravery was
designed fort- years ago and is not
considered either in artistic merit
or design appropriate for the pres-
ent day. In the case of the silver
coins for the Philippines it is pro
posed to get up the designs and
prepare the dies in anticipation of
the pass-age of the bill. This is a
tedious work requiring great care
and involving labor that will extend
over several weeks.
The prevailing distress in the
Philippines growing out of the
depreciation of the silver currency
in use there and the imperative
urgency of remedial legislation
encourage the Secretary of War and
other responsible authorities to hope
Congress will take speedy action on
the relief bill and in anticipation
of that it is proposed to have the

NEED NOT KISS THE BIBLE:
Reason Why Perjury Has Greatly
Increased In New Jersey.
The repeal of the law requiring
witnesses to kiss the Bible has been
followed in New Jersey byia mark-
ed increase in perjury and a move-
ment it is said may be started to
restore the custom. Prosecutor Wil-
liam J. Crossley of Mercer county
in which Trenton is situated is
quoted as saying that "since the
solemn practice of kissing the Bible
has been eliminated from the oath
