Army in Philippines
Will Be Reduced.
Washington, May 5. After a
careful consideration of the situa
tion in the Philippines its exists
today, the administration ha de
cided to reduce the army in the
Philippines to 40,000 men.
The opinion prevails here that
this number will be ample tor the
present needs of the serviae in the
islands, and if conditions continue
to improye in the satisfactory man
ner that )ms been shown in the last
few months, the force may be re
duced still further.
The expectation of the War De
partment is that all the volunteers
now in the Philippines will have
left the islands by the end of Jnne.
leaving only the regulars on duty
Following the departure of the
volunteers from the islands, the
regulars who were sent to Manila
in 1898, just after the outbreak of
hostilities will continue their move
ments home until the force is re
duced to approximately fu,000

great that she couldirtnally dic

Uncle Sam To Produce Coins
No official" i information concern
ing the new 3-cent piece, which it
is said tha government will- soon
coin tor use in the west, has reach
ed Chicago. The new coin is to
be of nickle, aud its radical differ
ence from all other coins with
Uncle Sam's mint mark on them
Ijes iu the fact that it will have a
note ih the center, it is the sup
position this hole in the middle
will euable the hurried handler of
ithe coin to detect its valtu by the
seuce of feeling. Some sii'ih safe
guard is considered ueceessary for
the reason that it is to be about
the size and weight o the present
nickel 5-e.ent piece. The size , of
the center hide iu the proposed
coin will be large enough to make
it merely a ring of metal, this hole
being about one-half the xiiameter
of the coin. It will prevent one
of the difficulties which handlers
small-silver coins were troubled
with when the mtal money began
to circulate after he era of papejr
money. The small coins which
got into the hands of children and
some classes in the remote district?
were treated as curiosities 'and
great prizes. lo secure their
safekeeping a favorite method was
to punch a hole in thei aud tie
them on a string. This des
troyed the circulation value of the
coins, and dealers who subsequent
ly, took them in had to stand the
loss, a fixed scale being finally
arraged for deduction for punched
dimes," nickels or other yeces.
The new piece can be strung with
out injuring it. .

HOW A BISHOP WON THE
PRIZE GIVEN FOR LYING
One of the strangest prizes ever
won by a bishop is in the Epis
copal palace at Fulham, where the
newly appointed bishop of London,
who got his bishopric through &
love story, will' live. Years ago
Bishop Proteus was riding through
Coggeshall, village in Essex, and,
seeing a crowd, asked what
was the cause of the assembly. He
.wqs told that it was the annual
lyiug -competition for the prize
of a whetstone. The bishop, greatly
shocked, drove t the place of as
sembly and addressed the gather
ing upon the sin of lying, adding
that he himself had never told a
lie in his life. The umpires at
Louce awarded the prize to the
bishop and had the wlietstone plac
ed Tu his carriage. The incident
struck the bishop's sense of 'humor,
and he had tlfe stone placed over
the fireplace iu the palace. Ex

This also was tlone, and a third

'To be'-bpenad a year .after the
