ASIDE FROM THIS THE SIXTY-SIXTH CONGRESS PROMOTED MANY ACTS OF VITAL IMPORTANCE.
By the Associated Press
WASHINGTON. Nov. 20.—While consideration of the treaty of Ver sallies was the outstanding event of the session of the 66th congress-the first in six years in which republicans have controlled both branches—work of considerable legislative importance was completed and many other measures prepared, for disposal when the regular meeting begins Dec. I. The session closing today was an extraordinary one. It convened May 19 th under a call cabled from Paris by President
Wilson, primarily to consider the appropriation bill which failed at the session ending last March 4th.
Among the principal legislative achievements were:
Submission of the woman suffrage constitutional amendment to the states for ratification.
The prohibition enforcement bill, providing for the enforcement of war-time prohibition, passed over President Wilson’s veto.
FEDERAL FUEL ADMINISTRATOR GIVES WAGE CONFERENCE A TALK “STRAIGHT FROM SHOULDER.**
WASHINGTON, Nov. 19.—Seal* committees of bituminous miners and operators in the central competitive district went into executive session today to negotiate a wage contract after Federal Fuel Administrator Garfield has urged upon them the necessity for adjusting their differences and producing the coal the country needs.
Immediately after convening the operators and miners decided to continue their negotiations through a subcommittee of eight from each side.
“IT. S. Will Have Coal.**
Speaking with the authority of President Wilson’s cabinet, Mr. Garfield told representatives of the bituminous coal operators and miners that “the people of the United States need, must have and will have coal” and as long as the government stands they will not be prevented from getting it by “anything the operators or miners may do.”
Dr. Garfield explained that his purpose was to furnish the conference with the data which he would

Dr. Garfield said he wa® not yet prepared to say what conditions could reasonably be made in the price of coal as all the necessary data was not in hand. One of the items not yet determined, he said, was that of the federal income taxes for 1918, which the operators have claimed should be included in the cost of operation. The government has disputed this.
