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.

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 The act repealing daylight saving* law, also passed over President]use 111    ,    s ,    £    #h Wilson’s veto.    vances’    lf    aJy’    agreed to ^ l£!
