Prospects of a coal famine drow nearer to-night with negotiations between operators anil min ers apparently at iv standstill. A sub-commlttco of tha Joint wuge scale committees was In session throe hours, but It wns unnounced after tho meeting that only tho general situation was dis cussed and that tho operators did not submit counter iironosfils to thn miners' demands. Tho conference will continue to-morrow. "No progress was made. Thy operators hUbmltted no pioposals. Wc aro still In 11 receptive mood," said John J I. Lewis, acting president of the United Mine "Workers. Tho operators' committee remained In session an hour longer. At tho end of that time Thomas T. Brewster, chair man of thn operators committee In the central competitive fields, spoke optimis tically, declaring that this was the first attempt at real negotiations since tho miners and operators met at Buffalo.

Th3 consuming public, the chief party In the present controversy. Dr. Garfield hold, is not in a mood to tolerate either excessive prices or prolonged stoppage of production.

From skyscrapers to churches and from the stock exchange to tho "movies" with tho horse show as a sldo line, the Plinco of Wales was whirled to-duv In a kaloldoscoole. view of jtho varied .activities of tho metropolis. I Everywhere he went huge crowds cheered I him to tho ncho giving him a reception , such even New York has rarely if ever I witnessed before. j The exhibition was given at tho old 1 Academy of Music, where his grandfather had been a guest tw years ago at tho his toric "Diamond Ball." Seated In the saineirm chair Edward VII had occupied, the Prince laushv-d with tho unrestrained enthusiasm of an unsophisticated school boy at the two comedies presented. Ho had asked "for something to laugh at" and ho got It. It was slapstick comedy of the slapstlckest kind with the hero doused In rivers, smeared with pie, bit ten by dogs and butted by goats, and tho Infectious laugh' of tho 'young Prlnco set tho wliolo great audience rocking. At the entrance to the theatro the Prlnco was greeted by 15 pretty girls dressed in the quaint costume of pro Civil War times, who courtesled after tho fashion of their grandmothers. The management of tho theatie also had managed to collect 15 survivors of the original Diamond Ball who wero pre sented to tho grandson of tho Prlnco they had mot to honor In their youth. From the thcatio tho Prlnco drove to j Madison Square Garden, whero he was tho guest at the Horse show of Com- I mander Eva Booth of tho Salvation army, tho famous show this year being a bene fit performance for tho Salvation Army lu recognition of Its bervloes during tho war.

Slipping out from a side entrance of the hotel ho went for u quiet stroll on Fifth avenue, unattended except by a couple of socrot service men, Ho passed practically untccognized through tho tremendous tldo of traffic which 1 swept down tho avenue In tho evening Ihomoward rush, One of a couplo of girls almost gave his Identity nway by call ing out: "Why, there's tho Prlncol" hut her companions ridiculed' her guess and before she could argue the point the Prince was swallowed up in tho crowd. To-night tho Prlnco was tho guest of nnnor at a ir.inquct given ny tno various British societies of Now York. Later In tho evening ho attended a ball given by Mrs. Whltelaw Reld. LABOR TROUBLES CAN 8E AVOIDED When Employer and Employe Realize That Men Are Only Stewards of God's Property, Says Dr. Ralph S. Cushman SPEAKS TO CLERGYMEN Tin- KxNcntlnlN Nrcenmirj- to Ilr-Airnk-enlnic of Chrfatltin Spirit Told hy Able HH-nkem nt Third l)nj' ScNnlon of Vermont Training; Conference Labor troubles can bo a'oldcd by tho ac knowledgment by both the employers and employes that God Is tho owner of nil things and man It tho steward placed In chargo of the administration of affairs, according to Dr. Ralph S. Cushman, head of tho stewardship department of the In terchurch World Movement who gave ono of the addresses last night nt tho Vermont Stato conference of tho Inter church World Movement In session nt tho First Church. Following the ad dress on Stewardship, an address on tho "Enlistment and Training for Life" was given by Dr. J. Campbell White, one of the associate gcnoral secretaries of tho movement. Ho estimated that 400,000 trained leaders for Christian activities throughout the world would be required during tho next five yoars. In addition, he said there will be nceeded about SW.OOO volunteer leaders for the work of the local churches to promote tho spiritual and community program to be adoptc-d by the denomination after the results of the survey of the Interchurch World Move ment have been presented to the churches. During tho address on tin- stewardship Idea, Dr. Cushman said that it was never tfio plan of Jehovah that man should re gard himself as tho owner of things. Ho said that man was puced In charge of the affairs of tho world and that his en Joyment of the fruits of his labor was to be on an unselllsh and not on a selfish basis. "It 1h because men and women regard themselves as the owners of property that there is so much selfishness and trouble over property" said Dr. Cushman. "The labor troubles are due to tho fact that there Is not a recognition of the princi ple of stewardship. The acknowledge ment of this principle on an unselfish ba sis will solve most of the labor troubles and It will also solve the church trou bles." TO SEEK 10,000,000 STEWARDS Tho speaker said that during the cam paign for enlistment of Christian stew ards which will follow a four weeks' campaign In tho churches that 10,000,000 Christian Stewards will be sought who will acknowledge the principle that God is owner of all things and man Is a stew ard. These will be asl.sd to give physical evldenco of their acknowledge by setting nslde a proportionate amount of their In come for tho promotion of the gospel In all the world and the support of hospitals and educational purposes at home and abroad. "Wo will not say that the tenth is tho proportion that men should give," said Dr. Cushman. J "We will emphasize the principle of the tithe as a convenient way of solving the proportionate giving or paying problems. There are many who will not lie satisfied to pay only one-tenth of their Income for benevolent puriioses because of their acknowledgment of the fundamental principle that God was tho owner of all things. One-tlfth is the proportion that some havo definitely set aside whilu others pay as much as one half. It Is not for any one to say how much or how little of tho amount of In come nnothcr should set aside but tho prlnclplo of proportionate giving or pay ing should be acknowledged. This prln clplo of proportionate giving is indicated In tho Scripture by rcferenco to rotting aside tho 'tirst fruits.' "Tho setting aside of a. proportionate amount of the InconiP for the advance ment of thovKlngdom oj" God Is a sure safeguard against the prevailing sin of covetousne.ss. It Is this sin of cov etousness that breeds abuses which cause revolts of ona kind or another." Dr. Cushman continued by saying that the acknowledgement of tho prin ciple of proportionate giving will lead to a deeper appreciation of spiritual truths and result In a revival of ro llglon such an has not been seen In this generation. Ho said that tho money test was tile real test of tho .sincerity of a man'b religion. To promote tho ton million league of stewards In this country and in tho missionary lands, Dr. Cushman said that stewardship and study groups were to bo organized In all the churches, tho stewardship literature would be systematically distributed, a four weeks' program. Involving pulpit messages on tho stewardship of llfo of prayer and of possessions would be submitted to the churches; that stew ardship programs would bo sent to the Sumlay schools, the young people's societies, woman'n societies ind tho mid-week prayor services and' that the whole program of education on the subject would bo followed by tho en listment for the- ten million league, THE FIRST ESSENTIAL Dr. Whlto In his address said that the first essential to progress In any lino and particularly tn tho lino of ad vance for the churches depends upon thn .leadership of tho separate units, hence the denominations comprising tho Interchurch 'World Movement havo definitely arranged to havo the plan for tho enlistment of future loaders presented to nil tho colleges and high schools of tho country. The Importance of tho country unit of the movement wan militarised for each unit was to bo a. recruiting station. "To recruit and train an adequate sup ply of tho right kind of leaders Is prob ably tho greatest problem of the church to-day," Dr. White, "Our oxpand Itig program can be carrlecd out only as rapidly as qualified leaders aro found or developed. . SHORTAGE OF CHURCH LEADERS "Thero Is now an ucuto shortage of church leaders. This shortage Is sure to be grat:y accentuated during the next few years when the program or tho church Is rapidly expanding both lu volume and lu variety of work being undertaken." Ho said that the Methodist Church ulone estimates that they would need 13,000 now eemployed leaders to carry out their pro. gram of expansion which Is part of their centenary program.

A stereoptleott lecture on fruit growing experience w.im given by Prof, F. C, Sears of the Massachusetts Agil cultural College , Two of the Resolutions Are for Ratification with Reservations The Other Is for Ratification without Reservation All Compromise Ef forts Fail Lodge Declares Treaty Is Dead So Far as the Present Senate Is Concerned Hitchcock Believes it Still Lives and Will Be Re-Submitted by President Wilson on De cember 1. Washington, Nov. 19. After threo In effectual attempts to ratify the peace treaty had failed the Senate lato to night gave up tho attempt and laid the treaty aside. All compromise efforts to bring ratifi cation failed, tho threo resolutions of ratifications all going down by over whelming majorities. The republican lead ers apparently despairing ,f bringing two thirds of the Senate together for any sort of ratification then put In n resolu tion to declare tho war at an end. Two of tho three ratification votes wero taken on the resolution drafted by tho republican majority, containing reserva tions which President Wilson had told democratic senators In a letter earlier In the day would mean nullification of tho treaty. On each of the votes most of the democratic supporters of the treaty voted against ratification. The first vote taken on this resolution stood 39 for to 5." against. On tho second vote taken after several hours of par liamentary wrangling In which the demo crats made vain efforts to win over some of the- republican group of mild rcserva tlonlsts, 41 senators voted in tho affirma tive and 31 in tho negative. The third vote was on a stralghtout ratification without reservations which got only 38 votes to 53 opposing It. Only one republican. Senator McCumber. of North Dakota, voted with the democrats in its support. Republican Leader Lodge declared to day's voting constituted a final decision on the peace treaty unless President Wil son circumvented the'- Senate rules by withdrawing It and then submitting It again to the Senate. In other quarters thero was some difference of opinion, but tho genernl sentiment seemed to bo that there was only n slender chance that the treaty would como up at the beginning of tho next session of Congress, beginning next month. Ono effect of the Senate's failure to ratify the treaty will bo the continuation of various war-time laws and regulations at least until the new sessions opens. Among these is tho war-time prohibition act. The resolution presented to-night '.. declare a state of peace will come up at the beginning of the new session and N expected to start another stubborn fight. Tho administration Is understood to be opposed to such a method of legally ending the war and In tho background Is a constitutional question as to whether Congressman do bo by a resolution not requiring the President's signature.

It was suggested to-night among demo cratic senators that President Wilson might bo asked during the recess to feel out tho other powers as to their attitude on reservations with the Idea of bringing the treaty to some sort of a ratification after Congress reassembles. Tho second vote on the majority's ratification resolution was made possible by tho mild rescrvatlonists who voted with the democrats to get the measure before the Senate and thus give an op portunity for any eleventh-hour com promise proposition. Once that had been accomplished, however, the mild group held out against all efforts of the demo crats to put In their substitute reserva tions, so that when the second vole was reached after several hours of sparring the situation virtually was unchanged. The resolution for ratification without reservations was put In by Senator Under wood, democrat, Alabama, after the sec ond defeat of the other measure. It wan held In order and voted upon without de bate, but when Senator Plttman, demo crat, Nevada, sought to get action on an other resolution containing Interprotlv reservations, the treaty consideration was cut short by a point of order by Republi can Loader Lodce. Vice-President Mar shall held that previous decisions of the Senate In overriding his rulings won operate to sustain the position taken 1" Senator Lodge. It was on u viva voce vote that the treaty after being before the Senate foi many weeks then was laid aside. On Senator Lodge's motion to take up legis lative business, no roll call was requested and tho vice-president declared It adopt' by acclamation. Senator Lodge, after adjournment to night, declared "the treaty is dead so far us this Senate Is concerned." Republican leaders said the Senate need not advise the President of Its ac tion nor return the treaty to him wit I formal notice. "The President may withdraw ljt when the Senate reconvenes," Senator Lodir said, "and, of course he can then resub mlt It In the next session. "But tho treaty Is dead In this Senate and they ki.led It as I told them the would If they voted against It." Senator Hitchcock said the treaty was not dead nnd tnat he presumed the Presi dent would resubmit it on December 1 although ho had no definite word from the President to that effect. Ho said he thought the republicans had worked them selves" "into a very nwkard position," , and had split themselves in tho Senate I and the country SE SUP ITS L SESSION 'Adjournment Taken After Six Months of Transacting Special Business hud left for hum-, however, before thi I The committee was tob1 that 'ho Pio dent had signed ths rcojutlon jvis rd yesterday, legalizing tho creation ot i equipment trust to pay the .gownim nt , for cars and locomotives bought tor tin railroad- dining Kder?l control ..r.d a'-..
