Paris, Feb. 22.��� Russia has not.
given any indication to France that
she is ready to take up the qifestion
of peace, and therefore thc authorities here do not feel qualified to discuss the St. Petersburg reports.The
reports are explained substantially
as follows: The peace sentiment has
lately been steadily augumenting
throughout Russia, particularly outside St, Petersburg and within recent days some of the influential po ���-
sonages in St. Petersburg have
-sought to impress responsible officials that the time has arrived to
take definite action. The Russian
foreign ollice has not shown -willingness to accept the peace view, however, though the reports are considered to be hopeful sign of tendency in the highest quarters towards
peace. The officials of the Japanese
legation incline to the view that reports were designed to sound official
sentiment of Japan. They express a
strong personal conviction that prior
to determining detailed terms it
will be indispeiisihle to settle the
main principle that tne terms will
insure peace in thc Far East, for
many years to come. The Japanese
position i.s said to be quite helinife
against arranging a peace which
would permit Russia to rehabitate
herself. The legation considers that
indemnity is equitable as Japan has
expended treble tire amount of the
cost of the China war in upholding
principles whicrr St. Petersburg reports indicate that Russia is now
disposed to recognize.

up over the 'phone from Tlie Ledger
oliice abd very ��� .kindly gave us the
following, information relative to
bills in which there is so much local
interest taken and which are at present under discussion, viz: the Haw-
thornthwait amendment to the eight-
hour act and known as tho Penalties
Clause, and the Smelter eight-hour
Of the former bill, the eight-hour'
law  goes  into  effect  in  June,  11)05,
and was  enacted a year ago.       The  j
amendment      to  which  coal  mining
companies take exception is the severe penalty attached to allowing any
eninloyee     to work more than eight
hours in any  twenty-four.    A minimum fine of $25 ami a maximum       of
$Ul(J  for each infraction  of  the. law
being  imposed.   This  line also is  to
apply to any miner working as  well
as to the employers.
It will be readily seen that if a
shift of 10(1 men worked a half hour
over time, or were more than sight
hours from bank to bank, a fine of
$-10,000 on the company might be imposed and the same individually on
the men.
This clause,  or amendment, we a,re
informed,      is the one to which  the
companies   taue   exceotion,audit   was
last  evening  defeated   in  committee.
In other words, it is killed.
The     Ruielter bill,  which provides
that no  company shall allow an employee to work more than eight hours
Mr. Williams
-says the vote may be close.    Other
information leads us to believe that
thc bill  will be overwhelmingly    defeated.      The Ladysmith delegation,
consisting of Mayor  Cohurn,   Alder^.
man Haworth,  Mr. Allan, secretary,
of the Board of Trade,  and  George
Han nay,   ��� secretary ��� of the Socialist
local, had a very pleasant interview
with the   Nanaimo     and Newcastle
members, and the best of feeling prevailed.     Mayor  Co',urn is returning
home today, while the balance of the
committee will remain over.
Jvlri  Williams states that the   Attorney-General,   Mr. Melnnes,       and
others state that the bill to come into effect  in June carries sulhcient in
the  way  of penalties  without  being
amended.      There  may   be,   Mr.   Williams states, eii'orts made to repeal
the entire act.
At     any rate, conditions as they
now apparently arc will not affect us
Ioctilly,      as   was   feared   yesterday
might become the case.
