EKWAED FOR BL1INE.
, May 21. Jacob H.
Bhipherd .furnishes the folio wing for
publication :
To THE PUBLIC : Five dollars re
ward , and positively no awkward
questions asked anybody , will bo
paid for the return to the undersigned
of ono James G. Blaine , who has been
missing in these parts since my arrival
hero on or about Monday evening the
10th. Twice the amount of this re
ward will bo paid for the publication
of this advertisement in The Now
York Tribune. "Wheii last seen Blaine
was making across the country s. aw. ,
at an approximate rate of 10 | miles
per hour , said to bo the boat time
ever made by a npn-profeaaional. The
finder on returning him will bo al
lowed to toke him away again as soon as
Blaine'a clothes have been starched , as
no ouo known to the undersigned has
any further use for him. Blaiue ran
away , as it now appears , carrying off
one of the standing committees of
congress concealed somewhere about
his capacious pockets and somewhat
thinly diaguiaod , it is said , as white
mice nestling under his new and
handsome-tiitting Prince Albert coat.
For photographs aud minute descrip
tion of this coat and intellectual paler
of Elaine's large and effective counte
nance , application may be filed at my
office. The New York Tribune , intending -
tending to find Mr. Blaine and his
committee , may communicate with
the bereaved clerk of the committee ,
with wfcich official I will myself deposit
the promised reward in case the
house of representatives should ref se
the "hflccssary appropriation , as I am
advised they will , on the ground that
it can replace the last committee with
a better one for a gr < : at deal less
money. I don't propose any issue
with the house on this or any other
occasion , but I have been living with
the committee for throe months post
and I like it and want it back. I am
\ not going to be mean about
the reward , which will posi
tively bo paid without rebate
on delivery of the advertised pro
perty. The Peruvian company having
discovered that the committee which
has BO auddfnly disappeared , has
boon all the while a part of tlio pri
vate managerio of lilaino , has for
bidden me to offer more than the sum
named for its return , nnd begs to give
notice hereby , that it will resume
business at the old stand and will not
hereafter confide business secrets to
any committee of congiess. In this
resolution it relies upon the support of
every sister corporation in the country.
In answer to requests already received
ceived from nearly every state in the
union , I am considering the expedi
ency of continuing the narrative .sud
denly interrupted by the , flight of Mr ,
Blaine and hia committee in some
other place than the now deserted
oommiteo room. The necessary data
is all ready , and if the public wants
facts and documents , I am rather in
clined not to refuse.

of the subject. An effort to exempt
Bherman and Sheridan from compul

some work is also being done co pro-

LIVELY TIMES THE COMING fVEBK.
WASHINGTON , May 21. It is ex
pected that the dead lock in the house
will take nearly all week. Each party
is rather anxious for a fight , as it is a
consideration necessary to "letter up"
voters throughout the country in
anticipation of congressional elections ,
and each side believes it will make a
good point for itself in the fight , bo
the result whatever it may. In the
votes on Saturday moat of the groon-
backers and Mahono moa voted with
the republicans. With all the republi
cans and those voting with thorn in
their soots they would have ten more
than a quorum and bo able to go on
with business , even though the
democrats retused to vote. To
got tull attendance , or one
sufficiently near that to make
a quorum of republicans will bo very
difficult. Usually there are from
thirty to fifty members absent , some
by permission and aorno without leave.
Recently the republicans have been
trying to keep their members hero and
to get those back who had been ab
sent , and the fact that 119 answered
to their names on Saturday shows
they have been very nncceaaful. Of
the thirty-six absent not onu-lulf had
"leave , " many havinu left the city
without asking permission. Calkins ,
chairman pi the election committee ,
waa on Friday and Saturday industri
ously telegraphing absentees to
return. Some of them came
in this morning , and othera
are expected to-morrawv , It is proba
ble , however , that a quorum will ar
rive before the last half of the week.
Even if the quorum ahould arrive , it
is probable that ono or more of the
members would bo too ill to attend , as
is nlmost always the case. It Is likely ,
however , the Pacific cise may be
heard by Thursday. 'I his done , the
democrats will fight it at every step ,
and it ia believed by many the case
now in hand will not bo out of the
wav before June first. . There will
be Iwo or three more ctso ready when
this ia out of the way , and several
others are awaiting action of the
committee.

LKAUVILLR , May 1'J. Fire broke
out at 3:50 : this morning in the roar
of Fronklo it Butler's storo. No
wind. Burned the Windaor , Acade
my of Muaic and trn houses. Loss
estimated at $500,000. Inauranco
principally in fnroign cotnpaniPB.
When the fire broke out there WM
the most fearful panic that has over
occurred in Luadvillo. Mr. Kendrick ,
the proprietor of the Windsor , waa
among the first to bo aroused , and as
soon as he nalizod thn awful position
in whick hia property had been placed
ho lost no time to do all in his power
to save the guotti of the homo. Ho
rushed frantically from hall to hall ,
knocking in the doors and shouting ,
"Firo ! " giviug all a chance to escape.
Mon and women rained from the
rooms , and as soon as they got out
met others terrified at the position ia
which they wcro placed. The Hotel
Windsor waa ono of the oldest hoatol-
ries in the city , and was constructed
in the flimsy manner that formerly
was ao prevalent in this camp. The
walla > were but poor partitions of
green lumber , over which ciuvas waa
stretched , and afforded no protection
except from eight.
FRANTIC ! MEN AND WOMEN
met in the hall , nnd were almost para
lyzed by amoko uud flames. They
groped about in every direction until
they found some means of exit , and
then lost no time in accomplishing
their escape , no matter how perilous.
Representatives of both BCXOB wcro
seen coming from the hotel door but
thinly clad , bearing their valuables ,
and clothing in hand in order to got
out nlivo. Others , lost fortunata in
knowledge , of the intricacies i\t the
hall , dnahed for windowa and tl row
themselves tv out. Hardly a man or
woman thus loft the houap who to-day
ia not suffering from injuries bruinca ,
burns or sprains. Some of the nioro
timid managed to reach the front ,
where fire ladders wore thrown up for
their escape. Style , method or ap
pearance was not thought of. Moa
rolled down sidewise , headlong and
foot first. There were the following

Aa soon as the embers cooled auf-
ficently to enable the work to bo car
ried on Etiarch waa begun for the
bodies of the victims. The first dji >
onvery wan made by Jack Horner arid
Jack Broguu , two inombora of the
ILirrlson hooka , who weru working
about the Bamo apot. They suddenly
came on the form of a human being ,
with fiico turned down. Sheets were
brought and the charred remains of
the unfortunate were carried by the
fireman to the morgue. It waa dia-
covered there that ill trace of identity
had been lost , for all that remained of
the head uiid facfl were a few iraina.
HKAKOUINO KOR TUB DEAD ,
The flrismuii returned to the ground
and continued their disagreeable
duties. They delved the whole morn
ing in the debris and patiently sub
mitted to the terrible odors arising
from the burned aud wet material ,
that gave forth the most frightful
stenches at timeB. At noon the fire
boys were called off , and the city
placed on duty the chain gang who
worked till dark , turning the debris
upside down. Thia doleful work waa
witnessed by Bovorul thouaand who
visited the acono during the day.
ARTHUR BALLOU.
In the condition in which the un
fortunate victim wan found it is al
moat Imposdible to discover hia ident
ity , but circumatancea point to the
fact that tlm charred and unreoognlza-
blu remains are all that ia left of Mr.
Arthur Ballon. The gentlemen 'in
whoio company Ballon had been
Thursday night uUto that ho waa per-
footly aobor when ho retired , and they
had not been able to induce
him to tnko a glaaa of beer /or
weeks , The facts point to bnt one
idea ; it waa whllo ondeavring to as
sist a weak woman from a perilous
position that Arthur Ballou gave y
bis life. A
