Washington, May U.?Some of Mi
Blaine's friends say that he hasabout madi
up his mind to listen to the pleadings o
certain Maine Republicans and yield hi;
own inclinations to their wishes. That it
the way they put it. Stripped of politica
rhetoric, it is almost ollicially announce*
that Blaine intends to go back'tothe Housi
of Representatives. The only question tha
he has at all considered this winter ii
reference to political action has been thai
of health. He has. however, gone througl
n trying winter without any severe recut
rence of tfie rheumatic goui which assum
ed such a serious form last year,and he is in
elined to think that he has this enemy in
subjection. Blaine is known to have great
lv wished that he could have been on th>
tloor of the House this winter. He ha
spoken of the utter lack of leadership then
and oi the splendid opportunity for it. 11
Bays that the Republicans have throwi
away chance after chance of doing tint
which would greatly strengthen the party
and he has used, by all accounts, prvti
vigorous Anglo-Saxon in his comments oi
the course the party has taken under it
many-headed leadership. Hut great a
have been, in his view, these opportunity
those that will open to the Uepublieaus ii
the lower House in the Forty-eight
Congress he believes will be great
er. The session will be that whic
will precede the Presidential eonvemio
and election of 1884. The opportunity fo
a leader of experience, Blaine foresees, wi
be great Besides he has said that he nevi
for one day has been out of the House tlui
he did not have a yearning to be bae
there. Blaine believes, it is said, that thei
is too much taxation, and the next can
paign may be on that issue. With a sir
nlus rolling up towards two hundred mi
lions, and at the same time the nrices <
provisions ami the necessaries of life it
creasing, lUaine thinks that the Kepublica
party in making a great mistake in not cui
tiug down taxation. The failure to do th
may give the next House to the Democrat

3 Dublin, May 1).?At tho inquest on the
|l bodies of Cavendish and Burkes medical
(t' evidence was Kiveu to the effect that the
it victims had apparently been stabbed ?im'
ultaneously from before and behind with
long bowie knives.
,J All the Dublin newspapers are in mourn?
fog.
1 It is stated the police are hopeful of cap?
turing the assassins. They received evij
dence which will enable them to identify
- the murderers. It is also said that the car
in which they escaped has been trace'd to
Loixlip, ten miles northwest of Dublin,
h where the men alighted to procure liquor,
il Charles Moore, arrested at Maynook on
- suspicion of beixjf one oI the assassins, has

j against him ia weak.
lieorgo Otto Trevilyan'was appointed
- Chief Secretary lor Irolauil. Immediately
* upon bis acceptance of office a special poj
1 iceman was placed on duty before his
. residence.
I An important arrest has jant been made
* of the ihuu believed to be the carman who
I drove the assassins. lie cannot give an
account of himself. Three more arrests
were made iu Kildare.
The illuminations in honor of the release
B of the suspects have been abandoned.
; Up to the :'?lnt of March last, 872 "Sua-1
] poets" were arrested iu Jreland; many have
' been liberated,
A man has been arrested at Limerick, 0*1
_ .suspicion of being one of the assassins. He
[ bought a suit of clothes, and while rem^v]
ing the old oues blood stains were observed
* on his shirt and trousers. Two men,named
Bailey and Annan, were arrested while
loitering in Phoenix park; the former had
a dagger sheath on his person.
Cloonan, supposed to be the carman
[ who drove the assassins, has been remanded
fur further inquiry.
' Crowd at station hooted at Moore on his
arrival in Dublin. Moore was brught before
the police court to-day, but as the police
oflered no evidence and as his account
of his movements was considered sutisfuctory,
ho was discharged. The Limerick
prisoner and Mailey and Annan were also
discharged. The police still think they
have a clue.
The following additional information
j with regard to the assassination lias come
, to light: Two bicycle riders, in the employ
ment of the railway company, state that
they passed the spot where the murders
were committed. They saw the assasins
5 strike their victim# unci hmml T.nrrl fWon.
i dish cry out, "Ah, you villain," to his as5
sailant, who then stabbed ^ him again.
) l.ortl Frederick fell over against the bicy!
cle of one of the young men, who was
coming to his assistance, but the murderers.
with bloody knives, made towards him
and both bicyclists thereupon got.
i away as fast as possible. They saw a car
oei the road awaiting the murderers; the
, driver's back was turned. They saw a man
stab Cavendish in the back, as he lay on
the ground.
An Irishman, from America, has been ari
rested at Castlu Bellingham. Two other
prisoners are under custodv at Monaghun.
The body of Burke was buried in lilasneven
cemetery to-day. Crowds of people
lined the streets. Nearly all the shops were
closed and mourning was worn by many
I people.
A<lvIcon from London.
London, May l).?Miss Annie Parncll, in
her letter to the Timet, says she doubts that
1 the policy is conciliation when families in
f Clare whom Foster turned out are living
! in hovels, and GOO people in one county
, alone are liable to death by cold, It being
illegal to help them. She concludes by
saying if there arc any persons surprised
f that the assassin's arm is not idle, they
must not forget that there is such a thing
i as human natureamong Irishmen.
London society, beginning with the
Queen, who sent a telegram of condolence
to the family of Ixml Cavendish, has
made a demonstration of sympathy as rei
nuirkahle as that which occurred on the
death of President Garfield.
i The Timet, in a leading article, says:
Kven if it he true that the murder of
i Cavendish and Uurkc was done by
American-Irish desperadoes, wo must not
1 forget that Parnell has boasted of cousolidating
an alliance .between the Irish of
America and those at home. We are un
able to accept the plea that the men who
have pursed the Land Leaguer's course are
- divested of all responsibility for the crime
> they now denounce.
'lhe Time* further says of the Pamellite
members of Parliament: "It is morallv
impossible to enter into any understanding
with those who denounce an outrage
' for the fir*t time when they feel that it
' yripples their operations. Though they

John W. Guiteau of her liberty, and says hi?
does not know of her whereabouts,* and
therefore he could not produce her in court.
Mr. Townsend then made application t<>
have the return traversed and read the
atlidavitof Scoville, in which the latter still
dee,lares himself of the belief that bis wife
is in John W. Guiteairs custody.
Scoville was called and testilied to the
wearing efl'ect of the trial on his wife, to
her strange actions, her talk of her brother's
case, and to her saying to thfr vitness
that she thought he had ceased to care for
her. Her leaving home and coming to this
city, and certain other facts given jn
traverse to the return were also elicited in
the testimony. The witness said he saw .1.
W. Guiteau "in the Aqtor house, and the
latter said he heard witmsswas going to
put Mrs. Scoville in a lunatic asylum, and
that he (Guiteau) would resist all further
attempts to prove insanity in the Guiteau
family.
It appears that Scoville visited the police
headquarters, yesterday, to obtaiu the aid
oi uic police in the search for his wife, lie
declared that she was restrained of her liberty
by her brother, against whom bo
threatened legal nroeeedings. Two detectives
were placed on the case, but up to a
late hour this afternoon, bad jiot found
Mrs. Scoville.
