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. ( Signed ) , JACOB R. SIUMIBUK. WAHUINOTOH , May 20 , 1882. CAPITA ! . NOTES.

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. CONGRESS National Awociated Press. HOUSE PROCEEDINGS.

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.

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.
