I'll It. A li k:i. I'M I A, Aug. 'ZS Benjamin (lar
rclt Itudgers was more confident than ever
today that he had seen l'reller after hi) sup
posed murder, The Interview published
yesterday he said, was substantially cor
rect, although the statement was not meant
for publication, "I have no desire lor news
juprr nolnrlety," he said, "and one reason
why I have said nothing about my meet
ing with Prellcr Is that I was rather doubt
Inl for a while whether it was really he
that I met in My last. When I first
reail of bis supiiosed murder I bicame Inter
ested, became, although our inqjalnlance wni
short, I raiber took a fancy lo the man. I
believed at the time that ho had really been
muriiereil tiy Maxwell, and the latter s sud
den Ibgbt strengthened my belief, even after
my meitlng with him in the pool room on
Snii'iim slrect on tho 1 Ith day ol last May,
I thought that I might be mistaken. Since
Maxwell's return from Australia I am posl
lite I was not tnitaken, and that the man I
met in the pool room was really l'reller.
This morning when I went down town I met
a Iricnd who culled my ntteniion to the inter
view. "'I wa3lu the Continental that day,' be
said, Mind saw you paying billiards with that
gentleman. I watched the game very closely,
and took particular note ot your opponent's
lure. It was one that a man would remember.
W ben 1 saw the picture of l'reller published
in the papers alter the supposul murder, and
learned that hn had been In Philidelphla, I
immediately connected the niclureil face with
the man I taw in your company. His lea
lures were, in consequence, iudellibly Im
pre.'fed upon my mind. Some time In May,
I think abc lit the middle of Ibo
mouth, I was walking down Arch
street, and met a man between Illghth and
Ninth streets who certainly looked and walk
ed like the man I taw you playing bi'lurds
with In the Continental hotil. So convincid
was I that I turned and took a second look at
him. Ho had shaved off his moustache, but
I am positive it. was the man I sa.v in vour
company iu the Continental hotel biliinrd

I saw Arthur 0. or C. Arthur l'reller

Wammmitiin, Aug. 28. Details of the de
struction in Canton and vicinity by the greit
rain storm there have been received by pri
vate parties in this city. The llood 'was the
mo3t serious which has visited Canton in
thirty years. More than ten thou
sand persons lost their liies. and a far
greater number are left in n starving
condition. llntlre villages were engulfed,
iif.it the rlca and silk crops were nlmost
ruined. Many ot the streets ol Canton
were flooded fur oer a week. At Si .VI citv
the water broke through the city wall. It is
reportid that several thousand people were
drowned iu that place. The embankments of
the river were broken in many places and the
waters swept across Ihe surrounding country,
carrying everything belore iti A foreigner,
who was an lye witness of the scenes ol the
devastation, reports that one night the boat
ho occupied anchored near a bamboo grove.
By morning the water had riaen lo the top
ol the bamboos. At other points it rose as
high as forty feet during the night. The
inhabitants lied from the villages
and camped on the hillsides. At Kun In, a
inarki t plate .ituated near an embankment ol
one of the streams connected with the nier
whii h brings water from tho north and west
rivers, the majority of the Inhabitants were
drowned by the water breaking through the
embiukment. Some en-aped to a jiiece ol
rising ground in the neighborhood, but the
water continued to rise and gradually over
toiled the eleialion, drowning those who
et.wd on it.
Seventeen Chinese graduates in Canton
blaring ot the distress and sulfering preva
lent iu their uatho ullages, took jiaseago
on a ooat Willi a view to proceeding
home to render what assistance they
could. On tho way the boat was
capsized, and all who were in it were
drownid. Iu some places jiarents tied their
children on the high branches of trees, while
they instituted measures for their general
sifety. The trees were washed up by the
roots, and the heartrending cries of the chil-
ren were silenced in the iiircinir water. The
body ot u brida dressed In her bridal robes
was found lloalinir in the rivir at Canton. A
large tub was also seen. It was picked up
and found to contain a boy and a girl. With
them was a jiajier stating their names, the dav

A far as gale receipts and crowds were
concerned the fair pinned out a gtcat deal
better yesterday afternoon and this morning.
The country pmple turned out In full force
and the grounds wero jammed with buggies
nun ininnges 01 asHeoris, anil noils or peo
ple all togged out In their holldsv attire.
The cool, pleasant weather nnd total' absence
ol dun caused a great many peojde from tho
city to drive out rather to see the crowd
tban anything else. They were
certainly rejiald for their trouble for
me people exemplified the typlcnl crowd
at a county fair. Whole lamllics, packed In
one carriage, rintic lasiies in bright calico
and cambric, the horny-listed son of the'soll
In bis new hoots and store clothes, the coun

brood of nut-brown children; all were there,
taking In with wide-open eyes everything
frum the prize punpkin to the threshing ma
chine. The fakirs and skln-gatuesiers con
tinued their thievlmr businesa and rnunirr
boys without number were ojieoly robbed at
the wheels of fortune and other contrivances.
About .1 o'ebek the crowd began to drill to
ward tin- track and ere long Ihe grand stand
was filled to ita fullest capacity while the fence
on cither side of the track was lined with jir-

in the judges' stand again rendered sweet

busy all morning making their awards, and

J. (i. Wilson, one of the leading horsemen
at the lair, returned from Urbana early this
morning and was asked to show his check at
the gate. As he has lie-en on the grounds all
summer he had none and a dispute followed
between himself and II. A. Itoush, the gate
keeper. Itoush called up Marshal Smiths nnd
llablett who quelled the rarkel aud walked
uu Into the grounds with Wilson. About
hall an hour later he again came around to
the gate and another quarrel between himself
and Mouth ensued. A crowd soon col
lecled and Special Policemen Smith, Bablett,
Foley, Balks lale, and Thompon all came to
the rescue. Wilson retreated out of the gate
and drew-a knife, vowing that he would do
them up it they touched him. He also pro
vided himself with a handful of boulders fur
Ihe same purpose. The police closed iu on
him, however, aud succeeded iu arresting
him, Ile was released on bail.

When the war of the rela-llion broke out,
Craig organized a eomjinny of free colored
men for service In the 0 nfederale army.
He served well during the war and was cul

The lecture of Dr. Payne, discussed in the
evening, considered the question of the
training of leacheis. The text books, ajqia
ratus, aud even the intellectual
qualifications ot teachers are only
the machinery of Ic.chlnir. Tho nersnnalliir
of Ihe teacher, active, possessing tact as well
as talent, having clear conceptions of how he

mental powers, is the real forco which utilizes
the cajiabilitits of the machinery. Too many
teacners acl upon the idea that a
comiieteut know ledge or the si iences to
be taught Is the teal essential tu success in tl e
proles-Ion, This view, however, ignores the
tact that such a knowledge Is a part ot the
preparation ol a candidate for every other
calling as well as teaching. The lawyer oh
tains this part ot cducation.and the physician
and the architect, but also the must become
fitted for their proposed vocation by a sjiecial
training peculiar to the particular vocation'
ho the teacher must have a sjiecial training
lor his jio.ition in addition to the mere know,
ledge he lias stored away in his memory
