Fore Ian Correspond# see of Tkt 8 Uf. LONDON, August 1. 1910. The Jewish Chronicle says that the government of western Australia Is con sidering a business proposal far the pur chase of an extensive area ift that state oh which to settle a minion Russian Jews. , This Is aa astonishing statement, con sidering that the total population of western Australia at the last census. In 1001, was only 1M.134. tf anything like a million Russian Jews were dumped down in western Australia they would enormously outnumber the reet of the population, and the country would prac tically become a Russian colony with alien language and customs. It 10 dif ficult to believe that the English-speaking western Australians can have contem plated so momentous a change. There are more than fcOOO.OOO Jews in the Rus sian empire. Oreat progress is being made all along the line of the Western Maryland railway extension, elghty-oae miles, between Cum berland and Connellsvlllo. Prom the rate of advanoe the contractors will finish be tween Confluence and Oonaellsville by next April. TAKE FATHER'S ADVICE, ACQUIRE BIG FORTUNE Sons of Connecticut Farmer Begin With $2,800; Ac cumulate $25,000,000. BRIDGEPORT, Conn., August 16.?A little over fifty years ago a farmer named Miller, living near Mlddletown, Conn., called In hi* four sons?Darius, Frank, Nathan G. and Charles?read them a lec ture on the use and abuse of money, tave them $700 apiece, and told them to to out in the world and hustle. Darius, the eldest, waa not thirty then, the youngest was scarcely twenty. They scattered and worked, schemed and thrived, and yesterday when they met to gether in the home of Frank to celebrate the golden wedding of Darius and his wife they told how they had multiplied that $2,800 almost ten thousand fold. The estimated wealth of the brothers today is $35,000,000. Their activities range from dry goods to railroads, from real estate to electrlo lighting. None of the Miller boys was a failure. Aggregate, of 370 Year*. The ages of the Miller "boys" and their sister, Mrs. Kate Strickland of Bridge port, total 31? years, ranging from sixty five to eighty-one, but their activities are ceaseless and they are all in the best of health. The story reads like one from the "Arabian Nights." The four Aladdlns apparently had but to rub their lamps to tain powder and wealth, and through out the story the figure 700 seems to dom inate, for away back in 1630 the town of ; Middletown agreed to pay their ances tor, Thomas Miller, $700 for establishing a mill there. The payment was never made, but the family still holds the claim for the sum with the compound Interest for 200 years. When the boya left the old farm, Darius went to New Britain, where he put his tooney into a dry goods business that prospered so rapidly that he la now one of the wealthiest men In the state, own ing a big department store and having other large interests besides. Nathan G., the second son, went to New York to seek his fortune. He de I eloped a talent for high finance, made a ortune on the stock market, bought a railroad which he solid at an immense profit, organised a steamboat company, backed Tnoma* Edison in his inventions and now possesses millions. Controls Largo Interests. Charles Miller went to Waterbury to Invest his $700, and accumulated money ** ftst that last January ho astounded his fellow cltlsena by turning over to his clerks the Immense establishment of Mttlor A Peck. Ho holda a great quantity of ml estate, owns the Randolph * Clowes Company and controls many in dustrial concerns. Frank Ml Her started fits business ca reer In Bridgeport, studied the lumber market and now owns vast tracts of pine timber in the south, controls a desen big Nissis-Bsi."""?c,ty To celebrate the reunion of the broth ers and sister a group photograph was taken?the first photograph for which Darius Miller had posed since he left the farm more than a half century ago. The brothers recounted their business triumphs modestly. Throughout their struggles for fortune they had kept in touch with one another, and on many oc casions one l^s helped another through some financial pinch so that the money power grew through the united strength of the individual fortunes.

There are three principal prize*: first, a gold medal; second, a sil ver medal, and third, a bronze medal. Others were distributed in accord with the new percentage system. Massachusetts Team Leads. It was late yesterday afternon when J the first stage of the regimental match was finished at 2*X> yards. The Massa chusetts team led, with a total of 272 points. The team from the 1st District of Columbia Infantry shot well, and the scores of fhe men follow: First Lieut. Alderman. 47; First IJeut. Coldwell. 43; First Lieut. Powers. 42: Private Clauser. 42: Capt. Cookson, 43; Sergt. Brown, 4?>; total. 263. The scores of the 2d Infantry were: Capt. Heidenreich. 44; Corporal Forsythe, 42; Private Oroome, 4.*?; First IJeut. Clausell, 43; First I.icut Holt, 48; Sergt. Major Cole. 37; total. 2T.9. Something happened to the sight on the rifle of Sergt. Maj. Cole and he had a "miss"' toward the end of his string. IJeut. Col. James E. Bell shot late yes terday afternoon in the matca for state secretaries. He had not fired a shot on the 000-vard range, yet he rininshed in second place, with a total of 4f, out of a possible &<?. Maj. Fort of the Maryland team won the matcli. with a total of 4* points, only one more than the score of Lieut. Col. Bell. District Men Do Well. The Wimbledon match was won yester day by Capt. Emerson of Ohio, with a total of 90 points out of a possible at 1,000 yards. The scores of the men from the District of Columbia were as follows: Lieut. Alderman, 95; Lieut. Clausell, 94; Sergt.

Briggs of the United States Infantry, was bulletined as first, although there were 71 men who each had a possible of points. Capt. Bryan was bulletined as No. 7. with :? points.; Lieut. Alderman, 3T?- Lieut. Holt. 35. Sergt. Maj. Cole, 34, and Private Fehr. 33 points. Much surprise had been expressed at the exceptionally good work of the Dis trict of Columbia team. The men on'y arrived here Sunday afternoon and, with out having had an opportunity to get acquainted with the conditions on the range, entered the matches, and made some first class scores. It Is expected the team will distinguish itself before the close of the tournament. Are Comfortable in Camp. In the two days that the riflemen from the District of Columbia have been here wonders have been accomplished in the way of fixing up their quarters. All of the men on the rifle team are old and ex perienced campers. They know exactly what is required to make themselves com fortable, and they all know how to utilize anything that may be available In the camp, for there is always something to he had for the man who will go out and forage for it. Capt. W. \V. Cookson gave an example of foraging before the members of the District team had been in their street an hour Sunday afternoon. He went out scouting and In a few minutes returned with an immense packing box. Breaking up the big box Capt. Cookson improvised a dressef, a clothes rack, and, having plenty of material left after contributing ; to his comfort in the Interior of his tent, ' he proceeded to make a porch in front of his domicile?the only one In the entire camp?which is the envy of every vis itor who drops Into the District of Co lumbia quarters. If the Jovial captain makes application for a patent for his front porch it will doubtless be granted. On the way to Camp Perry Sunday the quartermaster of the team, Capt. Harry E Burton, had a strenuous time counting up his party occasionally. Every time there was a change in conductors, and this happened several times en route, it would be necessary for a count of the twenty in the party to be made to verify the ticket. This was an easy task as long as the aggregation was in a car, as happened from Washington as far as Cleveland, but after that it gave Capt. Burton something to do to accompany the conductor through several cars and point out the members of the party from the District of Columbia. Near to Mess Hall. The District of Columbia team is well located as regards quarters. The team has tents In the ninth row back from | the firing line. It is about the same dis tance from the big concrete mess hall, so I that the riflemen do more walking be tween the different firing points, or ranges, than they do in going to the firing line or to their meals. Quartered In the i same end of the street are two men from the New Jersey team, Lieut. Col. W. A. Tewes, and Maj. William B. Martin, both excellent shots, who came here a week I ago. The New Jersey team will arrive I Thursday. The big concrete mess hall Is an instl i tutjon. This year it is managed under a dual system of serving meals. On one aide of the hall a regular meal is served three times dally and at a uniform cost of 30 cents a meal. On the other side I there is a "pay-as-you-enter" department. The hungry soldier walks Into a screened lane selects his knife, fork, spoon, etc., places them on a waiter, and then seas for what he wants.
