Peruvian Makes Trip Frcm Switz

After Completing Dangerous Part of
Trip, Gust of Wind Overturns Ma
chine Thirty Feet From Gound and
Aviator Is Buried " Wreckage.
American Fails In Trial.
Domodossola, Italy, Sept. 24. To
George Chavez, the Peruvian aviator,
belongs the honor of being the
to fly across the Alps.
The daring feat was accomplished
In an attempt to win the prize of $20,
000 offered by the Italian Aviation so
ciety of Milan, for a flight from
Switzerland, to Milan.
Chavez, however, was unable to
complete the trip, having sustained
painful injuries when he alighted hero.
His machine was overturned and he
was buried in the wreckage. At the
hospital to which he was removed the
phvsieians found that both of the avl
ator's legs were broken and that the
left thigh was fractured. Other parts
of the body revealed bad contusions
The general condition of the air man
however, is not considered grave.
Weather Is Excellent.
iThe weather for the competition
wns excel ent. cnavez goi away ai
29 o'clock and rose to a height estv
mated to be nearly 7.000 feet. He
passed over the mountain tops, clear
ing the summit of Simplon pass at
1:46. At that time his monoplane
was moving as steadily as a railroad
After negotiating Simplon pass,
Chavez followed the route over Gondo
gorge, one of the grandest and at the
same time one of the most savage of
the Alps. He reached there at 2:11
As the airman was seen slowly de
scending a great crowd gathered. Slow
and gracefully he neared the surface
and was about thirty feet above the
ground, when a gust of wind caught
and overturned the monoplane. It fell
heavily, carrying the aviator beneath
It. Chavez was pinned under the
motor and painfully hurt. He had
fainted on striking the ground and
was bleeding profusely when released
from the wreckage. The machine
was ruined.
But for the mishap in alighting
there la little doubt that he would have
successfully continued to the goal, a
the remainder of the course presents,
comparatively little difficulty.
There Is a general regret that fate,
which permitted him to make what
has been described as the most reck
less flight ever attempted, should have
dealt less kindly with him when he
had reached the zone of easy flying
and the prize was In sight
Weymann Turns Back.
The American aviator, Weymann.
also attempted the flight, leaving the
tableland at Brig at 1 o'clock. He de
scended after being In the air four
minutes. Two hours later he made an
other attempt to cross the Alps, but
was unable to reach the summit of
Simplon and turned hnck to Brig, land
ing twenty-seven minutes from the
time that he started.
With the exception of Chavez and
Weymnn, the aviators abandoned the
competition. The time limit ot the
contest expires todav.

Omaha, Sept. 24. Railroad meu
representing all of the seven railroads
of Nebraska met at tho Burlington

it developed that tho railroads are be

The greatest argument that tho
roads now being heard In Chicago

On the other hand, If a road de
clared itself to be In possession of a
hugo amount of property as they must
have to make such a large expense
bill the taxes on this property de
clared will be just so much greater
and oil the profits will go In this way.
Thus they stnnd; If a largo amount
Is declared the taxes are heavy, If a
