Milan, Sept. 23.—George Chaves, the Peruvian aviator,
flew from Brieg, Switzerland, over Simplon Pass successfully
today, but in alighting at Domodossola, Italy, a sudden gust of
wind overturned his machine and the aviator suffered a broken
thigh and leg and his machine was demolished.
Chavez made a wonderful flight over the mountains and
came down gracefully on the Italian side, and was within thirty
feet of the earth when the accident happened which deprived
him of the $20,000 prize offered for the succesesful accom
