MASTER OF THE ALPS
DIES OF HIS INJURIES
GEO. CHATEZ, HERO OF TRANS
NONTANE FLIGHT, SUCCUMBS.
Overturned and Crushed Within Fifty
Miles of Goal, Daring Airman
Has Lost Life.
Domodossola, Italy, Sept. 27.
George Chavez, aged 25, the Peruvian
aviator who was injured in alighting
after his flight over the Alps Friday,
died at 2.25 o'clock this afternoon.
George Chavez, the young aviator
who on Friday sprang into interna
tional prominence when he made his
thrilling aeroplane flight over the
threatening gorges and towering
peaks of the Alps, was born in Paris
in 1887. He secured his aviator's li
cense from the Aero club February 19
of this year. Chavez, though he as
tounded the world by a flight which
had been esteemed barely short of the
impossible, failed to reach Milan, the
goal, the attainment of which would
have meant the winning of a prize of
$20,000 offered by the Italian Avia
He had passed in safety the dan
gerous part of his journey and was
descending at Domodossola, on the
Italian side of the Alps, with only 50
safe and easy miles between him and
his goal, when his monoplane, caught
by a gust of wind, turned over and
bore him to earth beneath its wreck
At first it was thought that the
daring airman was not seriously in
jured, but later it was found that he
had sustained internal injuries which
In his wonderful flight from Brief,
Switzerland, to Domodossola, the
young Peruvian covered in 40 min
utes the distance which took Napol
eon's cohorts a fbll fortnight to cross.
Incidentally, in' surmounting the
great natural fortification of Italy,
the aviator may have broken his own
height record, which had stood against
the world up to that itme. Some of
the spectators said that after crossing
the Simplon pass he took the short
cut over the Monoseera pass, 8,000 feet
above the sea level, and thus may
have broken his record of 8,271 feet.
DEAS KICKED OUT.
J. W. Tolbert to Head Republican
Party of State-Hours of
Columbia State, 27th.
Following hours of haranguing and
exhortations, the Republican State
convention yesterday elected 3. W.
Tolbert chairman and J. R. Levy, who
is a negro, vice chairman. The ac
tion of the convention was an over
throw of E. H. Deas, a negro, who has
held the chairmanship for several
years. There were about 90 delegates
present, and about 87 of these were
negroes. There was an entire ab
sence of prominent Republican lead
ers. The matter of congressional
candidates will be left to the respec
Declaring that he has been robbed
of the vice chairmanship by a mis
count in the votes, T. L. Grant, of
Charleston, a negro Republican, left
the convention hall, saying that they
would hear from him later. The vote
for Grant 'as announced by the tellers
was 44. The vote for Levy was 46.
Grant contended that he received 51
votes. There were four candidates
for the office of chairman-R. H.
Richardson, J. W. Tolbert, J. R. Levy
and C. M. English. All of these, ex
cept Tolbert, are negroes. Tolbert re
ceived 51 votes; Richardson 4; Eng
lish 11, and-Levy 21 for the chairman
On the surface of the convention
there appeared a bitter dislike for the
administration of President Taft. Sev
eral of the speakers, when there was
not an election on, tried to make
speekes about "reclaiming" and puri
fying the personnel of the party, but
these words were drowned in the din
of the floor leaders who tried to swing
the more reticent delegates from side
to side. There were no fights this
Following his withdrawal from thc
convention and his bitter denunciation
of the Republican party in this State,
T. L. Grant issued the following state
ment in which he charged that he was
robbed of the vice chairmanship: "As
county chairman of the Republicans of
Charleston, I headed the delegation
from that county. I came for the sole
purpose, if possible, to assist in the
reorganization tnd to change the
methods so generally used in Repub
Were Onion Skins Used?i
"Early in the day and just after
the assembling of the convention, T
pointed out the danger of unfair meth
ods, and advised sensible action if they
toped to accomplish anything or re
ceive consideration at the hands of
the national organization. Judge of
my surprise and disgust, when after
J. W. Tolbert was elected State chair
man and I was placed in nomination
for vice-chairman with J. R Levy as
the other candidate, I was actually
robber after having received 51 votes
to Levy's 37. The chairman of the con
vention, R. H. Richardson, ignoring
the tally kept by the tellers, simply
took the account kept by W. T. Au
dres and outrageously declared that
Levy had received 44, while I had re
efived only 42.
"This robbery was so palpably and
disgracefully unjust, I determined that
it was impossible for me to remain in
this body which lacked any or tbe
principles of honor and justice. and I
so expressed myself and left the hall
i which the convention was held. I
would, in conclusion and in justice to
the secretary and his assistant, that
they tried to right this terrible wrong
by trying to explain to the chairman
his Taistake. The end is not yet."
All to Themselves.
The negroes had the convention all
to themselves, and the many hours
which the body was in session were
spent in haranguing and asking a
thousand or so questions. Parlia
mentary rules were hammered into a
pulp by the chairman. The most im
portant feature and the "big noise'
of the convention was the "big stick"
used by the negro acting as chairman
for Deas, the State chairman, who
has headed the organization for sev
eral years. Deas was at the meeting
but did not participate in any of the
Jumbled diOcussions on account of
his ill health.
The most important feature of the
early part of the session was the de
feat of "Boss" Perry, of Aiken. There
were two delegations here, and after
much discussion, the delegation, head
ed by Eubanks, was seated.
L. W. C. Blalock was not present.
J. W. Jones a white Republican from
the Piedmont section of the State, was
present, but kept in the background.
The report of the committee on
credentials was received and the only
contest before the convention was the
two delegations from Aiken county.
While the committees were at work
about 90 delegates to the convention
strolled about the hall on Assembly
street, chatted, crowded around a
stand, bought peanuts, red lemonade
and fish sandwiches. There were
many visitors besides the delegates.
T. L. Grant, a well known Repub
lican from Charleston, at the opening
of the convention, took the floor and
urged the members of the convention,
took the floor and urged the members
of the convention to be discreet and
careful in their deliberaions. He said
that the powers that be in Washing
ton were not with the "lily whites"
in this State and that if a conserva
tive policy was not adopted that "tl'e
powers that be" would not recognize
the Republicans in this State.
The execi'tive committee held a inng
session during the morning, but noth
ing of the work of the committee w'as
made known Nothing was said cm
ccrnirg a congress'onal ticket, this
being left to the district conventions.

The creamery promoter sharks
have Invaded sections of the Piedmont
belt of this State and we understand
have succeeded In organizing at least
one creamery company and are now
at work in other communities. In the
sections in which they are working it
is safe to say that there are not enough
cows to supply the local demand for
milk, cream and butter, and yet the
people have been led .to believe that
a plant depending upon a good milk
supply for success, can be profitably
operated. To mislead people into such
an enterprise is nothing but deceit and
graft and the people in every com
munity of the State should be on
guard against such dealers in "gold
Georgia has .iust passed through a
sad and expensive creamery exper
ience. During 1908 creamery promo
ters of Chicago organized seven
creameries in various parts of the
State costing from $4,950 to $6,000.
Of these seven creameries only one is
now in operation and it is financed by
a capitalist. All the remainder have
perished from lack of support. At
some of these plants not more than
40 or 50 cows supplied milk while for
profitable operation the milk from 500
cows of average quality is required.
One of these creameries lost seventeen
hundrd dollars in a few months time,
while the failure of other showed eith
er that no money was made or there
Iwas a loss.
The establishing of creameries in
sections where there is practically no
dairy interest and where local mark
ets pay more for dairy products than
a eamery can possibly pay, is abso
lute folly as is witnessed by the ex
perience of Georgia, Kentucky and
iother States. Yet the people are be
ing misled and deceived by smootti
tongued sellers of machinery who
charge about fifty per cent. more for
their machinery than it can be pur
chased for elsewhere.
That creameries are profitable no
one denies and that samples cited by
promoters in proof of this profit may
be true, but it should be taken into
consideration that these profits were
made in dairy localities-places where
the dairy is the money crop and where
most every farmer has a herd of cows
and understands how to handle those
cows. In such sections creameries
are necessary to handle the milk from
these cows and to find a market for
the products. Such conditions do not
exist in South Carolina. Cows are
scarce and poor in quality and more
than that they can not be bought in
sufficient number. Local demands for
milk can not be supplied even at a
good price and farmers know very lit
tle about how to handle cows to the
best advantage and most often do not
care to learn. A creamery can not
afford to pay more than $1.50 per hun
dred pounds for milk and until the
farmers learn how to produce it at a
profit for this price it is foolish to ex
pect a creamery to be a success.
If any section of the State is inter
ested in a creamery it should care
fully investigate the milk supply first
and then form a company of interested
men, buy the machinery necessary to
equip it at a reasonable price and be
gin operations on a practical busi
ness basis and not be rushed into an
enterprise pushed forward by a set
of men who have no interest in its suc
cess further than the sale of the ma
chinery at exorbitant prices. Banks
and other business undertakings first
investigate the possibilities of success
before offices are erected, but the doc
trine of the creamery promoter is get
the building and equipment first re
gardless of other conditions.
The extension department of Clem
son college will be glad to visit any
community interested in creameries
and advise them as to the require
ments for sucessful operation and as
sist them in every way in establishing
such an enterprise should the outlook
for success prove favorable. Plans
and specifications for creameries cani
be obtained free of cost from the U. S.
department of agriculture.
With all of these things at their
command no community should be
misled and caused to lose money by
men who seek their own gain only.
Where creameries are promoted and
fail the dairy interests are set back
Beware of the creamery promotor
investigate conditions closely and pro
fit by the example of communities that
suffered from the same evil. Informa
tion regarding the creameries that
have failed In Georgia can be obtain
