Company E Leads.
Company E. Cth regiment, I. N. G..
of Sterling, is now the first company
in the first battalion of that regiment,
and as such will have precedence
over all companies in the First battal
ion, and will be the secon 1 company
in standing in the regiment. The ad
vance is made by virtue of the fact
that Capt. John Cushman is now the

advancing him to that rank.
Albert rctcrson, aged 22, of Moline,
was picked up on the C. R. I. & P.
railway tracks near Brooks' crossing in
the east end of the city about 12 o'clock
He was lying near the railway track,
nconscious. and was discovered by a
pedestrian who heard his moans. He
was removed to St. Anthony's hospital,
where he was given surgical attention.
His condition fe regarded as critical,
several of the ribs of the left side
having been crushed, and other injuries
He did not regain consciousness, and
't is not known how he came in the
condition he was found, though it is
supposed he was hit by a train. His
identity was learned from a hafmark,
and this was confirmed by inquiry in
Moline. He is a teamster.
I.lltlc Hope of Hrrvrr.
The physicians and hospital attend
ants give little hope for his recovery,
and it will perhaps never be known in
what manner he received the injuries.

Attel Out in Sixth Round.
Philadelphia. Pa.. March :;. Jimmy
Valsh, of Roston. knocked out Monte
Attel, of San Francisco, in the sixth
round at the National Athletic club
last night. Atted went under from a
stunning left hand blow. He teok the
count, but immediately jumped up and
claimed a feul. The spectateirs laugh
ed and the referee refused to allow it.
Attel never had a look in from the
start. Walsh fought viciously from the
first., and in the second round it looked
ns if Attel was going. He rallied, how
ver, and in the third showed signs ef
improvement. He landed squarely two
fir three times, and once won applause
by a well-delivered blow on the jaw-
In the fourth, however, he began to
weaken again, and in the fifth fought
as if he were out walking. In the sixth
round Walsh went at it with determina
ion. After some feinting he ducked a
wild swing and came up at Attel with
vicious blow. Attel went down and
