- ERNEST DOLAN of Iron Mountain, was slugged and robbed of $98, a valuable diamond ring, and a suitcase just off the Cass Street Bridge near the Pere Marquette tracks last night. Dolan said he was with two men, one of which he called a friend for the past two years, when the blow which rendered him unconscious was struck, and the men made their escape. He was discovered at 9 a.m. the next morning in convulsions. He was transported to the Leelanau Hotel and later to the Grand Traverse Hospital in critical condition. The doctor believes he will survive though.
