CINCINNATI, Oct. 13.—A Good portion of the excitement of the state campaign this year hao been provided by Murat Halstead, editor of .The Commercal Qazotte. Some days ago he charged over his own signature In the editorial columns of his paper that Campbell, tho Democratic candidate for governor, was iutorestei in a patent ballot- box, which be tried to benefit by a bill In congress wbilu a member thereof. Campbell pronounced the statement a Ho. Then Halstoad printed what purported to be a fac simile of tha contract for stock in tho ballot-box scheme, with Campbell's signature attached. Accompanying the publication were the most positive- and emphatic reiterations ot tha The above cut represents the Duluth Imperial Mill, an enterprise already well known to many of our readers through the connection with it of one of our former citizens, Mr. B. C. Church, who was for many years in the milling bus- inees here, and who is now Secretary and Manager of this Company. Duluth possesses many advantages over its competitors in the Northwest, as a milling center, chief among which is Its superior grade of No. 1 hard wheat, which is known in all of the principal markets of the world as the best milling wheat raised, and Its location at the bead of the lakes enables shipments to be made from there the greater part of the year by water, thus saving the necessary delay and expense caused by reloading from cars Into boats.

The engine room ia 88 by 24 and 40 feet high mid the boiler room 08 by 48 feet. The machinery of the mill is all driven by a steeple compound, condensing engine of the Corless type, having COO horse power. This engine stands 35 feet high, and together with the two immense fly wheels, weighs over 200,000 lb?.. It is driven by a battery of four boilers, each 18 feet lonR and 05 Inches in diameter, the boilers being set with the Butman furnace.

Oct. 12.—The annual canorush at tho North western university at Kvanston, Illi, took placo yesterday, tho fight beginning at 4 p. m. Thoro was a large crowd of visitors, besides th9 collegians who did not take part in tho rush, the struggle being between the sophomores nnd freshmen. Tho conditions of the contest were that It was to last not longer than seventeen, mlnutea If at the expiration of that time tho freshmen hold the cane against tho onslaught of the older collegians they would ba entitled to twirl sticks for" a twelvemonth without fear of molestation. The stick was one and n quarter inches In diameter and four feet Ion?. If the sophc- morea wrenched tho cane from these giants or broke It in tho assault the freshmon could not carry canes for a year. Last year the freshmen won the buttle. Formutlim of tha floats. The fifty freshmen of 'OS formed in throe divisions at tho southern end of the campus. Behind them were tho giants of the class— Betchflller, Mailley and Walker—with their hands wrapped around tho white ash cane and braced to receive the coming shock. There .were only forty-three sophomores. They were led by Capt Noyes. When tho freshmon braced themselves for the attack the "sophs" formed In nine compact divisions with their giants in tho first platoon. All were in a crouching posture and each had singled out the freshman whom ho was to attack. Cheered the Fair Women. Just as,the signal for the attack was about to be given nearly fifty sophomore girls from chellcr'a giant foi'in, clad in whitoand blncrt, towered hijh above the sophomores who woro tugging at his lojs nnd arms. His big brown hands woro wrapped around tho center of tho stick. A" ho stood there in the midst of n writhing muss of bodies, lugs and arms, his pule, grim face lookud like that of a tempost-tossi-d pilot, who had fastened his hands upon tha wheel and proposed to hold them there until "tholast galoot waa ashore." Muilloy and Walker also clung to the stick with all tho desperation of their classmate. Twice they woro brought to thoir knees by blows nnd skillful wrestling, but th.jy never released thoir grip.

With along leap ho seized boih ends of tha cnno, nnd, throwing himself so that his foot were in the air, brought his entire weight upon the stick, which cracked nnd finally snapped ill twain in tho hands ot B.itcUeller, Mnlll(iy, and Walker. A mighty roar roaa from tho sophomores, and their pretty adherents waved their ribboned umbrellas above the heads of the spectators. The freshmon'bad been beaten. Vawot'tt UIR Hern. With loud cheers and the college cry of "Rah, rah, rah, zip, boom, rah, N. W. U. "93," three excited ".sopbs" lifted Fawcatt upon their shim dors and trotted him about the campus.

The Commercial Gazette came out with an article over Halstead's signature acknowledging that the alleged signature ifl a forgery ; that conclusive proof of this Imd been laid bafore him Thursday night, and that ho took the earliest opportunity to make that.much amende. He tnicea care to say, however, that it ia only the signature that U fraudulent, and that the other papers and circumstancaa that seem Jfe show crookedness on Campbell's part stand as they were. This sudden drop has caused the greatest excltemanj in political circles. The Republicans are angry at Halstoad for allowing hlmsolt to be imposed upon to the serious injury of the party's prospects, and tho Demo- orals are showing more confidence and enthusiasm than they hove displayed since the eloction forgeries of 1S35. • Yoazey and th* Baltimore Fo»tofllce.

NEW YOIIK, Oct. 13.—Judge Wallace, in the United States court yesterday.handed down a decision in an action brought by William It Spies against tho Chicago and Eastern Illinois railroad, dismissing the action with costs. The complainant was tho holder of income'bonds of the road. Ho alleged that tho bonds wero executed in 1SS1 by tho defendant, who pledgi-U the next earnings of the railway, as it then existed, as security for the payment ot the principal ot the bonds and interest This agreement was carried out until September, 1M)£>, when the directors of the road, as alleged, "conspired - to fraudulently compel t'.io holders of the income bonds to surrender them for consul bonds subsequently created." The answer ol tho defendants denioJ. the allegation of fraud. The reason of the dismissal was that, though tho bonds should have been mot as above provided, the complainant having alleged fraud, he cannot support his complaint upon any other ground.
