At Chicago a Change is Noted, But Many Oeaths from Sunstroke Are Reported. An Unarmed English Boat Fired Upon By Rus sians Near the Gull of Saros. THE TORRID TERM. IN ST. LOUIS. Si. Louis, July 18.—It is Btill blazing hot this morning, but there is a pretty stiff breeze blowing from the west, which tem pers the intense rnyB of the Hun and renders them more bearable than on previous dayp. There is more animation and bustle in the streets this morning more people moving about, and more business doing. There is also a feeling of relief among all classes, the greatly diminished death rate of yesterday inducing a belief that the worft is over, and from this time on, although the wcalbcrmay continue very warm, as it probably will, its efieets will lie less severe, and that all may return to their UBiial occupations and habits. Capt.E H. Pierce, of Knoxville, Illinois, who was stricken down Saturday last and sent to the hospital, d'.ed there at 1 o'clock tliis morning. Jacob Scliroeder, a tailor was found dead in bed at his home tliis morning. Cause heat. At the dispensary up to 1 o'clock only tbice cases of sunstroke were reported. Total number of permits issued yesterday,50, of which 10 were for sun stroke but they were not all for deaths that occurred yesterday. Total number of per mits issued to noon to-day, 3S, of which 9 for sunstroke, but none occurred to-day. Indications are that there will be compara tively few cases to-day, and death rate will be small without any very great danger. A very fine spirit thermometer hanging under an awning, in the shady side of 4th street, showed the follwing result: Eight o'clock, 87 degrees nine o'clock, 90 ten o'clock, 91 eleven o'clock, 93. The city dispensary has been very quiet. IN curcAoo. Chicago, July 18.—A delightful change in theweather and temperature occurred during the early hours of the morning, and the thermometer now registers from 70 to 80, with a strong hree/.e blowing fresh from the lake, and a prospect of but little further un comfortable weather. Final reports show that yesterday's fatal cases of sunstroke in Chicago were much more numerous llian^on any preceding day. Thirty-one deathshave been reported, and thirty-six cases more or less severe. The names not reported last night, were August Uuhe, Mrs. Robinson, Adolph Weiktzell, Christina Kontz, Mrs. Davenport, Thos. Mu'loy, Madaline Schulz, an unknown laborer on 32d street, Henry llolz, Albert Kolafa, N. Stiffer, Jerry Lynch, Ilcnry Sinallroch, Mrs. Margaret Limbs and Mrs. Sophia Koplie. Besides these, there are some twenty whose recovery is consid ered doubtful. The Evening Journal says: The police reports show 59 sunstrokes on Tuesday and yesterday, of which 29 were fatal. This does not, however, include more than two thirds—perhaps not more one-half of all the cases, as many cases were prostrated at tl eir home', and such were not reported at the stations. The following are the additional deaths from yesterday's sunstrokes as reported to day Jno. Loss, Lcvina ICeinberg, Mre. Link, Mrs. Robinson, Paul Myers, Adolph Marksill, Mrs. Mary Morgan, Mrs. Tracy, Nicholas Stefien and Wm. Hobb. At 2 o'clock a cool lake breeze is blowing. No cases of sunstroke have been reported as having occurred to-day, and the thermome ter is falling a trille each hour. FOREIGN. A ORB AT 8TH1KK.

Peek, of the North west line, is expected in to morrow on her way to Cheyenne agency. The Bteamer Nellie Pick is looked for from above to-morrow or next day. She will load at Sioux City. Col. Akin has decided to move the office of the Northwest transpoitation company from Yankton to Sioux City and during the balance of thfc season the Indian contract boats will load at that port. The impossi bility of making satisfactory freight rates with the Dakota Southern railroad is the cause of this change, which is made against the desire of both Col. Peck and Col. Akin. The Missouri river barge experiment has proved a success. The steamer Gen. Lane and a fleet of three barges with a cargo of 84,000 bushels of corn left Kansas City on an experiment trip on the morning of the 5th and reached St. Louis without a mishap in 5Jij dnvs, the distance being 457 miles. The success of this experiment will doubt less lead to the shipment of a largo propor tion of the products of the Missouri valley by the water route to the ocean and thence to Europe. Council Blufl* Nonpareil: A peculiar boat known as the "Col. Macleod" is now on its way up the Missouri, and will probably arrive at this point in about eight or ten days. It is stern wheel steamer, 175 feet long by twenty-six feet bredath of beam, ind draws ouly twelve inches of water. It contains in its engine more power for its light draft than has ever been realized in a boat before, aad is destined to ply be tween Ft.Benton and points as far east as 220 miles, at a time when other boats are forced to tie up to the banks and await the favor able ministrations of Jupiter Pluviu?,.or as a river man would say, to wait for a rise." It frequently happens, after the June rise runs out, that the head of navigation falls ehort of Ft. Benton about 150 miles. To meet this emergency the "Macleod" was made, and so well has the idea of its project tors been realized that it is claimed for the vessel that it "can run across a meadow af ter a good dew." Ten years ago such alight boat would have been considered an impos sibility. At the present rate of progression a Missouri river steamer will he able to go wherever a mule can. Capt. Nick Buescn yesterday closcd a bargain with Capt. Frank Marrataby which the former transfers to the latter his one fifth interest in the steamer Key West. Capt. Bucsen resigns, the deck of the Key West to Capt. Maratla and will go to Pitts burg where he will make a contract for a new Missouri river steamer, to operate in the Coulson line. It is six years to-day since the Key West reached Yankton fresli from the Pittsburg docks. During her en tire career she has been under command of Capt. Bucsen and the excellent reputation she has made seems so much a part of the reputation of her late master that is is bard to tell which is most thought of—Capt. Nick, or the Key West. The two have have been inseperable through a successful career of steamboating and the Key West is known from Yankton to Benton as ono of the most reliable crafts afloat. Capt. Bucsen hasTftjade money with her, both tor himself and the other owners, and it is gratifying to know that he retires from her command with something to show for his six years' faithful labor. Capt. Maratta is a resident of Rochester, Pennsylvania, lie is a steamboatman ol almost lifelong cx- Ilately h" 'i1' ,S 'i"' 5 perlencc In the Ohio and Mississippi and ho has been learning Utc Miwoun, wV^Ay-i.sU w, TP VANKTON, DAKOTA TERRITORY, THURSDAY EVENING, JULY 18,1878. with this changc in view. lie will doubt less keep up the reputation of the Key West.

The Deadwood Times speaking of the pro' posed removal of Spotted Tail and Red Clond, says the "desire for a change is nothing but a mere Indian whim, induced by the repre sentations of men who are looking for freight ing contracts and other speculative opportu nities. Among the amounts allowed !v the com missioners of Lawrence county was §17,551. 55 to the sheriff for three months services.

The New Town of Wheeler—A Prosperous Community Engaged In Farming and Stock Growing. WHEELED, Dakota, July 15, 1878. Editors Press and Dakolaian. I arrived at this place after thirty hours' run on the good steamer Western, and found everything in a prosperous condition. N. B. Reynolds has a fine stock of general mer chandise in his new and commodious store, and is receiving a good large share of the patronage from the good people up in this country. He is running in connection with his store a large farm and stock ranch, hav ing under cultivation 150 acres of as fine land as you would wish to see. I had the pleasure of going out on the hills and look ing over his fine herd of stock, consisting of about 170 head of cattle, among which are two very fine blooded bulls, one of which was shipped from Iowa this spring. It is his intention to cross this stock with Texas and Cherokee cattle, and see what the result will be. He also has 25 head of very fine horses and mules, and manages to keep everything on his place either at work or in a growing and prosperous condition. Wheeler is-situated in Charles Mix coun ty, about eighteen miles above White Swan, on the second bench or table, about one-half a mile from the Missouri river in a fine ag ricultural and stock growing county. In case the extension of the great Indian reser vation, and the thirty mile strip on the east side of the Missouri river withdrawn, it promises in the near future to be a place of some considerable importance. Among the old residenters it was my good fortune to meet Charles Barber, who is quite exten sively engaged in agriculture, strock grow ing and the wood business. Horton T. Wheeler, who has, as he always has had the finest garden in the northwest, is also farm ing and raising some stock and keeping a wood yard. The Oldham Bros, are also engsged in raising stock on quite a large scale. Old Jim Furgason is still here as well, hearty and ready for work as ever. Should the In dian reservation be withdrawn Charles Mix county will in the near future be one of the most wealthy and prosperous stock growing and agricultural counties in southern Dako ta.
