TOWN AND COUNTY. Arrested por Assault.—The fes tive gun is always a great power in an argument, so thought E. W. Melcher, Who wus lately in the employ of Robt. Mason, a prosperous Cow creek stock man. Melcher had hired himself out to Mason with an agreement that Ma» eon was to receive reasonable notice of any intention on the part of the hired hand to "jump the job". Melcher soon conoluded to seek pastures new, and so informed his employer, who told him to go whenever he got ready, but feeling that the "laborer is worthy of his hire," Melcher refused,and using some very expressive cuss words "planted"' himself with the apparent intention of staying until further no tice. Mason then retired to another room, picked ,ip a gun and laying it across hi* arm returned, and said to Melcher, "So you won't leave?" The argutrient was sufficiently persuasive, although no threatening overtures were made, and Mr. Melcher wended his way to Ritzville, where he swore out a warrant accusing the defend...

London, Jan. 30.—The attitude of Brit ish investors toward American business underwent a notable change during the past week. The mind of the British pub lic is always slow to grasp changes, and people here are only just beginning to realize what financiers and politicians have for months considered the most important fact of the year—the tremendous com mercial advancement of the Uuited States.
