She Is Called Down by Japan, but Stands Pat and Says She Means It Other Troubles of the Government. By the Associated Press. San Francisco, Nov. 17. The steamer Australia, which arrived today from Honolulu brings news of a diplomatic correspondence, indicating somewhat strained relations between the govern ments of Hawaii and Japan. , It is reported that Fuji, Japanese con sul general at Honolulu, sent a com munication to Foreign Minister Hatch complaining of the statement reported to have been made by Mr. Thurston, Hawaiian minister to the United States, in an interview published in an American newspaper. Mr. Thurston was charged with having said that it was the intention of his government to root out the Japanese and Chinese in Hawaii. The Japanese consul general de manded to know whether the Hawaiian government endorsed the words of Minister Thurston. In his reply, For eign Minister Hatch politely declined A Premium for Cash Trade.: Silver Dollars; Ezra W. inayer, ate, ate. $1 to recognize the authority of the re ported newspaper interview and stated that he did not believe Minister Thurston had made the assertion at tributed to him. Minister Hatch is said to have inti mated, however, that his government did desire to see European laborers substituted for the large numbers of Japanese and Chinese laborers in the islands. . He also declared there was no desire to annoy Japanese laborers now in Hawaii and that their rights would be fully protected. The Hawaiian government is said also to be much worried over the large number of needy Americans who are flocking to Honolulu in search of re munerative employment, which is not to be had, and who threaten to become a public charge. Over 200 of this class are reported to have arrived during one week. ASKS MORE ALIMONY. Millionaire Grout Is in Great Trouble. A First Wife Who Considers an Arizona Divorce as Worthless. Special to The Chronicle. Orange, Mass., Nov. 14. The first wife of Millionaire William Grout, who disregards the Arizona divorce procured last January by her hus band, today filed a second libel against him. In this libel Mrs. Grout alleges that Grout was unfaithful to his marriage vows between January 26 and Novem ber 5, 1894. Recently Grout married, in another state, Miss Eliza Reynolds, and Mrs. Grout No. 2 is named as co respondent. Apparently the second libel holds that Grout H a bigamist and prominent lawyers hold this to be true so far as the Massachusetts law is concerned. Grout is in California with his bride. His legal residence is in Arizona and service upoa him cannot be obtained. Underneath all the legal sparring is a contest to see how much money Grout may pay his wife No. 1 for alimony. She wants $50,000 more than he is will ing to pay. When the terms are agreed upon the divorce will be granted in this state and everything will be lovely. Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder Most Perfect Made. Cash Purchase Is Locked Up Pending the Coroner's Verdict. An Expert Trainer of Riordan Thinks it Was Accidental and That the Victim Was to Blame. By the Associated Press. Svracuse, N.Y., Nov. 17. Riordan, the pugilist, who was knocked uncon scious last night, by Bob Fitzsimmons in the sparring exhibition, died at the Candee house at 8:30 this morning. Fitzsimmons, when informed of Rior dan's death, burst into fobs. Fitzsim mons is locked up, awaiting the action of the coroner's jury. An Expert Opinion. Chicago, Nov. 17. Charles E. Daviea, who had Con Riordan under his management for nearly a year spar ring with Jackson, says: "Riordan, while a clever boxer, was a very heavy drinker. While with Jackson he would often not show up for the entertain ment until time to go on and would usually be full. He was one of the kind of drinkers whom liquor made dull and heavy and too much over exertion would be liable to prove dan gerous if not fatal. "I think it purelv an accident, as Fitzsimmons is not a vicious boxer. He aleo had the habit wile boxing of sleep ing and would thus meet a blow which. if striking him at a vital point would be liable to put bim out. This sleeping while it would catch the crowd, was al ways dangerous, au'a I think it will be found he did this last night. It can only be classed as an accident, which it happening to a person ol any other profession, would have little or no at tention paid to it." .

A Curious Discovery Which Will Be of Interest to Archaeolo gists. Mr. W. R. Ford, a farmer living six miles west of the city, has made a dis covery which will create a stir among archaeologists. It is also likely to lend additional light to studies of the early habitation of this part of the country, only traces of which are seen in the ancient canals and discoveries of pot tery. Last Friday while at work on his farm Mr. Ford picked up two small oh jecis which appeared to be bits of dirty glass or semi-transparent stone"! Ilia attention was attracted only by their nearly circular shape which resembled that of a button. Brushing the dirt from one of them he imagined he Baw a human face traced upon it. He examined it more intently and found it was a human face which could have been produced only by great artistic skill. One side of the glass or stone lozenge for it has not yet been determined which it is, is convex ; the other is flat and extends beyond forming a flange which has been broken in places. The carving is done upon the flat side, . that is if the work is carving, though it may be only an im pression made if the lozenge iB glass, while it was in a plas tic state. But the marvelous cor rectness of outline of the impression or carving, whichever it may be, is the most wonderful part of it. The face is feminine. It is strictly Grecian in contour, a type accentuated by the style of the hair and the poise of the neck. The effect produced looking at the lozenge from tbe oval side, is cameo-like, showing a face overlying a face. The other lozenge is similar in shape but bears instead of a face a rose the outline of whose leaves is sb distinct as those of the face. The lozenges are nearly as large in diameter as a silver dime and about an eighth of an inch in thicsness. ' - Mr. Ford brought the one containing the face to town yesterday morning and showed it to various jewelers. All said they had never seen any work like it and believed it to have .been produced by a method so ancient that it hpd been lost. He was offered and refused $100 for the relic. He will send it to the Smithsonian institute for investiga tion. The farm owned by Mr. Ford is rich in relics of a former age. He has a large collection of stone implements of various kinds and other evidences of an earlier civilization, but these are of an entirely different character than his re cent discovery. He believes that his farm occupies the site of a ruined city of which so many evidences have been discovered in that and other parts of the valley. That those curious lozenges were handed down from a period when art and civilization flourished and came at last to be mingled with the ruder implements and ornaments of the semi civilization of tbe Aztecs. Whoever carved that face or whoever made the die that impressed it knew something of the art of Greece when the gods were no farther from men than the top of Olympus. The solu tion of the problem lies with the archaeologists who will have to paes upon the genuineness of the relic. They will still be in doubt as to whether it was brought here from the east, whether the skill which made it was developed here or whether the ancient artist had been wafted east ward across the Pacific when western Europe was in a condition of wild sav agery and when the sun of civilization had not yet thrown his first rays upon the land where Columbus was born.

The man who cashed a forged check at the Bee Hive on Friday night is sup posed to be George McGowan. Mc Gowan is a stranger, but this supposi tion is based on the fact that the check was made payable to him and on the further circumstEnce that a description of McGowan iB a good description of the man with the spurious check. The work was not very smooth, but perhaps its very want of smoothness was calcu lated to keep down suspicion. It bore the signature of tbe "L. W. Blinn Company," the word "lumber" was inserted as an after thought by the writer and was so carelessly done that the natural conclusion was that a forger would have written a new check. A warrant was issued by Justice Johnstone for McGowan. Henry Brown, who had been ar rested the day before on complaint of McGowan for a disturbance of the peace, was fined $15 and he went to jail. His experience made him com municative on the subject of McGowan. That reprobate, he said, came down with him from the north and eouth road where they had been at work. He also said that McGowan has a bad record in California of which he is cognizant and as soon as his late part ner is caught he will make a revelation.
