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
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

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.
Millionaire Grout Is in Great
A First Wife Who Considers an
Arizona Divorce as
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
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.

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." .

Carved by an Artist of Another
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
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
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 With the Crooked Check
- Supposed to Be Geo. McGowan.
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.
