H ( Btlf Good Valued at 93.000 Stolen ilHKiL -, ' from Ills Iiandtady. ; '"v' mSKll r Two detecttvei of Inspector McLaugh- Pvtt Jln'i lUR and the ward men of the Hbf But Blxty-seventh street station, under KT$ faa direction of Capt. Strauss, are 11E& ' arching the city to-day for George B7 l Schlefele, eighteen years old, who la HjK'i ' auspected of having- stolen W.000 worth Hrf of jewelry yesterday and then set fire V ' to a house at 403 Bast Sixty-ninth street hB'. to conceal the robbery. LKjH: '. Mrs. Anna Beran, widow of a Jeweller Bjp who was In business In One Hundred RK-ira and Twenty-fifth street, resides at tho HflHf&w address given. A few months ago she B.JV took Schlefele as a bonrtlrr. Up came K.V to her strongly recommended by his LKj ' uncle, a Mr. iJebler, who is the I'resl- HaH'iv dent of a lodge that owns the house In BHUW'fk. Which Mrs. Ueran lives. pHtsVarli' Mrs. Beran lived In tho -third floor HaB'i tMX. Bn) nad four rooms. Schlefele oc- BBi-l cupied a small room In the rear. He has IssssHSz done no work, Mrs. Heran says, since he BMV lived With her, and for the past month flKjV aa paid no board. In "a closet In the K4 front room Mrs. Heran kept n satchel Hp filled with diamonds and Jewelry, which i'f she had retained from tho stock In Vi. , her husband's Jewelry store. The wo- v.' man believes that Schlefele knew this M.,!' Jewelry was In the house. '.v i At 11 o'clock yesterday mornlnR Mrs. a1 Beran went out to pay a visit to some illllBvL friends In Hoboken and did not return HH until late In the evening. At 5.30 o'clock B '.i In the afternoon tenants In the house K-'V became aware that something was J.tf wrong. There was smoko In the halls, H:,r and It got thicker and thicker. RK''i- Finally an Investigation was made and K'i'' . Are was discovered In Mrs. Heran's H?r rooms. An alarm was turned In, but the mi J flames, which were confined to Mrs. Bx Heran. bedroom, were extinguished saaaaaaaaaW;i?' before more than 1200 damage had been LaaaaaaaKlLi done. aaaaHaW"!?. The circumstances looked suspicious to EtWAr the flremen.as there was no lire in any B '--( atove In the room or. Indeed, In the lint, B and the Fire Marshal was asked to In- H'm -vestlgate. ffe' Mrs. Beran first learned of. the fire LaaaaaaaV ifi when she reached home at 10 30 o'clock illlWdr' last night. She Immediately thought of int ' ta jewelry and rushed up the stairs. LVfllB-v The bag with the Jewelry was gone. H,lp Bchlefele. It Is said, had been In the flat iiiHv during Mrs. Beran's absence, and had iaaaaaaK V left early In the afternoon. The police K'V were at once notified by Mrs. lieran, B'v Who then began to suspect Schlefele. illlHw' Half an hour before the smoke was iaaaaaaaV-' A discovered In the hall Schlefele had gone BS...V;. to the housekeeper and said: ftX'-'i "fam going to India." LVflBBS'.,):? "Indlar exclaimed the housekeeper, BtHflrX-'U for she knew the youth had not worked aaaaaaaaB'1 - or a 'on6 time and never had any sKk' money. K-f-rf "Yes he continued, "I'm going to H.. India. I'm offered a good position there." illlK' The room In which the Jewelry had llllB ' been kept was locked. The youth had no K . key to ft. But the door had been forced, -' and near the lock were the marks of a HHUB'V;" "Jimmy." The police think that the 1M.:? robbery was committed by Schlefele, LaaaaB',' V ' and that he then set fire to the house. It The suspected youth Is described as Vio'r .being of medium build, about 6 feet 4 bbbbsWau? inches tall, and with a smooth fnr He L'i can speak but little English. When iiSsKii,' ths housekeeper saw htm last he was HV- dressed In ai light checked coat and vest, BlH-'' dark striped trousers, soft felt hat and E3T "russet shoes. General Instructions have HHtp been sent out to watch all the Bteam- H ship offices and piers, as well as the simL - I docks from which any vessels may salt. The stolen Jewelry as reported to the police Is as follows: Three gold watches, valued at 1200; one pair solitaire dia mond earrings, $100; four diamond rings 1223; three ladles' gold watches, $120; six sliver watches, 75, 150 ladles' gold rings, I7D0: eight gold rings, J, four silver chains, 110: live pairs diamond earrings, $225; thirty pairs cold earrings. J22ii six nickel watches, 20j twcnty-Ilve gold pens. STiO; twenty gold IpbiI pencils, $.10; live gold chains, 1100, ln) gold and dia mond collar buttons, 1T00. The only clue the pollre had this mornlnR was obtained by Wardmcn Gra ham and Weber. They found two young men, who were friends of Schlefele. They said that Schlefele had, within the past week, showed them a gold watch and a diamond ring. Also two pawn tickets. From this It Is believed that the youth started to steal the jewelry a little at a time, but finally decided to take It all at onre. Bchlefele's uncle Is a wealthy butcher, of 165 First avenue. He said, when seen this morning: "I have not seen the boy In several days, but I hardly believe he would rom mlt an act of that character. I don't think him capable of stealing," A STRUGGLE WITH THIEVES. OIntscr lipid On to Ills Jinn, nml ftrrrnmnl.
