- San Francisco, Oct 3S. After listen
ing to the story he had.td tell to them
today,' the police here announced that
William Bastian, as be gave his name,
was not a bit extravagant In his esti
mate when he placed the value of the
property he has stolen in the past ten
years at 1290,090. They were, inclined
to think, they adedd, that? the estimate
was not high enough.- . i - , ,
i Bastian if that is hia real name, was
a real "RaffleB." He made an art of
burglary. - He is a very good looking,
clean cut, polite, excellently educated
and well but not loudly dressed man of
19. - ' ' ''
He would tell the police nothing of
his Antecedents but it was evident that
he came from a good family. The young
woman who; lived with,, him as his sis
ter 1 plainly a German, , Her companion
may be German too,- but he does -not
talk like one. This waa why the police
doubted . the story of their ' 1 relatlon

. , Pair Have Pretty Home.
''The pair' have Jived in San Francisco
for five years, the so-called Bastian told
the police. They did not live like crim
inals and Indeed the girl may not i be
one. v They occupied a house, which the
man bqught and paid for In the most
conventional possible style, In Stanyan
street, on the fashionable s Parnassus
heights. It is a pretty house and a fine
garden surrounds it ,' , ,' " f
' However, there were a few queer
thing the neighbors noticed about them.
They never could understand how .the
couple could live in such style in view
of the fact that the man, to all appear
ances, never worked. It eyas , also
deemed odd that persons of such evi
dent wealth kept no' servants. 1 Trades
men noticed that they were never ad
mitted to the house when they, brought
goods. Either Bastian or the girl ln
variably took charge of them at the
door, '''! t- ' '' ' ; c
Didnt X.lke Children Around,
- Tbe man'1 tool strongly disliked'' to
have any one linger: about the place. He
objected even to having children play
log in front of his house, and frequently
telephoned to the police to drive them
away. A . i ,', " .
To this excluslveness, which the neigh
bors wondered at but for .which Bas
tian had such excellent reasons, and to
the fact that he always "worked" alone,
the police attributed his long immun
ity from arrest or even suspicion.
Yet his capture, . when it finally came,
was rldloulously easy. Bastian had

she was his sister and searched the
place. In it they- found much valuable
jewelry, not yet disponed of. a crucible
