BoiU for Hoard of Trade.
The Chamber of Commerce building was
situated at .Park and Central streets, in
the RlverVlew district of Kansas City,
Kan. It was at a Junction of the ele
vated railways, two blocks west - of the
Kaw river and a mile southeast of what,
now is the buJlnpKS district of Kansaa
City, Ka.i. It was erected fifteen years
ago at a cost of JM.OOO, to be uaed as a
board of trade. The city grew away from
It, however, and was never used for its
original purpose, but for many years had
bteu occupied as an apartment holise. This
structure was four stories In height, with
a deep buaeinent, and faced two streets.
It was built of brick and stood alone.
It contained 1(H) . rooms, almost all of
which were, as far as can be learned, oc
cupied by families or individual laboring
men or railway employes at the time the
fire started. The ground floor was occu
