London Freight Shed Burned.—The company's freight shed and offices on York street, between Wellington and Waterloo Sts., London, Ont., were destroyed by fire Mar. 6, involving an estimated loss of from $125,000 to $150,000. The buildings were considerably damaged by a fire about five years ago, and have been merely patched up since. The mayor and representatives of the Chamber of Commerce and the Board of Trade are reported to have sent a joint message to the company's headquarters at Montréal, asking that steps be taken to erect modern freight 8heds and offices. A press report states that a freight shed and a 2-story office building, to cost approximately $30,000 are to be erected at once, and that it is expected to have the work completed by June 1.
