FIRE IN POLICE BUILDING.

FIRE IN POLICE BUILDING.

The police headquarters building at Buffalo, N. Y., was burned on the afternoon of November 1. The fire was of incendiary origin. Policerecords, the “Rogues’ Gallery” and many important documents, including the original copy of Leon Czolgosz’s confession of the assassination of President McKinley, were destroyed. The fire was of incendiary origin. The firemen apparently had the flames under control and were working on the third floor, when the cupola toppled over and crashed through the roof and top floor, catching the men in the crash. They were released after twenty minutes of hard work and eight of them taken to the hospital. Among them was Captain Michael Haggerty. The building was practically destroyed, and the loss is estimated at $100,000.
