HISTORIC TENDERLOIN SWEPT BY FIRE AT LEADVILLE

LEADVILLE, Colo. Nov. 19.—The Leadville tenderloin district, famous for its saloons and dance halls in the pioneer days of violence and riotous celebration of sudden wealth, was swept away by fire early today. The damage was not heavy, as most of the buildings were flimsy wooden shacks which had stood since the boom days following the discovery of silver in the hills. The fire started in a rooming house over a saloon and dance hall.
