May Lease Simmons’ House
Republican Clubs are Negotiating for Olive Street Home
Negotiations are on for the lease of the old Simmons residence, situated on the north side of Olive street, between Beaumont street and Leffingwell avenue, by the St. Louis Republican and the Merchants’ League clubs.

Since the two Republican organizations have practically decided to consolidate, the directors have been looking for commodious quarters, and the Simmons residence is considered suitable.

It is a handsome old pile of brick and stone, which for the last few years has been somewhat neglected. A few dollars judiciously spent in repairs, members of the clubs think, will make it an attractive rendeavous for Republicans. A lease may be closed this week.
