Two stories as to why. First. There were several small offices in the buildings lining the row and each had it's own small wood (or coal) heater. So when they were all burning, they made a lot of smoke that filled the street at times.
Second. Many of those small offices were lawyer's offices and the name came from them all smoking cigars and the like while cutting deals over various cases.
But no one can say anything certain about any of them.
