Trenton Times, The (Newspaper) - August 24, 1883, Trenton, New Jersey i VOL I NO FRIDAY AUGUST 1 TWO First PORK AND DRESSED SENATOR TAYLOR'S BIG ESTABLISHMENT Inscription of the Where are Slaughtered Tickled Beef for the hy Any review of the commercial interests of Trenton would which failed to make prominent mention of the well known and extensive pork packing and wholesale dressed beef establishment owned and ted hy John Taylor This house needs no in- or recommendation to the tunic anywhere within a radius of two hundred miles pf Trenton for it is as one of the largest if not the most extensive of its east of the Allegheny Mountains and it is safe to it is the leading commercial enterprise in the State in any line controlled and operated by any one individual buth in the extent of space pied by the various buildings necessary in dueling the business and in the volume of its current financial transactions This commercial owes ils existence and remarkable success to the indomitable pluck energy ami business sagacity of the founder and present proprietor of the house and is the outgrowth of a wholesale grocery house in this city twenty-five years ago by the same enterprising individual wlm by the way was the pioneer in the wholesale grocery ness iu the capital city of New Jersey Aside from its prominence as the leading individual commercial enterprise in the State and out a doubt the most extensive enterprise in the city arc many inter- esting facts and features to be described about the busmen an 1 tvs to make an interesting and important pnp r the series of and articles now appearing in the columns of THE Twelve years ago the length of time house has been in existence the site occupied by the various buildings comprising the was devoted to agricultural poses and the surroundings gave very little promise of the busy population now ing that portion of the city which is due en- tirely to the rapid development of John modest venture in the pork packing and wholesale dressed beef business THE OK THE ESTABLISHMENT The site referred to is located along the creek and the division of Railroad with a frontage oil ami avenues Taylor's refrigerator building ing establishment and gether brick erected by the proprietor principally for the use of his employees cover three and a half acres of ground and represent an investment of over The main building is a substantial structure of brick and stone feet in dimensions and the interior combine every feature that and long experience have been able to devise for the rapid slaughtering of cattle and hogs and the curing of pickled and tion of fresh meat The building is provided with two slaughtering departments one for and the other for ing cattle and lambs and a power engine located in the basement is one of the more important adjuncts that tend to tate speed in this branch of the business An idea of the magnitude of the enterprise may be from the statement that the hog slaughtering department has a capacity for slaughtering and dressing hogs a day and the hanging room has a for hanging HOU hogs At this season of the year the slaughtering business is con- lined to cattle and lambs and about 75 head of the former nnd head of the latter are slaughtered every week and about head of cattle on the hoof are sold every week to butchers in this city and vicinity The ber of hogs slaughtered during the Fall and season amount to over head And in the euros Irom to tierces of hams annually which are purchased green from the block in Chicago The dressed beef business is rapidly increasing and in order to meet the demands of trade a new building for thr rmd of fresh meat hiw just com which w a model building for the pose intended and represents a large outlay ol This building is feet in sions and the refrigerator room the ceiling ol which is twelve feet in the clear has a capacity for hanging 150 full length carcasses of dressed Immediately over the refrigerator room has n capacity for storing tons of ice IF The main walls of the building are con- of brick and stone and are two leet in thickness The main walls however are on th 1 spare between tin inside arc lined with three layers of plank with a thick layer of felt between each layer of plank The standing temperature of trie re- room registers above the freezing point the year round The beef is conveyed to the refrigerator building by an ingenious railway system which forms a continuous circuit from the slaughtering department and the room where the meat is dressed to every portion of the refrigerator room The basement of the re- building will be used for curing pickled meat and no expense has spared in preparing this portion of the building for af Wie in commodious stock yards supplied with pure running water and it is safe to say that his new refrigerator building for the preservation of fresh meat is one of the bent buildings ever constructed for the purpose The various brands of meats sent Quit by this house are it is well known in- cut trim cure and flavor by any other similar establishment in the country The best recommendation however of the uniform standard of quality maintained is the im- mense of the house which extends to every city and town within a radius of two hundred miles The annual trade of the house reaches the sum of one and half million dollars and the juist year it to At present only people are employed the establishment but during the hog killing season the number of employees is increased to The house employs no traveling salesmen to drum up trade relying solely on the merits of its goods for ite ness The majority of the employees of this house have been connected with the ment a number of years and them have been provided with table on easy terms by their employer Out of the fifty-eight bouses erected near his establishment Mr Taylor has sold all but twenty-four on the ment plan principally to men in his employ WHOLE The of

Jarrard says fell through temporarily and he gives full details of subsequent concealing the erty in which he claims he was systematically by agent While the ier was still hanging fire Jarrard I went to Mi lea Ross this was a bitter for me as I had not spoken to Ross in mauy years and gave him the history of the whole thing asking him to stop the with Carpender and to give mo back my homo on the terms that they were giving it to His reply was that he knew nothing about the transaction that was doing the business he could not step in and inter- fere My great desire and anxiety for keeping the place was that I had a good offer in prospect imd I HOW know that if I could have held the property ten months longer I could have dis- posed of it at over This sum would have paid all my debts and
