Trenton Times, The (Newspaper) - August 24, 1883, Trenton, New Jersey i Twelve years ago the length of time tin- house has been in existence the site occupied by the various buildings comprising the estab- lishment was devoted to agricultural pur- poses, and the surroundings gave very little promise of the busy population now inhabit- ing that portion of the city, which is due en- tirely to the rapid development of John Tay- lor's modest venture in the pork packing and wholesale dressed beef business. THE OK THE ESTABLISHMENT. The site referred to is located along the Assanpink creek and the Bulvijlere division of Railroad, with a frontage oil 1'errine ami Assanpink avenues Taylor's packing-house refrigerator building, slaughter- ing establishment enttle yiiril and to- gether with'fifty-eight brick tenement-hoiiM'.s, 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, HO.v feet in dimensions, and the interior raugement.s combine every feature that inge- nuity and long experience have been able to devise for the rapid slaughtering of cattle and hogs and the curing of pickled and preserva- tion of fresh meat. The building is provided with two slaughtering departments, one for slaughtering-hogs and the other for slaughter- ing cattle and lambs, and a power engine, located in the basement, is one of the more important adjuncts that tend to facili- tate speed in this branch of the business. An idea of the magnitude of the enterprise may be gathered- from the statement that the hog slaughtering department has a capacity for slaughtering and dressing hogs a day, and the hanging room has a ca- pacity 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 num- ber of hogs slaughtered during the Fall and season amount to over head. And in the IIOUHO 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 stuiagr rmd of fresh meat hiw just com pleted, which w a model building for the pur- pose intended, and represents a large outlay ol e-apital. This building is UOx'iO feet in dimen- 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 TtiP tftfi wlllch has n capacity for storing .'fiT> tons of ice. IiKSt HII'TIOX (IF Till: KKKHIUKKATon. The main walls of the building are con- structed of brick and stone, and are two leet in thickness. The main walls, however, are weather-boarded on th" ovte'dr, wi'h ,1 ;r- spare between, am! 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- frigerator room registers above the freezing point the year round. The beef is conveyed to the refrigerator building by an ingenious over-head 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- frigerator building will be used for curing pickled meat, and no expense has Ix-en spared in preparing this portion of the building for af Wie -The 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 pickjed meats sent Quit by this house are, it is well known, unwirjuuiseU 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 trade- 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 enormoiM sum of one and half million dollars, and duriug the juist year it juuounted to At present only -about twenty-live people are employed alxmt the establishment, but during the hog killing season the number of employees is increased to seventy-live The house employs no traveling salesmen to drum up trade, relying .solely on the merits of its goods for ite busi- ness. The majority of the employees of this house have been connected with the establish- ment a number of years, and many-uf them have been provided with cornfoi table on easy terms by their employer. Out of the fifty-eight brick.dwelling bouses erected near his pork-packing establishment, Mr. Taylor has sold all but twenty-four on the instal- ment plan, principally to men in his employ.

While the mat- ier was still hanging fire, Jarrard says: I went to Mi lea Ross (this was a bitter hu- miliation 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 Carpen- di-r.. His reply was that he knew nothing about the transaction that Booiaem was doing the business ajid he could not step in and inter- fere.
