Wellsville Daily Reporter (Newspaper) - June 8, 1906, Wellsville, New York m .•r-.fe and Rep< resentative Mimr. ^ Watbtngton, June continu»- tion of the hearing by thehotue agri» euHuràl committee on Chicago me^t Inspao^ Mr. Nelli «aid he at first begat/making notes of ,the condition .. buj^ after several day«^ geeing no tóange in conditions froln day to'day, /he abandoned ttie practice. He felt ^ Justified In «saying the dirty floors'-was - » common condition. There were' some dirty rooms and «omie çlean rooms, but a clean: room seemed to be accidental and gave the impreasion that sanlta- - tion was not a matter that j^s looked after In those plants. .This,'incltided all thé îarge plants, . AgaIn~'Jir. NeiU was askcdi "ïou take direct issue with Mr. Wilson on the fact that these rooms l^Wiçré^ not cleaned?" ^^ "Yes sir, I do. There were floor« tbere that were black. Tliere was Jo ventilation. These / rooms' were hot 'chill' rooms. Those, without excep- - tioUj were the most "salisfactory part of the plants and no fault could be found," answered. Mr. Keii'U.: _ :_ „"But you did not mention anything credltabLOn^your report," remarked Chairman Wadsworth. f"Were you there simply to find fault?" "No, we understood^ that we were <o ascertain condition^ that needed legislative remedies," • answered Mr. Nelli. In reply to Reiwreaentatlve Lorimer, the witness Bald: "There were rooms —where food products were being put up that were not clean; In one particular room, 1 remember, there' were pools of water on~ the floor and the ^ girls hàd,.tó stand on boards, I am '' not prepared to say we did not find canning roma-that were not washed." Filth In the Cooking Rooms. Jjked about the cooking rooms, Mr. Nelli said one particular rOom was dirty arid he remembered walls, particularly in the entrances, that were sticky with dirt and a pillar that one could scrape jiirtjtro^ with a knife, '^'fir^e boning room, Mri "Néiiï "said he had seen dirt In this connectioti he took Issue with Mr. Wilson's statement. One Instance he remembered house. ' i He saw one of the men who had Just finished his boning walk ,over the dirty floor to a pile of meat on the floor, climb upon the pile with his feet, knees and hands, pick up a piece and, throw It 15 feet on the floor -to his bench, and as the dinner . signal Bounded at that "time he saw men climb up on their tables, get their lunches and sit down on their tables to eat. This he said was directly uu' der the eye of the superintendents. Asked again about the bone conveyor • by Mr. I.i)iHmçr, Mr. Nelli said the con-' veyor was covered with grease and black-with: dirt. ........ ..... _........ ° Chairman Wadsworth took «p the 'statement In the report: "We "saw meat shoveled from dirty floors Into rotten boxes iind pushed from room to room." "How do you knowrihey were rotten? IMd yoii test them?" "We fell theiu and smelt them. There-are iloors there," he continued,, "which all the seas çonld not wa.sh the dirt from." But yQ\i oould not pu^h a box of meat if the box was rotten," persisted Mr. Wadsworth. Representative Scott asked what he meant by "odor of decayed méats" In his. report. In view of the statement of Mr. Wilson that from a business propo-»itlon decayed meats could not be left -around." ----------------------- ''Il - waa certalljly.: an odpr _ of de-cayed meat." persisted Dr. Nelll. "'It may have been from the rotten meat soaked wood." "What do you mean by stinking?" asked Mr. Wadsworth. "One would infer you meant a horrible, rotten, stinking conditlonJî-- "That's what it was," said the witness, who suggested that ventilation might be thè" remedy. There was one odor from a fertilizer room and another ..from the^ meat rooms. Dr. Nelil's Definition of Stink. Dr. Nelll's. définition of "Stink" waa this: "When a thing smells so loud that you cannpt call it smellj^then it Is stink." , , This sentence In the report -was. read and questions asked: "In a word We saw meat shoveled from -filthy wooden troór^7?^iled~^n--table8- rarely--washed; ftom room to room in rotten box cârts in all Of which processes it was in the way çf gathering dirt, splinters, floor filth and the expectoration of tuberculosis and other diseased workers." " —^ .x. "How do you know it was tubereu- I lOBii expectoration r* Mked Chairman Wadaworth. "I thought so," anawered Dr. NeUI. Then he saldi he saw men there whom be believed to he tubercular. - The sUppinr of a hog into a privy was th^ subject of a colloquy hétween. the witness and Represe^ttatlve BrOoits Of. Colorado, which finally raised the Itsué of auestlons taking the form of j cross-examination. J Chairman Wadsworth persisted that j the. witness might "believe" the bog | was not cleaned, but he did not ■ "know" it "This was riot a case for scraping— | It was one for cleaning with^an anti-. septic fluid," replied í)r. NeÜÍ. j Chairman Wadsworth persisted thatJ^ this hog'case containeid the esàeiioé of Y the whole report' The statement waa positively made in, the report tha^ the ! hog was not cleaned, he said, when as ' a matter of fact Dr. Nelli had admitted ? he had rtot followed thè hog lo ascer-. tain ábwjüte^y the ^ he had stated. About Tuberculoais Spittle. Going back to the statement regarding the tuberculosis spittle on the floor, Mr. Wadsworth insisted that Dr. Nelli did not know, aa a fact that these people had tuberculosis, "The fact was Vestablished to my l,iind, ' peibúted Dr.- Nelli, "I can QRly say that I believe It." - "Oh. well, there is a difference between belief and knowledge," said Mr. Lorlmerr ^ : "Did you examine them?" "I observed themi'-"You say other diseased persons also —what Other diseases?" . "I am nbt ^filling to state." - "Well, doctor," said Mr. Lorimer, "you have made these statements to the world la a report which the president has sent to us and which has done Incalculable injury to this ia-dustry, and we want to know the facts." "I have made thi's report and am willing to stand on It." replied Dr. Nelli. "There were smells of medicine on these men .that you get in dispensaries for certain diseases." When other questions to draw out details were asked Dr.- Neill remarked: "If you will pardon me, I think jou, Mr. Chairman, and Mr. Lorimer are quibbling." Representative Bowie (Ala.) arose and protested that the witness was being put in the attitude of a defendant under cross examlnatlpn. The witness representeil "the government. iSLJg .....■ - . .'i-.;.- Ml. i\eii. cuuiiueuueu lue - govern-meat inspection.but would not commit himUlf on the state inspection^ It was a mistake to state, as did Mr. Wilson, he siid, that the houses ^ere open to the public.
