Delanys Limited Phone 452 PROPOSAL TO ERECT ABATTOIR Those interested in the project re- ferred to have submitted to the Herald for publication the following state- ment: We understand that the Taylor Jlill- ing Company of this city intend to go j extensively into the livestock bnsi- [uess, and that recognizing the primi- tive sanitary arrangements in conncc-1 tion with the slaughtering of stock in vogue at the country slaughter houses, anil the danger to public health there- j by entailed, have decided to erect a i'modern abattoir on the east end of tlie city, adjacent to the Imperial Oil company's warehouse. It is the iuten- j 1 tion of the company to have the slaughtering carried out in the most up-to-date sanitary method, to have, proper sewer connections and to cook j the offal and burn all refuse, so that there will never, at any time, he any offensive odor emanating from the j plant, and further, that the citizens of JLethbridge will De fully protected ifrom contaminated meats, which, un- 'der the present system, is a very grave danger .to puolic health. The firm are in touch with a well i known firm in Buffalo who are manu- facturers of the most modern sanitary rendering and drying appliances. They are packing house equipment experts, i specialists on reduction apparatus and I nmsance eliminators. The system is I now used by veterinary colleges and experimental stations. The city of Paris, Texas, endorsed it fully, they having installed an outfit in their mu- nicipal" abattoir with satisfaction to everybody. Similar plants located in thickly populated districts have given no trouble whatever, as there are no objectionable.odors incident to its use. A rumor has somehow been circulated that the intention was to operate an j ordinary'slaughter house within tliei city limit's, and naturally the property holders in the Immediate vicinity have become alarmed lest the value of their property should be deteriorated. But when it-is bo'rne'in mind that the pro- posed site is on the extreme eastern limit of the city boundary, and that it is on what IB already established Industrial centre and recognized as trackage and "not residential property, and further, the great boon it will be to tho city to have its slaughtering done in the most perfect sanitary me- thod kliown, and directed under the eye of the dityHieaith officer, there should'be'no possible ground for com- plaint..
