REMARKABLE FEATURES OF THE BUSINESS

ClaUan4 t larpaai Ever? Pauilf
Imgr Plaat 1 th Country
MUlloaia In rested.
The strict observance of the old Mosiac
law tn the slaughter of cattle la one of
the most remarkable feature In the busi
ness of the New York Butchers' Dressed
Meat company, which la making; a deter
mined fight asainst the American Beef
trust. In the moat modern and complete
abattoir In the world, which haa recently
been erected on the corner of Eleventh
venue and Thirty-ninth atreet tn New
Tork City, every head of cattle Is belns
killed by some one of nine specially se
lected Jewish rabbis. In strict accordance
with the lawa laid down by Moses for the
children of Israel before they entered the
Promised Land many oenturlea ajro.
Every head of cattle before belns slaugh
tered la examined by these rabbis, and
after death Ita entrails are also examined
for the leaat trace of disease, which, If
found, causes Its prompt rejection. On of
tha requirement of the Mosaic law Is that
the animal shall be In perfect condition
after death. For thla reaaon they are not
allowed to stun It with a blow on the
forehead from an axe, aa ia the custom
In nearly all of the other abattoirs. According-
to the Mosaic law, the killing must
be accomplished by one clean stroke of a
knife across the throat and the blood must
be allowed to flow from the wound natu
rally, so aa to leave the carcass In perfect
condition. If a nick Is discovered In the
knife after the operation, caused by con
tart with the neck bone, the animal killed
with It must be rejected.
The new abattoir plant In which this work
haa beirun was planned and built only
after experts had visited and examined all
rf the leading abattoirs in thla country and
Canada. They took the best features of
all the plants examined, and to them added
Improvements which probably make the
New York abattoir the finest plant of Its
kind In the world. Tha organisers of the
movement were encouraged to take up
this flght against the main business of the
Beef trust because of their success In the
, fat rendering business In thla city. Seven
years ago they were compelled to do their
own fat rendering because of the extor

The new abattoir building Is seven stories
high, fireproof, of steal construction and
composed of pressed brick and limestone.
In no part of It la there any wood or any
other material that might absorb blood or
molature and thus create a breeding place,
for germs. The floors are of concrete and
the wall are tiled with glased brick from
llar to roof. Each floor has ts toilets

to this time Is about $1,600,000.
Instead ot keeping the rattle as they
arrive In close hot pens on the ground, or
In cellars, as Is sometimes the case In other
abattoirs, the cattle are driven as soon
aa they arrive up Inclines to cattle pens
on the roof of the building, where they are
watered and fed and allowed to rest, so as
to get over the fever and heat of their
long Journey. Alongside of the Incline
for the cattle runs an elevated walk for
the men who drive them. An Ingenious
Instrument has been Invented for use by
the men. with which, by simply touching
them, they can give them a lli?ht electric
(hock and thus urge them forward. If
goads were used with spikes In the end
It would result In wounds which would
make the rabbis reject the anlmils.
Two large white steers named Jim snj
Ike, In honor of two men who have been
prominent In the new enterprise, have
been trained to lead droves of cattle up the
Inclines to the pens on the roof. They are
to accustomed to the work thit h:i
placed in front of the Incoming droves they
move steadily up the Incline, followed by
their unsuspecting victims. The floor of
the roof pens Is composed of vitrified brick
with tight Joints snd Is well dnlned. so
that It can be readily cleansed with water
from a hose. The manure from the roof
Is removed by means of an Iron chu lend
ing to metal bins on"the ground floor.
The Kllllag Floors.
The main killing floor. In the fifth storv,
has killing beds, which are all of blue
store, with tight Joints, thoroughly water
proof and nonahsorhent. The walls are of
enamel brick. The celling Is high and the
room Is light and well ventilated. After be
ing killed the animals are cut up In this
room and the different parts placed on
hooks, which are attached to overhead
trolleys and sent to the elevators, from
which they are lowered to the different
cold storage apartments on the various
floors. Py mean of steel chutes the heads.
j feet and peN are transported from the
killing beds to steel tanks on the first floor.
On the fifth floor Is the rabhls' dressing
room, the government Inspectors' rooms,
shower baths and lavatories. There are
fourteen killing beds on this floor and each
Is provided with a friction hoist for sling
ing the cattle and a douhle friction hoist
for dropping the animal and lifting It, with
the spreaders, ready to be split, washed
and taken to the chill room on the fourth
floor. All the hoists are electrically driven
by six fifteen-horse power electric motors.
Each killing pen has a rapacity of 3D0

cattle that can be killed dally In all pens

The fifth mexxanlne floor contains pens
for small stock, killing block and toilets.
This floor occupies only about one-half of
the area of the building, forming a gallery
on the north and west sides of the main
The fourth story contains tha fat picking
department, chill rooms and refrigerating
machines. There are on this floor three
patent air t'ltnlrrs. one KO-ton capacity
and two sixty-ton capacity, with an In
dependent fan and electric motor for
each, and all pumps, tanks and ammonia
connections. Each cooler Is enclosed In
sheet metal cunstruction and Is directly
connected to the air duct system through
out the cold storujet- rMim. Aa s,xn as
ku ui.ciric laua ai stdiled the air la
driven through the coolers Into the ver
tical air ducts, from which horizontal air
ducts branch out on each floor below.
These horizontal ducts are concealed be
tween the false ceilings and floorings and
allow the cold air to escape Into the rooms
below. Another system of ducts Is con
nected with the fan room, forming a com
plete circuit, and through the system the
warm air Is taken away from the storage
rooms, forced by the fans through the air
coolers Into the cold air ducts and thence
back into the cold storage rooms again.
By this system the chill room chills beef
to 3$ degrees and keeps the temperature of
all storage rooms down to 30 degrees when
tilled with previously chilled beef. These
cold storage or chill rooms are on the
fourth, third, second, first and basement
The general offices and directors' rooms
are on the second floor and the sales
rooms are In both the first story and base
ment Disposal of Offal.
The fat house and offal and blood dis
posal machinery are located in a building
adjoining tha abattoir pr.ip.er, just de
scribed. It Is a five-story and cellar brick
building. The basement is used for th
storing of hides, which are delivered from
the killing floor by a steel chute. The
second floor contains the appliances for
disposing of the waste products of the
slaughter house In the most sanitary man
ner. Two complete units have been In
stalled and space Is reserved for a third.
The great advantage of the unit system
Is that In case any one unit Is out of com
mission for any reason the process does
not come to a standstill. Each unit con
sists of two vertical tanks located directly
over a horizontal one. The vertical tanks
are the dlgcstors, in which the materials
are thoroughly disintegrated and are
cooked with steam, separating the fat from
the rest of the material, which Is known
as scrap After driving off the fat tne
scrap ia dropped to the tank below, dried
and converted Into fertilizer. In many of
the older establishments this scrap la
pressed before drying, and this often
causes a sertous nuisance.
The second floor contains two blood tanks
and a blood drier, operating on the same
principle aa the apparatus Just described,
converting the blood discharged from the
killing beds directly Into the blood tank
and being at once submitted to the cook
ing and drying processes. All the residual
gases and vapors that are not condened
by these processes are led off by ducts to
the grate bars of the furnace, where they
are consumed by Are.
The Power lloase.
The power house of tn Abattoir Is a
three-story brick and lime stone bulll

and pump room, with the vault under

One of the valuable concessions received
by the company from New York City is
a permit to drive rattle through West
Thirty-ninth street from the dock to Its
buildings and to put railroad gates across
the street, which may be closed at sucn
times as the cattle are being driven. The
first lot of Bteers that came In were brought

there may be In the ownership of th
