Farmer and Former Em
ploye of Company Contra
dicts Testimony of Dozen
Witnesses for Defense.
The slaughter house of the Central
Dressed Mont company, concerning
v hlch evidence has been given by
nearly a dozen witnesses for the past
week, is as sweet smelling; and as
clean and delightful a place as can be
found up and down the Boise river,
according to evidence produced by the
plaintiff In the libel ease against the
Capital News, In which the Central
Dressed Meat company demands dam
ages to the amount of $10,000.
This is the evidence given by George
Henry Walker, a butcher employed
there for some time, of Arthur G.
Winston, a farmer who passed by the
place and could smell nothing but a
few burning bones and of O. G. Gib
son, a stockholder and director of the
plalntilT company, "ho swore that he
.lid not find the smells emanating
from the place at all objectionable to
him, but who informed the attorney
for the defense that he was not fa

there. He said there was a toilet
house just south of the bunk house.
Tlie rendering room, he said, was in
good condition while lie- was there. He
said there were two windows and
both were screened and a door, also
screened. He said there was a ren

the slaughter house. He said that
Deputy M. S. Parker gave permission
to them to slaughter out of hours pre
scribed by law.
Arthur G. Winston wae their next
witness. He lives five miles west ot
Boise. He was at the slaughter house
Aug. ,2 and went through the yard,
lie saw the offal pile which he said was
about 8 by 10 feet and 12 to 18 inches
deep. It was burning and he could not
notice any stench and saw no flies. He
•was within 8 or 19 f et of It on a foot
path. He walked through .he yard and
noticed It was very clean with no dead
chickens or carcasses. There wore no
dead calves there. The branch of the
river at the slaughter house runs Into
the south channel of the river back of
H. D. Goodman's ranch and then ;
through the ranch of witness and thej
two channels came together Just below a
Pierce park. He never noticed any !
stench at his place and no more g ree h
flies than can be seen along the river j
any where. I
On cross-examination he said there]
ere big green flies all up and down,p(,
the river but none at the offal pile. He,
snid no one asked him to testify hut >
that, he came to listen to the testl
mony and was summoned as he arrived. I,
He first told D. H. Eastman nbout j
what ho knew of the case. He said un'
the offal pile there was nothing but a|
few bones almost entirely burned. He
noticed no different odor In or about
the slaughter house premises than he'
noticed elsewhere along the river out
side the burning bones. It was Just os
sweet and free from odor as any other
place along the river aside from the
burning bones.
