VERMONT MEAT SCANDAL
CATTLE CONDEMNED B7 COMMIS
SIONERS SOLD TO SWIFT CO.
State Auditor Claimed Meat Was Not
so Badly Diseased but What It Could
Be Cooked and Eaten Transactions
Sworn to In Three Affidavits.
Sciisntiontil charges concerning the
dinposul of beef from condemned cut
tle, sold to Swift's rendering plant at
Burlington by the stute cattle comia
sion have been made in affidavits by
Frank T. Hutchinson of Worcester,
Frank P. Whitney of Middlesex and
I'orley E. Pope of Montpelier. Mr.
Hutchinson, in bis affidavit, states that
42 cows of his herd, condemned after
being tested for tuberculosis, were sold
to the Swift Rendering company, dis
posed of as beef and sent to the cool-
ins room, An employe or the com
pany stated thnt the meat would be
inspected later and that which was not
affected bv the disease would be sold
as food. In his deposition Mr. Pope
states that all this was done with the
full knowledge of state officials.
Mr. Hutchinson's Affidavit.
I. Frank T. Hutchinson, of. Worces

State of Vermont, of lawful ago on
oath depese and say, That in Novem
ber, 10U5, my herd of eows were tested
bv the Cattle Commission of the State
of Vermont for tuberculosis, that forty-
two were pronounced infected with
thnt disense and ordered killed. They
were npnrnised and I was paid 80 per
cent, of the appraised value in accord
ance with the laws of the State of
Vermont. These forty-two cattle were
driven to Burlington to Swift's Ren
dering plant under the authority of the
C'nttle Commission, and I, in company
with Frank P. Whitney of Middlesex.
Vermont, went and saw the cattle
slaughtered.
All the cattle were dressed off as
beef is dressed, and the vnrious parts,
liver, tripe, etc., saved. The cattlo af
ter bcine dressed were put on the track
and run toward the cooling room. We
asked the head butcher what was to
be done with them and he said that
the inspector would be th;ro and stamp
those that were all right. We also vis
ited the cooler and found threc-quar-tera
of beef therein and had a talk
with the man in charge There were
two foreqimrters of beef and these had
chunks cut out "of them at the shoul
der. He said it was the worst case be
had ever had there. ne hindqanrter
was marked "Paul Germain, Burling
ton." I do not know what became of this
meat except that it was dressed off as
anv beef and started off towards the
cooling room, and further deponent
