Associated Press Dispatches. I New Yobk, April 28.—The General Executive Board of the American Fed eration of Labor, after p. protracted ses sion this afternoon, issued a manifesto tonight signed by President Gompers. After denouncing all who do not yield to his views as enemies of those who work, Gompers closes thus: "The Executive Council of the American Federation of Labor, having selected the United Broth erhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America to make a demand for the en forcement of the eight-hour day, I ask you to refrain from any sympathy strikes Rather remain at your work and aid the carpenters and joiners to win their contest. To the carpenters and joiners my advice is to de mand and insist upon the en forcement of the Jeight-hour work day. Demonstrations will be held May Ist. Turn out in vast numbers and by your presence manifest your unalter able determination to have the eight hour work-day enforced, though by one trade at a time, yet for all, as the ulti mate result. Allow no one to provoke you; refrain from all violence; let the watchword be the enforcement of the eight-hour work-day; be firm, peaceable and positive. The Situation at Chicago. Chicago, April 28.—Non-union men in considerable numbers are coming into Chicago.

Rail way switching at the yards is done by members of the Switchmen's Associa tion, and it was said tonight that if the packing-house employees go out, the switchmen will lend assistance by re fusing to handle cars for the houses in volved. Such a move would be a crip pling blow to the packing interests. The yard-master discredits the report. As the yards are private property, the Chief of Police has made arrangements, as soon as the strike is declared, to take com plete care of tne stock-yards district, and clear them of everybody who has no business there.

Answer of the Defendants to the Plaintiffs' Allegation. San Francisco, April 28. —The princi pal defendants in the suit brought by Frank I. Symmes and others against the Comstock Tunnel Company et al. in the United States Circuit Court for Nevada, today filed their answer at Car son City. It is quite a voluminous doc ument, and sets forth minutely tbe his tory of the reorganization of the Sutro Tunnel Company, through the efforts of Theodore Sutro, of New York. In July, 1887, Theodore Sutro made a favorable settlement of the mortgage of the McCalmonts,on the condition that the money should be paid on or be fore January 1, 1888. About one million dollars was required, and to raise the money Sutro proposed to issue income bonds of the company to be taken by the stockholders on the condition that the entire amount be raised by Febru ary 1, 1888. Only about $400,000 was subscribed up to that time, and it ap pearing impossible to get all the stock holders to subscribe, Sutro succeeded in getting a syndicate of capitalists headed by the Sehgmans to guarantee half the bonds. The plan was then changed and the stockholders who had previously subscribed conditionally, came in under the new plan, which was to purchase the mortgage from the McCalmonts and fore close in the interest of the subscribing stockholders and syndicate, unless all the stockholders subscribed. They were, it is claimed, given the fullest op portunity and urgetl by circulars and advertisements to do so, but only about three-fourths came in and it was neces sary to foreclose. This was done and the property was transferred to the Corn stock Tunnel Company for the purpose. The answer states that the widest pub licity was given to the plan, and that this plan was the only method by which foreclosure in the sole interest of the McCalmonts could be prevented. It further states that the trustees of the Sutro Tunnel Company and syndicate, as well as Theodore acted in good faith in the matter. All charges of at tempt to defraud any of the stockhold ers, or to take any unfair advantage, are specifically denied. It also states that the three plaintiffs are the only stock holders who have raised any objection to the course pursued, and that they have not shown themselves entitled to any relief whatever, and that they in fact assented to the plans. Edmund Tansky, of San Francisco, and W. E. F. Deal, of Virginia, are so licitors for the defendants, and Pillsbury & Blanding, also of San Francisco, and Wheeler H. Peckham, of New York, are of the counsel. Michael Lane Was Insane. San Francisco.

The Machinery of Death Nearly Adjusted. Great Interest Manifested in the Fatal Experiment. The Prisoner Remains Calm and Con tinues to Study the Bible—Ha Makfts His Will. Associated Press Dispatches. 1 Auburn, N. V., April 28.—Th'; latest news about Murderer William Kemrnler is that he is still alive, and no one but Warden Durston knows definitely at what hour, or on what day, the electri cal shock will be sent through his body. It had been almost settled that the exe cution was to take place Tuesday, but the machinery of the death room was not in final order when the working hours were over this evening, and it is believed the arrangements will not be completed until late tomorrow. Warden Durston said this afternoon that the execution would certainly not occur during the next twenty-four hours. Several scientists and law officers, who have been invited to witness the execu tion, have arrived here. Absolutely no newspaper men will be permitted to see it except the representatives of the two press associations. This afternoon Warden Durston showed to a number of reporters the different electrical devices and chair in which Kemrnler will be electrocuted. It is the same as has been described re cently at length in the press. There is a movable piece at the top supporting an electrode cap which will fit on the victim's head, and a wire passing down the back connecting another electrode, which will be placed at the base of the spine. Saturated sponges will be placed between the electrodes and the body to prevent burning. The victim will be firmly strapped in the chair and a broad leather strap will cover his face, except the nose, thus concealing the death agony. It is under stood the current used to cause his death will be between 2,600 and 2,700 volts in force, enough to supply 1,000 lights. Kemrnler has passed the day in about the same way he has the last week. He , has read the Bible as well as he could and listened to his religious advisors, Dan McNanghton, Dr. Houghton and Chaplain Yates. He made his will to night, giving a pictorial Bible to Keeper McNaughton, pigs-in-clover puzzle to Rev. Dr. Houghton, a testament to Keeper Wemple and a slate covered with autographs to Chaplain Yates. DISORDERS IN AUSTRIA. The Jews Unmercifully Persecuted—Many Serious Riots Reported.
