Appeal to Congressman.
Congressman George W. Cromer was visited Thursday by a committee from the Hemingray glass factory, of which James Burk [sic] Burke acted as chairman, and was requested to write a personal letter to President McKinley, asking for better treatment of the miners confined in the stockade at Shoshone county, Idaho, and for a speedy trial by the civil authorities.
Mr. Cromer expressed his sympathy with the imprisoned men, and announced his readiness to write to the President concerning the matter immediately.
