Description Excerpts concerning Utah from the Annual Report of the Commissioner of Indian Affairs - Courtesy of the University of Wisconsin Digital Collections. Commissioner of Indian Affairs T.J. Morgan discusses the integration of Indians into "national life", the process by which BIA employees are chosen, the goals of Indian schools, the government's campaign to promote farming among the Indians, the need to establish hospitals on Indian lands, the distribution of allotments, the landscape of crime prevention and law enforcement among Indians, and the construction and operation of railroads.
