Vol. 3—No. 66. 4 pp., 20.5 x 28”, nine columns. Exhibits fold-marks and chipping of all margins.

Front and rear pages offer one column of print and eight columns of advertisement. And, interesting ads they are. For example the millinery advertisements from “Mrs. Colebrook Palace of Fashion,” who “wishes to inform the Ladies that she is now offering choice assortments of Hats & Bonnets, Including the favorite DOLLY VARDEN, At cost price to make room for FALL GOOD. Just Arrived…Black English Crape, Baby Hoods & Notions.” Also the “Z.C.M.I. Clothing Department”, which has secured “The exclusive sale for the Utah Territory, of the Celebrated BURLOCK DIAMAND SHIRTS.”

Interior columns feature lengthy and interesting coverage news of an Indian council between hostile Utes led by Chief Douglas and the government officers represented by General Morrow. The chief laid a number of complaints before the council. To wit:

”Failure on the part of the government to fulfil the promises made to the Indians.

The title to their country is still good, though much of it has been sold by the government.

The supplies furnished by the Govt. in goods and rations insufficient.

They have no place at the agency where they can trade their peltry for necessaries.

We want a good man there as a trader, with a large supply of goods, and also a good man as agent. Heretofore no agent has acted right with us.”

General Morrow replied that “While the government will give food and presents to good Indians and do all it can to add to their comfort, it will do all it can to punish bad Indians, who break their word and commit depredations on the settlements.”

The Salt Lake City Herald editorial page had this to say about the Indian presentation to Gen. Morrow: “With all that may be said against them, as low and degraded as they may be, no one can read the report we publish this morning with an unprejudiced mind, and not feel they speak honestly…”

Corruption of western Indian agencies was endemic during the Grant administration. This 1872 Salt Lake City paper provides an excellent glimpse of the 1870s western frontier as the Indians wars moved toward the Little Big Horn, Wounded Knee and a final close.

In protective sleeve, w/white card backing.   [jp] [ph:L]
