792      REPORTS OF THE DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR. 
taken by the agency with reference to this matter during the remainder of
the fiscal year. 
Conclusion.-Owing to the short time I have had charge of Union Agency 
and as this annual report covers a period not within my administration, I
refrain 
from making general recommendations or discussing general policies. I do
urge, however, in addition to the desirability and necessity of the establish-
ment of public roads along section lines in the Choctaw, Chickasaw, and Semi-
nole nations, that proper provision be made for the continuation of Indian
schools after expiration of the tribal governments on March 4, 1906, and
for 
the maintenance of other schools until a Territorial or State government
is 
formed and appropriate legislation enacted in connection therewith. Should
such provision not be made, all schools now existing in the Territory, except
those maintained by private subscription and in incorporated towns, must
close 
on the above date. 
DANA H. KELSEY, United States Indian Agent.
