Lies between the summit of the Rocky mountains on the west, and the states of Missouri and Iowa on the east, the parallel of 43° north latitude on the north, and the territory of New Mexico and the parallel of 36°30' north latitude on the south. An act for the organization of this territory passed the house of representatives, in Feb 1853, but failed to be acted on in the senate. It includes a part of the land set apart for the Indians, and the act provides that their rights shall not be affected by the organization, without their consent.
