I posted my transcription of the Travel Section of the Cowan Report here:

I found an easier way to download the report.
I open the archive.gov page containing the report (https://catalog.archives.gov/id/602984),
Just below the first page of the report and above the "thumbnails" of individual pages, on the left, there is a group of various tools. The first tool of that group is a sliding bar to enlarge or reduce the image. The last tool in that group is a download symbol. Clicking on that download symbol downloads the entire report in pdf format.
Below is what that screen looks like.

I downloaded the Cowen Report.
I clicked on Export, then selected PDF
I navigated down lower on the screen a bit and could see the PDF file. 
Clicking on the file opened it to a black screen with a menu bar at the
top where I clicked on the download icon.

The other day, a person posted about the Cowen report, written by a US
immigration judge who traveled to Russia in 1906 to investigate
various matters pertaining to the Jewish immigration from there. The
National Archives has the images of each page of the report available
