MEMORANDUM.

The National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws is made up of Commissioners created by the different states, meeting in conference and organizing themselves into a national body for the better accomplishment of the work for which its members were appointed by the states. The Commissioners, usually three from each state, are appointed under laws of the respective states creating them,

usually for five years, with authority to confer with Commissioners of the other states and recommend forms of bills or measures to bring about uniformity of law in the execution and proofs of deeds and wills, in the laws of bills and notes, marriage and divorce and other subjects where such uniformity seems practicable and desirable. The officers of the National Conference consist of a President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer and Assistant Secretary, elected annually. Sixteen Conferences have so far been held; the first at Saratoga for three days, beginning August 24, 1892, and the sixteenth at St. Paul, Minnesota, August 22, 24 and 26, 1906.

A complete list of the Commissioners of the several states, with standing committees, will be found in the following pages.

The time of the Sixteenth Conference was largely taken up in the consideration of the Uniform Sales Act, drafted by Professor Samuel Williston, of the Harvard Law School, and of the Uniform Warehousemen's Act, drafted by Professor Williston and Barry Mohun, Esq., author of a well-known work on this subject. They were adopted and it was voted to recommend them for passage by the legislatures of the several states.

Professor Williston was employed to draft an act to make uniform the law of certificates of stocks.

The Committee on Commercial Law was authorized to have the drafts of the Bills of Lading Act and of the Partnership Act printed and distributed in order to obtain expert comment and criticism to facilitate the perfecting of these measures before their final adoption by the Conference.

In accordance with the Constitution and By-Laws adopted at this Conference, the Commissioners will please advise the Secretary of the date of their appointment, specifying the law or authority under which the appointment was made and the duration of their term of office; also of any changes in the personnel of the respective State Commissions.

The Conference earnestly urges upon the legislatures of the several states, as well as upon their Commissioners, the import
