Six prominent men in widely different walks of life recently entered President Taft's private office in the White House, according to Chairman Ralph M. Easley of the executive council of the National Civic Federation. They were Secretary MacVeagh, John Mitchell, John Hays Hammond, Jeremiah W. Jenks, Samuel Gompers, and Mr. Easley himself. President Taft listened attentively to what Mr. MacVeagh, the spokesman, had to say, and said,—

"The securing of uniform legislation on different problems in all of our forty-six different states is one of the most important movements which can be undertaken at this time. With the present great development of this nation's industry, and with forty-six different states continually passing new laws on all sorts of important subjects, a uniformity in these laws is absolutely necessary. Either some plan for attaining such uniform legislation must be put into effect in the different states, or we shall have to have more centralization of power here in Washington. You have asked me to open a national conference on uniform legislation, to be held next January. I will gladly do so. Go right ahead and issue invitations to the governors of the forty-six different states, the presidents of the different law colleges and the different state bar associations, and push the plan along."
