Mr. Cotillo offered a resolution, in the words following:

Whereas, The citizens of the city of New York, numbering nearly 6,000,000, constitute a community district socially and industrially from the inhabitants of the rest of the State;

Whereas, Though containing nearly sixty per centum of the population of the entire State, the city of New York has less than forty per centum of the representatives in the Legislature, and though paying seventy-three per centum of the expenses of the State, is the recipient of State benefits outrageously dispro portionate to its contribution to State expenses;

Whereas, Because of its insufficient representation in the Legislature it has been discriminated against for many years by the enactment of laws prejudicial to its interests and destructive of its municipal autonomy;

Whereas, It is now threatened that the years of discrimination are about to culminate in a policy which is intended to deprive it of the control of its transportation system, to destroy its vested contractual rights and to abrogate its constitutional right to make contracts and conduct its business as the welfare of its citizens may make necessary;

Be it Resolved (if the Assembly concur), That the Congress of the United States be and it hereby is memorialized and the members of Congress from the city of New York together with the Senators from this State be earnestly requested to take such congressional proceeding as shall with the greatest possible despatch provide for the establishment as one of the United States of a new State to be known as the State of Manhattan, and to be erected on the territory now embraced within the boundaries of the city of New York;

Be it further Resolved, That a copy of this resolution be forwarded by the Secretary of State in due form to the Congress and to the Senators from this State and to each member of Congress from the city of New York.
