LANSING, Dec.. 7.- (P) - The
Democratic party of Michigan had
an issue today which it promised
to press to the limit in the coming
campaign, and had witnessed the
birth of a boom for the return of
William A. Comstock to the gover-
The state central committee was
on record as demanding an investi-
gation of liquor control activities. A
resolution was adopted Friday call-
ing upon Gov. Fitzgerald either to
order a grand jury investigation or
assemble the legislature in special
session to change the law or insti-
tute a legislative inquiry. Willianm A.
Seegmiller, of Owosso, a member of
the Democratic executive committee,
argued the resolution could have no
effect except to give the Republicans
a "chance to give us the horse laugh."
Proponents replied that Republicans
seized every opportunity to pillory the
Democrats in the newspapers, and
they proposed to do the same.
The resolution, sponsored by Rep-
resentative George L. Teachout, of
Flint, charged legislative intent is be-
ing abused. It proposed "in view of
the chaos now prevalent and recent
unfavorable attacks on the liquor
control commission" that Gov. Fitz-
gerald either order a grand jury in-
vestigation or a special session of the

Bromage Finds Separation O
N.Y. State And cit Impossible
City-State Thought To Be
Action To Be Legal
The "forthright demand that New
York City cut loose from New York
State and form a separate common-
wealth," urged upon New York City
residents for determined action by
Stanley Walker in this month's
American Mercury, was termed next
to impossible by Prof. Arthur W.
Bromage of the political science de-
Basing his beilef on the promise
that the New York State legislature
would hardly give its consent, which,
with the consent of Congress, would
be required for such action, Profes-
sor Bromage believed it not feasible
that New York State would surrender
as wealthy a taxable entity as New
"Nor would a city-state be de-
sirable," he said. "New York City
benefits directly and indirectly from
roads and health administration, for
example, in the hinterland of the
'hicks.' Without the taxable wealth
of their great cities our major states
would fall into inocuous desuetude,"
New York City's irritation toward
New York State is based on their be-
lief that the law-making body is
foreign, which it is, Professor Brom-
age said, but the rural areas on the
other hand have quarrel with the
state -for they are the state.
"This explains the urge for the city-
state today," he said. "New York
City is like the Irish. They want
more than home rule; they want,
many think, complete independence,"
Professor Bromage stated.
Prof. 'Charles E. Merriam of the
University of Chicago, Professor
Bromage believes, originated the city
-state idea when he suggested it for
Chicago year ago.
