MONDAY, MAY 18, 189G.
Thoro litis boon much talk of
class lcgislntion o Into, nnd many
of tho bills before tho present leg
islature aro olaimod to bo objec
tiouablo if not unconstitutional on
that score. However, thoro is a
great tlifforouco of opinion, hero
and olsowhero, as to what really
constitutes class legislation.
Tho Supremo Court of Califor
nia in deciding a fow weeks ago
that tho Barbor's Sunday-closing
Act was unconstitutional,discusscd
class legislation at length in its
opinion in which tho law was very
ieverely ciiticlsed, and it should
be noted that tho nine Justices
composing tho Court were of tho
same mind. Tho objections to tho
constitutionality of tho Act woro
juito numorouB. It was first
urged that tho Act violated tho
very first section of tho Constitu
tion in that it took from tho citi
zen his inalionablo rights to earn
monoy by honest labor. A sec
ond objection was that tho Act
violated tho same Section in that
it granted special privileges
and immunities to all classes
of citizens except harbors. Thoro
was a further objectiou that tho
act was special legislation.
. On all points tho Supremo Court
found against tho law.Tho court did
not agree in tho contention that
the pnBsngo of tho law was within
the polico power of tho Legisla
ture. Such could not bo tho law,
said tho opinion, because tho act
took f rom a olaBS of oittzons a con
ititutioual right. A law restrict
ing tho hours of labor of barbers
urns doclarod to bo no loss unrea
sonable than would bo a statute
forbidding citizons to oat bread
before it was at least twenty-four
, Discussing other points involv
ed tho court said:
"It is not oasy to see whoro and
how this Inw protects labor from
tho unjust exactions of capital.
A. man's constitutional liberty
means moro than his personal
freedom. It moans, with many
other rights, his right freely to
labor and to own tho fruits of his
toil. It is u curious law for tho
protection of Inbor which puuishos
the laborer for working. Yot that
is precisely what this law does.
Tho laboring barber engaged in a
most resj)octuble,usoful and clean
ly pursuit, is singled out from tho
thousands of liiB follows in other
employments nnd told that, willy
nilly, ho sliall not work up
on holidays and Suudays aftor J2
o'clock noon. His wishes, tastes
or necessities nro not consulted.
If ho labors, ho is a criminal.
Such protection to labor carried n
littlo further, would sond him
from tho jail to tho poorhouso.
"How comoa it thnt tho legisla
tive oyowns so koonto dincorn tho
noedBof tho opproBsod harbor and
yet wns blind to his toiling
brethren in othor vocations?
Steam car and street car opera
tives toil through long and weary
Sunday hours; so do mill nnd
factory hands. Thoro is no Sun
day period of rest nnd no protec
tion for tho ovor-worked employes
of tho doily papers. Do those not
neod rest and protoction? Tho
bare suggestion of thesp consider
ations shows tho iujustico nnd in
equality of this law.
"In brief whothor or not a gen
oral law lo promote rest from la
bor in all business vocations may
bo uphold as within tho duo exor
cise of tho polico power, a law
such as this cannot. A law is
not nlways general because it op
orates upon nil within n class.
Thoro must bo back of that a sub
stantial ronson why it is mado to
operate only ou a class and not
generally upon all. unt in
a law such as this no reason has
or can bo shown why tho follow
ers of ono useful and unobjection
able employment should bo de
barred from tho right to labor on
cortnin days and no others.
When any ono such class is
singled out nnd put under tho
criminal bau of a law such as
this tho law not only is spociul,
unjiiBt nnd unreasonable in its
operation, but marks an invasion
of individual liborty, tho liberty
of free labor, which it protonds
Tho effect of tho decision, is to
declaro that barber shops can
keep open in California on Sun
days and holidays just as long as
on any other day. Early closing
can only bo brought about by a
general law affecting all classes of

Minister Damon's argument in
tho Senate today that a steady in
crease iu tho consumption of
puro and hoalthy wines liko

sequent decrease iu the amount of

especially when ho is able to
back it up with such figures as
are shown in tho following tablo
