Tribunal Decides If Only Govern

1 Aliens of Opportunity to "Live.
WA4HLNGTOX, Nov. 1. On the com-
pfaint of a. cook in a Bisbee, Ariz.
lescaurant, tne Supremo Court today
annulled as unconstitutional the Ari
zona anti-alien-labor law. enacted into
law about a year ago by the vote of
me people under the initiative process
J he statute required employers of
uure man nve persons to employ not
loss than SO per cent qualified electors
or cnzens. .Mike Raich, an Austrian
cook upon being- notified he would be
discharged because of the law, appealed
to the -courts and when he won the
state atook the case to the highest
ci luunai. --.
Treaty Rights Considered.
The Supreme Court through Justice
Hughes, with Justice MeReynolds alone
ie?tnmiKi neia me Katcns constitu
tional rights, as an alien, to the equal
iTuiecuon ot tne law. as guaranteed
v iub urn amenament to the constitu
non, were violated by the law. and
hence decided he was entitled to an
injunction to prevent the state officials
trom enforcing the act.
The court announced that as a result
i'i us decision it was necessary to con
siden rights under treaties presented by
"It is sought to justify this act as
an exercise of the power of the state
to make reasonable classifications in
legislating: to promote the health,
safety, morals and welfare of those
within its jurisdiction," said Justice
JliiShes. "But this admitted authority
with the broad, ranee of legislative i.
cretion that it implies, does not go so far
is io mane it possible for the state to
deny to lawful inhabitants because of
,,1.elr.,race r nationality the ordinary
means of earning a livelihood.
- ItiKht to Live Set Forth.
"The authority to control immigra
tion to admit or exclude aliens is
vested solely in the Federal Govern
ment. The assertion of an authority to
deny to aliens the opportunity of earn
ing a livelihood when lawfully ad
mitted to the state would be tanta
mount to the assertion of the right to
deny them entrance and abode for in
ordinary cases, they cannot live', where
they cannot work.
"And if such a policy were permis
sible, the practical result would be that
those lawfully admitted to the country
would- be segregated in such of the
states' as chose to offer hospitality."

The principal matters which the
