JUNE in, 1931 COURIER NKWS Replica of Old Federal Hall Will Rise Where Sublrcasiiry Stands In New York Justice Brewer in 1892 Ruled Thai This [Religious Nalion. s a WASHINGTON, June 10. iUPi — Any doubt of i'-.c ChriMianity of Ihi'' United S'.ales as a nation, or of :h? religiousness of its inhabi- tantp hiii been dispelled by 'th:United States Suprcma CDI.!(. Tilt fact Ilia', the nation )-\: been judicially uronoimced Chrii- tia:i 0:1 P'eh. M, 1392. was rc.'.'jnliv recalled by Justice Rutherlund in the Blati:l-Miicin(os!i casrs. In deciding that Professor Donglas Clyde Macintosh, of Yale University, and Mar:? Averill B!ar.:l, New York City nurs?, both Canadians, could not become citizen;; because, of conscientious objections to war, Sutherland ssid. "We nrc a Christian pi-oj>]e" and br.cko-J his assertion l:y referring to the cast o! Holy Trinity Church vs. 'he United Slates. The ca.'.e cited was decided by Justice Brewer in 1892 and involved an interpretation of tr.e alien labor laws ol tlmt time. Alien Congress had passed a law which prohibited the importation of aliens under contract to v:ork here. Numerous large concerns were making a practice of importing inishkillcd labor and in this way were breaking the domestic labor market. The law was stringent and exempted only 'professional actors, artists, singers, lecturers and domestic servants." i Trinity Church in New York had made a contract to bring lo IhU country the Rev. E. Waluole Warren to serve as its pastor. Not being in one of tl'.e exempted classes, the government fOiicht 10 set aside tl:e contracl and was defeated when the Supreme Court ruled pw.-h a law wor.ld lie an acl against religion. So lo interpret the statute would violate tile spirit at the Consiiiu- licn. since "No purpose of action against religion con Ije imputed to any legislation, slate or national because this is a religious people,' he found. Brewer hacked up his findings by tr.icins the history of lhe country. Christopher Columbia's commission, lie said, was from "Ferdinand and Isabella, by the grace o! Cod. King and Queen of Castile, etc.." and read "il is hoped Ihat by God's assistance tome of the continents and islands in the ocean will be discovered." Kaleiffh's Grant So. (CD. he found. Sir Walter Raleigh's first colonial Brant- from . "Queen Elizabeth, by the grace of Go:!, of. England. Fraunce and Irc- lande. quren« defender of (ho faith" authorized him to enact colonia 1 . laws 'provided (hey he not against the trde Christian faith nowe professed in the Church of Enslamle." The Virginia charter, he "continued, was "lo projiogntr (he Christian religion to such people as vet live in Darkness and Miserable Ignorance of the True Knowlc:!^ nnd Worship cf God" nnd to "bring (he Infidels nnd Savages living in (hos? parts to Human Civility." Brewer ruled thai these references to God and the Christian re- )1e:on and the current observance of the Sabbath, through Sunday laws and church attendance, the form of oath and numerous oth°r practices in official life served to "affirm and reaffirm Ihat this i = a religious nation.''
