U.S. Supreme Court

Petit v. Minnesota, 177 U.S. 164 (1900)

Petit v. Minnesota

No. 194

Argued March 16, 1900

Decided April 9, 1900

177 U.S. 164


Section 6513 of the General Statutes of Minnesota for 1894 provides that

"All labor on Sunday is prohibited, excepting the works of necessity or charity. In works of necessity or charity is included whatever is needful during the day for the good order, health, or comfort of the community; Provided, however, That keeping open a barber shop on Sunday for the purpose of cutting hair and shaving beards shall not be deemed a work of necessity or charity."

Held that the legislature did not exceed the limits of its legislative police power in declaring that, as a matter of law, keeping barber shops open on Sunday is not a work of necessity or charity, while, as to all other kinds of labor, they have left that question to be determined as one of fact.

The case is stated in the opinion.
