THE INQUIRY INTO THE WELSH SUNDAY CLOSING ACT. So, the inquiry into the working of the Welsh Sunday Closing Act is to be con- ducted by three royal commissioners,and the regular tug of war" is anticipated between the supporters and opponents of the act. The Western Mail Commissioner, whose report has undoubtedly brought about the inquiry, will have done excellent service to his country if the agitation now fairly set on foot results in the repeal of the bona fide traveller clause which weakens the operation of the Act in such a populous and somewhat peculiarly situated d strict as ours. The geography of the Rhondda Valley is unsuitable to the bona fide traveller clause, but suits the bona fld,3 (?) traveller himself admirably. We do not question the main features of the Western Mail Com- missioner's report, but we do out a^tve with the conclusion arrived at. Lord Aberdare and the Western Mail say that because the Act is vi dated it should be repealed we say it should be made more stringent. The Customs Acts are violated, and,of course,they create smugglers, because, if there were no duties to pay, smuggling would be unneces- sary but would Lord Aberdare say that the Customs Acts should be repealed ? The law which forbids stealing is constantly violated, but would his lordship cite the fact as an argument for the repeal of that law ? -0-- a
