Johnson have opened headquarters in Chi cago and have begun a campaign to make the Minnesotan the Dem ocratic nominee for President. Their chief claim for Mr.' John son is racial. They assert that be cause he is the son of n Scandina vian he can capture the Swedish, Norwegian, and Danish vote of Il linois, Wisconsin, Minnesota and the Dakotas. This vote is normal ly Republican. This is a narrow platform. The national question should not be a reason for or asrainst any man. If Gov. Johnson's friends have noth ing else to recommend him to the voters than that he could cap ture a big foreign vote because he is of Swedish blood, then Gov. Johnson is not of Presidential cal iber. Neither race nor religion should be elements of a Presidential cam paign. . Outside of this Gov. Johnson's friends are too late. If they had felt that their candi date had in him the material for a Democratic Presidential nomina tion, they should have begun their fight months ago. , It now looks like a movement to stringhalt Bryan. , Bryan has the nomination in his grasp. If he lives Bryan will be the choice of the Denver convention unless there is a revolution of pub lic sentiment, and we do not be lieve there will be a revolution. If Johnson was ever an available candidate his sponsors slept in their tents while the Bryan men were gathering in the delegates. in JNew xork otate there are forces behind the Johnson move ment that are not Democratic. They believe in the divine right of the Privileged Rich to exploit this country for their own aggran dizement. They want the government to exist as a money-making machine for themselves.

Chelsea has a large and active union, and several of it members are among the suf ferers. Therefore it is not strange that the State headquarters should be turned into a temporary relief station and that the usual Easter work of the flower mission should be augmented by this large draft upon the sympathies and helpful ness of the sisterhood throughout Boston and the immediate suburbs. But there is a special lesson with reference to the temperance reform which this disaster ought to teach the people of Boston who, with all their reputed learning, are slow to read the signs of the times. The first action on the part of the citv government on Monday morning was to close all the saloons m East Boston and in that part of Charles town contiguous to Chelsea, with the solemn warning that, if anv They knew acCLwer pnn l nrp. ae ravages of every QKlorror of drunkenness u-t added to t.hn hnrrnrs u$ existing.
