This is a narrow platform. The
national question should not be a

Gov. Johnson's friends have noth

white i.obon faces of Massachu
setts have been among the first to
go to the rescue. 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
