p.2 The Comet - The only newspaper in Canada, Upper and Lower, which has taken an ill-natured view of the sad accident befallen this boat, is the Examiner. The question at issue is - did the misfortune result from insufficiency of strength in the boiler, or insufficiency of water in the boiler? The verdict of an unbiased, unprejudiced Jury, chosen where the accident was seen and felt, has declared that the latter was the cause; and this verdict ought surely to be satisfactory and convincing in a case that cannot be bettered by stirring up ill feeling and making the worst of a bad business.
