p.2 The Passport - The through line steamer Passport leaves for Toronto and Hamilton on this Saturday evening. The boat has been thoroughly repaired since the unfortunate collision, and the job has proved an expensive and tedious one. A fortnight's skilled labor of as many men as could be employed day and night has been expended upon her, and she is now as seaworthy as ever. The boat is a safe boat undoubtedly, and so is the Empress, so far as condition is concerned; but as yet nothing has been done in the way of investigation calculated to inspire the confidence of the travelling public, which was greatly shaken at the occurrence of an accident involving culpable negligence somewhere. We are glad to announce that the line is again in full equipment, but we should have been more pleased had we it in our power to announce that the whole matter of the collision had been investigated in the interests of public safety, and such action taken as would afford an assurance that none but officers of the highest skill and prudence are employed. It is due to the public, to the line, and to the officers, that such an investigation should be had.
