The wife of the late Mr. Fisher of the Parry Sound North Star, who was lost on the Waubuno, is allowed by a decision of the Court of Appeal, to proceed with her action against the Georgian bay Trans Co. The Company had formerly obtained an injunction from the Court of Chancery to restrain the action, and this was reversed by the above court. This of course only the suit of a private individual. The Government has taken no step towards enquiring into the causes that led to the loss of the vessel.

Why the Department of marine and Fisheries should hesitate in holding an investigation regarding the loss of the Waubuno on the Georgian Bay about a year ago is hard to comprehend. The matter is likely to come up in the courts on a private suit, but the public interests demand as searching investigation into the losses of our vessels in inland waters as takes place in accidents at sea. We do not believe that the investigation is being held back through pol;itical influence though some of the party say so -Toronto World
