May 19 1916 - Notable Passengers

The EMPRESS OF ASIA, commanded by W. Davison began a Pacific crossing upon sailing from Vancouver on May 19th, 1916. 

Sailing was delayed a day to await the delivery of mail from the East Coast. 

The ship carried a heavy mail consignment of 5,000 bags and baskets, 500 bags being loaded at Victoria.  Much of the mail was destined for Russia via the port of Vladivostok as the war in Europe and winter conditions in the White Sea had made the Trans-Pacific route the preferential method of delivering mail to Russia.

A large Saloon passenger list of 250 was reported.  Many of these passengers were Americans travelling to the Philippines.
