On Board the Martian Liner by Miles J. Breuer:
Science Fiction Inventions, Technology and Ideas

"WHEN space travel is an accepted matter — who knows but that it might be soon — there must undoubtedly be much room for adventure — not only what we know would be incident to the danger of moving through space, or what would be due to the unknown factors that might be met with on landing. Because a man is going through space, it is not a foregone conclusion that he will become all that is noble. Neither will mysterious offenses be confined to the earth. But we can’t send a detective on every ship. Dr. Breuer has a much better plan and amply proves the efficacy of his method in this thrilling short story. There is definite literary merit in it and scientific interest."
