I'm not sure what you mean. Dispatches like this were common for people to track sailings and berthings and people in the only way possible then, the newspaper.
The RMS Empress of Russia was an ocean liner built in 1912-1913[1] by Fairfield Shipbuilding & Engineering Company at Govan on the Clyde in Scotland for Canadian Pacific steamships (CP). This ship regularly traversed the trans-Pacific route between Canada and the Far East. This Empress was distinguished by the Royal Mail Ship (RMS) prefix in front of her name because the British government and Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR) had decades earlier reached agreement on a contract for subsidized mail service between Britain and Hong Kong via Canada.

In short, the Empress is not an Empress, but a ship.
