You don't mention his birth year, but might this be him ... indexed 

Name:     James Neish
Gender:     Male
Estimated birth year:     abt 1576 .......... abt 1876
Birth Place:     Scotland
Age:     47
Date of Arrival:     Jul 1623  .... 1923
Port of Arrival:     Vancouver, British Columbia
Port of Departure:     Sydney, Australia
Ship Name:     Niagara

The arrival was 6th? July 1923 and he was returning to wife Euphemia 
Neish at 1687 Georgia street, W. Vancouver.  He was a "Fitter"  born in 
Scotland, emigrated to Canada at Montreal in 1905.  He departed 
Vancouver 27 May 1923 with the intention of settling in Australia.  His 
passage from Australia was paid by "Freemasons, Sydney, NSW."  He claims 
a crippled leg, which might mean he was injured ??

I checked all the other online records at Ancestry and I am pretty well 
convinced that this is him
