to tho Salmon's rocent record-breaking
cruise from the Atlantic coast to Bermuda
and return?a deep-sea voyage ^
Buch us lias had no parallel In the history
of under-water craft. The crulao
to Bermuda was not only tho first
cruise by a Bubinarlno to a foreign
port or ont of sight of land, but It
was the longest virtually continuous
run ever attempted by such a vessel.
The total distance covered aggregated M
nearly 1,700 miles and, as It happened, M
the little vessel encountered very

English submarines of about the same size is
the Salmon, which made tho coastwise run from
Dover to Dundee, a distance of r>12 miles, and tho
famous performance of the French submarine
I'apin, which on one occasion made a cruise of
1,200 miles. However, this French achievement
Is overshadowed by the Salmon's cruise becauso
not only was tho distance of tho latter much
greater, but it was an open sea performance,
!whereas tho Papln cruised along tho coast, and,
finally, the French vessel Is much larger than
the new American record-breaker, the Papin holing
of 550 tons displacement, whereas tho Salmon
is of but 320 tons displacement.
Tho Salmon, alike to most of tho submarines
i which havo lately been added to tho United
'states navy, Is a development of tho original
Holland type of submarine which first gave tho
Americans tho lead In this class of shipbuilding.
The Salmon is 135 feet in length by 14 feet beam
land Is a twin-screw boat, being driven on tho
Jnurfaco by two gasoline engines of 300 horsojpower
each and propelled when submerged by
electrical power vupplied from storage batteries.
Uy way of fulfilling her mission of destruction
the little vessel has four torpedo tubes equipped
to fire tho latest type of torpedo?that is, a tornoHn
17 foi>t in U>ni/th atuI IK ln<r*hna In /llntnnhip
having a radius of 4,000 yards and carrying an
explosive charge of 2oo pounds of guncotton. On
her cruise to Bermuda l ho Salmon carried a
crow of 21 men. but It was demonstrated on this
icruiso that under actual service conditions such
>a submarine can be operated, in so far as navigation
is concerned, by live men?two on the
4 Jbrldge and three in the engine room.
The Salmon Is capable of a speed of I t knots
Iper hour when running awash or on the surface
'of the water and 12 knots per hour when running
wholly submerged. Only three minutes In re quired
to change from surface running by gasolllno
engines to submerged running by electrical
Ipower. The ves?el has. on trial, dived to a depth
iof more than 200 feet without any sign of Htraln
'or leakage l>elng manifest anywhere on her steel
cigar-shaped body. A unique feature of tho equipment
of an up-to-date submarine such as tho
Balmon, Is a double periscope whereby, when
tho vessel Is wholly submerged tho officers on
'board can observo all that 1h going on at the
surfaco of the water. IClectrlcal ranges are proIvl

on tho behavior of the vessel.

Modern submarine boats ftro of tvso typos, tho
submerged ami tho Bubmerglblo. 'J'bo submerged
when lti light cruising condition moves with only
a small percentage of tho hull above tho water;
tho submersible cruises on tho surface much
like ?n ordinary torpedo boat, which It resembles
externally. Tho difference In principle between
tho two types Is slight, but in construction details
It Is very marked. The submerged boats
nro usually nearly cylindrical with pointed ends,
tho general shape being much like that of a
Whitehead torpedo. Submergence Is effected by
admitting water to tho ballast tanks or by means
of inclined rudders, or both. Submergihlo boats
navo xwo nuiis, ono inside 1110 other. ine outer
hull resembles closely that of the ordinary torpedo
boat, but has as few projections as possible
rising from tho general outlino, in order to prosent
a smooth surfaco when submerged, lusldo
this thero la a second hull of nearly circular
cross-section and as large as tho shape of tho
outer boat permits. To effect submergence water
first admitted to tho space between tho hulls,
find this brings tho boat to tho "awash" condition.
Further submergence Is effected by permitting
the ballast tanks to fill.
When or by whom was built tho first submarine
boat will probably never bo known. It Is
said that Alexander tho Great was Interested In
submarine navigation, while subaqueous attacks
of v jsels was studied at least a? early as tho
thirteenth or fourteenth contury. M. Dolpeuch
states that some English ships were destroyed
in 1372 by flro carried under water. In the
early part of tho seventeenth century subtnarlno
boats were numerous, and In 1G2I Cornelius Van
Drebbol exhibited to King James I. on tho
Thames n submarine boat of his own design. Uy
1727 no less than fourteen types of submarines
had been patented In England alone. In 1771
Day began experiments with a submarlno boat
at Plymouth, England, losing his life lit tho'
second suhmorgenco trial. In tho following 'ear
David Hushnell built his first boat, with which

Ragle's bottom was not sharp enough. Robert

the entire crew of eight men. In the samo
year several larger boats propelled by engines
woro commenced In ICurope, and these at intervals
were followed by others designed by llovgaard,
Goubet, Zede, Nordenfeidt, Tuck, Holland
and others, Tho French navy began experimenting
with submarine boats about 1SS5. The Gymnote
was built In 1888 and the Gustavo Zede In
1893. The Morse was commenced In 1894, but
remained uncompleted until 1899, pending addl- j
tlonal experiments with the Gynmoto and tho
Zede. In that year tho construction of submarines
was actively commenced, ten being
launched In 1901.
All London Is talking about the startling ex- ]
hlbltlons of speed given by a little boat on tho !
names ami at Bournemouth. The boat waa seen I
racing up and down the river at what seemed a j
terrific speed, darting along by leapa and bounds, j
Just as a shark chases a fish scudding between
wind and water. Thn Impression sho left was 1
not so much that of power, for sho was such a !
nilto of a tiling, only 2G feet long, aa of vicious j
and desperate energy. Crowds of people gathered
along the embankment to watch hor, won- J
ilortng whence In her tiny body this overpowor- j
Ing energy could come.
It baa since been divulged that sho is the Ml- I
ran da IV., tho latent experiment In skim boats,
or, as they are called technically, hydroplanes,
by tho veteran ICngllsh inventor, Sir John Thornycroft.
Compared with anything near her size, tho
Miranda IV. is certainly the fastest craft afloat.
Her exact speed is not known, but 6he has several
times done well over 34 knots an hour, and
hits decisively beaten the Columbine at Uourne*
mouth, the only other craft whVch could lay
claim to a record in her class. Hut It is not only
for this terrific speed that the Miranda IV. is
remarkable. Sho is tho most seaworthy craft of
