crulao from tho Atlantic coast to Hermuda

to Mermuda was not oniy ma moi
cruise by a submarine to a foreign
port or out of Bight of land, but It
was the longest virtually continuous
run ever attempted by such a vessel.
The total distance covered aggregated %
nearly 1,700 inllos and, as It happened,
tho little vessel encountered very
(rough weather during a conslderaole Jf
Ijmrt of the trip. M
Not only did this nautical excur- M
Jtelon establish a now record for vos- g
pels of the American navy, but it sur- B ^
passed all foreign achievements. Tho

knots, and the cruise of a flotilla of .

English submarines of about tbo same size as
the Salmon, which made the coastwise run from
Dover to Dundee, a distance of r? 12 miles, and tbo
famous performance of the French submarine
Papin, wbicb on one occasion made a cruise of
1.200 miles. However thin French Achievement
Is overshadowed by tho Salmon's cruise because
jnot only was tbo 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, tho I'apln being
of 550 tons displacement, whereas tho Salmon
Is of but 320 tons displacement.
Tho Salmon, alike to most of the submarines
i which have lately been added to tho United
; States navy, Is a development of tho original
Holland type of submarine which first gave tho
Americans the load In this class of shipbuilding.

a small percentage of tlio hull above tho water;
tho submerglblo cruises on tho surfaco much
llko an 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. Tho submerged boats
aro usually nearly cylindrical with pointed ends,
tho general shape being much llko that of a
Whitehead torpedo. Submergence la effected by
admitting water to tho ballast tanks or by means
of Inclined rudders, or both. Submerglblo boats
have two hulls, ono Inside the other. The outer
bull resembles closelv that of the ordinary tor
pedo boat, but bus aa few projections as possible
rising from tho general outline, In order to prosent
a smooth surfaco when submerged. Inside
this there Is a second bull of nearly circular
cross-section and as largo as tho shape of the
outer boat permits. To effect submergence water
first admitted to tho space between tho hulls,
and 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 la
Bald that Alexander tho Great, was lntorostod M
submarine navigation, whllo subaqueous attacks
of vessels was studied at least aa early as the
thirteenth or fourteenth century. M. Delpeuch
states that some English ships were destroyed
In 1372 by fire carried under water. In tho
early part of tho seventeenth century submarine
boats were numerous, and In 1021 Cornelius Van
Drebbol exhibited to King James I. on tho
Thames a submarine boat of his own design. Uy
1727 no less than fourteen types of submarines
had been patented in England alone. In 1774
Day began experiments with a subinarlno boat
at Plymouth, England, losing his lift? In tho'
second submergenco trial. In tho following year
David Hushnell built his first boat, with which
Sergeant Iajo attacked H. M. a. lCaglo in New
York harbor. Loo actually got under tho skip,

.nil the attack failed only because the screw by
vhloh the torpedo was to bo attached to tho
Sable's bottom was not sharp enough. Robert.
^il ton's experiments In Franco and America
il7'jr?1812) demonstrated that a vessel could
1)0 built which could descend to any given depth (
and rcascend at will. Plunging mechanism was ,
ilevised about tho middle of tho eighteenth cen- (
tury, but Fulton developed the vertical and horizontal
rudders and provided for the artificial supply
of air. A form of periscope existed in 1G92
and an improved kind was patented In 1774; In
1854 Davy still further developed it. Phillips'
wooucn boat on i-uKe i.ne was crusneu u.> mu
water pressure, and the same fate befell Hauer's
iron boat IMongeur-Marin at Kiel In lSf>0 In 1SC3
McCllntock and Howgato built a seml-submarlno
hand-propelled boat fur the attack on the federal
fleet, but It batik four times, each time drowning
the entire crew of eight men. In the same
year several larger boats propelled by engines
were commenced in Kurope, and those at intervals
were followed by others designed by Hov
gaard, (loubet, Zede, Nordenfeldt, Tuck, Holland
and others. Tho French navy began experimenting
with submarino boats about 18S5. Tho Gymnoto
was built In 1888 and tho Gustavo Zede In ;
1893. Tho Morse was commenced In 1894, but
remained uncompleted until 1899, pending additional
experiments with the Gymnote and tho
Zede. in that year tho construction of submarines
was actively commenced, ton being |
launched in 1901.
All London Is talking about the startling exhibitions
of speed given by a little boat ou tho
Thames and at Bournemouth. The boat was seen
racing up and down the river at what seemed a
terrlflr speed, darting along by leaps and bounds,
1nnt as a shark rluiHen a tlsh urml.l I ru' tietweon
wind and water. The JmprosBlon Bho left wan !
not so much that of power, for sho wiw Buch a
nilto of ii thing, only 2G foot long, n? of vicious
and desperate energy. Crowds of people gathered
along tho embankment to watch her, wondering
whence in her tiny body this overpowering
energy could come.
It hn.s since been divulged that she is tho Miranda
IV., tho latest experiment in skim boats,
or, as they are called technically, hydroplanes,
by the veteran Knglish inventor, Sir John Thornycroft.
Compared with anything near her size, tho
Miranda IV. is certainly the fastest craft atloat.
Her exact speed is not known, but she has several
times done well over 31 knots an hour, and
has decisively beaten the Columbine at llourne*
mouth, the only other craft which could lay
claim to a record In her class. Hut It Is not only
for this terrific speed that the Miranda IV. Ib
remarkable. Kho Is the most seaworthy craft of
her size that has been constructed.
