For three hours^ Mr.^Roosevelt lay or cruised in/the^Bnell of steel on or below the /BUfface of the Sound, and bad one^Ktne numerous acoldenrs wbicb ^ieem peculiarly common to submarines kent the Plunger from rising Charles W. Fairbanks now would be President of the United States. A fierce storm raged all the time the Plunger was out at sea. At one time the Plunger was submerged for fifty minutes, and there was not a sign of the craft to the few men on the little naval tender Apache, which was the only vessel near to give succor in the event of a mis­ hap. The Plunger waa put through every evolution of which she is capable, and as a climax to the trial a dummy torpedo traveled a mile, and was picked up by the sub­ marine when working her way Inshore. Mr. Roosevelt steered the submarine. He was the master of the craft as long as be was aboard ber. He pressed the button that fired the torpedo. He gave the orders for the movement of the machinery, and bis sharp commands brougbt the crew to the care of the periscope. Once safe again in Sagamore Hill the President expressed his delight with his experiment and said that Tie was greatly impressed with the boat and the wav in which she was handled The President's resolve to down in the submarine was reached after a conference with .Lieutenant Charles H. Nelson, the commander of the Plunger. Trie lieutenant assured Mr. Roosevelt that a trip in the boat and a descent into the depths of the Sound would be as devoid of danger as a ride In Manhattan Subway train. No manoeuvres were attempted until the vessel was well clear of the mouth of the bay and out in the open, where the full force of tbe storm was met The water where the trial was made averaged about forty feet In depth, which JLieuten ant Nelson regretted, explaining that it was a trifle too shallow to permit tbe best work of tbe sub­ marine. The Plunger waa dropped to tbe bottom aulckly, and once resting firmly tbe Lieutenant pro ceeded to explain all the mechanism to tbe President. This lesson took almost half an hour, and then tbe active operations were started In describing bis experience President Boosevelt remarked par tloularly on the possibilities of tbe submarine torpedo boajts in actual warfare. He related tbe details of hia experience with keenest pleasure. One result of the secrecy maintained by the President was that the Plunger had practically the entire .Long Island Sound to her- •elf.' There was scarcely a vessel. 1^,8 ght; all fijeasure crafl having jbeen drlven^to-aheijtej[.by the heavy Bjor 'mw'.-.- REAL ESTATE NEWS. -Transfers Recently Recorded in the County Clerk's Office.
