According to British circles today,
England prepared for Germany's sub
msrlne drive some time In advance.
She set ont new patrols and took steps
to see that llnera were armed.
Perhaps, It waa suggeeted, England
already has established gusrded lanes
of cruisers within the barred tone,
and, moreover, It la believed (by naval
authorities, Germany has lost sev
eral of her aubmarlnea, though on
this point the British admiralty never
will tell any talcs.
Some of Germany'a undersea craft
have undoubtedly put back to their
base before now, having used up their
supply of torpedoes. This may ac
count for the apparent decrease In
activity, though there la still another
possibility that some of Germany's
efforts are bejng hidden toy the Brit

San Francisco, Feb. 10. Thomas
J. Mooney will be sentenced to death

lowing bis conviction of murder, in
connection with the preparedness pa
rade bomb which killed ten persons.
In returning its verdict after six
hours deliberation last night, tbe
Jury declined to Include a recommen

has no alternative but to send the
convicted man to the gallows. .
In the midst of the excitement
which swept the city following the.
verdict, District Attorney Flckert j
created a new sensation today when
he announced that be has a "con-
fession by a'co-consplrator," reciting
the details of 72 crimes In which, he
asserted, nearly all of the defendants,
