Thh Hague, Nov. 29 — It is officially stated today that Kruger will go to Cologne, Saturday, from whence he will proceed to Berlin, arriving there Tues day.

London, Nov. 29.—Interest in Lon don's school board election which takes place today rapidly increased as the time for the polling drew near nnrt the indica tions are that the contest will be as full of interest and excitement as have its predecessors of former years. As the school board is one o£ the most import ant bodies chosen by popular vote in the metropolis the contest is usually an ex citing one and at times the campaigns have been extremely bitter in conse quence of the religious questions in volved. The electors in the school hoard con tests are designated as moderates or pro gressives, the former, generally speaking, beiug the churchmen and conservatives, and the latter the liberals and noncom fort ists. The moderates, largely under the influence of the church elements re sent everything that tends to increase the expense of the secular schools, as they have to support church schools, such as are built and administered by the school !»ard. They are opposed to the common schools on principle except in the most rudimentary branches of education, and they have perpetually before them the threat of the progressives to introduce, as soon as possible, high schools into the public regime. The present board has buslt many new schools and spent lav ishly in the way of improvements under progressive direction with the result that today the London elementary school system is in finer condition and much further advanced than ever liefore It is the hope of the moderates to defeat the progressives at the polls today and thereby prevent the present system of educational development from going for ward. There are 95 candidates in the field for the 55 seats to lie filled, 43 of the nominees lieing present members of the lioard who have been renominated.
