THE BOERS REPORTED IN FINANCIAL STRAITS. AND THE CONSEQUENCES. A prominent banker of New York, with impor- tant Amsterdam and Paris connexions, has assured the Manchester Guardian's correspondent that his private information is that the Boers are in great straits for money, and are absolutely unable to place a loan. The supplies they had on hand at the beginning of the war are, he understands, nearly exhausted. Besides buying material of war, they have had to expend enormous sums in paying the salaries of foreign officers in the employ of the Transvaal, and the latter refuse to serve one day after their pay is stopped. According to the correspondent's informant, banking houses having the closest relations with the Boer Republics are of opinion that all the English have to do after relieving Ladysmith and Kimberley is to maintain a rigid blockade of all the frontiers, and the Boer cause will collapse for lack of funds.
