GODFREY'S CREEK. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 13 August 1869

GODFREY'S CREEK. The election went off very qunet'y during the day. There was nothing to indicate that an important event was about to be gccomplishl:l. Most business people looked with confidence to the return of \Ir White law. The resu't of the poll however showed that the calculations were incorrect : Coyne ... ... 50 Whitelaw ... ... 48 "Mr Coyne, on tha result being deolareo, briefly stawed that he felt proud of his posi tion, and expressed the hope that he wou!d deserve 'heir future confidence. Mr Whitolaw stated that he had the mis fortune to be rejected.. Still he had a duty to perform for the people oj? df f oy's Creek. As an outsider, and ;,a a :journalist;, he, could and would protect their 'interests more eflfctually than their repre·sinta'ive presibly could. Altho0gh not elected h. would do all in his power for the advince mont of Godfrey's Creek.

DURHAM GULLY, SPRING CREEK. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 20 August 1869

DURHAM GULLY, SPRING CREEK. This lead was laid off on Wednesday last by Mr 'ickery. Thirty-five feet frontage, with one claim overlapping another, has produced a compio'e net-work of confusion,. and sown the seed of another lharves, for our lawyers. Thorn is not a single claim on the lead that there is not some dispute about. How long is this state of things to be on dured ? Will the miners continue to spend their hard earned money in expounding the incomprehensible leechworth mining bye laws ? A petition lhas been started on the Durham lead for separation from the Beech worth Board. Let Godfrey's andAlexandra support the movement. The only chance of relief from this everlasting, perplexing, vexatious and expensive system of working" our mines is to get the district annexed to Sandhurst. There is more law in one month in our comparatively small community about bye-lnws than thlere is in Sandhurst in a year. There are about 200 miners on the lead. Nenrly every shaft is producing pay ...

?- ? ? .?i D E-Y '$ O, RE E'K:. (From a Correspondent.); Mining matters in this place are about the. same as when I last wrote.. The. generall cry of the miners here is for a mining board; for their own, district. They one and all say, that they will not be -made slaves of by the. Beechworth Mining Board. The wrongs. that are inflicted by that Board have been, before the public long since, and indeed, the. Minister of Mines is not held in the highest; estimation in this district, and the name of " fossickers" that he applied t9 the miners of, Spring Creek has done him no good, There. are a great many Bendigo miners here and; they all say that they will remember him at, the next, election, . It strikes me forcibly that he will have to fossick himself for,. another billet from that of Minister of Mines,. and it. will be a perfect God-send to the. miners of this country that a change of Ministry will take place, and a new Mining. Statute (for the mining laws will stand a. revision). Th...
