Transcript of Copy of The causes of the Eureka Stockade

Eureka Stockade James Scobie was killed James Scobie was murdered outside the Eureka hotel by the owner. The owner was a former convict called James Bentley and was good friends with the police. The police, therefore, did not make any attempt to try and tell the truth and Bentley was found not guilty. This made a lot of miners very angry as Scobie was very popular among them.
