Governor follows up with second raid on Gold Coast.

The Gold Coast bosses might have been crooked but they weren't stupid.  Governor White sent the troops in on June 23, 1939 to shut down the gambling and drinking earned the Gold Coast its name.  The Governor knew the fine establishments of the Gold Coast had been raided before and would reopen and act as if nothing had ever happened.  Governor White thus conducted a second raid on the Gold Coast on Saturday night on June 25 only to find very little liquor to seize.   Here are copies of the original articles.
