UNEARNED INCREMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 16 November 1877
UNEARNED INCREMENT. During the late elections wehearda good deal about unearned increment, andto many of the ordinary readers of the different lo cal papers, it was a term which came upon them by surprise, not having studied Mill's Political Economy ; but now the subject has become well ventilated, and it is so well hackneyed a term that the loweit in tellect in our community has been well in formed of its meaning, and is thoroughly conversant with its full significance. It may be roughly defined for our present pur pose to mean the increased value of land tlhrough surronndingcircuinstances, and not in any way caused by exertion or outlay of labor or capital on the part of the owner. .Turning now to the consideration of the land in our parish, we find that the desire for unearned increment aniongst our towns people is very keen-so keen, indeed, that it almost overreaches itself, and is likely rather to defeat the ends that it seekq to attain. Land that realised by public aic tion, s...

Whilst at work something said or done by Sullivan excit ed the ire of Scott, and he rushed at him and with a knmife, inflicted a deep gash in one shoulder, and another on the cheek.
