PUBLIC WORKS AND THE LABOR MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 7 April 1866

PUBLIC WORKS AND THE LABOR MARKET. The tide of prosperity which South Australia is now enjoying commenced to flow some three years since, and has oiily sustained one partial ; and temporary check. The natimal revenue has almost doubled itself in the interim, and notwithstanding heavy increases of expendi- , ture the Treasurer's cash balances have gone on inereasing until they have approached verv nearly the amount of our entire bonded debt. There is na probability that this pros- j perity will decrease under a wise and liberal government,, but, on the contrary, new re sources and new enterprises are being con- 1 i stantly developed. As the result of this the j material wealth of the colony is increasing in i even a greater ratio than the national revenue, j j The extensive sales of Crown Lands, if they j : impoverish the patrimony of the State, increase ! the wealth of the people and the prosperity of i tbe country ; because production upon alienated I lands, is greater than on wast...
