HOLGUIN, Carlos (ole-gheen'), South American statesman, born in Novita, Colombia, 11 July, 1832. He studied in Cali and in a Jesuit college in Bogota. After the members of that society were expelled from Colombia on 18 May, 1850, Holguin continued his studies in the University of Bogota and was graduated as a lawyer in 1852. He has been always a warm defender of the Conservative party, in the tribune and the press, as a member of congress and as the editor of several newspapers, such as "El Caucano" (1857) and "La Prensa" (1866-'8), and has actively opposed the Liberal party of his country through the newspapers "El Filotemico," "El Porvenir." "El Tradicionista," and others. He has written works on international law and history, and essays on Lord Macaulay, Machiavelli, Byron, Warren Hastings, and Lord Clive, which are still in manuscript. Since 1881 he has been Colombian minister in Spain.
