FRIAS, Felix (free'as), Argentine publicist, born in Buenos Ayres in 1820; died in Paris in 1881. Early in life he became an opponent of the dictator Rosas, and in 1838 was obliged to seek refuge in Montevideo. There he became acquainted with General Lavalle, and accompanied him in 1839, as secretary, on his invasion of the Argentine Republic. When Lavalle was assassinated on 9 October young Frias rescued his remains and carried them to Bolivia at great risk. He then engaged in literature in Chili, continued his opposition to Rosas, and after the overthrow of the dictator in the battle of Monte Caseros, 3 February 1852, returned to his native country, where he became editor-in-chief of "E10rden." He was afterward minister to Chili, during the protracted discussion of the boundary question between the two countries, served several times as deputy to the National congress, and once as its president. Frias dreamed of an intimate alliance between the Church and liberty, and his opinions savored of asceticism. During the serious conflicts at Buenos Ayres, caused by the presidential elections of 1880, he made strenuous exertions to avert civil war, and after the attainment of his object retired to Europe to recruit his health. Among his historical works are "La gloria del Tirano Rosas."
