CEBALLOS, Jose (thay-bal'-yos), Mexican soldier, born in the City of Durango, 15 March, 1830. He first came into notice during the revolution, favoring the plan of Ayutla. When Benito Juarez was president of Mexico, he gave Ceballos, in 1869, the command of a regiment garrisoning Yucatan, with headquarters at Merida. A few months afterward a revolt occurred among his soldiers, who divided into two parties. With those who adhered to him he overpowered the rebels in a three days' fight. Some merchants and property-owners appeared to have been implicated in the revolt, and Ceballos, without consulting President Juarez, had them shot. Next year he was appointed brigadier-general, and as such commanded the federal troops of the 1st division in the western states, continued the campaign against the bandit Losada, who had again gathered 10,000 Indians after his defeat by Corona at La Mojonera. Lerdo de Tejada having become president, Ceba-llos was empowered to effect the deposition of Camarena, governor of Jalisco, by force, which was accomplished after a bloody fight that lasted three days between the federal and state troops. Ceballos remained at Jalisco as governor and military chief till late in 1876, when Lerdo's government was deposed by General Diaz; then he joined Iglesias, who had revolted against Lerdo while chief justice of the Supreme Court. Iglesias, Prieto, and Velasco left Mexico, and Ceballos went to San Francisco, California, but soon afterward departed for Guatemala, where he found himself in reduced circumstances. President Barrios appointed him director of the military school. While in Guatemala he plotted a revolution against Diaz, but suddenly turned to the side of Diaz, went to Nex-ico, was restored to his rank, and given the governorship of the federal district, which m Mexico is the highest office after that of president. Cebalios is also a senator, and is noted for his enmity to the press, having imprisoned a number of journalists and .students in 1885-'6.
