LINARES, Jose Maria (lee-nah'-reth), Bolivian statesman, born in Potosi, 10 July, 1810; died in Valparaiso, Chili, in 1861. He studied in La Paz, was graduated as doctor in jurisprudence in 1835, and in early life began to take part in politics, being called to several important public places, including membership in the commission to form a code of laws for Bolivia. At the downfall of the administration of General Santa Cruz he was called by General Velasco to take charge of the portfolio of the interior in 1839, and afterward was sent as minister to Spain, where he negotiated the treaty for the recognition of the independence of Bolivia. In 1848, as president of the senate, he was called, during the absence of Velasco, to take charge provisionally of the executive, and he was soon the acknowledged leader of the "Rejenerador" party. He was several times presented as a candidate for the presidency, and finally in 1857 was elected by a large majority, His administration was one of the most energetic and honest that the country had seen. He introduced many reforms, and vigorously attacked the abuses that had crept into the public administration; but his course made him enemies, and in 1861 he was overthrown by a revolution that was favored by his own cabinet, and banished to Chili, where he died.
