JUAREZ-CELMAN, Miguel (wah'-reth-thel-mahn'), president of the Argentine Republic, born in Cordova, 29 September, 1844. He studied law in the university of his native city, and was graduated in 1870 as doctor in jurisprudence. He entered political life during the agitation of the religious question, and by his eloquence aided in the triumph of the Liberal party. He was elected to the provincial assembly, and later to the senate of the province, and in 1878 became minister of the interior for his province. In 1880 he was chosen governor of the province, and surrounded himself with the ablest councillors, without regard to party. He introduced gas and water in the city of Cordova, and gave a great impulse to the public schools. In 1884 he was elected to the national senate for Cordova, and took an active part in favor of the educational law, which was then under discussion. In 1886 his name was presented as a candidate for the presidency by independent branches of the different political parties. The canvass was one of the most hotly contested that had taken place in the republic, and on 11 April, Juarez-Celman was declared elected. On 12 October, 1886, he took the oath of office and assumed the executive. His inaugural message made a favorable impression, and thus far his administration has been progressive and favorable to the general welfare of the country, to national education, and to emigration, which of late years has given a great impulse to the agriculture of the country. The accompanying illustration represents the new government palace at La Plata, finished during the administration of Juarez-Cehnan.
