Sample text

Between 1877 and 1910 the population of the border states of Sonora, Chihuahua, Coahuila, Nuevo Leon and Tamaulipas rose by 227 per cent. Mexico City, Guadalajara, Monterrey and Torreon grew even more markedly. These trends were essentially due to an increase of the native population. In spite of the efforts and hopes of the Diaz administration, immigration continued to be minimal and consisted mainly of upper- and middle-class merchants, investors and technicians. Salaries in industry were far too low to attract European workers except for a few skilled mechanics who were paid very high wages.

Diaz's call to arms met with some success, provoking an uprising that was more than local in nature. Diaz's brother, Felix, mobilized a formidable strike force in his home state of Oaxaca, consisting of state militia and even some federal troops stationed in the vicinity, and captured the state capital. A number of northern generals, foremost among them the governor of Nuevo Leon, Geronimo Trevino, assembled an army of several thousand men and seized large parts of Nuevo Leon, Durango, Sinaloa, and Zacatecas.

On a number of large estates, food-processing industries had sprung up, so that in many respects the northern economy was the most balanced in the country. Foreign investment, however, was far more important and preponderant there than in the south-east. Nevertheless, this was also one of the regions of the country where Mexican capital played an important, though generally subordinate, role in the development of the new industries (except mining) and cash crops during the Porfirian period. It was in large parts of central Mexico where, in overall terms, the economy underwent the least changes.
