MARTINIC B, MATEO. Safety in the magellanic rural area during the pastoral colonization period (1880-1910). Magallania [online]. 2012, vol.40, n.1, pp.7-20. ISSN 0718-2244.

Rural life in the Magellan mainland during the colonizing settlement period was characterized by its relative quietness, a fact that can be explained by the land mode of occupation (large areas) and its small population, scattered and dependent of the management system given the economic activity (sheep breeding) that facilitated the control over the movement of people. But also to the moral quality of the people who settled in rural areas, overwhelmingly peaceful and hardworking people. In considering this matter, the news of an alleged failed assault attempt to Ciaike country hotel in the early twentieth century, in which the nationality attributed to the assailants leads to establishing a possible relationship with what actually occurred in the western rural area central Patagonia (Chubut) by the same period, is dealt with. On that basis we compare what happened in two border areas of the Chilean and Argentinian Patagonia (central and south), characterized by the intercommunication of relevant national sectors, and consider the different life situations historically known and there possible causes.

Palabras clave : public safety; rural areas; colonization; Patagonia.
