Abstract

By the Constitution of 1891 , Brazil's public land came under the jurisdiction or the states, although still following the fundamental rules of the 1850 Lei do Terras (Land Tenure Act). This provoked political reactions from the Brazilian agrarian elite, which resisted to compulsory land registration, due to its interest in continuing to appropriate vast public land areas. The present paper analyses the arguments of a representative of the Rio Grande do Norte agrarian elite, in opposition to his state's first land legislation. It thus has the intention of contributing to a reconstruction of the frame of mind which prevailed among Brazil's agrarian elites at the beginning of its First Republic.
