“Hacienda del Apantle de la Santa Cruz, recuerdos de sus alrededores”
These were years of great changes in the state. In 1881, the México-Cuautla railroad was inaugurated and on the 5th of December, Miguel Salinas Arriaga founded the Pape Carpentier Institute, to which the culture of the state of Morelos is indebted. Later, on the 5th of February, 1882 the Profirio Diaz theatre was inaugurated in Cuernavaca to commemorate the Constitution of 1857. A new stretch of the railroad which went all the way to Yautepec was inaugurated on the 1st of April, 1883.
The new government of General Jesus H. Preciado began on the 19th of April, 1885. He was reelected several times, remaining in office more than ten years, until the 6th of December, 1894, date on which he died. In spite of this he is remembered as a good governor as during the time of his mandate the problems of limits which existed with the states of Mexico, Puebla and the Federal District were settled; organic grade school laws were issued as well as the Code of Criminal Procedures. The bedroom of the hero of the Independence, Mariano Matamoros, was declared a public monument in Jantetelco; the public library of Cuernavaca was inaugurated on the upper floor of the Porfirio Diaz Theatre, as well as the clock that is on the tower of the chapel of Guadalupe in Cuernavaca. The Diocese of Cuernavaca, which comprised the entire state of Morelos, became a reality on the 23rd of June, 1891 and was consecrated by the first bishop of Cuernavaca, Fortino Hipolito Vera, on the 29th of July, 1894.
Cuernavaca was joyous to receive the first sign of progress at the end of November of 1897. The first railroad locomotive Mexico-Cuernavaca and the Pacific arrived to give public service from Mexico City on the 1st of December. On the 11th and the 12th there were great celebrations because of the inauguration made by the President, General Don Porfirio Diaz. A banquet at the Jardin Borda, a sumptuous dance at the theatre and the beginning of the work of Calzada Leandro Valle, were the most important events of the celebrations which were unique in Morelos.
