CHAPTER VII WEAKENING THE FINAL POLITICAL TIES WITH MEXICO

"Governor ad interim Alvarado, now firmly in control, initiated early in 1839 the changes in the government of Alta California that the new centralized structure required. He redesignated the old diputación as the junta departmental on February 25, and that body then approved the division of the department into districts. Alta California was divided into two districts, and Baja California comprised a third. The two of Alta California were sub-divided into two partidos, or sections, each. In the southern district, the prefect appointed by the governor to administer the district was headquartered at Los Angeles with responsibility for San Diego, and the second partido had a sub-prefect in charge at Santa Barbara. The initial appointee took office as prefect in April, 1839 but was forced to resign the next month. Several interim prefects succeeded him, until Santiago Argüello of San Diego was appointed to the office in June, 1840.1 The prefects were regarded as "petty governors" whose functions were executive rather than judicial.2 "[The prefect] exercised a general authority over the ayuntamiento [of Los Angeles] and over all local officials in the district."
