His intense works in journalism and theater unfolded in these cities. In Montevideo he joined the International Center for Social Studies (a literary organization). In Rosario he was a secretary for the writing department of ''La República'' ("The Republic"), a publication led by Lisandro de la Torre. His first writings of a social and political nature were published in ''La República''. The critical and scathing realism was apparent in his literary work for the newspaper; this writing style would later characterize his theatrical productions. Sánchez decided to move to Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1892 after spending some time in Rosario, a city in Santa Fe (Santa Fe Province), Argentina. He would remain there for two years. After his return to Montevideo in 1894, he began working as a journalist for the newspapers ''El Nacional'' ("The National"), ''La Razón'' ("The Reason"), and ''El Siglo'' ("The Sign" or "The Century"). He published interviews and wrote political articles which he adorned by incorporating dialogues from its protagonists. It was during his settlement in Buenos Aires that he began to acquire a name for himself as a journalist. He started to participate in intellectual circles and extravagantly enjoy the Buenos Aires night life. *Pope Benedict XVI canonizes Chilean Jesuit Alberto Hurtado. *Elections in Argentina, 2005.Candidates supporting Argentina's President, Néstor Kirchner, won the parliamentary elections in Buenos Aires Province (his wife was elected as Senator) and several other provinces.

Thus, the population (Population of Argentina) of Buenos Aires jumped from 1.5 million inhabitants in 1914 to 3.5 million in 1935. Felipe Pigna, ''Los Mitos de la Historia Argentina, 3'', ed. Planeta, 2006, p.285 Lacking in political experience, in contrast with the European immigrants (Immigration to Argentina) who brought with them socialist and anarchist ideas, these new city-dwellers would provide the social base, in the next decade, for Peronism. Although the Great Depression and the subsequent rural exodus had brought many politically inexperienced workers to Buenos Aires, the spontaneous import substitution industrialization enabled, starting in 1935, coupled to the strengthening of trade unions, enabled wages' increase. Henceforth, a 48-hour general strike was launched in January 1936 by workers' in construction, during which 3 workers and 3 policemen were killed.
