OPTION ON FAMOUS MINE.
CANDEtiAKJA May l.-A company
or Now York cnnllallstfJ lma secured
nn option on it calcium mine! lit Jeff
Davis county flvo miles caBt of horo
and near tho Itlo Qrantlo river. Thla
mine forty-flvo miles from Valentino
IS believed to bo tho fablod Herbron-
dadora del Enforno mlno dlscovored
by tho Spaniards In tho Btxtconth con-
tury and In so called becauBo of Uio
quantities of boiling water found near
tho mine. A. L. Loybrund engineer
for tho now company bolloves Uio
mlnb can bo worked and Is at present
making an cstimato of the approximate
tonnnngo of tho ore.
According to local logonds Uio old
Imlno has bad a very Interesting his
tory. About IC13 Gem Eatoban Es-
pojo n Spaniard arrived at Zacatecas
with 2000 men. Ho was bent on ono
of tho many explorations which char-
acterized that period and at this place1
he was joined by his old comrade Don
Danfelo Mnrouos do Candolarla from
whom tho namo of this town Is deriv-
ed. Doing told many wonderful stories
by Fabrian Maldlnado concerning a
mlno located near a muddy rfvor lat-
er known as tho Itio Grande tho two
adventurers wore very much Interest-
ed. This mlno which was a boiling
mass of water and metal was reported
to contain a wondorful amount of cal-
cium. Knowing that the king of Spain
wanted a largo amount of this metal
they set out In search of the mine. Af-
ter six months wandoring In the direc-
tion of the Uio Grande river the two
became separated and soon after-
wards discovered tho object of their
search which they named Herbronda-
dora do Enferno or "Boiling Hell." as
It was situated on top of a high moun-
tain and boiling water came through
crevaccs In the rocks.
Maldlnaldo took charge of the work
on the mlno while Candclaria laid out
the town which afterwards bore his
name placing about 3000 acres under
cultivation This town however whs
not tho modern Candolarla as tho
Spaniard's work was afterwards com-
pletely washed away by a rise in tho
Rio grande river and the modern town
was not established until several ears
In the meantime Maldlnado was
working the mine forcing the peons to
labor in the boiling water in order to
removo the calcium As a result
thousands died as the hot watei made
them especially susceptible to arsenic
Of course the peons were not in fa-
vor of this dangerous work but Maldl-
nado employed tho most cruel methods
to keep them at It. Often Ire personal-
ly beheaded with his sabor such of
them as dared complain of the work.
This sort of thing was sure to causo
trouble and things came to a head one
day when the ferocious Spaniard was
more cruel than usual.
Maldlnado had beheaded several of
the peons and Valentina a pretty girl
of seventeen years was found by him
weeping over the untimely death of
one of his victims This according to
local traditions so enraged tho blood-
thirsty Maldlnado that he thrust his
sword through her heart- and drank
her blood declaring It to be "quo Del-
cev sabroso" or sweet and savory.
A ilentina was beloved by the peons
and whon tlioy learned what had hap-
pen d they seized Maldlnado and star-
ted dragging him up tho trail Intend-
ing to throw his body Into the boil-
ing wator. Then a now dovolopmont
came In the tragedy for Margarita the
muidered girl's sister rushed bofore
them and bogged for his rcelase.
