cade Range, but little la known coo
cerning it All the field west of the
range exoept the Coos Bay. are of
rsther small area, the largest being
the Upper Nehalem, which has an
area of less than 20 square miles.
The ooal of all these fields is lignitic.
Its transportation is confined exclu
sively to Coos Bay and the Pacifio
Ocean, and San Francisco is the
principal market. The Coos Bay
field is divided by its structure into
six portions four basios and two
arches. The basins are known as the
Newport, the Beaver slough, the Co
quille, and South Sloogh, aud are
separated by the Westport and Flai-ki
arches. As practically ell of the
product from Coos Bay has been ship
ped by water to San Francisco, the
substitution of oil for coal in most of
the manufacturing industries of that
city has cot off a considerable portion
cf the market ior this coal. The
effect on Oregon's production is
ehuwn in a decrease from 10, 641 tons
in 1905, to 79,781 in 1906 and to 70,901
in 1907. The decrease in value of the
1907 product was even more pro
nouueed, ior while the pioduction
showed a decrease of 8750 tons, or
10.97 per cent, the value declined
$405,034, or 21.68 per cent. The
average price per ton declined from
I2.K6 in 1906 to 12.84 in 1907.
