Marshfield P O
Coos County, situated on the southern shore of Coos Bay, is a thriving town of about 800 inhabitants. This portion of the State is noted for its excellent timber lands and vast coal deposits, the industries of lumber manufacturing and coal mining being extensively carried on. Another important industry of this section is ship building; there being in the vicinity of the bay an almost inexhaustible supply of timber admirably adapted for that purpose. It is in contemplation to continue the improvements to the harbor already commenced, so as to assure an ample depth of water at its entrance, and also make it available to a certain extent as a harbor of refuge. Another important measure in view is the construction of a railroad to Roseburg, or some other point in the grain-producing section of the State. These improvements, when carried out, will make Coos Bay one of the most important commercial centers on the coast. Two papers, the Coos Bay News and Coast Mail are published weekly.
