Excerpt: ... THE FLORA OF THE CONCEPCION--ARAUCO COAL MEASURES OF CHILE By Edward W. Berry Introduct1on The only steam coal on or near tidewater along the western coast of the Pacific south of Puget Sound in the State of Washington is in the region around Coronel Bay a short distance south of Concepcion, Chile. Mining in the latter region is therefore an old and exceedingly profitable industry, although it is not so important a factor in maritime trade as it was when the main lanes of travel were around the southern end of South America, as they were before the Panama Canal was opened. The former importance of Coronel as a port is perhaps conclusively shown by the fact that drinks demanded by the officers and sailors of_ all maritime races can still be mixed at the bar of the small but excellent hotel in that city.
