Next week, from October 5th.
to 10th. is British Columbia week
throughout the province. In every
big city and small hamlet everyone
is urged to buy goods manufactured
or grown in British Columbia.
When shopping next week insist
on obtaining British Columbia
goods, and don't stop when the
week is over, keep right on demanding B. C. goods throughout
the year. Millions of dollars are
spent by the public each year on
goods manufactured or grown in
other countries. If this money was
spent on B. C. made goods it
would relieve our unemployment
problem; it would help pay our
heavy taxes and everyone would
benefit. A lot of people bewail
the hard times, and at the same
time have no hesitation in buying
goods manufactured in foreign
countries. Help to make B. C.
prosperous. Buy homemade goods'
on every opportunity.

erties of the Hammond Consolidated Gold Fields in the Seward
Western Division reports 461
cars of ore loaded during the week

A Visit To Totem Pole
Park, Prince Rupert
By P. Powell
"Look at that lovely park!" On
arriving at Prince Rupert by boat
or train the first spot to catch the
eye is the beautiful Totem Pole
Park of the Canadian National Railways. It occupies a slope between
First and Second Avenues, and its
grass is the richest green we have
seen. As laid out it is a gem of
artistry. The gardener has worked
hand in band with nature, turning
to advantage a stump here, a root
there, and a rocky barren face as
they occur. A bare background is
used to enhance the beauty of tall'
flowers. Round an old stump are
clustered flowers and shrubs which
make it a perfect picture. The
results of a skilful hand and clever
mind are seen everywhere. Winding walks lead to an observatory
platform at the top, with restful
seats. From this vantage point a
glorious view of sea and islands,
stretching for miles, greets the eye.
Here also is the famous Wolf
Totem Pole, which belonged to a
Nishga Chief named Dauk, and
which stood in front of his lodge at
Gitlakdamic, on the Upper Naas
River. This striking pole is surmounted by the figure of an Indian
Chief holding in his hand a tomahawk. The full legend appears in
a glass-fronted cabinet nearby.
A very interesting Totem Pple
which stands in the park is the
"Grizzly." This old and weather-
beaten relic is still well-preserved.
It was carved by the Haida Indians
with their crude native implements
over two hundred years ago, and is
the oldest known pole from the
Indian village of Massett, Queen
Charlotte Islands.
From the point of attractiveness,
the best totem pole in the park is a
very tall slender specimen. This
pole appears to be of the same
thickness throughout its entire
length, and its colors and detail are
remarkably good. A pair of seagulls are shown seated at the top.
An interesting object to visitors
is the anchor which was lost from
the S. S. Beaver in the Skeena
River half a century ago. This
was picked up near the old Aberdeen Cannery during dragging
operation in May, 1928.

Rhodesian   Mines    Coming
Into Production
The first of the Northern Rhodesian mines to come into production
ia the Roan Antelope, mining and
milling now being in progress. The
smelter, however, will not be completed for some time and pending
this being aooomplished, concentrates are being shipped to New
Jersey for refining. The first ship
ment has already been made.
In view of the other Rhodesian
copper mines coming into production within the next year or so,
proposals have already been made
for the establishment of a refinery
in Britain, iu order to resume an
essential industry there which was
wiped out during the war, during
which period, Europe was supplied
from U.S.
Manufacturing Is Leading
Canadian Industry
Ottawa—Manufacturing today
is the leading productive industry
of Canada with agrioulture coming
second, construction third aud
forestry fourth, according to a
bulletin issued by the Dominion
Bureau of Statistics which shows
the net production of manufacturing in 1929 at $1,997,350,365. The
Bureau places total recorded net
production in Canada iu 1929,
after   deducting   duplications, at
,946,609,211 and the gross pro
duction at $6,846,171,400. As,
however, these figures represent
the labors of only 65 per cent, of
the gainfully employed in Canada,
the Bureau estimates that, taking
into account the work of the other
35 per cent, of the gainfully
League members benefit all ways, and especially as
patrons of the Picture Shows. Note these low prices to
Community League members and their families: Men,
one show a month at half-price. Ladies, all the time,
25c. on presentation of Membership Card. So join the
League and take an active interest in all its doings.
