The government received in the cor- responding period in 1973. Since royalty rates for both oil and natural gas have been increased by the provin- cial government. Royalties are a form of tax paid to the province by producers. The total revenue from royalties was compared with last year. Sale of crown reserves brought in an increase of almost million from last year. Other revenue sources brought in more than million. Deliveries up WINNIPEG Increased deliveries by farmers helped push the visi- ble wheat stocks to 229.6 million bushels during the week ended July a million bushels more than the previous week and 47.1 million more than the comparable week crop year. ject in the Peace River resources minister Bob Williams said Tuesday. At a news he said the provincial govern- ment won't exercise its option because the project has been scaled since it was first announced in mid- 1972. In March last Premier Dave Barrett said B.C. had acquired the option and would exercise it providing that Brascan picked up the other 60 per cent and agreed to put 35 miles south of into produc- tion by 1975. That decision followed cancellation by Premier Barrett of a deal announced by former premier W. A. C. Bennett in just before the provincial election which put his government out of office. Mr. Bennett said then the government-owned B.C. Railway had negotiated a 20- year contract to haul the coal. He valued the Sukunka project at million. Premier Barrett said the 25- cent-a-ton royalty to be charg- ed on Sukunka production was too low. Request raise in gas price TORONTO Trans- Canada Pipe Lines said today it will ask the National Energy Board for a rate increase to raise the cost of natural gas by about 20 cents a thousand cubic feet to con- sumers in Manitoba and Saskatchewan. The company said it needs the increase to cover the higher base price for Alberta natural gas starting this fall. SALESPERSON REQUIRED For employment in a local building supply store.
