Mr. MALCOLM:

In the case of the officers a contribution is made; that is the difference between thte two classes. The officers pay five per cent of their salary as a contribution to the pension fund, and another five per cent is contributed by the government. In the case of the privates and subalterns the whole ten per cent is paid by the government.
