Let me try to make the position clear. He is entitled to $3,500 as salary to begin with, and he is entitled to annual increases of $100 a year until he reaches the maximum of $4,000. But, if he has served one, two, three or five years, that service will count for the1 purpose of increasing his salary. So, if he has served for two years his salary will be $3,700, if three years his salary will be $3,800 and so on. This is the general principle. But it is provided also that the Bill shall not become applicable to the registrar of the Supreme Court until such time as he shall cease to act as one of the commissioners for the revision of the statutes. So, until he has ceased to act in that capacity he will remain as at present, in receipt of a salary of $3,200.
