SEC. 6. Whenever, during the recess of the Legisla-

ance in office, wilful neglect of duty, or misappropriation
of the funds of the State, it shall be the duty of the Gov-
ernor to forthwith notify the party so charged, and fix a
day for a hearing of said charges; and, if from the evi-
dence, taken under oath, on said hearing before the Gov-
ernor, the said allegations shall be sustained, it shall be
the duty of the Governor to remove said offending officer,
and to appoint another in his place, who shall hold his
office for the unexpired term of the officer so removed.

teen hundred and sixty-seven, and on the same day in

ty, their compensation, powers and duties, shall be such
