Out of this income he will have to find such sums as are required for the remuneration of any deputes he may find it necessary to employ. It is a condition of the appointment of the new clerk of the peace that he shall give his whole time to the duties of his office and that he shall abstain from engaging either by himself or by his partner in any other business.
