The president of the Senate shall discharge the duties of
Governor, in case of any vacancy during recess of the Legisla-
ture. In case of his refusal or inability to serve, the duties of
the said office shall devolve upon the speaker of the House.
(Article II, section 7, Constitution. )

The impeachment of the Governor may be provided for by
the Legislature which may designate, and, on his conviction, or
in any other case of vacancy of the office, may declare who shall
perform the duties of Governor, and if any vacancy should
occur, for which provision has not been made by the Legisla-
ture, the Secretary of State shall convene the General Assembly
for the purpose of filling said vacancy. (Article II, section 7,
Constitution. )

The Governor shall be the commander-in-chief of the land and
naval forces, and may call out the militia to repel invasions, sup-
press insurrection or enforce the execution of the laws, but shall
not command in person, without the consent of the Legislature.
(Article II, section 8, Constitution. )

The Governor shall nominate, -by and with the advice and con-
sent of the Senate, and appoint all civil and military officers,
whose election or appointment is not otherwise provided for
under the Constitution and the law creating said office, and he
shall take care that the laws are faithfully executed. (Article II,
sections 9 and 10, Constitution. )

In case of any vacancy during the recess of the Senate, in any
office which the Governor has power to fill, he shall appoint some
suitable person to said office, whose commission shall continue in
force until the end of the next session of the Legislature, or until
some other person is appointed to the same office, whichever shall
first occur, arid the nomination of the person thus appointed, dur-
ing the recess, or, of some other person in his place, shall be
made to the Senate within thirty days after the next meeting of
the Legislature. (Article II, Section 11, Constitution. )

Persons rejected by the Senate shall not be again nominated for
the same office at the same session, except at the request of the
Senate, nor be appointed to same office during the recess of
the Legislature. (Article II, Section 12, Constitution. )

All civil officers appointed by the Governor and Senate shall
be nominated within fifty days of the commencement of the
regular session. Their terms of office shall begin the first Mon-
day in May, and continue, unless removed, for two years, except
in cases otherwise provided for in the Constitution, and until
their successors respectively qualify, according to law, but the
terms of inspectors of tobacco shall commence on the first Mon-
day of March, next ensuing their appointment. (Article II, sec-
tion 13, Constitution. )
