competent trustees to invest the money, and manage the
same, who shall, from time to time, report to the court
their proceedings, and the condition of the fund; and the

ful discharge of their duty; may, from time to time, re-
quire additional security; may remove such trustees for
cause, or reasonable apprehension thereof; and may accept
the resignation of a trustee, and fill a vacancy by a new
appointment.
