It shall be the duty of the commissioner to certify to the auditor of this State, from time to time, an itemized account of all expenditures made by him for clerk hire and other purposes, whereupon the auditor shall draw his warrant on the treasurer of the State for the payment thereof out of the funds appropriated by the legislature for that purpose, but in no case to exceed such appropriation.
