as same would have been paid to the officer suspended. The suit

to appeal and review as in other civil cases. The courts shall have
authority to issue all necessary writs to effectuate any judgment of
removal or order of suspension rendered hereunder. Such suits for
removal shall have precedence over all other cases in trial courts and
in appellate tribunals. The procedure of removal herein provided
shall be cumulative of all other statutes relating to the subject of removal
from office or impeachment.
