No cause shall be referred to any division which originated in or was tried in the district of either of said judges, constituting any such division. Such judges, when so assigned, shall possess and exercise the same powers and duties and be governed by the same rules and regulations as other commissioners authorized by this act, and shall be paid in addition to their salaries as district judges, the sum of two dollars per day while acting as commissioners, which shall be in lieu of expenses now authorized by law while serving outside of their district.

The Supreme Court shall examine each such cause and opinion reported on by the commissioners, and may adopt, reject, or modify the same, or any cause may be remanded to the same or any other division of the commissioners for further investigation and report. The Supreme Court shall, in each cause returned to it by the commissioners with an opinion, when finally approved by the court, render such judgment as shall in the judgment of the court be appropriate and just.
