Every such appointee before he enters upon the duties of his office shall take and subscribe the constitutional oath of office, and shall make oath before the county clerk of such county that he will keep secret all matters and things occurring before such grand jury. Such stenographer shall take and transcribe the testimony given before the grand jury in respect of the matter or investigation conducted by the attorney general or deputy attorney general, and shall furnish to him a full copy of all such testimony as he shall require.
