Question 89.— At a point occupied by a chartered bank only every other day, is the day next the maturing date of a bill the proper date to protest for non-payment when the due date falls on the day the bank is not open for business, or in other words, are the days when the bank is not open to be treated as a statutory holiday and protest the day following binding ?

Answer.—The bill is protestable only on the day of maturity.
