AN ECHO OF BANKERS' MEETING.
According to Rhdd I : n.d Law Mr.
Hackett V. as Corrsct.
It will interest the bankers and oth
ers who attended the meeting of tho
Hankers of Eastern Pennsylvania iu
this city of June It to know of a recent
act of the Hbode Island legislature
bearing upon paper falliug due on a
holiday. The act referred to is as fol
lows: That all notes, drafts, checks, accep
tances, bills of exchuuge, bonds or other
evidences of indebtedness falliug duo on
Sunday or on a holiday shall be considered
due 011 the next following business day.
That banking hours shall end at 12 o'clock,
noou. on each Saturday, and Saturday
shall, for the acceptance and maturity of
paper referred to in the act, be treated as
a holiday, but this section dues not nnidv
lo checks or demand drafts 011 banks or
banaers presented before twelve noon on
Saturday. Thattheactsh.il tuke effect
on iiuiy i, it-04, ana shall aODU to nl!
notes, etc., executed and dated after the
passage of tho act, and which will fall duo
ou or after duly 1, lb04.
At the Scrauton nu-etiug, Mr. Ainoy,
of Easton, contcuded that a similar
Peuiuylvaiiia law applied only to such
banks as closed at 12 o'clock noon, en
the legal baturdar hulf-holiday. He
held that commercial paper presented
or rocoived for collection at a bank
which does not close until 8 o'clock p.
nil on Saturday, should legally be paid
that particular dsy.
Air. Hackett aud others disagreed
with Mr. Aiuey aud said that the Penn
sylvania law applies to all bsnks doing
business in the state, no matter what
is their announoed closing hour, This
latter view prevailed and it was voted
ns the s-.'iise of the meeting that banks
should close at noon 011 Satur lavs. Mr.
