COMPARISON OF THE TARIFF ACTS OF 1909 AND 1913.

(NOTES.—The abbreviation “n. e.means "not enumerated” by the tariff, and when it appears in the rate columns the rate stated is that fixed by a decision or ruling of the General Appraisers, courts, or Treas. ury Department, and as far as possible such rates have been given.

Where no rate appears it indicates the item is not enumerated.
The abbreviation “n. s. p. f.” means “not specially provided for.
Where the text or classification materially changes in a paragraph the act of 1909 is given first.

The equivalent ad valorem rates have been compiled from Commerce and Navigation of the United States, 1913, of the Bureau of Foreign and Domestic Commerce, Department of Commerce. The imports from Cuba have not been included in computing the equivalent ad valorem rates, except in the computations of sugar, molasses, tobacco, and manufactures of tobacco, honey, grape fruit, shaddocks, or pomelos, pineapples, and iron ore.)
