COMPARISON OF THE TARIFF ACTS OF 1909, 1913, AND 1922.

[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 Treasury Department, and as far as possible such rates have been given.

The abbreviation "n. s. p. f." means "not specially provided for."]
