The duty agreed upon for cloths, ready-made clothing, knit fabrics, flannels not for underwear, women's dress goods, webbings, gorings, etc., and articles not specially provided for, is 49 per cent ad valorem, instead of the varying rates in the House bill, ranging from 35 to 50 per cent ad valorem, and 55 per cent ad valorem as proposed by the Senate.
