REPORT OF THE TWELFTH FISCAL PERIOD DOMINICAN CUSTOMS
RECEIVERSHIP. CLARENCE H. BAXTER, GENERAL RECEIVER.


OFFICE OF THE GENERAL RECEIVER,
Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, April 11, 1919.
SIR: I have the honor to submit herewith the Annual Report of
the Dominican Customs Receivership, covering the financial and
trade statistics for the calendar year 1918, or the twelfth fiscal period.

COLLECTIONS.
From all customs sources during 1918 we collected a grand total
of $4,318,815.48 as compared with $5,353,163.16 collected during
1917, a difference of $1,034,347.68, or 19.3 per cent. Despite this
large decrease, the year 1918 takes second place in the record of
customs collections in Santo Domingo. And it is not a bad showing
when one considers that the Dominican Republic, which since
November, 1916, has been administered by a military-government
of the United States, was decreed by the War Trade Board of the
United States to be a neutral and, therefore, placed upon the embargo
list of both as to imports and exports. Consequently, until that
unwarranted policy could be changed by repeated protests and appeals
on the part of the Government officials and business men, licenses
were extremely difficult, if not impossible, to secure, and the Domini-
can trade suffered extensively.
The lack of tonnage also contributed to the decrease in collections.
Bottoms for the sugar crop were, of course, provided, as this article
was in great demand, but the cacao exporters, whose crop is the
second in value, and which pays an export duty of $1 per 100 kilo-
grams, had to conform to the restrictions of the War Trade and the
Shipping Boards, which is registered in the decrease that that product
shows of 4,876 tons as compared with the figures of 1917.
At the beginning of the year an amendment of the law of customs
and ports was decreed, at the request of the general receiver, in
Executive Order No. 113, which provided that customs duties be
paid in cash instead of allowing the importer from 10 to 30 days
according to the amount due according to the old law, which in
effect had permitted the merchant to conduct his business partly

upon credit furnished him by the Government. In order that the
importer might receive his goods without delay after going through
the customs, a form of provisional payments was established. This
procedure has worked satisfactorily, and the Government is now
drawing interest on capital that was formerly available for the
importers.

The receivership has also collected since the modus vivendi from
miscellaneous sources, exclusive of customs, the sum of $96,964.23.
For a consolidated statement of collections, expenditures and dis-
positions from the time of the establishment of the modus vivendi
you are referred to Appendix B of this report. The total of $50,000,-
930.47 includes the item of $23,588.96, which was collected during
1917 for the Ayuntamiento of Santo Domingo.
The Dominican Government has received as its share of the
customs collections since 1905 and up to January 1, 1919, a total of
$23,333,936.05.
During said period the general receiver has paid over to the fiscal
agent the sum of $20,799,944.52, which includes $300,000 credited
to the sinking fund for account of the year 1918.
DISBURSEMENT AND DISPOSITION OF FUNDS.

Under Appendix A, schedule 1, the various items of disbursements
by virtue of the convention and special authorizations of the Do-
minican Government will be found. In the other schedules of Ap-
pendix A the same items are analyzed in accordance with the monthly
reports that are furnished to the War Department and the Dominican
Government.






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP.


The expenses of the receivership, as defined by the convention and
the General Regulations, were $199,896.32, an increase of $36,024.02
over the expenses for the year 1917. This increase was due to the
raising of all salaries at the customhouses an average of about 15 per
cent and to the assumption by the receivership of the total cost of
the administration of the customhouses on the frontier. The general
increase in the cost of supplies also added to the increase in the
receivership expenses. The total expense was 4.63 per cent of the
gross collections and the balance that remained between the actual
cost and 5 per cent of the gross collections, viz, $16,044.45, was
transferred as accrued to the unexpended balance 5 per cent allowance
fund. Upon a monthly basis during four months of the year 19.18
the convention allowance was exceeded, whereupon the excess was
transferred from the unexpended balance fund to the credit of the
Dominican Government.
The unexpended balance 5 per cent allowance fund furnished funds
for the improvement of the river front at Santo Domingo City, and
what was formerly a veritable nest of vice and vermin has been cleaned
up and paved, so that now the space between the city wall and the
customhouse and warehouses is at the same time sanitary and
agreeable to the eye.
During 1917 the sum of $11,583 was expended in the purchase of
the small houses that were owned by squatters along the city wall
and $23,931.48 for the paving with concrete of the space aforesaid,
making a total of $35,514.48. The balance of the cost of the im-
provement, not charged until 1919, was $11,702.70, which makes a
total of $47,217.18 expended for the river front improvement, which
total is subject to a credit 6f $502.50, unexpended balance of the
amount appropriated, making the actual cost, therefore, $46,714.68.
A portion of the unexpended balance 5 per cent allowance fund was
also used to pay the salaries of the port employees and Comisarios de
Marina, both of which were formerly a Government debit, but which
were assumed by the general receiver as of January 1, 1918. These
items amounted to $13,144.96 and $4,293.60, respectively. This fund
was also drawn upon to the extent of $5,580.82 for the purchase of a
house in Puerto Plata to be used as living quarters for the special
inspector on duty at that port.
Authority was obtained from the military government and War
Department to use $50,000 from said fund to provide separate houses
for theAmerican personnel of the receivership. (See Executive Order
No. 249.) When the new houses are ready, some seven in all, the
building that is at present used to accommodate the personnel will
become the receivership office building, while the old office building
on Mercedes Street will be turned over to the Government. The
land upon which the new houses are being built adjoins the receiver-
ship property in Gazcue and was purchased at a cost of $8,730.20.







REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP.


The item of $11,037.85 shown in schedule 17 includes the cost of the
land plus the amount expended in grading, material, and construction
up to January 1, 1919. However, a portion of the land purchased
that was not needed was resold for the sum of $2,174.65, which is
shown in the receipts of schedule 17. These houses are being built
:under the personal supervision of the general receiver, and although
*construction work in the Tropics is rather difficult and uncertain, I
believe they will be ready for occupancy before the end of the year.

FISCAL AGENCY.

For the service of the loan, in pursuance of article 1 of the conven-
tion and the fiscal agency contract, the sum of $1,200,000 was re-
mitted to the fiscal agency, the Guaranty Trust Co., in monthly
installments of $100,000, all of which went forward regularly.

ASSETS OF THE SINKING FUND.

The balance for account of sinking fund for the year 1917 that
remained unpaid amounted to the sum of 8345,047.73, which was
remitted in March, 1918, while in the following November $300,000
were paid over for account of 1918, making a total of $645,047.73
that was forwarded during the year. The surplus over $3,000,000
collected from imports and exports during 1918 was $1,177,337.02,
one-half of which, viz, $588,668.51, accrued to the sinking fund,
$300,000 having already been paid over as aforesaid. As compared
with 1917, the sinking fund that accrued during 1918 was $506,374.22
less. I beg to incorporate here a statement of the sinking fund as of
December 31, 1918, which was furnished me by your office:

PAYMENTS TO THE DOMINICAN GOVERNMENT.

Despite the large decrease in collections, the Dominican Govern-
ment received as its share after monthly expenses and segregations
were made, $2,444,973.84, an average of $203,664.49, as compared
with the monthly average during 1917 of $204,648.64. Such a com-
parison, however, is misleading unless it be recalled that during 1917
the sum of $306,806.50 was remitted to the National City Bank in
settlement of the $1,500,000 loan of 1912, which ended that extra-
convention segregation.
REVENUE CUTTER SERVICE.

The annual report for 1917 gave notice of the discontinuance of
the coast guard service and the transfer of the small cutters that were
purchased by the Dominican Government in 1906 for the receivership
to the military government, the cutter Patria alone being left for the
service of the receivership. Inasmuch as the Patria was continually
used by the military government as a transport and supply vessel,
the cost of her operation was accordingly-charged to the Government.
On January 1, 1918, the receivership assumed the expense of operat-
ing the Patria and the total will be found in two items, viz, $751.34
under schedule 10 and $13,589.82 under schedule 17, the sum being
$14,341.16. Schedule 12 contains an analysis of certain bills that
were made in the United States for account of the revenue cutter
service during 1917, but which were not charged on the receivership
books until 1918. Inasmuch as these expenses were a part of the
cost of operation during 1917, they were charged to the Government.

I beg to incorporate herewith a statement showing the operations
of the revenue cutter Patria during 1918:
Number of trips......... I ........... ............................. 15

FRONTIER CUSTOMS SERVICE.
Arrangements for the transfer of the frontier guard to the national
guard were not finally completed until the 1st of May, 1918, so that
the receivership continued the administration of that branch of the
Government until said date. The total expense for the four months,
87,094.01, is analyzed in schedule 13, Appendix A.

INTERNAL REVENUE.
The total collected from this source during the year was $1,513,-
428.68, as compared with $1,226,446.66 during 1917, a gain of $286,-
982.02. For an analysis of receipts over expenditures of the military
government see Appendix C, schedules 1 and 2. Total receipts of
the Government during 1918 were $4,877,521.38. There was dis-
bursed the sum of $2,777,378.68, and the Government had on hand
the 31st of December, 1918, a balance of $4,058,106.85, segregated
to various and sundry appropriations.

COMMERCIAL STATISTICS.
If the year 1918 was not so prosperous from a customs standpoint
for the Government, it was nevertheless not a bad year for the planter
and merchant, for although in terms of tons the gross trade was con-
siderably less and the value of exports during 1918 was exceeded
during 1917 by $68,006, yet prices of agricultural products in general
were much higher. The total value of imports and exports for the
year was $42,545,526, an increase of $2,207,622, all of which and more
is included in the total value of imports. Imports for the years 1917
and 1918 were valued at $1.7,581,814 and $20,168,952, respectively;
while export values for the two years were $22,444,580 and $22,-
376,574, respectively.
Large decreases in imports were marked among articles of first
necessity, the most important ones being:
Tons less.
Wheat flour ..................... ....................... ................3,188
Biscuits and crackers................................................. 292
Smoked fish .......................................... ................ 327
Vermicelli............................................... 256
Granulated sugar ................ ................................... 199
Butter ................................................ .............. 47
Oleo and substitutes........................... ........ ................. 34






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP.


The most notable exception in this class was rice, the total im-
ported being 14,209' tons, 355 of which were reexported, leaving a
net increase over 1917 of 2,282 tons. Other exceptions were:
Tons more.
Potatoes.............. ... ................... .................. 199
Jerked beef.............. ... ...... ............. ................. 81
Lard ................. ................................... : .... 75
Salted or pickled beef ........................ ...... .. ........ ......... 72
One of the largest decreases among imports, and which was felt
most keenly from the customs standpoint, was in cotton textiles.
The total of these fabrics was 10,000,000 meters less in 1918 than
1917, which amount represents approximately $500,000 less in
duties.
Iron, steel, and manufactures thereof, of course, registered big
decreases, both in tonnage and values. However, agricultural and
sugar machinery show increases in values, this being due, of course, to
war prices. The importation of cement diminished by 2,641 tons,
although the value of the quantity imported in 1918 exceeded that of
1917 by $37,076.
Malt liquors, besides wines and spirits, registered large decreases,
the combined total being 461,471 liters less as compared with 1917.
However, there were material increases amongst several classes
that deserve mention, as for example, soaps, which registered the
large increase of 640 tons. There were also 51 more automobiles im-
ported in 1918 than in 1917. More railway and tram cars were im-
ported for the sugar estates. Jute bags ran up an increase of 1,176
tons; gasoline, 734 tons; and coal, 1,750 tons.
In comparing the values imported according to ports of entry it
will be noticed that the larger ports with one exception, that of
Sanchez, showed large increases, whereas the smaller ports registered
material diminutions. The general increases at the larger ports were
occasioned by the fact that the Clyde steamers, in order to save time,
discontinued calling at the smaller ports. The loss at Sanchez was
due to two causes, viz, competition at Puerto Plata on account of
the Dominican Central Railway giving good service to the interior,
and the drop in the exportation of cacao. The largest proportional
increase was at La Romana, where the construction of a 2,500-ton
sugar mill and other extensive improvements, including a bodega
with a very large stock of merchandise, made a banner year for the
little port. The increase in values imported at that port was
$990,162.

REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP.


The principal decreases in exports as compared with the year 1917
were as follows:
Tons.
Sugar.................................... 11, 466
Molasses........................... ... ......................... 4, 707
Cacao................................... ....................... 4,876
Logwood and dyewoods................................................. 5,182
Hides and skins......................................... ........... 431
Coconuts.......................... ............... 306
Lignum-vite ............................ .............. .............. 1,281
Mahogany.................... ........... .............. 125

Practically all of the differences were due to lack of tonnage. This
was not true, however, of sugar and molasses. The 1918 sugar crop
was not up to standard owing to a lack of rain at the necessary time.
Central Romana by increasing its acreage was able to export 44,000
tons more to Guanica than during 1917.
Good prices in coffee prevailed toward the end of the year, and
the result was an increase in the exportation of that product of
1,198 tons.
The exportation of tobacco and honey contributed more to the
general prosperity of Santo Domingo than probably any other two
crops. Both articles were in great demand in Europe, and ways
and means were found to export great quantities. Tobacco alone
registered the enormous increase in tonnage exported of 6,448 tons
and in value of $1,965,259. Honey showed an increase of 233 tons and
a value of more than double that of the preceding year.
The United States and Porto Rico furnished 95.39 per cent of the
imports and received 86.70 per cent of exports.
The outlook is good from the exporter's standpoint for 1919, as it
is evident that the high prices for agricultural products will be main-
tained, and the prospects for sufficient tonnage are infinitely better.
It is not believed, however, that imports will be so large on account
of unstable markets and the announcement that the Government
will reduce the import tariff in 1920.
