THE AMERICAN-DOMINICAN CONVENTION, 1907.


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


OFFICE OF THE GENERAL RECEIVER,
Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, April 22, 1920.
SIR: The thirteenth annual report of financial transactions and
trade statistics of the Dominican Customs Receivership for the con-
vention year, ending December 31, 1919, in accordance with general
regulations governing, is respectfully presented herewith, together
with remarks pertinent thereto.

COLLECTIONS.
The aggregate gross customs collections for the year from all
sources amounted to $4,457,393.48, a gain of $138,578 over last year,
ranking second to our record total for 1917-$5,329,574.20. Al-
though the showing for the year is a very creditable one, it is quite
probable that another high record would have been established had
it not been for the effect of the longshoremen's strike last fall and the
revision of the Dominican customs tariff, elsewhere noted. The new
low tariff became operative January 1, 1920, and consequently the
importers took advantage of the privilege afforded to declare importa-
tions in deposit the latter part of 1919, for liquidation and con-
sumption after January 1, 1920.
Revenues produced from duties on importations and exportation
amounted to $4,032,665.38 and $261,257.80, respectively, the values
represented thereby being $61,818,319; balance of trade $17,615,065.

Making a total of ..................................... 54,434,734.99
A consolidated statement of collections, expenditures, and dis-
positions from the time of the establishment of the modus vivendi
is contained in Appendix B of this report. The total of $54,458,323.95
includes the item of $23,588.96 collected during 1917 for the Ayunta-
miento of Santo Domingo City.
The Dominican Government has received as its share of customs
collections since 1905, a total of $25,806,152.15, which includes the
sum of $1,218,869.19, deposited during the years 1918 and 1919 with
the designated depositary for the benefit of the "Five per cent bond
issue of 1918" as prescribed by Executive Orders Nos. 193 and 272,
dated August 2, 1918, and March 13, 1919, respectively. (Schedule
No. 1.)
During the same period (Apr. 1, 1905, to Dec. 31, 1919) the general
receiver has paid over to the fiscal agent of the $20,000,000 loan the
sum of $22,288,613.03.
TARIFF REVISION.

The Dominican customs tariff of 1910 has been revised, as pro-
vided for in Executive Order No. 280, and a new tariff law became
effective January 1, 1920. The general level of duties has been re-
duced about 38 per cent, based on average 1918 imported quantities
and invoice values.

INSPECTION BY COL. C. B. LODGES, UNITED STATES ARMY, ASSISTANT
TO THE CHIEF, BUREAU OF INSULAR AFFAIRS.

Col. Hodges' inspection of the central office, living quarters of
American personnel, all ports of entry, and the principal land port,
covered the 'period December 22, 1919, to January 7, 1920. All
facilities and records were placed at his disposal and he became
familiar with the extent of the receivership's efforts, making some
timely suggestions for the betterment of the service.
DEPUTY GENERAL RECEIVER.

President Wilson appointed G. D. Miller, of Washington, D. C.
(formerly secretary of the receivership), deputy general receiver of
Dominican'customs, November 9, 1919, to fill the vacancy made by
the resignation of John T. Vance.







REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP.


LIVING QUARTERS FOR AMERICAN PERSONNEL.
With reference to paragraph 5, page 5, of the last annual report to
the bureau, the new dwelling houses, six in all, owing to unavoidable
delays in importing fixtures, etc., will not be ready for occupancy
until about July 1, when the building at present used as living quar-
ters by the American personnel will become the receivership central
office building, and the old office building will be turned over to the
Government. (See Executive Order No. 249.)

FISCAL AGENCY.
The sum of 81,200,000 was remitted to the fiscal agency, the
Guaranty Trust Co. of New York, in monthly installments of $100,000,
in pursuance of article 1 of the convention and the fiscal agency
contract.
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 Domini-
can Government will be found. In the other schedules of Appendix
A the same items are analyzed in accordance with the monthly
reports furnished the bureau and the Dominican Government.
The expenses of the receivership as defined by the convention and
general regulations were $195,311.22, or 4.38 per cent of the gross
collections, $4,585.10 less than the expenses for the preceding year,
a very clear demonstration of the economic policy of the receivership
as well as the efficiency of the organization. The amount accruing
to the unexpended balance 5 per cent allowance fund aggregated
$27,558.45.
A portion of the unexpended balance 5 per cent allowance fund was
used to pay the salaries of the port employees and comisarios de
marina, formerly Government debits, which were assumed by the
general receiver as of January 1, 1918, the items amounting to
$14,462.89 and $4,296.50, respectively.

ASSETS OF THE SINKING FUND.
The balance for account of sinking fund for the year 1918 that
remained unpaid amounted to $288,668.51, which was remitted to
the fiscal agent in February, 1919. The surplus over $3,000,000 col-
lected from imports and exports during 1919 was $1,293,923.18, one-
half of which, viz, $646.,961.59, accrued to sinking fund, being
$58,293.08 in excess of 1918 sinking fund account.

receiver of Dominican customs in June, 1916, to assume control of
the collection of all internal revenues and disbursement of the budget
of the Dominican Republic, was revoked, and pursuant to instruc-
tions from the Acting Chief of the Bureau of Insular Affairs, the
personnel, books, records, etc., of that department were formally
transferred to the military government.







REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP.


PAYMENTS TO THE DOMINICAN GOVERNMENT.
The Dominican Government received as its share of collections,
after the usual segregations as provided for in the convention were
made, $2,472,216.10 as compared to $2,443,973.84, the amount
accruing to the Government last year.
NOTE.-The Government's share for 1919 includes the sum of
$843,869.19 deposited by the general receiver with the designated
depositary for account of the Dominican Republic 5 per cent bond
issue of 1918, in accordance with provisions of Executive Orders
193 and 272.
COMMERCIAL STATISTICS P
The foreign trade of the Republic during 1919 was the largest in
the history of the receivership. Merchandise valued at $22,101,627
was imported through the customhouses during the year, an increase
over the preceding year of $1,932,675. The tonnage of cargo im-
ported during 1919 was 7,716 tons greater than in 1918.
Exports during the period amounted to $39,716,692, the increase
over 1918 being $17,340,118, or approximately 44 per cent, which
clearly indicates increasing industry and progress and the healthy
condition of the country.
The most gratifying feature of the increase in foreign commerce
is the large balance of trade in favor of the Republic, amounting to
$17,615,065, eight times more than in 1918, and nearly double that
of 1916, the previous banner year in this respect.
A notable increase is shown in the volume of wheat flour imported,
7,656 tons more than in 1918. Importations of soap increased 875
tons, biscuits and crackers'298 tons, butter 170 tons, salted or dry
fish 146 tons, smoked fish 108 tons, and pickled fish 81 tons.
Importations of rice during 1919 decreased 4,469 tons as compared
with the preceding year, boots and shoes 107,000 pairs, coal 7,250
tons, jute bags 998 tons, lard 249 tons, salt or pickled beef 99 tons,
and jerked beef 71 tons. Imports of cotton textiles were nearly
2,000,000 meters less than during the year 1918, representing a loss
in duties amounting to approximately $100,000.
The principal increases in exports as compared with the year
1918, were:
Tons.
Sugar............... ................................................. 42,288
Cocoa............... .................................................. 3,578
Tobacco............... ............................................... 5,102
Coconuts............................................................. 648
Logwood and dyewoods................................................ 1,754
Hides and skins......................................................... 827
Molasses ............... .............................................. 16,743
Lignum-vite ........................................................... 465
Mahogany............... ............................................. 327







REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP.


The outstanding item of decrease in exports is that of sugar cane,
114,110 tons less than in 1918. This decrease, however, is accounted
for by the increased handling capacity of the central at La Romana,
which is resulting in a diminishing exportation of cane from that
port to Porto Rico for grinding.
A decrease of 76 tons is shown in the quantity of coffee exported,
but due to the better prices obtained the value of that product ex-
ported during 1919 exceeded the value of the larger exportations
during 1918 by $410,848.
The value of merchandise imported through the various ports of
entry as compared with 1918 shows an increase at all ports with
the exception of La Romana, there having been a large decrease at
this port due to the discontinuance of the heavy importations of
machinery, etc., which were being made during 1918 for the sugar
estate at that port.
All ports of entry show very large increases in exports.
CONCLUSION.
The outlook for the ensuing year is encouraging in every respect.
Business conditions are generally satisfactory and the receivership
bids fair to record 1920 as its most prosperous year.
Respectfully,
C. H. BAXTER,
General Receiver of Dominican Customs.
