THE AMERICAN-DOMINICAN CONVENTION, 1907.


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


OFFICE OF THE GENERAL RECEIVER,
Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, May 2, 1921.
SIR: The fourteenth annual report of financial transactions and,
trade statistics of the Dominican Customs Receivership for the
convention year ending December 31, 1920, in accordance with
general regulations governing, is respectfully presented herewith.

COLLECTIONS.

Customs collections for the year were the highest in the history of
the Republic, viz, $6,273,741. 24, a gain of $1,816,347.76 over last
year and nearly a million dollars in excess of the previous banner
year, 1917. But customs revenues for 1920 can not be taken as a.
criterion. Abnormal trade conditions prevailed universally, and!
Santo Domingo came in for its full share. Toward the end of the-
year importers found themselves overstocked with millions of dollars'
worth of merchandise for which the peak of high prices had been
paid, with a falling market as a barrier. During the year enormous
quantities of textiles were imported, regardless of the limited demand
nd purchasing power of the country, which had been greatly cur-
ailed by the unfavorable market for Dominican cacao and tobacco.
The natural result immediately followed-paralysis of business.
Since December Santo Domingo has never experienced such a severe
business depression.

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 $60,732,065.19
includes the item of $23,588.96 collected during 1917 for the
Ayuntamiento of Santo Domingo City.
The Dominican Government has received as its share of customs
collections since 1905, a total of $28,988,754.50, which includes the
sum of $2,579,113.79, deposited during the years 1918, 1919, and
1920 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, 1920) the general
receiver has paid over to the fiscal agent the sum of $25,600,078.37,
which includes $1,464,503.75 credited to the sinking fund for account
of the year 1920.

INSPECTION BY MAJ. GEN. FRANK M'INTYRE, U. S. ARMY, CHIEF,
BUREAU OF INSULAR AFFAIRS.

Gen. McIntyre, accompanied by his secretary, arrived on the U. S.
transport Hancocic, October 25, 1920, for an inspection.

DISBURSEMENT AND DISPOSITION OF FUNDS.

Appendix A, schedule 1, presents in detail the collections and
various items of disbursement under the convention and by virtue
of special authorization of the Dominican Government.
Expenses of the receivership during the yeai, as defined by the
convention and general regulations, aggregated $261,486.42, or 4.17
per cent of the gross collections.
The surplus accruing to the unexpended balance 5 per cent allow-
ance fund, after deducting expenses charged thereto, was $52,200.64.






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP.


The cost of operation during 1920 was much greater than during
preceding years, due to the prevailing abnormal conditions. Owing
to the higher cost of living, salaries of employees were necessarily
increased, although in less proportion than in the departments of the
Dominican Government. The enormous quantity of merchandise
passing through the customhouses of the Republic also required an
increase in the number of clerks and customs guards at all ports, and
supply bills grew accordingly. After April 1, 1920, the extra expenses
taken over from the Dominican Government by the general receiver
on January 1, 1918, i. e., salaries of port employees, comisarios de
marina, and maintenance of all port boats, theretofore charged to
the unexpended balance 5 per cent allowance fund, were charged to
the 5 per cent allowance, the amount so charged for the period of
nine months being $16,278.27.
A considerable reduction in expenses will be effected during the
year 1921, but such reductions can not be made in proportion to the
greatly reduced collections.
FISCAL AGENCY.

The sum of $1,200,000 was remitted to the fiscal agency, the Guar-
anty Trust Co. of New York, in monthly installments of $100,000, in
pursuance of article 1 of the convention and the fiscal agency
contract.

ASSETS OF THE SINKING FUND.

The balance for account of sinking fund for the year 1919 that re-
mained unpaid amounted to $646,961.59, which was remitted to the
fiscal l agent in February, 1920. The surplus over $3,000,000 collected
'from imports and exports during 1920 was $3,047,238.47, one-half of
which, viz, $1,523,619.23, accrued to sinking fund, being more than
double the 1919 sinking fund account.
The sinking fund statement, as of December 31, 1920, furnished
by the bureau is here incorporated:

COMMERCIAL STATISTICS.

While the foreign trade of the Republic during the year 1919 was
the largest in the history of the receivership, the exterior commerce
still further increased during the year 1920, aggregating $105,257,117'I
in value, an increase of $43,636,098, or approximately 71 per cent.
This increase was not a natural one, however, but was due rather to
the abnormal conditions.
The value of merchandise imported during 1920 was $46,525,876,
or $24,506,749 more than during 1919, a gain of 111 per cent. Prac-
tically all commodities are represented in this increase in value of
importations, the only decreases as compared with 1919 being in
importations of coal, soap, and miscellaneous merchandise free of
duty. The principal item of increase was in importations of cotton
goods, $8,780,869, the total value of such importations being
$12,713,362, more than treble the value of this class of goods im-
ported during the year 1919. A considerable portion of this mer-
chandise was received in the Republic on overdue orders and in some
cases on duplicated orders, but most of the increase was brought
about by a wrong estimate of the future demand, which resulted in
the accumulation of enormous stocks by the merchants of the






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP.


Republic, purchased at high prices and which must be disposed of
before further orders for cotton goods could be placed. As the
buying public was holding back for lower prices the reduction of
stocks of these goods has been very difficult, and much financial
distress has resulted. In quantity the increase in importations of
cotton goods was approximately 21,000,000 linear meters. Impor-
tations of cars and carriages (including automobiles, trucks, railway
and tram cars) increased $999,893; cement, $216,079; chemical and
pharmaceutical products, $487,721; vegetable fibers and manufac-
tures thereof, $337,675; meats, $500,904; grains, fruits, etc., $1,690,227
liquors and beverages, $877,090; canned or preserved goods, $245,086;
miscellaneous foodstuffs, $664,351; hats and caps, $318,063; hides
and skins, $1,554,586; wrought iron, $1,573,817; machinery and
apparatus, $1,143,952; mineral oils, $699,577; paints and pigments,
$211,074; paper and manufactures thereof, $437,831; perfumery and
cosmetics, $213,434; silk and manufactures thereof, $862,336; wood
and manufactures thereof, $973,791; wool and manufactures thereof,
$486,851. A complete comparative statement of all commodities is
shown in schedule 5, herewith.
Comparison with 1919 figures shows the following increases in
quantities imported: Automobiles, 354; lard, 622,960 kilos; fish,
salted or dry, 980,035 kilos; rice, 3,335,345 kilos; onions, 243,799
kilos; distilled spirits, 301,906 liters; wines, 624,203 liters; con-
densed, malted, and fresh milk, 328,329 kilos; boots, shoes, and slip-
pers, 321,871 pairs; gasoline, 3,197,359 liters; lubricating oil, 662,209
liters; paints and pigments, 382,827 kilos. Importations of crude
oil for fuel decreased 1,068,376 kilos; of soap, 758,155 kilos; and of
cement, 9,278,497 kilos in 1920.
Exports during the year amounted to $58,731,241 in value, or
$19,129,349 greater than during 1919. The principal increases in
quantities were as follows:
I Tons.
Beeswax..................... ......... .... ..... .. ....... 219

Exporations of castor beans decreased during 1920 as compared
with 1919, 190 tons; coffee, 1,592 tons; raw cotton, 57 tons; gums
and resins, 18 tons; goatskins, 113 tons; hides of cattle, 535 tons;
honey, 350 tons; molasses, 7,018 tons; raw sugar, 3,518 tons; leaf
tobacco, 3,871 tons; and cigarettes, 1,756,000.
The balance of trade in favor of the Republic was $12,205,365, a
decrease of $5,377,400 from the figures shown for 1919. This decrease






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP.


is due to the enormous importations of cotton goods and other com-
modities during the year and the great reduction of exportations
during the last six months of 1920.
All ports show large increases in importations. Exportations from
Barahona, Monte Christi, Puerto Plata, Samana, and Sanchez decreased
in value, due to reduced shipments of coffee and cotton from the first
two ports, and in the case of Puerto Plata, Samana, and Sanchez, to
the low market price on cacao and tobacco.
Throughout the Republic economic conditions were bad at the close
of the year, the merchants overstocked with goods, and the farmers
unable to dispose of their products at a price in keeping with the cost
of production. On the north coast, particularly, where cacao has
been the principal crop, the growers have suffered great losses and,
according to reports from that section, many are cutting out their
cacao and abandoning the growing of that product.

CONCLUSION.
The outlook for the ensuing year is not encouraging. Trade condi-
tions are generally unfavorable and customs collections for 1921 will
necessarily show a very decided decrease as compared to 1920.

General Receiver of Dominican Customs.

BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,

A PROCLAMATION.

Whereas a convention between the United States of America and the Dominican
Republic providing for the assistance of the United States in the collection and applica-
tion of the customs revenues of the Dominican Republic, was concluded and signed by
their respective Plenipotentiaries at the City of Santo Domingo, on the eighth day of
February, one thousand nine hundred and seven, the original of which convention,
being in the English and Spanish languages, is word for word as follows:
Whereas during disturbed political conditions in the Dominican Republic debts
and claims have been created, some by regular and some by revolutionary govern-
ments, many of doubtful validity in whole or in part, and amounting in all to over
$30,000,000, nominal or face value;
And whereas the same conditions have prevented the peaceable and continuous
collection and application of National revenues for payment of interest or principal
of such debts or for liquidation and settlement of such claims; and the said debts and
claims continually increase by accretion of interest and are a grievous burden upon
the people of the Dominican Republic and a barrier to their improvement and
prosperity;
And whereas the Dominican Government has now effected a conditional adjustment
and settlement of said debts and claims under which all its foreign creditors have
agreed to accept about $12,407,000 for debts and claims amounting to about $21,184,000
of nominal or face value, and the holders of internal debts or claims of about $2,028,258
nominal or face value have agreed to accept about $645,827 therefore, and the remaining
holders of internal debts or claims on the same basis as the assets already given will
receive about $2,400,000 therefore, which sum the Dominican Government has fixed
and determined as the amount which it will pay to such remaining internal debt
holders; making the total payments under such adjustment and settlement, including
interest as adjusted and claims not yet liquidated, amount to not more than about
$17,000,000.
And whereas a part of such plan of settlement is the issue and sale of bonds of the
Dominican Republic to the amount of $20,000,000 bearing five per cent interest pay-
able in fifty years and redeemable after ten years at 1021 and requiring payment of at
least one per cent per annum for amortization, the proceeds of said bonds, together

with such funds as are now deposited for the benefit of creditors from customs revenues
of the Dominican Republic heretofore received, after payment of the expenses of such
adjustment, to be applied first to the payment of said debts and. claims as adjusted
and second out of the balance remaining to the retirement and extinction of certain
concessions and harbor monopolies which are a burden and hindrance to the commerce
of the country and third the entire balance still remaining to the construction of certain
railroads and bridges and other public improvements necessary to the industrial
development of the country;
And whereas the whole of said plan is conditioned and dependent upon the assistance
of the United States in the collection of customs revenues of the Dominican Republic
and the application therof so far as necessary to the interest upon and the amortization
and redemption of said bonds, and the Dominican Republic has requested the United
States to give and the United States is willing to give such assistance:
The Dominican Government, represented by its Minister of State for Foreign Rela-
ions, Emiliano Tejera, and its Minister of State for Finance and Commerce, Federico
Velasquez H., and the United States Government, represented by Thomas C. Dawson,
Minister Resident and Consul General of the United States to the Dominican Republic,
have agreed:
I. That the President of the United States shall appoint a General Receiver of
Dominican Customs, who, with such Assistant Receivers and other employees of the
Receivership as shall be appointed by the President of the United States in his discre-
ion, shall collect all the customs duties accruing at the several customs houses of the
Dominican Republic until the payment or retirement of any and all bonds issued by
the Dominican Government in accordance with the plan and under the limitations
as to terms and amounts hereinbefore recited; and said General Receiver shall apply
the sums so collected, as follows:
First, to paying the expenses of the receivership; second, to the payment of interest
upon said bonds; third, to the payment of the annual sums provided for amortization
of said bonds including interest upon all bonds held in sinking fund; fourth, to the
purchase and cancellation or the retirement and cancellation pursuant to the terms
thereof of any of said bonds as may be directed by the Dominican Government; fifth,
the remainder to be paid to the Dominican Government.
The method of distributing the current collections of revenue in order to accomplish
the application thereof as hereinbefore provided shall be as.follows-
The expenses of the receivership shall be paid by the Receiver as they arise. The
allowances to the General Receiver and his assistants for the expenses of collecting
the revenues shall not exceed five per cent unless by agreement between the two
Governments.
On the first day of each calendar month the sum of $100,000 shall be paid over by
the Receiver to the Fiscal Agent of the loan, and the remaining collection of the last
preceding month shall be paid over to the Dominican Government, or applied to the
sinking fund for the purchase or redemption of bonds, as the Dominican Government
shall direct.
Provided, that in case the customs revenues collected by the General Receiver
shall in any year exceed the sum of $3,000,000, one half of the surplus above such sum
of $3,000,000 shall be applied to the sinking fund for the redemption of bonds.
II. The Dominican Government will provide by law for the payment of all customs
duties to the General Receiver and his assistants, and will give to them all needful
aid and assistance and full protection to the extent of its powers. The Government
of the United States will give to the General Receiver and his assistants such protection
as it may find to be requisite for the performance of their duties.
III. Until the Dominican Republic has paid the whole amount of the bonds of the
debt its public debt shall not be increased except by previous agreement between the
Dominican Government and the United States. A like agreement shall be necessary

to modify the import duties, it being an indispensable condition for the modification
of such duties that the Dominican Executive demonstrate and that the President of
the United States recognize that, on the basis of exportations and importations to the
like amount and the like character during the two years preceding that in which it is
desired to make such modification, the total net customs receipts would at such altered
rates of duties have been for each of such two years in excess of the sum of $2,000,000
United States gold.
IV. The accounts of the General Receiver shall be rendered monthly to the
Contaduria General of the Dominican Republic and to the State Department of the
United States and shall be subject to examination and verification by the appropriate
officers of the Dominican and the United States Governments.
V. This agreement shall take effect after its approval by the Senate of the United
States and the Congress of the Dominican Republic. *
Done in four originals, two being in the English language, and two in the Spanish,
and the representatives of the high contracting parties signing them in the City of
Santo Domingo this 8th day of February, in the year of our Lord 1907.

And whereas the said convention has been duly ratified on both parts, and the
ratifications of the two Governments were exchanged in the City of Washington, on
the eighth day of July, one thousand nine hundred seven;
Now, therefore, be it known that I, Theodore Roosevelt, President of the United
States of America, have caused the said convention to be made public, to the end
that the same and every article and clause thereof may be observed and fulfilled with
good faith by the United States and the citizens thereof.
In testimony whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the seal of the United
States of America to be affixed.
Done at the City of Washington, this 25th day of July in the year of our Lord one
thousand nine hundred and seven, and of the Independence of the United States of
America the one hundred and thirty-second.
