THE AMERICAN-DOMINICAN 'CONVENTION, 1907.


REPORT OF THE FIFTEENTH FISCAL PERIOD, DOMINICAN CUSTOMS
RECEIVERSHIP, WILLIAM E. PULLIAM, GENERAL RECEIVER.


OFFICE OF THE GENERAL RECEIVER,
Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, March 15, 1922.
SIR: By virtue of appointment under a commission issued by
President Harding on November 10, 1921, William E. Pulliam, of
California, assumed, for the second time, charge and control of the
administration of the Dominican Customs Receivership, his prior
appointment to the post having been made in 1907 by President
Roosevelt.
Thomas T. Kelly, of Kansas, was appointed deputy general
receiver on January 4, 1922, and is duly installed in that position.
As the transfer of accountability from G. D. Miller, former deputy
general receiver, and acting general receiver from May 16, 1921,
became effective December 23, 1921, but one week prior to the close
of the calendar and fiscal year, the annual report respectfully sub-
mitted herewith, in conformity with the general regulations gov-
erning, will be a review and some pertinent comment upon official
transactions and trade movement during the 12 months' period
in which the undersigned did not participate.

THE YEAR.

Santo Domingo, in common with the rest of the world, commercially
suffered in 1921 from the reflex action of the year before, when prices
for practically all commodities figuring in the world's trade reached
peak prices. The crash came to this section, the West Indies, along
about the middle of 1920, from which date the trade pendulum swung
violently in the opposite direction, so that while the volume of impor-
tations received in 1920 was abnormal, with inflated prices, on the
other hand the volume in 1921 was scant-that is, just enough to meet
day by day the necessities of the population. Consequently the
customs collections decreased to a marked degree. During that
period immediately following the armistice, which continued through-
out 1919 and into a portion of the next year, importers here, as in
other countries, acted on a mistaken premise that prices were going
1






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP.


up and would continue to go up, with little probability of their
coming down. Many lots of merchandise imported at the several
ports of entry were returned by the various consignees, who were
unable to take up or cover the' usual shipping documents, because
they saw no chance of disposing of the merchandise in a rapidly
declining market, and they could in no other way satisfy the de-
mands of the suppliers. In such an unusual development the Gov-
ernment was helpful and gave all possible encouragement to import-
ers who found themselves in that predicament. The most liberal
interpretation was given the customs regulations in support of war-
ranted intervention on the part of the Government in its endeavor
to protect commerce from the immediate effects of the world-wide
slump in trade. Reexport was freely allowed of importations for
which there existed no legitimate trade demand.
From the foregoing the fact will be appreciated that import
transactions of 1920 were inflated, and as a corollary the calendar
year 1921, to which this report relates, revealed the reverse of the
picture. There was no healthy demand, just enough to meet pressing
requirements of the people.
The economic situation in Santo Domingo was accentuated by the
failure promptly to cope effectively with it, rather than temporize;
that is, a tendency of importers and merchants to put off and then
suffer losses in the long run, rather than to sell outright, absorbing
such losses, and making for a fresh start in the commercial field
COLLECTIONS.

The jump from the high-water mark of aggregate customs collec-
tions in 1920, $6,273,741.24, to those for the year just closed (1921),
viz, $2,859,866.40, was tremendous, and represented a decrease of
$3,413,874.84, or more than one-half. For comparison in this fiscal
respect it is necessary to go back 12 years (third convention year,
period 1909-10) with gross collections of $2,876,976.17. And one
big reason for that low aggregate was an announced tariff revision
downward, discounted alike by merchants and importers. As the
report for the fourteenth fiscal period well pointed out "customs
collections for 1920 can not be taken as a criterion. Abnormal
trade conditions prevailed universally, and Santo Domingo came in
for its full share." Of the gross collections for the year, $2,773,555.27
was derived from imports, the balance represented mostly personal
fees, reimbursable for poft services rendered shipping. (See Appendix
A, Schedule No. 4, accompanying.)






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP.


COST OF COLLECTION.

Coupled with the marked gain in collections during 1920 there
was a corresponding increase in cost of operation, comprising customs
expenses proper.
For the year 1921 total expenditures of $236,951.98 under this
heading, compared with $261,486.42 for the year before, represented
a decrease of $24,534.44. However, the decline was in no wise in
consonance with the corresponding increase for 1920, reported due
to then prevailing abnormal conditions.
Quoting from the previous annual report, referred to for compara-
tive purposes:
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.
In connection with this phase, it is proper to make of record
that the tariff revisionlawin effect January 1, 1920, abolished all export
duties and carried with it an average reduction of 38 per cent, based
upon previously imported quantities and values. But for customs
purposes and control, with necessary surveillance, about the same
customs personnel and equipment must be maintained to afford
dispatch and safeguard the interests of the revenue.
The above should make plain that the earning power of the receiver-
ship was materially lessened by the reduction of the tariff, which
automatically increased the percentage allowance of the convention
and forced it above the 5 per cent authorization. The low level
aggregate collections for the year raised the cost of collection to 8.29
per cent, the highest in that respect yet recorded. (Appendix A,
Schedule No. 4.)
DISBURSEMENTS.
Usual particulars in tabulated form of disbursements under the
several heads are shown in appropriate accompanying schedules.
Brief reference only will be made in the narrative herewith to those
principal items which constitute the cardinal concern of the conven-
tion and for which it was devised. Chief among these is the service
of the Dominican customs loan of 1908, requiring the transmittal
monthly of $100,000 interest and amortization account. They were
faithfully attended to. (See Schedule No. 9, Appendix A.) As the
customs revenue failed to pass the 3,000,000 mark for the first time
in years, there accrued nothing additional for credit to the sinking
fund. Of special interest is Schedule No. 8, with its comparative
statements of amounts actually paid to the Government, by months,
during the six years 1916 to 1921. The word "actually" is employed
to mark a distinction between other payments not of direct concern
to the receivership, but made for account of the Government on

competent authority, covering refunds, etc. The table clearly reveals
the lean years as well as the more prosperous and shows the average
monthly payments during 1921. Schedules Nos. 10 to 12 are of
interest as showing in segregated detail the various expenses and
charges incident to the maintenance of the entire customs service.

RECAPITULATION.

Always an interesting exhibit of the magnitude of the work per-
formed by the receivership since its commencement, April 1, 1905, is
the accompanying Appendix B, which indicates in condensed form
the aggregate revenue collections from all sources, $63,591,931.59,
plus the miscellaneous and other receipts, making the grand total of
$64,467,260.94, together with expenditures and disbursements to
correspond, from which the high points of the financial transactions
may be better understood. In the smaller amount shown above is
embraced $23,588.96, municipal surtax, collected by the receivership
in 1917, for the Ayuntamiento of Santo Domingo City.

FISCAL PERIODS.

A standing feature of these annual reports is the incorporation to
date of gross collections annually handled by the receivership since
its inception, April 1, 1905.

DOMINICAN REPUBLIC 5 PER CENT BOND ISSUE OF 1918, $4,161,300.

In 1917 the Dominican Government created, by Executive Order
No. 60, the Dominican Claims Commission, to adjudicate certain
claims against the Government.
To pay the claims approved, the Dominican Government author-
ized, with the consent of the Government of the United States, a
bond issue of $4,161,300, at 5 per cent interest, secured by a second
lien on the customs revenues.

I Furnished by Bureau of Insular Affairs.






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP.


The general receiver was authorized and directed to make monthly
deductions from the Dominican Government's share of the revenues
to cover interest and amortization and to deposit same with the
designated depositary in a special account entitled "Dominican
Republic 5 per cent bond issue, 1918, Executive Order No. 193,"
such deductions to be regularly continued until all of the bonds
have been redeemed and paid.
Executive Order No. 272 further provided that in addition to the
deductions provided for in Executive Order No. 193, there shall, in
event that the customs revenues exceed the sum of $3,000,000 in
any one year, be segregated and deposited for the service of this
bond issue 60 per cent of one-half of such surplus over $3,000,000.
For service of this bond issue the general receiver has deposited
with the designated depositary, to December 31, 1921, a total of
$2,879,578.85, on dates as shown in Schedule No. 16, Appendix A.
DOMINICAN REPUBLIC FOUR-YEAR 8-PER CENT BOND ISSUE OF 1921.
During June, 1921, to obtain funds necessary for the completion
of certain public works, the Dominican Government, with the
consent of the Government of the United States, issued bonds to the
amount of $2,500,000, secured both as to principal and interest by
a third lien on the customs revenues of the Republic.
The duties of the general receiver as defined in the convention were
extended to include this loan and he was authorized and directed
to make the regular segregations stipulated in Executive Order No.
637 for the service of this loan from that portion of the customs
revenues accruing to the Dominican Government.
Article 6 of the said Executive order also provides that if in any
year the customs revenues should be insufficient to meet the stipu-
lated payments, the difference shall be provided from the internal
revenue.
For service of this bond issue the general receiver as the initial
payment transmitted to the Equitable Trust Co. of New York,
fiscal agent, from customs revenues, $398,644.31, and $29,480.69,
which latter sum was supplied by the Dominican Government to
make up the required amount, $428,125, for the period June to
October, 1921.
Table showing dates and amounts paid under above heading may
be referred to in Schedule No. 17.
PATRIA.
The revenue cutter Patria was placed out of commission during
the entire year, anchored in the Ozama River above the customs
wharf. Owing to its condition and cost of operation, due to exces-
sive consumption of gasoline, some arrangement will be made for

the disposition 'of the craft, as its employment is not practical in
connection with customs work. Cost charged to maintenance and
upkeep, $8,367-a large expenditure for a vessel out of service-is
explained by the statement that a considerable quantity of gasoline
purchased in the year previous was included in 1921 accounts.

INSPECTION OF SERVICE.

To gain first-hand information and ascertain the actual situation
and conditions prevailing at the several ports, the newly named
general receiver, shortly after arrival, made a hurried though ex-
tensive tour of inspection throughout the Republic. Leaving the
capital by the water route for Barahona, at the extreme southwest,
the trip overland was accomplished to Monte Cristi, the north-
western port of entry, and stations along the Haitian frontier were
visited- en route. Returning, stops were made at Puerto Plata,
Sanchez, Samana, La Romana, and Macoris; also Santiago, the
principal commercial center of the interior, to which a large volume
of imports regularly goes. A check and inspection of the personnel
permits of a more intelligent rearrangement of the different forces,
with a view of efficiency and economy. It is believed the result of
information obtained from merchants and importers can be trans-
lated into improvement of the official routine throughout the service.

GROUNDS AND BUILDINGS.

The receivership owns and controls one of the most attractive
parcels of real estate in the suburban district of Gazcue at the capital,
within which are comprised not only the large central office build-
ing but six cottage bungalows that provide comfortable living
quarters for the American personnel. As an outside holding, at
Puerto Plata there is a first-class dwelling and ample grounds for
use of the receivership American representative. These substantial
investments, including notable improvements to the customs prem-
ises at Santo Domingo, the principal port of entry, represent valuable
realty assets for the ultimate account of the Dominican Government.

DOMINICAN CATTLE.

A trade possibility of attraction for the Republic should be cattle,
the raising, the development, and export. Lying between Cuba
and Porto Rico, which help to form the Greater Antilles, both
.-countries well populated and not producing cattle in sufficient
numbers to meet the home demand, Santo Domingo produces
annually a surplus, and with little care. Yet the island enjoys no
export market at the very time Cuba brings cattle from distant
Colombia and Venezuela, while Porto Rico is a heavy importer of






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP.


meat products. Grazing lands are ample and pasturage excellent,
especially in the Cibao section. The cattle are healthy, free from
disease, and are grown with little attention. Enough is. available
for home consumption, and as no export market has been developed
there is little incentive for the best returns the industry might yield.
With improvement in the stock breeding, the geographically favored
position the country enjoys might well invite consideration on the
part of those familiar with cattle raising in the Tropics who seek a
field with an unmistakable future.

SUGAR INDUSTRY, BARAHONA PROVINCE.
Within recent years one of the most pretentious installations for
the cultivation of sugar cane and manufacture of sugar in the entire
West Indies was located in the Province of Barahona, situate in the
western part of the Republic, immediately adjoining the Haitian bor-
der. The operating company holding the land is known as the Bara-
hona Co. (Inc.), of New York, which in turn controls the Ingenio
Barahona, C. por A, the latter under the laws of the Dominican
Republic.
No land concessions are held by this company, as it is not the
policy of the country to grant same, as was the custom of former
years and which led to favoritism and brought on criticism. How-
ever, the company holds a total of some 48,000 acres, obtained by
purchase, subject to the well-known communal title, dating way back
to Spanish land grants, which vested titles in individuals, particu-
larly where former holdings were subdivided in the settlement of
family estates, making it extremely difficult to fix clear title with any
degree of certainty. This very feature is now before the land court
of Santo Domingo for adjudication.
The land in question was more or less heavily timbered. It is in
the section from whence formerly there were large exportations of
mahogany and certain cedars used in the United States in the manu-
facture of lead pencils.
Although ground for these extensive improvements was only first
broken in August, 1919, to date 15,000 acres are in cane. Roughly
speaking, some 150 residences, large and small, splendidly con-
structed of permanent material, are available for the personnel, and
the mill proper represents the last word in sugar-making machinery.
The enterprise will enjoy the unique distinction of being the only
irrigating project for sugar raising on the island. It is understood
there is none in Cuba.
This stupendous improvement, which means much for the future
industrial development of Santo Domingo, was, of course, of American
manufacture, and during the period of construction and preliminary





REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP.


cultivation the monthly pay roll for labor at times amounted to,
$200,000. In round numbers the total investment to date represents
some $13,000,000. The estimated output for the 1922 sugar crop is
200,000 bags, practically equal to that of any other sugar mill hereto-
fore operating in the Republic. The first grinding was on February
1, 1922.
In addition to the plant described above in the Barahona Province,
the same interests own and operate two other well-known ingenios, or
sugar estates, viz, Consuelo, District of Macoris, and San Isidro, situ-
ated close to the capital, Santo Domingo.
It is the expectation of the company that in following years the
output will double that expected for the current year, or 400,000 bags.
With the advantage of irrigation and dry climate the estate can
grind all the year round, though the management does not now
intend to operate more than 9 to 10 months.
The continuation and expansion of this important enterprise will
depend upon the recovery of sugar in the world markets. At the
present time the quotation affords a net return hardly sufficient to
cover the actual cost of production, and for some of the estates it is
said that that figure is not realized. Dominican sugar, in seeking its
market in New York, carries a handicap of direct competition with
the tariff-favored rival fields of Cuba and Porto Rico, and any reci-
procity agreement in a tariff way between the United States and
Santo Domingo at some future date would redound greatly to the
advantage of the sugar industry of the Republic, and thus play a
large part in trade stimulation along other industrial and commercial
lines.
To meet the demand for the class of common labor necessary both
for the field production and construction work, Haitians and inhab-
itants of neighboring British isles, also from St. Thomas, Virgin
Islands, are employed to a large extent, owing to the admitted
scarcity of native labor available for this hard manual work.

COMMERCE.
The aggregate seaborne commerce of the Republic during 1921
amounted to $45,199,375 in value, compared with $105,257,117 in
1920, or a decrease of $60,057,742, 56 per cent, $50,299,377 of which
decline related to trade with the United States.
For the first time in the history of the receivership Santo Domingo
occupied the adverse position of a trade balance against it. The
declared value of imported merchandise exceeded that of local
products exported by $3,971,279. This condition is readily explained
by the low market prices for Dominican products. Some, while show-
ing a considerable increase in quantity exported, actually brought
less returns than for the smaller production of the preceding year.






10 REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP.

What immediately follows is intended to afford a quick glance
reference to the salient statistical data of the four leading Dominican
crops, from the peak prices of 1919 and 1920 to the reduced of 1921,
and then the present lower levels.
Sugar exported in 1919 and 1920 yielded to the producer $5.80
per hundredweight and $12.97 per hundredweight, respectively, or
an average for the two years of $9.38; 1921, $3.55. He is receiving
for his 1922 shipments $2.16.
Cacao, the second crop, for the same two years had a declared
value of $14,179,586, and the grower received an average price of
$14.15 per hundredweight; 1921, $5.27. He is now receiving for
his 1922 crop $9.50 per hundredweight.
Tobacco leaf exported during these two years was valued at
$10,901;139 and netted the planter an average of $13.30 per hundred-
weight; 1921, $7.97. The 1922 price is $5.85 per hundredweight.
Coffee exported in 1919 and 1920 amounted to $1,213,358 in value
and the average price for the two years was $19.50 per hundredweight;
1921, $11.68. It is being sold now for $9.50 per hundredweight.
The marked decline in price of the four principal products of
Santo Domingo tells in another way the story of the shrinkage in
customs duties for 1921 and is an index for 1922 expectations.

EXPORTS.

Total value of Dominican products exported during the year 1921
was $20,614,048, a decrease of $38,117,193, or about 64 per cent, as
compared with the exports of the preceding year. Quantities of
domestic products exported in some instances show an increase, but
with the exception of cattle and foreign merchandise reexported, all
values are on the debit side compared with 1920. The following
statement, showing the increases and decreases by items, is included
for ready reference as an exposition of the drop in values:

The items for which increases in quantity and decreases in value
are shown would indicate that the decrease in total value was due to
the prevailing low prices. This was particularly true of cacao, coffee,
sugar, and leaf tobacco. It will be noted that a decrease of 398 ton'
in the exportation of beeswax occurred in 1921, coconuts, 272 tons;
logwood, 2,824 tons; gums and resins, 18 tons; goatskins, 40 tons;
cattle hides, 167 tons; other hides and skins, 46 tons; honey, 1,024
tons; refined sugar, 462 tons; sugar cane, 12,573 tons; leaf tobacco,
7,259 tons; lignum vitae, 1,206 tons; mahogany, 308 tons; and other
woods, 2,629 tons.

IMPORTS.

Merchandise of a declared valuation of $24,585,327 was imported
during the year 1921, the volume being $21,940,549 less than during
the preceding year, of which total $11,465,552 was entitled to free
entry, and $13,119,775 subject to duty.
As in the past the greater portion of the importations was of Amer-
ican origin, with a percentage of 83.97; Porto Rico followed with 4.96
per cent, and the remainder distributed in lesser degree among various
other nations.

The value of imports carried in American bottoms was $20,443,542;
Norwegian, $1,597,955; Dutch, $1,175,846; the balance was divided
among Dominican, British, French, German, Italian, Cuban, and
other carriers.
Santo Domingo continued to be the principal port of entry, receiv-
ing 33.94 per cent of the total value of importations; 22.5 per cent
entered at the port of Macoris, while the port of Barahona displaced
Puerto Plata as the third port of the island in value of importations,
with 19.39 per cent, compared with 12.75 per cent for the latter.
Nearly half of the decrease in value of importations occurred in the
item of cotton goods, the falling off in that item alone being $10,991,-
791. As reported for the fourteenth fiscal period, the merchants of
the island had greatly overstocked with goods of this character, and
the importations during 1921 therefore were of only such articles of
cotton manufacture absolutely necessary. The old stock continues to
move slowly, due to the restricted purchasing power of the people.
It is unlikely that there will be any considerable relief in the cotton
goods situation until the value of local products exported reach a point
where a profit may be realized over cost of production and thereby
release money for other purposes. A decrease of $2,928,409 is shown
in value of imported grains, fruits, vegetables, and preparations
thereof; $1,705,457 in value of hides and skins; $1,301,403 in mis-
cellaneous foodstuffs. The remainder of the decline was distributed
among the many other items of import. Coke briquettes, copper and
alloys, earthenware and porcelain, cast and wrought iron, and stones
and earths and manufactures showed increases, while the principal
increase of the year was in machinery and apparatus, amounting to
$1,869,565.
Destination.-Of the total value of exported products, 77.7 per
cent went to the United States, 10.04 per cent to Canada, 4.53 per cent
to Germany, 2.51 per cent to Porto Rico, 2.26 per cent to France,
1.62 per cent to Great Britain.
Carrying vessels.-The value of Dominican products carried by
ships of American registry was $13,846,015; Norwegian, $3,190,241;
British, $1,025,100. The remainder was transported in Dominican
and French, Dutch, Italian, Spanish, Cuban, and other foreign bot-
toms.
To those further interested in the detailed statistical data of quan-
tities, values, tonnage, carriers, etc., 1921 transactions compared
with those for the year preceding, reference is invited to accompany-
ing Appendix C, with its tabulated statements.

CONCLUSION.

The inauspicious start in collections so far hardly warrants an op-
timistic forecast for 1922 customs revenue. However, the palpably
imperative necessity for a material reduction in cost of operation has
been removed from the realm of conjecture. It already is met and
accomplished.
Respectfully submitted.
