THE AMERICAN-DOMINICAN CONVENTION, 1907.


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


OFFICE OF THE GENERAL RECEIVER,
Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, March 12, 1923.
SIR: The outstanding feature of the year's transactions of the
Dominican Customs Receivership, corresponding to the sixteenth
-fiscal period, calendar year 1922-report respectfully submitted
herewith-is the fact that with a marked decline in volume of both
imports and exports there was a fair and satisfactory increase in
customs collections. Narrative particulars, supported by financial
tables and statistical summaries, follow.

FOREWORD.
In an endeavor to enhance the value of this report as a medium
of reference for those who may be interested in receivership trans-
actions a departure- has been made from the established form.
This by way of elimination from the text of stereotyped tables showing
aggregate collections, etc., by years, and some rearrangement of
accompanying schedules. Aggregate totals for previous periods will
be indicated under appropriate headings, and as this report is avail-
able in public offices having to do with affairs of the receivership
earlier issues are at hand for those who may seek further data.

COLLECTIONS.
For the third time during the 16 years of operation under the con-
vention a year's collections totaled less than $3,000,000, but it is well
to note in this connection that two of the years, 1921 and 1922,
followed immediately in the wake of the commercial upheaval grow-
ing out of the World War. The inauspicious start gave no ground
for belief that the collections would be larger than those of 1921,
especially in view of the fact that during the first four months of 1922
they averaged less than $200,000 a month. Nevertheless, the total was
$2,961,222.76 for the year, or a monthly average approximating
$250,000. Compared with the year preceding the increase was
$101,356.36. The significance of this lies in the fact that all the
1






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP.


net gain was derived from duties on imports. This may be accepted
as an indication that Dominican trade has rounded the corner and
will continue to improve.
Schedules 5, 6, and 7, accompanying this report, may be referred
to for detailed particulars of collections.
DISBURSEMENTS.

Aside from the consolidated statement of all financial transactions
(Appendix A, Schedule 1), detailed particulars under this heading
may be referred to in schedules following. Of major importance
are the segregations of revenue made for account and applied to the
service of bond issues, now three in number, commencing with the
principal issue of 1908. (See Schedule 9.) The amounts of $1,-
200,000, $286,777.50, and $337,791.63, a total of $1,824,569.13, were
so applied during the year, pursuant to authority of the original
convention subsequently extended. The corresponding withdrawals
and monthly remittances to cover were made with regularity and
promptness, and Santo Domingo as a nation enjoys the distinction
of anticipating payments due on account of outstanding bonded
indebtedness.
Schedule 8, comparative statement by months of amounts paid
direct from customs revenues to the Dominican Government, has
been extended in this report so as to embrace the entire life of the
receivership, from April 1, 1905, to the close, of December, 1922.
This information is considered of value for ready reference, as the
average monthly payments by years are shown, "as well as a reca-
pitulation for the entire period.
With all the intervening vicissitudes which have affected trade,
and as a consequence Government revenue, the customs has been
the one source upon which the State could depend for funds for its
proper functioning.
COST OF COLLECTION.

Amplifying remarks under this head in the annual report for 1921,
in view of the fact that the cost of collection again has exceeded the
5 per cent allowance of the convention, although greatly reduced
contrasted with the preceding year, it is in order to make of perma-
nent record the underlying causes of the development. Based upon
practical knowledge gained during the first two years, when the
receivership operated under a temporary arrangement, in drafting
the convention, to arrive at the expense allowance of 5 per cent the
three major elements of customs revenue were taken into considera-
tion, namely, importations, exportations, and tonnage dues. The
tariff commission of 1919 took as a basis for its calculation and esti-
mate, the customs collections for the year immediately preceding






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP.


(1918), for which the usual customs statistics were available. In
the present customs tariff of 1920 the general average of duties on
importations was reduced 38 per cent compared with the average
1918 imported quantities and invoice values.
Furthermore, the same law abolished export duties, and a sub-
sequent enactment of the military government also abolished ton-
nage dues. The reductions indicated and changes authorized have
meant a dimunition of at least $1,250,000 per annum (actual figures
would be more) in customs collections. From the foregoing it will
be seen that 5 per cent of the amount, equivalent to $62,500, would
have been available as an integral part of the 5 per cent allowance
for 1922.
Obviously, an arbitrarily reduced tariff does not imply a lessening
of routine work which the customs service must perform, whether
the rate on imports be high or low. The military government
recognized the situation, for which it assumed the responsibility,
and by Executive Order No. 796, dated September 8, 1922, appro-
priated the sum of $31,457.73 to cover a part of the over operating
expenses of the Dominican customs receivership for the year 1921.
And in preparing the Government budget for 1922, Executive
Order No. 694, the provision for the receivership was $225,000, of
which amount it was specifically stated that the sum of $75,000
"included the additional expenses for the administration* of
the customs" (5 per cent of the estimated customs collections,
$3,000,000 $150,000).
Hence, discussing the cost of operation from the budgetary stand-
point, the reduction or saving was $41,279.73, the difference between
the authorized allowance and actual outlay. Exactly the same
situation prevailed during 1922 with reference to the so-called over
expense, though to a much less extent, due to the marked decrease
and retrenchment in customs expenses. Likewise, a similar situation
will continue during the present year and until such time as the
economic condition of the country materially improves or the tariff
is refrained.
During the year the total cost of operation for the entire service
was $183,720.27, or 6.20 per cent, which was a decrease of $53,231.71,
contrasted with the expenses in 1921 ($236,951.98). An epitome of
expenses for the three calendar years last past reveals the following:
Total expenses.
1920 (4.17 per cent) ................................................ --------------$261,486.42
1921 (8.29 per cent) ................................................ 236, 951.98
1922 (6.20 per cent) ................................ ................. 183, 720. 27
Comparison: 1922 was 0.297 per cent less than 1920; 1922 was
0.225 per cent less than 1921; 1921 was 0.094 per cent less than 1920.






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP.


OPERATING EXPENSE.
For the informance and guidance of the newly designated admin-
istration, the Insular Bureau, in its communication dated November
18, 1921, pointed out:
The serious problem confronting the receivership at this time is the necessity for
bringing its expenses within the allowance of the convention.
Mindful of the above plain instructions, the subject was given
prompt and continued to receive earnest attention throughout the
year. A result of which, a matter now to be recorded, is that the
total cost of operation for the entire receivership, including the
Dominican customs service, was $183,720.27, compared with corre-
sponding disbursements during 1921 of $236,951.98, which represents
a decrease of $53,231.71, or 221 per cent. It is submitted that this
marked decline in the operation of a service for which less than
$200,000 per annum is the total outlay may be accepted as fulfillment
of the bureau's instructions; and at the same time if the general
efficiency of the service was not improved to a degree of at least
equal to the financial saving effected, it would be in order to admit
that the year's endeavor largely had failed. To accomplish the
result, reductions and retrenchments were made in the several
branches relating to the work and the personnel reduced to the
lowest possible figure consistent with the proper needs of the service.
Salaries of those employees remaining with a compensation of more
than $600 a year were reduced on a basis of 10 per cent and upward.
Miscellaneous expenses for account of equipment, supplies, etc.,
likewise showed the result of consistent economy. Appearing in
amounts expended for account of the respective ports of entry were
items of salary and maintenance of port boats, formerly independent
of and at present not properly chargeable against the customs service.
Suitable allowance for expense of this character would constitute a
credit and have the effect of reducing the total amount actually
disbursed. This particular subject has been treated of in exchange
of correspondence with Washington and with both the military and
provisional Governments in Santo Domingo.
The cost to collect one dollar of revenue for the year was 6.20
per cent. Particulars of disbursements may be found in accompany-
ing Schedule 10.
DOMINICAN REPUBLIC 20-YEAR 51 PER CENT CUSTOMS ADMINISTRATIVE
SINKING FUND GOLD BOND ISSUE.
Pursuant to authority contained in Executive Order 735, of March
28, 1922, after formal assent by the Government of the United States,
as required by the terms of the American-Dominican Convention,
dated February 8, 1907, the military government authorized the






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP.


issuance of bonds aggregating $10,000,000, of which amount $6,700,-
000 were to be issued at once and the remainder to be issued only
after previous agreement between the two Governments. The action
taken became necessary to raise funds for the continuance of the
program of public works, the settlement of outstanding obligations,
payment of the six months' certificate of indebtedness authorized by
Executive Order 713, of January 23, 1922, and for other purposes,
in such a manner as not to increase the present annual debt charges.
The new bond issue required the repayment of outstanding bonds
issued under the authorization of Executive Order 637, of June 18,
1921, and extended authority of the general receiver under the con-
vention of 1907 to the service of this issue. No segregations or
payments by the receivership were made for the service of the
certificate of indebtedness in the amount of $450,000, authorized by
Executive Order 713. That obligation was merged and a settlement
made thereof from proceeds realized from the $6,700,000 bond issue
(Executive Order 735).
Detailed particulars of the monthly payments for interest on the
new issue may be referred to in accompanying Schedule 9. Monthly
interest remittance of $30,708.33, representing a twelfth part of the
annual charge and transmitted one month in advance was made
regularly to the fiscal agents of the loan, Lee, Higginson & Co.,
New York.
These bonds are callable for redemption in whole or in part on the
1st day of March of any year or years after 1930, at 101 per cent of
the par value of the bonds so called; and beginning with March 1,
1930, there shall be paid for amortization the sum of at least $563,-
916.67 each year into a sinking fund for the purchase or call of these
bonds at not more than the above-mentioned price. Stated in
another way, a twelfth part of the issue, plus 1 per cent, will be
applied in annual payments for the retirement of the bonds. How-
ever, before that obligation accrues the entire 1908 issue will have
been liquidated.
The added service now rendered by the receivership, with the
extension of the duties outlined in the convention of 1907, originally
framed to serve one bond issue as a lien and charge against the cus-
toms revenue, calling for total annual payments of $1,200,000, now
embraces three loan issues for which customs administrative sinking
fund gold bonds have been authorized and sold, with a total annual
carrying charge for the year 1923 of approximately $1,800,000.
NATIONAL DEBT.

porate herewith a condensed tabulated statement containing items

outstanding at close of December 31, 1922. The total is $14,800,-

the financial transactions which constitute the principal concern of
the receivership, for which it renders a monthly service to two fiscal
agencies in New York and to the local designated depositary of the
Government in Santo Domingo. The exhibit follows:

AUDIT OF BOND ISSUE OF 1908.

Of direct interest to the receivership is the provision of Executive
Order 811, October 14, 1922, by which the military government appro-
priated the sum of $4,000 for the expense of a complete audit, by an
agent of the military government, of the accounts of the fiscal agent
of the Dominican Republic, Guaranty Trust Co. of New York, in
connection with the $20,000,000 customs administrative bond issue
of 1908. This audit will be for the entire period, from date of original
issue to September 30,1922. It is understood that this is the first audit

REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP.


of the kind attempted within the life of the bond issue mentioned.
The result of the work should prove of value in connection with what
was the principal object for which the receivership was established.
ADMINISTRATION.
As one of the results of first-hand information obtained by an in-
spection visit to all the ports, with the special object in mind of
making the service uniform in connection with routine work, such as
the preparation of reports and records, and with particular reference
to classification of imported merchandise for assessment of duty,
a new series of written instructions, in the form of circular letters,
was inaugurated. Forty-four of these rulings were issued during
the year, thirty-four of which were of an administrative character
and ten tariff rulings. Of the latter many contained numerous
groupings, alphabetically arranged, giving the rate of duty that should
apply to each item concerning which there had arisen difference of
opinion, with variation in assessment. This is considered one of the
most important features of the receivership work, inasmuch as im-
porters can have no ground for complaint when they know and
appreciate .the fact that all merchandise receives the same customs
treatment at the several entry ports. Thus the routine work of the
customhouses has been systematized, a greater measure of control
assured, and necessity for correspondence with officials and importers
minimized.
MISCELLANEOUS FUND.

Miscellaneous receipts from minor sources within the receivership
do not figure as a part of customs collections proper, and therefore
are not available for the usual proportion of operating expense,
decreed by the terms of the convention not to exceed 5 per cent of
the customs collections. It was decided, as of date July 1, 1922,
to establish a miscellaneous fund, to be disbursed by the auditor
of the receivership, of such items, with the particular object of meeting
small parts of the operating expense in connection with the mainte-
nance and upkeep of the receivership grounds and buildings; this
to be independent of the general expense of the receivership which,
as set forth in another part of this report, has, during the years 1920
and 1921, passed and continues to exceed the convention allowance.
Two of the receivership cottages became vacant with the reduction
in the American personnel, and these have been rented to officers
of the Marine Corps, for which rental at the rate of $720 each per
annum is collected. The total receipts from the rental of these
cottages and other sources, for the six months' period ended De-
cember 31, were $1,450.26, against which were disbursements aggre-
gating $1,243.61. Of the outgo a large portion was devoted to the
necessary repairs, additions to, and alterations of buildings; the

principal item being the construction of a reinforced concrete fire-
proof garage. Explanation of this departure is made with the object
of incorporating same in the record, inasmuch as these minor financial
transactions are not shown, in the tabulated statements which
accompany this report.
ECONOMIES.
Coincident with the commencement of operations under the con-
vention, in 1907, the receivership prepared and had printed for offi-
cial account, for use at the ports, an entry form for the declaration
and subsequent liquidation of imported merchandise. This form
was in constant use, and the resultant expense was considerable.
Distribution was gratis. During the past year, in line with other
reforms and improvements inaugurated, an inquiry revealed the fact
that the privilege in question was being abused. The entry forms
used as basis for all customs collections were wasted and often carried
away by brokers and others for private use. An order was issued
that thereafter these blanks would be sold to brokers, importers, and
the public at a slight margin over the cost of printing. The effect
was as desired, loss and waste were avoided, and everyone satisfied.
The receivership now is the recipient of a net monetary gain from what
heretofore has represented a loss.
Further in line with the policy of retrenchment, which made
constant vigilance in the matter of operating costs absolutely neces-
sary, not only were reductions in personnel and salaries effected, but
the purchase of local supplies also was subjected to careful -supervi-
sion. Among the results accomplished may be mentioned reduction
in the cost of blank forms and printing. The total local expenditure
for these items, during the year, was $963.90, as compared with
$4,230.50 for 1921, or a difference of $3,266.60. No requisitions for
printing were placed abroad, nor did the customs service lack for
this class of supplies.
WORK OF PILOTS.
Formerly pilots operating at the ports of entry were not part of
customs personnel, but by virtue of an executive order issued some
years back the positions of captains of the port were abolished, and
the duties pertaining thereto transferred to the customs service.
This entailed an extra expense not properly chargeable to the service,
but it has been so borne. These pilots receive remuneration in excess
of that paid the highest class of native officials. To equalize the situa-
tion, and by so doing effect further economy, it was directed that a
portion of the fees receivable by the pilots be retained and applied to
help meet cost of the maintenance of customs boats and equipment
at the several ports. Of the total amount expended for this purpose
in 1922 the pilots paid $1,699.66, which went that far toward reduc-
ing the cost of operation. The arrangement has proved satisfactory,

with the added advantage that the pilots now give personal attention
to the proper use of gasoline and other supplies employed on the
customs launches, used in transporting them to meet incoming
vessels.
FRONTIER CUSTOMS SERVICE.
The importance of the frontier customs service, for which offices
are maintained at three points adjacent to Haiti, becomes empha-
sized with the construction of roads admitting of easy passage be-
tween the two Republics. Linked therewith is the ever-present
problem of smuggling. This operates in but one direction for goods
of foreign origin, owing to the fact that many articles under the
Haitian tariff are admitted at lower rates than prevail in Santo
Domingo. Dominican tobacco, cigars, cigarettes, and cattle are smug-
gled into Haiti. So far transactions this way have not represented
any great volume, but complaints have come from merchants on
this side, alleging their business is being prejudiced by the clandestine
introduction of goods from Haiti. It is a source of satisfaction to be
able to report that, during the year, numerous small lots of contra-
band were captured by members of the national police force opera-
ting in the three land districts.
The total customs collections on the frontier were $4,745.09, or an
amount almost double that realized in the year preceding. Further-
more, the cost of operation, $6,127.60, compared with $8,732.96,
represented a decrease of $2,605.36, which made this service nearer
self-supporting than during any previous period under the receiver-
ship. The fact always should be appreciated that thd frontier
customs service is purely preventive. The salutary effect of having
zealous officials in charge tends to minimize smuggling or make it
more difficult, although it is physically impossible entirely to prevent
it along the stretches of miles of unprotected and largely uninhabited
territory.
SALE OF REVENUE CUTTER "PATRiA."
Pursuant to authority and instructions of the Insular Bureau, this
vessel, which had been out of commission for more than two years,
was sold on September 20, 1922, to a firm of ship chandlers at the
port of Macoris. Price paid was $2,500 cash. ,Sale was in every
way desirable, for, as had been pointed out on previous occasions, the
vessel was not suitable for customs work, and the maintenance cost
was prohibitive.
It has been the aim of the new owners, after making repairs and
alterations, to operate the vessel in the coastwise trade, plying
between Macoris, the capital, and the port of Barahona to the south-
west. As an additional carrier along the coast, now inadequately
served, the craft should prove of benefit and be a convenience to
commerce and the traveling public.

CHANGE OF GOVERNMENT.

On July 11, 1922, the Department of State at Washington, through
the press, announced plan for the termination of the military govern-
ment in Santo Domingo. Growing out of a conference attended by
a delegation of prominent Dominican leaders, headed by Dr. Fran-
cisco J. Peynado, formerly Dominican minister to the United States,
the summary of a program was agreed upon, to be put into effect
as soon as it could be ascertained whether same would meet with the
approval of a majority of the Dominican people. To further the
plan the President of the United States appointed a special commis-
sioner to the Dominican Republic, Hon. Sumner Welles, of New York,
who arrived at the end of July to take up his work. It was a source
of pleasure and satisfaction to the receivership to place one of the
receivership residences at the disposal of Mr. Welles, and to lend him
such further assistance as lay within its power. As a result of the
conferences held at the capital and other prominent points in the
Republic during the time intervening, on October 21 Sefnor Juan
Bautista Vicini Burgos, with a selected cabinet, was duly installed as
provisional President. He was to hold office for a limited time in
order to carry out the proposed plan of evacuation, during which
time the necessary governmental machinery would bre reorganized
for the reestablishment of a Dominican constitutional government.
The executive officers of the military government remained on duty
in Santo Domingo, for the purpose of assisting the provisional
government in taking over the affairs of state.
PUBLIC ROADS.

The year was notable for the prosecution of public road building,
under the direction of the Department of Public Works. Thus
Santo Domingo is beginning to receive the long-deferred benefit of
hard-surfaced roads, suitable for automobile and truck travel. These
open up new productive districts, which mean more products avail-
able for export, which in turn create an extension of credit for the
purchase of manufactured goods of foreign origin entering into Domin-
ican trade.
On May 6 the Duarte Highway, named in honor of one of the
Republic's national heroes, was opened for public traffic. The road
has a total length of 292 kilometers, and bisects the country from
Monte Cristi on the north coast to the capital on the south. Thus
the iridescent dream of the Spanish conquistadores four centuries
ago, of a camino real (King's Highway) across la Espafiola, becomes
a wonderful reality. Unquestionably this notable improvement will
do much, in more ways than one, for the development of Santo






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP.


Domingo. Owing to the mountainous barrier dividing the country,
the trip from Puerto Plata and the populous Cibao section to the
capital has meant, until recently, a tiresome, lengthy, and expensive
journey. Often political dissensions and alleged grievances, which
might have been suppressed in their incipiency, or the evil cured by
prompt contact with those in control, became political sores of mis-
chievous consequence, owing to lack of dependable means of com-
munication.
In addition to the main highway, described above, work has been
maintained on the Mella Roadway, connecting the capital with San
Pedro de Macoris, the sugar district to the east. This road will be
71 kilometers in length. More than a third of it was completed a
year ago, and the entire road is to be formally opened to the public
inApril of 1923. The first modern road constructed in Santo Domingo
(with funds made available by the American-Dominican Convention)
was that leading from the capital to San Cristobal, a distance of 30
kilometers. From the latter point, during the past year, active
work has been in progress toward Bani, 35 kilometers distant. This
road also is to be opened to traffic in a comparatively short time.
The road-building program is pretentious, and the Government,
subject to its limited funds, is working to the end that the principal
points in the Republic be connected. Plans, surveys, and estimates
have been completed for the construction of a highway leading to
Barahona, the extreme port to the southwest, and also one into the
Seybo section to the eastward, a district favorable for both cane and
cacao cultivation.
The germ of road building, with the material advantages and con-
veniences good roads afford, is at work. A significant feature is the
interest displayed by the provincial governors, who are now greatly
concerned that their respective provinces receive the benefit already
enjoyed by those sections favored with roads. These officials must
know and appreciate the fact that much will depend upon Dominican
initiative and cooperation. They are also aware of the hearty
interest made manifest by the military governor, as well as the pro-
visional National Government, to the end that additional road con-
struction be furthered, subject, of course, to the limitation of public
funds available for such work.
No utilitarian development has so taken hold of the Dominicans.
Those living in sections without good roads are clamoring for them,
and the Government has more good-road petitions than it can meet.
The newspapers have contained articles telling of whole neighbor-
hoods turning out with pick and shovel, under the guidance of local
officials, to help in the work of building roads- in their respective
vicinities. 0

MISCELLANY.

By arrangement with the Navy Department its wireless communi-
cation was made available for receivership messages to and from
Washington. These were sent' throughout the year without cost,
the service was quite satisfactory, and further economy effected.
Dated June 6, 1922, a new contract agreement between the gen-
eral receiver and International Banking Corporation was entered
into, by which the latter continued in the capacity of designated
depositary of the receivership funds in Santo Domingo, but with the
interest allowance on the daily balance increased from 2 to 2 per
cent.
The coast line of the Republic, where nine ports of entry are main-
tained, was divided into the northern, central, and southern inspection
districts, each in charge of an experienced special inspector, with
instructions to make trips necessary for a proper and constant
surveillance of the customs routine.
In keeping with the commercial and banking practice of the capital
and reverting to the former normal schedule, afternoon sessions of
the receivership central office were restored, to the decided advantage
of the public and. the office routine.
Considerable attention was given to improvements and repairs to
receivership grounds and buildings, which now present a very at-
tractive appearance, and, as discussed elsewhere, the expense incurred
was not charged against the cost of operation.
All deputy receivers were changed to new stations, on the theory
that new brooms sweep clean, so that the entire service might benefit
by the increased experience and practical knowledge to be gained
only by a broadening of the scope of activity, and especially in making
uniform the daily practices at the several ports.
At present the personnel of the entire service numbers 170, of whom
7 are Americans, 154 Dominicans, 7 British (colored), and 2 Danish.
Of the Americans, 2 are outside representatives, and of the latter 3
classes, 14 pilots and 4 comisarios de marino were not formerly rated
as customs employees. The total mentioned above is the lowest
number employed since 1908.
With reference to the American officials, it may be recorded that
each was at his post of duty throughout the past year.
SHIPPING.

The year witnessed a plethora of shipping to Dominican ports.
A much greater volume, both in ships and tonnage, was offered than
for which cargoes were available, either inward or outward. Ships
of many lines averaged small cargoes. Typical of this there is sub-
joined list of shipping, with nationality of carriers, calling at San

Puerto Plata and Monte Cristi. The Horn Line operates a line of
freight steamers and the E. Lutz Co. operate German sailing vessels,
which come when freight offers, and usually bring lumber .cargoes
from southern ports of the United States.
SUMMARY OF COMMERCE.
A proper understanding of the Dominican trade movement during
the year requires a brief analysis of conditions which have prevailed
since 1920, and which have affected alike transactions of barter and
sale and the extension of credit.
In its general aspect the year 1922 was considerably better than
1921. The financial upheaval of 1920, which resulted in a lowering
of commercial standards, has made the road back to normalcy slow.
Commercial transactions on the basis of credit are limited. Many






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP.


commercial houses have been forced to suspend business, and others
are still it financial difficulties. Restriction of credit in foreign
markets continued throughout the year, and this resulted in curtail-
ment of the purchasing power which, if enjoyed, would have been
reflected in greater imports.
Dominician merchants, in the fall of 1920, had an unprecedented
amount of goods on hand. Even had 'the abnormally high wages
paid labor and the high prices received for merchandise continued,
it is probable they would have been greatly overstocked. With the
break in prices in 1920 the purchasing power of the native consumer
was greatly curtailed. For instance, the importation of cotton tex-
tiles, one of the most important sources of customs revenue, almost
ceased. The past two years have seen a gradual depletion of the old
stocks, with the result that by the end of 1922 a renewed activity
in importations was noted.
It is thought the greater part of the inevitable liquidation has been
accomplished, and that the majority of business houses are now on a
comparatively stable basis and in a condition to go ahead. The
gradual rise in prices, particularly of cotton goods, during the latter
half' 6f 1922, has afforded merchants a reasonable margin 6f profit
during this period.
On the side of products exported, Santo Domingo, in common with
other countries, experienced a big decline in total values received
therefore, as compared with the year 1921.
After the stress of the trying seasons discussed above it is a source
of satisfaction to record. an advance in: prices obtained 'for the more
important agricultural products of the country during the latter part
of the past year. This inured to the Dominican consumer in the way
of increasing his purchasing power for articles and' manufactures of
foreign origin.
While the sugar crop of 1922 was not so large as that of 1921, owing
to the severe drought, the increase in price has, perhaps, more than
offset the reduced production. The sugar centrals are now on a com-
paratively stable basis. Production costs have been cut down to a
figure which, taken in connection with the better prices obtained dur-
ing the current year, makes the future of that industry certain.
Cacao, the principal source of revenue for the small agriculturist,
brought better prices in 1922 than during the year preceding. The
crop was small, owing to the scanty rainfall, but the price received
permitted the grower to reap a small margin of profit. An average of
about $7.25 per 50 kilos was received for this bean duringpthe year,
as against $5.25 for 1921. The United States takes the greater part
of the Dominican cacao crop, with Germany, now as before the war,
second. The price is determined principally in New York.

REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP.


The tobacco-growing districts of the Republic have shown less
improvement during the year just closed than other sections of the
country, due to unfavorable weather conditions which resulted in a
small crop. Low prices continued to rule. The quality is said to be
better than that of last year. -
While the coffee crop of 1922 was not as large as that of 1921,
it brought a good price, as a consequence of which there has been
relative prosperity in the principal coffee centers of Bani, San Jose
de Ocoa, and Barahona. The price in 1922 averaged from 3 to 4 cents
a pound higher than received for the 1921 crop. Most of the coffee
raised in the Republic is of superior quality. Nearly all is exported,
the United States taking the greater part, only a small quantity of
inferior quality being retained for home consumption.
For the first time an appreciable quantity, of bananas and other
perishable foodstuffs were shipped from rural districts in the north
to the markets of the capital. Thus the small landholder received
a profit in 1922 from products which, before the opening of good
roads, had represented practically nothing of value.
Prices of hides, honey, and wax improved during the year, but the
quantity exported was less than in previous years, probably due to
the low prices which prevailed after deflation, which automatically
worked to discourage production.
FOREIGN TRADE.

Aggregate foreign trade of the Dominican Republic during the
calendar year 1922 carried a declared valuation of: $29,548,852,
or a decrease of $15,650,523 (about 35 per cent), compared with a
trade of $45,199,375 in 1921. Between the two branches, imports
and exports, the relative decrease was much.greater for the former,
details of which will be discussed in paragraphs following. In
general terms, the larger part of the reduced export values 'resulted
from a shortage in the sugar crop, caused by lack of normal rainfall,
coupled with the fact that very low prices were received for the crop
during the earlier and principal months of the shipping season.
With reference to imports, a tremendous decline was recorded in
the value of articles free of customs duty, under which provision of
the tariff enormous quantities of sugar-making machinery were
received in 1921. During that year such free imports were valued at
$11,465,552, as against $3,475,466 for 1922, a decrease of $7,990,086,
or more than two-thirds.
From the favorable position of supplying 83.97, per cent of all
imports in 1921, the United States fell back considerably with a
percentage of 72.07 for 1922. England registered the largest gain
of the year. *






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP.


The adverse trade showing of the United States was still more
pronounced in the matter of exports. Its percentage of the whole
of exports for American consumption was but 42.54 in 1922, com-
pared with 77.70 in 1921, a decrease of 35.16. The United Kingdom
improved its position by 12.07 compared with the preivous year,
and Canada recorded a large gain of 18.08 per cent.
The trade balance for the year was an improvement in that by
almost a million dollars ($913,858) exports exceeded imports, com-
pared with an adverse balance of nearly $4,000,000'in 1921.

EXPORTS.

Value of Dominican products exported in 1922 was $15,231,355,
against $20,614,048 in 1921, or a decrease of $5,382,683 (about 25 per
cent). Of all exports for this year an aggregate value of $13,738,730
was derived from the four leading products, viz, sugar, cacao, to-
bacco, and coffee, of importance in the order named, leaving a re-
mainder in value of $1,492,625 for all other products exported.
The most notable decreases in value were in:

1921 1922 Decrease.
Sugar......................................................... $14,338,354 $9,192,172 $5, 146,182
Tobacco ...................................................... 1,609,192 883.421 725,771
Total decrease..................................... ....................... 5,871,953

It is worthy of special note that of the 171,542 tons of raw sugar
exported during the 1922 season, valued at $9,192,172, 78,576 tons,
valued at $4,283,132, were exported to Canada, an increase of over 50
per cent in the quantity exported to that country during 1921.

The diversion from American markets of Dominican sugar is
directly traceable to the enactment of the new United States tariff
law, and unless some reciprocal treaty agreement is entered into
between the two Governments the entire sugar production will go
to countries other than the United States.






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP.


So important is the sugar industry to the future welfare and de-
velopment of the country that it is desired to restate herein comment
which appeared in the last previous annual report:
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
reciprocal 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.
The low price received for sugar in 1921 continued until about
October, 1922. At this writing (March of 1923) it is being sold at
$5.50 per hundredweight. Compared with $1.86 per hundredweight
received in 1921 and the greater part of 1922, this advance has in-
jected new life into that industry.
Exports of cacao in 1922 aggregated 18,985,322 kilos, as compared
with 26,573,871 kilos in 1921, a decrease of 7,588,549 kilos, but the
product yielded a return of $3,082,948 in 1921 contrasted with
$3,054,071 in 1922, or the nominal difference of but $28,877 in value
compared with the shrinkage in quantity. The advance in price
allowed shippers to receive practically the same return for both years.
Dominican cacao goes almost in its entirety to the American market.
Coffee exported, 2,361,618 kilos, valued at $609,066,'as compared
with 936,084 kilos, valued at $240,502 in 1921-a large increase for
the commodity with little difference in the price received.
Dominican coffee enjoys a reputation and is in demand in Italy
and France, to which countries regular consignments are made, and
it may be recorded that the neighboring island of Cuba is a consumer.
Nearly half of the total coffee exports were shipped to the United
States, and in lesser quantities to Cuba, Italy, France, Netherlands,
and Germany, in the order named.
But little Dominican tobacco goes to the United States, its in-
ferior quality, due to improper curing and handling, and the American
tariff barrier furnishing the reason. France and Germany are the
principal importing countries. In 1922, 7,531 tons, valued at
$883,421, were exported, which was less by 1,642 tons (18 per cent)
than during the year 1921. As a large part of the tobacco crop of
1920 had been carried in storage and disposed of by the Govern-
ment in odd lots, the export figures for the two years following have
not borne a true relation to the crops corresponding.
Statistical data reveal the fact that Santo Domingo supplies the
foreign markets its quota of some 18 products, and these are generally
grouped under two heads-major and minor. Four items comprise
the former, and as' a matter of ready reference these are tabulated
herewith for the 10 years' period 1913-1922:

IMPORTS.

Imports with a declared valuation of $14,317,497 were received
at the several ports during the year compared with $24,585,327
volume in 1921. The decrease was $10,267,830, or nearly 40 per
cent. More than one cause tends to explain the big drop. Re-
stricted purchases of 'all merchandise except bare necessities pre-
vailed. Remaining portions of the large stocks carried over from
1920-21 continued to supply the ordinary demand. In considering
the decline in the value of merchandise imported contrasted with
preceding years, it is well to keep in mind that the cost prices of
practically all articles-this being particularly true of cotton goods,
which comprise the largest increase of imports during the year-
were at lower levels in 1922, so, that the decline in value does not
necessarily mean a corresponding reduction in quantity imported
or consumed. Notwithstanding the big reduction in total import
values for the year as compared with 1921, it is significant and may
be referred to again, that the customs revenue collected by the
receivership in 1922 exceeded that of the preceding year by
$101,356,36.
Within the entire range of imports there were but three which
showed any appreciable increase, all other transactions being reg-
istered under the head of reductions. Leading among the former
class were manufactures of cotton, valued at $2,118,598, compared
with $1,721,571 in 1921, or a gain of $397,027. Dry goods, being a
staple in constant demand, would first show the effect of any improve-
ment in the economic condition. Under the group "hides andt
skins," which embraces leathers, manufactures thereof, boots and
shoes, there was a gain during the year of $105,717, with a total
declared value of $559,012. Mineral oils, which include gasoline,
kerosene, and fuel oil, were valued at $109,997 in excess of similar
commodities received in 1921. There were 121,057 cases of gasoline
and .114,060 cases of kerosene imported in 1922.

The United States supplied practically all flour imported, or 99 per
cent of the total of 108,104 barrels in 1922, compared with 90,820
barrels in 1921, valued at $881,497; compared with $806,300 value
for a much greater quantity in 1922.
Of rice imported there were received in 1922, 426,902 bags (of 100
pounds) valued at $1,518,122, as against 377,081 bags valued at
$1,521,280 in 1921. The United States supplied about 35 per cent
of this staple during the latter year. Automobiles (167) valued at
$106,343 were received in 1922, compared with 112 cars valued at
$107,831 in the year preceding. While American makes of cars pre-
dominated to a marked degree, there was some showing for Canadian
cars, the output of American factories established in Canada.

ical and pharmaceutical products, which include simple drugs, oils,
fats, waxes, and their derivatives, valued at $365,524, and by far the
larger part of each of American origin, were among the year's
imports.
Decreases were most pronounced in the following articles, mostly
free of duty:

The restricted scope of imports is reflected in the fact that the
three principal items of ordinary building trade, namely, cement,
rough lumber, and structural iron, all free of customs duty, were
received in greatly decreased quantities compared with similar
importations in 1921. In that year, 91,821 barrels of cement valued
at $360,591 were received, compared with 65,176 barrels valued at
$188,349 in 1922; and the decrease in both lumber and structural
iron was relatively much more. The former declined in value by
more than one-half the total imports in 1922, of $243,698. While
3,000 metric tons valued at $717,604 of structural iron material of
various kinds were brought in during 1921, less than 500 tons were
received in the year following, with a declared valuation of $72,165.
Building operations in any country may be accepted as a barometer
of commercial conditions, and when construction shows an appreciable
decline it means decreased activities in other lines.

Of the value of imports, $14,317,497 in 1922, that portion subject to
free entry was valued at only $3,475,466, or about 25 per cent of the
total, as compared with approximately 50 per cent during 1921.
Of the total, 72.07 per cent came from the United States, 6.08 per
cent from England, 5.36 per cent.from Porto Rico, and the remainder,
in lesser degree, from other countries.
Additional particulars relating to all imports may be found in the
corresponding statistical schedules 1 and 6, which form a part of this
report.
The alphabetical arrangement of the accompanying summary, with
its many schedules of full detail, will afford particulars under the
several heads briefly discussed in the foregoing paragraphs, as well as
concerning all other articles which figured in the aggregate foreign
trade. Parallel columns for the two years in comparison offer a
guide to changes in commercial transactions of imports and exports.
The nationality of vessels and the importance of the carrying trade
enjoyed by each are shown independently.
CONCLUSION.
At the end of 1922 the receivership, upon request of the Finance
Department of the Dominican Government, submitted an estimate
of probable customs collections for the year 1923. These were
placed at $3,000,000, which figure was considered then, and is still
thought to be, conservative. In direct contrast to the unfavorable
start at the beginning of 1922, due to the depressed economic condi-
tion, the general conditions now prevailing show an improvement, in
that higher prices are being received for the principal exports, notably
sugar and cacao. At this time there is warrant for forecasting
customs collections reasonably in excess of the figure mentioned.
Respectfully submitted.
WM. E. PULLIAM,
General Receiver of Dominican Customs.
The CHIEF, BUREAU OF INSULAR AFFAIRS,
War Department, Washington.

APPENDIX E.

MILITARY GOVERNMENT OF SANTO DOMINGO.

EXECUTIVE ORDER NO. 193.

Whereas, the Dominican Claims Commission of 1917, created by Executive Order No. 60 for the purpose
of investigating andSadjudicating claims against the Dominican Republic, has rendered a preliminary report
to the military governor covering the claims presented and registered but not yet adjudicated, showing that
more than 8,800 claims have been presented representing a face value of about $15,000,000.00, and
Whereas said commission expresses the opinion that many of the claims will not be sufficiently substan-
tiated to warrant payment of the full face value as claimed, so that in all probability the liquidation of the
awards to be made thereof will require a sum much less than the face value of the claims presented, and
Whereas, due to the abnormal conditions at present existing in all financial centers of the world, it is
impracticable to negotiate a foreign loan for the purpose of providing for the paymentin cash of said awards,
Whereas, under the terms of the American-Dominican Convention of February 8, 1907," until the Do
minican Republic has paid the whole-amount of the bonds of the debt its pifblic debt shall not be Increased
except by previous agreement between the Dominican Government and the United States," and,
Whereas, thisincrease has now been authorized, and the consent of the United States of America has been
obtained for theliquidation of the floatingindebtedness of the Dominican Republic hitherto unauthorized
by the United States, when it shall have been adjudicated and the corresponding awards made by the
Dominican Claims Commission of 1917:.
. Now therefore, by virtue of the powers vested in the military government of Santo Domingo, and with the
consent of the United States, the payment of the awards to be made by the Dominican Claims Commission
of 1917is hereby authorized and ordered to be made as follows:
1. The said commission shall transmit all awards to the Secretaria de Estado de Hacienda y Comereio
where they shall be registered and in turn transmitted to the Contaduria General de Hacienda for payment.
2. All awards made by said commission shall be paid in bonds of the Dominican Republic, at par, with
accrued interest; to beissued as hereinafter authorized; provided, however, that all fractional amounts of
such awards of less than fifty dollars ($50.00) shall be paid in cash. The cash payments herein provided
for shall be made by checks drawn on the designated depositary for the Dominican Republic, chargeable
to a special account to be opened for the purpose based on the appropriation authorized in paragraph
three (3) hereof.
3. For the purpose of making the cash payments authorized in the proceeding paragraph, such amount
as may be necessaryis hereby appropriated out of any moneys in the Treasury not otherwise appropriated.
4. For the purpose ofpayingin bonds the awards made by the Dominican Claims Commission of 1917, as
authorized in paragraph two (2) hereof, the Contaduria General de Hacienda is hereby authorized, empow-
ered and directed to issue bonds of the Dominican Republic, in the form and conditioned as hereinafter
provided, to the amount that shall be necessary to pay such awards, which necessary amount shall not be
exceeded. Said bonds shall be issued in settlement of the award in each case in the following order: first,
series M; second, series D; third, series C; and fourth, series L; in the proportional amounts required to
make up the total of the award. Upon the request of a holder of said bonds, the Contadurla General de
Hacienda may issue one or more bonds of the larger denomination in exchange for bonds of the smaller de-
nominations of*equivalent value, but in no case shall bonds of smaller denominations be issued in exchange
for a bond or bonds of larger denominations.
5. Said bonds shall bein coupon form, and may be in any or all of the following series and denominations;
Series L, fifty dollars ($50.00); series C, one hundred dolars ($109.00); series D, five hundred dollars ($500.00);
series M, onethousand dollars (1,033.03); and shall be numbered consecutively beginning with the number

Whereas, in Executive Order No. 193 of August 2, 1918, it is provided that the bonds to be issued in
settlement of the awards to be made by the Dominican Claims Commission of 1917, shall be "redeemed
and paid by series as follows: First, series L; second, series C; third, series D: and fourth, series M. The
number of the bonds of each series to be redeemed shall be determined by lot at public drawing con-
ducted by the Contaduria General de Hacienda at Santa Domingo City within one week on either side

Whereas, the engraved bonds have not yet been received from the printer, and the total number of bonds
to be issued will not be known until all of the adjudications by the Dominican Claims Commission of 1917
shall have been made, and
Whereas, due to this delay in the issue of bonds the fund for amortization has already accumulated and
may be expected to accumulate to an extent sufficient to redeem bonds of series L as they are issued;
Now therefore, by virtue of the powers vested in the military government of Santa Domingo, a sufficient
amount from the general funds in the Treasury is hereby appropriated for immediate use to be reimbursed
from the amortization fund as it accumulates, for the redemption of the entire issue of the bonds of series
L (denomination fifty dollars), and the public drawing to be held within one week of November 1, 1918,
will be considered to have been held, and the entire issue of bonds of series L to have been made available
for redemption and in lieu of the issue to claimants of bonds of series L, the following procedure shall govern:
Hereafter the Government will, in settling claims, pay the cash value, at par and accrued interest to
date of issue, for each bond of series L, the series designated for first redemption, that would have been
issued to claimants by the terms of Executive Order No. 193, the bond itself in every case to be cancelled
and retained by the Contaduria General de Hacienda as a matter of record.
The sums necessary to carry the foregoing provisions into effect shall be pai bby the depositary, upon
orders of the Contaduria General de Hacienda, from the amortization and interest funds provided by

provides for the payment of the awards to be made by the Dominican Claims Commission of 1917, by means

"There is hereby pledged with the consent of the Government of the Umted States, from the customs

of said bonds- and, to the amortization fund for the redemption and payment of said bonds on the redemp-
tion dates hereinbefore provided, the further sum per annum, to be deposited in equal monthly install-
ments, beginning January 1, 1918, of an amount equal to one-twentieth of the total amount of the bond
issue. The sums pledged in this paragraph shall constitute an additional charge upon all customs revenues
of the Republic collected in accordance with the convention of February 8, 1907, between the United States
of America and the Dominican Republic, after their application to the first four objects designated in
Article I of that convention, and before any payment is made to the Dominican Republic. Additional
payments for account of the amortization fund herein provided may be made at any time by the Dominican
Government in its discretion;" and
Whereas certain bankers and other who deal in such securities have expressed the opinion that there
is a possibility of the termination of the American-Dominican Convention of 1907 before the retirement of
all of the bonds of 1918 issued under the provisions of Executive Order No. 193 above mentioned, and the
technical point thus raised has in fact adversely affected the market value of said bonds; and
Whereas the possibility of the termination of the said American-Dominican Convention of 1907 before
the redemption of all of the bonds of the issue of 1918 is wholly dependent upon the amount of customs
revenues collected and consequently the rate at which additional amounts are applied to the sinking fund
for the redemption of the bonds first issued in 1908 under said convention, in accordance with the specific
provision in Article I of said convention reading as follows:
Provided, that in case the customs revenues collected by the general receiver shall in any year exceed
the sum of $3,000,000.00, one-half of the surplus above such sum of $3,000,000.00 shall be applied to the sink-
ing fund for the redemption of bonds"; and
Whereas, in view of this contingency,it is advisable and necessary to provide for additional payments for
account of the amortization fund for the redemption of the bonds of January 1, 1918, so that the market value
of such bonds may be maintained at a parity with the bonds of 1908:
Now, therefore, by virtue of the powers vested in the military government of Santo Domingo, there is
hereby pledged from the customs revenues of the Dominican Republic, in addition to the amount hereto-
fore pledged in paragraph 8 of Executive Order No. 193 above mentioned, a sum equal to sixty per cent of
the one-half of the surplus above $3,000,000.00 of customs revenues from imports and exports collected by the
general receiver of Dominican customs in any calendar year which would otherwise accrue to the Dominican
Government, and said additional amounts shall be applied to the purchase and retirement of the bonds of
the Dominican Republic dated January 1, 1918, in the following manner:
The total of the additional amounts pledged in the preceding paragraph shall be applied, so far as prac-
ticable, to the purchase of said bonds, without distinction as to series or denominations, at prices not In
excess of par value. Beginning February 1, 1920, of the total amount available on February 1st of each yearl
one-third shall be applied to such purchases, and of the remainder available on March 1st of each year one-
half shall be so applied to such purchases, and the total amount remaining available on April Ist of each
year shall be so applied to such purchases. The Secretaria de Estado de Hacienda y Comercio of the D omin-
ican Government, by means of notices published at least once each week during the months of December,
January February, and March of each year beginning with December,1919. shall offer topurchase said bonds
within the limits and on the dates herein specified: such notices shall be published in the Official Gazette of
the Dominican Government, in one of the daily newspapers of the city of Santo Domingo, and in one of
the daily newspapers of the city of New York. Proposals to sell said bonds shall be submitted in triplicate,
on the forms prescribed by the Secretaria de Estado de Hacienda y Comercio, and shall be delivered in sealed
envelopes to that office before ten o'clock a. m. of the dates specified for such purchases, and no proposal
submitted in any other form or manner shall be considered. Such proposals shall be opened in the Secre-
taria de Estado de Hacienday Comercio at ten o'clock a. m. on the dates specified for such purchases unless
such dates should fall on Sundays or legal holidays, in which event the opening shall take place on the day
following, and the lowest proposals shall be accepted up to the amount available on that date for such pur-
chase; if necessary to decide between two or more equal proposals the acceptance shall be decided by lot.
Any person or firm who has submitted a proposal shall be entitled to be present either in person or by
representative at the opening of the proposals. All bonds so purchased, together with the interest coupons
corresponding thereto, shall be duly registered as retired in the records of the Contaduria General de Haci-
enda and immediately cancelled and destroyed. Any part of the additional amounts herein pledged
which, for any reason, is not utilizedin thepurchase ofbonds as herein provided shall be applied tothe amor
tization fund for the redemption and payment of said bonds in accordance with the provisions of E executive
Order No. 193 hereinbefore referred to.
The general receiver of Dominican customs is hereby authorized to make monthly segregations, com-
mencing as of date January 1, 1919, from the customs receipts of the Dominican Republic, of the propor-
tional amounts representing the sixty per cent of the one-half of the surplus above $3,000,000 of customs
revenues hereinbefore pledged and, on or before January 10th of each year to deposit the total of the sums
so segregated during the preceding year with the designated depositary for the Dominican Government
in the special account entitled "Dominican Republic 5% bond issue 1918"; and such segregations and de-
posits shall be regularly continued by the general receiver of Dominican customs until all of the bonds
issued under authority of Executive Order No. 193 shall have been redeemed and paid.
The good faith of the Dominican Republic is hereby irrevocably pledged to the faithful compliance with
the foregoing provisions, and this order shall not be revoked or impaired by any law or decree which the
Government of the Dominican Republic or any authority thereof may subsequently enact or issue, or by
any interpretation thereof. THOMAs'SNOWDEN,
