THE AMERICAN-DOMINICAN CONVENTION, 1907

REPORT OF THE SEVENTEENTH FISCAL PERIOD, DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RE-
CEIVERSHIP, WILLIAM E. PULLIAM, GENERAL RECEIVER
OFFICE OF THE GENERAL RECEIVER,
Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, March 14, 1924.
SIR: The report for the seventeenth fiscal period of the Dominican
Customs Receivership, calendar year 1923, respectfully submitted
herewith, reflects a year characterized by improvement in the
financial transactions of the receivership and in the foreign-trade
movement of the country.
COLLECTIONS
The favorable forecast made at the beginning of the year, of im-
provement in customs collections, has been more than realized, for
aggregate customs receipts were $3,625,621.22, as against the budget-
estimate of $3,000,000. This, as compared with $2,961,222.76 in
1922, is an increase of $664,398.46, or a percentage of 0.224. Prac-
tically the entire increase is due to a larger volume of importations,
from which source alone customs duties of $3,545,284.12 were col-
lected-an advance of $651,575.90 over the year immediately pre-
ceding, or 0.225 per cent. This is taken as a most healthy sign of
continued improvement in trade conditions, for, as restricted credits
still prevail, there is nothing of a speculative nature in connection
with importations, as was the case during the period immediately
following the close of the World War. In only three previous years,
during the operation of the convention, has the gain in collections
for a 12-month period exceeded that registered in 1923-namely,
1915, 1917, and 1920-the first two while the war was in progress,
while the last was the year which witnessed peak prices for all com-
Smodities, before the world-wide depression set in.
S An analysis of collections by entry ports and months is shown in
accompanying Schedules 5 and 6, Appendix "A."
DISBURSEMENTS
An epitome of all financial transactions of the year may be found in
accompanying Appendix "A," supplemented by the several schedules
which contain the particulars of all sources of income and outgo. The
Major items of disbursement were for the service of the bond issues
Sand payments to the Government as its portion of the customs
receipts: $1,200,000 was remitted to the fiscal agent for the issue
of 1908; $276,240 for the issue of 1918, and $337,791.63 as interest
on the loan of 1922. This latter amount represented interest for

REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


11 months, as that for the month of January, 1923, was made in
December, 1922. The Government received $1,275,000, which was
considerably in excess of the budget estimate of net available cus-
toms yield. On account of surplus collections the further amounts
for amortization, $200,116.84 and $120,070.10, respectively, were
deposited before the close of the year, to apply on the two earlier
loans.
Custonis expenses incurred for the administration totaled $173,-
550.35, or at a cost to collect of 4.79 per cent. Particulars in Sched-
ules 9 and 10.
OPERATING EXPENSE
For the third consecutive year the expense of operating the re-
ceivership, which embraces the Dominican customs service, was
materially reduced, so that the fact may be stressed in this report
that from the high mark of $261,486.42 in 1920 the sum of but
$173,550.35 was expended during the year 1923, or a reduction of
,$87,936.07. And notwithstanding that the expenses for the year
1922 were $53,231.71 less than for 1921, there was a further decrease
of $10,169.92 in the year 1923, which brought the total operating
expense not only within the convention allowance but to a figure
considerably below that of the last pre-war fiscal period, 1913-1914
($177,768.63). The significance of this unusual showing may better
be appreciated if read in connection with the statement that the
responsibilities and duties devolving upon the receivership have in-
creased since the earlier period, as now it is rendering a fiscal service
to three Dominican bond issues.
Among disbursements made by the receivership for the customs
service are some which do not strictly pertain to cost of collecting the
revenue, but cover extra services rendered the Dominican Govern-
ment. Based upon appropriations made for this same class of work
in past years, before it was transferred to the customs service, the
expenditure for this extra service would be around $20,000 per annum,
but no corresponding credit has been extended to the receivership.
A special item of disbursement, $722 for the upkeep and operating
expense of a fire-protection system on the customs premises at the
port of Santo Domingo, was assumed upon the direct request of the
Government.
In submitting its estimate of probable outlay to the Government,
at the beginning of 1923, $180,000 was the sum indicated for receiver-
ship expenses, but at the same time attention was called to the
necessity of providing for or at least recognizing the extraordinary
expenses which the receivership has incurred since 1917. Not only
was the total operating expense less than the budget provision, but
the additional work referred to was performed without further out-
lay on the part of the Government.






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


SINKING-FUND PAYMENTS
The splendid showing for the year, which produced $3,545,284.12
as duties on imports, constituting customs revenue proper, made avail-
able the sum of $545,284.12 for division, the major part of the latter
sum being applied as further sinking-fund payments on the two earlier
bond issues of 1908 and 1918, respectively. To the former was
allocated $272,642.06, or one-half of the surplus in excess of $3,000,000
stipulated in the convention; and for account of the 1918 issue'
$163,585.24 accrued in addition to the fixed sinking-fund require-
ment of Executive order No. 193. The development emphasizes
again the fact that the Dominican Government is rapidly providing
for the early liquidation of the greater part of its outstanding bonded
indebtedness. This feature undoubtedly had much to do with the
very favorable quotation for Dominican customs bonds on the New
York market, which securities during the past year enjoyed the dis-
tinction of bringing relatively higher prices than obtained for any
other Latin-American Government bonds.

PAYMENTS TO FISCAL AGENTS

Instead of the former practice of purchasing New York exchange
and transmitting same.in the mail to the fiscal agents of the loans in
New York, what is considered an improvement was made by an
arrangement with the local depositary and its main office in New
York, the International Banking Corporation, whereby the latter, on
fixed dates, now makes the interest payments when actually due
each month, similar amounts being charged to the receivership
account in Santo Domingo. Thus the routine is minimized, delays
of mails avoided, and punctual payments provided for the service of
Dominican loans.
RECAPITULATION
As a permanent feature of these reports, Appendix "B" may be
found of interest, as it contains a recapitulation of all financial trans-
actions of the receivership from its commencement April 1, 1905, to
the close of December, 1923.

NATIONAL DEBT

The year recorded the splendid showing of a reduction of $1,389,-
508.60 in the bonded indebtedness of the Dominican Republic,
leaving the balance outstanding of date December 31, 1923, $13,412,-
209.83. Additional payments for amortization, accrued by reason
of increased customs revenue, discussed under separate heading.

With only normal customs receipts, more than one-half of the
entire amount outstanding, represented by the issues of 1908 and
1918, will be liquidated and retired before 1929. A continuation of
the table in last previous report, containing salient particulars of
the three bond issues, is given hereunder.:

AUDIT OF BOND ISSUE OF 1908

In the report for the calendar year 1922 mention was made of
Executive order No. 811, October 12, 1922, by which the military
government provided 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.


2Statement furnished by the Dominican Government.







REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


The work directed was well done and, as prophesied in our report,
proved of value, for according to advices furnished by the office of
the military governor the result of the audit, which was agreed to
by the Guaranty Trust Co., established heretofore unapplied credits
due the Dominican Government amounting to $228,247.31. Read-
justment of the accounts involved was made accordingly.

CUSTOMS REVENUE AVAILABLE FOR THE GOVERNMENT
The Government has always depended upon the customs revenue
for its chief source of income, and the concern of the receivership has
been that the collections be maintained at a satisfactory level year
by year. However, the anomalous situation prevails that an in-
crease in customs revenue does not necessarily mean proportionately
more funds for the Government, due to the provisions of two of the
three outstanding bond issues, that division and segregation of sur-
plus collections over $3,000,000 be applied as additional sinking fund
payments, with the result that from such surplus revenue only 15
per cent remains available for the Government. The effect has been
that the Dominican Government is paying its national indebtedness
too rapidly at a time when it needs additional funds with which to
meet its ordinary expenses, and the increased customs receipts, over
$3,000,000, automatically increase this rate of payment. This situ-
ation should receive careful consideration.

"TO ORDER" AND "TO ORDER NOTIFY" SHIPMENTS TO DOMINICAN
PORTS
Prior to 1922 a few claims, involving relatively small amounts,
arose over goods which had been consigned "to order" having been
delivered before acceptance of draft or payment thereof made. Such
deliveries were due, to some extent, to the congestion prevailing in
the customhouses at that time, and the claims followed the com-
mercial slump which brought about the failure of many business
concerns here as elsewhere.
To avoid repetition of such cases, the receivership issued a regula-
tion intended to protect both the shipper and the carrier in the
absence of presentation of properly indorsed bill of lading covering
any such shipment in question. Provision was made for either a cash
deposit, certified check, or a bond with a bank as surety, in an amount
equal to 50 per cent more than the invoiced value of the merchandise,
and then only after the claimant had proved that the goods were
actually intended for him and that he had a right to declare same for
customs clearance and delivery.
Notwithstanding the action taken, some of the steamship lines,
due either to misunderstanding or lack of full information, discon-







REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


tinued the issuance of "to order" and "to order notify" bills of lading
for Dominican ports, basing their action on the claims which had
arisen as discussed above.
Since 1922 no further claims on this account have been presented,
and it is believed that the measures taken afford full protection to'
both shipper and carrier. Several carrier lines have resumed the
issuance of such bills of lading, shippers consigning goods to one of
the local banks to which the shipping papers and draft are sent, there
being no brokerage firms established here to accept such business.
Practical experience, extending over a period of more than a year,
demonstrates that the governing regulation has had the desired
effect.
ANNUAL INSPECTION

As provided by the general regulations governing the administra-
tion of the receivership, the personal inspection by a representative
of the Bureau of Insular Affairs was made by Maj. William Lay
Patterson, U. S. Army, who arrived at Santo Domingo March 27,.
1923. The inspecting officer remained three weeks, during which.
time he was enabled to visit the several maritime ports of entry,
where opportunity was had to observe the routine, besides visiting:
the customs offices maintained along the Haitian border.
WHARF IMPROVEMENTS
It is gratifying to be able to report that under the direction of the-
Department of Public Works not only have the wharves and piers of
the entry ports of the Republic been kept in a state of repair, but
substantial improvements and additions have been made to wharfing-
facilities for the benefit of commerce and shipping.
At the important port of Macoris a reinforced concrete pier, 660'
feet in length, was completed during 1922, and a double-track railway
installed on the deck of the pier to connect with the sugar estate rail-
ways and the Government's yard near the customhouse.
At La Romana the Government, with the cooperation of La Romana
Central, completed a wharf 184 feet in length,.during 1923.
A stand-tank fire protection system was installed at Santo Domingo
to protect the wharf and the Government buildings. It supplies a
necessary equipment.
FLOUR MILL

An interesting industrial development during the year was the
establishment, by an American, of a flour mill in Puerto Plata, which
started to make flour in July. This is a small plant having a capacity
of 50 barrels of flour of 196 pounds in'a day of 24 hours. Of necessity







REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


the mill has had to import its wheat for grinding, as there is none
grown in the Republic. The flour is of superior quality, being made
from Canadian No. 1 spring wheat, and is sold at but little less than
the imported flour, due to the high quality of the wheat used in its
manufacture. The owner of the enterprise, in an endeavor to foment
wheat growing in Santo Domingo, has, in cooperation with the
chambers of commerce of the principal towns in the north of the
Republic, distributed a quantity of seed free to the farmers in those
sections thought adapted to the growing of wheat. There is but
little doubt that wheat can be grown in the highlands of the country.
The experiment, if successful, would mean another crop of importance
to figure in the economic development.

DYEWOOD, EXTRACT FROM
From time immemorial Santo Domingo has exported dyewoods to
foreign markets, there to be processed and worked up into the finished
dye. An American company has established a dye-extracting plant
near Monte Cristi, which specializes in the extraction of dyes from
campeche and has a capacity of 2,000 barrels per annum. The dyes
made from this logwood are used in dyeing textiles and hides. The
product is shipped to a wide range of countries, including the United
States, the United Kingdom, Japan, and Brazil.

CANE-SUGAR INDUSTRY
The steady expansion of the sugar industry is demonstrated by the
quantities of that staple exported during the past 11 years, as shown
by the table below. While not to the extent that prevails in Cuba,
the importance of sugar in the economic life of Santo Domingo is
such that the price of that commodity may be taken as a fair index
of the financial and commercial situation. It certainly bears directly
upon the volume of imports, for with good prices the purchasing power
of the consumer is broadened.

MOLASSES

Prior to the year 1913 there was no sale for the molasses pro-
duced by the sugar estates of the Republic. Some was used locally
in the manufacture of alcohol, but this took only a small part of the
total output. Being a by-product in the manufacture of sugar, it
becomes a liability if it can not be sold, as it must be handled and
disposed of.
In the year mentioned an American company was fomned to com-
mercialize this commodity. It started in a modest way, with but
one ocean carrier-a sailing ship. The company now operates 23
steamers in the West Indian trade.
Before the enactment of the prohibition law in the United States
the entire 'output of Dominican molasses, aside from the insignifi-
cant quantity used locally, was sold there for distillation. That
market being closed, a temporary market was found during the
World War in Europe, where the molasses was employed in the
manufacture of high explosives. Now England takes the greater
part, where it is used not only for distillation but in the manufacture
of a cattle feed, made by mixing the molasses with bran and other
wheat by-products.
During the war the price of molasses went to 7 or 8 cents a gallon,
but this price, as in the case of other commodities, could not be
maintained. In 1923 the sugar, estates were paid a cent and a half
a gallon.
In 1923, 7,972,351 gallons, or 37,823 tons, of molasses, valued at
$120,669, were exported.






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


COMMERCIAL STATISTICS
An increased demand for commercial statistics compiled by the
receivership was noted during the year. Requests from many quar-
ters were received-from consuls, shipping agents, banks, importers,
and chambers of commerce-asking for particulars of items figuring
in the foreign trade and were promptly complied with. On behalf
of the Government the secretary of finance and commerce expressed
the desire that his department be furnished copies of statistical
returns prepared monthly, showing tonnage, movement, quantities,
values of imports and exports, and countries of origin and destina-
tion, in order that the Government might not have to undertake
similar work at the resultant considerable cost. In former years
the Government .maintained its own statistical section, but now de-
pends upon the work performed by the receivership.
SUMMARY OF COMMERCE
Expressed in tonnage, the aggregate foreign trade of the Domini-
can Republic in 1923 was comprised of 325,065 tons of exports and
167,370 tons of imports, a total of 492,435 tons, valued at $44,287,903,
a value increase of $14,739,051, or nearly 50 per cent as compared
with the trade of 1922. The showing reveals an improved eco-
nomic and commercial condition, which made possible trade expan-
sion generally, as there was an increased volume in both branches,
exports and imports. As in former years, sugar was the principal
commodity, and with the increased prices realized the return of
$18,722,912, for the quantity exported was more than double that
of 1922,. although the production, as shown by the exports, was
somewhat less than in 1922.
It is of special interest to point out that the total value of imports
for the year was exceeded by the value of one product-sugar ex-
ported-so that the trade balance was most favorable to the country.
The difference, $7,797,739, represents a wide margin between the
return from exports and the smaller outlay for all imports.
Discussing the country's agricultural resources in the order of
their importance-sugar, cacao, tobacco, and coffee-it is to be
noted that there was a very decided increase in the quantity of
tobacco exported in 1923 as compared with the year before. The
quantity of cacao was also greater, while coffee was the one excep-
tion which registered a decrease. More encouraging for the future
outlook is the development of new crops which heretofore have not
figured prominently in Dominican export trade. Due to practical
aid lent by commercial organizations and enterprising merchants,
small farmers have been encouraged to grow corn for export, with
the result that during the year about 3,500 tons, valued at $161,680,
were exported to supply the food demand of Cuba and Porto Rico.






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


EXPORTS
Of the total value of exports, $26,042,821, American markets took
$9,823,889 (sugar, cacao, and coffee), an increase of $3,343,748
compared with 1922. However, the relative position of the United
States declined from 42.54 per cent in 1922 to 37.72 per cent in 1923.
The percentage lost by the United States was gained by Canada,
which country now becomes the second customer, in value, for
Dominican exports, by reason of its large purchases of raw sugar,
valued in 1923 at $8,230,511, which was $3,947,179 more than the
value of that commodity exported to Canada in 1922, or an increase
of 92.16 per cent.
England was the third customer, taking a total value of $2,629,950
(sugar, raw cotton, and woods), an increase over 1922 of $1,344,359.
Ireland received (sugar) $1,581,256, France (tobacco and coffee)
$602,779, Germany (tobacco) $582,290, Netherlands (tobacco and
coffee) $474,822, Scotland (sugar) $367,270, and Belgium (tobacco)
$304,656.
Porto Rico received in 1923 a value of $564,702 (sugar cane and
corn), compared with $383,380 in 1922.
For particulars and recapitulation of exports refer to Schedules 11
and 12 of Appendix C."
IMPORTS
By contrast with the year preceding the import trade of 1923,
valued at $18,245,082, represented a gain of $3,927,585, or 26 per
cent. Of all merchandise received the United States supplied the
major portion, carrying a valuation of $13,041,412, an increase of
$2,722,506 over the American trade of 1922. The relative position
was 71.48 per cent of the whole. Trade between Santo Domingo
and Porto Rico has developed in recent years, largely in dry-goods
shipments from the latter place. Such merchandise is of American
and Spanish manufacture. Porto Rico supplied 5.92 per cent of all
imports, with a total value of $1,080,770, compared with $313,408
in 1922. English imports were less than in the year before, $770,022
against $870,627 in 1922, a loss of $93,605. Scotland furnished
goods worth $140,241. The position of Germany was fourth, with
a percentage of 3.38 per cent of the total value, or $616,717, rela-
tively a large increase for the year. The other principal suppliers
of the Dominican import trade were the Netherlands, with $496,804,
,or 2.72 per cent, and British India, supplying rice and jute bags
valued at $465,359. The Virgin Islands, as a point of transship-
ment, are credited with imports valued at $297,773, consisting of
rice and cement. France, Italy, and Spain, in the order named,
were lesser participants. The countries which figure in this trade
are enumerated, with corresponding values relating to each, in
Schedules 5 and 6 of the commercial statistics.

The very liberal provisions of the Dominican customs tariff
encourage importation of a large line of articles intended for the
convenience of the inhabitants as well as serving agricultural, indus-
trial, and commercial enterprises. In this category are to be found
agricultural machinery, railway cars, hardware, building material,
coal, cement, lumber, barbed wire for fencing, plumbing equipment,
electrical apparatus, engines, pumps, sewing machines, crude and
lubricating oils, etc. Total declared value of such importations for
1923 was $4,768,933 as compared with $3,475,466 in 1922, or an
increase of $1,293,467.
Tabulated statements form a part of Appendix "C" and show
particulars of imports and exports for the calendar years 1922 and
1923 of the principal items of commerce. The index accompanying

facilitates ready reference to the different groups and recapitulations,
in order that the statistical data prepared for this report may be
conveniently available.
CONCLUSION

The outlook for Santo Domingo is promising. A very pretentious
system of modern highways, superior to that of other countries of
similar area, affords a ready means of communication between the
different sections and will play a prominent part in the extension of
agriculture. Tillable soil is now accessible for new crops, which will
add to the country's resources.
The marked recovery in customs revenue collections since the
post-war depression of 1920 may be accepted as indicative of an
improved and enlarged commerce.
Respectfully submitted.
