THE AMERICAN-DOMINICAN CONVENTION, 1907

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

OFFICE OF THE GENERAL RECEIVER,
Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, March 25, 1925.
SIR: As directed by the general regulations governing, report of
transactions of the Dominican customs receivership for calendar
year 1924, the eighteenth fiscal period, is respectfully .submitted
herewith. A summary of commerce, with complete statistical tables
of the foreign trade, accompanies.
TRADE CONDITIONS
A betterment in trade conditions generally may be reported for
the year, as increases in both volume and value of the country's
principal export crops created an enlarged demand for imports,
which was strengthened by the prospect of a continuation of good
prices during the ensuing year fqr three of the country's principal
products-cacao, coffee, and tobacco. The stimulus thus given has
resulted in an increased acreage of tobacco and attracted more buyers
for this product. The development may be taken as an indication
that Santo Domingo will produce tobacco in larger quantity, which
will compare more favorably with the product of Cuba and Porto
Rico, and at the same time have the benefit of a broadened export
market. The above favorable survey is warranted, notwithstanding
the fact that the economic condition of the country unquestionably
was affected by the withdrawal of the marine forces of occupation,
which, according to figures supplied by the military headquarters,
were spending locally annually $1,750,000, distributed among items
of house rental in the principal centers of population, labor, food-
stuffs and supplies, and purchases made of tradespeople. These
expenditures, which had been made over a period of years, put new
funds into circulation, money which ordinarily would form no part,
of the ordinary retail trade transactions.
COLLECTIONS
A continuance of the improvement in customs collections char-
acterized the year. What was considered the very favorable showing-
of 1923 collections, as compared with those of 1922, when the increase
was $664,398.44, was duplicated in 1924. During this latter 12-
month period aggregate customs collections of $4,283,750.46 were
realized, as against $3,625,621.22 in 1923, or a gain of $658,129.24.

REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


From a customs standpoint the' fiscal transactions for the year to
which this report relates are to be accepted as entirely satisfactory
and indicative of improved commercial conditions.
A greater volume of imports, to meet the requirements of the
country's expanding commerce, produced customs duties aggre-
gating $4,196,585.15, an amount much in excess of the Government
budget estimate for the year and an increase of $651,301.03 over
collections from the same source in 1923. This larger customs
revenue return made possible the setting aside of increased amounts
to be applied as sinking-fund payments on the outstanding bonded
indebtedness, the particulars of which are stated in a separate para-
graph. Appendix A, with its supporting schedules, will supply full
information relative to collections, the sources, and the importance of
each entry port. Schedule 7 may be referred to for statement of the
collections by ports for the years 1923 and 1924, with gains and losses.
The decline in receipts at Sanchez is accounted for by the trade being
diverted to Santo Domingo, which registered the largest gain.
DISBURSEMENTS
Tabulated particulars of disbursements during the year, made in
strict accordance with the convention or pursuant to special authority
of the Dominican Government, are available for reference in Appendix
A, Schedule 1. Another loan service was undertaken, and commenc-
ing with September, 1924, $15,125 was segregated and applied 'for
account of interest payment on the collateral pledged for the tem-
porary loan of $2,500,000. A total of $60,500 for four months,
September to December, was so applied.
Separate items on account of other loans payments are shown, as
well as expenditures. Among the larger disbursements was $1,200,000
transmitted to the Guaranty Trust Co., fiscal agent, New York, it
being the total of the 12 monthly payments, the minimum require-
ment for the 1908 loan as decreed by the convention. The sum of
$261,415.02 was deposited with the local designated depositary,
fiscal agent, to the credit of the Dominican 5 per cent bond issue of
1918, and $368,499.96 was transmitted to Lee, Higginson & Co.,
fiscal agent of the loan of 1922. For amortization $400,000 was
applied to the 1908 loan and. $309,027.24 account 1918 loan, both
transactions made in December, 1924; $1,265,000 was paid direct to
the Dominican Government as its portion of the accrued revenue,
which was an amount in excess of the estimate at the commencement
of the year. Total cost of operation of the entire customs service
was $185,860.32, and this expenditure, as made of record in previous
reports, included the expenses of the receivership, equipment, -and
upkeep of the entire service. (See Schedules 9 and 10.)
Customs expenses, in terms of the cost to collect $1, were 4.34 per
cent. (See Schedule 4.)






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


COLLECTION EXPENSE
With the increased volume of imports handled by the customs
service, as a basis for consideration of the future needs, at the outset
of the year readjustment of the expense estimates provided for
increases, both in additional personnel and recognition of past
service satisfactorily performed, it being the fixed policy of the
receivership, subject to maintaining the cost of operation within the
authorized allowance, to provide those facilities necessary to insure
proper control and administration. The total cost of operation of
the receivership, which includes the customs service, together with
those extra services rendered as an accommodation to the Dominican
Government, discussed in previous reports, amounted to $185,860.32,
or an increase of $12,309.97 over the year 1923, when $173,550.35
marked the low stage of outlay for this important work, and expe-
rience indicated the desirability of certain increases.
Under existing circumstances the operating expense borne by the
receivership continues to be more than it should be, as explained in
the excerpt herewith from the report of the seventeenth fiscal period
(1923), there having been no change in the situation:
Among the 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 Government. Based upon ap-
propriations made for this same class of work in past years, before it was trans-
ferred to the customs service, the expenditures for this extra service would be
around $20,000 per annum, but no corresponding credit has been extended to the
receivership.
RECAPITULATION
Reference again is invited to a permanent feature of these reports,
Appendix B, with its schedule containing recapitulation of all financial
transactions of the Dominican customs receivership from its com-
mencement, April 1, 1905, to December 31, 1924. During this
period an aggregate of $75,541,181.12 was received and accounted
for at a cost well within the stipulated convention allowance of 5
per cent.
LOAN, 1924
The Dominican Government, as of date September 25, 1924,
entered into a contract with Lee, Higginson & Co., bankers, New
York, as fiscal agents, whereby the latter would take two-year 5Y2
per cent notes of the Dominican Government in an aggregate prin-
cipal amount of $2,500,000 at par. The notes are secured by $3,-
300,000 par value, Dominican Republic 5Y per cent bonds of 1922,
being part of the loan then authorized but unissued. For the service
of this loan the receivership pays monthly the sum of $15,125, which
represents interest at 52 per cent on the total amount of collateral.
It is agreed that the sums so retained by the fiscal agents shall be
applied to payment of interest on the notes, and if said notes are not
in default the excess of each monthly deposit over amount so retained
shall be placed at the disposal of the Dominican Republic. The






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


notes- are dated September 1, 1924, and are payable September 1,
1926. They may be called, at the option of the Dominican Republic,
in whole or in part, March 1, 1925, and on any interest date there-
after at a premium of one-half of 1 per cent. Incorporated in the
contract agreement of the fiscal agency is the formal statement of
the Dominican Republic of its intention to use the proceeds of these
notes in connection with its public highways and public works
program. The amount of the temporary loan is the one-tenth part
of a larger loan of $25,000,000 which the Dominican Government
has at present actively under consideration, with a view to obtaining
the funds necessary to liquidate and cancel all Dominican foreign
indebtedness, as represented by previous 'bond issues outstanding.
The larger loan also contemplates more favorable terms in regard to
sinking-fund payments, and if consummated will make available
additional funds for the prosecution of public works, the upkeep of
highways already constructed, the substitution of permanent for
temporary bridges, and the opening up of new agricultural areas.
Segregation of funds from the customs revenue for the service of
the new loan was undertaken by the receivership, pursuant to
instructions' of the State Department, Washington, communicated
through the Bureau of Insular Affairs.
SINKING-FUND PAYMENTS
Emphasis again is stressed on that portion of the last preceding
annual report which dwells upon the fact that the Dominican Gov-
ernment is paying its national debt at a very rapid rate, as the
increased customs collections of, 1924 accentuated the condition
even more by providing, for a still larger segregation of customs
revenue funds and corresponding payments under this heading.
With total customs collections derived from duties on imports
$4,196,585.15, there was a surplus of $1,196,585.15 over the $3,000,000
proviso of the convention, with the result that one-half of this excess,
$598,292.58, became available and has been applied to the bond
issue of 1908, and a smaller amount, representing 30 per cent of the
excess, or $358,975.54, has been applied to the bond issue of 1918, a
total of $957,268.12 for additional or surplus amortization in 1924,
a very creditable showing and one that may be accepted as evidence
of the country's ability to meet its future obligations in connection
with any new loan which may be negotiated for providing funds for
national development.
BONDED INDEBTEDNESS
The rapid strides made toward the reduction of the Dominican
bonded 'indebtedness, discussed in the report for 1923, were more
than maintained in 1924; in fact, there was a decided advance, when
an aggregate of $2,086,989.04 became available and was applied as
a further decrease, compared with $1,389,508.60 for a year preceding,
a gain of $697,480.44 for the liquidation of the two earlier loans

enumerated below. It is to be noted, however, that there was a
net increase of $413,010.96 in the total of the country's outstanding
bonded indebtedness by reason of a new loan of $2,500,000, con-
tracted during the year, on account of which interest charges but
no sinking-fund payments were made by the receivership. The
tabulated particulars which follow hereunder will be of interest and
afford ready means for analysis of the actual state of the indebted-
ness embraced within the several bond issues:

REESTABLISHMENT OF CONSTITUTIONAL GOVERNMENT

In furtherance of the program agreed upon by the State Depart-
ment, Washington, and announced on July 11, 1922, the provisional
government installed on October 21, 1922, was superseded on July
12, 1924, by the inauguration of the constitutional government, with
Gen. Horacio VAsquez as President and Don Federico Velazquez,
Vice President, both having been chosen by an overwhelming expres-
sion of the will of the people upon the occasion of the elections held
on March 15, 1924. The President had served in the post provi-
sionally upon former occasions, while the Vice President had enjoyed
an extended experience of official life, having been Minister of Fi-
nance for a number of years and a signatory of the American-Domini-
can convention of 1907. 'Control of all fiscal and administrative
affairs again is exercised by the Dominican Government with the
exception of the customs. This service, together with the service
of the outstanding bonded indebtedness, which constitutes a lien on
the customs revenue, is administered by officials named in pursuance
of the American-Dominican convention.
The new Government assumed control under favorable auspices,
with evidence of good will on all sides. It enjoys facilities hitherto
lacking, and the prospect of the country's development along agri-
cultural lines is made more promising by virtue of an extended and
creditable highway system.
Announced as part of the plan of national development are en-
couragement of crop diversity as an aid to the smaller landowner;






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


immigration of the right sort, in order that the idle lands may be
tilled; and the encouragement of foreign capital in the development,
on a larger scale, of the country's resources.
Subsequent to the change in government control, the withdrawal
of the marine forces of occupation began. The last of the troops left
the Republic on September 17.
NEW CUSTOMS TARIFF AND CONVENTION
In August the President appointed a commission to revise the
customs tariff law on imports, with the announced object of provid-
ing an annual revenue therefrom of approximately $5,000,000 and to
afford more protection to national industries and to foster and pro-
mote agriculture in general. The projected tariff has been submitted
by the Government to the National Congress, together with draft of
a new convention with the United States, signed ad referendum in
Washington last- December. This convention is intended to replace
the one of 1907, under which the receivership is now operating. The
proposed convention would allow the transfer direct to the Govern-
ment of a larger proportion of the customs revenue. Both measures
are now pending in Congress.
PARCEL POST
In that branch of the routine importation in the mails of dutiable
effects and merchandise for the trade there has been noted a consid-
erable increase during recent years, and particularly was this evi-
denced in 1924. Added to the convenience and more prompt deliv-
ery, the fact that the Government's recently imposed heavier docu-
mentary stamp taxation, affecting importations through ordinary
channels, does not apply to parcel-post transactions has encouraged
importers to a greater use of the mails for the bringing in of that class
of articles easily packed,, which do not bulk but represent value.
Among such may be enumerated articles of clothing and personal
adornment, jewelry, plated ware, drugs, medicines, perfumery, etc.
By far the larger portion of this is. of American origin, the United
States supplying at least three-quarters of the total. Increased fa-
cilities have been provided and additional personnel employed to
afford prompt customs examination and dispatch.

IRRIGATION
The Dominican Government in December of 1924 appropriated the
sum of $250,000, which is to be expended in the development of irri-
gation projects in the Bani section of Santo Domingo Province, in the
Monte Cristi district on the north coast, and at Santiago in the Cibao
section. It is hoped by means of irrigation to reclaim arid land and
to encourage agricultural development generally. The land in both






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


the Monte Cristi and Bani sections is well adapted to the raising of
cotton, sugar cane, bananas, and the grain sorghums, such as milo
maize, kafir corn, etc. Irrigation in the Santiago section should
further increase the productiveness of that already rich region.
AUTOMOBILE ROADS
The following table will give an idea of the state of highway con-
struction in the Republic:
Miles
First-class completed highways -------------------------------------- 405
First-class highways now being constructed ------------------------- 96
Existing roads which are to be improved -------------------------------253
Projected roads- ---------------------------------------------------452
Santo Domingo, it is understood, possesses a greater mileage of
first-class modern highways than any other Latin-American Republic
with the exception of Venezuela and excluding the urban mileage of
the larger South American Republics. The principal of these, the
Duarte Highway, which has been completed, leaves the capital, pass-
ing through Los Alcarrizos, Bonao, La Vega, Moca, Santiago, Navar-
rete, Monte Cristi, and on to Dajabon, on the Haitian frontier in the
north, a distance of 206 miles, where it connects with a completed
Haitian road leading to Port-au-Prince, which is 215 miles distant
from Dajabon. Connecting with this highway there is one under
construction extending from Santiago to Puerto Plata on the north
coast, and which is the outlet of the rich Cibao district. This branch
will probably be opened to traffic by October, 1925.
Second in importance, the Mella Highway leaves the capital, pass-
ing through San Isidro, Macoris, Hato Mayor, Seybo, and on to
Higuey, thus serving the rich sugar district of San Pedro de Macoris.
All of this road is completed except a small portion between Seybo
and Higuey, which will probably be opened to traffic by April, 1925.
It is intended to build a branch of this road to connect La Romana
with San Pedro de Macoris, which will afford quick transportation
between the capital, Macoris, and La Romana.
The third, the Sanchez Highway, leaves the capital, passing through
San Cristobal, Azua, San Juan, Las Matas, and on to Comendador,
on the Haitian frontier, a distance of 163 miles, where it connects
with a Haitian road leading to Port-au-Prince, which is but 66 miles
distant from Comendador. This highway is completed except for
a portion between Azua and Comendador and will probably be com-
pleted before the end of 1925.
From the foregoing it will be noted that in the near future the
Dominican and Haitian capitals will be connected by two distinct
highways, one via Dajabon, 421 miles, and the other, a shorter
route, via Comendador, 229 miles.

BANKING FACILITIES

It may be stated that the country enjoys ample banking facilities
for the conduct of business and trade expansion. Branches of the
International Banking Corporation of New York, the Royal Bank
of Canada, and the Bank of Nova Scotia are established in the capital
and have local branches in the principal cities.

NEW CABLE

September 15, 1924, marked for Santo Domingo the beginning of
an era of improved cable communication with the outer world.
That date witnessed the formal opening of the new line of the All
America Cables (Inc.), with an office in the capital city, for business.

SUMMARY OF COMMERCE

In every way Dominican commerce of 1924 was satisfactory, as a
survey of the commercial statistics of imports and exports will reveal.
Herewith follows a brief statement of the salient features of the trade,
introductory to the complete summary, with its numerous tables to
supply detailed information.
IMPORTS

Imports for 1924 carried'a declared aggregate value of $21,580,571,
a gain of $3,335,489 over that of 1923, or 18.28 per cent. These
were divided into two groups-dutiable and merchandise admitted free
of duty under the liberal provisions of the Dominican customs tariff.
The former, larger division, was valued at $15,636,234, while free
entries totaled $5,944,307.








REPORT DOMINICAN COTSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


The United States supplied 67.73 per cent of the whole, valued at
$14,616,022, an increase of $1,574,610 over the preceding year.
Porto Rico remained in second place, with 5.79 per cent of the trade,
which consisted largely of American-made goods valued at $1,248,990.
German trade advanced from 3.38 to 5.84 per cent, furnishing goods.
to the value of $1,260,896, as against $616,717 in 1923. England
supplied 4.49 per cent of the whole trade, valued at $968,465. Other
countries furnishing appreciable quantities of the import trade were
the Netherlands, British India, France, Denmark, Italy, Spain, and
the Dutch West Indies, in the order named.
Statistical data covering the entire range of the import trade may
be found in Schedules 1 to 7 of Appendix C, which include compara-
tive statements for the years 1923 and 1924. High points of imports
in 1924 have been assembled to show those articles and class. groups

EXPORTS
Dominican exports for the year were valued at $30,262,896, an
increase of $4,220,075 over 1923, or 16.20 per cent. Of this total
the principal items were: Raw sugar, $21,682,556; cacao, $2,793,502;
'tobacco, $2,279,314; and coffee, $863,531. American markets took
$9,285,184, as against $9,823,889 in 1923, consisting principally of
sugar, $5,517,193; cacao, $2,736,081; coffee, $443,079; molasses,
$163,998; and goat skins, $126,674. Relative position of the United
States declined from 37.72. per cent in 1923 to 30.68 per cent in 1924.
Ireland occupied the second position, with a rating of 25.54 per cent
as against 6.07 per cent in 1923, by taking the one item of $7,727,910
in raw sugar, which product is understood to be destined to refineries
in England. England retained third place with a percentage of 11.30
as against 10.10 per cent in 1923, taking a total of $3,417,053, com-
pared with $2,629,950 in the previous year, comprised chiefly of raw
sugar, $2,999,737, and molasses, $194,336. Canada was the consumer
of one item, sugar, of $3,228,981, thus dropping to fourth place with a
percentage of 10.76, as against second place in the previous year with
a percentage of 31.60; while France advanced to fifth place with a
percentage of 5.29, taking a total of $1,600,848, chiefly leaf tobacco,
$995,879, and raw sugar, $520,962, being closely followed by the
Netherlands, with a percentage of 4.74, which country received a total
of $1,434,853, chiefly of raw sugar, $776,058, and leaf tobacco,
$523,980. Porto Rico was sixth, with a percentage of 2.60 as against
2.17 in 1923, taking a total of $785,942, consisting mostly of sugar
cane, $383,013, and corn, $116,397. For particulars of exports
reference is invited to Schedules 11 and 12 of the accompanying
summary.
MAJOR EXPORTS
In the order of importance the five principal articles forming the
exports for 1924 were:
(1) Raw sugar, of which 220,629 tons were exported, valued at
$21,682,556, represented an increase over 1923 of 51,119 tons and
$2,956,644 in value. Of the total, 79,876 tons, valued at $7,227,910,
were shipped to Ireland, probably for other British ports. The
United States took 50,779 tons, valued at $5,517,193; Canada,
32,378 tons; England, 29,867 tons; Netherlands, 10,806 tons; Scot-
land, 9,744 tons; and France, 6,472 tons. The marked increase in
sugar production was due to greater acreage, which is being added
to each year. A bumper crop was had in 1924, and for the first time
sugar exported passed the 200,000-ton mark.
(2) Cacao, of which 23,142 tons were exported, valued at $2,793,502,
represented an increase over 1923 of 3,212 tons, but with a decrease
of $123,663 in value, due in part to the major portion of the crop

having been shipped before the rise in price in 1924, and perhaps
in some degree to under-declared values. Of the total, 22,643 tons
went to the United States, 178 tons to Germany, and 111 tons to
France.
(3) Leaf tobacco, of which 15,760 tons, valued at $2,279,314, were
exported, represented an increase of $365,653 in value, but a decrease
in quantity of 558 tons, accounted for by the fact that a large portion
of the crop was held by speculators for better prices. Of the total,
6,446 tons, valued at $995,879, were taken by France, while 3,731
tons, valued at $523,980, were shipped to the Netherlands. Germany
received 1,777 tons, valued at $227,283, and the United States 173
tons. Additional acreage of tobacco is now being planted in sections
hitherto unavailable, but now opened up by the recently constructed
highways, and the cultivation of tobacco in the future very likely will
show a considerable increase.
(4) Coffee, of which 2,233 tons were exported, valued at $863,531,
represented an increase in quantity of 835 tons and in value $435,943
over 1923. Of this total nearly one-half, or 1,097 tons, valued at
$443,079, went to the United States. Cuba took 549 tons, valued at
$193,555, while Italy received 244 tons and the Netherlands 167 tons.
Increased prices and greater facilities for marketing are responsible
for this larger yield for export.
(5) Corn, of which 8,605 tons were exported, valued at $S41,539,
which represents an increase of 5,106 tons and $179,859 in value
over 1923. Of the total 5,134 tons were shipped to Cuba, 2,976
tons to Porto Rico, and 432 tons to the Dutch West Indies. During
the last few years the quantity of this product has been increased from
820 tons in 1922 to 8,605 tons in 1924, due largely to the facilities
offered for marketing by the newly constructed highway system.
Complete particulars and details of exports are given in Schedules
8 to 13 of Appendix C, and as an aid to ready reference to the leading
classes of products exported there is subjoined hereto a condensed
table of these for the year, containing quantities and values, together

CARRYING TRADE
Separate schedules (2 and 9), which form a part of the summary,
give particulars of the relative importance of the several lines of mer-
chant marine participating in Dominican carrying trade. Heading
the list for exports were vessels of British registry, which in 1924
transported Dominican products valued at $8,024,918, a marked
gain of $5,323,526 over similar tonnage movement in 1923. Ameri-
can vessels occupied second place, with a valuation of $7,365,287 of
exports transported. Norwegian vessels were third, value carried
$6,400,568. Other lines participating were German, French, Cuban,
Italian, Dutch, and Dominican, and the group "All other,"?' which
embraces Swedish and Danish vessels, was credited with a combined
cargo value of $3,306,290.
On the side of imports, American bottoms brought more than one-
half of the total value for the year, represented by $12,790,248, fol-
lowed by Norwegian ships, $2,248,007; Dutch, $2,095,938; British,
$1,297,073, as the principal factors. "All other," which, as in the
case of exports included the Danish and Swedish flags, was credited
with $1,596,261 declared value of merchandise for Dominican con-
sumption.
Sea-borne tonnage in 1924 reached a total of 633,652, divided be-
tween 192,796 tons cargo of all classes imported and 440,856 tons of
exports, the gain over 1923 being 141,217 tons, the larger portion of
"which, 115,790 tons, was exports.

BALANCE OF TRADE
A total of foreign trade valued at $51,843,467 was recorded in 1924,
compared with an aggregate of $44,287,903 in 1923, a gain of $7,555,-
564, or 17 per cent for the latter period. Balance of trade in favor of
Santo Domingo, $8,682,325 (imports, $21,580,571; exports, $30,-
262,896). Interesting statistics of the trade balances during the 20-
year period 1905-1924 are contained in tabulated statement, Schedule
19 of the summary of commerce, Appendix C, and Schedule 18 con-
tains the aggregate foreign trade by countries, with comparative
tables for 1923 and 1924.
CONCLUSION
The upward tendency in customs revenue collections manifest in
recent years continues, so that a favorable forecast is warranted for
governmental income from this source during the immediate future.
Respectfully submitted.
