THE AMERICAN-DOMINICAN CONVENTION, 1924


REPORT OF THE NINETEENTH FISCAL PERIOD, DOMINICAN CUSTOMS
.RECEIVERSHIP, WITLIAM E. .PULLIAM, "GENERAL RECEIVER


OFFICE OF THE GENERAL RECEIVER,
Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, March 8, 1926.
SIR: The splendid showing made by the Dominican customs
service in 1925 has justified the favorable forecast at the beginning
of the year. The report of transactions of the Dominican customs
receivership for the calendar year, which corresponds to the nine-
teenth fiscal period, is respectfully submitted herewith. Usual
tabulated statements and schedules of imports and exports com-
prising the summary of commerce of the country's foreign trade are
also incorporated.
By way of introduction to a brief discussion of those financial
transactions of first concern, mention is made of Dominican trade,
which was improved by satisfactory gains registered for the leading
items of imports as well as for the major and lesser crops which
supply the country's list of exports. Volume yield of all exports was
increased, and what meant more for the general economic condition
was the fact that favorable prices ruled throughout the year for all
domestic products, with the one exception of sugar.
COLLECTIONS
The upward trend in customs collections manifest in recent years,
since the period of commercial readjustment, was well maintained
throughout 1925. With an aggregate of $4,915,003.16, the increase
compared with collections in 1924-$4,283,750.46-was $631,253.15.
In fact, the year just closed was one of the best of record, being sur-
passed in only two previous years-1917 and 1920.
A development of significance worthy of special comment is
revealed by the fact that the increase in 1925 over the year 1924'
was $631,253.15; that of 1924 over the year 1923, $658,129.24; and
that of 1923 over 1922, $664,398.44-an almost equal annual increased
during the past three consecutive years.
The greater volume of imports, to meet the requirements of the,
country's expanding commerce, yielded customs duties $4,818,446:27,,
an amount far in excess of the budget estimate of the Government-
and a gain of $621,770.90 by way of contrast with collections from.,
the same source during 1924.





REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


Appendix A, with its supporting schedules, will supply full informa-
tion relative to collections, the sources, and the importance of each
of the several entry ports.

DISBURSEMENTS
Tabulated particulars of disbursements during the year are avail-
able for reference in Appendix A, Schedule 1.
Among the principal items were those for service of the outstand-
ing loans. Under this heading there was segregated and applied
$3,082,412.84, and this included $248,240.88, corresponding to 1924
transactions, but not $309,178.03, because the latter amount was
transmitted to the fiscal agent in January, 1926, though forming a.
.part of collections in 1925. Consequently, the amount actually
accrued in 1925 for the loan service was $3,143,349.99, or 65 per cent
of all customs duties collected on imports.
To the Guaranty Trust Co. of New York, fiscal agent of the 1908!
loan, there was paid $1,998,292.58 for interest and sinking-fund
requirements due as decreed by the convention. The sum of
$534,120.30 was deposited with the local designated depositary,
fiscal agent, for service of the 1918 loan which was liquidated during
the year; $368,499.96 was transmitted to Lee, Higginson & Co.,
fiscal agent, to cover interest payments on the 1922 loan; and $181,500
also was transmitted to the same banking concern to cover interest
payments on the 1924 loan, the latter on authority and for account'
of the. Dominican Government.
Direct payments to the Government during the year aggregated
$1,449,000 as its portion of the accrued customs revenue. Total
cost of operation for the entire service was $203,262.43, which
included all salaries, supplies, and equipment of the central office
and of the several customhouses and other incidental expenses.
OPERATING EXPENSE
For administration of the receivership the convention allows 5
per cent of the collections. It has therefore been a matter of concern
that the outlay be maintained at a level under the maximum allow-
ance, having in mind efficiency, and at the same time making possible
official economy. The showing in 1925 was particularly favorable,
the total operating expense incurred during the year, $203,262.43,
or at a percentage cost of 4.14. Compared with the year 1924, when
the collection expense was $185,860.32, there was an increase of
$17,402.11. This is explained by readjustment of salaries, which
were necessarily reduced in 1922 to meet the then marked decline in
customs collections, the necessity for additional personnel, and the
purchase of needed new equipment for the central office and the
several customhouses,






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP 3

As stated earlier and particularly stressed in the report for the
eighteenth fiscal period (1924), there continues as a part of the operat-
ing expense items for extra services rendered as an accommodation
to, the Government, which have the effect of raising the total to an
amount beyond the actual requirements of the customs service.

RECAPITULATION
Reference is invited to a permanent feature of these reports, Ap-
pendix B, containing a recapitulation of all financial transactions of
the Dominican customs receivership from its commencement, April
1, 1905, to December 31, 1925. During this period an aggregate of
$80,441,834.17 has been received and accounted for at an operating
cost well within the stipulated convention allowance of 5 per cent.
LIQUIDATION OF THE 1918 LOAN
In 1918, under authority of Executive Order No. 193, a Dominican
Republic 5 per cent bond issue was authorized. Bonds to the
amount of $4,161,300 were issued *for the purpose of paying off
certain claims against the Government and after approval by a com-
mission appointed under authority of Executive Order No. 60 in
1917. These bonds were payable on or before 1938.
Final payment on account of the sinking fund for amortization was
made in August.and the last interest payment in December, 1925, or
12 years before maturity. The rapid liquidation was due to the
provisions of Executive Order No. 272, promulgated in 1919, that
60 per cent of one-half the surplus customs collections over $3,000,000
was to be applied also toward the sinking fund.
There follows a table showing all payments made by the receiver-
ship on account of this loan:

On April 30, 1925, at request of the Government and under
authority of the Bureau of Insular Affairs, there was deposited to the
credit of the. sinking fund of this loan the sum of $61,526.84, from
funds which had been segregated for that purpose but which other-
wise would have been held until after December 31. This operation
enabled the Government to redeem bonds of that value in June and
thus save the interest from that date to December 31.

SERVICE OF LOANS

From the total customs revenue of $4,818,446.27, derived from
duties on imports, there was applied in 1925 to the service of out-
standing loans $3,143,349.99, almost equally divided between in-
terest charges and sinking-fund requirements as shown below:

BONDED INDEBTEDNESS

The tabulated statement which follows affords full information
relative actual condition of Doniinican bonded indebtedfiess at the"
close of the year, both in the value of bonds outstanding and assets
available for further amortization. With those funds applied, the
total liability for account of all loans was $11,174,545.42 December
31, 1925. Of special interest is the fact that with one loan entirely
paid during the year increased customs revenue also permitted of
greater payments for account of the 1908 loan, so that funds will be
on hand for its liquidation by the end of 1926.

SCHEDULE OF LOANS, 1908 TO 1925
As the receivership has been an institution in Santo Domingo for
more than 20 years, during which time it has served a series of Domin-
ican customs bond issues, it is considered an item of interest and
utility to incorporate in this report a condensed statement showing
the extent to which the customs revenues have been applied on
account thereof, to December 31, 1925.

NEW CONVENTION
A convention was signed in Washington December 27, 1924,
between the United States and the Dominican Republic, to replace
the convention of February 7, 1907, between the two Republics,
providing for the assistance of the United States in the collection and
application of the customs revenues of the Dominican Republic.
Formal ratifications exchanged at Washington October 24, 1925.
In the main, the new convention follows the one of 1907, having
for its principal object the authority for a bond issue to be secured
by a first lien on the customs revenue of the country. Among other
ends sought was relief to the Dominican Republic from the unduly
,onerous terms of the contracts under which the original bond issue
was made which have compelled the country to devote a larger por-
tion of the customs revenue for sinking-fund charges and interest to
the service of such bonds that experience has proved necessary or
advisable.
Nothing definite has been done toward obtaining the loan of
$25,000,000 authorized by the new convention, to provide for the
refunding of the outstanding indebtedness, hence as regards amounts
set aside for existing loans the terms of the convention of 1907 remain
in effect for the guidance of the receivership.
The text of the new convention is published as an exhibit of this
report, Appendix E.

DESIGNATED DEPOSITARY
Since 1917 the International Banking Corporation of New York,
through its local branch, has afforded banking facilities to the receiver-

REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


ship, acted as the designated depositary of its funds, and rendered
an entirely satisfactory service in fulfillment of a contract agreement.
In the closing month of the year the transfer of its banking business in
the Republic was made to the National City Bank of New York, a
branch of which has been established as successor of the former
concern and will continue the same service to the receivership.
PROPERTY TRANSFER
With the reestablishment of the constitutional government there
was presented the problem of providing a suitable official residence for
the President of the Republic. It was decided that the edifice most
appropriate and best adaptable was the central office building of the
receivership, located in Gascue, principal suburb, overlooking the
historic old city and the Caribbean.
The history of the real estate acquired by the receivership and made
possible by official economy and judicious investment of a part of the
unused portion of the 5 per cent allowance for operating expenses
has been made of record in previous reports.
The building mentioned, constructed in 1913-14 as living quarters,
subsequently became the central office. Surrounding it were built
six concrete bungalow cottages which were occupied by the American
staff personnel.
After exchange of correspondence and pursuant to instructions
from the Department of State at Washington, the formal transfer
was made to the Dominican Government of the large building and
four of the cottages. The arrangement made available to the Govern-
ment a residence for its President, now designated as Presidential
Mansion, and quarters for members of the- Cabinet, better and more
pretentious than in many of the other small countries, and this has
been the result of a receivership effort which went beyond the scope
of its original endeavor. Value of the property has increased immen-
sely since its purchase.
The central office of the receivership again is located in the Govern-
ment building, No. 40 Calle Mercedes, formerly occupied by it.
The transfer was confirmed by official decree No. 326, dated
December 10, 1925, issued by the President, which provides that
during the life of the convention of 1924 the office building and two
remaining cottages are set aside for use of the receivership.
It is a source of satisfaction to the receivership to be able to make
of record that what it has accomplished in this respect has proved of
great utility to the Dominican Government.
ANNUAL INSPECTION
A requirement of the convention in connection with the routine
of the receivership provides that the accounts of the general re-
90400-26--2






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


ceiver, rendered monthly to the two Governments, shall be subject
to examination and verification by the appropriate officers of the
Dominican Government and the United States Government.
Pursuant to the general regulations, which directs that a personal
inspection and .examination of all accounts and records of the re-
ceivership shall be made in Santo Domingo by a representative of
the Bureau of Insular Affairs, Maj. Gen. Frank McIntyre, chief of
the bureau, arrived September 1, 1925, and during a stay of 10 days
conducted the inspection.
NEW EQUIPMENT
Both for replacement and better equipment of the service, to aid
in promoting efficiency, there were purchased during the year a wide
variety of articles of the first class, such as typewriting machines,
steel filing cabinets, office furniture, desks, chairs, and fire extin-
guishers, at a cost of $8,653.35. These were distributed between the
central office and the different customhouses. The outlay was a
part of the general operating expense, and explains a considerable
portion of the increase in that item of disbursements.
NEW INDUSTRIES
Ample grazing lands in the interior favor cattle raising, and it is
considered of special interest to make note that among the new
local industries established during the past year was a modern dairy,
"La India," at El Pino, near the city of La Vega, in connection with
which there has been installed the machinery for producing daily a
considerable quantity of butter and cheese all of which finds a ready
local sale in competition with the foreign product.
There was also established at Barahona a factory for turning out
hardwood wheels for casters, with a monthly capacity of more than
1,000,000. It is an American enterprise, which ships its entire out-
put to the United States, where the metal parts are added to make
the complete trade article. Lignum-vite is one of the native woods
found in abundance in Santo Domingo and has been regularly ex-
ported. Now for the first time it is being utilized for manufacturing
purposes in the country.
NATIONAL INDUSTRIES AND PRODUCTS
Santo Domingo is essentially an agricultural country and has few
manufacturing industries, although of late there has been consid-
erable agitation favorable to the promotion and protection of such
industries and certain articles produced or manufactured in the
country. Special interest is being taken by the Government to
increase the production of such crops as rice, Irish potatoes, onions,
beans, and corn. The latter two products may now be counted
upon as among the important crops.






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


Among the principal finished products of local manufacture ex-
ported to any extent are cigars, cigarettes, matches, logwood extract,
cheese, and wooden wheels for casters.
Among those which are not exported in appreciable quantities are
alcohol, bay rum, soap, candles, shoes, hats, wearing apparel, furni-
ture, tanned hides and skins, butter, cheese, and soup pastes. These
are for home consumption.
The principal raw or partially manufactured products exported
are, in the order named, sugar, cacao, leaf tobacco, coffee, sugar cane,
corn, beans, dyewoods, mahogany, lignum-vitw, hides and skins,
molasses, honey, and beeswax.
Reference to Schedule 8 will show the relative importance of each
class of exports.
In November, 1925, the Dominican Congress enacted a law in-
tqnded to offer further protection to national industries in addition
to that provided by existing internal revenue laws and the customs
tariff. There follows a partial list of the articles taxed under that
law, showing rates levied thereon:

SUGAR PRODUCTION
In view of the fact that there exists a difference between the actual
period embraced in what is known as the zafra (crop of sugar cane and
the making of sugar) and the calendar year during which only sugar
shipped abroad, as indicated by the export documents, is listed in the






10 REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP

sugar schedules of exports, it has been thought advisable to incorporate
particulars of production, furnished by the different estates, for the
crop of 1924-25, the season of which started about December 1, 1924,
and the output was the largest in the history of the country. Ship-
ments often are made before the close of a calendar year, and at times
sugar is held in deposit for shipment at later dates, so that exports of
sugar of a given calendar year may have been a part of the crop of the
year before. In the tabulated statement which follows, the name of
each sugar estate or "central" with corresponding production in bags,
is given. Naturally, the total production is in excess of the total
quantity exported, the difference being accounted for by sales in the
country for local consumption.

SUMMARY OF COMMERCE

With the exception of low price received for the sugar crop, com-
merce of 1925 showed an upward and satisfactory gain over the pre-
vious year. Herewith follows a brief statement of its salient fea-
tures, introductory to the complete summary, Appendix C, with its
numerous detailed tables.
IMPORTS
The aggregate declared value of imports for 1925 was $25,339,052,
as against $21,580,571 for the previous year, a gain of $3,758,481, or
17.42 per cent. Dutiable articles were valued at $18,953,778, while
those free of duty carried a value of $6,385,274.
The United States supplied 65.12 per cent of the whole, valued at
$16,502,243, as against 67.73 per cent in 1924, valued at $14,616,022,
an increase of $1,886,221 in value. Porto Rico again remained in
second place, with 6.67 per cent of the trade, consisting largely of
American goods valued at $1,690,578. Germany retained third
place, with 5.89 per cent, valued at $1,493,275. England followed in

relative importance, with merchandise invoiced at $1,206,130, or 4.76

per cent. Other countries supplying appreciable quantities were
British India, 3.60 per cent; Netherlands, 3 per cent; France, 1.98

per cent; Denmark, 1.87 per cent; Italy, 1.10 per cent; and Spain,

1.05 per cent.

Statistical data covering the entire range of imports may be found
in Schedules 1 to 7 of Appendix C. Comparisons with 1924 trans-

actions are made. Imports of greatest volume in 1925 have been

grouped in the following table for ready reference, showing the lead-
ing articles of import, with a value of $100,000 or over, and respective

REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


EXPORTS
Exports for 1925, valued at $26,770,611, showed a decrease of
$3,492,285 in value as compared with the previous year, the result of
low price obtained for the sugar exports valued at $15,447,036 as
against $21,682,556 in 1924.
However, with the single exception of sugar the value of all the
principal items of export was greater than in 1924, as may be noted
by reference to table under caption "Leading exports."
Of the total, American market received $5,608,223, consisting
principally of cacao $3,738,896, coffee $689,289, and sugar $364,384,
as against $9,285,184 in 1924.
Relative, position of the United States declined from 30.68 per cent
to 20.95 per cent. Ireland retained second place, with a percentage
of 20.80, explained by sugar shipments valued at $5,569,283. Canada
was third, with 18.98 per cent. Its purchases of sugar were valued
at $5,080,874.
The percentage of other leading countries, in the order named
were: Netherlands, 9.21; England, 8.88; Porto Rico, 5.16; France,
4.07; Germany, 3.74; Cuba, 2.56; Scotland, 2.54.
As in previous years, the order of relative importance was main-
tained for the six chief items of export, to wit, raw sugar, cacao,
leaf tobacco, coffee, molasses, and sugar cane.
Of these, sugar showed the greatest fluctuation between output and
price received; 301,106 tons were exported, as against 220,629 tons in
1924, but valued at $6,235,520 less than the much smaller quantity
exported in 1924. When it is considered that only in 1924 was the
200,000-ton mark exceeded, the 1925 sugar exports indicate the
great gain made in the cultivation of this staple due to increased
acreage and abundant rainfall. Of the total, 109,168 tons, valued
at $5,569,283, were shipped to Ireland, probably for transshipment;
98,906 tons, valued at $5,080,874, to Canada; 34,198 tons, valued at
$1,856,458, to England; 27,791 tons, valued at $1,334,038, to the
Netherlands; 12,242 tons, valued at $660,864, to Scotland; 1 1,954
tons, valued at $546,266, to France; and the remainder to other
countries.
Cacao, of which 23,482 tons, with a declared value of $3,875,090,
represented an increase over the previous year of but 340 tons;
however, its value increased $1,081,588, as better prices than in 1924
obtained throughout the year. Of the total, 22,580 tons went to the
United States, 299 to the Netherlands, 260 to France, and 213 to
Germany. Z.
Leaf tobacco, 22,260 tons, with a declared value of $2,765,484,
were exported, representing an increase over the year 1924 of 6,500
tons and in value $486,170. Of the total there were exported to the
Netherlands 8,204 tons, valued at $1,026,860; Germany, 6,684 tons,

valued at $793,935; France, 3,697 tons, valued at $459,999; Belgium,
1,977 tons, valued at $224,123; and to the United States, 556 tons,
valued at $90,794.
Coffee, 2,666 tons, with a declared value of $1,294,956, were ex-
ported, or an increase over the year previous of 433 tons and in
value $431,425. Of the total there were shipped to the United
States 1,432 tons, valued at $689,289; Cuba, 793 tons, valued at
$400,085; Italy, 239 tons, valued at $112,536; and to the Nether-
lands, 101 tons, valued at $47,758.
Molasses, a by-product of the sugar industry, was exported to the
extent of 78,030 tons, with a declared valuation of $731,057, a decided
gain over 1924 of 15,142 tons and of $315,780 in value. Of this
product there were shipped to England 36,964 tons, valued at
$288,310; United States, 22,431 tons, valued at $196,059; and to
Porto Rico, 16,201 tons, valued at $226,988.
Svgar cane, also a product of the sugar industry, 179,582 tons
exported, valued at $690,641, as against 99,210 tons, valued at
$383,117, in 1924, an increase of 80,372 tons and $307,524 in value.
These shipments are made to Porto Rico.
There were exported 9,274 tons of corn, valued at $432,965, as
against 8,605 tons, with a value of $341,539, in 1925. Of this crop
practically half was shipped to Cuba and the other half to Porto
Rico; in which islands Dominican corn has become an established
item of trade.
Complete particulars of exports may be found in accompanying
schedules 8 to 13 of the summary; but to afford a compendium for
ready reference by persons interested in a review of Dominican
products regularly exported, there is inserted a special table made up
of the principal articles, in order of importance, having a total value
of more than $?00,000, and the proportional part taken by the
country which figures as the leading buyer.

LEADING EXPORTS, 1916-1925
In the present, as in previous reports, mention is made of gains in
Dominican exports. To give at once a comprehensive idea and
demonstrate the extent of the material progress -in the country
during a 10-year period-1916-1925-there follows a tabulated
statement of quantities and declared values of the 10 principal
articles of the export trade, by year, for the time mentioned. The
outstanding feature is the notable expansion and development of
the sugar industry. Of secondary relative importance was the
cultivation of tobacco.

EEP9IT. 'DOMNIiAN C01UTOMS RECEIVE13SHIP


APPENDIX: E (New Convention)
CONVENTION WITH SANTO DOMINGO TO REPLACE CONVENTION
OF 1907
In executive session this day, the following convention was ratified, and, on
motion of Mr. Borah. the injunction of secrecy was removed therefrom:
To the Senate:
With a view to receiving the advice and consent of the Senate to ratification,
I transmit herewith a convention between the United States and the Domini can
Republic, signed December 27, 1924, to replace the convention of February 8,
1907, between the two countries.
The attention of the Senate is invited to the explanatory statement regarding
the new convention made in the accompanying report of the Secretary of State.
CALVIN COOLIDGE.
THES WHITE HOUSE,
Washington, January 2, 1925.
The PRESIDENT:
The undersigned, the Secretary of State, has the honor' to lay before the
President, with a view to its transmission to the Senate to receive the advice and
consent of that body to ratification, if his judgment approve thereof, a conven-
tion between the United States and the Dominican Republic, signed December
27, 1924, to replace the convention of February 8, 1907, between the two coun-
tries, a copy of which is also inclosed.
For the information of the Senate the following explanatory statement is
made: The convention now submitted has been concluded to meet the desire of
the Dominican Government to effect a new agreement in view of the financial
provisions of the convention of 1907, and in order to facilitate the flotation of a
new loan on more favorable terms which will refund the outstanding issues of
1908, 1918, and 1922, and provide additional funds for highway construction
and other necessary public works.
Owing to the provisions of the convention of 1907 and of certain executive
orders issued by the military government in connection with the loans of 1918
and 1922, the Dominican Government has received from the customs duties, the
principal source of revenues of the Republic, only that portion under a total of
$3,000,000 that remains after the'expenses of the receivership and the services of
the three bond issues have been met and only 15 per cent of any amount above
$3,000,000, the remainder being devoted to the amortization of the two older
issues. Under these conditions these securities are being retired much faster
than the resources of the country appear to permit, and the Dominican Govern-
ment is not receiving sufficient income to meet its ordinary expenditures. To
overcome this the newly signed convention provides that the DominicAA Republic
shall receive all customs revenues up to and including a total of $4,000,000 after
deducting the expenses of the receivership and the service of the new bond issue,
and 90 per cent of all income from this source above $4,000,000. It is certain
that these more liberal provisions will prove of great benefit to the Dominican
Republic.
The Department of State has viewed with sympathy the desire of the Domini-
can authorities to obtain less onerous financial obligations for their country,
provided, of course, that the new convention should contain adequate protec-
tion for the future bondholders similar to that provided in the convention of 1907.
The undersigned considers that this has been accomplished in the convention.
Respectfully submitted.
CHARLES E. HUGHES.
DEPARTMENT OF STATE, .
Washington, December 81, 1924.






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP 87

Whereas a convention between the United States of America and the Domini-
can Republic, providing for the assistance of the United States in the collection
and application of the customs revenues of the Dominican Republic, was con-
cluded and signed by their respective plenipotentiaries at the city of Santo
Domingo, on the 8th day of February, 1907; and
Whereas that convention was entered into to enable the Dominican Govern-
ment to carry out a plan of settlement for the adjustment of debts and claims
against the Government; and
Whereas, in accordance with that plan of settlement, the Dominican Republic
issued in 1908 bonds to the amount of $20,000,000, bearing 5 per cent interest,
payable in 50 years, and redeemable after 10 years at 102Y, and requiring pay-
ment of at least 1 per cent per annum for amortization; and
Whereas additional obligations have been incurred by the Dominican Govern-
ment in the form of the issuance, in 1918, of bonds to the amount of $5,000,000,
bearing 5 per cent interest, payable in 20 years, and redeemable at par on each
interest date as the amount of amortization fund available on such interest dates
will permit, and requiring payment of at least 5 per cent per annum for amorti-
zation; and in the form of the issuance of bonds, in 1922, to the amount of
$10,000,000, bearing 5% per cent interest, payable in 20 years, and redeemable
after 8 years at 101 and requiring payment after such period of at least
$'563,916.67 per annum for amortization; and
Whereas certain of the terms of the contracts under which these bonds have
been issued have proven by experience unduly' onerous to the Dominican Repub-
lic and have compelled it to devote a larger portion of the customs revenues to
provide the interest and sinking fund charges pledged to the service of such
bonds than is deemed advisable or necessary; and
Whereas it is the desire of the Dominican Government and appears to be to
the best interest of the Dominican Republic to issue bonds to a total amount of
$25,000,000 in order to provide for the refunding on. terms more advantageous
to the Republic of its obligations represented by the bonds of the three issues
above mentioned still outstanding and for a balance remaining after such oper-
ation is concluded to be devoted to permanent public improvements and to
other projects designed to further the economic and industrial development of
the country;: and
Whereas the whole of this plan is conditioned and dependent upon the assist-
ance of the United States in the collection of customs revenues' of the Dominican
Republic and the application thereof so far as necessary to the interest upon
and the amortization and redemption of said bonds, and the Dominican Republic
has, requested the United States to give and the United States is willing to. give
such assistance:
The United States of America, represented by Charles Evans Hughes, Secretary
of .State of the United States of America; and the Dominican Republic, repre-
sented' by Sefior Jos6 del Carmen Ariza, Envoy Extraordinary and Minister
Plenipotentiary of the Dominican Republic,in Wa ashington, have agreed:

ARTICLE I
That the President of the United States shall appoint a general receiver of
Dominican, customs, who, with such assistant receivers and other employees of
the receivership as -shall be appointed. by the President of the United States in
his discretion, shall collect all the customs duties accruing at the several customs
houses of the Dominican Repulblic until the payment or retirement of any and
all bonds issued by the Dominican Government in accordance with the plan and
under the limitations as to terms and amounts hereinbefore recited; and said
general receiver shall apply the sums so collected, as follows:







88


-REPORT, DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


I First, to paying the expenses of the receivership; second, to the payment of
interest upon all bonds outstanding; third, to the payment of the annual sums
provided for amortization of said bonds including interest upon all .bonds held
in sinking fund; fourth, to the purchase and cancellation or the retirement and
,cancellation pursuant to the terms, thereof of any of said bonds as may be
directed by the Dominican Government; fifth, the remainder to be paid to the
Dominican Government.
The method of distributing the current collections of revenue in order to
accomplish the application thereof as hereinbefore provided shall be as follows:
The expenses of the receivership shall be paid by the receiver as they arise.
The allowances to the general receiver and his assistants for the expenses of
-collecting the revenues shall not exceed 5 per cent unless by agreement between
the two Governments.
On the 1st day of each calendar month shall be paid over by the receiver to
the fiscal agent of the loan a sum equal to one-twelfth of the annual interest of
.all the bonds issued and of the annual sums provided for amortization of said
bonds and the remaining collection of the last preceding month shall be paid over
to the Dominican Government, or applied to the sinking fund for the purchase
or redemption of bonds or for other purposes as the Dominican Government
shall direct.
Provided, that in case the customs revenues collected by the general receiver
shall in any year exceed the sum of $4,000,000, 10 per cent of the surplus above
:such sum of $4,000,000 shall be applied to the sinking fund for the redemption
of bonds.
ARTICLE II
The Dominican Government will provide by law for the payment of all cus-
toms duties to the general receiver and his assistants, and will give to them all
needful aid and assistance and full protection to the extent of its powers. The
,Government of the United States will give to the general receiver and his as-
sistants such protection as it may find to be requisite for the performance of
their duties.
ARTICLE III
Until the Dominican Republic has paid the whole amount of the bonds of
the debt, its public debt shall not be increased except by previous agreement
between the Dominican Government and the United States.
ARTICLE IV
The Dominican Government agrees that the import duties will at no time
be modified to such an extent that, on the basis of exportations and importations
to the like amount and the like character during the two years preceding that
in which it is desired to make such modification, the total net customs receipts
would not at such altered rates have amounted for each of such two years to
at least one and one-half times the amount necessary to provide for the interest
and sinking fund charges upon its public debt.
ARTICLE V
The accounts of the general receiver shall be rendered monthly to the Ministry
of Finance and Commerce of the Dominican Republic and to the State Depart-
ment of the United States, and shall be subject to examination and verification
by the appropriate officers of the Dominican and the United States Governments.

ARTICLE VI .
The determination of any controversy which may arise between the contract-
ing parties in the carrying out of the provisions of this convention shall, should
the two Governments be unable to come to an agreement through diplomatic
channels, be by arbitration. In the carrying out of this agreement in each in-
dividual case, the contracting parties, once the necessity of arbitration is de-
termined, shall conclude a special agreement defining clearly the scope of the
dispute, the scope of the powers of the arbitrators, and the periods to be fixed
for the formation of the arbitral tribunal and the several stages of the procedure.
The special agreement providing for arbitration shall, in all cases, be signed within
a period of three months from the date upon which either one of the contracting
parties shall notify the other contracting party of its desire to resort to arbitra-
tion. It is understood that on the part of the United States such special agree-
ments will be made by the President of the United States by and with the advice
and consent of the Senate thereto, and on the part of the Dominican Republic
shall be subject to the procedure required by the constitution and laws thereof.
ARTICLE VII
This agreement shall take effect after its approval by the contracting parties
in accordance with their respective constitutional methods. Upon the exchange
of ratifications of this convention, which. shall take place at Washington as soon
as possible, the convention between the United States of America and the Do-
minican Republic providing for the assistance of the United States in the collec-
tion and application of the customs revenues, concluded and signed at the city
of Santo Domingo on the 8th day of February, 1907, shall be deemed to be
abrogated.

CONVENTION RATIFYING AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE UNITED
STATES AND THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC
In executive session this day, the following convention was ratified and, on
motion of Mr. Borah, the injunction of secrecy was removed therefrom:
To the Senate:
I transmit herewith, to receive the advice and consent of the Senate to ratifica-
tion, a convention of ratification between the United States and the Dominican
Republic, as contained in the agreement of evacuation of June 30, 1922, signed
at Santo Domingo on June 12, 1924.
The attention of the Senate is invited to the accompanying explanatory report
by the Secretary of State.
CALVIN COOLIDGE.
THE WHITE HOUsE,
Washington, December 18, 1924.
The PRESIDENT:
The undersigned, the Secretary of State, has the honor to lay before the
President, with a view to its transmission to the Senate to receive the advice
and consent of that body to ratification, if his judgment approve thereof, a
convention of ratification between the United States and the Dominican Republic,
as contained in the agreement of evacuation of June 30, 1922, signed at Santo
Domingo on June 12, 1924.
The following explanation of the convention is made for the information of
the Senate:







90 REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP

During the first half of the year 1922 a commission of representative Dominican
citizens, consisting of Gen. Horacio Vasquez and Messrs. Federico Velasquez
E. Brache, jr., and Francisco J. Peynado, visited Washington to present their
views to the Secretary of State as to the nature of an agreement which might
be reached between the Government of the United States and the Dominican
people which would permit of the withdrawal of the American forces of occupa-
tion and at the same time give the Government of the United States the assur-
ances it required before making such evacuation effective. As a result of these
conferences an agreement of evacuation of the Dominican Republic by the
military forces of the United Stata- .a- a entered.into on Julne 30,, 1922. The
convention of ratification now submitted is contained in article 7 of this agree-
ment.
This convention validates all the executive orders promulgated by the military
government and published in the Official Gazette which may have levied taxes,
authorized expenditures, or established rights on behalf of third persons, and the
administrative regulations issued, and contracts which may have been entered
into in accordance with those orders or with any law of the Republic. Inas-
much as these measures have confirmed important vested rights acquired prin-
cipally by Dominican citizens from the military government during the occupa-
tion of the Republic by the military forces of the United States the Dominicp
representatives who negotiated the agreement of evacuation in 1922 recognized
the necessity of a convention of this nature.
The. agreement of evacuation also provided that a provisional government
should be set up in the Dominican Republic for the purpose of promulgating
legislation to regulate the holding of elections and to provide for the reorganiza-
tion of provincial and municipal governments and to enable the Dominican
people to make such amendments to the constitution as they might deem ap-
propriate and hold general elections without the interference of the military
government. These provisions have all been duly carried out. The American
forces have evacuated the territory of the Republic, and a constitutional govern-
ment, headed by President Vasquez, was inaugurated on July 12, 1924.
The convention of ratification was signed at Santo Domingo on June 12, 1924,
by the plenipotentiaries of both countries. It has been ratified by the Dominican
Congress, which has also, in pursuance of the last paragraph of article 7 of the
agreement of evacuation, passed a law recognizing independently of it the validity
of the executive orders referred to in the convention.
A copy of the agreement of evacuation is attached for the Senate's further
information.
Respectfully submitted.
CHARLES E. HUGHES.
DEPARTMENT OF STATE,
Washington, December 16, 1924.

Whereas, in the month of May, 1916, the territory of the Dominican Republic
was occupied by the forces of the United States of America, during which occupa-
tion there was established, in substitution of the Dominican Government, a
military government which issued governmental regulations under the name of
executive orders and resolutions and administrative regulations, and also cele-
brated several contracts by virtue of said executive orders or by virtue of some
existing laws of the Republic;
Whereas the Dominican Republic has always maintained its right to self-
government, the disoccupations of its territory and thb integrity of its sover-
eignty and independence; and the Government of the United States has declared
that, on occupying the territory of the Dominican Republic, it never had, nor
has at present, the purpose of, attacking the .sovereignty and independence of






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP 91

the Dominican Nation; and these rights and declarations gave rise to a plan
or modus operandi of evacuation signed on June 30, 1922, by Monsefior A.
Nouel, Gen. Horacio Vasquez, Don Federico Velasquez y H., Don Elias Brache,
hijo, and DonFrancisco J. Peynado,. and the Department of State, represented
by the Hon. William W. Russell, envoy extraordinary and minister plenipo-
tentiary of the United States in the Dominican Republic, and the Hon. Sumner
Welles, commissioner of the President of the United States, which met with the
approval of the Dominican people, and which approval was confirmed at the
elections that took place on March 15 of the present year;
Whereas, although the Dominican Republic has never delegated authority
to any foreign power to legislate for it, still it understands that the internal
interests of the Republic require the validation or ratification of several of the
executive orders and resolutions, published in the Official Gazette, as well as
the administrative regulations and contracts of the military government cele-
brated by virtue of said orders or of any law of the Republic; and, on its part,
the United States considers that it is also to its interest that said acts be vali-
dated or ratified; for these reasons one of the stipulations in the above-mentioned
plan of evacuation provides for the celebration of a treaty or convention of
ratification or validation of said orders, resolutions, regulations, and contracts;
Therefore the United States of America and the Dominican Republic, desirous
of celebrating the above-mentioned treaty or convention, have named for this
purpose their plenipotentiaries as follows:
The President of the United States, William W. Russell, envoy extraordinary
and minister plenipotentiary of the United States in Santo Domingo; and
The provisional president of the Dominican Republic, Don Horauio Vasquez,
Don Federico Velasquez y H., and Don Francisco J. Peynado, who, after having
exchanged their full powers, and after having found them in due and proper
form, have agreed upon the following:
I. The Dominican Government hereby recognizes the validity of all the
executive orders and resolutions, promulgated by the military government and
published in the Official Gazette, which may have levied taxes, authorized
expenditures, or established rights on behalf of third persons, and the adminis-
trative regulations issued, and contracts which may have been entered into, in
accordance with those orders or with any law of the Republic. Those executive
orders and resolutions, administrative regulations, and contracts are those
