THE AMERICAN-DOMINICAN CONVENTION, 1924


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


OFFICE OF THE GENERAL RECEIVER,
Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, March 12, 1927.
SIR: Pursuant to provisions of the general regulations governing,
the report of transactions of the Dominican customs receivership for
the calendar year 1926-the twentieth fiscal period-is respectfully
submitted,herewith. As usual, tabulated statements of all financial
accountability, as well as complete schedules of imports and exports',
which form the Summary of Commerce of Dominican foreign trade,
are a part of the report. Brief comment is made of those matters of
greater importance which are suggested in a review of the trans-
actions of the year.
COLLECTIONS
Consecutively during the years 1923, 1924, and 1925 there was an
almost equal increase in gross customs revenues of approximately
$650,000 over the previous year, while in 1926 a decrease of
$200,598.36 compared with 1925 was registered; an aggregate of
$4,714,405.25 was collected in 1926 as against $4,915,003.61 in 1925.
Analysis of the situation reflected in the returns for the year
reveals the fact that the Government received much more than the
difference under another heading of taxation from the same source;
that is, on imports. The shrinkage in customs receipts was antici-
pated and is directly attributable to the effect of Law No. 190,
enacted late in 1925, which placed an internal consumption tax on
a long schedule of imported articles. This tax was payable and
collected prior to the delivery of the merchandise from the customs
and, of course, subsequent and in addition to the application of the
prescribed rates of the tariff. The net effect was to limit and restrict
the volume of several classes of imports because of the increased cost
to the consumer. It is to be said in defense of this additional legis-
lation that many of the articles subject to this tax are manufac-
tured or produced to a certain extent in the country. Hence the
benefits derived by national industries in their endeavor to promote
production and encourage domestic manufactures are to be reckoned
with and considered as an offset to the loss in the customs revenues.

REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


From imports in 1925 there was collected $4,818,356.05 customs
duties. The same source in 1926 yielded $4,627,907.17, or a decrease
of $190,448.88.
While customs collections proper include duties: on imports and
other collections incident to the administration of the customs, the
accounts of the Receivership show certain miscellaneous receipts
which pertain exclusively to the central office. A specimen year of
such transactions may be referred to in Schedule 2 with a total of
$59,820.27, the major item of which, aside from a book transfer, was
for interest accrued on receivership accounts. During 1926 the sum
of $19,679.10 represented interest allowed by the Santo Domingo
branch of the National City Bank, designated depositary for receiver-
/ ship accounts. These receipts, together with the customs collections,
constitute the entire fiscal returns handled by the Receivership avail-
able for segregation and application pursuant to the terms of the
convention.
In Appendix A with its accompanying schedules will be found
detailed information relative to collections, sources, and ~rmoiints
collected at each of the several ports and the relative standing of each.
DISBURSEMENTS

Among the principal items of disbursement were those for service
of outstanding indebtedness. To this end was applied a total of
$2,659,177.99 which included $309,178.03 for account 1925 transac-
tions, but does not include $213,953.58 corresponding to 1926 receipts,
transmitted to the fiscal agent in January, 1927. Therefore the
amount' actually accrued in 1926 for the loan service was $2,563,-
953.54, or 55.40 per cent of the total collected on imports. The
above total was paid for service of three loans, as follows: For that
of 1908 ($20,000,000), $2,013,953.58 was transmitted to the Guaranty
Trust Co. of New York for interest and sinking fund requirements
of this loan which was liquidated as of date February 1, 1927; while
for the loan of 1922 ($6,700,000) there was transmitted to Lee,
Higginson & Co. of New York, fiscal agents, for interest payments,
the sum of $368,499.96, and to the same banking concern, for interest
on:the 1924 loan of $2,500,000, there was paid $181,500 for account
of the Dominican Government and on its authority.
The Government's share of the customs revenues was $1,889,221.09,
of which amount $1,822,336.19 was paid direct and $66,884.90 dis-
bursed by the Receivership on its authority and as an accommodation
in settlement of refunds, bills payable, and for exchange.
In addition to these amounts there was transferred to the Govern-
ment account $39,488.47 representing the unexpended balance of the
5 per cent allowance formerly retained in a special account by the
Receivership. (See Schedule 1 for full details.)






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


* The cost of operation. for the entire service, including all salaries,
supplies, and equipment,for,the central office and several customhouses
was $214,777.60. 1
OPERATING. EXPENSES
For the first time, in accord with the new governing regulations
issued December 5, 1925, for the administration of the Receivership,
a budget of operating expense was in effect and it authorized the sum
of $232,850. The Government in the adjustment of its budget
provided for the same item $235,000. As in previous years, following
established practice of maintaining expenses within the Convention
allowance of 5 per cent of collections, those estimates were not
exceeded and $20,942.66 reverted and was paid to the Government
as the unexpended portion, of that allowance.
Compared with the year 1925, there was an apparent increase in
the cost of operation. Total expenditures being $214,777.60 in
1926 as compared with $203,262.43 in 1925, a difference of $11,515.17.
This increase is largely accounted for by loss of amounts heretofore
contributed' by the pilots to cover partial cost of upkeep of the port
boats and launches, which are maintained for their use. As a matter
of policy such contributions, amounting approximately to $7,000 a
year, were discontinued in April, 1926. Other items which received
attention included heedful readjustment of salaries, purchase of
additional equipment, and minor repairs to customs buildings, most
of which was assumed by the Receivership. Notwithstanding this
showing the Receivership continues to defray a considerable expense
for other service rendered as an accommodation to the Dominican
Government, as set forth on page 3 of the report for the eighteenth
fiscal period (1924).
The percentage cost of collection in 1926 was 4.56.
RECAPITULATION
Reference is invited to a permanent feature of these reports,
Appendix B, containing a recapitulation of all financial transactions
of the customs receivership from its commencement, April 1, 1905,
to December 31, 1926. During this period an aggregate of $85,102,-
958.69 has been received and accounted for at an operation cost far
within the stipulated convention allowance of 5 per cent.
REVIEW OF LOAN OF 1908
The notable fiscal transaction made by the receivership during the
year was the final payment for service and liquidation of the Domini-
can customs bond issue of $20,000,000 guaranteed by a loan nego-
tiated by the Dominican Republic with American bankers in 1908
under the terms of the American-Dominican convention of 1907,
the principal object of which was the adjustment and settlement of






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


the outstanding indebtedness on terms both fair to the Republic
and its creditors. These had presented claims having a face .value.
of more than $35,000,000. The debt was adjusted for something
less than $18,000,000, and a considerable surplus from the proceeds
of the loan was made available for public improvements to aid the
progress of the country and the development of its latent resources.
It was the first participation of the kind by American interests in
the fiscal affairs of the Caribbean countries.
The Convention of 1907, and the modus vivendi preceding it,
arranged in 1905, came at a time when the country's finances were
in a deplorable state of hopeless bankruptcy, brought about by years
of almost continuous revolution and disorder, during which the
national debt had steadily accumulated, with interest charges in
default. There were menacing threats by European Governments
determined to collect by force the amounts due their nationals. To
avert such a contingency, with its accompanying dangers to the
future independence of the Republic, the United States at the request
of the Dominican Government,. consented to act and assumed charge
of the collection of the customs revenues and their application-for
the proper service of a bond issue. The step was taken in support
of the Monroe doctrine and is one of the conspicuous examples of
the beneficial effects of the disinterested application of that doctrine
for the protection of small States and their national integrity and
independence. Operations of the general plan of the convention had
the immediate effect of reestablishing peace. The credit of the
Government was put on a solid basis. Customs revenues increased
and although originally 55 per cent was set aside for the interest
and sinking-fund payments which for the first time were made
promptly, the portion remaining to the Government was greater
than that which it received previously from the same source as its
total customs revenues. The disordered conditions which then pre-
vailed also had made it almost impossible to enforce existing internal
revenue laws.
The assertion is in order in connection with this brief review of
the successful working of the Convention of 1907 that rarely if ever
have the fiscal and economic affairs of a country experienced so rapid
and pronounced a change for the better as proved the case in Santo
Domingo, and the efficacy of the Convention intended as a safeguard
for the Dominican Republic and its future development under normal
conditions far exceeded the most sanguine expectations of those who
sponsored that international agreement.
The turning point for the better in the national and economic life
of Santo Domingo is to be reckoned from the date of the establish-
ment of the modus vivendi and Customs Receivership in 1905, con-
cerning which the Hon. Emiliano Tejera, then minister of foreign






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


relations, in his annual report to his Government for that year
stated:
The day will come when the Convention of the 7th of February and the modus
vivendi will be appreciated to their full value. Both agreements are the results
of the purest and most conscientious patriotism.
During the intervening period development of the country's
resources has been enhanced, greater land areas put under cultiva-
tion, both by local and by foreign interests. Capital has been
attracted by the prospects for peace and safety. Earning power of
the people extended and the purchasing power increased which has
resulted in greater consumption of the necessities and comforts 6f
life, most of which are imported. The foreign trade advanced from
an aggregate of less than ten millions in 1905, to more than forty-
eight millions in 1926.
The fiscal ,agency agreement made pursuant to the convention
required annual payments of $1,000,000 for interest, $200,000 for
amortization and in addition, for amortization, one-half of collec-
tions exceeding $3,000,000 in any calendar year. The first payment
of $100,000 was made in January, 1908. This rate of payment was
continued regularly together with the provisional amounts as accrued
throughout a period of 19 years. It was provided that as fast as
bonds were purchased the surplus from interest payments would
revert to the sinking fund, which surplus, together with the fixed
amortization payments, made possible the rapid reduction of the
principal, so that the bond issue negotiated in 1908 to mature in 1958,
was liquidated and canceled as of date February 1, 1927, or 31 years
in advance of its authorized maturity. Bonds outstanding on
February 1 were redeemed at 102 / as stipulated in the convention.
By reason of the proviso of the Convention which stipulated that
50 per cent of any excess collections over $3,000,000 in a year be
paid into the sinking fund, the Government was able to liquidate this
loan in less than half the time anticipated by those who framed the
Convention. Had the fact been discounted what the increase would
be, this additional provision probably would have been fixed at a
less onerous amount. By virtue of it $8,566,608.18 was applied to
the sinking fund, which together with the surplus from interest pay-
ments, accounts for the rapid payment of the principal.
The accompanying condensed statement reveals the magnitude of
the operation during the period discussed:
Interest, $1,000,000 annually for 19 years----------------- $19, 000, 000. 00
Amortization, $200,000 annually for 19 years.. $3, 800, 000. 00
50 per cent of excess over $3,000,000 collected
each year since 1908 ---------------------................ 8, 566, 608. 18
12, 366, 608. 18
Total paid------------------........................................ 31, 366, 608. 18





REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


If there be deducted the face value of the loan ($20,000,000), frbm
the total of service payments shown above, it will be noted that the
actual cost to the Dominican Republic was $11,366,608.18 for the
amount borrowed, a transaction necessary for the rehabilitation of
its finances and reestablishment of the national credit. Also there
should be taken into account other, benefits to the country which
accrued and can not be expressed in monetary terms.
All payments made by the Receivership for this loan were to 'the
Guaranty Trust Co. of New York, which has acted as fiscal agent,
,and occasion is taken in this review to make of record the apprecia-
tion, of the service rendered which, was considered in every way
satisfactory. : ,. ,
SALEE OF, COLLATERAL
The Receivership report for 1924 discussed a contract between the
Dominican 'Government arid Lee, Higginson & Co., bankers, New
York, fiscal agent of the Dominican loan of 1922, for a loan of
$2,500,000, secured by two short term notes to run two years, interest
at 5%2 per cent, for which there was pledged as collateral Dominicai
bonds unissued, par value, $3,300,000 which represented remainder
of amount authorized for the issue of 1922.
In'April, 1926, the Government, in order to take up the two notes
before maturity and provide funds to be applied to public works,
principally highways under consrtuction, sold the collateral at the
'Very attractive price of 95.76 net;'which transaction compares "very
favorably with earlier sales and illustrates again' the healthy coindi-
tion of the Dominican national credit'when it is stated' that the
larger portion of the bond issue of 1922 when put on the market
-during the first part of that year was' sold at 9012. The sale of this
'collateral did not 'affect the interest 'carrying charges for' which
'payments are made by the Receivership as the same service has been
renderedd since the collateral was pledged in 1924, making' a total
amount of $10,000,000' outstanding authorized by Executive Order
No. 735.
BOND ISSUE OF 1926
The pretentious program of public improvements outlined for the
country by the actual Government calls for an expenditure far beyond
the capacity of its ordinary fiscal income and very properly provision
is made that the payment for such work be spread over a period of
years. To accomplish this, the new Convention ratified between the
United States and the Dominican Republic, December, 1924, recog-
nized authority for the latter to contract a new loan in an amount '1ot
to exceed $25,000,000. The principal object of the Convention was
to provide ways and means for refunding two of the earlier Dominican
bond issues for which the customs revenues were pledged as a guar-
anty, but as these bonds were rapidly being retired by increased sinking

fund payments, it so happened that before action was taken by the:
Dominican Congress for the new bond issue, the prior issue of 1918
and that of 1908 had been entirely paid off. That left only the item of
public works to be provided for.
A wide range is embraced in the general plan of the Government and
the accomplishment of which will mean much for the country and for
which it is proposed to apply the net proceeds of the sale of this bond
issue, as outlined in the following schedule:
Aqueduct for city of Santo Domingo ------------------------- $2, 500, 000
Improvement and dredging ports of Santo Domingo, Puerto Plata,
and Macoris ---------- --------------------------------- 2, 000, 000
Roads and highways --------------------------------------2, 500, 000
Irrigation and colonization --------------------------------- 1, 600, 000
Construction of schoolhouses --------------------------------- 200, 000
Initial appropriation for agricultural bank ...---------------------- 500,000
Law No. 516 enacted by Congress, October, 1926, authorized a loan
of ten millions. Subsequent legislation decreed that this loan be
contracted in two or more parts. Bids were called for an issue of
five millions, for which the competition was most keen, there being a
large number of offers by American and other banking interests.
The proposal of Lee, Higginson & Co., Chicago, was accepted as
offering the most favorable terms. Annual interest, 5 2 per cent;
sale price, 98.07. The enacting law provides that the issue be for-
14 years, bonds to date from October 1, 1926, callable after October 1,
1930, premium of 1 per cent. Principal, interest, and premium pay-
able in gold coin of the United States, bonds to be in coupon form in
denominations of $1,000 and $500 each, the loan being guaranteed by
the customs revenues of the Dominican Republic collected and applied
by the Customs Receivership under the terms of the Convention of
1924.
The price at which this issue was sold is significant, higher than that
paid for like securities of any other Latin American country, and
indicates the safety felt by bankers for the money so invested, to be
taken as a reflection favorable to the credit now enjoyed by the
Dominican Republic.
This is the seventh loan to be served by the Receivership since its
inception in 1905, during which period four of these have been paid
off or merged with others. The three now in force are those of 1922,
$6,700,000; 1926, $3,300,000 and 1926, $5,000,000, a total of exactly
$15,000,000, on which amortization payments do not begin until 1930.

5 PER CENT ALLOWANCE FUND

In 1911 upon the occasion of a visit to the Receivership by Secretary
of War Stimson, that official gave necessary approval to the plan and
authority for the segregation and accumulation of the unexpended
portion of the 5 per cent allowance, the fund to be employed for
certain specific purposes, the acquisition of a suitable office building





REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


being the principal object. The development of the general scheme
involved worked out most satisfactorily and the material benefits
which have accrued to the Government are of a lasting nature-valu-
able real estate and improvements.
From 1905 to 1911 the unexpended portion of the convention
allowance was delivered to the Government. It received during
that period from that source $206,550.71.
The total segregated from the expense allowance to credit this fund
was $517,377.93, from which $467,759.19 was expended for the pur-
poses detailed on page 23 of the annual report for 1921 and in the
* schedules corresponding in subsequent printed reports.
A balance of $39,488.47 remaining in this fund on April 14, 1926,
was transferred to the Government in accordance with the general
regulations issued December 5, 1925, governing the Receivership
under the new convention of 1924. See Schedule No. 13 for final
details of this account.
AGRICULTURAL STATIONS

The Government, through its department of agriculture under the
competent direction of Secretary Rafael A. Espaillat, has established
experimental stations at many advantageous points in the Republic,
namely: Santana (Guayubin), Puerto Plata, Pontezuela (Santiago),
Valverde (Mao), Moca, La Vega, San Francisco de Macoris, Cabral
(Barahona), Azua, San Juan de la Maguana, Bani, San Cristobal, La
Enea (Higuey), Samana.
Experts in the several branches of agriculture are employed and
at these stations carry on extensive experiments for the improvement
of crops and give demonstrations for the benefit and instruction of
the farmers. The efforts in this direction already have shown posi-
tive results as evidenced by constantly increasing quantity and im-
proved quality of minor crops, such as corn, beans, rice, onions, and
other vegetables grown both for local consumption and for some
of which an export trade is being developed.
Attention is being directed to bettering the staple crops-coffee,
cacao, and tobacco-and to protect the reputation of these Dominican
products in foreign markets. An inspection is maintained of export
shipments.
The large experimental station formerly located at Jaina, near the
capital, was removed to the more fertile Cibao regions and estab-
lished at Moca, which is considered the center of the country's
richest agricultural section. This station is under the immediate
direction of two well-known experts in their line, Drs. R. Ciferri and
A. E. Barthe, and with it a college has' been established at which a
large number of young men are receiving 'instruction in modern
methods of agriculture. A Government undertaking of the kind will'






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


bring big returns to the country at no distant date in increased pro-
duction and a more widespread prosperity.
Another branch to which the department of agriculture is giving
its attention is the improvement of livestock. Purebred cattle
horses, and hogs have been acquired in considerable numbers and
distributed to several breeding stations throughout the Republic
under care of experts.
These departments are conducted in connection with the experi-
mental stations mentioned above, but at Hato Mayor and San Juan
are independent establishments. The service is rendered free of
charge and will result in better and more valuable breeds of domestic
animals.
Suitable immigration for the country figures among the efforts of
Secretary Espaillat. Due to his initiative two colonies have been
established, one at Santana,, near Guayubin, in the Monte Cristi
Province, and the other at Bonao Arriba, near the town of Bonao, in
the La Vega Province, where a considerable number of immigrants;
and their families have been located and furnished neat and com-
fortable cottages, plots of land, and the necessary tools and assistance
to give them a start.
The Government recognizes the necessity for the coming of im-
migrants to Santo Domingo, and to that end efforts are being made to
attract a desirable class. The two colonies already established will
serve as models and induce other home seekers to this fertile field for
agricultural pursuits.
PORT IMPROVEMENTS
As shipping bears such close relation to commerce, the develop-
ment of which is a matter of concern to the Receivership, it is always
a source of much satisfaction to make mention of improved shipping
facilities.
Of the proceeds of the loan of $10,000,000 authorized under law
No. 516, two millions were set aside for port improvements at Santo,
Domingo, Puerto Plata, and Macoris. These contemplate dredging
at each of the ports mentioned, and at Santo Domingo the construc-
tion of a breakwater, to afford a deeper channel. Due to the depth at
the mouth of the Ozama River, which serves as the harbor, entrance
is denied to the docks to vessels drawing over 15 feet. Shipping
interests and the public generally will be benefited by the work out-
lined, which will give the capital better docking facilities.
The improvements at Macoris contemplate deepening the channel.
Like the condition at Santo Domingo, the depth of water at Macoris
prevents the inner port being used by vessels drawing over 15 feet.
As this is the shipping point for the large sugar section and from
which by far the largest tonnage is exported, these improvements
will mean much for commerce.






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


At Puerto Plata the plan anticipates the construction of new
docks and warehouses at a more protected part of the inner harbor and
make them available for vessels of deep draft. The preliminary
studies for these projects have been under consideration by com-
petent engineers for some months and it is proposed that the work
will commence during 1927, necessarily extending over a considerable
period.
WATER WORKS
An agitation has been on for many years for a modern water-supply
system for Santo Domingo, the capital of the Republic, and the hopes
of the people are now to be realized. A contract was let December
9, 1926, to the firm of Adriano Gonzalez & Miguel Ferrer, of Porto
Rico, for the construction of this important public utility, for which
the Government has set apart $2,500,000. The project also provides
for a sewerage system for the city and its suburbs, and the resur-
facing with tarvia of all streets in which excavations are necessary
for the laying of pipes and connections.
AUTOMATIC TELEPHONE SYSTEM
Another important public improvement in the governmental
program provides for an automatic telephone system to be installed
in the capital, and the contract has. been let under which the work
will be concluded in 1927. It is the intention later to extend the
system to other cities and towns of the Republic, and thus make
available interurban telephone communication for the convenience of
the general public. The practical worth of this utility to the business,
economic, and social life of the country can not be overestimated.
MOTOR LAUNCHES
Since 1918, when the offices of port captains were abolished and
their duties transferred to the customs service, the Receivership has
provided and maintained at each port either a motor launch or row-
boat for use of the pilots and customs officials. With long usage the
equipment had deteriorated so that it became necessary to order
replacements. Contract was let locally for three new launches to be
fitted with 12-horsepower 4-cycle 2-cylinder engines, at a total out-
lay of about $4,500.
The cost and upkeep of these launches, while met out of the 5 per
cent allowance for operating expenses of the Receivership, are not
proper charges against that allowance, as the small craft is used
almost exclusively by the pilots.
The expense is borne as an accommodation to the Government and
in a spirit of cooperation.
ANNUAL INSPECTION
In compliance with paragraph 12 of the general regulations govern-
ing the Receivership, which provides for an annual inspection of the







REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


records and accounts of the Receivership by a representative of the
Bureau of Insular Affairs, Col. Orval P. Townshend, assistant to the
chief of the bureau, visited Santo Domingo in October, 1926, for the
purpose indicated.
PERSONNEL
It is with regret that record is made of the death of Thomas T.
Kelly, deputy general receiver of Dominican customs. Mr. Kelly
died October 9, 1926, while on leave of absence in the United States.
He had served in the capacity since appointment January, 1922. To
fill the vacancy by promotion, President Coolidge named Mr.
Norman L. Orme, date of commission February 3, 1927. Mr. Orme
has had many years of experience in the work of the Receivership.

PRODUCTION OF SUGAR

There is appended as a matter of interest, to be read in connection
with the statistics of export of the leading Dominican crop, a table
showing the production of sugar, by estates, crop of 1925-26. It
will be noted that these figures differ somewhat from those shown
elsewhere in this report, which deal with the actual exports in the
calendar year 1926. That year witnessed a larger tonnage ex-
ported than ever before, exceeding the best previous figure by
36,547 tons.
The outlook for 1927 is favorable for sugar-cane cultivation,
much new acreage being planted.
During the year the South Porto Rico Sugar Co. acquired the
Santa Fe estate, near Macoris, on which many modern methods for
increasing the production are being introduced.
Likewise the Monte Llano estate, near Puerto Plata, passed to
new owners, the Puerto Plata Sugar Co. and the Central Boca
Chica, Macoris Province, to American ownership.

SUMMARY OF COMMERCE

Appendix C, with its complete tables of commercial statistics,
exports and imports, gives a comprehensive review of Dominican
foreign trade of 1926, its volume and the extent to which each country
participated, either as buyer or supplier.
An index facilitates ready reference to the many group schedules,
as well as to the tables relating to carrying trade, tonnage movement,
etc.
IMPORTS

Reference to Schedules 2 and 6 will reveal that the declared value
of all imports for 1926 was $23,677,533, compared with $25,339,052
for 1925, a decrease of $1,661,519, or 6.56 per cent.
Dutiable merchandise was valued at $17,392,702. Imports free
of duty were valued at $6,284,831.
The United States furnished 60.72 per cent of the whole, valued at
$14,377,932, as against 65.12 per cent ($16,502,243) in 1925, or a
decrease of 4.40 per cent ($2,124,311).
Germany advanced over Porto Rico to second place, furnishing
7.82 per cent of the whole, valued at $1,852,397. British India also
advanced over Porto Rico and gained third place, with a percentage
of 5.96 ($1,411,624), and Porto Rico came next with 5.52 per cent
($1,306,694). England followed with merchandise valued at $1,-

Statistics covering all imports may be referred to. in Schedules 1
to 7 of Appendix C. Transactions of 1926 are shown compared with
those of 1925.
The net decrease in value of imports, $1,661,519, is largely ac-
counted for by lesser importations of cotton goods and manufactures

525, in the previous year, a decline of 194,587 kilos and a value of
$165,457. Machinery and apparatus showed a decline of $132,950,
from $955,023 to $822,073, while lumber accounted for a loss in
valuation of $106,310.
Jute bags, for the greater sugar crop, showed an increase in valu-
ation of $357,089, and crude fuel oil gained in value $195,052; wheat.

EXPORTS


Dominican products and manufactures valued at $24,895,871 were
exported in 1926, a net decline of $1,874,740 in value compared with
1925.

The decrease was due principally to curtailed production of tobacco
caused by lack of sufficient rainfall during the proper season, which
resulted in a short crop of less than half that of the previous year.

REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


Only 9,754 tons, valued at $1,192,026, were shipped abroad, compared
with 22,260 tons, valued at $2,765,484, in 1925, a net loss of 12,506
tons and $1,573,458 in value. The low price received for raw sugar
throughout the year accounted for a net loss of $747,423; the value
of molasses was $171,343 less, while coffee showed a gain of 1,641
tons and in valuation $595,485, and beans a gain of 819 tons and in
value $102,535.
Of the total value of exports American markets received $5,628,672,
represented chiefly by cacao, $3,759,858; coffee, $613,219; and
molasses, $43-2,182, as against a total of $5,608,223 in 1925. Relative
position of the United States in first place advanced from 20.95 per
cent to 22.61, while Canada advanced to second place with a per-
centage of 21.64, due to its purchases of sugar, valued at $5,378,618,
and Ireland took third place, with sugar shipments valued at $4,171,907.
The percentage of other leading countries, in the order named,
was: England, 10.78; Netherlands, 7.68; Porto Rico, 4.97; France,
4.30; Germany, 3.94; and Cuba, 2.72.
The six chief items of export, in their relative order of importance

LEADING EXPORTS, 1916-1926
A feature incorporated in the report for 1925 is continued with
addition of 1926 data, because of its utility as a compendium indi-
cating the volume and value of the country's leading exports, ex-
tending over a period of 11 years, from 1916, and the changes recorded
in that time. It is to be particularly noted that the combined values

CARRYING TRADE

By reference to Schedule 2 it will be seen that vessels of many
nationalities participated in the Dominican carrying trade. Imports
valued at $9,985,833, or 42.17 per cent of the whole, were brought in
American bottoms; Norwegian vessels brought a total of $7,138,478,
or 30.15 per cent; Dutch, $2,419,958, or 10.22 per cent. Next came-
German vessels with a total of $1,329,874. The remainder was
divided among vessels of other nationalities in proportions shown in
Schedule 2.
The principal carriers of exported products will be found detailed
in Schedule 9. In first place figured Norwegian vessels with mer--






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


chandise valued at $7,028,925, or 28.23 per cent of the whole export
trade. American vessels came next with $5,113,961, or 20.54 per
cent, followed by British bottoms carrying $4,028,578, or 16.18 per
cent, and Dutch next with $2,287,091, or 9.19 per cent. German
vessels occupied fifth place with $1,717,720, or 6.90 per cent. The
remainder was divided among Cuban, French, and other nationalities
in the proportion shown in Schedule 9.
The commerce movement expressed in tons of freight brought to
the country and volume of exports shipped to foreign ports was
greater than in 1925, when the aggregate was 816,067 tons. During
1926 there were 702,461 tons of exports, as shown by the manifests
of the carriers, and 222,443 tons of imports, a total of 924,904 tons.
The increase of 73,491 tons in exports is accounted for by greater
shipments of sugar, molasses, coffee, and sugar cane.
For particulars reference may be had to Schedules 15 and 15a. In
explanation of the greater tonnage movement than corresponds to
the actual tons of imports and exports for the year, it is stated that
many shipments arriving are of a transitory nature, intended for
reshipment and consumption elsewhere, do not enter in Dominican
trade, but do form a part of the carrying trade. The particulars of
such shipments do not figure in the established commercial statistics,
hence the difference noted.
Trade balance.-As the preceding paragraphs reveal, there was a
shrinkage in the aggregate value of Dominican foreign trade in
1926, in comparison with that of 1925. The total was $48,573,404
against $52,109,663 for 1925, or a decline of $3,536,259. But as the
loss in value affected both imports and exports, the margin between
. them continued relatively the same as in 1925. With exports of
1926 valued at $24,895,871 and imports $23,677,533, there resulted
a net trade balance of $1,218,338 on the side of Dominican exports
in excess of the outlay abroad, for all classes of imported merchan-
dise. A detailed list of all countries participating may be referred
to in Schedule 18 of the Summary of Commerce.
CONCLUSION
The economic condition of the country, the fiscal situation of the
Government, its program of public works, and the investment of
foreign capital may be accepted as an augury of a continuation of
the improvement which has been manifest in Santo Domingo during
recent years and lend encouragement to the belief that the country
is destined to further advance and develop along lines to insure it a
more important place commercially.
Respectfully submitted.
