THE AMERICAN-DOMINICAN CONVENTION, 1924

REPORT OF THE TWENTY-FIRST FISCALIPERIOD, DOMINICAN
CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP
WILLIAM E. PULLIAM, GENERAL RECEIVER
OFFICE OF THE GENERAL RECEIVER,
Santo Domingo, DominicaniRepublic, March 24, 1928.
SIR: A banner year with profitable crops for export, making for
the best economic 12 months under normal conditions in the history
of Santo Domingo, is reflected in the annual report of the Dominican
customs receivership, calendar year 1927, the twenty-first fiscal period,
respectfully submitted herewith, which embraces the usual tabulated
statements, narrative matter, and summary of commercial statistics
of the foreign-trade movement, in compliance with the prescribed
governing regulations. An intensified agricultural development,
encouraged by the Government, very naturally aided in the favorable
situation outlined.
COLLECTIONS
On the surface, gross collections of $5,896,429.12 in 1927 have been
surpassed in one previous year-1920-when the aggregate was
$6,273,741.24, but in reality the showing was greater during the latter
period, for in addition to customs revenue proper (duties on imports),
which totaled $5,796,881.05, there was in operation and applied as
an internal revenue measure, known locally as law 190, which levies
additional taxation on certain lines of imports. This is subsequent
to customs clearance, and from that source the Government derived
$1,409,354.38 in 1927, or a grand total of $7,206,235.43, in round
numbers nearly $1,000,000 in excess of the highest previous fiscal
contribution paid on imported merchandise within a period of 12
months-truly a remarkable per capital showing for a small country
with a population of approximately 900,000 inhabitants, the major
part of which is engaged in primitive agriculture.
Compared with 1926 ($4,714,405.25) there was an increase of
$1,182,023.87 in gross collections for 1927, the principal source of
which-imports-yielded $1,168,973.88 more in 1927 than during
the year immediately preceding. The gain was even greater
($1,196,881.05) when compared with the national budget estimate-
$4,600,000 voted in effect for the year commencing January 1, 1927-
and this development is the source of greatest satisfaction to the
administration of the receivership. Reference to accompanying
Appendix A with its supporting schedules will afford full particulars
of the sources of all collections and the relative importance of the
several ports of entry.

REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


DISBURSEMENTS
For the first time since the establishment of the receivership in
1905 the principal item of disbursements was paid the Government
as its share of the customs revenues. In all previous years the
largest segregation has been for service of the outstanding indebted-
ness, which in 1926 equaled 55.40 per cent of gross collections.
As its share of the revenues the Government received in 1927,
$4,553,627.06, of which $4,513,500 was paid direct and $40,127.06
was disbursed by the receivership for Government account by its
authority and as an accommodation in settlement of refunds, bills
payable, etc. The portion in 1927 was greater by $2,731,290.87
than that received in 1926 and exceeded by $2,097,843.31 that for
any previous year; the former largest payment was in 1917, when
to the Government was paid $2,455,783.75. The increased amount
is due to the recent cancellation of the loan of 1908, as well as that
of 1918 on which heavy interest and amortization payments were
required, and also by the requirement of present loan contracts
for interest payments only until 1930, together with the nominal
deduction of 10 per cent from excess collections over $4,000,000 for
amortization of the $5,000,000 loan. The greatly increased
amount will enable the Government to better care for its general
administration.
Service of the outstanding bonded indebtedness called for a total
of $1,038,953.46 and so applied, of which $213,953.58 corresponded
to 1926 receipts transmitted in January, 1927, to the Guaranty
Trust Co. of New York, fiscal agent, as final payment for liquidation
of the loan of 1908 ($20,000,000). The balance of the total was
applied as follows: $368,499.96 to the loan of 1922 ($6,700,000),
$181,500 to that of 1926 ($3,300,000), and $274,999.92 to the
$5,000,000 loan contracted late in 1926.
The three last-mentioned amounts were transmitted in monthly
installments to Lee, Higginson &' Co., New York, fiscal agent for
the loan mentioned, and were for interest account only.
Total cost of operation for the entire service was $232,440.02,
which included all salaries, allowances and purchase of supplies,
maintenance and equipment of the several customhouses, as well as
the central office.
Particulars relating to disbursements may be found in Appendix
A hereof and its supporting schedules.
OPERATING EXPENSE
The total cost of operation for the year was maintained at a figure
well within the convention allowance of 5 per cent and under the
budget -system approved at the beginning of the year, notwith-
standing the extraordinary disbursement of $12,828.32 for additional
compensation which is discussed under a separate heading.






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


The convention allowance (5 per cent of gross receipts) made
available the sum of $294,821.45. The amount approved by the
Chief of the Bureau of Insular Affairs in accordance with, budget
estimate of expenditures for 1927 was $235,150, while the actual
expenses for operation of the receivership throughout the year totaled
$232,440.02. There resulted a saving of $62,381.43, which accrued
and was paid to the Government under the provisions of the govern-
ing regulations.
Compared with the previous year there was an increase in ex-
penditures of $17,662.42, the major item of which, $12,828.32, repre-
sented the additional compensation awarded the personnel and the
remainder, $4,834.10, was for new employees and on account of
readjustments of salaries. The percentage cost of operation for
the year was 3.94 per cent in comparison with 4.56 per cent for
1926. Details are available in schedules 3 and 5 of Appendix A.
ADDITIONAL COMPENSATION
With greatly increased collections made possible by an enlarged
volume of importations for the dispatch of which the personnel
rendered a very satisfactory service, it was considered in order and
desirable that some substantial recognition of the effort be made.
The step was further warranted by the upward tendency in the cost
of living and the inability to fix salaries at a.figure to keep pace with
that economic development.
Authority was requested of the Bureau of Insular Affairs and
granted for the payment to all subordinate employees of the receiver-
ship having one year or more satisfactory service to their credit an
amount equal to their individual monthly salaries.
There is ample reason to believe that the effect will prove salutary
and that the extra compensation will stimulate increased effort and
greater efficiency on the part of the personnel in the performance
of the routine to the benefit of the revenue, and by this token the
outlay of $12,828.32 is deemed to be fully justified.
RECAPITULATION
As upon former occasions, the recapitulation of all financial
transactions of the receivership since its commencement, Apri11,
1905, to December 31, 1927, is summarized in Appendix B of this
annual report. During the 23 years of its existence the receivership
has handled and accounted for an aggregate of $91,008,606.12 at a
cbst far within the stipulated convention allowance of 5 per cent.

BONDED INDEBTEDNESS

At the close of 1927 the total of outstanding bonded indebtedness
of the Republic remained as it was on December 31, 1926-$15,000,000,
customs bonds 5 's distributed as follows:
Loan of 1922 --------------------------------- $6, 700, 000
Loan of 1926 ---------------------------------------- 3, 300, 000
Loan of 1926 ---------------------------- --------- 5,000,000
15, 000, 000
The following table shows the amounts disbursed by the receiver-
ship for the service of these loans:

LOAN OF 1922-$6,700,000
Total interest payments from 1922 to December 31, 1926.----- $1, 781, 083. 14

Total interest payments-------------------- 2, 149, 583. 10

LOAN OF 1926-$3,300,000 MERGED WITH LOAN OF 1924-$2,500,000
Total interest payments from 1924 to December 31, 1926-------- $423, 500. 00
During year 1927 at 52 per cent----------------------------- 181, 500. 00
Total interest payments ---------.------------------- 605, 000. 00
NoTE.-Amortization payments on this loan begin in 1930.
LOAN OF 1926-$5,000,000
Total interest payments during year 1927 at 5Y2 per cent-------- $274, 999. 92
NOTE.-This loan was negotiated late in December, 1926. No payment for its
account was made in that year.
The provision for amortization of the loan of $5,000,000 (1926)
requires that beginning August 1, 1930, and monthly thereafter-
there be set aside "in 12 equal installments" sufficient funds to retire
at least one-tenth of the bonds "and that an equal amount be retired
annually until the entire issue is liquidated." In addition, by virtue
of the terms of the convention under which the bond issue is author-
ized, 10 per cent of customs revenues collected in excess of $4,000,000
in any year likewise accrues to the sinking fund. Pursuant to this
provision there was segregated from the excess of customs revenues
the sum of $179,688.10 to be so applied, but as bonds of this issue
are not callable until October 31, 1931, this amount while available
will be held as a reserve fund until that date. The segregation
$179,688.10 was not transferred to the fiscal agent, New York, until
January, 1928; therefore does not appear as a disbursement in this
report.

SERVICE OF LOANS

At the close of 1927 the receivership had been functioning in
Santo Domingo for a period of practically 23 years, established by
virtue of the "modus vivendi" decree of March 31, 1905, confirmed
by the convention of 1907, and it in turn superseded by the present
convention of 1924. It is considered of interest in connection with
actual status of the bonded indebtedness of the Dominican Republic
now being served by the receivership to refer to a rdsum6 of trans-
actions which relate to all bond issues within the period mentioned.
Segregations from the customs revenue amounting to $4,086,651.92,
1905-1907 (modus vivendi), were applied to the cancellation of
claims, and for the service of the several bond issues under the two
conventions a total of $41,317,336.15 has been applied to credit
interest charges and sinking funds accounts, making a grand total
of $45,403,988.07. The recapitulated items which form the total are
to be found in Appendix B under "Expenditures and disbursements,"
on page 25.
FRONTIER SERVICE
Contrasted with the increased customs collections at the entry
ports on the coast, the land offices at the established crossing points
on the international boundary registered a decline. As a preventive
agency with which the national police cooperates in the suppression
of contraband, the service was maintained at its usual standard, but
the receipts do not cover cost of operation and never have.
An analysis of the actual situation reveals that principal contrib-
uting factor was the application of the revised Haitian tariff of August
9, 1926, in which for many lines of staple imports entering into daily
consumption the Haitian customs rates are higher than the Domin-
ican, and that, of course, discourages their importation with the
prospect of a second payment of duties.
At Comendador, the frontier station where the shorter highway
between the two capitals crosses, the Government constructed a very
creditable reinforced building of two stories for the joint occupancy
of the national police and the customs and internal revenue depart-
ments. The building is of arch form, so that the highway passes
.through it, a practical arrangement for the service of the govern-
mental routine. An identical edifice is under construction at
Dajabon, on the northeastern boundary, where the longer highway,
which bisects the Dominican Republic, passes into Haitian territory.






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVEIRSHIP


COLUMBUS BEACON
A formal announcement at Washington on January 2, 1928,, was
made by Secretary of State Kellogg, acting in his capacity as chair-
man of the governing .board of the Pan American Union, that
"definite steps have just been taken toward the consummation of
the plan to honor the memory of Christopher Columbus by the
erection of a monumental lighthouse at the city of Santo Domingo,
capital of the Dominican Republic." By this important develop-
ment it may be stated that the movement inaugurated a number of
years ago has been given the necessary impetus to insure its further
progress and the realization of the first and only collective Pan
American memorial in enduring form to recognize and symbolize
the universal debt of gratitude due by the peoples of the Americas to
the immortal Genoese, the original blazer of the trail across the At-
lantic, whose transcendental labor opened a new world for European
settlement.
Perhaps no international project conceived in a spirit of altruism
ever has received such an array of endorsement and approval, both
official and by press leaders of many countries, which fact should
augur well for its consummation.
Formally adopted by a resolution of the Fifth Pan American Con-
ference at Santiago de Chile, April, 1923, which "recommended it to
the Governments of the American Republics" and, further, "which
shall be built with the cooperation of the governments and peoples of
America and with the further cooperation of the other peoples of the
earth," a unanimous vote of the Pan American conferencee just closed
at-Habana was recorded in its support. The governing board of the
Pan American Union at Washington and other prominent bodies of
international affiliations have taken appropriate action of adhesion.
In addition to an appropriation of $300,000 voted in 1926 by the
Dominican Congress as the initial contribution of the Dominican
Government toward the project, a concurrent resolution adopted
January, 1927, by the Congress of the United States approved the
international project "to erect a memorial lighthouse at Santo
Domingo, Dominican Republic, to Christopher Columbus, and that
the several States participating in that conference (Santiago de Chile)
-be notified through the usual diplomatic channels of the desire of the
people of the United States to participate in this movement to honor
the memory of the great navigator and discoverer."
The plan in general terms contemplates that a suitable tomb is to
be built in which will be deposited for safe and reverent keeping for
all time the remains of Columbus. Superimposed over the tomb is
to rise in majestic proportions a beacon of enormous power to guide
by night the navigators of the Caribbean as well as the birdmen of
the air traveling the uncharted element of the West Indies. On the

material side the funds necessary are to be supplied by the 21 gov-
ernments of the Pan American Union and, in addition, by popular
subscriptions of widest possible range, so that all so disposed may
take part in making possible a fitting memorial conceived in a spirit
of altruism and Pan-Americanism which combines "sentiment with
utility in a degree seldom found," as so well expressed in one of the
leading editorial indorsements.
IMPROVED TRANSPORTATION FA.CILITI ES
By virtue of Law 614, promulgated March 16, 1927, the provisions
of a contract entered into by the New York & Porto Rico Steamship
Co. and the Government were announced, whereby there was estab-
lished a weekly passenger, freight, and mail service between New
York and Santo Domingo, via San Juan, P. R., by the modern fast
steamers Coamo and San Lorenzo, the first named arriving to inau-
gurate the service on June 14, 1927. This splendid improvement
was made possible by the liberal support of the Government, which
included a subsidy for carrying mails, waiving of port dues, wharf
charges, and other fees for vessels engaged in this service.
From its inception the line has proved a success. It affords facili-
ties heretofore lacking of rapid and comfortable passenger transpor-
tation to and from New York, with San Juan as a port of call, and
has attracted not a few tourists to the Republic. Improved mail
service naturally benefits commercial transactions and aids in their
expansion. Owing to the size and draft of these steamers, they can
not enter the Ozama River to dock, but must handle their passengers
and freight in the outer harbor, but even with this handicap, weather
conditions have not seriously interfered with their prompt and safe
dispatch.
PORT DUES AND PILOTAGE
By the enactment of Law 680, which became effective January 1,
1928, the Government amended article 34 of the customs administra-
tive law and revised, the method of calculating and collecting dues for
pilotage, abolished the fees heretofore collected from incoming vessels
for the health officer inspection and interpreters at all ports, also the
municipal light tax (5 cents per registered ton) which was collected
only at the port of Santo Domingo.
The amended law provides for collection of pilotage of 5 cents each
ton of cargo actually laden or discharged at the several ports, with a
minimum charge of $5, which is considered a more satisfactory and
equitable basis. Compensation of the pilots was placed on a fixed
salary schedule paid direct by the Government under its annual
budget.
One of the practical effects of the new legislation is to lessen
considerably the charges against vessels carrying small cargoes and
particularly for those calling at the principal port of Santo Domingo.

NATIONAL EXPOSITION
On a scale never attempted before and realized in a creditable
manner, the Government inaugurated on May 5, 1927, at Santiago,
center of the agricultural Cibao region, a national exposition dedicated
to labor and progress, which has characterized the country in recent
years. Continuing throughout the month, the exposition comprising
some 50 buildings, well filled with the products and manufactures
of the several Provinces, as well as interesting corresponding exhibits
made by Cuba and Haiti and Porto Rico, each housed in its own
building, afforded a splendid opportunity for the people of all sections
to visit and receive first-hand knowledge and impressions of the
progress in evidence in Santo Domingo, particularly agriculture
represented by diversified crops, the basis of the present as well as
future wealth of the country.
CEREMONIAL VISITS
On February 14, 1927, for a stay of three days the U. S. S. Seattle,
flagship of the American fleet, Admiral Charles F. Hughes, arrived
at the port of Santo Domingo for an official call on the President and
Government of the Dominican Republic. An elaborate program of
entertainment was prepared for the visitors, the Government afford-
ing every facility for them to see the country to best advantage, so
that they might note the progress and improvements realized during
the immediate recent years.
PRESIDENT BORN6 OF HAITI
In return of the official visit in July by Gen. Horacio Vasquez,
President of the Dominican Republic, to Port au Prince, the chief
executive of the neighboring republic arrived at Santo Domingo
December 17, 1927, and remained until the 20th, during which time
he was the recipient of much attention by the Government incident
to the carrying out of a very elaborate program of entertainment in
his honor. The exchange of these visits was the first in the history
of the two countries, now drawn closer together by the modern high-
way system of good roads which minimize distances and make avail-
able comfortable means of transportation. These visits also symbolize
the desire of both peoples, speaking through their respective execu-
tives, to meet and solve the international questions that prevail,
principal among them being the age-old boundary dispute dating
back to a treaty between France and Spain toward the close of the
eighteenth century, which attempted to divide the island between
those powers before the birth of the two small nations now occupying
the identical territory.







REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


EXCHANGE OF PROPERTY
In continuation of the subject matter "Property transfer" made
of record in the Receivership report of 1925, it may be'stated h'at the
plan was extended whereby the Government has arranged to take
over the two remaining houses of the original Receivership holding.
Pursuant to an act of Congress, Law 464, promulgated May 27, 1926,
there was made available the sum of $39,000, representing an un-
expended portion of the 5 per cent Receivership operating expense
allowance, delivered to the government for the construction of two
houses to be offered in exchange. The necessary steps for a ratifi-
cation of the exchange were conducted through diplomatic channels
with the Department of State, Washington, which approved the
plan. Early in the year the Government turned over for occupancy
by the Receivership a residence it had acquired by purchase and sub-
sequently completed plans for another house now under construction
intended as the official residence of the general receiver. When the
arrangement is finally consummated, the Government will then be in
possession of all the buildings, principal among which is the presi-
dential mansion, a photograph of which appears in this report,
formerly constituting the Receivership compound in Gascue, principal
suburb of the capital.

EXPORTS

The total value of Dominican exports for the year was $31,178,769,
as against $24,895,871 for 1926, a net gain of $6,282,898, or 25 per
cent. This very favorable showing is accounted for by the greatly
augmented cacao and tobacco crops with good prices and the
better price received for sugar. The aggregate gain in value of
these three crops over 1926 was $7,004,594, distributed thus:
$3,645,362 for cacao, $1,390,460 for tobacco, and $1,968,772 for
sugar.
On the side of decreases in value of products exported in 1927 as
compared with 1926 were the following items: Corn, $171,969;
coffee, $140,919; beans, $82,586; logwood, $55,421; railway ties,
$51,859; cattle, $48,527; molasses, $31,742; honey, $24,020; goat-
skins, $13,563; and sugar cane, $13,315.

REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


Sugar, raw.-Of this staple product, which since 1914 has formed
more than 50 per cent of the total value of all exports, there were
shipped 295,896 tons, valued at $16,668,385, compared with 337,653
tons ($14,699,613) during the preceding year, or a loss in tonnage of
41,757, with a gain in value of $1,968,772. For 1927 the value of
this crop represented 53 per cent of all exports.
The principal purchasers, in the order named, were: Ireland,
which received 94,126 tons, valued at $5,198,908; Canada, 60,112
tons ($3,379,034); England, 58,383 tons ($3,393,293); the Nether-
lands, 25,575 tons ($1,435,014); Scotland, 16,715 tons ($922,943);
France, 15,917 tons ($835,305) Italy, 15,585 tons ($958,112); andito
other countries 9,483 tons, valued at $545,776. ..
Cacao.-The quantity of the 1927 crop (26,513 tons) of cacao has
been equaled but once before, in 1921, when 26,574 tons were ex-
ported. The value received for that shipped in 1927, $7,476,794;
was likewise surpassed but once, in 1919, when $8,011,384 was paid
for that year's crop.
Compared with the exports of cacao in the preceding year, that for
1927 represented a gain in tonnage of 6,429 and in value $3,645,362,
or 95 per cent in excess of the price received in 1926. In 1927 the
value of this staple represented 24 per cent of all Dominican exports.;
Of the entire quantity exported the United States was the consumer
of 26,005 tons, valued at $7,322,607, and Mexico 257 tons, valued at
$79,885, the small remainder going to other countries.
Leaf tobacco.-Of all Dominican products tobacco exports of 1927
showed the greatest individual gain over the preceding year. Of
this commodity 20,298 tons, valued at $2,582,486, were exported, as
compared with 9,754 tons, with a valuation of $1,192,026, for the
previous year, an increase of 10,544 tons and $1,390,460 in value, or
117 per cent, over the amount received for the crop of 1926.
Germany again was the principal purchaser, taking 10,171 tons,
valued at $1,299,944, slightly over half the entire crop. To the
Netherlands were shipped 5,146 tons, with a valuation of $666,477.
France received 2,390 tons ($299,671); Belgium, 1,131 tons ($123,918);
and the balance, or 1,460 tons, went to other countries.
Cofee.-Exports of coffee in 1927, 4,094 tons, valued at $1,749,522,
represented when compared with the previous year a decrease of
213 tons and in valuation $140,919. The figures for 1926 were
4,307 tons, valued at $1,890,441. This slight decline has no signifi-
cance, however, as in no year prior to 1925 did the tonnage of the
coffee crop reach 2,500 tons.
For the total exports of coffee Cuba was the chief customer, taking
1,367 tons, valued at $624,562. Other principal buyers were Italy,
848 tons ($345,969); United States, 704 tons ($321,837); and France,
667 tons ($252,653).

imports and exports combined, was 883,623, as against 924,904 in
1926, and all of the decrease of 41,281 tons was in exports. Of the
total, 631,831 tons were exports, compared with 702,461 tons in 1926,
Sa decrease in this item of 70,630 tons. Imports aggregated 251,792
tons, as against 222,443 in 1926. The difference of 29,349 tons was in
a large measure shipments of water and sewer pipe and other materials
imported for the aqueduct, sewerage system, and other public im-
provements in course of construction at the capital.
For complete details of the tonnage movement reference is invited
to schedules 15 and 15a of Appendix C.
Trade balance.-The total value of Dominican foreign.trade for 1927
was $58,962,783. Compared with $48,573,404 for the previous year,
there was a gain of $10,389,379. The balance of trade in favor of the
Republic advanced to $3,394,755 from $1,218,338 in 1926, as detailed
in schedule 19 of Appendix C. All countries participating in this
trade are listed in schedule 18.
CONCLUSION
A review of the transactions of the year, commercial and fiscal,
the one aiding the other, brings into relief the country's advancement
and the attention attracted to it from the outside. More intensive
and sustained agricultural activities resulted in a greater surplus of
crops for export at favorable prices, thus increasing the purchasing
power of the people. The extension and maintenance of the modern
highway system has facilitated transportation both to and from
markets and shipping points besides otherwise aiding in the develop-
ment of the country's resources. The progressive program of public
improvements for distinct sections of the Republic insures the dis-
tribution of considerable sums throughout the country which find
their way back into the channels of trade to add to the general
prosperity now so clearly in evidence.
Respectfully submitted.
