THE AMERICAN-DOMINICAN CONVENTION, 1924


REPORT OF THE TWENTY-SECOND FISCAL PERIOD
DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP
WILLIAM E. PULLIAM, GENERAL RECEIVER

OFFICE OF THE GENERAL RECEIVER,
Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, March 20, 1929.
SIR: In accordance with the established practice as provided by the
general regulations governing the administration of the Dominican
Customs Receivership, there has been prepared and is respectfully
submitted herewith the report of transactions of that service for the
calendar year 1928, which marks the close of the twenty-second fiscal
period. Complete financial tables, together with a summary of
commerce, form a part of the report.

COLLECTIONS

Gross collections for 1928 reached a total of $5,290,308.31, the
fourth largest in amount for a year since the establishment of the
receivership. Compared with the year preceding there was a decrease
of $606,120.81. Nevertheless the showing is considered quite satis-
factory in view of conditions which prevailed, mainly the result of
damage sustained by a combination of drought and flood at different
seasons in many sections of the country, which naturally resulted in
damage to crops. As made of record on other occasions, the economic
condition in Santo Domingo, an agricultural country, bears a close
relation to the success or failure of crops it has for the foreign markets.
Of the aggregate, import duties collected amounted to $5,191,481.22,
which though less by $605,399.83 than from the same source in
1927, yet was sufficient to meet all the prescribed requirements for the
service of the loans, and in addition made available $119,148.12 to
be applied as extra payment for account of sinking fund in any year
where the revenue collections on imports exceed $4,000,000.
Schedules under Appendix A enumerate the sources of all collec-
tions as well as the comparative importance of the several entry ports.
DISBURSEMENTS

The Government received as its portion of customs collections
$3,776,647.49, of which sum $3,711,000 was the total of the direct
monthly payments and the remainder $65,647.49 was for various







REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


items settled for account of the Government as an accommodation.
This follows a plan in vogue for many years as part of the cooperation
which the receivership attempts at all times to render the Govern-
ment in connection with its fiscal routine. The total reverting to the
Government in 1928 was of course less than that for the year preceding,
when much larger customs collections were recorded. An additional
disbursement was incurred for the service of the $5,000,000 loan of
1926, second series, first interest payment made April, 1928.
Service of the outstanding bonded indebtedness call for pay-
ments totaling $1,210,938.01, of which $179,688.10 was credited to
the sinking fund of the first and second series, loan of 1926, for $5,000,-
000 each. The remainder was for interest, distributed as follows:
$368,499.96 to loan of 1922 ($6,700,000), $181,500 to that of 1926
($3,300,000), $274,999.92 to 1926, first series ($5,000,000), and $206,-
250.03 to 1926, second series. Interest charges were transferred
monthly to the fiscal agent, Lee, Higginson & Co., of New York.
The next major item of importance disbursed during the year was
for the expense of administration of the receivership, which aggre-
gated $253,488.22.
Details of disbursements will be found in Appendix A and its
accompanying schedules.
OPERATING EXPENSE
Cost of operation for the year was less than the 5 per cent allowed
by the convention and well within the annual budget even though
the outlays embraced a considerable amount for expenses of an extra-
ordinary nature. Additional compensation allowed employees at end
of the year raised the total correspondingly.
On the basis of allowance of 5 per cent of gross collections there
was available for operation expense $264,515.41. There was expended
a total of $253,488.22 which included salaries, allowances, purchase
of supplies and equipment of entire service, and property improve-
ments. The resulting saving of $11,027.19 was turned over to the
Government in accordance with existing regulations.
The annual budget for 1928, approved by the Chief of the Bureau
of Insular Affairs at the beginning of the year, authorized $240,000
and $227,940.01 was disbursed, or a saving of $12,059.99. Expenses
for the same purposes during 1927 amounted to $232,440.02, a dif-
ference of $4,500.01 in favor of 1928.
It is desired to make specific reference in this report to certain
disbursements for expense account which were authorized subsequent
to the budget for the year. On proper authority of the Government
$10,973.61 was paid by the receivership for improvements, alterations,
etc., to the building and grounds of the Government property provided
for the occupancy of the general receiver, discussed under a separate
heading. To meet the additional compensation awarded employees







REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


at the close of the year $13,206.60 was required. The history of the
transaction and motive for its adoption as a part of the routine was
outlined in the report for 1927.
The two items mentioned represented an outlay of $24,180.21,
which as before stated was within the authorized allowance.
Cost of operation was 4.79 per cent. For details schedules 3 and
5 of Appendix A supply the particulars.
RECAPITULATION

The termination of 1928 concluded 24 years (1905-1928) of service
rendered by the receivership to the Dominican Government, during
which time there has been collected and disbursed an aggregate of
$96,294,733.91. All obligations have been met and the several con-
vention requirements faithfully complied with. Consolidated finan-
cial particulars for the entire period are to be found in the recapitu-
lation, Appendix B. -
LOAN OF $5,000,000 AT 5Y PER CENT
On January 16, 1928, the Government awarded to Lee, Higginson
& Co., international bankers, New York, a bond issue of $5,000,000
par value, customs administration gold bonds, interest rate 5 2 per
cent, sale price 97.29. This issue known as the second series of the
$10,000,000 due in 1940 authorized by Law No. 516, Congress, Octo-
ber, 1926, brings the total bonded indebtedness outstanding at the
close of December, 1928, to $20,000,000, subject to the small amounts
paid on account of sinking fund, as the commencement of amortiza-
tion-details shown under the heading "Statement of National In-
debtedness" of this report. An earlier reference to the first stage of
the transaction may be found on page 7 of the receivership report
for 1926. It is considered that the offered and accepted price was
attractive for the Government, and corresponded most favorably
with the quotations for other leading American securities listed at
present on the bond markets.
Proceeds of this loan as provided in the law authorizing the entire
issue were intended for the completion and furtherance of certain
public improvements now well under way by the department of
public works.
The first interest payment made by the receivership for the service
of this new loan was $22,916.67, paid in the month of April, a total
of 9 monthly payments in the year, or an aggregate of $206,250.03,
also clearly set forth in the corresponding tabulated statement. The
loan contract and agreement of fiscal agency between the Dominican
Republic and Lee, Higginson & Co., was executed at Washington,
January 26, 1928, described as the 14-year 5Y2 per cent customs
administration sinking fund gold bond issue of 1926, second series.

LAW 190 AND ITS APPLICATION

Collections under law 190 by the department of internal revenue
in the nine Provinces which correspond to maritime ports of entry
aggregated $1,424,500.80 for 1928. This compared very favorably
with receipts from the same source in 1927. Particulars are inserted
herewith as a matter of convenience because this fiscal income bears a
close relation to customs revenue proper. It was discussed in the
introductory part of receivership report for 1927. Total resulting
from the well known and discussed law 190 added to the aggregate of
customs returns makes a very creditable showing for a country the
size of Santo Domingo, which depends almost exclusively upon indi-
rect taxation to meet administrative needs.
The law is applied at the several customhouses, where the personnel
has been enjoined to cooperate with the employees of the internal
revenue department. The assistance represents a further service
,which the receivership is always willing to render to the Government.
The character of this aid plays a large part in the avoidance of errors
which might follow from improper classification, faulty ascertainment
of the specific weights and quantities on many lines of merchandise
under the tariff. The actual work of verification and examination is
made by customs employees, after which the documents are at hand
for the application of the added tax. The cooperative work facili-
tates the prompt dispatch of imported merchandise as it aids the

REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


VISIT OF GENERAL M INTYRE-ANNUAL INSPECTION

Following the regularly established practice in accordance with
the regulations governing the receivership, Maj. Gen. Frank McIn-
tyre visited Santo Domingo in July to conduct the prescribed inspec-
tion and examination of the affairs, routine, and accountability of
this service. None could be better qualified for the task in view of
his close association with the receivership from its early inception,
first as assistant to and then as Chief of the Bureau of Insular Affairs.
His visit was timely and appropriate as it was to be the last for him
owing to his imminent retirement from the active list of the United
States Army, which followed as a statutory requirement on January 5,
1929. It is a duty as well as a pleasure to make of permanent record
the unfailing, intelligent and consistent helpfulness and capable
cooperation which have at all times characterized the services
rendered by General McIntyre to the Dominican customs receiver-
ship, and the marked interest displayed by him in its success, during
the many years since its inauguration, April, 1905.

PROPERTY TRANSFER
As the concluding chapter of this important transfer of real estate
holdings discussed in previous annual reports (1925 and 1927) the
actual occupancy of the premises constructed by the Government
for the official residence of the general receiver, was effected on July 5,
1928. As prearranged, that official relinquished to the Government
the residence and property which had been acquired by the receiver-
ship for similar use, and it is now occupied as the residence of the
Secretary of Finance and Commerce. The arrangement completed
has been mutually satisfactory in every way. To repeat, quoting
from the receivership report of 1925: "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 Domini-
can Government."

PAN AMERICAN COLUMBUS MEMORIAL
The developments in connection with the carrying out of this
laudable project were so satisfactory and encouraging during 1928,
it is in order to amplify the reference under heading "Columbus
Beacon" in the narrative section of the receivership annual report
for 1927. Enough progress has been made of tangible record to
discount the realization of this enterprise of altruism, which doubt-
less will transcend the most sanguine expectations of those who have
labored for its success.







REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


What the official participation of the United States, but one of the
21 members pledged of the Pan American Union, is to be, may best
be indicated by the message of President Coolidge commending to
the favorable consideration of the Congress the recommendation of
the Secretary of State.
[House of Representatives, Seventieth Congress, Second Session, Document No. 456]
To the Congress of the United States:
I transmit a report from the Secretary of State on the subject of the Christopher
Columbus Memorial Lighthouse to be erected by the Governments and peoples
of the Americas on the coast of the Dominican Republic at Santo Domingo, and
commend to the favorable consideration of the Congress the recommendation
of the Secretary of State, as contained in the report that legislation be enacted
authorizing the appropriation of the sum of $871,655 as the share of the United
States in this project.
CALVIN COOLIDGE.
THE WHITE HOUSE, December 6, 1928.
With gratifying prospects (at this writing) of the approval of Con-
gress in this material and most liberal manner, the United States
assumes, as it should, the lead in the undertaking and points the way
to the nations of the world, and also to the popular appeal to follow.
Aside from the action of the United States, it is understood that
Cuba intends to recommend an appropriation of $100,000 and the
Dominican Republic already by law has obligated itself for the sum
of $300,000. Both of these amounts are greatly in excess of the two
countries' corresponding quotas. All of which means, of course,
world wide and most favorable propaganda for Santo Domingo,
which was (1500) the only entrep6t of the New World recognized by
the Spanish crown, and now after the lapse of centuries is coming
again into its own. As a mark of respect and an added homage to
the original trail blazer across the Atlantic, it was but natural and
most fitting that the proposed Columbus memorial should receive the
hearty endorsement of the modern young Columbus of the air, Colonel
Lindbergh, on the occasion of his aerial visit to Santo Domingo.
When apprised of the project, its aims, purpose, and utility, he made
of record his reaction in the following language:
I was told that it would be a light for airplanes as well as ships. It will be on a
site a mile square for use as an airfield, which naturally seems to me a fine memorial
to Columbus, who showed the world new routes of travel. Airplane travel,
which I believe will aid to a large extent in the development of these islands
(West Indies) certainly will be helped by such a memorial. (February 5, 1928.)
It is of more than passing interest to record in this matter that the
capital of Santo Domingo occupies almost the central geographical
position in and among the four islands of the Greater Antilles (Cuba,
Jamaica, Haiti-Santo Domingo, and Porto Rico) and likewise lies
practically midway in the Caribbean between the mainland of the
United States and the northern coast line of South America.






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


As a recent metropolitan editorial comment so aptly tells it:
The geography of the Caribbean-like that of a great deal of South America-
seems to have been designed by Providence with the airplane expressly in view.
Those wide seas, impenetrable jungles, and towering mountain ranges, which
have proved so forbidding to railroads, highways, and other means of rapid
communication, are, of course, an invitation to air transport companies.

LINDBERGH AND PAN AMERICAN AIRWAYS

Santo Domingo was favored to be included among the Central
American and Caribbean circle capitals in the itinerary of the memor-
able good will flight of Colonel Lindbergh the early part of the year.
He landed at Santo Domingo City on February 4, remaining two
entire days, and became very much impressed with the possibilities
of the port, particularly from the viewpoint of commercial aviation
for which his flight proved such a tremendous impetus. The develop-
ment, for which he is so largely responsible, was so rapid that in less
than one year the Pan American Airways (Inc.) was in operation,
linking Miami, Fla., with the capitals of the Greater Antilles. The
practical effect of this most modern means of air communication for
both mail and passengers will be far-reaching. Already it has cut in
half the time required' for passage between the United States and
Santo Domingo, thus aiding in promoting and intensifying trade
relations and development of commerce between the two countries.
Inauguration of the service was on January 10, 1929, with the
arrival of the first plane from Miami, Fla., via Havana, Camaguey,
and Santiago, Cuba, and Port au Prince, Haiti, when Gen. Horacio
Vasquez, president of the Republic, and members of his immediate
official family took part in the formal ceremony of welcome.

TOURIST TRAVEL

Santo Domingo no longer lies off the beaten track of the popular
West Indies tourist travel, which heretofore has overlooked and failed
to take advantage of the many places of historic interest the country,
especially the capital, has to offer. With a background of the Spanish
conquistadores in America as a setting, rich in the romance of bygone
centuries, and basking in the pardonable pride of the glory surrounding
"La Cuna (cradle) de America," the capital city, Santo Domingo,
was founded August 4, 1496, by Bartholomew Columbus, brother of
Christopher Columbus. With many relics of the first New World
Spanish architecture to lure, it attracted prominent steamship lines
catering to this remunerative travel, which commenced making Santo
Domingo a port of call. Commencing in February and March and
during the year many hundreds of these tourists came, passengers on
vessels of English, German, and American registry. It is to be






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


assumed from common report that the reaction of these happy trav-
elers to what they saw was one of pleasure and general satisfaction,
and compared in every way favorably with what other points of interest
of the same itinerary had to offer.

SUGAR RESTRICTION

The Dominican Government, mainly in a spirit of cooperation with
Cuba as the outcome of a visit made to Santo Domingo by Colonel
Tarafa, well-known Cuban publicist and sugar magnate, and in con-
cert with some of the sugar-producing countries, enacted restrictive
legislation with the expectation the better to cope with world condi-
tion of overproduction. This took the form of a law, No. 815,
promulgated in Official Gazette No. 3916, November 23, 1927,
whereby a tax was put on future arrivals of sugar-making machinery
and apparatus at the prohibitive rate of 150 per cent ad valorem.
Due consideration was had for those vested sugar interests then
operating in the country in that the law plainly exempted from the
new tax sugar-making machinery and parts thereof intended as
replacements.
When it is understood that prior to the passage of that law sugar-
making machinery was on the free entry list, a wise provision to en-
courage and foster the industry, the extent of the drastic measure
is better appreciated. However, to date there has been no detrimental
consequence; what with abnormally low prices obtaining for the
product throughout the world, the producers would not have been
interested in expansion.
Undoubtedly the law of supply and demand will solve and regulate
the burdensome and serious problem at present confronting Dominican
sugar.
CORN
One of the advantages peculiar to the Dominican Republic in the
development and extension for export lies in the fact that there is
large variety subject to cultivation and in this respect the contrast is
marked, compared with similar conditions prevailing in either Porto
Rico or Cuba.
Until recent years no attractive market on the outside had been
found for Dominican corn, although the home demand was'more than
supplied, the surplus practically going to waste. Now, happily, that
condition has changed, for the commercial statistics commencing 1920
reveal that only 697 metric tons of corn, with the declared valuation'
of $52,979, were exported. Since the commencement of this new
business, in the comparative short space of 8 years, the same export
(1928) registered 6,915 tons, valued at $320,127, the principal portion
of which entered into consumption in Porto Rico, which received







10 REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP

5,489 tons, valued at $258,887. The increase in volume of this one
export from 1920 to 1928 was 906 per cent.
During very recent months the possibility of Dominican corn as a
dependable export for which the demand promises to be enormous,
has attracted attention of foreign interests enjoying the best of com-
mercial ratings. The crop is purely native and the benefits to be
derived can be dedicated to a further increased cultivation. Tillable
lands are abundant and the small farmer with the aid of members of
his family and primitive implements can raise corn without the
necessity of the inversion of any appreciable capital.
Two dependable crops a year are grown. The first planted in the
spring with the harvest in the months of June and July; the second,
which is more important, runs from August to September to the end
of the year. The demand for this crop on a large scale is for ship-
ment to Europe as, of course, it can not pay the customs tariff and
compete in American markets. At the present time the United
States and Argentina are the principal producers for the world
demand, but these countries must be satisfied with one annual crop,
planted in the spring, gathered in the fall.
Analysis has shown the presence in Dominican corn of the necessary
oil content, and the absence of excessive moisture, a combination
which should guarantee and fortify its acceptance in European
markets.
Santo Domingo has a vast extent of arable land suitable for corn
and if only a tithe of ii be so utilized, the returns will prove surpris-
ing, thus insuring to the country and its inhabitants an entirely new
source of income which will increase with the years and augment
the purchasing power of the people, to buy in foreign markets a
much larger volume of imports than now enters Dominican ports.

DOMINICAN CATTLE, A TRADE POSSIBILITY
Reference to adequate use of the vast extent of Dominican terri-
tory suitable for cattle raising, has at different times been made in
official correspondence of the receivership. Permanent record of it
is in the annual report for 1921. In connection with the general re-
awakening of the country now plainly in evidence, the possibility of
cattle raising, manufacture of cheese and butter, not to mention
hides and meat products for export, has been given serious considera-
tion during recent months, by outside interests making a survey of
this section for possible future trade expanse.
Santo Domingo easily is destined to become the granary and
source of supply for many foods for which both Cuba and Porto
Rico, neighbors in opposite directions, are in constant need. With
ample fertile soil available, reasonable in price, an equable tropical







REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


climate, an ideal geographical position for shipping and proximity
to the near-by markets, the future is not difficult to discern. Porto
Rico is densely populated, has a very restricted land area and can
not supply its own demands. Cuba lying to the northwest imme-
diately across the Windward Passage, is well populated, enjoys
advantages of an admittedly rich country, but it too, must look
elsewhere for some food supplies of prime necessity to meet the
ordinary consumption. Santo Domingo, on the other hand, has an
abundance of productive land awaiting proper development which
will come when its crying need for the right sort of immigration is
answered.
RAINFALL

Santo Domingo is a country which lies entirely in the Tropics but
whose northern limits in the Atlantic extend only 3 degrees south of
the Tropic of Cancer. Diversified farming benefits to a large degree
by the well defined and usually dependable demarcations for the dry
and rainy seasons. As a rule, the territory to the south, adjacent to
the capital, 17' north latitude, counts on the dry season to embrace
the months of December to June, with heavy rains expected during the
months following, though even during the dry season there are copious
rainfalls at intervals.
The year 1928 proved unusual in this respect and the country
experienced the changing phenomenon in common with the serious
floods and storms reported from distinct sections of the world. First a
drought in the spring became pronounced and only broken by the
rains of May 3. Naturally crops were damaged and the correspond-
ing usual yield diminished. This related particularly to cacao and
tobacco, two of the mainstays for export. Swinging in the opposite
direction the elements caused unprecedented damage by abnormal
rainfalls in November. In the Cibao section, where the most fertile
and productive land lies, the period between November 13 to 18
witnessed a precipitation of unprecedented proportions, which
brought with it floods and the inundation of vast stretches of farming
lands under cultivation. Obviously the damage was great, not
only to agriculture, but the public highways suffered from washouts
and fallen bridges, irrigation systems were destroyed, all to the material
detriment of the Government, called upon to make the urgent and
necessary repairs. In time nature will repay the temporarily dis-
tressed cultivator by rewarding him with increased subsequent crops
grown on the lands enriched by the alluvial deposits left by the reced-
ing flood waters.
In the belief that the data will prove of interest and practical value
for reference, there has been compiled, through courtesy of the several
enterprises mentioned, data of rainfall, by months, in different

SUMMARY OF COMMERCE

A complete compendium of the Dominican trade movement,
imports and exports, for 1928, has been carefully compiled, in exten-
sive detail, and the accompanying schedules will afford full particu-
lars under the several headings of the many lines of merchandise
entering from abroad and those products shipped to foreign markets.
To aid in the reference a brief comment is made of the principal items
appearing in the summary.






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


IMPORTS

Imports for the year 1928 were valued at $26,787,940, $19,674,954
dutiable and $7,112,986 duty free. The aggregate was $996,074 less
than the year previous. However, it compares very favorably with
1925 and 1926, which totaled $25,339,052 and $23,677,533, respectively.
The United States came first with merchandise valued at $16,-
374,110, or 61.12 per cent, as against 64 per cent ($17,772,254) for
1927. British India was second (Germany was second last year)
with goods valued at $1,437,809, or 5.37 per cent of the whole, made
up almost entirely of rice and jute bags. Germany was third with
a value of $1,400,082 (5.23 per cent); then England, $1,304,497
(4.87 per cent); France, $807,379 (3 per cent); Canada, $674,948
(2.52 per cent); Siam, $533,804 (2 per cent); Italy, $507,039 (1.89
per cent). The remainder was divided in order of importance between
Dutch West Indies, Netherlands, Denmark, Spain, Belgium, French
Indo-China, Japan, Porto Rico, and others.
As usual, cotton and manufactures thereof comprised the largest
single item of imports, having a declared value of $3,044,759, of which
the United States supplied $2,209,604, or 73 per cent. United King-
dom occupied second position with goods valued at $471,226 (15 per
cent). France, Switzerland, Italy, and Germany follow with small
amounts in the order named.
Rice, the principal food article imported, and a large revenue
producer, was in second place, with a valuation of $1,991,489; from
British India came the major portion valued at $677,658, or 34 per
cent. Siam was next with $533,804 (27 per cent). French Indo-
,China, value $321,310 (16 per cent); China, via United States,
$229,168 (11 per cent); Philippine Islands, via Germany, $67,618.
Machinery and apparatus, value $1,868,373, was third, the United
States furnishing $1,700,573 (91 per cent) and Germany, England.
France, and Belgium the small remainder.
There was paid for gasoline, the fourth article in value imported in
1928, $1,118,116. This was $213,344 in excess of what was expended
for the same article in 1927. The United States furnished 59 per
.cent ($658,704), Dutch West Indies 30 per cent ($338,137), British
West Indies 10 per cent ($113,801).
Automobiles were fifth place, according to a declared valuation of
$1,042,920, or $355,929 more than was paid for cars in 1927, practi-
cally all imported from United States.
Wheat flour imports to a value of $917,240 were received; the
United States supplied 92 per cent and Canada the small difference.
Jute bags were next in importance, value $869,575, of which 84
per cent ($729,083) were of British India origin.
All other (manufactures of) wrought iron and steel imported,
-mostly construction material, valued at $722,529, and the United

States furnished $542,351 (75 per cent). Germany, England, Czecho-

slovakia, Belgium, and France also figured in this trade.

Lard, another food product for which there is a constant demand,

was imported to the extent of $705,536, almost all from the United

States, the amount being in excess of 1927 by $88,988.

Silk and manufactures had a declared value of $655,599.

Then boots, shoes, and slippers, $552,190.

Next chemical and pharmaceutical products, $540,044.

REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


The foregoing review is confined to the major items of imports,
but schedules 2 and 6, Appendix C, to which attention is invited, give
the entire range of imports, with values, origin, and in addition com-
parative figures for 1927. Its practical worth having been demon-
strated, the epitome of those imports of the year which have aggre-
gated more than $100,000, incorporated as a part of previous reports,
is continued herewith in the present issue. It furnishes at a glance
valuable information to those interested in any important line of
imports.
EXPORTS

There were exported during the year Dominican products valued
:at $28,754,528, a decrease of $2,424,241, compared with the previous
year, when the total was $31,178,769. The decline followed a light
cacao crop and the lower price received for it. Tobacco also was
less than for the previous year. There was a small decrease in minor
crops, but the principal loss was due to the two mentioned. Cacao
7,211 metric tons, value $3,226,379; tobacco 6,231 tons, value
$1,308,070, were exported. While these two products decreased
there were gains. The increases were recorded for: Refined sugar
with a total value of $798,126 (the first year of export of this staple);
coffee, increase of $386,160; hides of cattle, $376,977; raw sugar
$243,540; sugar cane, $142,151; molasses, $91,266; and corn, $76,346.
Goat skins, logwood and hardwoods showed small increases.
There follows a brief resume of principal exports, in the order of
their relative importance, with comparisons for the previous year:
Sugar, raw.-This product continued as in previous years to be
the most valuable export of the country. The total exported, 335,020
metric tons in 1928, as against 295,896 in 1927, meant an increase of
39,124 tons. While the tonnage was considerably greater, a cor-
responding increase in value did not follow, owing to the exceedingly
low price of sugar. The total value of the 1928 export crop was
$16,911,925; for the previous year $16,668,385, or a small gain of
$243,540. For 1928 raw sugar represented 58.81 per cent, of all
exports. The principal purchasers follow in order with amounts and
values: Ireland, 175,620 metric tons, value $8,588,190; England,
70,564 tons, value $3,793,060; France 36,213 tons, value $1,848,421;
Canada 33,896 tons, value $1,677,644. The Netherlands, Scotland,
and Italy were purchasers in 1927, but took very little of the 1928
crop, while shipments to Ireland and France greatly increased.
SPECIAL NOTE.-The relation of the quantity of sugar consumed
in the country compared with the tonnage indicated in this report
is afforded by special data obtained from the several sugar estates






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP'


by the American Consulate, Santo Domingo. From that source it
is of record that the total sugar production in the Dominican Re-
public, crop of 1927-28, was 2,577,376 bags of 320 pounds each,,
equal to 412,380 short tons, of which 9'2 per cent, or 242,450 bags
were disposed of for local consumption.
Cacao.-This staple product had an off year in 1928, the crop
being little more than half in value of that exported in 1927, shrink-
age due to severe storms which occurred at flowering time. Only
19,301 tons were shipped to markets abroad in contrast to 26,513 ini
1927. The value of the 1927 crop was $7,476,794 while for 1928 it
declined to $4,250,415. Cacao was only 14.78 per cent of the total.
exports, against 24 per cent of the total in 1927. The United States
as usual was the chief, almost the only purchaser,, taking more than
96 per cent. A nominal amount, 283 tons, value $63,137, went to
Mexico. To the Netherlands 143 tons, value $33,490, and other
small purchasers were Porto Rico, France, and Colombia. The fine
blending qualities of Dominican cacao insures for it a permanent
American market.
Cofee.-For the first time coffee takes third place among the,
exports, a position previously held by tobacco. Coffee greatly
increased; on the other hand, tobacco had an off year. Coffee ex-
ported totaled 4,542 metric tons, valued at $2,135,682, while 1927
recorded 4,094 tons, value $1,749,522, an increase of $386,160.
Coffee for 1928 was 7.43 per cent of the total exports. The buyers
of the coffee crop were: Cuba, heretofore the leading consumer, was
replaced by France with 1,595 tons, value $711,483; Cuba second
with 903 tons, value $443,963. United States 775 tons, value
$336,126. Porto Rico, Italy, Spain, Netherlands, Germany, Dutch
West Indies, and French West Indies, each received small lots.
Leaf tobacco.-Climatic conditions affected the average yield, and
for the exports low prices obtained, so that tobacco had a decidedly
off year. Tonnage for 1928, 14,068, against 20,298 for 1927, meant a
loss of 6,230 tons. Value of 1928 crop, $1,274,416, while that of the
previous year was $2,582,486, a reduction of $1,308,070, or more than
50 per cent. Germany, the chief purchaser of Dominican tobacco,
received 4,365 tons with a value of $390,792. Netherlands was second
with 3,369 tons, value $304,892; France, 2,956 tons, value $260,346;
Belgium, 2,171 tons, value $183,199. French Africa, Canary Islands,
United States, Uruguay, French West Indies, and Spain took the
remainder.
Sugar, refined.-This is a new product and appears for the first
time in the tables of Dominican exports. The sugar estate of Boca
Chica erected a refinery in connection with its mill, and placed it on
the market for local consumption and export. 13,038 tons, valued at
$798,126, of refined sugar were exported in 1928, the major part to.





REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


United States, 8,149 tons, value $489,595; Canada, 2,606 tons, value
$150,395; Ireland, 1,863 tons, value $123,195. Dutch West Indies,
Virgin Islands, and British West Indies took the balance.
Sugar cane.-204,280 tons of this raw product were exported in
1928, value $774,367. It was a decided increase over 1927, when 164,-
991 tons were exported, valued at $632,216. Porto Rico, as usual, was
the only purchaser.
Molasses.-Following the increase in the production of sugar cane
exports of molasses correspondingly increased. Exports were 108,745
tons, value $619,238, as against 90,228 tons, value $527,972, in 1927.
To the United States were sent 106,188 tons, value $603,866, and to
Porto Rico the small remainder of 2,557 tons, value $15,372.
Hides of cattle.-This commodity carried greater value than corn
for the year. There were exported 1,103 tons, value $545,493, or
an increase over the preceding year in which the total was 627 tons,
value $376,977. The United States was the chief purchaser of hides,
taking 691 tons, value $357,293. Next came Germany with 406 tons,
value $185,823, followed by England.
Corn.-Of this product of increasing importance there were ex-
ported in 1928, 6,915 tons, value $320,127. Porto Rico received the
large bulk, 5,489 tons, value $258,887; the Dutch West Indies received
769 tons, value $37,759. Germany and France for the first time were
purchasers of Dominican corn, the former taking 255 tons, the latter
100 tons. Corn, which can be produced cheaply in all parts of the
country, bids fair with a European market soon to be one of the leading
exports.
MINOR EXPORTS
Among the items of minor exports which carried considerable value
during the year were: Goatskins, 203 tons, value $150,278; honey,
1,118 tons, value $118,080; beeswax, 171 tons, value $106,576; lignum-
vitae, 2,523 tons, $70,768; cattle, 2,761 head, $59,608; cigarettes,
29,600,700, value $53,355.
The United States, which in former years has been the principal
customer for Dominican exports, occupied second place in 1928, as
there were consigned to Ireland products to the value of $8,711,480,
almost all of which was sugar, this being 30 per cent of the aggregate
value of all exports. United States made purchases of $6,516,963, the
major part for cacao, $4,121,437; molasses, $603,866; sugar refined,
$489,595; hides of cattle, $357,293; coffee, $336,126, with other minor
purchases. The United States took 22.66 per cent of all exports.
Other countries received in the order named: England, $3,921,027,
14 per cent; France, $2,848,677, 10 per cent; Canada, $1,828,189, 6 per
cent; Porto Rico, $1,516,440, 5 per cent; the small balance went to
Cuba, Germany, Italy, Spain, the Netherlands, Denmark, Haiti, etc.






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


Raw sugar, refined sugar, molasses, and sugar cane represented 66 per,
cent of the total value of exports for 1928, with a combined valuation
of $19,103,656. There was a considerable increase in these products
over the previous year. Cacao came next with $4,250,415, or 15 per
cent; coffee, $2,135,682, 7 per cent; tobacco, $1,274,416, 4 per cent;
hides of cattle, $545,493, 2 per cent. The 5 per cent remaining is
accounted for under the head of minor exports.
Complete statistical details of all exports are to be found in Sched-
ules 8 to 13 of Appendix C. There is inserted below a table showing
the 10 articles of export with a value of $100,000 or more, and the pro-
portional part shipped to the country which was the chief purchaser.

CARRYING TRADE

This important feature of the sea-borne trade is detailed in Schedule
2 of Appendix C, from which it will be seen that vessels flying the
American flag brought imports valued at $11,501,330, or 42.93 per
cent of the total $26,787,940. Norwegian vessels brought goods to
the value of $3,781,128, or 14 per cent. Dutch carriers were third
with merchandise to the value of $3,122,779, being 12 per cent.
German vessels conveyed merchandise valued at $2,276,378, or 81
per cent of the total. The remainder, 22 per cent, was carried by
vessels of other nationalities, listed in the schedule mentioned.
Exports from the Republic were valued at $28,754,528. American
vessels transported a greater portion of exports than did those of
any other registry, with a valuation of $6,748,706, or 23 per cent.
British ships came next with value $6,425,065, or 22 per cent. Cargoes
carried by British ships were almost wholly sugar to United Kingdom
and Canada. Norwegian ships third, value $3,024,282, or 10Y per
cent. Dutch came next with $2,714,043, or 9 per cent. German
vessels which in 1927 carried 6 per cent of the exports in 1928
dropped back to 3 per cent with value of only $805,874. The
remaining 31 per cent was carried by vessels of nations as follows:
Cuban, Italian, Spanish, French, Dominican, and others.

TONNAGE MOVEMENT

Total foreign tonnage for 1928, in and out, was 986,277 Mnetric
tons-242,692 imports and 743,585 exports. The same total for
1927 was 883,623, making a gain of 102,654 tons for 1928, the difference
being accounted for by a decrease of 9,100 tons in imports and an
increase of 111,754 tons in exports.

TRADE BALANCE

The total of Dominican foreign trade for 1928 represented $55,542,-
468, while in 1927 it reached $58,962,783, showing a falling off of
$3,420,315 for 1928. This was divided between $2,424,241 in exports,
while imports accounted for $996,074. The balance of trade in
favor of the Republic was $1,966,588, a decided decrease in com-
parison with the year 1927 ($3,394,755). Full details may be found
in Schedule 19 of Appendix C and the countries participating in this
trade are listed in Schedule 18.

CONCLUSION

The receivership in fulfillment of the several duties prescribed by
the international agreement constituting it attempts to keep in
close touch with those developments,/economic and governmental,
trade movement, and expansion which make for progress and a
broadened commerce, the latter naturally bearing upon a source of
income for the necessary fiscal returns. In an endeavor to record
for ready reference for those interested the salient developments
of the year are outlined briefly in these annual reports. Enough is
in evidence during recent years to warrant the statement that Santo
Domingo is on the upgrade, and this is reflected in the views freely
expressed by recent arrivals in the Republic who have engaged in
investigating trade possibilities. All of which supports the conclusion
that the immediate future holds out the prospect for a widened com-
merce in many directions, which surely will come with a better
employment of the country's agricultural domain.
Respectfully submitted.
