THE AMERICAN-DOMINICAN CONVENTION, 1924


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


OFFICE OF THE GENERAL RECEIVER,
Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, March 14, 1930.
SIR: There is respectfully submitted herewith the general report
of all transactions of the Dominican Customs Receivership for the
calendar year 1929, which corresponds to the twenty-third fiscal
period. With the report are presented collateral data and remarks
considered pertinent to certain fiscal matters and developments in the
country which bear relation to trade and expansion of commerce.
Pursuant to instructions of the general regulations governing, a
detailed statistical report comprising a summary of Dominican com-
merce for 1929 also is incorporated.
FOREWORD
In common with the other sugar-producing countries of the West
Indies, the year 1929 in Santo Domingo was marked by a lack of
general prosperity brought. about in a large measure by the world-
wide condition of overproduction, with attendant prices so low as not
to cover actual cost of production. Agitation in the American
Congress for a higher sugar tariff accentuated the unfavorable situa-
tion, for the effect of such legislation was discounted-closing the
door to a larger tonnage of Cuban sugar in the world's greatest market,
the United States, and that portion of the Cuban crop would compete
with other sugars in the remaining markets.
The period of economic stress through which the Republic is pass-
ing was emphasized toward the close of the year by the disastrous
effect of the collapse of values of all securities listed on the New York
Stock Exchange, but how well this country's international credit with-
stood the financial crash is reflected in the cable advice addressed
to the receivership by Lee, Higginson & Co., New York, fiscal agent
of Dominican loans, on November 1, 1929:
Dominican bonds held well during recent stock market break. Five and one-
half's, due 1942, selling at 92%; 5%'s, due 1940, both series, approximately 90%.

REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


High for year, 5y's, due 1942, 96%; second series, 98%. This depreciation com-
paries very favorably with the depreciation in other South American securities.
HIGGINSON.
It would appear that the strength manifested by Dominican cus-
toms bonds, guaranteed and supported by service rendered by the
Dominican Customs Receivership, is further augmented by the fact
that Santo Domingo is a country of diversified crops for export and,
therefore, commands a more favorable position in that respect than
is the case with either Cuba, Haiti, or Porto Rico.
COLLECTIONS
Gross collections from all sources during 1929 amounted to $4,989,-
527.06, being a. decrease (as compared with collections for 1928)
of $300,781.25 (or 5.69 per cent), which may be considered very satis-
factory when it is remembered that throughout the year prices ob-
tained for the principal products of the country ruled at low levels
and this had the natural reaction on importations owing to the con-
sequent curtailment of purchasing power.
Of the above total ($4,989,527.06), duties on importations amounted
to $4,891,423.35, as against a total of $5,191,481.22 in 1928, a decrease
of $300,057.87. In addition to providing for all charges in connection
with the service of the public debt, $89,142.34 was placed at the dispo-
sition of the fiscal agent as an extra payment for credit sinking fund,
pursuant to the convention requirement that there be allocated for
amortization 10 per cent of the excess over $4,000,000 of the customs
revenue realized in any year.
Full details of sources of collections will be found in schedules under
Appendix A.
DISBURSEMENTS

There was paid to the Dominican Government the sum of $3,477,-
845.58 as its portion of customs collection. Of that total $3,461,814.92
was by direct monthly payments and $16,030.66 in various amounts
paid for account of the Government and at its specific requests. This
is a convenience to the Government and is a service which the receiver-
ship is always ready to render in order to be of the utmost assistance
to the Government in its fiscal administration.
The sum of $1,219,148.04 was transferred during the year 1929. to
Lee, Higginson & Co., New York, fiscal agent of the Dominican loans,
for service of the outstanding indebtedness. Of this total, $119,148.12
was credited to the sinking fund in accordance with Article 1 of the
American-Dominican Convention of 1924, the remainder being for
interest charges on the loans of 1922-1926 ($549,999.96) and loans of
1926, first and second series ($549,999.96), or practically $1,100,000,
which represented 5% per cent on $20,000,000.







REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


Expense of administration of the receivership during the year 1929
totaled $236,036.13. Appenr A, with accompanying schedules,
contains full details of all disbursement-.

OPERATING EXPENSE

It is again to be reported that cost of operation for the year was less
than the 5 per cent, the authorized allowance, even after including
the amount of additional compensation which was granted to all
customs employees at the close of the year.
There was available for operation expense, based on the 5 per cent
allowance, the sum of $249,476.35; actual operating expenses in 1929
were $236,036.13 (equivalent to 4.73 per cent). Corresponding figure
for 1928 was $253,488.22 (equivalent to 4.79 per cent) representing
a saving in favor of 1929 of $17,452.09.
In accordance with the governing regulations, the difference
between the actual cost of operation ($236,036.13) and the amount to
which the receivership is entitled for same ($249,476.35) was transferred
by payment to the Government. This saving amounted to $13,440.22
in 1929, contrasted with the smaller sum of $11,027.19 in 1928. The
fact is to be stressed in this connection that the volume of customs
collected in the latter mentioned 12 months period was greater.
Details in full of all operating expenses are stated in Schedules
3 and 5 of Appendix A.

COMMENTS ON APPENDIX B
(Recapitulation of financial transactions of the receivership, April 1, 1905, to
December 31, 1929)
Coincident with the transmittal of this report the Dominican
Customs Receivership will have completed 25 years of operation April
1, 1930. What follows is a brief narrative of the major items of ac-
countability and disposition of funds handled within that period, which
form a part of the consolidation and recapitulation, Appendix B.
The grand total of customs collections was $100,268,199.38. The
total from all sources (including interest on deposits, sale of supplies,
etc., $265,751.93, and other items) amounted to $101,207,630.75.
The most prosperous year, from a customs-revenue standpoint, was
1920, total collected $6,273,741.24, while the year of lowest receipts
(excepting the nine-month period April 1 to December 31, 1905) was
immediately after the banner year 1920, for in 1921 customs collec-
tions declined to $2,859,866.40. The economic conditions which
brought about that marked decline were in common with similar con-
ditions prevailing throughout the world.
Expenses of receivership and customs service aggregated $4,398,-
243.03, or 4.39 per cent of total collection. The remaining portion







REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


unexpended of the 5 per cent authorized by the convention for the
whole period in review amounted to $0,166.93.
Including the original 1908 loan, the public debt incurred by Santo
Domingo, for which the customs revenues are pledged to be admin-
istered by the receivership, reached a total of $45,861,000, with a
balance outstanding December 31, 1929, of $19,684,300.1
Segregations and payments for service of the loans, interest, and
amortization, $47,834,074.12.1
The Dominican Government has received directly from its customs
collections a total of $45,266,818.64 (45.15 per cent) of total col-
lections, or a yearly average of $1,828,962.37. In the year 1927
the Government received the largest proportion as its share of the
collections, with a total of $4,513,500. On the other hand, the lowest
amount was paid to the Government in 1921, only $354,119.46.
Furthermore, the Government realized the benefit of the so-called
convention fund, totalling $401,928.35 and the remaining portion of
the unexpended balance of the 5 per cent allowance fund, $39,448.47,
by transfer on April 14, 1926. The following amounts, among others
of smaller importance, have also been paid for account of the Govern-
ment: For wharf and harbor concession $171,973.48 and for special
authorizations $245,289.96.

Of the total loans, nine in number, listed above, negotiated since
the establishment of the receivership and for which it has rendered
the required fiscal service, it is to be noted in the schedule imme-
diately preceding ("Recapitulation of outstanding indebtedness")
that all but four, considerably more than one-half of the total of the
obligations incurred, have been liquidated and canceled, and that, too,
within a comparatively short term of years as reckoned in the history
of big international financing. Sinking-fund payments have been

made, pursuant to the contract agreements, for account of loans now
outstanding and bonds have been purchased by the fiscal agent.
Owing to declining customs collections in 1928 and 1929, the extra-
ordinary sums available for amortization relatively have been small,
although a start has been made toward the liquidation of the loans.
In 1928, from collections of 1927, bonds of par value $180,000 were
bought, and in 1929, from collections of 1928, the total was $136,000,
leaving a total outstanding par value, $19,684,000, December 31, 1929,
and for the credit of which additional funds, $90,794.19, were avail-
able, as the corresponding statement above plainly reveals. The
current year (1930) is to mark the commencement of the fixed monthly
payments, $84,166.66, on March 20, 1930, for account of the earlier
loans-issues of 1922-1926-and an exactly equal amount August
20, 1930, for the loans of 1926-1926, first and second series.

OFFICIAL INSPECTION

For his first visit of inspection of the receivership as provided for
by general regulations governing, Brig. Gen. Francis Le J. Parker,
United States Army, Chief of the Bureau of Insular Affairs, arrived at
Santo Domingo November 3, 1929. He was accompanied by Capt.
Frank J. Keelty, Department of Finance, United States Army, as
assistant inspecting officer. Extending the work of examination and
inspection over a period of more than two weeks, not only the central

'office but the principal outside ports of entry were visited, the result
of which was reflected in certain changes directed and suggestions
offered of practical worth to the accounting system and the service in
general, but of particular advantage in making immediately available
detailed information relating to cost of operation under the heading
"Miscellaneous expenses" incurred for the upkeep, equipment, and
maintenance of the different offices and departments.

DAWES MISSION

The outstanding event of the year in Santo Domingo was the visit
of the retiring Vice President of the United States, Gen. Charles G.
Dawes, who, accompanied by a group of prominent Americans, non-
officials, men of notable standing in industrial, banking, and profes-
-sional life, came on the invitation of President Vasquez to perform an
altruistic work aimed to establish a Dominican budget system and
reorganize the fiscal administration of the Republic. The purpose and
object of the mission may best be defined by the text of the official
:invitation of the President to General Dawes:
I beg you to organize and accept the chairmanship of an advisory mission to
come to this country to recommend methods of improvement in our system of
economic and financial administrative organization, both national and municipal.
for the installation of a scientific budget system; and for an efficient method
whereby the Government may control all of its expenditures,
and likewise the understanding of General Dawes as outlined in his
address to President Vasquez on day of arrival, from which the fol-
lowing salient excerpt is taken:
President Vasquez, whose servants we are in this mission, is about to engage in
-a battle of peace as vital in its outcome to the Dominican people as any effort in
which they have ever engaged. President Vasquez has expressed to us his de-
termined purpose to rid this Republic of the last vestige of foreign interference in
its domestic affairs by bringing about that economical management of the Gov-
ernment's business, which is the people's business, which will furnish the funds to
pay the Dominican debt' and relieve this Republic from the control of its customs
by outsiders.
Let no one misunderstand or misinterpret the motives of President Vasquez in
doing us the great honor to ask our assistance in this final stage of the struggle for
the unrestricted sovereignty of the Dominican Republic. We are simply private
citizens who have had experience in our private business enterprises as well as in
past governmental connections with systems to obtain economy in ordinary
routine business methods.
The majority of those associated with me in this commission, while private
,citizens now, assisted in times past in establishing the American budget. Other
countries have studied this system and we have studied theirs. The Dominican
*Government is now joining other governments in a study which many of them have
heretofore overlooked-the taking care of the effective expenditure of funds and
the little savings which in a government add up to such large sums.
Arriving at Santo Domingo April 2, 1929, the economic mission
remained in the country three weeks, during which time, by working

day and far into each night, with a division of the work at hand among
the various members and extending the survey simultaneously to the
several sections of the country it completed its labor, which represented
a herculean task, as protrayed in a report of findings comprised within
a mimeographed report of 200 pages presented by General Dawes to
President Vasquez on his last day in Santo Domingo. The report was
exhaustive not only in the analyses of the actual fiscal situation but
for its illuminating expositions of the disposition of the proceeds of the
two outstanding customs bond issues aggregating $20,000,000. It
contained as well carefully prepared recommendations with checks
and safeguards described and drafts of legislation proposed to implant
the new system which would insure the coordination of all govern-
mental departments toward improving the national as well as munici-
pal financial systems, the scientific preparation of budgets, and a plan
for the control of expenditures as well as purchase of supplies.
Naturally every cooperation was afforded the members of the com-
mission to facilitate their work, and no time was lost by the Domini-
can Government in putting into operation the system recommended.
At the initiative of President VAsquez the Congress enacted the
following legislation: The budget law, the accounting law, the law of
finances, the law of projected public improvements, and a law
reorganizing the Government departments. The President promptly
appointed a director of the budget, a comptroller and auditor general,
and a chief coordinator.
The scope of the mission's endeavor took in the entire fiscal fabric
of the country with the exception of the Dominican Customs Re-
ceivership, which has successfully operated by virtue of the provisions
of the American-Dominican Coavention and subject to a budgetary
control at all times observed.
It was a source of pleasure for the receivership to be enabled to
render some service to the mission. All needed customs returns,
records of transactions, and specially prepared tables showing the
status and sinking funds requirements of the outstanding national
bonded indebtedness were put at the disposal of the members, some of
whom were furnished temporary office space in the central office
building.
The term "Plan Dawes," under which the Government now
operates, relatively is as well known and discussed in this small
Caribbean country as was the case of its prototype of a larger magni-
tude resulting from the work rendered by General Dawes in connec-
tion with the German reparations, an aftermath of the World War.
In resume, it may be stated that the practical result accomplished,
aside from the far-reaching effects which should extend to subsequent
years, provided the valuable precepts given are not ignored, was a
readjustment of the budget for 1930 in relation to that of 1929,






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


whereby the Government, with no appreciable increase in expected
revenues for the current year, would practice an economy aggregating
$1,191,551, and that, too, when the prevailing economic situation of
the country was extremely unfavorable. Incidentally the amount
mentioned would about offset the initial amortization requirement of
$1,262,500 for the bond issues, payments to commence in March,
1930, a similar outlay not having been mandatory in 1929.
As a mark of appreciation of the splendid work of a purely disin-
terested character rendered to the Dominican people, the National
Congress, by Law No. 1115, promulgated in Official Gazette No. 4089,
May 8, 1929, adopted a resolution giving General Dawes a vote of
thanks and ordered a medal to be cast and presented to him and to
each one of his coworkers.
The mission sailed from Santo Domingo on the return trip to
New York, April 23, 1929.

SPECIAL TAXATION

There was in operation during the year Law No. 949 promulgated
May 26, 1928 (Official Gazette No. 3976), which prescribed an addi-
tional schedule of taxation for the exclusive benefit of the munici-
palities and abrogated at the same time certain municipal ordinances of
varied tenor which had been in effect and were applied independently
in different sections of the country. The law is in two parts-one
(a) relating to the manufacture of alcohol and (b) excise rates on
imported alcohol, spirituous liquors, and gasoline.
With the new law there are in effect at present three laws which
affect certain lines of imported merchandise: Customs tariff proper,
Law No. 190 (a part of the internal revenue), and the one above
discussed, and the joint application thereof results in an excessive
taxation on one article of foreign manufacture-now very essential
to the trade movement and transportation facilities of any country-
gasoline.
It is interesting to note in this connection earlier reference by the
receivership to the effect of increases in customs duties on imports
under the heading "Recargo Municipal," fourth annual report,
in which was pointed out the danger involved to fiscal returns by the
injudicious accumulation of tax burdens on certain imports.
FIRE IN CUSTOMHOUSE, SANTO DOMINGO
For the first time in the history of the receivership a serious fire
occurred in one of the customhouses. At the port of Santo Domingo
in the early hours of night of September 22, 1929, a fire was discovered
in customs warehouse No. 8, which spread to warehouse No. 7.
Prompt and efficient work by the local fire department and the force
of cutsoms inspectors confined the fire and prevented it from reaching







10 REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP

adjoining warehouses. The total monetary loss was about $30,000.
This included value of cargo in the warehouse and parcel-post pack-
ages in the second story of the building awaiting customs dispatch.
Fortunately the greater portion of the damaged and destroyed
merchandise was covered by insurance. The customs law expressly
exempts the Government from liability in such cases.
Loss in customs duties collectible in an amount estimated at $7,500'
was sustained by the National Treasury.
Th4 damage to the customs premises was somewhat less than
$10,000. The Government, acting on a report and recommendation
from this office, immediately put at the disposition of the receiver
general funds to cover cost of needed repairs, which were undertaken
at once and the buildings have been restored to their former state.

DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE
In its painstaking survey of the economic situation confronting
the country, the Dawes Commission, in its printed report, page 70,
made the timely observation:
It is evident, from a study of the many important problems and administrative
duties with which the Secretary of Finance and Commerce is necessarily engaged,
that it has been impossible for sufficient time to be devoted to the requirements
of Dominican commerce, both foreign and domestic. The commission believes
that the installation of at least the nucleus of a Department of Commerce engaged
in furthering the interests of Dominican manufacture and of Dominican agri-
cultural products should be considered a prime requisite in the development of
the prosperity of the Dominican Republic,
and as a direct outcome of which the President, by decree No. 1168,
June 14, 1929, created the position of Chief of the Department of
Commerce, to be an adjunct of the Department of Agriculture, and
named as the first incumbent a prominent man of industrial affairs,
who in every way was well qualified to meet the requirements of the
position, along the lines recommended.

EXPANSION OF AGRICULTURE
Its importance to the country is such that this extended comment
on corn cultivation is made to be read in connection with a previous
discussion (corn) in the annual report of 1928. Both the people and
Government recognize and appreciate the vast potentiality of the
corn crop for export to augment the purchasing power of the country
and at the same time permit it to become less dependent on sugar,
the future of which is so uncertain, with restricted markets and
continued low prices.
The Corn Products Refining Co., a world-wide known organization,
head offices New York, has entered the agricultural field in Santo
Domingo. The object of this company is to promote the raising of
corn by the native farmers.







REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


With many factories for corn products in different countries of
Europe, to supply these concerns there is need for corn in enormous
quantities, and Santo Domingo, as a result of scientific surveys, is
considered an ideal source of supply. To demonstrate to the native
farmer how to obtain the best results, the company has acquired by
outright purchase several thousand acres of land near San Francisco
de Macoris in the fertile Cibao region. The clearing and planting
4,000 acres is in progress and this will be extended to about 10,000
acres. Warehouses and fumigating plants will be erected not only
for treating and handling of company's crops but as well corn bought
of Dominican farmers. The company intends to demonstrate the
possibilities of corn growing in Santo Domingo, and in so far as prac-
ticable to teach the native farmer to adopt the same methods in
order to standardize the entire output.
At present the production of corn per acre in Santo Domingo does
not exceed 30 bushels. The planting at San Francisco de Macoris
will be in charge of agricultural experts. Entomologists and plant
pathologists are to be engaged to protect the corn from insect pests
and to bring it to the high state of productivity.
No development of the past, with all circumstances taken into
consideration, augurs more for agricultural expansion in Santo
Doningo than does the very serious undertaking herein related,
with results already in evidence of a most encouraging nature.
YUCA (CASSAVA)
The same company which is planting corn at San Francisco de
Macoris has purchased several thousand acres of land near Santiago
for the cultivation of the yuca plant on a large scale for manufacturing
starch. Clearing and preparing the land are already under way, the
intention being to cultivate a total about 7,500 acres. As soon as
feasible a factory will be elected capable not only of handling the
production of this acreage but also an additional tonnage to be
raised by native farmers. The starch produced (together with the
by-products, alcohol and cattle feed) will be sent to the United States
and Europe, and the company anticipates making the first shipments
during January, 1931.
This constitutes the first attempt to produce starch for export,
though the cassava is an indigenous plant, which grows in wild
abundance and supplied one of the principal food staples to the natives
of pre-Columbian days. The industrial experiment now undertaken
if successful undoubtedly will lead to a decided gain for the material
productiveness of Santo Domingo and therefore be an addition to the
present number of diversified crops.

AIR LINES

Inaugurated in January, Santo Domingo was given an excellent
service by the Pan American Airways. Planes carrying passengers,
mail, and light freight were operated on a triweekly schedule each
way between Miami, Fla., and San Juan, P. R.
In addition to the above-mentioned company, the New York, Rio
& Buenos Aires Line (Inc.) solicited and was granted by the Gov-
ernment permission to operate their hydroplanes and include Santo
Domingo as a port of call for its established itinerary.
The ships of this company will make use of-the harbor of San
Pedro de Macoris, a city 40 miles distant from the capital, for land-
ing, owing to that port's larger harbor, well suited for the purpose.
The new service was inaugurated with the arrival, November 14,
1929, of the Sikorsky amphibian Buenos Aires, and the company
has announced its intention of starting a regular service with one
22-passenger plane weekly each way between New York and Buenos
Aires, on a six-day schedule.
Read in connection with the remarks "Lindbergh and Pan Ameri-
can Airways" appearing in the receivership annual report of 1928,
the foregoing indicates that this country is thoroughly abreast of the
times in the matter of international airway means of transport and
communication.
SUMMARY OF COMMERCE

Under the heading Appendix C will be found, commencing on page
30, complete commercial statistics of all imports and exports, quan-
tities and values, country of origin or destination, and the percent-
age of the whole exported to or imported from each country. Fol-
lowing a practice well established, there also is shown in parallel
columns data corresponding of similar transactions for 1928, so that
comparison may readily be made. There follows a condensed narra-
tive discussion of principal imports and exports, with values, quan-
tities, etc., together with recapitulations, also the tonnage movement
and the carrying trade engaged.

IMPORTS

The aggregate value of imports for 1929 was $22,729,444, a con-
siderable decline compared with 1928, which year totaled $26,787,940.
The decrease followed the low prices received for exports and con-
sequently restricted purchasing power for imported merchandise.
Of the $22,729,444 worth of goods bought in 1929, the United
States furnished $13,457,238, or 59 per cent of the total. This was a
slight decrease as compared with 1928, when the United States fur-
nished 61 per cent. Germany came second with goods valued at
$1,175,616, or 5 per cent, and England supplied $1,156,620, also

5 per cent. British India, which continued to furnish rice and jute
bags, came fourth with a value of $1,093,206, or 5 per cent. Siam,
also a source of rice shipments, followed with $650,906, or 3 per cent.
France 3 per cent, mostly medicines, perfumery, and wines. Canada
came next with 3 per cent; its products were salt fish, potatoes, and
flour. The Netherlands, Dutch West Indies, Spain, Italy, and
French Indo-China followed with 2 per cent each. Additional coun-
tries furnishing relatively small quantities were Belgium, China,
Denmark, Scotland, Ireland, British West Indies, Hong Kong,
Cuba, Japan, Czechoslovakia, Porto Rico, and others.
Featured as the largest single item imported in 1929 was cotton and
manufactures thereof, having a value of $3,263,515, or 14 per cent
of all imports. The United States furnished $2,574,185 (79 per
cent). The United Kingdom was second with cotton goods valued
at $386,705 (12 per cent). France, Italy, Germany, Switzerland,
Spain, and others furnished small amounts.
Rice continued to be the principal article of food supply imported,
with a value of $2,115,287. That exceeded the value of the same
article in 1928, recorded at $1,991,489. Siam furnished larger rice
tonnage, valued at $650,638. British India came next with $545,689,
followed by French Indo-China, value $458,894. The Netherlands,
Hong Kong, and United States also furnished some rice.
Gasoline, which was fourth in value of imports in 1928, took third
place in 1929 with a valuation of $1,063,679; the United States sup-
plied 60 per cent, Dutch West Indies 31 per cent, and British West
Indies 9 per cent.
Fourth in value ($807,829) was machinery and apparatus, of which
the United States furnished 85 per cent. The remainder came from
Germany, United Kingdom, France, and Austria.
Lard was the next in value ($783,982), 89 per cent of which was of
American origin. The Netherlands and Porto Rico furnished the
difference.
Wheat flour was sixth on the list with a value of $745,740, 96 per
cent of total being received from the United States. Canadian flour
competes in this market, but to minor degree (4 per cent).
Chemical and pharmaceutical products were imported having a
declared valuation of $662,024. From the United States came
59 per cent, the balance of the trade divided between France, Ger-
many, United Kingdom, and Porto Rico.
Jute bags were valued at $612,532, the bulk furnished by British
India, 93 per cent.
Silk and its manufactures carried a value of $567,483; the United
States supplied 79 per cent. France, Italy, Japan, Germany, and
England participated, but in small quantities.
Paper and manufactures figured in the trade to the extent of
$536,810.








14 REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


Wood, ordinary, for building purposes, a total of 10,046,042 board
feet, valued at $470,561, occupied an important place. The United.
States furnished 98 per cent of all received.
Wrought iron was next with a value of $452,904.
Imports of automobiles reflected the prevailing economic stress.
These which in 1928 occupied fifth place with a valuation of $1,042,920,.
in 1929 dropped to thirteenth place, only 645 in number, valued at
$442,749, or a decline of $600,171, considerably more than one-half.
For the practical worth it affords to a ready and comprehensive
review of Dominican import statistics, there follows a table indicating
all imports with a declared value in excess of $100,000, andin Schedules
1 to 7 (pp. 30 to 77) are to be found complete statistics of all imports,.
values corresponding, with parallel columns of similar data for 1928.

EXPORTS
The marked decline in both volume and values of imports in 1929
connoted the corresponding decrease in the total value of Dominican
exports. As compared with a total of $31,178,769 in 1927 and
$28,754,528 in 1928, the year 1929 records $23,736,497, or a reduc-
tion of 24 per cent, compared with the export figures for 1927 and
17 per cent contrasted with 1928. The tonnage of exports held
up well, but the low prices received for many of the crops caused
the aggregate of value to be much less. Sugar showed the greatest
loss; in 1928 there Was exported 335,020 metric tons, with a value
of $16,911,925, while in 1929 the quantity was 322,088 metric tons,
valued at $12,258,831-a loss of $4,653,094, or a decrease of 28
per cent. Cacao, with a greater tonnage shipped, nevertheless.
experienced an unfavorable difference of $380,331 in comparison
with the year before; the figures were, in 1929, 21,322 tons, valued
at $3,870,084, and, in 1928, 19,301 tons, carrying a value of $4,250,-
415, or a decrease of 9 per cent. Coffee, tobacco, sugar cane, corn,
and plantains each showed a good increase, and this development
may be accepted as significant.
Raw sugar.-In order of importance with regard to value, raw
sugar, as in the past, took first place, 322,088 tons, valued at
$12,258,831. The tonnage was less than in 1928, and, with the
lower prices prevailing, this leading product for export had an ex-
ceedingly off year. In 1929 sugar was but 52 per cent of the total
value of exports, while in 1928 its relative rating was 59 per cent.
The greater part of the 1929 crop was consigned to Queenstown,
Ireland, and thence destined to different ports in Europe. The
supporting export documents revealed the following distribution:
Ireland, 179,364 tons, value, $6,678,599; England, 53,496 tons,
value, $2,076,258; Canada, 41,939 tons, value, $1,648,208; and France,
36,073 tons, value, $1,428,503. Other purchasers in smaller quanti-
ties were the Netherlands, United States, and Sweden.
Cacao.-In 1929 there were shipped 21,322 tons, valued at $3,870,-
084. Comparison with 1928 is given in the first part of this chapter.
Cacao held second place in 1929 in total value of exports and ac-
counted for 16 per cent of the whole. Practically all shipments
went to the United States.
Cofee.-Again coffee had third place in value of exports, a position
occupied by tobacco prior to 1928. Coffee in 1929 (showing an
increase in tonnage), 5,508 tons, with a value of $2,444,238, repre-
sented one-tenth part of the total value of exports. France was
the chief purchaser, 2,053 tons, value, $889,445; Cuba second, with
1,228 tons, value, $529,666; then United States, 655 tons, value,
$276,547. Porto Rico received 603 tons, value, $333,213. This.

was more than the United States paid for 655 tons, owing to the fact
that Porto Rico only received roasted coffee while that to other
countries was shipped in its usual raw state. Spain purchased
392 tons, value, $178,863, and Italy received 304 tons, valued at
$125,170. Other smaller quantities were shipped to the Nether-
lands, French West Indies, and Germany.
Leaf tobacco.-In the valuation tables of exports this was fourth.
A slight increase in 1929 (16,464 tons, value, $1,381,482) over 1928,
with 14,068 tons, value, $1,274,416, was recorded. Tobacco sup-
plied 6 per cent of the total value of exports. German markets
well established in this trade continued the leading buyer for 1929,
consuming 40 per cent of the crop, 6,537 tons, valued at $552,372.
France came second with purchases of 5,173 tons, valued at $410,188;
then the Netherlands, 3,199 tons, $279,333. Belgium, French Af-
rica, Canary Islands, and Uruguay in the order named were small
purchasers.
Sugar cane.-There were shipped to Porto Rico, the sole consumer,
in 1929, 242,040 tons of sugar cane, valued at $931,203. This
marked another increase over 1928, when 204,280 tons, valued at
$774,367, were shipped to the same adjacent island.
Molasses.-While the tonnage of molasses was less in 1929, the
value was greater, and this commodity did not suffer in price as
sugar did throughout the year. Shipments for 1928, 108,745 tons,
value, $619,238; 1929, 100,617 tons, value, $688,640. To the United
States was consigned the entire putput. Molasses enters almost
exclusively into the manufacture of alcohol.
Corn.-The export of corn for 1929, 12,101 tons, valued at $437,191,
about doubled the shipments of the year preceding under compari-
son, 6,915 tons, valued at $320,127. However, owing to much
lower prices obtaining in foreign markets, there was not the cor-
responding relative increase in the returns for the staple. To Ger-
many was sent more of Dominican corn in 1929 than ever before-
4,276 tons, valued at $107,135, but Porto Rico remained the prin-
cipal purchaser, with 4,750 tons, value, $203,782, or 47 per cent of
the total. Cuba, Dutch West Indies, French West Indies, and
British West Indies in the order named also were consumers.
Other exports.-Hides of cattle were next in value, $268,358 (848
tons). Goat skins followed, 213 tons, value, $162,373, all to the
United States. Plantains came next in value, $127,011, 3,862
tons, or about six times the quantity shipped in the year previous.
Porto Rico took 93 per cent of the crop; United States the remainder.
Honey, with 1,089 tons, valued at $123,043; beans, 821 tons, value,
$104,186; and lignum vitae, 4,713 tons, value, $104,105, were among
the minor exports.

RELATIVE VALUE OF EXPORTS

Sugar cane and its several products, raw sugar, refined sugar, and
molasses, shipped in 1929 represented a value of $13,911,328, or 59
per cent of the outgoing foreign trade, a reduction in value contrasted
with 1928 ($19,103,656, or 66 per cent). Cacao was next in impor-
tance ($3,870,084, or 16 per cent); then coffee, $2,444,238, or 10 per
cent, followed by leaf tobacco, $1,381,482, or 6 per cent. Corn,
hides of cattle, goat skins, plantains, honey, etc., in all carried a de-
clared export valuation of 9 per cent of the total.

CARRYING TRADE

The Dominican Republic is well served by the merchant marine of
many nations. In Schedules 2 and 9 of Appendix C will be found a
'complete list of nationalities of vessels and tonnage carried.







18 REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP

Ships flying the American flag brought more imports than the
vessels of other countries. Merchandise and wares valued at $11,-
265,198, or 50 per cent of all imports, were conveyed in American
bottoms. Norwegian vessels occupied the second place, with a com-
bined value of $2,943,186 (13 per cent). German vessels were third,
with $1,833,073 (8 per cent); then Dutch, with $1,776,546 (8 per cent)..
Among other carriers were British, French, Italian, Dominican,.
Cuban, Spanish, etc.
For the first time imports were received ex airplane carriers. Goods-
to the value of $544 thus brought were given the usual customs dis-
patch. American bottoms also transported a greater volume of
exports than those of any other nationality, with products to the
value of $8,745,211, 37 per cent of the total. Ships flying the British
flag came second with $5,561,843 (23 per cent). The cargoes of
British carriers were almost exclusively sugar, the bulk of which was
for the United Kingdom. Italian ships were third in carrying trade
,of exports with cargoes valued at $1,766,379, or 7 per cent of the total.
Norwegian ships were next with $1,362,429, or 6 per cent; Dutch,
$1,331,477, 6 per cent; German, $1,294,991, or 5 per cent. Other
flags participating were Cuban, French, Spanish, and Dominican.

TONNAGE MOVEMENT

Total foreign tonnage in and out for 1929 amounted to 969,385
metric tons, this figure being slightly below that for 1928, with 986,277
tons. The following particulars indicate the proportion of imports
and exports and the figures corresponding for 1928 are stated to afford.
a comparison:

1929 1928

Tons Tons
Imports------------- ------ --- ------217, 841 242,692
Exports ----- 75-------------------------1,544 743,585

From the above it will be noted, that, although there was a decrease
of 24,851 tons in imports, on the other hand, exports made a gain of
7,959 tons, which showing is both significant and satisfactory in
connection with the expansion of agriculture.

TRADE BALANCE
During the year 1929 import cargoes entered Dominican ports to
the value of $22,729,444 and products were exported to the value of
$23,736,497, a balance of $1,007,053 in favor of Santo Domingo in
the matter of its foreign trade.
Total imports and exports for 1929 amounted to $46,465,941, as
against a total of $55,542,468 for 1928, a decided decrease of $9,076,527.







REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


This latter figure was accounted for between imports $4,058,496, and
exports $5,018,031.
Schedule 19 of Appendix C gives full details of above totals, and
participation of the different countries in these totals are pointed out
in Schedule 18.
As the final note to this summary, reference is invited to the fact
that under the liberal provisions of the Dominican tariff law, a con-
siderable proportion of all imports enter the country exempt from the
assessment and payment of customs duties. In this respect, in 1929,
imports on the free list had a total value of $5,302,402, compared with
the merchandise dutiable, $17,427,042, or an aggregate of $22,729,444,
as above indicated in several sections.

CONCLUSION
Since the first drafts of this report were prepared the Dominican
Republic has experienced and passed through a sudden and rapid
(February 23-March 3, 1930) change of Government personnel, the
effect of which, in a fiscal sense, will temporarily at least militate
against a smooth functioning of the administration and also play a
part in the economic stress now in evidence, a contributory factor
to the political unrest. President Horacio Vasquez, inaugurated July
12, 1924, served till March 2, 1930, when his resignation was pre-
cipitated by a bloodless revolt. No casualties nor property damages
were left in its wake, thus offering no grounds for the subsequent
presentation of inflated indemnity demands for alleged losses-
something unprecedented in the annals of the country in connection
with a complete governmental turnover, the net result of which may
portend an advance in public opinion and political education not
only for Santo Domingo but in the other smaller Latin American
Republics frequently beset by similar political crises.
Respectfully submitted.

General Receiver.
