THE AMERICAN-DOMINICAN CONVENTION, 1924


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


OFFICE OF THE GENERAL RECEIVER,
Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic,
February 27, 1934.
Sin: The outstanding feature and one to be stressed in the report
respectfully submitted herewith, which is the annual report for 1933,
the twenty-seventh fiscal period of the Dominican customs receiver-
ship, as prescribed by the general regulations governing, is the fact
that the gross customs collections, after registering declines, year by
year since 1927, compared with the corresponding period immediately
preceding, for 1933, reveal an increase by way of contrast with the
transactions of year 1932. This may be taken as indicative of a general
upturn in general trade conditions of the Republic. A summary of
commerce, complete with statistical tables of imports and exports
and corresponding comparisons, compiled in a manner to afford
ready reference, is incorporated as an integral part of the report.
Introductory to the various schedules, an epitome of the leading
articles which represent the major part of the entire trade will aid
in a better conception of the country's commerce.
COLLECTIONS
After a steady decline for 5 years, customs collections turned
upward in 1933, with a gross of $2,999,577.93 in comparison with
1932 collections $2,772,357.38 represented an increase of $227,220.55
or 8.2 percent. Of the total amount $2,729,319 or 91 percent was
taken over by the special emergency agent at the major ports of
Santo Domingo, Macoris, and Puerto Plata.
A change for the better in business conditions accounted for the
improvement. Duties on imports ($2,979,034.54) made up nearly
the entire total, only a nominal amount was derived from other
minor sources. Practically all lines of merchandise increased.
On the basis of collections of previous years, the total in 1933
would have been greater but for the fact that port dues (pilotage),

REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


a former item of customs collections, were eliminated the latter part
of 1932, by law no. 389 enacted by the Dominican Congress. Those
transactions now are treated as a part of the internal revenues col-
lected by the receivership, and amounted to $68,144 in 1933 (schedule
3, appendix E.)
The total of the Government's internal revenue collected by the
receivership aggregated $1,689,453.81 for 1933, compared with the
$1,505,756.94 in the previous year, showed an increase of $183,696.87
or 12.2 percent. The gain in customs $227,220.55, in internal revenue
$183,696.87, total $410,917.42 for 1933.
The schedules of appendixes A (customs) and E (internal revenues)
contain detailed accounts, statistical returns, and comparative table
in connection with collections, disbursements, and costs of operation.

DISBURSEMENTS
The year 1933 was the third calendar fiscal year wherein the opera-
tion of the receivership as outlined by the convention was affected
by the emergency law, the partial moratorium of sinking fund pay-
ments for the Dominican bonded indebtedness continuing in force.
However, for credit of the latter there was received from the special
emergency agent, and transferred to the fiscal agent, $100,000 for
application in the purchase and retirement of 1922-26 (42's) bonds.
That part of the interest payments which continue for receivership
account pertaining to the bond issue 1922-26 (42's) was promptly
met, being transferred to the fiscal agent in monthly installments as
required-the total was $452,017.56. But that amount was consider-
ably in excess of the total customs collections, which remained un-
affected by the emergency law; hence to explain the seeming anomaly,
funds as needed were requisitioned of the special emergency agent
and the aggregate received in 1933 was $340,000, of which $303,-
124.85 was utilized to make up the totals of interest charges, and the
remainder applied to complete costs of operation and for other duly
authorized disbursements.
The only other disbursement of magnitude, customs operation
expenses, amounted to $122,643.46. Savings effected in the 5 per-
cent authorized by the convention" for this purpose and other details
in its administration will be found under "Cost of operation", the
next following general heading.
Internal revenue disbursements, quite distinct from customs, were
made pursuant to the special agreement with the Government, which
received $1,600,962.80 of the total $1,689,453.81 collected. The
difference represented the deduction for administration, refunds,
and port service.






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


COST OF OPERATION
The receivership set a new low record for administrative cost to
collect in 1933, with total expenditures of $122,643.46. That was:
less than the outlay for any year since its establishment under the:
convention. However, to avoid making a doubtful claim, it should
be understood in this connection that the result was obtained partly
by the benefit derived by the Government as well as the receivership,
the outcome of the extra functions of the latter in collecting certain
internal revenues for the greater convenience of and at the request
of the Government.
Five percent of the gross customs collections, $2,999,577.93, made
available $149,978.90 to cover cost of operation. Actual disburse-
ments of $122,643.46 held the percentage cost down to 4.09 percent
with a net saving of $27,335.44, the amount unexpended. A strict
rule of economy prevailed and retrenchments made wherever feasible
throughout the course of the year, so that although the budget pro-
vided authority for $126,729.60, arrived at after a .series of previous
reductions, the lesser sum mentioned was actually expended--a sav-
ing of $4,086.14 (schedule 5, appendix A).
The 4 percent allowed for internal revenue collections produced
$67,578.15, of which only $46,403.85 was disbursed, or but 2.75 per-
cent of the collections (schedule 3, appendix E).
Again the budgetary authorization was not entirely utilized; total
authorized $49,325, of which there was expended $46,403.85-another
saving of $2,921.15.
Of the economies realized, $21,000 was returned to the Govern-
ment. After providing for certain other minor transactions there
remained a balance of $702.52 carried over to the new year in that
account to meet those items.
Considering the present enlarged scope of the receivership endeavor,
there was collected a gross of $4,689,031.74 (customs $2,999,577.93,
internal revenue $1,689,453.81) at a combined aggregate collection
cost of 3.61 percent. This economical showing not only bettered any
previous customs cost for a 12-month period, but likewise was well
under the total expenditure for both branches compared with the year
1932, thought at that time to be the extreme limit of reduction, when
$176,267.78 was required and expended for the routine of the service.
OPERATION LIABILITY AND ASSETS
Paragraph 6 of the general regulations for the administration of the
Dominican customs receivership, promulgated in Executive order by
the President of the United States, dated December 5, 1925, provides
that the balance of the operation fund be disposed of "on the first
day of the calendar year" following the year just closed. Although
such disposition actually is not made within the year under review,






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


its relation is such that embodiment in the report for that year is in
order. For that reason, schedules 13 and 14 of appendix A have
been added. These schedules demonstrate that on December 31,
1933, there was a balance of $27,547.49 in the 5 percent convention
account. Of this amount $9,264.75 was transferred to the accrued
liability account, thereby increasing that total available to $14,431.18,
allocated to meet all outstanding obligations (bills payable authorized
as of Dec. 31, 1933). Ordinarily the remainder, in this instance
$18,282.74, under normal conditions would have been placed at the
disposal of the Dominican Government, but due to the unusual sit-
uation prevailing which originated in the default of sinking-fund
payments due, a ruling of the Secretary of State, Washington, Octo-
ber 12, 1933, made it mandatory that that amount be transferred to
the fiscal agent to apply toward amortization of 1922-26 (42's)
bonds.
The two transactions mentioned were effected on January 19, 1934,
and disposed of the balance ($27,547.49). The unexpendable portion
in addition to $21,000 returned in 1933 to the Government for account
of internal revenue administration, represented a total saving in opera-
tion cost of $39,282.74 during the year. That exhibit may be accepted
as something unique at a time when governmental budgetary pro-
visions generally are insufficient to cover ordinary restricted require-
ments.
RECAPITULATION (APPENDIX B)
This is a stock item revised and appearing in each annual report
to make of permanent record the latest available statement of con-
solidated financial transactions, embracing collections, receipts, ex-
penditures, and dispositions of all funds relating to and handled by
the receivership since April 1905. Gross customs collections during
the period intervening from all sources have amounted to $112,518,-
179.53. In operation since October 1931 the emergency law caused
to be diverted from the direct receivership control, $5,625,227.34,
which amount is included in the grand total shown.

LOAN SERVICE
This continued to be rendered throughout the year in faithful
compliance with the provisions of the convention as relating to all
interest payments due, while transactions governing the sinking-
fund accounts were subjected to the working of the emergency law,
which in a large measure established a moratorium. A total of $907,-
417.56 for interest accounts was paid in 1933, $452,017.56 for the
Dominican 42's, by the receivership, and the balance, or $455,400 by
the special emergency agent for the later issue, maturity date 1940.
As such international transactions are relative, during a period of
stress and struggle confronting many countries that have defaulted







REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


completely on their obligations of a like nature, it can be stated to the
credit of the Dominican Republic that in addition to interest pay-
ments, there were recorded two payments for account of the sinking
fund of the earlier bond issue of 1922, one for $100,000 in September
1933, and the other $18,282.74 in January 1934 (accumulated from
1933 receipts) a total of $118,282.74, which added to the interest
payments, total $1,025,700 applied on the loan-service account for the
year. Analyzed in connection with total customs collections, $2,999,-
577.93, the proportional part of the Government's revenue from that
principal source of income dedicated to meeting its outside obligations,
for which its customs revenue is pledged, represented more than one
third (34 percent), a showing it is believed that will compare most
favorably with that of other sections, the economic plight of which
during these strenuous times has not been unlike that which has pre-
vailed in Santo Domingo.
At the close of December 1933, the total amount of Dominican
customs bonds outstanding, was $16,320,500. The statement which
follows gives full particulars of all payments made for account of the
several loans:

ARREARS IN SINKING-FUND PAYMENTS

As stipulated by the terms of loan-contract agreements of the Do-
minican customs bond issues, the required annual sinking-fuid pay-
ment for account of the 1922 issue, maturity date 1942, principal
$10,000,000 plus 1 percent premium, is $841,666.66 (one twelfth part),
and for the issue of 1926, to mature in 14 years (1940) $1,010,000, or
one tenth of principal plus premium, the total amount for the two
outstanding issues being $1,851,666.66 due annually until cancelation.
The only change in the situation as reported in connection with 1932
transactions, was the payment by the Government of the sum of
$100,000 in September 1933, to apply to credit of the sinking fund
corresponding to Dominican bonds 42's. That amount promptly
transmitted to the fiscal agent pursuant to the provisions of the emer-
gency law, enabled that officer to purchase bonds of a par value
$177,000. Arrears in these payments to December 31, 1933, aggre-
gated $3,981,825.11, complete particulars of which are outlined in

EMERGENCY LAW
The end of December 1933 marked the close of 2 full years of opera-
tion under the provisions of law no. 206, known as the emergency law,
which had for its purpose a partial moratorium of sinking-fund pay-
ments due on account of the Dominican national bonded indebtedness.
Since the enforcement of the law, which commenced in October 1931,
there have been but two transactions of minor amounts applied for
the retirement of outstanding bonds (particulars of the 1933 payment
related elsewhere).
From the three major ports at which customs collections are diverted
direct to the Government, the amounts for 1933 were as follows:
Santo Domingo ------------------------ -- $1, 594, 500
Puerto Plata------------------------------------ 579, 069
S. P. Macoris--------------------- 555, 750

Total ------------------------------------ 2, 729, 319
which was 91 percent of the total customs collections for the year.
From the total sum shown above there was paid by the special emer-
gency agent for account of interest charges on bonds due 1940, issues
of 1926, the sum of $455,400 in 12 equal installments of $37,950. To
the general receiver there was transferred by the emergency agent, as
required, $340,000 necessary to make up the total annual interest
payments for account of 1922 issue of bonds, as provided for in decree
no. 259, paragraph 6, which regulates the operations under the emer-
gency law.
A provisional continuance of operations sanctioned by this special
legislation, that otherwise would have terminated on December 31,
1933, has been enacted by the Government, pursuant to law no. 609,
published in Official Gazette No. 4627, November 18, 1933, which
provides that pending the consummation of certain arrangements
now in process, having to do with an economic readjustment of the
outstanding external indebtedness, the life of the emergency law is
prolonged. Hence, it is the understanding of the receivership,
based upon the tenor of an exchange of correspondence with the
Bureau of Insular Affairs that the original instructions issued in the
premises during the latter part of 1931, remain in force for the time
being and the necessary advice was promptly conveyed to the ad-
ministration of the three customhouses at which the emergency law
operates.
ANNUAL INSPECTION

Pursuant to a practical provision of the governing regulations that
an annual inspection of the accounts and administration of the
receivership be conducted "at least once in each year" by a personal
representative of the Chief of the Bureau of Insular Affairs, Lt. Col.







REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


Edward A. Stockton, Jr., United States Army, assistant to the chief,
arrived at Santo Domingo September 5, 1933, by the steamships
Coamo on the mission indicated. With 2 weeks dedicated to the task,
the inspecting officer audited the accounts of the central office at the
capital where the accountability is maintained. In Santo Domingo.
city he came in contact with the Dominican officials of the treasury
department and with the American Minister, for the usual exchange
of views so helpful in the ascertainment of pertinent facts which
bear upon the current administration; he also visited the three major
ports and several of the minor ones, to obtain first-hand information
concerning the routine of customs procedure, equipment of the
service, and the actual customs clearance and despatch of imported
merchandise. In addition he made a thorough inspection of customs
premises, office quarters, wharves, and warehouses at several of the
ports.
RECEIVERSHIP ACCOUNTABILITY

In the Dominican Republic there is an established governmental
agency, camara de cuentas (bureau of accounts) charged with the
examination and revision of the accounts of all administrative depart-
ments having to do with tax collections. The camara is accountable
to and renders its reports, with findings and comments, exclusively
to the President and National Congress. With that preface in mind
it is a source of satisfaction for the receivership to make of permanent
record in this annual review of its transactions, the fact that in the
cimara's report to Congress relative accounts of receipts and expendi-
tures for the year 1932, published in Official Gazette No. 4630,
November 27, 1933, the following appears (translation):
RECEIVERSHIP OF CUSTOMS COLLECTIONS
The accounts submitted regularly to this bureau for final examination, by the
customs receivership, afford evidence of the proper functioning of that fiscal
office.
The accountable returns of the receivership are rendered month
by month with an invariable punctuality, and embrace
all of the expenditures and disbursements of funds handled by the receivership
shall be covered by complete vouchers in duplicate, one copy of each such voucher
shall be * transmitted to the Dominican Government together with
the corresponding accountable returns,
as directed by paragraph 8 of the general regulations governing.

PERSONNEL

To put into operation a new alinement of personnel, the major one
in the history of the receivership, there was published as of date
December 22, 1933, Personnel Circular no. 53, authorizing 49 changes,






10 REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP

among which were 22 appointments, 24 promotions within the service,
and 3 reinstatements of former employees who had been dropped from
the roster on previous occasions for economy, but whose past services
had been satisfactory. All changes to become effective January 1,
1934. The several changes had become necessary for various reasons,
vacancies temporarily held open, removals for cause, transfers, and to
fill some newly-created positions authorized and provided the better
to care for the routine. The latter were encouraged in a belief that
there was sufficient evidence of an upturn in the economic pendulum,
a harbinger of a return of better times. A fixed hard and fast civil
service obtains with the receivership, so that ordinarily promotions
are made from the lower grades whenever practicable and original
entrance confined to junior grades and messengers, who thus are
afforded an opportunity to make good and then advance. For the
posts of celadores (customs inspectors) thought must be given to
brawn and stature as these men are called upon to perform their work
on the outside, on the docks, aboard vessels, in all kinds of weather
and throughout the 24-hour circle.
Results so far obtained, extending over a period of years, fully
justify and support the civil service now well implanted, and intended
at all times to promote the best interests of the Dominican customs
service in connection with the treatment accorded its native personnel.
A total of 172 employees is provided for in the 1934 budget, of whom
only 5 are American citizens.

LA ROMANA FRAUDS

The year brought to light a regretable condition at the port of La
Romana, one that mars an otherwise clean record for the year. It in-
volved a series of frauds perpetrated in connection with the collection
of wharfage on sugarcane shipments to Puerto Rico, an internal reve-
nue transaction now handled by the receivership for Government
account, and quite separate and apart from customs revenue collec-
tions under the convention.
At the port named the cashier was the offending employee, whose
peculations were made possible by rank carelessness and inattention
to the orderly despatch of the routine on the part of his immediate
superior. By alteration of weights on retained copies of manifests to
make them differ from the originals in possession of the exporter, and
juggling the proceeds of checks presented for payments of internal
revenue dues, it was possible that sums accruing were deducted and
withheld from deposits for account of export shipments over a period
of almost 2 years, from December 1931 to September 1933, and that
machination resulted in an aggregate fraud totaling $17,452.50, ascer-
tained as the outcome of a thorough check and revision.






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP 11

The culprit was arrested by the authorities and at this writing
awaits judicial action. The entire personnel of the port was removed
and dismissed from the service for inefficiency and for the salutary
effect it would have throughout the service. As the cashier and two
officials immediately responsible were bonded employees under a
fidelity fund bonding system maintained. by the Government, re-
covery on these bonds will be in order, by which the major portion of
the loss to the revenue may be recouped.

LAW 190 AND RELATED LAWS

The well-known law 190 has been applied to general imports since
November 1925, at which time it embraced 102 articles of various
classes of merchandise regularly imported. Many of the articles
scheduled were free under the customs tariff, but many others which
paid once under the tariff, were subjected to additional duties under
the guise of a consumption tax.
A strong reason advanced for the law was to protect home indus-
tries, but in practical operation the result of the law has been the
establishment of another dependable source of revenue for the Gov-
ernment as all collections by virtue of this so-called internal revenue
act go directly to the national treasury. Since the enactment of
1925, numerous amendments to the law have been passed as well as
other laws which levy still more fiscal contributions on imported
merchandise. The year 1933 was no exception. The trend of the
later laws have been to lay heavier charges on some of the prime food
necessities imported-butter, oleomargarine, vermicelli, rice, sugar,
and flour. By far the heaviest of these new imposts are on rice and
flour. These staples have been among the principal producers of
customs revenue. The laws recently enacted create an additional
duty of $2.25 per hundred kilos on rice. That rate plus the customs
tariff of $2.75 makes an extremely high total duty of $5 per hundred
kilos or $2.27 per hundred pounds. Flour which pays a customs
tariff of $4.50 per hundred kilos was further taxed $2 per hundred
kilos, making a total duty of $6.50 per hundred kilos, or $2.95 per
hundred pounds. These duties are much in excess of the current
value of either rice or flour. The combined duties on rice now
represent 169 percent, and on flour 170 percent, respectively, of their
declared values.
These additional duties levied by the Government as internal rev-
enue to increase its income for administrative needs, necessarily
connote a restriction on future imports, and thus will tend to reduce
amount of customs duties which otherwise would be collected. The
policy announced by the Government is one of extreme protection,
to force a greater reliance on food substitutes produced in the country.







T2 REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP

During the year 1933 the consumption tax assessed and collected
on the imports discussed in this chapter (not including consular fees,
wharfage, port dues or documentary tax) totaled the considerable
sum of $915,009.59. It will be appreciated that while this large
amount accruing directly to the Government is a great aid to it in
meeting operating expenses, at the same time the additional burden
must in a measure diminish the volume of customs, and these are
available to apply toward interest and sinking fund payments on the
outstanding bonded indebtedness of the country for which the
receivership renders the corresponding loan service.
The scope of the endeavor has been enlarged to such an extent
since the task of collecting certain internal revenue taxes and dues was
taken over in September 1930 by the receivership at the behest of
the Government, it has, been thought advisable to incorporate here-
with for general information and ready reference a schedule of such
laws in effect January 1, 1934, to wit:
Ley 190, internal revenue on certain imports.
Ley 949, special tax on alcohol and gasoline.
Ley 35, fees for consular documents.
Ley 139, wharf tax.
Ley 419, aqueduct tax.
Ley 389, port dues.
Ley 227, document stamp tax.
Ley 224, cement tax.
Ley 440, special tax on rice.
Ley 546, special tax on flour.
Ley 281, salt tax.

COLUMBUS LIGHT (FARO DE COLON)

In view of the subsequent important developments in connection
with the international undertaking of altruism destined to be of great
material benefit as well as intellectual advancement to Santo Domingo,
it is in order to extend the remarks which have appeared in previous
receivership reports-Columbus Beacon, page 6, report of 1927,
and Pan American Columbus Memorial, pages 6 and 7, of the
1928 report, which records President Coolidge's message to the Con-
gress of the United States (December 1928) and the favorable reaction
of Colonel Lindbergh to the project, intended as a practical aid to
aviation as well as navigation (February 1928).
Since the many preliminary steps, the first concourse of competing
architects, from whose plans the prize design ultimately would be
selected, was held in Madrid, April 1929, under the patronage of the
Spanish Government. It is a note of marked interest that at the
competition there were registered 455 architects, many of the first
rank, from 48 countries. Pursuant to the announced conditions, 10
preliminary designs were chosen by the jury of award for which each






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


contestant received a major premium of $2,000 paid by the Dominican
Government, and smaller awards in cash were made to secondary
contenders whose designs were held to be meritorious. Of the 10
successful contestants who became the finalists, 3 were from the
United States, 3 from France, and 1 each from England, Germany,
Italy, and Spain. These architects then had at their disposal the
ideas embraced in all plans submitted at Madrid and were invited to
resubmit their revised conceptions with models at the final concourse
celebrated under the patronage of the Brazilian authorities at Rio de
Janeiro in October 1931, when a jury of three architects of inter-
national renown in their profession made the final award of the prize
for the design which would become official and accepted for execution.
The verdict was unanimous in favor of a design submitted by J. L.
Gleave, a young English architect of Nottingham, a recent graduate
of the Manchester School of Architecture. The idea evolved by him
is original for memorials, in its imaginative power, recumbent in form
instead of vertical, and symbolizing the cross of Christianity, which
Columbus planted in the New World, he gave to the old. For his
wonderful creation the successful architect was awarded a cash prize
of $10,000, also paid by the Dominican Government.
The resolution by the assembly of the League of Nations adopted
September 1931 giving its stamp of approval to the project, also
carries it far afield from the original conception as a Pan American
endeavor, by extending to its aid world-wide support.
Two additional steps forward and of obvious significance were taken
in 1933. The first was the reproduction in miniature of the official
design at the Century of Progress International Exposition, Chicago,
on a site central and ideal, the construction being supervised under
the personal direction of the successful architect. The exhibit
attracted the attention of hundreds of thousands of visitors to the
great fair. Entitled to favorable comment is the fact that, as cer-
tified by the exposition administration, the Dominican Republic
enjoyed the distinction of being the sole Latin American country
having its own unit as a distinct exhibit.
The second development, also of marked import, was the resolution
adopted December 22, 1933, by the Seventh Pan American Con-
ference at Montevideo, Uruguay, in further emphatic support of and
adhesion to the Columbus Memorial; the resolution, translated from
the original text in the Spanish language, follows:
The delegations of Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Mexico, and Uruguay, present a
proposed resolution on Columbus Memorial Lighthouse, reading:
Be it resolved by the Seventh American International Conference to-
(1) Reiterate the action of the Fifth American International Conference which
Recommended the erection of a memorial lighthouse to honor the memory of
Christopher Columbus in Santo Domingo, capital of the Dominican Republic and
the first permanent European settlement on the American continent;






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


(2) Recommend to the governments of the American Republics that they
continue to lend all their support to this project, and that at the proper time they
contribute for the erection of the monument to the Great Discover;
(3) Request of the Governing Board of the Pan American Union continuance
of its campaign in favor of the Columbus Memorial Lighthouse until the project
is definitely realized;
(4) Express to the Government of the Dominican Republic the gratitude of the
American republics for its generosity in making possible the work done to date
toward the realization of this laudable project of importance and continental
significance.
Launched originally in July 1914 on the eve of the World War, and
necessarily shelved during the ensuing period of universal upheaval,
the movement had a fresh start in 1922, since which date it has
received favorable editorial comment in the press of many lands.
Approved and endorsed by the Fifth Pan American Conference,
Chile, 1923, as well as by the succeeding Sixth Conference of the Pan
American States, Havana., 1928, it, like all similar undertakings of
magnitude, experienced the common fate incident to the world-wide
economic depression of 1929 and the years following. Its intrinsic
merit has been accentuated with the p]itagei of the years,.notwith-
standing the obstacles and vicissitudes encountered and to be expected
in connection with such a project.
Now, with the latest endorsement and vote of adhesion given by
the Seventh Pan American Conference in Montevideo, 1933, that
formal action taken, if translated into deed and serious activity by
various agencies coordinated in a way to achieve results, the necessary
concrete development should be forthcoming.
Santo Domingo, the first permanent Christian settlement (1496)
of the Spaniards in the New World, steeped in the romance of past
ages, is the chosen spot for the fitting though belated homage in endur-
ing form to the Great Discoverer, the original blazer of the trail,
whose transcendental achievement in the face of crushing obstacles
has meant so much to all Americans-a truly altruistic undertaking
which, by reason of its nonpolitical, nonsectarian but purely inter-
national appeal, symbolizes PanAmerican solidarity at its best.
By Dominican law the project was declared "a public utility of
great national interest" (Official Gazette No. 3803, Nov. 10, 1926).

CONSTANZA VALLEY

Nestled high up in the Cordillera Central, in the Province of La.
Vega., at an elevation of nearly 4,000 feet above sea level, in practically
the center of the island, lies the Constanza Valley, famed in history
since the early days of the Spaniards, and destined in time to have an
important part in supplying the country's demand for certain vege-
tables and small fruits now imported, not at present cultivated in
sufficient quantities. The crops also should figure in the future






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


export trade, to intensify the possibility of Santo Domingo becoming
in a larger measure than at present a supplier of the neighboring
Caribbean need of certain foodstuffs.
The combination of a colder climate and fertility of soil make for
productivity. Beans, peas, potatoes, cabbage, onions, garlic, and
other vegetables are now grown in the Constanza Valley where ideal
conditions abound. The corollary suggests, of course, an inviting
and profitable field for the fruits, usually not grown in the tropic belt.
Over the latest period of 4 years, according to data supplied by the
Agriculture Department, the maximum average temperature regis-
tered 750 F., the minimum 53. An average rainfall of 58% inches
was recorded for the same period.
Small crops of wheat and oats have been harvested, enough for the
immediate local consumption. That fact suggests possibilities in
other fields. The dimensions of the valley are limited, with an exten-
sion of 7 kilometers and average width somewhat less than one half
of that. To reach the outside world the sparse population of the sec-
tion makes use of a mountain trail to Jarabacoa, thence a roadway
for vehicular traffic leads to La Vega on the main modern highway
which bisects the Republic from north to south. Time consumed is
many hours, owing to necessity for employing animals over the wind-
ing trails after leaving Jarabacoa. The road then leads to higher
ground along which may be seen pine timber such as usually
encountered in northern countries.
A notable lack in Santo Domingo, even with its agreeable tropical
climate, is some resort within its own confines, where the people,
with little expense, may obtain the benefit of change of scenery and
temperature for recuperation of health and vacation periods, and
that too, without traveling far or in reality leaving home. The pre-
ceding remarks in this brief narrative descriptive matter should
suggest the availability of Constanza, in more ways than one, as
filling the void. In a word, the possibilities of the valley as an
attractive tourist resort far outweighs the material gains in agricul-
ture, owing to the limited area of the section.
The Department of Agriculture, which has displayed commend-
able interest in the Constanza Valley, in connection with crop pos-
sibilities, has recommended to the Government the construction of
a proper road for motor travel connecting with the main artery at
Bonao. That would shorten considerably the distance to be traveled
from the capital. The project merits serious consideration on the
part of those clothed with authority to act.

PUBLIC WORKS
A comprehensive program of public works which the Government
has had under way was carried forward vigorously during the year.
The program embraces different classes of public improvements:
Building and reconstruction of highways, bridges, wharves, dredging
harbors, public buildings, and street paving in the two principal
cities--Santo Domingo and Santiago.
For the first time the principal rivers are being bridged with
permanent steel and concrete structures built to withstand wind
and weather conditions.
Heretofore, traveling even over the modern roadways has encoun-
tered the difficulty and delay at times by the wooden or low cement
bridges being carried away or inundated, thereby closing the roads
to traffic.
During the year there have been completed or commenced bridges
over the principal streams. The bridges are:
One now under construction over the Higuamo River connecting
the highway leading from Santo Domingo City to San Pedro de
Macoris, the latter the principal town of the eastern section and
export center for sugar. For this structure of 1,044 feet length,
the claim is made it will be the longest suspension bridge in the
West Indies; contract awarded to John A. Roebling's Sons Co.,
international bridge builders. Promised ready for operation the
coming May, estimated cost in excess of $300,000.
Another, completed and inaugurated August 14, 1933, is of steel
structure, 450 feet long with 1,300-foot concrete fills for approaches,
which crosses the Yuna River at Bonao. Builders, the United
States Steel Products Co. This bridge is on the main highway
from Santo Domingo City to Santiago, the principal city of the
interior. Cost of this bridge, $95,852.
The Yaque del Norte River, largest on the island, is spanned near
Valverde (Mao) in the Province of Santiago, by a steel suspension
bridge 451 feet long, with an approach at either end measuring
156 feet. Bridge inaugurated and opened to traffic September 24,
1933; builders, John A. Roebling's Sons Co.; cost, $191,839.
Yubaso Bridge, cost $27,770, was inaugurated February 11, 1934;
is of steel construction, two spans of 120 feet each, crossing La
Toma River, province of Trujillo, on the highway leading from
the town of San Cristobal.
By far the most important and mostly used bridge in the Republic
is the one that crosses the Ozama River at the capital, the very
stream in which Columbus anchored his caravels on his third voyage
of discovery in 1498. The western section of that structure, which
includes the draw lever, was destroyed by the hurricane of September
3, 1930. Repairs of a temporary nature, using wooden timbers,






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


were made almost immediately after that catastrophe. A permanent
reconstruction was undertaken early in 1933 to repair the damage
done and put the bridge in a better condition than when originally
built. The work was completed and the bridge reopened to the
public July 12, 1933 (a national holiday). Cost of the general
repairs $20,343, and of the reconstruction $50,343; total, $72,686.
When the road under construction, from Sabana de la Mar to
Hato Mayor is completed, it will link the highway for vehicular
traffic, with dependable bridges over all intervening rivers, from
the south side of Samana Bay to Santo Domingo City, thence extend-
ing to Santiago and beyond to the Haitian border-451 kilometers
(280 miles).
The dredging of the San Pedro de Macoris Harbor, the principal
shipping port for sugar, will prove of great utility as the improve-
ment, when completed, will give a channel depth cf 20 feet to the
inner harbor, permitting the greater part of the cargoes to be laden
at the docks, thus avoiding considerable lighterage to the outer
harbor. The silt brought up in the dredging is piped across the
city to fill swamp lands. The reclaimed areas take on an importance
in the matter of availability, not to mention the item of value.
Operation of dredging commenced July 15, 1933, and is still in
progress. Contractor, Robert J. McArdle. (Pertinent data and
costs used in this chapter furnished the receivership, courtesy of
the department of public works.)

MISCELLANY
Monte Cristi pier.-.Is of wooden construction and juts out from the
shore, at a point known as Paroli, for a distance of 1,500 feet, protected
partially from the Atlantic by the promontory El Morro. Completed
in 1928 at a cost of $230,000, its occupancy, together with new customs
buildings, was delayed owing to lack of dredging necessary to make
the utility properly available for shipping. In 1933 certain repairs
and alterations were effected together with the installation of equip-
ment which allowed the dock to be used for the first time on March 9,
1933, when the Cuban steamer Presidente Machado (now Cuba)
arrived at the port. In an experimental stage at first, the wharf
and its appurtenances were formally turned over to the customs serv-
ice September 15, 1933.
Shipping.--Under the auspices of the Government, during the year
there was established by the New York & Porto Rico Steamship Co.,
a new service for certain Dominican ports. The steamship San
Jacinto, 6,069 gross tonnage, speed 15 knots, capacity for 200 first
and second class passengers, sails every 3 weeks fromNew York, via
San Juan, P.R., to Puerto Plata and Sanchez, Dominican Republic,
and return to New York via Mayaguez and San Juan. The first






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


arrival at Puerto Plata was Sunday, August 27, 1933. An appro-
priate inauguration ceremony was arranged, presided over by the
President of the Republic.
A smaller vessel operates in the same trade, visits the other Domin-
ican ports and acts as as an interisland feeder to the principal ship.
Expansion.-It is gratifying to make note that the Corn Products
Co., which has for some years past been operating a yuca plantation
and mill in the Cibao section for the production of starch (commercial
name tapioca flour) during this year increased its mill capacity by
the construction of an additional unit. The greater facilities should
lead to an increase in the future output of tapioca flour.
Japanese trade.-For some years past the Japanese have shipped to
Santo Domingo, silk, chinaware, and the cheapest grade of cotton
manufactures, in small quantities. But during the closing months of
1933 cotton piece goods in considerable quantities were received.
Japanese merchandise is carried on either American or Japanese
lines to Panama where it is transshipped to an American line with
direct connections with Santo Domingo, or transshipped at New York
on American ships engaged in the Dominican trade.
The cotton piece goods received so far imported is of the ordinary
class. Even with the high freights which merchandise shipped from
the Orient must bear, orders are prices c.i.f. Santo Domingo much
lower than for similar American goods. Several causes operate
against this new trade: The length of time, from 3 to 4 months, for
delivery; cash credit required placed in advance at port of shipment;
large quantities which have to be made for each order to make the
business profitable. Nevertheless it can be stated that the Japanese
trade advance has penetrated Dominican territory.
Plantains.-While there was but a slight increase in the exports
of this food article during 1933, as against 1932 shipments, it con-
tinues to be a marketable small crop, for which the demand is on the
increase. The closing month of the year witnessed renewed activity
in this class of exports to New York. The prospect for a sustained
business with the United States is good, as Latin Americans are
regular consumers of plantains as part of their daily diet, and New York
has a large Latin-American population. The demand for plantains
may become sufficient to place them among Santo Domingo's sub-
stantial cash exports. The crop is easy to cultivate in practically
any part of the island and the future production would readily respond
to any ordinary demand.
COFFEE
From time to time the receivership endeavors to stress the crop
possibilities of the leading exports, realizing their bearing on the
general economic condition.






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


The coffee crop of Santo Domingo has gradually been increased,
with slight fluctuations, until in 1932 it took second place in value of
all exports. It is again in second place for 1933, with almost double
the quantity exported in 1932. No other crop has a better outlook
for future increase. Coffee requires an altitude of from 1,000 to 2,500
feet for its best yield and the mountainous region or highlands of
Santo Domingo extend the entire length of the country, from the
Haitian border to the eastern extremity of the island. On many
parts of these highlands coffee has been planted and is in actual pro-
duction, but only a small portion of the available coffee land is in
cultivation. Coffee is a crop that can be expanded to include, perhaps,
10 times more acreage than could be conveniently had for any other
crop requiring level land. It can be grown on any kind of land
having the required altitude, in the valleys and on the plateaus of
the uplands, also on the mountain slopes, practically anywhere there
is a foothold for the pickers.
Coffee is shipped from every port of the Republic. Its cultivation
is general and the producing centers are conveniently near the coast,
and it is not a crop that fluctuates in production from year to year,
influenced by the price, as is true of tobacco, corn, plantains, or other
perennial crops. The life of the coffee plant varies from 10 to 40
years, and if properly cared for and the berry is picked, will continue
to yield. A considerable activity in new planting during the past few
years accounts for the large increase in the amount of coffee exported
in 1933 compared with 1932. As indicated by the record of coffee
cultivation and shipment, once a high mark is reached it is usually
maintained-does not vary following the price and demand. There-
fore the unusual increase in the latest exports likely will continue
with a gradual increase in production from year to year.
Coffee is the one Dominican crop that has obtained a relatively
fair price during the 4 years of the depression. As Europe is the
principal purchaser the fluctuation in exchange rates has been to the
decided advantage of Dominican exporters. The average crop for
export in the aggregate is not large, nevertheless it goes to a score of
countries, which would indicate its general acceptance by the trade.
By far the largest quantities have been for European consumption in
France, Spain, Italy, Netherlands. The participation of the United
States is relatively small. The price at which Dominican coffee has
been sold compares favorably with the returns received by the ex-
porters of other countries.
TOBACCO

No Dominican crop other than tobacco has had such vicissitudes
in the past 20 years, in production and price. There have been con-
tinual ups and downs in market demand and this regulated the quan-






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


tity cultivated for export. The peak year came in 1919 with 20,302
tons, valued at $6,661,033. There followed frequent changes in
price and quantity production until 1929. From that time a steady
decline was in evidence until 1932 when tobacco touched its low mark,
with 4,435 tons shipped, valued at only $224,903. Then in 1933
tobacco, reacting to a better market, showed great improvement with
shipments of 5,669 tons valued at $352,540.
As tobacco is planted and harvested in the same year, the quantity
produced can change greatly from one planting to another. As the
crop follows market demand the former can be doubled or trebled
from one year to the next.
Tobacco is the small farmer's crop. It is grown by more planters
on smaller plots than any other of the major Dominican exports, also
is his cash crop and any increase in production and sales means a
widened purchasing power available throughout the country.
A commendable effort is being made by the Department of Agri-
culture to improve the quality of Dominican tobacco, so it may better
compete with the Cuban brand. Also this department keeps a close
watch on the market and advises the growers when to sell and when
to hold their tobacco. This is a decided aid and invaluable service to
the growers who in a large part live in remote districts and do not
come in touch with any reports on the general conditions of demand
and prevailing price. Cooperating with the efforts of the Govern-
ment, the active Chamber of Commerce of Santiago, in the very center
of the tobacco growing section, supports the former, distributes seeds
and plants, and further still gives material aid. That organization
appreciates the fact that success for tobacco crops spells a general
improvement for the national commercial situation.
In 1933 there was a considerable increase in returns to the grower
for his tobacco compared with what he received for his 1932 crop.
Tobacco usually is sold by "seron", which weighs about 50 kilos.
During the past year a seron brought from $2.50 to $6 or double the
prevailing 1932 prices, when the depression was at low ebb. After
growers sell their tobacco to the buyers, usually representatives of
foreign houses, German, Dutch, French, Spanish; etc., these in turn
strip the tobacco and repack it in "pacas" for shipment abroad; each
paca weighs about 60 kilos.
Two general grades of tobacco are grown in Santo Domingo, one
known as "criollo" or native, the other as "olor" (aroma). Each of
these classes is divided into various grades. Generally speaking, the
cheaper grades are exported, which leaves the better one in the
country for the manufacture of cigars and cigarettes, a national.
industry.

While a notable improvement is recorded for 1933, the prospect for
1934 is even more encouraging. With larger areas planted and the
weather conditions fairly propitious for the new crop, coupled with the
prospect for a fair and better price, the Dominican tobacco crop for
1934 may be said to have a promising start. There is reason to believe
that tobacco now is on the upgrade in the way of production and that
it will resume its place as one of the most remunerative exports of the
country.
GOLD

In common with a renewed world-wide interest in gold (owing to its
increased value) this precious metal was sent out of Santo Domingo
in 1933, its declared value being $109,962. There were two classes,
old gold, which was actually broken-up jewelry, valued at $55,241;
the other, placer gold, washed from the river beds, making up the
remainder ($54,721).
The source of the Indians' gold was discovered by the Spaniards in
the gravel beds of the rivers of Santo Domingo in the closing years of
the fifteenth century. Closely following that period a large amount
of gold was taken out of nearly all the mountain streams of the
country. The washing of the gold required cheap labor. The Span-
iards had this in abundance, as they enslaved practically all the Ara-
waks and put them to work in the rivers. This work, made arduous
by the Conquistadores, a labor to which the Indians were unaccus-
tomed, soon killed them off in great numbers, and as the labor de-
creased, the amount of gold diminished until it became almost negli-
gible. There is ample evidence, however, that during the 400 years.
that have elapsed since gold first was washed from the streams, crude
placer mining in Santo Domingo has been attempted continuously.
As is the case elsewhere, the depression has brought about wide-
spread unemployment in Santo Domingo, hence more people-men
and women-have turned to the simple task of washing gold from the
streams. Until the present, only the crudest methods have been
employed. No apparatus is employed, no hydraulic power used, all
is done by hand. A laborer gains but a mere pittance for his day's
work.
It is considered significant that more than $50,000 was recovered in
1933 by the very primitive methods, and shipped from Santo Domingo,
and then only a small part of the washable gravel of the country was
worked. If that is the result without machinery, it can be expected
that the export of gold will continue and in increasing amounts, par-
ticularly as the inviting field is attracting the attention of mining
engineers.

SUMMARY OF COMMERCE

The summary of commerce of the Dominican Republic submitted
herewith relates to the trade movements during the calendar year
1933, which will be the period understood, unless otherwise stated,
in the general discussion of imports and exports and changes of im-
portance that are made the subject of special reference. Tabulated
statements are supplied and show the volume of trade in both branches
with values and quantities (if available) and with comparisons, with
special comment for the year 1932, of the leading articles entering
into the sea-borne business conducted with Santo Domingo.
An alphabetical arrangement of articles by group headings is shown
in appendix C commencing on page 50.

FOREIGN TRADE
[Values are in United States currency]
The value of the foreign trade of Santo Domingo has been declining
for the past 5 years. For the year under review the difference was
slight, much less than in any year since 1929. In 1933 the aggregate
declared valuation was only about $10,000 less than in 1932. For
that year the total was $18,958,614, or 18.35 percent under the preced-
ing year; while 1933 showed a total of $18,948,161, a mere nominal
decline. This was a remarkably favorable showing considering that
sugar, the principal crop, was short $2,461,930 in 1933 compared with
the preceding year.
Importations which reflect the buying power of the people showed
a sharp advance. In 1932 the total value of imports was $7,794,343,
compared with $9,322,688 for 1933, a gain of 19.61 percent. The
increase in imports was undoubtedly founded, in a large degree, on
the greater production of the major crops, such as coffee and tobacco.
The returns from these bring the money value directly into the hands
of the small farmers who after several years of very restricted prices
for their crops are in need of replacements, tools, equipment, articles
of clothing, etc. Salable crops pave the way for a greater volume of
imports.
The trade balance of the year remains in favor of the country with
a slight advantage. Imports totaled $9,322,688, while exports were
somewhat in excess of that figure at $9,625,473.
The tables which follow give imports and exports grouped according
to values and the respective countries of origin and destination:

In the following schedules appear the 10 principal articles imported
in 1933 grouped in the order of their respective values. These items
comprise 50 percent of total imports. With some slight changes
they are the identical articles which figured in the corresponding list
for 1932. Only two, cotton manufactures and lard, hold the same
relative position that they occupied in the previous year.

The United States again supplied the major part with 76.81 percent
of the whole. This was a considerable reduction as against last year
when the American participation represented 84.53 percent. The
United Kingdom and Japan both gained considerably in their ship-
ments over the preceding year. The United Kingdom furnished 13.12
percent and Japan 5.65 percent. These three, as the table following

The United States occupied first place and supplied more than

is included which accounts for the relatively high place the United
States holds in this line. The second contender was Japan as will

CHIEF EXPORTS

The range of products exported from the Dominican Republic is
limited, being almost entirely confined to agricultural exports. There
follows in order of importance the 10 principal exports of 1933; these
comprise 94 percent of the total. Tables are included which give
values and quantities for the past 5 years, and percentages of increases
and decreases. Also tables indicating destination of goods shipped
and a comparison of values with those in 1932.
1. Sugar, raw.-This, the leading article of export, registered a
sharp decline in quantity and value compared with the preceding year.
It is not, however, that there was a great reduction in 1933 over
other years, but rather that 1932 was exceedingly high. The year's
output was very near the normal production for this product. The

following table gives the quantities and values shipped in the past 5
years. It will be noted that while in 1932 sugar was 61 percent of all
exports, in 1933 it had fallen to 46 percent.

2. Coffee (see remarks elsewhere) appears to have a secure hold on
second place in value of products exported. While in 1932 the value
of this crop was only 11 percent, in 1933 it was 19 percent of the
total. A comparison of the 5 past years may be made in the table

3. Cacao, crude, which has been on the down grade in production
for the past several years, showed a healthy reaction this year, with
24-percent increase over 1932. Cacao is now in third place, while
for many years it was second in value only to sugar. The value of
cacao shipped this year is 13 percent of the total exports. The follow-
ing table gives the quantities and values exported during the past
5 years.

By the table following it is to be seen that there was a decided
change in the destination of cacao during 1933 as compared with 1932.
The United States still consumed the major portion of the crop, with
63 percent, against 94 percent of the total in 1932. Germany came
next this year with 33 percent of all cacao exported.

very hard hit by the depression,' has reacted very favorably during
the past year, advancing from sixth to fifth place in value of exports.
But as is to be noted by the table below, which gives weights and
values shipped during the past 5 years, the value of tobacco leaf ex-

6. Sugarcane shows a considerable reduction in amount shipped
this year as compared with 1932. That followed the sharp decline
in the bulk of this export; nevertheless all products of cane, sugar,
molasses, and sugarcane combined represented 55 percent of the value
of the total exports from Santo Domingo. The following table gives

Dominican cane goes exclusively to Puerto Rico for grinding into
sugar marketed in the United States. The South Porto Rican Sugar
Co., the owner of a large central at La Romana, Dominican Republic,
ships a small part of its cane produced in Santo Domingo to its sugar
factory at Guanica, P.R.
7. Lignum vitae.-For the first time this hardwood appears among
the 10 leading exports of the country. There has been a steady de-
crease in its export since 1929, until 1933 when a demand from the
outside made it a valuable item among exports. Quantities and
values for the past 5 years are given in the table below:

Throughout the year the country has continued to be well served
by steamship lines operating from ports in the United States and
Europe, and there was an addition to the service from New York to
the north side of the island via San Juan, P.R., particulars of which
are stated under the chapter "Miscellany" in this report.
The weekly service from New York rendered by two first-class
ships with refrigerating capacity, carrying passengers and mail, has
operated without interruption during the year.

American companies and usually operate from New York to Domini-
can ports. American bottoms, which previous to the past 2 years
occupied first place in this trade, changed to second place, with cargoes
valued at $3,160,376, or 34 percent of the total. Ships of German
registry follow, with 11 percent. Six percent was carried by Dutch
vessels. British vessels came fifth, with 3 percent. Other nationali-
ties engaged in the trade were Spanish, French, Cuban, and
Dominican.
Departures.-British ships came first in the export trade this
year as for many years past. They were principally engaged in
carrying sugar to European markets. These ships conveyed 21.19
percent of the total, with cargoes valued at $2,039,332. Next came
American bottoms, with 20.65 percent of the total cargo. Again
Norwegian vessels were in third place, with cargoes valued at
$1,917,750, or 19.92 percent. As will be noted, the three national
registries mentioned in the export trade were nearly equally repre-
sented in the tonnage carried. Other nationalities which figured in
this carrying trade were the Germans, with 7.50 percent; next Italian,
7.44 percent; and Dutch, 7.37 percent. Spanish, French, and Cuban
followed with smaller cargoes.
Full details of all imports by countries and carriers will be found

1932, recorded an increase of 29,166. The greater portion of this
tonnage, or 48,207, originated in the United States. Dutch West
Indies came next with 32,596 tons. This consisted almost entirely of
gasoline and crude oil. Germany contributed 16,790 tons; Den-
mark, 8,991 tons, in the main part cement; Puerto Rico, next in
line, with 8,397 tons. Among other countries represented were the
Netherlands, United Kingdom, Siam, British India, and Cuba.
A falling-off in the sugar crop for export, accounts for the decrease
in outward tonnage in 1933. It was not only less than the preceding
year but the smallest for several years past. With a total amount

Of the countries to receive exports from Santo Domingo, Puerto
Rico occupied first place with 212,165 tons. Sugarcane shipments
to that island account for the larger portion of this tonnage. The
United Kingdom came next in order with 152,756 tons, the greater
portion of which was sugar. The United States received 136,765
tons, somewhat in excess of its proportion in 1932. France, in the
same relative position as last year, was the destination of 76,176 tons.
These four countries took about 90 percent of the total cargo exported;
the remaining 10 percent was taken in relatively small amounts by
various countries.
The tonnage movement related above refers to cargo dispatched
on vessels which clear for various foreign ports, not necessarily in
the respective countries of final destination of the commodities
transported. Individual schedules, a part of the commercial sum-
mary, afford ample particulars in that respect.

CONCLUSION

It may be recorded that the commercial situation of the country,
in comparison with the acute crisis through which it has passed in
recent years, shows an improvement and may be accepted as satis-
factory. A degree of optimism prevails, in contrast with the opposite
extreme of a short time ago. In this respect it reflects, as it always
does, the economic condition of the United States, its chief source of
supply. A notable increase of crops, except sugar and sugarcane
for export, figure among the developments of the year, even though
prices received have continued low.
Government fiscal returns for 1933, both customs revenue and from
other sources, were greater than in 1932, so that the net total of funds
at its disposal for current administration and the carrying out of a
rather extensive program of public works, giving employment to
otherwise idle labor, was considerably in excess of returns from the
same sources in the previous year.
The crisis which had to be met in the fall of 1931, in common with
the then universal condition, no longer obtains to the same extent.
This change for the better lightens the burden of the service of Domini-
can loans represented in the external debt of the country.
Respectfully submitted.
WM. E. PULLIAM,
General Receiver.
To the CHIEF, BUREAU OF INSULAR AFFAIRS,
War Department,
Washington, D.C.
