THE AMERICAN-DOMINICAN CONVENTION, 1924


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

OFFICE OF THE GENERAL RECEIVER,
Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, March 11, 1935.
SIR: As directed by the general regulations governing, the annual
report of operations of the Dominican customs receivership, for the
calendar year 1934, the twenty-eighth fiscal period under the Conven-
tion, is respectfully submitted herewith. Financial tables to be found
in the several schedules accompanying, will afford particulars of the
sources of all collections and disposition thereof during the year.
Matters considered of greater importance to the country's commerce,
generally and the work of the receivership in particular are made the
subject of comment with especial reference to the readjusted loan
service for the Dominican bonded indebtedness, the principal con-
cern of the receivership. Incorporated, as usual, a permanent feature
of these reports, is a summary of commerce with complete statistical
tables of the foreign trade, imports and exports, comparisons with
similar transactions of 1933, all of which affords ready reference to
the changes that have taken place during the 2 years.

COLLECTIONS
The improvement in customs collections recorded for 1933 continued
throughout 1934, during which period the gross customs collections
totaled $3,189,200.12, an increase of $189,622.19 (6.32 percent)
compared with the year previous, and passed the 3-million-dollar
mark for the first time since 1930. Contributing to the gain in cus-
toms revenue were the advances in the value of imported merchandise
and a gradual betterment of commerce in general.
Of the total, $1,987,429 was diverted by the special emergency
agent, the amount being the combined collections at the principal
ports of Santo Domingo, Macoris, and Puerto Plata, from January
to the end of August, when the emergency laws terminated. Com-
mencing September 1, 1934, all customs receipts were handled by the
general receiver, whose status under the convention was reestablished,

in accordance with the plan of readjustment of the loan service, treated
more at length in this report.
Duties on imports yielded $3,165,075.16 and were the source of
practically all customs collections. The remainder, $24,124.96, was
derived from storage charges, fines, auction sales, and personal service
fees. Complete details of these transactions, given by months and
compared with the previous year, may Be found in schedules 5, 6, 7,
and 8 of appendix A.
DISBURSEMENTS

The largest item under this caption during 1934 was made up of the
several disbursements for account of the bonded indebtedness, a
total of $856,697.84. That amount included $244,387.50 received
from the special emergency agent in August and was immediately
transferred to the fiscal agent, New York, for credit of the sinking
fund account, both issues of the outstanding bonds.
All interest charges, in the aggregate of $442,227.60 were paid in the
usual monthly installments for account of the bond issue of 1922-26
(Dominican 42's), although in order to accomplish this it was necessary
to requisition on the special emergency agent for $231,000 during the
8 months' period January to August. Upon termination of the emer-
gency law, the receivership again assumed the interest payments for
1926-26 issue (Dominican 40's) and remitted to the fiscal agent a total
of $151,800 in 4 equal payments, for the months September to Decem-
ber. The sum of $18,282.74, carried over as a liability from 1933,
was forwarded to the fiscal agent in January 1934, for credit amortiza-
tion of 1922-26 issue. A tabulation containing the above items may
be referred to at the close of the comment on "Readjusted loan
service."
Next in order were disbursements, totaling $705,000 to the Domini-
can Government, which represented the remainder of customs col-
lections available during the concluding 4 months of the year (Sep-
tember-December). The resumption of these payments, discon-
tinued since July 1931, followed from the new plan to govern the
service of the loans, effective as of September 1, 1935.
Cost of operation for the administration and maintenance of the
customs service was $133,519.99, and this item is treated in detail
in the remarks which follow.
The remaining disbursements, such as refunds of duties collected
in excess, exchange charges, and others of minor importance, will be
found enumerated in schedules 1 and 3 of appendix A.
COST OF OPERATION
The convention allowance for operation costs-not to exceed 5
percent-made available $159,460, but in keeping with the strict
rule enjoined especially in rece4t-years by reason of the depression,






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


economical measures continued in force. A total of $133,519.99 was
expended, or at a percentage cost to collect of 4.19, which was not
much greater than the showing of the lowest year (1933) when the rate
was 4.09 percent.
By far the greater portion of the operating expense is for salaries,
and taking into account the fact that the number of employees was
increased and brought up to almost full budget limit during the year,
a substantial increase over 1933, the showing is considered creditable.
The total authorized by the Budget was $145,176.92, with a resultant
saving of $11,656.93, which was unexpended in connection with the
customs service, and thereby became available for other administra- I
tive purposes.
After all obligations had been provided for, as directed by the gen-
eral regulations, a total of $19,090.45 was paid the Government as
unexpended balance of the 5 percent convention account, a demonstra-
tion of practical economy for the year.
Remarks under this chapter relate to the customs operations only,
further details of which will be found in schedules 1 and 5, appendix
A. As to the work of internal revenue administration, pertinent
remarks appear elsewhere in this report.

OPERATION LIABILITY AND ASSETS
In December the sum of $15,000 was delivered to the Government
as an advance payment made available out of the unexpended portion
of the 5 percent convention account. After close of the year's trans-
actions a balance of $10,416.55 still remained. It was distributed as
shown in schedules 13 and 14, appendix A; $6,326.10 transferred to
the 1934-35 accrued liability to complete the amount refunded to
cover all outstanding 1934 obligations, and the remainder, $4,090.45,
paid to the Government. Authority for the disposition of funds accu-
mulated in the account, is contained in paragraph 6 of the receivership
general regulations, Executive order by the President of the United
States, dated December 5, 1925.
In connection with the disposition outlined above, a ruling of the
Secretary of State, Washington, November 27, 1934, directed the
general receiver to proceed in accordance with the provisions of para-
graph 6 of Executive order cited.

FOREIGN DEBT
There was recorded but a nominal change in the total of the bonds
outstanding, which represent the foreign debt of the Dominican
Republic. With limited funds available, the fiscal agent purchased
bonds, par value $28,000 of 1922 issue, maturity date originally 1942.
An additional amount of $244,387.50 for amortization was applied

in August 1934 but was not utilized by the fiscal agent for the pur-
chase and cancelation of bonds before the close of the calendar year.

bonds was outstanding. The particulars of all payments for account
of the respective loans, since issue, are given in the tabulation which

READJUSTED LOAN SERVICE

The outstanding transaction of the year, affecting the administra-
tion of the receivership, was the readjustment of the Dominican
bonded indebtedness, whereby the emergency laws were repealed and
the functioning of the receivership restored to its normal status in
complete accord with the provisions of the convention, effective date
September 1, 1934.
In common with other countries, particularly those of Latin Amer-
ica, the Dominican Republic, in the midst of the world-wide depres-
sion, was confronted with the problem of its foreign debt, represented







REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


by two bond issues negotiated in prosperous times on terms which
became onerous when Government revenue had declined to low
levels. The service of the loans stipulated in the loan contracts and
agreements, provided for very heavy withdrawals from customs
revenues to meet the annual sinking fund payments. These, added
to the interest charges, represented an amount at times in excess of
the total annual customs revenue. To confront such a situation the
Dominican Government in 1931 enacted emergency laws which
sanctioned the diversion of the major portion of customs collection
from the control of the general receiver and made the amounts thus
retained available for the Government to meet its current administra-
tive expenses. That in effect resulted in practical suspension of
sinking fund payments, as but two in the aggregate amount of
$150,000 were made, between October 1931 and August 1934, at which
latter date the emergency laws were repealed and the future plan of
readjusted service of the Dominican bonded indebtedness went into
effect. The original life of the emergency laws was limited to
December 31, 1933, but was extended by the Government to enable
its representatives to carry on the negotiations looking to a solution
of its foreign debt problem, which would insure continuation of
interest payments and moderate the annual amounts for sinking
fund to be more in accord with the country's ability to pay. Through-
out the period discussed, all interest payments faithfully were met
and thus was maintained the unbroken record of the country in that
respect, since the establishment of the receivership, a period going
back for more than 25 years.
The establishment under the auspices of the Government of the
United States of the Foreign Bondholders Protective Council, Inc.
provided an agency whereby those countries, the bond issues of which
had been negotiated in the United States, could present their petitions
for amelioration of the terms of the original obligations. The Domini-
can Government was prompt to avail itself of the opportunity, and
as an outcome, in August 1934 the announcement was made by the
Government that with the agreement of the Foreign Bondholders
Protective Council, Inc. and the approval of the Department of State
in Washington, it proposed to holders of Dominican outstanding
bonds a service which would include a reinstatement of all of the
functions of the general receiver of customs, the continued payment
of full interest and faithful observance of the several stipulations
quoted herewith that are to govern the future loan service, incorpor-
ated in law no. 742 published in Official Gazette No. 4712, August:25,
1934:
A. That in addition to the $150,000 already paid out of the accumulations of
customs revenue in-the emergency fund, so-called, since October 1931, there shall
be now paid out of such fund for the year 1934, a sum equal to 1' percent of the







REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


total outstanding bonds, approximating $244,000 for the purpose of amortization
through the operation of the sinking fund; that the remainder thereof shall be
turned over to the Dominican Government for government purposes and uses.
B. That there shall be paid for amortization through the operation of the
sinking fund, for the years 1935, 1936, 1937, and 1938, a sum equal to one-quarter
of 1 percent of the total present outstanding 1940 bonds, and that for the same
years, respectively, there shall be paid for the same purposes one-half of 1 percent
on the presently outstanding 1942 bond issue.
That, if at any time prior to January 1, 1939, the customs revenues reach an
annual amount (net after receiver expenses) of $3,500,000 for any 1 year, that
for such year an additional one-fourth of 1 percent shall be paid for amortization
through the operation of the sinking fund on both bond issues. That if customs
revenues (net after receiver expenses) reach $4,000,000, for any 1 year, there
shall be paid a further additional one-fourth of 1 percent for amortization
through the operation of sinking fund for such year; that after revenues aforesaid
shall reach $4,500,000 for any 1 year, there shall be paid a further additional
one-fourth of 1 percent for amortization through the sinking fund for such year,
but that in no event shall the Dominican Republic be required to pay more for
amortization and sinking fund in any 1 year than is set forth in paragraphs
C and D herein.
C. That from 1939 on until liquidated, 1 percent per annum of the presently
outstanding total of the 1940 bond issue shall be applied to amortization through
the operation of the sinking fund, which will approximately liquidate this entire
issue prior to 1970.
D. That from 1939 on until liquidated, 1% percent per annum of the presently
outstanding total of the 1942 issue shall be applied to amortization through the
operation of the sinking fund, which will approximately liquidate this entire
issue prior to 1962.
E. That the Dominican Republic shall have the right after January 1, 1945,
but not before, to retire such bonds at a price of 101.
F. To carry out the amortization plan herein provided for there shall be
remitted to the fiscal agents one-twelfth of the annual interest requirements of
5y percent of the presently outstanding total of the 1942 and the 1940 bond issues
together with one-twelfth of the minimum annual amortization requirement, and
the fiscal agents will be authorized and instructed to retain uncanceled in the
sinking fund all bonds purchased for the sinking fund, it being understood that
interest earned by bonds held iin the sinking fund will be used exclusively for the
purchase of additional bonds for the sinking fund in accordance with the plan of
the existing bond contracts.
G. That except as herein provided, all terms and conditions of the bond con-
tracts and the conventions with the United States Government shall be complied
with.
H. That all customs shall be collected as provided by treaty and the interest
and amortization fund shall be paid in the manner provided thereby, except as
herein modified, and that the remainder shall be paid to the Dominican Republic.
I. That if this proposed agreement is not performed in any essential particular
hereafter, it is agreed that all the terms of the original bonds and bond contracts
shall be restored to full force and effect as between all the parties hereto.
In condensed form the foregoing makes provision for: The pay-
ment of 1% percent amortization of the total outstanding bonds for
1934; thereafter greatly reduced amortization payments for the
years 1935 to 1938, inclusive, with increases contingent upon the
total amount of customs collections; that beginning in 1939 amorti-

zation payments are to be made which will retire the Dominican
5l2's original maturity date 1942, by 1962, and the Dominican 52's
original maturity date 1940, by 1970; an undertaking that no bonds
are to be called until 1945; and a further undertaking that upon any
default in this plan the bonds shall immediately be reinstated in
their former legal status.
In its petition to the Foreign Bondholders Protective Council, the
Government recognized that the settlement contemplated a necessary
extension of the administration of the receivership of Dominican
Customs for the period required to completely liquidate its loans.
Under the caption "Dominican Republic: External Debt", the
following statement was released by the Department of State, August
16, 1934:
The Foreign Bondholders Protective Council has recently completed an inves-
tigation of the financial condition of the Government of the Dominican Republic,
with reference to what it can reasonably be expected to do in taking care of
indebtedness represented by its bonds issued several weeks ago in pursuance of a
treaty between that Government and the Government of the United States. As
a result of the investigation and of the council's negotiations with the Dominican
Government, that Government has presented to the council a proposal with
respect to the future service of the bonds, which has received the council's
unqualified approval.
Under the terms of the treaty of 1924 between the United States and the
Dominican Republic, the General Receiver of Dominican Customs is appointed
by the President of the United States. Inasmuch as the arrangement proposed
by the Dominican Government to the Foreign Bondholders Protective Councilin
no sense impairs the treaty, but, on the contrary, places it again in full force and
effect, and inasmuch as the proposal provides for the payment in full of interest
to the bondholders, as well as for annual sinking-fund payments to make possible
the ultimate repayment in full of the principal of the obligations of the Dominican
Government, the General Receiver of Dominican Customs will be at once in-
structed by the Secretary of State, with the approval of the President, to conduct
his official activities and transactions in conformity with the terms of the pro-
posal mentioned and the arrangement thereby evidenced.
It is to be recorded that the arrangement is the first of the character
to be concluded since the depression brought about wide-spread de-
faults in international obligations. Commendation was given for the
spirit of cooperation shown by the Dominican Government and the
hope expressed that adjustments of a similar nature might be made
with other Latin American countries that are in default on their
foreign bonds.
INTERNAL REVENUE

Internal revenue taxes, independent of customs duties, but col-
lected at the customhouses under administration of the receivership
by virtue of a special arrangement with the Government, produced
the sum of $2,040,972.75, an increase of $351,518.94 or 21 percent
compared with 1933. As this large increase is not consistent with that






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


of customs gain in receipts for the same period, an explanation is in
order.
The main causes were: In February 1934 the comparatively
nominal tax on consular invoices was raised to 3 percent ad valorem
on the declared value. The resulting total collected under this head-
ing in 1934 was $291,638.98, contrasted with $108,626.50 in 1933-
an increase of $183,012.48, or more than double.
In November 1933 the tax on rice, known as law 440, was increased
from $0.70 to $1.75 per hundred net kilos. Total collected in 1934
was $208,620.09; previous year, $96,983.87; increase, $111,636.22.
Law 546, creating a tax on flour at the rate of $2 per 100 net kilos,
,did not go into effect until the latter part of July 1933, and produced
a total of $36,956.15 during the remainder of that year. In the
calendar year 1934, from that source was collected $103,993.36, an
increase of $67,037.21.
The wharf-service tax was revoked and replaced in July by the
cargo tax, etc., with schedule of rates upward. In 1933 the wharf
-service produced $458,080.73, while combined with its substitute in
1934, totaled $483,258.51 ($306,987.33 plus $176,271.18) an increase
of $25,177.78.
There was no change in the document tax but it shows an increase
'of $10,761 in 1934. This was due to the larger volume of trade, the
application of this tax being dependent on values as well as number
of transactions, both of which increased during 1934.
On the other hand, there were decreases from four other sources
which comprise this group, the most conspicuous being the decline of
law 190 which dropped from $622,984.99 in 1933 to $591,757.21 in
1934, $31,227.78 less. The explanation lies in the fact that there was
a falling off in the importation of the various items particularly
affected.
Operation expenses in connection with the application of these
several laws amounted to $59,079.55, or at a cost of 2.89 percent of
the gross collections mentioned previously, $2,040,972.75. There was
also paid for account of the Government $27,223.44 in refunds-
mostly for exonerations-and $7,566.36 for maintenance of port
launches. Deducting these amounts, the Government received
$1,951,501.73, to which were added $20,000 on account of the 4 percent
operation economies, and $235.55 interest on deposits, and made the
combined total of $1,971,737.28 paid by the receivership within the
year. Under the arrangement with the Dominican Government, the
receivership is allowed 4 percent for collecting this revenue. In 1934
the cost of collection was 2.89 percent, a decided saving to the Govern-
ment of $27,322.93, $20,000 of which was advanced as stated, on
December 19, 1934; and the account was closed by the payment of
the remainder, $7,322.93, on a subsequent date.







REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


Complete demonstration of all internal revenue transactions will be
found in appendix E, schedules 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5.
Previous reports of the receivership have discussed the additional
work undertaken of collecting certain internal revenue taxes em-
braced in a number of laws, for account of the Government, an
administration distinct and apart from the collection and disposition
of customs duties on imports accruing under the tariff, pursuant to
the provisions of the convention.
In 1930, when the extra work was first undertaken, the Government
made plain its position that the change would prove of decided benefit
by way of effecting economies in cost of operation, besides insuring
greater returns of revenue. Since 1930 several new fiscal laws have
been enacted that extend the scope of the endeavor. The record
establishes the fact that the results obtained have surpassed the
original expectations and it is a source of satisfaction to refer to testi-
mony from an outside source to that effect. During the course of the.
representations made by the counsel of the Government in connection
with negotiations for a readjustment of the conditions of its bonded
indebtedness, mention was made of the work performed by the re-
ceivership in the collection of certain internal revenue taxes and what,
it represented by way of economy. The language employed is quoted
herewith:
Three points, in addition to the explanation referred to, are pertinent. First,
it cost the Dominican Government an average of 15 percent to collect this tax.
By special arrangement with the customs receiver to make the collection before
distribution of the articles taxed, at a charge of 4 percent, a saving of 11 percent
in cost of collection is effected, or an average of about $100,000 a year. (Page 18,
reply memorial of counsel, presented to the council for the protection of foreign
bondholders of the United States, for and on behalf of the Dominican Republic.)

ANNUAL INSPECTION
For the purpose of conducting the annual inspection of the receiver-
ship, required by the regulations governing, Brig. Gen. Creed F. Cox,
Chief of the Bureau of Insular Affairs, arrived in Santo Domingo in
December. As General Cox had visited Santo Domingo on two pre-
vious occasions, on a similar mission, in 1930 and 1931, he was thor-
oughly familiar with the general scope of the receivership administra-
tion of the Dominican Customs Service. His inspection of the cen-
tral office, its accountability, collections returns and disbursements,.
was supplemented by visits to the several major ports of entry, in-
cluding the capital, Puerto Plata, Macoris, as well as Sanchez (on
Samana Bay), at which points first-hand information was obtained
concerning the established routine, personnel, equipment, condition
of customs buildings, and other matters relating to the service.






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


The visit of the inspecting official was timely inasmuch as it coin-
cided with the period when the complete restoration of the receiver-
ship to its convention status had just been accomplished.

PRESIDENT TRUJILLO
Presidential elections were held on May 20, when Gen. Rafael L.
Trujillo M., occupant of the post of President of the Dominican Re-
public, again was chosen for a period of 4 years. The inauguration
ceremonies on August 16, 1934, were featured by the attendance of a
large number of accredited diplomatic envoys and officers of various
countries who visited Santo Domingo on that special mission. Presi-
dent Trujillo, who is among the youngest of chief executives in Latin
America, has shown consistent interest and commendable zeal in pub-
lic works and improvements for the country, which would promote
the convenience of the people and add to the general development,
particularly along agricultural lines. His first term witnessed the
building of bridges and highway construction and repairs, and during
his campaign for reelection an extensive program of public works was
announced and with it the statement that this would be accomplished
as a part of the current administrative budgets.

TOURISTS
Of recent years the West Indies have become a section of increasing
interest and attraction for tourists, particularly from the United
States, and the steamship companies operating out of New York have
emphasized the advantages of cruises to the Caribbean. With the
changing economic conditions in European countries, making travel
there more expensive, many travelers formerly going to Europe have
been diverted to the Antilles. These passengers come throughout
the year, many utilizing their vacation periods to visit interesting
scenes in Spain's past colonial empire, and to see many historic spots
of the Spanish Main.
The year under review witnessed the arrival in Santo Domingo of
the largest number of tourists yet recorded, and it is gratifying to note
the satisfaction expressed by them about the historic points of interest
here in comparison with what is to be seen in other localities.
Santo Domingo possesses a magnificent historical background, it
being the first permanent European settlement in the New World,
and offers to the observing tourist many attractions. To the student
of Spanish culture and colonization, here are to be found the first
cathedral, the first forts, the first convents, and the first walled city
in the New World. The imposing edifices are so constructed that
many have resisted throughout the centuries the ravages of time, the
same type of buildings that Spain constructed subsequently in her






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


various colonies in the Western Hemisphere, as well as in the far
distant Philippines.
Naturally, the focal point for tourists generally is the cathedral,
the first built by the Spaniards, the work of construction covering the
period from 1514 to 1540. In this venerable historic edifice repose the
remains of Christopher Columbus, and the fact that the cathedral
reverently holds them within its walls, notwithstanding the con-
troversy in which the subject has been involved, acts as a magnet of
attraction for the average traveler and student of history who visits
this island.
Appreciating the advantage to the country that results from
tourist travel, the Government has instituted a serious campaign to
put the historic ruins, also to be found in the capital of Santo Domingo,
in an attractive condition for the visit of sight-seers, and a depart-
mental section has been created for rendering facilities to tourists.

AIR TRAVEL

Air transport for passengers, express matter, and the mails has
now become a fixed and dependable means of rapid conveyance, which
gives this great convenience to Santo Domingo, in common with other
sections of the West Indies and brings them into close contact with
the United States. The splendid service rendered by the Pan Ameri-
can Airways continued practically without interruption throughout
the year, making regular landings at two Dominican ports. A
privately owned commercial plane operates at the port of Barahona,
the passenger service being largely with the neighboring Republic of
Haiti. The domestic air service of the country is carried on almost
entirely by Government planes which carry mail and passengers,
mostly officials of the Government, between the principal cities.
The tabulation which follows gives particulars of the passengers
carried in 1934 to and from foreign ports:

JAPANESE TRADE

The receivership 1933 report directed attention to the growing im-
portance of Japanese trade with this section. The volume continued
on a much larger scale in 1934. Japanese merchandise received in the
Dominican Republic in 1934 was valued at $802,930, an increase of
400 percent over 1933, when Japan supplied goods with a valuation of
$160,557. Many articles heretofore received from other countries






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


have been replaced in part by those of Japanese manufacture and
the range of this merchandise has been wide, covering many of the
requirements of Santo Domingo, as will be noted by reference to the
following list of the most important classes that were imported into
this country from Japan during 1934:
Piece goods of silk, silk with cotton, and cotton; manufactures of
cotton and silk (shirts, underwear, towels, mosquito-nets, handker-
chiefs, bedspreads, blankets, neckties); knit goods of silk and cotton
(underwear, sweaters, socks, stockings, etc.); celluloid and tin toys;
buttons of pearl, bone, vegetable ivory, etc.; window-pane glass,
rubber and celluloid combs, pencils, canned salmon and sardines,
hydrogenated fish oil for the manufacture of soap, toothbrushes,
imitation jewelry of glass, bone, etc.; straw and felt hats, straw for
the manufacture of hats; china, earthen and glass ware, boots, shoes,.
and sandals of canvas with rubber soles and entirely of rubber; and
electric bulbs. Many of these are of admittedly inferior quality, but
the low prices prove attractive and make the sales.
A further idea of the variety of Japanese products may be gathered
from the statement that among recent imports were bicarbonate of
soda, the first shipment consisting of 12)( tons at a value far under the
similar American article, even though freight rates from Japan are
much higher than from the United States; and cigarettes, the latter
to compete, not only with internationally known brands, but with
Dominican as well, and these very naturally are given a high tariff
protection.
The Dominican Republic was visited during the latter part of 1934
by representatives of some of the large and most important Japanese
factories and business houses, for the announced purpose of studying
the situation with the object of intensifying their export trade with
this country. It has been clearly indicated that the Japanese are
striving to secure the Dominican market for their products as a part.
of the general campaign now conducted in Latin America. Low
prices of Japanese goods, sold in a depreciated currency, induce the
purchase of the merchandise in successful competition with articles
of other origin, although it is the general opinion prevailing among
the importers and merchants here, that the latter are of better quality.
Prices of Japanese textiles have ranged about 30 percent under those,
of American manufacture, although the percentages of other articles
have been much higher.
Several factors have operated to somewhat restrict this trade: (a)
Length of time required to receive goods after order is placed; (b)
credit being limited in many cases, sales made "cash against docu--
ments", although it now appears that certain houses are granting 60,
90, and even 120 days; (c) different patterns furnished from those.
ordered, and limited variety of selections.






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


The Japanese merchandise received during the past year practically
was all carried in Japanese and American vessels, with transshipment
at Panama and final delivery made from there in American ships.
With the present volume of trade (which Japan expects to increase
in the future), there is the probability that a new steamship service
will be inaugurated during 1935, Japanese vessels to make direct
connection between their home ports and those of the Dominican
Republic and of other Latin American countries.
It is a curious sidelight on this development that while the Domin-
ican Republic in 1934 imported Japanese goods to the value of $802,-
930, no Dominican exports went to Japan.
SUGAR

The principal factor that holds back greater progress towards
economic recovery in the country is the plight of Dominican sugar.
The actual situation may be described as desperate. The price ob-
tained for the product not only does not improve, but the tendency
has been towards lower levels. Added to the foregoing, a new problem
has arisen, and must be met in some practical manner if the industry
is to survive. Always confronted with a limited market, that is
threatened with greater restriction, even though sugar is offered at a
price insufficient to cover the average cost of production, without
taking into account any benefit by way of return on the capital in-
vested. To meet such a situation and in the hope that there may be
an improvement in price, some of the centrales have resorted to the
storage of sugar and this represents an added expense.
To the well-known causes which have operated in past years to
depress the price of Dominican sugar, tariff barriers, for example,
now are to be added new ones:
1. Approaching termination of the so-called "Chadbourne plan" for the
restricting of production in the leading sugar countries:
2. The recent executive action of the United States granting quotas for the
domestic crop and that portion regularly brought in from abroad, and the revi-
sion of the American-Cuban reciprocal agreement which places producers of
Cuban sugar in a better position to dispose of surplus stocks in the European
markets at lower prices in competition with Dominican exporters.
England continues to be the principal market for Dominican
sugar, and the price established in London for the crop of the pre-
vious year, due to the favorable exchange, registered an improve-
ment, but since June 1934 the price has declined until it has reached
the lowest level of the depression. Hence the very obvious critical
situation which now confronts the industry. Any offer of Dominican
sugar in quantity tends at once to lower the price of subsequent
shipments. At the present time the London quotation is the equiv-
122105-35--2






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


alent of about 80 cents per hundred pounds, laden on board at
Domincan ports. Against that price the cost of production of the
1934 crop has been placed at approximately $1 a hundred pounds
f. o. b. With the rising cost of materials imported for employment
in the manufacture, for the crop of 1935, the cost to produce must
be greater, notwithstanding the continued measures of economy
which have been introduced in the industry.
The ruinous price at which Dominican sugar is being sold in the
only market available can be better appreciated if considered in
connection with the returns from the sale of other sugar produced
in the same general area of the West Indies-Cuba and Puerto Rico.
On the identical date of the above-mentioned quotation for Domini-
can sugar, in the world's greatest sugar market-the United States-
the quotation for Cuban sugar was $1.90 per hundred pounds and
for the Puerto Rican product $2.80. The two prices quoted include
freight to New York.
When it is stated that in relation to total exports the combined
declared values of sugar and its byproducts-cane and molasses-
represented for 1932, 70 percent; for 1933, 55 percent, and for 1934,
59 percent of the total exports for those years, and the wages paid
to the thousands of workmen engaged in the major industry, consti-
tute the largest single item to replenish the purchasing power of the
people, the close relation of sugar to the general economic condition,
as well as the fiscal system of the Government, becomes apparent.
Obviously the importation of merchandise cannot be expected in an
expanding volume, which would yield increased customs revenue,
while the country's chief money crop, representing the one large
manufacturing industry, is struggling to maintain itself.

SUMMARY OF COMMERCE
The usual tabulation of the commercial statistical data relating to
imports and exports will be found in the accompanying appendix
C, which with its many schedules and convenient groupings, affords
a complete analysis of the Dominican foreign trade, embracing the
years 1934 and 1933.
FOREIGN TRADE
[Values are in United States currency]
The showing for 1934 was very satisfactory considering the unset-
tled world-wide conditions which continued and affected the overseas
commerce of all countries. For the first time in 5 years a gain was
made compared with the year before. The combined trade reached








REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


a total of $23,468,980, which was an increase of 24 percent over 1933,
the value for that year being $18,948.161. During 1934 importations
increased in the aggregate of value $1,251,656 compared with 1933,
the equivalent of 13 percent, and on the side of exports the increase
was relatively greater, $3,269,163, or about 34 percent. The value
of imports was $10,574,344 and exports $12,894,636, indicating trade
balance favorable to the Republic of $2,320,292, a sharp advance
when compared with the nominal difference of $302,785 for 1933.

PRINCIPAL IMPORTS

The following condensed schedules indicate the 10 principal articles
imported in 1934, with their respective values. A general change in
the order of importance in relation to 1933 imports occurred during
this year as will be noted below.
1. Cotton and manufactures of.-This item held its position as in
former years as the leading import, being nearly 23 percent of total
imports. The following table gives details of these imports for the
past 5 years:

Although the United States again furnished the greater portion, 56
percent, its shipments were 6 percent under 1933, the difference
having been practically all absorbed by Japan which was in second
place with 25 percent, or an increase of 474 percent compared with the
previous year. The leadership of the United States as far as cotton
textiles was concerned was menaced by Japan. The extent to which
the latter country cut into the former's textile trade with the Domini-
can Republic is revealed by the following interesting data. Referring
specifically to cotton piece goods (textiles) imports in 1934, these
amounted to 21,007,837 lineal meters, valued at $1,843,671 of which
volume the United States supplied 10,363,183 lineal meters, valued at
$1,108,130 and Japan 7,770,751 lineal meters valued at $473,397.
In 1933 the same class of imports reached the total of 19,248,020 lineal

meters, valued at $1,383,703. Of that amount the United States
:supplied 16,704,756 lineal meters, value $1,198,746 and Japan 556,238
lineal meters, value $28,570. While cotton textiles imported were
9 percent more during the year 1934 than 1933, imports from the
United States showed a decline of 38 percent while those from Japan
registered an amazing increase of 1,297 percent.
The total cotton piece goods imported of American manufacture
during 1933 amounted to 87 percent, against 49 percent in 1934.
-On the other hand Japan increased its sales from about 3 percent for
1933 to 37 percent for 1934. American cotton textile imports for
1934 showed the lowest figure for any like period during the past 5,
years. (Note: Percentages are calculated on lineal meters.)
The United Kingdom was in third place with 15 percent. The
following table gives complete details of the countries of origin, values
_and percentages of cotton goods shipped, with a comparison with the

United States which had controlled the trade in former years. The
increase of shipments from Japan in 1934 over 1933 represented 285
percent, whereas the loss to the United States for the same period was
8 percent. The decrease from the United States was not greater due
to artificial silk being grouped in this class, and the latter country was
able to maintain a high percentage of.those manufactures.

PRINCIPAL EXPORTS
As mentioned in reports of previous years, agricultural products
constitute the principal exports from the Dominican Republic, the
10 leading ones being shown below in order of value, with demonstra-
tion of values and quantities for the past 5 years; also percentages
of increases and decreases during the latter period. Destination of
these products and values compared with those embarked in 1933
are also shown.
1. Sugar, raw.-Raw sugar maintained the lead as principal export,
with an increase in value of 53 percent for total exports over 1933.
The table following shows that the percentage of sugar shipped dur-
ing 1934 was 52 percent of the total exports as compared with only
46 percent for 1933. An item of interest to be noted is that during
the year 1934 the declared export values of this article have been
regulated by frequent advices from the receivership covering the
-values to be accepted by the customhouses for export of raw sugar.
These values were based on quotations of the London market equiva-
lent to the price in United States currency, laden on board at Domini-
can ports at time of shipment. The plan has resulted in a more
,correct record of the statistical data than was formerly possible. The
sugar manufactured during 1934 was in excess of the volume of exports
shown, for, in addition to domestic consumption, a heavy tonnage of
sugar was retained in storage at the close of the year by two of the
largest centrals, awaiting an improvement in price. Quantities,
values, and percentages of increases and decreases for the last 5
years are shown in the following table:

total, whereas it was only 13 percent in 1934. A 5-year's comparison

increase of nearly 16 percent over 1933. Although the percentage of
total exports was 5.31 percent in 1933, molasses was only 4.59 percent
in 1934, but it will be noted in the detailed statement below that there
was a considerable increase in value for the latter year:

in exports being 23 percent over 1933 although the percentage of the
total exports remained practically the same as in 1933. The follow-

6. Gold.-For the first time this precious metal figures among the
leading exports. In declared value, an increase of 241 percent was
noted for 1934 compared with 1933. Of the total quantity exported,
$189,284, practically one-half represented old gold, which consisted
of broken-up jewelry, and the balance, $185,905, was placer gold ob-
tained from the.river beds. Shipments of the former probably will
decrease as the stock has been depleted. However, the prospects of
maintaining or even increasing future placer gold shipments are en-
couraging. Figures on quantities and values exported are available
only for 1932 to 1934, inclusive, and are shown below:

States receiving the balance, valued at $51,028 (old gold, $17,361;
placer, $33,667), or 14 percent. The following table gives the values

article exported during the past 5 years is outlined in the comparative
table below. Although the' quantity shipped in 1934 was only about
double of that exported in 1933, the percentage in value for 1934 was
more than triple that of 1933.

8. Sugarcane.-There was a drop of 58 percent under 1933 in value
shipped and sugarcane, which was in sixth place in 1933, closed the
year 1934 in eighth position among the exports. The suspension of
shipments to Puerto Rico, the only consumer, was the cause of the
decrease mentioned. The table below gives a demonstration of
quantities shipped and values for the past 5 years:

As noted above, Puerto Rico was the only consumer and took the
entire lot exported. As recorded above and in previous summaries
of commercial statistics, sugarcane has been shipped exclusively to
Puerto Rico for manufacture into sugar intended for the American
market. Now that Puerto Rico has been virtually closed to this
class of imports, there remains no other foreign market for Dominican
cane.
9. Corn.-A contrast with 1933 and other years, reveals corn one
of the 10 principal exports in 1934. There was an increase of 102
percent over 1933, but in the aggregate corn represented less than one
percent of total exports. The following table shows the quantities
and values exported during the past 5 years:

each compared with $13.52 for the previous year. Details of ship-

For particulars of the various other classes that constituted the
remainder of the Dominican export trade of 1934, reference is invited
to the groups under schedule 8, appendix C (Summary of Commerce).
These are conveniently arranged to show countries of destination and
comparison with 1933 similar transactions.

CARRYING TRADE
During the year the steamship service to the Dominican Republic
was ample to meet all requirements of import and export tonnage.
Small individual cargoes were the rule and these were handled by ships
of the established lines calling at the principal ports of entry. By
way of contrast with 1933, there was a considerably decreased ton-
nage movement.
Arrivals.-Vessels of Norwegian registry, practically all chartered
by American companies, again held the lead in value of import cargo
carried-$4,703,328, which represents 44 percent, an increase of 23
percent over 1933. American carriers, in second place, conveyed goods
valued at $3,885,952, or 37 percent, a gain of 23 percent over the previ-
ous year. German bottoms followed with $674,557, or 6 percent, a
decrease of about 33 percent under 1933. Dutch and British vessels
with $359,278, 3 percent, and $284,132, nearly 3 percent, respectively,
followed. Spanish, French, Cuban, and Dominican ships also partici-
pated. Complete details of all imports, by countries and carriers, are
given in schedule 2.
Departures.-British bottoms ranked first as export carriers, with
cargoes valued at $2,991,161, or 23 percent of the total, which is an
increase of 47 percent over 1933. Sugar for European markets formed
the principal cargo carried by these vessels. American ships, which
held second place last year, were superseded by Norwegian, the latter
carrying cargoes valued at $2,510,094, or 19 percent. American
carriers followed and took 17 percent with a value of $2,233,973, or 12
percent increase over 1933. Part of the loss sustained by American
vessels was due to smaller quantities of sugarcane shipped to Puerto

Rico than in other years. Ships of other registries followed as noted:
German, value $1,461,336, 11 percent; Italian, $1,012,049, 8 percent;
and Dutch, $838,852, 7 percent. French, Spanish, and Cuban ships
were also engaged in the order named. Schedule 9 gives complete
data, showing countries and carriers, for all exports. Schedules 15 and
15a indicate arrivals and departures of vessels by countries, and sched-
ules 16 and 16a demonstrate the cargo movement, giving entry and
clearance by ports.

1934--................------- ---- ---------------------------- 573,813 121,366 695,169
1933...................... ....----------------------...650,533 133,684 784,217

A decrease in both import and export tonnage compared with the
previous year was recorded; the decline amounted to 89,048 tons. The
difference was more apparent than real, and at first would appear
inconsistent with the generally larger volume of trade. Explanation
will be found in the paragraph following; while certain bulk cargoes
decreased, general cargo, which represented the greater value, regis-
tered increases along many lines.
A total of 121,356 tons was imported in 1934 as against 133,684 for
1933, a decrease of 12,328 tons (crude oil for fuel decreased by 15,000
tons). The United States supplied the major portion of general
imports, 45,612 tons, but 2,695 less than in 1933. Dutch West Indies
followed with 23,038 tons consisting mostly of gasoline and crude oil.
Germany with 15,313 tons; Puerto Rico, 10,045; and Denmark, 4,319,
came next. Other contributors of importance were the Netherlands,
United Kingdom, Cuba, and British West Indies.
Export tonnage also showed a decline, 76,720 tons less than 1933.
The United Kingdom with 199,754 tons took the greater part, mainly
sugar. Puerto Rico came next with 118,413 tons, 93,752 tons less than
1933. During 1934, Puerto Rico received a much smaller quantity
of sugarcane than in former years, which accounts for the total differ-
ence on the side of exports. The United States was third, with 113,130
tons, or 23,635 tons less than 1933. France followed with 10,012 tons,
and then Cuba, 7,789 tons.
The above data relates to cargo dispatched on vessels cleared for
various foreign ports, the latter not always those in the countries of
final delivery of the exports.
Schedules 15 and 15a give full details of the tonnage movement for
the year.
CONCLUSION

A forward movement of business generally was in evidence through-
out the year under review. That condition was reflected in the gain







REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP 33

in value of the country's overseas trade. Fiscal returns were greater,
the campaign to intensify agriculture was maintained, and the pro-
gram of public works made progress-a combination which should
warrant a favorable forecast for the immediate future. That will
depend in a large measure upon the acquisition of markets abroad for
Dominican products, which will yield a reasonable profit and thus
facilitate the usual exchange of commodities.
Respectfully submitted.
