THE AMERICAN-DOMINICAN CONVENTION, 1924


REPORT OF THE TWENTY-NINTH FISCAL PERIOD DOMIN-
ICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP
WILLIAM E. PULLIAM, GENERAL RECEIVER


OFFICE OF THE GENERAL RECEIVER,
Ciudad Trujillo, District of Santo Domingo,
Dominican Republic, March 7, 1936.
SIR: Pursuant to the general regulations governing, there is
respectfully submitted herewith the annual report of the Dominican
customs receivership for the calendar year 1935, the twenty-ninth
fiscal period under the convention. The schedules which accompany
and are referred to in the narrative section, contain tabulated state-
ments of all collections and disposition thereof during the year. The
report embraces internal revenue collections, which are distinct
from the customs, handled by the receivership under special agree-
ment with the Dominican Government. Together, the two sources of
revenue indicate total collections in 1935 on imported merchandise.
Topics of interest relating to developments and improvements
which bear relation to the general commerce of the country are dis-
cussed, and a summary of commerce is incorporated with the usual
statistical tables of the foreign trade, in which the volume of imports
and exports is shown, together with comparison of the trade of the
preceding year.
COLLECTIONS
Gross customs collections for 1935 amounted to $2,839,063.35
which, when compared with similar collections in 1934 ($3,189,200.12)
reveals a decrease of $350,136.77, or approximately 11 percent. The
unexpected drop in this branch of the revenue undoubtedly was due
to new legislation made effective the early part of the year. There
were two laws involved and though quite apart from the customs
tariff, yet they provide for tax contributions levied on merchandise
from abroad. Both increased formerly prevailing rates on many
imports, a reference to which is made in a succeeding chapter, "New
revenue laws" in this report.

REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


Import duties amounted to $2,801,528.90. They represented as
usual the principal source of customs collections and the decline was
under that heading. By way of contrast, there were two increases:
One from storage fees, from which the increase was $22,164.88,
nearly 73 percent compared with the previous year; and another,
fines which yielded more than in 1934. Importers were confronted
with a situation where it was advisable to postpone payment of
.taxes due by declaring their merchandise in deposit, for which an
additional charge is involved, until such time as they might be able to
adjust their import business to the new schedule. Ad valorem duties
promote a tendency to underdeclare values, hence detections with
resulting penalties account for the increase in total amount of fines
collected.
Under appendix A, schedules 5, 6, 7, and 8, will be found detailed
statements showing sources by months, ports, and comparison with
1934.
DISBURSEMENTS

The period embraced between the close of October 1931 to Septem-
ber 1, 1934, marked the operation of emergency legislation by which
the Dominican Government sought relief from the acute financial
situation which confronted it, brought on by the world-wide economic
depression. In practical operation the method adopted caused a
suspension of certain provisions of the American-Dominican Con-
vention, inasmuch as sinking-fund payments could not be made as
provided for, owing to shrinkage in customs collections. And the
Government diverted from the customs revenue, to apply to adminis-
trative purposes, amounts which had been pledged by the convention
for the service of the Dominican loans. Hence, the fact is to be
stressed that 1935 was the first complete calendar year since the
resumption by the receivership of its functions as authorized by the
convention, subject only to the modification of subsequent sinking-
fund payments, sanctioned by the readjustment plan which became
effective September 1, 1934.
Disbursements in the aggregate of $1,710,280.68 were made to the
Government and corresponded to the monthly payments of balances
in its favor from customs collections.
To the Guaranty Trust Co. of New York, fiscal agent of the
Dominican Republic, followed payments with a total of $956,850.
Of that amount $896,087.52 was for account of interest charges, and
$60,762.48, sinking fund. Of interest, $440,687.52 was for the
1922-26 issue (Dominican 42's) and $455,400 to the 1926-26 issue
(Dominican 40's), sinking fund payments $40,062.48 for credit of the
42's or one-half of 1 percent of the total- par value outstanding, and
$20,700 for credit of the 40's, or one-fourth of 1 percent of the total






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


par value outstanding. These transactions were in 12 monthly
installments of equal amounts.
Operating expenses amounted to $132,209.56 and will be referred to
in the following caption.
There was expended $7,781.25 per special authority and for
account of the Government, this in accordance with long-established
practice which has worked out to the benefit of those concerned.
Lesser disbursements, including refunds on duties collected in
excess and exchange charges, are itemized in appendix A, schedules 1
and 3.
COST OF OPERATION
In the year 1935 there was expended the sum of $132,209.56 to meet
the current expenses incident to the maintenance of the Customs Serv-
ice. This outlay included, in addition to salaries and other fixed
charges, the cost involved in purchase of necessary equipment. On
the basis of gross customs collections, the cost to collect was 4.66 per-
cent. In addition to the amount stated there remained outstanding
December 31, 1935, obligations for account of the budget in the amount
of $3,215.13, bills payable to be liquidated in due course. The aggre-
gate therefore for the year was $135,424.69. By virtue of provisions
of the convention, the 5-percent allowance for the expenses of collect-
ing the customs revenues made available the sum of $141,953.17, and,
further, the budget authorized for 1935 administration expenses was
approved in the amount of $140,068.17. As the year progressed it
became manifest that there would be a decrease in customs collections
(the cause of which is discussed elsewhere in this report) and that the
probable collections for the year would be under the total taken as a
basis when preparing the budget estimates. A readjustment became
necessary and was made during the latter part of the year, with the
approval of the Bureau of Insular Affairs. The receivership operates
under two distinct budgets-one for customs proper and the other to
cover cost of administration of internal-revenue collections for account
of the Government and disposition made thereof independent of
convention requirements.
The volume of the work performed in connection with the internal
revenue increased by reason of the operation of new laws, and it
became quite apparent that the Customs Service was bearing more
than it should of the total expenses. With that situation in mind, and
by virtue of the authority cited above, the sum of $10,285.07, corre-
sponding to the December expenses, was transferred from the customs
to the internal-revenue budget in order that the cost of operation of
the customs might be maintained within the convention allowance.
That the arrangement was quite in order and equitable may be appre-
ciated from the fact that with all expenses paid for account of the







REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


internal-revenue administration, there remained a considerable por-
tion unexpended of the amount authorized for delivery to the Govern-
ment. Particulars of expenditures incurred during the year for the
maintenance and operation of the customs service are contained in
schedules 1 and 5, appendix A.

OPERATION LIABILITY AND ASSETS

On December 31, 1935, there remained a balance of $12,502.82 in
the 5-percent convention account for distribution in accordance with
the provisions of the general regulations, which govern the receiver-
ship administration. Of that amount $4,659.65 subsequently was
transferred to the accrued liability account for credit of authorized
items as detailed in schedules 13 and 14, appendix A. The remainder,
$7,843.17, was transferred to a new account titled "Accrued liability
retirement fund", and was the first transaction in behalf of an admin-
istrative feature established by reason of a mutual agreement between
the two Governments.

BONDED INDEBTEDNESS

A permanent feature of these reports is to set out in convenient
tabulated form the actual condition of the external debt of the Domini-
can Republic at the close of each calendar year. The data embraces
pertinent particulars of the several outstanding bond issues, the aggre-
gate payments which have been made for interest account and sinking
fund in previous years, individual items corresponding to the pay-
ments made during the year under review (1935) and value of bonds
redeemed.
Par value of bonds outstanding December 31, 1935, $16,292,000, a
change of but $500, compared with the condition exactly 12 months
previous. One bond par value $500 issue of 1922, with original
maturity date 1942, was purchased by the fiscal agent, with funds
accumulated on deposit prior to the readjustment to govern sinking-
fund payments and future bond purchases, effective September 1,
1934. The fiscal agent has on deposit in a special account to the credit
of the Dominican Republic the sum of $305,149.98 as of December 31,
1935. This amount is made up of $244,387.50 for account of 1934
sinking fund in accordance with the readjustment plan, and 12
monthly payments in 1935 of $5,063.54, a total of $60,762.48 for the
year to credit of same account.
The record enjoyed by the Dominican Republic of faithfully and
punctually meeting all interest payments due on its external debt was
maintained by the showing for 1935.

INTERNAL REVENUE

Five calendar years have passed (date of commencement September
1930) since this additional administrative work was taken over by
the receivership at the request of and pursuant to a special agree-
ment with the Government. At the outset the scope of operation
was limited, gross receipts for the first complete calendar year (1931)






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


$1,652,669.58. In 1935 they totaled $2,816,787.41, which fact points
out the increased importance, only $22,275.94 less than customs col-
lections for the same period.
Compared with 1934 collections, the 1935 receipts of $2,816,787.41
represented an increase of $775,814.66 or nearly 38 percent. The
gain was accounted for by the operation of two measures, namely:
Laws nos. 190-854, and the cargo tax, which surpassed in yield the
previous year by $552,653.13 and $286,119.95 respectively. Both of
these laws were changed during the comparative period indicated,
and in each instance increases were voted. Law 854 revoked its
predecessor law 190 and amendments. A new wharfage tax in July
1934 was substituted. Port dues and the aqueduct tax also produced
additional revenue and are dependent on cargoes handled. An
increase of 7,402 tons incoming and 106,925 outgoing (mostly sugar
held over from 1934) offers the explanation for the two increases
cited. By way of contrast there were decreases in receipts under
law 949 (gasoline and spirituous liquors), also ia the returns from
consular fees and the special taxes on rice and flour, all of which de-
pend upon the volume or value of imports. Their combined decrease
totaled $67,856.12.
The absence of three items which appeared in last year's report
are noted: Cement tax, rentals, and fines. The first is applied only
in the event of cement arriving without quality examination cer-
tificate-none such was introduced. Rentals were discontinued by
termination of contract. Fines are now included in the total collec-
tions made under the particular law violated.
Disbursements.-A total of $2,734,687.43 was received by the
Government on account of internal-revenue receipts in 1935. Opera-
tion expenses were $80,081.56. Then came refunds, to the extent of
$29,258.90 and these were mostly for exonerations, the result of
authorizations by the Government after original payments had been
made. The small sum of $1,447.98 pertained to ascertained over-
charges through errors in application of the laws, and therefore
properly became the basis for refund payments. Port launch
expenses $8,474.97 including salaries of boat crews, $5,580, and
$2,894.97 for uniforms, hire, repairs, gasoline, oil, etc., are items of
disbursements realized during the year.
Operation.-The 4-percent authority for administration operation
expenses, made available $115,048.17 in 1935. Disbursements for
operation expenses were $80,081.56, equal to a percentage cost to
collect of 2.84. Compared with the authorized budget of $81,765.07
there was a saving of $1,683.51, all in salaries. For reasons set forth
in a previous chapter dealing with customs cost of operation, this
percentage of 2.84 is considered too low in comparison with that for
the customs. It became necessary when preparing the budgets for






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


1936, to make a readjustment that will result in a more equitable
distribution of the expense burden to be borne by each branch of
work, much of which is interlocked.
After payment of all expenses of the year incident to the work of
collecting the internal revenue, there remained a balance of $34,966.61,
which was the unexpended portion of the 4-percent allowance. Of
the surplus, $27,000 was paid to the Government during December
and the balance, $7,966.61, was retained as an available working
fund to cover disbursements during the first 2 months of the year
following, but is due and will be placed at the disposal of the Govern-
ment at an early date. This arrangement becomes necessary as the
internal-revenue accounts are balanced monthly and the balances
after deduction of 4 percent promptly paid.
Appendix E, schedules 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5, contain the statements of
transactions referred to in the foregoing remarks.
The increasing importance of the internal revenue collected on
imports is outlined in the tabulation following, which shows com-
parison for the years 1934 and 1935 and the decided aggregate
increase in collections for the latter year:

INTERNAL REVENUE COLLECTION AGREEMENT

The arrangement by which the receivership has been collecting for
Government account internal-revenue dues and taxes at the several
customhouses of the Republic, was for a 5-year period, which expired
September 10, 1935. Prior to that date an exchange of correspond-
ence with the Treasury Department resulted in a renewal of the
agreement. In his letter no. 6886, September 5, 1935, the Secretary
of the Treasury advised the receivership that the President of the
Republic had approved a continuance of the arrangement, and further
that the service rendered in the collection of the internal revenue by
the receivership had been satisfactory. The continuance of the
work also has the approval of the Bureau of Insular Affairs.
The work mentioned has been under receivership administration
upwards of 5 years. It consists in collecting internal revenue in the
various customhouses and applying the returns in the manner directed






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


by the Government. As stated in previous reports, this work is
entirely separate and distinct from the collection of customs under the
convention.
NOTE.-In order to avoid confusion, it is considered desirable to state that the
Government's Department of Internal Revenue is an independent agency and
makes collections other than those handled by the receivership for Government
account.
ANNUAL INSPECTION

Col. Donald C. McDonald, United States Army, Assistant to Chief,
Bureau of Insular Affairs, was detailed to make the annual inspection
of the receivership, an established feature of the routine, provided for
by general regulations governing. The inspecting officer arrived in
the country, via Haiti, December 11, 1935. The motor trip across the
island afforded opportunity for visiting the ports of Dajabon, Monte
Cristi, and Puerto Plata, in the northern section, prior to arrival at
the capital. The inspection of the customs service and administra-
tion at the port of Santo Domingo, was supplemented by a trip to La
Romana and Macoris, completing an itinerary which embraced the
principal ports of entry where the bulk of imports is handled.
Particularly concerned with the physical aspect and equipment of
the service, the inspecting officer was enabled to view at close range
the work in progress of providing new and adequate port and harbor
facilities at the capital.
RETIREMENT PLAN

Originally constituted by virtue of a Modus Vivendi promulgated
March 31, 1905, by President Morales, of the Dominican Republic,
the Dominican customs receivership was established and commenced
to function April 1, 1905. The fiscal arrangement was put on a
permanent basis by the provisions of the American-Dominican Con-
vention of February 8, 1907, subsequently reaffirmed and continued
in effect by the convention between the United States and the
Dominican Republic, December 27, 1924.
To provide for the expenses of the receivership and to cover the
cost of collecting the customs revenue, in article 1 of the convention,
authority was granted for 5 percent of the collections. As a period
of more than 30 years has passed since the establishment of the
receivership, the problem has arisen of making proper provision for
the retirement of those employees of advanced age who have met the
specified requirements of long and satisfactory service, in order that
the future routine administration of the service be maintained at the
established standard. Keeping within the authorized expense allow-
ance for operation, suitable provision for the retirement of personnel
is considered a matter of first importance.






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


Presented for the consideration of the Dominican Government in
September 1935, the plan in project received its approval. Later,
in order that the record be complete and the arrangement formally
confirmed, there was an exchange of diplomatic notes between the
American Minister and the Department of Foreign Affairs, thereby
,ratification of the retirement plan by the high contracting parties to
the American-Dominican Convention was made a matter of per-
manent record.
General regulations governing the application and administration
of the retirement plan are promulgated in an administrative circular
which embodies the plan approved by the Bureau of Insular Affairs,
December 30, 1935. The privilege of retirement is accorded any
employee who has rendered 20 years of service and is 60 years of age,
or has suffered physical disability incurred while an officer or employee
of the receivership, through no fault of his, the nature of the disability
to be determined by the findings of a board, the membership of which
is provided for. This new measure connotes the concern manifested
at all times by the Bureau of Insular Affairs for the welfare of receiver-
ship employees.
PUBLIC WORKS
In February 1935 announcement by the Government of a preten-
tious program to embrace port improvements and shipping facilities
was followed shortly thereafter by commencement of the under-
taking, which will give the port of the capital a man-made harbor
to accommodate the largest ships engaged in the trade. A special
contract let by the Government called for the construction of a
breakwater with an extension of about 1,800 feet, dredging of the
inner harbor to a depth to afford safe anchorage for vessels of deep
draught; the construction of a new wharf along the west bank of the
Ozama River; also the construction of two concrete and steel ware-
houses; the dredging of the channel of the river to 34 feet; and the
widening of the river to make a turning basin.
The work was commenced March 15, 1935, and has been carried
on with vigor throughout the year, the contractor, Sefior Felix
Benitez Rexach, a Puerto Rican, being personally in charge. He
has had considerable experience and was successful in the execution
of large construction projects in Puerto Rico. At the close of 1935 a
considerable portion of the work was completed.
The breakwater is formed of retaining walls of interlocking steel-
sheet piling filled with stone, with a concrete topping 10 feet above
sea level. The piling has been driven and the rock ballast filled in
the entire length and about one-third of the concrete topping of the
breakwater completed.
A suction dredge began to operate in July, dredging the harbor
made by the breakwater, the silt pumped over the breakwater into






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


the sea outside where it formed an artificial beach. This beach is
now some 200 feet wide and apparently the action of the sea is to
maintain it in position; thus it will be a protection to the breakwater
as it forms a bulkhead to secure it against undermining by the sea.
Simultaneously with the construction of the breakwater, work
was commenced on the wharf and warehouses. A reinforced-con-
crete wharf 20 feet wide and 1,400 feet long has been constructed,
and the work continues on the additional 600 feet to complete a
total length of 2,000 feet. The construction of the wharf is of the
highest type reinforced-concrete piles, with concrete floor, the struc-
ture protected by groups of wooden piles.
Of the contemplated warehouses, one, a concrete and steel struc-
ture, has been completed; it is 300 feet long by 60 feet wide, was made
available for use by the Customs Service before the close of the year.
Work on the second warehouse-440 feet long by 60 feet wide-has
been started. A concrete uncovered loading cargo platform, 384 by
67 feet, for cargo that does not require to be under roof, and 7,000
square yards of concrete paving, are items included in the general
undertaking, which have been finished.
Dredging has been carried on both in the channel and harbor.
Ships drawing up to 20 feet have entered the inner port and moored
at the dock. The river has been widened in front of the wharf for
a distance of 650 feet, making a turning basin to accommodate the
largest ships that enter the river. The channel and harbor are now
in better condition for handling the shipping of the port than ever
before. The wharf and warehouse space is sufficient to handle the
incoming cargo. In general, the port of the capital is in the best
condition in its history, and the improvement will be further marked
when the entire program now under way is finished. It represents
a decided aid to shipping and commerce as well as to travelers arriving
by steamer.
Bridges.-The bridge-building program outlined in the receiver-
ship report for 1933 was carried forward during the year. Three
large steel bridges were constructed and inaugurated for traffic, all of
them on the highway between the capital and Azua. The first one,
310 feet long, crosses Bani River; the second, 725 feet long, crosses
Nizao River; and the third, 756 feet long, crosses Ocoa River. With
the building of these bridges a permanent open road is insured to the
Haitian border. In the past, these rivers at certain periods of the
year when in flood had frequently carried out the wooden bridges
in use, thus tying up travel for days. Happily, such inconveniences
have been eliminated for it is now feasible to drive from Monte
Cristi, the port nearest the Haitian border on the north coast, to the
capital, thence to the border by the southern route, any time during
the year without difficulty in crossing steams.







REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


It is understood that all the construction mentioned has been
from current governmental income, a very creditable showing,
especially as the work is of a practical nature, done economically,
for the funds available have been very limited. Total cost of the
three bridges, $436,557, as reported by the Public Works Department.
Highways.-The highway system was well maintained; in addition,
extensions were constructed and opened to the public traffic. The
most important of the new highways is in the eastern section of the
island, from Hato Mayor, a distance of 28 miles, to Sabana de la Mar,
a town on the south side of the great SamanA Bay. This road is a
decided improvement. Heretofore the only way to reach the southern
side of the bay was by sea, or by rail to Sanchez, at which point
small boats afforded the usual means of transport. The new road,
which connects with the main highway, brings the south side of the
bay within 3 hours by motor car to the capital. Besides aiding
travel the road opens up a new and fertile territory to the markets
of the capital. Also, highways connecting the following points were
completed: Santiago and JAnico, 15% miles; San Francisco de Macoris
and Salcedo, 14 miles; Rincon and Cotui, 20 miles; Las Matas de
FarfAn and Cercado, 11 miles. These new roads, in widely different
parts of the country, add much to the entire highway system and
will greatly facilitate transportation of agricultural products to the
ports for shipment abroad.
Improvement on railroad. -The Government-owned Dominican Cen-
tral Railroad, operated from Puerto Plata to Santiago, a distance of
45 miles, was improved by the inauguration in May of a new route
6% miles in length, thereby eliminating a mountain grade over which
the railroad passes shortly after leaving Puerto Plata. The railroad
was built to use a cogwheel third-rail track, and it was so operated
until some years ago when a new class of engine was obtained that
permitted the use of the road without the cogwheel rail. To reduce ex-
pense and minimize risk involved incident to operation of freight and
passenger trains over a 7y-percent grade, in 1933 Dominican engineers
planned and undertook the building of the improvement mentioned.
It was finished in less than 2 years; was built largely from railroad
earnings, the total cost reported as less than $100,000. The new line
follows.a moderate grade and is much cheaper to operate.
SPANISH TREATY

Following the announced policy to seek a wider market for its
products shipped overseas, the Dominican Government on October
16, 1935, closed negotiations and signed a reciprocal trade treaty with
the Spanish Republic. The agreement is intended to give force and
effect by way of renewal to certain commercial clauses which formerly






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


were a part of a treaty between the two countries, signed in Madrid
in 1855, from which the Dominican Republic withdrew in 1892.
The treaty of 1935 follows the general conditions of the old one,
with certain changes and modifications, making it more applicable
to present-day conditions. The present treaty grants free entry to
certain importations of Spanish origin that have hitherto been taxed
under legislation designated as laws 854 and 949, by virtue of which
additional taxation has been levied on certain imports. Such taxes
are independent of the customs tariff in effect, administered pursuant
to the American-Dominican Convention. The rates of the tariff are
not affected by the trade treaty.
Among the articles affected by the treaty are: Onions, garlic, sar-
dines, olives, olive oil, wines, sandals, toilet soap, and certain manu-
factures of cotton goods (such as sheets, blankets, tablecloths, napkins
and handkerchiefs), knit underwear and hose, and canned vegetables.
Some of these articles have been accorded free entry, and others
benefited by reduced rates.
In return for concessions granted, the Dominican Republic is
allowed entry of certain products into Spain under the most-favored-
nation clause that may prevail under the Spanish tariff. Among the
articles of Dominican production so affected, are cacao in grain, coffee
in grain, raw sugar, honey, ordinary lumber, fine woods (such as
mahogany, satinwood, etc.) in logs or sawed, uncured hides (of cattle,
goats, etc.), coconut and palm oils, beeswax, yuca starch, divi-divi,
and other dye material, henequen, vegetable wool, cigars, and fresh
fruits.
Under the treaty, the Spanish Government concedes to Dominican
coffee an import quota of 1,000,000 kilos in 1935, and agrees to aug-
ment that amount in succeeding years if trade conditions between the
two countries warrant it. While Spain does not undertake to import
any fixed amount of Dominican leaf tobacco, the Spanish Government
promises to use its good offices with the State tobacco monopoly that
direct purchases of tobacco be made in Dominican markets.
The part of the treaty that refers to navigation gives to the vessels
of the two countries any privilege assigned to the most-favored
nation, excepting special-service agreements entered into by the
Dominican Government.
There was signed in 1924 a trade agreement between the United
States and the Dominican Republic by which either country auto-
matically receives the benefits of any trade treaty that the other
country may make, except on the part of the United States with Cuba
and territorial possessions and dependencies of the United States.
Under this treaty, goods of the United States entering the Dominican
Republic enjoy the same rates that the treaty accords those from
Spain.







14 REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS :RECEIVERSHIP

While the treaty came too late in the year to greatly affect the trend
of commerce between Spain and the Dominican Republic, there has
been noted an increase in the movement of goods between the two
countries, and there is no doubt that with the treaty in force it will
not only increase the exchange of commodities between the two
countries, but also tend strongly to promote amity and mutual
understanding between the two nations.

CENSUS

In recognition of the important part it plays in the direction of the
Government, agitation for a national census has been frequently the
topic of press comment. There had been only one census of the
country, taken in 1920. The results were not published until 1923,
when it was announced that the Republic had 894,665 inhabitants.
In the accompanying report of that period the census commission
acknowledged that the census was incomplete for several reasons-
lack of funds, of staff, of technical advice, handicap of an epidemic
of smallpox which was prevailing throughout the country, and
disturbed political conditions in some of the Provinces. Thus the
country lacked a reliable census. To meet this need the Government
ordered a census to be taken. The work of gathering the statistical
data was undertaken on different dates, when official holidays were
declared in order that many hundreds of official employees were
engaged as enumerators in the various sections of the country.
The census figures, in part, were published August 16, 1935; the
principal item was the number of inhabitants: 1,478,121. The
detailed tabulation to show the number of men, women, and chil-
dren-natives, foreigners, etc.-has not yet been published. The
population, urban and rural, according to the census returns, is as
follows:
In the country, 1,213,997.

The remainder, 1,213,997 inhabitants, live in the country districts,
that is, 82 percent of the total population. This statistical fact
demonstrates clearly that the activities of the country are largely
agricultural and the growth and price of the crops are the controlling
factors in the material welfare of the people.
As the scope of the census embraced the enumeration of houses
and livestock, as well as population, the Government now has
at its command dependable data for consideration in the matter of
administration.
RICE

The importation of rice during the past 7 years has been decreasing
annually from a high in 1929 of 27,790 tons valued at $2,115,287 to
9,456 tons with a value of $354,514 in 1935. Three main causes con-
tribute to the reduction in rice imports: The largely increased pro-
duction of the home-grown variety, the decreased purchasing power
of the people owing to the commercial depression, and the increased
duties on imported rice. In the latter respect the Government has
achieved its purpose to intensify local cultivation.
Production of native rice has increased until this year it is esti-
mated that it at least equals the amount imported. Naturally the
effects of the depression have been felt in the rice market as in all
other branches of commerce, and there has been a steady falling off
in the quantity of rice the public could purchase. Rice, a revenue
producer, always has sustained a rather heavy duty under the regular
tariff, namely $2.75 per hundred kilos; under law 190 this was in-
creased 50 cents per hundred kilos, and in 1933 by a special law a
further levy of $1.75 per hundred kilos was added, bringing the total
to $5 per hundred kilos, or 2% cents per pound. This high duty
raised the price to the ultimate consumer to such an extent that the
consumption has been limited.
The home-grown rice is favorably accepted by the public. In
quality it equals many of the imported grades. About half of the
crop produced this year has been on irrigated land. The quality of
this rice is somewhat better than that produced on rainfall land. The
price received by the grower for irrigated rice averaged about 3Y
cents a pound for the year. Nearly all of the irrigated rice is pro-
duced in the Yaque Valley, in the communities of Mao and Vil a
Demetrio Rodriguez, with San Juan de la Maguana and Barahona
also growing small crops. The rainfall rice is produced in small
quantities in widely different sections of the country. The average
price received for this rice by the grower was about 3 cents a pound.
Prospects are favorable for the increased cultivation of rice in the
Republic. With the tariff protection the staple has received, the

return of normal purchasing power among the people should make
for an increasing acreage of domestic rice.
NEW REVENUE LAWS

Enactment of two important additions to the so-called internal-
revenue system of taxing imports, figured prominently in the fiscal
program of the year. The first, designated law no. 823, published
January 30, 1935, is called the patente (license) law for importers.
Under old laws an importer paid a stated amount semiannually for a
license to import, while under this new law a percentage of the value
imported, graduated from 2 percent to 4 percent, is collectible on each
transaction. These rates alone would not be high but are felt when
taken in conjunction with the other duties and taxes that merchandise
must pay on entering the country.
The second law, no. 854, published March 13, 1935, (Official
Gazette No. 4774) is denoted as tax on articles or merchandise intro-
duced into the country for use, sale, and consumption. This law
supersedes the well known law 190, but continues in effect the same
policy of the latter of giving protection to home industry, high rates
on competitive articles and farm products. For revenue purposes
greatly increased rates apply on many lines of imports. As an-
nounced at the time, the law was prepared and enacted to enable the
Government to be in a favorable trading position in its contemplated
negotiations for reciprocal trade agreements with other countries-
high rates intended to be lowered in return for concessions granted
to Dominican products exported. The prevailing economic situation
was affected and the application of the measure brought about dislo-
cation of established trade relations. Many pending orders for mer-
chandise were canceled. The excessive rates imposed operated to
shut out certain importations and the volume of other lines was
restricted.
Taken as a whole the law has produced additional revenue although
its effect has been to decrease the amount of duties collected under
the customs tariff, the gain being altogether in the so-called internal-
revenue collections. Since the date the law became effective, March
13, 1935, to the end of the year, the amount collected, combined with
other internal revenue collected in the customhouses exceeded total
customs collections under the regular tariff by virtue of the American-
Dominican Convention.
Salt fish of all kinds was one of the articles taxed so high as to
practically prohibit its importation. At the equitable customs duty
borne in the regular tariff, dried fish hitherto had been imported in
considerable quantities, and was a dependable revenue producer.
Confronted with the fact that the revenues from this article had
ceased, the Government passed a law materially reducing the exorbi-






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


tant rate, and as a consequence the importation of this article was
resumed.
Practically all classes of merchandise were taxed under the law in
question. Cotton, woolen, and silk piece goods were for the first
time taxed in this manner. A duty of 50 percent ad valorem under
this law was levied on many manufactured articles of clothing. This
rate, taken in conjunction with the 25 percent ad valorem charged
under the regular tariff and in addition to other taxes levied by the
Government on imports, made the duty about 85 percent on the
declared value of the merchandise imported.
While some of the imperfections were noted and subsequently cor-
rected during the year, the law as a whole remained unchanged at
the close of the year 1935.
The foregoing comment is considered pertinent by reason of the
close relation the internal-revenue taxation bears to the collection of
customs duties on imported merchandise, which constitutes the
principal concern of the receivership.
BARTER
The difficulty of finding profitable markets for Dominican products
was exemplified by the resort during the year to the time-honored
practice of barter. This method of trade was forced upon Dominican
exporters by the trade regulations of countries which do not allow
money payments to be made abroad. This was particularly true of
trade with Germany, which has always been a market for Dominican
products. The year witnessed a regular exchange of exports from Santo
Domingo in payment of imports from Germany. Dominican exports
consisted of coffee, cacao, hides, dyewoods, tobacco, and honey, while
Dominican importers received in return for these shipments German
goods of corresponding value consisting of earthenware, manufactures
of iron, cement, agricultural implements, and other manufactures.
Insistence upon barter has become an established policy of the
German Government to prevent the withdrawal of funds from that
country and at the same time to keep its foreign trade. In a general
sense this has been achieved with regard to Santo Domingo. There
has been but a slight falling off in the total trade between Germany
and the Dominican Republic. The statistics indicate an actual
increase of imports from Germany, accounted for by direct purchases
on the part of Dominican buyers. The decline registered was
entirely under exports to Germany.
MISCELLANY
Japanese trade.-Analysis of the foreign trade statistics reveals the
fact that the campaign being made by Japan to capture a considerable
portion of Dominican imports, especially cotton textiles, at the
expense of the former leading suppliers, was accentuated in 1935.






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


The lower prices offered by Japanese manufacturers continue to
influence, sales, notwithstanding the fact that no market has opened
in Japan for Dominican products. Hence the comment is in order
that the Japanese policy of selling and not buying is very much in
evidence, so far as Santo Domingo is concerned.
Placer gold was first found by the Spaniards in Santo Domingo in
the year 1496, near the present site of the capital city. The discovery
caused the transfer of the colonists' settlement from the north coast of
the island and its relocation on the banks of the Ozama River.
In those early days placer gold was found in considerable quantities.
Indian labor was employed at the task of washing the gold from the
river beds, and throughout the period intervening of more than 400
years, the values in gold, the reward of the primitive mining methods,
have been a factor in the economic life of the people residing in the
mountainous sections of the country.
Increasing yields of placer gold have been recorded, and the year
1935 registered the largest amount exported, valued at $264,349.
The amount, while relatively small in the trade of the country, is
significant in connection with future mining possibilities. The gold
exports were to the United Kingdom and the United States.
New steamship service.-The New York & Porto Rico Steamship
Co. added to its service between New York and ports of the Domini-
can Republic, supplementing the Borinquen and Coamo of 11,000 tons
gross burden, each with passenger accommodation for more than 350
persons, in the regular weekly run between New York, San Juan, and
Santo Domingo, and the San Jacinto of 6,069 tons burden, plying
between New York, San Juan, Puerto Plata, and Sanchez, by placing
in service two more ships-the San Juan, 3,512 tons, 102 passengers
accommodation, which runs from New York to San Juan, to Macoris,
to Azua, and Barahona and return to San Juan, Puerto Rico; and the
Ponce, running from San Juan to Sanchez, to Puerto Plata, and back
to Puerto Rico. The itinerary of the San Jacinto has been altered to
include San Pedro de Macoris.
With these five ships all the principal ports of the Republic now
have the benefit of up-to-date passenger and freight service to and
from New York, the capital a weekly service, and the other ports once
every 3 weeks.
Communications.-Toward the close of the year improved com-
munication facilities for the transacting of business were provided:
On November 1, the Pan American Airways inaugurated a new
schedule to the West Indies. This permits of the delivery of air mail
in Santo Domingo 8 hours after its dispatch from Miami. New York-
Chicago territory is now within 24 hours of the Dominican capital.
The airplane trip from the north has been shortened by the elimination
of the former overnight stop in Port au Prince.

A radio-telephone service between this country and all points in the
United States, Canada, Mexico, and Cuba was established, making
possible direct calls from any station in those countries with the
Dominican Republic. Fitting ceremonies in which officials of the
Department of State, Washington, conversed with Government offi-
cials in Santo Domingo, marked the inauguration of this very ad-
vanced and important service. Subsequently the overseas radio-
telephone service was extended to Europe, operating through com-
panies affiliated with the American Telephone & Telegraph Co.
New wharf, air service.-In August 1935 the Pan American Airways
occupied its new landing wharf at San Pedro de Macoris, the regular
port of call for its planes en route to and from Caribbean and South
American ports. The wharf is centrally located, farther up the river,
nearer the customhouse, and more convenient for travelers. The
planes are brought directly to the landing wharf where passengers and
mail are disembarked. Inspection by immigration officials and
baggage examination by the customs on the wharf, facilitate prompt
dispatch accorded incoming travelers. A neat station building with
parking presents a very favorable aspect to arrivals in Santo Domingo.
The Dominican Chamber of Commerce of the United States.-An
auspicious occasion was made of the opening on December 11, 1935,
of the new quarters in the R. C. A. Building, Rockefeller Center,
New York City, of the Dominican Chamber of Commerce of the
United States. The chamber, established to foster friendly relations,
promote trade, and encourage travel between the two countries, is
now in position at its internationally known address, to intensify its
efforts. Diffusion by it of dependable data and statistics and the
chamber's facilities for affording contact with those interested in
Dominican trade possibilities, should lead to the desired increase of
commerce, and what is of equal value, the promotion of cordial rela-
tions and better understanding between Dominican and American
business firms.

FOREIGN TRADE
[Values are in United States curreneyj
For the year 1935 there was recorded a continuation of the improve-
ment in total value of the Dominican foreign trade, noted for the
first time in 1934, for the preceding 5 years. The gain in 1935 over








20 REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP

1934 was much less than the increase in 1934 compared with the
preceding year. The total value of the foreign trade in 1935 was
$25,277,182, exports and imports, while in 1934 $23,468,980, repre-
sented the recorded total, a difference of $1,808,202. The increase
was entirely in the value of exports. There was an actual shrinkage
of imports. The total value of exports amounted to $15,487,149 as
compared with $12,894,636 for 1934, an increase of $2,592,513, or
20 percent. As stated, imports declined, with a total value of $9,790,-
033 for 1935, compared with $10,574,344 in 1934, the difference being
$784,311, or 7 percent. With exports valued at $15,487,149 and
imports $9,790,033, the balance of trade remained safely in favor of
the country, to the extent of $5,697,116. The tables that follow

PRINCIPAL IMPORTS

For ready reference the following tables have been compiled and
show the values and origin of the 10 principal articles imported. The
value of each item and its percentage of the total imports for each of
the past 5 years is given. The supplemental tabulation under each
principal item of import is a comparison-1934 with 1935-by
countries of origin.
1. Cotton and manufactures of have always been the leading articles
of import into the Republic. For the year the group was 19 percent
of total value of imports, being somewhat less than the year before
when the volume was 23 percent of the import trade. The table
following indicates the values for the past 5 years:

Under this heading comes cotton piece goods, made up articles, and
cotton clothing of all kinds. The United States has heretofore been
the leading supplier of merchandise of this class imported into the
Republic, but the year under review witnessed a striking change as
will be noted in the table given below. Japan moved up to first place
with 51 percent of the total, while the United States came second
with 33 percent. The United Kingdom followed with 13 percent.
The reduction in cotton imports from the United States to the advan-
tage of Japan is to be accounted for by the higher price that cotton
commands in the American market, and the well known capacity of







22 REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP

Japan with a depreciated currency and cheap labor to underbid its
competitors. Japanese exporters have made consistent efforts to
meet the requirements .of. the Dominican trade. Representatives
have visited the country from time to time, have studied the needs of
the market and have manufactured, packed, and shipped their goods
in a manner to satisfy customers. Under present circumstances and
unless tariff barriers are raised, there is reason to believe that Japan
not only will retain a firm hold on this market but-that its advantage
will be widened. The table below gives the countries of origin of
cotton and its manufactures imported into the Republic and a com-
parison of 1934 with 1935:

4. Jute bags.-With a decided increase of 37 percent over the
preceding year these containers for exports advanced to fourth
place among the imports in 1935. The heavy demand for these bags
was the result of an increase in both production and exportation of
sugar during the year. The table shows weights and values imported

7. Lard, a major import, advanced from tenth place which it held
last year, to seventh place in 1935, in value, but the quantity intro-
duced was almost 1 million kilos less than in the previous year. The
values declared indicate that in 1934 the price was about 12 cents a kilo
while in 1935 it had advanced to about 25 cents a kilo; thus 2,166,124
kilos imported in 1934 had a declared value of $246,210; while in 1935
the reduced imports, 1,171,879 kilos, were valued at $283,937. In-
creased cost forced the use of lard substitutes. The table gives quan-
tities and values for the past 5 years.

The United States has heretofore been the chief supplier of lard but
this year the Netherlands are in first place. Last year there was im-
ported from the United States $236,131, from the Netherlands
$10,056. This year the positions are reversed: Netherlands $224,276,
and the United States $59,659. Explanation for the radical change,
from one year to the next, was the higher price prevailing in the
United States. The Netherlands can at the present time undersell

10. Wheat flour has always been an important article of import.
In 1928, 12,035 tons were imported, valued at $917,240. A steady
decline has been recorded from year to year until 1935, when flour
imports dropped to 4,816 tons valued at $236,401. Wheat flour now
bears import duty of $6.50 per hundred kilos. Under the regular
tariff $4.50 per 100 kilos and an additional $2 levied as internal
revenue. The Government policy of forcing greater use of flour
substitutes, grown in the country, has developed in the manner de-
sired. The table below gives the quantities by years, 1931 to 1935.

port, with a comparison for the preceding year. Special group ar-
rangements which furnish data in greater detail make up schedules
2 to 5. Recapitulation of imports giving their origin and values
forms schedule 6, while schedule 7 shows the relative importance of
each port of entry, by month; also value of importations and duties
collected. By this last schedule it will be noted that the bulk of
importations is received and dispatched at the capital, it having
become a distributing center for interior points. The result has been
a shrinkage of import trade volume at the smaller entry ports.

total value is 95 percent of the whole. The individual tables indicate
values and quantities for the past 5 years, also the percentages of
increases and decreases corresponding to the same period. The
countries of destination with percentage of each appear in compara-
tive tables, 1935 with 1934.
Among the 10 leading products of export 2 come from sugarcane-
raw sugar and molasses. These together with two other cane products
that are exported in minor quantities, cane sirup and refined sugar,
constitute 67 percent of the total value of Dominican exports.
1. Sugar, raw, the chief export of the country not only has main-
tained itself as the product of greatest value exported, but 1935
exceeded all previous years with exports approximating half a million
tons of sugar (497,171). This was by far the greatest amount ex-
ported in 1 year. In comparison the next largest quantity was
exported in 1932; 439,541 tons. The declared value of this year's
export crop was $9,452,179 or 61 percent of the total value credited
to Dominican exports.
By way of contrast reference is made to the export price of sugar
during the latest statistical period and for the year in which the price
obtained was highest for all time. In 1935 half a million tons sold for
about 9 % million dollars, while in 1920 160,000 tons were marketed for
a return of 45 million dollars. In addition to an excellent crop there
was a carry-over of 88,000 tons from the previous year, declared for
export and shipped in 1935.
The following table shows the sugar exports for the past 5 years,
also indicates percentage of each with relation to total export values.

Dominican cacao continues in demand in the United States, largely
on account of its blending qualities, hence the American market
consumes the major part of these exports. By the table below it is
to be noted that last year the United States took 71 percent against
27 percent for Germany, whereas in 1935 the United States became
practically the exclusive buyer.

5. Gold appears to have taken a permanent place among the prin-
cipal Dominican exports. In 1935 it ranked fifth with a declared
value less than for the year before. The decline in value was largely
due to the smaller quantity of gold derived from manufactured articles
(broken-up jewelry). During the recent years of the depression con-
siderable quantities of old jewelry of all kinds were sold to traders for
shipment abroad. Naturally such supply is limited, while placer
gold was mined in considerably increased quantities-old gold,
$58,725; placer gold, $264,349. In addition there were shipped during
the year United States gold coin valued at $38,692.

6. Tobacco, leaf.-Formerly one of the three leading exports of the
country, tobacco dropped back to sixth place in 1935. In a large
part the poor showing was due to the drought which prevailed during
the season in the tobacco-growing section. The table below gives
the quantity and value of tobacco and the percentage by year of the
value with relation to total exports for the past 5 years.

It will be noted by the table given below that the Netherlands was
the largest purchaser of Dominican tobacco leaf, while sales to France
were greatly under those in 1934. Spain, which last year took only
7 percent, made purchases to the extent of 23 percent. That may
be an indication of the trend of the future tobacco shipments to Spain.
It is anticipated that an increase will result from negotiations provided
for by the Spanish Dominican treaty.

7. Corn.-Perhaps no Dominican export crop was more affected by
the depression and the resultant low prices in the world's market
than corn. As will be seen by the table below the value of corn
exported in 1931 was $172,507, while the following year it fell to
$36,577, or a decrease of 78.80 percent. With the improvement in
economic conditions abroad the price of corn has risen in the United
States, and the effect has been felt in the local market. The value of
the corn exported each year has increased until it is now almost back
to the 1931 level. Corn was in ninth place in value of exports last
year and takes seventh place in 1935.

8. Starch.-There was a considerable reduction in quantity of
starch exported in 1935 compared with the previous year. The reason
for the decrease in this trade was the shortage of the yucca crop from
which the starch is manufactured, which crop was curtailed by a
continual drought during the growing season. The table below
gives the quantities and percentages of total exports for the past
5 years.

9. Cattle.-There was an increase in the number of cattle shipped
compared with year before, although the unit price received was less.
While the capital return is not commensurate with the possibilities
of the country, endowed with rich pasturage, the future should witness
a large development in cattle shipments, as Santo Domingo will con-
tinue to be the principal source of supply for the nearby islands.

Reference is invited to the complete tabulations from which the
data utilized in the foregoing remarks on the chief exports were
obtained. These are to be found in schedule 8, appendix C (Summary
of Commerce). Groups of exports by alphabetical arrangement afford
complete particulars of the entire trade, with countries of destination,
and the usual 2-year comparison (1934-35).

CARRYING TRADE

The excellent steamship service with which the .Dominican Republic
is served was improved during the year by additional steamers plying
between New York, Puerto Rican, and Dominican ports. Also the






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


regular sailings of the established French, German, and Spanish lines
were maintained, affording first-class passenger as well as freight
accommodations to and from European ports.
Arrivals.--Vessels of United States registry for the first time in
several years occupied the leading position as carriers of import cargo,
with merchandise valued at $4,338,608, or 44 percent of the value of
all imports. Norwegian vessels, which were in first place last year,
in 1935 came second, with cargoes valued at $3,092,427, or 32 percent
of the total. German ships were in third place in value of goods
carried, the same position held last year, though with a relatively
smaller cargo tonnage as compared with the American and Norwegian
carriers; with cargoes valued at $1,074,030, or 11 percent of the total,
German shipping increased its trade over 1934, Dutch and British
vessels followed with 4 percent and 3 percent, respectively. Spanish,
French, Cuban, Dominican, and Italian ships, also regularly employed
in the trade with Dominican ports, brought small cargoes. Schedule
2 (Recapitulation of imports) of the Summary of Commerce gives
the value volume of imports of 1935, and the participation by nation-
ality of the several steamship carriers in the trade.
Departures.-Again ships of British registry were in first place as
carriers of Dominican exports, with cargoes valued at $5,707,441, or
37 percent of the total. This was a decided increase over the pre-
ceding year and is accounted for by a notable increase of sugar ship-
ments. The principal purchaser of Dominican sugar is the United
Kingdom and the larger part of this chief export is carried in British
bottoms. American ships again were in second place, carrying ex-
ports valued at $2,662,961, or 17 percent. Norwegian vessels were
in third place in 1935, with 17 percent (value $2,661,008), slightly
under the showing for American carriers. German, Dutch, French,
Spanish, Italian, Cuban, and Dominican ships also were engaged in
the trade but on a smaller scale. Countries of destination and carriers
by nationality, of all exports, by value, will be found under Recapitula-
tion of exports (schedule 9). Schedules 15 and 15A show arrivals
and departures of vessels engaged in the foreign trade, by countries,

REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


increase of 106,925 tons, and the gain was registered both in import
and export cargoes. An explanation is in order with reference to the
tonnage of import cargo. There was a decline in the aggregate of
general cargo on which customs duties are levied, while material in
bulk brought in for the public works program by the Government,
with payment of customs duties exonerated, accounted for the differ-
ence in the total, compared with the preceding year.
In 1934 import cargo totaled 121,356 tons; in 1935 it was increased
to 128,758 tons. The United States, as usual, was the chief purveyor
of imports, with a total of 44,623 tons, just about the same as for the
year before. Germany was in second place with 27,295 tons. Dutch
West Indies, which was in second place in 1934, came third, with
26,524. This trade, as in former years, consisted of gasoline and
crude oil. Puerto Rico, 10,018 tons, practically the same as last
year, transshipments being included. The United Kingdom, Cuba,
British West Indies, Denmark, Spain, and the Netherlands, each
being credited as the source of merchandise destined for Santo
Domingo.
There was a sharp upturn in the export tonnage in 1935 (673,336
tons) compared with 1934 (573,813 tons). The United Kingdom,
as usual, headed the list of countries to which Dominican export
tonnage was shipped, with 347,954 tons, against 199,754 tons in 1934.
This trade was almost entirely sugar. The United States was in
second place with 165,790 tons, a considerable increase over the
preceding year, when only 113,130 tons were shipped to American
ports. France came third with 76,764 tons. Puerto Rico was in
fourth place with 30,839 tons. Other countries receiving smaller
quantities were the Netherlands, Dutch West Indies, Cuba, British
West Indies, Germany, Virgin Islands, and Mexico. The figures
above indicate the cargo tonnage on vessels cleared to ports of the
countries indicated, not always the same as the countries of final
destination. Full details of the tonnage movement for the year will
be found under schedules 15 and 15A.
CONCLUSION
A sentiment strongly intrenched in Latin America against direct
taxation places almost the entire burden of raising governmental
income on customs duties and internal-revenue taxes on some domes-
tic manufactures. This is especially the case in Santo Domingo.
During the year the property tax was repealed, a measure unpopular
with the people and difficult of enforcement. Coincident with that
repeal increases were voted in the rates applied to merchandise from
abroad. The Government depends upon import duties as its prin-
cipal source of income. To pay for imports there must be exports;
hence the problem confronting the country is to retain its foreign






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP 37

markets for which there is keen competition and increase production
so that returns from exports will be maintained, even though prices
are low. In recognition of this situation the aid extended by the
Government to agriculture is becoming more intensified each year.
A survey of year 1935 in the Dominican Republic warrants the
statement that though commerce in general was conducted under
adverse conditions, an upturn was noted, in keeping with the
improvement in the outside business world.
