THE AMERICAN-DOMINICAN CONVENTION, 1924


REPORT OF THE THIRTIETH FISCAL PERIOD DOMINICAN
CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP
WILLIAM E. PULLIAM, GENERAL RECEIVER


OFFICE OF THE GENERAL RECEIVER,
Ciudad Trujillo, District of Santo Domingo,
Dominican Republic, March 8, 1937.
SIR: The thirtieth annual report of financial transactions of the
Dominican customs receivership for the calendar year 1936 is re-
spectfully submitted herewith. In fulfillment of that portion of the
general regulations governing, which deals with the subject, there
have been gathered the necessary data and appropriate remarks made
relating to the principal branches of the work of the year. For
convenience in the matter of reference, the tables of customs collec-
tions and disbursements contain comparative statements of the
corresponding calendar-fiscal period immediately preceding. Com-
ment necessarily is limited to a review of those topics of principal
interest, reflected from the year's work, and developments in the
country, both commercial and governmental, which bear upon the
whole Dominican situation.
A summary of commerce of the foreign trade is incorporated, com-
plete in the usual statistical tables, showing by groups and schedules
the volume of imports and exports, together with comparison of
similar trade in 1935.
As directed by the regulations, a similar report in Spanish will be
prepared for the Dominican Government-necessarily curtailed-
to contain certain suggestions and recommendations which may be
of value on behalf of improving administrative features and fiscal
measures.
COLLECTIONS

For the year 1936 there is to be recorded gross customs collections
$2,878,789.07, an increase of $39,725.72 compared with the year im-
mediately preceding ($2,839,063.35). While the percentage of gain
was only nominal, the development is considered both significant and
encouraging for it is believed to connote a definite upturn in the

z1

country's foreign trade movement. As the work of the receivership
is intertwined in the matter of collections of imposts on imported
merchandise, it is appropriate to differentiate between the returns
from the application of the customs tariff proper and those internal-
revenue laws which exact a further tax levy on many lines of mer-
chandise imported. Obviously, the operation of the latter laws has
meant a restriction of certain imports, among which are those that
have been depended upon to produce substantial revenue. There-
fore, reference is made to the combined returns, the basic difference
being that while customs duties are collected and applied strictly in
accordance with the terms of the American-Dominican Convention,
which provides, as the first obligation, the service of the Dominican
outstanding bonded indebtedness and the payment of operating
expenses before the remainder is available for transfer to the Domin-
ican Government, internal-revenue collections, which are adminis-
tered pursuant to a special agreement, go directly to the Government
for its administration, subject only to the amount necessary and
provided for to cover cost to collect.
Internal-revenue transactions are treated in a separate chapter of
this report, but it should be stated that gross internal-revenue collec-
tions in 1936 were $3,108,514.18, which by way of contrast with
similar fiscal returns in 1935, $2,816,787.41, showed an increase of
$291,726.77. While all the internal-revenue collected is not from
imports (for example, wharfage $717,484.79) yet the total from that
source added to customs-revenue collections, brings the grand total
to a figure which compares favorably with the aggregate collected by
the receivership under the convention during the period immediately
preceding the advent of economic world-wide depression.
Total import duties amounted to $2,843,619.53, continuing, as in
former years, to be the principal source of customs income, and all of
the small increase for the year was accounted for under that heading.
What is known as general cargo imports-textiles, articles of clothing,
food supplies, gasoline, building materials, fixtures, etc.-comprised
the bulk of the imports, which may be interpreted as indicative that
commerce in general has improved, and that condition was fortified
during the last half of the year by the notable and welcome increases
in the sales returns for some of the leading money crops of the country.
Reference is invited to schedules 5, 6, 7, and 8, forming a part of
appendix A. These contain the usual tabulated statements of col-
lections realized at the several ports of entry, by months, with com-
parative figures for 1935.
DISBURSEMENTS

SThe application of all funds handled by the Receivership (customs
collections) followed the long-established practice and was in strict
accordance with the provisions of the convention. The major item






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


of $1,731,020.45 represented that portion available for, and transferred
to the Government after compliance with the requirements mentioned.
To be added to that amount is the sum of $73,443.32, which otherwise
would have been transferred had not the Government requested that
it be set aside and retained from December customs collections, to
provide for 2 months' interest payments in advance, on the outstanding
bond issue of 1922-26. This action was taken, and the funds are on
hand subject to call of the Guaranty Trust Co. of New York, fiscal
agent of the Dominican Republic.
The usual monthly payments to the Government on account of its
customs collections are made at more frequent intervals, as requested,
for its greater convenience.
There was no break in the unfailing record of the Government in its
payments for account of interest charges, regularly transmitted by
the Receivership, monthly, to provide funds available for semiannual
payments by the fiscal agent. For this account the following amounts
appear among the principal disbursements of the year:
Interests payments issue of 1922-26 (Dominican 42's) --------- $440, 660. 04
Interests payments issue of 1926-26 (Dominican 40's) --------- 455, 400. 00
Total --------------------------------------------- 896, 060. 04
Nominal sinking-fund payments were made pursuant to the terms
of the readjustment, in the amount of $40,060.08, for credit of the
Dominican 42's, which was one-half of 1 percent of the total par value
outstanding, and $20,700 for credit of the Dominican 40's, or one-
fourth of 1 percent of the total par outstanding. Total of amortiza-
tion service during the year was $60,760.08.
Customs expenses, cost to operate, pursuant to the authority of the
convention, amounted to $130,721.11. Disbursements of a minor
nature make up the balance of the funds handled. Among these were
accounts of the Government for which special authority was given,
payments made by the receivership at Government request, and
payments of retirement benefits. The latter totaled only $1,377.19,
which as a Receivership item of disbursement now appears for the
first time.
Refunds of duties collected in excess become necessary where man-
ifest errors are detected as a result of audit and such payments
promptly are made in order that the importing element may be assured
that while the great concern of the receivership is to safeguard revenue,
at the same time its mission is understood to extend to the rectification
of bona-fide errors and omissions on the part of importers, or detected
in corresponding customs documents.
The general scope of customs collections and the several dispositions
made thereof are itemized in detail in appendix A, schedules 1, 3,
13, and 14.






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


COST OF OPERATION

Administration operating expenses pertaining to the customs in the
year 1936 totaled $130,721.11, a decrease of $4,703.58, compared
with 1935. Of the amount $88,634.94 was for personal services, and
$18,894.20 for purchase of equipment, office furniture, supplies, uni-
forms, printing, cost of motor transportation, etc. In addition, and
included in the aggregate shown, were other obligations, properly
chargeable to 1936 cost of collection, but which could not be deter-
mined until final audit of the year's accounts, completed in January.
The items were: $11,035.14 to the accrued liability general fund (1936-
37) and $12,156.83, pursuant to special authority for transfer to credit
of the accrued liability retirement fund, total $23,191.97. Cost to
collect, 4.54 percent of gross collections, as authorized under the con-
vention, which was equivalent to a saving of $13,218.34, had the entire
amount of the 5 percent available ($143,939.45) been utilized.
As provided, after close of transactions of 1936, the remainder of
funds on hand, amounting to $20,560.23, was paid the Government,
$5,560.23 on January 20, 1937, a larger amount $15,000, December 31.
Complete details of operation cost will be found in schedules 1, 3,
5, 13, and 14, appendix A.

OPERATION LIABILITY AND ASSETS

At the close of 1936 there remained in the 5 percent convention
account allowed for operating expense and the accrued liability fund
(1935-36) balances of $21,213.97 and $7,538.23, respectively, a total
of $28,752.20. In accordance with the general regulations governing
the administration of the receivership, this total was distributed:
$11,035.14 to accrued liability general fund (1936-37); $12,156.83 to
accrued liability retirement fund; and the remainder, $5,560.23 paid
to the Dominican Government. Details of these transactions will be
found in schedules 13 and 14, appendix A. For convenience of audit,
the accrued liability fund is divided into two accounts, one entitled
"general fund", embracing bills payable; the other "retirement fund."

EXTERNAL BONDED DEBT

Following after the portion paid to the Government from its cus-
toms revenue, the principal disposition of the year related to the for-
eign loans represented by several issues. Interest charges and sink-
ing fund requirements were met promptly as due, the payments in
monthly instalments.

Total---------------------------------------- 956, 820. 12
No bonds were purchased for retirement by the fiscal agent in 1936,
and there was no change in the par value total of Dominican customs
bonds outstanding December 31, 1936, the amount $16,292,000 re-
maining exactly the same as for that date the year before. But there
was on deposit with the fiscal agent to the credit sinking fund account
of the Dominican Republic, $365,910.06, accumulated as follows:
Pursuant to readjustment plan, 1934, $244,387.50; 1935, $60,762.48;
and 1936, $60,760.08. The employment of this fund for the purpose
intended had to await appropriate instructions to the fiscal agent,
since received.
The enviable record of the Dominican Republic of punctually and
completely meeting all interest payments as accrued on all its bond
issues negotiated, the first in the year 1908, to be served by the Re-
ceivership, remained unimpaired. Not surprising, the steady rise
during the past 24 months, in the quotations of Dominican customs
bonds in financial exchanges abroad.
An interesting recapitulation: For account of the several issues
now outstanding, since negotiation, the following payments have
been made:
Issues of 1922-26 at 5% percent:
Interest---------------------------- $7, 133, 000. 75
Sinking fund -----------------------. 1, 791, 460. 70

solidated statement following, which portrays in convenient form the
condition of the external debt of the Dominican Republic.

INTERNAL REVENUE

This branch of the receivership administration originally taken over
in September 1930, has now assumed a proportion that overshadows
the convention routine, both in the matter of collections and adminis-
trative attention. For 1931, the first calendar year of record, the
gross receipts from the several sources were $1,652,669.58. Five
years later, 1936, the total was $3,108,514.18, a comparative increase of






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


88 percent. For the first time, these returns surpassed customs
collections, which grossed $2,878,789.07 in 1936, some $5,000 less than
in 1931. An analysis of the situation reveals the fact that the prin-
cipal producer among the various laws is that referred to in general
terms as the consumption tax. At the commencement it was law 190,
receipts from which yielded $690,858. In 1935 that law was super-
seded by the present law 854, of upward trend and wider in scope than
its predecessor. Collections under it during 1936 totaled $1,454,623.69
more than double those of 1931. Remarks of a similar tenor are in
order regarding the consular fees tax: During its first year (1931) it
yielded $115,860, but in 1934 the law was amended by providing a
straight 3 percent ad valorem charge, and produced $281,692.67-a
decided increase. Likewise the cargo tax (formerly wharf tax) was
altered so that it accounted for an increase of 48 percent in 1936
compared with 1931.
Again in 1933 two new tax laws were enacted-flour tax and rice
tax-aggregate receipts from which in 1936 exceeded a quarter
million dollars. Other internal-revenue-tax laws under the adminis-
tration of the Receivership have remained unchanged. Particulars in
greater detail of the transactions involved, for the year 1936, follow:
Collections.-These reached the high mark of $3,108,514.18, a gain
of $291,726.77 or 10 percent, by way of contrast with 1935, $2,816,-
787.41. Laws 854 and 949 not only accounted for the increase but
absorbed the minor decreases in collections from other less important
laws. The increase of $310,213.35 (27 percent) from law 854 was
due to the fact that the year 1935 did not receive the benefits of the
raised rates until March of that year. Also, when first promulgated,
commerce became concerned, canceled pending orders to await
developments. That situation cleared in time so that by 1936, the
year following, business again found its level, resulting in renewed
activity. Under law 949, gasoline is taxed 5 cents a gallon, and
837,424 more gallons were imported in 1936 than in the year before.
A decrease of $51,000 from cargo tax was due to sugar shipments,
1935 having been exceptional because of exports from stored sugar.
The rice and flour taxes continued their gradual decline. Explanation:
An increase in domestic production in the case of rice and a decrease
in consumption, flour substitutes being used. Consular fees collec-
tions remained about the same.
Disbursements.-During 1936 there was paid the Government
$2,958,174.46 on account of internal-revenue collections. These
transfers are made twice weekly, each being accompanied by a
detailed settlement of all internal revenue to date, pursuant to
application of the various laws involved. Next in order of importance
was the operation expense of $101,736.96 for the year, followed by
$67,753.53 for account of refunds. Practically all of such refunds are
to cover exonerations, plus drawbacks allowed on raw materials

imported and utilized in local manufacture under law 939. This law
was signed, became effective July 4, 1935, but the first payment by
the Receivership under its operation was made on April 2, 1936.
Refunds of that nature during 1936 were slightly over $30,000.
The port launch service, operated and maintained by the receiver-
ship for account of the Government, involved an expenditure of
$8,526.81, of which amount $5,397.09 was for salaries and $3,129.72
for uniforms, repairs, equipment, supplies, and fuel.
Expense.-Operation expenses for the year totaled $101,736.96,
3.27 percent of receipts. The amount was in excess of the outlay in
1935. But as mentioned in the report for that year, experience had
demonstrated that the customs budget was bearing too large a pro-
portion of the upkeep of the. combined service. Although the
$101,736.96 expended was greater than the operation cost in 1935, it
was below the budgetary authorization of $109,300 and much under
$125,486.74, amount available from the 4 percent authorized. The
difference between the latter amount and that actually expended
represented an economy of $23,749.78 to revert to the Government.
Of the total saving $3,948.41 was utilized to provide for urgent repairs
to the warehouses at Puerto Plata and San Pedro de Macoris, and
$10,000 was paid the Government on December 31. The remainder,
$9,801.37, plus some additional accumulations, is a balance of $10,-
792.19 pending transfer. The latter will be effected as soon as it is
no longer required in the matter of current disbursements.

ANNUAL INSPECTION

The Executive order which embodies the general regulations for
the administration of the receivership very properly provides (para-
graph 9) that-
All books, records, and accounts of the receivership shall be kept available
and accessible for examination, inspection, and audit at any time, by officers
designated for that purpose, in accordance with the convention, by either the
Dominican or the United States Government. Such books, records, and accounts
shall constitute the permanent archives of the central office of the Receivership,
and shall not be removed therefrom.
Also, paragraph 12:
When deemed necessary, and at least once in each year, a personal inspection
and examination of all accounts and records of the receivership shall be made in
Santo Domingo by a representative of the Bureau of Insular Affairs, who shall
file with the Bureau a full report of his findings, for such action as may be required.
On the mission prescribed, Lt. Col. Howard Eager, United States
Army, Assistant to the Chief of the Insular Bureau, arrived at Santo
Domingo (now Ciudad Trujillo), December 7, 1936. Traveling
overland from Haiti, he visited and examined the customs offices
maintained at the border and Azua.






10 REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP
After establishing the usual contacts with the prominent Dominican
officials whose departments have to do with the receivership, the
inspecting officer, during his stay, besides his work at the capital,
visited the customs offices at the ports of Macoris, La Romana.and
Puerto Plata, where, through examination and inspection he became
familiar at close range with the routine administration, personnel,
upkeep, maintenance, etc.

RETIREMENT OF PERSONNEL
A retirement plan for the personnel of the receivership of Dominican
Customs, to benefit those employees of advanced age, having the pre-
scribed length of service, described in the annual report for 1935,
was put into operation by an agreement between the Government of
the United States and the Dominican Government, effective date
December 30, 1935. During 1936 the provision was given practical
operation. Eight employees (all Dominicans) of different grades,
were retired from active duty.
It is a source of satisfaction for the receivership that this very
necessary feature has become an integral part of its civil service regu-
lation. The outlay for account of retirement benefits, recognized as
a proper charge against the cost of operation, is insured by a reserve
created and maintained for that purpose.

RICE
In keeping with the Government's policy to protect home industry,
imported rice carries a total tax levy of $5 a hundred kilos, or 2%
cents a pound. As stated in earlier reports of this service, the effect
has been to limit rice imports. A further governmental regulation
on rice from abroad and to encourage increased domestic production,
was the enactment of law no. 1191, promulgated in November 1936.
By the terms of the law, rice can be imported only on permits issued
by the Government. The effect, as discounted, has resulted in a
further restriction of imported rice. It was anticipated that in 1936
for the first time, the production of home-grown rice would exceed the
volume of rice imported, and this would have followed, with a greater
area under cultivation, had not climatic conditions been unfavorable.
The dry-land crop, usually harvested between December and March,
was damaged by a drought which extended from November 1935
until April 1936. Since that crop, the "between seasons" crop, sown
in May and harvested August-September, has been marketed, the
yield being satisfactory, as from May until October the rainfall was
normal.
It is estimated that the home-grown product for the year exceeded
the total of rice imported. Mills for threshing and polishing rice
have increased in number during the past few years. They are






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


operating in different parts of the country, besides numerous hullers
which thresh but do not polish. Hulled rice does not present as good
appearance as the rice that has been milled. The mechanical equip-
ment in the country for threshing, cleaning, and preparing rice for
the market suffices to handle all of the local production.
The Dominican Republic is successfully meeting the economic
problem of supplying its people with a prime article of food. Rice
is grown throughout the country, many small landowners cultivating
limited parcels. The grower received an average of about $3.25 a
hundred kilos of the grain, threshed but unhulled. The lowest price
was about $2.50; high $4.50 per hundred kilos. Subsequently, the
miller or wholesaler sold the cleaned rice at an average price of $3.40
a hundred pounds; low $2.60, high $3.90. The retail price for domes-
tic rice in 1936 was from 3 to 4 cents a pound. Imported rice was
retailed from 5 to 6 cents, an average of 2 cents a pound more than
for Dominican rice, for the reason that imported rice has a better
polish, is whiter, has fewer broken grains and presents a better
appearance, all of which appeals to the ultimate consumer.

MEAT PACKING

The Government has repeatedly expressed its intention of having
the country fill its own needs of food supplies, and with that end in
view has shaped its agricultural and industrial policy. The country is
by nature endowed and equipped not only to meet its requirements,
but to help supply its less favorably situated neighbors in the Antilles.
Under this general heading, cattle raising occupies a prominent posi-
tion and the marketing of meat products is an industry of wide
possibilities.
In 1935 there was established at Ciudad Trujillo, by foreign capital,
a small meat-packing plant, the first effort of the kind to provide the
local demand of meat products. To date the plant has utilized hogs
only, and placed the output on the domestic market. So far consumed,
in the order of their value, were: Dried sausages, hams, lard, salt
pork, bacon. The hams and bacon, suitably wrapped for preserva-
tion, salted and smoked, are placed in cold storage, preserved for
months. Lard, contained in tins, presents the appearance of the
imported article. The same packing plant also deals in fresh products
which likewise can be preserved in cold storage. At first, difficulty
was encountered in obtaining sufficient offering of animals, but as the
industry developed, farmers ascertained that they had a ready cash
market for their livestock, and at present the plant can count on the
necessary supply of hogs.

COMMERCIAL TREATIES
With France.-September 4, 1936, there was entered into between
the Dominican Republic and the Republic of France, a trade treaty
giving preferential treatment to certain imports into the respective
countries originating from the other. This commercial pact is in
keeping with the Dominican Government policy to make special
trade agreements to promote and increase Dominican foreign trade.
(A similar treaty with Spain is discussed on p. 12 et seq. of the
Receivership report of 1935.)
By this treaty the Dominican Government obligates itself to grant
concessions, independent of the customs tariff, to many lines of French
,products taxable under law 854 and other laws. Among the principal
imports so affected are: French champagne, wines and liquors, per-
fumes, dentifrices, face powders, cosmetics, pharmaceutical products,
mineral and medicinal waters, canned meats, fish and vegetables,
chocolates and candy.
The agreement contains a special feature: The articles enumerated
above are confined to shipments from manufacturers mentioned by
name. This was interpreted to mean that other countries, having a
most-favored-nation clause in their treaties with the Dominican Re-
public, were not within the purview of such clause unless they fulfilled
the strict letter of the requirement. The United States was so affected,
but on March 10, 1937, the restriction against that country was re-
moved and its shipments allowed equal rights as those from France,
regardless of manufacturers' name.
In addition to the articles mentioned, embraced within the favored
group, there are other articles specifically designated, which when
exported by any country entitled to receive the most-favored-nation
treatment in its trade with the Dominican Republic, will receive the
reciprocal benefits accorded to France. Principal among the articles
so affected are: Codfish, fish in brine, olives, olive oil, surgical instru-
ments, porcelain and glassware, sandals (alpargatas), cider, and some
manufactures of cotton, such as household linen, hose, knitted under-
clothing.
On the part of the French Government it grants a concession for the
importation, annually, of 5,400,000 kilos of Dominican coffee to the
French market. And as an aid to French shipping, the Dominican
Government undertakes to adopt measures necessary to insure that
'50 percent of the coffee exported under the agreement be transported
in French carriers, and to such end, steamship companies operating
under the French flag must maintain ample service to insure that ex-
porters will have adequate tonnage available when shipments are
ready.
Also, the treaty grants the lowest customs rates accorded the most
favored nations, to a number of Dominican articles entering France,






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


among which the most important are coffee, sugar, cacao, tobacco,
hides, honey, and hardwoods.
This trade agreement has been in effect but a short while, insufficient
to permit much increase in the interchange of commerce of the two
countries. The year ensuing doubtless will demonstrate its real
benefit to the interested countries.
Duration of the agreement is for 12 months, with the understanding
that within such period there would be further negotiations between
the high contracting parties.
With Spain.-The commercial treaty negotiated by the Dominican
Republic and Spain, which became effective provisionally when signed,
October 16, 1935, proved of considerable stimulus to the trade between
the two countries. For the first 6 months of 1936, when the treaty
was in effect, imports from Spain were valued at $163,572, compared
with the corresponding period for 1935, when the value of same was
$100,007. Exports to Spain from the Republic, for the same period,
January to June 1936, were valued at $178,940, while exports for the
same period in 1935 were $136,700. The outbreak of civil war in
Spain, July 1936, disrupted the trade between the two countries.
Spanish steamers discontinued calling at Dominican ports subsequent
to August 1936.
Not having been ratified by either of the contracting countries, the
agreement operated provisionally, and was canceled by the Dominican
Government December 15, 1936, Official Gazette No. 4977, December
19, 1936.
PORT WORKS

The improvement of the port of Ciudad Trujillo (work commenced
on March 15, 1935, and fully reported in the review of that year) was
carried forward during the year 1936 with great vigor. The break-
water, to form a protected harbor beyond the mouth of the river,
is nearing completion. It is now 2,393 feet in length, most of which is
entirely completed, with stone filling and concrete capping. The
dredging operation has been continuous in the channel and inner
harbor, pumping the silt across the breakwater and adding it to the
new land that was similarly formed there in 1935. The new sandy
beach extends from the shore almost to the end of the breakwater,
triangular in shape, with a width of 480 feet where it abuts the shore.
The estimated area of the land reclaimed is 16 acres. Inside the river,
major improvements have been made. A retaining wall which con-
fined the river to a narrow channel was removed, and a modern dock
extended until its entire length at the close of the year was 3,572 feet.
In addition to the warehouse completed in 1935, another of greater
dimensions, 460 by 60 feet, of structural steel, concrete, and zinc, was
completed and has become the center for customs clearance of imports.
The deepened entrance channel and river mouth permit steamers of






14 REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP
23 feet draft to tie up at the dock alongside the customs warehouse.
With the planned deepening of the channels accomplished, ships
drawing as much as 27 feet will be enabled to enter. On August 18,
1936, the steamship Coamo of the New York & Puerto Rico Steamship
Co., drawing a maximum of about 22 feet, enjoyed the distinction of
being the first craft of its size to enter the harbor to discharge pas-
sengers and cargo. The occasion was one for celebration on the part
of Government agencies and the public, as it signalized the consum-
mation of a project to fill a long-felt want.
A jetty, built of interlocked steel sheet piling, 450 feet in length,
has been constructed at a point about 2,000 feet from the mouth of
the river, to the westward. It is meant to serve as a curtain, to break
the predominating tidal current from coming into the harbor. Notice
to Mariners, No. 2283, December 1936, Hydrographic Office, Navy
Department, Washington, indicates a minimum depth of 27 feet in
the channel from the entrance into the Ozama River. (Frontispiece:
View of the breakwater.)
INTERNATIONAL HIGHWAY
Under construction, authorized by international border settlement
between the two countries, the work was commenced July 14, 1936,
on a highway between the two Republics, from the river Artibonite
(Haiti) extending to Banica on the Dominican side. The total cost
involved for the entire highway is estimated at $450,000, each country
obligating itself to pay one-half. Likewise the upkeep and main-
tenance for the same account, each country to make suitable provision
for the outlay in its annual budget. Total length 49 kilometers.
Two steel bridges to cross the Artibonite and Libon Rivers, respec-
tively, figure in the cost, the entire task to be completed within a
period of 2 years from the commencement.
BRIDGES
The practical program of supplying the country with permanent
bridges was carried forward in a satisfactory manner during the year.
In addition to those splendid bridges, 10 in number, constructed and
dedicated to traffic in previous recent years, there were added 4, with
a combined length of 832 feet. Same remarks are in order with refer-
ence to the extension of the highway construction for vehicular
traffic. Not only was the total mileage increased but the indispensable
maintenance feature has not been overlooked. The same comment is
in order for the maintenance of the modern bridges to be encountered
in different sections of the country.
On the whole, with due regard for the limited funds available, it
is a pertinent remark that this feature of national improvements, so
necessary for the development of an agricultural country, is one of
constant concern on the part of the administration of public works.






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


EL CIBAO

The most fertile section of the country is known as "El Cibao",
practically the center of the island. The rich fertile lands are supplied
by nature with an abundance of rivers from which irrigation systems
have been completed in recent years, to aid the agriculturist in times
of drought and to make possible the success of those crops so dependent
upon water at regular intervals. These advantages have been im-
proved both by the Government and local agencies, chambers of
commerce, to provide an aid to the small growers largely dependent
upon their own efforts to produce crops which augment the volume of
exports, after meeting all home needs. It is most interesting in this
connection to dwell upon the fact that this very section was the same
that attracted the attention of Columbus during his first and second
voyages of discovery, so much so that among the first chronicles des-
patched to Spain he dwelt upon the beauty of the topography, the
fertility of the soil and the prospects he saw for making the land
respond to the necessities of the Spanish civilization implanted in the
New World. The discoverer bestowed the name La Vega Real (the
royal plain) to the immense level tract of fruitful land, set like an
emerald between the mountain ranges which stand like sentinels,
protecting and helpful; and it was this very section which produced the
first crops to supplement the scanty supplies brought from Spain for
the use of settlers. Now, after a lapse of more than 400 years, the
soil appears as fertile as of yore, and modern methods make possible
the cultivation of those principal crops-cacao, coffee, tobacco, rice,
and corn, besides many others of less importance which find at all
times a ready demand in the outside world.

LAND

Of great moment to the country's future export trade, is the sys-
tematic campaign carried forward since October 1934 by the Govern-
ment to provide small farmers, without land or means to obtain same,
suitable tracts which they in turn are required to dedicate to intensive
cultivation. The partition of land has been continuous and at the
close of 1936 there had been allocated, according to official report,
275,265 acres. This means a gradual increase of arable land under
cultivation, and the Government has estimated from lands already
apportioned, new crops to represent a value of $3,000,000 annually.
Thus not only agriculturists willing to labor in the fields are given
the necessary stimulus, but as a corollary, a brighter future for the
Dominican agriculture in general follows.
These parcels of land are in different sections of the country, and
according to the regions best adapted, crops of cacao, coffee, tobacco,
133898-37-- 2






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


beans, corn, potatoes, and vegetables, are being produced. Each
recipient of land is required to work it for a time determined by the
law which governs. In return for his effort, after the necessary
cultivation has been made, the land becomes the property of the
individual, who receives title to same from the Government for
himself and heirs.
In addition, the Government has provided irrigation, and canals
convey water to those dry sections, fertile but lacking at times the
indispensable element. These canals are found in Mao, Amina-La
Herradura, Matayaya, and Bani. Artesian wells located in Sabana
Grande de Palenque necessarily will be of inestimable aid to the
agriculturist.
There can be no doubt but that the motto of the present adminis-
tration of Dominican affairs is agriculture and its intensification, for
therein lies the source of a future prosperity. Not only have lands
been provided, but also tools and implements, as well as distribution
of seeds, tobacco plants, etc.
As has been stated on other occasions, one of the crying needs of
the country to go along with its agricultural program is the attraction
of the proper class of immigrants, men of brawn, dedicated to the
soil, whose efforts added to those of Dominicans, will produce abundant
crops to find a ready market abroad.
RAINFALL

Supplementing the constant concern and prescribed requirement
that the annual reports of the receivership convey for permanent
record all pertinent particulars and details of the financial accounta-
bility of those fiscal transactions intrusted to its administration,
service of the bonded indebtedness, and an exposition of the country's
summary of commerce, exports and imports, an endeavor also is
made to embrace within the pages other items of interest and utility
for reference, which bear upon trade development, expansion, and
fomenting of agriculture, etc.
In the belief that such timely data of a dependable nature would
be welcomed by those interested in the country and its progress, rain-
fall statistics, again are presented, as reported from different sections,
obtained through the courtesy of Government offices, sugar estates,
and other sources. These statistics indicate the rainfall in inches for
the semiannual periods, years 1935 and 1936. The statement follows:

BOUNDARY SETTLEMENT

March 9, 1936, becomes a historic date in the international rela-
tions between the Dominican Republic and its contiguous neighbor,
Haiti, each occupying a portion of the same island among the greater
Antilles, for it marks the signing at Port-au-Prince, the Haitian capital,
of the protocol which revised and gave finality to the adjustment of
the international boundary dispute, originally entered into by the
two countries in January 1929. The high contracting parties were
represented by the Presidents of the respective Republics, President
Trujillo and President Vincent, who were the signatories of the im-
portant document, which made an end to the century-old and trouble-
some problem that had beset the two countries upon more than one
occasion, and which had its origin in the seventeenth century, when
Spain and France were the possessors of the island.
Since the establishment of the Dominican Republic in 1844, there
had been much friction and at times resort to arms when Haitians
were expelled by the Dominicans from what was understood to be
Dominican territory. This was due to the nebulous situation which
obtained, owing to the absence of a clear line of demarcation, and so
understood by the two countries.






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


In January 1929 a treaty between the two Republics was arranged,
and a joint commission of Dominican and Haitian engineers proceeded
to survey and mark a boundary line between the two countries.
After work extending over a year the commission submitted its report
which satisfied neither Government. Various questions were in-
volved, not only of territory but also of population, for while the
boundary lines could be shifted on the map, the people living in the
territory affected could not be-that is, easily-as the new lines
might take in or leave out many citizens of one country or the other.
To settle these and other vexing problems relating to age-old boundary
dispute, a conference was held between President Trujillo and Presi-
dent Vincent in 1934. Again in the year following, the two Presidents
met to consider the important subject, and a quasi arrangement re-
sulted, but the final settlement and signing took place at Port-au-
Prince, in 1936 as above recorded.
Ratification of this treaty between the two Republics is a step for-
ward in Latin-American relations. Initiating negotiations directly
between the two Governments without the aid of a mediator,
shows the capacity and statesmanship of the two Presidents. The
outcome not only is a landmark in the history of the two countries
but offers a refreshing precedent for all Latin America.
The protocol and entire record was promulgated, in French and
Spanish, in Official Gazette No. 4917, June 25, 1936.

PAN-AMERICAN COLUMBUS MEMORIAL

October 12, 1936, marked the four hundred and forty-fourth anni-
versary of the discovery of America by the gallant and undaunted
Genoese Christopher Columbus, in whose memory and honor a move-
ment to erect a pan-American memorial in the form of a gigantic
light has been under way for many years and recently has gained a
decided momentum. On the date mentioned, at the tomb of Colum-
bis, in the cathedral, in the first permanent Christian settlement
established by the Spaniards in the New World, President Trujillo,
of the Dominican Republic, surrounded by a distinguished assembly
composed of the diplomatic representatives of the various nations
accredited to Santo Domingo, high officials, members of the clergy,
etc., sent out over the air in an international hook-up of the National
Broadcasting Co. of New York, a message of pan-American fraternity,
particularly addressed to the Governments and peoples of the 21
nations comprised in the Pan American Union. These Governments,
upon several occasions, at conferences celebrated in different capitals
of the Americas, have voiced their adhesion and pledged their support
to bring about the erection of this symbol of true pan-Americanism.
The last expression was at the recent conference, Buenos Aires, De-
cember 1936. The realization of the altruistic project will demon-

state to the world the feasibility of unified action on the part of the
American States, and at the same time provide a suitable and lasting
memorial in proper form to Columbus. It also will provide a utility
of real worth, an aid to aviation as well as to navigation, and thus
bring into closer contact and promote the convenience of communica-
tion between the peoples now resident in the lands Columbus gave to
the world and opened up to civilization. On the same radio program,
Secretary of State Cordell Hull spoke from Washington.
In his address President Trujillo referred to the participation of
the Dominican Republic in the preliminaries of the great Inter-
American Conference for the Maintenance of Peace, shortly thereafter
to convene at Buenos Aires, and stated (translation):
I know very well that that conference represents one of the principal concerns
of President Roosevelt, and I appreciate the deep significance which that meeting
of free nations may have for the future welfare of the New World. The Dominican
Republic is proud to be among those which will constitute that great assembly.
I, therefore, take the occasion offered by this ceremony before the tomb of Colum-
bus, to join in the fervent hope of President Roosevelt and the Presidents of the
other nations which will participate in the coming conference, that it may yield
the fruits of peace and understanding on which the peoples of America desire to
establish their ideals of prosperity, of stability and spiritual progress.

MISCELLANY

Renaming the capital.-On January 11, 1936, a law was promulgated,
published in Official Gazette No. 4867, by virtue of which the name of
the capital of the Dominican Republic was changed from Santo
Domingo to Ciudad Trujillo. The action taken was interpreted as an
expression of gratitude to President Trujillo in recognition of the
leadership he displayed in the reconstruction of the capital from the
wreck which the crushing cyclone of 5 years before left in its wake.
The statement is in order that the change was effected and the neces-
sary adjustment has followed with relatively little inconvenience.
At the present time an imposing obelisk stands at one entrance to
the George Washington Avenue. This monument was erected to
commemorate the first anniversary of the change of the name of the
city.
George Washington Avenue.-The capital, with pardonable pride,
boasts of a marine boulevard skirting the Caribbean Sea, for prom-
enade and vehicular traffic, which would be a credit to any metropolis.
Constructed during recent years, since the devastating hurricane of
1930 (so intertwined with recent history), its length extends for about
2 kilometers, and it has become the attractive rendezvous for residents
and visitors alike. Originally named by act of Congress "President
Trujillo Avenue", on a subsequent date the Chief Executive recom-
mended to the council of the District of Santo Domingo that the
name be changed to "George Washington Avenue:" This action was






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


ratified by a law of the Dominican Congress. On February 22, 1936,
an imposing ceremony solemnized the rededication. A bronze tablet
suitably located makes the act of permanent record. At the ceremony
of unveiling the tablet, the President of the Republic spoke, rendered
tribute to George Washington as the liberator of America, to which
address the American minister responded in appropriate terms of
good will and amity, and also conveyed appreciation of the signal
honor accorded the First American.
Marine phenomenon.-Cyclone-conscious since the frightful blow
of 1930, the capital was alarmed in the early forenoon of June 24,
1936, by an unheralded marine disturbance, fortunately of limited
area, which produced waves of giant proportions that swept over the
shore line and harbor improvements under construction. Taken
completely unawares, there was loss of life among those in small boats
outside, principally fishermen. Reference to the occurrence is made
because of the test it gave the breakwater, a large portion of which
was in an unfinished state. The damage sustained by the work was
negligible, and the demonstration may indicate that the structure, at
all times exposed, may be wind and wave proof when completed, to
stand as a barrier protecting the man-made harbor for the reception
of shipping.
A parallel of unusual interest-the phenomenon was a repetition,
of somewhat reduced intensity, of the marine earthquake at the same
place exactly 20 years ago (Aug. 29, 1916) when the United States
armored cruiser Memphis, originally christened Tennessee, 20,000 tons
burden, riding at anchor well offshore, literally was cast up and de-
posited on the coral ledge immediately abreast of the city shore line,
a permanent wreck. On a smaller scale a similar accident befell the
British cargo steamer Baron Ogilvy, 3,391 tons burden, engaged
loading sugar at the small port of Palenque, about 25 miles west of
the capital, at the time of the recent visitation. The sudden oncoming
of huge waves caught the ship unprepared and the craft was cast up
on its side on the beach.
Trade with Japan.-Until 1936 Japan made no purchases in the
Dominican Republic, while during recent years Japanese merchandise
was received in increasing quantities. In 1935 the importations to
Santo Domingo from Japan represented value of $1,158,630; in 1936
increased to $1,272,861. As the announced policy of the Dominican
Government is to encourage purchases, as far as practicable, from
countries which consume Dominican products, Japan has made an
effort to meet that requirement. Exports to Japan from the Do-
minican Republic, four shipments of sugar, about 12,631 tons, valued
at $245,370, figured in the year's trade. And in addition a sample
shipment of cacao. That would appear to indicate that steps are
being taken to promote the exchange of commodities between the
two countries.






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


Shrinkage at outside ports.-A development of interest has been the
tendency to shift entry of cargo from minor ports to the larger ones,
particularly that of the capital. More and better highways radiating
from Ciudad Trujillo, increased trucking transportation, coupled with
improved port and warehouse facilities which promote the conven-
ience of jobbing houses, suggest the motive for the change.
Licenses.-Motor-vehicle licenses in the Dominican Republic at the
commencement of 1936: Private automobiles, 622; public (cars for
hire), 743; official, 176; private trucks, 607; Government trucks, 64;
public busses, 21; government busses, 52.
Tourists.-The number of sightseeing tourists arriving in Santo
Domingo doubled in the past year. Heretofore these *passengers
were usually from New York, but ships from European ports carrying
passengers are interested in making the place among the ports of call.
Now that passenger ships of greater tonnage may enter the port and
come to the dock, thus promoting the convenience of passengers, the
popular West Indian cruises will include Ciudad Trujillo, where
relics of historic interest dating from the earliest Spanish colonization
are to be seen to better advantage than elsewhere.
Yesterday and today.-Anyone familiar in former times with the old
city of Santo Domingo and its environs, who returns from abroad
after an absence of only 2 years or more, will find the capital, now
called by its new name, Ciudad Trujillo, so changed and improved
that a reaction of surprise and amazement would be inevitable.

SUMMARY OF COMMERCE
A summary of commerce of the Dominican Republic, herewith
submitted, relates to the trade movement overseas, imports and ex-
ports, for the calendar year 1936, which will be the period understood
in the general discussion of the chief items and changes of importance
that are made the subject of special treatment in the narrative portion.
Tabulations are supplied which indicate the volume of the foreign
trade in both branches, with values and quantities (when available),
and state comparisons for the year 1935, of the leading articles and
groups which make up the grand total.
To provide a better understanding and a more convenient evaluation
of the commercial statistics of imports, attention is invited to a change,
by way of rearrangement of the individual schedules and group head-
ings, a departure from the plan observed in the compilation of earlier
similar commercial reports. Reference is intended to schedule 1,
appendix C.
The original preparation of the import schedules contemplated that
same would apply exclusively to merchandise subjected to the pro-
visions of the customs tariff, in which there are many free paragraphs.
But for some years other internal-revenue laws, so called, have operated







22 REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP
and placed an impost on practically all the articles which appear in
the free list of the customs tariff. It, therefore, would be misleading
to publish statistics which, at first glance, indicate that certain impor-
tations were exempt, when in reality, additional taxes other than
customs, are levied and collected before release of the identical items
from customs custody. Another feature demanded consideration
which formerly did not obtain-the Spanish-Dominican trade treaty
(though temporarily in suspense due to the civil war prevailing in
Spain). That trade agreement has meant a change in the volume of
different classes of merchandise entering the Republic, some from
Spain and the United States, wbich partake of the preferential rates.
Hence a rearrangement of the statistical schedules promotes a con-
venience by indicating individual classes for many articles well known
to the trade, formerly embraced within groups. See appendix C,
commencing on page 55.

FOREIGN TRADE
[Values are in United States currency]
A nominal decline in value of the Dominican foreign trade was
registered for the year and the decrease was in exports. The total
declared value of the trade in 1936 was $25,076,475, exports and im-
ports, against $25,277,182 in 1935, the difference being $200,707.
For imports there was an increase. Total value of exports amounted
to $15,149,908, compared with $15,487,149 for 1935, a decrease of
$337,241, or 2 percent. But, as stated, imports gained in value with
a total of $9,926,567 for 1936, compared with $9,790,033 in 1935; the
difference amounted to $136,534. With the value of exports at
$15,149,908 and imports $9,926,567, a monetary balance of trade con-
tinued as in previous year in favor of the Republic to the extent of
$5,223,341.
The following tables indicate imports and exports, countries of
origin and destination, and value percentages of shipments to, and
received from the principal countries:

CHIEF IMPORTS

The tables below have been prepared for the ready reference and
convenience of the reader-they indicate the values and the countries
of origin of the 10 principal imports. The value of each item and its
percentage of all imports in the same class for each of the 5 years
preceding is stated. Supplemental tables of distribution under each
principal item of import afford a comparison of 1935 with 1936 by
country of origin.
1. Cotton and manufactures of.-The wide range of these goods con-
tinues same in first place of imports. For the year, this merchandise
represented 19 percent of the total value of all imports, being equal
in percentage to similar imports of 1935, with a slight gain in value
over the year preceding. The following table indicates the values for
the past 5 years:

Under this group are cotton fabrics in the piece, various articles
manufactured of cotton, and cotton clothing of all kinds. The United
States which formerly led all other countries as a supplier of this
merchandise imported into the Republic, yielded in 1936 to a far
greater change than it did in the year 1935, as is shown in the table
below. Again Japan led with 54 percent of the entire imports, with
the United States in second place, having dropped back 2 percent in
favor of Japan, and supplied only 31 percent of the whole. This
decrease in cotton manufactures from the United States can be
accounted for by the higher price that cotton commands in American
markets and the well-known aggressiveness of the Japanese aided by
a depreciated currency and operating with very cheap labor. Even
though some of these cotton articles may be inferior in quality to
those manufactured in other countries, their cheapness at once appeals
to consumers with a very limited purchasing power. The Japanese
exporters and their commercial representatives make constant effort
to please the purchasers and meet the requirements of the Dominican
trade. Alert Japanese, thoroughly equipped, veritable advance
agents of the oriental peaceful penetration in Latin American marts,
continually visit the country; they have ascertained the kind and
quality of merchandise desired and same is manufactured to conform,

porters who in turn please their customers. In the absence of change
in the schedule of taxes, which would give more favorable opportunity
to the countries which purchase Dominican exports, it is believed
that Japan will obtain a yet firmer hold for this class of merchandise
in the Dominican trade. Japan bought Dominican exports in 1936
to the extent of 2 percent of the total. The table below gives the
countries of origin of cotton and its manufactures imported into the
Republic and a comparison of 1935 with 1936:

2. Jute bags.-The relative position of these shifted from fourth to
second place among the imports during the year, with an increase
over 1935 of 27 percent. Almost the exclusive use is as containers
for exports, sugar, cacao, and coffee. As the sugar and coffee pro-
duction increased and an advance in the price of cacao was recorded,
the combination was responsible for the larger quantity brought in.

cal and pharmaceutical products, with 49 percent of the total, an in-
crease of 5 percent over 1935. France and Germany followed with
13 and 10 percent, respectively, of the total.

However, the importance of these manufactures from the United
States declined from 79 percent in 1935 to 65 percent in the year
under review. The come-back of Germany in Latin American trade
is reflected in its increase at the expense of former suppliers, with 23
percent of the total. A large amount of the iron and steel used in the
construction of the new port works at the capital came from Germany.

8. Gasoline.-This product has recovered its place among the 10
principal imports. The increase in the use of automobiles and trucks
as a means of transportation of passengers and freight is responsible
for the development. An interurban service extends throughout the
Republic. Gasoline now usually is received in tank steamers, whereas
formerly it was imported in 50-gallon drums and 5-gallon tins. The

While many classes of merchandise enter into the import trade,
the 10 specific groups featured in the foregoing remarks account for
56 percent of the total. In order of importance, by value, other
imports were: Silk and manufactures of; crude oil for fuel; oils for
table use; oil for lighting; agricultural machinery; hides; tires and
inner tubes for motor vehicles; lard; motor trucks; cement; liquor
and beverages; paint and pigments; fish, salted or dried; copper and
alloys; and lubricating oils.
A complete detailed schedule which embraces all imports will be
found alphabetically arranged by groups, in schedule 1, appendix C
of this report, with comparisons for the preceding year. Special
group arrangements furnishing data in greater detail make up schedules
2 to 4. Recapitulation of imports, giving their origin and values, forms
schedule 5; the relative importance of each port of entry, by month,
schedule 6, also value of importations and duties collected. By this
last schedule it is to be noted that the bulk of imports is at the
capital, it having become a jobbing center for interior points. This
restates a situation reported upon previous occasions-the growing
importance of the capital, with corresponding declines at the outside
ports.
CHIEF EXPORTS

A list of the 10 principal exports follows, with a brief introductory
to each. Exports from the Dominican Republic are limited in number
and, excepting gold, consist of agricultural products and manufactures
thereof, such as sugar, starch, etc. Of national manufactures only
small quantities go abroad, the reason being tariff barriers. The
Republic manufactures many articles for the home market to take
the place of imported articles. Among the former are cigars, ciga-
rettes, butter, cheese, and to a large extent shoes, which go far in
supplying the country's needs.
Among the 10 leading articles exported in the year, there were 3 of
cane products: Raw sugar, molasses, and sirup; these with one other
cane product-refined sugar-make up 64 percent of the declared
value of all Dominican exports. The total value of cane products
exported was $9,670,871. Following each caption, for the articles
mentioned, is a table showing the quantity in kilos, the value, and the

percentage of increase or decrease for the past 5 years. Also there
is included a table showing the values corresponding for the exports
to the different countries, with percentage compared with the previous
year. As far as practicable these tabulations indicate the final des-
tination of the exports, but it is not feasible for these statistics to
reveal with reasonable certainty final disposition of cargoes which
are loaded and manifested to one port, and on arrival there trans-
shipped and manifested to a port of another country. A notable
instance of this is'sugar, which, in large quantities, is manifested for
Queenstown, Ireland, while it is generally known that these cargoes
are destined for transshipment to other ports, the particulars of
which are not a part of the shipping documents at the time of clearance
of the carrier.
1. Sugar, raw.-The sugar crop for export in 1936 was normal,
with exports under the previous crop. That export showing was en-
larged because it included sugar held over from the previous year.
While these exports were less in tonnage, there was a betterment in
price received. Sugar remains the leading Dominican export, and in
1936, 433,023 tons were shipped, valued at $8,509,035, or 56 percent
of the total Dominican exported values. The price of sugar was low
throughout the entire year, because forced to sell in a restricted
market. The table below shows the amount of sugar and its value,
with relative percentage of all exports, for the past 5 years:

The following table indicates the value of sugar exported to dif-
ferent countries and their relative standing as buyers. The country
of destination is that declared on the manifests of ships clearing for
ports in the countries named. Exports manifested for the United
Kingdom often go in bond, later are transshipped to Belgium and to
other European countries. As will be noted, the United Kngdom again
was the chief purchaser, France second, and the United States third.
Other countries received small amounts:

2. Coffee occupied second place among the exports, supplanting
cacao which has usually enjoyed that distinction. Coffee production
registered a tremendous increase, 83 percent in volume and 60 percent
in value compared with the preceding year. Extension of suitable
acreage in coffee cultivation has been much in evidence in the Re-
public in these past few years, hence the greater yield. The staple
is destined to remain among the main exports. The table below

3. Cacao exchanged place with coffee by reason of a 24 percent

The world's largest consumer of chocolate, the United States, was
the principal purchaser of Dominican cacao, in fact, almost the entire
crop-98 percent of the total. Dominican cacao known as "Sanchez"
in the New York market, while not considered the highest grade, is
always in demand and is marketed to advantage. The quality has
improved considerably during the past few years, due to greater care
and more attention now given to grading, drying, and sacking for
export:

5. Gold has an established place among the exports with a total
declared value of $378,592 in 1936. Placer gold, which is systemati-
cally mined, accounted for $311,549; the balance consisted of old gold
recovered from jewelry. In addition, a small amount of gold coin
($7,705) was exported during the year (see schedule 19). Primitive
methods obtain for working gold, and that shipped out of the Republic
was hand-worked. Individuals wade into the streams, carrying pans,
shovel up the sand and wash it. A creditable showing that so much
gold is recovered under such conditions. The value of gold exports
during the past 5 years is indicated in the table below:

the operation of a new law promulgated in August 1936, known as
Ley 1129, which exempts from port duties all Dominican corn exported:

As will be seen by the following table, Puerto Rico continued to be
the principal purchaser of Dominican corn but there were also large
shipments to the United States. The entrance of Dominican corn
into the American market was due to the high price prevailing. Corn
is a typical Dominican crop that can be produced in almost unlimited
quantities, depending, of course, on the fertility of the soil and the
area under cultivation, because every farmer, regardless of the size of
his ranch, produces some corn. If the price remains at a satisfactory
level, the value of this crop undoubtedly will make corn one of the
most important products of the Dominican Republic:

By the following table it will be seen that France was the largest
purchaser of Dominican leaf tobacco, while sales to the Netherlands,
which was first on the list of buyers in 1935, declined sharply. Spain,
which last year made purchases to the extent of 23 percent of the total,
in 1936 purchased tobacco valued at but $10,000. That change is to
be attributed to the disturbed condition in that country:

The United States was the sole purchaser of this product, the
demand for which is for the manufacture of candy and chocolates.
A reduced customs tariff in comparison with that on other sugar-
cane products such as raw and refined sugar, favors the importation
of sirup into the United States:


10. Beeswax.-The year 1936 was the first in which this product
represented as much as 1 percent of the all-Dominican exports.
The quantity was less but the value greater than during the year
1935, an advance of 16 percent. By the following table it may be
noted that the exportation of this product has been on the increase
each year since 1932. This is attributed to the producers taking more

A complete tabulation of all exports, the minor as well as major
(the latter treated in the foregoing comment) is to be found in sched-
ule 7, appendix C, of the Summary of Commerce. Exports by
groups alphabetically arranged are shown and afford a compendium
of the entire trade, with countries of destination, and the usual 2-
year comparison, 1935-36.

CARRYING TRADE

The steamship service connecting Santo Domingo with the outside
continued as in the past to be satisfactory. There was ample offering
for all demands, freight and passengers. Competing lines, operating
steamers on the New York run, gave to importers prompt facilities
for the transport of their orders. The Gulf ports were served by
other lines. German, French, and Cuban steamship lines main-
tained first-class passenger and freight service between the Republic
and the respective countries of registry. First interruption, then
complete stoppage of sailings of the Spanish ships operating between
the Republic and Spain, were incidents of the year.
Arrivals.-Ships flying the American flag maintained the lead as
carriers of import cargoes, with merchandise valued at $4,965,719,
or one-half of the total value of imports. Carriers of Norwegian
registry were second, with cargoes valued at $2,305,671, or 23 percent.
Norwegian steamers were in demand for charter by American ex-
porters and steamship companies. German ships occupied third
place, carrying $1,000,497 worth of cargo, or 10 percent of the total
imports, on a value basis. The relative position continued as in
years 1934 and 1935. Following were Dutch and British steamers,
each transporting 5 percent of the total value of the imported cargo.
Then ships of Cuban, French, and Spanish registry, with 1 percent
each, of the total. Reference to schedule 2 (recapitulation of im-
ports) of the Summary of Commerce, is invited, for particulars of the
value volume of imports for 1936 and the nationality of the several
steamships engaged as carriers thereof.
Departures.-British bottoms led as carriers of Dominican exports,
with cargoes valued at $5,186,014, or 34 percent of the total, which
was less, by 9 percent, than the value of the cargoes carried in 1935.
On the other hand, ships of the United States made a gain, and were






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


in second place as carriers of Dominican exports, with cargoes valued
at $3,365,943, or 22 percent of the whole. The commanding lead
maintained by ships of British registry as carriers of Dominican
exports, naturally is due to the fact that the United Kingdom is the
principal purchaser of Dominican raw sugar, the one big tonnage
crop of the country. Norwegian vessels were in third place in 1936,
with cargoes valued at $1,801,487, or 12 percent of the total, a show-
ing under that achieved in 1935. Next came ships of German regis-
try, with cargoes valued at $1,447,257, or 10 percent, a small gain
over 1935. Dutch, French, Spanish, Cuban, and Dominican ships
also were engaged in the transport of exports, but the percentage
carried was small. Italian ships dropped out of the Dominican
trade, in which in former years they participated. Ships of Spanish
registry carried only 1 percent of the total exports. The vessels
plying between Spain and ports of the Antilles ceased to call at
Dominican ports after the month of July.
Transportation by air of passengers and express made a very
satisfactory record in the trade of the Dominican Republic during
1936. Planes operated by the Pan American Airways carried export
cargoes (express) valued at $238,053, or 2 percent of the total exports.
A large percentage of the gold mined in the country was exported by
convenient airway express, and accounts for the high value of cargoes
credited to air transports. Express matter imported by air amounted
to only $9,294.
Countries of destination and carriers by nationality, of all exports,
by value, are shown under recapitulation of exports (schedule 8).
Schedules 14 and 14A give arrivals and departures of vessels engaged
in the foreign trade, by countries, and schedules 15 and 15A show
cargo movement, entrances, and clearances by ports.

1935--------------------------------673, 336 128, 768 802,094

As seen above, the combined trade tonnage, imports, and exports,
was 766,874 tons, compared with 802,094 tons for 1935, or a decline
of 35,220 tons. The falling off was in the export cargoes; explana-
tion-less sugar. Import cargoes increased by 2,485 tons, to 131,243
tons in the year 1936, against 1935 import cargoes totaling 128,758
tons. The United States again was the principal supplier of imports,
with a total of 43,692 tons, about the same tonnage as in 1935. The
Dutch West Indies, which was in third place last year, took second
place this year with 28,182 tons. The bulk of this trade, as in former
years, consisted of gasoline and crude oil. Germany was in third






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


place with 21,132 tons. Puerto Rico, with 7,070 tons, was about
3,000 tons less than in 1935 (transshipments are included). Belgium
was in fourth place with 8,114 tons. The United Kingdom, British
West Indies, Cuba, Denmark, Spain, and the Netherlands, in the order
named, participated in supplying merchandise destined for the
Dominican Republic.
For 1936 a small decline is recorded in the tonnage of Dominican
exports, with a total of 635,631 tons, compared with 673,336 tons in
1935, a difference of 37,705 tons. The United Kingdom again was
first among countries to which Dominican exports were shipped,
credited with 252,908 tons, compared with 347,954 tons for preceding
year; this tonnage was almost entirely sugar. A number of cargoes
of sugar manifested to ports in England and Ireland "for orders", which
means transshipment with final destination western Europe. But
documentary evidence of such subsequent disposal is not available
at time of compilation of these statistics. The United States was in
second place as a consumer of Dominican exports, with 201,090 tons,
compared with 165,790 tons for 1935, a decided increase over the
former period. France was third again in the matter of receipt of
exports, with 36,913 tons, only about one-half the quantity of the
previous year. Puerto Rico came next with 28,247 tons, which
exceeded the combined tonnage taken by Germany, Holland, Belgium,
Spain, Cuba, and the British West Indies. The participation of the
Virgin Islands-9,435 tons. As stated from time to time in these
summaries, to avoid misunderstanding, cargoes are cleared to countries
not always the countries of final destination. Full details of the
tonnage movement for the year will be found under schedules 14
and 14A.
CONCLUSION

The Receivership, always interested and called upon outside of its
administrative sphere, for cooperation, feels it is pertinent to remark
in reviewing the year just passed, that an advancement has been made
in agriculture, in commerce, and in public improvements generally,
all of which was favorable from the customs standpoint and beneficial
to the entire economic situation in the Dominican Republic.
The consistent and intelligent program of the Government has been
maintained and carried forward. Appreciating the obvious, that the
soil is the source of all wealth, encouragement has been given the
small grower by making available and placing at his disposal, parcels
of arable land well adapted for the growing and harvesting of those
crops which require no expensive outlay-the result of manual labor.
This gesture of helpfulness means larger agricultural returns, especially
for those staples well known in the world markets-cacao, coffee,
tobacco, and corn-which Santo Domingo, with its fertile soil, agree-
able climate and favorable geographical position in relation to outside






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


American markets, and those of the neighboring Antilles, can supply
to sections less fortunately situated.
Santo Domingo is destined to become a granary from which may
be met certain needs from abroad. In addition to the crops men-
tioned, to which, of course, can be added the major industry-sugar-
cane-there is the raising of cattle, susceptible of a development
limited only by the outside demand, for the country at all times,
without great effort, has had an abundance of meat products, with no
market for the surplus.
Exports have increased and doubtless will continue to expand. This
tends to a larger trade in general, because a strengthened purchasing
power in the hands of the people will mean increase in importation of
goods and wares not manufactured in the country.
Stress is being laid by the Government upon the necessity of
economic independence and, as far as practicable, those crops that
can be produced in abundance within the confines of the Republic
to meet the greater consumption needs, are to be intensified, thus to
obviate the purchasing of the similar food supplies from abroad. The
development of this campaign, particularly in the matter of rice,
points the way for an equal success in other directions. On the
financial side, fiscal returns are not exceeded by budget requirements.
Public improvements heretofore only considered feasible with outside
.aid (foreign loans) are being brought about with current income-the
remainder, after complete service of the country's external indebted-
ness, has been faithfully rendered.
.Respectfully submitted.

General Receiver.
