A map of the German Marshalls is appended. August Hamburg: W. First annual report of the Jaluit Gesellschaft. The reason was the unreliable shipping connections. The Jaluit Gesellschaft owned or operated 60 trading stations during its first year of operations. Although the move was deemed desirable in general, the company lost some funds when the German government changed the currency in the Marshalls from the previously prevalent Chilean and Bolivian Dollars to the Imperial German Mark. Mentions guardedly that not enough trade goods had been sent to the trading stations.
After tax and write-offs the company recorded a loss of RMk 17, The company lost two vessels in , which were replaced by the acquisition of a vessel and a newly built vessel. The company's plantation on Ujelang was breaking even and was expected to turn substantial profits six years from hence. Since October Jaluit had joined the World Postal Union, but all mail had to be sent via Sydney or San Francisco, using sailing vessels as opportunities presented themselves. The company complained about the lack of education of the Marshallese and argued that the situation was not likely to change until the ABCFM missionaries were replaced by European missionaries.

At the time the report was written it was unclear whether the Spanish-American war and the events in the Philippines would influence the trade in the Carolines. The only major disruption at the time was the termination of the mail service to and via Manila. After tax and write-offs the company recorded a profit of RMk , The trading stations performed well in the past financial year with the exception of some of the Carolines where the disruption of the mail service was of concern as were uprisings by some of the islanders following the collapse of the Spanish authority.
The British competition is increasing, attempting to divert some of the trade to Australia. At the end of the financial year the total reserves were RMk , September Hamburg: Gente. During this year the company faced stiff competition and the number of available vessels proved insufficient. A new vessel was ordered, also to be fitted with an auxiliary engine. Now that the Carolines, Palau and the Marianas are in German hands, the Jaluit Gesellschaft anticipates an expansion into those areas. A steamship connection operated by the Norddeutscher Lloyd is already in operation.
A steamer has been purchased and shall be christened Oceana. RMk , were paid as dividends to the shareholders, RMk 20, were placed into a special write-off account and RMk 43, to the reserves.

The formation of a joint company Pacific Phosphate Co. RMk 48, were paid as ordinary dividend, and RMk 96, as super dividend to the shareholders. The copra plantations in the Marshalls were extended. In addition, the new system to advance credits to Marshallese if they plant new copra plantations has borne fruit. The new German language school in Jaluit is commented on favourably.
A contract has been signed with the German government to develop the Eastern Caroline Atolls. Mai The Jaluit Gesellschaft now own a postal steamer, four schooners with auxiliary engines as well as a normal schooner. The postal steamer route has been amended to include Saipan. The Jaluit Gesellschaft intends to send a scientific mission to the Carolines to assess the potential of some islands for tropical agriculture. The trade in weapons has now been forbidden in the Carolines previously mainly conducted by Japanese trading vessels as well as American whalers which has made the region more peaceful.
The presence of the German navy has also contributed to this. At the end of the financial year the total reserves including special reserve funds were RMk , April In: Schnee, Heinrich ed.

Ein Beitrag zur Geschichte der Jaluit Gesellschaft. A contribution to the history of the Jaluit Company]. Dissertation assessing the role of the Jaluit Gesellschaft in the formation, administration and exploitation of the German colony of the Marshalls. The thesis could draw on archival material which was subsequently destroyed during World War II. In depth discussion of the development of the Jaluit Gesellschaft and the negotiations with the German Government to run the Marshalls through a concession company rather than through direct administration.
The role of import taxes and levies on the trading competition are discussed as is the fate of the Jaluit Gesellschaft following the restructuring of the administration after The publication of the PhD was forbidden by German Foreign Affairs at the time as it was seen as endangering the collaboration between the Axis powers Germany and Japan.
Only a small section on Nauru could be published. A summary assessment of the first year of operations of the Jaluit-Gesellschaft. Comments that the trade in the Marshalls is restricted to copra, but that the golden days of the copra trade are over. The vessels of the Jaluit-Gesellschaft, chartered in Hamburg, are sent on a ten- to fifteen-months voyage.
The article summaries the nature of the bulk copra transport, mentioning that copra can be easily transported and does not easily rot or become mouldy. Occasionally the cargo needs to be mixed and aired. Some loss occurs due to cockroaches and copra beetles. The author recommends catching a fair number of these beetles en route, preserving them in alcohol and selling them as a by-product to beetle collectors in Europe.
The Jaluit Gesellschaft is mildly accused of inappropriate business acumen when the annual report of the Jaluit-Gesellschaft reports that many stores were out of stock. The British and American competitors seem to make a profit, mainly trading in German goods. That company tried to sell an old schooner to a Marshallese chief, but the sale fell through when the purchaser realised that the newly white-washed vessel was no longer worth any real money. The Imperial regulations promulgated by the Kommissar Dr.
Knappe are mentioned which stipulated that Marshallese were no longer permitted to buy any trade goods on credit and where all old credits were declared null and void. Several Marshallese were apparently uneasy about this regulation as it suggested that they, as a rule, might be deemed delinquent repayers of loans. The writer recommends that the soon to be established Deutsche-Australische Bank German Australian Bank should extend its range of business to Micronesia. Labour Relations.
