ANNUAL MEETING OF THE SOCIETY, 31st January, 1911.

The Annual Meeting took place at the Borough Council Office on the 31st January, when a number of members attended. After the minutes of the last annual meeting had been confirmed, the Annual Report of the Council and the Treasurer's accounts were read, passed, and ordered to be printed in the March Journal.

The election of officers for the ensuing year then took place, when Mr. S. Percy Smith was re-elected President, and Messrs. Corkill and Newman (who had by the rules been ballotted out) were also re-elected members of the Council, and the latter re-elected Hon. Treasurer. Mr. W. D. Webster was re-elected Hon. Auditor.

The meeting then elected Mr. Edward Tregear an Hon. Member of the Society in recognition of his contributions towards Polynesian History, Traditions, and Philology, and also for his services as one of its first secretaries.

Rule No. 3 was then altered to read, “The Society shall consist of one (or more) patrons”—the words in brackets having been added to the previous form, and of which six months' notice had been given.

After the formal proceedings had terminated, the President delivered an address on “The first discovery of New Zealand by Kupe, in about the tenth century,” which was listened to by a large number of ladies and gentlemen who had been invited to attend.

The report of the Council and the accounts follow.

ANNUAL REPORT OF THE COUNCIL.
For the year ending 31st December, 1910.

This, the eighteenth annual report of the Council, may be brief, for no noticeable feature has marked the proceedings of the past year. As in previous years we have continued to accumulate documents relating to the Polynesian race, many of which have appeared in our quarterly Journal, but still more remain on hand for publication as occasion offers. The Journal has appeared punctually shortly after the expiry of each quarter, and is about the usual size; the number of pages in the year's volume amounting to 235, whilst there are more illustrations than usual. In this connection a word of praise must be given to Mr. Thos. Avery, our publisher, for the care with which the papers are printed, and the consequent trifling corrections to the proofs, by which the editorial duties are much lightened. The “History and Traditions of the Taranaki Coast,”—the longest paper the Society has printed—was - ii brought to an end in the September Journal. This will allow us to work off some of the accumulated papers on hand. This paper is now ready to issue in book form as the first volume of our Memoirs—it contains over 560 pages, with numerous illustrations and maps.

During the year four volumes of our Journal have been re-printed by Mr. K. Hiersemann of Leipzig, as they were out of print. The printing has been done by the Anastatic process, which produces a facsimile of the originals. A few numbers are now available for issue to members who may wish for them. Vol. V. will shortly have to be re-printed, as the stock is about exhausted, and enquiries for them are frequently received, more especially from places outside the Dominion.

The late Mr. Shand's papers on “Moriori History and Traditions” have also been brought to an end after running through the Journal for many years; and will shortly be issued in volume form, making the second volume of our Memoirs. The Government, recognising the value of these papers, which are the only record of the Natives of the Chatham Islands so far as their traditions, folk-lore, etc., are concerned, has, with great liberality, consented to reprint those portions of the papers which were destroyed by fire a few years ago. Mr. Shand's work is the final word on the subjects he treats of, for no one living has a knowledge of the people such as he possessed.

The Memoir fund, which was started in 1907 for the publication of papers which could not be undertaken out of the ordinary subscriptions of members, now stands at £166 4s. 8d. in cash, besides some promises outstanding. It is proposed to publish during this coming year a volume of valuable documents which throw more light on ancient Maori history than anything that has yet appeared, and which the Council have been extremely fortunate in securing. These will appear as the third volume of Memoirs.

Our Library continues to increase and now contains many works of value relating to the subjects of Ethnology, Geography, History, Archeology, Philology, etc. The Council are glad to report that it has been made more use of than hitherto since Mr. W. W. Smith undertook the duties of librarian.

With respect to the new “Maori Dictionary,” Archdeacon H. W. Williams, M.A., writes as follows:—“During the year I have received a considerable amount of new material, including a number of words from Mr. Elsdon Best and Bishop Williams, and the important list of Moriori words from the late Mr. A. Shand. Mr. Shand completed this list only a few months before his lamented death. During the winter I was fortunate in being able to confer with Bishop Williams on the meanings of a large number of obscure words and phrases. New words and unrecorded meanings continue to come to hand, but the stage has now been reached when any later additions will have to be included in an Appendix, as the copy is now being cast in its final form for the printer.”

During the year the Society has acquired by gift from Mr. Percy Grainger several phonographic “records” of Rarotongan songs.

We have to record the deaths of several members during the year, amongst whom may be mentioned: Prof. H. H. Gilioli of Florence, a well-known authority on Polynesian Ethnology; Dr. T. M. Hocken, F.L.S., one of our original members, and one who always took a deep interest in our proceedings; Mr. F. L. Mitchell of Mudgee, N.S.W., who was drowned at sea; the Rev. J. E. Newell of Samoa, who died in Germany, another of our original members and a ripe Polynesian scholar; and Mr. Alex. Shand of Chatham Islands, who was burnt to death in his house on 28th July, 1910. Besides the loss of members through death, eight were - iii struck off the roll through non-payment of subscriptions, and several new members were elected, which leaves our membership on the 31st December as follows:—

Patron 1
Honorary members 7
Corresponding members 15
Ordinary members 177
  200

These figures show an increase of nine members as compared with those for the same period last year.

In finance, we end the year with a small balance as usual, notwithstanding that we have paid for the reproduction of the first four volumes out of current revenue, which was rendered possible by an increased sale of back volumes. The Treasurer's accounts attached show the state of our finances as at 31st December, 1910.

The number of members in arrear with their subscriptions is less than last year, but still there are a good many, some of whom will have to be struck off if their subscriptions are not paid.

The next annual report will be at the end of the twentieth year of the Society's existence. It would prove of great use to students if we could then publish an index to all the papers that will have been printed in our twenty volumes of Transactions and Proceedings.
