ANNUAL MEETING OF THE SOCIETY, For the Year Ending 31st December, 1911.

The Annual Meeting was held at the Society's Library, Technical College, New Plymouth, on the evening of January 26th, when several members were present, and the President in the chair.

After reading the minutes of the previous Annual Meeting, and the Treasurer's accounts (which will be found below), the members proceeded to the election of officers for the ensuing year, which resulted as follows:—

  • President, S. Percy Smith (re-elected)
  • Council, F. P. Corkill (re-elected) and J. B. Roy
  • Joint Secretary and Treasurer, W. W. Smith
  • Hon. Auditor, W. D. Webster

The Annual Report and Accounts follow.

ANNUAL REPORT OF THE COUNCIL, For the Year Ending 31st December, 1911.

The Council feels in presenting its nineteenth report that there is some justification for congratulating the Society on having attained its twentieth year of existence.

On the 8th of January, 1892, some twenty gentlemen gathered together under the Chairmanship of Lieut-Col. W. E. Gudgeon, C.M.G., in the Library of the New Zealand Institute, Wellington, where the names of one hundred and twelve ladies and gentlemen were read out who had expressed a wish to join, and it was then decided to form the Society on the lines of a circular which had been sent to a large number of persons likely to take an interest in Polynesian history, traditions, languages, and cognate subjects. At that meeting officers of the new Society were appointed; they were:—Patron, H.M. Liliuokalani, Queen of Hawaii; President, H. G. Seth-Smith, Esq., M.A.; Council, The Rev. W. T. Habens, B.A.; A. Carroll, Esq., M.A., M.D.; J. R. Blair, Esq.; Elsdon Best, Esq.; E. Tregear, Esq., F.R.G.S., and S. Percy Smith, Esq., F.R.G.S., the two latter holding the joint offices of Honorary Secretaries and Honorary Treasurers. Of these gentlemen, forming the first Council, two (The Rev. W. T. Habens and Dr. Carroll) have passed over to the majority, but the others are happily still on our roll of membership. At the same meeting two Honorary Members were appointed (Sir George Grey, K.C.B., and F. D. Fenton, Esq.) both of whom are dead, and two corresponding members, of whom the Rev. T. G. Hammond is still with us. Of the one hundred and twelve original members twenty-three are known to have died, - ii and many others have left, leaving only thirty-five of the founders still on the roll. To these survivors of the original roll, the thanks of the Society as at present constituted are due for their hearty support and encouragement during the past two decades.

When the Society was started in 1892, there was not wanting on the part of some people in New Zealand, the prediction that its life would be short and inglorious; it was certainly felt by some that, even if the Society struggled into life, it would at least injure the New Zealand Institute by withdrawing some of its members. Neither of these fears have been realized, for our Society is perhaps more flourishing now, after twenty years, than it has ever been, and certainly the New Zealand Institute has not been affected by our existance.

The Society may fairly claim to have added to the sum of human knowledge in so far as it has rescued from oblivion a large amount of information regarding the Polynesian Race that, but for the columns of our “Journal” would inevitably have been lost. Our publications have offered to many writers the means of placing on record many important facts that would otherwise not have seen the light, and to those writers who have gratuitously given freely of their knowledge and time to our special work, the Society cannot be too grateful. It is proposed to publish the names of the long list of Authors and their papers with the March number of this “Journal,” a list which will be of great use to students, and form, as it were, a standpoint from which we may look back and see in concise form what has already been accomplished; and from which, let us hope, encouragement towards future efforts may be derived. For this should clearly be understood; that the work of the Society is furnishing the groundwork on which many will yet build structures the magnitude and far reaching extent of which is as yet undreamed of. We should be satisfied if we can lay the foundation of these structures well and truly. In this connection we may perhaps predict that the Maori manuscripts which have been occupying our attention for some eighteen months, in their transcription and translation, will cause somewhat of a revolution in the conception of the ideas held by a race that within so short a time ago was in the Stone age.

To turn, however. to the brief history of the transactions of the past year. They have not been marked by any very prominent feature; the “Journal” has appeared regularly each quarter, and contains a considerable amount of original matter, mostly contributed from Eastern Polynesian sources. Quite a number of articles from the collection of the late Rev. Dr. W. Wyatt Gill's papers have appeared, both in the original and in translation. We have also printed several other articles on Tahitian and Paumotuan traditions. To those who do not bring a student's knowledge to the reading of these papers, they may appear childish and uninteresting. But when the time arrives for showing the bearing these simple tales have on the history of mankind generally, it will probably cause considerable surprise, as no doubt will the statement, that they contain many of the same incidents to be found also in Celtic literature. This is not the place to indicate how these remarkable coincidences arose; suffice it to say that to him who can read between the lines, they afford the material that in the hands of competent scholars, will throw light on some of the great Ethnic movements that are as yet seen but darkly.

The late Mr. Shand's Moriori papers as originally published in our “Journal” have, thanks to the liberality of the Government, been partly reprinted, and are now available in volume form. They are the sole record of that almost defunct branch of the Polynesian race, the preservation of whose records would alone have justified the existence of the Society. To understand their importance one must again read between the lines.

It is hoped that the third volume of our Memoirs may be published during the ensuing year—they will contain the Maori MSS. already alluded to. The translation is well forward. The actual cash in hand for this purpose amounts to £155, besides some outstanding promises, which will be available whenever the money is wanted.

Our Library continues to increase, and under Mr. W. W. Smith's care is now made considerable use of. It is to be hoped that this use may be productive of of some tangible result some day, in addition to the reading for mere amusement—it certainly will in one case.

We regret to report that Mr. R. Coupland Harding is unable any longer to prepare the Index to the Annual Volume—failing eyesight is the cause. He has undertaken this onerous work for the past sixteen years, and the thanks of the Society are due to him for his labours.

Mr. W. D. Webster has continued his services to the Society, by auditing its accounts, and to him also. the thanks of the Society are due.

On the subject of the Maori Dictionary, Archdeacon W. H. Williams says:—“I have begun the typing but have not made such progress as I had hoped. On the other hand Bishop Williams was able to spend several weeks with me during the winter when we got through some useful work in the way of collating the material on hand. It has been of the greatest value to me having the advantage of his accurate knowledge of this, and we were able to deal with about one third of the whole dictionary in the time at our disposal.” It will be remembered that Bishop Williams is the author of the last Maori Dictionary published in 1892—the fourth edition of the original dictionary.

We regret to record the death of three of our members; Aporo Te Kumeroa, one of our corresponding members; Mr. C. W. Hursthouse, one of our original members, and a good Maori scholar; and Mr. W. R. Benn, of Rotorua, a member since 1895. In addition, two members have resigned. and six have been struck off for non-payment of their subscriptions. This leaves us, as at 31st December. with the following members on the roll:—

Patron 1
Honorary Members 7
Corresponding Members 16
Contributing Members 177
Total 201

These figures show an increase of one over the figures of last year, and this means that the new members elected about equal the deaths, resignations, and those struck off. It is always with great regret that the Council takes the extreme step of striking members off, but as the defaulting members are invariably wanting in the common courtesy of replying to the Secretaries' letters, and also put them to unnecessary trouble, such members cannot expect much consideration.

Our financial position is good, though there are a few members in arrear with their subscriptions. We end the year with a balance to our credit of £28 18s. 7d., as shown by the Treasurer's balance sheet attached.
