ANNUAL MEETING OF THE SOCIETY, FOR THE YEAR ENDING 31ST DECEMBER, 1914.

THE Annual Meeting took place on the 3rd March, 1915, when several members attended, the President in the chair. The Minutes of the last Annual Meeting were read and confirmed, as also the Report of the Council for the year ending 31st December, 1914, which, together with the Annual Accounts were ordered to be printed in the next ‘Journal.’

Mr. S. Percy Smith was elected President for the ensuing year, and in accordance with the rules two members of the Council were balloted out, viz.: Messrs. Corkill and Fraser, who, being eligible, were re-elected. The vacancy in the Council due to the death of Mr. Parker was filled by the election of Mr. F. C. Tribe to that office.

Mr. Wm. Churchill, B.A., was elected an Honorary Member, he having been for many years a Corresponding Member.

Sir J. G. Fraser, D.C.L., LL.D., Litt.D., was also elected an Honorary Member.

It was decided to ask His Excellency the Governor to become a patron of the Society, his two predecessors in the same office being already Patrons.

Mr. W. D. Webster again undertook the office of Honorary Auditor for the Society.

ANNUAL REPORT OF THE COUNCIL, FOR THE YEÀR ENDING 31ST DECEMBER, 1914

THE Council has pleasure in presenting to the Annual Meeting its Twenty-second Report, being the proceedings of the Society during the past twelve months.

We have now been in existence as a Society for twenty-three years, and have published twenty-three volumes of Transactions and Proceedings, besides one volume of ‘Memoirs,’ and three other volumes being reprints in book form of papers originally appearing in our Quarterly Journal. The volume of ‘Memoirs,’ referred to above, is “The Lore of the Whare-wānanga,” which contains valuable matter, parts of which have never been hinted at in previous publications and which have met with high approval from some of the most learned Ethnologists of England. A second part of this same work, dealing with the history of the East Coast tribes, is now going through our ‘Journal’ and will appear in book form on its completion. The Society is to be congratulated on the acquisition of the original matter contained in these two volumes, for, although known for some years past to be in existence, objections have always been raised heretofore, by the owner of it, to its publication. It is now on permanent record for future reference.

- ii

The papers now publishing in the ‘Journal,’ by Mr. T. W. Downes, whilst partially overlapping the work referred to above, are practically a continuation of it down to the present time. The East Coast Ngati-Kahu-ngunu tribe, and the West Coast Taranaki-Ati-awa tribes will thus have a fairly complete history from very ancient times down to the present day. Mr. Elsdon Best's History of the Urewera (or Tuhoe) tribes, which is also going through our ‘Journal,’ and the slighter sketch of the Northern Ngati-Whatua tribe, together with Mr. Downes' sketch of the Whanganui tribes, form together a considerable mass of matter that will be of inestimatable value to the future historian of New Zealand prior to the European occupation, and cover a large part of the North Island. Whether we shall ever get the histories of the other parts—beyond the scattered notices now on record—is very doubtful.

Of other parts of Polynesia outside New Zealand, the last year's ‘Journal’ contains nothing but some Philological notes on the language of Ulawa, one of the Solomon Islands, by the Rev. W. G. Ivens. In this part of the area covered by our field of operations, we lack translations of the papers in hand. Particularly is it the case with the Marquesan Island traditions, which M. Lagard, of Tahiti, very kindly undertook to attempt the translation of; but he finds great difficulty in doing so, and has been obliged to refer to people living in the group itself to help him. As has been before pointed out our volume of MSS. is believed to be the only one in existence, and it is quite out of the question that the same information could be again collected.

We have also a series of Rarotongan MSS. not yet translated, but hope that Mr. Savage, of that Island, who has so often rendered help before, may find the time to assist in this matter again. These papers are of considerable importance in connection with various Polynesian migrations.

We may fairly claim that our Society has been the means of rescuing from oblivion a large amount of matter that but for our efforts would never have been made known to the world. The history of the Polynesian people has made great strides since we took up the work twenty-three years ago, and is in fact becoming a consistent whole; and the beliefs, manners and customs, migrations, illustrations of their various dialects, and their philosophy are becoming clearer from year to year. The student of the future will find in our records matter that carefully studied will in the end lead to the final solution of the origin of the Polynesian people, besides illustrating the life-history of a branch of the human race that seventy years ago was in the “Stone Age.”

Whilst we believe that everything we have published has a bearing on the questions the Society was founded to solve, no doubt many of the articles appearing in the ‘Journal’ are not of much interest to the general reader. But to those who are really students of the Polynesian race, each subject finds in some one or other of our members a responsive chord.

As time goes on, it is only natural that accumulation of fresh matter tends to modify the views held by our members in the early stages of our existence, nor is this peculiar to our Society, This may be illustrated by the fact that for many years it was supposed that the Maori was the only race that had inhabited New Zealand. It gradually dawned upon us from the study of matter contributed to our ‘Journal’ that these islands were inhabited before the advent of the six well-known canoes in the fourteenth century, and now this has become a certainty, so far as anything of the kind can be certain; and we can now believe that a people who were not pure Polynesians, nor pure Melanesians, but having a strain of both races in them, were the earliest occupants of New Zealand. Beyond the fact that this people came from the Western Pacific (unlike the Maoris, who came from the - iii East), we do not as yet know their origin, nor the date of their arrival, though we do know that it was after the discovery of the islands by Kupe, somewhere about the tenth century.

Outside the publications of the Society there have been a few notable contributions to the history of the race which gives its name to our Society, within the last few years. Among them may be mentioned our Hon. Member Mr. Wm. Churchill's three works, dealing with the Philology, and in a subsiduary way, with the wanderings of the people. Needless to say Mr. Churchill's researches lead him in the same direction as other investigations into the origin of the race in the far west, though he does not commit himself to tracing the people further west than Indonesia. Our Member Dr. Newman, in his book “Who are the Maoris?” has gathered together a vast amount of information at first hand, dealing with the race, from Indian and other sources, corroborative of Polynesian Traditions. Whilst we cannot agree with all the author's statements and conclusions, his work must remain a permanent source of information on many of the subjects he deals with.

Of other works, outside our own publications, we look forward to seeing at some time, two contributions that will—we understand—deal exclusively with Polynesian matters, and which have, we suggest, been too long delayed. We refer to Mr. Churchill's “Samoa o le vavau” (Ancient Samoa), introductory to which are the three works referred to in the last paragraph; and to Miss Teuira Henry's work on “Tahiti and its Traditions.” Until these works appear Polynesian History cannot be dealt with comprehensively from the traditional point of view. We shall never, we fear, possess a good work on the Tonga traditions; the man who could have executed it has, alas! passed on to the majority. We refer to the Rev. J. E. Moultan, for so many years resident in Tonga, and one of its—if not the greatest—most distinguished linguists. Outside our own publications, past and to come, and the works alluded to above, we shall not, it is to be feared, see any very extensive works on the Polynesians written by those who know the people and the language thoroughly.

Previous reports have alluded to the new Maori Dictionary, a work which was undertaken by the Ven. Archdeacon H. W. Williams. We now learn from him that he has made arrangements to devote a greater portion of his busy life to the completion of this great undertaking, so that possibly next year may see the work in print. It is well that it should be out, for some people are saying “this appears to be another case of the Colenso Dictionary,” quite misunderstanding the enormous amount of work involved. It was in December, 1903, the Hon. The Premier authorised the incidental expenditure connected with the Dictionary. The Archdeacon has had the use of all—or most—of the collections of Maori words made by scholars in New Zealand, so the work when issued should be comprehensive. We quite recently learned from Honolulu, that a new and more comprehensive edition of Andrews' “Hawaiian Dictionary” is to be taken in hand by a first-rate Hawaiian Scholar.

Our library continues to increase by the addition of books, etc., obtained by exchange with other Societies, and occasional gifts, for we are not in a position financially to purchase works, though there are many appearing each year that should find a place on our shelves. Some of our exchange Societies are most liberal, and we gladly acknowledge that we receive from them more than we give. But our library is not used by members to the extent it might be. Not only members of the Society but others, under proper introduction and conditions, are welcomed as borrowers, and our Hon. Secretary, Mr. W. W. Smith attends each Monday evening to issue books etc., to any one wishing to borrow. Thanks to the - iv civility of the governing body of the Technical College we have free quarters for our library, in a fire-proof building, but the time is fast approaching when the wall-space will be exhausted and new quarters will have to be found.

Our membership does not increase as it should do; as a matter of fact, through deaths and resignations, we number less on the 31st December last than for the past few years. At that date our membership was as follows:—

Patrons 2
Honorary Members 9
Corresponding Members 14
Contributing Members 155
Total 180

We lost seven members through death, amongst whom was one of our original members and founders—Mr. J. R. Blair, of Wellington—and Messrs. G. H. Davies, C. W. Govett, F. Y. Lethbridge, Taylor White, and Dr. W. M. Woodworth. Some members have been struck off the roll for non-payment of their subscriptions. The strength of the Society might be increased if our members would interest themselves in inducing their friends to join. The thanks of the Society are due to those gentlemen (very few in number) who have induced others to join.

In the matter of finances, the Balance Sheet of our Treasurer, shows a credit of £8 3s. 11d., against which there is a liability of some £30 (since paid off). The war has certainly affected our finances in the matter of resignations, for that has been the reason assigned for some of them; and a German order for over £50 worth of our publications was returned on our hands, as they could not be delivered.

In concluding this report the Council tenders its thanks to those members who have contributed papers to the ‘Journal,’ many of which are of great value.
