ANNUAL MEETING OF THE SOCIETY, For the Year Ending 31st December, 1916.
A Meeting was called for the 12th February, but as there was not a quorum present, it was decided that the present officers continue in their different positions, leaving it to any sufficient number of members to object to the proceedings.
The Annual Report and Accounts were read and ordered to be printed as usual, and a vote of thanks was carried to Mr. W. D. Webster for auditing the accounts, and to Mr. W. H. Skinner for preparing the Index to Vol. XXV. of our ‘Journal.’
The following members were elected:—
- As Hon. Member—Chas. M. Woodford, Esq., C.M.G., The Grinstead, Partridge Green, Sussex, England.
- As Hon. Member—Sydney H. Ray, Esq., transferred from Corresponding Member.
- As Corresponding Member—H. D. Skinner, B.A., D.C.M., “M” Warehouse, Southampton, England.
- As Ordinary Member—Francis James Green, Honolulu, Hawaiian Islands.
- As Ordinary Member—Te Anga, Hone Tukere, N.L. Court Office, Whanganui.
ANNUAL REPORT OF THE COUNCIL, For the Year Ending 31st December, 1916
This, the Twenty-fourth Annual Report to the Members of the Society, will be brief, for there is little to record during the past twelve months.
For the past two years we have had to reduce the size of our quarterly Journal owing to the falling off in our membership principally, owing to the war raging on the other side of the world. But with the return of peace we hope to keep up to our usual number of sixty-four pages. Matter accumulates faster than we can print it, and naturally the non-appearance of their papers is a disappointment to the authors who so generously supply us with the results of their researches. Among the papers we hope to see in progress during the ensuing year are the series of Rarotonga documents secured in that island many years ago, and the translation of which is in a forward state. Side by side with these are other papers by Mr. S. Savage from the same locality, a start in which has been made. It is possible these two series will to a certain extent overlap, but that is perhaps not a disadvantage inasmuch as being derived from different sources, both authentic, they will serve to corroborate one another, while detail lacking in the one may be supplied by the other.
The valuable matter collected by Mr. H. Beattie from the extreme south of New Zealand, will be continued to the end; and it is hoped that Mr. Elsdon - ii Best's collection dealing with the history of Port Nicholson and the southern part of the North Island may be commenced. It seems almost hopeless to anticipate that any one sufficiently acquainted with the language in which the Marquesan Legends we possess are expressed will be found equal to a translation of them. As before remarked, these are probably the only existing documents dealing with the history and migrations of that fast disappearing people. On the side of Philology we shall continue Mr. Sydney H. Ray's studies of the Polynesian elements in the languages spoken in the islands lying along the eastern verge of the Melanesian Islands of the Solomon and New Hebridies Group, and look forward to the result as tending to throw great light on the question that is now exercising Ethnologists, as to whether the ancestors of these people formed part of the original migrations into the Pacific, or whether they form a ‘back-wash’ from the East.
A work by our Hon. Member, W. Churchill, has lately dealt with this question in his last Philological work entitled ‘Sissano; Movements of Migrations within and through Melanesia,’ and he concurs with us in thinking that they are some of the belated offshoots of the original migrations. His arguments flow not only from the language point of view, but from the consideration of some well-known customs of the people.
The year has been marked also by the issue of another work, by our member Dr. Roland B. Dixon, who, in ‘Oceanic Mythology,’ has for the first time brought into one purview practically the whole of the known Myths of the Oceanic races, including the Indonesians. This is the first attempt at anything of the kind, and great credit is due to Dr. Dixon for his industry in compiling such a work. We must look on it as a first step in the comparison of the whole life and thought of the Oceanic peoples, which, when followed along other lines, as it must be, will tend to the solution of the origins of the people. Dr. Dixon has made much use of our publications in the production of his work.
Another work which has appeared during the year should be of interest to all Polynesian scholars, viz., the originals of “Fornander's Collection of Hawaiian Antiquities and Folk-lore,” on which Fornander based his great work, “The Polynesian Race.” The originals are translated by Mr. T. G. Thrum, and the work is published by the Bernice Pauahi Bishop Museum of Honolulu. Part I. has appeared, to be followed by others. This series of traditions is valuable on account of their representing the ‘literature’ of the most northern branch of the Polynesian people, and they represent for the Hawaiian branch, what Grey's “Polynesian Mythology,” White's “Ancient History of the Maori,” Shand's “Morioris” and our own volumes of “Memoirs” do for the Southern branches. All honour to the most excellent Honolulu Museum for publishing this valuable contribution to Polynesian “Literature.”
During the year under review we have lost, through death, the following members: Mr. M. H. Gray, of Kent, England; Mr. R. Coupland Harding, of Wellington, for some years the printer of our ‘Journal’; and Bishop W. L. Williams, our President in 1895-6. Besides the above, and since the close of the year, we have lost the Hon. Dr. McNab and Mr. W. H. S. Roberts. At the close of the year the roll of Members was as follows:—
Notwithstanding a few resignations and the deaths noted above, the new members elected make the roll 13 members in excess of last year. The Council will, however, have to apply the pruning knife to some of the above members for being in arrear with their subscriptions.
It will be observed from the Treasurer's statement that we end the year with a credit of £28 9s. 0d., the liabilities are nil, for the cost of producing the December ‘Journal’ is a charge on the year 1917.
Maori Dictionary.—We learn from Archdeacon Williams that the present position of the New Maori Dictionary is as follows:—“That 128 pp. are printed off, 64 additional pages ready for printing, and probably completed ere this reaches you, which brings us to ‘Mahuranga,’ while it has been set as far as ‘Tu,’ and nearly all of that has received a second correction; that is, nearly eleven-twelfths are actually in type, and the Government Printing Office is pushing it on most energetically.”
