VOL. XXXIV.—1925.

THE 32nd Annual Meeting of the Polynesian Society was held in the Hempton Library, New Plymouth, at 8 p.m. on Tuesday, 27th January, 1925, when Mr. W. H. Skinner presided over a meeting of some thirteen members, several apologies for absence being received.

Minutes of last Annual Meeting being read and confirmed, the Report and Balance-sheet were read and adopted.

On the invitation of the chairman, Mr. Crompton Smith detailed the arrangements made for carrying on the work of the Society at Wellington, and for the housing of the library.

Mr. P. J. H. White expressed his opinion that it would be in the interest of the Society to transfer its headquarters to Wellington, but he hoped that its identity would not be lost thereby.

Mr. M. Fraser, expressing disappointment that more Wellington members had not attended, said he hoped it might prove possible to have some portion of the library—especially such as might be duplicated in other institutions in Wellington—retained in New Plymouth for use of local members.

Mr. Skinner also spoke of the future work of the Society, which he firmly believed would be continued in Wellington without undue influence from outside interests. He then proposed that the headquarters of the Polynesian Society be transferred to Wellington. Seconded by Mr. Standish, the motion was carried.

On the nomination of Mr. Elsdon Best, seconded by Mr. Crompton Smith, Mr. W. H. Skinner was elected President for the year 1925 by acclamation. Mr. Crompton Smith stated that the Wellington members desired to show by this nomination their sense of the invaluable services rendered by Mr. Skinner to the Society on the death of its founder, as well as of the loyalty of the New Plymouth members.

An amendment of rules was proposed by Mr. Skinner: That the Council consist of Secretary, Treasurer and five other members; seconded by Mr. White and carried.

In accordance with a resolution carried by the Wellington members, Mr. Crompton Smith proposed that the following gentlemen be elected to the Council: Messrs. Elsdon Best, Hon. Sir Maui Pomare, J. C. Andersen, H. R. H. Balneavis, and Dr. Allan Thomson. Seconded by Mr. Skinner, and carried.

Mr. Skinner proposed Mr. M. Crompton Smith as Hon. Secretary and Mr. H. A. Huggins as Hon. Treasurer. Seconded by Mr. Fraser, and carried.

Mr. Skinner proposed a very hearty vote of thanks to the Hempton family, through Miss Hempton, for their generosity in making available the library used for the last ten years by the Society. Seconded by Mr. Crompton Smith, and carried.

Mr. Skinner proposed that the suggestions made by Dr. Gregory on behalf of the Bernice P. Bishop Museum, of Honolulu, for the co-operation of the Polynesian Society with the museum in Ethnological work throughout the Pacific be approved and that a working arrangement be entered into forthwith between the two institutions for that purpose. Seconded by Mr. Fraser, and carried.

Mr. W. H. Skinner read a letter from Mr. H. D. Skinner suggesting that a permanent memorial to the late Mr. S. Percy Smith, the founder of the Society, be erected by subscription in the Public Library, New Plymouth.

Mr. Skinner proposed that the letter be passed on to the in-coming Committee for favourable consideration. Seconded by Mr. Shaw, and carried.

Mr. White proposed that Mr. C. Waterston be authorised to operate with Mr. W. H. Skinner on the Capital Account and the Memoir Fund, in the New Plymouth Savings Bank, in place of Mr. S. Percy Smith, deceased. Seconded by Mr. Fraser, and carried.

Mr. Skinner proposed that the disposal of the book-shelves, etc., in the present library be left in the hands of himself and Mr. P. J. H. White. Carried.

Mr. P. J. H. White proposed that it be a recommendation to the Council to appoint auxiliary committees in other centres convenient to members of this Society, to whose care sections of the library be issued from time to time for reference purposes. Seconded by Mr. Stanley Shaw, and carried.

A vote of thanks was accorded to the President, Editor and Members of the retiring Council.


IN presenting the Thirty-second Annual Report, the Council offers its congratulations to Members on the Society's expansion, and the increasing interest taken in its work by individuals and institutions far afield from its headquarters. The increase in membership during the past two years has been most gratifying, no less than eighty-six new names having been added during that period, many of whom have been recruited from outside of New Zealand and the Pacific area.

On December 31st our membership and exchanges were as follows:—

Patrons 3
Honorary Members 10
Corresponding Members 13
Ordinary Members 253
Learned Societies and Institutions on Exchange List 49
Total 328
- iii

This is the largest membership so far obtained by the Society, and is an indication of an increased interest taken in its work. Seventeen members have been struck off the list for nonpayment of subscriptions. This is a drastic sweep for one year, but such action was deemed advisable in view of the change over of management to an entirely new Council. Two years grace are given in all cases to members in arrears with their subscription, and to expect the Society to extend its concession beyond that period is unreasonable and cannot be allowed.

An outstanding feature of the past year's work has been the arrangement entered into (subject to confirmation) between the Society and the Bernice P. Bishop Museum, Honolulu, for co-operation in Ethnological work throughout the Pacific. At a meeting of the Council held on the 5th September last, it was unanimously resolved that the incoming Council give favourable consideration to the proposals set out by Dr. Gregory, Director of the Bishop Museum, in his letter of 1st July, 1924, for the co-operation of the two institutions in prosecuting Ethnological research over the Pacific area, and that a working understanding be come to in this matter along the lines suggested in the following clause of Dr. Gregory's letter:—“The "Polynesian Journal to accept each year a reasonable number of short "articles indicating that they have been submitted by the Bishop "Museum, such notation being considered satisfactory evidence of "suitability to print. The Museum to take no part in editorial or "financial responsibility, but would expect to pay for ‘separates’ and "for expensive illustrations. If it were desired the Museum might "appoint an associate editor or contributing editor.”

Co-operation between the Bishop Museum and this Society along the lines indicated in this resolution must help the advancement of Ethnological research throughout the Pacific area, and is a forward movement which we regard with great interest and agreeable anticipation, and our thanks are due to Dr. Gregory for suggesting this co-ordinating of effort.

The Board of Maori Ethnological Research has continued its active interest in, and practical help to the Society, and most welcome financial assistance has been forthcoming from that body, as a glance at the balance sheet will disclose. Apart from this substantial help the Board undertook to finance the issue of Memoir, No. V., of the Society, Mr. Elsdon Best's “The Maori” in two volumes, a most valuable contribution to the literature dealing with the Maori people. The work is now on sale to Members of the Society at a very low figure. The Board have now in hand the publication of Memoir No. VI., “Tuhoe” by Mr. Elsdon Best, which work will shortly be ready for sale to Members. The cost of the production of these two “Memoirs” will approximate £2000, the whole of which has been provided by the Board, and in addition they are handing over to our “Memoir Fund” the whole of the net proceeds from the sale of these two works. Most generous dealings surely.

The necessary formalities for the transfer of the management of the Society from New Plymouth to Wellington will be taken at this meeting. Quarters have been secured in Wellington for the housing - iv of the library and accommodation for the Council and Executive Officers, in a fire-proof building now in course of erection in a central and convenient position. These quarters will be shared by the Maori Research Board, which, we understand, will be responsible for the rent, subject to a pro forma adjustment in accordance with the financial status of the Society.

It is now twenty-five years since New Plymouth became the head-quarters of the Society, our late founder and leader, Mr. S. Percy Smith, having taken up his residence here in 1900. The crisis in the Society's affairs caused by the death of Mr. Smith, has been successfully overcome, and we believe that it has now entered upon a new and extended phase of work, and toward which our founder's farseeing and well-laid plans have proved of paramount assistance. In passing on the control of the Society's work to the new Council, we wish that body every success and an increasing development in the aims laid down by the Constitution of the Society. “ The promotion of the study of Anthropology and kindred sciences amongst the Polynesian races.” It will be the duty and responsibility of this meeting to elect an entirely new Council from Members resident within the city and suburban area of Wellington. As chairman of the present Council, and one of the founders of the Society, and for the past twenty-five years actively connected with its management, I shall feel the severance keenly. At the same time I am satisfied that the step now being taken is in the bests interests of the Society, as its future is now, I believe, assured.

It is with regret that we have to record the death during the past year of certain of our fellow members, amongst whom is one of the founders of the Society. Henry Dunbar Johnson, a some time Judge of the Maori Land Court, also Sir Walter Buchaman, who was an old member of the Society, having joined up in 1898. Another who has recently passed away is Mr. R. H. Rockell, M.A., a valued Member of the Council, and one keenly interested in the Society's work.

On the occasion of the Society's last meeting in New Plymouth, the Council desires to tender its thanks to all those who have helped to advance and carry on the work of the Society. Particularly is our gratitude due to the Editor and Associate Editors of the Polynesian Journal, the Secretary and the Treasurer of Society, and to contributors of papers to the Journal, without whose individual efforts the Society and its Journal could not have continued. From the foundation of the Society the whole of this work has been honorary and the thanks of the members are owing to those who have given of their best, in various ways, in endeavouring to forward the aims and interests of the Institution.
