ANNUAL MEETING OF THE SOCIETY, FOR THE YEAR ENDING 31ST DECEMBER, 1918.
THE Meeting took place on the 29th January, 1919, at the Hempton Room, where the Society's Library is installed. There were several members present, the President being in the chair.
The minutes of the last annual meeting were read and confirmed, and then the Annual Report of the Council and the year's accounts, which were passed and ordered to be printed in the March number of the ‘Journal.’ They will be found below.
In accordance with the rules, the President retired and two members of the Council also, the latter by ballot. Mr. S. Percy Smith was re-elected President, and Messrs. M. Fraser and W. W. Smith re-elected to the Council.
A vote of thanks was passed to Mr. W. D. Webster for auditing the accounts, and he consented to act in the same capacity this ensuing year. Also a vote of thanks was accorded Mr. W. H. Skinner for preparing the Index to last year's volume.
The following new members were then elected:—
- Hubert E. Vaile, Queen Street, Auckland.
- The Adalbert College, Western Reserve University, Cleveland, Ohio, U.S.A.
A discussion took place on a paragraph in the annual report referring to the reading of papers before the Society, and the question was finally referred to the Council.
A resolution was passed expressing the opinion of the members present as to the desirability of the appointment of a Curator of the New Borough Museum, New Plymouth, which was ordered to be conveyed to His Worship the Mayor.
ANNUAL REPORT OF THE COUNCIL, FOR THE YEAR ENDING 31ST DECEMBER, 1918
THE Council of the Society has pleasure in presenting to the Annual Meeting its Twenty-sixth Report, showing in brief form the activities of the Society during the past twelve months.
The most noticeable feature of the past year has been the removal of the headquarters into the commodious apartments of the Hempton room where our library and office have been installed, and which was opened by His Worship the Mayor, as referred to in our last annual report. The additional accommodation thus provided by the generosity of a lady of New Plymouth, has allowed of our library being for the first time arranged in a form where access to the books has become easy, just as in other libraries; whilst the comfort in working by the officers of the Society has been greatly appreciated. The books - ii that have accumulated by exchange and gift during the past twenty-seven years now occupy 240 feet of shelving, with wall space for at least three times as much. Arrangements have been made for opening the library to the public on Monday and Saturday afternoons, and on Wednesday evenings for the purpose of reference or study, and for the issue of books to members, an officer of the Society being in attendance at these times. We should be glad to welcome more visitors to the library for purposes of study, for though our collection naturally consists mostly of works on ethnology, the liberality of our exchanges provides us with works on most of the sciences; our American exchanges are particularly liberal in this respect.
The rules passed by the first meeting of the Society in 1892, defined our objects as follows: “The Society is formed to promote the study of the anthropology, ethnology, philology, history and antiquities of the Polynesian races by the publication of an official journal to be called ‘The Journal of the Polynesian Society,’ and by the collection of books, manuscripts, photographs, relics, and other illustrations.”We think that these objects have been fairly well carried out as exemplified in the 27 volumes of our journal, which contain original matter that would otherwise, but for our Society, have been lost for ever to the world and the future students of the race. Naturally the great problem that presents itself for solution is the origin of our Pacific Island peoples. The mystery surrounding this question has had for very many people a great fascination. The tendency of all observation so far is to carry the ancestors of the people back to Indonesia, and this view is supported by all lines of study. Beyond that, the matter is in some doubt, though some of us hold strong opinions about it and see in the early Aryan migrants into India the ancestors of the Polynesians. Towards the final solution of the question we may fairly claim to have helped to lay the foundations, by the original matter preserved in our journal. But much yet remains to be done. For instance, no reasonable hypothesis has as yet been formulated accounting for the Easter Island statues, some light upon which may, however, be thrown by the publication of Mrs. Scoresby Routledge's forthcoming work, the results of a year's sojourn on that island.
Our Rules, in defining the functions of the Society, do not provide for the reading and discussion of papers by members at meetings to be held for the purpose, as is the custom in similar societies. But there is no reason why this course should not be adopted if members wish it. Such discussions often bring out points that are not alluded to in the papers read, and thus are beneficial. Were this course adopted, aided by occasional lectures—not necessarily on strict ethnological lines—it might tend to popularise the work of the Society, and if the public generally were invited to attend, the result would furnish people with something to think about in addition to their daily round of duties.
Our membership was slightly increased during the year, and on December 31st the roll was as follows:—
During the year three members resigned and four died—Mr. W. Kerr, S.M., who was a member of our council for several years; Dr. H. Colley March, an original member, and a well-known writer on ethnology; Mr. A. H. Turnbull, of Wellington, well-known in connection with his celebrated library of works relating to New - iii Zealand; and Mr. J. H. Wilson, judge of the Native Land Court, who succumbed to the influenza epidemic. We have also reason to fear that another promising member was killed in France, but as yet have no certain information. The number of members who joined the Society at its formation in 1892 are now reduced to 17, We exchange publications with 44 societies, universities, Government departments, etc., and receive in exchange more than an equivalent from some of them.
There is a considerable demand for sets of our publications from various parts of the world, which we are no longer able to meet so far as some of the earlier volumes of our “Journal” are concerned, as they are out of print. If satisfactory arrangements can be made these ought to be reprinted; it would pay the Society in the long run to do so. Furthermore, our library is increasing so fast that immediate expansion of the shelving accommodation has become necessary.
On December 31st there were 27 members in arrear for one year, nine for two years, and four for three years. These latter will have to be struck off the roll in accordance with our rules.
It will be seen from the treasurer's statement that financially we are in a good position, as there is a balance in hand of £45. Our correspondence with all parts of the world increases, for the Society is getting known far and wide, so that we are frequently applied to for information on Polynesian ethnological subjects.
