VOL. XXIX.—1920.

THE Annual Meeting took place on 28th January, 1920, at the Library, Hempton Room, when there were several of the members present, the President in the chair.

After the minutes of the last annual meeting had been read and confirmed, the Annual Report of the Council and the accounts for the year were read and passed, and ordered to be published in the next issue of the “Journal.” They will be found printed below.

The President having retired according to the rules, Mr. S. Percy Smith was re-elected President for the ensuing year. And on a ballot being taken Messrs. W. L. Newman and W. H. Skinner were drawn, but were re-elected as Members of the Council.

A vote of thanks to Mr. W. D. Webster was passed for auditing the accounts, and also one to Mr. W. H. Skinner for preparing the Index to Vol. XXVIII.

The following new members were then elected:—

  • Mr. A. E. Watkins, Egmont Street, New Plymouth.
  • Mr. John Goller, Inglewood.

It was reported that since the date of the report, the Society had lost one of its Fatrons by death: viz., Lord William Lee Plunket, G.C.M.G., K.C.M.G., K.C.V.O., K.B.E., D.L., formerly Governor of New Zealand, who died on 24th January. Lord Plunket had been our second Patron, Liliuokalani, Queen of Hawaii, having been the first.

Mr. R. Clinton Hughes brought up the question of lectures in connection with the Society to be held at the Library, and after a discussion the matter was referred to the Council to endeavour to carry out the idea.


THE Council in presenting to the Annual Meeting its Twenty-seventh Report, feels that it is in the position expressed in the quotation, “Happy is the country that has no history,” for the past year has been an uneventful one. We have continued the even tenor of our way, gradually accumulating matter which must in a large measure form the basis of the future history of the Polynesian race, whose history, languages, manners and customs, etc., form the raison d' etre of our existence.

Naturally the energies of the Society are concentrated on the production of our quarterly “Journal”—the 28th yearly volume of which has just been completed. It contains 243 pages of original matter—slightly more than last year's volume—and a few illustrations. Among the most notable contributions may be mentioned - ii Mr. Elsdon Best's “Land of Tara,” being the early history of the Maori occupation of Port Nicholson, commencing from the date of its discovery by the noted Polynesian explorer Kupe, in about the 10th century. The early history of Rarotonga Island deduced from the MSS. dictated by Te Ariki-Tara-Are, one of the old priests of that island, has been continued, and will form probably, when completed, the most detailed account of the origin and migrations of the Polynesian people, hitherto given to the world. Mr. H. Beattie's papers on “The Traditions and Legends of Murihiku” (Southland), are of great value, and give rise to some questions regarding the early settlement of the South Island of New Zealand, which have yet to be discussed, and may necessitate a slight alteration in the views now held thereon. The success attending Mr. Beattie's efforts engenders a deep regret that there was no one living in the South fifty years ago who had sufficient interest in these matters to have secured the vast amount of information evidently possessed by the Southland Maoris at that time.

During the past year we have had many applications for the whole series of our “Journal” from the commencement in 1892, but unfortunately, many of the early numbers are out of print, even the second edition of the first four volumes (excepting Volume III.) is exhausted. The demands come from several countries outside New Zealand. It would be quite worth the Society's while to have these early numbers reprinted.

Our library continues to increase in size, due to the liberality of our exchanges—notably from America—and now occupies some 250 feet of shelving. It is open to the public on Monday and Saturday afternoons and Wednesday evenings, when an officer of the Society is in attendance. We are glad to say that several of our members attend and take out books, while a few members of the public visit the library for reference—we should gladly welcome a greater number. It is a matter of regret that many of our valuable volumes, now in their original paper covers, cannot be bound; and many of our sets of publications are really very valuable, for probably no other copies of many of them exist in this Dominion. Thanks to the liberality of the donor of the Hempton room, where our library is situated, we have abundance of room for extension. Several gifts of valuable books have been received during the past year.

The Council deeply regrets to report that several valuable members have died during the year, among these in place of first importance is Lieut. -Colonel W. E. Gudgeon, C.M.G., who died on January 5th of this year, at the age of 78. He occupied the chair at the first meeting when the Society was constituted in 1892, and has been a constant contributor to the “Journal.” A detailed account of his connection with the Society will appear in the March “Journal.” We have also lost through the influenza epidemic, the Rev. Pere Hervé Audran, and Mr. Tati Salmon, the former a contributor of several papers on the Paumotu Islands, while the latter was a High Chief of Tahiti, and a man learned in Tahitian ancient lore. M. A. Leverd, also of Tahiti, was a victim to the epidemic. He was a frequent contributor to our “Journal,” and showed great promise of becoming one of the leading scholars on Polynesian subjects. We also lost Mr. A. Barron, an original member, Mr. J. P. Cooke, of Honolulu, and his Honour Sir J. E. Denniston, also an original member.

On the other hand the Council has elected twenty-two ordinary members and two corresponding members; Mr. T. G. Thrum, of Honolulu, the translator and annotator of the valuable series of documents left by the late Judge A. Fornander, published by the Bishop Museum, of Honolulu; and Mr. Stephen Savage, of Rarotonga, the translator of several Rarotongan papers.

- iii

Our membership at December 31st, 1919, thus stood as follows:—

Patrons 3
Honorary Members 12
Corresponding Members 11
Ordinary Members 178
Total 204

This shows an increase of 18 members as compared with the figures for the same period last year; but some three or four members will have to be struck off the roll for non-payment of subscription. There are only nineteen of the original members left who joined together to form the Society in 1892.

Reference in our annual reports has several times been made to the valuable series of traditions relating to the Marquesas Islands, of which we possess the only complete copy in existence. We should have published them ere this, but for the difficulty of getting them translated; but it is now proposed to print them, by degrees, in the “Journal,” for fear of accidents, and then bind them in a separate small volume, trusting to obtain a translation later on. The idea is to print a few pages at a time in each forthcoming “Journal.”

An item of news that should interest our members is that, the Pauahi Bishops' Museum, of Honolulu, is about to dispatch an expedition of a scientific character to visit all parts of the Pacific, and during which the subjects in which we are particularly interested, such as ethnology, history, etc., will find a prominent place. The leader of the expedition is Dr. Gregory, of Yale University, and it is probable the duration of the voyage will be about two years. We shall look forward to the results with very great interest, but regret it could not have taken place fifty years ago. We heartily congratulate the Museum authorities on their public spirit in undertaking this mission and wish it every success.

In financial matters we end the year with a credit balance in the general account of £47 0s. 5d., slightly larger than that of last year which was £45 7s. 1d. and, as will be seen by the treasurer's accounts attached, our capital account amounts to £154 17s. 1d. There are, as always, a few members in arrear with their subscriptions, but not so many as last year.

During the year we lost the services of Mr. J. B. Roy on the Council, after a service of six years, whose place was taken by the appointment of Mr. W. H. Skinner to the same office.
