VOL. XXXII.—1923.

THE Annual Meeting of the Polynesian Society took place in the Hempton room, Public Library, on Tuesday afternoon, January 30th, 1923. About a dozen members of the Society, including several ladies, were present. In the absence of Mr. Elsdon Best (President), from whom an apology was received, Mr. W. H. Skinner occupied the chair.

The minutes of last annual meeting were read and confirmed, after which the Annual Report and Accounts were read and passed, for which see below.

In accordance with the rules of the society, the President—Mr. Elsdon Best, F.N.Z.I.—retired from office, but was unanimously re-elected to the position.

Messrs. Waterston, Skinner and Rockel retired by ballot from the council, but on the motion of Mr. Morrison, seconded by Mr. Standish, they were re-elected for the ensuing year.

A brief reference as to what steps had been taken to have the society constituted as a “Royal” Society, and proposals for future action in this direction, was made by the Chairman and Mr. Rockel.

Reference to the scarcity of old numbers of the society's journal was made by Mr. Rockel. He had made inquiries regarding the cost of reprinting some of the volumes, but he had found this was prohibitive even by a process in which printing was eliminated, details of which he supplied. It was a lamentable thing that there was such a shortage, as they often had requests for copies from institutions not only within the Empire but in foreign countries. He appealed to members to endeavour to obtain any spare copies which they might come across.

At a subsequent meeting of the council Messrs. Waterston and P. J. H. White were re-appointed joint secretaries and treasurers.


THE Council of the Society has pleasure in submitting the thirtieth report.

The past year has been one of anxiety to the Council. The death of our President and Founder and also Editor of the Polynesian Journal since its inception, has been a severe blow to the work and aims of the society. The passing of Mr. S. Percy Smith brought about a crisis causing grave concern to the Council, as it was difficult to forecast the future, with the active director and controller of the society, since its foundation, taken from us.

In the opinion of the Council, it would be an act of disloyalty to the memory of our late leader to allow his great work to cease without an effort to continue such, if only for a while, and accordingly it was decided to carry on, subject to assistance being forthcoming towards the supply of material for the society's publications. Acting upon this decision many of the contributors of material to - ii the Journal were communicated with resulting in their unanimous offers of help, and the strong advocacy of the continuation of the society's work through the medium of the Polynesian Journal, also of the retaining of the head-quarters at New Plymouth, where the organisation and necessary machinery for continuation of the work existed.

Following upon these satisfactory replies, Mr. Elsdon Best, F.N.Z.I., one of the leading authorities on Polynesian lore, and so long associated with the late Mr. Percy Smith in the conduct of the society, and also a voluminous contributor to the pages of the Polynesian Journal, was elected President of the Society. Mr. W. H. Skinner, at the request of the Council, consented to undertake the duties of Editor of the Journal, and with him in this work was associated Mr. W. W. Smith, an original member and for many years one of the Council and Hon. Secretary to the society. We regret that Mr. Smith was unable to undertake these duties owing to his resignation of membership from the society. Messrs. P. J. H. White and Chas. Waterston were appointed joint Honorary Secretaries and Treasurers. With these amendments to its personnel, the Council is now carrying out the work devolving upon it in the management of the society, and we trust that such efforts may be in a great measure successful. The policy of the Council will be to continue, as far as that is possible, along the lines laid down by our late President and Founder, viz., to promote the study of the anthropology, ethnology, philology, history and antiquities of the Polynesian races.

The issue of a special memorial number in July, dealing with the life and work of our late President, we are gratified to know has been received with general satisfaction by our members.

The regular issue of the Journal has been maintained throughout the year. The four quarterly numbers for 1922 are now in the hands of members, marking the completion of the thirty-first volume of the Polynesian Journal.

We regret to have again to chronicle the removal by death of certain of our members. Apart from Mr. Percy Smith, there has also passed another of our original members in the person of Mr. Frank S. Smith, a younger brother of the late President. There also died in the last days of the year Mr. Wm. E. Atkinson. These together with losses by resignation has reduced to fifteen the number of original members, or founders, now remaining in the society.

Amongst the honorary members we have to record the death, at a very advanced age, of the Rev. R. H. Codrington, D.D., Fellow of Wadham College, Oxford, and for many years a member of the Melanesian Mission. He was the author of a number of works and articles dealing with the language, customs, folk-lore, etc., of the Melanesian people. At the time of his death he was the senior on our list of honorary members.

On December 31st, 1922, our membership was as follows:—

Patrons 3
Honorary Members 10
Corresponding Members 15
Ordinary Members 195
Total 223

This shows a slight decrease of members compared with the figures for last year. Our exchanges now number fifty-one.

The finances of the society are quite satisfactory, and the careful management of the past is now showing good results. It will be observed that we ended the - iii year with a credit balance of £76 12s. 3d. in the general account, and £216 2s. in the capital account. Owing to the decision arrived at by the Council for the more liberal use of illustrations with the articles published in the Journal, we must expect an increase in the publisher's costs in the future. This, however, will be money well spent, as it will enable the acceptance of a certain class of articles, which have been declined in the past on the score of cost in publishing, but which are technically of the greatest value to students for comparative purposes. Also we look forward by this means to the popularising of the Journal, and so increasing our membership and revenue.

We are pleased to report that much valuable material has been recently received, and promised, for issue in the Polynesian Journal. This has relieved the Editor of any anxiety he may have felt with regard to the literary matter available and suitable for issue in the society's publications.

In conclusion, the Council wishes to thank most cordially those contributors who have supplied much valuable material for publishing in the Journal during the past year, and for their assurance of continued help in this respect.

The report was adopted.
