ANNUAL MEETING OF THE SOCIETY. For the Year Ending 31st December, 1923.

THE Annual Meeting of the Polynesian Society took place in the Hempton room, Public Library, on Tuesday, January 29th, 1924, at 7.30 p.m. 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 the last annual meeting were read and confirmed.

The Chairman moved the adoption of the report and balance sheet, and after some explanatory remarks, the motion was agreed to.

Mr. Elsdon Best (Wellington) was unanimously re-elected President. The retiring members of the Council, Messrs. Murdoch Fraser, Chas. Watterston and Captain Wm. Waller, were re-appointed.

The question of the transfer of the headquarters of the Society to Wellington was introduced by way of notice of motion by the Chairman, who moved: “That provided satisfactory arrangements can be made for the continuance of the Society and the editing of the Journal at Wellington, the headquarters be transferred to that city as soon as convenient after such arrangements have been completed.” The Chairman said he could add little to what had already been said, and printed in the Journal, in regard to this proposal. In view of the establishment of the “Maori Ethnological Research Fund, with the board of management in Wellington, and in consideration that the aims of the new body were practically identical with those of the Polynesian Society, and consequenty it would be to the advantage of both parties to be near each other for consultative purposes, it was desirable for the advancement of ethnological work in Polynesia that our headquarters should be transferred to Wellington as soon as satisfactory arrangements could be made. Continuing, Mr. Skinner said that on the formation of the new Research Board, the proposal to move to Wellington had come from members of that Board, who were keenly interested in the Polynesian Society and its future. In the past the work of the Society had been carried on by the late Mr. Percy Smith and one or two loyal co-workers. Personally, he felt that new life would be infused into the Society by linking up with the Research Board and joining forces in Wellington, where the bodies could be brought into closer contact and co-operation. By the undertaking given by the new Board to grant substantial monetary assistance in furthering the aims of the Society, they would have the means, should the necessity arise, of providing help with regard to the editing of the Polynesian Journal, but we trust such a contingency would not occur. In the meantime, our President, Mr. Elsdon Best, will take over the editing of the Journal. These changes, however, would - ii not take place until the Council was satisfied that all necessary arrangements had been completed by the Society's members in Wellington, for the continuance of the work, and members could rest assured that the handing over of its functions by the incoming Council to the new body to be appointed in Wellington, would not take place until arrangements, which were satisfactory in their opinion, had been made. It has been stated by the Hon. Mr. Ngata, M.P., on behalf of those chiefly interested in this transfer of head-quarters, that the library would remain in New Plymouth, and exchanges and additions would continue to come here, but whether this was a workable proposition or not remains to be seen.

The motion was seconded by Mr. Rockel, who said that he considered the position was amply safeguarded by making the change subject to the approval of the Council of the Society with regard to the arrangements made for the continuance of the Society at Wellington. Miss Percy Smith asked if there could be a reversion to New Plymouth if the matter did not work out satisfactorily. The Chairman explained that the headquarters could only be transferred back to New Plymouth on the recommendation of the Council in Wellington. He thought, however, there would be no transfer to Wellington until the Council was satisfied that no such contingency was likely to arise.

Mr. Fraser said the position appeared to be one in which there would be dual control if the headquarters were in Wellington and the library in New Plymouth. He thought the extreme step should not be taken until there had been a conference between members of the Council and those in Wellington who would be taking over control. It was a melancholy experience for the Council and he considered every precaution should be taken before parting with the library.

It was pointed out that no arrangements for the transfer of the headquarters would be regarded as satisfactory which did not safeguard the library. Mr. Skinner said plainly that, while the work of those who were carrying on the affairs of the Society here was highly appreciated, there were none of the younger generation offering to assist with the future control of its work. There was new blood in Wellington—men keenly interested in the aims of the Society, who would assist to carry on if the headquarters was there, but whose active interests could not be enlisted while they were so far removed from the controlling centre of the Society.

Mr. Morrison suggested that so long as the library was kept intact and the Journal continued, it mattered very little where the headquarters of the Society was located.

The motion was carried unanimously.

The meeting concluded with a vote of thanks to the Council for their work during the past year.

ANNUAL REPORT OF THE COUNCIL. For the Year Ending 31st December, 1923.

THE Council of the Society have pleasure in presenting the thirty-first annual report, and in doing so beg to offer their congratulations to members in having completed another period of satisfactory work. It will be remembered that doubts were expressed at the last annual meeting as to the possibilities of continuing the operations of the Society owing to the lamented death of its founder and guiding spirit, the late Mr. S. Percy Smith, but thanks to the combination and loyalty of our members, especially those who have provided the material for the Polynesian Journal, the Council have been enabled to carry on without interruption over what may be considered the most critical period in the life of the Society. In respect to this, owing to recent ethnographic developments within the Dominion, we may now, I believe, claim with confidence that the future of the Society is assured.

The outstanding local features in the past year's ethnographic work, and in which the Society is vitally interested, has been the founding and successful launching of the Board of Maori Ethnological Research, whose constitution and aims were fully set out in No. 3 of Vol 32 (September, 1923) of the Polynesian Journal, so it is unnecessary to enlarge here upon the aims of this body more than to say that its main one is to work along similar lines to our own Society and to assist financially in the extension of ethnographic research in Western Polynesia, which has been hampered in the past by the lack of funds. As an earnest of their desire to assist, the new Board has voted this Society a grant of £300 for the coming year towards the cost of enlarging and printing the Polynesian Journal. Appreciation of this generous help has already been made by your Council to the Research Board.

Consequent upon the establishment of the Board of Maori Ethnographic Research, whose centre of work has of necessity to be in Wellington, the question has been raised as to the advisability of transferring the headquarters of this Society to Wellington for the mutual benefit of both institutions in carrying out their varied function. All the information available as to this proposal of transfer, reasons for, etc., was placed before members in the September issue of the Journal—No. 3 of Vol. 32—together with copy of the notice of motion dealing with the proposed change of headquarters, the consideration of which will be the main business to come before the present meeting.

We regret to have to record the death of certain of our members during 1923, amongst whom is one of the original band, or founders of the Society—Mr. Richard Barton Roy. Others who have passed away during the year are Messrs. Wm. F. Brooking and Robert Murdock. Another, who although not a member for some time prior to his death, was a few years ago a contributor to the Polynesian Journal and took a keen interest in the working of the Society. We refer to the late Captain Gilbert Mair, N.Z.C., who recently - iv passed away at an advanced age. Captain Mair was a ripe Maori scholar, beloved of that people, and had served his country long and faithfully, both on the battlefield and in civil life.

On December 31st our membership was as follows:—

Patrons 3
Honorary Members 10
Corresponding Members 13
Ordinary or Subscribing Members 214
Total 240

This shows an increase of eight ordinary members over the previous year, and we have good reasons for anticipating a further increase for 1924.

Members will have noticed—as foreshadowed in last Annual Report—an increase in the size of the Journal, both as regards reading matter and illustrations. This has been made possible by the assistance received from a monetary grant made by the Department of Native Affairs, and in anticipation of help, as stated above from the Board of Ethnographic Research. We are pleased to know that this forward step has met with the approval of members, and trust that funds will permit of its continuation. At present our finances are somewhat strained, but this will be corrected early in the coming year, when arrears of subscriptions are paid up and the grant from the new Board becomes available.

In conclusion the Council wishes to thank most cordially those contributors who have supplied much valuable material, the great proportion of which was original matter, for publication in the Journal during the past year, and to those who have assisted in other directions the work of the Society.
