"Proud of the history made by the Republican Party, nationally,
.rritorially and locally, and of its many achievements, we now bind
ourselves to the specific future performance of every plank made in
and the Territorial platform; submitted as a guarantee of perform
ance rather than a confession of faith; and in the accomplishment of
ihese ends, we earnestly ask the support of every good citizen irrespective
of past political affiliations.
