The Bulgarian uprising of 1903 sounded the alarm in Athens, which realized -- albeit belatedly -- that merely having many schools was not the best way of balancing the dynamism of the Bulgarian committees.

The start of the Greek armed defensive can be attributed to the initiative of the metropolitan of Kastoria Yermanos Karavangelis, the diplomat Ion Dragoumis and the Macedonian Committee, an ostensibly private organization with substantial state backing, based in Athens.
