1906_Blackwoods Magazine – ‘An Underground Republic’ by Member of Dame Gruev’s Rebel Band

than are the Greeks. Under the names of well-known chiefs, they
try to send bands into Macedonia to agitate for the annexation
idea. What more natural than that we should order them out
when they appear? And if they, feeling secure in being of our
own flesh and blood, defy us, what can we do but drive them
out?
