Browning, Jr. claims their intervention was provoked by a statement from the Indian's attorney a few days earlier: "We recieved the word that in the event the government would not immediately present to them some proposal, giving them either use or title to the island, that they were prepared to (quote) 'do something' (unquote), in respect to the island."
