Timoteo Paez and Apolinario Mabini, organized themselves into a new group called Los Compromisaros because each member pledged or promised to contribute money for the financial aid of the Propaganda Movement in Spain.
The end marked the beginning
Andres Bonifacio, a member of the Liga Filipina , did not join the Compromisarios who were conservative intellectuals and affluent merchants because he was both poor and a man of action and radical views. He firmly believed that the happiness and welfare of the Filipino People could not be achieved by peaceful requests for reforms, but by violent revolution.
