Though triumph was what Lea felt over Falkenberg, he still had problems to deal with, particularly as a result of governmental inquiries into the troubled reform army. Meawhile the news of the Fresno incident in San Francisco– press released further anxiety for the Pao Huang Hui and Lea's optimism was short-lived. Meanwhile, Lea and the reformers could not afford to have the governor speculate about the continuous cropping up of reform cadets. Due to this, Lea planned to meet with General Frederick N. Funston, but General Funston responded to the invitation negatively. His mistake in approaching Funston resulted in the one thing that he did not need: the distinct possibility of a U.S. Army investigation into the CIA. In addition to this, Lea faced a hidden adversary in Falkenberg, who resurfaced to renew his scheming and accusations against Lea.
