Excellency: Referring to your note of May 5, 1915, and to previous correspondence concerning the proceedings instituted against Consul Müller at Seattle, Washington, I have now the honor to inform you of the receipt of a telegram from the Governor of that State, stating that the charges against Consul Müller and his Secretary brought in the superior court of King County, in which county Seattle is located, have been dismissed by the Prosecuting Attorney of that county. The Governor adds that this clears up the entire situation in relation to the Seattle matter.
