The state department advises me this morning that the Mexican foreign office reports that military authorities in the state of Tantauli-pas have been given definite and positive orders to actively pursue the assailants and assassins of John W. Correll.
In order to identify the four bandits guilty of the crime said authorities have ordered a minute investigation to be made among the inhabitants in the place where the crime occurred. The state department has telegraphed the American embassy at Mexico City to keep this matter constantly before the Mexican foreign office for action.
