DAVENPORT ESTATE SPLIT.
The Land Apportioned la Accordance
With tbe Owners' Interceta.
The commission appointed by
Judge Bigelow to apportion the re
maining 600 acres of the Davenport
estate according to the interests of
the (respective heirs and assigns,
in response to a petition tiied in
court by the owners of the property,
has made its report, which has been
approved by the conrt. After the
death 01 Bailey Davenport a syndi
cate composed of Capt. T. J.
Robinson, Frederick Weverhauser,

field, was formed and purchased
tne interests 01 tne three sons
who, together with the daugh-
. f; V 2 . . . 1 .

held an equal share in the property.
The purchase of the sons' property
gave to the Weyerhauser syndicate
as it is generally known a
three-fifth's interest. The daughters
retained their two-fifths interest.
This naturally complicated matters
when any ol the interested parties
were desirous of disposing of any
portion 01 tne iana neither side
being at liberty to sell without con
sulting the other. Recent exper
iences in this connection prompted
the petitioning for a division of the
property. J he court appointed E. E.
Parmenter, J. M. Buford and E. 11.
Guyer commissioners to perform the
work. They submitted their report,
wmcn was approved.
