Daughter of Winfield Scott
Doesn't Seem to be Satisfied
with Amount Left Her.
In the Fort Worth Teleirram
of u few .lays ao we gather the
following information with re
gard to the late will of Win
field Scott, who was very exten
sively -fcnown in the western
part of the State:
Mrs. (Jeorgia Scott Townsend.

tor, cattle king and capitalist

tie with her step-motrer, Mrs.
Klizabeth Scott, and A. 15.
liobertson. executor of the will,
for $l,rMM).MK, which she claims
is her portion of the estate in
lieu of the income of about $1)0
a month which she is given
by the terms of the will. At
torneys for Mrs. Townsend an
nounced Tuesday that the suit
would be tiled within the next
ten days.
For some time there have been
reports that Mrs. Townsend
would contest the will of her
uther, but at one time there.
was a contrary report to the
Hl'ect that a compromise had
been ejected. The announce
ment id' her attorneys Tuesday
was the first definite one of
her intentions.
The Scott will, disposing of
property valued at approximately
$4.(HM),(XH), was admitted to
probate by County .Judge I'.rat
ton Tuesday. Mrs. Kli.abeth
Scott, widow of the late finan
cier, was present in court and
was represented in the formal
proceedings by her attorneys,
Capps, Cantey. Hanger & Stout,
and Miller & Stephens.
In her contest, which will be
filed as soon as the executors
file an inventory of the estate.
Mrs. Townsend will be repre

Lean, and by Thompson. Spoon ts
it P.arwise.
It is probable that the contest
will be filed within the next
ten days, but the trial cannot be
held until the county court.
Under the terms of the will
the bulk of the immense .fortune
goes to Mrs. Fli.abeth Scott,
the widow of the dead capitalist,
and to Winfield Scott. .Jr., his
ten-year-old son.

enues of this property are not

The tight to break the will be
waged on the ground that undue
