WEBSTER - William E. WEBSTER, who was admitted to the bar in 1883 and who had practiced his profession in Batavia for nearly 40 years, died in the Batavia hospital, Thursday morning, from a complication of diseases from which he had suffered for some time. Three years ago Mr. WEBSTER had his left leg amputated below the knee, it being affected with gangrene. Mr. WEBSTER was 62 years old, was born in East Bloomfield and was graduated from the Canandaigua Academy following his training in the district schools of East Bloomfield. At the age of 20 years, he became a member of the faculty of Cary Collegiate Seminary at Oakfield, where he taught for three years. When he went to Batavia he first intended to take up the ministry of the Episcopal church, but he later entered the legal profession and studied law in the office of William C. WATSON until he was admitted to the bar. With the exception of one year spent in San Francisco, Cal., he practiced at Batavia continually. He had the reputation of being one of the best criminal lawyers in western New York and among his famous cases was that of Howard C. BENHAM, who was tried for murder twice and finally acquitted. He also defended Joseph ROSEVIEZ, who was charged with murder, following a bomb explosion in Batavia about 11 years ago, securing a reversal of the sentence in the Court of Appeals, which record stood out prominently in legal circles in this part of the state. Mr. WEBSTER was a Democrat in politics. He was a member of the Batavia Lodge of Elks in which he held membership card No. 1, and was a past exalted ruler of the lodge. He is survived by his wife, Mrs. Gertrude E. WEBSTER; two daughters, Miss Louise E. WEBSTER of Batavia and Miss Roxany WEBSTER, a nurse in the General Hospital, Buffalo; a son Daniel P. WEBSTER, a law student in the University of Buffalo; a brother, Dr. Fred WEBSTER and a sister, Mrs. William B. GALLUP of Victor.
