St. Albans Lawyer Succumbs after a Painful Illness of a Year's Duration.

Joseph H. Montefiore, aged 54 years, died at his home on High st. this morning at 10 o'clock.

Mr. Montefiore had been ill with heart trouble since a year ago the last of this month, and had been a great sufferer during his illness. He was able from time to time, during the summer months, to ride out, but except for these few times he had been confined to the house.

The funeral will be held at the house at 2 o'clock Sunday afternoon, the arrangements being under the direction of the St. Albans Lodge, No. 31, I. O. O. F.

Mr. Montefiore was born at St. Albans March 19, 1849 and was the son of Joshua Montefiore. He learned the printer's trade in all its branches, and later studied law. Before he was 21 years old he was admitted to the bar.

He edited the Vermont Daily and Weekly Transcript in this city for several years, and in 1873 he went to Wisconsin, where he was connected with the Baldwin Bulletin, Hammond Independent, and the Wilson Pioneer, prominent newspapers at that time. He remained in Wisconsin until 1878, where he began to write for the St. Paul Globe and the Minneapolis Tribune, and later became editor of the Minneapolis Herald.

In 1880 Mr. Montefiore returned to this city and resumed the practice of law, which profession he had followed until his failing health made it necessary for him to retire from business.

During the Civil war, he served one year in the Army of the Gulf. He was a member of A. B. Hurlburt Post, No. 60, G. A. R., and had served as commander for several years.

He was also a member of St. Albans Lodge, No. 31, I. O. O. F., being a past grand master of that organization.

Mr. Montefiore was twice married, his first wife, Alice I. Baker, died in 1884. Thirteen years ago he again married and this wife with one son, Barron W., survives him. He also leaves a son by his first wife, Charles H. B. Montefiore of this city.
