DR. W.J. LANEY, the oldest physician in this county and a pioneer citizen, esteemed for his many virtues, passed to his long rest at 3:30 Thursday morning, death being attributed to Bright's disease.  The funeral, attended by a large concourse of friends and relatives, was held yesterday afternoon, services being conducted at the M.E. Church by Rev. Bingaman, after which the remains were laid to rest in the city cemetery. A handsome floral piece, contributed by the business men was among the many tributes of respect.    DR. LANEY was born in Cumberland County, Ohio, April 15, 1827, and there began the study of medicine. At the conclusion of his studies at the Willoughby (Ohio) Medical School, in 1851, he came to Iowa, locating at Leon in 1853 and four years later moved to Decatur City.  The same year he moved to Decatur City, he was elected to represent this county in the first legislature under the new constitution.   May 16, 1866, he was married to MISS FANNY BRUCE, at Leon, and to their union one daughter, MRS. FLORA BROOM was born. His wife and daughter survive him.  It is almost two decades since DR. LANEY, with his family, came here from Decatur City and during all these years, he was ever the same--genial, charitable, a good friend, neighbor and citizen, as well as a physician who enjoyed the esteem of his fellow practitioners.
