The Phonograph published in its issue of Oct. 29th, the death and obituary of our former townsman, George J. Walbridge, which occurred at Sacred Heart Hospital in Spokane, Wash., Friday night, Oct. 23d, but were unable to give cause of death. We have since learned that stricture of the bladder and urenic poisoning was the cause.
