"Al" HAMM, the well known oarsman, died
yesterday at his home in Halifax, N. S., of hemorrhage in
the thirty-first year of his age. He began his aquatic
career twelve years ago, and frequently held the
championship of the Halifax harbor.
With Conley, of Portland, he defeated Gandaur
and Trickett in a double scull race at the Toronto
regatta. Hamm has taken part in numerous
regattas in the United States and elsewhere.
