"DEATH OF A VETERAN POLICEMAN
Mourning Among the Officers of the Eighteenth District

The flag on the Eighteenth District Station House yesterday floated at half-mast, while crepe on the door and in the roll room announced the death of Officer Andrew Clamp, aged 50 years, of 2207 Blair street.

Mr. Clump who had been feeling ill for the past few days, was attaked by an apoplectic stroke early on Sunday morning and before medical assistance counld be rendered he died. For fifteen years he had been in the district, and for thirteen years, he patrolled the "station-house beat," from Frankford avenue to Front street, and from Dauphin to Norris streets. During all the years that he was connected with the police department Mr. Clump never slept in a bed, but always slept on two chairs in the corner of the roll room. He never made any explanation for doing so and in time the peculiar action was not noticed by his brother officers. The two chairs and the corner of the room where he habitually slept were yesterday draped in crape in kind remembrance of the dead officer by his companions."
