Arthur A. McLean Dead

Democratic< State Committee Treasurer Pleaded Guilty to Indictment

Newburg, N.Y., June 5 - Arthur A. McLean, Treasurer of the Democratic State Committee for many years and a Democratic leader in Orange County for twenty-five year, died here tonight. He is survived by his wife, one daughter, and five sons, three of whom are officers in the American Expeditionary Forces in France.

Mr. McLean, who was the proprietor of a large liquor and grocery business here, was widely known through the State as a Democratic leader and close friend of Charles F. Murphy. In 1913 Mr. McLean was indicted for accepting campaign contributions from corporations and contractors. On Jan. 13, 1914, Mr. McLean pleaded guilty to one of two indictments against him and was allowed to go free on a suspended sentence by Justice Davis of the Criminal Branch of the Supreme Court upon a plea for clemency by his lawyers, supported by Governor Whitman, who was at that time District Attorney.
