Mr. Alexander McBean died at Seymour on Tuesday after a long illness. He was 56 years of age (writes the Pastoral Times). Mr. McBean was born in Scotland and came to Australia 40 years ago. He managed Windouran Station, near Moulamein, for some years, and became well known throughout the Moulamein and Deniliquin districts. He was a councillor and president of the Windouran Shire Council, and took a very keen interest in local government matters. He was a member of the committee of the Southern Picnic Race Club (Deniliquin), and won several races at the club's meetings with his horses Martello and Mitzi. After leaving Windouran Station, Mr. McBean acquired a property at Seymour, where his interest in racing was continued, and he became a vice-president and steward of Seymour Turf Club. Deceased was a son of the late Mr. and Mrs. William McBean, of Dunach, Scotland. He was twice married, his first wife being a daughter of the late Sir Simon Fraser, and after her death he married Miss Bolge, formerly a sister on the Deniliquin Hospital staff. He is survived by his wife, two sons and three daughters.
