Arthur J. Holland, 71, the longtime mayor of Trenton, died early today at St. Francis Medical Center in Trenton, the hospital said. A nursing supervisor said that Mr. Holland was pronounced dead at 12:01 a.m. at the hospital, where he had been undergoing treatment in recent weeks. Mr. Holland had disclosed earlier this year that he was suffering from cancer. In the last quarter-century, the Holland name had become synonymous with political leadership in Trenton. A Democrat, he won national publicity in 1964 - at the height of the civil rights movement - when he moved his family into a rowhouse in a lower-class, racially mixed neighborhood, and adopted it as his own. "I suppose I'm a natural optimist," Mr. Holland said in an interview in August.
