Gore breaks ground for memorial
OKLAHOMA CITY - Thousands came to the site of the Oklahoma City
bombing yesterday to break ground for a memorial to the 168 people who died,
with Vice President Al Gore digging the first stoop of dirt.
"The people who died here were victims of one of the cruelest visitations of q
this nation has ever seen," Gore said. "But we offer them today not pity but honor,
for as much as any soldier who ever fought in any war, they paid the price of our
freedom."
After speeches by Gore, Attorney General Janet Reno and other officials, Gore
took a shiny shovel and dug it into the ground where the Alfred P. Murrah Federal
Building once stood.
He handed the shovel to young Clint Seidl, who was in the second grade when
his mother died in the 1995 bombing. She worked for the Secret Service, and Clint
said he wants to do the same. Gore said several agents wanted to talk with Clint
after the ceremony.
Gore told those who ever wanted to demean the work of federal workers to
"come here and be silent and remember."
One after another, people grasped the shovel Gore passed to them and, dresse
in their Sunday best, took a turn tossing a chunk of soil into a pile.

Gates deposition
tapes part of trial
WASHINGTON - Bill Gates was
out of his element, to be sure. Given to
blunt talk as the combative chairperson
of Microsoft Corp., Gates had to weigh
his words cautiously under the probing
of two government adversaries.
For almost three days this summer,
in a windowless conference room at
Microsoft headquarters near Seattle,
Gates resisted them. It was 20 hours of
verbal jousting between the world's
richest man and the government's top
lawyers bent on proving him a predato-
ry monopolist.
Gates, admired and loathed for
Microsoft's remarkable influence
within the technology industry, won't
testify to defend his company during
the historic antitrust trial in
Washington entering its second
week.
But he is such a central figure that
government lawyers plan to show
videotapes tomorrow of hours of his
pretrial depositions, then to release

the tape to television stations as evi-
dence in the case.
In the tapes, Gates discusses his fears
that Internet software by rival Netscape
Communications Corp., coupled with
new programming language called J
that doesn't require Windows, threatened
his lucrative Windows operating system.

Friday night.
His was the first fatality among five

The killer remained at large yester-
day as an international investigation
continued. Police listed no suspects. All
of the previous attacks have occurred
within a few weeks of Nov. 11,
Veteran's Day, which is known
Remembrance Day in Canada.

Hurricane Mitch
threatens Caribbean
KINGSTON, Jamaica - Driving
rain squalls spawned by Hurricane
Mitch forced churches to cancel ser-
vices yesterday, flooded streets in the
Jamaican capital of Kingston and sent
residents scurrying for provisions.
Under dark, menacing skies, seaports
closed and buses and taxis stayed off
Kingston's streets as Mitch, the 13th
named storm of the Atlantic hurricane
season, swirled in the western
Caribbean Sea south of Jamaica.
Packing 145-mph winds, Mitch was
a powerful Category 4 hurricane that
could also threaten the Cayman Islands,
Cuba, Honduras and Colombia's tiny
islands off Central America, the U.S.
National Hurricane Center said.
Hurricane warnings were posted for
Jamaica and eastern Cuba and a hurri-
cane watch was in effect for the tourist
islands of the Caymans.
At 4 p.m. EST, Mitch was about 190
miles south-southwest of Grand
Cayman. Crawling west-northwest at
8 mph, its hurricane-force winds of at

least 74 mph extended 70 miles from
the center.
Sheets of rain reduced visibility to
few yards while squalls pelt
Kingston and Jamaica's eastern dis-
tricts. With rain expected at least
through today, authorities warned of
mudslides and flash floods, especially
in the mountains.
Bomb blast kills
Chechnya official
GROZNY, Russia - Chechnyato
anti-kidnapping official was killed yes-
terday when a bomb tore his car to pieces
on the day he was to launch a major
offensive on hostage-takers in the break-
away republic.
Shadid Bargishev's two bodyguards
were in critical condition, and several
passersby also were injured, doctors said.
Bargishev died on the operating table
after losing both legs in the blast in the
parking lot of the anti-kidnapping depag
ment office in the Chechen capital W
Grozny.
