the strange turn of events on Elec-
tion Day and the actions of the can-
didates in the aftermath.
On the topic of the ballot in Palm
Beach County, Fla., the partisan
lines between Rivers and Schwarz
were clearly drawn as each defended
their own candidate. Many residents
in the traditionally liberal county have
claimed they mistakenly voted for
Reform Party candidate Pat Buchanan
instead of Vice President Al Gore.
Pending the result of a hand recount
in Palm Beach, Gore has threatened to
take the election to the courts, while
Bush has already filed an injunction to
stop the hand-counting process.
Asked by the audience Friday where
Buchanan's federal funding went,

Rivers joked, "That's the question:
What happened to that money ? Well,
he must have spent it in Palm County."
Buchanan received more than 3,400
votes in the county - thousands more
than anywhere else in Florida -- and
voters have blamed the layout of the
ballot for creating confusion.
Rivers said the events in Palm Beach
County should be examined and said
Republicans would feel likewise if the
situation were reversed. The legality of
the ballot "only matters when it could
change the outcome of the election," she
said, as is the case in this year.
Schwarz said he wants to see the
election come to a speedy conclusion.
"It shouldn't go to the courts," he said.
"Once in the courts, always in the
courts," Schwarz said. "If Bush's lead
holds (in Florida), Al Gore should
concede, and vice versa," he said.

enormous to accept whatever results
Florida has reached."
The Bush team dispatched an
"urgent message" by e-mail yesterday
asking supporters for up to 55,000 to
help finance the recount campaign.
Democrats are hoping to raise S3 mil-
lion, with top Gore aides moving from
his headquarters in Tennessee to
Democratic offices in Washington.
Among the weekend developments:
Palm Beach County, Fla., election
officials added three dozen additional
.votes to Gore early yesterday in a
marathon mechanical recount. Leaders
of the Democratic stronghold then
decided to manually check each of the
425,000 votes cast. One top county
official said he will try to block the
Officials said their manual recount

canvassing commission, argued that a
manual recount of 100 percent of the
precincts could potentially change as
many as 1,900 additional votes - far
more than the existing statewide mar-
gin between the two candidates.
* In Deland, Fla., Volusia County
officials began a manual recount of all
184,018 ballots, despite Bush's pending
request to stop it. With Democratic-
laden Daytona Beach included, Gore's
team hoped to pick up more votes.
* Polk County, Fla., officials, res-
canning ballots by machine for a third
day, found an additional 104 votes for
Bush and seven for Gore. Home to
Lakeland, the county went for Bush.
* Democrats added Osceola County
to their list of hand recount requests.
Gore had a small lead over Bush in the
54,000-plus votes cast in the county just
south of Orlando. Hispanic voters
alleged they were required to produce
two forms of identification when only
one was required.
* Bush had a 17-vote lead in New
Mexico, where state police have begun
impounding ballots from Tuesday's

Clinton's meeting with Barak delayed
WASHINGTON - President Clinton was making another appeal yesterday to
end the violence in the Middle East, meeting at the White House with Israeli Prime
Minister Ehud Barak three days after a visit with Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat..
Barak, whose trip was delayed after twice reversing his plane's course due-to a
hijacking crisis at home, has offered little hope the meeting could help end t
bloodshed that has killed nearly 200 people in the past six weeks.
The violence has shattered what remained of Clinton's hopes for a settlement
before his term ends in January.
Arafat, who held discussions Thursday with the president, indicated afterward
that he would consider another Middle East summit, with Clinton as host, pro-
vided it was well-prepared "to ensure its success." And that, the Palestinian
leader said, meant on accord on both Jerusalem and refugees.
Barak has refused to turn over East Jerusalem to the Palestinians, but offered
them a larger role in running their dailyaffairs in Israel's declared capital. He has
called a time-out in peacemaking until the violence ends.
Yesterday's meeting was set for early afternoon but was pushed back int6 the
evening because of the hijacking. A Russian airliner headed to Moscow o
domestic flight was seized by a Chechen man who surrendered after diverti
the plane to Israel's southern desert. The 57 passengers and crew were all safe,
officials said.

Unsettled election
could stall Congress
WASHINGTON - Lame-duck
sessions of Congress are -always
unpredictable, but the one starting this
week could prove even more muddled
because of the unsettled presidential
Neither party's congressional leaders
know whether it makes sense to resolve
budget fights quickly or try delaying a
deal until the next administration -
with either Republican George W. Bush
or Democrat Al Gore in the White
I louse on Jan. 20, inauguration day.
Top Democrats seem ready to settle
and leave town quickly. With their ally,
President Clinton, still in office, they
appear eager to shake hands on a huge
education, health and labor bill that was
nearly completed before Congress left
town on Nov. 3 for the elections.
"There's an array of issues that have
to be addressed. I don't think we can
leave without having addressed them,"
Senate Minority Leader Tom Daschle,
(D-South Dakota), said yesterday on
CBS' "Face the Nation." Earlier, he

said, "It will take give on both sides,
but I think we can do that."
Five of the 13 annual spending bills
for fiscal 2001, which began Oct. 1,
are hanging. They cover seven Cabi-
net departments, dozens of smaller
agencies, congressional operatio
and the District of Columbia's budget.
Internet group may
add 44 new suffixes
relieve overcrowding in dot-coin
addresses, the international organiza-
tion in charge of Internet names could
select several new suffixes by week's
end. The move would represent tl
first major expansion of Web names
since the existing structure was deyel-
oped in the 1980s.
The Internet Corporation for
Assigned Names and Numbers begins
a four-day meeting today to consider
44 proposed suffixes. Adding new suf-
fixes is like adding new telephone area
codes to accommodate growth. More
than 24 million names are register

U.S. military planes
collide; pilot missing
TOKYO - Two U.S. military
jets collided over waters off north-
ern Japan early today, the Japanese
Coast Guard said.
One pilot was rescued but the
other was missing.
The F-16s collided off Oshima
Island, 410 miles north of Tokyo,
said Toshifumi Nishikawa,
spokesman for the Coast Guard
based in Otaru, on nearby Hokkai-
do Island.
Both the pilots apparently ejected
from their planes and one of them
was rescued from the water by the
Japanese Air Self-Defense Force,
said Toshimi Okimoto, a JASDF
spokesman. There were no other
people aboard.
The survivor's name and condi-
tion were not immediately known,
Okimoto said. The other pilot was
still missing, and a search -
including U.S. forces and Japanese
Coast Guard helicopters and ships

- was under way.
The two jets, based at Misawa
U.S. Air Base, were participating in
a joint U.S.-Japan military exergise

condition of the pilots 'was

Leah Rabin dies
from cancer battle
JERUSALEM - Leah Rabin, w
became an outspoken campaigner or
peace after her husband, the late Israeli
Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, was
struck down by an assassin's bullet,
died yesterday of cancer. She was 12:
Mrs. Rabin had never hesitated to
criticize friend or foe in the five years
since her husband was shot by an
ultranationalist Jew. Though viewed
by some of her countrymen as a divi-
sive figure, she was feted abroad as a
promoter of Israeli-Arab coexisten.c
