Corgan contemplates future News union seeks injunction
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
CHICAGO - Smashing Pumpkins leader Billy
Corgan says his future will be a blank after the
band plays its final two concerts in Chicago this
“I haven't been this unstable in seven, eight
years,” he told the Chicago Tribune in Sunday’s
“The band coming to an end is a very stressful
idea to me. I know it’s the right thing, but I’m won
dering what it means.”
The band is calling it quits 13 years after mak
r. 11 1 ",w
ing its debut in a Chicago bar.
Corgan said he will take at least a year off to
“create a little bit of space between me and what
people think of me.”
"I want to be sure if I play music again that I’m
really confident about what I’m doing,” he said.
The sold-out final shows Wednesday and
Saturday are among the hottest tickets on the
Internet; one posting on the band’s fan-club site
sought as much as $1,000 a ticket.
The group’s half-dozen albums have sold more
than 22 million copies worldwide.

Times is threatening to fire
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
SEATTLE - The Northwest
Pacific Newspaper Guild on
Monday asked for a federal
injunction to prevent Seattle
Times managers from allegedly
telling striking employees they
could lose their jobs if they don’t
come back to work.
The request, filed through
the National Labor Relations
Board, accuses The Times of
telephoning striking workers at
home and telling them they
could lose their jobs to replace
ment workers unless they return
to work. Such tactics could pro
long the strike, the Guild said.

said Sunday that he plans to

Seattle Union Record.
On Sunday, The Times asked
for more police outside a Bothell

Bothell police said they

Liberal Party wins in Canada
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS_
OTTAWA - Prime Minister Jean Chretien’s gam
ble for a place in Canadian history paid off Monday
as his Liberal Party appeared to have won a third
straight majority in nationwide elections, accord
ing to Canadian news organizations.
The Liberals won or had solid leads in more
than 160 of the races for the 301 seats in the House
of Commons, more than enough seats to guarantee
them a majority, according to projections by the
Canadian Broadcasting Corp. and the news agency
The news organizations said they based their
projections on official results coming across the
country of 30 million people.
The results were clearest in the more heavily
populated eastern Canada. Returns were still being
counted in much of central and western Canada.
The result appeared to reflect that Canadians
were enjoying an economic boom and looked for
ward to Liberal promises of $67 billion tax cuts over
five years. It also appeared that Canadians were
willing to forgive Chretien, 66, for calling the elec
tion just 31/2 years into his second five-year term.
Monday’s apparent outcome was similar to the
previous vote in 1997, when the Liberals won 155 of
the 301 House of Commons seats. The majorityvic
tory means Chretien will be the longest-serving
leader of the world's industrial powers when
President Clinton steps down in January.
It would also secure his legacy as one of only
three Liberal leaders able to deliver three straight
majority victories, something that even Pierre
Thideau was unable to do.
Trudeau s death in September, and the subse
quent emotional outpouring that boosted Liberal
support, contributed to Chretien’s decision to take
a chance with an early vote that could evoke a back
lash from voters.
He also wanted to prevent the newly formed
Canadian Alliance from gaining momentum in its
efforts to consolidate conservative support, and
needed to fend off moves within his own Liberal
Party to make him step aside.
Failure to win a majority would likely have
forced out Chretien as party leader in favor of heir
apparent Paul Martin, the finance minister who has
much greater personal popularity.
Regardless of the outcome, no change was
expected in Canada-U.S. relations.
The two countries form the world's largest two
way trade partnership, with Canada's economic
growth in recent years dependent on a similar
boom south of the border in the dominant U.S.
Voting ran smoothly in most areas, though
problems with voters lists occurred at some polling
stations. In Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, election offi
cer Bill Claire said some lists were missing entire
streets or buildings.
“Whole groups of people are simply not on the
list — people who have lived in Halifax and
Dartmouth for 40 years and have voted in five elec
tions," Claire said.
“Why it ended up in such a mess, I don’t know.”
Elections Canada spokesman Hal Doran noted
people left off voters lists could register at polling
stations. He said the problems were about the same
as other federal elections.
