Deer Lodge IDAHO ! WYOMING I ! 200 miles ! i i : THE ASSOCIATED PRESS SALT LAKE CITY A first-time mother said Sunday that she tried to delay giving birth until after an agitated gunman carrying 18 pounds of dynamite gave up his siege of the hospital's maternity wing. But Christan Downey, 22, had her baby during the 18-hour standoff Saturday. Her new daughter became the ninth hostage of Richard Worthington, police said. He is accused of fatally shooting a nurse when he stormed the Women's Health Center at Alta View Hospital in Sandy, 15 miles south of Salt Lake City. "She was almost born, but I managed to prolong it for about four hours," Downey said at a news conference at another hospital. With her was the baby's father, Adam Cisneros, 20, who also was held captive. Worthington, 39, released his hostages unharmed and surrendered late Saturday. He was being held Sunday. He had stormed the health center apparently looking to kill a doctor who he said had operated on his wife two years ago without his permission, police said. Shortly after the siege began, Worthington had held a gun to Downey's belly while ordering Cisneros to brave police snipers and retrieve a package hidden in bushes hidden outside the hospital, witnesses said. Cisnero did it; the package turned out to be the bomb. Two nurses helped Downey give birth on the floor of what Worthington said was a booby-trapped doctor's office. mmm JJ ,1 f . -mm, f ; The Associated PressGeorge Frey Christan Downey holds daughter Caitlin, born during an 18-hour hospital siege. The Cincinnati Asssoclated Prass six Montana prisoners on death row. Gov. Stan Stephens said he didn't know how many of the cell-block's 68 inmates were involved. The unit had seven guards, but two in a control booth escaped. The cellblock is in a building separate from the main prison, Stephens said. Prison officials had established communications with the inmates, who asked to talk to reporters but were refused, said Curt Chisholm, state corrections officer. McCormick denied the prisoners made the request and said the only demand he recalled was for prison guards to be moved away from the outside of the building.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS DEER LODGE, Mont. - Five inmates were killed and e'wh in jured Sunday in a disturbance at a Montana Mate Prison, an official said. Five guards taken hostage for four hours were freed unharmed when a tactical unit stormed the maximum-security cellblock. Warden Jack McCormick said the inmates died before the special teain regained control. He said it hadn't been determined how the prisoners died, but that no weapons were found. He said inmates were seen and heard beating other inmates. Members of the tactical unit fired tear gas but only one gunshot, and it didn't strike anyone, McCormick said. The warden said the dead and four of the injured were being held in protective custody because they had informed on other prisoners or had been threatened. McCormick said he didn't know how or why the disturbance happened. He said the 55 inmates who weren't killed or injured would have to be moved temporarily. Those in the cellblock included the Tom Harkin Bill Clinton '92 race finally shapes up Democrats try on labels, talk tough BY JOHN KING The Associated Press LOS ANGELES The first big event of the Democratic presidential sweepstakes gave the race some early ideological and thematic lines and brought some vigor to a party that still faces formidable odds but finally appears ready to take aim at President Bush. Among the b""""" rtrTom Analysis Harkin and Ar- kansas Gov. Bill Clinton were clear winners after the Democratic National Committee's weekend meeting in California. Harkin set the tone of Saturday's candidate parade with a biting, sarcastic assault on Bush and the Republicans. For Clinton, the appearance was a chance to make appeals to the liberal constituencies who dominate the nominating process even as he offered himself as the moderate alternative to Harkin. Count former Sen. Paul Tson-gas of Massachusetts as a winner, too. He still is given long odds in his quest for the nomination, but in a speech that was both pointed and poignant he won admiration from his audience if not support. Recalling how cancer brought him to the verge of death, he said the scare made him realize the shortsightedness of today's "gen-erationally immoral" politics. Nebraska Sen. Bob Kerrey skipped the meeting to save his thunder for his formal announcement next week, but aides think the perfect spot for Kerrey is between Harkin and Clinton, trying to attract both liberals and moderates. In the second tier of candidates, Tsongas is promoting himself as a pro-business liberal. Virginia Gov. L. Douglas Wilder is the moderate, mixing his appeals to black and women voters with tough talk .about cutting billions from the federal budget. All of the candidates project themselves as outsiders disgusted " with a gridlocked federal government, and former California Gov. Edmund G. Brown Jr. easily is the furthest out of the bunch. He served notice that his will be no conventional candidacy, but instead a campaign against politics itself. With all the excitement, perhaps it was easy for the Democrats to forget that Bush remains enormously popular. But, as New Hampshire Democratic Chairman Chris Spirou put :it: "You can't win if you don't fight, and at least now we're fighting." .
