NYC MAYORAL CANDIDATE SPEAKS OF SECRET YANKEE DEAL

          New York City Mayoral candidate Ruth Messinger
     yesterday charged that Mayor Rudy Giuliani and Yankees Owner
     George Steinbrenner have struck a "secret deal" that would
     commit $1.1B in public funds to a new Yankee Stadium on
     Manhattan's West Side, according to Susan Rubinowitz of the
     N.Y. POST.  Messinger "contended the pact is being kept
     quiet until after" next month's election.  Although
     Messinger admitted she had "no proof," she said that "over
     and over again, we have heard there is a secret deal." 
     Steinbrenner's spokesperson Howard Rubenstein "denied"
     Messinger's charge of any pending deal (N.Y. POST, 10/17).
