Washington Outlook: CAPITAL WRAPUP

THE ADMINISTRATION

The Energy Dept. is jealous that Commerce Secretary Ronald H. Brown is hogging so much media attention as the Administration's top rainmaker for U.S. business. So, not to be outdone by Brown's recent high-profile trip to China, Energy officials are going all out to publicize a Sept. 21-25 trip to Pakistan by Energy Secretary Hazel R. O'Leary. She'll lead a group of 70 American businesspeople on a visit that's expected to produce some $3 billion worth of deals--everything from power-plant equipment to solar energy systems. "O'Leary should get credit for doing something similar to Brown," insists one Energy staffer.EDITED BY OWEN ULLMANN
