ADVOCATES turning Elian Gonzalez into a political cause rather than condemn him to life in Communist Cuba presumably do not extend the same logic to hundreds of Chinese enduring unspeakable privation to reach these shores from Communist China. Immigration agents discovered 87 stowaways aboard six ships in West Coast ports from Jan. 2 to Jan. 10. Three immigrants died in one 8-foot by 40-foot container, with 15 survivors living beside the bodies.
