A Republican Party committee mistakenly sent fund-raising letters to 30 foreign embassies, including China's, seeking $5,000 donations, a party spokesman said Friday. Mike Russell of the Republican Senatorial Campaign Committee said the letters were sent by an outside mailing company hired by the party. "We have different vendors doing different projects. This was an obvious mail vendor problem," he said. It is illegal for foreigners to make contributions to U.S. political campaigns.

This is a tale of hotlines. It is the story of how America tried in recent days to solve its deep-rooted problems with China through a phone call--and discovered that modern communications don't necessarily mean you can make any connection in Beijing.

These days North Koreans cross the river in the opposite direction, into China, to escape the repressive Stalinists who have brought devastation and periodic famines on their country. The refugees create a political problem for Beijing, but one it can resolve even as it helps bring peace to the region.

On a cloudless day near the top of the world, Swiss tourist Claude Balsiger had just finished a late-morning cup of tea and stepped out onto the streets of Tibet's capital. Buddhist monks had been marching against Chinese rule all week, but today seemed calmer.

Driving her Toyota into a filling station not long ago, a Washington woman was surprised to find about 50 Asian men crowding its pavement, some armed with cameras. As she hefted a self-service hose and pumped $5 of regular unleaded, they moved close, snapped photos and watched her every move with fascination. Who were they?
