A. Klose, president of the Columbia
Brick Works, which has a factory at
Hogan, IS miles' from Portland, com
plains to the public service commission
that the Portland Railway, Light &
Power company is putting his factory
out of busin?as by jumping the freight
rate on brick and tile.
He says tiat on January 1 the rate
was increased from two cents per 100
pounds on brick or tile shipped from
Hogan to East Portland to two and a
half eents, and that on September 16
it was increased further to three cants
per 100 pounds.
"We are informed that wood and
other commodities were not raided 15
per cent on January 1," he says. 'They
only picked out our factory and raised
us. This rah? of three cents per 100
pounds on our products is prohibitive
and practically puts us out of business
as we cannot compete with other yards
near Portland that pay no freight."

Mellette Visits Cambrai
Entering Cambrai last night I saw
notices on tho walls ordering evacua
tion of the city at midnight Tuesday.
Tho inhabitants were permitted to re
move only what they could carry. All
importable things were left at the town
hall, under tho protection of the Ger
man authorities, though no liability
was assumed for their safety.
Investigation of the first 3 or 20
houses revealed Vin' all h"d been loot
ed completely. The cathedral, used as
observation post by the enemy, had
been badly shelled. The tower-appeared
ready to fall. The figure of the
Virgin atop tlio tower, however, was
undamaged. Twenty fires could be
seen along tho Btrect leading toward
the centerjiof the city. In somo of tho
burning houses the windows were still
unbroken, indicating tho destruction
was the result of deliberate arson and
German Plans Upset
The taking of Cambrai badly upsot
tli o German plans for retirement. They
had been seeking to maintain a gradu
al withdrawal astride tho city, the
defenses of which had made it almost
tho strongest point anywhere in the
line. This explains yesterday's despcr
ato counter attack with captured Brit
ish tanks. It was broken up with anti
tank guns which the British had cap
tured from the Germans.-
Holding Cambrai, the Germans ex
pected to spend two weeks retiring to
ward Douai and an equal length of
time reaching the Guiz defense line
along the Oise.
Infantry is Unopposed
Because of this pivot's importance,
it was expected that tho enemy would
resist to their utmost on the lino of
towns and villages behind Cambrai.
While British cavalry was operat
ing well to the eastward of Bertr
(four miles west of LeCateau) infan
try marched through tho village in
column formation. It was one of the
most remarkable sights of the war and
has scarcely been duplicated since the
Germans first overran Belgium.
