Far Reaching Result of War.
Fresno, Cal., Sept. 21. The war be
tween Russia and Japan has had an
unforseen effect upon the raisin In
dustry of California, and the owners
of vineyards In this part of the state
have great difficulty to overcome the
complications arising from the lack of
Japantse crop pickers. Japanese are
almost exclusively used for picking
and sorting the grapes used in making
raisins. In former years there was
always an abundance of Japanese for
that work, but when the war broke
out so niat of the men returned to
Japan to se. ve in the army against the
Russians that Japanese help of any
kind became extremely scarce on the
coast. Now that the picking season
is on, the growers experience great
difficulty in securing the required
help for bringing in the harvest. The
Southern Pacific and the Santa Fe
railroads have been appealed to, to
allow reductions In the fare of labo;

come hero to work In the vineyards.
