Drunk and Disorderly in DeKalb County in 1916

From the April, 6, 2016 MidWeek (DeKalb County, Illinois) "Looking Back)

1916, 100 years ago.

"It was current about the streets on Monday that 15 men had been arrested for being drunk and disorderly on Sunday evening.  The facts are that only three were arrested.

They were a couple of Russian shoemakers and a friend said to have come from Freeport.

They engaged in a fight in the rooms of some of the men upstairs in the neighborhood of the Rothengast barbershop.  One of them was seriously bruised.

Wonder if the Russians were spreading Marxist sayings?
