Charlie Hutchinson and Claude Osborne are

“A nice state of affairs in Warsaw. This from the News: We regret to observe the inefficiency of our officers whose duty is to keep the peace and order in our town. Fighting, drunkenness, drunken revelers, hooping and yelling in the streets day and night, swearing, gambling, and in fact, nearly all manner of vice, seems to be carried on boldly and unmolested. We are told that we have gamblers and cut-throats in our midst who would scarcely hesitate to rob and murder when an opportunity was offered.” Courier-Journal, January 21, 1871
