On Aug. 11, 1898, the Lawrence Journal reported: ``About 3 o'clock this morning the police of the city and the sheriff and his force made a raid on the bad houses in the east part of town, and 3 joints were cleaned out....A large quantity of beer was captured in the 3 joints, which are also tough houses harboring all kinds of vice.''
