FOURTH OF JULY BATTLE
1$i.twm:n Knnxcii Canadian Hay-
MAKE1W ANll AMUMCAN UaVTSMUN.
tThb omaiNAi. or tut: tiiouum:.
A Maine correspondent of the
Boston Herald writes: Usually
early in July of each year, but, at
any' rale, just prior to tho haying
season in Maine, the French Cana
dians of the province of Quebec
begin their pilgrimage into this
stale. They conic over the "Can
ada road," singly, in pairs or in
quite large companies, and they seek
employment as makers and harvest
ers of hay. They liavcl, at least
much the larger poilion of llicni do,
on two-wheeled carts (a t-ort of
8piinglcss car, indigenous to the
country its owner hails from) and
"buckboards." Usually they drive
one horse to a conveyance; very
seldom will you perceive two cquines
hitched to the latter. Sometimes
one animal w ill draw half a dozen
persons on a "buckboard." The
loads average, however, perhaps
three individuals. The men, of
course, arc the most numerous, but
there are enough women and chil
dren to make things interesting.
The various individuals and families
of a locality travel in groups ; that
is, their horses and vehicles will
sometimes form a procession of a
dozen to twenty turnouts. Each
conveyance is loaded with, besides
its human freight and the latter's
personal effects, a tenting and cook
ing equipage in fact, a complete
camping outfit, and, generally, also
with a considerable quantity of
"white whiskey," the latter in bot
tles or jugs, as things maj' be.
Frequently two or three cases of the
whiskey, a doucn bottles to the case,
are concealed among the luggage on
the vehicles, and the owners of it
have, it is asseitcd, no trouble in
getting it over the border without
hvving to pay duty thereon. Some
of the Canadians come over the road
into Maine afoot, but those who
adopt this means of making the
journey are comparatively few in
number. All, both pedestrians and
their more fortunate compatriots on
wheels, are prcpnied to "camp out"
and "rough it," wherever and when
ever it may be necessary so to do.
They form motley appearing pro
cessions and picturesque camping
parties. The farmers along the
road are applied to for work in the
hay fields, and, that secured, the
Frenchmen "and their sisters and
their cousins and their aunts" faith
fully and industriously perform the
duties allotted to them, stay as long
as lequired (generally a couple of
weeks, and then, with the proceeds in
their pockets, trudgo back to their
homes in Quebec. A few stay per
haps a month or two longer, going
from one hayfield to another, staying
until the hay is harvested, and then
doing odd jobs at other occupations.
But they, too, eventually, find their
way back to Canada, and take their
money there along with them. The
Frenchmen get from SI. 50 to SI. 75
per day haying, their women folk
and children, of course, being paid
a lesser rate. Some of the men arc
employed at $20 to S25 per month,
on farms where there is a great deal
of hay to be made. Of the amounts
paid them for their work, whatever
they may be, the Frenchmeu aic
credited with spending scarcely a
shilling. They live very frugally;
have no house rent or board 'to pay,
and can thus keep their harvest earn
ings practically intact. A cake of
maple sugar and a loaf of black
bread for themselves, and the grass
along the roadside for their horses,
are said to furnish the necessaiy
means of subsistence for the Cana
dian harvest parties.
TIIK VOUKTII OF JULY BATTLE.
It appears that on Independence
day a gang of river drivers, under
one Jonas S. Longley, a well-known
river "boss," or "head man," as he
is called in these parts, who -for
several days had been at work on n
big jam of logs in the Kennebec at
and in the vicinity of "the Forks,"
about fifty miles from here, were
allowed a holiday. The boys, by
some means or other nnd early in
the day, becamoprctty "happy' and
the idea having been broached, they
proceeded to hunt up Frenchmen.
The latter were then coming down
the "Canada road" in swarms for
the hay harvesting, and apparently,
or at least bo the day's developments
went to show, they all had pretty
good stocks of whiskey in their
vehicles. There were, perhnps,
twenty-five men in the river drivers'
paity. They stationed themselves
on the road in the vicinity of their
camp, some tluee miles below "the
Forks," and stopped tho French
men as the latter made their appear,
ance. At first the drivers paid for
tho whiskey they took, but, finally,
that method beeamo somewhat irk
some, and they proceeded to take
what they wanted of it by force,
rendering no equivalent therefor in
money. Tho haymakers attempted
to defend their property, and tho
consequence was a number of free
lights, in which the men from
jummjJLMjmiwvfiii. hf w mammmmmammmmmmmmmmm ", ,i 'jam wi ,i,'iMaw i

.iij i ---'
crazy from the offcols of the liquor
which they had drunk, tho river men
attacked every Canadian' who at
tempted to pass them, overturned
their "buckboards'' and carts nnd be
haved outrngcously In other respects
Thcio was a constant succession of
.fights all day longj and in every one
of them the Frenchmen were whip
ped. All soits of rumors as to tlw
casualitics inflicted upon cither side
went up and down the liver, and
gicat excitement prevailed through
out the viholc liver country. About
!) o'clock in the ovening, a party of
Fieiichmcti, twenty or thhly strong,
drove up to "Tho Forks" hotel, and
were infoimcd of tho state of affairs
below. They said they would go
down the river to their destination
whosoever tried to slop them from
doing so. Thereupon they provided
themselves with clubs and other
weapons and resumed their journey.
When they reached tho log-drivers,
they were summoned to halt, and
the horse of the leader of the pro
cession was grabbed by tho head by
one of tho drivers, named Padhain.
Two of the latter's companions stood
by him to render a helping hand
when the time came. The driver of
tho waggon, one Roderick, did not1,
however, act as had been expected
of him. He jumped from tho vehicle,
and whacking Padham over the
head with a loaded Whip, laid that
individual out stiff nnd cold. Ho
and his nearest companions then
turned their attention to Padham's
assistants, and they, too, were
"knockod out." Then tho whole
party of Frenchmen took a hand in
tho affray, and in a very brief time
tho log-drivers were "on the run,"
with the enemy alter them. After
a short chase of the dispersed foe
the Frenchmen returned to their
waggons and again took Up their
journey, and, perhaps, it is needless
to istatc, they did so this time with
out fear of (molestation. That ended
the fighting of 'July 4. Padham and
two or three of his' associates in the
day's battles were pretty badly used
up during several days, and he was
in a serious condition during that
time. However, he is now out
again, and so, it is said, aro his
wounded companions. Not half a
dozen of the log-drivers wcro much
hurt. Perhaps tho same number of
Frenchmen were more or less bruised
and otherwise injured during the
whole day's fighting nonciof them,
however, very seriously. They lost
a big quantity of whiskey though,
and their vehicles were, some of
them, at least, a good deal damaged.
On the morning following the
Fourth, Sunday, by the way, about
8 o'clock, another party of French
men approached the house of one
Jonathan, otherwise "Jock" Bean,
about two miles below "the Forks,"
and, consequently, about a mile
above the log drivers' camp. The
haymakers were going down stream,
and there wcro several of the riyer
men in the road, near the scene of
the previous day's hostilities. Mr.
Bean and his sons, of whom there
aro four or five, have a reputation
for animosity toward French-Canadians.
The father was known to
certain of the party coming down
the road, and when he appeared on
the little lawn in front oj his house,
he was recognized by them. The
travellers had evidently heard of the
fracas of the "Glorious Fourth,"
and were prepared for trouble.
They stepped in front of Bean's
house and viewed the drivers sta
tioned farther down the highway.
Bean stepped forward, it is claimed,
to tell them that he thought they
need not fear an attack below, and
received in answer to his reassuring
statement to that 'effect, a volley of
Btoncs from the Frenchmen who did
not understand what ho said, and,
probably put him down as an enemy
about to attack on principle. Their
proceeding brought out of tho house
twoOr three of tho old man's sons
and a woman, according to one ac
count, his wife, and, according to
another, the wife of one of his boys,
and. there was soon a pretty little
battle raging in his front yard.
During its progress one of the Beans,
finding, his party getting worsted,
wont into the house after a gun, and.
with the latter lodged two or three
good sized shot in the back of ono
of the Frenchmen, one "Joe" Baker
by name. That stopped that fight,
and tho "Kanucks" withdrew their
forces, carrying off their wounded
as they did so. Baker's wounds
wcro not serious, and none of tho
other contestants in tho affray were
very badly hurt, although they man
aged to produce quite a respectable
showing of bloody noses, "black
eyes," etc., among them. Com
plaint was made by tho Canadians
against tho Beans at Skowhegan,
and a sheriff went up from that
point and arrested Jonathan, Mary,
Mauley and Hosea Bean, The ac
cused were brought to Skowhegan
for n hearing on tho criminal charge
of assault, and were severally held
in bonds of S500 for trial at tho
Septcmbpr term qt the Supremo
Judicial Court. Civil suit was also
brought against JopaUian, Manloy
and Uosca Bean. In the criminal
case, tho necessary bonds were fur
nished by tho Recused parties, und
3 they wcro severally discharged, In
tho civil suit, Ihoy took tho "noor
debtor's oath" and wero liberated.
Ma'ry Bean is tho wife of Jonathan.
Tho Frenchmen claimed In court that
they wero first attacked by the Bean
family, and that they fought only in
losing his eyesight,
