Respectably dressed men brawl in street

Fight in a Saloon – The Montreal Gazette Jun. 25, 1887

A free fight took place last night about 11 o’clock in a saloon on Chaboillez square among a crowd of respectably dressed young men. On being ejected they got up a series of scrimmages at the corner of Chaboillez street. A large crowd gathered and there was quite an exciting time for about ten minutes with the shouting and yelling of the combatants and the shouts of the police. When the fight was over and the young men separated two policemen came running down from the station.
