Raise A Ruction

from Maine Lingo: Boiled Owls, Billdads, & Wazzats by John Gould

Raise A Ruction: To start a fuss, by one person or by several. Tax bills come out, and everybody raises a ruction. Ruction usually suggests a big stew over some small matter, or at least a matter that will not be altered much by the ruction. Some scholarly authorities think ruction may be Maine for insurrection.
