Additional Information: 

The phrase "Hey Rube" is an old carnival term meaning there was a physical confrontation between locals and the carnival folk. If "Hey Rube!" was called out it meant there was trouble and assistance was needed right away.

A great source for Carnival terminology is Sideshow World.
