 for ROUT
From Bouvier's Law Dictionary, Revised 6th Ed (1856) :

  ROUT, crim. law. A disturbance of the peace by persons assembled together 
  with an intention to do a thing, which, if executed, would have made them 
  rioters, and actually making a motion towards the execution of their 
       2. It generally agrees in all particulars with a riot, except only in 
  this, that it may be a complete offence without the execution of the 
  intended enterprise. Hawk. c. 65, s. 14; 1 Russ. on Cr. 253; 4 Bl. Com. 140; 
  Vin. Abr. Riots, &c., A 2 Com. Dig. Forcible Entry, D 9.
