-Selig SOLOMON, who a few weeks ago was arrested by state officials for cutting timber on state land, had his hearing at Harrisville, last week, and was discharged, there being no proof to sustain the charge. (15 Aug 1901)

-Selig SOLOMAN, suspected of being a near millionaire, came before the board of review this morning to protest that he does not live in Detroit and is therefore non-assessable. The board showed Solomon his own statement of assessable property which he recently turned in to the assessors. In that Solomon give his residence as Detroit and claimed to have only $36,000 worth of property. The board doubted this small amount, hence Solomon's summons today. He declared his home was in Oscoda. He was informed that his house in that place had been rented to another man and asked if it wasn't true that he maintained a house in Detroit. "True," said Solomon, "but I keep it for my boy." Solomon kicked hard. The corporation counsel was summoned to read the law to him and he was assessed at $50,000, which he declared he would fight to the last ditch. - Detroit News. (7 May 1908)
