    • The Syracuse Herald, of last week says: "Detective Harvey went to Cleveland, Oswego county, and brought John Houser to this city on a charge of false pretenses, made by Simon Lowenthal. Mr. Lowenthal alleges that Houser bought a bill of liquors amounting to $149.93 on the representation that he owned a house and lot. He pleaded not guilty, and is held for trial. [3]
    • The Syracuse Standard sayd: - "In the fore part of June, a warrant was sworn out by Simon Lowenthall, of this city, for John Houser, of Cleveland, Oswego county, for obtaining money under false pretenses. The warrant was issued by Justice Mulholland and placed in the hands of Detective Harvey, who brought the prisoner to this city. Houser was arraigned on Tuesday, June 18th, on the charge. On Saturday last, legal documents were served on Justice Mulholland and Detective Harvey for false imprisonment. The object is probably to bulldoze our officers, but they are barking up the wrong tree for that. [4]
    • It will be remembered that about two years ago, John Houser was apprehended by a deputy sheriff from Syracuse, and taken to that city, on a warrant sworn out by A. Lowenthal, an extensive dealer in liquors, who charged Houser with obtaining goods under false pretenses, and Houser was subsequently put under bail to answer. But it never came to trail. It was evident there was no bottom to the charge, and the move was made to try and scare a poor man into paying what he unable to at that time. Houser took counsel in the matter, and was advised to bring suit against all the parties who had put him to the trouble. Accordingly, action for $1,500 damages was begun against Lowenthal, Justice-Mullholland, and the deputy. The matter was postponed several times, the defendants not being anxious to come to trial, as their case was no case at all, and they appeared anxious to settle. Finally the lawyers on both sides manged to fix things, and last Thursday the matter was fully settled. They paid all of Houser's costs, his lawyer's foes gave him back the notes amounting to $65, and a receipt in full. The affair probably cost the parties nearly $300. [5]

    • According to the 1875 census, a wagon shop exists directly next to the Houser home. It is assumed that this may be his shop, which was valued at $300. [6]

    • [Edward] Tasker is negotiating for the purchase of the building where Houser has his shop. [8]
