Recently mention was made in this column of the case of a naturalised Russian named Ostrovski, who was in a predicament regarding the return of his wife and family from Port Said, whither they had proceeded whilst he (Ostrovski) went to Paris to be subjected to an operation. For nearly twelve months he has been trying to "raise the wind" to bring them back, but, unfortunately for him, the operation of the local immigration scheme does not apply to ports like Port Said, and the department can do nothing for him. It will probably be twelve months or more, he says, before he will be able to pay for the transport unless he can get someone to finance it. He has appealed to us to ascertain whether there is a society in existence to assist in such cases, but we do not know of one. Sunday Times, 5 July 1914, page 15.

Fremantle Police Court. Dismissed.-- On the complaint of Christopher Craig, Sam Raemman and Iseck Ostrovski were called to answer a charge of unlawful assault. Both pleaded not guilty. Complainant said that on Saturday last he was standing on the corner of Henry and High streets when his dog and an animal belonging to Ostrovski commenced to fight. He endeavoured to separate the animals, and was attacked by defendants, who punched and kicked him, breaking his hat and leaving marks on his face and body. Fred. Jose, an artilleryman, gave evidence in corroboration. The police evidence showed that the complainant and his witness were drunk and the Bench dismissed the case.
