3/3/2021 4:31 PM Oblitzki, matches the name of his brother in column 16
Occupation butcher
3/4/2021 8:09 AM Ancestry has one Baltimore arrival record and one Hamburg Departure record.
The person Indexed on Ancestry, arriving in Baltimore aboard the SS Russia with a departure date of June 4, 1893 was misread by the person doing the indexing as Ollitsky. The name is quite clear to me as Oblitksy, both in the passenger name and in the destination name. (On this arrival list, every page except his has June 4 as the departure date. His page has 3/6 1893)

The passenger on The Hamburg departure list of June 4, 1893 is indexed as Ablitzky. This is the same person. It looks to me to be correctly indexed, but probably mis-heard by the clerk who wrote out the manifest.
