D. Sullivan's paper, and steps were taken to secure an injunc- tion uguinst the Nation's publisher. The Court grunted the writ, but, nev- ertheless, the forbidden edition made its appearance this morning. It con- tains articles written by Bodkin, who j was acting as editor of the paper dur- ing the absence of William O'Brien and who was deposed by Parnell when be seized the paper on Wednesday The article ia addressed to O'Brien und calls to every true lover of Irelanc the world over, declaring the sole al- ternative now is "Parnell or home that home rale is impossible umter Parnell's leadership." The Parnell edition of the paper was issued from the regular office. It quotes a legal decision justifying the seizure of the paper by Parnell. A wagon loaded with copies of the anti-Parnell edition of the United Ireland was driven to the King's Bridge railway station to-day, it being intended to send them for distribution in the south of Ireland. As the wagon drew up at the station two men, one of whom had mask on his face, and the other with a drawn revolver, sprang upon the vehicle, and com- pelled the driver to proceed with his load to Island Bridge. Arriving there the two men flung all the papers into the Ufifey river.

There is great incitement here. It is said when the chiefs returned rorn the agency council, Two Strikes and his followers favored peace, but Kicking Bear, Short Bull and others, composing a majority of the camp, took a decided ground on the other side.
