ITALIAN COUNT IN TORONTO COURT Toronto Sept. 20.-Carlo Attapani, who claims to be an Italian count received his trial at the sessions -to- day on the charge of an unnatural offense against three small boys. Apart from the evidence -of'the. boys only', medical evidence as to 'the me- ntal condition of the prisoner was taken.

The trip up the river was a-triumphal one. -The Grand Republic was greet- ed with the shrieks of hundreds of small and large crafte that dotted the river. Dr. Cook standing the upper deck received the ovation in virtual silence, except for a. brief moment, when he talked to the par- ty on board.
