Water- mart contended that the attempt, to compel a person to borrow money to ml to another does not constitute an attempt to rob. The motion lor Usinissal was denied.

As Mme. SteinbellK counsel, M Auliin. yet to be heard, doubt has arisen whether the ease will go to the Jury tomorrow. fhe prosecutor showed neither pity nor mercy In his address to tlie Jury. ffo painted the accused woman In the blackest colors as h born liar and one whose whole life, before and after the crime. Justified the pr" timption of guilt. lie developed the theory that alter the rich and geper ous lover, Chouanard, abandoned her In 1907. Mme. Steirih i realized she was almost at the end of her tether. and that when she got Maurice B"f derel In her clutch, s. she was deter mined to hold him even at the price of murder. The prosecutor st.ite.t that Mme. Steinhfll's storv that burglars com mitted the crime was a myth, and he undertook to reconstruct the scenes thnt actually happened, claiming that while the S'cused w.,man and her sc- eomplires were lieing Mme Japy.

Throughout the day Mme. Stein heil seemed terribly depressed. Not once did she Interrupt the proceedings though frequently she clenched her fists and showed signs of anger when the prosecutor made particularly odi ous insinuations against her. It Is understood thnt at the conclusion of M. Alibin'R uddrew. Mnie. Steinheil In tends to address the Jury In her own behalf. This would make a dramatic climax and It Is expected would have a powerful influence on the Jury, which Is reported to be evenly di vided. Tw o things must be remembered In connection wilh a French verdict. First, the majority vote prevails, the foreman of the Jury having two voles If there be a tic; second, the Jurors are not cnnlincd but are permuted to return to their homes at night, where they are subjected to the pos sible influence of their wives It Is notorious that whereas a majority of (he men here favor the acquittal ol Mme. steinheil, the women almost unanimously believe she Is guilty Mme. Steinheil Is being deluged with letters of every character, many of them containing oft'.is of marriage If she is acquitted. Fntcrprising the atrical managers are Irving to ar range for her Immediate appearance on the stage niter her release, one having offered $2,000 for thirty ap pearances, Mme.
