The entire session of the Steinhell murder trial yester day was taken up with an impassion ed plea by Advocate General Trouard for the conviction of the woman who Is charged with having killed her husband and her stepmother. The prosecutor showed neither pity nor mercy In his address to the Jury. He painted the accused woman In the blackest of colors--as a born liar, and as one whose whole life, before and after the crime. Justified the pre sumption of guilt. He developed the theory that after the rich and gener ous lover, Chouanard, abandoned her In 1907, Mme. Stelnheil realized she was almost at the end of her tether and that when she got Maurice Bor delol in her clutches she was determ ined to hold him even at the price of murder. Insist Story Is Myth. The prosecution Insisted that Mme. Stelnhell's story that burglars com mitted thp crime was a myth; and he undertook to reconstruct the scenes that actually happened, claim ing that while the accused woman and her accomplices were tying Mme. Japy, M. Stelnheil was aroused by the noise and Jumped out of bed. Thereupon they attacked and killed him and, returning to Mms. Japy's room, found her in a bad fright. M. Truard Rlolle undertook to ac count for the stopping of the clock In the Stelnheil home after the mur der, advancing the theory that Mme. Steinhell In her anguish could not en dure the ticking. An expert testified during the trial that the clock had been stopped by hand as It was being wound up. The argument of M. Thnuard Ulolle left the Impression that the testimony upon which it was based was too New York, Nov. 13.
