Because without the accent, the ia forms a diphthong resulting in the syllabification mos-tra-ria or e-cha-ria, and then the default stress would be on the tra or cha syllable instead of on the i. Accents can also break up diphthongs when the weak vowel is also the stressed one, which is the case in verbs in the conditional tense.
