graveyard In question had been dedi?
cated aiid-set apart as a burial-place for
a period boyond whloh the memory ot
man runneth not to tho contrary, and
that the dofendunts had no right to In?
terfere with the samo In any rannnor.
An Injunction was granted by Judge
Mullen, enjoining end restraining tho de?
fendants from further Interfering with
or trespassing upon said graveyard and

D. S. Baum, a Well-Known Butcher,
Heavily Fined end Sent to Jail for
Attempting to Shoot a
Rival Butcher.? ?
(Special to The Timee-Dlspatoh.)
NORFOLK, VA., May 2.~Tlie Public
Lodger publishes a statement of the ne?
gotiations for the purchase of Its plant
by the Dispatch, Whioh failed. The state
ment is to the effect that a representa?
tive of the latter paper began negotiations
with the former In February, and finally
failed to comply with the terms on April
80th, and that, thoroforo, the consolida?
tion of the two afternoon papers Is not
accomplished. Tho charter Issued on tho
last of March was morely In anticipation
of tho consolidation, and was Issued nt
that time because of tho expiration of the
law under which a charter could uo grant?
ed by tho Corporation Court. Charters
now must be granted by the State Cor
poratloh Commissioners. Tho Ledger
makes no explanation of the failure, but
tho obvious presumption is that tho neces?
sary money for the purchase of tho Lcdg
or woe not subscribed by the syndicate
which proposed to buy. There is an ac?
companying statement, mudo on the
street, that tho condition ot the money
and stock market In New York during the
recent depression there has mndo the pro?
moter's huslness exceedingly dull. It Is
difficult' to obtain capital for any other
thun the legitimate demands of trade.
D. S. Baum, a prominent butcher, was
fined ?100, sentenced to jail for thirty days,
put under bpnd ofJS.OOOrto keep tho peace,
and aent ori to the grand Jury on the
chargo of on attempt to shoot Samuel
Marx, another butchor, by Justice Taylor,
of tho Police Court, this morning. The
men wero business rivals. Baum alleged
that Marx was getting business that Baum
should havo, and that Marx had threat?
ened his life. .When tho men met In the
market yesterday Baum drew his pistol
and snapped It three times at his rival.
The rival says that, bolng,tho man before,
tho gun, ho ran. The gun meantime did
not explode, and tho parties obtained cross
warrants for assault../The charges against
Marx wero dismissed and those against
Baum wero appealed tp,,,thq; .Corporation
Court. As both .tnen?. are .'well" known in
tho city," as contractors for meat and other
supplies to vessels In the harbor, tho
quarrel and the attempt to shoot havo
caused a great sensation.- The heavy sen?
tence Is due to Baum's own statements
In tho court. Ho said he carried tho pls
lol for protection and because ho had
heard that Marx had made threats against
his life. .??-'
C. P.. Lewis was not sentenced by Judge
Hanckel, of tho Corporation Court, this
morning with the other prisoners who
have been found guilty. This waa at the
request of ; the prisoner, who seems to
prefer to r?m?ttVhore'lty'Jail,.rather than
go to the penitentiary, to .begin serving
the sentendo'ofthrao y"ea'rs >onstrt'e Convic?
tion for abducting young Myrtle Joyner,
Ho has been deferring ino sentence on
ono and another plea for several months.
The plea this morning was that he wished
the sentence pronounced In the presence
of his attorney. Judge Hanckel 1? will?
ing to humor thp man, because he Is
merely prolonging his own term of im?
prisonment by staying in Jail. He will
not get any credit on the term In the pen?
itentiary by staying In the jail here,
Lewis Is well known in" Richmond because
of the active part he took In the affairs
of one of the Methodist churches thero,
He was tried., on??* several ? charges),hero,
but. they ??1G?3?<?6,? ?onvlctlon;..'afteir tho

temporary pastor of Calvary Baptist
Church, Portsmouth, for two years, will
