Appeal from the United States District Court for the District of Maryland, at Baltimore.

Melvin Hill, Appellant Pro Se.

D.Md.

DISMISSED.

Before ERVIN, Chief Judge, and RUSSELL and WIDENER, Circuit Judges.

PER CURIAM:

1

Melvin Hill seeks to appeal the district court's order refusing habeas corpus relief pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254 (1988). Our review of the record and the district court's opinion discloses that this appeal is without merit. Accordingly, we deny a certificate of probable cause to appeal and dismiss the appeal on the reasoning of the district court. Hill v. Ward, No. CA-92-2348-H (D. Md. Sept. 11, 1992). We dispense with oral argument because the facts and legal contentions are adequately presented in the materials before the Court and argument would not aid the decisional process.

DISMISSED
