To the Banner.
At the residence of Mrs. M. Gordon,
last night, was one of the most fash
ionable weddings that has occurred in
the colored circles for some time. The
contracting parties were Miss Hattie
L. Gordon and Mr. Wm. 0. Tate. The
bride wore a handsome nun's-veiling
dress (en train) with oversklrt of the
same trimmed with Spanish lace, white
satin corsage, orange blossoms and
tulle, with ornaments of pearls. The
groom was In full evening dress. All
the young people were in full dress,
and many of the older ones. The
bride and groom are both well known
society-goers. . The bride has been a
belle in society ever since her debut,
three years ago. Mr. Tate was not
