Prominent Couple Wed.
A telegraphic communication from
Toledo, Ohio, to yesterday’s Oregonian
announces the engagement of Louisa
Frances Niles of Toledo to Samuel
Gates of Hillsboro. The marriage
will occur Saturday and both will leave
immediately for Portland.

college chum and fraternity brother of
Charles Niles, a brother of the bride.
On a visit he met the sister. Later
Charles was drowned while canoeing
and Mr. Gates went to the funeral,
and spent several days, and the
romance culminates with the marriage
