At last the new American drama entitled "One Hundred Wives" has beeD presented to the theatre-going people of Milwaukee. The inaugural performance at the grand opera house was well attended, the audience being critical in the extreme. This play resembles that styled " The Danites," bul it is a better production, being broader in its ideas, and more instructive, while equally humorous. It contains thegreat essenMs of a firstclass drama- a good plot and tragic, pathetic and comic situations. Furthermore it is one of the very few good American plays that our people have before them. While its scènes would be effecüve aud attractive if in other country, they are intensely interesting because they aie nothing more than every-day realities at home. Comprehensive pictures of Mormon life and Mormon crimes are afforded, interspersed with those mining scènes which are always enjoyable. In the play known as " The Danites" Mormonismis brought out meagerlyand incidentally. In "One Hundred Wives" it is the central point the axis upon which the various thrilling passages turn. The acting of the Gosche - Hopper compauy is excellent throughout In fact it is due the management to say that a better tulanced theatncal organization is seldom met with, and the seenery is in itself an entertainment. The intrigue and evil deeds of the Mormon church, the the loathsomeness of their social life, the delusions to which innocent women become victims and their subsequent wrongs and remorse are all artistically reproducet by the eompany.-
