IBS CHICAGO PLAYHOUSES. POOR BUSINESS AT MOST OT THE THEATRES. Chicago, April 24. Hooley's and the Chicago Opera House have done a capital business business during tbe laat week, but the other big playhouses have had rather light patronage. At Hooley'e, Roalna Yoke's and her London Comedy Company bareTeen the attraction, playing a triple bill to very large bouses. Tha engagement lasts a month, and bids fair to be one of the most successful of the Chicago season. Tbe coming week Miss Yokes will be seen in "Th Schoolmistress" At the Chicago Opera House "The Black Hussar" has been given by the McCauil Comie Opera Company to houses tilling tbe theatre to the doors.
