TlTALLMIEWOl Reports Prevail in Butte That Mines Will Be Generali}' Closed by Saturday. Special to The Daily Tribune— Butte, Dec. 0.—Reports prevail that by Saturday night of this week practical i.v every copper, zinc and lead mine in Butte will have been closed down for the present season. This action it it does really result is said to be due to the low price now existing for copper and the lack of demand for the product of the mines. Several weeks ago the zinc a.ines quit producing due to the lack of demand for zinc, and with the recent ' closing of large manufacturing plants in the eoht the demand for copper and zinc is said have grown considerably less. For the last few weeks some of the larger mines iiave been closing at regular intervals, mine workers having been laid off at the rate of about 500 at a time At present it does not seem possible that the mines in Butte will be operating again until there is general demand for metals at prices that are at least great ly advanced over the present market.
