His Friends Say that Mr. Unpton'i Attitude will Benefit the Republicans. The friends of Mr. Mihone assert that Mr. Langston demanded of tbem such terms to secure his support of the ticket in Virginia that the/ eonld not in honor accept them. This is all they will say as to the conference at Peters burg. As to the effect of Mr. Lanps ton's taking no part in the state canvass they speak more plainly. They say it will be a benefit to Ma hono. Their purpose is. they say, to disprove the assertion of the democrats that the republican party is a negro party. They want to prove that it is a white man's party. The negroes have been given to understand that they may vote it* they please, but will have nothing to do with the campaign. By this policy, they claim. Mr. Mahone has gained the support of strong demo crats all over the state. 'ihev say that they are gaining the support of prominent democrats about Petersburg. WHAT GEN.

Mahone's firm supporters and still a personal friend of that gcntlrm;in. stated to him that General Mahono did not expect to be elected but he expected to control the Virginia delega tion in the next republican convention, and the '-kickers" having left the party he will secure what he desires.

A GIGANTIC RAILROAD SCHK.MK. Grand Consolidation of 27.000 Mile* ot Road In the Welt Cmc*90, Oct 16.?The Tritmn* this morning j ?ays there is now being arranged and soon will | be consummated a gigantic consolidation of all the Gould and Huntington system* and the Topeka, Atchison and Santa Fe systems. in- j eluding some of the lines between Kunsas City : and Chicago, to afford the line* west of ths 1 Missouri rivers direct and independent outlet to Chicago. The roads between the Missouri river and Chicago to lie taken into the new combination are Chicago. Milwaukee and St. Paul; Chi cago. Santa Fe and Caliloruia and the Wabash. The total length of all lines operated by the new combination will be 27.096 mile*, as fol lows: Wabash railroad. mtUs; Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul. 5.678; Atchison, To peka aud Santa Fe, 7.706; Denver and Rio Grande Western, 373; Musouri Pacific, 4.994; Southern Pacific. 5.931. Total. 27.090. The St. Paul, 1.466; Denver and Rio Grande being the only line in the combination that runs to all Missouri river points and the northwest, in fact competes with all road* north of the lines of the Huntington-Gonld combina tion. can therefore be used to excellent advan tage to make war ilpou roads trying to demor alize the traffic of the allied roads. But aside from tins the Milwaukee and St. Paul is to be made the principal.Cliicago outlet for the Cen tral Pacific's through traffic. It connects with Gould's Missouri Pacific at Kansas City; the I latter has a direct line to Pueblo. Colorado j Springs and Denver, aud at those points con | nects with the Deuverand Bio Grande, which is at onco to be transformed into a bioad guage line, the contracts for broad-iniagiug it having been awarded last week. The latter I connects with the Central Pacific ^Southern Pacific) at O^den. HOW THE TRurriO WILL BF DIVIDED. The Wabash is to get the traffic of this through line going directly east via Toledo, The Missouri Pacific and Wabash are to share the traffic to St. Louis and via St. Louis to the east. The Santa Fe will be allowed to give all its traffic from the Pacific coast and all points wost of the Musouri river to its Chicago, Santa Fe and California line, which will give it all the business it can handle between Kau?as City and Chicago. The Southern Pacific will have besides an independent hue ^rail and water) via N< w Or leans to the eastern seaports and can there take care of the competition by the Canadian Pacific and the northern routes via the Union Pacific and the Xortheru Pacific. The Tribune refers to the appointment ot Traffic Manager J. C. Stubbsof the Huntington Southern Pacific system as second vice presi dent of the Milwaukee and St. Paul, and says: "Nothing but the desire of Mr. Huntington to place Mr. Stubbs in supreme charge of the traffic affairs of the new combination could have induced him to let Mr. Stubbs s< ver his connection with the Southern Pacific. His transfer to the Milwaukee and St. Paul indi cates that Mr. Stubbs is to couduct the traffic affairs of the allied lines from this city and that he is to take particular care of the South ern Pacific through traffic atta rs."
