STREET NAMES COMBINED WASHINGTON AVENUE TO INCLUDE THREE. Upper-Alton Makes Move to Simplify Street Noineiifluttire, hi the Al- (ons, Ky Alterations, The village board of Upper Alton last evening voted to plmpll'fy street nomenclature.'.in' the Altons by changing the names of three streets, Garden, Manning and Liberty streets, to Washington avenue. The three streets run Into, each other and are , G Is practically one long street, and furthermore furthermore they are simply an extension extension of Washington street. The naming will not result in any confusion confusion a§y the part in Alton will 'be known was* Washington street and that in Upper Alton as Washington avenue. This will make practically one long paved street from Second and Washington in Alton to Salu square in Upper Alton. It is expected expected that the confusion which has heretofore existed will be wiped out and that the public will appreciate the'change—at least the visiting public public trying to locate itself will be glad of It, as it will be possible to know what street a person is on. Invisible Invisible lines have hitherto marked the limits of the streets, but it will be Washington all the way, now.
