Benton Harbor, Mich., May 14 - (Special) - Several pieces of Chicora wreckage were picked up late to-day at Devil's Hole, one mile north of here on the lake shore, with silver trimmings attached, showing that it came from the clerk's office and the main deck. The moldings bearing the silver bracket showed a recent break, as though torn off by late washings of the waves. President J. H. Graham telegraphed the searching crews that are now working from Saugatuck down to Holland to transfer all search from that locality to South Haven, from thence southward to St. Joseph. It is evident from these pieces that the boat is lying not far from here in shallow water, not over thirty feet deep, and is affected by the heavily rolling seas that have raged during the past two days.
