St. Joseph, Mich., May 19. - (Special) - This afternoon a large amount of wreckage from the Chicora was found at Double L gap, a mile and a half north of here. Soon a large crowd had gathered and was eagerly searching for pieces. The pieces consisted of mahogany pieces of cabin and pieces of furniture. This is conclusive evidence that the lost steamer lies in shoal water not far from the shore. The pieces are badly waterlogged and many of them look as though they had just splintered off. It is said that the pieces could not become so waterlogged if they had been floating. As soon as the weather moderates the second searching party will be put at work in this locality, as it is the second time after a storm that fresh broken pieces have come ashore
