This is an image of a newspaper article that mentioned Judge Theodosius Botkin (see the yellow-highlighted area on its left side) and then discussed the assassination of Samuel Newitt Wood.

The hit man, James Brennan, was paid $500 to kill Wood.

In the years since 1891, various books and articles have been written about the incident, and many of them have detailed Botkin's role in Wood's death. Transcripts of several of them are available online, and they can be found by doing a search for "Theodosius Botkin Sam Wood."
