Hungarian jurist and deputy; born at Nyirbator Jan. 6, 1839. He studied law in Budapest and Vienna, and in 1875 was elected to the Hungarian Parliament as representative of his native city. He has retained his seat from that time up to the present (1904); he became a member of the law committee in 1881, and has taken a prominent part in framing the laws concerning guardianship, copyright, and the office of royal notary public. His parliamentary speeches in 1878 against capital punishment aroused much attention, as did those in 1884 in the cause of religious freedom, and in 1885 against the anti-Semites.
