In 1897 he became contributor to the "Országos Hirlap," and in 1898 editor of the parliamentary column of the "Budapesti Napló." In 1902 he was elected a member of the most prominent Hungarian literary society, Petöfi Társaság, in recognition of the services which he had rendered to Hungarian literature.
