THE SLAV POPULATION OF AUSTRIA-HUNGARY.
[TO THE EDITOR OF THE "SPECTATOR.']
Sin,—In your last issue the number of Magyars in Austria and Hungary is given as 9,000,000. Allow me to point out
that at the end of 1910, in Hungary alone—including, of course, Croatia—there were 10,050,575 Magyars, forming rather more than 48 per cent, of the whole population. The number of Magyar speakers in Hungary was nearly 12,000,000, or more than 52 per cent, of the whole. It is important that these facts should be known, as in more than one work of reference for the present year very incorrect statistics respecting Hungary are given.—I am, Sir, &e., W. H. SHRUBSOLE,
Literary Agent, Royal Hungarian State Railway.
