  26 августа (7 сентября) 1856 г., на 4 года раньше намеченного срока, состоялось торжественное открытие канала, приуроченное к дню коронации нового Императора. Во время праздничного фейерверка в Выборгском замке вспыхнул пожар, нанёсший значительный урон ансамблю.
  В строительство канала были вложены более 12 млн. серебряных марок, но эта сумма была меньше сметной, и расходы “окупились” значительно быстрее, чем ожидалось, — за 25 лет. /* Жалкие 25 лет, Карл! */
1896, an electric car built by the Riker Electric Motor Company wins the first auto race in the US, at the Narragansett Trotting Park–a mile-long dirt oval at the state fairgrounds that was normally used for horse racing–in Cranston, Rhode Island.

On September 7, 1903, the FAM (Federation of American Motorcyclists) was officially formed during a meeting of 93 enthusiasts at a clubhouse in Brooklyn. The meeting was chaired by George H. Perry, and one notable attendee was George M. Hendee of the Indian Motocycle Company, who brought 109 membership pledges from the New England area.

A constitution was drawn up, and officers appointed, with R.G. Betts of New York as president. Article I, section 2 of the constitution of the newly created FAM stated: “Its objects shall be to encourage the use of motorcycles and to promote the general interests of motorcycling; to ascertain, defend and protect the rights of motorcyclists; to facilitate touring; to assist in the good roads movement; and to advise and assist in the regulation of motorcycle racing and other competition in which motorcycles engage.” The constitution also recorded annual membership dues of $2, and named several committees, including: Membership; Legal Action; Competition; Roads, Touring and Hotels; and Transportation and Facilities.
1914 Monday
Germany reported ready for peace; Oscar Straus and diplomats confer with Secretary Bryan.

  Mit einem persönlichen Telegramm an den US-amerikanischen Präsidenten Woodrow Wilson versucht der deutsche Kaiser Wilhelm II., die bislang im Krieg neutrale US-Regierung in Washington zu einer deutschfreundlichen Haltung zu bewegen. Dabei weist Wilhelm II. auf angebliche Greueltaten französischer und britischer Soldaten sowie der belgischen Zivilbevölkerung hin.

Though the war is less than one month old the British government has announced that 15,000 of its men have died to date.
Canada: Shell committee first meets: 32,449 troops parade at Valcartier Camp.

  Die russische Regierung in Petrograd untersagt den Verkauf von Spirituosen im gesamten Land für die Dauer des Krieges. In der Vergangenheit kam es wiederholt zu Problemen mit angetrunkenen Soldaten und Zivilisten.

British submarine strikes German warships in Bremerhaven Harbor.
Pacific Cable cut between Banfield and Fanning Island by Nurnberg.
Belgium: Officers tell of German atrocities; charges that Germans destroyed Dinant and shot many inhabitants.
 Fall der Festung Maubeuge (40 000 Gefangene, [377] Geschütze erbeutet, 14 Festung). / Mauberge captured by the Germans with many prisoners and guns.

It is now plain that the German march on Paris has been deflected; Allies force Germans back in 160-mile battle from Nanteuil-le-Hardouin to Verdun and report defeat of Crown Prince’s army; Germans defeat Belgians near Melle and march to occupy Ghent; repulsed at Capelle-au-Bois.

Struggle on the Ourcq and Petit-Morin.
Marne: Maunoury in great peril; Gallieni sends 6,000 reserves (brigade of 7th Division) and rushes them in 600 Paris motor taxicabs (‘Taxis of the Marne’) 18 ½ miles to the Ourcq (night 7–8) with others by road and railway.

BEF’s advance, delayed by Kluck’s armoured car screen and picked detachments, now reaches river Petit Morin in the ‘gap’. D’Esperey pushes back Bülow’s right wing for 6 miles. Moltke to his wife: ‘This day is the decisive day’.
Sir John French's first despatch (published on 9th).

  Le 7 septembre: Maunoury cherche enfin à déborder Von Kluck par le nord pendant que le reste de son armée pousse en direction de l'Ourcq. Les deux actions échouent. Von Kluck rappelle alors ses deux autres corps pour en finir avec Maunoury, quitte à agrandir la brêche existante et dégarnir l'aile gauche de Von Bülow. Risque considérable, mais la 6° armée ne peut tenir face à une 1ère armée allemande au complet. La brêche n'est masquée que par 2 corps de cavalerie et une division de flanc-garde. Or l'un de ces corps de cavalerie se replie, ouvrant carrément la voie aux britanniques.
  La BEF avance, mais sans connaitre l'existance de ce vide. Ils auraient pu prendre à revers le 2° corps allemand, autre occasion manquée. La 5° armée, épuisée, avance prudemment, franchit le grand Morin et s'arrête peu aprés.
  Les 9°, 4° et 3° armées françaises résistent aux coups de butoirs allemands.
I  l n'y eut rien de décisif ce jour là. Le seul événement majeur est la chute du camp retranché de Maubeuge au terme de dix jours de siège, alors que la place aurait pu tenir plus longtemps si elle avait été mieux commandée.
Sir John French, commander in chief of the BEF, begins his first official dispatch from the front during Great War, summarizing the events of the first several weeks of British operations.

…исполняя желание Жоффра, Бэкон обстрелял своими 3 мониторами гавань Остенде; в помощь им были приданы мониторы «Генерал Кроуфорд» (два 12-дм орудия), М-25 (одно 9.2-дм орудие) и броненосец «Редутейбл» — бывший «Ривендж».
День был ясный, и герм. батареи отвечали исключительно хорошо с дистанции 90 каб. Их огонь был настолько действенен, что мониторам пришлось отойти. Они были счастливы, что ушли благополучно, т.к. оказалось, что 28-см орудия батареи «Тирпиц» могут метко стрелять до дистанции 160 каб. Результаты действий обеих сторон были так же незначительны, как и первый раз.

Zeppelin raid on east coast of England, 50 casualties, 7 killed. / Luftangriff auf die Londoner Hafenanlagen.

Two Army Zeppelins successfully bombed London on 7–8 September: SL 2 dropped bombs on the Isle of Dogs, Deptford, Greenwich and Woolwich, and LZ (44) 74 was forced to drop weight on its approach and scattered 39 bombs over Cheshunt, before heading on to London and dropped devices on Bermondsey, Rotherhithe and New Cross. Eighteen people were killed and 28 injured, property damage totalled £9,616. Fog and mist prevented any aircraft taking off, but anti-aircraft guns fired at LZ 74 with no effect.

Although these raids had no significant military impact, the psychological effect was considerable. The writer D.H. Lawrence described the raid in a letter to Lady Ottoline Morrell:
* Then we saw the Zeppelin above us, just ahead, amid a gleaming of clouds: high up, like a bright golden finger, quite small (…)
* Then there was flashes near the ground — and the shaking noise.
* It was like Milton — then there was war in heaven. (…)
* I cannot get over it, that the moon is not Queen of the sky by night, and the stars the lesser lights.
* It seems the Zeppelin is in the zenith of the night, golden like a moon, having taken control of the sky; and the bursting shells are the lesser lights.
