Not illustrated. 1900 edition. Excerpt: ...or other corporation could be held responsible for the acts and conduct of any agent emPl)'d $0 Superinteud and control its subem ployees, It is comPlained that this charge excluded from the consideration of the jury that the city retained the general supervision of the 'luerry. In one sense that is true; but not more so in this case than corporations have occupied in many other cases in which, under repeated adjudications of this court, they have been held resPl1Sible for the negligent acts of sub-bosses towards emP1)'ees under their immediate control. This record fails to Show that any other oflicial, agent, or employee of the city than J0)' had anything whatever to do with superintending the con duct of the work and directing the laborers engaged therein. In Bain v. Athens Foundry, 75 Ga. 719 (2), it was decided: "Although two persons were employed by the same master, yet where one of them was employed as a blaster for the purpose of removing certain rocks on the master's property, and alone had charge of the work of blasting, and the other had nothing to do with it, but was employed as a 'ood-workman in the foundry of the master, they were not fellow-servants in the legal sense of the term, and a charge based on that assump. tion was erroneous, though it may have been a correct abstract statement." In Blackman v. Thomson-Houston Co., 102 Ga. 64, it was decided: "While the person occupying the inferior position is, in a broad and general sense, a coemployee, he is not a fellow-servant with the person in authority over him, in the sense he' could not recover for injuries sustained by him in consequence of the negligence of such person."
