parties. Mr. Justice Davis said, in Grant v. United States, 7 Wall.
331, at page 338, 19 L. Ed. 194:
"The only remaining point in the case relates to the rescission by Secretary
Cameron of the order of the 9th of March. This proceeding was undoubtedly
taken because the supplies needed in Arizona could be either purchased there
at cheaper rates, or forwarded more securely from St. Louis. Whether the
conduct of the Secretary of War was or was not justifiable is not a question
to be considered in deciding this suit; for the claimant has not shown a
state of case on which he could recover if the rescinding order had never
been made. The contract entitled him to furnish, at certain prices, all the
supplies that might be needed in Arizona until the 20th of March, 1862. To
enable him to recover for a breach of this contract, he should have proved
that supplies were needed at the posts in Arizona after the rescinding order
was made, and the pecuniary loss he sustained in not being allowed to furnish
them. This he has wholly failed to do."
I think the judgment should be reversed.

of the cement company, such employes, though hired and paid by the
railroad company, were servants of the cement company and fellow
servants of the employs of that company, for one who has the right to.
control the doing of the work is the "master."
