2. That the following-named defendants are, and at all times herein mentioned were, corporations duly organized and existing under the laws of the state of California, to wit: [Here follow names of defendants alleged to be corporations.]

3. That on or about the 6th day of September, 1904, the defendant McKown & Co. agreed and entered into a contract with plaintiff to build and to furnish the material and labor necessary to build a house for her for residence purposes, on lots (here described], for the contract price or sum of $8,183; that plaintiff was on September 6, 1904, ever since has been, and now is, the owner in fee, and as her separate property, of said lots.

4,5. [Here follow averments as to the terms of said contract; as to work done, labor and materials furnished thereunder, and pay. ments made thereon; as to abandonment of the contract by the defendant contractors before completion of the building, and completion of the work by the plaintiff under other contracts thereupon made.]

That, in addition to the $3,682.35 paid to said McKown & Co. as aforesaid, plaintiff was obliged to and did pay for the material and labor actually and necessarily used in completing said house, as above alleged, the further sum of $7,581.79, or $3,081.14 more than the whole contract price thereof, and said $7,581.79 was the fair and reasonable cost and expenses of the completion of said house; that on said 29th day of September, 1904, the value of the work and materials already done and furnished, including materials delivered or on the ground, estimated as near as may be by the standard of the whole contract price, was less than the sum of said three payments, aggregating the sum of $3,682.35.

6. That each and every of the defendants herein other than said McKown & Co. claim, or are assignees of persons who claim, to have furnished materials or labor, or both, to be used, and which they assert actually were used, by said firm in the construction of said

house prior to its abandonment of the building thereof, and claim that the said firm of McKown & Co. is indebted to them for and on account thereof, and are asserting that they have, or are entitled to have, liens upon said house and lots for the value of the same; but plaintiff is unable to state whether the demands of all or any of said parties are just, or are the precise amounts due to them respectively from said McKown & Co. on account of such labor and materials. Some of said defendants have served written notice on plaintiff that said firm of McKown & Co. was indebted to them for work or labor done in performance of said contract, and have notified plaintiff to withhold moneys sufficient to pay their demands, and other defendants have filed notice with the recorder of such Los Angeles County, claiming liens on said property under part III, title IV, chapter II, of the Code of Civil Procedure, and still others of them are threatening to do so; and plaintiff alleges that unless restrained, defendants will bring separate actions against her to assert their said claims, and she will be harassed and put to great and needless expense in defending said actions.

Wherefore, plaintiff prays: That each and every of the defendants herein be perpetually enjoined from filing or in any way asserting claims or liens of any kind against said property or any part thereof, except in this action; that those of them who have already commenced separate actions against plaintiff be enjoined from making any further efforts towards enforcing said claims in said actions; that the same be declared without foundation; that it be adjudged that plaintiff is not indebted to said McKown & Co. on account of said contract or at all, and that there is no fund in plaintiff's hands for the payment of laborers or materialmen; and for costs and all other proper relief.
