(770 ILCS 55/7) (from Ch. 82, par. 55)
    Sec. 7. Should the original contractor in any case fail to complete the contract, any person entitled to a lien may file a complaint in the circuit court in any county through which the road may be constructed, against the railroad corporation and the contractors, setting forth the nature of his claim, and the amount due as near as may be, and the fact that the contractor has failed to complete the contract. The clerk of that court shall thereupon cause a notice to be published for 4 successive weeks in a newspaper printed in the county, setting forth that the complaint has been filed, and the time when process issued on the same shall have been made returnable, and all persons entitled to liens under this act may enter their appearance and interplead in the cause, and have their claims adjudicated; and it shall be the duty of the court, in case the petitioner or claimants, or either of them, establish their claims, to enter a judgment against the corporation and original contractor, for the amount to which the persons so establishing their claims are respectively entitled, and such judgment shall have the same force and effect as judgments in other civil cases.
