Second: They shall take priority to all garnishments for the contract debt made prior or subsequent to the commencement of the furnishing of the materials or performance of the labor without regard to the date of filing the claims for lien.

Third: They shall be preferred to all other titles, liens, or encumbrances which may attach to or upon such oil or gas wells, oil or gas derricks, oil tanks, oil or gas pipe lines, machinery, fixtures or appurtenances or upon the leasehold upon which they are situated, which shall either be given or recorded subsequent to the commencement of the furnishing of the materials or performance of the labor.
