On the authority of Babbitt v. Dutcher, ante, p. 216 U. S. 102, held that:
A court of bankruptcy has jurisdiction to grant an order for examination of a witness who resides in that district although the bankrupt proceedings in which the examination is desired are being administered in another district.
The respective district courts of the United States sitting in bankruptcy have ancillary jurisdiction to make orders and issue process in aid of proceedings pending and being administered in the district court of another district.
The facts are stated in the opinion.
