The district court of the United States, sitting in bankruptcy, had power to decree a sale of the mortgaged property of a bankrupt, and if there are more mortgages than one, and the proceeds of sale are insufficient to discharge the eldest mortgage, the purchaser will hold the property free and clear of all encumbrances arising from the junior mortgage.
