(2) When the taking of an account shall be necessary for the information of the court, before judgment upon an issue of law, or for carrying a judgment or order into effect; or,
(3) When a question of fact other than upon the pleadings shall arise, upon motion or otherwise, in any stage of the action; or,
(4) When it is necessary for the information of the court in a special proceeding.
