  paid  by  the parties, to hear and report upon or to hear and determine:
  (1) any action, claim, matter, motion or special proceeding  pending  in
  the  city  court  of  the  city of New York, referable by statute or the
  rules and practice of said court, in which the justice making the  order

  stenographer should be required in the action, claim, matter, motion  or
  proceeding, such stenographer shall be selected by said referee from the
  official  stenographers  of  the city court and the parties shall not be
  required to pay any of the fees of  such  stenographer  for  taking  the
