Tree Stump over electric lines

I have a tree stump near the side of my house that I want to get rid of. It's not a huge tree, more like a weed that grew in to a tree for years before I owned the house. I called the electric company to mark where electric runs and they marked right on the stump meaning there's electric running right under. So this will be difficult to remove manually. Any suggestions?

Bearded iris from seed

I've read about collecting and planting the seeds, etc. But it said to keep them outside and still water them. I think not in Illinois. What about putting them in the basement or the garage until it gets too cold in there?

Lilac mildew?

My lilac bush has a green buildup on all the branches with very little leaf foliage. The few leaves appear to be healthy. The bush is over 20 years old. Is my problem mildew and what can I use to treat my bush?

Nitrogen deficient gardening mix

I recently had garden mix delivered. I was told that it was 30%topsoil, 30% organic compost and 30% sand. Just for kicks I tested the soil and surprisingly the nitrogen was completely depleted. Did I get what I paid for? Can I add bone meal as an organic way to add nitrogen before planting my vegetable plants and/or seeds (I have read that it also deters rabbits) or is there another way to organically add nutrients that would be available to the plants immediately.
