Such magnetic coupling would have a high intrinsic impedance, and therefore would be very questionable for telegraphic operation.
This is similar to the idea (wives tale) that a farmer can use a wire running along a power line to run things like welders and house appliances. Even though you can get a voltage, the maximum power transfer theorem gets in the way. e.g. you'll only get a few milli-amperes out of it due to the transformed impedance at the load point. You might be able to run a small LED, but that's about it.
