In fact the telegraph is so simple it would be hard *not* to invent.
It would qualify, like the steam tractors, as non-Spark technology.
It is also quite robust.
So we actually need a reason for the telegraph *not* to exist.
Given the minmoths as an example, there may be some artificial life
form with an appetite for wire that has "naturalized" and makes wire
communications next to impossible. Such a creation could easily have
been produced during the Spark vs Spark Long War to deal with Sparks
that relied on such communications.
Heck, it might *be* the minmoths. Those tusks could be effective wire
cutters. More likely though, it's something that can burrow or fly
