Tesla coils joined in single base wire connection format connect by conduction. Tesla lodged his first patent application that said transmission and then set out another Patent with virtually the only difference being the word conduction. It appears that the engineers at the time didn't get the conduction thing. And he didnt mean by EM he meant by wire connection. A simple single wire system I have built demonstrates conduction through one wire not magnetic transfer of power since both coils are 180 degrees out of phase. If they were acting as a transformer or by electromagnetic connection they would need to be out of phase to transmit energy using magnetic energy. It uses voltage and Amperage to do the job. Sure, it puts out a little EM radiation but very limited and usesless in the process since it is out of phase.
