I know that league,

is a distance measuring unit, (unserviceable with the decimal system we use), but what is a cable ?????
I mean besides a sheathed conductor.

Her Majesty's Hydrographer of the Navy defines a cable as one tenth of a "Sea Mile". One wonders if a sea mile is capable of bearing a different definition to a nautical mile!

Ah, the joys of terminological inexactitudes!
