I believe E is right.

only one in the east had (granted)

did - means no longer true
had - is probably still true

Compromising parallelism D looks promising to me.

granted permission.

My explanation was not clear.

The sentence is saying by 1914 - meaning it is talking about a time frame here. did is used to talk about a specific time and is inapropriate here.

In 1914 New Jersey did - is correct
By 1914 New Jersey had - is correct

I still stand by E
