Try switching the 2 soaker hoses. You'll probably find that the one you moved to the end now has the same problem. That's because the pressure is weaker that far out. If you want to get water to the far end, you have a couple of choices:
1: replace the one on the end with one that allows more flow
2: temporarily replace the near one with a regular hose, so the water will still have pressure by the time it gets to the end one.
