Jim really puts himself on the line for Tom. At that point Jim still thinks he is a wanted slave runner yet he stops and helps Tom as much as he can. Indeed the doctor was impressed stating that Jim might have saved Tom's life. Tom treats Jim's escape like a game. He makes it elaborate and silly. Tom is more concerned with his grand plans than he is about Jim's welfare. Jim is the more humane one.
