What would Lom do if the governor said "enough's enough - time to arrest Heyes and Curry and put them in prison where they belong."
Would he do it?

Knowing everything the boys had done in good faith, I don't think he would arrest them. I think he would tell them to run - go to Mexico. Then he would tell the Governor he didn't know where they were.

I agree with storm, which is why I think the governor would never have this discussion with Lom in the first place. Why would he want to place a well-respected lawman in this predicament? If the governor really felt it was time to arrest Heyes and Curry why would he tell a friend of theirs knowing there would be an excellent chance the friend would warn them? Why not simply ask Lom to deliver a message to them, and then have Lom shadowed by other lawmen. Tell those lawmen to wait until Lom has left Heyes and Curry, and then arrest them.

Oooh oohh
Bunny alert

Suppose the governor WANTED the boys to give up and go to South America
He can't grant amnesty for political reasons
But he knows a lot of mud will fly if he arrests them as the amnesty offer story will come out
He's under a lot of pressure to arrest them from some massed big wigs
He thinks - lightbulb - I'll give the order to Lom, he'll warn 'em - but not say so - so I can take my oath I'm in clear
Lom DOES warn 'em
Heyes works out the convoluted motives
Boys don't run
Get arrested = but are going to sell their story (or Clem is gonna sell it for them)
So Governor has to arrange a jail break
And - the deal is where it always was
'Call that a good deal'

Oohhh . Mulls.

I too do not believe Lom would arrest them. They have done too much helping out the governor with odd jobs to friends and have proven themselves to be honestly trying to be good.

However, if this came to pass...I reckon Heyes should go ahead and pull Big Jim's Denver Mint job. If 'n the boys have to go live in South America, well, do it with style and go out with style.

I think Lom would react badly to the governor's order. After all, he put his own friendship with the boys on the line by acting as the go-between. IMHO, he would be torn between duty to the law and loyalty to his ex-gang leaders. Perhaps he would do something sneaky and clever, like going through the motions of carrying out the governor's plan, but casually blabbing the plan to the right 'chatty' person who might let it slip out (Harker) and alert the press.
