The liability of an innkeeper to a guest originates in contract and a violation of such duty may be treated as a breach of contract.1 If a servant of the innkeeper points a revolver at the son of a guest and the revolver is discharged, injuring such son, the innkeeper may be held upon the theory of contract.2 The injured party may hold the innkeeper on the theory of tort in case of injury to the property of the guest by the innkeeper's negligence.3
