Is this Soapy Smith along the Alaskan trails?

This is definitely one of my favorite trail photographs in my personal collection. I just put it on the main website and it's one of the 54 photographs in the book. It shows a shell and pea operator running a game along one of the trails outside Skagway 1897-1898. Because of the clothing and hat there is a possibility that this is Soapy himself! If not then it is certain to be a member of the infamous Soap Gang.
