Thanks!  However I am new to lilypond, could you please point me to an example illustrating how global block is used in this way.  I guess this situation should be common in orchestral scores, although many projects in mutopia (including the the I received) don't do these kind of things properly   :(

Now I have another problem.  Suppose I want to insert tempo to the
conductors score at specific places (not only at the beginning of the
score), and I want these tempo marks (e.g. Allegretto crotchet = 76) printed
only *once* on top of the system on the conductor's score, but these tempo
marks must be reproduced in each parts score.  How can this be done?

If I enter the tempo marks in each part, then they will also be printed on
top of each part in the conductor's score, which is undesirable.  However if
I only enter the tempo marks on the top instrument (flute, which is what
have been done in the project I received), then all the other parts will
have no tempo indications!

What should I do?

What I do for this sort of thing is to make a separate block for global things.  In the global block I put rehearsal marks, time signatures, repeats, special barlines...and tempo markings.

When I create the full score I put the global block with the top staff in the score.  For each part I simply include the global block.  This should do exactly what you're after.
