That's X's job.  Put it into ~/.Xresources:

Emacs*font:                        fixed
Emacs*foreground:                  wheat
Emacs*background:                  black
Emacs*cursorColor:                 green
Emacs.geometry:                    105x48-58+28
Emacs.dialog*.background:          LightSteelBlue1
Emacs.dialog*.foreground:          DarkRed

Then run "xrdb -merge ~/.Xresources".
